Posted on 10/04/2011 4:52:39 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
These imbeciles are just as dumb as we thought. Occupy Wall Street protesters posted a proposed list of demands on their website today.
Thankfully, most American fifth graders arent this stupid.
From the Occupy Wall Street website, via Picket and Loesch:
Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending Freetrade by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.
Demand four: Free college education.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of Americas nuclear power plants.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.
Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the Books. World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the Books. And I dont mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.
These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.
Unreal. So who put this together for them anyway?
“Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system”
And there’s where the donkey shows the tail.
Is MY full length chinchilla coat in that list anywhere??
Thanks to QE, QE2, QE3, and Obama’s shockingly reckless deficit spending, a $20 minimum wage will soon be a pay cut in real terms. One way or another, the statist liberals will learn that money only has value because of production. You cannot decree a wage that is not being earned, nor can you spend wealth that is not being created.
waterhose these morons....
We have gone from “Could Obama be a socialist?” To a full throated cry for socialist revolution, income redistribution, racial unrest, and environmental radicalism - all of it led by Obama and his democrat marxist fellow travelers like Durbin.
Is anyone noticing Obama is tripling down on going far left?
Free pop-tarts and fruit loops in every dorm !!!!
Leave it to progressives and socialists/communists to continue to destroy this country.
Additionally, given this lot has absolutely no frakin clue, $20 minimum wage would take job growth in this country from ZERO into the negatives. Clueless Cloward and Piven wannabes.... =.=
If only they had a water hose that automatically emitted a soap mixture.
Did the white house release these?
It sure looks like it.
(since when do protesters demand infrastructure spending? and most of the other Dem. talking points? This is about as astroturf as it gets!)
All the demonstrators are brilliant, supremely bright, absolutely intelligent, all-knowing human beings who know everything, who can run anything, who can bring society to true perfection.
All their demands coincidently sound just like the national level democrat party. And the cpusa. And the media.
But no dim politician will be seen with them. This is all just staged political theater so that the rats can say, “see, the people demand all these things.” And conveniently, van jones is hosting some kind of commie conference in dc next week. van jones has george soros financial backing and is close to baraq.
The baraq gang is pushing from the top down while organizing their own zombies to push from the bottom up.
Not so sure about “international standards”, but demand 10 doesn’t sound bad at all.
I only have one demand :)
Jail all the “Occupy Wall Street Protesters” in a work compound...they know what GULAG means... and have them fix the roads and sewers that have fallen apart because the entitlement checks they receive have emptied the coffers.
These guys are so cheap... $20/hr minimum wage? I’ll show them what generosity is like... I demand $30/hr ( I got plenty of numbers ).
It’s hard to even respond to those demands. I guess my first reaction is where is the demand for free pizza and beer anytime you want it?
$20 minimum wage?
these idiots must want 20% unemployment.
These morons are truly the bottom of the barrel.
And watch a loaf of bread cost $21 within a week.
Complete and utter morons... all of them.
Where are these kids parents? In the crowds with them?
If I find out my kid goes to one of these rallies she is going to find herself figuring out how to pay for her tuition or how to get a job sooner rather than later.
Minimum Wage’s Discriminatory Effects
Minimum Wage, Maximum Folly
White House and SEIU/AFL-CIO Manifesto?
Like when a couple of union goons show up at your door with a ballot and say "Me n' tha boys wuz thinking youse ought sign this here ballot, before something bad happens to ya, right boys?"
When you go to work and do a good job, you will be guaranteed to EARN a living wage. If you feel you are not...you are free to travel anywhere in the 50 United States to find the living wage to EARN.
That wage you demand must come from those who create wealth & productivity. As much as you shame and rant against Free Trade, an open borders policy in regards to work puts your very dreams of a living wage at risk of failure. The very first step in securing your future rests in securing your borders.
“Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.”
Kind of like the 14th amendment?
Does that mean that they'll start giving favorable treatment to aging white males in the workplace, despite their qualifications and abilities?
You have to read this list to believe it. Read all the handout demands and then they want open border to Mexico too so they can all sign up the poor Mexicans for it all, free college, free healthcare, free income(welfare or a government job) ,.....
Once again, they never demanded all this stupid stuff in 2009 and 2010 when Pelosi ran the House with Obama in the WH.
Something tells be that could backfire like those ATM Durbin fees did, but on a much much larger scale.
Oh now that's just cheating. They have three or four demands in this single demand. Is this stream-of-consciousness ransoming?
To say these people are clueless is the understatement of the last thousand years.
These people need to be rounded up, stripped of the US Citizenship they find so onerous, and deported to the People’s Paradise of their choice: Canuckistan, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Nigeria, or anyplace other than here.
Did anyone notice the daily coverage theses protesters are getting not to mention all the cheerleading from the MSM?
That's too close. Plus, the Canuks are economically blowing our doors off at the moment.
I had these same thoughts when I was about six years old, I said I thought everything should be free. My father set me straight, it was the first time I ever hear the word communism. I still remember how he, who was always so gentle and kind to me, was outraged that I would even have such thoughts.
Many of the others are spoiled brats who are accustomed to having everything handed to them on a silver platter and now that times are tough they are throwing a temper tantrum.
We should be careful with these people. The answer is of course to get the economy going again, not to "bail them out." I agree with another poster, you can't dictate a wage that isn't earned and you can't spend wealth that isn't created.
But, desperate people take desperate measures and self pity knows no bounds. These people can and will be dangerous if we are not careful. So on one hand we need to be compassionate on the other we need to be watchful. As for the spoiled brats who are part of the 99% with smart phones, iPads, and personal cars, they need a spanking.
And the forgiveness of DEBT thing? Who would ever go into that sort of business again? Can you IMAGINE the unemloyment THAT would create? These guys are SO clueless. I would LOVE someone to ask them these questions in a serious forum.
I guess they overlooked a small detail. When you deposit money at the bank, you are actually LENDING that money to the bank.
Apparently these generous folks are happy to have all of their and their family’s bank account confiscated!
Demand one has high tariffs for all imported goods, but demand nine opens up the border for anyone to come in to work. I wonder how well that would work in the real world.
Obama is not destroying the economy fast enough for this aromatic throng. But it might inspire a new Dem campaign slogan, “We are not as bad as the fanatical, smelly NYC protest crowd. Stay with us in 2012.”
Now we all know what fantasy world the demonstrators are living in. Sad thing is, I bet Obama would agree with everything on the list!
Amazing. Thanks for the link.
Woo Hoo! I'm going shopping!
Oooh, can I add some demands? How about a 10% reduction in gravity. It will save energy needed to transport stuff and everyone will feel good about the personal weight loss.
I also demand my own unicorn that shoots gold coins from it’s butt.
I read that as guaranteed living wage whether you are employed or not. Most will choose not if that is the case.
