A success story for Occupy LA.

"A single mother facing foreclosure in the Los Angeles area is back in her home for the holidays, after she was evicted two weeks ago, thanks to an Occupy group that helped her force her way in. "

It's B of A, so it's likely only temporary, but it's something......:)

This small ray of sunshine comes on the heals of the alleged arson at Occupy Sandy.

It's awfully nice of the major institutions to suspend foreclosures during the holiday. Too bad they couldn't do anything real, like rewrite all of those loans with the ballooning interest payments before the economy went belly up . . .

the fools

Occupy still exists. At least there's two of us willing to admit it.

I'm sad about what happen at Occupy Sandy.......:(

Though I wonder where all the conspiracy theorists are on that subject.

Busy with their gun fantasies on Christmas I guess.

Long live Occupy and may NO setback, hold us back, until the World is a MUCH batter place than it is today..

Thanks for that........:)

Hope your day at home goes smooth.............:)

Oh, I'm on my way to work. Hope your day goes well. :D We will get the focus back on OWS issues.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Well then, may your work day be smooth and merry........:)

And may those you work for appreciate your efforts.

Though I wonder where all the conspiracy theorists are on that subject.

I was wondering if the arson might have any relationship to Trevor's post on the closing of that aid facility. Both events seem to have a similar result, regardless of intent.

I wonder who voted you down - and what they hope to gain from such blatant ill will toward OWS in general. Fools.

They fail to understand how deeply invested they are in the success of everything OWS stands for. Their own interests at stake, and they cannot see it.

It's funny how that works - bankers and investors intent on self destruction, and not even appeals to consider their own reputations have any effect.

Attempts to bring focus back to the Occupy movement are met with the usual "wedge" issues.

From Mr. P to guns and back again.

May everyone's day be wonderful in spite of that.........:)

In Compliment:

Teach the Children. Take them by the hand and lead them.

We all love our children.

We want them to be happy and care free.

We want them to be healthy and well fed.

We want to see them adequately housed.

We want them to live in a peaceful and prosperous world.

We want them to grow-up strong and independent.

We want them to be able to defend themselves whenever necessary.

We want them to be able and willing to defend the helpless.

We want them to be good and to be responsible.

We want them to be flexible and not fragile.

These wishes for our children will not happen if we do not live up to these principles.

We need to work for a better tomorrow Today.

We need to fight greed and corruption in all it’s forms.

We need to demand, support and implement Green Technology.

We need to teach our children how to defend themselves and why they need to know how. There are plenty of monsters in the world. Sheltering them from this awareness does not help them to be safe and happy. Teach them what bullies are and why they need to stand up to them. Teach them to have confidence in themselves and in their abilities. Teach them the Golden Rule and help them to understand it. We don’t need to confirm or deny God because of the separation of church and state. But we do need to teach them good morals and good fellowship.

All this and more we need to do. We need to promote and support in our communities, in our World.

You mean like "all the conspiracy theorists " as having "gun fantasies?

Jeez, talk about insulting and divisive....

[-] 0 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Every one of those threads became exactly that.

Insulting and divisive.

In honor of the holiday I won't return your attempt at same.

Thank you and have a Merry Christmas.

Agree - may the movements for making a healthy and prosperous world for All Peoples and All LIFE continue to grow in strength.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

May that wish come true for the entire World on this day of celebration....:)

However you celebrate it..........................:)

Occupy solidarity.

Thank you - and I add to your wish - may this be a time of awakening for all peoples.

Occupy Life.

They will do what they can get away with. Its up to us to stand up and make the changes.

At this point, the masses are not interested.

Maybe things will change in 2013.
