I try to avoid politics on this show as much as possible, but when it directly relates to a "Survival/Preparedness Issue" it is difficult to do so. Much is being written about the "Occupy Wall Street" movement at present so I don't need to repeat it all here. What I will say is this appears to me to be little more than an orchestrated action from the White House, Moveon.org, various Unions, and groups ranging from Communists to others of the leftist ilk. While perhaps sounding a bit nutty even to myself at this point, it seems to me that this campaign could be an actual strategic part of the 2012 Campaign planned months in advance as an effort to drastically change the current political dynamic (there needs to be something to distract attention from the economy and even more bad news, right?). Now, none of this is to say that I don't think that maybe they have legitimate concerns, and the truth is I agree with some of their points. At the same time, they seem to be setting themselves up to be used by people in positions of power as their use of White House talking points seems to demonstrate.
What is worrisome is how easily and quickly this could spin out of control. If you live in a major city that could be affected by these developments I highly suggest you keep a close eye on this with past events (WTO Riots in Seattle, Watts Riots, Rodney King riots, 1960s unrest, etc.) in mind.
For some reason this all makes me think back to last March and this article from Blaze.com: The Left’s Economic Terrorism Playbook: The Chase Campaign by a Coalition of Unions, Community Groups, Lawmakers and Students to Take Down US Capitalism and Redistribute Wealth & Power
