In the past week, we’ve seen a nation wide campaign to evict protestors from the Occupy encampments, including the mass arrests in Zucotti Park at the heart of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.  Locally, Portlanders came out in force to support the Occupy movement on Saturday, November 12th,  with the announcement of a midnite eviction by Mayor Sam Adams.  Thousands rallied in the streets to show support and delay an eviction.

Social Security is obviously a non-problem, especially in the middle of the Great Recession.
