Let us “occupy” our own streetPosted on July 31, 2013

I once read a quote that summed up the problem with the Occupy Wall Street movement very well. It went something like this, “blaming Wall Street for controlling Congress is like blaming the other woman for controlling a cheating husband.” So many on the left (and the “occupy” movement in particular) are looking at the small fry and refuse to look at the real force behind their discontent. Large corporations and industries hire lobbyists for a sound, solid reason and not to just toss money around. They hire lobbyists and toss money around D.C. because the central government of the U.S. is where the power and coersive force is located. They can get protection there. They can get special favors and consideration there. They can get in tight with the seat of corruption.

Massive Marine Reserve Down Under

As of mid-June, a countless number of Australia’s sea creatures will find protection in an unusual place--a proclamation.  Australian Federal Environmental Minister, Tony Burke, has announced that 1.2 million square miles of ocean will be incorporated into a network of marine reserves.


The addition of famous locations such as the Coral Sea, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Unesco World Heritage Site to Australia’s protected areas will contribute to the largest network of marine reserves to date in the world. These protections are set to go into effect by the end of this year, raising the total number of marine reserves in Australia from 27 to 60.
