Where do the occupiers come from? According to the press, most of us seem to be drug addicts, petty criminals, the unemployed and young. Of course, according to the press, some of us are good people. Anyway, click the link below to see who they are. Many thanks to Shawn Sorensen for bring this to my attention.

Former U.S. congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) appeared on Countdown Monday evening to discuss how an audit of the Federal Reserve revealed the private bank giving $26 trillion to U.S and foreign banks without Congress’ authorization.
“For the first time in history, I’m talking the 100 year history of the Federal Reserve, they played favorites,” Grayson told host Keith Olbermann. “They said we’ll give a hundred billion to this institution, another hundred billion to this institution, and so on down the line, when you and I couldn’t even come close to accessing that kind of money of those terms.”
There is something Grayson doesn’t mention in the link below. Goldman Sacs received billions of dollars in loans from the Fed at 0.001 percent interest. Then Goldman lent the money back to the federal government at a much higher interest rate. Shortly after that, Goldman reported record earnings for its rich investors and CEOs thanks to this scam. In other words, the Fed was the architect of a scam to redistribute income from working Americans to rich investors. That’s because the government pays the interest on its debt out of the money it takes in the form of taxes. Some of that tax money went to the rich investors of Goldman Sacs because they’d borrowed cheap and lent it back at the higher rate. This was another corporate/rich person welfare scam engineered by the Federal Reserve and your government looked the other way. Once again the affluent were too rich to be allowed to look stupid in their failure. So the government bailed them out. (John Hively)
Before he died, Joaquin Luna put on his best suit, white shirt and black skinny tie, the same outfit he wore every Sunday without fail to the Pan de Vida church in his home town of Mission, Texas. As his brother put it: “He dressed himself to go to God.”
Then he shot himself in the shower room, leaving behind a note that explained why he ended such a promising life. He spoke of his desperation at what he felt to be the wall blocking out his future and preventing him from attaining his dreams.
