H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
[After the commentary, a special bulletin about plans by YOUR local police department that may affect you and your neighbors followed by a 'snake dance', which BTW is a GREAT mass demonstration tactic when one takes to the streets (just ask the protesters from the 60s in Japan who caused mayhem when Tokyo tried to displace masses of mostly poor people to build a new airport). Sonny Landreth... Congo Square. Courtesy of the respective artists.]
«o» President Obama is going to be in San Francisco today pitching his "We Can't Wait" job program. Every security apparat in the Bay area will be working overtime so if you were planning to go downtown... Why don't you go tomorrow instead?
«o» In Oakland California the police moved on #OccupyOakland early in the AM today and made mass arrests. Apparently it took the Oakland police, Alameda county sheriffs, San Leandro police, Berkeley police, Walnut creek, AND the California Highway Patrol to clear one city square and a couple of smaller downtown encampments. Oakland is already broke beyond all belief... Who's going to pay the overtime? Much much more in the commentary!
Oakland Police Use Rubber Bullets, Flash Grenades, And Smoke Bombs To Evict Occupy OaklandIn the meantime, in between time, It IS NOT over!
By Zaid Jilani on Oct 25, 2011
Late last night, Oakland police, under orders from the city, began surrounding the Occupy Oakland encampment in preparation to oust the protesters from Frank Ogawa Plaza.
Approximately an hour ago, hundreds of Oakland police officers raided the camp. Dressed in riot gear, the police used rubber bullets, flash grenades, and gas canisters to forcibly evict and/or arrest the demonstrators who remained in the plaza. The Occupy Oakland Twitter account live-tweeted the raid...

From #OccupyOakland's FaceBook page:
Time: Tuesday, October 25 · 4:00pm - 7:00pm«o» Muammar al-Gadaffi, his son, and the Libyan Defense Minister have allegedly been buried at a secret location in the Sahara desert by the CIA-fronted al-Qaeda affiliated 'rebels' after being on display in a meat locker for the last 3 days.
Location: Oakland Public Library (Main Branch) Steps

OCCUPY OAKLAND: URGENT CALL FOR ASSISTANCE.
WE ARE ASKING EVERYONE IN OAKLAND TO JOIN US.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS WIDELY.
Last night we faced an absolutely brutal assault by an army of the Oakland Police (with the help of cops from all over Northern California). Tear gas and flash bangs were fired into the camp where children were sleeping, people were beaten and shot with rubber bullets. The assault was also levied against our property in the camp, and the cops tried their best to completely destroy everything we had there. Almost every tent has been destroyed, many slashed with boxcutters, structures smashed, basically this was not an eviction, they came in to destroy everything we had. After they flattened our main camp, they also went to our small camp in Snow Park and repeated the process there.
Though we may be bloodied, we are even more determined to keep going. As we agreed upon in General Assembly, on the evening following any police assault on our camp, we will reconvening at the Oakland Public Library, on the steps. We will discuss our options and pick one, and then take action as a community to respond / rebuild our occupation. This is a big deal, we need everyone and their mother to come out, to help us reestablish and recommit to the occupation. They will not stop us. We will overcome this attack and emerge even stronger.
Libyan National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta reported to Reuters that the burial process for Muammar al-Qaddafi and his son, Mo'tassim, has begun. Qaddafi's personal cleric read final prayers, and two "trusted people" are taking them from Misrata, where the bodies had been on display in a freezer, to "somewhere very far away in the desert." Other NTC officials claim that Qaddafi, his son, and former Defense Minister Abu Bakr Younis had been buried at dawn. The location will not be disclosed so the site cannot be memorialized. The burial had been delayed amid speculations by international groups who called for an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Qaddafi's death. The NTC reported that Qaddafi's only remaining living son and assumed heir, Saif al-Islam, is planning to escape from the southern Libyan desert into Niger or Algeria.Now who's going to do what for whom becomes the issue as the US Secretary of Defense denies any current plans for a military relationship... Meaning military aid, training assistance, and US basing in the country. Right.

«o» A federal court has overturned a Florida law requiring drug tests for people seeking social assistance from the state. There are some seven other states with plans for similar laws. At somewhere around sixty five dollars per screening, you can bet the medical laboratory lobbies would love to ram this ruling into a higher court, or work on a rewrite that would pass federal muster.
«o» We're pulling out but leaving the 'condom' after screwing Iraq. There will be about 40,000 troops stationed in the immediate area with 20,000 troops right next door in Kuwait.
«o» You thought that since it's your money you can do as you like with it as long as it's legal? Think again. Wikileaks is under financial pressure and may stop publishing on their site due to being locked out by all major financial institutions that donators would send payments through. MasterCard, Visa, and all the major banks and financial institutions are refusing to process payment for the organization, but the leaks undoubtedly WILL continue even if their site goes dark.

Presidential contender Rick Perry tries to "Hit the 'Reset' button for his rapidly failing campaign:
Rick Perry tries to hit the ‘reset’ buttonUnfortunately for that hypocritical fundamentalist freak, THIS is the "Reset" Button, and it would put Perry, and at this juncture in history, ALL the presidential contenders in prison for TREASON:
Rick Perry’s unveiling of a flat tax plan today in South Carolina is the latest piece of evidence that the Texas governor is trying to push the “reset” button on a presidential campaign that has faltered badly after a strong start.
Perry’s economic speech comes on the same day his campaign is reportedly set to launch its first ads in Iowa and just 24 hours after news broke that he was expanding his political team to include a trio of veterans of Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) 2010 campaign, as well as George W. Bush loyalist Joe Allbaugh.
Movement doesn’t always equal progress, but Perry and his (now-expanded) political team are clearly hoping to use the next three debate-free weeks to re-write the prevailing “Perry is fading” narrative of the campaign.
That Perry has fallen from the lofty frontrunning heights of late August is indisputable...

For that busy executive on the go, and for people who simply will not read a couple of dozen pages unless they know in advance what is said, here is the condensed "Cliff's Notes" summary of The Reset Button document:
The Reset Button: Executive Summary
The Reset Button is a document, a movement, a strategic plan, and a call to immediate action to US citizens that want to control their own governance and thus their destiny. Then, The Reset Button defines more than a dozen critical areas of change that support the majority (US citizens) rather than corporations and banks.
The action (specific financial pressure on major corporations - including complete divestment and boycotts - plus simultaneous demonstrations in all 50 State capitals) has never been done before.
The goals of The Reset Button are divided into two phases: Phase I is fully articulated in the legal language and format of a single proposed US Constitutional amendment – Amendment XXVIII (Election Reform Amendment), and one law – the Election Reform Act of 2011. Success with Phase I will mean that the citizens of the US actually have control over elections, and that ordinary citizens will become elected by citizens, not selected by corporations. Phase I mandates that candidates will be required to address Phase II items in written position papers. Phase II currently outlines major areas of critical importance to US citizens, and will be drawn-up into the legal format of congressional acts and constitutional amendments in time for debate and mandated position papers by candidates, prior to the 2012 election. Phase II Acts and Amendments - written by citizens, not lobbyists or corporations - will be considered as a blueprint for change for the newly elected officials in 2012.
The Reset Button, Phase I goals are one US Constitutional amendment and one Law:
Amendment XXVIII (Election Reform Amendment) bullet points:
with the ratification of this amendment:
No incumbency and no seniority. Every elected and appointed office term is four years. Every four years, the slate is wiped clean. All previous elected and appointed officials depart; all new elected and appointed officials enter. No individual may ever serve more than four years in any office.
Judges and justices, including Supreme Court and other Federal judgeships, are retired as of the 2012 election, and future judges and justices conform to the same four year term and cycle as any other elected or appointed official.
Collusion is legally equated with treason.
Corporate personhood is formally eliminated.
The Election Reform Act of 2011 bullet points:
No citizens with dual citizenship may hold office.
Candidates for office and appointees must not be a corporate board member or stockholder in any corporation. Elected and appointed officials agree not to participate in corporate boards, banks, or stock/commodities trading firms for five years after leaving office.
Candidates must pass a new Civil Service Exam. Federal judges/justices must have passed a law bar exam.
Only public money (including the nominal filing fees from candidates) may be used for elections. No corporate or outside money - not even from candidates - may be used.
Candidates must meet all criteria and pay a nominal filing fee.
To get to a reasonable number of final candidates, the entire candidate field for each office is physically randomized in a hopper, and a specific number of names are drawn.
Final candidates are all given equal amount of public funding, must publicly account for expenditures, and are mandated to be given equal time and prominence in all media. Mandated debates and mandated position papers present individual candidate views.
All voting to be on paper ballots and hand counted.
Vote of Confidence by Citizen Initiative provides a method of elected official recall and even 'freezing' elected official duties, and provides this uniformly from local to federal elected officials, including judges and the president.
Please do not make the mistake of thinking that you have read The Reset Button document, if you only read the executive summary.
Ready to "Punch the button and punch them out"?
You can see what class war war looks like if you pay attention:
(PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
