The View From #OccupyMN

By LilDebbie in Politics
Wed Oct 19, 2011 at 09:11:17 AM EST
Tags: #OWS, #OccupyMN, #OccupyWallStreet (all tags)

Last Saturday the shit was to hit the fan. The county sheriff issued an ultimatum: no gorram tents. The protesters resolved not to back down. Tents were going up at 4 o'clock and I wanted to be there to see the hot hippie beat down action. Thoroughly liquored up from a breakfast of coffee and bourbon and a lunchtime black & tan, popcorn in hand, I descended upon the people's plaza.

Sadly, Sheriff Stanek is a stand up guy and above cracking hippie skulls. Nothing went down except the arrest of some crazy bitch for violating a restraining order from an earlier incident involving sidewalk chalk. See if I volunteer for your campaign again, Rick! In any event, my camera and I recorded the events for posterity. Let history not forget just how lame these people were.


Much has been made of the lack of any meaningful message attached to the #Occupy movement. Indeed, #OccupyMN appears to agree that the incoherent rabble is somewhat problematic. Despite the formation of a committee, there was a dearth of ideas generated from a week of sitting around and trying to achieve consensus. One wonders why they're all unemployed. Not only that, but one of the three Anonymous veterans (none of whom were masked; all the Guy Fawkes in the crowd were fucking n00bs who no doubt purchased their shit at Hot Topic) I ran into explained that the previous evening's general assembly was met with much drama over how to respond to the sheriff's ultimatum. While he was not privy to the details, I'll let the results speak for themselves.

The tents are transparent, you see, like Wall Street is not, or so I gathered from the blowhard who emceed this retarded pep rally.

Running low on popcorn and concerned no actual tents were to be erected, I lamented my lack of entertainment with my fellow Anon when suddenly the crowd began to move. Led by some glitterati faggot, the protesters boldly marched... to the other side of the Hennepin county courthouse; the grassy side. Alright! Shit was going down. This is what I, and many others, came to see! Tents were assembled, the local MSM deployed the talking heads, and the protesters linked arms in a circle around their high end temporary shelters with all their sleeping bags and shit, but the sheriff deputies just took pictures like the rest of us. What a fucking gyp.

That said, it wasn't a total wash. The people's macaroni and cheese was pretty tasty and someone even brought delicious loli. Some idiot insisted I take his picture holding some stupid book and some other idiots were pushing some stupid movie, but one of them at least had the good sense to hide his shame. The whole thing reeked of a bunch of wannabe revolutionaries symbolically sticking it to the man because none of them would ever dare do so in any way that mattered. I guess the lesson here is that if you're looking for an amateurish blowjob from some skinny iFaggot, the #Occupy movement is where to be.

I found it non-threatening, blog-like, and kind of pointless, thus mirroring the occupy "movement".

From my knowledge of dog-boners I would say that's only a halfie since you can't see any pink bit.

Did you bring your guns in case things got out of control?

I Am The 0.5% (1.85 / 7) (#5)
by Zombie Jesus Christ on Mon Oct 17, 2011 at 09:19:17 PM EST

That's the incidene of Schizoaffective Disorder in the general population.

There have been some protests where I live.  I saw a poster about one in the cafe I've been hanging out in lately.  all the protesters were totally chill so there was no law enforcement action at all.

LilDebbie, I do understand why you're down on The Commies and all, but you should understand that one reason The Commies were so murderous was that they were trying to defend themselves against Wall Street types:

All but forgotten to history is that damn near the instant the Russian Revolution succeeded, the United States invaded Siberia.  I don't know how the Hell they planned to get from there to Moscow though, as there was thousands of miles of deep woods in between, dirt roads where there were any roads at all, and no Trans-Siberian Railroad yet.

Long before Hitlor came to power, the Communists were totally all over the Weimar Republic.  But big-business was a heavy backer of the Nazi Party.  Henry Ford continued to sell stuff to the Germans long into the american involvement in the war, until the Feds finally put a stop to him.  and you know the serial numbers tattooed onto the arms of Holocaust victims?  The accounting records for which those numbers were the primary key were maintained by Hollerith card tabulating machines manufactured by none other than IBM.

Back in the day, some miners in Colorado - copper, I think - went on strike.  The mine owners ordered their security guards to set up Gatling Guns on a hill overlooking the miners' tent city, then gunned them all down in totally cold blooded and cruel fashion.  There was nowhere to take cover from the hail of bullets.

Not just the men who worked the mines and wanted little more than to earn a decent wage, but their wives and children as well.

I don't have a citation handy, but it would not take long to dig one up.  Somehow my US and Foreign History teacher in high school whose Republican leanings put your own completely to shame sensed my innate leftist tendencies, so he suggested I do my US history term paper on the International Workers of the World, better known as The Wobblies.

The Wobblies didn't just march around with picket signs.  They fucked shit up.  Those who weren't beaten to death by the cops went to prison for many years.  If the Wobblies had succeeded in their quest, American would be  a Communist country, and it would be all those former Wall Street bankers who'd be like the people I meet damn near every day, who ask me not for spare change, but for a few dollars so they can get something to eat.

I can't do it every time they ask, as I'm perpetually busted myself, but to the extent I can, when I get panhandled like that, I take them out for a nice meal, where I tell them to order anything they want.

The greatest kindness one can do to a complete stranger is not to help him out with money or even food, but to acknowledge his mere existence as a human being, and to, if just for a short while, offer him your genuine friendship.

Occupy Atlantis (2.00 / 6) (#12)
by Zombie Jesus Christ on Mon Oct 17, 2011 at 10:47:36 PM EST

I once had a consulting gig for a hedge fund on Paradise Island in The Bahamas.  I think that was called Pig Island or some such before some developer bought it all up and made it damn near the most desirable property on the entire planet.

When I was in The Special Motel I was shown a DVD of the remake of James Bond's Casion Royal.  There's a scene where Bond pretends to be a car-parking guy at a Bahamian country club, then instead of parking the guy's car, Bond drives it into the parking lot and slams it head-on into some other car.  Not long after that he gets to pork some married chick who he meets in the beach there.

I'm not one hundred percent certain, but the beach-side resort where Bond pulled those two little stunts sure looks a lot like the place where the wealthies man I have ever met or am ever likely to meet took me out to lunch during my job interview.  I tried the Conch Fritters at their recommendation, but there is not much actual Conch in them.  But Conch Salad roadise stands are all over the place.  It's very cheap, has lots of Conch, and is totally to die for.

Despite the fact that this guy had more money than God, he put me up in the cheapest hotel he could find.  Perhaps that's the very reason he has more money than God while I don't.

I was very puzzled that among the cable selections on the TV there in my hotel room was NTV, which is a Newfoundland television network.  It was pretty cool to get the news from back home, and to see all the sights of Newfoundland, but I had to figure that the cable company offered NTV in The Bahamas because it was available at firesale prices.

However, one benefit of this fleabag motel I was staying at was that it happened to be owned by the same company that owned Atlantis.  That place has to be the biggest damn hotel on the whole Planet of the Earth.  I was told when I checked in that while my accomodations were quite low-budget, I could avail myself of all the recreational facilities at Atlantis as if I were a guest there.

One day I was wandering around after getting off work when I came across a small cove where Atlantis guests moored their yachts when they were in town for some casino action or maybe a bowl of Conch Salad from their favorite roadside stand.

Look man, these yachts put those that tool around Penobscot Bay completely to shame.  Some of them were damn near as big as coast guard cutters, and must have had crews of dozens of people, not just to operate the yachts but to serve drinks and fancy Horse Doovers to bazillionaires and all the h07 ch1x0rs he was banging on the way down from T3h H4m70n5 to Paradise Island.

The guy offered me a permanent job for his company.  One of the benefits would have been that I could participate in his hedge fund, which I have always described as "A License to Print Money".  

He had software that could more or less accurately predict the futures market.  You're NOT supposed to be able to do that; day traders always think they can "time the market", so that they can always buy low and sell high, but somehow day trading never works out any better than a gambling addiction.  Those who don't have significant expertise in finance are always advised to diversify their investment to average out the risk, then to hold on to their assets forever, only selling them when they retire.

Not this guy.  By the time I consulted for him, what I euphemistically refer to as a "futures trading decision support system" would execute tens of thousands of trades per day in a completely automated fashion.  He had a very high-speed Internet connection that I think was short-range microwave from across the channel, with incoming day being the latest trade figures, and outgoing data being buy and sell orders.

His software was the biggest single executable I have ever seen in my entire life, let alone actually contributed to.  I've worked on the Classic Mac operating system, but it had many, many different software packages in it.  This behemoth was just one single Windows 2000 .exe with more DLLs than I could even count.

As a result of my work for him, which a year after my contribution went live still had not one reported bug, his license to print money was able to print money twice as fast.

However, I'm pretty sure he did not predict the economic meltdown.  I have a good friend who worked for this guy at a little shop he ran in downtown Vienna long before he got into investment.  I asked my friend how my client was doing during the downturn.  Even though they are now the best of friends, he replied that he had not heard from him in a long time.  My client was ordinarily a quite sociable guy; I expect he was devoting his energy to putting out fires.

Bonita wanted to visit The Bahamas more than life itself.  The client offered to pay Bonita's way during my job interview, but I would have to front the airfare then get reimbursed upon my arrival.  We were both quite crushed that it was everything we could do to fly me there.  I damn near didn't have the cab fare to get to my hotel.

During my interview the guy asked me how much my air fare from Maine had been.  I said it was about five hundred dollars.  Then pulled five one hundred dollars out of his wallet and handed them to me.  He didn't ask for a receipt or my used plane ticket or anything.  I'm pretty sure this guy was just like Bill Gates: if either of them dropped five hundred dollars on the ground, it wouldn't be worth their while to pick it up.  They could earn more doing something else.

As for why I turned down their perm job offer, and insisted on doing all but a small portion of my work off-site, from our home in Owl's Head.

This guy was in The Bahamas because there are no taxes there.  Investors in the US have to pay Capital Gains Tax.  The Republicans all whine about it, but they do pay it and the stock and futures markets more or less do just fine.  

But this guy was too cheap to hire programmers for any decent wage; he only hired me because he had been completely unable to even propose how to architect what I actually implemented, and implemented quite well.  All but one of his coders were brought in from countries where coders earn less than half of what those in the US do.  I got no end of crap for the money I was asking, even though I earned a lot less working for him than for a lot of my other work.

But the Bahamian government has to raise money somehow.  Just about the only industry in The Bahamas is tourism.  The soil is very poor so there is no real agriculture.  There could be commercial fishing but other than feeding Conch to tourists there really isn't.

The two things they do to raise money is that absolutely anyone can get a work permit to live and work in The Bahamas for ten thousand dollars.  I never learned whether that was an annual or one-time fee.  

This fact damn near got me deported when I refuse to lie to an immigration official at the airport, when I said I'd come there for a business meeting.  He asked if I'd been "set up," that is, whether my client had forked over ten grand so the government might be able to pave a road or two.  I said I had not been, as I worked in the US.  I was just there to meet with a client.  There was damn near smoke coming out of this guy's ears as he was trying to figure out whether my client owed the "set up" fee or not.  In the end he stamped "Take No Paying Work" or some such into my passport, then wrote an expiration date of two weeks.  

When my client wanted me to overstay my visa, I flatly refused.  I enjoyed the work and the people, but I was missing Bonita something awful and regarded The Bahamas as a total Hellhole.

Places like Paradise Island are totally luxurious, but one could walk over a short bridge over the channel to find the locals living in abject poverty.  This because the other way that the government raised money is that they had a 50% import duty.  Because nothing of any substance was manufactured in The Bahamas, you had to important it from the US, then fork over half its retail price to a government that was barely able to keep its roads paved.

I found the divide between rich and poor there absolutely appalling, and wanted no part of it.  Neither my client nor any of his employees seemed to even notice what could not possibly escape my attention.  To the extent they even acknowledged the people who really grew up in The Bahamas, they were servants, and not very good ones, because I never heard any end of their complaints about the locals being lazy and having no work ethic.

-perate.

While there is the occasional human who really can go it alone in the wilderness, there are very few who are able to do it for any length of time.  The vast majority of people prefer to live, work, and spend their free time in the company of others.  The very worst punishment a prisoner can endure is solitary confinement.

This clearly comes to us from the wild apes, who always live in packs.  They cooperate in all kinds of ways, say to pick lice off each other.

A good friend in Nova Scotia volunteered for a wild wolf research center.  It was seven acres of heaily wooded land surrounded by a tall chainlink fence.  Other than to treat them for parasites, the wolves were left alone so the scientists could study their culture.

Wolves don't have alpha males like domesticated dogs do.  They have alpha females.  Only the alpha females can mate; the other females in the pack get no sex at all.

An elderly alpha female finally passed away.  It was clear to everyone who her successor would be.  When this "princess" finally was crowned "queen" of the pack, she made the horrible error of bragging about her newfound status in front of all her inferiors.

The whole rest of the pack ganged up on her and tore her completely to shreds.

BUT SURELY THAT'S NOT VEGAN YOU MONSTER

I doubt any of this hipster posturing is going to achieve anything, beyond the participants indulging their egos. Sure it will draw publicity to the "cause", but then what exactly is the cause? All the attempts to come up with a coherent message for the media have devolved into rambling lists which read like a 12 year old's ideas of why Communism would probably be totally awesome. (Or like a succession of trane's economic insights.)

Most of the "99%" people seem to be being crushed by huge debts for economically useless degrees, for which they should arguably be blaming the educational system, loan companies, Congress (for making such loans nondischargeable) and themselves for falling for the scam, before they get to the banks.

In leftist circles the same criticism is heard (none / 1) (#27)
by GreyGhost on Tue Oct 18, 2011 at 01:27:13 PM EST

Except it's that the OWS movement will achieve nothing, because Karl Marx said that for a true revolution to take place, it must be lead from the proletariat. Except Marx wrote all that shit in the 19th century, and there is no possible way he could see how modern capitalism has evolved. He also said that he might be wrong, and not to take what he says too seriously - but that didn't turn out so well.

Okay - well this whole thing got started because a hipster blog of culture jammers (Adbusters) put out a call to occupy Wall Street, and they struck a nerve with the majority of the American public. Hipsters from middle to upper middle class backgrounds were the first on board along with the Millenials. So Millenial hipsters are leading the revolution. Who would have thought that would happen?

The trouble with the proletariat leading anything is that they are all busting their asses at shitty ass jobs to pay the bills, so they don't have time to lead shit. So Marx screwed up.

As far as not having a coherent message, they do, but the movement is leaderless and will stay that way. Their demands sound extreme - because - yeah they are. It's a revolutionary movement and they are struggling with how to create a new economic system that does not require constant growth to flourish. If you don't see a message, then you haven't been paying close enough attention.

The current market (none / 0) (#31)
by some nerd on Tue Oct 18, 2011 at 05:19:58 PM EST

requires constant growth because the human population and, on average, their consumption aspirations (China / India) continue to rise. This isn't inherently capitalism's fault, any system would have to find some way of dealing with it. We are seeing western birthrates tending to stabilise at or below replacement once most people live in dense urban areas with relative stability, but that's very much not the case elsewhere, and unfortunately environmentalists tell us that the carrying capacity of the earth is already being exceeded significantly so we can't rely on that effect to level things off in time.

I don't see any good options that can realistically be achieved with our ineffectual political structures. Resource wars followed by widespread government population controls may ultimately be inevitable. I'd like to think that as things really start to get difficult it will provide the impetus to finally begin colonising space and utilising its resources, but sci-fi fantasies aside this is a very difficult and expensive thing to do which in the beginning would likely be seen as hugely wasteful by most people. Sea cities?

We're fucked, even if these RADICAL ACTION WORKSHOPS accidentally come up with a good idea it stands no chance of being implemented.

Explaining why nothing else is going to step in and replace fossil fuels in our immediate future, and why our complex society is heading for a cliff requires that you get off your ass and read a couple of dozen books - and is not something I feel inclined to explaining in detail.

A ton of research is going into energy (none / 0) (#53)

Nothing coming down the pike comes close to the energy we get from fossil fuels. We don't need oil to live, but we are not going to be living at the level of material consumption we enjoy now.

And I'm not exactly thrilled with a burning desire to expend brainpower researching solutions that won't come close to filling the gap just so people such as yourself can go out and buy the latest iPhone.

After all my efforts to bring high quality images to this site all you fuckers can do is mis-link to this (probably lowrez) broken login needed imageshack b.s.? WTF?! Also, I think your obsessing on tents, mac and cheese, and law-n-order nannyism is a way of dodging the real issue--that they're good people committed to something that matters.

LilDebbie, your commitment to the restoration of the middle class is expected and welcome. As one of the underemployed, it is practically incumbent on you to be out there in the trenches with your fellow 99% to move our country back from the precipice of enslavement by the Wall Street oligarchs. Your devotion is an example to us all.

so much so that lildebbie acts defensive when he finds out that when Anonymous takes its masks off it's a bunch of commie hipsters and/or fags.

Maybe it's best nobody got their skull cracked, though... otherwise we might have lost lildebbie after the loll made him pitch his tent.

My Furry Cop Brother-in-Law (3.00 / 2) (#42)
by cockskin horsesuit on Tue Oct 18, 2011 at 11:21:50 PM EST

Although I'm way back in the closet, I like hairy, masculine men.

And my brother-in-law is fits my type to a "T": tall, early 30's, good looking, olive complexion, clean-shaven but with a dark heavy beard, black short hair with a slightly receding hairline, sexy brown twinkling eyes, an infectious laugh and a furry chest and ass that makes my dick woody just thinking about him! As a bonus, he's a cop in uniform. And I love a man in a uniform.

He's also a man's man, a cop's cop and a bear's bear. His chest has thick, dark furry hair on that goes over his shoulders and down his back. Ever since I met him, I've fantasized about running my tongue down his back and licking his ass. Then rolling him over and running my hands through the rug on his chest, sucking his dick and then fucking the daylights out of him.

But he and I are both married and he's a real conservative, southerner type. I always assumed he was straight as an arrow, too, and that my fantasies were one-sided. Then one day he asked me help him fix a problem with his home PC and I got curious.

I know all red-blooded men surf porn. I knew that he and his wife (a lab tech in the forensics lab) worked staggered shifts, so what did this guy surf while the "cat was away"? Perhaps maybe his still waters ran deeper? When he went out of the room to get ready for his duty shift and I took the opportunity to check his browser history files -- deleted. No recent documents. No cookies. No temp files. No history in his Windows Media Player. Nothing. Suspiciously nothing, in fact. Now I was determined. Such a complete lack of evidence only meant he was hiding a juicy secret or two.

I could hear him in the room down the hall rustling around getting in his uniform on. I only had a couple of minutes.

I undeleted some files from his hard drive using a utility program. Mostly boring stuff at first. News: shopping, humor, cop sites, military history sites... Then, paydirt: Porn galore! softcore redheads, older babes, big tits, Indian babes.... The voyeurism made my heart pound faster. Damn, it looked like he was straight after all.

There we still a few more files to check but unfortunately time was running out. I could hear him putting his gun on and checking the magazine clip for bullets. I undeleted a few more files and found some kinkier stuff. Cumshots. Double penetration. Bestiality. Cartoon Sex. She-males. Mother/son incest stories. I had to keep going. Then, there it was -- gay erotica: double paydirt! Pix of Big Dicks. Twinks. Men fucking men. Men cocksucking. Gay male stories. He even wrote a couple of them himself! My heart started to pound hard and blood ran to my cheeks -- and to my dick.

I could hear him coming down the hall. I started quickly closing windows on his PC but it was too late. He caught me in the act and, holy shit, was he mad.

"What the fuck do you think you're doin'?!"

"I-I-I ...," I sputtered lamely.

He spun me around and then caught sight of the bulge in my pants.

"You're under arrest," he said, grabbed my arm and threw me down on the ground. Even though I was slightly bigger than him, I was so shocked at being caught red handed that I didn't put up a fight.

He took some handcuffs off his belt, pulled my hands behind my back, sat on my and cuffed me face down. (In a weird way, I sort of enjoyed it.)

"Now we have to figure out a punishment," He said.

I was puzzled. A punishment?

"OK, douchebag," he continued. "Here's what we're gonna do."

He rolled me over on my back and sat on my legs. He reached down and unbuckled my belt, unbuttoned my pants, and unzipped me. He pulled my pants down around my ankles. My cock was still hard bulging through my briefs. He put his hands on my balls and began to gently squeeze. Not too hard but enough pain to be exquisite. My dick pulsed. A small spot of pre-cum spread as it seeping through my underwear.

"Just checking," he said. "So, you really are a gay prick," he added.

He rolled me onto my stomach and pulled down my underwear.

"Right then. On your knees and bend over, dickhole," he ordered.

The cuffs were hurting a bit and I obeyed.

He ran his masculine hands up the inside of my legs and until he felt my balls and rock hard cock. I then heard him form a wad of lubricating spit in his mouth and drip it onto my waiting ass. He rubbed the spit around my ass and unclipped the baton from his belt.

He mercilessly shoved it up my ass. I groaned.

"Hey! You're not supposed be enjoying this, you faggoty cocksucker," he exclaimed. "Maybe you need something that'll really stretch you."

I heard him unzip. More lubricating spit -- this time he dripped it on his rock hard dick. He put his hands on my hips and I felt the head of his cock against my ass. I looked back. His crotch was very hairy and the head of his cock was huge -- round like a beer can. I tightened my hole as I braced for him to enter.

"Suit yourself," he grinned. "That's just the way I like it. Snug."

He thrust hard and I felt him inside my poop shaft. His hard rod was wide and meaty. My hole stretched with pain. He began slowly -- in and out -- in and out. Then faster. And faster still. I felt his balls slapping against by legs. He reached around with one hand and gently squeezed my balls while grabbing my cock with his other hand. He began to hand pump my dick as he continued thrusting into me.

I started to cum. My load spurted all up my chest. As I came, my ass began to pulsate around his dick. He let out a groan and filled my chute with his hot juice.

He uncuffed me and we got dressed.

Now that we knew each other's little secret, I couldn't wait to read his next erotic story...
