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 found that very interesting too. Mainly because I do the same thing when I'm promoting my own activism. Example. I've spent the past month advertising Bank Transfer Day. On the bottom of all of my letters and flyers concerning the matter I add a website or list of websites that someone may visit if they want to join and/or gain more information on the matter. It's common place. This man's letter is a form of protest, and the web address points towards his area of support. Nothing more.

Just amazing how one minute a few individuals doesn't make up the supposed '99%', but the next minute a picture of a guy's manifesto does. Just amazing!

Oh really? OWS doesn't even get the message.

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..

false information.


The fact that what is written on that paper is really happening to real people should be all you care about not whether it was written by someone to make a point and not by an actual professor. I don't understand how you can just pretend the problem doesn't exist. Even if you don't agree with the occupy movement you are hopelessly lost if you can't recognize that there is a real problem.

It does matter, I prefer honesty when someone is trying to recruit me for a cause. Maybe you don't, that's your choice.

Who is pretending that our country doesn't have problems?

Even if you don't agree with the occupy movement you are hopelessly lost if you can't recognize that there is a real problem.

Then OWS is hopelessly lost, by your definition, because they haven't identified the source of the problem. If they had, these protests would be in the nation's and state capitals.

Big fan of Adam Sandler movies, right?

Everything is one big joke. Belittle the small person. Snicker at the handicapped. Laugh at the bag lady falling, even though she’s cracked her tailbone on the ice.

It was funny!

I wasn't the only one laughing.

Until it happens to you.

Here's a word: humility.

Those of you that don't know it might want to look it up.

That's from I am the 53%. You or where you got it from should link to it.

It's been going for a while. It's the people who pay taxes making the statement they are not with the 1% who claim to be the 99%.

Here is the link to the source.

This is the movement for the people who do all the work and create the jobs, wealth and products and services we all use. Not for the give me, give me entitlement crowd who do nothing but demand more candy. Not for the Anarchists and the Marxists who want to take us over and enslave us and steal the fruits of our labor.

I brought in $500,000 last year as an SP and employ 6 people, all supporting their own households. After taxes and expenses my Wife and I took home only $70,000 last year in a city where you must earn $80,000+ to live a Middle Class lifestyle. I'm one of the Obama Victims. I am one of the 53% and my Wife and I put in a combined 100+ hours a week doing actual work so I can pay Obama and his shills. I pay my own medical, dental and retirement and have never asked for or received a dime of aid from the government. For that the insane Progressives hate me. They don't own me and cannot control me. My income has dropped by a third since Obama.

Next time they call me rich, remember they take so much from me I live below the Middle Class level and they give my money to worthless losers who run around in masks demanding more handouts out of my pocket. If Obama gets his way I will lay off the employees who's families I support and accept a position with one of the companies who has made me an offer. If Obama gets his way unemployment will go so high you ain't seen nothin yet folks.

My customers are nearly all businesses. I'm talking to the owners all day every day. I know the truth. Either the Marxists loose or we all loose everything. They are not after the rich. They and Obama want to destroy the Middle Class that does all the real heavy lifting. When we are all poor we will be easy to control as they do away with our freedom and form their slave state. They are so arrogant they don't even hide who they are anymore. Why, because they know they can count on the illiterate and poor that they buy with money they steal from others. We know that OWS is in fact the reelect Obama Movement in disguise. It will fool the people they need to fool though.

How anyone can be on ATS and not know the truth is beyond me. The internet is full of those they have indoctrinated who are hoping to be one of their lapdogs if they take over.

The 53% who do everything do not need to take over parks and bait the police so they can get their video on YouTube. We are the majority and everyone else depends on us for everything. The Alinsky Progressives who are taking over hate us. We are absolute proof of their real motives, which includes total control and a life as slaves to them. They must make us all poor before they can take over. People need to wake the hell up. They control both Parties now and the schools. Nobody will like what they intend to do, but then it will be too late.

Our only chance is at the ballot box and the only people who matter are those who show up in droves to vote against them. Everyone else is just talk.

In your haste to argue against everything you don't allow yourself to learn anything. Your ignorance shines bright.

Like I said, if these hopelessly lost (again, your definition) protesters had the wisdom to identify the actual problem, they would be at state capitals and the nation's capital. OWS are the ones who need educated, not I.

The cloistered life of academicians would be acceptable, even admirable if it weren't for the fact that so many of these smug self congratulatory college professors not only use their free time to engage in political activism all too often pushing Marxist's agenda, they indoctrinate their students with this ideology. This particularly smug self congratulatory college professor speaks in such sweeping generalizations without even a hint of willingness to accept responsibility for his own actions and the far reaching consequences of them.

In 2009 CNN Money did a feature on the top 50 jobs in America, listing the college professor as no 3! Interestingly, John William Pope Center for Higher Education recently featured an op/ed piece speaking to the declining teaching load of college professor's. College professors today are teaching less, while getting paid more, than they were well over a decade ago. In fairness, this op/ed piece does acknowledge that the two studies cited come with discrepancies, as in one year both "for-credit" and "not for-credit" classes were counted, and other years only "for-credit" classes counted, but even with these discrepancies, that professors are teaching less classes per semester is clear, and the discrepancy suggests that the decline may be worse than the studies suggest.

Far worse than this, however, is that smug self congratulatory professor's belief that his students are having "their dreams stolen from them". It is fairly clear at this point that the entire public, and to a large degree private educational institutions, have been designed to prepare young people for a corporate world. While Marxist dogma no doubt gets high praise from many left leaning professors, and most professors are left leaning, it is undoubtedly corporatism that is the paradigm by which professors "prepare" their students for.

Is corporatism and a place in it the dreams that are being stolen from this college professor's students in his dreams? Is corporatism the American Dream? Surely this was not always the American Dream, to go to school (usually by taking out an enormous loan) work hard for low to pay (while paying off that enormous loan) so that one can rise up the corporate ladder so that they can pay off their enormous school loans and exchange that debt for the enormous debt of a home, and car. Is this the American Dream? To work for the man for the privilege of living a life spent in constant debt, desperately fearful of losing this job and loosing everything that debt has afforded?

There was a time when the American Dream was not to work for the man, but be the man, and "Robber Barons" were known as "Captains of Industry" and Hercules "exploits" were as commonly known as his "labors". Indeed, the "twelve labors of Hercules" were still Hercules exploiting situations in order to come out victorious, thus, the twelve labors were a subset of Hercules exploits. But today, exploit is pejorative we use to describe "Robber Barons" and "Fat Cat Businessmen" and myths are those things we commonly call lies. How did this dramatic change in social and cultural consciousness happen? College professors must accept responsibility for this, at the very least, to some degree.

This college professor not only refuses to accept any responsibility for his actions in today's woefully precarious economy and cultural malaise, he expects us all to believe that everyone he knows who has suffered for this cultural malaise have done so "through no fault of their own". In terms of actually solving problems, blame is always irrelevant, and one would hope that academicians understand this not only on an intellectual level, but on a basic fundamental level. Yet, surely this smug self congratulatory college professor seems to either willfully ignore this point, or just doesn't get it.

The corruption and unbelievably unethical practices of most colleges these days is beyond shameful and matches some of the most heinous actions of corporate malfeasance, and why not? Colleges and universities across the nation have long been in collusion with the corporatist agenda, and have sold their own souls to deliver the devil the souls of others so they can "own (their) house free and clear, have decent health care, decent health...and a wonderful life"

Dude, you've got to be the biggest troll on this website. You're giving kro a run for his money

 

On topic, I remember reading through page after page of those things, and it's just a bunch of Americans who are concerned about the state of this country and the way the future is shaping up to be, usually telling their own story and explaining why they're worried. They're just ordinary people who are fed up, and aren't going to put up with our corrupt government anymore.

If you want to sit back, get pissed on by some bankers, and vote in another puppet while you sit in front of a computer badmouthing thousands of people who you've never met, calling them commies, socialists, anarchists, hippies, or whatever other terms Fox News has shoved down your throat, that's your problem. We're going to try to fix this country, enjoy insulting people behind a computer screen who are looking out for the well being of the vast majority of Americans.

In the future, I'm sure society will look back and thank you. You keyboard warrior patriots will be forever remembered as the saviors of our country. Your thoughtful, wise, inquisitive insults will be paralleled with the modern day quotes of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.

Which is where these protests should be focused towards, Government.

So you're saying that the only way to help the country is to support OWS?


In the future, I'm sure society will look back and thank you. You keyboard warrior patriots will be forever remembered as the saviors of our country. Your thoughtful, wise, inquisitive insults will be paralleled with the modern day quotes of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.

And the protesters will be remembered as glorified homeless people, who shat in parks, raped their constituents, and managed to deter customers from small local business'.

Well Pops, since we're just throwing out our opinions without any back, my opinion is that you should eat a bag of (snip). This is the second thread in two days that I've seen you try to derail with pointless, ignorant, cynical rhetoric. Whether the guy behind the paper is the person who wrote it or not, someone did. Bottom line. It's very likely that there is a college professor out there that relates to what these people are doing, and to be quite honest, I'm not a huge fan of OWS as a current college student. But it's people like you and tinfoil that dink the place up and avoid the actual purpose of the thread. That being the simple fact that whether they are there as a broke (snip) college student, or someone who is 40 years of age, they all have their own reason to protest. While I am not participating in an OCCUPY movement, I do not agree with the corporatizing of America. Fight on Friends. People like you two are the reason these people protest even more.. then again, maybe your trolling has a purpose.. hmmm
