#OCCUPYXMAS begins

Here comes the new Normal.

This years’ Black Friday was a resounding success. Fifty-five billion dollars chimed through cash registers across the USA. Two hundred and fifty-thousand people went into the malls and spent on average 400 hundred dollars each, the biggest shopping day ever. Some notable purchases included ten limited edition Ferraris with matching luggage from Neiman Marcus’s exclusive holiday catalogue, $395,000 each, gobbled up in under an hour.

We in the 99%, alongside our sympathetic friends in the 1%, need to challenge this “normal” way of doing Xmas and come up with a new normal. The holidays need another paradigm.

So what are we occupiers going to do different this season? For starters, we’re going to take the personal plunge and move our money. We’re going to take it away from the big banks and put it into our local credit unions. And that will be the one great first step in breaking beyond the encampments and into the new Xmas imagination.

Shop locally. No one needs our money more, and purchasing from local retailers helps drive the economy in the right direction - which is away from the big businesses. Ma and Pa gift shops, clothing and food. Keep the money out of big business hands and put into your local small businesses. I didn't shop black friday, but mostly because I didn't have anything to spend anyway :P. hehe.

Peace, folks!

Shopping has become a "distraction" from becoming more like the Savior himself, he did not 'go shopping' as a matter of fact he "DID NOT NEED TO" for he could "speak the word" and it happened, like he did when he multiplied fishes and loaves, but the kings "play a Zero Sum GAME" for they do not know how to "multiply wealth" they only know how to "steal it from others" and then they "multiply the wealth" if you so will, by investing it in the markets, or better yet, by "running the markets" so that they can "ruin the middle class" as Jason Alan Jankowsky clearly put it in the Art of the Trade, putting out all these "loser manuals" whereby they can "lure an unsuspecting public" into the market and then take their money I have watched the market for the last 20 years or so of my life, and it seems unpredictable, but you can almost count on it, that when you invest a few bucks in a stock, that stock is "heading nowhere but down" and that is 'how the kings' take your money they make you the loser so that they can win!

I do not go by these "loser manuals" I have checked out all their methods and they no longer work, since they are all "public knowledge" but I have developped my own "proprietary trading method" that is a "trade secret" or TRADING SECRET and some of it, I developped from the advice of a "gambler" who was banished from all US casinos, because he "broke the bank"!

That is why the "kings hate me" because I figured out their evil secrets and I am letting people know these kings of Wall Street are not "philanthropists" unless of course you consider the "ADVOCATING" and the sponsorship of evil Nazi dictatorships a "CHARITABLE ACT"!

These people of the "mystic tie" have established evil dictatorships and ruling classes all over the planet, and these are also people we will have to fight in order to bring "CHRIST BACK INTO CHRISTMAS" again, and quite frankly the "SPIRIT OF CHRIST" is the spirit of giving but remember Christ never handed anyone a "paycheck" and said go by yourself or your relatives a present, no he gave gifts that are "priceless", a SEEING EYE,
a restored limb, a healthy body and a "restored soul" these are the "real gifts" and these gifts money cannot buy, sure you can "get a replica" like a "machine tool" that will imitate the movement of a hand, and become like a "Darth Vader" creature a "bionic man" but you cannot currently "except through transplant" from an other dead body obtain the real thing, for man has not yet been able to "grow organs" even though no doubt they are working on that with "stem cell research"!

Christmas is billion dollars business time for the rich. It has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus who belonged to the 99% folks.

"So what are we occupiers going to do different this season? For starters, we’re going to take the personal plunge and move our money."

Done that...

And then, I ignore xmas. Too bad it won't go away.

But...

Buy local.
Buy from local artists.

What, something about how large of a circle fro your community that you want to stay in? You decide how large you want this circle to be.

But "local" can be from any city in the U.S., with the interwebs and fast shipping these day. And, what about buying "local" crafts made in, say, Africa? See?

Let us make this more complicated than it should be, though. Ha ha. Only serious.

"Prove it." Bang!

Here is an idea, instead of "spending money on consumer goods" why not "consume Wall Street" instead, or "buy up Wall Street" with the money we save on Christman gifts?

I will give you an address or a place to send your contribution and I will personally invest all your money in GOLDMAN SACHS BONDS, in ISRG, and other good solid stocks, that will grow to give your movement a continued stream of funds, whereby to "purchase more tents" and more sleeping bags to keep people warm and to supply the movement with sufficient means to keep on going at least until the "INTERNATIONAL MASON, THE WORLD's foremost problem" is going to be published also any contributions that you do make could be used to "purchase the book" thereby giving you an opportunity to share your "distaste for evil piracy" committed in the name of the "British aristocrat fat cat bankers" as President Obama puts it!

THE BRITISH OVERLORDS could no longer "openly rule our country" so they went through an underhanded method and "established a system of philanthropy" that enforced their "secret rule "for according to the bible, he who borrows from the system, becomes its slave, and many people "go into debt" to the kings in order to "buy presents for their children" this is clearly bogus! The borrower is the "slave of the lender" it clearly states in the new world Translation of the Bible, I think the Jehovah Witnesses are doing us all a favor by "calling it indeed" a system of "slavery" for indeed it is if you do not pay your "rent, your mortgage or anything else you owe something on" you no longer will be able to use but will lose it, and someone else will enjoy the good thing you had, if you consider either consumer goods or cars good things that is, I personally consider all CONSUMER GOODS, deflections to the path of "moral virtue" because when I asked one 86 year old mason to assist me financially he stated, I would but have to do more "payments on my Cadillac" which clearly proved where his heart really was, and showed me that he cared more for that car than he cared for "either me or God"!

This makes the kings "not into a Santa Claus" but rather a "different kind of SC", it also has the same initials but it is "known as a Secret Combination"!

By investing your money with me you will have a "consistent source of ANTI KINGMAN INCOME" that could also be used to "privately defend" anyone that has been "falsely accused" of "resisting a benevolent charity" that only wants the best for everyone if indeed "freemasonry" was promoting the happiness or the welfare of mankind, then why would they have to be sworn to secrecy" under the penalty of death, this clearly does not make sense, the real reason of course is that these kings own the world ,and have "stolen fom it" from the very beginning when CAIN stole the flocks of his brother after he killed him first! The only time a "public defender" was doing me any good is when he gave me $20 to get me on the way to Washington DC, where I warned President Obama about this "secret scourge of mankind"!

THAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE FRATERNITY, known as "FREEMASONRY", this is not commonly known, but it is clearly stated in the "RITE OF MIZRAIM" key word of the encyclopedia of Freemasonry where Lamech and Jubal are mentioned as "members of the RITE OF MIZRAIM" of freemasonry, when I asked a mason what these "ancient murderers" had to do with Freemasonry he stated:

OH, YOU ARE A FANATIC!
