The DAY BEFORE a protest action starts in NYC Bloomberg turns into Chicken Little
Occupy Wall Street is set to roll tomorrow from Battery Park.

And all of a sudden everyone is screaming about the *coming riots*.....

I certainly hope we aren't seeing a valid protest being set up by politicians and the complicit media.

It just doesn't smell right. Bloomberg probably has knowledge of what is coming, this has been planned for weeks....

1. And they have a perfected "storm" model on moving large masses of people
and shutting down public transit. Hmmm. Was the mass storm hysteria just a practice run?

2. I really don't want to be so tinfoily -- but I do worry about the protesters

And it just goes to show how much DISTRUST our *public servants* has brought on themselves with their cronyism and double-dealing ways.

5. Wall Street is used to protests.
And you should see the nutty security they have on that street for ordinary days.

I really don't appreciate hysteria coming from either side.

6. Being worried
for others and self is not most helpfull strategy. It is very human and understandable, but what matters is how we feel and act in compassion and courage.

4. Oh, good freaking grief.
You know what we do when mass transit shuts down? WE WALK.

You can do that in NYC.

Tourists.

7. Uh, moving people who are willing and moving people who are unwilling....
NOT comparable models. Not even close.

But do try and shift 8 million people who don't wanna.

3. Of course
The more you are possessed by your possessions, the more you fear being liberated from being possessed. Fearfull people acting from fear act stupidly. We can face our fears, we shall overcome and act with wisdom and love.

8. It helps to understand
that the occupiers are playing win-win game, while banksters are playing lose-lose game. :)
