Whether you call it Fascism or neo-feudalism (the serfs are not allowed to own property) the socialists are definately being conned by the global elite.

Over the last quarter-century, historians have by and large ceased writing about the role of ruling elites in the country's evolution. Or if they have taken up the subject, they have done so to argue against its salience for grasping the essentials of American political history. Yet there is something peculiar about this recent intellectual aversion, even if we accept as true the beliefs that democracy, social mobility, and economic dynamism have long inhibited the congealing of a ruling stratum. This aversion has coincided, after all, with one of the largest and fastest-growing disparities in the division of income and wealth in American history....Neglecting the powerful had not been characteristic of historical work before World War II. ” Source

This was certainly intentional.

The Con-game becomes very clear when you look at Maurice Strong, Father of the modern Environmental Movement. In 1970 he lead the UN Conference on the Human Environment and became Executive director of the environment program of the United Nations from 1971 to 1975. Strong says of himself he is “A socialist in ideology, a capitalist in methodology.” He is definitely a capitalist with his ties to oil and the World Bank not to mentions several insider trading scams and scandals such as the AZL Resources lawsuit,

Is Maurice Strong a humanitarian concerned with the well being of others?

There is the recent UN food for oil scandal. The US Molten Metal technology swindle involving Al Gore, tax payer money, lawsuits and a House Committee investigation. Not to mention the lawsuit to stop his plans to sell the water from the Aquifers under his ranch Baca so cheap land in the near by dry areas could be sold at a large profit. He was paid millions not to continue with his plans.

Hanne, Strong's wife, likes to tell the story of how in 1978, a mystic informed the Strong that "the Baca [ranch] would become the center for a new planetary order which would evolve from the economic collapse and environmental catastrophes that would sweep the globe in the years to come." Water Watch

Baca is sitting on not one but three of the best Aquifers in the area, oil and San Luis Valley in southern Colorado, known as one of the most productive agricultural areas in the West.

Off topic question. Do you know if this is this true? Has it already been discussed at ATS?

The United States Is In Deep Doodoo! by Michael Rivero

"...Back during the Johnson administration Charles DeGaulle demanded the United States collateralize the loans owed to France in gold and started carting out the bullion from the treasury. This caused several other nations to demand the same and President Nixon had to slam the gold window closed or the treasury would have been emptied, since the United States was even then in debt for more money than the treasury could cover in gold. But Nixon had to collateralize that debt somehow, and he hit upon the plan of quietly setting aside huge tracts of American land with their mineral rights in reserve to cover the outstanding debts

It would certainly explain why the UN has jurisdiction over the land and why the US government is intent on getting its hand on more land: Productive farm land through the bogus "food Safety bills" It also explains the timing of the start of the enviromental movement. Maurice Strong was a director of the Rockefeller foundation and Green Peace and Sierra Club are busy sucking down the Standard Oil Company from the various Rockefeller foundations.

It probably won't be long before there's a hotline/e-mail address to report people wearing the Obama/Joker t-shirts. It'll be another "teachable moment". Acorn will round them up and we'll have a good ol Bud Lite Kegger and reflect on how stupidly we've been acting.

I'm not sure what this place is anymore, but it's not America, at least not in my eyes.

Not quite the same quote, but this one would also fit better:

I get what you're saying, but I'm not talking about necessarily that though. What I was referring to was that, if we look at things at the very VERY basic level, can they really do what they try to set out to do? I ask again, do them just having a piece of paper that says "I own this land" really hold any legitimacy? especially if said "ownership" was done through wrong deeds? At the end of the day, do they not simply just have a piece of paper? How would that piece of paper hold up against a court of millions of angry americans armed to the teeth and ready to shoot these robber barons down?

They can scream till their blue in the face that they "own" the land, but once they're looking at the barrel of a .45 mm gun, (belonging to an angry father of 3, whom, his only fault was to do the decent thing, play by the rules, be honest and work, then all of a sudden have everything he worked for be "taken" from him by some mob banker) then their little "legal" piece of paper no longer really has any value does it? Yes, this same "banker" can go to the courts, and bribe the govt. to use the entire u.s. army, but how will that play out when all of a sudden millions more join that father's cause?

It's during times like those that I like to remind myself of what God says in the bible, that ALL that is in the earth and his creation is HIS, the land, the animals, the people, EVERYTHING is HIS and WE ultimately, at the end of the day, own NOTHING, and anything that we "claim" is really just a temporary lease. Is that not basically true? I mean, at the basic level, none of us, not even the bankers, can really OWN land, only pieces of paper that say they own it.

Yeah that's good.
I wonder if the OJoker is doing any more business for DC/Batman related mechandise. If it is then it's a roundabout stimulus package.

That's ok, I got plenty of them.

On topic:

'Fascism' would be a more accurate caption, even though it's being furthered under the guise of socialism. People will readily accept anything thrown their way as long as it's labeled as being 'for the public good.' (i.e. they're made to feel as though they're helping their fellow man, and getting something out of the deal for themselves). Socialism is a ruse.

It depends on how many people remember the lessons from Nazi Germany. If we stand united against the banksters/corp power in Washington DC than we have a chance of winning. However all the "You are picking on Obama because he is Black/socialist" types can not see that Obama was placed in the White House BECAUSE he is black. He is there to cause a division among the sheeple as the laws for removing our freedoms and bankrupting the country are put in place.

This picture is a perfect example of the type of thing I mean. Instead of it being looked on as a political cartoon it is the subject of indignation and horror. It even gets a news article. Look at the "Tea Parties" or "Town Hall Meetings" there is a segment of ATS members who see them as "republicans" with sourgrapes attitude instead of Americans who are fed up with a corrupt government. The banksters have them so well brain washed they happily walk to madame guillotine.

I talked to a professor with a young daughter about this. He understands what is being done to the USA. He understands our country is being bankrupted and he applauds it and says his DAUGHTER understands and accepts it. Yet the dude just bought a brand new SUV!!!

I wish we could trade a bunch of the starry eyed types for those in third world socialist states for an equal number of realists.

As some who regularly papers his city with art, I think these posters are pretty bad ass. Papering is really the only free expression out there any more.

kind of on topic:

the joker was the best character in the dark knight, he was a total badass and you couldn't hate him at all.

I'd say "socialist" is just tacked on for effect.

Oh, before I forget, I DO find this poster INCREDIBLY offensive.
I think it is completely shameful that Heath Ledger, a great actor, would be linked with Obama. Their both actors, yes, and Heath Ledger might've done some drugs like Obama did too, but Heath Ledger is nowhere near as bad as that Fascist Obama. I think that the artist should apologize and come out with a better representation for Heath Ledger, as he is certainly nowhere near as evil as Obama

On topic though, I do agree that perhaps "Fasicst" would be better, or "Why so Fascist?"

Whoever created the poster needs to do more research...

Wow. It's called political humor.

I hate to explain the joke but here goes...

Obama as the Joker is visual slam since almost every picture of him so far is airbrushed to be adored. As the Joker it's showing him in the worst light the artist could possibly imagine. Humor is in the irony.

The Socialist tag has nothing to do with our imaginary Jokers' political leaning. That's a small funny in itself. Socialism and a few other ism's apply to our Joker In Chief... (Catch the irony there?)

I found this funny take on the Bush bashing business - going out of business...

Everybody should use the image as their avatar.
Make it totally viral forever!

I think people are going to keep making fun of him and giving negative poll answers until ultimately he has to start a war just to get a rep.

Of course the media is jumping on this! No surprise there. What about all of the things people put out making fun of Bush and every other Republican president, nothing was said about that.

I think it is funny! I am using the picture now
