A parasitical oligarchy is bleeding this country dry, and you bravely come out to trash the people who have enough guts to stand up to it?
Have you no shame?
I've worked hard, gone to school, and have had success on my own terms. I don't want anything I didn't work for, and I'm the 99%.

Congrats!! Then get behind the right movement, friend, and stop supporting those misguided fools! I'm with you!! Occupy the Fed, not Wall Street! The FED are the real bastards ruining the system.

www.shtfplan.com...

As the Wall Street Protests and those spreading around the country are being systematically bastardized and appropriated by those who promoted the election of President Obama, pushed for corporate lobbying, and the massive unions that claim government is the problem, yet ask for more government intervention into our economic, financial, and political lives, there are still some voices that remain true to the original message and intent of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement.

While you will undoubtedly see mainstream media provide airtime for the incoherent messages and talking points of labor leaders, so-called activists for the working man like multi-millionaire Michael Moore, political hacks, debt ridden students looking for handouts, and operatives of the corporate elite, what you won’t see is the following video of a young man delivering a passionate speech (sans teleprompter, of course) denouncing the monetary policy of the federal reserve, fractional reserve lending, Washington’s involvement in State’s rights, and excessive taxation of the citizenry. Additionally, he warns of the serious consequences that will ultimately result from inaction and misguided policy decisions.

Explain that to the people that can't get jobs because of one reason or another.


I'd be glad to! Excuses are like A**holes. Everybody has one and nobody wants to hear yours! There are plenty of jobs. They might not be the job of your dreams but they pay $$. If you can't make it in the most prosperous nation in the world then look inside yourself. It's not America. It's you!!

You don't start out at the dream job. You need a little luck and a lot of hard work to get that.

By the way, the military is always hiring!! Oh wait, that doesn't fit your lifestyle!


There are over 14 million unemployed. There are not over 14 million available paid positions. Therefore, there are not "plenty of jobs." Stop lying.

Around here, there are thousands of applicants per job opening. That proves that even the government statistic of 5 applicants per opening is a lie. When Meijer held open interviews back in spring 2010 for 222 positions, over ten thousand people showed up. That is a lot higher than five applicants per opening. And Meijer only paid a little over minimum wage, so the people quite obviously weren't being picky.

Uh...then move to where the jobs are! There is no lack of jobs in the conservative state of Texas where I live. How is protesting gonna help? How is getting mad at Wall Street going to create jobs?? How is locking up the bankers going to create jobs?

I know there have been people in OWS who have made statements like "capitalism has
got to go" and whatnot. Personally I think it's dip#s like Michael Moore and others like
him who are trying to hijack these protests for their own agenda. Sure there are some
that feel that way, but you have to remember, the media are being threatened by these
protests as well and they are going to do whatever they can to make these people look
ridiculous or violent or confused or whatever.

Yes the government is at fault. But in case you haven't noticed, our leaders get their
marching orders from the banks and corporations. They own the goverment,
so technically, they are our government now.


Those who call for an end to capitalism tend to not understand that we don't even have capitalism right now. The wealthy used their power and money to make laws to where it is next to impossible for someone to compete with them, at least at a legal level.

They still remain brainwashed about certain things. For example, they want free college education. A college education does not mean you will end up with anything other than a scrap of paper at the end of the journey. They remain in the propoganda sold to them that college means success. The public education system sells itself as a product. Their product is one that traps a mind's creativity into a mental box. The mind cannot get past the education equals success mindset. The truth is that their kind of education makes you to where you are dependent upon others in a way that can be anti-survival.

It is nice that they are venting their frustrations though. Perhaps if they are led out of the mental box that society entrapped them in then they can see how there are other ways besides college to get ahead. Much of what is 'learned' in college can be learned through the same textbooks at home without the huge expense. I have two degrees. All we did was learn the textbook. Some of what is in the textbooks are just someone's opinion and may or may not even be based in reality. Colleges graduate people who are even more boxed into their realities.

I think most would be better off not going to college at all. Most would be better off not being 'educated' past learning math, grammar, and how to read.

The outsourcing of jobs and the wholesale selling out of America by the banks and TPTB is where the money went. Rally against them.

wait back up and lets get this straight

there are over 14 million unemployed real numbers put that up to 25 million add another 50 million on welfare.

those are the numbers and all from the failed social engineering that has led us to this place and time

makes no sense to me to go after the people who finance all that further doesnt make any sense when they pay the large part of taxes in this country those some will argue but none can argue the fact they pay the largest amount of property taxes and all local and state count on for providing services.

going after the wrong people in the words of james carvell " ITS THE GOVERNMENT ..............."

LET'S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT HERE AND NOW :

THIS MOVEMENT'S TARGET IS NOT THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND IS DIRECTED SOLELY AND SQUARELY AT TPTB AND THE BANKS!

The banks and TPTB want an end to the USA as we know it so it'd be that much easier for them to take over the nation as it stands now with the Gov't in the way prevents a total takeover. To attack the Gov't is flat out and dead wrong.

In hosting America's largest population of illegal immigrants, California bears a huge cost to provide basic human services for this fast growing, low-income segment of its population. A new study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) examines the costs of education, health care and incarceration of illegal aliens, and concludes that the costs to Californians is $10.5 billion per year.

Illegal Immigration Costs California Over Ten Billion Annually


How Ironic is this???????

A State with more handouts then any,Where lawmakers dont know how to balance ANY budget,but......................
Its the Bankers fault????

Really?

You do know where you are right? The views you hold or support seem to fit a very small portion of a conspirecy theory board.. As far as the real world goes, the things people talk about here all day are crazy and the ideas most of you hold scare the normal person. Not because they are right or too close to the truth, but because anyone can see just what kind of America we would have with those ideals in place.

15.He is the "Token Black" and are so racist that they will not entertain the idea of an African American as POTUS. Look at how fast they threw Michael Steele under the bus when he started to agree with Dem principles over how minorities are treated. Cain sold out the African Americans.


Thats a hell of a thing to say. Herman Cain is not a "token black". I guess that makes Obama "the half token black President"? WTH? Herman Cain is a heck of a man. Nobody but a racist sees him as anything other than a fine upstanding, responsible, successful intelligent man. I can't wait to vote him in as the next President of the United States, and I wont be voting for him because he is black. I will be voting for him because he is a quality human being.

Your statement is another fine example of how the left works. The call us racist, then when a black man runs, the left uses racial slurs against him like "token black", oreo, Uncle Tom, etc... Now we see who the real racists are.

California is broke because most of Hollywood is members of Scientology who give everything they make to the church and it gives nothing back to the state.

Your back and allegiance is with the banks and TPTB. It is established that on this day you have formally threw your nation under the bus. Your true colours have now been shown, no backing out, no nothing. You are apart of the problem since you have yet to bring forth one solution. Everytime you attack me just proves my point.

Do not ever reply to me as you are a shill and this proves it.

Hook, line, sinker, SUNK!

AGENT PROVOCATEUR IDENTIFIED!
POTENTIAL THREAT TO ATS IDENTIFIED!
TROLL ALERT, TROLL ALERT, TROLL ALERT!
