In The News:
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» Today president Obama introduces the piece of his Congressionally rejected Jobs Bill that gives hiring priority to veterans and subsidizes those jobs. Will the Republicans reject it like they've rejected all the other piece of the bill so far?

«o» It's been a four month Monsoon season in Thailand with the rains falling steadily since July, and it's ALL draining towards Bangkok. It's notable that the old part of the city of Bangkok with it's canals for 'roadways' is holding together, but the urbanized paved roadway areas of the city... well let's just say they have 'involuntary canals' that don't work as well as the traditional ones. The city airport may have to close soon.

«o» A federal court has ruled that the graphic new warning labels tobacco companies are supposed to put on cigarette packages MAY violate the tobacco companies right to free speech and have been stayed pending court hearings. That puts the new labels on hold for perhaps two or three years.

«o» The Italian parliament will vote on a number of key economic reforms today. If it doesn't pass, the Berlusconi government will probably be forced out, leaving Italy without a working government.

«o» There are a number of local and state elections around the United States today. One to watch that has national implications is Ohio where there will be an attempt to undo an anti-labor law passed by the Republican dominated state legislature which would for the most part eliminate collective bargaining rights for state workers.

o For information on HOW state legislatures come to be Republican (ie. business interest) dominated, even in Democratically oriented 'labor states' listen to the commentary for details.

In OTHER News:

The Santa Cruz Sentinel, Razer's local Yellow Journal of a newspaper headlined it:

Occupy Santa Cruz marches on City Hall:
Permit, arrests, increasing tension at monthlong encampment

Which focused on 'problems':
Several arrests -- seemingly focused primarily on the homeless camping population -- have been made in recent days, including one after a parks employee operating a leaf blower was assaulted.
...which were essentially created by the city's decades long socioeconomic war on the local working population of the city that left literally thousands homeless and jobless over the years since the city's 'redevelopment in the wake of the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.

For instance... The incident cited above happened well away from the #OccupySantaCruz encampment and was committed by someone not in any way associated with the protest.

Further, this statement by the mayor, who is known as 'the boy mayor' by many people in Santa Cruz:
Asking you to have Porta-Potties for 70 people is not an infringement on the First Amendment.
...fails to mention the city has demanded THREE porta-cans for those '70 people', and the 'permit' as written disallowed use of the park's PUBLIC bathrooms by the encampment as well.

Considering that one of the rationales for delivering this ultimatum in the form of a 'non-commercial event permit' was the falsity that #OccupySantaCruz prevented others from using city park facilities belies the city's own hypocrisy... not to mention the slandering of people seeking to accept everyone into the encampment INCLUDING groups as disparate as the 'homeless' (who for the most part were housed and working locally before becoming homeless according to a recent census) and the proto-Fascist homeless scapegoating "Take Back Santa Cruz" group, statements to the effect of "Exclusion" seems a bit disingenuous.


Yours truly witnessed the siege of Santa Cruz City Hall and posted on it last night @ Auntie Imperial's News & Blog Review.

OccupySantaCruz Reads "The Riot Act" To The Political Cronies Of Santa Cruz California

«o» Backgrounder and link to the unsolicited 'permit' mentioned below Here

The cronies of the 1% of Santa Cruz got swarmed at city hall this afternoon...

At least 50 people from #OccupySantaCruz (California) marched to city hall today to deliver a mass vocal rejection of an ultimatum disguised as a 'non-commercial event permit' which would have limited the Occupier's autonomy and control over their encampment in San Lorenzo Park near the Santa Cruz County Court House, by the lovely banks of the San Lorenzo sewag... I mean "River" (really I do!) along with a number of other issues recounted at the background link above and in the rejection document authorized by the General Assembly that follows.

The crowd you see gathered above read the document in unison to city council members who were present and the city manager who had authorized the issuance of the 'permit'.

The city manager of Santa Cruz California claims that the police department 'serves at his pleasure'. In other words, the city council has delegated the day to day authority of the local police department to a hired manager.

Consensus among the Occupiers however is simply; Since the city manager is employed or fired at the city council's pleasure, they are indeed in charge of their own police force. Hence the attempt to trap these rats in their own lair for them all to hear the recited refusal to accept the regulations their manager was demanding of a first amendment related protest.

You could hear the reading of the following document all the way to the back of the City Hall complex:

Meanwhile, about another 50 people stood by at the information center on Water Street, one of the busiest traffic routes in the city, near the court house steps, to protect a Geodesic Dome structure which had been erected to protect the #Occupy visitors center from inclement weather, only to have it threatened with forcible removal by the city authorities.

We're waiting Santa Cruz city... ...THIS is what we expect to see:

"Bakunin had little time for Marx’s disdain for the peasantry and the lumpenproletariat of the urban slums. Marx, for all his insight into the self-destructive machine of unfettered capitalism, viewed the poor as counterrevolutionaries, those least capable of revolutionary action.

Bakunin, however, saw in the “uncivilized, disinherited, and illiterate” a pool of revolutionists who would join the working class and turn on the elites who profited from their misery and enslavement.

Bakunin proved to be the more prophetic.

The successful revolutions that swept through the Slavic republics and later Russia, Spain and China, and finally those movements that battled colonialism in Africa and the Middle East as well as military regimes in Latin America, were largely spontaneous uprisings fueled by the rage of a disenfranchised rural and urban working class, and that of dispossessed intellectuals.

"Revolutionary activity, Bakunin correctly observed, was best entrusted to those who had no property, no regular employment and no stake in the status quo." ~~Chris Hedges, A Master Class in Occupation, Monday, October 31, 2011

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...)
