Occupy Wall Street Is A Menace, Prepare For Violence

Prepare for violence. We remember this crowd.

The year was 1999 and the anarchists descended on Seattle to stop a meeting of the World Trade Organization (WTO). We lived there at the time.

Floyd was working as a host at Hot Talk 570 KVI, located in downtown near the “peaceful protests” of the meeting of WTO ministers. Seattle was excited because it was an opportunity to show the new high tech Seattle of the 1990’s that replaced the industrial Seattle of the 1970’s. The City was on the world’s stage.

Early pictures of the protests reminded us of what you see currently camped in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park. And as in the fall of 1999, the media is there to catalogue the strange beliefs of those involved.

The Seattle protests were called a peaceful group of human rights leaders, students, environmental groups, religious leaders, labor rights activists’ etc., wanting fairer trade with less exploitation. Sounds like the group down on Wall Street.

Liberal political leaders of the late 90’s were giving encouragement to the protesters in a fashion similar to the current leaders Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and Barack Obama are carrying water for the current park based protesters.

But there is a darker side to these crowds as there was to the Seattle crowds in 1999, and that is why we are predicting violence to break out soon if it hasn’t when you read this.

The Seattle protests started peacefully, but they ended in a hail of tear gas and rubber bullets. The KVI office windows were smashed in, and the steel and glass structures that defined the high tech city were laying shattered for blocks.

The protesters laid waste to blocks of glass windows, and some looted stores for extra “capitalist goods.”

Over 600 protesters were arrested and the battle in the court rooms lasted for years as protesters made allegations of police brutality against the thin blue line that was attempting to protect the property of the “capitalist pigs,” as the protesters called them.

Norm Stamper, the police chief of Seattle during the 1999 WTO protests, resigned soon afterward. He was singled out and scapegoated for the police response. But what are police to do when a peaceful protest morphs into a riot?

Zuccotti Park is privately owned. The owners have leafleted the squatters and asked them to remove the illegal tarps and other structures that have been erected as part of the protests. Urine, feces and other bodily fluids are now making the park an unsanitary mess. These owners have a right to ask police to clear their private land of illegal squatters.

We believe in peaceful protests, and Floyd was arrested in 1983 protesting communism in front of the Soviet Embassy in Washington DC. But squatting on private land is not speech and protesting. It is an illegal act and if it is ignored it will embolden the protesters to break more serious laws.

It is time to send these young socialists home to mom and dad before they start smashing windows and starting fires as they did in Seattle in 1999.

    These poor, misguided souls are protesting against the very people whose tax money funds their welfare. They are railing against corporations. They should be protesting against the largest, most abusive and corrupt corporation in the world….the U.S. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

    • Byron

      Yhet are not poor misguided fools, they are just plain STOOOOPID.

    • leslie85223

      This is the mentality pool that the Obama administration targets. It’s why Obama and Pelosi were so quick to jump in support of their “demands of the day”. Same with ethnic and class groups . . .

    • http://AOL Ellen

      Obama brought this on — and he knew exactly what he was doing. In his speech he told people to take off their slippers and put on their marching shoes — exactly what these mobs are doing. The violence and property destruction will soon happen — and it will be Obama’s fault. I really believe he wants to declare marshall law. He wants to stop the 2012 elections and remain in power. God Help Our Country

    • EdinNola

      Ellen, don’t dispair. If Obama’s dupes don’t know when to stop, I can guarantee you that there are a whole lot more of us than there are of them. Might get messy, but as they used to say when I was in school, “Better dead than Red”.

    • Jim A

      These people are the perfect useful idiots, (emphasis on idiots that the left has been looking for.

    • Don39

      Actually a goodly percentage are on welfare. And they are on your union dues And they are on the ill gotten gains of SOSOS INC, also your money and that of other benefactors. IT IS YOUR MONEY IF YOU ARE A PRODUCTIVE TAX PAYING CITIZEN,. and do not let anyone tell you otherwise. ALL MONEY IS THE PRODUCT OF PRODUCTIOVE CITIZENS. IT IS NOT MAMA FROM HEAVEN, these people do not even believe in heaven. IT IS YOUR MONEY!

    • LesPaul

      You’re right. So lets get all the productive citizens taxpayers to have our own protest. How about we protest against paying taxes in the form of a TAX STRIKE! Lets say starting in the month of November we stop paying taxes for the rest of the year. Lets see how they would like it. This government put 14 Million citizens out of work. IT’S THEIR TURN.

    • Glo

      How can one refuse to pay income tax when it is deducted, by law, from the paycheck?

    • Jana

      They are. Don’t listen to the media or reports from journalists. Go to their website and READ! You aren’t getting it and you’re making a false judgment. They aren’t on welfare!

    • Colleen

      They are just plain ignorant. There is no reason why these yoyos can’t go to work, earn, save and quite possibly have what they covet. They have NO right to other people’s property at any time.
      Get a job, get a life, and leave ours alone!

    • Lorraine

      They aren’t on Welfare? Oh yeah, well who is feeding them down there on Wall Street? They are taking whatever any one is willing to give them. Many who have been interviewed, have stated that they are there for the free food. If someone else is supplying it, and your not working for it to buy it, then it is a form of welfare. Even the toilet paper they are using up in the public restrooms of businesses (those horrible capitalists can afford to supply the toilet paper to wipe their a$$e$.)

    • Allan

      Yeah, they’re on drugs, especially the one called “society owes me”.

    • Sam

      SOS, folks .. we will fight these fools today, tomorrow and yesterday. Each generation breeds more ignorance, hench, more numbers in these stale whimpering protests and more on ‘entitlement’ programs. They will fight us to the end of time and eventually, when we are so greatly outnumbered by their ignorance, they WILL win. But, we keep fighting ……

    • Thomas Beckett

      They won’t win, because the barbarians are reshaped throughout time by responsible people who have faith in God. God is always with us, and he helps us when we are faithful.

    • http://comcast.net Thinking gal

      To Enemy…..While I don’t think a lot of these demonstrators are poor in $$’s (but, yes, in a right spirit they are), they have been fed so much trash by their liberal schooling (from grade school on up) the liberal media (for oh so long) and now by the unions and own so-called president who is a student of socialism, they don’t have the open minds to see that they are being used by all their ‘benefactors’.

      I will admit I don’t have the answer to this problem though, in my case and perhaps in others’, all I can do that IS within my power is to pray — seriously and without rest — that the Lord take this problem we offer to Him with tear-drenched hands and correct it because, people, no matter how many of us there are who want to be rid of this abomination present in the White House on down, we aren’t fighting on a level playing field. We have too many evil workings going against us.

      Our only hope is the assistance of God Who, with a snap of a finger (metaphorically, of course) can grind them to dust. WE have the real leader…..if only we all would call on Him. Not to do so it like wanting the house on fire be put out without calling the fire department.

      Well, I’m calling on the Chief of the real fire department here and now. Come, Lord; we need you!

    • Jim A

      And everytime that Israel needed saving from invaders, Yahweh may have guaranteed the victory, but the Israelites had to go out and fight the battle. It’s no good going as far as talking about trusting in God and stopping there. Trusting means doing for ourselves while confident that He will secure the favorable outcome. Just praying and then sitting back isn’t going to get it done this time.

    • JOHN F. THOMAS

      How can we call on GOD to help us, when we did nothing to keep HIM in our schools, and other places of importance, not to mention allowing our so called representatives keep his name from Military worshiping…Yes,HE can do what ever HE wants and you can rest assured it wont be pretty….The only way we can help ourselves is kill every snake we find, and one cannot kill a snske with words or letters…and certainly not by lobbing off its tail….you strike for the head. WE can start by getting rid of people like our extremely efficent Attorney General, and then watch the rotten bastard scatter back into the woodworkk wherethey belong

      They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them.
      They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
      They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.
      They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
      They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

      This is correct the federal gov started all of this under clinton with the passing of the urban redevelopement act that & the dems (barney fag, um er,ah frank comes to mind)with his mind set of every body deserves to own a house then the democratic house started assing regulations & pushing for the banks to loan more & more to people that could not afford to make the mortgage payments so they got even more inventive & started passing liar loans where you didn’t even have to show income with interesrt only loans for the 1st couple of years & money was so easy to get every welfare recieptient started to feel that they could buy a house with the every housing getting in even shorter demand & people taking out “equity” loans to make improvements & buy more & more toys for their selves to go & play with (the me generation) until it finally started to unravel so really go & protest where it all started specially now with money being tight it is hard to get a loan even with stellar credit unless you have a big big down payment, & you guessed it the gov is putting more & MORE RESTRICTIONS on the money supply just what we don’t need is more regulations

    • Carrie

      I am so very confused. I know that there are protest groups that are gaining ground and popping up in all places in the U.S. and even in other parts of the world. My understanding is that they are protesting the way that our government is running things. I don’t just see young college kids in these groups but there are people of all ages. They are upset that there aren’t jobs and that that the economy is so bad. They are upset that they have lost jobs and their houses and they say that this is not about any party but rather it is about government and wanting things to go back to the U.S. Constitution. Am I talking about a different group than the one that all of you are talking about. When I first read all of the negative posts about the protests I started watching to see if you are talking about something different but I am still not clear on this. The protest groups I am referring to are groups of people of all ages, races, genders, etc. that are upset with the way our government is operating and feel that they are allowing themselves too much power and control. They are upset that Wall Street got bail outs but that us normal people are still having hard times and it isn’t getting better. I was thinking that someone had the courage to get out there and stand up for all the things that everyone writes about in here. I am not a spoiled brat on welfare and I consider myself an intellegent human being but I am really confused about what you are saying. I don’t see Pelosi or Reid or Obama or any politicians involved in the protest groups I am talking about. I really would like to understand what all of you are talking about so I am clear on what is really going on. Are we talking about the same protests?

    An old pastor lay dying. He sent a message for an Internal Revenue Service agent and his lawyer to come To the hospital.

    When they arrived, they were ushered up to his room. As they entered the room, the pastor held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The pastor grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything.

    Both the IRS agent and lawyer were touched and flattered that the old man would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled because the pastor had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them.

    Finally, the Lawyer asked, Pastor, why did you ask the two of us to come here? The old pastor mustered all his strength, and then said weakly, Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s how I’d like to go.

      You’re so right Mary. We the people are the people who have been paying those kids ways for their whole lives. They are so spoiled and have everything they need and want more and more. I saw a lot of them on iphone and ipads – I don’t have either one because I can’t afford the cost of the plan or the device. And here they are using them and drinking bottled water and most likely tossing it when they are done.

      An old Stones song says, You Can’t Always Get What You Want

Be prepared America. You and I know this is Obama’s and the unions , and the socialist/communist handy work. Will it lead to martial law and cancellation of elections? It will if not curbed. Then comes the real patriot revolution. Be prepared.

    It would seem to me that there is a ‘Yin & Yang’ in politics, a pendulum if you like, that over time balances itself out. As the USSR seemed to reject failed Communism in 1991, the pendulum swung the other way in the USA and the young under-educated ignorant
    allegedly ‘College’ educated youth (in reality redmedial High School !)- sought to create the USSA ! The same thing happened in 1789 with the “Sans Culottes” of Paris and then Eva Peron’s “Descamisado’s” of the 1950’s in Argentina.

    In such climates ignorance and violence reign supreme, unfortunatelky this ‘Occupy Wall Street” Mob are the product of, and encouraged by a false illicit President, who should undoubtedly be ‘impeached and imprisoned’ for criminal political misrepresentation if nothing else.

    No one can yet see the irony of a U.S. President inciting and leading a rebellion against the country that he purports to govern !

    EVERYONE….AND I MEAN EVERYONE, needs to think for themselves and be lead around by the few “useful idiots”….(useful, because they are doing the dirty work of politicians, that want to stir things up). These politicians then use these “useful idiots” to “prove” that we need to bring down the rich a notch or two….ie…..have class warfare. If everyone would do their own independent research and see ALL SIDES OF AN ISSUE…they could make more intelligent decisions, and find the REAL SOURCE OF THE PROBLEMS…..and in most cases they will find that it is our own government….especially THIS ADMINISTRATION. Look on the internet and google…”Barney Frank and Fannie Mae”….Also do your home work on what the EPA is doing to this country in the name of “saving the planet.” Check out “UN Agenda 21″, “350.org”, “The Green Agenda”, these sites, inturn will lead you to a host of other information …..all in the name of saving the planet. The environmentalists want to return the “planet” to “pre-human” days….(I’m not exaggerating….check it out before it’s too late. Do your homework….tell your friends (at the risk of sounding like a “kook”, racist, blah, blah, blah.

    “…squatting on private land is not speech and protesting. It is an illegal act and if it is ignored it will embolden the protesters to break more serious laws.”

    The scofflaw Chicago gang running Washington won’t prosecute political allies; these squatters don’t require any emboldening. The New Black Panthers carrying billy clubs to intimidate voters was but a foreshadowing of what we will see all too soon: the complete breakdown of civil society, encouraged by the provocateur-in-chief.

    F&F did not work to institute martial law and attempt to collect all privately owned guns, so this is being set up to replace it. We are being set up to be a communist dictator country.One of Obummer loons said “as many as 25 million may need to be killed to insure this is converted to a socialist country”. Folks WE are on the top of the list of 25 million.

    • KM

      @ Graywolf,
      That figure of 25 Million was in about the 1980s, when the population of the USA was about 250 Million (=10%), so now it would be about 30 to 35 Million people. Yes, I agree that any conservative, especially an activist, would be a target of this acministration and those who think like that.
      I also agree with others who have ‘speculated’ that this is Act One toward fomenting a crisis the admin can use to institute martial law.
      Has anyone here ever lived under martial law and curfew? I have, in the late 60’s after MLK’s murder, DC was an armed camp with curfew. It happened once, so it could happen again.

    While living in Seattle during the Viet Nam War era I heard a local news report of an interesting occurrence:

    It seems there was an anti-war protest in the area of the University of Washington, both on and off campus. Streets were clogged and the usual chaos and mayhem were pretty much the rule of the day.

    Some enterprising people, apparently not sympathetic to the mob’s views or perhaps incensed by the obstruction of traffic, put a few hives of bees on a pick-up truck, drove it into the melee and tumbled the hives of angry bees onto the street. It was reported that the crowd dispersed on its own — hurriedly.

    I’m told that bees are among nature’s most intelligent life forms: Perhaps they could clarify the thinking of some of those picketing Wall Street. — just a thought.

    Obama can’t declare martial law. To do that, he needs a national emergency. For a national emergency to exist, he actually needs the consent of Congress. Even Abe Lincoln could not act independently, and his own vice-president was a Democrat.

    We saw he same thing under LBJ with student riots and radical activism, and no national emergency.

    Now, for the reality check .. when the Rodney King riots broke out in LA, the local Korean American business owners defended their stores with AK-47s, among other weapons. The Korean American business community wasn’t about to put up with this mentality of looting. No one ever dared to prosecute those Korean American businessmen, although the attempt was made by the DNC lefties. The Korean American community retaliated against the DNC during the following elections, and still retaliate.

    I love immigration. The immigrants who came here legally to embrace the American Dream are the first ones to defend that dream. If they think it’s worth fighting for, then why shouldn’t we natural born Americans feel the same way?

    This isn’t about race or class .. it’s about the freedom to make your own way without Big Brother government killing your dream.

    • Don39

      I believe he juist needs the consent of the Senate and he has the Senate. Also I believe that Obama has no respect for what he needs by law or the Constitution and will not let such formality stand in his way of maintaining/gaining power!

      OBAMA WILL DO AS HE PLEASES.. HE DOES NOT RESPECT THE SENATE OR CONGRESS.. HE WENT INTO LIBYA WITHOUT CONSENT, AND HE IS OFF INTO AFRICA NOW .. WITHOUT CONSENT.. HE IS RUNNING THE COUNTRY LIKE HE IS KING.. AND OUR STUPID POLITICIANS ARE LETTING HIM. THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A WAR BY THE PEOPLE TO GET RID OF THIS FOOL. AND IT HAD BETTER BE SOON OR WE WILL BE TOO LATE. YOU THINK GHADAFFI WAS BAD.. JUST WAIT UNTIL BARRY GETS GOING.. THAT NICE SMILE.. ALL AN ACT.. EVEN HITLER SMILED NOW AND THEN!!!!

      My sentiments precisely Idylewylde. I know many LEGAL immigrants, who show more fire in their guts, about defending the Constitution than most 5th , 6th generation Americans. Shame on us , really. These people know how difficult it was to come into our country legally, and want to protect that effort. WE do need more legal immigration and NONE OF THE 90 MILLION ILLEGALS.

    For many of the proresters they are looking at this as a big Woodstock. Most have no clue why they are there, it’s just something to do. The crime is the idiots that are pushing them on, democrats, union leaders, and the communist. A movement should start where they all put on their marching shoes and march to washington.

    Violence begets violence, it will happen and when it does, it’ll be bloody, hopefully the protesters are the ones bloody in the streets. People like you and me will not allow these parasites access to our houses, or land, I for one will shoot to kill any or all that try to invade my home or harrass my children.

    The mayors who are allowing these crowd to grow, and spread to other cities, with no ‘rules’ or ‘limits’ will soon wish that somebody else had their jobs.

    When the crowds have increased to the point where control is impossible, the options will be few … and harsh.

  • TXPatroit

    Leave it to the LAZY ASSES, LIBERAL, AND UNION to demand more rights than anyone else. Unions in schools made America dumb. Unions have lowered the quality of America’s goods. Liberals tell everyone how to live, lie, and it’s cruel to put criminals to death for killing, rape, and molesting our kids. Well, I’ve had it with all you LOSERS! I’ve had it with Washington. Time for TRUE AMERICANS to stand-up and say, WE WILL PROTECT OURSELVES AND DEFEND OUR COUNTRY, CONSTITUTION WITH FULL FORCE. WE PUT YOU IN, WE WILL TAKE YOU OUT! Lock & Load, OBAMA IS FIRST TO GO!

    • Don39

      I disagree, OBAMA will be the last to go!

  • Nuzzybuzz

    Supposedly, politicians were in contact with the owners and asked that they stop last Friday’s “mandatory” evacuation of the park. It will be interesting if these same politicians (we all know the answer already) will step up when this demonstration does turn violent and businesses begin getting looted. There will be violence soon because the unions have already ackowledged that they intend to promote it. Nothing good for the country is going to come out of this.

  • Miroco

    Many of us are making a grave error, we are responding as if the vermin actually possess reason. They, like liberals in general, firmly adhere to the dictum, “the end justifies the means”. They try to present an argument when confronted with cameras but the anarchist majority just want to bust things up and tear down MY country. Screw them and the horse they rode in on, if Bloomberg had cajones it would be time for water cannon– down to me, I would, well I guess start with rubber bullets.

    I’ll say this, they are all idiots and fools. Without a job?, sure a bunch of us are, and just struggling trying to keep a roof over our head is tough enough without worrying about and iphone bill when you don’t have a job or work. I made too much money to qualify for State and Federal assistance, so i have to deal with this alone. I even was willing to take a job at McDonalds, but they just aren’t hiring, at least not old guys. I have kept tabs, and in 4 1/2 months i filled out 789 job Applications, i have received one call and one interview in which i was told that a younger person who was better qualified received the job. Mad? yes!, Mad enough to camp out in feces and urine in New York? Not a Chance. I’ll keep looking, trying, and eventually i will find a new job, or at least enough work in odd jobs to keep a roof over my head. These kids pay for nothing, do nothing but play games and text, are worth nothing in the “it’s mine and i want it” state of mind, What they need is a dose of good ole reality from our National Men and Women of Protection; That’s right!, i am saying send the National Guard into that park and let them “clean it up”. Despite my problems, i guarantee i will VOTE CONSERVATIVE in 2012, just like i have always done. God Bless America, the dream is out of reach for now, but it’s still on the end of the rope.

  • Don39

    Look folks, stop quivelling about who is paying the bill for these demonstrations and soon to be riots. There is only one source of money in this cpountry. Contrary to popular opinion, the government and Obama have no real money. The only source of momey is the PRODUCTIVE tax payer the exception being futuere productoive tax payers . It is they who will pay most of it considering that we have allowed the current Obamination to put us into a $14 trillion record debt.They will pay that part that we current slaves to big government do not live to pay.The possible except is tat of outside, foreign, money paying the way of part of this fiasco. Chances are we have or will pay that to.

    So sit back and marvel at the waste opf YOUR money. Ooh and aw at the waste and hope someonetakes care of it. Do not even think of getting involved and doing something about it. Marvel at the poor misguided children ( as some above do) WAKE UP ANERICA get off your duffs and prepare for the future that is here or perhaps never. The powers behind these actions is intent on one thing, using your m,oney to gain a strangle hold on this nation and force you under a tyrantical socialist regime before their current leader is ligitimately thrown out of office and they lose the momentum! The longer we wait the messier it is going to get. WAKE UP AMERICA, PREPARE for the woprst yet, it is right around the corner.

    If the protesters had been properly schooled in history, they would realize that the new order will exterminate them first, along with the unions and leftist intellectuals. But first the elections have to be suspended and the patriots disarmed. Soros will have Obama declare martial law by executive order. General Gage, you have a call from the White House.

  • dj

    Since no one knows for sure just who is marching out there why don’t people just calm down and let the police handle it? That is what the taxpayers pay them for, isn’t it?

    If the average joe citizen starts getting involoved in this mess we just all might get caught up in another civil war right here in our streets and homes. Just who will know who is who? One just might wake up to find that they had shot their own loved one or ones.

    All of those out there are someone’s family members. A lot are wanting to be given something for nothing but I bet there are some honest hard working people out there that think they are doing something that is against the current situation. Anger and fear only begets more anger and fear and fear then eats on that anger and fear and then it gets out of control. Then it becomes mob rule.

    It is that kind of anger that put to death Jesus and has destroyed many countries as well.

    Just my thoughts on this. I believe the police can handle what is going on as long as others steer clear of it. Shortly, I hope these people will get tired and go back home or we will have a long year ahead of us until we get to vote. Don’t give the present administration any chance to involk his kind of law on us. I would hate to see people like the black pathers and such marching into neighborhoods myself.

Thats all he has left to try to keep in power… Remember Obama is a Corrupt Law Breaker..

    It might help to focus the protesters a little if the following were implemented:
    Some of the Occupy ~blank~ are promoting a “green agenda”.
    In the spirit of co-operation and to further that end please advise the authorities who have supervisory/law enforcement responsibilities for your local protester group to immediately adopt the following policies:
    1. Immediately require that all petroleum powered cooking and heating devices be removed from the area. You should be able to get along fine with your solar powered ovens.
    2. Allow the protesters all the water they need, as long as they pump it themselves.
    3. Provide them with all the garbage and human waste containers they need as long as they take their own trash/waste to the designated collection points located outside the protest area so that the people responsible for transporting the collected materials will neither interfere with the protest or be delayed in their transportation duties. Anyone not complying with the above is to be promptly detained and cited for littering and violation of the pertinent sections of the health and safety code. They are welcome to return to the protest as soon as they make bail and clean up their mess.
    4. Restrict cell phone tower/wifi access to those facilities that are powered by approved green energy sources. All other non-green access points within communicating distance of the protest are to be powered down for the duration of the demonstration.
    These policies should help foster a greater awareness and understanding of the green agenda and let us all come closer together in understanding.

    Time to make those people “protesting” clean up the mess, and let no one leave area, unless they pay also in cash $100.00 , credit card , or give up their IPHONE. Also get photos of each, and where they live, for future reference. We then can send them a bill if they do not have cash on hand.

    These sadly misguided mentally corrupt cretins are nothing more than the result of excessive drug use by their parents and grandparents. In just a matter of time they, who claim to fight against greed, will exercise their greed through arson, pillaging, and plundering the shops and stores of innocent business owners; all in the name of freeing themselves from the greed of Wall Street. I recall the same bloviated comments from spaced out hippies in Haight Ashbury, 50 years ago.

  • Johnnygard

    New York may not have enough guns, but the solution to keep your business from being looted was demonstrated during the Watts riots. A friend of mine and many others (I think it was mainly Korean businessment)protected their property with guns. Armed family members on the roofs and in the stores. In most places, you can shoot if you are in fear for your life or the life of another innocent. If I was sleeping in my store and rioters started to break my windows, I’d be in mortal fear, and the bullets would be flying!

    The Occupy movement, what a wonderful idea, it really should turn violent and spread acrossed the country to every major city.
