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.

Cap and Trade is a flawed proposal

Energy prices are on the rise. Families, homeowners, and businesses are feeling the pain every time they pay their electric bills or fill up at the pump. The cap and trade, or cap and tax, energy plan, introduced by the Obama Administration and Democratic leadership in Congress, will only make matters worse. This energy plan raises taxes, leads to more
government intrusion, and leads to the unprecedented loss of American jobs.

Power Outage

"Ohio lost out on new jobs from a steel company [last] Thursday. A $1 billion dollar investment that went elsewhere because of Ohio’s unpredictable cost of electricity prices. And you should be mad.
