Normally I am rather verbose; not as a means of displaying superiority as some have concluded, but as a constant masturbation of my adopted tongue. I love the English language and every time I learn a word that can beautifully depict an image, I will use it and it'll turn me on. But that's just me.
I found out through a friend about some arrests up in Oakland I wasn't very familiar with. So tonight I looked up the charges and the case and was disgusted. Three of Occupy Oaklands occupiers were accused of theft, and jailed on $100,000 bond. One is still in and could not be bailed out. Oakland has started a letter wiring campaign to him to keep his spirits up, and I think it would be nice if we joined in.
On almost a daily basis I hear the same thing again and again; “Isn't Occupy over?” The answer is pretty clear: NO!
All across the nation Occupy is still rolling along. In some places it is completely hidden away due to climate, or even due to unpopularity with local governments, and having to move meetings indoors. As spring begins we will see a re-awakening of the movement, and I believe the momentum will only build from there.
