What Dallas' Occupiers Should Be Protesting From Their New Camp Downtown

Hey hippies. I know you're pissed off about banks and the man and whatnot. But as this article in Mother Jones points out, you're really missing out on a great opportunity. Everyone's asking you for specifics, so get specific, and make food reform the backbone of your movement. Everyone's gotta eat, and since you guys are chowing down on free grub from Dallas' supportive businesses, food production, distribution and sales, food should be at the forefront of your minds.

MJ focuses on big business and food policy -- banks controlling prices of commodities, pesticide manufactures controlling seed production and the evils of lobbying. But let's get even more specific, and more local. Just look at what chain restaurants have done to the state of Tex-Mex. Think of how many people think a taco looks like this ...

instead of this.....

All because Taco Bell has a bigger advertising budget.

This is way more important than monetary policy and taxation. This effects everything you eat. And unless you subsist mostly on CSA and farmers-market vegetables, it effects everything you cook with as well.

I agree with you 100% and I'm in the 99%. I have been protesting the SAD (standard American diet) since day one. With chemical companies (the 1%) now in charge of almost all the corn, soy, wheat, beef, chicken... and who even knows what else now. This is the big reason why I'm camping. It all starts with diet. You percieve out what you put in. We are very very complex creatures but some things are very simple. I can't even walk into a 711 and get something to drink or snack that is'nt perverted with gassy plastic, gmo, highfruckstrose pornsyrup, hormones, preservatives etc....I was almost asked to leave Tent City several times because I refuse to drink out of plastic bottles. By moving behind City Hall I was wishing the raw food diet would be more popular since one of the stipulations was NO COOKING on the property. If we are going to be there for sixty more days then I think we should give it a try if you would like to fight disease or loose weight or just feel great all day. With the exception of (my favorite cooked food) Krishna's Indian Resturant who have brought us very healthy food every day for lunch. Also thanks to everyone that donated, we love you guys! I have a Diabetes and Cancer cure tent out there where I teach nutrition research from Dr. Gerson and Dr. Robert Cassar. We need alot of locally grown, organic fruits and vegtables for my blenders and juicers so we can keep the protesters at their best.

What's worse; misguided hippies with tons of time, or, that hammered dogshit in pic #2?  I'll take Mr. Bell's, in fact, give me six of them!  And you know those Occupiers eat bean burritos, I bet you it smells like Juarez around that camp about 3 AM.  The other day I saw a rat running AWAY from the Occupiers site.  Best things we can do to help them:

-jobs-take away the weed-razors-soap-REALITY?

#2 looks like a traditional Mexican taco, while Taco Bell had as much to do with defining Tex-Mex as any other American source. Tex-Mex isn't authentic, that's why it's Tex-Mex.

Like it or not, Mr. Bell (his real name) introduced tacos to most Americans.

No onions, no cilantro, add tomatoes and where's the freaking cheese?

I'm going to have to be honest with you on this one SR. That Taco Bell taco looks more appetizing than selection #2.

Gooooo Rangers. My prediction for this series....Rangers in 6...we lose tonight, win tomorrow, win Sat & Sun, and then finish it off on Wednesday on their field. Yes, in one week from today, the Rangers will be World Series Champs.  Best celebratory meal?
