    Hi Jenny Ann,

    It took me awhile to get here with travel and changing computers, but I finally arrived at your door. Thank you for all your visits to my door in between.

    I do not know where this woman is sharing her sign, but from my visits to the Occupy Seattle, San Francisco. Portland, and our small group….the group is fighting for her and her family too….their rights and safety…and all those products ( maybe out of goat skins and mud) but my understanding is that this is against the speculation being done again the 99% In other words, Phantom money…and our pensions funds being played with without us having any voice and then being sold to other countries such as China to make a very few lots of fantasy money….this is about having no voice and being controlled by corporations ( which are now people in USA)

    David Korten’s books “When Corporations Rule the World” and “Agenda for a New Economy” explains this whole history and dynamic so plainly and simply….The 99% are not against this woman and her life and work…they are voicing for her…
    but of course, the word spinners are right out there saying that the protesters are crazy people and building fear into as many people as possible… People are so afraid….and so unthinking

    I just read a fascinating post about all the Occupy people in Washington DC and the huge numbers of them that are Veterans….and their concerns – they fought for us and the Wall Street folks are messing with their funds too…and health care.

    Yes this is another perspective…and the whole times right now are making the for a lot of fear…

    My greatest conclusion is that we have reached a Materialistic Peak in our journey and we have truly dumbed ourselves right down to the numb….

    and look at all the people on Black Friday attacking and pepper spraying each other over a few flat screen tvs….dangled in front of their ignorance…just another way to make more money for the few.

    I went for peace and knowledge…

    Yeah it often seems like people put more effort into putting down others for fighting for what they believe in- like the occupy movements, gay marriage, etc- than anything else. If people want to stand up for their beliefs and they’re doing so peacefully, I don’t know why they need to take so much criticism and need to get pepper sprayed and all this craziness. People protest for things all the time and they don’t get treated like the occupiers are being treated. It’s sad and shows you how messed up a lot of things in this world are.
