A one world currency was announced and no one noticed.
The true value of gold is much higher than the spot price quoted in the market.
The #OccupyWallStreet crowd has shifted over to the heart of tourist New York (where no actual New Yorker has set foot.. probably ever) - Times Square. Follow the action live with this convenient live feed.
you are right...maybe its the line for the IPROD.
Line up everyone. Buy a chinese made, labor exploited phone you don't need on money you don't have.
Smartphones won't make you smart
guys shut up these avant-garde liberal arts major debt rat hippies are just hoping and praying CIA introduces newer stronger lsd as they did in the 60s. :)
Put Big Brother on the jumbotron.
Actually if Anonymous hacked into the Jumbotron and put the 5th of November mask up on the skreen, that would be pretty epic.
what a shameful joke of a protest. guys get back on the sidewalk. one kid yells "IVE BEEN WAITING FOR TWO HOURS TO CROSS" brother youll be waiting aLOT longer if you think this joke of protest mixed with yuppie/hippie slushie is going to change anything.
"The foundation of the American economy is strong"
"Subprime is contained"
"The banks are doing ok"
"Green shoots are sprouting"
"Unemployment will fall below 8%"
"Recovery will begin now that the banks have been recapitalized"
"The Fed can print to infinity"
"Business is booming again"
"Summer of recovery"
"Its just a soft patch"
"Recovery will resume once the Greek bailout package is passed"
"Recovery will resume once the next Greek bailout package is passed"
"This is about Europe"
"Americans don't protest"
"Its just a small group of hippies"
"This won't amount to much"
"Should be over in no time"
"It'll never spread"
"Its not gonna change anything"
TO BE CONTINUED....
the one thing that is for sure is the TO BE CONTINUED.Protest really DO NOT change anything. Independence is not gained from authority by asking for it..or asking what time and place can i protest so that it will not inhibit trade traffic.
that reminds me...
Edit in "Gold's a bubble" and sprinkle it throughout my previous comment.
Have the troops home by whenthefuckever
Most transparent government ever
it really is sad isnt. especially that have the troops home bye whenthefuckever line is sadly true.
"Its just a small group of unemployed toothless rednecks"
"The tea party's message is unclear"
"It won't resonate with the mainstream"
"This bill is paid for"
+1 Damn how'd we miss that one?
Well, seems everybody black been sayin that recently about everybody else black or my ears and eyes been decieveing me?
Weird ain't it?
You can't be a genuine "black" unless you subscribe to a certain viewpoint...very odd...but completely color blind...LOL!!!
You calling me a hypocrite? ;)
You can't be suggesting I'm in the same league as "Strong Dollar Policy"
THIS IS A TEST. FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS YOU'VE BEEN SUBJECTS OF A TEST.
This test has been hard, bitchez.
I gotta say, nobody has been able to explain the tea baggers to me.
I keep hoping they are fiscal conservatives, but they just keep telling me they have no platform, no agenda, no plan, and no leaders.
I can't see much happening there...
"I can't see much happening there..."
Outside of stopping crony's in their tracks?...nahhh...nothing happening...move along.
What does that mean? How have they stopped the cronyism? Is that what they planned to do, or a side effect? That is, of course, if they actually did stop some form of cronyism and no one found out about it...
It's early yet. The message is getting out now.
"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.
I'll have to think about that...
I don't remember anybody consistantly opposing either the healthcare bill or the stimulous bill, outside the 'just say no' wing of the republicans.
Is that who the tea party is, the ones who vote no to everything?
If so, fiscal conservatives simply have a new name.
I'd like to join!
Everyone is welcome, we have nothing to hide.
Smaller government, less taxes, more liberty.
Huh... I'll have to think about that... I don't remember anybody consistantly opposing either the healthcare bill or the stimulous bill, outside the 'just say no' wing of the republicans. Is that who the tea party is, the ones who vote no to everything? If so, fiscal conservatives simply have a new name. I'd like to join!
If the tea party stops cronyism in another universe, does it really stop in this one?
"Protest really DO NOT change anything. Independence is not gained from authority by asking for it.."
All true, of course, therefore more reason to consider this OWS situation critically important -- if it has staying power, it will ultimately come to push vs shove, and expose the true intent, desperation and wherewithal on all sides of the equation.
Herbert Hoover is alive and well in 2011
I am reminded of an art festival 6-7 years back in the central plaza in Santa Fe, NM. (2) armored anti-riot paddy wagons parked at the margin.
They looked like Civil War-era ironsides - ungainly, ultra-heavy, portholes and the rest of that clanking, medieval, primitive shit.
What on earth called them out to a damn art fair ? These people behind this are just numb. Very dangerous imvho.
"Paddy Wagons" like "Irish Pennants" are such ethnic slurs ;-)
Not to mention O'bama.
He's half cracka...thats the bad part...or sumpin...I think.
You really need a program to follow along these days ;-)
I didnt Know that Jeff Macke was a cop now..........damn
New York storm trooper scum
I've read 100x on ZH that "there's no difference between a democrat and a republican - that's how they divide us", but it looks to me that the 1% marxists (calling themselves "the 99" - i call bullshit-) are now fighting the 1% "corporate enemy", while the government (d & r) watches with popcorn. WTF? Deceived maybe???
Lazy bankster whore.... if you are already paid to do psyops, then at least come up with original posts, instead of copypasting across threads - work for your pay you lazy bitch!
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.
OMG, Citibank now arresting customers who want to close their accounts:
Looks like this Monday could be a Bank Run Monday.
Keep up the good work, 99%!
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..
'account termination fees'
HA! What will they come up with next!
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.
I've heard of substantial penalty for early withdrawal but this is ridiculous.
I bet that hot dog guy is retiring this week.
White protestors are so lame ..... they're all drinking $7 Starbucks mocha lattes and using $2000 iMac Air to friend each other on facebook ..... losers
You forgot "while chanting capitalism sucks".
You forgot "Whilst wearing a overpriced $60 dollar worn Abercrombie and Fitch shirt"
Only 7k viewer? C'mon, start thowing some produce like in Rome. Haha.
the cops are laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! epic fail protesters.
Life is a play and we all play a part,
The Lover, the Dreamer, the Cop.
The Dreamer and Lover are always in tears,
The Cop spreads sunshine around.
The life with a smile is the life worthwhile,
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!
Don't let your heart grow too mellow,
Just be a real Joe Friday, fellow
