Facebook is where I wind up posting everything, so to get my larger audience of about 3 people in on the rest, I like to repost as a blog what I’ve put up on facebook every so often. Thanks for reading –

VIDEO – Indie rock band Outernational drops in on Occupy Fresno! This is a very good recording of their performance. http://youtu.be/yaXIbeKC9R8
This is a few weeks old, in that the national shutdowns of Occupy encampments hadn’t begun yet and Fresno’s was still in existence. The 18 “concerned” mayors were still having conference calls conducted with Homeland Security about how to get rid of Occupy “infestations” in their cities at this time.

Have you seen the new “negative narratives” about The Occupy Movement in the MSM? They are just getting started with them. The purpose of “negative narratives” is to convince would-be supporters that maybe they should distance themselves from the movement rather than join it.

Examples: a) FOX News coverage of the “Occupy Assassin” story, which is their term for the “protestor” that shot at the White House! b) undermining the act of protesting by reporting on the presence of people with negative images.

A policy declaration made known to all who join the occupiers in Fresno. It’s unfortunately not legally binding, and can only be given value if it is respected by all who attend, and even if they just simply call themselves supporters but don’t attend, it should be read. Basically it’s similar to any bar’s “86” policy. http://occupyfresnoca.com/2011/11/12/revised-occupy-fresnos-anti-oppression-policy/

Very, very sad. I hope there is no reluctance at mourning this tragedy that happened at Occupy Burlington Vermont. And another that happened in Salt Lake. This story is absolutely heartbreaking. Scary that someone brought a gun to the demo, by the way. http://gawker.com/5858561/war-vet-shoots-himself-at-occupy-burlington

THERE HAVE BEEN NO DEATHS AT OCCUPY CAMPS. I REPEAT. NO DEATHS. There was ROUTINE OAKLAND GUN VIOLENCE near the encampment of Occupiers in Oakland, some distance away, but it had NOTHING TO DO WITH Occupy Oakland. Shame on you Huff Post!
I stand corrected – Carbon monoxide in Salt Lake, possibly suicide, suicide in Burlington, Vermont.

The movement is not about joblessness, although joblessness in part motivated their fomentation. In reality, the demos will die down at some point where placation meets exhaustion, but the actual reason for OWS is to demand 100% restoration of power to the people, with no compromises. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/11/11/colin-powell-occupy-movement-is-as-american-as-apple-pie/

I just had a spittake when the deputy exalted over the megaphone that they take action “… in the name of the people of Central California…” It’s Tea Party talk — you know, anti-big gov’t, pro-local, anti-liberal, pro-conservative. The cop is using his car mic to give a Tea Party speech while the arrests are being made. I wouldn’t get too about the term “pro-local.” It is loosely based on the positive narrative used by the slavery expansion movement that started the Civil War. http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=WU0Rg1gVQ1I

The laws being enforced in Courthouse Park are for loners, vagrants, and random black men. The “community standards” of Fresno, which have never been challenged, support also applying the law to Occupy Fresno. What is Fresno? The Fresno Ca facebook page is organizing an “I think Occupy is a stupid waste of time” party this weekend – let’s define. http://abclocal.go.com/kfsn/video?id=8422708

Inspiring – unfortunately, somebody somewhere is figuring out who these people speaking are and they will get defamed probably. Before that happens, let them fill you with hope! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re4CWYuxlc0

Crowd-funded Occupy Wall Street ad, “Occupy Together,” airs on Bloomberg. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1AzMtNnJ_c&feature=share

Did you see this commercial over the weekend? It was made to improve the image of the Occupy movement. Mostly with ourselves. We needed to see this ad. The psy-ops style reaction to the ad was to use it as evidence OWS is not grass roots, since now it has an ad. Good old psy-ops. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O_Ao9w1u7c&feature=share
