((Quote of the Day))

I guess one of the things that motives a lot of people…That I have seen, to actually go out and do something in any different field.

Is that we all sort of eat food that other people cook and where clothing that other people make and speak a languge that other people evolved and use someone else mathematics.

And we all are sort of our taking from this giant pool constantly….and the most ecstatic thing in the whole world is actually putting something back into that pool...

.::Occupy Wall Street Manifesto::..

[Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing demonstration opposing negative corporate influence over U.S. politics and a lack of legal repercussions over the global financial crisis]

..:::Manifesto:::.

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.

They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.

They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. *

To the people of the world,

We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

Join us and make your voices heard!

*These grievances are not all-inclusive.

Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number

And I'll tell and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'

But I'll know my songs well before I start singin'

((Quote of the day))

"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.
The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion."

"As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.
We must disenthrall ourselves and then we shall save our country."

(Quote from December 1862 second annual meeting of Congress)

((Quote of the day))

There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own ...nobody.

You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear.
You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.
You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.

You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did.

“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

((Quote of the day))

The great virtue of a free market is that enables people who hate each other,
or who are are from vastly different religious or ethnic backgrounds,
to cooperate economically.

So long as cooperation is strictly voluntary, no exchanges, will take place unless both parties benefit.

Okay, here's the story. I come from the gutter....I know that....
I got no education...but that's okay.

I know the street, and I'm making all the right connections.
With the right woman, there's no stopping me.
I could go right to the top.

((Quote of the day))

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma ,which is living with the results of
other people's thinking.

Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.....

Hey, Woody Guthrie I wrote you a song
About a funny old world that's coming along
Seems sick and it's hungry, it's tired and it's torn
It looks like it's dying and it's hardly been born

It was an age of miracles, it was an age of art,
it was an age of excess, and it was an age of satire

We were the most powerful nation.
Who could tell us any longer what was fashionable
and what was fun?

Scarcely had the staider citizens of the republic caught
their breaths when the wildest of all generations,
the generation which had been adolescent during the confusion
of the War, brusquely shouldered them out of the way and
danced into the limelight.

The blues is about sculpting meaning out of a situation
