of course the elites are all connected.

How Steve Jobs befriended Clinton....let the easy credit flow so dumbass Americans waste their money on Apple products by getting more in debt.

'It's hard to travel to see your child when you're President. I've got a place out in the country. You and Hillary can stay there and bring Chelsea and her friends there anytime you want to,'" Clinton recalled.

How the fuck could someone red aldous??   The elites always come together in ways you never expect you just have to look - tony blair being godfather to rupert murdoch's spawn ... it goes on and on , green from me aldous as if that means a fuck.

i love the photos of the depression , they show people like my folks... we were all slaves back then for the elites.. not just the whinging coloureds who try to give me a guilt trip to get more hand outs - get fucked....we were all eating shit, moan at the banksters not us honkeys.

our governments have been investing in sustaining and growing failure, at the expense of investing in potential and success.

pacifying welfare for losers, to useless education, to endless bureaucratic empire-building, to the fucked up bank bailouts and corruption networks operating under the veil of political lobbying, the common thread uniting western government policy has been investment in failure.

it has to change

It could be worse.
The free market system shows the corruption. Dead fish floating tells you something about water quality. Unsustainable --- the irony that solar power was supposed to cure our our economy of unsustainable oil gas and nuke power. Solar is a dead fish floating in a corrupt economy.
With so many "educated" looking for a solution to foist on the rest of us, maybe the solution is no solution. Or better, erase all the solutions that have been enacted for our benifit.
Then the invisible hand will give us our just rewards ratherthan slapping us down. And showing us our mistakes by floating fish.
Fish that the present batch of experts feel the need to resuscitate.
First step let the big banks fail.
2 nd delete all government subsidies into the economy.
Government and economy is a dicotomy.
Sure there will be Henry Fords and Steve Jobs who will gather more riches to themselves than others. The goal of good government is to prevent them through political connection from expanding beyond whatbeyond economic rewards
As Adam Smith stated the uber rich will and must disperse their
Their wealth in a more efficient and beneficial manner than government politicians buying votes with the help of corrupt financiers.
Financiers who are scheming rather than investing and a floating fish that are polluting the economy.

"the uber rich will and must disperse their
Their wealth in a more efficient and beneficial manner" - in your wet dreams

"than government politicians" - if you mean corrupted government politicians, then you have set the bar so low as to be meaniningless; and if you mean any government politician, then you obviously reject the idea democracy could ever succeed.

"buying votes with the help of corrupt financiers" - since when do the financiers not belong to the "uber rich", all of whom use their wealth to influence (bribe) politicians to favor the "uber rich" over everyone else?

Faith in the never-existent "free market" property rights of the "uber rich" is overblown.

I just do not understand people like you.  Stalin murdered more people than Hitler.  Together, they killed tens of millions. How is fascism or marxism the answer?  I'm assuming the other option to capitalism is fascism or marxism.

 

See how other people live in those regimes.  Why would you think that 's the answer.

Unless you're going to wow us with a new economic system no one has seen before, what are you suggesting?

You just want manna to rain down on your smug empty head.  You're a fleabagger.

How many has the US MIC war machine murdered in undeclared "wars"?  How long before they bring those troops home, to maybe do the same here?

Communist systems own (steal, nationalise) the corporations, and everything is run by a small elite.  Under facism, either the major corporations own the government, or they have an "arrangement" with the government, and everything is run by a slightly larger elite.

In USA the anonymous stockholders, of 4-8 corporations own the banks + Fed, most politicians, media, and most other major corporations.  We are run by a small hidden elite oligarchy.  You could call it corporatism or "soft" facism. 

It seems all large systems with a monopoly of force eventually are corrupted and misuse that force.   So far the owners oligarchy has done better than marxism or hard facism, but it seems headed in the same direction.  Perhaps that course can be corrected.  Time will tell, but it does not look good.

Come now, your Dukeness. 'Coloureds'? Have you been savaged by the Brits so long that you've adopted their antiquated spelling? Gone 'native'?

The banksters (dipshit CEOs, realtors, and 'money managers') are "you honkeys".

Follow the money. Do you think the elderly are keeping their Medicare payouts? Don't welfare dollars ALL end up in corporate tills?

Where precisely do you envision these 'losers' finding gainful employment (when they're showing up at 100X the number of positions available)?

You're only a slave if you let them make you so...

On Thursday last Aviva Insurance announced that they were going to pull almost 1000 jobs out of Ireland over the next two years. The CEO said that Irish workers had an attitude of entitlement as he took home a wage package of almost £2million sterling over the previous year. He could probably feed all the families who are about to loose their livelyhoods for one year and he dared to make that comment. The top .01% are soo out of touch it is truly frightening.

...let the easy credit flow so dumbass Americans waste their money on Apple products by getting more in debt.

Meanwhile most of those Apple products are made in China by Foxcomm using workers who are paid about $10 per day.  The workers are unhappy with wages and conditions.   Many worker suicides have occurred.  Foxcomm's plan is to replace the ungrateful workers with robots.

Behind OWS? Meet the Marxist spawn of Frances Fox Piven who wants a militant revolution

The current meme among the media elites is that the Occupy Wall Street protests are an organic and spontaneous movement created by college-aged students who are frustrated with the cost of student loans, housing, health care and overall corporate greed.

If that were true I’d like to state the obvious, that behind every student is a teacher.

Meet Professor John Asimakopoulos (for purposes of this article we’ll call him Dr. John). He is an associate professor of sociology at the City University of New York-Bronx where he works beside Marxist revolutionary Frances Fox Piven, the quickly aging and fragile grandmother who is best known for being one-half of the Cloward and Piven strategy. Dr. John has also been published alongside other famous Marxists intellectuals such as Howard Zinn, Ward Churchill, and Bill Ayers, advisor to/lifelong friend of/acquaintance of/not associated with President Obama. Among Dr John’s 2,000+ Facebook friends are Wade Radthke from ACORN, Cindy Sheehan, an anti-war activist, and Lisa Fithian, one of the leading organizers of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

OWS: The Perestroika Deception Develops a Face

In recent weeks, every American has watched with morbid curiosity as swarms of hate-filled, sputtering communist loons and Hippie-wannabees have taken to the streets, shutting down cities and leaving a path of destruction wherever they go.  Although many Americans disagree with the stated agenda of these radicals, most think them harmless, dismissing their acts as pathetic attempts to resurrect the failed social movements of the sixties.

But this group of determined radicals is not to be laughed at.  Lisa Fithian, the primary OWS organizer, is an unrepentant communist and proponent of government and economic destabilization as a means of achieving totalitarian centralization along communist lines.  Writing for a socialist rag, Fithian once stated, “I have no issue with property destruction…We’re in a society where property is idolized, so a lot of people don’t get it yet that it doesn’t really matter.”

While this should shock Americans (and would, if the facts were being reported) this is nothing new.  This is just the latest tactic in a long-term strategy that has been quietly moving forward for decade...

Lech Walesa Not Attending #OccupyWallStreet in New York After Discovering Hard-Left Organizers

 

The Polish champion of freedom and liberty, founder of Solidarity, winner of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize, and first President of modern Poland Lech Walesa had been rumored to possibly be traveling to New York to stand with Occupy Wall Street protesters.

 

Based on our discussion and intervention, President Walesa is not going to get involved with the OWS.  He is not comfortable with the “organizations” behind the movement.

 

This spring, when President Obama visited Poland, President Walesa refused to meet with him.

 

America is a center-right country politically.  The Occupy movement, at its core, is a hard-left movement. If successful, America would cease to be governed on our founding principles of freedom and liberty. Thus, we react to the news that Lech Walesa will not support the OWS movement with much thankfulness...

How bout offering up something a good ol Patriot would demand.  A return to Constitutional Law, Freedom for the individual, Equal Justice for All, Small limited govt, Rule of Law, a free market. A country where honesty and integrity rule the day and corruption is not tolerated.   I know I am dreaming, my guess is that none of you even think this idea would work to begin with, not to mention it would'nt be worth trying because you would lose what you have, you know like free things from the gov,t. That being more important to you than freedom and liberty and all. So I say we are indeed in big trouble with no way out. You'll see to it that it gets worse for all, your hell  on earth that will come of you ignoring freedom and Liberty.   Nuff said

Sure I'm all about freedom from bankster bailouts, less taxes for the middle class too.

How about if you work more than 1 year, you pay 15% income tax just like the long term capital gains tax?

 

“In the land of the free they tax me but not G.E.!”

 

I don't see Tea Party protesting like this, but they should. GE and GM got bailed out for messing around in exotic financials instead of manufacturing.

Taxes are so over done.
As Bachman pointed out the Gov spends 40% more than it takes in.
The gov does not come hat in hand begging the tax payer for this money.
This was the constitutional method. This is the basis for government of the people. The snakey pols have to beg for money.
No longer.
The banks can create money out of thin air. And every thing the touch turns to paper gold. And now they touch the workings of the free economy and turn it to paper gold. Worthless. They will mourn what they have done when the bullies take over.
But we the people were seduced, it wasn't the first time, it sounded so good the gov could spend and spend without begging us for more and more
Now they don't need us
They control their own purse strings
Rather than pandering to the taxpayer they pander to the non taxpayer who votes. And creates a false economy to care for their needs.
What did we expect from them. After all pols have their own self interest at heart.

A return to Constitutional Law, Freedom for the individual, Equal Justice for All, Small limited govt, Rule of Law, a free market.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Language as a means to connect with reality is degrading in the US world order. As usual, US citizens want to see the causes everywhere but where they lie: it is low IQ people, migrants, public education etc...

Now lets look at the quoted sentence.

A return. Okay.

It implies the following, a start, an origin, an already existing state, condition etc...

So question: When,where for Constitutional Law, Freedom for the individual, Equal Justice for All, Small limited govt, Rule of Law, a free market?

The tearing down of language as a means to connect to reality has little to do with public education, IQ etc...

It has most to do with US citizenism and US citizens thriving on propaganda. They keep distorting words in order to propagate their twisted rewriting of basic events.

Please feel free to tell when and where for enable that return.

TrulyBelieving's picture

It's easy to know what enables a return to Constitutional Law. The fact you don't know tells me it would be a waste of time explaining. Instead, for more understanding start by getting a dictionary and look up the word 'parasite' then apply that definition to yourself.

I know, right?

I usually don't have time for these multi-page, spam, junk-blast posts, but that Q tool posted the same list a couple of days ago, and it looked like it might actually be a REAL list of demands, so I made the time to read it. It actually looks reasonable!

And since the main issue against the demands will end up being 'its too expensive', here is a list of cuts to pay for it;

'obamacare' goes away since there is now medicare for all. (saves roughly 10% GDP annually)

Cut DHS, a massive do-nothing.

Expire the bush tax cuts.

Well, you get the idea.

Basically get rid of massive government and corporate subsidies and subsidise the US citizens instead.

Quixotic_Not, Howdy,

Proposed List Of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement! (User Submitted)

Posted Sept. 25, 2011, 3:46 p.m. EST (27 days ago) by anonymous

Admin note: This is not an official list of demands. This is a forum post submitted by a single user and hyped by irresponsible news/commentary agencies like Fox News and Mises.org. This content was not published by the OccupyWallSt.org collective, nor was it ever proposed or agreed to on a consensus basis with the NYC General Assembly.

Do you mean the post that only linked to an article?  An article whose first two sentences are:

"The official OWS website posted the “demands” of a supporter a few days ago. It is not certain if the demands posted below represent the agreed upon consensus of the movement"

????? 

So it indeed did include "this important and relevant bit of information."

 

Your claim that these details were ommitted, when they are in the first two sentences, "suggests that you are a troll/shill/sad purveyor of lies and a less than skilled sockpuppet."

 

You're not only "less than skilled" but a morally inept and incompetent cheap whore of disinformation.  Take your propaganda and fuck off.
