Occupy Demand: Divest or Resign


(11 links, 3 photos) OCCUPY WALL STREET should demand that decision makers choose between their government jobs and their corporate affiliations. Corporations got tax cuts and bail-outs while Americans got left out. To reverse that, only one change is necessary: DEMAND THAT ELECTED AND APPOINTED OFFICIALS DIVEST THEMSELVES OF CORPORATE STOCK. Three main reasons for America's economic woes are wars, mass incarceration, and outsourcing jobs to prisons and overseas. Corporations benefit by all of these.  Officials are not inclined to vote against their own wallets and stock portfolios. Decision makers who own stock that performs best during wars or because of high incarceration benefit by continuing those conditions. That is why wars escalate, environmental protections suffer, and corporate interests are prioritized over Americans regardless of what political party is dominant or the races of decision makers. Simply put, our representatives and other decision makers ARE the 1%.

America has many problems, but only ONE SOLUTION that will address them all.  Our elected and appointed officials must DIVEST themselves of corporate stock or RESIGN from office.  Few people are patriotic or humane enough to vote against government actions that are earning them millions. It constitutes a major conflict of interest for decision makers who own or invest in corporations to vote for or against government programs that impact corporate earnings.

ELECTED AND APPOINTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SHOULD DIVEST THEMSELVES OF CORPORATE STOCK OR WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD DEMAND THEIR RESIGNATIONS.

DIVEST OR RESIGN! DIVEST OR RESIGN!   
Choose ye this day whom ye will serve - the People or international corporations.  You have proved you cannot serve both. 

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other" - Matt. 6:24. Americans  are in this grievous position because decision makers serve their bank accounts rather than constituents. As corporate owners and stockholders, they have a serious conflict of interest representing the People. Remove the conflict and eliminate the problem. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves [and us] through with many sorrows ~ 1 Timothy 6:10.

Today I am with the Occupy Wall Street Atlanta protesters in the 100 block of Peachtree Street in Troy Davis Park, as it was renamed by the Occupy Atlanta.  It was formerly Woodruff Park.  Mayor Reed announced that he will not order Occupy Atlanta protesters forcibly removed until Monday, October 17 in order to prevent their removal from casting a negative shadow on the dedication ceremony of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Memorial in Washington, D.C. on October 16.  Having people speak at the King Memorial who have no interest in protecting or promoting peace or civil and human rights, especially for blacks, already overshadows the event. 

Discuss Occupy Atlanta on television. Fred V-Mann's "PrimeTime Good News" live TV show Wednesday, October 19.  Internet Access at http://www.peopletv.org/   from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. EST.  The call-in number is (404) 873-0149.  Guests are welcome to come to the studio for the show at 190 14th Street, Atlanta, GA.  (Take the 10th- 14th St. exit located near Georgia Tech.)
Occupy Atlanta has a rally and march daily to highlight injustices that are major concerns in America.  Following a 5:00 p.m. rally in Troy Davis Park, today's itinerary includes a march to the Atlanta Task Force at 477 Peachtree Street, a shelter for homeless men.  Marching with Occupy Atlanta will give many people an opportunity to see my sign that says "WRONGFUL DEATH OF LARRY NEAL.com" on one side and "COCHRAN FIRM FRAUD" on the other.  News reporters have photographed me with the sign at numerous protests throughout 2011, but those pictures and my family's justice quest are censored.  I will post more photographs from the various protests in my blogs.  The last event where I used the sign was the Atlanta march and rally to save Troy Davis on September 16.  Over a thousand people gathered to protest Troy's execution, but racism claimed another life.  Racism and class consciousness in America's justice system thrives in the 21st century.  In fact, if most of the Occupy Atlanta protesters were not white, I might not be marching with them today.  I usually only attend protests that whites organize in Atlanta.  It is like having a "pass."  In June 2010, Atlanta police threatened to Taser and arrest me for speaking with people on the public sidewalk about the murder of my mentally, physically disabled brother after 18 days of secret arrest and The (Johnnie) Cochran Firm fraud against my family as its clients to save the government facility where Larry Neal was killed.  I told the police officers that I was not breaking any laws and that I have free speech rights, but one officer replied, "Not in Atlanta you don't."  That happened less than a block from where Occupy Atlanta tents are today.  What a difference skin-privilege makes in America, even with Negroes in charge.  See Mary Neal v. USA http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2011/09/mary-neal-v-usa-re-racism-conspiracy.html  

As America's economy is deliberately "flattened" so that corporations can pay equivalent wages in America as in Africa, India and China, unemployment and homelessness are prevalent problems.  Learn about Atlanta Task Force at this link:  http://www.homelesstaskforce.org/programs.html .

Interesting. I published this article on Oct. 11, 2011, in my MaryLovesJustice blog. I then shortened it to a handout size that I could fit on the front and back of a half page (8 1/2" x 11") and pass out downtown Atlanta to the Occupy protesters and participants at their march. I had to pay at Kinkos on Peachtree, directly across the street from the "nonexistent" Atlanta office of The Cochran Firm to add the paragraph about FredVMan's offer to televise the Occupy protesters' point of view. Now, because of the IP Protection Act that is before Congress, the game seems to be to send people to claim ownership of my original content.

H.R.3261 and S.968 were introduced in Congress in 2011, supposedly to protect intellectual property. Some people have websites that publish movies and videos without permission. But I knew the bills would be used for censorship against dissidents, and I was right. The gov can have someone claim ownership of bloggers' original content or articles in independent online news (that really publishes uncensored news (few)), and quicker than fleas land on a dog's back in summer, the Justice Department can delete blogs used for to report government abuses and ask for positive change. What a shame. It is not hard for agents to produce "proof" that they published a work before the real author, I perceive. I have written almost exclusively about money being the root of all evil regarding criminalizing mental illness, high incarceration numbers, and injustice in courtrooms for over six years - hundreds of articles. In January 2011, I started the Boycott 4 Justice initiative, requesting that Americans stop shopping for just 24 hours a month on the 9th to protest corporate greed and government misdeeds. I feel that there is unity between government officials and corporations that the People lack, and I have written much about that. Now, suddenly, with H.R.3261 looming in Congress, none of that is my idea and I copy off other writers. This is what happens when people stop going to Church. Jesus, have mercy. Lord, I know the Rapture is coming soon. Here we are perhaps on the verge of WWIII, Congress just passed a scary bill allowing indefinite detention of Americans without trial, and a person comes to claim my blog. Swing low, sweet chariot. Jesus is coming for His church soon. Watch out, bloggers and independent news sites. They will come claim your creative product soon, and I don't know if you will have a chance to protest before Mr. Holder removes your websites. That is how they will remove dissidents from the Internet. Sweet Jesus. These End Times are scary.

what is so scary about being asked to just sign a petition? I stopped in here today because I was going to say that yes I can't possibly be the only person who realizes that the answer to our problems was divest and resign (I hope)and I was stopping back here to apologize. As far as concerns about "stealing Work" I do not think one could copyright a request to congress to divest or resign:) I remain steadfastly hopeful that as difficult as it is to get many to grasp just why and how important this is that it will nonetheless take hold. Perhaps we could join forces? I will try to remember to look for messages tomorrow.

Ms. Tea, thank you for writing the three comments above. You tipped us off that S.968 and/or H.R.3261 will pass in Congress. If Congress passes bills to put the Internet in America under the Injustice Dept., supposedly to protect intellectual property, we now know how the government intends to excuse taking down websites with original content like mine. CoIntelPro agents will simply claim that their work was plagiarized. The agents may even have fabricated "proof" of the infringement they claim, if any proof is needed. I do not know if people will have the opportunity to answer plagiarism allegations or if the USDOJ will just order the websites that contain censored information taken offline without any due process. No due process is even applied to my disabled brother's murder in the USA.

You accused me of 1)stealing your idea; 2) stealing your study notes. What study notes? Wouldn't I need to come to your home or office to get your study notes? Now you claim you only asked me to sign a petition. That is ridiculous with your accusation clear in the comments above.

I posted "Divest or Resign" on OWSAtlanta's wall. I don't know if it stayed there or not, because I have stalkers. I also delivered hundreds of copies directly into the hands of people at OWSAtlanta and supporters during a march. I exchanged phone numbers and other information with dozens of people who can verify that fact. However, as stated, I do not believe the USDOJ would be fair enough to allow targeted people to defend their websites against phony intellectual property infringement allegations. The purpose of those bills is probably to rid the Internet of voices of dissent, scrub the Internet clean of police brutality videos, give encumbents the power to limit their political opponents' access to mass media, and reduce public visibility of start-up companies that threaten existing corporations.

Thank you for showing us how websites with original content will be taken offline under the IP Protection Act and E-Parasite Act, if they pass. Just send an agent to claim the work is theirs. Pitiful.

Mary

Just wanted to say you deleted my nice comment and then without acknowledging what I said nice (I figured we were on the same side?) went on to say I was agent? No I am no agent of anyone, just me a citizen, and In my last comment I did calm down (I too have had the same concerns as you about freedom of sharing information restrictions, I deal with censorship and monitors daily and yes concerned over future website shutdowns) I also said I should have realized and been grateful that I am not the only one who sees such a common sense demand as Divest or Resign as needed now. Well just in case censors deleted and you really didn't see it...that's what i said. Peace > Debbie P

wow... you know what I cannot believe this is what you took away from the comments I made to you then??? You say only that I accused you of plagiarism ??? Where is the rest of what I commented and communicated to you? I reached out to you and said to you gee I should have realized (and was belatedly glad) that I was not the ONLY one to think of Divest or Resign... and Mary Loves Justice refused to respond any further... then I find additional materials written about me on the four winds site? A Co Intel pro agent? Really? You are so far off base you are not even in left field... wow ... sad..

You wrote this about me on four winds site... Dec. 7, 2011
BAD NEWS: Congress will pass H.R.3261, the E-Parasite bill that will be used to censor Internet content in America. The bill supposedly is to protect intellectual property, but its purpose is to silence dissidents. As the most censored American, I know fascist plans by what is done to me. Yesterday, a woman laid claim to two of my articles, saying she wrote them and I plagiarized her work - OCCUPY DEMAND: DIVEST OR RESIGN - http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/occupy-demand-divest-or-resign.html - Read the four comments. Meet Ms. Tea, who was apparently sent to lie on me after the government already killed my brother, Larry Neal, and used The Cochran Firm to defraud my family as our wrongful death attorneys, plus continues facilitates or condones censoring and stalking me for years because I reveal human rights abuses online to engender help for suffering incarcerated mentally ill Americans and others who are victimized (Prov. 31:8).

False allegations of plagiarism by CoIntelPro agents will allow the Injustice Dept. to REMOVE YOUR WEBSITES that reveal government corruption. Google "CoIntelPro" to learn about the program, which was used by the Justice Dept. to squash the People's advocacy for liberty and justice for decades. See the long version of Occupy Demand: Divest or Resign in my MaryLovesJustice blog - http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2011/10/occupy-wall-street-protest-demand.html - I shortened it for my EXPOSED blog (first link above) in order to publish it on flyers that I distributed to Occupy Atlanta protesters on October 14, 2011. I distributed hundreds of copies of the shortened version.

Sincerely Debra Paulsen .... P.S. at least now I see why you never replied to my almost immediate and repeated attempts to apologize when all I wanted was "Gee the least you could have done was plugged the petition for Divest or Resign".... there was never any "accusation" made as you claim...The "TEA" lady... who BTW is a stage IV cancer survivor and my "Tea" business was ended by farm bill wording shortly after the instance Mary loves Justice speaks of.... wow the crap you find online... yeah I am offended and disgusted. Years of caring.... and this is my thank you? Sad THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL COMMENTS... where did I deserve what you said and did afterwards? Where did I accuse you as you claim of plagiarism?
