Atlanta pic: WTF? Are you serious? That's a picture of the Ronald Reagan statue in friggin` Newport Beach, CA! It was nearly pulled down by vandals, NO MENTION OF OCCUPY. Atlanta? Are you bald-faced lying or just plain stupid? Reagan statue
Fort Collins: Yes, arson is a horrible crime. Yes, the accused was a supporter of Occupy and spent time with them. Does that connect this act with Occupy? No. Was it discussed or planned or even known of by Occupy? No. It was a lone act with no connection, yet to the Rightys it`s a textbook example of "Occupy violence!"
Bottom line: the police state and Right-wing media were tools used to seek out (and often create) violence with which to demonize a peaceful movement that was, frankly, starting to scare the hell out of our oligarch

CJ: Do you really believe everything Fox tells you to? I know this will mean nothing to you but I have to rebut your blatant propaganda.
Oakland pic: That was the Occupy Oakland General Strike on Nov 2nd, around 3,000 protesters PEACEFULLY shut down the Port of Oakland with no damage or arrests. That night, a group of Black bloc anarchists with no ties to Occupy started breaking windows and setting fires half a block away from the park. They were not part of Occupy. When the police came in like stormtroopers, some regrettable violence ensued but the fires and damage were away from the park and were not in any way a part of Occupy. Inconveniently, the crime rate actually dropped when the mayor was claiming Occupy was causing crime! Oakland memo

If there ever was a member of the 99% his name is CrakrJak. There's a world of people out there that due to politics are unable to see the good in anything unless their leaders champion it. CrakrJak refuses to believe that banks ripped off the world. He`ll make 100 excuses and blame the whole thing on Freddie Mac. So he`ll go on about his life, angry at anyone supporting this, all the while accepting the government handouts he`d surely lose if he had it his way. The one percent want people like him to pay more in taxes, succumb to corporate overlords and die penniless.
