In U.S., Satisfaction Dips to 17% at Year's End
www.gallup.com...



Seventeen percent of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the United States, the low point in a year of generally low satisfaction levels. The economy and unemployment continue to be the most important problems according to the American public.



Well you would expect this considering US economy and the situation in Afghanistan.

What does this mean?

Is it getting worse?

Or is this as bad as it can get?

Before the bounce back?

Or will there ever be a bounce back, what if the economy is not a ball, what if the economy is an egg, if it hits the ground, it splatters all over the place?

What are your thoughts on this??

What it means is that 81% don't like how they are being treated by Government..

But as usual, 99.9% will sit on their ass and do nothing...

Since starting some violent revolution is kind of what they seem to want, what we need to do is take a page from MLK or Gandhi and practice mass civil disobedience.

In other words start getting together in large groups and peacefully interrupting the flow of day-to-day life in this country until things start changing, however is most effective.

Look at what black people had to go through in the 1960's just to be treated equally to white people. They'd have protests, marches, whatever, and would get sprayed down with firehoses, have dogs unleashed on them, shot with rubber bullets, real bullets, get beaten... Can you imagine what it's going to take to cut out the tumor that has infested the fed and the rest of our social structure today? It's ridiculous to even think about.

But we don't have much of a choice but to think of something, do we? Unless we all think, as a poster above mentioned, that 99.9% of us sitting around on our asses is eventually going to result in something good happening to us. Yeah, riiight. That's been working really damned well so far.


The whole situation really is frustrating....

Peaceful protesters are being spied on heavily, one ATS member even said his son is being spied on, even though his son is not a protester, but he is.

This is his words, not mine.

It makes one wonder, his son wasn't given a job in the defence because his dad is a protesters.

What it means is that people are finally waking up to the fact that they have been sold out by Corporations across the country (all across the West actually) who have put quarterly returns a. of the long term economic health of their prime markets (by outsourcing production, and massively foreign sourcing finished goods)...and have not been adequately protected from unfair trade practices, by their "Free Trade" crusading Governments.

Tariffs and other measures are in order...

Sooner would be good. Now would be better.

What exactly should they be protesting? "Make us more satisfied"? "Fix the economy"?

The problem is, you're not going to get a significantly large group of like-minded people to agree to one strategy. So what should they be protesting?

Unlike the Civil Rights movement for the African Americans, the issue here is hardly clear cut.

It means thier angry at governemnt as another here stated, and are unhappy mostly...because of hte job situtation, thier jobs being shipped overseas via the corporations....better wake up everyone. government isnt going to do a damn thing for any of us and you. capitalism needs to go* democracy needs to be the main ting agian. at least under democracy, everyone had a job, thier was plenty of money for the average college graduate and white/blue collar guy. under capitalism, that was given to illegals or people form india coming here willing to work for less n do more, without giving a damn about the people here in this country. capitalism is a good thing* as long as it was intended for any american to have a chance. thier always was capilism under democracy, but i thought thats what democracy meant* the freedom to make as much money as you can or want* as long as yuor an american citizen and patriot* The capitalism Bush encouraged in, is lifeless, selfish, greedy and murderous.... wouldnt yuo all agree?
DOWN with capialism. under democracy yuo can make as much as yuo want an still keep government in line for you

In other news, 19% are brainless retards who should be shipped to North Korea.

Seriously, those people don't deserve to be Americans. They like the situation the US is in? Seriously? Economic depression, government out of control, borders open, police state, corruption at all levels, torture, kidnapping, assassination, foreign aid to terrorist states, false-flags, ect... and you're happy with that?

Make a list of those people and put them in jail.

Not surprised at the level of dissatisfaction.. But nothing will come of it.. The public still too apathetic and with all the divisions (race, political affiliations, religious etc) theyre too divided to even attempt to take any action... The situation will continue to deteriorate with the government seizing even more control..

We can do a synthesis of both.
We must find one organizing point to fight.
The governments & major corporations are run by the same international think tanks and via proxy, the same elite cabal.
The one thing that needs to be understood by the majority is that the government doesn't represent the people, and we need to take it back.

It won't come from demanding change from within the system.
It will only come by demanding change from within the white house, & every state capital building by tens of millions of Americans all across this country, all at once.

I'm talking physically occupying the major state & federal buildings. We're camping out and demanding the shenanigans stop. We're not going to stand down until a new constitution and order for this land is established.


All it takes is a wise date, slogan, and logo.
Business cards.
Websites.
Let the message go viral.
Empower the people...

It's time has come.
We will not be trampled on any further.


You think the military will fire on it's citizens??
Bull#!
Who is counting on violence?
They won't get it.
They will get a flood of people filled with conscience, heart, and the spirit of humanity that no army on this earth would dare go against.


Just say the word.
Make it so.
Let's get to it already.

SIGHHhhhh Protests DO NOTHING!

The elite have the full attention of Congress.

While 97% of farmers and horseman were screaming they did not want livestock traceability, the "Research Paper" (thankyou wikileaks) handed to Congress stated how the MAJORITY of livestock owners WANTED traceability since it helped them sell internationally. Of course the paper was only talking about the 70,642 corporate farms out of the 2.1 million US farms. It was meant to soothe the consciences of those in Congress taking bribes from K street and give them a CYA they could wave around.

So despite protests, letter writing, e-mails, faxes, articles and "Linn Cohen-Cole's Hysteria" that went viral over the internet (all true by the way) we got traceability shoved down our throats one year later than the WTO/USDA time table.

So WHAT CAN CITIZENS DO?



The key is to remember we have been given the weapons to fight TPTB, and no I am not talking about guns.

FREE SPEECH:
Again not protests, they are useless. I am talking about communicating information. I visit Flea markets, Farmers markets and Auctions and handout index cards with a punch list to google. I ask people to tell ten of their friends and to ask them to do the same.

Second: Take a leaf out of The fully informed jury movement www.fija.org...

Inform the public and THEN pass state laws.

We have a RIGHT to a trial by jury in criminal matters or in civil matters over $20. Jurors have the RIGHT to NULLIFY laws. That is what "case law" is all about.



Informed jury amendments have been filed as an initiative in seven states and legislation has been introduced in the Alaska state legislature....

Today, the constitutions of only two states -- Maryland and Indiana -- clearly declare the nullification right, although two others -- Georgia and Oregon -- refer to it obliquely. The informed jury movement would like all states to require that judges instruct juries on their power to serve, in effect, as the final legislature of the land concerning the law in a particular case....

Those who have endorsed the right of a jury to judge both the law and the facts include Chief Justice John Jay, Samuel Chase, Dean Roscoe Pound, Learned Hand and Oliver Wendell Holmes. According to the Yale Law Journal in 1964, during the first third of the 19th century judges did inform juries of the right, forcing lawyers to argue "the law -- its interpretation and validity -- to the jury." By the latter part of the century, however, judges and state law were increasingly moving against nullification. In 1895 the US Supreme Court upheld the principle but ruled that juries were not to be informed of it by defense attorneys, nor were judges required to tell them about it... prorev.com...



The Ten Amendment (State Nullification) is another critical issue.
www.tenthamendmentcenter.com...

Another weapon, one every single one of us should be pushing for, is a state law allowing voters to recall federal Senators and Representatives as well as state officials.

Recall in the United States


The Right of Recall
...Another nine states provide language in their constitutions to recall only state officials. The other states without recall provisions for members of Congress can change their laws to adopt it. In states with the right to initiative, this can be done by a vote of the people after circulating petitions to put the change on the ballot.

Too many in Congress today are showing us that our representatives can no longer be trusted with 2-6 years in office without ongoing popular accountability. Today’s Congressional majority is threatening to dump a load of bad legislation on the country despite the public’s opposition, daring us to try to “clean it up” later. Only a Right of Recall can prevent such abuses in the future....


The biggest Achilles Heel of TPTB is the local and state governments. TPTB has tried to control it by using controlled "grassroots" organizations called NGOs who lure "Activists" into the likes of the World Wildlife Federation. SEE: www.ogiek.org...


TPTB has always run the Democrats and Republicans BUT often not at the state level!

OH and here is another State Level idea. I really want to see the Federal Reserve - Hung, Drawn and Quartered - but in the mean time this looks like an alternative.


While bank bailouts fatten Wall Street, states continue to battle the credit crisis. In the search for innovative solutions, some political candidates are proposing that states generate their own credit by setting up their own banks.


See:
CAMPAIGNING FOR STATE-OWNED BANKS: www.webofdebt.com...
THE GROWING MOVEMENT FOR PUBLICLY-OWNED BANKS: www.webofdebt.com...


The biggest weapon that TPTB has is our feeling that we are helpless. DO NOT LET THEM USE IT!
