Occupy Dallas Carries On


Occupy Dallas: Saturday November 19, Dallas Texas

At least the local press seem to be covering Occupy Dallas more fairly–that is a start in the right direction. We are getting the word out there that we are not a bunch of “lazy” people among other things. The fact is that most of us do have jobs and we do care deeply about what is happening to the majority of the people in our country. What the 99% are experiencing is not really that different from the way citizens are treated in banana republics all over the world. We believe that it is unpatriotic NOT to protest what the millionaire Wall Street Congress is doing. More and more the 99% are breaking away from their previous Stockholm Syndrome illness whereby they identified with the values of their captors and are joining the Occupy Movement. Even the police showed signs of improvement today.

We are not going away. We are only growing stronger and diversifying into more spheres of influence. Many of us will be running for elected office in 2012. Unlike the Koch sponsored Tea Party, we won’t be taking handouts from corporate criminals who are hurting the 99%. We will be there to change government so that it works for the majority–not the few. We are there to change priorities that result in Dallas having enough children (192,000) living in poverty to fill the Dallas Cowboy stadium twice. That disgraceful and unnecessary condition is a testimony to the dysfunctional government leadership in place in our city, our county, and those we send to Washington. It should be an indictment for their replacement in 2012. Let’s hope for the sake of our nation that it is. [more]

Go Here to see a video of yesterday’s events in Dallas. It is an example of what fair news coverage looks like: Occupy Dallas Carries On.

Members of the Super Committee should have been at the Occupy Dallas Rally Yesterday.

Occupy Dallas carries on in spite of police and government officials
