". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Gub Walker Gets Mike Checked! Plus Oakland's Mayor & the Cops

For whatever reason stupid blogger isn't putting in YouTubes.

Go here because it is a powerful action to watch unfolding.  The participants did some strong work in planning the infiltration.  Only fair, yes, since the cops and Others are forever planting criminals and provocateurs into the Occupy Wall Street actions to cause violence.

As with the Oakland cops who hate the mayor and have overtly said they will use this to take her out.  She defeated Their Guy, who was in cops pockets, and has gotten the cops to pay more out of their pockets into their pensions.  This, according to a friend of ours reporting in from Oakland where he's lived for many years.

We have so many different security and police forces now, they are wagging the national dog for sure.  Can we mike check Praetorian Guard?
