“They told me I’m not allowed to go into your studio in the stock exchange. That’s been the rule for the last four years … We’ve done this twice before on the street in front of the stock exchange. Now we can’t even do it there. At some point CNBC has to just stand up to the stock exchange and say, we’re the media, we’re the press.” — Michael Moore to CNBC producer on being forbidden from doing a CNBC interview inside the NYSE or even on the sidewalk outside, Monday, October 24th, 2011
Michael thank you for continuing the good fight. You are not alone!

In this article I am misquoted by one word. The only reason i point it out is that the thought makes far more sense. In any case please post links to more spiritual occupying so i can re-post and share with the OccupyUniverse.
At Pershing Square where the protesters first rallied, Arthur Klein, a yoga teacher by profession who appeared to be one of the Occupy LA organizers, invoked Gandhi and Martin Luther King and called on the marchers to exercise restraint and remain peaceful. He urged them to ‘smile at the police,’ saying the LAPD was supportive of the movement, was part of the 99% and that ‘they want this change too.’ As the crowd cheered, he added:
“We’re growing like the oceans filled with waves. We are powerful not because we are one wave but because we are waves together, and like the colors CURRENTS of the great oceans. We are going to change it all.”
After the brief meeting at Pershing Square, the crowd slowly wound its way to Los Angeles City Hall where occupiers have been camping in tents on the lawns since October 1. Along the way, they chanted ‘Banks got bailed out, we got sold out,’ and ‘From New York to LA, Occupy the USA’ and stopped from time to time to listen to brief speeches by the organizers or anyone stepping forward to relate personal stories of how bank rip-offs and corporate greed had impacted their lives.
The Spirit of the Very First Peaceful (r)Evolution is taking hold and rooting the spirit of our souls deep into the heart of mother earth… Thank you all out there for reflecting to me I am not crazy and I am not alone. Jai we will be victorious you can already feel it in the air. Please participate in this conversation with comments and posts of more of this great stuff.
October 15th, 2011, members of 99% arrested at Citibank, NYC while trying to close their accounts
**Message from Hartford to Wall Street:
This is unbelievable. Citibank now beats up their customers and then arrests them. Now that’s customer service & consumer rights in a nutshell!
Shame on you NYC Police, Mayor Bloomberg, Police Chief Kelly. You are crazy and all of you should go to jail for your crimes against the 99%. You will see your day come if you don’t see the light. Karma has the bite of a tiger and the memory of an elephant.
You need to stand down immediately and let this movement be free to assemble and develop taking its course; unless you are not about Democracy or about our Republic of, by and for WE THE PEOPLE. What could you all possibly be thinking?
Since Citibank now beats up their customers and then arrests them. Now that’s customer service! Please consider TAKING YOUR MONEY OUT NOW!
SEE THE POWER YOU HAVE FROM WITHIN YOUR POCKETBOOK AND ACTIVATE AND ENGAGE YOUR ABILITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! IT FEELS SO GOOD
“With democracy in crisis, a true grassroots movement pointing out the flaws in our system is the first step in the right direction. Count me among those supporting and cheering on the OccupyWall Street movement.”
Thank you Al for doing the right thing and saying what needs to be said!
If you haven’t figured out how this scam against the American middle class is being perpetrated, watch this Dylan Ratigan clip. This the real deal of how it is working (or not)… Now what can we do to make it right and get back to the American Dream and wake up from this American Nightmare… Please share your comments, suggestions and stories of how we can change the direction of the river. The aristocracy of Multi-Millionaires and Billionaires controlling our formally free country has got to end. America used to be a country where you could start at the bottom and end up on the top based on hard work, ethical values & moral behavior. This was all based on a level playing field…
With all the corruption and greed at the top; trying to gut our social programs, buy our politicians and do everything but the RIGHT THING this Winston Churchill thought gives me the enthusiasm and strength to fight on… How dare the Congress and elected officials continue to receive paychecks when soldiers and many more hard working people are left hungry, homeless and without hope. My first thought is if the leadership who are owned by the rich shut down OUR government maybe we as a country of hardworking middle class Americans, should SHUT OUR COUNTRY DOWN… Having money means nothing if there is nowhere to spend it…. WE THE PEOPLE could in a Gandhi inspired way bring it all to a peaceful unprofitable halt until sanity returns to OUR government.
“During the Second World War, Winston Churchill’s finance minister said Britain should cut arts funding to support the war effort.
Churchill’s response: ‘Then what are we fighting for?’ “
Please add your personal thoughts and comments on how WE the PEOPLE can squeeze the top until they understand what BEING A HUMAN-BEING & an AMERICAN really means! Time is fleeting and we as a tribe, culture and community need to have THE CONVERSATION with our leadership so they understand the power of 300,000,000 free loving and awesome American. This is a fight we can have and is worth fighting!
Goodnight and Good Luck my fellow Americans,
