Van and Action Day Occupiers

from Time

Rabble Rouser ... there's a catch-phrase from the ages.
Synonym now-a-days for Community Organizer.

Daryl Peveto / LUCEO for TIME
Time this week, begins to reform the Van. Beginning with an evocative portrait.
Statesmanlike in every way. A soft and soapy recap of his Obama stint segues to his current activities.

Photographic proof that the community is being organized.

The Van asks ya to visit his Rebuild the Dream net. Goin' there, the question comes to mind. What exactly is the definition of a collective?

As of this post, the "Day of Action", 11/17/11, by the OWSers, I haven't seen Van on the net. The NYPD kept the 99% Horde from "occupying" the Exchange. We'll see about further action.

1% rag

No ... Not a Ragtime Rag.
That's for you 99%ers.
This rag, magazine, is for the 1%ers. Brought to ya by Hearst
The ones that have two lives. A town life. A country life.
With a periodical to help them juggle it all with grace and élan.

Rosamund Pike Cover Couture Jason Wu lace top $1885, blah, blah, blah
The 1%ers you see on tv? They're at work. Senate Hearings. Gala Events. Fundraisers. All so much piffle and pish posh. My guess is they can't wait to get home ... to the cabin. Slip into some casual Dior and muck about just like the little peeps.

This months articles of note;
  • The Rich and The Recession, what they can't afford anymore
  • HELP! 10 lifesaving tips from the worlds top butler
  • Oh, the Places You'll Go! A Light-Hearted Guide to Minimum Security Federal Prisons
If you're thinking of re-careering,  this ad popped out at me ...
Can you even imagine the difficulty of finding estate managers for Ted's Spreads?

A Brit years ago related to me ...
Ya know the difference between a Brit and a Yank? A Brit will see a Rolls Royce and say "someday we'll bring down the rich" and a Yank will say "someday I'll be rich and have one of those"

I'm not sure how wide-spread that aspirational spirit currently is.

I don't be hatin' on the 1%ers. It would be civil though, if we at least had the appearance of everybody having to play by the same rules. I'm certain the last thing the T&C set want is incivilities.

WRSA, Market Ticker;

Denninger is on strike.
Sounds kinda Greek to me.

It's good to be reminded of the wide-scale frauds and the abrogation of such quaint concepts like "rule-of-law".  I like the "Stop Lootin', Start Prosecuting".
It's the "commit no taxable event today" that I'm having trouble with.
Taxable Events planned today ...
  • using the water
  • using the phone
  • using the house/garage
  • using the internets
  • using the natural gas stove
All of which incur taxable events.
