Look for the union label?
Watch the confusion livestream, at “Global Revolution” – (Language warning, these are leftists, after all.) I’ve been noticing that the screen goes black every time someone or some group gets too weird. That of course, could be a coincidence since the whole thing is pretty weird. One women stated, they are trying to “transform the culture” through the occupation…
Michelle Malkin notes, they’re not even sure what they’re there for.

Shall we demand that President Obama reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act; outlaw flash trading; impose a 1% tax on all financial transactions?
These are good ideas but not very energizing.
How about we demand the revocation of corporate personhood?
Feels a bit too abstract. Many Americans don’t fully grasp what’s at stake with this one. And besides, even if he wants to, President Obama cannot deliver this immediately. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling, a reform project like this requires a constitutional amendment that would take a few years and a whole movement to achieve.

Yeah right! Just another excuse to find drugs and maybe a hook up for tonight.
