Find me one of these so called "jobs" you say they are creating! You can't because anything you do find is either in fast food or retail.


A job is still a job.

Not akin to the Progressive talking point crap pitched by many. But, it still is a job.

Committing a direct and blatant character assassination are we? Real mature!

Her experiences are different then yours but neither yours nor hers deserves to be demonized and discredited.

The 99% are standing up so that you aren't being forced to fight the Big Banks and Oil's war for them.

Attack me and you will be reported to the Mods!

You really need to get out of Jersey. Your personal view is skewed.

Who are you? Why are you even here? You are the smokescreen trying to derail this movement. It is bigger then you, I, the uniform you wore, this nation. Get lost!

California, Florida, Michigan, New York, Colorado, Texas and the rest are all in shambles.

You are apart of The 99% so start acting like it.

I've had experiences with things that a clearcut majority people on ATS currently will not ever see or get to do.

Oh, so above the fray. Or, that ATS member who is "In the Know".


Lets look at those states, shall we.
California.

The utopian platform. Any wonder why it is in shambles?
Florida. Controlled by the AARP crowd. AARP has huge ties to what party again?
Michigan. Dem controlled since what again?
NY. Lets just leave it at that.
Colorado. Dem controlled as well.
Texas. Yeah, um looks like they are doing just fine.

You know what the next step is after peaceful protesting? V-I-O-L-E-N-C-E. Since you don't support the protesting then I can only assume you want the latter if you want something to change.

Sure sure.

And no, I am an individual that does not need the collective in order to succeed in life, and I will continue to act that way.

I can see past any facade you put up. I am also smarter then you and will not resort in the process of attacking my fellow countrymen and women.

Attack that of which you cannot control. You are current military with no hope for a job outside of the service which makes you apart of The 99%!

From the mouth of the Progressive Revolutionary.

You will back us protesting or shot.

And this is better then the current system how?

Either conform to the Govt, or the mass of Communist/Socialist/Marxists.


Hhhmmm. Gonna have to ponder this for a bit.

There have been a couple of questions related to the authors intent and whether there was a paycheck involved. I've run into internet brigade members here before and in my opinion this members job is to post incendiary threads aimed at a particular subject.

If you read the OP carefully you will notice the underlying agenda is political. Perhaps the author of this flaming thread is employed by one of those "Ken Dolls" the republicans are putting in the arena in the hopes we will only notice their wonderful looks and charm and not worry about the fact that they sold their soul to the reptiles (banks and corporations).

Our poorest members of society will have most if not all of the following:

1. Food to eat : WIC, Foodstamps, Shelters, or Purchase own food ( Store, Fastfood)
2. A Place to stay: Own home, or shelter
3. Cable/Satellite TV
4. Wide Screen TV's

And the list goes on. I see what the OP is trying to say. Even at America's worst we are still better off than others.

I too am fed up with the system, but we should protest what we need to protest. The Government, "Big Bankers", "Wall Street" can't bribe those who are not willing to take it. We clean house....if you want to KEEP your elected seat you will do as we say.

Side Note: I am not sure if the protests ended the war or not. Regardless how the general populace felt about the war WE had NO right treating our soldiers the way we did. While of the Pot heads were doping it up and sexing it up while our men were getting killed for doing their job.

When did socialism start in America? Not under Obama's watch...look to the 60's and 70's...."FREE love man"

END RANT

Yep, because the statements and opinion differs from yours and several others, then the OP MUST then be a paid Rep plant.

So, what about those that back the protests? Must either be paid by Moveon.org, Sorros or the Unions then I guess.

What kind of movement is this? Who is leading it? What is the agenda?

It is a spontaneous civil event, led by everyone with no real agenda.

Have you ever been pushed against a wall by a bully? Was there, in that episode, a moment of absolute clarity where fear and thoughts of injury or ramifications of action faded and all that remained was peace, stillness, suspension of time and absolute awareness of what was going to happen next? Did you feel your fist balled up in anticipation and sense the pending impact of flesh on flesh, bone on bone, the warm, wet feel of spilt blood and bruised tissue? Did you know, unequivocally, that you were about to be the swift and awful instrument of temporal destruction against the agent of your oppression? When you did, did you smile, empowered by the surety of fear, shock and terror your blows would inflict upon him? Then, after all, did you strike?

No more fear. No more horrible anticipation. No more egg-shell walking. No more watching your back and leaping at sounds and shadows.

Stillness.
Peace.
Resolve.

Action.

Years later. Alone. How did your decisions affect you?

Did you strike, knowing that this would be, fundamentally, a pivotal event in your interaction with this bully, and all subsequent bullies fro the rest of your human existence? Or did you allow yourself to be degraded and humiliated, over and over and over…wishing that you had, at that pivotal moment, taken that illogical swing and changed the course of your life?

Are you, by virtue of your past actions / inactions, a victim or are you empowered?
If you chose to endure then, ask yourself this:
“If I could go back and change things, how would things be different?”

The bully is back. In a big, bad way and is pushing us against a wall. Should we wait and sign a petition? Tell the teacher knowing that any and all sanctions against the bully only enrages them more and sets us up for a real thrashing in some back alley? Or do we stand up and give him a shiner and knock out a few teeth, make him more aware of his own actions by reversing roles?

You, the teacher-tellers, the rule junkies, the hall monitors, the arm chair critics, the should-coulda-woulda crowd…. step aside and let the parking lot crew handle this one. We always have. We always will.

As you lie awake in bed at night alone with your thoughts and all of your insecurities and inadequacies, remember that we, the rejects, the freaks, the hippies, the skate punks, the Emos, the Goths, The rockabilly rednecks, etal, are out here slugging it out with the biggest baddest bully the world has ever known because we, collectively, have been pushed around enough.
We just can’t live with ourselves if we don’t blacken an eye or two.

You better hope we win, because if we don’t the bully will be looking for some geeky kid to pick on out of pure hate and aggression, someone that stands apart from the herd and looks scared….that just might be you.

Oh I see... we were supposed to PAY for love. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

People love throwing lables around that they clearly don't understand. Socialism? Is someone advocating state ownership of Wall Street and the big banks? Did I miss something? Or is doing business within the context of social responsibility now Socialism? Is anything other than allowing businesses to do whatever they want in the interest of 'captialism' now considered Socialism?
