Currently engaged in "Occupy My House". Still concerned about the potential for injury from concussion grenades and tear gas.

Having recently forcibly evicted con-artist type people from a rental, BEFORE the county sheriff showed up with the eviction notices.. my head spins in a certain direction here. WTF do you mean: "Occupy My House"?

I've decided my motto is: "Aspiring 1%r".

I just wanted a form of social protest I could do without urban camping during winter. Seems like since I have a nice warm house I could arrange to spend most of my time here, rather than in some park.

Of course I'll have to make some concessions, I won't be smashing any windows, probably not a whole lot of carrying signs, but it seems like it'll be about as effective a form of protest...

Actually, I think we alll should "Occupy My House", stay home instead of shopping and eschew buying crap we don't need from places we've never been. Abandoning the notion that only a growing "GDP" will save us from freezing in the streets, and pursuing only the material that we actually need (hint - if I have a 34" TV to display the available crap from cable and air, I don't actually "need" a 53" to replace it and accomplish the same thing, iven if it is thinner and prettier) and only the money needed to satisfy real needs may be the only to save this nation and renew its culture. Grover Norquist and all the politicians who toady to him want to "starve the beast" and destroy government. Maybe we need to "starve the beast" when it comes to Wal-Mart, etc.
