Arab Spring meets North American Summer

We are the 99% have taken the world by storm and it is expected to grow bigger and bigger spreading across the world like a worm and it is all good. Life has woken up to itself. People are awake and they are not going to take it anymore. Greed has gone beyond our imagination. It is like a virus with one exception, it does not spread the virus around. It duplicates and infiltrates and circulates among the rich whose bodies become overwrought with the virus but yet it is contained. We need to spread the wealth of the world around. It is outrageous that 10 percent of the world’s population should be snapping up 90 percent of the world’s resources. It is outrageous for taxpayers to be bailing out big companies only to give themselves more bonuses and raises while the common folks are left without homes and  in dire straits.

It is time that big businesses who want more than their share of the pie know that the common folks have finally got it and are on to them. They now understand that there is power in numbers and they have power in their hands.

And to think that this impetus started in the  Middle east.

It’s time for change, real change.

As most people know by now, something big is happening on the streets of New York City. It began on September 17, where a growing number of protestors began occupying Wall Street, many of them camping out in Liberty Plaza. Though first largely ignored by the media, Occupy Wall Street has gained steadily increasing attention—especially following the mass arrest of more than 700 protestors on the Brooklyn Bridge October 1—and has inspired similar protests and occupations in hundreds of cities around the world. Critics of the movement have complained about the occupiers’ lack of clear demands.
