youre right. nobody should profit from anything. ever.

seriously, how do you think that is at all possible?

the only reason you get paid for working is because you are earning somebody else more than they are paying you. take this all the way up the chain, and somebody is probably making some good money. that is just how it works when you have a monetary system. deal with it. spend less time complaining and more time working hard and starting your own deal, so you can be at the top.

so sick of whiney idiots who think that nobody should make any money and if you are youre evil. well wtf are you doing to give everything you earn to others? oh yeah, youre on wall street crying about people stealing your money or some childish garbage all while wasting millions of dollars of tax money that YOU ARENT EVEN PAYING.

go push your bartering system BS somewhere else. its not reality, it doesnt work. it wont work.

Actually this whole thing started with Thestargateisreal saying ther are some appealing things about communism. No one has actually called for it to replace the representative government in place.

The irony is that some of those appealing things are already part of the current system.

Yeah, Communism is appealing ON PAPER. Kumbaya and all that crap. Then, anyone who's lived under its thumb (or is it a massive hammer?) will tell you how much it sucks.

You need to wake up and do some research, like "who" registered occupywallstreet.org and who's REALLY behind this movement, and what they want. These people want Communism, and this OWS crap is their first step toward getting the brain dead sheep in lathered up fury.

I'll prefer a system that will give me the opportunity to make as much, or as little as I'm willing to put into my job/dreams.

I wish I could remember their nick or I had saved the link of what I think was the BEST summation of the protest to date, I would love to give them credit!

They said OWS is like protesting world hunger with a big mac in your hand


Because adbusters is behind the organizing, and they are all anti-corporate.

To be honest I agree with high taxes on the obscenely rich. I'd say make the number a little less rigid and have it start to gradually increase after you gross 1 million, and get all the way up to 50% for anyone that made 30 million or more in one year. No one needs that kind of money. Donations would be encouraged obviously.

Also, in a real democracy, it would probably come to pass. People in that income bracket are the minority.

What part of "nobody is asking for communism" are you having trouble with.

Yep. They even do it outside of school with T-Ball and the likes. Nobody wins. You might hurt someone's fragile feelings. It's insane. Since I got out of the Navy, I've worked at a computer, and don't get much exercise. I'm addicted to Deli Cioso burritos (local Mexican place). I'm 250 pounds now (fat bastard)! Should I get a gold medal in a marathon? Why not? Ohhhhh, the pain, it hurts my feelings. HA!

What part of "The assholes funding OWS ARE WANTING COMMUNISM" are you having trouble with? Have you done ANY research?!?! Or, are you blindly following what the morons in the crowd are saying?

I'm not even listening to what the morons in the crowd are saying.

The powers that run this show (which according to some are the communists) will throw them a bone (a little more socialism) and the 1% will continue being the 1%.

Reminds me of the presidential roster. Someone that I agree with on some things, and can't agree with on many others. Your point?

That's just a few. How about our little friend Kalle Lasn.
en.wikipedia.org...

I'm sure you can all use Google to do some more of your own research.

I saw this bizarre vid that totally creeped me out I can't remember if it was this thread or not but at one of these protests around the country now they had people echoing...and all the supporters think its so cool how they are doing this. It was a single leader....various ppl taking turns. The crowd would repeat what the speaker said, and then...**since clapping makes it hard for some people to be heard the crowd was told to hold their hands up and wiggle their fingers instead of applauding.

Weird enough if you ask me...but THEN the leaders were all saying things about how everyone was equal, no human being mattered more than the other....and the crowd would repeat it

Like fricking parrotts

Then wave their hands in the air wiggling their fingers

Leader: blah blah blah

crowd: blah blah blah wiggle wiggle wiggle

reminded me of a kindergartener class. Then after all that hoopla..they didn't didn't let the guest speaker be heard..

LOL, funny in and eerrie
