Posted on 10/08/2011 1:55:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Ninety-nine percent of Americans, the folks the youthful Wall Street Occupiers claim to represent, have been trying their best to ignore the Occupiers. But far from wishing they would go away, we encourage the Occupiers to keep protesting "corporate greed," "social injustice," "income inequality," crony capitalism and government corruption, and issuing their threats of violent insurrection and anarchy in the name of democracy.
No, Americans need to take a long, hard look at these protesters because they "the OccupyWallSt.org collective" are the face of America's Loopy Left. If their words and causes aren't evidence enough, consider their supporters and sponsors: Big Labor, which shares their socialist goals if not their lexicon; George Soros, Van Jones, Bernie Sanders and a slew of other notable leftists; the Who's Who of Hollywood Halfwits; rich, unionized college professors who are turning your children's minds to mush; and, of course, moveon.org.
It's clear the frustration of the Occupy mobs is rooted in President Obama's failure to deliver on his promises of rainbows and unicorns for all. With their dreams dashed by reality and their hopes of a second Obama term fading, they are lashing out, and the main targets of their misdirected anger primarily are Wall Street and America's megabanks, especially Goldman Sachs. Incidentally, those industries bankrolled Mr. Obama's 2008 White House run; Goldman alone gave nearly $1 million. With 13 months before Election Day 2012, they already have ponied up $7.2 million for his re-election bid, the Center for Responsive Politics reports.
The Occupiers say they're angry that Wall Street and the banks got taxpayer-funded bailouts while they got nothing, and that moneyed interests are holding the U.S. government hostage. These are reasonable grievances, but the Occupiers' complaints might carry more weight if they exhibited even a basic understanding of how capitalism works, and if their own demands didn't make them look so, well, greedy.
Besides free health care and free college greedy bankers! they want:
The minimum wage raised to $20 an hour. So they can make more money in their on-campus work-study jobs? If $20 became the national standard, most minimum-wage jobs would disappear, and the cost of goods and services produced by what was left of minimum-wage labor would skyrocket. How would Occupiers feel about paying $50 for their nightly pepperoni pizza? Greedy bankers!
A "living wage regardless of employment." So they don't have to grow up and get economically productive jobs? They don't explain how the government, presumably, would pay this sloth wage, but taxing 100 percent of the incomes of every American millionaire and confiscating all their wealth wouldn't come close to footing that enormous bill long-term. Greedy bankers!
Immediate "across the board debt forgiveness for all." So they won't have to repay their college loans? Greedy bankers!
Occupiers would delight in dancing on the grave of the investment and banking industries, but their glee would be short-lived. If Wall Street and the banks went belly up, the world economic system would collapse, and America would lack the wherewithal to meet the Occupiers' other demands. Putting it in more narcissistic terms: Mommy and Daddy would lose their jobs and savings, and the Occupiers would be left with no one to pay for their gasoline and car insurance, video games, concert tickets, iPhones, tattoos, pizza, birth control and marijuana.
The Occupiers' goals are rooted unambiguously and undeniably in the something-for-nothing, spread-the-wealth-around philosophy of socialism and America's crony capitalist in chief. "These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy," the Occupiers' Web site boasts. Au contraire, they would wreck the economy, destroy the American way of life and plunge the world into anarchy. But isn't shared misery the whole point of socialism?
My money is safe from these assclowns - I hid it under a bar of soap.
Both terms mean "do what you're told by Mr. Big" and "Mr. Big owns everybody and everything".
When the Useful Idiot Party comes together with the Usual Subjects Party, lunacy and confusion is going to be the result.
The useful idiots would be awfully surprised if they got their way. As with all marxist/fascist/communist revolutions, those who screamed the loudest for it are often the first to be rounded up by those they put into power.
They’ve spent the last few years making noise and trying to attract the attention of the puppet masters who pull their strings. What they don’t realize is that the puppet masters won’t need rabble rousers and they will need to be eliminated.
There’s a reason Che fled newly communist Cuba that was led by his friend Fidel.
“My money is safe from these assclowns - I hid it under a bar of soap.”
hahaha! ingenious thinking, they will be repelled by the soap and therefore be unable to steal your money.
These hippies need to be told in no uncertainty terms that they are NOT entitled to anyone else’s money and any attempt to take that money will be met with deadly force.
They are entitled to only what they themselves make, not the goods or services produced by anyone else’s labor.
This is 1920’s Chicago. Criminals are using Marxism as a front for stealing from the people. Everyone gets a taste, but few get a fork.
Socialism is, at its very core, a corrupt corporation. It’s structured around the concept of “democratic centrism” and the “vanguard of the proletariat”.
A corrupt corporation goes belly up as people simply buy the higher quality and cheaper product and/or services of the competitor. That is unless that “corporation” is a force monopoly like Government, and therefore able to force people to buy its product.
There is anther term for this state of affairs, its called Slavery.
If theses protestors want that, let them have their own state, let the rest of us force them to resist with each other for 10 years in the hell of their own creation.
Let us uses them as an example to educate our children as to why you never ever fall for this foolish nonsense!
Why doesn’t someone ask these useful idiots why they support the president that bailed out those banks?
Why did Obama sympathize with them when he caused their pain?
Normalcy bias and ignorance won’t let people realize and admit our republic is the sequel to the Weimar republic.
(One protestor defecated on a policeman's car. Could not even read rest of story; but hope they made sure he did not leave scene w/o his deposit and/or this flotsam of humanity was arrested.)
Am doubting an optimal conclusion; however. Might go back and look; but more likely not.
A good, hard days work of any kind- manual labor, sales, or in an office somewhere would kill these kids.
Waterbury Republican-American ping!
