For two turkeys the day before at least 45 million of their comrades are to be consumed at dinner tables across the country, it’s the equivalent of winning the jackpot.
“Tomorrow is one of the best days of the year to be an American. It is a day to count are blessings, spend time with the ones we love, and enjoy some good food in great company. But it’s also one of the worst days to be a turkey. They don’t have it so good,” Obama said at a ceremony on the North Portico of the Whit House [QUOTE: CNN]

WASHINGTON — “You had better be siding with the people enough that the people don’t get so angry they take you apart, because in the end in this country, if you are deviant enough from the people, they will take you apart, and in the end, that’s where the power ultimately lies.”
That statement sounds like something that would come out of the mouth of an Occupy Wall Street protester. In fact, it was made by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Feb. 21, 2002, during a debate with political activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader… Read entire article on Huffington Post Politics.
Newt Gingrich courts the favors of the rich elite and ascribes his own warped view of the Occupy protesters. I seriously doubt Newt has visited one of the protests and engaged in dialogue with those who oppose him and his kind. How can he speak so intimately about these honest people? You have to get really close to someone to know if they need a bath. And, Newt, Mr. Historian, public parks are just that: Public…for all. And, your words remind of this line from The Bible: “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all of our righteousnesses are like filthy rags” (Isa. 64:6) Newt, do you really see yourself as…clean?
Your self-serving diatribe tries to take political advantage without contributing anything to the discourse. If you are a “historian”, you realize that the Occupy movements are grassroots beginnings of a righteous movement similar to the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Vietnamese War protests. Newt, “The times are changing. Get out-of-the-way if you can’t lend a hand! The times, they are ‘a’ changing.” (Dylan)

America, Howard Beal speaks for all of us. His anger in the movie (Network) mirrors the anger of the 99% of Americans whose incomes and standard of living has been in a 30 year decline. You are mad! You refuse to take it anymore! Pack your bags, make a reservation and release your anger at

Next up: `Occupy Congress’
One of the enduring questions about Occupy Wall Street has been this: Can the energy unleashed by the movement be leveraged behind a concrete political agenda and push for change that will constitute a meaningful challenge to the inequality and excessive Wall Street influence highlighted by the protests?
A coalition of labor and progressive groups is about to unveil its answer to that question. Get ready for “Occupy Congress.”
The coalition — which includes unions like SEIU and CWA and groups like the Center for Community Change — is currently working on a plan to bus thousands of protesters from across the country to Washington, where they will congregate around the Capitol from December 5-9, SEIU president Mary Kay Henry tells me in an interview.
