i don't understand the word austerity. i mean, shouldn't the rich and powerful 1% embrace the concept of 'austerity', before imposing it on the 99% of people who are less fortunate than them? this is the real class war.

With all these people protesting, there has got to be one job created when protesters get hungry.


Gyro vendor. Of course the profit is in the drinks.


but I don't see any in any of the protest pictures.


I can also think of flag seller, and baseball bat vendor

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”  Aldous Huxley - the real Aldous Huxley

The best propaganda is mostly true... it's a much easier pill to swallow. Mostly all pop icons serve this purpose... they're created by the system for the system.


Dilbert mocks the "induhviduals" who keep a man from doing his job, but on the larger issues of corporate malfeasance, Adams is mute. The cartoonist is even an apologist for downsizing. In a May 1997 Canadian television interview, he opined, "Everyone knows someone who came out fine after getting downsized. ... Suddenly it's not such a scary thing anymore."

Dilbert's wistful grousing about badly run companies is, as Solomon suggests, a safety valve that doesn't release any real pressure. Just as stress-management classes instruct employees in rage-swallowing and chronic-pain-enduring, Dilbert counsels submitting to the inevitable.

Kill and cook perhaps, but he would only be fit to be fed to the dogs, and even then only dogs that were mad or certain to die soon of other maladies.

Mr. Adams is a parasite that pretends to be an artist.  His creativity is as deep as a conversation with Paris Hilton and he has become sucessful by being a feedback loop between his publisher and his audience, with the audience providng the actual content through web & email contributions, and Adams being the conduit by which such ideas are spread between his audience.

A decent plumber could cut him out of the piping and no one would notice he was gone.

He is a shadow of what cartoonist are. Put Adams up against Gary Larsen to see what a real cartoonist does.

I'm well aware of the injustices of crony capitalism, but that site might as well be called wearethepathetic.com.  My favorite is the condo flipper who wants someone to suspend the laws of economics for him.  These are the people who will do anything for a handout or a free ride, at someone else's expense.  Sorry, can't trust a one of them.

There's plenty of people on that site with not exactly what I would describe as sympathetic stories (boohoo, my car payment is too high). Sure that sort piss me off, but not as much as the politicians that put us in this mess.

Most of them on there have health issues.  Many of those suspect at best of why they can't work or function (bi-polar...oh I can't work at all bs) and just want handouts and someone to support their lazy lifestyle.  I suspect 99% of those on that site would not have survived say 50+ years ago before the great welfare nation we have now.

Sorry to say, but all I saw was the usual lefty crap.

Some number of Joe Americans are waking up, but the Occupy group I saw were political types angling for a bigger share of the Leviathan's Pie.

Tyranny is organized, but the opposition begins as fragmented, leaderless, and often politically distasteful.  This opposition will soon disappear if it stays that way but its chances of expansion are very good considering the stated objective I’ve heard the most: namely, the overturning of the financial elite that controls the country for its own benefit.

According to CNN’s wire staff today, “The motto atop a website for ‘Occupy Los Angeles,’ which kicked off Saturday with a march from Pershing Square to City Hall, reads: ‘The revolution is happening ... It's just not in the news.’"

CNN reports that “the website of Seattle demonstrators describes the nationwide effort as ‘a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions.’

"’The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%,’ the statement continues, referring to what it sees as a sharp divide between the wealthiest Americans and the rest of society.”

We haven't seen protests yet.  Let those SNAP cards quit working, or let our fiat reflect actual purchasing power in a true global economy, and you will then see some protests.  Some zombie-eating-fucking-zombie shit that will shock people.  I recommend staying at home those days, and living off your hoard, sleeping in shifts so that someone is round-the-clock awake and armed 'just in case'.

Well I for one do not look at it as random, but wrong, dogmatic thinking.  Hormone shots or pills are very dangerous.  

If they ever did a study between carcinogenic intake, homone (birth control)  pills, and cervical cancer the world would be shocked to see the correlation.

I would not trust any "HIV" data out of Africa.  It is a joke, the last refuge for drug companies to peddle toxic crap that loses favor in the west.

The PM is "thinking" about early retirement can only mean one thing. He's done, he's exhausted and he knows there is no hope, not in his lifetime.

Education is a privilege. The unions have completely destroyed that aspect and turned schools into factories. Students get programmed like machines on a belt.

I charge that if the unions had stayed out of the education sector completely, the people would be wiser and mistakes could have been avoided. The unions have aided the financial elite in dumbing down the population because education was never at the core of the union's charter, just the amount they would get paid in order to complete the product.

What are the unions protesting? That the hand that's been feeding them is going broke? Don't tell me the unions didn't know how fraudulent the process has been. They've been in it for the same reasons and now that the trough is empty, they're screaming.

What chapter of Animal Farm is that exactly?

That's why these kids shouldn't underestimate who they are up against.


99% should learn how to shoot guns, go out to Montana, form a militia, learn to farm, then come back to NYC to kill off banksters. We need to terminate these leeches of society like the French did.


Show the elites what the country looks like when 99% are poor. Hope they like living in a slum.
