I thought Obama was a socialist? No? Now it's the very citizens protesting him and his government that are the socialists? This is getting really confusing with all the name calling and labeling. In the words of Rodney King (who incidently was beaten by true fascists), "Can't we all just get along"? You just don't get PTSD by going to war fighting for Multi-national corporations,

Good thread. Its been obvious for a number of years that the US is spiraling further and further into fascism, and at this point, is unlikely to be stopped via any conventional means.

Just as Rome used to be a Republic and then turned into a bloated, glutenous empire that could only sustain itself through conquest, so to has America. But I doubt America will last any where near as long as the Roman empire did... America is already swirling the drain, and very soon (if not already), will only be America in name and face, hiding a hollow, vacuous core where once at least the ideals of liberty, freedom, justice, and prosperity, dwelt, but dwell no longer.

Ron Paul is the last hope, IMO... but Im pretty sure that the "land of the free" (lol) is going to collectively say "No thanks, Ron! I wanna see whats down that drain! LETS GO ROMNEY/OBAMA!"

Oh well.

Well said, and in need of being seen again/bumped. It's a curious thing, I find myself nearly always agreeing in part or in totality with this Author, and the funny thing is, I only later take the time to look at the author and avitar, and a ("Ahh that's Him/Her again' I should'a known) moment arrives, and I smile thinking there is one who is still the voice of reason left here.
and the poster.... Caticus Maximus......... hope I spelled that correctly from memory.

Indeed. In the EXACT same way that many liberals have a knee-jerk response against anything 'tea party' related, no matter the obvious common ground actually presented, the social-conservatives lead around the nose by the likes of FOX and Breitbart.com form pre-determined opinions about "Occupy" without ever taking the time to make an actual, informed decision.


OWS is backed by the government and the establishment.


How did the media openly support OWS? Maybe MSNBC? That might be it.

All the MSM (minus fox) has shown open support for OWS. Here are some examples:

ABC News:
newsbusters.org...
newsbusters.org...
newsbusters.org...

CBS News:
newsbusters.org...
newsbusters.org...
m.newsbusters.org...

NBC:
newsbusters.org...

CNN:
newsbusters.org...

Now how did these same networks treat the tea party?

I do closely associate the Occupy movement with the new "hipster" movement. Yeah there are some people there that have lost jobs, money and want to get it back and actually have a reason to protest. But the vast majority of these people are young, over privledged, rich kids, with too much time on there hands. I live in Boston I've been to the protests, I live with these people, so before you go an say, "no they aren't!", I'll tell you from my first person perspective... yes they are.

You are right, but any movement that alludes to non-conformity will attract young impressionable kids from all walks of life. Among those with serious gripes, there are plenty who think it is 'cool to camp'! Does this detract from the Occupy message? I don't think so, but that message needs serious work for those (including myself) to really back the movement's call to arms, so to speak. The truth is, like many, I am so interwoven in the capitalist fabric that viable alternatives are still just a dream. It is very easy for some here to say life is better off the grid, but even getting to that point is one hell of a struggle. I work, sleep and work and in the few hours I have to myself I try to educate myself about the world and learn new skills. However, free (or personal expansion time if you like) is becoming a rare commodity. Work travels home with me and enough is never good enough. I do wonder if things might be more interesting if we stopped applying financial band-aids, let the system fold and then collectively battle our way to a different kind of life.

Therein is your problem OP.

You're reading the wrong books. Everybody makes that mistake at some point.

So I can't blame you. I've done the same thing.

Are you internet savvy? Start here:
www.history.com...

Now back to the Occupy Movement...

The Occupy Movement will fizzle once those people actually find jobs or do the work necessary to find something better than they have. In my view, it's just a lot of complaining without real results. It's easy to complain when you don't do what you need to do and you don't understand how the bad things happened. These people, a lot of them, just don't understand what they're doing wrong. They expect everybody else to bail them out of their own mess. It's comedy if it wasn't tragic.

Part of the problem is some people are so accommodating. In the past, people who lost work or were lazy got to experience the cold night wind an the frightening prospect of being robbed in the dark. These days, everybody is looked after and fed and given shelter no matter whether they're making good choices or bad. And so what happens is all of these people who don't get it are not feeling the pain so they're not learning any lessons. This is not complicated. A caveman would understand.

Just let em go for a while without food and shelter and so on. They'll be better off in the long run. But I know this won't do any good. People will still dumbly 'help' others without helping them. But let me tell you, when their pockets are empty then they won't be albe to dumbly 'help' others.

We're too soft. This is precisely why we're in debt. We could really benefit if we could channel our grandfather/grandmother generation or bring them back. They could teach this generation.

If they were here, there'd be no more million dollar toilets, nor free money. They knew how to live without. They knew how to live on their own too. This is because life was harder. They worked every day and they'd sometimes do this for weeks without any breaks. Most importantly, they didn't need million dollar toilets. They didn't need tv's or computers. They would scream if they saw our world.

And they were healthier. The reason they didn't live as long, on average, is because they didn't have modern hospitals to save them after serious injuries or diseases. But they were, physically, healthier. The air and water was also cleaner, if you didn't live near a coal burning plant. They worked more too because the machines weren't as good. They ate more naturally. And no frankenfood! Additionally, people who made it to adulthood tended to be stronger than they're now. This is because they didn't have technology to keep weaker members alive and they had to look out for themselves more. This ensured that lazy members of society would die off or would be forced into working again.

And their famlies were stronger than modern families. That's the biggest factor.

...Our grandfathers and our grandmothers

But, alas, we can't bring them back. We'll have to learn all those lessons again. And we'll have to do it in the face of a population that doesn't want to change or see the truth in front of them.

And every word of the speech is true too.

Is it? I guess it depends on who you are - and where you're standing

I think the video you posted proves the OP's point


It's funny in its own way. But sad too.

I'm not sure how you meant this - but I have to agree


Ultimately, it's more important to get this message out there even under this guise.

Mike Kaminski does this sort of thing for a living. He's an entertainer. Doesn't mean he isn't good at what he does - I thought this was brilliant myself. Not because I agree with the message. The original movie with Scott is a masterpiece and this is a brilliant parody. I call it a parody because it's featured at parodycentral.net. :-)

I have no way of knowing whether or not the sentiments expressed in this fictional speech are his own - or if it's only art. I looked for an interview - I couldn't find anything

The interesting part is how many people picked up on his mock-Patton speech and used it to suit their own needs. People love it. Almost as much as they loved the real thing:

Patton's Speech to the Third Army was a speech given by General George S. Patton to troops of the U.S. Third Army on June 5, 1944, the day before D-day. Patton delivered variations of the speech on several different occasions to his troops, although the June 5 date is the most well known. A hard copy of the speech exists. It has since become immortalized in George C. Scott's rendition in the movie Patton, where he delivers it in front of a large American flag.
en.wikipedia.org...


Now, I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.

Men, all this stuff you've heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle.
www.americanrhetoric.com...

The real Patton was a man larger than life - a legend. He was born to war apparently

"Magnificent! Compared to war all other forms of human endeavor shrink to insignificance.

God help me, I do love it so!"
- General George Patton Jr
www.military-quotes.com...
There are a great many men and women in the real world who understand the occasional inevitability of war, see the necessity of war when the threat is obvious and real, and who accept their responsibility in the making of war when they have no other choice. But these same men and women don't see the need to romanticize it or glorify it. They don't love it

So, back to the OP...

Many soldiers are pacifists first and then soldiers out of necessity

Then there are those that have no good use for pacifism - or pacifists

Jingoism

A way to lure, coerce, ostracize and condemn - all with a few well chosen words

Do you forget the fact that Obama, Democrats and liberals in power have spoken in favor of the Occupy movement?... Some of them even marched with the Occupy movement... the Occupy movement in general were not protesting Obama... The movement in general, not everybody who was there, were protesting against Capitalism, and not just against "multi-national corporations"... but against ayone who dared want "private property/Capitalism"...

I gave several videos of what the movement in general say they want. in the thread i gave a link to I gave even more evidence, including directly from one of the pamphlets used to gather people for the movement's march.

Also, the fact that the leaders/groups that make up the Occupy movement chose socialist/communist logos for their own logo, clearly is proof that the movement in general is socialist/communist...

What did you give to refute the facts I presented?... NOTHING...

That video you gave is from the Tea Party, not from the Occupy movement. I gave several videos from the Occupy movement, including people who were part of the organization of this movement, and their protests. The mayority of the Occupy movement are socialists and even communists, while some are anarchists.

You see, many people who like myself, and that man in the video, who hate socialism/communism with a passion, do so because we actually lived in a socialist/communist dictatorship, and we know what socialism/communism is really all about.

You have no idea what it feels to watch how your 11 and 12 year old sisters are dragged out of your house to do "Community Service" which in reality in socialist/communist dictatorships it is hard labor.

You don't know what it feels to watch your sisters cry, begging for your parents not to let them go to do "Community Service/Hard Labor" for the socialist/communist government.

Not too long ago President Obama, and Democrats signed into law a system similar to what you find in socialist/communist dictatorships, in which they demand for children in secondary, and they want to make even children in primary school work for free for the government without giving their parents a say on whether or not they should be doing this.

I get angry, and more so towards socialists who live the good life and are too ignorant to understand what socialist/communism really is, because I would rather die, than find myself living under another socialist/communist dictatorship.

I hate violence, and I believe that violence should only be used when your life, or the life of a loved one is at risk, and our lives will be at risk under a fascist/socialist government like the United States of America is being turned into. But if it comes to it, and if another civil war occurs to try to stop socialism/communism taking control of this nation, i will fight and would rather die than see socialism/communism win over this Republic of the United States.

FREDOM IS NOT FREE



It is difficult to imagine the free world united in such a way
The entire world locked in a battle of good vs. evil
It makes "Lord of the Rings" sound like a flea circus


Quotes regarding D-Day, the Battle of Normandy.
By Dwight D. Eisenhower
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.
Addressing the men before the invasion of Normandy
The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune

The landings were conducted in two phases: an airborne assault landing of 24,000 British, American, Canadian and Free French airborne troops shortly after midnight, and an amphibious landing[4] of Allied infantry and armoured divisions on the coast of France starting at 6:30 am. There were also decoy operations under the codenames Operation Glimmer and Operation Taxable to distract the German forces from the real landing areas.

Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces was General Dwight Eisenhower while overall command of ground forces (21st Army Group) was given to General Bernard Montgomery. The operation, planned by a team under Lieutenant-General Frederick Morgan, was the largest amphibious invasion in world history and was executed by land, sea, and air elements under direct British command with over 160,000[6] troops landing on 6 June 1944, 73,000 American troops, 61,715 British and 21,400 Canadian[7]. 195,700[8] Allied naval and merchant navy personnel in over 5,000[6] ships were involved. The invasion required the transport of soldiers and material from the United Kingdom by troop-laden aircraft and ships, the assault landings, air support, naval interdiction of the English Channel and naval fire-support. The landings took place along a 50-mile (80 km) stretch of the Normandy coast divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword.

The invasion fleet was drawn from eight different navies, comprising 6,939 vessels: 1,213 warships, 4,126 transport vessels (landing ships and landing craft), and 736 ancillary craft and 864 merchant vessels. Out of the 2,468 major landing vessels in the two task forces deployed on 6 June 1944 only 346 were American. Of the 23 cruisers covering the landings 17 were Royal Navy. In fact of the 16 warships covering the American Western beaches (Utah and Omaha) 50% were British and Allied ships. There were 195,700 naval personnel involved; 112,824 (58%) were British (Royal Navy), 52,889 (30%) US and 4,988 Allied countries

Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Utah Beach

There is no official casualty figure for D-Day. It is estimated that more than 425,000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded, or went missing during the battle. That figure includes more than 209,000 Allied casualties. In addition to roughly 200,000 German troops killed or wounded, the Allies also captured 200,000 soldiers. Captured Germans were sent to American prisoner-of-war camps at the rate of 30,000 per month, from D-Day until Christmas 1944. Between 15,000 and 20,000 French civilians were killed during the battle.

In the end, the invasion of Normandy succeeded in its objective by sheer force of numbers. By July 1944, some one million Allied troops, mostly American, British, and Canadian, were entrenched in Normandy. During the great invasion, the Allies assembled nearly three million men and stored 16 million tons of arms, munitions, and supplies in Britain

The occupation of Normandy was crucial for the Western Allies to bring the war to the western border of Germany. If the Normandy invasion had not occurred, there could conceivably have been a complete possession of northern and western Europe by Soviet forces

I know he was at a tea party rally. I don’t think they would want him rallying at a socialist or a communist event like occupy.
That American born in another country has more patriotism then the entire occupy movement. It’s good to know that some people still understand what freedom is and how important it is to protect it. I don’t know how these people get their minds so twisted that they are willing to sell out their country and their fellow citizens for the debt on their student loans.
Let freedom ring!
