Seal – A Change is Gonna Come
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Hi Tut & Suzanne.
Were you up on the MT, Tut?
OWS NYC is being raided now:
Aloha, Ya’ll my humble apologies, Hilo’s GA is still going on right now…! ;-)
It’s totally awesome too…! *g*
jeebus, every night its different city… its as if a giant game of whack-an-occupy is being coordinated on a national level
They’re claiming a fire hazard as excuse …
It’s going to take a whole lot more of us to take to the streets.
Hang in there! We’ll be looking forward to a report. Yea for you and the Hilo GA!
Great statements being made … the livestream is quite something.
Also – h/t to Kit – watching on http://www.ustream.tv/cbsnews
Not allowing press into the part or so it seems
that’s the same think oakland pd did before their first attack on occupy oakland…. iirc they told the media to turn off their cameras and leave
Yep … reports of one of those sound weapons too … not used but available … trains shut down …
David Shuster just tweeted:
In NYC, so much for the 1st amendment and the right to peacefully assemble. A 1am raid/eviction? Mayor Bloomberg, have you no shame?
It does seem as if there was some general, countrywide decision, doesn’t it?
I need to go to bed…dammit, of course, these things are always done late at night, when fewer people are watching. But not no people, as pre-net, pre-twitter, where the #OWS raid is the only subject on my tl.
I’m going to go off to bed; hoping nobody gets hurt. But that they find a way to come back and continue. This has begun to get people’s attention. It’s the beginning of change, I think.
Well…one question? How often are NY subway stations “closed for cleaning?” Josh Harkinson just tweeted that he couldn’t get in to his stop to get to OWS for that reason.
Tweets (don’t know if true) that bulldozers are on the way.
How is it these city governments don’t realize that every time they do this, they make the movement stronger? Would there be more than 400 of them now if Oakland and NYC hadn’t tried to evict theirs?
Aloha, Siun…! Always a delight to see ya…!
Occupy Hilo has a Livestream account that should be updated with tonite’s GA…!
I’m totally stoked, the GA is planning to Occupy after our next GA this Saturday…!
Sam Cooke’s A Change is Gonna Come…
Aloha, Dearie…! I’ll post my reflections on it in a diary tomorrow…! ;-)
Would noise protection work against those sound machines? Or is it the type of sound that affects the whole body? Or are those stupid questions?
We started the GA with a moment of silence for Scott Olsen and all the others injured at the Occupies…!
Aloha, ctuttle – in both meanings. Really…got .. to ..get .. some..sleep. The video is like an accident you can’t look away from. Amazing this is happening in our country.
They affect the whole body, tuez…! It’s a sheer wall of sound that is emitted…!
Sweet dreams, tj…!
That’s what I figured but didn’t know for sure. So anyone in the area, whether they are with Occupy, or not, will get zapped? That should go over well with the area residents.
This about sums up my weather… I Can’t Stand The Rain…
Can you say ‘collateral damage’…?
Is this where we find the resolve to remain nonviolent.
The 1% will prey on the baser instincts of the masses.
Me thinks the collateral damage won’t be impressed. And based on reports from a recent community meeting, I don’t think they will blame the occupiers.
That was the most fundamental rule we all had stressed, repeatedly, during our GAs…! Nobody in attendence seemed violent in any manner whatsoever either…!
I don’t know if you want to watch, but right now cops have taken over Zuccotti park and are clearing out the tents and tarps.
Press aren’t being allowed in.
Live stream here.
I didn’t see the first post. Duh.
Of course you would have it. But the Michael Moore stream as a fun spinning counter. 19,000 people watching!
Our GA is a collection of the most nonviolent people you could find. But i was referring to the larger places in the continent. This movement is still young. Experience wise i mean.
Interestingly, about midway through the GA, two cop cars suddenly showed up with the blues running and a hush fell over us, a car had been broken into, one of the Occupiers saw the whole episode and went over to them and described the perps, the cops asked what we were doing and when they were told Occupy Hilo, they told us to rawk on, and Mahalo for our efforts…! ;-)
The real reason for the tort reform meme just hit me upside the head…
From NYC OWS – tents and belongings being dumped into sanitation trucks … people not even allowed to claim their own possessions.
That is utter Bovine manure…! 8-(
I do hope that some legal action will be taken at least a few of these Occupations that have been completely razed…! I fervently hope that Liberty Park will be reoccupied in even larger numbers tomorrow nite…!
Ct Congratulations on keeping it NV. Have the homeless arrived yet?
Is there any place on this earth where people can gather and share their thoughts and is not illegal. I mean all day every day.
I would add that we’re even contemplating being a mobile Occupation, and able to rotate between either County, State, and even Federal land…! ;-)
Already have the outreach committee set up and raring to go…! ;-)
Be sure to push for Net Neutrality, and become a member or that will go away too.
No the patriot act nullified our right to disagree with the government. We are now terrorists. Although our mothers might disagree.
And that is the interpretation of the patriot act we are allowed to know about.
Aloha, Spocko…! I agree…!
Unfortunately, for the most part, that shit is flying under the radar.
I suggested an RV for the OSLO keep supplies, toilet, cooking…borrow or rent several. The drunks and druggies can make life hard in an occupation. Take care!
One of my favorite graphics is the Bill of Rights with ‘Camping Permit’ scrawled across it…! ;-)
Bingo. Until proven innocent!
I’m in a central locale to service the Occupation, I’ll be screening whom I’ll let shower and shave…! ;-)
Holy crap yes.
And that is redacted.
Welcome to the police state..1984…get in line and move on. The R’s stated in the last debate they will Occupy Iran costing $9 billion to be taken from Soc Sec and Medicare. Russia and China may have something to say. Oh well Frank Zappa was right the Universe is made of stupidity.
As former military you have the tools to keep it orderly. Sounds like all is going swimmingly including the weather. Maybe large tents with cots?
Russia and China may have something to say.
The funny part is that China could cripple us without firing a shot…! Imagine if China shut down all their exports to US…? Just imagine…! 8-(
I don’t understand why the cost of all these warz aren’t counted. It’s like everyone has forgotten them (except for a few enlightened souls).
Not only does the US have a revenue problem, we have a priority problem.
With that I’m going to bed.
Sweet dreams, tuez…!
Obama promised us a change…might not be the one we hoped for.
Seconded and followed. Pleasantness peace.
Oh man i better run out an get another worthless socket set that i can throw away. China is nothing compared to those fucks who own everything.
*heh* Chump Change…! ;-)
Ain’t even ‘Craftsman’ forged in China these days…? ;-)
Obama just attended a big Donor dinner today, $5k a plate, and said it’s great to be home…! Tomorrow morning he’s headed to Australia and then Bali…!
You think attacking Iran will change the tar sands drive.
The tar sands would be hyped ever more, but, with the immediate aftershocks felt straightaway,(think $300-400 per barrel of oil) the House of Cards should have collapsed sufficiently to have the People, themselves stopping all that nonsense…!
“The people themselves” my heart swoons. I just hope Alaska never sends gas to forward that disaster of a project.
Interestingly, Hawai’i gets most of it’s fuel oil from Indonesia, the largest Muslim country, I wonder how they’ll respond…?
Well, I shall bid ya’ll another fond adieu…! Mahalo for ya’lls patience and the great conversation..! I will be posting my reflections on Hilo’s GA tomorrow, please take a gander…!
Aloha Oe…! *g*
Hey Tut i never did get to ask about dark matter and your time on the mountain. I heard the NPR bit and was going to say that now we speculate that dark matter expands so god and creation sucks just like gravity. Consolidating is good and expanding is……..
