the 53% vs the 99% vs the 1%?

-by Nerdface-

Today I am a bit depressed.  First, Oakland raided its “Occupy” tent city, resulting in (among other things) critical injury to a two-time Iraq veteran.  Then, I started reading more about the  so-called 53% movement.  (Note: it is not a coincidence that the Occupy protests took weeks to get some real attention from major news networks, but the 53% thing is already getting press.  Anything to divide and distract.)

Those identifying as the 53%, which is the supposed number of Americans who pay income tax, are putting the dialogue in terms of Them (hippie freeloaders wanting my money) vs Me/Us (we who work hard and don’t complain and don’t expect special breaks).

It is, in my opinion, a damaging and false divide.  It makes me feel physically sick to contemplate it, because it is so, so unnecessary.  I truly believe that if we all sat down and talked reasonably, we (the 53% people and the 99% people) would realize that we can be, should be, and must be on the same side.

Occupy LA

-by Nerdface-

I support the Occupy movement.

Sure, it’s messy; sure, some of the people involved are loopy and/or misguided and/or Choose-Your-Favorite-Conspiracy-Theorists and/or fill in the blank with someone you don’t 100% agree with. That’s the thing about it. 99% is a big tent.

We (people directly involved, people indirectly involved, and people who support the movement or support some aspect of the movement or aren’t sure what we support although we agree something is wrong with our country) CANNOT allow ourselves to be divided any longer. Right, left, center, and everything or nothing at once: we are all the losers when corporate money can buy policy and perpetuate war, when risk is foisted upon the general public while profit (gained fraudulently and illegally, no less) is kept by the few.

Below are photos I took of Occupy LA today. Occupy LA is located at Temple and Spring in Downtown LA, in front of and around City Hall.

For more information on the Occupy LA movement click here; for more information on Occupy Wall Street, click here. One photo below shows a list of items that the Occupy LA movement very much needs—tents and bottled water are most critical. If you can’t be at the protests, consider donating, spreading the word, or helping in another way that works for you.
