Here is a paper by a college professor that I think shows why the Occupy Wall Street is such an important issue. Even those who are well off know that they are not spared from the wrath of the 1% and the grip they have on everything. For many of them, it's not a matter of IF by WHEN they become just like their neighbors, struggling to eek out an existence.

Is that Lennin's reincarnated twin peeking out from behind that commie manifesto?


Hahahaha, they been outed in the news for pretending to be down and outers in the streets with the $10/hr ACORN employed homeless people of the cities, so they are trying to spin it to anything other than it really is.

Explain how it is a communist manifesto.
Explain how this guy has anything to do with down and outers.
Explain how this random guy who took his time to write a document is part of some ploy.

I mean really? You read that paper and got all of that? I want to know how.

Interesting wording in that little essay.....

I think the word that raised my eyebrows was

"dispossessed"

There is something evoked when people use that word....very powerful.

Today I was watching msnbc and the new issue of TIME was being discussed and it was all about the lack of upward mobility in the USA.

I grew up being told by my dad if I got a strong college education and worked hard I would be financially stable and secure.

My dad did not lie to me, in his day that worked, so he gave me advice based on his experience. I do not blame him, but the truth of the matter is, having a college education and a strong work ethic are simply not enough. There is so much competition for jobs, it is mind blowing. We simply have too many people, not enough jobs. It gets even worse for those who do not have advanced degrees or technical training.

There are so many facets to this problem, it is so malignant and pervasive, we could spend weeks hashing it all out, but simply put, our nations problems are rooted so deep, I struggle to see a realistic solution. Anarchy is a delicious temptation I flirt with in my darker, more pessimistic moments.

My dad said to me when I was growing up , " every generation is supposed to be better off than the one before it"

Well, from what I have seen the gen x crowd is dog paddling, barely keeping their heads above water, and the milinials are still not quite ripe enough to really judge yet, but if something does not change soon, I really feel that my dad's theories will soon be entirely obsolete.

I don't have to explain jack diddly to you but out of the sincere niceness of my heart I will point your attention to the propaganda statement at the bottom of this manifesto..."I am the 99%" and "Occupywallstreet.org".
This document is clearly stamped and labeled as propaganda, not a sincere random outpouring of enlightenment by some average person.

I'm not sure if you're serious... how is this a "commie manifesto"?
The rest of your post doesn't make any sense to me either... you're trolling, right?

I thought it was too.
If anything, I think the OWS movement is the culmination of what many of us have felt in our hearts for a very, very, long time. The rat race that is modern life is mind numbing, especially when you come to the realization that it's all for someone else's gain. It turns life into such a materialistic endeavor that many end up asking "Is this really all there is? An endless cycle of work just to make others rich?"

So, here we are at critical mass. And now that we are, I don't see how we can go back.

Very astute observation.

Every detail about this was precontrived.
The imagery of a Lennin peaking out from behind the paper,
The wording
The stamp of approval at the bottom

They are delivering this as a talking point for the sheeple to take up and to lure in more unwitting sheeple.
It completely ignores the facts on the ground of ACORN having to buy homeless people to go out on the streets to intermix with these ultra rich commie revolutionaries who have mansions and secure nest eggs stashed away with nothing to worry about, proven by recent arrests.

Yet nothing you have said rebuts the fact that what he wrote is indeed how many people feel.

What exactly is your argument? That just because there are imposters in the movement, that the basis of the movement is flawed? Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water.

Abso-fricken-lutely !

Each morning when I read ATS I am astounded by the number of OWS hate and discontent threads,

As this individual has made crystal clear, Each of us are the 99%.
And,
Tomorrow our world could turn upside down as many of our fellow citizens lives have been, though no fault of their own.

I am going to take you back to the fall of 2008 when this money crisis began. The establishment and MSM with a full court press of distraction wanted to hang the blame on those citizens who had purchased homes they could not afford and the so-called sub-prime loans.

At that time 40 billion (just two weeks of the Iraq action cost) could have PURCHASED 100% of all homes in forcloser.

BUT,

They we asking for 700 billion… Why ?

Because it was NEVER about the sub-prime loans , it was always about
Wall Street and the Derivatives.

Still Is. even after an additional 1.6 trillion of OUR money.

This should be proof positive to everyone that this Nation is NOT Capitalistic, we are Corporatists, which is Fascist.

Capitalism is when your business fails… it fails.

Corporatism is when the “favored” Corporation fails the Government becomes their partner and bails them out of trouble.

Derivatives are trouble.

There is more money on the hook through derivative investments than is even in the world.

I, for one citizen am not fooled by the actions of our Government and its partners Goldman-Sachs, JP Morgan, AIG, Bank of America and Wells Fargo.
Just because these greedy bankers made bad choices, I for one, am unwilling to mortgage my grandchildren’s future to insure that these scumbags can delay their Day of Reckoning and allow their Grandchildren a silver spoon and mine no spoon at all.

Your masters from behind the curtain are sending you enlightenment, how thrilling it must be for you.


Speaking in cryptic riddles does nothing for your argument.

Perhaps if you weren't so eager to label everyone as "sheeple," and removed the mounds of overinflated ego you clearly possess, I'd pay attention to your belittling remarks about enlightenment.

I can personally relate to this story. My family is FINE. Our house is paid off, we have NO debt, good health insurance, a stable income and a hefty savings, all thanks to the fact that we are hard-working and frugal. My own personal situation is not what keeps me supporting the OWS movement, it's the simple fact that I can see what's going on and even if it NEVER affects me personally, my fellow Americans are suffering unjustly and they need my support.

Thanks for posting this!

So you are going to rally behind the likes of Soros and all the people who got rich off of your failed future, because they are the ones who funded and preplanned OWS.
The masters took your money, got you mad, now you will run to the streets on their behalf to usher in socialism and globalism to make them exponentially richer by controlling all of the worlds resources.
You are played like a puppet and don't even know it.
You have the answer in your own observations, they could have bought the debt at 10% but didn't. Rich people never do negative business, the endgame is worth much much more then a few trillion, they want to sit on top of globalism which is slated to control all of the worlds resources, and you are just a pawn in their game.
Capitalism is their only roadblock and seen as their enemy.

This is obviously a faked paper.

Can anyone of you prove this guys story>?
Why not, because it is not real?

It is more OWS propaganda being thrown around
trying to incite more hatred and class warfare
and the people are just eating it up..
