Occupy Suggestion

The American public is once again being victimized by the Oil industry.  They are getting ready to rake in wind fall profits of an enormous magnitude as they artificially jack up prices.  While they are doing this they are funding super pacs that will blame President Obama for the rising prices while at the same time funding oil and gas mascot candidates running for congress.  How do they get away with this?  It is because they are faceless.

So my suggestion to the agenda of the Occupy movement, when they regroup for warm weather, is to stake out the homes and mansions of every oil company CEO and Vice President.  Camp out in the street and legally picket these folks to put a face on them.  Start identifying them on websites and social media as the greedy corporate icons that they are.  Right now they get away with victimizing all of us because no one can identify them.  At least they might have to suffer some inconvenience and shame for their callousness if we pay some attention to them.

Excellent idea. A different way to approach the problem. I put it out there in the Occupy Facebook community.

Faceless, maybe. Nameless, certainly not.

“I think it would be a huge mistake on the part of the president of the United States to deny the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline,” American Petroleum Institute CEO Jack Gerard said during the powerful oil industry trade association’s annual “State of American Energy” event Wednesday.

“Clearly, the Keystone XL pipeline is in the national interest. A determination to decide anything less than that I believe will have huge political consequences.”

Yeah. That will bring prices down....NOT!

Anonymous' comment is a sad but sadly accurate comment on the American state of mind.

Yes, it's an indication of how powerless people feel, but people have their heads so far up their rear ends they've forgot that they do have power, untold amounts of it. You have it, you know you have it, and you know you can exercise it through the political system or outside it. But you choose your TV, your car, your house, getting your ducks lined up in a row, your consumer goods that keep you satiated. It's your fault. You are to blame.

It's as simple as this. Bend over and grab your ankles, or turn around and say, No, you bend over for a change.

Also, Anonymous apparently has never had people picketing outside his house 24 hours a day.

Also, before the French Revolution, most French people saw King Louis as having the kind of power Anonymous thinks the oil executives have. King Louis probably did, too, until the guillotine came down and his head fell into a basket.
