I Love Time Magazine's Choice For Person of the Year. Us

Time magazine has chosen "The Protester" as Person of the Year.

From the Arab Springs to the "Occupy" movement, those who literally stand up for democracy are being honoured.  Time said it is recognizing protesters because they are “redefining people power” around the world.

"People power".  What a lovely term.  And the nice thing is that just as the word "people" includes those of all ages, cultures and political goals, so too are the protesters.

The 99%.

We rock.


  1. Wonderful!
    Yay, Time Magazine for not being part of the rightwing media, and for recognizing and lauding "people power"!

  2. I bet the editors of Time think their 2011 selection 'resolves' the need for protest, just as the MSM treated Obama's election as if it 'resolved' American racism -- ah, the power of the press in their own minds...
