1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

Anti-NATO protestors gathered near McCormick Place, the site of the largest NATO summit in the organization’s six-decade history.

Loukanikos — the word means sausage in Greek — has showed up for numerous demonstrations in Athens over the last few years. Here are some photos taken of him. More…
Vibe is like Twitter, but with some major differences that make it an ideal choice for protest groups. Users don’t have to register and can anonymously post the tweet-like messages, determining how far they travel since the technology is location-based.
We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

Many of the links on the OccupyTogether.org are bad – plus they keep changing the site around so it is becoming rather difficult to maneuver. Therefore, I have gone through each state on Facebook and located some of the key Facebook pages. I am sure there are more, but these are good starting places. See list below.

When I logged on this morning, still groggy with my first cup of coffee barely touched, I was flabbergasted to see the enormous changes in Facebook… as were my friends.

An estimated 20,000 protestors took to the streets in uproar over the market. Description in the Occupied London blog:
