Memphis Earlene and I attempt to have a Serious Political Discussion without resorting to buzzwords or cheap shots.
“A big difference between my generation and Occupy Wall Street is no one’s trying to blow up the Bank of America building to make a statement. Instead they’re closing out their accounts,” I say. “Much more effective. ”
Latest headline, straight from Daily Kos, my new preferred source: “Occupy Atlanta Encamps in Neighborhood to Save Police Officer’s Home from Foreclosure.”
Yeah, Police are still beating up demonstrators, but no one’s screaming Off the Pig.
“Don’t bad mouth the Sixties,” Memphis Earlene says. “Not everyone was an asshole.”
