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..

Pops,

How DARE you.
How dare you say what you just did.
Even if it was 'faked' and the guy holding the paper isn't in that situation, a LOT of people ARE. I myself know many (even within my own FAMILY) who had their homes paid off for decades, were living grandly, within their means, had great Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance costing like 900/mth if not more, bills were always paid on time, excellent credit ratings - and lost pretty much everything due to the SHTF as it's been going.

I've also heard enough tales from acquaintences and others who have also lost all they had due to illness, unexpected layoffs, other things happening. Once you fall off, it's next to impossible to get back on. I don't care what you're falling off of - a great job, money saved in the bank, this that or the other. This is affecting more and more people daily. People's businesses get shut down, they lose, their employees lose.

I don't give a rats behind WHO wrote that paper.
I give a rats behind that it's the whole truth of the matter going on.

I'm SO happy you're living large and safe and secure in your own little personal bubble of 'life is great, I have all I need forever'. I really honestly PRAY that you will never have to lose everything to see how it is.

I'd not wish this on anyone EVER. It's that horrifying.

But I /do/ wish that insensitive folk would at LEAST learn some empathy. You know. Empathy? Showing concern for others? Caring? Understanding how hard it is to have a decent life and to lose it all and be screwed? Walking a mile in their shoes because, yes, 'there but for the grace of God/fate/karma/ chance go I.'

People are so 'me me me me me' lately and it's filthy. Filthy, stomach turning and disgusting.

Doesn't matter how your fellow man is long as you have.
I see.

I clearly see.

Don't even reply to this because your stand on the issues going on right now is just pitiful. I pity you. I plain out pity you. I feel SO sorry for you. And I just want to hug you, take you on a tour of how the real USA lives. Show you how hard it is to decide rent, food or medicine. Ever been in that situation for a long term of time, Pop? No?

Why not do what that guy did on his tv show once where he refused to touch his bank account with millions, took 500 dollars and his wife, one bag of stuff, had to rent a crap apt, find a min wage job and try to survive for a month. It really opened his eyes - especially when he or she got sick and the emergency room was 500 dollars just to walk in. Why not do that? Why not live like the poor do for one month. Just one month. WE do it every single day of every single year. Try to save up some money and bam. Something happens that drains you back to 20 dollars. Every single day, every single year.

Stop knocking those who lost all they have. Stop it.

Stop. It.

You know... I've been lurking around here, reading the OWS posts, trying to keep on top of news of this movement from as many sources as I can, and conversing with people to get their opinions on the whole thing. Throughout all of this, I've come to a single observation. Instead of this movement "unifying" people together, to move forward for a greater good, it has only splintered us further apart from one another.
We have the "class war" (re)ignited - the "rich" vs. the "poor". But those are not the only lines in the sand. We also have one "faction" - the "99%" - squabbling amongst each other as to whether this movement is legit or not.
I'm not saying, "hey, let's hold hands and sing kum-bay-yah around a campfire", but can you not see the utterly simple "divide and conquer" tactic being used?

As a side note, I find it mildly ironic that the remake of "The Thing" movie was released during the (so far) peak time of the OWS movement. A movie entirely based on "divide and conquer". Now if that isn't a slap in the face by "TPTB".

Prominent Silicon Valley businessman to divest Bank of America funds

By Tracy Seipel

Posted: 11/03/2011 04:11:35 PM PDT
Updated: 11/03/2011 08:33:28 PM PDT

A prominent member of Silicon Valley's exclusive "1 percent" club is pulling his money out of Bank of America and cutting all ties with the bank -- and hopes others will follow his lead.

Mike Fox Sr., a beer magnate and well-known philanthropist, is set to announce Friday that he is divesting his long-held personal Bank of America account, which contains several hundred thousand dollars, in an effort to promote social and economic justice.

Fox said Thursday that he has also asked his executive team to move a $4 million-plus line of credit held by M.E. Fox & Co. from Bank of America to another institution. Fox's firm is a 46-year-old wholesale distributor of beer, water, New Age beverages and Red Bull energy drink.

"I think the only way I can influence people is through my personal example," said Fox, 75, who called the amount he was divesting "rather small compared to the egregiousness" of Bank of America's slow response in modifying home mortgages.

(...)

Fox said Bank of America's recent decision to cancel its planned $5 monthly debit-card fee after weeks of customer outrage still wouldn't convince him to do business with Bank of America officials.

"I'd be polite with them, and I'd meet with them," he said. "But the decision has been made."

Beautifully said. This "FU I got mine" attitude is what breeds revolutions. Telling "eat cake" to people that have nothing left to lose may not be in your best interests, you know? Mess with the bull and all that. How some people can be so selfish, heartless and plain disgusting is beyond my understanding. People like this usually support wars and spew false morality any chance they get. Hypocrits. People like these are the final block I face towards accepting a total world awakening. How can those that belong in the dark ages still hold this mentality in this day and age? Be it product of lobotomized ideological choice or through shilling themselves as internet trolls for the 1%, their words are truly sickening.

I find it interesting that anyone who disagrees with the OP in this thread or any other thread is accused of being a FOX News watcher. I take it that this is supposed to be an insult. I got accused of it once in another thread. I had a good laugh over that. Just the fact they think I even watch the news was funny to me. It’s also pretty funny when you get accused of being a disinfo agent. I about lost it laughing so hard over that one lol. You’re either a Fox News lover or a disinfo agent on ATS.

“Hey, you don’t share our beliefs, so you must believe everything FOX News is telling you or a disinfo agent!”

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.



I was gonna snip some of that out, but I really wish people would read it again.

My work has dropped to a trickle. I used to do wood floors and tile showers for guys like you.

Or for your wives
.

I work by myself. Got a little truck.

Own my own tools. I always charge a fair price.

I don't care if lowes charges $4000, It would take me a week and a half.

I might charge $1500

I have plenty of references. Every one of them from 15 yrs worth of carpet, tile, wood, vct in schools.

I live within my means. The family gave me grandads old mobile home, which he bought new in 1974.

It was in decent shape, except the particle board floors had fallen through, so I repaired it, repainted. New cabinets(which were just the original face frames on new boxes-hand built of course) over a 9 yr period,
turned into a nice place. 770 sf. Enough for me, my wife, my daughter and my PS3..lol

A little at a time. Just like my tile jobs. I know each piece. It's mine until I die. I love my work.

Hey sheep, please wake up. America will fall if you allow Soros, Pelosi, Obama et al to start a marxist regime.

What Would Franklin Say?

You sold your Heritage for a song? A little security brought shame and destruction on your Liberty?

I really hope they turn tail and run.

I do not long for a fight against fellow Americans. Whether they be communist or marxist.

Or sheep.

The Constitution Will Stand.

I think you're missing the point, the ones being accused of watching fox news are the ones quoting from it or using information clearly obtained from their stories. Don't forget you're on an alternative forum so regardless of which MSM you quote you will get some heat for it. Fox news is just known to have a few more hacks than the rest, people don't really boast MSM ideas around here. Ever since the 24/7 media exploded in the early 90s they have used fear to promote their stories and it's important to remember that fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.

Edit: It's also important to note that the only network that didn't talk about the murdoc case was the one owned by murdoc, they weren't even allowed to talk about it even though it was one of the top stories at the time. If you're going to be a news outlet tell the news if you're going to be an entertainment hub then that's fine but they claim to be a "fair and balanced" (their slogan) news network.

The funny part is he's authored silly threads like this skunk works thread that end up in ATS "Skunk Works". Then he wants to talk about "obviously a fake paper" and "can't prove it" and yadayada. Bit hypocritical there...

Looking at his other post history, besides the ironic no proof conspiracies, he clearly has a personal agenda to troll and flame any OWS thread just like TinfoilTP. It's pretty sad really how lacking in compassion for their fellow man and self centered these seemingly brainwashed Rush Limbaugh style folks are. They throw out their little catch phrases like "communism" "socialism" "class warfare" yadayada at everything when they clearly don't really even understand the original, non propaganda, meanings of the words.

As the image says, they too are really just one string of bad luck or twist of fate from being poor and hungry or sick too, only when it happens to them will they finally understand.

To popsmayhem, TinfoilTP and the other people mocking ows in this thread and laughing at people's plight if you enjoy movies may I recommend watching Trading Places and It's A Wonderful Life? I'm sure you'll enjoy them, trust me

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.
edit on 3-11-2011 by GringoViejo because: (no reason given)


Lol where do you think the protests are happening? They are happening in many major cities in almost every state. Is Oakland the only other one you think is going on outside of Wallstreet because that's all you've heard about? Just a little FYI for you, just because you don't know about it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

Wow read and learn more then get back to me, pathetic.

I'd like to remind everyone that the tea party protests started when the bank bailouts began. So yes, they figured out what was coming but sooner. They were proactive rather than reactive. To me that is more impressive. And furthermore, they knew the solution to the problem was massive cuts to government programs. They were not as exciting and didn't take off the way the OWS because they don't know how to focus on emotions the way the Occupy Wall Street crowd does. Its the same reason a football game can draw 100,000 people to a stadium but the guy capable of solving real problems, Ron Paul, has never drawn more than about 15,000.

If Ron Paul would add in some story-telling and emotion like the one in the OP he would be far closer to that nomination.

There was a time where lower class people were not allowed to vote because it was assumed they would vote to take away all the money of the upper class. It would seem they are being proven exactly right. Democracy is a good system but maintaining the most basic moral values have to be core to the system.

Unbelievably, the masses have been deluded into thinking that if you get together with a big crowd and break the law or do something grossly immoral, its fine and dandy because its called "the government doing its job". Taxes isn't stealing even though stealing is taking without asking.... "Its just the government doing its taxation job". Killing other people is okay if they seem dangerous and that isn't murder... "its the government doing its assassination job". The problem with the 99% is that they allow simple words to throw out their entire moral code and commit evil. That said, I have confidence the 99% can learn using things like the internet to become civilized in the future.

People should stop focusing on words like "OSW" and "tea party" and start focusing on actions like using alternative currency, using credit unions, etc. Words are powerful but actions are vastly more powerful!

Being ruled by the 51% is proving to be only a little better than being ruled by the 1% for the exact reasons we were given hundreds of years ago. Hopefully people will realize that Democracy is a nearly brand new idea and it needs a whole lot of refining.

That's a cool story, but that just is not realistic


The time of "jetsons" style vehicles never came. I mean when i was 10 in 1983 i was walking home with by best friend and was talking about how the news was saying we would have cars that flew around by "2010" and we all would live in domes and it sounded really cool. And your idea is cool too. But it just is not going to happen why? Because the elite.

We have to "make things real" before things come to fruition. We were day dreamer dreaming our lives away... a today we act. And I have anticipated it for decades, its a buzz on sweet and low when people pitch me alternatives in these victorious days.

You don't see the similarities between the two pics? Story, font,body positioning, it's all there.


Totally different story... and theres only so many ways to hold a peice of paper in front of you for a webcam. Would you like him to stand on his head and hold the piece of paper right side up? Do jumping jacks with it tattooed onto his scarred torso? Really what is it you want? Font?! Did you just mention font? Do me a favor, look at the picture you posted. It is lower case characters and multi colored, very much unlike the black CAPS Locked text of the original post's picture. I am in a state of shock and awe at the amount, or lack of, of which you pay attention too before you speak.

It's low frequency so old folks will probably have difficulty with the audio. If you use earphones it may help, some people hear fine and some cant hear a thing. I am not one to do HD audio and dolby surround i just say my 2 cents and let it be.

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.


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.


LOL I wish you could of lived in Germany during Hitler's rule to see what true propaganda is.

Love the pretenders who act like they know it all. These are human beings speaking out against their government, unsupported except by those who feel they can gain from this. However this does not make these people socialist or commies, nor propagandists, merely people with a voice.

I guess when you hear things you don't like its called propaganda, but your belief of it does not make it reality.

While the tea party may have seen this problem before the OWS movement, these types of movements were springing up around the world at that time when the tea party came out.
Regardless, now people are fighting for the same things the tea party tried to stop.

No one is better then anyone and pitting the tea party against OWS is only asking for more problems in the streets and in the media.

Peaceful resolutions should be found, more reasons to stand together should be spoken. I fear we are all too angry and self-centred to do that, that's why as proud as I am of OWS, I am also afraid for them. For anyone who stands up and speaks aloud about the countries problems. Good luck to you all, try and remember we are in this together.
