So, according to Reuters, Bloomberg is getting annoyed by the longevity of OWS. He can hang out with Rob Ford in Toronto and opine for the days of the silent compliance of the 99%. Of course, while the main stream media is going to emphasize that while 51% of the people surveyed disagree with OWS they'll phrase the other percentage as "ONLY' 49%, while the former, represents the majority.

(Media slime job)

"Really? The majority?" We're supposed to say.

"Yes, indeed! and in fact you could all go home now because your message has been delivered, loud and clear. We hear you citizens of the world and it's because of you that we're making changes to secure a brighter tomorrow! So go home, get comfy, and know you've made your point!"

Capitalism always needs to feed. Greed always eats.

Bloomberg sights that there are "crimes" happening at OWS and he's very concerned with the self-policing efforts being ineffectual, alluding that these "crimes" are as a result of the gathering of human beings who are being used and flushed by the 1%.

Never mind the crimes OF the 1% and never mind that crimes happen even where there are NO gatherings and in greater numbers, and never mind that crimes happen as a result of the poverty, the rest of the world is being driven in to.

Never mind that around 95% of crime is financially motivated.

But he hears you.

Ah how wonderful to have a Billionaire on the side of the huddled masses.

Why, even Bill Gates, speaking at the G20 Summit in Cannes France (note that it wasn't held in Harlem or South Central L.A.) says the Robin Hood Tax is a good idea. Well, of COURSE he does! I'm sure the 1% can afford...a1% tax on investment capital.

Uh...

Wait a sec...

Is this really a victory?

NO!

If this, and any/all of the other world movements pack up now...count these efforts as one...big...zero for you and me...bulls eye for the blood sucking system of Capitalism, greed, exploitation and all else that isn't working for you...or me.

Watch this movement go quietly, slowly into the abyss where all the campaign promises go, all of the "we hear you" statements go, all the "time for a change" bullshit goes.

We're controlled again...darn.

Never quit.

I'll say it again...

NEVER QUIT...

And never accept ANYTHING, that wasn't designed by the people as a victory. It's not, and in fact I'd go so far as to say to never accept anything that has been designed within the monetary system, capitalism, corporatism, co-operatvism (new word...disguise for corporation), by any "billion dollar" anyone or anything or any..."ism."

Make a brave new world. No one has the power to "order" your world but YOU...and me.

Peace

I believe this idea if done with everyone participating together, can PERMANENTLY alter our world and country for the better: http://occupywallst.org/forum/i-demand-informed-direct-democracy-online-whos-wit/
