"That may have been a small one for Neil but its a big one for me !!"
Pete Conrad, Commander of Apollo 12 and third man on the moon. At 5'6 he was one of the shortest Astronauts in the programme.
Background to the quote, He arranged to say this months before the mission when an Italian journalist said that Neil Armstrongs words were scripted by NASA. He told the journalist this is what he would say and bet $500 he would, the journalist never paid up. Pete died in 1991 after a bike crash in a place the native americans call ojai, or moon. His personal motto was "If you cant be good be colourful" [Edited by OL to remove personal content by the posts author who is not OL]

Well I was helping my gf out as she has just recently moved into her new flat interstate from me.
I was clearing and cleaning up boxes of stuff and having completed that I noticed that her kichen was rather messy and so instictively I said ...
"Sweety ... I am going to Occupy your kitchen and Liberate your sink!"
And she laughed and said OK!
Now OL is quite a self absorbed person and I immediately self assesed what I had just said ... in light of where I got that from and how it may apply to what I read on ATS and what is going on in the wider global community etc.
The 'saying' comes from a Kinky Friedman's song that is quite mysogynistic in tone and nature and that exposes some of my personal inherent temperments! [ yes .. I know I am a monster .. now you do too ]
In regards to how it may apply to what I read on ATS, it made me think that just Occupying wasn't going to be enough and that it needs to be taken to a new level of confidence and power! [Anybody remember Asterix and Getafix? ]
And as far has how it may apply to the wider global community ... well we are certainly inmates unfairly imprisoned on a prison planet and surely do need to be liberated and I think this is an obvious conclusion since there are no fire escapes up and off this planet in case of emergency.
I am not an Occupier ... my job is not to box and or wrestle on with TPTB in the ring.
But OL is in the Occupy corner and I am not willing to see Occupy's corner throw the towel in just yet!
So yeah the1st round got a bit bloody ... and I am no Blood Dr and Im not Occupy's coach and or manger [waves hi to Anon how and hail .. I am bit a simple fan ... and I am standing up and cheering Occupy on as best I can!
Come on Occupy .. YOU CAN DO IT!
Pull out the peoples elbow move and ROCK TPTB!
Time to Liberate and BE WINNING!
What do you have to say about that?
Personal Disclosure: It doesn't matter what you have to say about that gibroni ... as this is spam lol
P.S. The Secret to the Liberate movement will be ...
