Grant me a moment to reach into the far depths of my soul and pull out a big thank you for jart. It's not wrapped, but it's genuine. Almost single-handedly, she has programmed this wonderful forum which has been my Internet hangout for a month and a half now.

These past few weeks, I have been fortunate to learn so much from the forum's interesting and unique posters. It's here that I was introduced to the true meaning of anarchy, to Graeber, and to the defining ideas of Occupy. This would not have been possible without jart.

She has worked extremely hard, and I'm happy to say that after a few weeks of hiatus she is back! She made a commit today which indicates some intense development is coming our way! https://github.com/jart/occupywallst/commit/d5bb6fc6f019eeb3e4bd43b0e46ed4bb6ce42879

If I have been critical of Occupy, it was only because I wanted it to become the best movement that it could be. God knows we need drastic change to solve the world's many problems. Our governments keep meeting in serious halls for serious discussions, but nothing ever seems to improve. Let's hope Occupy is the spark that begins the ascent of our many civilizations to a new plateau; to never before seen heights of understanding, respect, and accomplishment. Change is desperately needed, and there is no better time than now. We must rise to the occasion to better ourselves. For all of us; for the betterment of manmind. We cannot afford to let this opportunity slip away. We cannot let Occupy become a mere footnote in the annals of history. Occupy is more than a dream, it's a much needed cure for our nations' numerous maladies.

I'm happy to say the latest poster is absolutely gorgeous and doesn't have a hint of violence in it. This is a very big step forward, and I congratulate Occupy for it. Well done!

This one's for jart and Occupy. Thank you for changing me, thank you for changing all of us. Let's assemble once more!

Not untitled

There is no road, only a journey

and the fork that shines bright

is a knife

that cuts both ways


There is no time, only a moment

and that which seems aged and wise

is but a child

with everything to learn


There is no sight, only a picture

and all the rainbows color

is just a mirror

of the artist


There is no place, only an experience

and those that walk with me

become a part of me

as I am surely becoming part of them

Keep up the good work my friend, myself and (if I may presume) occupy appreciate, your efforts of creation, and critical thought.

Personally, I like the picture in this link of the workers throwing their hardhats into the air. Very celebratory! Needs a good artist's rendering.

Excuse me Ms. smarty pants. I want you to know that you and ows are complete morons. You haven't got the faintest idea of what you are protesting. If you really gave a shit about the 99%, you would pack your tent and shit, clean up after yourselves and allow the local businesses (99%) to start having customers come back into their shops/ businesses. You disgusting hippies have ruined public parks all over the U.S.A. (my great country) and because of that, you all should be arrested and deported to Canada/Mexico. If you don't like what we have to offer in my great country, then get the fuck out of here you losers. The Doctor!

I think you should have said Mr. smarty pants. The least you could do is put in a oneliner about the original post. And correct the title (Mr./Ms.) of course.
