"This is a direct challenge to TPTB and the message is being sent that the OWSers are poking at a hornets nest. A lot of $$ has gone into militarizing local cops since 9/11/01.  They are showing off their new toys."

Wakanda for the Win!

why is this so difficult for people to grasp?

Who really yearns for TSHTF?

Check out the rabid Rightists in this thread...frickin' Demonic.

Yep. yep. Pretty amazing they spend time on a site largely about rooting out the corruption and decay at the casino, yet they're the first to backstop the establishment.  Humorous. ...and their kids are in the basement posting on GLP.

Jesus, look at the number of police - these protesters must all have been trained by al qaeda.  Or, maybe,  it is Obama's new stimulus - million more baton ready jobs.  Looks like a protest in a fascist state.

but 50% of the population has no effect of the crisis.
Are they the 99% of the 50%

99% of the people who have time to go to these protests?
Or what?

Great point. I am willing to bet that the vast majority of the bleating sheep protesters don't pay any income tax.

Where the 1% actually pay 38% of all the income tax. Fuck these moochers. Chain gun them from helicopters. I HATE THESE MOOCHERS!!! Please Mr. Bloomberg. Find your most mentally disturbed violent officers and turn them loose with armored vehicles. Start kettling these fuckers into alleys and beat them to death.

When actual TAXPAYERS protest I am there. This is just a bunch of whining disgusting bottom feeders. But I am glad they are protesting. Hopefully they will take the system down. I have tons of ammo just sitting there collecting dust, and starving commie hippies make great targets. And when the system comes down these people will be the first to starve. That is the sweet irony of the whole thing.

Raging Debate's picture

And she is confused what the most heavily armed citizenship in the world is. Allow me as an American to tell you two things:

1) An armed civilian society is a polite society.
2) The instructions left for us in the Declaration of Independence at the time of starting violent revolution was to first attempt to Alter our government when inevitable tryanny arrives and then if that fails, abolish it.

Evolving Central Banking and severing the chords of bribery, collusion and monopoly are altering our government. We're altering the Employer/Employee relationship by firing the middle management and then altering legal arrangements in 1913 that has led to violence upon not just our citizens but the entire world. If the Employee chooses violence to prevent themselves for being fired, God help them and all of us.

But either way, justice meaning the restoration of the opportunity to benefit without endless, mindless fear will be delivered. Those of us that study history and not ignore it know that their will be no joy in restructure of our bankrupt nation even if mass violence or war is avoided. But such is the manner of our species and cycles. The people of this planet won't wait 10-20 years to see if global Fascism just 'works itself out'. History has shown it NEVER does.

In what way will I benefit? I went to the protests in NYC and was the only one in my area that had an End The Fed sign. We're going to get four more years of Obama and with him Bernanke and Geithner. The media will be estatic, everyone will have felt they did something right, and fascism will continue unabated in this country. The only thing OWS has done in terms of Wall Street is that the latter saw its biggest gains in weeks. Somebody or something is serving someone. Its up to us to figure out who or what.

If enough people protest the way the banks have destroyed the world's economy, then you would benefit.  It should be self-evident.  If people don't come out in force, then there is no gain, no result, no benefit.  That too should be self-evident.

There are currently not enough protesters in the US, in my estimation, to cause any meaningful rioting.  That would be carte blanche for the feds / riot police to come in and go nuts.  It's much smarter to drag this out while conditions for the armchair critics get worse, so they too want to join, recognizing they are also losers like the protesters.

"How have they stopped the cronyism?"

We would have to agree that ObamaCare (as passed by the majority at the time) is a massive wealth transfer from workers to corporations. You could see it in "equity" shares ccommonly traded on the exchanges.

We would have to agree that the "shovel ready jobs bill" (as passed by that majority at that time) was another example of cronyism to the favored few.

One group opposed both consistently and tossed out members of either side who voted for these and instituted gridlock until more sane heads could prevail.

There will be no more government sanctioned bailouts approved by elected members now...because of one group.

Those losers are so pathetically inept they all work from a manual, I bet.  The psyops pukes are partly right to fear losing their jobs: stupid co-dependent free masons couldn't get a job at McD's if it weren't for the connections.


The sad irony is the following: if they were only to stop developing their pathetic cunning and instead learn real/honest skills, they wouldn't be dependent on their masters for their crumbs, but it doesn't seem like they'll ever wake up and notice how well they've been played...  The system is based on perpetual dependence, and these foolish slaves are too fearful and weak-minded to dare imagine a life of inherent, personal strength - they truly think it is impossible for them.  What sad chumps.

Altert to the bankers, or "banksters" as the zerohedgies call them.  Look out, Monday is "Black Monday" where the hippie freaks close their accounts.  The account termination fees will be greater than the collective balances lost, just heads up..

I watched the first video.  It really pissed me off.  What right does a bank have to lock people inside who showed up to close their account?  Under what authority do the police arrest them for lawful conduct?  I see non-violent protests today becoming bloody conflicts if this shit continues.

The Cop till the curtain comes down.

Even though you're only make believing,
Laugh, Cop, laugh!
Even though something inside is grieving,
Laugh, Cop, laugh!

The problem with your argument, is that you're ignoring time. For example, there may back then indeed have been a systematic attempt, to discredit the TP, and the movement could back then have been "real", but then afterwards been infiltrated. In that case, the non-paid posters bashing them back then, would feel "proven right", even if at the time back then, they were actually wrong.

I don't really care, if the above hypothetic scenario is true - i'm just bringing it up, to show that one can be right about the future, while being wrong about the present.

No, actually time is a friend and has always been on the correct side.

Back then, no one understood what the TP was. They thought it was anti-Obama. It is anti-what-Obama stands for.

Obama and Pelosi and Moore and Canadian/NYC PR firms and the MSM and the Communist Party and college professors and public sector labor unions and crony capitalists everywhere all agree...the TP is bad...bad Tea Party.

They need us, we do not need them...and they know it.

Good point, but the problem is: There is a registration approval lag on ZH.

A typical griefer cannot just register a ZH accound, and instantly post. He'd need to have registered about a week ago before he planned to post. The griefer audience is too lazy to do this in large numbers.

Occupy Wall Street Has Already Won
How the movement has already shaken up American politics, and where it should go from here.
By Eliot Spitzer | Posted Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011
Occupy Wall Street has already won, perhaps not the victory most of its participants want, but a momentous victory nonetheless. It has already altered our political debate, changed the agenda, shifted the discussion in newspapers, on cable TV, and even around the water cooler. And that is wonderful.
Suddenly, the issues of equity, fairness, justice, income distribution, and accountability for the economic cataclysm–issues all but ignored for a generation—are front and center. We have moved beyond the one-dimensional conversation about how much and where to cut the deficit. Questions more central to the social fabric of our nation have returned to the heart of the political debate. By forcing this new discussion, OWS has made most of the other participants in our politics — who either didn’t want to have this conversation or weren’t able to make it happen — look pretty small....

i'll say spitzer is permanently maligned against the banks because they downed him. but his dad is a real estate tycoon and he stands to inherent a real estate fortune built on cheap money. i would say, take him with a grain of salt, so long as he continues to malign the banks. 


if any of his fortune is contingent on cheap financing, he's going to have a change of heart eventually.

GDP? You mean that stat, that among many things judges lending money, as a GAIN? That stat, that basically just measures "spending", regardless of "on what" and "via what means"?

And as for protests implying depression.... umm, yeah, hello mister obvious.... we've been in a depression for YEARS, and now it is so bad, that people won't take it anymore. Obviously, that is a trueism not obvious enough, that we need people telling us that we're in a depression, while we already have even joe average protesting about just that!

i went to the new york times square thing. most fun i ever had hanging out with some friends in times square. lots of hot women and good people too boot. and the cops and everyone pretty much behaved themselves , no stampedes, no thrown objects. 

good times!


as a jew, i'd say the nazi endorsement thing and the communist endorsement thing, is fine. so what. it's not like anyone is taking money from those groups and if they want to pitch in sure. they will be violently squashed anyway by the masses anyways , not because of their politics so much, but because their membership ranks are just usually about as foolishly miscontrolled misinformed as the jugalos.

if the jugalos , a racist group of yobs, supported the occupy movement , i'd say go right ahead. it's not like you have to tell them to their faces that there's no chance in hell they'll get any handouts, benefits, or power as a result of their 'support'. 

and yea, there are anti-semites. so what. nationalism is what's needed right now, and it's not going to result in persecution regime ala hitlers nazi germany. not a chance.

I hope you're right, my friend.  Shocking to see a place that is such a beacon of light to be comprehending what is going on so backwardly. 

The protesters are the good guys.  They are the ones fighting the banks.  The banks are the enemy.


Anyone actually standing up for the banks is slitting their own throats.  They are similar to the battered wife, who says "well if I go back to him this time (the banks), then maybe this time it will be different." 


This movement is what people like Tyler have been fighting for since day one.  This movement is cause to celebrate.  Don't let false flag posters convince you to love your captors like your garden variety Stockholm Syndrome sufferer.

You are a simple bastard aren't you. Your inability to use logic is interesting. Because someone does not support a mob waving socialism slogans yelling "Tax the rich!" means that person supports politician enabled fraud perpetrated by the banks. The banks were given bailouts by CONGRESS you idiot. The Fed exists because of Congress. The housing crisis happened because of Congress and because the regulators in GOVERNMENT did not do their job. The GOVERNMENT accepts bribes legally (as campaign donations) from banks, because CONGRESS made the law that way.

Are you really such an idiot that you think the protesters are directing their anger in the right direction? Not one of the bleating sheep out there is protesting the government. You are sheep too I guess. Easily manipulated. Do you like carrying the water for the labor unions? They are all at the protests. They all bribe Barack Obama too.

When the ability to construct a logical counter argument is unavailable you resort to "bigot"? I suppose I am bigoted against those who show herd like behaviour, manipulated by the various ideological "groups". And I am not suffering actually. I paid attention to this and predicted this when the politicians took the constraints off the mortgage companies, and it was obvious a housing crisis and depression was imminent. I prepared accordingly, and have been enjoying the show profiting off of this ever since.

If only everyone could have it as easy, as throwing around with keywords, and then call that an "argument".

At the risk of repeating myself: GO FUCK YOURSELF.

If you want to construct an actual argument, that is not by the majority of people with even half a brain being seen as pure sophism, then don't base it on appealing to ideological keywords, but on actual explanations.

In the case of the fucking bigot above: He wouldn't accept ANY system, unless it banishes his favorite...... words.... while of course not requiring preventing what he claims to resent so much. Fucking ideologue hypocrites - oh, it's CALLED something different, so it's okay! Oh the things in the new system are not called anymore by my favorite enemy keywords, SO EVERYTHING is fixed!

If only everyone could be a fucking braindead semantic, that only has to care about WORDS, rather than MEANING, everything would be so easy, that we could fix everything overnight, by just banning WORDS.

But it sure as hell makes for less mental effort.
