They'll just steal more to cover the taxes.  

Getting rid of them is the only real cure.

It can't be imported, it would have to be manufacured domestically.

People are starting to hold those in power accountable.

Someone has to do it.

The riots are not about accountability, its about their desire to suck on the government teet a little longer despite the fact there is no more fiat money to go around.

 

Here in CA we are just beginning to see what happens when unions cannot keep their lavish pay and benefits.

Exactly.  Globally, the bankers have been paid off for the loses which are put onto the backs of the people.  The people then get hit with austerity.  Austerity would not be needed if the banksters did not empty the coffers.  Goldman plays a large role in this Greek Tragedy.

This is not socialism versus capitalism.  This is the serfs vs. the banksters.  I wish people would wake the fuck up.  Of all places I though ZH would be pretty consumed with those paying attention.  Assjack above you just proved that assumption wrong.

+10. Agree 100%.

But if you are looking for progressive thinkers, ZH may not be the right place. Seems to be an equal number of "Fair Playing Field" vs "Greed is Good" types here.

Much easier to blame the victims of rape than to blame the aggressor.  Paper money is the vehicle that gives the population the ability to argue on the edges of a problem rather than go after the root cause.  If sound money were around - a one world currency I could agree with - then the politicians couldn't hand out so much corporate welfare and could instead look after its own.

I am all for a New World Order if that included sound money, sound banking, and true sovereignty.

So what is the "lavish pay and benefits" in CA?

We found out in WI that teachers make $40-50K a year. Which ain't lavish in my book. And that was after all the politicans equated teachers with Satan.

That doesn't include the value of the promised benefits that the teachers collectively bargained for witht he politicians they elected.

Add those in and how much to WI really make?

(BTW, my wife was a WI teacher.)

Missionsdweller:

Get a grip and get off the neocon/liberal bullshit wagon.

You are basing your self-esteem on a fantasy of self-reliance while all the freedoms and rights of said fantasy have been rescinded and trampled.

Figure it out before someone figures it out for you.

I don't think that'll happen on such a large scale in north america. The culture of entitlement on state largesses is not as bad as it is in Greece.

Wisconsin: this is the next step, and it's a baby step from what has already occurred there.  Take away the free shit from the dependency class?  Riots, baby!

The party will begin shortly.  Got PT?

Edit: road march tonight.  Thanks for the motivation.

Yep, but you don't see dip shit Walker attacking welfare, food stamps or subsidized housing, he attacks workers. He's not against the hand out plantation, he wants to put more of us on it.

Federal workers seem to survive w/o collectively bargained benefits. Or is Obama attacking workers too by letting that travesty continue? Why can't workers in borderline insolvent states get by with Federal work rules?
