As hard as the establishment media and the corporate right is trying to deligitimize and discount the Occupy Wall Street movement (Occupy Together), it is gaining momentum and notoriety. It’s about time.

I say again that it’s worth remembering that the same approach has been taken by the right-wing establishment in its attempts to quash civil rights ever since the beginning of this country.

Moreover, it’s disingenuous for anyone to feign confusion as to the reason and motives for the growing Occupy Wall Street movement. We all know exactly why the protesters are there and what they want. They simply lack a neatly packaged corporate-written set of slogans (like the so-called “Tea Party” has), corporate sponsorship (like the so-called “Tea Party” has), and their own propaganda network (like the so-called “Tea Party” has in Fox “News”).

Here Jon Stewart does his thing: he satirizes the hypocricy of Fox “News”, the aristocratic right, and the establishment media.

  1. I am interested to know your candid thoughts on the “Occupy Wall Street/ Occupy Every Place” happenings. Necessary or absurd?

  2. It is also a weak attempt at competing with the Tea which I do not but can clearly see is light years above this group of modern day hippies who feel in the civil rights/peace of our time…

    1960s, 1970s

    In the United States, during the late 1970s, the deinstitutionalization of patients from state psychiatric hospitals was a precipitating factor which seeded the homeless population, especially in urban areas such as New York City.[26]

    The Community Mental Health Act of 1963 was a pre-disposing factor in setting the stage for homelessness in the United States.[27] Long term psychiatric patients were released from state hospitals into Single Room Occupancies and sent to community health centers for treatment and follow-up. It never quite worked out properly and this population largely was found living in the streets soon thereafter with no sustainable system.[28][29]

    In 1965, The Diggers, a community-action group dedicated to the concept of everything being free of charge, established soup kitchens and free health-care facilities in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.[30] This also began a movement of people that began to travel for political reasons as well as for personal choices. This is where the beginnings of the American nomadic caravans became popular, living homelessly, but happily.

    In 1969 the Pine Street Inn was founded by Paul Sullivan on Pine Street in Boston’s Chinatown district and began caring for homeless destitute alcoholics. In 1980, it moved to larger facilities on Harrison Avenue in Boston due to growing needs of the homeless population.[31][32]

    In 1974, Kip Tiernan founded Rosie’s Place in Boston, the first drop-in and emergency shelter for women in the United States, in response to the increasing numbers of needy women throughout the country.

    In 1979, a New York City lawyer, Hayes, brought a class action suit before the Callahan v. Carey, against the City and State, arguing for a person’s state constitutional “right to shelter”. It was settled as a consent decree in August 1981. The City and State agreed to provide board and shelter to all homeless men who met the need standard for welfare or who were homeless by other standards. By 1983 this right was extended to homeless women.
