Since the Occupy Wall Street protestors squatted (in more ways than one) in Zuccotti Park on September 17th, similar protests have begun in about 70 major cities in the USA, and around 900 cities worldwide. The tactics used to organize these protests reminds me of the tactics used on 9-11, in a way. Here we have a group of protestors upset with corporations and big business, using their corporate gadgets to communicate and coordinate their protests. Isn't this similar to the Islamic terrorists, who hate the ways of the West, using our jet planes as weapons of death against us?
But now the OWS movement (again, the word 'movement' can be taken in more than one way) has become a tax-exempt entity. These demonstrators have received over $500 thousand in donations, which are now being sponsored by Alliance for Global Justice, a far left organization. If you hurry, you can get a discount on their courses that boasts it will change "beginners into activists, activists into organizers, and to help seasoned organizers develop new skills and areas of expertise . . . " I figure these areas include bombmaking and becoming President of the United States of America, but I could be slightly wrong.

Chuck-I'd-French-kiss-Hugo-Chavez-Kaufman is the AFGJ's National Co-Coordinator wrote on the website: "The Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) and its predecessor and founder, the Nicaragua Network, have been well-known grassroots organizations withinthe Central and Latin America solidarity movement and the anti-corporate globalization movement for over three decades. For probably 25 years we've used our 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status to fiscally sponsor projects that do not have their own tax-exempt status . . . " and the garbage gets deeper.
|Chavez says Obama "smells like hope." He's half right|
What concerns me is that OWS is likely to be less peaceful than the leaders of the left seem to believe. I tend to lean toward Glenn Beck's thinking that this is anarchistic and will get worse--we are simply seeing the first step in the movement. If Obama is re-elected next year, I believe we will see changes that will have our founding fathers doing the macarina in their graves.
