Which exasperates the lack of Jobs issue here in the US.
That requires personal responsibility to acknowledge they are part of the problem. They can't have it both ways. On the one hand, tweet, text, Email
and chat away on all their Made in China products and not acknowledge that they are part of the problem and then turn right around and complain there
are no jobs available.
The way I see it:
If the country cannot foster/facilitate enough employment to account for all of its citizens, its a problem that needs to be fixed because from what I
expect a government should foster the progress of its citizens, all of them if possible. If an international corporation is part of the problem, so be
it. Basically committing treason by selling economic stability to the highest bidder is not acceptable in a nation that cares about its own future. I
care about this nations future, do you?
And you honestly think that the world just suddenly became that way recently? Yes, there is ugliness in the world. There are murders, wars,
hate crimes and rape and all other types of grotesque activities. It has been that way since the beginning of time.
I'm sorry but IBM, Boeing and Hughes Aircraft didn't create Human nature.
It can't stay that way forever, the sooner people start standing up and actively finding reasons behind these problems and purging them the better.
With fewer and fewer people having control over more and more things eventually the cycle will be only one person controlling everything, is that what
we want for our country and our world? Aren't those actually fascist and totalitarian forms of government? You would be hard pressed to deny that the
people representing you in our beloved country are honestly representing your interests.
I am nothing special, but I don't feel selfish with my right to exist and to have a say in my regulatory system.
Yes, we can dwell on the negative and equally not see the beauty and blessings as well.
It's your choice.
It's hard not to dwell on the negative when you dwell in it.
Well some of us simply refuse to ignore all the very vocal voices in the crowd advocating outright communism. [Whether some OWS supporters care
to acknowledge those voices or not] Which quite frankly if they get their way would prevent just about everything you are espousing.
I don't think very many American people, occupy or not, would allow us to turn into a communist or fascist country. That is not to say we might be
able to learn something beneficial from it though, I think there is probably something beneficial to learn from pretty much every form of government
or many of them at least. A form of government is supposed to be an attempt at creating a civil and progressive society so all of them must have some
kind of decent point to study and learn from.
The distribution of wealth in the country was a lot more moderate when we were fighting the Nazi's and USSR, does that make it any more communist? I
don't think principles of a free market in the US are going to disappear by any means, I don't think this is anything OWS advocates as an assembly or
otherwise. I would say that our free market is a bit perverted though.

I hardly think a visual of the Hammer and Sickle Russian communist flag marching right alongside other OWS is propaganda. They and the Neo Nazis are
part of the movement. Adbusters organized it, Tides funded it. Socialists made the demands. the Obama admin and Democrat Party support it.
That is just responsible reporting. It doesn't mean that some within the movement are not sincere souls who understand the manipulations of the
Illuminati and the bloodline families and the NWO etc, it just means that some people are misguided.
In America, if you want to identify yourself as a Neo-Nazi, you can do so. You cannot however do something like oh say... kill a bunch of jews.
Neo-Nazi's may not also part of the occupy movement, they are part of America and unfortunately we are responsible for living along side them
peacefully. Along with homosexuals, atheists and anything else someone doesn't like.
Just because you can single out someone in OWS for particular ideology doesn't mean OWS is going to try and turn America into the U S of Nazism, we
just wouldn't stand for something like that. I don't personally agree with every single person from OWS I've heard, but its no different than having
to live in the same country and even the same world with them. One way or another we are all just going to have get along, I guess.
OWS = Solidarity, democracy, many as one.
Corporate government = Fascism, eventually one as many.
It is the very essence of good and evil, either we become a world under the control of one person or all people equally cooperate. Biologically, we
are hard wired to dominate all around us for survival, from a human being right down to microbial life. This is a struggle against survival of the
fittest and, yes SLAYER, human nature.
