Occupy Phoenix

The banksters of Wall Street are responsible for the current global economic meltdown. US legislators are either afraid of the banksters or are on the take. Young people, fresh out of college or trade school are unable to find work, unless they want to ask, “Do you want fries with that?” or “Paper or plastic?” That is, if they are lucky enough to find work at all. This is why young people are gathered in Wall Street at this very moment. The wealthy one per cent of the American population must be sent a message that we are not going to take it anymore. Vietnam was ended by youth demonstrating in the streets.  When Nixon invaded Cambodia, these youth were joined by Nixon’s ‘silent majority’. Black Americans, among the many disenfranchised citizens of this nation, ceased being delegated seats at the back of the bus and segregated bathrooms, and were finally able to vote because of the actions of young people. Wall Street is unique. It is in New York City. Each city has a financial district. Occupy your local financial districts. Show the ueber rich that we are the People! October fifteenth is the designated Arizona Day of Rage. You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Be a part of the solution. Go to Cesar Chavez Plaza, at 201 West Washington Street, in Phoenix, on October fifteenth, and join your countrymen. The time is noon; the time is NOW! Fox News admonished parents to come to the Wall Street demonstrations and retrieve their children because they were an irritant. Parents, go to these demonstrations. Join your children. Take back America!


About Stefan Jacke

MagicRobert presented me with a vellum document, composed in an insane script. We were in a well secured vault in the Michener Library. His face exploded into a broad smile, as he saw me recognize the words, "That government governs best which governs least." It was a copy of "On Civil Disobedience" in the author's own hand. The experience called to mind a conversation Henry David Thoreau had with Ralph Waldo Emerson, as Thoreau sat in a jail cell, incarcerated for protesting the Mexican War. Emerson asked, "David, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau responded, "The point is, Ralph, what are you doing out there?" Once, long ago, I jumped off of big red trucks, lifted weights, and cleaned toilets for a living. Then I wrestled drunks, ran around in circles, and got splattered with blood and all manner of body fluids for a living. Now I enjoy the stillness of early morning in my rocking chair on the porch, with a hot cup of coffee, trying in vain to forget the past. Thank you, Robert!
