Occupy Los Angeles hit by Rain and Snow

Wisdom Quarterly

In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and its Halloween winter, Occupy Los Angeles (City Hall, Van Nuys, Pasadena, Sherman Oaks...) is drowning in a sudden storm.

The skies have been seeded with chemical spraying from the secret government's aerosol campaign (like most weeks). When the spraying meets sufficient moisture from cold fronts, there is a desert deluge.

Snow is expected at the 4,000 foot level. Snow in LA? "Los Angeles" is largely forest and wilderness. Look at a map. But no one calls our mostly burned out adjacent forest "LA." It's the Angeles National Forest, the San Gabriel Mountains, the Santa Monica Mountains, and so on. The snow falls up there, quickly melts, and floods our all-concrete "river."

But everyone knows LA is a "concrete jungle." That it is. And our tents and blankets are wet. Angelenos have no real winter clothes, just windbreakers, flip flops, and tees.



On Sept. 25th filmmaker Laura Hanna took her camera to Wall Street and captured protesters gathered to express their opposition to the proposed Wall Street bailout.
That was 2008. The $700,000,000,000 (billion) bailout Bush endorsed has been widely unpopular with the public. Its lack of support reaches beyond party affiliation and ideological sympathies. But the 1 percent likes it.

No more "privatizing profits and socializing losses," declared one protester. "They live by the free market; let them die by the free market."
