This is insane. Can't anyone see this is a war for your mind and soul! One take a good look at this picture ring finger on the right and clearly
Muslim. Occupy wall street is not anonymous but a gathering of fear and anger used by the jihadist amoung us against us!!
Unions are backing this movement now like they did in the middle east and now it's on our shores creeping into our backdoors and infiltrating into a
wolf in sheepskin clothing. Please do some research into caliphate and Muslim brotherhood doctrine, for crying out loud do not share this with your
children. Your mind and fears are being used against you and you can't even see it.
Who is in fear and/or angry? Sorry, but love and tolerance is the key. Those old paridigms of "US vs Them" are done and finished for all sides
(including the "Caliphate"). If you "fear" perhaps you are not walking the the walk. It is easy to love those that love you, but to love the
unlovely and those that respond negatively to your deeds of kindness that is one of the highest callings. [ Mat 5:44 and Mat 25:31-46 just to mention
And for those who do not believe in a D or T-heism, the Spaghetti Monster or Bob Dobbs, don't worry about my beliefs, believe what you will as each
and everyone of us has his own heart and mind to follow (a good read would be poet, Jorge Borges', "Garden of Forking Paths"
understanding of our individuality and social relationship).
Either we'll somewhat understand each other or we will not grasp each others ideas, but we are still merely humans together on Earth. Our differences
might never be settled but as modern folks like, Thoreau, Gandhi and King have shown - Tolerance is the only answer
. (or death)
Humans are socially evolving beyond brittle/hateful dogma and money/power politics - beyond fear and anger. Socially evolve or become stagnated, it
doesn't matter to anyone else. Whether Humanist, Christian, Buddhist, Taoist or Atheist or red/blue, left/right we are the only humans here. Of
course there will always be those who will come in misunderstanding, anger, fear, and hate and trolls will be trolls.
Discussion threads sharing ideas is good (if not even just for the mere amusement and mental gymnastics), but fear mongering and directing hatred
towards other humans is dumb and smart folks are not being fooled (or trolled) by it anymore.
@Optimistprime78 - Unions are as American as Woody Guthrie and child labor laws and overtime pay.
Americans don't hate the US government (our sanitation workers, our street crews etc.) anymore than anyone group hates their government or ideas, but
improvement can always be made in all aspects of life from personal to social to political - the old power ideologies (which worked in their time
frame) are quickly becoming obsolete. The imbalance of power between the haves and have nots has tipped the scales. Americans will still be
Americans, the French will still wanna be French and Spanish still will be Spanish nobody can change those things.
@ Optimistprime78, exactly how do you think it would even be possible for a "Caliphate" to take over the minds and souls of Americans? Do you think
women (half of us) are going to start wearing burkas and rescind all of the advances the western cultures have made?
What about the millions who go to their respective Churches, Temples and such, are they just gonna leave their beliefs behind?
How do you think anyone could usurp our way of being, it is our lives? i think most folks like having roads, garbage removal, helping tornado and
flood victims etc. Do you think these good folks are Stupid and easily fooled?
What is being spoken is that everyone
be heard not just those with power and money. Read the twitter feeds @#OWS and #OccupyWallStreet - this
- We the People
- go to the livefeeds, read the stream
. There is not an agenda or a conspiracy here - this
is our fellow Americans, even some tea party groups are now "getting it" and joining
Please, Optimistprime78, hold on to your ideals and beliefs, but follow the links and truly become informed.
The paradigm is shifting (finally). Do Unto Others (the golden rule) is progressing
For those who are afraid (or simply cynical) become informed before repeating nonesense otherwise your voice wont be heard and you'll be seen as
wanting to stir up trouble.
