Hedges writes: "The next great battle of the Occupy movement may not take place in city parks and plazas, where the security and surveillance state is blocking protesters from setting up urban encampments."

Occupy Wall Street: Take the Bull by the Horns your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

I witnessed fracking in East Texas many years ago and it was an expensive, abject failure that was abandoned because of the polution it created. Fracking raises it ugly head during every rise in oil prices and plaintif cries for energy independence. The end product is poor quality, low octane and expensive for the environment.

If President Obama is rer-elected, (the best result of this sorry-ass election), we must immediately begin pressuring him to turn down the Keystone Pipeline. This will be difficult as it seems he is ready to o.k. this horrific project as soon as he ios elected.
