Are We Poland Yet?

Occupy Oakland was shut down by the police in action involving smoke, tear gas, flash grenades, handcuffs and arrests. Their response was to issue a call for a General Strike on November 2nd to “shut down the 1%.”

Now we are talking. Is there a Lech Walesa in the house?

For the first time, I am beginning to think that this “Occupy” thing might actually work. “Hey, we tried talking nice, now we’re going to make it hurt.” And that is what it will take. You think the rich care about a bunch of people camping in their public or private parks making some noise? Do they even care if those people are, as Oakland claimed, pooping and procreating in that public park? They do not.

When the communist government of Poland fell, the Iron Curtain countries came down like dominos. And what brought down Poland’s government? Lech Walesa’s general strike. We don’t have any factories left for workers to shut down, but we can prevent trucks from leaving the shipyard, and bookkeepers can shut down the computers.

Man the ramparts, people. Don’t tax the 1%, bring them down.
