Occupy Unmasked

Transcript? I can't get the video to play.

I note that this is from Citizens United, which certainly isn't an unbiased source. I've heard some of the radio pundits accuse the Occupiers of being Socialists/Communists/Anarchists, and interviewing some who do fit that description. But remember that there have also been Ron Paul supporters who have showed up at Occupy rallies, and anarchism can be found on the right as well as the left. I don't think it's fair to concentrate on those claiming left-wing affiliations, as there are a lot of upset and angry people out there with no label pasted on their forehead who just want to be treated fairly by both corporations and government; is that too much to ask?

Listening to "Get Together" by the Youngbloods while I'm writing this...maybe everyone on the right and left, Wall Street and the Occupy Movement, corporate board of directors and government officials should all listen to this tune awhile.

Try now JMP. No,it's hardly unbiased! It shows you though what we've associated ourselves with though with #occupy. I have family at #occupy events. Basically it's a mess and getting ready to make a big mess here in Chicago for the NATO summit.
