I learned on Democracy Now that it costs NYC $36,000 per year to house a Homeless Person in a shelter…OR, the City could just give each Homeless Person a $10,000 Rental Subsidy instead…but no, NYC won’t do THAT!
This is one more statistic proving that our society has GONE WRONG. WAY WRONG.
…just to rub their noses in their own dirt, and remind them of their oath to PROTECT INNOCENT CIVILIANS, who are LAWFUL TAXPAYERS, who were EXECUTING THEIR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS…
and maybe we should call ourselves “Occupiers” NOT “Protesters”….
Just a thought.
CALL THE WHITE HOUSE COMPLAINT LINE:
Call the White House Switchboard:
Mention that you are part of the 99%, and that you know that the Federal Government is behind the nationwide crackdowns on the Occupy Movements, and that you DEMAND that the White House PROTECT THE TAX PAYER’S RIGHT TO ASSEMBLE!
You might also mention that the Constitution does NOT MENTION that our Rights can be suspended due to Camping, Curfews or Cleanliness.
And you might also mention that this POLICE BRUTALITY on Innocent Peaceful Protesters is a DISGRACE to our Country’s world-wide reputation, and proves to the rest of the world that our Government’s claims that we have Freedom of Speech and Right to Assembly is a complete LIE.
Seems we can have those rights - as long as we don’t try to use them!
Demand that the “Peace Officers” act Peacefully, and DEFEND THE RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS, NOT THE POCKETS OF THE 1%.
COPS ARE COVERING THEIR BADGE NUMBERS! HOW IS THIS CONSTITUTIONAL?
Call White House Switchboard:
Demand an end to the violent crackdowns around the country!
Don’t you know that evicting the Occupiers and Homeless who are living in tents in our public parks WILL NOT STOP THIS MOVEMENT?
You have ALREADY lost!!
Don’t lie to us and say that you are removing peaceful protesters “for their own protection”.
You are harassing us because you are running scared. You can see the future — the writing is on the wall, and it is not in your favor.
Tents or No Tents, YOU CANNOT TRAMPLE OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS indefinitely! We outnumber you! WE WILL PREVAIL!
There is NO MENTION in the Constitution that OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS COULD BE SUSPENDED due to CAMPING, CURFEWS, or CLEANLINESS! Why can we not gather and sleep under the stars in this, THE LAND OF THE FREE?
SHAME ON YOU, “OFFICERS OF THE PEACE”, who show up in FULL RIOT GEAR in the middle of the night for what reason? To attack peaceful, sleeping, defenders of the Constitution, who are dressed in Sweatshirts and Winter Jackets?
How is this Democracy? How is this Freedom? How is this defense of our rights?
KNOW THIS - You have taken this too far. You have stepped upon the sleeping snake. You cannot MAKE us stop or go away! We are bringing your system DOWN.
WE ARE THE 99%, WE ARE THE MAJORITY! WE WILL WIN, so start making plans for a new future, different than the one you have been trying to impose upon us.
Enjoy your fall…
Someday YOU may even become homeless, yourselves, you greedy, heartless fuckers.
