OCCUPY ECON 101 
Students stage walk-out on Harvard Prof.
When a science is dying, disciples begin to refuse initiation.
This is what happened last Wednesday in the class of Harvard economics professor Gregory Mankiw, with these simple  opening words: “Today, we are walking out of your class.”
The rejection of Mankiw’s class is only a single event in the class of one  professor, and yet this refusal may prove to be an event with a much wider  significance. Mankiw’s econ 101 textbook, Principles of Economics, has  made it into the minds of almost every economics student in the modern world and  if the students of Mankiw can revolt, then it is possible that students  everywhere can begin the task of rethinking the dysfunctional old neoclassical  paradigm.
In response to the walk-out, Mankiw has only doubled  down his orthodoxy, claiming that the 1% have suffered more than the 99% as  a result of the recession. Now is the time for a global walk-out. Download a  poster of the True Cost Economics Manifesto at kickitover.org and pin it up in the corridor  of your department. Let’s start an all out meme war against our neoclassical  profs and begin the daunting task of ushering in a new bionomic, psychonomic,  ecological economics paradigm.
Now is a good time to begin an escalation and turn the whole world into a  grand economics department … to occupy it.

fuck this guy

Oh yes, I am sure they are crying on their piles of money and healthcare while the rest of us simply skip-a-dee enjoy not going to the doctor and being able to afford basic necessities.  I mean, really.  This isn’t suffering.  Its fucking fun times.

I am an American.I pay taxes.I worked.I was the guy who worked in his field for 20 years, until the economy collapsed.Then I was the guy who brought you your pizza. You know, a job? Not employment?
Then I got cancer.
Minimum wage and part-time insurance meant I needed Arizona’s welfare, AHCCCS (Access), or I needed to gather my affairs.Minimum wage meant I made too much money, according to Access, and I was denied Access.Cancer solved the problem and removed my ability to work.Access approved.
Despite what you’ve been told, the hospital will turn you away if you’re broke.Despite what you’ve been told, churches and private institutions will not pay your medical expenses.
I was diagnosed April 1st, 2011 and had major surgery on May 12th.I am still recovering from radiation and chemo treatments ended in August.I am alive because I’m unemployed.
Does any of this make sense?
I am the 99%
