Guy Fawkes got the Día De Los Muertos treatment this evening, Occupy Style. The Santa Ana contingent of Occupy Orange County held a march honoring the holiday. More than 20 activists lined up at the civic center to have their faces painted by Bowers Kidseum volunteers Barbara Spiess and Sandra Cardenas, whose designs featured Mexican folk art renditions of Guy Fawkes à la V for Vendetta

Around 7:30 p.m. the group made its way down Broadway carrying candles and signs while forgoing loud chants in recognition of the holiday.

Protesters slowly jostled through throngs of holiday revelers handing out flyers along the way. The processional stopped at the at the Downtown Art Walk in front of a large fountain where it broke its silence with loud chanting followed by a reading of the Occupy Wall Street Declaration. 
 
Monday the group will go before the Santa Ana City Council to request permission to camp at the civic center. Council members Michele Martinez and David Benavides have placed the item on Monday's agenda. According to activist Alicia Rojas, councilman Benavides visited Santa Ana occupiers on Friday expressing his support for the movement.

WE ARE THE 99%. We are OCCUPY OC. WE ARE STRONG. WE WILL LAST....

WE OCCUPY.

Until it rains and gets cold, then we go back to our suburban subdivision in Brea, where we practice commercial law, defending builders and business' that we claim to hate.

Call us hypocrites, but thats why we live in Brea, and you folks live in places like Santa Ana.

OP- I'm glad you can express your moniker ridden and non-rational dogma and rationale anonymously in the OC Weekly- they actually keep comments like yours up for other of your kind to "like" or repeat.  Obviously it's Saturday and obviously something was on special in the Liquor and Spirits maze in your local market. You sound like the Ultimate Warrior Bro- stop it

THE FLEA PARTY ---- OHBUMMER'S "WALL STREET OCCUPIERS" AND OTHER OHBUMMER STREET GANGS

A couple of months ago I began referring to OhBummer as a pathological flea, inasmuch as the majority of Americans see him as a bloodsucking fraud and a dishonest propagandist.

About a week ago I bumped into a blog comment referring to the Occupy Wall Street gang as "the flea party" and I warned the author that I would STEAL his ingenious reference and use it wherever it could inflict the most damage on the enemies of the American taxpayers.

More recently still, my favorite columnist, Ann Coulter [she a Christian and myself an atheist], published a column entitled "WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!" at her anncoulterdotorg website.

Clearly, things have gotten out of hand. This prairie fire of flea-mongers is raging out of control, wherever you turn. ~:<)

It's a lot more people than just "the rich" who despise OhBummer and his rioting foot soldiers.The Fleabaggers in OhBummer's Flea Party [Occupy Wall Street and its metastasized little cancers in other cities] are the ideological blackshirts, brownshirts, redshirts and no-shirt thugs tasked and directed in their riots by OhBummer allies Michael Moore, David Astroturf Axelrod, and Van Jones, by MoveOn.org, the SEIU, the Huffington Post, and OhBummer's former employer, ACORN --- and, naturally --- by Barak Hussein Hushpuppy Hoover OhBummer, himself --- with a cameo appearance by dopehead rugmuncher Roseanne Barr-The-Beheader.

Oh, the corporations! Oh, the banks!  Oh, BOO HOO! Most of these demonstrators and rioters have a wind-up key sticking out of the middle of their backs with OhBummer's fingerprints all over it. He pooped all over their brains and they LOVED it, crying, "Oh! Oh! More poo, please! More poo!"This so-called "spontaneous, leaderless civil unrest" is a White House operation, conceived in the bowels of Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer's fetid little mind --- while he sat ruminating in the bowels of the White House --- and enacted by OhBummer's chosen proxies, surrogates, cronies, and confederates.

OhBummer and the OhBummer Wrecking Crew have been promoting envy [mental illness] and trying to shift blame to "Greedy Wall Street" and away from themselves --- they who are what novelist Ayn Rand called "greedy for the unearned."

I advocate that the police arrest every one of OhBummer's rioting troops who obstructs traffic or trespasses on private property or in any way threatens or attempts to intimidate any of their critics or their intended victims.

Yes. These are the lying, arrogant, GREEDY-FOR-THE-UNEARNED, bloodsxcking, tax-eating Democrat hoods, thugs, and gangsters. I advocate and I seek their destruction.

There are still approximately 120 million privately-employed nongovernment taxpayers in America today, and while this pathological flea, Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, and his minions, are promoting street riots, I advocate that all 120 million of these privately-employed taxpayers stage a riot on the bridge of OhBummer's nose. That skunk wants race riots and class-warfare riots --- and he should get a riot that will make history.

$ $ $ $ $

Meanwhile, back at the hacienda.... In 2008, the top 1% of earners paid more than 38% of all Federal income taxes. Check this out at ntudotorg, "who pays income taxes."

And so to the President of the United States of America and to the so-called "99-percenters" in OhBummer's street-gang Fleabaggers who claim victimhood --- go blow smoke up your own axxes.

SPARKS FROM WYATT’S TORCH

Conservatives and libertarians should stop calling Democrats "liberals" ---- because they are helping the Democrats with this label --- not hurting them.

While many Democrats and other leftists agitate in favor of socialism or communism [distinctions without a difference], the majority of them prefer the Nazi / fascist economic model --- which works out in practical terms to the "crony capitalist progressivism" now practiced by Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, the OhBummer Wrecking Crew, the Democrat party at-large, and the “establishment” / "RINO" [Republican-In-Name-Only] Republicans.

Keep in mind here that Hitler and Mussolini launched their political careers as Marxist communists and later they adopted political disguise for their agenda of moral cannibalism and “eating the rich.” Does this sound familiar, given who now controls the White House and the Senate?

Note that progressivism, socialism, Nazism [“national socialism”], fascism and communism are all joined-at-the-hip in their common contempt, enmity, and disdain for human rights. More on this, later.

The Democrat [and other leftist] technique for character assassination is what it has always been --- a barrage of outright lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, innuendos, misinformation, disinformation, and poisonous propaganda --- all of that directed at anyone who obstructs their access to our wallets and our other property --- and especially any public figure who rises to fight them with any prospect of beating them and liberating the American people from the Democrats' kleptocracy.

In the past thirty years or so, from Ronald Reagan going forward, the technique has been to try and destroy anyone before they rose within striking distance of the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the White House.

These Democrat propagandists could and can count on the corrupt, compliant, Democrat-captured media to help keep their propaganda afloat and their dictatorship fastened on the backs of the American people.

Listen up, if you are a privately-employed, non-government taxpayer --- and thus a member of America’s # 1 class of victims.

We are ruled by armed force and by fraud by lying, thieving, arrogant, bloodsucking, greedy-for-the-unearned, tax-eating government hoodlums, gangsters, and thugs, by spies, spooks, and snoops, and by their sticky-fingered constituents and assorted limpets, lampreys, barnacles, parasites, and other hangers-on.

And they are our “protectors!”  Just ask them and this predatory humanitarian Mafia will tell you so. 

Who protects us from our protectors?  The First and Second Amendments to the US Constitution are there so that you can protect yourself from them.

---------------------------------------------------------

Now, are you ready for this?

What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary! And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad  joke!

But the Democrats believe in "statism" --- not "liberalism."

Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold their ugliness.

They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology ---- we say "the government" here in the USA ---- rather than "the state." And that's a dangerous problem.

Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, progressivism, and welfare statism ---- these last two are mixtures of fascism and socialism.

Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government ---- it is a constabulary ---- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction.

What "human rights?"

I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

A slave is owned by someone other than himself --- but a free man owns himself.

The first article of private property is "the self" --- and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights.

These rights ---- The Rights of Man ---- are the gift of nature or of nature's god ---- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words.

The words "liberal" and "liberalism" were hijacked by the Democrats, socialists, progressives, and fascists, long ago ---- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.

It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners ---- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.

Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity!

Declare yourselves to be "liberals," then ---- and kick over the bloody coffee tables --- and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2012! Destroy them!

ROUNDS COOKING OFF

The Democrats have this "enemies list" --- denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside.  You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Terrorist!” and you can be a “Dictator” and you can be a “Hostage-taker!” and you can “Wear a tinfoil hat!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” --- a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be “Uneducated” and you can be an “Extremist!”  You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Flake!”  and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be "Unenlightened!" and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” --- although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist --- either official, or self-appointed.

Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things - and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scum --- by The Friends of All Mankind --- by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs --- by the Democrat party, in other words.  No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

THE AGE OF OHBUMMER OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers.  Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled.  He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system --- the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers --- and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House --- and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers. And --- now widely seen for what he is --- the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media.  They pump out his propaganda for him --- and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” --- they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables. He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious --- a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton.  He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk. He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug. He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden --- indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks. He declares himself the post-racial leader --- “Let me be clear!” he intones --- and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk. He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda --- and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through.  Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer --- “The Mistake of ‘08” --- the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc --- the King of The Republic of Lies --- and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers. http://www.youtube.com/watch_p...

ENVY AND THE ANTI-CAPITALISTIC MENTALITY

The enemies of pure, laissez-faire capitalism --- a politico-economic model which has never been tried --- are adept at laying the shortcomings of government policy [statism] at the feet of capitalism.

And the more frequent, abject and complete the failure of these statist policies, the more urgently they demand more of the same.

But Austrian School [capitalist] economist Murray Rothbard argued that if our goal is the Benthamite "greatest good for the greatest number," then it is necessary to adopt laissez faire capitalism.

Is it true that there are unequal success rates among human beings --- and therefore unequal rewards in the free market?  Sure!

For example, my body mechanic [my doctor] and my auto mechanic both make more money than I do --- but of course I would not recommend that you hire me to remove your appendix or to fix your car --- unless you're pretty much tired of living.

The market rightly rewards them better than it rewards me for their kind of work --- pero asi es la vida.

SAM ADAMS IS MORE THAN JUST A GREAT YANKEE BEER!

TAX HATER SAMUEL ADAMS, ON A ROLL AND ARMED TO THE TEETH, AUGUST, 1776……

"You darkeners of counsel, who would make the property, lives and religion of millions depend on the evasive interpretations of musty parchments; who would send us to antiquated charters of uncertain and contradictory meaning, to prove that the present generation are not bound to be victims to cruel and unforgiving despotism, tell us whether our pious and generous ancestors bequeathed to us the miserable privilege of having the rewards of our honesty, industry, the fruits of those fields which they purchased and bled for, wrested from us at the will of men over whom we have no check.

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, and supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom – go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

“Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty. Dismissing, therefore, the justice of our cause, as incontestable, the only question is, What is best for us to pursue in our present circumstances?”

“It does not take a majority to prevail….but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

“Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”

“The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
