Did Obama ignore #OWS in State of the Union?

President Obama delivered his State of the Union address which kept everyone in the room on their feet. Obama touched on many major issues from economic fairness to no bailouts and claimed himself a defender of middle-class America. Many Occupy Wall Street protesters don’t feel Obama is a real defender of the middle-class and believe his words had no merit. So is there substance behind the words?

Dear Mr President (This is Why We’re Here)

The Occupy Movement has sparked many artist to express their support for the Occupy Movement through music. The latest is Gabriel Quinn Andreas of Occupy Santa Barbara.

Andreas sings……..

“We gave you a fair chance, and this is how it went. Signed sincerely yours, The Other Ninety-Nine Percent.”

A protest song for the Occupy movement.

Dear Mr. President, this is why we’re here.
Allow us to explain, though it is probably clear:

Dear Mr. President, this is what we wanted.
To build homes, not bomb them but we
clearly can’t do it with all the drama in congress.
Like it’s all about your image, not doing what’s right.
Like it’s beers with the boys and we won’t even ask what you get up to in the white house at night.

We have assembled to plead the case
of people with troubles you tried to erase. You took an oath
to serve, were your fingers crossed when you said the words,
or was the meaning lost?

A patriot would put the brakes on this.
A patriot would not manipulate the populace.
A true patriot would never split the wax from the wick.
Apparently patriotism and politics don’t mix.

Dear Mr. President, this is why we’re here.
In good conscience we can’t let this go another year.
Unstuck from the corrupted order,
The people, that’s US, can no longer afford to
WAIT.

True Patriots sleep on streets
or in cells, a patriot’s spirit can never be held.
True patriotism is impossible to defeat –
ideas are invincible, they can’t be killed.

[chorus]
Of everything we needed done
you barely made a dent.
Of all your empty promises
was there even ONE you meant?

We gave you a fair chance
and this is how it went.
Signed,
Sincerely yours,

The Other Ninety-Nine Percent.

You drive us to the danger zone
and pretend to act surprised
while it’s clear you’ve spent the
last few years rolling your eyes.
Slavery is subsidized, freedom is a hoax, and you must have missed
that your list of laws is just a joke.

So here’s what’s gotta happen-
you’ve gotta see things from our side.
We tried to do things your way,
but that paradigm has died.

We stand before you peaceably
and are here to stay.
until you change.

And we say:

[chorus]

Super Committee’s 13th Member: Occupy Wall Street?

Former Bush speechwriter, Mark Thiessen, is blaming Occupy Wall Street for the Super Committee’s failure. He has a point, yet at the same time, is completely wrong.

Newt Gingrich to #OWS:”Take a Bath and Get a Job” – Me to Newt: “Brush Your teeth, there’s BullShit in your mouth!”

It’s amazing to me, that the American public would even consider  a man like Newt Gingrich for public office, much less for the Presidency of the United States.  His recent surge in the polls is obviously aided and/or manufactured by the media, and he is just the latest GOP turd (candidate) to float to the top of the political toilet bowl.  But Newt has outdone himself this time. During a recent debate with Herman Cain, Gingrich let out a well-practiced diatribe against The Occupy Wall Street Movement in which he tells the protestors to “Get a job right after you take a Bath” Check Out the video of this classically clueless GOP front-runners moment below……..

Last time I checked, Mr. Gingrich was running for President of The United States of America, which includes EVERY AMERICAN, not just the 1%.   If he seriously wants to be elected president of just the rich and influential, then he should enter a different race altogether.  America is not just for the “haves” or “have-nots”, but it’s greatest strength comes from the totality of the population and not just 1 individual or class.  Newt Gingrich represents everything that is wrong with America, it’s corruption, cronyism, lack of compassion, and most of all, it’s apathy, the very things that #OWS are protesting against. No wonder he felt the need to attack the movement……..but Thanks Newt, for telling us we need a bath, and employment.  Here’s a tip for you…. You should Brush your teeth more often, because the Bullshit coming out of your mouth, is starting to leave a stain.
