Assholes on K Street

  Yesterday there were two kinds of assholes on K Street. The first group is there permanently.  They're the ones who buy off members of Congress and get them to do their bidding.  On behalf of the K Street lobbyists, Congress passed bad laws and did nothing to stop the Wall Street excesses and theft from the 99% that led to the destruction of our economy. That's why almost two thousand people converged on Washington DC this week - to Take Back the Capitol. On Tuesday, we descended on 99 congressional offices to tell our representatives that we [...]

Don’t Eat the Brown Acid!

OK, I know many of the participants here at Take Back the Capitol ( @99indc )  probably won't get the reference... and my age was still in the single digits when Woodstock became a giant mud pit, but that's what it feels like at the People's Camp this morning.

After an exciting day yesterday visiting our congressional representatives, today we'll [...]

I'm in Washington DC this week for a massive action "Take Back the Capitol". Today was a thing of beauty, as thousands of the 99% visited 99 congressional offices to tell our representatives that we need more jobs and less corporate influence over this country. I was in a group of around 30 people from Florida's 22nd district who wanted to meet with the man who is supposed to represent us -- Allen West. After waiting a couple of hours, West's Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff (along with the help of three Capitol Police they somehow needed [...]

Take Back the Capitol & Occupy Our Homes!

I'm heading back to Washington DC tonight - along  with thousands of 99ers!   From the official website: WHAT Thousands will converge on the nation’s capital to show Congress what democracy looks like, shine a light on corporate greed and the human suffering it has caused, and demand justice for the 99%. For four days we’ll hold spirited but peaceful actions, speak-outs, and protests—from the halls of the Capitol to the offices on K Street—as well as spend time together learning and sharing stories, ideas, and inspiration. A few highlights: Monday, December 5 – Set up the People’s Camp. After [...]
