Wall Street Occupiers: "They're giving frustration a voice," Obama says he understands
The Daily Mail ^ | 10/06/2011 | Mark Duell

Posted on 10/06/2011 6:11:19 PM PDT by ealgeone

Barack Obama has come perilously close to endorsing the fast-growing Occupy Wall Street protests. The President today said those holding sit-ins and rallies in New York and across the U.S. are expressing the frustrations of Americans over Wall Street practices and economic inequality.....

A couple of things to note:

As a Tea Party participant all the police had to do was stand around.

We cleaned up after ourselves.

We paid for our own trips, hotels and meals. No union support.

There were zero threats against anyone.

We didn't screw up anybody else's daily routines.

Then it may be time to prepare for No More Mr. Nice Guy.

If you think you can have peaceful TEAParty events without the Obots from Hell attacking you .....

Things have changed. The target isn't "Wallstreet" ~ it's actually free people ~ they don't like it ~ they prefer slaves ~ they want to be masters.

Obama is showing his Luo roots (as almost any African historian could tell you about).

Obama is so frustrated that he’s going to give Wall St. another trillion dollars of the Occupiers’ grandchildren’s money!

Don’t worry Barry. These unbathed, young skulls full of mush will turn out in droves to vote for you anyway. They aren’t very bright.

Of course he understands. He recently called for this
uprising along with his buddy Hoffa. Whatever happens on the streets, he owns it.

The GOP is busy voting on a bill with Ried on China that will never be brought to a vote but inturn screwing the themselves and thier colleges when it comes to amendments to any bill that these parasitic cretans will come up with. We also need to pay close attention to how the GOP votes so we can hand them thier hat in 2012 and beyond

“where’ the fu**ing gop denouncing a*swad on this?”

The Grand Old Potty is keeping their heads down...they don’t want to be seen around the likes of us. Time to flush those corrupt bastards and put in more Tea Party candidates. Oh wait...WTF...where are THEY?

Been in DC a pretty short time to come down with Rinocitis...

I would appreciate anyone’s opinion based on the Constitution.

If Harry Reid changes the rules of the Senate “the nuclear option”, could Obama declare Martial Law and Congress have no rights to declare it illegal?

I can see this situation on Wall Street escalating at the bequest of the liberals and Obama declaring Martial Law to stop the 2012 elections.

It’s probably a hair-brain thought, but I never thought I’d live to see the day where our Country is changing moment by moment.

Thanks for any input!

He understands completely... he authorized and backed this happening... this has been in the works since 2008... and Rush said so today himself.

I don’t think we are there...yet. But there will have to be some action at some point...this is raising hell with our cities and they don’t have an agenda. I think people will demand an end to it soon and I don’t see the administration at this point pulling that kind of stunt. I doubt they could. This is not a real popular illegal alien in the WH anymore. And I also think that any thoughtful citizen that went near these infestations would be revolted, not revolting.

Ok, so where are these two luv-birds getting money for all the bling, tattoos, ear guaging and hair dye?

If either one of them came into my business for a job their resume would immediately hit the circular file.

Of course, they would contend I was “judging” them on their appearance. I am! Our customers would take one look at them and head out the door. AND we are paying more than minimum wage + benefits.

I can’t help to think Occupying Wall Street is nothing more than Chicago style shake down. If Wall street would just get behind getting Obama re-elected, all the protesters would go gone by the end of the week.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as ‘bad luck’.” Robert A. Heinlein

he is so frustrated because this is extortion like Jackson and Sharpton does.

We wall know wall street gave more to the left
they are not now.
obama knows he needs a lot of money and wall street is not paying up like in the past.

So they get all the groups out, homo right,s women right,s, green energy, code pink, commies, unions, layabouts, pro protesters, end the war, end the death penalty etc

Now they all of a sudden get pissed off with the elfts biggest donors and go to Ny city to pick up their pre made signs and get free food.

NO CHANCE

THIS IS A SHAKEDOWN OF WALL STREET

Behind the scenes I guarantee that Van Jones is talking to wall street saying give us money and the protests go away.

This is B/S

"They're giving frustration a voice," Obama says

That may be true but the Usual Suspects Party joining together with the Useful Idiots Party to form the Wee Wee Party is still a goofy idea. IMHO.

he’s shaking down wall street for money seeing as they are not giving as much as usual.

They get all their lefty groups out there and the dopes have no idea what they’re doing but the Van Jones etc are talking to wall street and saying give us money and the protests stop.

Think about it, why would unions protest wall street when their 401k’s are at wall street and then working men and women protest along side a bunch of smelly hippies and all the homo groups etc

this is extortion, just like Van JOnes banning sponsors of Beck and FOX

just said the same

this is a extortion shakedown of wall street and that is why the homo groups anti war, women rights, code pink , end the war, commies, etc have no clue why they’re there the idiots.

Meanwhile they stand outside and Van Jones is getting money off wall street by this way seeing as wall street is not hiring and giving campaign cash

I had a guy walk in to my shop that looked like he lost a fight with a staple gun. A fully loaded one at that. Had disks the size of Oreo cookies in his ears. Of course this would not be complete with out purple hair, leathers and combat boots.

it was 87 degrees out to day.

He wanted an application. I said I am sorry, I am not hiring at this time. He demanded an application. I said ok. Let me ask you a few questions first.

I proceeded to point to one of the animals in my shop that had what it was clearly printed on the tag on the tank, what kind of animals is this? He could not answer.

I pointed at a piece of equipment that had it’s purpose printed right on the box. What does this do? He could not answer.

he headed for the door.

I honestly don’t think the guy could read. I felt bad for him in a way. If he attended school, even as a high school drop out, he should have been able to read. His appearance was best suited for one of those goth type retail joints in the mall. I suspect he was out looking for applications just to say he applied to keep the unemployment flowing.

This guy was maybe 22-25 years old. My wife turned to me and said “hun, he’s going to be paying our social security”

Ya..right.

A narcisistic totalitarian in the White House who enjoys full obedience by a compliant media complex (PRAVDA). A Senate that has effectively destroyed the voice of the Republic with Authoritarian tactics that it uses to pass legislation that the people reject. What’s next, a 21st century version of the Reichstag fire, followed by declaration of Marshall Law, the recruitment of the wall street occupiers to server as the Obama youth revolution unit, fully paid for by your tax dollars, where they will serve as the Presidents (brown shirt) cvilian armed forces and will be charged with collecting up all the bad bankers and corporate CEO’s, as well as other nefarious political plotters, opponents, racists that dare question the president. Gulags, I guess the left will have found a new use for GITMO. If America will not willingly transform to a Socialist economy then it will be forced upon it through revolution. This is the creed of the Marxists which are now the normal mainstream liberals.

You seen Hank Williams Jr. was more right than even he could have guessed.

I do like your idea of billing the DNC for the garbage fee for these juvenile gutter-rats. Soon they will be Adult Career Debtocrats, and it is high time that they take responsibility for their actions, or in this case, lack of action.

I agree... but Wall Street is just as sick of obama as we are... everyone I speak with hates these hippy commies... they despise the vermin protesting. Almost everyone today has been awakened by pain... and they are paying attention... and this movement will destroy the dim party. Karma is a b!tch!
