Update: Since it is perfectly legal to sleep on the sidewalk in NYC, but illegal to set up any kind of structure in which to do so, the use of tents is now being discouraged. You are more likely to be thrown out the first day if you set up a tent. Rain, if occupation lasts several days, might make that situation complicated. Personally I would bring one just in case without setting it up until I...

Woohoo! Hitting the big media, finally: “We need to get government back into the hands of the 99 percent, not the one percent,” Csapo said. “Right now, the law is currently written for the one percent, and we are seeing an incredible amount of wealth being extracted.” “The aim is getting back to more of a participatory Democracy,” said Csapo.

These people really have their heads in their asses: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than the spectacle of idiocy, self-centeredness, greed and anti-Americanism seen in Madison, Wisconsin last winter, now comes a “Day of Rage” planned for our nation’s Constitution Day on September 17… Yes, on the day most Americans (the patriotic...
