For the past several weeks I have watched and read news about the Occupy Wall Street protests with both interest and admiration. I thought The New York Times hit the nail on the head in an editorial Saturday:

“The message — and the solutions — should be obvious to anyone who has been paying attention since the economy went into a recession that continues to sock the middle class while the rich have recovered and prospered. The problem is that no one in Washington has been listening.”

“At this point, protest is the message: income inequality is grinding down that middle class, increasing the ranks of the poor, and threatening to create a permanent underclass of able, willing but jobless people. On one level, the protesters, most of them young, are giving voice to a generation of lost opportunity.”

From the economy, to the climate crisis our leaders have pursued solutions that are not solving our problems, instead they propose policies that accomplish little. With democracy in crisis a true grassroots movement pointing out the flaws in our system, is the first step in the right direction. Count me among those supporting and cheering on the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Fat chance when I read the post around the nation?

They have done a great bang-up job of making Gore look like he is only in it to make a buck too!

He bet big on Google when Yahoo was king, but they miss that somehow and assume his money comes only from green endeavors of lies and they have muddled his fate very well indeed!

Just look at the money news on Google today. If we only had put $10,000 or more down when he did, I would be living on Oahu!

Its not what we know its what we know for sure that scares me, Gore says!

Well they know for sure he is a charlatan shame they so smugly think.

I wanna catch some neutrino's out of here as soon as possible!

Good link from Huffington Post


This quote by Al sums up everything so well.

“At this point, protest is the message: income inequality is grinding down that middle class, increasing the ranks of the poor, and threatening to create a permanent underclass of able, willing but jobless people. On one level, the protesters, most of them young, are giving voice to a generation of lost opportunity.”

Gore Strongly Supports #Occupy Wall Street

by Brian Merchant, Brooklyn, New York on 10.14.11

The #OccupyWallStreet movement -- which has now spilled into Brooklyn and inspired protests across the world -- is gaining some high profile supporters. So far, notable backers have included Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Klein, Michael Moore, Kanye West, and Cornell West, among others. Now, Al Gore has voiced some powerful support for the movement.

Here's what he said:

"From the economy to the climate crisis our leaders have pursued solutions that are not solving our problems, instead they propose policies that accomplish little," Gore wrote. "With democracy in crisis a true grassroots movement pointing out the flaws in our system is the first step in the right direction. Count me among those supporting and cheering on the Occupy Wall Street movement," the Global Post reports.

Gore has long been a critic of corporate interference in politics, so it comes as no surprise that he'd unambiguously back a movement that seeks to address the damage that the imbalance of wealth has done to American democracy.

The former vice president also wrote in a blog post that "he has been following news of the protests for several weeks "with both interest and admiration," according to the Post.

Of course he is -- this is precisely the kind of grassroots movement Gore called for in his recent 24 Hours of Reality event.

I'm really very glad to see Al support Occupy. I do too.

Speaking of occupying things, I'll be moving from Florida to Massachusetts next week. I just lost my job, and will be moving northwards to find work in New England starting 11/1/11.

I'm really sorry to hear you lost your job, Nagasakee. That really sucks.

Good luck finding work in MA. They have awesome health care, a kick-butt "Occupy" movement...and Elizabeth Warren. That's a good start.
