25 protesters arrested in Portland, for “taking over” a park in The Pearl– our very own miniature “posh urban” neighborhood. Like the West Hills, but without any hills. At the peak of the demo, there were apparently about 150 people. They chanted a lot but otherwise seemed pretty relaxed. Some were wearing Halloween costumes.

I watched some of the footage. The Mayor showed up but seemed, as ever, disengaged. The man really doesn’t give a fuck about people’s pain. I don’t know how much clearer he can make it beyond putting it on a damn T-Shirt at this point. (Of course, it would be a sustainable hemp T-Shirt with Soy-Based inks, because this is fucking Portland.)

Christian groups: we will bodily protect Occupy London from St Paul’s

Christian groups that have publicly sided with the protesters include one of the oldest Christian charities, the Fellowship of Reconciliation, and the oldest national student organisation, the Student Christian Movement, Christianity Uncut, the Zacchaeus 2000 Trust and the Christian magazine Third Way. In addition, London Catholic Worker, the Society of Sacramental Socialists and Quaker groups have offered their support.

I just saw that. 8)

Is it wrong that I’m spending so much of my Day Of Rest™ poking fun at all the little wannabe-oligarchs who showed up for that “Homeless Halloween” thread?

I mean, I’d rather be reading comics, but I’d have to pay for them.

Bloomberg to Host “Go-Big” Coalition for Sunday Dinner

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will host an intimate dinner at Gracie Mansion on Sunday night that brings together a bipartisan group of senators, Xerox chief executive Ursula Burns and other business and labor leaders to discuss how to pave the way for the Super Committee to “go big” and cut $4 trillion in federal spending, according to a source familiar with the dinner.

The Washington contingent includes Democratic Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Warner and Republican Sens. Bob Corker, and Saxby Chambliss, among others. The meeting will be a much smaller, more strategic affair — 10 to 20 people — than a similar dinner Warner threw at his home in September, which had a guest list of 60.

Occupy Gracie

To eliminate the budget deficit, the SuperCommittee could simply tax the top 1% through a Millionaires Tax and a Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street speculation.

But instead they plan to slash Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and everything else essential to the survival of the 99%.

Their joyful champagne toast will be “Let them eat cake!”

Naturally, the 99% were not invited to dine with the 1% at Gracie Mansion. So we’ll just have to @OccupyGracie.

At 6 p.m. we’ll gather at 88th Street and 1st Ave (outside the Bagel Mill) and march 2 blocks to Gracie at 88th and East End.

Come dressed as Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, or a Peasant – and bring the family. We’ll vote for the best costumes and they will serve us all cake!

Los Lobos provides the musical portion of our service:


“…Some hearts are made of stone
Some are cold, made of ice
Some beat all alone
Then there’s those made of steel
Those that don’t even feel
Where are those hearts, hearts of purest gold?…”

Preach it!

I am really surprised at Kamala Harris out here, staying out of it. The reporting, such as it is, is that she is getting the cold shoulder fom the Obammy crowd. She and her husband (at DOJ in DC) are (were?) close wtih Slobby.

Yeah it was never going to be much. Everything now is headlines. And nothing else.

They liked Oakland.

BTW NOW i is being reported there were 18 different cop jurisdictions out in Oakland that night. First it was 10, then 12 an dnow 18.

Madman in the Marketplace - 30 October 2011

I wouldn’t be surprised if the feds weren’t there, too.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

I assume they were.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

oh I sense a reformation, an awakening (snicker!): MoveOn.org is running TV ads against Quan. I don’t defend her, she is in full-on, no-holds-barred messy collapse, but Est Dems are moving in. They must be thrilled. Two birds one stone, Quan, who I would still maintain is not a standard issue thief.. AND ranked choice voting.

ms_xeno - 30 October 2011

MoveOn is so damn repugnant…

marisacat - 30 October 2011

:lol: they found a visible high road (supposedly pro Occupy, against Quan, against cops etc.) and grabbed it. So they continue to look Fake-Left. And I am sure are fundraising off it all.

snicker.

9. marisacat - 30 October 2011

Out of uriosity I looked up the mayor of Portland. yeah seems like a made man.
:lol: of the Democratic party variety.

ms_xeno - 30 October 2011

That’s pretty much all we ever get here.

Ursula LeGuin apparently praised Adams recently for his “Taoism,” because he took a trip to China when the Occupy stuff was first hitting Portland.

Yeah. “Taoism” = “Being A Rich, Clueless, Self-Centered Dick.”

LeGuin should stick to writing fiction.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

Hahahahah yeah I think all the cities where Occupy sites have been harshly, violently raided are Demcratic mayor towns.

I feel pretty safe thinking panic PANIC!!!!! that it all might be going on when the Dem mouth breathers converge on Charlotte NC is a big topic in hte WH. West Wing, whereever.

Bigger than Jahbz. Just a wild guess on my part

ts - 30 October 2011

I’m wondering if we might have another Chicago ’68 setting up here.

The whole world is watching.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

I don’t think the Occupies are going away…

And of course in ’68 things were rough at the Rep convention too, in Miami but it all got much much less attnetion than Daley and Chicago.

I think as soon as whichever dipshit gets elected mayor here in SF, as of Nov 8, after that we will see a huge crackdown.

10. marisacat - 30 October 2011

I cannot believe I am doing this, but I am listening to Perry on with Chris Wallace on FOX Sunday.

So bad…

Guess he tried to deliver more than pizza…. Cain got ambushed outside CBS studios after his interview with Shieffer.
:lol:

BooHooHooMan - 30 October 2011

LOL I saw that and figured, Okay, when do they clip him in the back of the head? I had such hopes for Herman. LOL..

I also saw that Ron Paul (NOT an Endorsement! LOL) has gotten enough traction among 2 Iowa straw poll hoohahs *** involving Iowa voters only***that he actually made CNN tonight .. LOL.
Apperently in Des Moines he carried 84% of 500 people who turned out… enough to hear talk on the CNN broadcast that there may be a whupset underway LOL.

So place yer bets, people: How long before reports roll in on the crazy old Dr. in the barn doin the unspeakable with corncobs upon livestock? :lol: Which is so wrong because, 4 out of 5 livestock polled so far (as it were) ALSO want to END THE FED. LOL Who Doesn’t? :lol:

Which

Sorry , I was LMAO too much…. :lol:

Ours is a broad based democracy…. and we kill anyone who says otherwise!

Oh I’d LURVE to see the guy disrupt the narrative…
Which will be allowed long enough till video is released of him in bed with a purported campaign operative dairy cow , the two of em sharing a nice post-coital doobie. LOL.

ETC.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

I gather Herman likes to baiser cheap pizza sausage.

Hard to beat that.

BooHooHooMan - 30 October 2011

You know,
sorta like the way they were OUT TO GET EDWARDS. :lol:
By the way, you see the latest on that dumbfucker?
Pre-trial motion to have his case dropped last week? DENIED. LOL
Easy come, easy go.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

Time’s up for Johnny.

I laughed pretty damned hard a few years ago (2004) when he fluffed and huffed and tried to stuff himself into pretzel or vice pretzel… AND hs record of barely voting came out, and almost never in a primary… AND that his first convention was 2000. A significant trial lawyer in a shitty pond called NC (and i even like the state but let’s get real) and no history of contact iwth the Dem party. Snicker.

Apparenlty he has spent the time since D I V O R C E and her death (finally! No more books!) warming barstools in his little burg.

I am REALLY sorry that his ”chop shop” as I call it, his packages of experts his firm hired out to cases on issues he had won on never was examined.

BooHooHooMan - 30 October 2011

:lol: Speaking of North Carolina and LOSERS,
hard to tell JUST WHO is gonna be shooting at the Dem Convention by August…I mean who’s the genius that picked Charlotte for next summer and , hell, ..Why?

Fuck , at this point, I think all we’ll need to do by then is set up Popcorn tents and watch as Obby calls in the Vanguard Pwog Bloggers to try and hold off the turned-savage Bank of America Headquarters types and ex-mil Battalions vying for first dibs at storming the Hall…. :lol:

BooHooHooMan - 30 October 2011

Of course, if there IS a lone gunman scenario,
it probably WILL be Edwards. :lol
They’ll have to get him into custody beforehand. LOL.

marisacat - 30 October 2011

Sadly he fell from the heights to become unhinged. A Great American Tragedy.

Doesn’t seem likely the cod liver oil and CDS (all fresh and new again!) and “eat your peas” and “listen to momma speaking to you from The Victory Garden” is going to go down well at all.

I jsut want my own travelling guillotine.. just one. I wuld be happy and not ask for anything more. Promise.

Welp, starting with the Bl :shock: berg:
:lol: …Enter , … the Socialist Troll –

Sarkozy Criticized for Seeking China’s Help

French President Nicolas Sarkozy came under fire from opposition leaders for seeking China’s help to resolve the euro area’s debt crisis.

“It’s shocking,” Martine Aubry, the general secretary of the Socialist Party, said in the Sunday newspaper, Journal du Dimanche. The Europeans, by turning to the Chinese, are showing their weakness. How will Europe be able to ask China to stop undervaluing its currency or to accept reciprocal commercial accords?”

Sarkozy reached out last week to his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao to build support for an enlarged rescue fund designed to solve the region’s sovereign-debt crisis. The leaders talked just hours after a euro-region summit on Oct. 27 ended with an agreement to boost the European Financial Stability Facility to about 1 trillion euros ($1.4 trillion), leveraging existing guarantees by as much as five times.

French opposition party objections to a Chinese role come six months before the country’s presidential election, and amid growing concern about public debt in France and in Europe. France’s public debt, which is more than 80 percent of gross domestic product, and its budget deficit are considered by a third of the French as the most important issues confronting the economy, above purchasing power and unemployment, according to an Ifop poll published yesterday in Ouest-France newspaper

Bon Dieu! – me plier un lavabo!
Oui, oui! — > Elle, comme un petit monstre hideux,
elle baise avec sa tête.,

..she trolls him,. :lol: fucks with his head.

Loved the Martine Aubry, particularly considering(.according to an AFP pice on al Aribiya anyways) China says…….
Good Luck!

Poor Sarko!
And BTW,”Wall Street star” Corzine?
called in the bankruptcy lawyers over the weekend…should be a filing, oh I don’t know, considering the snow and all?, LOL…- uh momentarily..
Merde! Poor Everybody! :lol:

marisacat - 30 October 2011

Children are taught in French language class that “baiser” is “to kiss”. Generation after generation use it innocently, I imagine on their first trip to France… … only to find out!

They have a lousy line up running too…. I have no idea who will win… Prolly Sarko… but last I read (before bebe!) his numbers were disastrously low. Not that it means much…

snicker.

13. marisacat - 31 October 2011

oh I feel so stupid. Whta does it mean when the water pipes rumble?

air in the pipes?

It started with my tub, when I turned on water, both the lower faucet and the shower rise. the wall seemed to vibrate, even.. and now in the middle of the fucking night the toilet is yelling.

I cannot believe it. The damned rumble in the toilet woke me up… flushing diminishes it very briefly and then it starts up.

what a dicey problem to have arrive.

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

1. Here, it’s usually freezing or water “hammer” (my bet) caused when larger, higher pressure supply lines (bigger pipes usually an 1 1/4″ , 1″, or 3/4″ pipes) as they branch off into smaller pipes supplying kitchen and bathrooms and their fixtures…
Here it’s usually that or,
2. they’re working somebody over in the basement. or
3. they found people chained in the basement after the lower level slave traders from a massive multi state fraud ring left.

So, methodically working backwards on a solution, in the last two cases, a hack saw should be used to free up victims, with no special attention to wiping it clean as it will be needed later before being discarded.Of course make a list of everything: And , necessarily, devolve into vigilantism.
BUT if it’s strictly a water issue, the landlord should put valves in at the branch of the lines giving the problem, and water lines can be draned,, blown out with air, and then add “water hammers” atop the pipes giving the problem…Usually attop the riser, say behind a sink wall or at branch of a main riser in a building,
By riser , meaning the Elites of water pipage in your building, :lol: :wink: , the main supplies hot + cold that rising from floor to floor before supplying the lesser , plebeian sorts :lol: of water lines near fixtures.

So,
:!: <– put the water hammer here :!: :!:
I ___________ when the supplies pick up a fixer here
I
I
I
I
BASEMENT

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

And if its a landlord problem, well then, there are solutions for that too, but we don’t have the re-education camps set up yet.
So if you really need water Now then I’d say the plumbing work is the way to go…. :lol: ..

(Oh c’mon. comrades! Trotsky was as much responsible for fucking things up the last time around because he couldn’t take a joke)

marisacat - 31 October 2011

Strangely after a few hours of it, it has passed. It was SO noisy it kind of unnerved me…. I think I will try to ignore unless it happens again, soon… then I will call in the neighborhood handy person to look at it…

Thanks!

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

That it was in the cold water lines too , it it sounded like it was intermittent a good thing, not uncommon in pipes as they get minerals build up etc that hopefully flush pass thru… and not uncommon when radiator heat is furst turned up in the Fall either, but you’ll know when you get the kind of OMG! WTF! unrelenting THIS IS IT! kinda thing when a boiler is ready to blow…. :wink:

marisacat - 31 October 2011

oh shoot… it could be the boiler?

ugh

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

Well my real expertise HERE IN JERSEY is as a political prognosticator.:lol: ;wink:

BUT :lol: FEAR NOT! — Anyways if there is a boiler to radiators, baseboards etc, and this thing only happens when the heat cycles on prolly a good idea to have someone check that the valves are all open, and the thermostat to the whatchamicalllit- the thermocouple/sensor inside where the furnace actually fires that THAT is in working order. Pretty hard to blow a boiler itself , but if the thing doesn’t know when to shut off – (sensor at the furnace) and/or valves are closed or the circulator. which pumps the water to radiators is in circulator Imbroglio or something, one of THOSE components need to be hammered ever so – (No! I’m kidding! No Hammers!) one of those components (about all there is) prolly will need replaced. Sometimes someone shuts or partially shuts valves in the heat loops in between seasons and they simply need re-opened..

All it is is a tea kettle piped to a pump, then looped through pipes back to the tea kettle, The thermostats runs to the burner saying mo’ betta heat or no mas up in heya.. The circulator pumps the warm tea of not freezing our ass off LIFE.. Relief valves, like a whistle on a tea kettle, Hell, :wink:, who knows what kind of shroomage could get in them? :lol: :wink: . So the thermostats, the circulator pump, , the peripheral valves along various living space loops , the pressure relief valves, Who ever calls should ask for a standard service call which should cover that and be ready with questions when they say you need a whole new reactor or something.. Do NOT, repeat, DO NOT :wink: :wink: , like my beloved once did, call somebody out by saying “I THINK OUR HOUSE IS READY TO BLOW UP!” :lol: :wink: :wink

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

*Again, the disclaimer in the New York, Jersey, and Philly markets is to always check FIRST to see if somebody is getting worked over in the basement.

Possible questions for savvy residents-
Is that O’Rourke kid or Nicky Manginiguini out on parole again?
Oh, They ARE the Plumbers now?

marisacat - 31 October 2011

I do have a boiler for the hot water…. and it is not old… just over 10 years… and appears to be in good shape.

If it returns I’ll call the local handyperson….
;)

at the moment it is blissfully quiet.

ts - 31 October 2011

In college we had steam baseboard heating. If the heater wasn’t turned all the way up (or all the way off), air would get in the furnace and cause a banging sound. Least that’s what they told me.

So if you have a boiler in the basement for this purpose, it may be causing the same problem. Could also happen, I would think, if they just started it up after a long summer and there was sediment and whatnot in the system. Otherwise, don’t listen to me and listen to bhhm.

14. BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

Well, We got the FBI all Halloween-treat freaked out now, anyways.
Which is great, ya know.
Now that the Nazis are showin up ready to help and all.

Corzine’s MF Global files for bankruptcy

Like,…. bummer.
With the NY FED closing its window and the NYSE delisting him. :lol:

Some other morsels tho as people pour over recent proxy statements …..Corzine set himself up for a 12 Million Dollar Golden Parachute.

And the boys at zerohedge have just been devouring the Chapeter 11 filing, noting that MF, Corzines corporate carcass, owes CNBC the better part of a mil in unpaid advertising .

while reminding the rest of us out here in Dead Peasant Land, that , conveniently, just LAst Week , :lol:
CNBC had Wall Street Piggy Fudge Packer Dick BOVE on…
(No no! Really! It’s Quite alright!
It’s Made from Real Corporate PIG FUDGE!)
seen in the middle of the clip just humping the fuck away how Corzines MF was fine and how blah blah blah and it’s a value play and blah blah blah before anybody makes Mass Exodus and blh blah blay and stay in and yada yada yada …to which the younger humps of course yield and chime in how Bove’s got a point and , etc. etc, ETC.

Oh I know, advanced capitalist decay,
we’ve all been over this before, but I really think (*especially for any malingering capitalist at this point) Patrick Byrne’s layout of what he calls Deep Capture is to be right there among the essential reading of the last 30 years….

marisacat - 31 October 2011

Deep capture? Great title .. thanks for the link!

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

IByrne is the guy who ran Overstock and the GS and Citi crowd all lined up behind meggy Moo’s Ebay… he thoroughly lays out how overstock came under an orchestrated “short” raid, how the SEC was in the bag, how they employed nummerous media shills and how the market moved and documented all their trades..

Byrne’s a very brght guy, and the mofo had great counsel, investigators, and IT people…During discovery, they got scads of damning internal emails, texts messages, etc, got a score of the journos and lackey traders Fired LOL and ultimately got GOT PAID by GS/ Rubin’s Crew…

Minor miracle it was…

IIRC..in the last year, a couple of their operative lessers at the Hedge Funds got time and are said to be co-operating in some :roll: criminal cases.

And speaking of plumbing, LOL –
This is an excellent update on Byrne from last summer,
the tids on Gary Weiss worth it on their own….

Patrick Byrne: ‘See, I told you America’s economy was busted’
The battle beyond naked shorts

marisacat - 31 October 2011

Is Byrne still running Overstock?

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

yeh, I see now that he and his company are hanging in so far…
And I have nothin in the market or otherwise, no dog in any retailers fight but his case as far as I know is the only one to survive such an onslaught ..

Also Byrne credits Jon Hanson at Harvard Law for coming up with “Deep Capture” ( Prof’s Legal work wraps around social dynamics, behavioral finance, and regulatory capture)
And here I just thought the fix was in!
Anyways, I did Catholic School and once served Latin Mass, so fuck, I can tolerate the intuhlecshally tedious from time to time when not shaving an insufferably ignorant mouthbreather in the mirror. :wink: ;lol:

marisacat - 31 October 2011

I ordered a couple of things from Overstock and ran into a problem, not with me or Overstock with the neighborhood mail boxes etc type of place that i had it sent to.

The customer service from Overstock was unbelievably good. It was not an expensive item, and even before it was clear it was the receiver’s error (they lost the package after USPS delivered it! AND refused to take any responsibility!) Overstock immediately sent a rplacement…. just 4 dishtowels for 15.00 but wow. AND they phoned me.

Here Come The “Unintended Consequences”: Stock Futures Liquidity Dries Up Post MF Bankruptcy
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/31/2011 – 13:34

Just like with Lehman, when it took 3 days for the full consequences of the bankruptcy to manifest themselves in the form of a complete freeze of money markets, so too now we are starting to see the same phenomenon following the blow up of one of the world’s largest exchanges. The first observation comes courtesy of Dow Jones which informs us that the MF Bankruptcy has “devastated stock futures liquidity.” Specifically, “MF Global’s departure from the clearing scene has “devastated liquidity” in stock index futures, a long-time CME floor broker said. He estimated about a third of the pit population is missing.

And while its notes that Goldman Sachs will picking up biz upon MF’s exit, IMO it still comes back to the basic point, there is no more foisting to be done – – > Like any of these “extend and pretend” deals are preventing Defaults from picking up pace….. :roll:

Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Recycle…..

Back in 2003, Oakland’s acting police chief, Howard Jordan, had this to say about the policy:

“You don’t need to have some sort of skill to be able to infiltrate these groups. If you put the people in there from the beginning, I think we’ll be able to gather the information. And maybe direct them to do something we want them to do.”

”You don’t need to have some special skill to be able to infiltrate these groups. If you put people in there from the beginning, I think we’ll be able to gather the information. And maybe direct them to do something that we want them to do.”

Amid Bankruptcy, MF Global Under Investigation
By MICHAEL J. DE LA MERCED and BEN PROTESS 5 minutes ago

Regulators have discovered that hundreds of millions of dollars in customer money has gone missing from MF Global in recent days.

:oops:

BooHooHooMan - 31 October 2011

Now, the investigation threatens to tarnish the reputation of Mr. Corzine, :lol: the former New Jersey Governor and Goldman Sachs chief who oversaw MF Global’s demise, making it the first American victim of Europe’s debt crisis.

What began as nearly $1 billion missing had dropped to less than $700 million by late Monday.

USA!!USA!! Oh JUST*~PASS*~THE*~NITROUS~~~~ :lol:

It is unclear where the money went, :shock: and
some money is expected to trickle in
:lol: over the coming days as the firm sorts through the bankruptcy process, the people said.

St Paul’s dean quits in Occupy protest

Graeme Knowles, the dean of St Paul’s, stands down with immediate effect, saying his position had become ‘untenable’
::

The perceived dithering and divisions of church officials over the protest camp outside St Paul’s in London have claimed a second major scalp with the resignation of the cathedral’s dean, the Right Rev Graham Knowles.

The dean – whose job is sufficiently senior that a replacement must be approved by the Queen – announced that mounting criticism over the cathedral’s handling of the situation made his position “untenable”.

{Snip}

Last week the St Paul’s canon chancellor, Giles Fraser, stepped down after the cathedral’s governing chapter voted to begin possible legal action against the Occupy the London Stock Exchange camp, in place now for 16 days. A part-time cleric also resigned.

Well, The last two resigned in support of Occupy London when they higher ups voted to sue for eviction…

Knowles, on the other hand, was the prig who was out in front whining about how people had to go,Move along, Move along God’s work and all, and was said to be a driving force behind them closing their doors…for the first time , and lasting longer than they during WORLD WAR II….. I saw a figure they released saying their losses for the week amounted to around 500,000 USD in tourist donations…which didn’t help them a bit. How

(Sorry, not able to post on current thread, I’m assuming it’s browser issues)

Really looking forward to tomorrow (and really regretting I won’t be able to make it there). Wonder how many throughways and Bart Stations the fuckers will be attempting to block off …goood luck fockers!.

It would be nice if there were counter protests held to avert those 17 plus County Mounties which typically send their cops up to Oaktown to put a brutal lid on a pressure cooker of neglected humanity.

I love this:

Declaration of Solidarity with Neighborhood Reclamations

Occupy Oakland, in solidarity with the Occupy movement and with the
local community, has established the principle of claiming for open use
the open space that has been kept from us. We are committed to
helping this practice continue and grow. Here in Oakland, thousands of
buildings owned by city, banks, and corporations stand idle and
abandoned. At the same time social services such as child and
healthcare, education, libraries and community spaces are being
defunded and eliminated.

Occupy Oakland supports the efforts of people in all Oakland
neighborhoods to reclaim abandoned properties for use to meet their
own immediate needs. Such spaces are already being occupied and
squatted unofficially by the dispossessed, the marginalized, by many of
the very people who have joined together here in Oscar Grant Plaza to
make this a powerful and diverse movement.

We commit to providing political and material support to neighborhood
reclamations, and supporting them in the face of eviction threats or
police harassment. In solidarity with the global occupation movement,
we encourage the transformation of abandoned spaces into resource
centers toward meeting urgent community needs that the current
economic system cannot and will not provide.

hmm there is a possibility that tomorrow might be a little surprising…but we shall see.
