The skillet is hot

Occupy Wall Street is the skillet in America finally becoming too hot for 99% to continue to handle. I watched one of the female, Leymah Gbowee, Nobel Peace Prize winners describe her ordeal in Liberia. She detailed of how she lived in fear for 14 years. She described how after 14 years the fear gave way to anger. It was that anger that drove them to protest. They had reached the point of nothing to lose and nothing to gain by being fearful.

We in America must speak out now. We do not need civil war nor do we need to remain silent in fear of our corporate overlords. I read a tweet tonight where Karl Rove asked Occupiers who gave to them the right to occupy? I guess Karl is not familiar with our founding fathers. However his question showed much. It showed how our public holdings have become privately owned. It showed how we are not free. It showed how we must ask permission to have access to public property. It showed how only 1% of the people actually control our resources.

We must act now or lose it all tomorrow. Occupy. Now.
