Been away from forum for awhile.  Busy with family obligations and OCCUPY movement.  My town (Pensacola, FL) is one of many across the world that have begun anti-capitalist/cronyism movements.  Inv ...

Hikinmike thank you for sharing with us insider knowledge regarding OWS.
Would it be fair to say that One of the major grievances uniting protesters across the US is anger at the government for putting corporate welfare above that of citizens?

And if you could tell us in your own wording why does MSM repeating mantra that protestors demand are not clear aka they don't know what they want?

It is obvious to me and most of the world what they want yet mainstream media tryig hard to present OWS as noncoherent and no goal movamant.

Go figure.

Why US ignore "Revolution in its own backyard"?

well thats why they make up stories about Iran and assassination plots and we all know who are the assassins, and the useless U.N sits back and lets them carry on. Hymie Weinstein can assassinate whoever he wants without any come back, does the U.S really think that anyone will believe their filthy lies about non events? maybe they dont know what happened to the boy who called wolf?
in the meantime just remove any cash you have from U.S banks as they will use it to fund more wars.

Anglo-Americans controlled US ignore its rightful Native People in its own backyard for centuries




                   Anglos always enjoy helping theirself on what is Not theirs!
                                                
   

           It is about time that every household in America should start paying rent to Native people who had given up way too much

and receive too little in return for their land   and resources on it , for the past 500 years or so.




The following ABC News was reported on YAHOO on Oct 13, 2011;


        Little Tashina Iron Horse, is 6 years old, a chatty and vivacious first grader, and she tells us she wants Justin Bieber to be her boyfriend. If she could, she’d ask President Obama for “Fresh water…and bubble gum…and a backpack.” She wants to grow up to be a police officer, a career choice inspired by her mother Bobbie, who works long hours as a security guard.

Tashina lives on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where most of the 30,000 to 40,000 residents identify as Oglala Lakota Sioux and boast of a rich cultural history and deep-seated spirituality. Located in the southwest corner of South Dakota, Pine Ridge is one of the 565 federally recognized Indian Nations in the United States. It is also one of the poorest.

Pine Ridge residents live amid poverty that rivals that of the third world. Forty-seven percent of the Pine Ridge population lives below the federal poverty level, 65 percent to 80 percent of the adults are unemployed, and rampant alcoholism and an obesity epidemic combine with underfunded schools to make it a rough place to grow up. Tashina lives in government housing in Manderson, 30 minutes north of downtown Pine Ridge. She lives with her grandmother, parents, siblings and uncles – sometimes up to 19 people live in the three-bedroom house, which has seen better days.

In the decades following President John F. Kennedy’s pledge to fund public housing projects on American Indian reservations, a construction boom began in Pine Ridge. Today, most of these units built in the 1970s and 1980s are in varying degrees of disrepair – a result, critics say, of steep cuts to the Housing and Urban Development budget made by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. Public housing dollars today are largely spent battling black mold in reservation housing rather than constructing new homes.

Amid the despair, there are youth across the reservation — like Tashina — who are breaking through the hopelessness with huge dreams and powerful stories. So that she can be a competitive dancer at the pow wows, Tashina sports beautifully hand-crafted outfits made by her Uncle Matthew. Matthew is a senior in high school who lovingly hand-sews and beads Tashina’s pow wow regalia: shawls, moccasins, hair pieces, and dresses. At the pow wows, Matthew is constantly at Tashina’s side: practicing with her and helping her get into costume.

Unlike America, shareholders paid for the crooks...
not bailed out by tax payers money like inthe US...
