We Stand With the Majority of Americans: Human Needs, Not Corporate Greed (Take Note, please)
October 2011 website ^ | Ongoing | --

Posted on 08/30/2011 7:15:25 AM PDT by combat_boots

A large majority of the American people consistently support the following agenda: *Tax the rich and corporations *End the wars, bring the troops home, cut military spending *Protect the social safety net, strengthen Social *Security and improved Medicare for all *End corporate welfare for oil companies and other big business interests *Transition to a clean energy economy, reverse environmental degradation *Protect worker rights including collective bargaining, create jobs and raise wages *Get money out of politics

The government, dominated by elite economic interests, is going in the opposite direction from what the people want. The American people’s agenda is our agenda.

I’ll stand against them.

Taxes are coercion. While some taxes might be necessary to support the VALID functions of the State, I WILL stand against taxes that are simply transfer payments to the weak, lame, lazy, stupid, greedy, and perverted.

These people are treasonists and should be expelled from this country immediately.

And as far as human need goes...

I don’t give a sh!t.

If you ain’t a member of my family, I’m not going to help or take care of your needs UNLESS I CHOOSE TO.

If you try to force me to, I’ll watch you starve.

The left are very quiet on some ‘corporate greed’(GE,Microsoft) along with certain special interests(A.B.A) yet others (Big Oil, WalMart) are just plain ‘evil’.

Who is organizing this? The Obama 2012 campaign? These slogan are the same sort of meaningless drivel that usually drops out of the mouth of Present-ident 0.

Who's going to pay for all these things?

The Little Red Hen:

Once upon a time, there was a little red hen who lived on a farm . She was friends with a lazy dog , a sleepy cat , and a noisy yellow duck .
One day the little red hen found some seeds on the ground. The little red hen had an idea. She would plant the seeds .
The little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me plant the seeds ?" "Not I," barked the lazy dog . "Not I," purred the sleepy cat . "Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .
"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen planted the seeds all by herself.

When the seeds had grown, the little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me cut the wheat ?" "Not I," barked the lazy dog . "Not I," purred the sleepy cat . "Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .
"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen cut the wheat all by herself.

When all the wheat was cut, the little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me take the wheat to the mill to be ground into flour ?" "Not I," barked the lazy dog . "Not I," purred the sleepy cat . "Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .
"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen brought the wheat to the mill all by herself, ground the wheat into flour , and carried the heavy sack of flour back to the farm .

The tired little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me bake the bread ?" "Not I," barked the lazy dog . "Not I," purred the sleepy cat . "Not I," quacked the noisy yellow duck .
"Then I will," said the little red hen . So the little red hen baked the bread all by herself.

When the bread was finished, the tired little red hen asked her friends, "Who will help me eat the bread ?" "I will," barked the lazy dog . "I will," purred the sleepy cat . "I will," quacked the noisy yellow duck .
"No!" said the little red hen . "I will." And the little red hen ate the bread all by herself.

No corporation in the history of humanity has ever paid a penny of tax no matter what tax laws are passed; their customers pay the corporate tax. This is a painfully obvious and inescapable fact but 9 out of 10 people don’t know it and it cannot be explained to 6 out of 10

Any such “revolution attempt” will be a ridiculous joke.
Perhaps a few dozen college kids in silly costumes being bussed in. This screed was obviously written by a thirty-something grad student living in his parents’ basement.

I'm not sure. Usually these leftists hide behind "privacy protected" domain registrations. I was actually shocked that this domain has a real registrant who is visible.

Domain registration info for october2011.org.

I'll leave it to others to determine who "David Swanson" is and what his political connections are. Maybe someone with time can run him through opensecrets and see if he's been politically active in the past.

And the little red hen ate the bread all by herself.

So the dog, cat and duck called Homeland Security on the hen and despite being 'red' herself the Feds came in took everything from the chicken and gave it to the others in the interest of fairness. Bereft of property the little red hen wandered until caught and killed and devoured by a flash mob of coyotes. Her estate got a bill from the IRS. The dog, cat and duck continued to vote for the Democrats.

It’s unions and commies. You’ll hear a lot about the Tea Party “holding America hostage” which translates to “won’t raise taxes”. Plenty of Democrat radicals like Maxine Waters, talks about justice, workers rights. The President will barely get a mention, despite the fact he has us in 3 wars now and Gitmo is still running.

Then the violence will begin.

When I hear numbskulls demanding this-and-that, I always wonder who they imagine is going to pay for it.

But practicalities aside, bring 'em on. There's nothing like a good Dem riot to kick off Obama's re-election campaign. Maybe they'll burn down a building or two? That always gets out the vote. It'll be like 1968 all over again!

“No!” said the little red hen . “I will.” And the little red hen ate the bread all by herself. ]

“Why that no good greedy hen” barked the dog, “She at all that bread how dare she have all that bread!” “We are entitled to that bread”, said the cat. The Duck Quacked in an angry tone, “What she has done is so selfish that she needs to be taught a lesson!”.

The next day the Dog, the Cat, and the Noisy Duck ambushed the little red hen as she came out of her roost. They held a big party and cooked the little red hen for their dinner. They then took all the bread she had baked and greedily ate it all. “Now we will no longer be oppressed by the little red hen!” Barked the Dog happily. “We will never have to worry about starving!” Purred the Cat. “I love the bread, she hoarded the bread all to herself, but now we can feast on it equally.” Quacked the Duck.

The next year they ran out of bread and all starved to death.

Had the little red hen shared her bread with the freeloaders, they'd expect her to do it for them the rest of her short, little life. She'd be their slave, just as the American tax payers are the freeloaders slaves today. We made the mistake of sharing our wages.

Let's see..Yep, here it is in the back of the closet...my triple knit, lime green elephant bells and they still (gasp) fit. Gonna look great with my favorite (groovy man!) tie dyed shirt (it must’ve shrank a bit hanging there).

I'd tie my hair back in a pony tail but there's barely enough to make a mouse tail even when I blow dry and fluff both strands (wear a flag bandanna, I guess).

O.K., I'm ready to strike a blow against corporate greed and for justice (but I gotta get back early to make to work Monday at the bank).

In reality, Mr. Swanson wants to take your money and my money out of politics. Him and his union buddies should be the only ones allowed to buy influence.
