Occupy America.

I’ve been away for awhile, contemplating Occupations,

“Johnny's in the basement mixing up the medicine
I'm on the pavement thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat, badge out, laid off
Says he's got a bad debt, wants to get it paid off.”

The multibillionaire Mayor of New York uses his private army, the NYPD, to stifle protests of his corruption, and our multimillionaire Mayor of Chicago (pre-corrupted by making millions in a couple of years as a wall street trader between gigs as a political operative) prepares new laws to thwart protesters at his party of worldwide one percenters this spring, the G8 summit. It should be obvious to all that a government owned by business interests is not a government of, by, or for the people.

They have not corrupted democracy in this country, nor have they thwarted it, or high-jacked it, or circumvented it. They have destroyed it, and intend to replace it with what, Rick Santorum’s Christian Taliban, Romney’s survival of the fittest free-market dystopia? Obama's Wall Street infected Treasury department isn't enough for them. They want it all, they want us all to serve them.
