Call Me Crazy, But Why Extend ‘Occupy D.C.’s’ Permit For 4 More Months?

Who’s behind this brilliant decision? Protestors of the The Occupy Wall Street’s Washington D.C. version, Monday refused to leave when their permit expired. “Freedom Plaza” as it’s known comes under the purview of the Interior Department and National Park Service.

What would Steve Jobs do? Don't they all own iPhones?

According to, the US Park Police exists to “support and further the mission and goals of the Department of the Interior and the National Park Service by providing law enforcement to safeguard lives, protect our national treasures and symbols of democracy, and preserve the natural and cultural resources entrusted to them.” But protest organizers at Freedom Plaza, already littered with trash and protest paraphernalia, have said,

“Freedom Plaza is now ours, & we’re never giving it back.”

They crow at having disrupted the National Security Agency and an Army Association convention, and shutting down a Columbus Day celebration. Gee this sounds just like the Tea Party doesn’t it? NOT EVEN!

Though the occupiers are a morphing group of people (now joined by unions, hired thugs, Roseanne Barr and Michael Moore -to name a few), with barely a coherent thought, according to they do have a list of demands, not to be mistaken for the Communist Manifesto.

Gee, the same symbol used by Che Guevara, Wall St. occupiers & striking teachers

1)  Restoration of the living wage
2)  Institute a universal single payer healthcare system
3)  Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment
4)  Free college education
5)  A fast track process to end the fossil fuel economy and bring alternative energy economy up to energy demand
6)  One trillion dollars in infrastructure spending now
7)  One trillion dollars in ecological restoration and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants
8)  Racial and gender equal rights amendment
9)  Open borders migration -anyone can travel anywhere to work and live
10) Bring American elections up to international standards
11) Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all
12) Outlaw all credit reporting agencies
13) Allow all workers to sign a ballot any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union

Oh yeah, I can see this working. Let’s all get started!

Aloha, Mikie
