Just had to share this!

‎"I want you, each and every one of you, to have a reason to
be outraged. This is precious. When something outrages you,
as Nazism did me, that is when you become a militant, strong
and engaged. You join the movement of history, and the great
current of history continues to flow only thanks to each and
every one of us. History's direction is toward more justice and
more freedom—though not the unbridled freedom of the fox in
a henhouse. The rights set forth in the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights in 1948 are indeed universal. When you encounter
someone who lacks those rights, have sympathy and help him
or her to achieve them." from the book Indignez Vous - Time 
for Outrage by Stephane Hessel 

Search out a copy either in your local library or book seller or
you can do what I did and just google it using a phrase from
above, just making sure you bracket it with quotation marks " .
I could provide you with a link...but that would be too easy :)

Happy Monday morning!!!

Ok...I admit I am way toooooo occupied with this occupy thing. But as I see it, things are broken, very broken. It would be easy to find some distraction - a video game, the NFL/NBA/NHL/NCAA, some mindless reality tv, thousands of diversions to choose from but it's my view that we are at a tipping point, to where each of should be saying enough is's time for change..NOW!!! Maybe this is a great place to start -

November 5th - Bank Transfer Day

I've been a bit absent lately...been playing catch up after being gone for the past 10 days. For those that put up a tent today...would love to see pictures. Since today is November 5th, be sure to close that account at Chase/BOA/WellFargo/Citigroup and open at a credit union or local owned and operated bank!!! - Here is a helpful link, just enter your zip -

Bank of America reascends $5 bank fee

Just heard that Bank of America just backed off the five dollar monthly
atm fee that they were going to charge. Good for them, one bank
that listens to their customers. But that gives you no reason
to close your account and move to a local credit union. Want
to own your own bank and get all the benefits of doing so?
Close your exiting account with Chase, BOA, Wells-Farggo
account and move to a local credit union. You'll be glad you
did.. I am.
Here is a little help -

Happy Haloween....NOMT - the next phase

I see that we continue to have people being added to the list of attendees...that's awesome. So for now, if you'd like to show your solidarity for the OWS movement, continue to pitch your tent on Saturday. Better yet, I might suggest finding a good 8x10 plastic tarp, a couple of poles, 20 feet of rope, dozen or so tent stakes and fashion yourself a makeshift tent and just leave it in your front yard, along with a couple of signs. My guess is, you may even have all this stuff sitting around in the corner of the garage. Worse case scenario you might have to spend 10 to 20 bucks at the local dollar store.

With my less that artistic ability, I've drawn a picture

To me, and I'm sure many others, tents seem to be a symbolic representation of the Occupy Wall Street movement....Comments anyone?

Growing...A Million Tenters in Sight

T minus 3 and counting. Yesterday I spent an hour posting on Facebook Occupy Sites around the world about the Night of a Million Tents and it looks like word got out as the numbers continue to climb, but with only 266 attendees, but it seems that I've missed the other 0.999999962 of the population :) this rate it will take 72 years to reach 1,000,000 but I'm still holding out. For those that are reading this - please send this link to as many people as you can and we can still make a great showing. -

Good morning...a new day, a new total. Though I'm far from a million committed attendees, like 999,790 short, it's still great to see each new person sign on. It was my hopes that facebook would be enough to spread the word, seeing that there are 600,000,000 users. I still continue to post in various places, still looking for that one big break...maybe today :) Funny thing is, I'm not sure anyone ever reads this, If so..maybe just click like button. Oh, and if anyone (or any two), can erect a tent, place a protest sign by it, snap a picture and post that would be great.

If anyone has any ideas on how to get the word out about Night of a Million Tents, I'm all ears.
This has been a great education for me. Please post your comments here..

23-Oct 9:39 PM
Here are the running totals from yesterday
Attendees - 197 6.07%

Great brainstorming session last night

Last night 4 of us met online using facebook group chat and traded ideas. One of the revelations for me was how twitter could be used to get the word out about the "Night of a Million Tents". Now all I have to do is figure this all out in the next day or so.
As far as how the effort is going, we continue to add new attendees to the facebook Night of a Million Tents event, but still are a long way from a million. Who knew it would take so much time. But it's been a great learning lesson for me.
Upwards and onward!!!

Want to thank Annie, Jim and Jacob for participating last night. With their ideas and efforts, we will be able to attract a wider audience
Till next time!

Spent the evening posting on various Occupy websites from around the world. Night of Million Campers now up to 120. Not bad for the first full day. If this is going to be noticed by main stream media, it's imperative that we get as many people on board as possible...any suggestion on promoting?
