What exactly are you talking about? Occupy uses MSM footage? Rarely. Almost all of the footage of police brutality was caught by fellow protesters.


www.youtube.com...

You never answered my previous post. please define "economic equality"


I see an MSM outlet using protesters recordings there. Not the other way around.
Economic Equality


But you tell us in your own words, what is economic equality dont put up a link to economic INEQUALITY

I'm not going to do your research for you but here's a pointer. Look beyond FOX and right-wing bloggers.

You could look up one of my many threads but okay I'll do it for you. And do try to realize that by protesting economic inequality you are in essence asking for economic equality.

That is a link to Economic INEQUALITY.

When you say things like Economic Equality...it is starting to sound like socialism...and that is something I haven't heard you advocate for in the past.

Are you now on board with socialism???

It does get a bit flustering to argue 3 on 1....I guess economic justice would be a better way to put it.

Yet you still can't define economic equality...
Posting (again) about economic INEQUALITY is not the same thing. If i was protesting racism and you were to ask me what racism is I would not tell you stupid things like "A white man helping a black man"is not being racist". It shows a lack of understanding because
1 it does not actually define racism
2. The opposite a white man hurting a black man is not necessarily racist.

So i ask again...
Please define economic equality in your own words.
or
Economic Justice as you are now calling it.

Economic justice to me would be when people aren't kicked out of their homes illegally while the bankers that actually broke the law don't even lose their jobs let alone stand trial. Economic justice would be that while the government starts demanding that everyone sacrifice in these tough economic times that corporations that make billion dollar profits in the US alone, don't get million dollar tax REBATES, all the while crying that it costs too much money to operate inside the US so they ship the jobs that used to put food on the table of americans overseas at slave wages. I could go on...

when you don't pay for something it is not yours. Therefore they were not kicked out of their homes illegally.



Economic justice would be that while the government starts demanding that everyone sacrifice in these tough economic times that corporations that make billion dollar profits in the US alone, don't get million dollar tax REBATES, all the while crying that it costs too much money to operate inside the US so they ship the jobs that used to put food on the table of americans overseas at slave wages.


Operating overseas is a method used to avoid taxation, there is nothing wrong with that. Should we taxx foreign companies because they have money? And yes it does cost a lot to operate inside the US because so many people cling to this idea that you should be punished (through tax) for production.
How often would you show up to work if the more you worked the less you got paid and the people that did not show up at all still got a check mailed to them?
That is not "equality" or "justice" that sounds like punish the rich for being successful and reward people that do not pay their bills.

The video leaves out some key pieces of information. Namely, why is he still making payments on a home that was bought in 1968? Did he take out an equity loan? And what did he take that loan out for? And what terms of the loan did he agree to?

It does suck when people lose their homes...but when they have caused the situation themselves by making bad decisions...are we supposed to be mad at the banks for that?

And that just goes to show how much you argue about things you know nothing about. It is called illegal foreclosure for a reason....because it is illegal. And no I won't define it for you, google is your friend.

I could go on...


Define being kicked out "illegally"??? I know there have been some instances where the bank moved on the foreclosure too soon, before all the paperwork was in hand....but that doesn't mean that the person deserves to keep their home. It just means that the bank must get it's paper work in order before it forecloses.

The tax thing is difficult due to corporations now being global. What is your solution to that issue? Corporations are technically legally keeping most of their profits overseas to avoid the high taxation rate here in the US. And the side effect of that is that they post huge loses in the US, which gets them a rebate. The US doesn't have the right or legal option to tax money made in a different country...that is just illegal. So what is your solution?

You can't force companies to keep jobs here...you can only offer them incentives to do so at this point. For jobs to come back, you are going to have to offer tax breaks to corporations for bring jobs back...and for some reason I don't think OWS would like that. So what would be your solution for this issue?

Can you point out all these fallacies that his arguments are filled with?

I'm not saying there aren't...but since you made an accusation, I would like to see you back them up.



LOL ok you have shown your ignorance... i rest my case


BTW...you are guilty of an ad-hom fallacy in this post.
