Still I shall Occupy

It is early AM. I awaken early because of a dream of being arrested without just cause.

News reports of people being arrested and beaten in other states #occupywallstreet fill my twitter and Facebook accounts.

This protest will be one where I shall not bring my son. I prepare for arrest though I have no plans to break any laws.

Do I fear? No. My belief is in doing right for the right reason. I join #occupywallstreet for many reasons. My main reason for joining is to encourage Americans to seek out information on their own. The more we know the more we grow into understanding our rights as citizens. When we sit back and allow others to tell to us our rights we loose them.

Occupywallstreet is important and it is important that we do not stop. We must continue to occupy. No matter the beatings. No matter the detainment. We must stand for our economic rights.

We need universal healthcare in America.
We need our transportation and information infrastructure upgraded.
We need to improve our public education system to compete on the works level.
We need ease in leading to the real small business owners.

I occupy for a better America.

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
