Occupy Everything

A 63-post collection

Dear Moneymakers, (an open letter)

And by this, I mean all corporate “persons”, executives, super-rich and basically, everyone who is making their money by just having money.

You’re doing it wrong.

Current economic theory states that if you give enough money to the already-rich, some of it will inevitably “trickle down” to the lower classes, the world will become everyone’s oyster and we’ll all be knee deep in pearls.

Everyone not amongst the already-rich knows this theory

One important lesson on economics from someone who's picked up on a few things...

Put basically: If they’re offering it to plebes like you, the bubble is about to burst.

There are numerous economic bubbles in past and present. The stock bubble. The internet bubble. The housing bubble. The quantum chocolate bubble. Okay, I just wish there was a quantum chocolate bubble…

The point is, bubbles are just like pyramid schemes. Sooner or later, they’re going to run out of people to sell it to and the whole shebang is going

I'm assuming Anonymous already has plans...

There’s an instruction manual containing words that can get anyone who uses them on a terrorist watch list just for using them online.

Lots of them can be used in completely innocent ways. For instance: telling all the folks in InternetLand all the words that you’re not allowed to use any more.

How long, folks, before there’s an online competition to use as many of these words as humanly possible

What's happening, OWS?

I do not believe for one second that OWS has fizzled out. Especially overnight.

Given all the laws and whatnot flying around, and the protests and outrage concerning them, I can only guess what’s happened in the space of twenty-four hours

1) They arrested absolutely everybody and haven’t told anyone.

2) They’re censoring everything OWS.

3) Corporate America suddenly realised there’s bugger all elsewhere to go once they’ve finished raping America and

Bank of America Gets Foreclosed

Bank of America has little patience for homeowners who have fallen on hard times and behind on their mortgages.  The lending giant is in the midst of foreclosure battles in every state as well as defending against allegations that they engaged in fraud and misrepresentation during the foreclosure process. 

Given all the increased scrutiny you would think the bank would be extra diligent before pursuing homeowners in court.  Think again.

First the mega-bank wrongfully foreclosed on

OWS idea: shit-stirring kickstarter

So I just had one of those brain farts that can only cause trouble and decided to share. I’m that special ;)

Start a kickstarter project in the US to buy the next president.

Obviously, it has to be long term. Like 2016 type long term. Y'know, since this year is leaving it a little too late to fund a president.

The whole goal is to bring back a government by the people, for the people and of the people by

OWS - I Love That You're Doing Stuff

I love reading the posts about Occupy re-taking houses that were illegally foreclosed upon. I love hearing that Occupy helped prevent an illegal foreclosure.

I love that, despite all the setbacks and prohibitions rising up against it, the People’s Library is still going strong.

I love that people are sharing ideas to get their communities pointed in one direction against a common foe.

But, as I always tell myself [and others] when cleaning up a big mess - there’
