sure...but the point about Mike Moore stands.

The Tea Party BOOED OFF THE STAGE the career repugnicons who didn't represent them.  And they voted them out.  That's the difference between the iPod protestors and TP

and the tea partiers knew they would not be seen as "cool" while making their stand by the msm, either.  how many protestors in NY now are rthere because its the cool place to be but don't have a clue?

back to krieger's point, though.   educate them?   ok, but 18 + years of liberal brainwashing from academia and the media can't be undone in a NY weekend.   though on the bright side it's probably a great place to get laid right about now...

What’s all the uproar?
It seems that most of Americans never bothered themselves to learn living within their means, save some money, plan for the future, get a decent education and avoid credit at all.

The blame must be placed specifically on the so-called Baby Boomers, a failed generation who really enjoyed the prosperity of the 50s and 60s; instead, they focused all of their deprived intellect in experimenting with all types of drugs and having very promiscuous sexual lives. These people have done nothing for this country and now they are so scared of potentially not being able to collect their government entitlements (paradoxically, they are the majority).

Therefore, America as a broken society is now paying the consequences of its own greed, lack of common sense and stupidity.

Someone said that Americans are just a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. The sooner the US economy collapses the better, so the ignorant populace will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means – and stop blaming the government, since they don’t give a crap about people’s grievances.

Finally, educate yourselves about National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD 51, because Martial Law will be implemented in the United States due to the ongoing social unrest – and most Americans do not have a single clue of what this means.

(cue a petulent Obama, stomping his foot in dismay at TV coverage of NYC protesters): "Wall Street, Wall Street, Wall Street!  Why is it always about Wall Street, and not ME?"

Michael Moore is right. Capitalism is dead - politicians have learned that the market is incapable of regulating itself and that free markets simply don't work. The government had to bail out the banks because of their inability to manage risk properly, so the only solution is to impose tighter regulations and price controls to give POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE. The PROGRESSIVE REVOLUTION is here and right-wing libertarians better get with it or get out of the way.

The pipe dream by some that somehow there is this confluence of anti-establishment fury that will cause the Tea Partiers and the OWS to come together in some great mutual uprising is never going to materialize.  The two groups may both be angry at the status quo but that's where the similarities end.  I see it ending in a civil war before I see it ending in unity.  But most likely we're in for (at least) a generation of ugly internal political struggle as these polar opposite forces tear the fabric of government and society apart while our economy languishes, our infrastructure crumbles, and our people become bitter and economically defensive.

most excellent read thank you mr. krieger. just as you suggested, message from fringe right and fringe left are two sides of the same coin. when michael moore said 'end capitalism' he's really saying to end crony capitalism, end kleptocracy and corporatocracy.

Capitalism ended with the Paulson panic the bailouts the TBTF goverment backed corporations . The government controled stock exchange ie ; equity and real estate prices . Atleast desperate attempt to drive up the price of the fore mentioned .

lol. Yeah we need price controls. Empty shelves at the store anyone? 2 hour long lines at the gas stations anyone? 

A return to sound money, decrease in regulation, actual enforcement of the good regulation that we do have, reduction in the military budget by fully 2/3rds, strict adherence to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, term limits, and the end of the drug war.

Never happen until there is a real revolution though. Too many people are busy watching Idol.

As far as Michael Moore is concerned, his screaming out, "End capitalism!" was ridiculous. We dont currently have capitalism how could we end it?

Whatever we have made Fat Bastard a ton of money.  Now he wants to end it?  I don't think so.  What he wants to do is exploit it.  Maybe make a docudrama on the miracle of Sudanese health care.

As soon as I think Million$BogusBonehead had said the stupidest thing he can possibly say, he comes along and proves me wrong.

How can a free-market that has been co-opted by the crony capitalists and socialists self-regulate? Until the powers that control money are driven out on a stick, the market will falter. Once freedom and the rule of law is restored, the free-market will ascend again and self-regulate us into prosperity.

Nothing will happen when Obama declares martial law , why because Americans could not get laid in a whore house that is if they had the brain power to even figure it out , the only thing that will get them to do somthing is the dollar colapse and no more cheezy poofs. I am sorry to say that but the people that come on this site are in a tiny minority. If you dont belive me open an account with Facebook and look at what everyone thinks is inportant.

Read some history. Martial Law doesn't get declared one Tuesday morning. It happens piece by piece, a little at a time, for 'security' and 'stability' and then 'crisis' and 'emergencies'. Just temporarily mind you. There is no need to enslave people from above, you can simply get them to enslave themselves with a prison of their fears. They will demand more police in the streets, they will demand more laws, more prisons, more courts,more security, anything to alleviate the terror they feel.

Before you know it people are dressed in khaki and goosestepping down main street. Hurah.

       " It seems that most of Americans never bothered themselves to learn living within their means, save some money, plan for the future, get a decent education and avoid credit at all. "         O.K., here is my favorite kind of comment.     Things used to be like that, they really did,  I remember a time when we did live within our means & saved our money..... of course, that's when savers were paid 6% interest on their savings deposits! ; unfortunately, nowadays, with the abundance of cheap credit, the lack of jobs that pay anything over $9/hr (that is if you can even find that), & education now being one of those "how can we make money off that" fields .............. GOOD LUCK !  living within your means, hell, you can't even afford a crap apartment, food on the table & a shit car with gasoline in this environment !

I like to remind everyone what DR. MARC FABER so famously said,  " When the people are offered cheap money, they are going to take it ! "     in other words, the current day environment was all deliberately orchestrated to get more & more people into debt with cheap money to enrich those in big business, enrich those in the financial sector & Wall St. while empoverishing the masses.       

Plz don't ever talk to me again about 'living within your means', not in this environment.      The one thing ZEROHEDGE taught me was that the credit ponzi needs to be expanded year after year in order not to collapse & U.S. Government & the Federal Reserve Bank have succeeded at draining any wealth that used to be our into their own pockets, it's called DEBT SERF. ........... fucking government; never again will i have anything to do with big banks & the u.s. government; in fact it's all about protecting yourself from thievery by these people ............ BUY SILVER & GOLD & XTRA FOOD & EXTRICATE YOURSELF FROM THIS SYTEM & GO PROTEST IN FRONT OF ANY FEDERAL RESERVE BUILDING YOU CAN .

Sincerely ...................

When the twin towers fell, our President at the time told us all to go shopping.   You have eloquently explained why.  You've also explained why the MSM is attempting to dismiss the current protests as "class warfare."   You've gotta hand it to these guys for setting up a system from which they become wealthy from overconsumption and debt spending, while they prance around on the MSM and complain about all of the overconsumption and debt spending.

"Someone said that Americans are just a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue."

Thanks for the shout out. That was me. It is totally true. And with respect to the disgusting animals loose on Wall Street the answer is simple: Herd and process the cattle that get out and run amok. Drive them into orange plastic pens and spray them with chemicals!!! YES!!Just like the herd animals that they are.

I love the ones who say they want "freedom". Really now? Freedom means no government handouts, no free shit. These are house pets that slip through the front door and run down the street, seeking "freedom"; only to come crawling back the next day; cold, wet, and hungry needing that handout. These filthy mutts couldn't survive a week being "free". They would starve or be eaten by a predator.

I can help with this one .... 1.) Concentration camps for the unproductive, 2.) Debtor's prisons for free-lunch-borrowers, 3.) Cut off ALL social security, 4.) Sterilisation of welfare recipients, 5.) Revoke voting rights for unemployed and non-net-taxpayers - includes students and retires

That's just off the cuff. I can come up with much more.

A glimmer of hope: REF: NSPD 51

As the indomitable Afghans have shown over & over, a home made $50 IED and/or an easily acquired RPG, can immobilize the biggest tracked vehicle and instantly convert it into a roadblock (and an inferno). Helicopters have a very short half-life against RPGs. AK-47s and their look-alikes work just as well now as when they were first produced.

Recall also that the military is an unproven "asset" if attempted to be used against their own brothers and sisters willy-nilly.

When are you going to learn the boomers didn't start this mess?  How could we save ANYTHING?   We were taxed to death if we tried to, told we had to invest in our children's futures in order for the dears to go to college and when we couldn't save enough, we took out second mortgages and got second jobs so the youthful snots could be indoctrinated by the infiltrated institutions known as higher education.

All of this mess started during our grandparent's day.  We were oblivious to the fact that we were being screwed because we fell for the lies, too!

Now, after working our asses off to give our children a better chance than we had, we're told it's all our fault that the thieves stole our retirement, our homes and the minds of our children.

Blame someone else.  I did what I could with what I had, raised my children as best as I could and am looking at starvation when the ungrateful brats of this nation decide I've lived long enough,.

Grow up.

Well said BD&U. Check back with these protesters in a few years when they have yet to have find jobs anywhere but waiting tables for TPTB, and they will be yearing for the capitalism that allowed their parents and grandparents to flourish (at least for a while), while they are thralls to a zombie Market run by the likes of Moore, Soros, and an immortal robo-Buffet. Trying to take down capitalism is akin to stepping on one's own dick, it's the only system that allows the common man to earn an honest buck, sadly most of these kids won't realize that until it's probably too late.
