Occupy Wall Street Sign of the Day



More pepper-spray cop photos everyday....



12:05 AM: Paul Krugman, Things to Tax (Plutocrats and the casino).

8:37 PM: Chalk One Up for the 99% (This is about an electoral victory in Ohio, but can I just say, I really HATE the notion of seeing police eviction of peaceful protesters as a positive).

10:06 PM: This is the real strength of the Occupy Movement - it's ability to spawn countless individual actions. It's as if everyone, everywhere suddenly turned up the heat on bullshit like this.

9:11 AM: Labor history minute:



9:36 AM: Inside the student movement....

9:39 AM: Victory at Occupy LA...

9:41 AM: Jeffery Sachs on Robin Hood tax (Doug Henwood recently interviewed him and sets forth why he's a mixed bag)...



9:46 AM: Glenn Greenwald on Democracy Now! (squeee...):



10:15 AM: I love Chris Hedges....

10:19 AM: Fergawdsakes, a teenager said her adult Governor sucks - she also probably thinks he's lame. The Governor of Kansas is really fixated on this? You think this guy spends all day googling himself? (Not in the 30 Rock way, in the computer way):



10:34 AM: Another blow to habeas corpus (this is actually a really big fucking deal).

10:58 AM: MBNBS announces it has no standards hired Megan McCain (so, at NBC there's Luke Russert, Chelsea Clinton and Megan McCain....) Mainstream media in its death throes; long live People's Media.

11:41 AM: We Are the 1%.

12:31 PM: Mother Jones rolls in her grave....

2:51 PM: Occupy LA eviction postponed....

3:52 PM: When only The Onion can do a story justice...

3:58 PM: Scott Olsen interview...



5:04 M: Digby on Barney Frank - I Miss Him Already.

5:22 PM: So, it looks like the Treasury was opened up for the banks, no questions asked, but as soon as they were on their feet, the doors were sealed up tight and Main Street was left to suffer and ultimately, to pay for Wall Street's excesses.

  1. The bill about suspending habeus corpus....WTF.

    if this actually becomes law, Bin Laden and AlQaida win. It's exactly what he wants to happen, our society starts to degrade, we lose our freedoms, and next thing you know the police are pepper spraying college students for the hell of .....oh, crap never mind.
