If you don't agree, speak up, I love a good debate.

What if Soviet Russia and the other second world countries (communists) didn’t lose, what if it was a tactical retreat?
Bare with me for a minute because I know how this sounds. Whenever someone talks about communism, what do they say? They say it looks good on paper but cannot work in real life, correct? They cite that we’ve only ever had manipulated forms of communism and never a real communist society, right? What if the communist leaders knew this? What if they tried to make things work but couldn’t so they manipulated the structure (to make it one of the altered forms of communism) and waited for their own downfall?
Here’s where it gets good. What if they knew that capitalism could not sustain itself and that on day far in the future people would revolt against it and yearn for a world where everyone was equal (I thought about this while thinking about the state of the occupy movement).
What if these leaders (Stalin, Zedong, etc.) knew that people would not truly be ready to live in a pure communistic society until they tried and failed at indulging in greed and felt its effects.
Protesters being dragged away by the police for excising their 1st amendment rights in Grand Central Station.
Note: The video doesn’t capture what the police say so Im not 100% sure if the first girl had a warrant or something, that’s perfectly possible. But there’s no way both of them were dragged away for good reason. This is a police state in its clearest form
who is this guy? this guy is Tim Sommers and he is America’s first political prisoner from the occupy movement.. today, after showing up to his court date, he will be held until MARCH 13TH for his next court date.. we don’t have the NLG here in tampa and are suffering for it… the pic will take you to an article.. and after you learn more, feel free to contact the following people to let them know this is WRONG!
Reblogging again to spread awareness. He is being denied his right to a fair and speedy trail. Call the Mayor and State Attorney and demand an earlier court date.

Things I don’t like about the occupy movement
1. provoking the police. The whole damn time. If they think they are in danger they are allowed to beat you senseless and while I’m assuming this came after a raid and those are YOUR things, you can’t think they were gunna like you hoping on the truck and stealing it back.
2. Not understanding when they actually are breaking the law. They were in the middle of the street half the time, and even though there weren’t any cars around it’s their jobs to clear it.
3. Shitty fucking camera men, I mean really were you even looking through the lens? I was looking at the night sky half of the video. We need to see things like who hit who first not the line of cops where there are no protesters (on the other side of the street).
I think we’ve strayed a bit from fighting for economic and democratic equality to hippies wanting to agitate the police and ‘occupy’ places without purpose. Granted, I’m not an active occupier so my say is not the most valid, but there’s a reason people think we’re a bunch of idiots. my 2 cents.
OWS Invests In Unmanned Surveillance Drone Dubbed The ‘Occucopter’
For years we’ve seen images of the military’s unmanned aerial vehicles aiding soldiers in combat zones, and their evolution from surveillance tools to the heavily weaponized Predator drones. Now, the Guardian reports, Occupy Wall Street livestreamer Tim Pool hopes to use that technology as an additional set of eyes on the police department.
Tim Pool, an Occupy Wall Street protester, has acquired a Parrot AR drone he amusingly calls the “occucopter”. It is a lightweight four-rotor helicopter that you can buy cheaply on Amazon and control with your iPhone. It has an onboard camera so that you can view everything on your phone that it points at. Pool has modified the software to stream live video to the internet so that we can watch the action as it unfolds.
The Occucopter comes in response to police departments, across the country, stepping up efforts to prevent their actions from being recorded. Some have started covering up their names and badge numbers. Others attempt to stand in the way of recording devices, or declare “frozen zones” that are off limits to even the most credentialed reporters. Tim hopes that the Occucopter will allow protesters to monitor the police, and record any cases of brutality that may have otherwise remained undocumented.
In addition to modifying the Parrot’s software for internet livestreaming, Pool is also currently working on modifying the software for multiple controllers. He even hopes to add 3G functionality, so that even protesters and supporters outside of New York could aid in the monitoring process. When asked about his plans by the Guardian, he explained:
We are trying to get a stable live feed so you can have 50 people controlling it in series. If the cops see you controlling it from a computer they can shut you down, but then control could automatically switch to someone else.
Now you, much like myself, might find yourself wondering, “Isn’t he concerned that some officer(s) will just shoot it down?”
No…They can’t just fire a weapon in the air because it could seriously hurt someone. They would have no excuse because the occucopter is strictly not illegal. Their only recourse would be to make it illegal, but it is only a toy
So it would appear that we finally have an answer to a twenty five year old question. Tim Pool is watching the watchmen.
And doing a damn good job of it.

Tim Pool for fucking president
I’m pretty sure the US ratio is actually closer to 325:1. Still obscenely high, but let’s be factually accurate here.
This is the point (one of the points) of the occupy movement. We’re not saying that ceo’s should make the same amount of money as doormen but 325x more than that of the average worker? That’s a perfect example of out of control.
I was thinking about the 99% movement with all its triumpts and citicisms and for some reason my mind started focusing on the 59%ers and I came to the conclusion that they are either a front group or are being manipulated by the 1%. Here’s how, america is no longer a pure capitilistic society, the 1% have far too much power and influence. However, even with all this influence they wouldn’t last a second if the 99%ers woke up and realized the bullshit. I often like to reverse engineer problems to see them more clearly so let’s look at this from the eyes of the 1%. If I wanted to divide and conquer minorities what would I do? Create things like the hispanic/latino conflict or manipulate their cultres to hate eachother. So what would I do if the 99%ers began to wake up? Create the 59, 69, and 79$ers to make them argue amongst themselves. People who think that since they’re makng money that everything is okay. Id tell them that putting down the 99% is in their best interest.
Side note: what the 59ers are missing is that although they are working for a high wage as an executive or entrapranuer, the 1% are making SO MUCH MORE. These people are born with money and die with money. I consider it the cheatcode of life, its like they were born with all their pokemon on level 100 and everyone else is training nonstop.
Anyway, what they don’t see is that our ecomonic structure is no longer that of a pryamid. Its more like a light pole with a fat ass generator attatched at the bottom. The generator is the lower class, the pole is the middle class, the little ball is upper class, and the tiny drop of dust or bird shit or condensation from the morning dew……that’s the 1%. And you can try to climb that pole all you want but the forces of gravity (institutionalized structures) are pulling you downwards, not upwards. Its not even speculation, america is one of the hardest places in the world to achieve upward mobility. So my main point to the 59% is this: you may be working hard and living good, but if you stopped working how long would your money last you? That is the true definition of wealth. So if you aren’t wealthy why are you siding with the wealthy? Are you sure that’s the side you belong on, or is it the side you were told to stand on?
If the sentiment of the Tea Party meets the passion of the Occupy protest, REAL CHANGE is within reach. Both movements center on the issue of Corporatism, it is time to move past the rhetoric forced upon us by the mainstream media and concentrate on the issues that unite… Read Here… Respond… & Share
Another circle please; illuminati families competing controlling corporations. Go higher up the ladder and you become an anarchist in seconds.
besides the illuminati reference this is actually pretty real. If the tea party and OWS joined forces they’d both have more pull
