So for the last few weeks something has been happening across the nation and now across the world. It's being occupied. Apparently a bunch of people are protesting against a bunch of 1%ers.

Youngraven gave voice to the thoughts about this much better than I could so I won't even try.

I will state that I was wondering when something like this would happen. I also wondered when people were going to start being arrested.

Now I'm actually afraid that it's going to escalate. What happens if this becomes a full blown riot? Typically I'm pretty good about looking at patterns and seeing what will unfold. (Just found out through a quick google search that it's happened in Rome. Tear Gas, and violence.)

So what will happen if things turn that ugly over here? Will it be like the LA Riots in 1992? Will it be multi-city or just restricted to one?

I can see this actually spreading like wildfire if the right wind comes up. I'm afraid for the people that will be nearby and wanting peace being punished for the handful that might become violent. Mob mentality can be frightening, even more so if some jackholes decide that peacful protest just isn't enough to shake TPTB up.

I also would love to know what protest songs are being sung at these events, because there have to be protest songs.

"Mary Ellen Carter" is one the band decided would be sung for sure. Suddenly this song has a new meaning for me.

Ain't nothing like the 60's, where protests, riots and sit-ins were EVERYWHERE.
