  • Busted? British Paper Reveals Some Wall St. Protesters Are Quite Privileged

    Well, now the British paper The Daily Mail is helping answer that question. The answer? Some of them seem to be quite privileged. “A closer look at some of the impassioned protesters is starting to suggest that while many of them have genuine grievances,” the Daily Mail writes, “all may not be completely as advertised. “ Here’s what it means: Among the hardcore of well-intentioned protesters sleeping rough in Zuccotti Park are also the children of the wealthiest ‘one per cent’ – taking a break from classes at private schools to show their solidarity… and join the fun. As millionaire...

    As the Occupy Wall Street protests grow “increasingly debauched,” Tea Partiers in Tennessee remind us what a polite, impassioned and principled protest looks like:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Hundreds of Gibson Guitar supporters rallied for the legendary guitar factory at a dual demonstration-concert in Nashville, Tenn. Saturday, following a federal raid in August over the company’s importation practices.The “We Stand With Gibson” rally drew about 500 attendees, including members of the Tea Party, according to the Tennessean.

    Errata Security ^ | 10/9/2012 | Robert David Graham
    I was unhappy with the poor journalistic coverage of the #OccupyWallStreet protests, so I went to Wall Street myself to see what’s going on, and report on it. It’s the quality of the coverage, not the amount that's the problem. It’s been on the nightly news every night for the past week, but there has been little “serious” reporting.

    WAKA ^ | 09 October 2011 | - Amanda McKenzie
    About 200 college students and others from Huntsville came down to the Capital City to raise awareness for the children that may be affected by the new law on illegal immigration now that it has taken effect. The National Association for the Prevention of Starvation is taking a stand against Alabama's law on illegal immigration. Students from Oakwood University in Huntsville said they wanted to represent those who are not able to represent themselves - the children. "We work with children in those communities and a lot of them are afraid," organizer Mia Pile said. "Many of them are American,...

    The San Gabriel Valley Dream Team gathered outside the C Building to spread its message in support of illegal immigrant students on Sept. 14. The main staircase held microphones, posters, and a small group of individuals with a mission. Every possible surface had their message displayed. Those involved proudly carried signs proclaiming "Stop Second Class Treatment." They also wore shirts bearing slogans such as "The Dream is Coming." Two larger posters sat on the staircase, proclaiming "Undocumented and Unafraid" and "We Will No Longer Remain in Shadows." Jonathon Perez described the San Gabriel Valley Dream Team as a youth group...

    Lazy Saturday morning this week. Best things going is the we once again out numbered the moonbats, 7-5, and Lurker Bill’s music (BELOW). If you have been at Walter Reed the last 2 years or so, you would have heard his combo of patriotic songs, service melodies, Barry Sadler’s Ballad of the Green Berets, big band music and what I call jungle music. Of course I also like Robert Horton’s Sink the Bismarck and original version of Battle of New Orleans. Check out the 1959 black ‘n white video. Jeez, just keep finding them. Here’s Jimmy Dean’s Big Bad JohnLots...

    Risking deportation to Mexico in order to protest U.S. immigration law was worth it for Martin Rodriguez, an honors high school graduate from Yadkin County who was raised in the United States but is not authorized to live here. "I think we got the message out to other undocumented students that there is no need to fear because we are not criminals. We're human beings," Rodriguez said Thursday, the morning after he got out of a Mecklenburg County jail. Rodriguez is one of 15 people arrested during a sit-in rally Tuesday in Charlotte. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers charged most of them...

Nearly 200 people met on CPCC's central campus for a 1 p.m. "coming out" rally in which some protesters publicly announced they're living in the country illegally. The group then marched around the school toward the intersection of Kings Drive and Fourth Street. The large group proceeded to block all four directions of traffic while...

Neither of the dinosaur parties were much in evidence as the nation’s two new emergent parties did battle for the heart of America.Green or Tea, which shall it be?The catalyst that triggered this political firefight was the arrival in Napa of the Tea Party Express buses; Saturday, August 27 was the day the media-savvy group kicked off its coast-to-coast Reclaiming America Tour, culminating on September 12 in Tampa, Florida, at the CNN/Tea Party Express...

    Shortly after 6 am Saturday morning, and less than 9 hours after our last Friday night at Walter Reed, the first members of the DC Chapter of Free Republic began to arrive at the gates where the ambulances would depart Walter Reed. Between Silver Spring, MD and Bethesda, Montgomery County, MD police cars were already at every intersection to ensure a non-stop passage for each ambulance to the newly named Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda. By 6:30 am, the banners and signs were ready for the first of 18 ambulances. A food court, courtesy of the Trooprally’s...

    We knew it was coming and planned for it. For six years and four months of consecutive Friday evenings, the DC Chapter of Free Republic, other groups and individuals successfully challenged Code Pink and their union pawns in front of Walter Reed. After several months, they were forced from the Walter Reed front gates to a location 50 yards down Georgia Ave. Since June 2005, many Americans have gathered on Friday nights to continue to keep the anti-military forces away and to show support to the wounded warriors and their families. Tonight, then, was different from all others. Walter...
