Gee- how grinch-like of me to complain over bottles, butts and piles of used bathroom tissues; i should be thankful & basking in holiday spirit that it’s not the usual pools of blood, vomit and broken glass left over from the nightly screaming riots of drunken fucked up patrons…..
We are the 99%….and truthfully- no one gives a fuck. Priceless.
*The pearl, diamond and ruby necklace, known as “La Peregrina,” purchased at auction for $37,000 in 1969 by Burton for Taylor reached the world record price of $11,842,500. It was estimated to sell for $2 million to $3 million.
Anyone who knows this blog might find this entry odd- but – if you know me, and my take on history, you’ll understand.
Boats & Boats filled with Jews fleeing Germany, Poland, Austria – Europe in general, were turned back by FDR time & time again because what was happening in Europe was ‘not our problem & none of our business’.
These boatloads of humans were sent back to sure gruesome deaths- FDR was fully aware of their destiny but hmmmm- risk involvement over Jews? Queers? Gypsy’s….
Until Pearl Harbor.
And even then it was because of Japan, who formed an alliance with Germany and Italy.
So in my weird way I look at this action of violence as the moment that enabled my relatives to survive. The very few that were left by 1941.
They say history repeats itself.
During the 80′s & early 90′s I honestly prayed for a Pearl Harbor of The AIDS War to Drop it’s Bomb.
The City Council is voting today on whether they should sue Bloomberg on this policy. Even whimpy (but I’m running for Mayor soon) Christine (but I’m against OWS) Quinn who is talkin’ smack to the press against her buddy The Mayor.
I vote they take Bloomberg’s wallet & phone away & let him live on the street for 24 hours. Lets’ hear his policy then.
* the sign should read: DOWN WITH FASCIST BLOOMBERG
these photos were taken on 11/15 2011 from Noon- 3pm
and across Liberty Street on the south side of Broadway:
This man’s sign, and his quiet dignity made me think about Tiananmen Square. I looked it up today and found this paragraph on Wikipedia:
…By the eve of Hu’s funeral, (a party official who supported political liberalization), 100,000 people gathered at Tiananmen Square. Beijing students began the demonstrations to encourage continued economic reform and liberalization,and evolved into a mass movement for political reform. From Tiananmen Square they later expanded to the surrounding streets. Non-violent protests also occurred in cities throughout China, including Shanghai and Wuhan. Looting and rioting occurred in various locations throughout China.
The movement used mainly non-violent methods and can be considered a case of civil resistance. Led mainly by students and intellectuals, the protests occurred in the year that was to see the collapse of a number of communist governments in eastern Europe.
…to see how that ended (if you don’t know) please look it up yourself…
Mr Bloomberg, how do you think your actions of the morning of Nov 15, 2011 will end?
i have a headache & people are pissing me off… I can’t even begin to talk about the GOP debates & their foreign policy & water boarding/torture subjects; so let me release with these 2 questions below.
First the update & background to my current insanity;
(copied from NY Daily News): Sunday Nov 13, 2011
Rocawear announced on Thursday that it planned to sell the T-shirts for $22, but any trace of garments has now been wiped from the brand’s site.
Backlash sparked when Jay-Z’s camp announced it had no plans to share profits.
“We have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement,” a Rockawear spokeswoman told Gawker.com.
Simmons took to Twitter to defend Jay-Z.
“No one ever said the proceeds were not going to the cause that’s media’s spin,” he posted.
Question for Russell Simmons:
1. DEAR MR SIMMONS- IF THIS IS INDEED MEDIA SPIN WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST TWEET WHERE THE FUCKIN $$ WAS GOING AND CONTINUE SELLING THE $22 MADE-IN-MEXICO TEE SHIRT?
‘Herman Cain to respond to ‘totally fabricated’ sexual assault claims’……
(we all heard him respond, take it back, respond further, and then make it an Anita Hill joke…so,)
Question for Herman Cain:
2. DEAR MR CAIN- I THINK WE ALL, BY NOW, KNOW YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT MONEY. SO, WHY DON’T YOU EXPLAIN WHY THESE WOMEN WERE ACTUALLY PAID A RATHER LARGE SETTLEMENT TO KEEP THEIR MOUTHS’ SHUT IF THEY WERE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT BEING SEXUALLY HARASSED BY YOU? IT’S NOT LIKE YOU WERE IN POLITICS AT THE TIME, YOU RAN A PIZZA COMPANY…..WHY WOULDN’T YOU DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST SUCH LIES?
ok thank you for listening………
