Occupy This, Occupy That
Yet another new Fellow Motherfucker has been added this august electronic press' sidebar. Barely Awake In Frog Pyjamas. He may not even be a Fellow Motherfucker but I figure any grown man who wears Montreal Canadien pyjamas around the house is some kind of a motherfucker.
I do not even want to get started adding Occupy This or That or the Other Fucking Thing to the sidebar. Frequent reader and retired bus driver extraordinaire Jon attended Santa Rosa's Occupy yesterday which got me to ask my computer just what went down in that little northern California race track town. I suggest you try this search technique yourself. Stick the name of any dumbshit American town you can think of and the word Occupy into the search engine of your choice.
There is something happening down there.
Santa Rosa has a population just a little larger than my town yet thousands of its residents turned out for the spark of its rebellion against the twin cancers of governments that do not give a shit and the chummy club capitalism has become. Nothing happened in my town, that is why I travelled, at great personal risk, into Dope City yesterday. Perhaps my town's apathy will change in the future.
Again - There is something happening in America. Might just be something bigger than the Super Bowl.
