I have been watching the coverage of "Occupy Wall Street" in fact the Occupy anything movement is all over facebook. Here is a link to "Occupy Canada". To each their own, but Occupy Canada, talk about jumping the great white land shark. What exactly would the argument be to want to Occupy Canada again?
I was reading this post on Hot Air by Allahpundit, Van Jones: It's time for an "American Autumn? in the spirit of the Arab Spring. My first thought was, bless Allah's heart, he's trying to squeeze some more juice from the Van Jones media turnip. Glenn Beck milked that green jobs huckster for everything he was worth. For some reason Van Jones decided to surface, to add his two cents, to the evils of capitalism narrative. Why now? I thought about it, the Obama administration, has had it's problems, with what his ex press secretary, Robert Gibbs, dubbed "The Professional Left" and recently the hard left has received the new moniker "Firebaggers" for the ultra liberal firedoglake. Occupying is the new trend, surely this is a sign, we are well into the 2012 campaign season. What purpose could it serve for Van Jones, to resurface now? I suspect a diversion, media manipulation really isn't that difficult, especially with a cooperative corporate media. While the public is focusing on Van Jones, they are not focusing on the green energy initiative fiasco. It's an old illusionist trick, sleight of hand, focusing attention on one hand ,while using the other hand to pull off the trick. It's really not that difficult to figure out what's behind the media manipulation, always follow the
money Green Backs.
With the presidential election coming up, and the Obama administration unpopular with the professional left, it sure would be helpful to construct some kind of movement, to show the hard left aka Barack Obama's base, that they are all pursuing the same agenda. But as the old saying goes, Rome wasn't built in a day. I have been watching footage from "Occupy Wall Street" it appears that generation unwashed, showed up. They may be confused, they may be deluded, but when you're running for reelection, and trying to put up a false front for your base, you make due with what shows up. No I am not worried about Van Jones, and Oktober, although I can see how that would help the Republicans herd the paranoid into their pens (Fear mongering making a comeback). I am amused, that the progressive left keeps ripping off Mel Brooks. This is the best they can come up with? Herding the vocationally unoccupied, out in front of the New York Stock Exchange? Meanwhile unbeknownst to firedoglake, Jamie Dimon head of JP Morgan Chase, adviser to President Barack Obama, and limousine liberal, is meeting with so called conservative businessman Mitt Romney, Republican presidential hopeful. I think the far left, and right in this country are letting the space between their ears be occupied by a false front-artificial narrative, that doesn't stand up to close scrutiny. They could try looking past the superficial media explanations, and think for themselves, but the odds of that happening are slim to none . I've seen that movie too. Apparently Sean Hannity & Bill O'Reilly, have figured out, this isn't the Bolshevik revolution. It does however keep the proles occupied ;)
Bart is given twenty-four hours to come up with a "brilliant plan to save our town." He gathers the town, along with the railroad workers, three miles east of Rock Ridge to build a fake town as a diversion. The workers labor all night to complete their task. After the sun rises, the fake town is a perfect replica, right down to the orange roof on Howard Johnson's outhouse. Bart realizes the town has no people in it, so it won't fool Lamarr's villains. Bart orders the townspeople to make "exact replicas of themselves," and leaves with Jim and Mongo to execute a plan that will slow the villains "to a crawl." The three construct a tollbooth labeled "Le Petomane Thruway"; upon seeing it, Taggart asks, "now what will that asshole think of next?" Since no one in the raiding party is carrying any change, Taggart sends someone back to town to "get a shitload of dimes."
