Not Picking On Oakland

29 Jan

It’s just the city that was in the news yesterday when I sat down to make the post.  The overreaction to the occupy movement by law enforcement agencies has been universal and simply underscores the trepidation… even outright fear… with which Wall Street views these demonstrations and movements.

Listen to Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant” for a letter perfect definition of what constitutes a movement.  What we’re seeing today is the modern day equivalent of singing a few bars of Alice’s Restaurant and the Wall Street leeches are terrified.

The point is not how good a town Oakland is or isn’t… but that the same municipal and state governments who couldn’t and still can’t protect us from honest to dog criminals can damned sure find the means and the financial wherewithal to protect Wall Street from us and I simply find that Ironic.
