XO Covers the Occupy KC "Parade"

Occupy KC marchers take message to downtown sidewalks

The Kansas City Star

"Members of the Occupy KC movement made a loud, spirited and peaceful march through downtown Kansas City Friday.To the accompaniment of drums and other musical instruments, between 150 and 200 people took part in a New Orleans style jazz funeral march signifying the death of the social safety net.Denied a permit to walk in the streets because they could not afford to pay for the police protection required by the city, the marchers kept to the sidewalks — for the most part — during the 90-minute event."

XO - Good pictures.

My fave:

Someday the poor will have nothing
to eat but the rich.

My slogan for 2012:

Someday people are going to rise up and kill lawyers.

I remember telling my mother about 30 years ago, that there will never be any social security left for my generation when it came time for our retirement. Well, that prediction was wrong, and social security is going to be here for the next generation too. The retirement age will be raised just as it has been in the past (now 66-1/2)and it's a pretty easy fix.

Medicare and medicaid are huge problems and have to be fixed or they will go away for everybody, but nobody is suggesting that they be eliminated.

But, most of all, the whole tax system must be changed and simplified and fraud eliminated to the extent possible (and I know it won't all be, but I think there will be big improvements).

But, ya know what, nobody ever promised everybody a "net for life". Europe is showing us what happens to that net when it's overpromised.

Happy New Year. Let's hope it's better than the last.

Oh dear!

Eat the rich?

Are y'all mad?

Hardly the stuff of a healthy and balanced diet, now is it? Though, I must admit, masticating a morsel of Trump tartare would engender a certain succoring gravitas and who could turn down a Hilton skin-taco? Certainly not yours truly I reckon.

Besides, remember the old adage; you are what you eat!

Jarheads Blog - Your comment had absolutely nothing to do with the subject of the post and you insulted one of my readers. So I deleted it.

Mr. Onassis,

If in the extremely likely event one of your readers should insult me in the future I would request you allow the alleged pixelated pixilation to remain visible. I'm a big girl and quite capable of a witty and disarming riposte. I am also like a wild country rose, beautiful, calm and fragrant but willing to draw blood in my defense.
