" The contracting for $385 million with Kellogg, Brown, and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, for the construction of a detention camp meant not just for immigrants.
" The introduction of military commissions to try criminal cases.
" The assertion of the state secrets privilege to protect the government from lawsuits by victims of torture and government abuse. http://www.solidarity-us.org/site/node/2675.
Yes friends, this comes from a socialist website, but please don't discount the facts, and the Socialists are the only ones that are telling you the truth. Don't sit there and take in the crap the Republicans and Democrats are selling you. It just doesn't add up. Where was the discussion of these actions by the Federal Government? Are these just issues that "terrorists" should be wary of? Remember that the Fed's branded an OWS movement a "terrorist organization". Where was the discussion on that? There was no discussion because there was no disagreement on how to deal with OWS.
2. The disparity of wealth in America.
What can I say that the graph doesn't tell you? Read the article. By the way, I tried to go to the University of California at Santa Clara article called "Who Rules America?" and was blocked for some reason. I just went back and it was up on the web again. This is probably the most definitive article on wealth distribution around. It's no wonder that OWS is around. For those who believe it's gone, don't kid yourselves. As long as this problem exists, this movement will go on.
3. Trade Union Busting.
This is a disturbing trend in America. When the government took over the auto industry, it essentially busted the auto workers union. It created a two-tier system. The auto workers that were there were forced to buy their healthcare. If this wasn't bad enough, new auto workers had to come in at half the pay that existing auto workers were being paid. This was a plan that essentially made the auto workers buy into the company. Who actually won in the end"the shareholders. The auto workers union is dead meat.
