Scenes and Signs from the 'Occupy Seattle' Protest Rally

October 8, 2011 Seattle Washington – Signs of the Times

The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York nearly a month ago has spread like so much GMO crop pollen, with ‘Occupy ________’ (fill in city of your choice) rallies and protests spreading around the country.

No single message has crystallized yet, although there is such a wide base of anger and resentment that one should not be puzzled at this. Currently, the still somewhat leader-less movement seems to be morphing into simply an “occupy everything” movement.

Ferrets? AWESOME! They’re getting more and more popular as pets, and that’s nothing surprising! They’re not so easy to live with — you have to be very patient.
