Occupy Houston March To Start On Thursday, October 6 At 8:30 AM—Why I Will Be There

(Update– 10/06/11–Here is my post on the event today.) 

(Blogger’s Note— I’m going to say just I what I said yesterday in this space with one new link at the bottom and a new poster for the event below the links. I’ve been heartened  by the amount of blog traffic my posts on the Occupy movement and Occupy Houston have been receiving. Let’s be hopeful and see where all this leads.)   

I’ve worked ever since I graduated college.

I willingly pay all my taxes.

I vote in every election.

I write a political blog so I can be part of our democracy.

I spend much of my free time reading and following baseball.

Maybe I’m the conservative.

Maybe my friends are the conservatives.

Maybe the Occupy Wall Street folks are the conservatives.

We just want a decent society where playing by the rules and working hard is rewarded.

What we don’t what is a nutball free-for-all of corporate criminals owning our politicians, endless war based on lies, and treating people like crap because they may be gay or of color.

This is why I’ll be attending the Occupy Houston event you see described below.

I think we need to be—working together—the source of our own hope and change.

The work of freedom and democracy is up to each of us.

Here is the Occupy Houston website.

Here is the Occupy Wall Street website. 

Here is a great view on the protests from the liberal magazine The Nation.

Here is a Daily Kos post with links to Occupy efforts all across the country. This is a great resource.
