There wasn't much activity locally but I was expecting huge turnouts in NY SF, ect but I can't find anything anywhere, are those corporate whore news organizations hiding the truth again?

Just lots of front page noise about the Cleveland bombers, I was looking for 'good' news, not front page pics of five bums who were trying to kill citizens.

Jabberwocky is fun because of all the made up words that clearly tell a story.

farmer, In NYC, the high number for the protests given was 25,000 people, and that includes union members who split promptly at 5 PM. More people show up for Mets games. In DC, they have pro-life rallies every year in January that draws at least that number of people and they are basically ignored by the news media, because it's the same old thing. Unless OWS comes up with something new to say, or a new way of saying it, or they stupidly start breaking shit and start pissing off Joe Blow, they will have fallen into the category of "same old thing" too. With that being the case, they are going to have to get their attention in the media the same way everyone else does: By paying for it. Sorry, they're just not that special.

And what the fuck are you doing that is so special?

Nothing.

hchc, I'm not doing a damn thing that is special, but then again I don't expect to see myself or anyone I'm associated with on CNN or the front page of the newspaper either. Like this guy. Did you read his post?
