The biggest holiday in the old Soviet Unions was May 1, “May Day”. It was a celebration of the worker—actually, the enslavement of the workers.
Now our home grown terrorists, a gang calling themselves ”Occupiers” has joined with unions to try to close down the United States on May 1.
~ Advising their minions NOT to go to School or Work Tuesday…
In their own words, “For thirty-one magical days beginning this Tuesday, May 1, we take the plunge and Strike! Occupy the Golden Gate Bridge: We block the Golden Gate Bridge; occupy a Manhattan-bound tunnel; seize the ports. In 135 cities, we march into banks, erect tents and refuse to leave. We disrupt financial institutions forcing thousands to preemptively close. Five thousand of us pray, dance, sleep on Wall Street and in front of the Fed and if the Bloombergs of the world bring out paramilitary police to intimidate us, we use our social media fire to call out 50,000 more occupiers and intimidate them right back.”

A few weeks ago the AFL-CIO held a three day national training session for “leaders’ of the Gang. The purpose was to teach them how to take over buildings and government facilities—and private property to claim it for themselves—as squatters.
This is what we know.
In San Francisco the unions and Occupiers are going to try to close down the Golden Gate Bridge. If successful they will cause tens of thousands of workers to not get a paycheck. The union goal apparently is to harm decent workers.
In the Sacramento area the California Nurses Association, for the third time this year, is going to force the closing of ten hospitals for a day. For the very sick, the elderly and the young, even a couple of hours could cause harm or death. This is a greedy union consisting of bribe payers and those who care not a whit about the health or safety of patients. They want the contract they want, regardless of the cost; even losing lives would be OK in the pursuit of a bullied contract.
In New York, the true goal is to close all the tunnels and bridges leading into New York City. If successful, millions of people will not get to work and hundreds of thousands will lose a days pay—the Gang and the unions demand the poor be poorer.
In downtown Los Angeles the Occupier Gang and illegal aliens are going to march in the streets, to disrupt traffic—at 5:00pm! The bigger question is with traffic so bad anyway in downtown LA, how will we know if the illegal aliens and gangs are successful? Of course, this would be a great place for ICE to arrest illegal aliens—at least this could be a positive for the community.
What is the purpose of celebrating this Soviet Union Holiday? The real goal is to try to get the police to ”riot”. “Riot”? In leftist language that means forcing the cops to arrest criminals—something the LA, Oakland and San Fran police don’t do if the Occupier Gang is involved (which is mostly white—racism). Crips, Bloods or Mexican mafia would be arrested—but the almost all white (elitist) Occupiers almost always get the charges dropped, so why arrest them—or stop them from holding property and businesses hostage?
On May 1 watch to see if the police do their job? Watch to see how many criminals, illegal aliens bullying unionists, Occupier Gang members actually show up. Maybe this is just another Leftist publicity stunt.
Think of it this way—if this was organized by the Tea Parties, our jails would be filled. The Occupiers took over whole swaths of New York, LA, San Fan, Oakland and dozens of other cities for weeks—yet the jails were empty.
Demand arrests and the police enforce the law—or demand they resign for dereliction of duty. What do you think? Happy May Day, Stalin must be proud.

Occupy Spring Begins:
The Nation magazine is doing its best to reignite The Occupy Movement with a video from leftist hero Frances Fox Piven “It’s been time for another surge from the bottom for quite a while and some of us have been waiting…”
