Live by the media; die by the media. If Kim Kardashian couldn’t get the media to swarm over her there would be no Kim Kardashian. That would make a lot of people happy. And a lot of people would be happy if the Occupy Movement would just go away, too. Well, the 1% would be happy.
But unlike Kim Kardashian, the movement can no longer depend on grabbing media attention by occupying property that belongs to other people in order to get its message out to the public. Now the movement has to do the mundane work of community organizing.
Can the Occupy Movement get the 99% to vote for its own best interests? Only time will tell.
Investing In The 99%
The Old Soldier is working-class and retired. I have few funds to invest in the Occupy Movement; but I want to do my part.
I will be investing more time and a little of my discretionary funds in The Big Idea Bookstore and Cafe. The store carries the only book that I have written. The store is only about six blocks from my apartment building; and most importantly it is owned by the workers, the 99%.
Port Authority To Raise Basic Bus Fare
Here’s some local news. On Sunday the basic fare to ride Port Authority, the public bus transportation system in Allegheny County, will go up to $2.50. The local mainstream media reports that only six other cities in the United States will then have a higher fare for public transportation than the City of Pittsburgh.
