Occupy With a Vengeance! Change is Messy, But Must be Done

Occupy With a Vengeance! Change is a Messy Affair, But it Has to be Done

By Vincent L. Guarisco
November 20, 2011


"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies."
~~Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Is it just me?...Or is it getting crazy out there? I guess if you want honest press, you have to own one? If it weren't so painful to see our nation gutted in all sectors, it would almost be laughable to hear our lap-dog media say the Occupy movement has not made any clear demands. Or how disorganized we are. But this is how today's media gas-bags operate. Pure and simple, they blatantly twist, distort and outright lie. It's the same old propaganda tactic used time and again by corporate media that, woefully, is owned and operated by the same financial gluttons we are fighting.

Yes indeed, the international banking cartel, the Wall Street pharaohs and the FED (foriegn investwhores) truly is a filthy unholy orgy. Folks, It's not rocket science: These rogues of power must be rounded-up, arrested, extradited and prosecuted in a court of law. And after the gavel falls, "imprisoned." When you look at all the wealth that has been stolen, lives destroyed, the killings -- it staggers the imagination that we have allowed this arrogant mafia to continue doing business for so long. Get real, this ridiculous three-card monte can make even the most pathetic used car salesman blush.

And nothing drives the nail deeper into freedom's proverbial coffin than watching the police pepper spray peaceful UC Davis students. I have a fuzzy feeling; if this continues, it's going to get real ugly soon for cops with swelled heads.

Plus, the latest fiasco is the heist at MF Global, a company that deals in "futures." Check out this riveting video featuring "Gearld Celente." Sadly, He became one of the latest financial casualties to lose a bundle as a result of those he calls, the white shoe boys!

God knows we need it, so here's a bit of good news: Cheers to us! November 17th marked the two-month anniversary of the Occupy movement. The importance of our involvement has never been more relevant than now. We are legion! As our nation continues to recoil in anger and disbelief, we know there are no bailouts or golden parachutes for us. We are on our own. In fact, just the opposite -- we get to feel the burden of skyrocketing food prices, on-demand inflation, record breaking home foreclosures and homelessness ... during these cold winter months.

But regardless, the resistence is strong and spreading its wings in the face of adversity. From New York City to Oakland, California and all points in-between, our numbers are growing. The jackboots may have thrown away our tarps, tents and sleeping bags, but we will not falter. They may continue to pepper spray, beat and arrest peaceful protesters; try to shut us down, but we will not stop. We will not leave. Our time has come! They can't stop the 99% movement. We are the dreamers who dare to believe better days will come and... "Ideas are bullet proof!" Indeed, our thirst for peace, truth and justice shall be quenched.

Even with all the hardship at hand, these are exciting times. It's refreshing to witness my fellow patrons from all walks of life going after the gluttons of greed. It's exhilarating to see we still have some grit left in us! For several decades, I watched my sleepy nation blame everyone else (except themselves) for their mass sensory deprivation. And although many of us have fought the good battle for what seems like an eternity, we gladly now join hands in solidarity to create the change we so desperately desire. And if our numbers continue to grow, I'm confident we can create positive solutions for the many challenges we face.

During this great awakening, I suspect many of you are feeling a bit like Alice going down the 21st Century rabbit hole? Well, while doing so, don't forget to revisit the protest arc of the 60's. I hate to say I told you so, but the dirty f---ing hippies, we're right. Excellent video!

Spread the word, our numbers are our strength. Tell others to join us! Stand proud. Have no fear. Stay the course. Because if we keep pounding them hard like we did at Oakland's port, and if we keep dissolving our bank accounts -- we can level the playing field for our salvation. Failure is not an option for those who cherish freedom. The billionaire fat-cats will not skip a beat at stealing everything from everybody, everywhere. In fact, the stakes couldn't be higher. Our survival literally hangs in the balance.

Sadly, this has gotten so out of hand that other nations now consider America one of the biggest global threats the world has ever seen. This is serious. It's now openly discussed that our country either needs to be stopped or destroyed. Nothing good will come of this if we fail to act. This is our final wake-up-call. A most dishonorable label could be bestowed upon us that no other nation has seen since the days of Adolf Hitler. Just as Germany's Nazi flag was rightfully thrown in the dirt, the same thing can happen to us. Indeed, the rest of the free world will not give a second thought to spit, urinate and defecate on our American cloth. Why? It's simple -- we will be condemned because we did not stop our own pathological war-mongers who shrewdly dance on the blood of innocents for profit. Thus, if other nations have to clean-up our mess for us, it won't be subtle, nor kind. After more than five decades of handing our leaders a blank check to rob, kill and pillage with impunity -- can you blame them? Enough is enough.

If you need more incentive to march in the streets, check this out. I pulled-up this bailout timeline (2008 to 2011) from Pro Publica. The numbers are staggering! When you see this massive government welfare giveaway all laid out in chronological order, it takes your breath away. I guess we little peons now know for sure -- the socialism is for them, and the capitalism is for us. Take note, these figures are only the ones we know about. We strongly suspect that much more was secretly given. Ironically, I'm sure we'll all rest a little easier knowing that the privileged ones (at our expense) will be able to hire those hot little escorts, jump on their yachts, and speed-off to Cancun for that spectacular well-deserved vacation.

A world revolution is currently underway. And as powerful as they may think they are, the masters of the universe cannot escape a repetitious pattern that always seems to make full circle -- all empires eventually crumble into the dustbin of history. The crafty devils thought they would forever keep us constrained in a hapless trance of languishing servitude, but they were sadly mistaken. They underestimated our strength, our resiliency for breaking the chains of bondage. Thus, we have united in solidarity to take back the sanctity of life, freedom and honor.

Cheers to us! The days of blindly believing gas-bag monologues for the continuance of war is over. The spell is broken. Their deceiving platitudes of false patriotism no longer has the desired effect. We will not let our sons and daughters enlist in the military to die in their killing fields for American "interests" in distant lands. Even in this fast moving technological era filled with never-ending calamity, we will not give our oppressors their third war -- Iran.

Change is a messy affair, but it has be done regardless of the opposition we face. Amen. Take pride in knowing the silver-spoon devils will soon reap the full effect of our public discourse. The great American Occupation has only started and Revolution is now eminent.

I'm wishing for a miracle, before it is too late, the masses will figure it out and will stand as one and roar. So, pass the word -- it's past time to take back what is ours -- the American Dream where the pursuit of happiness, the ability to live in a free and peaceful nation is a reality. We bought it, and we paid for it. It's time to take it back.
