Video Occupy Fresno 15OCT11
Occupy Fresno rally at Courthouse Park, Saturday 15OCT11 was fun and educational. The Raging Grannies sang Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" and provided a welcome focus to the event. I saw some Truthers there with a giant banner that said "Building 7", you know the one across from the Twin Towers that came down, as they say, by pre-planned detonation. There's always some Grand Conspiracy that's keeping us back. Then there was a guy handing out pages about the evils of the Federal Reserve Bank, one of the fave topics of Libertarians and others on the far right. I mentioned to an old gent in an electric wheelchair that trying to get Liberals all together was like herding cats. He reminded me that the Right is similarly divided. But, I don't think Peace Activists go to Tea Party rallies to siphon off stragglers. The Right-Wingers who were there reminded me of wolves following the herd looking for an ignorant or confused one to indoctrinate. I don't think the Occupy Wall Street movement will produce a Congressional Delegation in 2012 the way the Tea Party did in 2010. But, it would be nice if they did.
