Should they call this "occupy" anything? LOL! It is more like "Every-Fourth-Weekend-El Camino Real."

Hopefully, we won't have some of the crime associated with this group like many of the other cities.

Peninsula Peace and Justice Center is not about peace or justice. It is just a left-wing group. They are an outgrowth of the 60's/70's protest movement, and they are getting very long in the tooth. History has passed them by.

This sounds great. Maybe we can get a bunch of the 1%'ers to show up with "We are the 1%" placards.

Thanks for the warning. I'll make sure to avoid that area tomorrow.

Yawn ..

Wonder if the P/J Center people will also be conducting a tour through the Palo Alto neighborhoods where the mortgages that were made to Palo Alto homeowners was spent buy homes that ultimately generated the tax dollars that pay for the schools and some portion of the City government.

Will the P/J Center people have the courage to scream "shame, shame" at Palo Altans who go to work every day, to pay their off their home loans to these terrible banks?

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Finally they get it partially right. Now if they would just stay at City Hall, representative of the over the top government...

Perspective: Are you for real? You forgot Mao Tse Tung, Voldemort and Dr. Evil!

Nayeli: I agree. I encourage the Palo Alto police to display more restraint than the Oakland PD and to not launch teargas and rubber bullets into crowds of peaceful protesters, including Iraq War veterans.

To those silly folks at the Peninsula Peace & Justice Center: What? You're STILL upset about our illegal wars, worldwide torture regime unaccountable to international law, corrupt oligarchic financial system and a government totally beholden to the wealthiest elites?

Don't you realize it's easier to ignore such injustices? Ignore our network of secret drone bases: Web Link, our president's decision to assassinate American citizens without any due process: Web Link and the fact we have the worst income inequality since the Great Depression: Web Link. Don't worry that the most powerful factions are virtually unaccountable to the rule of law. Web Link

Seriously, though, the corporate-controlled media has done everything possible to demean and ridicule the #Occupy movement. They have failed. #OccupyEverywhere is growing. Americans are waking up, along with the rest of the world. This movement will not go away.

As the great Chris Hedges said, "This one could take them all down." Web Link

Yes, I am for real. No, I didn't include Mao Tse Tung ( you may recall he is dead) nor Dr. Evil ( you may not realize this, but that is a fictional character).

Link to the support for OWS by the Communist Party USA ( though they are quick to say they are really for "socialism") Web Link

Link to the support by the American Nazi Party ( by the way, also quick to call itself "socialist"..hmm...seeing a common thread here? Nazis and Communists alike trying to claim the title "socialists"..hmmm) Web Link

Link to New Black Panther "leader" Jamarhl "Kill Whitey" Crawford speaking at OWS Boston Web Link

I am only allowed 3 links per post, so I will let you all find the rest of your own links. But this is a good start.

Again, look at who is in bed together with the OWS and decide, Palo Alto, ..are you with them or against them? Never forget who the Democrats are with, our own Eshoo proudly among them herself.

But they are barking at the wrong tree.
