Spring Has Sprung!

Occupy Wall Street May Day ‘General Strike’ Planned With Unions, Immigrant Groups

Occupy Wall Street activists are planning for a nationwide series of demonstrations billed as a “general strike” on Tuesday in what could be the biggest test of the movement’s organizing muscle since the winter.

Touted as a “day without the 99 percent,” and modeled in part on massive immigration reform protests in 2006, Occupy groups in New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay area, Chicago and more than 100 other cities will join forces with immigrant rights groups and labor unions. Organizers expect tens of thousands of supporters to swarm the streets in those cities on the anniversary of the traditional labor movement holiday.

“No work, no school … don’t bank, don’t buy,” posters for the day that have been circulating around New York say. But activists are mixed on whether they expect the day of action to result in large-scale walk-offs from work, and one of the most controversial actions, a proposal to block traffic over the Golden Gate Bridge, was called off over the weekend.

Yes, don’t go to the school you didn’t pay for, and by all means, don’t get the education offered. And, of course, not working helps you…… somehow.  And, somehow I’m thinking the banks aren’t going to miss your business.  I’m just guessing. 

This is pretty amusing to me.  And, I, for one, am all in favor of this….. if they’d keep the murder and rapes at nil, theft at a minimum and hygiene as a bit more of a priority as opposed to last year.

For one, it gives me something to write about…. easily.  And two, this is the base of the base of Obama.  Get ’em girls!!!

    May Day is a communist day of celebration.
    However it is also a day of play in the Hawaiian Islands, at least it was in the 70s when I was there for vacation on May first.
    I found this for you.

      In my single youth, May day celebrations were a win! The rest was simply vapid thoughts about why people should pay you to sit on your arse.

    America: it’s crawling with Communists! One of the curses in Deuteronomy 28 of a people that continues to turn away from God is their enemies gain control over them. That was true of Israel in the time of Jesus—Rome ruled over them. Jesus told the Jewish people to recognize the signs of the times. America’s enemies have been creeping in over the years. America needs to recognize the signs of the times. Her enemies have been slowly gaining control. America but needs to turn back to God and a dramatic change toward freedom will happen.

    Unfortunately the prophets are saying these riots are eventually going to turn very violent. America is heading for a very bad time.
