The only thing that I can think of that would really make this OWSer movie spectacular is a long, drawn out, legal battle over who gets the profits. Wouldn’t that be grand? And before you predict that there will be no profits, think again. It is likely that every public school in the country will buy the movie to be used as a Democrat indoctrination tool on the students under the guise of “social justice.” There will be corporate advertisers hoping to protect themselves from the wrath of the OWSers, and there will money coming from the mega wealthy lefties hoping to deflect the label of “The One Percent.” Hollywood liberals will support it, too, because as One Percenters, they must protect themselves from the wrath of the 99% mob.
Here’s a screenshot of the casting call for OWSers as it was posted on their site, which The Morning Spew has previously dubbed, The Wall Street Website of Tears. (You can some read our earlier Wall Street Website of Tears posts here).
Here’s the casting call:
From “We are the 99%“
I wonder if Ms. Bobbi Jo Hart will include the violence and incitement to violence perpetuated and endorsed by the 99 %? Like this and this and this?
It appears to me that the author could be a little biased, and I wonder if he has read about some of the other 99% occupiers’ activities or John Nolte’s occupy crime and violence running tally here.
Personally, I kinda think the Occupy freaks will actually win Time’s Person of the Year. What do you think?

Who Should Be TIME’s Person of the Year 2011?
by Nate Rawlings
From tsunamis to budget battles to revolutions, 2011 has been a tumultuous, news-packed year. Who influenced the news most, for better or for ill? Tradition dictates that TIME’s editors choose the Person of the Year, but we want to know: if you were in charge, who would it be? And remember, a person’s inclusion as a ‘candidate’ in the poll doesn’t mean he, she or they are serious candidates to be named Person of the Year by the magazine.
On Sept. 17, about 2,000 people amassed on Wall Street to protest corporate greed and influence in government. They didn’t succeed in occupying all of the financial district, or even all of Wall Street, but they have taken and held a small urban park in lower Manhattan around the corner from Ground Zero. In the early weeks of the demonstrations, a core group of protesters set up a complex tent city from which they organized large marches and rallied around the slogan “We are the 99%.” The movement has since gone national, with rallies and “occupations” in dozens of cities across the U.S., from Oakland, where confrontations with the police became violent, to Atlanta, where protesters expanded the group’s mandate by occupying a house to prevent a bank from taking it in foreclosure.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
WE, THE NINETY-NINE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, in order to form a more perfect Union, by, for and of the PEOPLE, shall elect and convene a NATIONAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY beginning on July 4, 2012 in the City Of Philadelphia.
I. Election of Delegates:
The People, consisting of all United States citizens who have reached the age of 18, regardless of party affiliation and voter registration status, shall elect Two Delegates, one male and one female, by direct vote, from each of the existing 435 Congressional Districts to represent the People at the NATIONAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY in Philadelphia. Said Assembly shall convene on July 4, 2012 in the city of Philadelphia.
The office of Delegate shall be open to all United States citizens who have reached the age of 18. Election Committees, elected by local General Assemblies from all over the United States, shall coordinate with the 99 Percent Declaration Working Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/the99declaration/) to organize, coordinate and fund this national election by direct democratic voting. The Election Committees shall operate similarly to the original Committees of Correspondence during the first American Revolution.

Below is a suggested list of grievances respectfully submitted by the OWS Working Group on the 99% Declaration. The final version of the PETITION OF GRIEVANCES voted upon by the Delegates of the National General Assembly MAY or MAY NOT include the following suggested issues:
there is more but you’ll have to go here to read it.
Quite honestly, with the exception of the folks with health problems, I am sick of hearing these people whine because they made stupid decisions or don’t want to start at the bottom and work their way up. What do you think when you read these stories? Any hidden messages that pop out at you? Put ’em in the comments! We want to know what you are thinking.
If I were Nancy Pelosi, I would be a little torn right now. How does one come out in support of the Occupy Wall Street Protesters, as Pelosi recently did, and at the same time meet one’s obligations to those same banks which, according to an article in The Daily Caller, gave your son preferential treatment as a means to forge political alliances? Tough one.
From The Daily Caller
“Paul Pelosi, Jr., the son of Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House, worked as a mortgage broker and sales manager at a Countrywide office in San Mateo, California,” Morgenson and Rosner wrote in the book. “In 2007, when the company was on the ropes and beginning a mass of layoffs, Pelosi’s name was on the list of those to be cut. According to a former executive with knowledge of the situation, [Countrywide CEO Angelo] Mozilo personally removed Pelosi’s name from the list.”
According to Morgenson and Rosner, Countrywide was able to make political alliances with people like Pelosi through favors like this.
Well, I am sure Nancy has an explanation and will let us know shortly. Anyway, it is good to see Nancy down and dirty with the protesters.
Yet another entry from the Wall Street Website of Tears. I ask you, what happened in November of 2008? It’s good to know that some of these 99% are coming to their senses.
