Attorney Rees Lloyd
November 21, 2011
Do the so-called "Occupiers" who declare they "represent the 99%," represent you?
Do the American Federal, State, County, and Municipal Workers (AFSCME) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), whose members are also overwhelmingly "public sector employees" -- formerly identified as "public servants" but fast becoming "public enemies" as official sponsors of, and participants in, the "Occupiers" arrogant takeovers of the public's parks, streets, and other public places -- represent you?
Do you agree with the Occupiers' principle if not only coherently articulated non-abstract demand that American taxpayers must to be compelled by the Federal Government to pay the Occupiers' "college loans" -- while Americans of the same college-age as the majority of the Occupiers are fighting, being wounded, and dying, defending freedom in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq?
Do you agree with SEIU's recently retired president Andy Stern, the former "social worker" who transformed the SEIU's prior view of public service into his own Sol Alinsky-informed neo-socialist political view of big government domination of Americans lives, threat that: " 'Workers of the World Unite' is no longer just a slogan, but how we have to do business[,] and "We [SEIU] will use the power of persuasion, but, if that doesn't work, we will use the persuasion of power[,]" against the very public whose taxes pay the public sector employees of SEIU?
Does the position of President Barack Hussein Obama, the former "community organizer" who has publicly stated that Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals" have been "burned into my [his] brain," whose most frequent guest in the White House in his first year in office was SEIU's Alinsky-ite Andy Stern [22 visits], and who has stated he understands and supports the Occupiers, represent your position?
Do you agree with the Obamite (rhymes with Termite) protesters that they have a "right" to take over parks, streets, other public places, without complying with permit regulations or other laws applicable to all other Americans but not to them?
For evidence of the Occupiers arrogant usurpation of public streets, parks, and other public places, please check out the television news clips, and blogs (including mine), from the blog of radio talk show host and patriot Victoria Taft, a voice for freedom and patriotism, showing the acts of the Occupiers in Portland, OR, the Principality of Progressive Political Correctness, where the true position of the Occupiers regarding their country was succinctly expressed on television interview: "F**k this Country" (See Victoria Taft's Blog for Nov. 18, 2011.
Portland's Mayor, Liberal Progressive Obamite Sam Adams -- a homosexual predator who now admits his seduction of a 17-year-old male teenage City Hall intern, first physically expressed in a long "French kiss" in the City Hall Men's Room -- has refused to enforce the laws equally against his fellow Liberal Progressive Obamites in the so-called "Occupied Movement," which is the political equivalent of a bowel movement.
No matter their self-righteous elitist assertion that they can do as they please because they believe their intentions are soooo good, the constitutional fact is that even Obamite Liberal Progressives like Portland Mayor Sam Adams, the homosexual predator and Men's Room Seducer, or Los Angeles' Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa -- the law school failure who has proved that in America if you can't pass the bar and practice law you can just become a politician instead and make the law and enforce it as you choose, or even President Barack Hussein Obama, Himself, has and have a duty to enforce the law equally, and not unequally based upon race, creed, sex, or political affiliation as they pick and choose.
Compare: The Tea Party Patriots have been vilified as "racists," even "terrorists," for universally peaceful demonstrations in which hundreds of thousands have gathered without one act of violence or damage to property. In contrast, the self-righteous Occupiers are babied by media and Liberal Democrat politicians as they take over streets, destroy parks, defecate and copulate publicly, all the while boohooing that, gee whiz, they are not being bailed out of paying the student loans they sought and received due to the generosity of the taxpayers backing up those loans -- even though those babylike students would not have a work history, a credit history, or assets which would normally be required for receipt of a loan.
The Occupiers confuse government distorted "crony capitalism," with free market "capitalism," then give evidence that what they really want is to be recipients of "crony capitalism" by demanding that they be "bailed out" of their student loans as if entitled thereto. They carry out pretentious psychodramas in public, beating breasts and drums tribal-like and ludicrously, protesting self-righteously but without the ability to articulate just what it is they are protesting against, uttering instead such vapid calls for national action as "Stamp Out Greed!;" and without the ability to coherently articulate what they are protesting for, other than the rather greedy demand that taxpayers' pay the Occupiers' student loans.
Indeed, the closest they have come to a concise articulation of what they are really about is the inelegant but revealing slogan expressed by the Portland Occupier in response to inquiring media minds: "F**k this Country!"
The Occupiers are apparently willfully blind to the fact that they usurp the public's streets and parks from Wall Street to Portland, but fail to protest against the person most responsible for the "crony capitalism" problems bringing the country down and unemployment up –President Barack Hussein Obama, His Incompetence, whose ties with the Wall Street elite before and after Obama's election have been devastatingly detailed and exposed by best selling author Charles Gasparino in his book "Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama And Wall Street."
While you contemplate whether these self-righteous latter-day Hippy/Yippy imitations of 1960's drugged-out student protestors, and their protectors like President Obama, other Liberal Progressive politicians, ultra-liberal college faculty with their heads securely in the public trough while denouncing the public which feeds them, and public sector unions like SEIU and AFSCME, should be supported or repudiated, please keep in mind that while these "Occupiers" trashed America and brazenly and publicly expressed the slogan "F**k this Country" on Veterans Day and thereafter, Army Spc. David E. Hickman, 23-years-old, of Greensboro, N.C., died as result of an IED (improvised explosive device) exploded by Muslim jihadist terrorists to kill Americans in Iraq on Monday, November 14, 2011.
Spc. David Hickman died for the freedom of his country, while his civilian collegiate-age non-peers in the Occupied Movement exploited and denigrated the freedom that veterans like him have purchased for them by trashing their country and expressing their ingratitude for the freedom bought with veterans' blood by shouting "F**k this Country."

His family mourns Army Spc. David E. Hickman, as do the families of the other 4,485 veterans who have died for freedom in Iraq, and the 1,716 who have died in Afghanistan, while these self-righteous mostly college-age Occupiers usurp public streets, parks, and other public spaces, self-righteously demanding that they are entitled to have their college loans paid.
In short, pampered, privileged American Occupiers occupy against their country, while American soldiers die for their country.
Shameful. An appalling disgrace.
Enough is enough.
