In The News:
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

[Some insurrectionary wit with a grim sense of humor once said "Revolutionaries are dead men on leave"... Ignore him and get ON with it! After the commentary, take "The Pledge To Resist"... Saul Williams. Courtesy of the respective artists.]
«o» The #Occupation continues in the Oakland California park across from City Hall after a police riot that left #Occupier Scott Olsen, a two-tour of Iraq US Marine, critically injured after having been struck at point blank range by what appears to have been a tear gas canister. Olsen is now in stable but still critical condition... able to breath on his own and can write but not speak.

In the glare of that truly awful global publicity, including a planned march in Egypt's Tahrir Square today in honor of him and massive numbers of people... mostly young people with a baaaasd attitude, streaming to the Oakland protest, the mayor of Oakland is now saying that the police presence will be reduced dramatically and... She supports the protest. Right.

She's a little late (Click the image for a full size version):

That image courtesy of a Reddit posting where there were 600 comments in the first 5 hours, FEW of them friendly to the Oakland police or the city's government. I suspect the "Redditors" were quite busy removing posts that threatened, dast I say "Retribution", from many people including some, like the USMC-Affiliated gentleman above, who count Scott Olsen as a "Brother".

Locally, a contingent of Veterans from VFW Bill Motto Post #5888 traveled to Oakland last night to attend the vigil outside the hospital where Scott Olsen is being treated for a skull fracture and about 50 people from #OccupySantaCruz held a candlelight vigil for his speedy recovery in the middle of the main shopping district downtown.

For those who'd like to know...
"Bill Motto was a combat medic in Vietnam. VFW Post 5888 is in Santa Cruz, CA. Consists mostly of Vietnam Veterans. It is the only VFW post whose members believe in and exercise left wing "Wage Peace" politics." [FaceBook Page]
«o» Something actually passed the House of Representatives! A bill originating on the president's desk that will cut back the withholding time and payment amounts made by small businesses to the Internal Revenue Service cleared the House yesterday. President Obama has promised that at least one executive order a week until the end of the year designed to hopefully jump start the US economy will leave his desk with a signature.

«o» Governor Jerry Brown of California has broached the idea of raising the retirement age for public employees, who are probably the majority of the few people left in California receiving retirement benefits paid by an employer.

«o» Expunged... Those "Freedoms they hate us for" - Today is the tenth anniversary of the PATRIOT Act. It removed many of the constitutional protections that Americans have had since the inception of the republic... More in the commentary.

In OTHER News:

Speaking of insurrection and the violence in response to #Occupy by the Oakland Police among other police agencies around the US... The consternation among governments intending to quell any forthcoming insurrection around the world is noticeable...

What CAN you do to suppress masses of people in uprising around the world who are not presenting an armed resistance to your actions?

David Graeber @ The New Left Review... The New Anarchists
In the corporate media, the word ‘violent’ is invoked as a kind of mantra—invariably, repeatedly—whenever a large action takes place: ‘violent protests’, ‘violent clashes’, ‘police raid headquarters of violent protesters’, even ‘violent riots’ (there are other kinds?). Such expressions are typically invoked when a simple, plain-English description of what took place (people throwing paint-bombs, breaking windows of empty storefronts, holding hands as they blockaded intersections, cops beating them with sticks) might give the impression that the only truly violent parties were the police. The US media is probably the biggest offender here—and this despite the fact that, after two years of increasingly militant direct action, it is still impossible to produce a single example of anyone to whom a US activist has caused physical injury. I would say that what really disturbs the powers-that-be is not the ‘violence’ of the movement but its relative lack of it; governments simply do not know how to deal with an overtly revolutionary movement that refuses to fall into familiar patterns of armed resistance. [In Full @ New Left Review]

I was deployed to Iraq 4x

5 of my friends are dead
1 of my friends is missing his arm
1 of my friends killed himself
I've been blown up 2x by roadside bombs
Hearing fireworks makes me nervous
I can't sleep at night

All so bankers and war profiteers could get richer

I am the 99%

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.

Remember... Capitalism has a gun at your head every moment you're alive:

(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
