The Fourth of July

Click image to enlarge

And in between reading those headline news of the day, I somehow find myself blogging about that patriotic red, white and blue of a holiday the 4th of July for some reason or another. And boy does that infographic that finds itself posted above have some really interesting facts and statistics to say about all things fourth of July with all of its red, white and blue colors and flags that are waving around in it. And in between those bar b ques and firework displays, one can read some really interesting numbers from that infographic such as the estimated U.S. population July 4th, 2011, the number of U.S. flags that are made in China, now that's an interesting one, the amount of patriotic perishables from those barbecues and much much more. Oh, if you are at one of those parties on that July fourth day, consider the environment. Consider reusing your cup or your plastic bag. Go Green for a sustainable future, it's the new thing. Power To The People. Have a great beach barbecueing, travels, picnics, July 4th holiday and more.

Occupy Street Art

Okay, so in all blogger honesty, this blagh post doesn't exactly have anything to do with Occupy with Art. It's just that I find myself with that bloggers block again in my attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever web 2.0 social media user generated content possible. And that photo of that Brooklyn Street Art with those artists from Brooklyn that finds itself posted above has some really cool graffiti colors in it. And is that one of those Instagram photos that seems to be transforming everyone's photos these days? And so in all blogger honesty again, between that mortgage meltdown that still seems to be melting down, that economic recession and impending depression and that Google page rank update, it seems as if I have been finding myself in search of a fifth full time job a lot lately in my internetaholicness. Have a great Occupy Art day and more.

Occupy A Caravan

And if I must blogger say on this Occupy Wall Street day 278 of a day, that Eric Drooker photo that finds itself posted above as part of that Occupy Caravan, Occupy Wall Street, Occupy The World event sure looks  Occupy Wall Street colorful cool. And that Occupy Caravan facebook photo that I came across throughout my internet travels on this day reads something like:

"Occupy Mississippi: Occupy Caravan will be coming through Jackson!! Great time to meet occupiers from all over the country and get involved (or back into) the movement! We will post more details as soon as they become available!"  And that text from that poster that finds itself posted above reads something like: "Occupy Caravan. Twenty days, one hundred cities, one historic journey. Thousand of miles across our nations heartland. June 11th.  Bring tents. June 30th. Occupy National Gathering.  Our final destination.  Our nations birthplace. July 4th, 2012. Philadelphia, PA. Occupy National Gathering. Five days of peace, love and democracy. #NATGAT.  Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

Occupy Wall Street Again

So what's going on with Occupy Wall Street? And the reason why I'm blogger wondering what's going on with Occupy Wall Street is because I can't find anything else to web 2.0 user generated content blaghers block post about on this bloggers block day except Occupy Wall Street. And it was either post that Ode To Blogging post again for when that Google page rank update wants to send me in search of a fifth full time job or post about Occupy Wall Street. And so I decided to go with Occupy Wall Street, because hey, they seem to have stuff going on all the time these Occupy Together global revolution days. And so the following seems to find itself as one of the recent posts on their page. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

 June 30 - July 4: Occupy National Gathering in Philadelphia .

The Occupy National Gathering is a nationally coordinated event which will take place from June 30th to July 4th in Philadelphia. The Occupy movement will convene the Occupy National Gathering in the vicinity of Philadelphia’s Independence Mall for a week of direct actions, movement building and the creation of a vision for a democratic future. The National Gathering will kick off with a massive march with Healthcare-Now! and will conclude on July 5th when attendees will join the Guitarmy for a 99 mile march from Philadelphia to Wall Street in Lower Manhattan.

Perhaps the highlight of the gathering will be the crafting of a Vision of a Democratic Future. On July 4th the National Gathering (#natgat) will facilitate a visioning process designed to allow all voices to be heard while allowing repeat visions to organically rise to the top. Together, by all those who choose to participate, a Vision of a Democratic Future will be conceived. Learn more about this and more here.
