Occupy Toledo Day 2

I was at tonight's assembly, one of about 35 who are still comitted to the cause. There are links for pics at the end of this report.
I was only able to stay for a short time but while I was there we discussed asking for a permit from the city to pitch tents, get electricity, lights, and set up info tables.
I found it funny that someone referred to getting "free electricity". I don't know where free electricity comes from if any of you do please let me know. The crowd was not very animated, some people not even bothering to do tickle fingers when agreeing with what was said.
The guy who locked himself in his foreclosed home in Stony Ridge read the proposal that's been readied for the city. Sorry I can't remember his name.
I did get a nice tweet as I was leaving from @occupytoledo thanking me for stopping by.

Fred, serious question: Before you attended this sort of event, did you divest your portfolio?

Serious answer, No.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Oh, so you kept your filthy blood lucre in the same system you're allegedly protesting.

... how interesting.

Fred, can you even SPELL the word "hypocrite"? Do you know what it means?

How about a second, serious question for you? Here:

"Are you aware that Wall Street is in New York City, not Toledo, and no financial elite worth speaking of are anywhere in or near Toledo?"

Wait, I've got a third, serious question, which probably over-rides the first two. Here goes:

"Fred, did you ever fucking GROW UP?!?!"

I was not there to protest anything Guest, I was there to observe, take pictures and video, and report on it. .

Fred did you ever think that those that you took pictures of and made fun of could have been there to observe and take pictures of you?

Paul, I haven't made fun of anyone yet. The videos and pics speak for themselves. And no that thought didn't cross my mind because I thought they were there to work for change in the way our system operates. One of the tenets in thier "safer space" policy is to "respect people's opinions, beliefs, differing states of being and differing points of view so I doubt they would be concerned with taking pictures of me and making fun of me, unless of course you are saying that you don't believe them.

Fred his name is Keith Sadler. Remember he was evicted from his Stoney Ridge home in protest while your boss Brian Wilson was calling him a deadbeat. Ironically at the same time Brian's Moss Creek home was also foreclosed. So who was the deadbeat? Will the gullible WBSPD listener believe that swamp gas was the culprit for his fleeing the area? We will never know the truth!

We all know that you were called on the carpet for spewing your lies and had to apologize for being yourself. A lying bag of hot air.

Better keep your trap shut about B Wilson or you might find yourself losing in court again.

It makes everyone laugh at you to know that B Wilson bent you over and made you his little bitch.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

So who was the deadbeat?

Answer: Both Sadler and Wilson were deadbeats. Both signed mortgages and later defaulted. And both got booted out the houses that they refused to pay for. It's too bad that Wilson played the shifty game and arranged another mortgage before defaulting on the first one. Just for those who don't know, that's called "strategic defaulting".

I guess that sounds more palatable to the public than "fraud". That's what we would have called it in the old days, when we had actual lending standards and law enforcement and all that dross that we've long given up on due to being a perceived impediment against "financial innovation" (old term: "fraud", again). Our national and quasi-worldwide finance industry is rife with nothing BUT fraud. It's hard to find a market participant (buyer, seller, appraiser, realtor, mortgage broker, lender, securities investor, regulator, news reporter, politician) that wasn't part of the same system of extensive fraud.

That's why I'm very glad to see all these foreclosures and bankruptcies, and that's why I'm looking forward to laughing at more of the fools as they keep falling into those results for the next decade. The revocation of parts of Glass-Steagall was only the beginning, but it was a key part of why the system became so completely fraudulent from the top to the bottom. Combined with the LTCM bailout, the revocation of key parts of Glass-Steagall sent a clear signal to the banking industry that fraud was not only encouraged, but also would not be punished when the time of reckoning arrived.

The days of throwing bankers in jail (as happened in the S&L scandal) are over, and will never happen again. Our economy has moved on from even the excesses of a Bribe-ocracy, into an outright Bailout economy, where corporate elements will gain government support at many levels, forming corporate socialism, but the common man will have to suffer under a so-called free market which is in fact extremely predatory and assaults him mercilessly and tirelessly.

The only way to fight back, now, is to divest and avoid. Too bad we have too many Freds in the world. But maybe once these Freds of the world keep losing, they will slowly wake up and in singles and in small groups, move away from supporting government and corporate socialism... and the accumulative power of our small numbers will become felt at last.

I saw it in the paper the other day but just couldn't recall it at all, thanks Paul.
