I was in downtown Phoenix, AZ on Saturday October15th for the Occupy effort. I didn’t have the ability to camp (or rather get arrested) at the park because of family things; however, this is my contribution to the effort.
Spiritually-enhanced, philosophy-spewing, technology-loving, hippie-punker with politically-Independent leanings (Independent in this case being prone to reason and rational thought). I believe that we, the people are responsible for ourselves and the planet that we share with so many other species. I am saddened by western society's teaching that we must separate ourselves from each other and amass as much as possible through money, fame and public adoration (usually leading to abhorrence through over-saturation).
Our U.S. democracy is being raped and pillaged by corporations and the over-rich. By the people, for the people is fast becoming a cute historical thought. Big Business (by way of the destined-for-hell lobbyist) has the sheep on Capitol Hill doing their baaaabidding while the masses, the majority, toil away at mindless jobs, eating chemical-laden foods, sitting idly in front of the television, waiting to die.
