Occupy Everywhere

A 47-post collection

A Poem - not mine.


When the shearing sheds are silent and the stock camps fallen quiet

When the gidgee coals no longer glow across the outback night

And the bush is forced to hang a sign, ‘Gone broke and won’t be back’

And spirits fear to find a way beyond the beaten track

When harvesters stand derelict upon the wind swept plains

And brave hearts pin their hopes no more on chance of loving rains

When a  hundred outback settlements are ghost towns overnight

When we’ve lost the drive and heart we had to once more see us right

When 'Pioneer’ means a stereo  and 'Digger’ some backhoe

And the  'Outback’ is behind the house. there’s nowhere else to go

And 'Anzac’ is a biscuit brand and probably foreign owned

And education really means brainwashed and neatly cloned

When you have to bake a loaf of bread to make a decent crust

And our heritage once enshrined in gold is crumbling to dust

And old folk pay their camping fees on land for which they fought

And fishing is a great escape; this is until you’re caught

When you see our kids with Yankee caps and resentment in their eyes

And the soaring crime and hopeless hearts are no longer a surprise

When the  name of RM Williams is a yuppie clothing brand

Not a product of our heritage that grew off the land

When offering a  hand makes people think you’ll amputate

And two dogs meeting in the  street is what you call a 'Mate’

When 'Political Correctness’ has replaced all common sense

When you’re forced to see it their way, there’s no sitting on the fence

Yes one day you might find yourself an outcast in this land

Perhaps your heart will tell you then, 'I should have made a stand’

Just go and ask the farmers that should remove all doubt

Then join the swelling ranks who say, “Don’t Sell Australia Out!”

Sometimes, I Dispair.

There are times when the human race amazes me. There are also times, like this morning, when I just want to leave the race and sit on the sidelines until all this unholy malarkey is good and over with.

People elected Obama in the hopes that he would be able to fix things. Then the people woke up and realised every last politician has been sold to corporations. Now we expect a politician [sold to the highest bidder] to fix things? Um.

Slogans From My Back-Brain

I keep thinking of things to chant, even though I’m currently unable to participate.

Stuff like this:

All day! All night! Occupy our rights!

We want (clap clap) us free (clap clap) to build a better e-con-o-me!

You had your fun! You got your bonus! Now pay us back! The banks owe us!

Yeah, the last one’s a little complicated for chanting and marching. It’s more of a last minute thing. I’ll doubtless think

Cherry Lollipop: I know this has been going around, but I want to reiterate


The pepper spray used at UC Davis was 0.7 rating. The normal formulation for police is 0.2. 0.7 is military-grade stuff. There are only two formulations more powerful. One is used in training exercises for the Marines. The other? Primarily intended for use on bears. You normally use pepper…

Open Source Freedom

I had one of those ideas that can only get better the more you share it, so I thought I’d throw this out there. I hereby give it free and clear to the world. Just please, if you implement it, keep it honest and transparent.

What is Open Source Freedom?

Open Source Freedom, or OSF, is an organisation and system by which citizens help other citizens help each other out of debt. Not for any kind of profit, but for

BREAKING: Jeniffer Fox, the 3 Month Pregnant women who was pepper sprayed at Occupy Seattle has miscarried.



“I was screaming, ‘I am pregnant, I am pregnant. Let me through. I am trying to get out.’” At that point, Fox continues, a Seattle police officer lifted his foot and it hit her in the stomach, and another officer pushed his bicycle into the crowd, again hitting Fox in the stomach.


Well fuck everything

And the reason the pro-life folks aren’t screaming about the violent police fetus murderers is….?

My thoughts on the morning of the 18/11

I live in Australia, so the 17th is still happening in the US as I write this. There’s plans currently in motion that will come to a close before this article ever reaches anyone else’s eyes.

I can’t help feeling that I’m watching an empire collapse.

All the signs are there. Demagoguery, fascism, numerous attempts to silence the increasingly pissed off masses and trained ditto heads claiming, in spite of all evidence to the

Excuse me?

This guy had an interesting rant. What it boils down to is: Do what you like, just don’t ruin Christmas.




You have corporate assholes quietly and insidiously ruining your kids’ future, and that’s fine, just so long as no-one yells about it during a fucking Santa Claus parade?

We’re not allowed to speak because someone made your kid cry? What?

I’d image macro this with Professor Farnsworth saying “I

There is a way out...

Congress signed into being a constitutional amendment that allowed the President to take complete control - dictatorship, if you will - without the approval of congress.

I think it’s Rule 52 or something of the ilk. I remember seeing it in the OWS-tagged entries via Tumblr.

The President needs to use that rule. Take command. And then tell the armies to arrest every last 1% douchebag currently in the United States. Seize their property, their wealth and use it to

Dear 1%

I know you like having it. Money. Power. Fame.

Everyone wants it. People usually want to earn it.

Most of you have inherited it. Or manipulated things so you can keep it.

There’s just one thing.

If you succeed in obtaining all the money - money then becomes worthless.

The majority, those “unwashed masses” you sneer and jeer at from your balconies as they struggle for a slice of justice beneath you… they’re going to

Reblog it.

Didn’t something like this happen in Egypt, recently? Didn’t something like that fail worse than the Titanic? Don’t these people remember what happened to the last douchebag who tried this?
