Definitely evidence of something having gone wrong.
I’m giving up my current job to run for congress. It certainly has significant dividends that are not available to the average working stiff.

The power of silence.
In case anyone had any question after the pepper spray assault on students on the UC-Davis campus, this video demonstrates that Chancellor Linda Katehi is, to put it euphemistically, toast.
She’s done for.
Whoa! Somebody made boo-boo.
Dr. Cornel West arrested after he led a mock trial against Goldman Sachs in Zuccotti Park. (More information to follow on this as more becomes available).
2011 looks more and more like 1954 every day
soooo they’re arresting one of the smartest people on the planet for being smart in public? great.
That’s right… a second veteran has been injured, pretty severely at Occupy Oakland. Kayvan Sabehgi, who has served with the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, was apparently beaten by three or four policeman after being told to move (and having nowhere to move to). He was arrested and jailed, despite being in poor medical condition and a considerable amount of pain. He is currently in intensive care with a lacerated spleen, let out on bail 18 hours after his arrest.
Now why would he be covering up his name? Hmmm…?
Proof that cops in Oakland were covering up their names so they could not be identified. This does violate policy, as a senior officer made the cop remove the tape over his name. See more here.
Its in most police departments policies that all officers in uniform must show some form of identification. OPD does not wear badges with #’s, how do we hold anyone accountable?
This is a big deal!
Think about what this sign is saying, “Hey, 1%, we’ll do anything we want and you can’t stop us.”
We’ll start seeing more of these public displays of “disobedience” across the country over the next few weeks. It shows the 1% that ultimately they are powerless since the 99% controls everything they have - gasoline, elevators, trash pick-up, food. Money has no intrinsic value, it’s the good money allows you to buy that gives it value.
If there is a class war, it’s going to be very one-sided and very quick.
Class warfare: Bring it on.
“We the People … Occupy Boston”
Sign put up next to the highway into Boston by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers - Local 103
“ At its heart, the Occupy movement is about creating a democratic society in which everyone matters, there is dignity in working together across differences, and there is enough for everyone. Is this vision tantamount to socialism? No. Once upon a time, we called this “American. ”
MASSIVE crowd for Occupy Wall Street today in NYC.
