OWS Ramps Up Today

May 1, 2012 by  

OWS Ramps Up Today
UPI
OWS is becoming more active now that it's spring.

Occupy Wall Street kicked off a planned day of global disruption this morning. In cities throughout the United States and the world, protesters are expected to be out in force.

Organizers hope the coordinated events will mark a spring resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter. OWS has called for a general strike among members of its movement. It is calling for no work, no school, no banking and no shopping on OWS websites in hundreds of cities in North America, Europe and Asia.

In New York City, Occupy Wall Street has joined scores of labor organizations observing May 1, which is traditionally recognized as International Workers’ Day. Using their websites and pamphlets, OWS organizers are encouraging people to help block traffic at bridge and tunnel ports throughout the city to slow people going to work on May Day.

According to Business Week, Banks have pooled resources and cooperated to gather intelligence after learning of protester plans to picket 99 institutions and companies, followed by what organizers have described as an 8 p.m. “radical after-party” in an undetermined Financial District location.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Occupy-related events are planned in 115 cities throughout the United States, from college towns such as Amherst, Mass., and Ann Arbor, Mich., to Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Some of the protesters have referred to the months leading up to today’s events as “spring training.”

Police throughout the country, especially the New York Police Department, are reportedly prepared to meet the protesters with force if needed.

    Will we see a huge COW stampede in NYC and other COW towns? Probably but it’s hard to say just how far they will be allowed to push. Still think it would be funny to see the cops start using cattle prods. Wouldn’t have to wrestle any of them down, just “give ‘em a nudge”. Hmmm, that sure sounds familiar. Sit back folks and watch the rodeo, no telling how it’s going to end.

    • Mirage

      And the pigs looked on, grunting with satisfaction.

    • PendragonRise

      The duplicity and nausea go hand in hand in this. The whole OWS movement is financed by the elite as a massive distraction from the real issue which is the Federal Reserve. Their agenda is to focus everyones attention on the “wrongfulness” of capitalism without defining the difference between it and crony-capitalism wherein lies the true problem.
      Bring back the original definition of the Constitution. Scrap the progressive ideology that is behind the whole OWS movement to the dunghill where it belongs.

        That’s, what people are failing to see here. How corrupted our system is…that’s why we had the financial collape of 08. And also the houseing colaspe…and to top it all off, no jobs! It’s was all done by design, we must all wake up before it’s too late.

      • Vicki

        The difference is actually very easy to see. Which group, Wall Street or government, has the legal power to force you at gunpoint to not buy (or buy) a product or service.

        Capitalism works just fine when left alone. When people who think they know better than reality try to meddle by force of government, you get crony-capitalism and that is what the OWS crowd should be upset with.

        But like a good magician the elite have distracted the ‘useful OWS idiots’ into believing that Wall Street is the problem rather than the actual problem of big government.

      • Vicki

        Speaking of OWS, some of them couldn’t wait for May 1st.

        WARNING: the video comes with an obnoxiously loud commercial so turn your volume down at the start.

        The OWS crowd should take notice that they are now actively turning off the very people they claim to support.

        (This is claimed to be raw video and not likely to be tampered with but it is NBC so who knows.)

        Well said… The left and right are trying anything they can to draw away from these true words…

      • Joe H

        Did any of you see the report today about the FBI foiling a plot to blow up a bridge outside Brecksville Ohio?? They say that all five of the suspects are OWS members. Guess that blows the idea that they are all so peaceful all to hell, huh?

    I have no problem with the OWS peacefully complaining about things as is their right protected under the 1st amendment. What I object to this their attitude that they have a right to STOP me from exercising my right to travel for any reason including work by blocking traffic.

    • revnowwhilewecan

      I agree with you again Vicki. I support the OWS movement but blocking every day Americans from making a living does NOTHING to the elitists and will serve to only hurt the movement versus widen it. Americans hurting Americans is exactly what they want. It also give them an excuse to use force which also is exactly what they want. It makes me wonder if the OWS leadership has be infiltrated by groups looking to start some sort of violent uprising or malicious intent.

      • Tom Cook

        You support the OWS movement? Isn’t that precious. You support all of the losers in this country who want something free taken from those of us who go to work every day. You suck.

      • Karolyn

        Tom – Do you not support our right to protest? Would you rather communism? I think not.

      • eddie47d

        Since the ELITES control every aspect of our lives Tom from what we eat to who gets elected I think we need strong voices out there with a different perspective. Whether Alex Jones or OWS and I don’t agree fully with either of them. Unless you like being steamrolled and a puppet of those in power.

      • revnowwhilewecan

        Tom Cook,
        Yes, I support their right to assemble and protest. I also support your right to be a communist.

      • demsagainst obama

        As per usual Karolyn and eddie have put words in Tom’s mouth that he did not say. Tom said NOTHING about their right to protest he said he opposed the OWS movement itself.

      • eddie47d

        ….or their right to protest. Don’t be so naive. Semantics again?

      I don’t see what the problem is Vicki, just exercise your right to travel and run them down,
      then we can have a trial based on these ‘rights in conflict’………..you may have a good chance of winning…….after all, jay walkers have become pretty much fair game, so as an obedient tax paying wage slave, clearly you are worth more than these traffic blocking people exercising their right to attempt to redress grievances?

      • Karolyn

        Donald – HE is the problem? I beg to differ. WE (mankind) are the problem. The problem is not just one man but what has happened over many years, and we all are part of the making of things the way they are.

      • GALT

        That’s been covered Vicki, you gave up your rights…..only you can get them back, and you have been shown how………of course, I can understand your grievance here, those pesky little protesters want to be wage slaves, just like you…….very strange.

        I doubt I can provoke anything….after all, you and the “writer’s” here share so much in common ( the feature writers that suck you in every day and with whom you have NOTHING in common ) that both the irony and humor escape you……

        You take care now.

      • Joe H

        GALT,
        how peaceful is trying to blow up a high-level bridge outside Brecksville??? Especially during high traffic times?? how many of their intended victims would be just stiffs trying to get by just like them?? they said they are members of OWS (or occupy cleveland) and ows admitted they were but did not reflect their aims. YEAH RIGHT!

        I can’t give up my rights. They are inalienable. Others may
        try and force me to not exercise those rights. For protection
        from that, governments are instituted amongst us.

        When such government becomes destructive of that purpose it is our right
        and DUTY to ALTER it. Our forefathers gave us 4 boxes to use for this
        purpose. They gave us instruction as to what order to open the boxes as well.

        1-Soap Box (what we are doing here. What the peaceful part of OWS is doing there)
        2-Ballot Box (what we will do in November)
        3-Jury Box (www.fija.org for details)
        4-Ammo Box. ( will only be needed when they come to take it. Just as Jefferson
        says about the Amendment that protects our RIGHT to own and carry that box.
        “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it. ”

        True. We are a sane and peaceful people. Much happier letting others get on with their lives and we with ours. Alas some of those others (Not OWS but TLA’s like DHS and TSA and …. seem determined to mess with ours.

      • Vicki

        Btw the astute reader will have noticed the strategy GALT tried to use. First he said I can use my right to travel, then in response to my comment he inverted his logic and claimed I had given up my rights. Note the attempt to confuse by both combining 1 right with all and then claiming I had given up all without bothering to explain when or how I had given up and of that which is inalienable.

        Then he tried a group ad hominem attack. Which failed. And a parting shot of “you take care now” as if he actually cared.

        The OWS representative probably misspoke. What they should have said is that the bombers had the same aims but differed wildly in their methods. OWS – peaceful protest. Bombers-blow things up.

        Keep in mind that agents provocateur get involved with a group to either cause trouble for the group by direct action and claiming to be with the group OR by goading the fringe members of a group into un-peaceful actions. The bombers could be in either category.

      • GALT

        Vicki…that’s the problem….you don’t have unalienable rights,,,, you have ONE unalienable right, but then so does your dog and the small pox virus. Start thinking for yourself……

    • Sirian

      Vicki,
      Just remember who the supporters of the COWS are. When you have a mix of unions, communists, socialists, fascists, racists and anarchists you end up with quite a batch of very unruly COWS. Now an unruly herd COWS that is notoriously well known for it’s tendency of stampeding on a whim should raise quite a question of concern within you, should it not? A huge herd of COWS can do a great amount of damage to property and people on a whole. That is very well documented as their nature. A couple of the main herders are Ayers and Soros, you know, they ride the perimeter of the herd but keep it well stocked with either ideological or financial initiatives plus help from various side-kicks such as Van Jones, Trumka, Sterns and plenty of university professors no doubt. 1st Amendment rights are vitally important to us all but there are certain limitations surrounding that too. Peaceful demonstrations are welcome – absolutely! But the tendency of this herd of COWS, with a history of the exact opposite, leaves one with an overview that isn’t what you could call peaceful.

      • eddie47d

        You’ve brought up racists before Sirian and OWS does not welcome racists. If they show up their free speech rights might be tolerated but for the most part ignored. Remember the Fascists who showed up at Tea Party rallies and embarrassed them. They didn’t kick them out but most Tea Party members didn’t want them around. Open rallies bring out undesirables on both sides and hurt the main message. Damage control is almost impossible once pictures are taken or words exchanged with instant media reporting.

      • demsagainst obama

        I seem to remember Jessie and Al, two of the biggest racist there are, being welcomed by the OWS movement.

        As with all good profiling we must pay attention to history. BUT we must not use the excuse that they might do bad as a reason to violate their rights by prior restraint. Let them march. Ignore some little slowdowns such as a sidewalk so crowded you can’t walk briskly forward. Come down hard on actions such as the OWS claims to advocate on their websites.

        As to who they are or who is funding them, they still have their individual rights and as I have said here before, the problem with rights is that you have to give them to people you don’t like. But if you take theirs away why are you surprised when they take YOURS away when they have the power.

      • Opal the Gem

        You are correct demsagainst obama. Both Al and Jesse have been welcomed at numerous occupy events. Therefore eddie’s claim that the occupy movement is opposed to racist is bogus.

      • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

        Sirian, it could not have been said any better. Talk about “useful idiots” and that is exactly what this herd called the 99%/OWS is. I have no doubt that this May Day trouble is just the beginning. This is, no doubt, a carefully constructed and concerted effort to create chaos and mayhem…”riots in the streets” by this Administrations power brokers…Soros, Ayers, SEIU, Trumpka, Code Pink, ACORN, Van Jones. The bottom line, it’s the “community organizers”, Obama was a community organizer, that are using these morons as pawns. A core of protesters from anarchist groups, labor unions, and communist organizations, often obscuring their affiliation, mixed in with a mishmash of confused students, concerned citizen activists, children that have become nothing more than disposable useful idiots.

        Bill Ayers said he would join up with the COWS in Chicago. The SEIU is pumping up these idiots to do their bidding all around the country.

        The vast majority of protesters at LAX(Los Angeles)were not the grassroots employees protesting working conditions but were, in fact, bused in by union organizers.

        The union thugs were behind the SF/Larkspur Ferry terminal ferry workers’ strike that shut down the Golden Gate Ferry Service and encouraged the reign of terror on the Mission District small businesses.

        If they are successful in the long run, to create mass riots in US cities, then be assured there will be Martial Law and the elections will be suspended. Don’t think for one minute that the corrupt Obama Administration does not have a role in these protests.

        Marxist 101: “The organizer knows that the real action is in the reaction of the opposition. The end is what you want, the means is how you get it.”

      The OWS doesn’t need to worry. obama promised not to use section 1021-1022 of the NDAA 2012. Of course the moment the protesters become expended useful idiots THEN the administration (obama’s or the next or after or…) will wisk them away without needing to bother with messy things like due process.

      • Vicki

        Yep. Many of us have said that from the beginning of OWS :)

  • Mirage

    Lets see if we can connect the dots on all the irony and illogic stinking up this site.
    The OWS movement is largely made up of pro-active Americans who are tired of pervasive governmental corruption via big business dollars. They’re out there in all kind of weather taking on BIG BROTHER, and the sheeple here throw rocks, while simultaneously screaming bloody murder about the excesses of BIG BROTHER?
    OWS should get some credit here because they’re putting their time and money into taking to the streets … they’re in the face of the same corrupt entities EVERYONE HERE SEEMS TO IDENTIFY AS PART OF THE EVIL EMPIRE/GOVERNMENT!
    And yet, many here (people that can’t think for themselvs) have gotten their marching orders from the talking head Elites on the Right; that OWS is essentially just a bunch of unemployed hippies. WTH? Study the photographs of OWS …. you’ll see Americans of all ages/types.
    OWS wants a level playing field for ALL; regardless of wether you’re CEO of one of the big too-big-to-fail banks, or a grocery clerk, you should play by the same rules.
    Instead, despite taking horrible gambles with other people’s money and loosing big, Wall St./Too Big to Fail Banks got bailed out, while the economic tidal wave resulting from their de-regulated behavior wiped out much of Main Street!
    By comparison, every day Americans burn for bad financial decisions, or life’s bad luck created by Wall Street fall-out etc.
    Recognize the disconnect in castigating OWS?
    If not, you can’t be helped, you’re too “ultra” something, which is just a euphamism for “Radical”.
    99%>1% … its not a social class war … just simple MATH.

      http://www.infowars.com/fully-armed-u-s-troops-patrol-minnesota-neighborhood

      “A photo showing fully armed U.S. National Guard troops patrolling a quiet residential street in Crookston, Minnesota has gone viral, once again underscoring concerns that Americans are being conditioned to accept the gradual imposition of martial law”

      OWS is just another soros funded game.

        “…underscoring concerns that Americans are being conditioned to accept the gradual imposition of martial law” OR illustrating that our National Guard troops, as they have done for decades, continue to get training they need to serve and protect our citizens.

        We need to BE the military. Such is the point of the 2nd Amendment. With ALL of us armed with heavy weapons we have no reason to fear tyranny by anyone.

      Mirage connects the wrong dots thus falling for the mirage by writing:
      —————————————————————————–
      Mirage says:
      Lets see if we can connect the dots on all the irony and illogic stinking up this site.
      The OWS movement is largely made up of pro-active Americans who are tired of pervasive governmental corruption via big business dollars.
      —————————————————————————

      What the OWS and you do not see (willful ignorance?) is that pervasive governmental corruption is via BIG TAX DOLLARS taken at gunpoint from business big and small AND from individuals big and small.

      The corruption is further spread by BIG Government SPENDING via BIG Government BORROWING for their pet causes.

      The CENTRAL theme is BIG Government but mirage fails to see the cause because he has fallen for the mirage cast over the cause by the same people who distract the OWS.

      Now one element of the onion not covered here might be the central bank in the form of the Fed Reserve. BUT the power to force still lies in BIG Government (Legal Tender). Take away that power and no central bank anywhere can force you to do anything.

      If you are really worried then get your representative to pass the “Free Competition in Currency Act”

        No Shight Sherloc Vicki … dah, tell me what I don’t know about Big Government corruption and the need to scale it down? Government being TOO BIG is a different subject altogether from my post, which were essentially my opinions regarding OWS, and the rancor from the right wing extremist peanut gallery (this is your cue to look in the mirror:)

      • Vicki

        I looked. I just found myself looking back. No right wing extremest mask. No right wing devil on the shoulder. Sorry. Your ad homenim attack fails.

        ” Sorry. Your ad homenim attack fails.”

        Sad isn’t Vicki that that is all Mirage has to offer in rebutal.

    It’s World Wide Commie day folks and some of our “public”servants will join with the unions to make this a real festival of whinning and sniviling….believe me this new breed of government union public servant has no shame, they seem to think their entitlement is a life time of tax free rides, that the tax payers work for them and not one of them mentions a word of thanks or realizes where their comfy paychecks come from.

    To those PS that work in a honorable capacity and don’t take the taxpayer for granted, refuse to participate in this bachanal, my best…the rest of you parasites are disgusting for helping communism.

    • Karolyn

      Public servants pay taxes too.

      • Vicki

        And are paid by taxes. Tight loop.

    “Either they are part of the problem or part of the solution.” I see them as part of the problem. They are contributing nothing to the economy and just causing trouble and some will probably die then someone will get sued because the wrong color killed the wrong color. What a rediculous mess. GET A JOB!

    ‘WOW I watched the new tonight and saw that Seattle was getting really rough. Riots, breaking windows, people running around dressed in black pounding baseball bats on windows and stores. Sad…. sometimes I wonder if I still live in America?

    The really sad part is that they were all dressed the same and had the same aims so who is organizing them? During the WTO protest it was learned they were bussed in from Eugene, Oregon. The hotbed of liberal professors, at the local university, who are partially tax payer funded, have been giving great lessons in how to disrupt people making honest livings and businesses trying to make a buck. Plus, they cost the taxpayers of that city a lot of money to clean up the mess after they head back to school to learn more destructive behavior.
