There is no True Reality.

While this blog was initially about my adventures in growing my own food, it has morphed into a window into my search for the truth and justice I was raised to revere. Also, be warned that while I strive to be open-minded and open-hearted, I can have some very strong opinions on certain subjects.

A petition has been created at Change.org with the intent of being sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, asking him to remove NYPD’s deputy inspector of Patrol Borough Manhattan South - Anthony Bologna from the force for pepper-spraying peaceful protesters at Union Square on September 24th. →

reagan-was-a-horrible-president:

The petition states, “We demand that Anthony Bologna be charged with assault for his actions and that he sees jail time.”


It also states, “We demand that Mayor Michael Bloomberg address the Occupy Wall Street & General Assembly and apologize for the police brutality and the weak attempt at a cover-up that has followed.”


Also included in the petition is a request to remove NYPD Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly for not being able to control senior officers but in “sheltering them from receiving punishment.”


Bologna clearly displayed not only a lack of judgment but also a reprehensible reaction to his own actions—running away from his handiwork and, according to some, laughter.

At the very least, the pepper-spray incident deserves investigation, as well as the high-tailing it from the scene; but the laughter after the fact should be investigated as well.


It seems that Bologna has a history with protesters. Bologna stands accused of false arrest and civil rights violations in a 2007 claim filed by a protester who attended the 2004 Republican National Convention demonstrations. The case is to be heard next year.

And Cryptome makes reference to a 2001 May Day incident in which Bologna shoved two protesters.

Head over to Change.org to sign the petition.

“Hey you jammers, dreamers, patriots and revolutionaries out there.
Our occupation of Wall Street is less than two weeks away … do we have it together?
The perpetrators of the massive financial fraud have been allowed to  slip quietly from the scene and continue business as usual. Our elected  representatives in Washington have become so tightly intertwined with  the financiers and bankers that public accountability has all but  vanished.
#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is  all about breaking up that cosy relationship between money and politics  and bringing the perpetrators of the financial crash of 2008 to justice.
On September 17, 20,000 of us will descend on Wall Street, the iconic  financial center of America, set up a peaceful encampment, hold a  people’s assembly to decide what our one demand will be, and carry out  an agenda of full-spectrum, absolutely nonviolent civil disobedience the  likes of which the country has not seen since the freedom marches of  the 1960s.
From our encampment we will launch daily smart mob forays all over  lower Manhattan … peaceful, creative happenings in front of Goldman  Sachs; the SEC; the Federal Reserve; the New York Stock Exchange … and  maybe even, if we can figure out where they’re being held, at the sites  of Obama’s private $38,500 per person fundraising events happening  somewhere in Manhattan on Sept. 19 and 20.
Our strategy will be that of the master strategist Sun Tzu: “appear  at points which the enemy must hasten to defend; march swiftly to places  where you are not expected.”
With a bit of luck, and if fate is on our side, we may be able to  turn all of lower Manhattan into a site of passionate democratic  contestation – an American Tahrir Square.
We will do all this with peace in our hearts. Our unshakable  commitment to nonviolence will give us the spiritual strength we need to  inspire the nation and to ultimately triumph in the weeks and maybe  months of struggle that will unfold after September 17.

PS. Last week Anonymous endorsed #OCCUPYWALLSTREET with a video that attracted over 70,000 views. The Department of Homeland Security has warned the nation’s bankers to be prepared. Corporate owned media is taking notice. Yesterday, a columnist for MarketWatch.com posted a rousing portrait of what may now unfold:
“Listen closely. This is not another  internecine political squabble. These revolutionaries are pushing  America back to its roots. You sense they’re drafting a new Declaration  of Independence, driven by the same powerful motivations as the 57  original signers who wrote: ‘Whenever any form of government becomes  destructive … it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,  and to institute new government.’ Back in 1776 King George III was the  destructive force far away. Today greed is the corruptor, from within.”
S17 occupations of financial districts are also being planned in Milan, Madrid, Valencia, London, Lisbon, Athens, San Francisco and hopefully many other cities still to be announced. S17 could well  be the catalyst that ushers in a new global economic order.”~straight Copy-pasta from Adbusters.org «<Check out MORE there))
