I have tried to control my growing need to expose my sarcasm but a man can only take, or read so much.
In Los Angeles, we seem to all be afflicted to one extent or the other with ADD. No matter how simple the message or direction, we feel a need to add to it, subtract from it, change it, ignore it or just do something weird with it. Anything but focusing on it & paying attention to it.
If you ask the average Angelian to sit @ a intersection & just count the white cars passing through it, God only knows what kind of report you will end up with @ the end of the day. We are not all like this, my wife isn't, my kids aren't, most Black's, Hispanics & Asian's who are my relatives & who I hang with aren't, several of the poor & unemployed whites who I am a part of aren't, so why is it so hard for the rest of us to stay focused & REAL.
We are all here for what I would hope to be the same reason, "The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%." This is the original message from our founding group in New York, Occupy Wall Street. If your unable to or incapable of understanding this simple statement, maybe you could take a few minutes to ask for help. If you don't want to follow this message you are in the wrong revolution, you need to start your own, otherwise your disrupting ours & trying to splinter it, why would you want to do that?
We have all been held down by the corrupt action's passed into law by our Weak & Greedy, Disgusting Politician's, we fondly refer to as our elected official's, and the Greedonimc's & Greed Monger's they so sneakily & slyly work for. We all personally feel the sharp pangs of pain that these worms have injected into our lives, yet we FEEL A NEED TO INVITE & EMPLOYEE people who have a name brand to put into words that which they are not personally experiencing. such as. Long Term Unemployment, Wages cut in half or more, Foreclosure, Rental Eviction, auto repossession, adequate & convenient Health Care, the shame of Welfare, the lack of public transportation & a way to get to a job interview or you cant AFFORD THE $3.90 a GALLON GAS for your about to break down car, or the insurance & license fees for it, your sucked up 401k, sleeping outdoors or in your car or in the bushes. You want a speaker, get one who is a member of the 99 Club, Google it if you don't know what it is, & shame on you! Hint, it has something to do with unemployment. Not meditation ...MY GOD GIVE ME A FUC*ING BREAK, is it just me, or does anybody else hear the Twilite Zone intro getting louder?
Maybe it's something in the water, but why can't we in Los Angeles stay away from the people or issues that do not have anything to do with our movement? A lot of us seem so fake or so far out in the Cosmos that being called "Spaced Out" would actually be a compliment.
"Long Live Occupy, Long Live The 99%"
