    for some time that DHS is involved in this and we were pooh pooh'd as promoting a conspiracy theory.  But when we see that some of the toughest crack downs have been in states and cities with Democrats in charge, it is hard not to believe that someone higher up in this Democratic administration is pressing for these occupations and demonstrations to end.

    The Occupy movement has ripped back the veil of illusion that has long obscured the truth to reveal that most of our government, regardless of political party, is owned by the rich and powerful.
