SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Yes, tax the Super Rich. Tax them now. Before the other 99% rise up, trigger a new American Revolution, a meltdown and the Great Depression 2.
Revolutions build over long periods — to critical mass, a flash point. Then they ignite suddenly, unpredictably. Like Egypt, started on a young Google executive’s Facebook page. Then it goes viral, raging uncontrollably. Can’t be stopped. Here in America the set-up is our nation’s pervasive “Super-Rich Delusion.”

How much more should we tax the rich?
Is another 5% enough?
At what level of income is someone considered to be rich?

That is why the universe gave us single man examples of what the 99% should do:
1. peaceful revolution

John F Kennedy Jr.
I said as much earlier at GLP and got banned. Just shows they have an agenda and are supported by the same people they claim to despise. I am sure within days their site will lose most of the intelligent users and content. I support the movement and will not bow to tptb.
This is a massive global political and spiritual awakening.
Humanity is tired of the lies, manipulation, and lack of freedom, liberty and well-being.
Engineered and orchestrated by the global 1% internationally wealthiest elite!
The world is tired of war, destruction, poverty and division.
We are ready to end this nightmare.
The truth cannot be suppressed forever.
A different way of life and care for the planet is in order and is HAPPENING NOW TOO!
PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE WAKING UP AND LIVING IN A MORE HARMONIOUS WAY WITH THE PLANET. ALL THE PROTESTS ALL OVER THE WORLD IS HUMANITY BEGINNING TO THROW UP A GREAT SICKNESS THAT HAS BEEN FESTERING IN THE STOMACH OF THE 99% for a long time. ONCE THE 99% THROW UP the 1% can smell it and maybe just maybe, they will give the 99% a vehicle for wich to make the world a beautiful and sustainable peaceful place for 5-10 billion people for the next eternity.
WE SHOULD ALL BE VERY HAPPY CHANGE IS COMING
message to the 99%
be peaceful, or you go here,
just dont give up because if done right and the 99% win then the 99% and the 1% become the 100%,
(and no one is hurt).
Think about it. People get injured every day for stealing, and almost every day if not every day, someone dies in the world because they got caught stealing or robbing.
Now we have a case where a very few individuals (politicians and corporations hand in hand) have usurped all aspects of wealth for said 99% for many generations.
I SAY BRING THEM TO JUSTICE IN A PEACEFUL WAY.
WE ARE MAD AS HELL AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE
but we feel great inside that we are mad as hell and when we are mad as hell,
because in the end its just like having a big 100 million people strong tantrum for a lolly pop,
only the lolly pop is a new sustainable way of supporting life on the planet, putting a little purpose back in peoples pockets, and stopping the chemtrails for sure! that effects everyone, even the president. We need real leaders where every human being gets an opportunity to lead, not that its an ultra exclusive cult that is hell bent on population control.

The question is, do you have the balls to answer or do you let it go to voicemail?

Star for a well thought out and eloquently laid out post.
I don't know if I agree with everything you said.
I have a feeling that I just don't WANT to agree with it.
