We Are the 99 Percent - I CAN’T HANDWRITE THIS NOTE BECAUSE MY DOMINANT...
We need to get the #occupymn in shape. There are people HURTING and hurting badly. No statement is being made in MN - Jesse Ventura and a paid "plant" took over the media right as it all began. The poor have had few opportunities to tell their stories at the crucial time as a clique IS in control. The General Assembly needs to follow the directions from www.takethesquare.org, giving people the ...printed instructions. By going to occupy with 1000 poor people sleeping in the rough in Saint Paul, the poor will be allies and speaking. This is NOT a middle class game, a party. This is the beginning of a long, messy struggle that needs to show that this damn poverty must end. I am homeless myself through no fault of my own. My credit was wrecked by asshats. Please, consider the long term. Mpls is not going to pay the exorbitant amount of money it is costing to patrol "people's" government plaza. The current regime is not outraged; they are opportunistic and flattering people while not...


I CAN’T HANDWRITE THIS NOTE BECAUSE MY DOMINANT HAND WAS DAMAGED IN THE MILITARY. I WAS MEDICALLY RETIRED AS A WOUNDED WARRIOR.  AFTER ONLY 4 YEARS IN THIS ONLY PROVIDES A SMALL INCOME THAT IS BARELY ENOUGH TO COVER MY MORTGAGE AND EAT CHEAP PACKAGES OF NOODLES.  MY MORTGAGE HAS NEVER BEEN PAID LATE BECAUSE I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. EVEN THOUGH THE VALUE IS UNDERWATER DUE TO ALL THE OTHER FORECLOSURES AROUND ME. I ALSO HAD TO USE GRANTS TO COVER MY MORTAGE A FEW TIMES WHILE I WAS WAITING A YEAR FOR MY V.A. DISABILITY RATING. I CANNOT USE THOSE GRANTS AGAIN. THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROGRAM PROMISED TO FORM POSITION FOR ME TO WORK ON NEARBY BASE BUT THAT PROGRAM FAILED TO DELIVER.  I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO BUY A CAR.  I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SAVE ANY MONEY.  I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO MOVE FROM THIS HOME. I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO TAKE A VACATION.  I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEND MY WIFE TO SCHOOL.  I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD A LOAN. (OR GET ONE SINCE MY CREDIT GOT SHOT AFTER BEING REMOVED FROM MILITARY SERVICE)  I WON’T BE ABLE TO REPLACE THE ROOF ON MY HOUSE IN 5 YEARS.  I WON’T BE ABLE TO REPLACE MY 50 YEAR OLD SEPTIC TANK SO WHEN IT CRUMBLES AND FAILS MY HOME WILL BE CONDEMNED ON ACCOUNT OF SEWAGE IN THE BACK YARD.  I WON’T BE ABLE TO AFFORD MY MEDICATIONS AS I GET OLDER.  I WON’T BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE THE AMERICAN DREAM OF PROSPERITY AND HAPPINESS.  BUT I GUESS I SHOULD LOOK AT THE POSITIVE SIDE: I WON’T BE ABLE TO TELL MY KIDS THAT THEY ARE SCREWED…. BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE ANY.  I AM THE 99 PERCENT. WELCOME TO THE CORPORATOCRACY.
