I visited the occupation of Wall Street late afternoon yesterday, after recording this Freak Storm sermon. What an unusual time we live in. Tropical storms and people storms sweep through the public squares. Climate change and national debt are Devils releasing deadly energy. Leaders in politics seem like ciphers, drained of energy. But Earth defenders are flying, Vendana Shiva, Wangari Maathai, Bill Mckibben - and those kids at Liberty Square.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Actually, the young on Wall Street gnat-batting their oppressors makes perfect common sense.  It is all the young have left to do lest they feel totally marginalized by a society that claims it cherishes its children when it's so patently clear that what they cherish in little children is that they are easy to market to.
    My respect and support for all the young on Wall Street who insist on their relevancy and who demand some modicum of penance from a financial system that has less dignity than four besotted guys shooting craps in an alley somewhere.

    of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights... the police, when they steal the signs from the protestors, and steal their PAs (oh, because of noise ordinance) and then their megaphones (still noisy, but no longer amplified electronically) and next steal their native voice, and will finally steal their right to exist physically in space (oh, there will be property ordinances, or health requirements, or some such edict).

    It is common sense that we will all find ourselves in some civic park, with a megaphone, holding flowers up to guns, and holding men of greed accountable to actions.
