When the GOP moves into the White House and takes over the U.S. Senate you will
see the unemployment fall to 4%.


And what makes you say that given that they doubled it last time?

The housing bubble popped.
--------
All we need is a capitalist in the White House and some thing new.

The last - something new - was the World Wide Web. Jobs - Jobs - Jobs!

Companies like Google, Yahoo & eBay appeared out of nowhere.
---------
For now we will let George Soros make his move.
The communists have truly come out of the bushes.
Jesse Jackson Jr. appears to be taking the lead in Washington DC.
Hire 15 million unemployed Americans at $40,000 each.
You too can have Marxism for the low, low, low price of only $600 Billion.
---------
It's clear that Obama and Jesse Jackson Jr. are just a couple of grad students who HATE
Free Market Capitalism.

The housing bubble popped BECAUSE of BUSH, he put the final nail in the coffin of the US economy by removing the last bit of banking regulation...so now EVERYONE was able to get loans, no matter if they were able to repay it in the future:



Looking at the figures, it's pretty clear that last time we had a GOP leader, it was an ECONOMIC DISASTER. Obama inherited that disaster, and is currently doing a pretty bad job at fixing it...but he didn't cause the crisis in the first place.

Also, you keep on talking about free market capitalism...let me ask you again: Where do you think free market capitalism is taking place? It hasn't in the US since it was founded, so I'm really not sure what the hell you're talking about


Lastly, it doesn't matter who's in power, Dems, GOP, it really doesn't matter. It's big business (especially Wall Street) that's controlling everything...and it's time this changes. Those protests are a good start

It gets even worse if you look at the actual income figures over the past 30 years





In the past 30 years, 96% of the growth of average incomes in this country have gone to the richest 10% of the country. And in the past 10 years, the incomes of the other 90% have declined.


Link

And people seriously claim the protests are absurd, when they have ALL THE RIGHT to protest this incredible injustice. For crying out loud, if 10% get 96% of income growth over 30 years, while the income of the remaining 90% actually declines, you can't claim this is right...you'd be a complete retard.

Who is saying they don't have the right to protest? I have not seen a single post stating any such thing. I have seen posts of people that do not support the protest, which is ALSO their right!

As far as being *a retard* you use this adjective often and I wonder if you have a clue how ignorant you appear each time you do?? I work with developmentally disabled people everyday, most of which are poor......I suppose it's OK to use this derogatory descriptor to make your point even though it is most offensive to some of the poorest people in the land?? What about their rights? I should think if you can get so worked up about money you think YOU should have, you'd understand they will never have as much as you..... what does IQ have to do with economical equality???

What a hypocrite! Unless of course you BELIEVE the *retarded* are inferior to yourself?

You know just well that the world "retard" is nowadays used not only in the literal sense, I could have used "idiot", "uneducated fools", or "dumbwit", or any other world if it makes you feel better. The fact remains, being against those protests is foolish given the actual economic figures backing them up

Sure, you could have...but you didn't. Instead you used a term far more derogatory to indeed, some of the poorest citizen's in the land! Very foolish if you are looking to gain understanding or agreement of your point.....

Perhaps being as insulting as possible toward anyone disagreeing with you was more the motivation behind your choice of words

you would be mistaken ... we do understand the purposes of protest (just not this one) and many of us agree it is necessary (just not in this illogical, senseless meandering and unorganized way)

what you missed is that we desire a cohesive, concise, plan of action ... what this is ... is just more Tony Baloney only in a different and less obvious form.


So have you started working on this plan of action yet or are you still sitting on your behind belittling people out there doing more than you trying to affect change?


I have been at occupy "my local city" for 3 days. Hundreds of thousands of us stand shoulder to shoulder arround the globe. How is your comfy chair?

Just curious Shamatt - you have a job? Are you using vacation hours to go out to the protests?

Are you sleeping out there?

I am on long term sick leave due to an injury which was the result of poor health and safety by my employer - it was easier and cheaper for them to pay the injury insurance than to provide a safe workplace.
I slept out there for 3 days. I will be doing so again at some point.

Why do you ask these questions?

Your posts clearly shows that you don't have a clue about economics. To repeat it again: The US isn't a free market capitalism economy!!! It simply isn't, no matter how often you repeat it. That's why saying it's "here to stay" shows a lack on knowledge.

If you want to get a clue, watch the following Bloomberg video...it highlights the issues nicely:

I think Ross Perot would disagree with you.

If it's not free market capitalism then why does George Soros hate it so much?

Why is Obama trying to transform the current system into some twisted sick form
of socialism? Give it a rest. The Iron Fist of Socialism will not replace our current
Free Market Capitalism. You are also wasting your time with stupid word games.

Because he wants a free market economy???

Right now, it isn't, watch the video...which you clearly haven't because you replied quicker than the video's long


It's not a free market economy because:

1) Banks and corporations received a taxpayer-funded wellfare check beyond anything the people receive.
2) Massive companies like BP receive BILLIONS in subsidies they don't need.
3) Import/export taxes and protectionism
4) Disproportionate salaries screwed towards the top 1%. Goldman reported a quarterly loss of half a billion, yet paid $1.6b in boni...funded through tax payers! Why don't they care about losses? Because it's not a free market economy and they KNOW the government (the one they pay off) will bail them out on the backs of taxpayers.

And the list goes on...

It's EXACTLY what the protestors are against, and anyone with knowledge about the economy should seet that they're right.

And quit it with that phony "socialsim" talk. Asking to stop the widening of the income gap isn't socialism, and no one is saying companies aren't allowed to make a profit...just that it shouldn't cost the tax payer and regular folk. You might wanna look up the definition of socialism because you don't seem to know what it means...



The Iron Fist of Socialism will not replace our current free market capitalism...


You really have to stop repeating that nonsense, I've just explained to you why it's NOT free market capitalsim in the US

Figured if you had a job you wouldn't be out there for 3 days.

What did your employer do to make it an unsafe work environment?

Here I agree with it... It is a capitalistic model with some socialistic controls placed on it to keep out the monopolies and oligopolies that plagued the early 20th century.

There is the light of truth.

It IS a capitalistic model.

All the bailouts were a mistake. Apparently, FEAR has a way getting our representatives
to impose socialistic - band aids -.

I think George Soros truly HATES our capitalistic model and wants to replace it with socialism.

The communists have begun to come out of the bushes.

Jesse Jackson Jr. wants to offer the 15 million unemployed Americans a - guaranteed salary -
of $40,000 a year. That is socialism.
All for the low, low, low price of only $600 Billion.

Call it corporate socialism...because those Wall Street firms received way more than anything the people got. Why? Because they took over the government, which is exactly what the protestors are against. It's beyond me how anyone could argue against that stance.

Not only did they receive massive wellfare checks, the government also bought their bad mortgages which it still holds...just no one's talking about it, hoping people will forget that at one point, that can of worms has to be opened. It unless the protestors succeed, it's gonna be the lower and middle class paying dearly for those toxic mortgages, NOT the companies that caused the issue in the first place...you know, those companies they're protesting against
