OWS is locked into the campsite stuff and of course congress loves it...it is called a distraction. They did an end run on us...campsites were useful in getting everyone's attention but it passed its usefulness 3 weeks ago...How the hell do you get people to understand that we are but one breath away from a police state?

I know I am beyond alarmed. OWS needs to get more and more active in protesting in D.C., especially in front of Capitol Hill. I know that the money trail leads to Wall Street, but right now we have scary bills floating around Congress that will become law; stripping Americans of their life.

It simply can't be ignored.

Calling All Armed Forces Personnel:

The Senate has authorized you to arrest and indefinitely detain all members of Congress and send them to Guantanamo Bay.

Please arrest all members of Congress and send them to Guantanamo indefinitely!
