“Make $350-650 a week “protesting” on Wall Street"
Craig's List ^ | 10/7/2011 | Craigs List

Posted on 10/09/2011 5:11:52 PM PDT by PMAS

http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/gov/2618821815.html

The Working Families Party (WFP) (www.workingfamiliesparty.org) is New York's most energetic, independent and progressive political party. Formed in 1998 by a grassroots coalition of community organizations, neighborhood activists, and labor unions, we came together to build a society that works for all of us, not just Wall Street CEOs and the well-connected. WFP is independent from corporate and government funding and in-addition we are community based; community funded and equally uninfluenced by both major parties. Our agenda focuses on economic and social justice, corporate accountability, job creation, environmental protection, and investment in education and healthcare. For the past twelve years the WFP has been at the fore front of progressive politics,

Leading the fight and helping to frame the debate. The WFP has a proud record of fighting for issues that matter and has been instrumental in implementing key pieces of legislation such as Raising New York's Minimum Wage, Enacting Living Wage Laws, Creating Thousands of Jobs In the Green Economy, Passing Healthcare Reforms on the Local Level, Fighting for Affordable Housing, Keeping Tuition Costs Low, A Progressive Tax Code, Reliable/Cost Effective Public Transit System, Public Financing Of Elections and Corporate Accountability . In addition, we have an unapologetic stance on supporting and pushing good candidates to enact progressive legislation

The WFP is seeking immediate hires.

You must be an energetic communicator, with a passion for social and economic justice.

So...for many, this would be their first (and likely only) paid job, huh? But that's ok, once the occupy ‘movement’ fails with winter weather, they'll be able to ‘occupy’ 99 weeks of unemployment.

This underlines the importance of de-funding the Left. Public employee union dues, "research" grants to Left professors, NEA grants to Lefty "artists" -- the list goes on.

EXACTLY. This is why I want to see unions BANNED, and I’m hoping President Cain does just that.

Once they entered politics, they put their legitimacy on the table...and once the stars line up, we’ll be through with that UGLY CHAPTER of American history.

This confirms that SEIU and ACORN were working to astroturf this whole thing with George Soros's money.

Soros has been funding the "Working Families" parties since the early 1990s.

Not only union dues but our tax dollars. For more than fourty years our money has been doled out to every king of “social justice” group out there. There must be hundreds if not thousands. The tax payers pay for the grants that these commie groups receive and then they in turn send some of our tax money back to the democrats in the form of political contributions. This is what they have done with Planned Parenthood for many years. The dems give money to the Planned Parenthood and then they give some of it back in donations to the democrat party. I realized that this must be what they do with all of the leftist groups. They are funneling our money back into the dems pockets. Don’t forget that politicians get to keep any unused campaign funds when they retire, so we are funding their retirement pensions.

Soros has billions. He can afford to pay millions and millions of thugs. That is how the colored revolutions happened in eastern Europe.

Now it is happening here.

Our government is either in on it, doesn't give sh*t, or is too busy running guns to Mexican drug lords.

No, this is authentic, these protestors are giving voice to average American's concerns. Barack Obama, Pelosi and the democrats say so.

And the protests are spreading throughout the country. Republicans critical of the Wall St protests are in a uncomfortable position too, since they were all gung-ho during the Tea Party protests of several months back. Its true because ABC News said so.

My contempt of the democrats and news media knows no bounds.

Here is the Axelrod/AstroTurf connection.

DAVID AXELROD (Last sentence is pure projection...Occupy THIS!)

Longtime Democratic political consultant
President Obama’s closest advisor

Born in 1955, David Axelrod grew up in Manhattan and, from an early age, engaged passionately in politics. At age ten, he canvassed for New York mayoral candidate John Lindsay (Democrat) and, at age 13, sold campaign buttons and bumper stickers promoting Robert Kennedy for President. Axelrod's mother was a writer for PM, a left-wing New York newspaper, which was alleged to have ties to the Communist Party.

In 1977, Axelrod completed his B.A. in political studies at the University of Chicago. That same year, he received an internship at the Chicago Tribune. In 1982 he was promoted to become the Tribune’s youngest chief political writer. Don Rose, founder of the pro-communist Hyde Park Voices and a 1960s member the Alliance to End Repression, which was a suspected Communist Party front, has claimed that he and another prominent Chicago communist, David Canter, mentored Axelrod and guided his early political development during this time. “I ... wrote a reference letter for him,” Rose stated, “that helped him win an internship at the Tribune, which was the next step in his journalism career.”

In 1984, dissatisfied with his career and the “corporatization of journalism” in general, Axelrod joined the Senate campaign of Illinois Representative Paul Simon. Originally hired as Communications Director, Axelrod was promoted to Co-Manager within the first two months. During the campaign, he worked alongside Rahm Emanuel, who would go on to become President Barack Obama’s chief of staff 25 years later.

Following Simon’s successful Senate bid, Axelrod in 1985 founded a political consultancy named Axelrod & Associates, which later became known as AKPD Message and Media. This firm specializes in "representing Democratic candidates and progressive causes." In 1987, Axelrod’s Chicago-based company got its first break when Axelrod was hired to run the re-election campaign of Harold Washington, Chicago’s first African-American mayor. Here, Axelrod worked with Don Rose and Marc Canter (David Canter's son), who had close associations with Mayor Washington and were involved in a coalition of communist and socialist groups supporting his mayoral campaigns in the 1980s.

Directing Washington’s successful re-election campaign propelled Axelrod’s political consultancy into the limelight. In the years that followed, Axelrod helped a number of African-American candidates win political office. Most prominent of these victorious Democratic campaigns were those of Carol Moseley-Braun, the first African American woman elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992, and Deval Patrick, the first African-American elected governor of Massachusetts in 2006.

In addition to scores of Democratic politicians and other organizations, Axelrod and his consultancy were hired by the Democratic National Campaign Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Governors Association, the AFL-CIO, the AFSCME, the SEIU, and the Working Families Party. Axelrod also came to advise the top echelon of politicians in the Democratic Party. He worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate Campaign, helped Rahm Emanuel win a House of Representatives seat in 2002, and directed John Edwards' 2004 presidential campaign.

From the same Chicago address that his political consultancy occupied, Axelrod ran ASK Public Strategies, which discreetly produces advertising campaigns for corporate clients seeking to swing negative public opinion in their favor. Although Axelrod and his partners refuse to reveal the identity of any of their clients, public records confirm that ASK’s client list has included the Chicago Children’s Museum, Cablevision, AT&T, and the Chicago-based utility ComEd.

According to Business Week magazine, the secrecy surrounding ASK masks a significant crossover of Axelrod’s political connections and his corporate business. For instance, in 2007, Mayor Richard M. Daley, one of Axelrod’s friends and earliest clients, pushed for the development of a Children’s Museum but was blocked by local groups. Daley hired ASK to direct a campaign to win support for the museum project. Another of ASK’s longtime private clients, ComEd, and its parent company Exelon contributed $181,711 to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, a sum greater than what was contributed by any other company in Illinois.

Axelrod is considered by many to be the mastermind behind Barack Obama’s rapid rise to power. Axelrod and Obama initially became acquainted when Obama led a Project Vote voter-registration drive in Chicago in 1992. It was not until Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2004 that the two joined forces. Ever since, Axelrod has been Obama’s closest advisor.

Axelrod has depicted his relationship with Obama more as a vocation than a job: “I thought that if I could help Barack Obama get to Washington, then I would have accomplished something great in my life.” “I do love Barack Obama,” Axelrod stated on another occasion. “I believe in him.” Obama himself has indicated that their close partnership is based upon a deep ideological affinity: “You know, he and I share a basic worldview … I trust his basic take on what the country should be and where we need to move towards — not just on specific policy but how politics should be able to draw on our best and not our worst.”

During the 2008 presidential campaigns, Axelrod was asked to comment on the relationship between Obama and the former Weather Undeground terrorist Bill Ayers. Said Axelrod: "Bill Ayers lives in his [Obama's] neighborhood. Their kids attend the same school. They're certainly friendly, they know each other, as anyone whose kids go to school together." At the time of Axelrod's statement, Ayers' three children were in their late twenties and early thirties, whereas Obama's two daughters, Sasha and Malia, were aged six and nine, respectively.

Some critics contend that Axelrod possesses similar radical associations as Obama. Besides his alleged early communist mentors, Axelrod sat on the finance board of Chicago’s St. Sabina Catholic Church, where Michael Pfleger -- a longtime supporter of Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan -- serves as pastor. St. Sabina’s official website listed Axelrod as a member of its “Raise the Roof” committee. Alongside Axelrod’s name was an open letter from Pfleger asking for $1 million in contributions.

Axelrod has used his White House position to attack conservatives. He publicly declared that Fox News is “not really a news station”; he characterized Israel's construction of settlements in the Arab section of Jerusalem as an “affront” and an “insult” to the Palestinian people and the peace process; and he derided the Tea Party movement. “I think any time that you have severe economic conditions, there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that’s unhealthy,” he said in April 2009 regarding that movement.

This explains why some of the people ‘protesting’ couldn't read the signs they were carrying. It'd be one beefy white union guy and a bunch of Hispanics.

And the press? They're buying this 'grassroots' rent-a-crowd protest hook line and sinker. Fools.

Spread this also to any local business impacted negatively by these protests.

They may be actionable in court for civil and class-action settlements.

The city if NYC may also initiate proceedings to clawback overtime police and other expenses.
