    I am in Washington DC for the Take Back The American Dream Conference 2011 with the founder of Coffee Party USA Annabel Parks and filmmaker Eric Byler also a Coffee Party board member. We decided to go down to McPherson Square where some young people were effecting the growing Occupy movement that got started with the OccupyWallstreet movement permeating the entire country however unreported by the mainstream media.

    I must admit to be blown away when I saw the organization that had gone into spontaneously building a working community with functional departments. I could not help but think how America is failing our youth. They are unemployed and underemployed as our country has ceased the necessary investment in our own country in order to guarantee them all a job.


    Our corporations and corporate controlled government better wake up lest The Arab Spring may just become the American Autumn. Would it not be funny if it was the oppressed Arabs that were the catalyst for the free Americans to attain true freedom.
