Granholm: 'I love the Occupy Wall Street movement' [Mega-barf]
Current TV ^ | 11/15/11 | Current TV

Posted on 11/15/2011 7:19:24 PM PST by Numbers Guy

Jennifer Granholm, host of "The War Room," says she loves the Occupy movement and discusses what she'd like to see come out of it. She also says she's excited to join Keith Olbermann and Cenk Uygur in their coverage of the protests, which balances the mainstream media's focus on scattered clashes with police and other skirmishes.

Video at the link, if you can stand it. Rapes and other assaults, just minor details. As Uncle Joe said, you gotta break a few eggs to make a socialist omelette.

It astounds me that a woman who so thoroughly f-ed up the state of Michigan is given ANY sort of media forum more advanced than crayons and lined paper.

I hate to say this but I love OWS also because they are the only ones that are giving the banksters hell for what they did to the US and global economies and being rewarded with taxpayer bailout, and bonuses while the rest of the US must suffer from their reckless behavior. Remember no high ranking CEO banker went to jail or firms shutdown. They are too big to fail and the rest of us are too small to save. Let the Tea Party concentrate on making big gov smaller and let the OWS kick the bankers in the butt and make them fear for their lives. Once the bankers are cut down to size we should deal with the OWS movement.

So is this the banker’s fault or the governments?

I contend it was all the fault of the government. If they kept out of it, bad banks, with their bad managers, would have failed, and there is your punsihment for bad bankers.

Why are we subsidizing bad behavior with the people’s money, and why do you want to make criminal stupid actions on the part of the bankers?

Great. An upper middle class attorney from Northville who was Wayne County counsel and US Attorney pretending to be working class.

That's not even getting to the damage she caused this state. She was the worst governor in my lifetime, and I've had bad ones. Milliken, Blanchard, and so far Snyder are not exactly good either.

The occupiers are on par with the nazi brownshirts and have zero valid purpose in civilized society. Nothing but rabid animals who attack whatever target their puppet masters in the shadows point out for them.

Attacking Michele Bachmann for pete's sake and she actually has a consistent history of opposing bailouts.

They don't want the banks to be smaller, they want the banks to be gone and bankers dead so we can all "share" the money (if we agree with them anyway)

Gold is not neccesary. I have no interest in gold. We will build a solid state, without an ounce of gold behind it. Anyone who sells above the set prices, let him be marched off to a concentration camp. That's the bastion of money.

You really need to go back and read up on what happened. Barry’s gestapo dragged many of the bankers into a room and forced them to take the money. Most didn’t want it and tried to not take it. The gestapo made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. That commie piggy Barry and his clown buddy, Georgie Soros brought on most of this mess.

OWS aren't doing shit to banks. They were protesting the Americans for Prosperity conference and riots. They ignored Goldman Sachs. They ignored George Soros.

Don't be fooled by their title.

Wake the hell up! The government threatened the banks to force them to give the loans to people they knew could never pay them back under the liberal socialist “American Reinvestment Act”

Whenever a conservative tried to rein in Freddy-mac and Fannymae, Chris Dudd and Barney Frankenfurter called them “racist” an the liberal socialist blocked all attempts to stop the forced loans to minorities who could not pay them back!

The banks and the bankers did the only thing they could, loaned the money, then sold the worthless paper to someone else in order to stay in business.

Stop spewing your liberal socialist talking points and look at the real facts!

I know it’s not a popular opinion here, but I see it about the same way you do.
The fact that so many bankers are still collecting salaries and bonuses is IMHO BS. I know one of the arguments here is that it’s governments fault, but I think it’s nearly impossible to separate government from special interests lobbyists anymore and that goes for both parties and a majority of all elected officials.

“So how is going around raping people, smoking pot, refusing to take a bath and leaving garbage all over the place, going to help the situation?”

It’s certainly gotten media talking about it.
And while the weirdos living in the parks are mostly just what you’d expect, plenty of average people that I know support this as well. You’re going to believe what you want to believe, but the economic situation is going to hit critical mass. There’s way to many people who did it right for years that are now finding themselves screwed. When those same people look at bankers bailing out with multi million dollar parachutes leaving the economy in ruins they tend to feel angry.
It’s both parties and most of the career senators and congressmen. Imo they’re all on the take and they’re all owned by the same group.

I’ve got a friend of mine who is not political. He’s a musician and hasn’t ever made very much money. He says there’s nothing like a global economic meltdown to make him feel better about his own decisions because while he may not have very much he at least lived the life he wanted and a lot of people he grew up with that took the responsible road are now in worse shape than he is, even after working a steady job for 20 years.

I didn’t say you should be impressed. I simply pointed out why I don’t find them offensive as some here.
IMO the bankers and the government are the same set of thieves.
I don’t have a problem with anybody pointing that out and if this gets enough people stirred up to get term limits or big time special interests money out of government, well I don’t care who got the ball rolling.

So what. They’re right about the government having been sold out. As long as being a congressman or a senator is a gateway to major wealth, IMO you’ll never have government for the people by the people.

“They don’t seem to have that much of a problem with the current White House Occupant, or Pelosi, or Harry Reid, etc.”

The bit of it I’ve seen, which by my own admission isn’t very much, they seem to have a problem with almost everybody in government that they see is beholden to interests other than their constituents. And they seem to be against the special interests being able to warp the government by buying it. I thought that was why they were purposely not putting up people as leaders so it didn’t get hijacked by either political party..
Look I get it get you hate them, so as far as you’re concerned everything they do is wrong. I’m not going to try to talk you out of that.
I see you’re a Florida Gator. I hate Tebow, but me hating him doesn’t make him any less of a good football player.

Lol. I don’t really hate Tebow, I don’t follow football enough to care. I just was using that to make a point that while I may cringe when I see how embarrassing some of the OWS group can be. That doesn’t negate any valid points they have.
I’m more about achieving my ends over disagreeing with somebody just because they look funny. I think they have it right on special interest money having too much sway in our government. I think that breeds waste and corruption and whatever I feel about the protesters as people doesn’t negate that.

Hard to debate a reasonable statement like that. You disagree so I’m a brownshirt Lol.
As far as taking down the banks. I keep my money in a CU and have for years. I don’t think the people camping in parks will be the ones to get anything fixed. I do however think that this has caught the attention of a lot of average Americans who agree that banks and other special interests hold way too much sway over our government.

So I take it then that you support special interest money corrupting our federal government.

Like I said earlier, the fact that they look weird doesn’t negate the parts that they got right. There is too much corruption in the federal government and special interest money is a large part of that.
