The Sacred and the Profane

Many apologies to those of you who have been waiting for me to put up more pictures and details of what I experienced yesterday.  I also wanted to thank all of you who helped fund my trip to NYC.  Your generosity is much appreciated.

However, it seems like yesterday took a lot more out of me than I had anticipated or I am coming down with something.  I had a little lunch and thought I’d just take a quick nap.  It lasted a lot longer than I thought and I still feel like I ran a marathon.  So, I hope you will bear with me a little bit longer and I’ll put the pics up tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, here’s a piece from Fantasia.  I wonder if the OWS organizers weren’t thinking of this when they planned their events…?

Occupy Atlanta Mic Checks Home Depot

Occupy Atlanta protests low wages, gender discrimination and union busting tactics at a Home Depot.  Those dirty f%^*ing hippies cleverly disguise themselves as regular people.

 

Can Walmart be far behind?  Remember all those women who filed a class action lawsuit and got told by the Supreme Court that they didn’t have a case because they didn’t have enough in common?

Oh, the possibilities are endless.  I see a whole nation full of mic checkers.  So easy to do.
