Feb. 19, 1942 - a date which will live in infamy - the Preisdent of the United States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, imprisoning in concentration camps or forcing out of west coast states 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans because the populace fear Japanese wee spies for the Emperor. Seventy Years later, NDAA was signed by President Barack Obama (a Democratic president), and now legislation is being introduced to actually revoke our citizenship: HR3166 in the House and S1698 in the Senate.
Yes, the title of my blog may raise a few eyebrows, and I truly hope it does. Because 70 years ago on Feb 19, 1942, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed an executive order that forced more than 120,000 Japanese 60% being U.S. citizens into concentration camps on the west coast and as far east as Jerome Arkansas. This was the end-result of fear and racism against a group of people for whom the white folks felt that they would be a threat to the U.S.
The purpose for OccuplyLA or OWSLA is to unite under the umbrella of the 99% and support those who suffer under the oppressive 1%ers. And right now, hundreds if not thousands of workers who work for Food4Less supermarket are about the receive less. Food4Less, whose parent company owns Ralphs is owned by Krogers in Cincinnati Ohio Kroger is denying benefits and a decent wage for the hard working men and women, selling us food for our survivability.
Though I can't confirm and neither the union nor close friends in the LAPD will, I have a feeling the LAPD complaint form is not used to discipline officers but to use it against them when they are going for a promotion. And as a tool to encourage the officer(s) to do as the captain says, promotions may be inevitable...maybe. The evidence
When the LAPD's union asks for support, a political chess move would be to our advantage, especially when their livelihood is at stake. With the elections coming up in 2012 and Mitch McConnell and the Republican's goals is to make President Obama at one-term president a must at the expense which includes sacrificing our safety for a permanent Republican government, we could truly use the madness as Occupiers to our advantage and the opportunity to do so can garner support from the men and women from the LAPD.
The following is from the Los Angeles Police Protective League's blog.
Were we surprised that some were treated like garbage by the LAPD? And now with the posting I'm reading, though I may not disagree with them, I have one issue. Where are the names of the LAPD command staff? Where are the names and photos of:
I called this blog OccuLie. Not ONLY are our elected officials lying to us but the corporations...namely Google. I was at my parents place and decided to do an experiment. I was on Google Maps and noticed how there is no reference to our protest. I then chk'd Google Earth and used the time mode to see the changes on City hall as you could see, the lawn is green and the fence sitting atop of the K-rail are not there. WHERE IS OWSLA??? It's as though we never existed. So then I Googled Zucotti Park. I've seen people and went to street view, but no Patriots Occupying.
Hey Fellow Patriots. Like the word Internet, maybe it's time we capitalize the letter O in occupy and make occupy a proper noun. That's my suggestion. But who are we as Occupiers? We are a political movement that is making an impact on the world we live in. Unlike the Tea Party movement whose leaders are corporations, we are a truly grassroots group that can guide legislation impacting the 99% in our favor. Our impact is felt all over and one such is:
A case may go to federal court on one of two bases.
(1) The first, is if the anchor/main case is based on a federal question. (Pure federal controversy) In this case, the court will apply federal substantive and procedural rules. (Procedural as in the FRCP)
As upsetting as one feels against the LAPD, I am getting word from my LAPD sources that both the men and women PATRIOTS (new name for Occupiers) have a bigger pair than they do. Why? Because if they did what you did, they'd be fire. Their fear is being fired and they do as they're told...much to the chagrin of their oath to protect and to serve the people and to defend the Constitution of both the U.S. and California.
