    The OWS supporters have esentially created a list of demands to redistribute wealth. Some highlights include less goverment spending while expanding the EPA, have a Jobs Agency, Bigger Obamacare, Forgive Illegal Aliens and train them.

    What an arrogant bunch of Marxists*.



    * Marx·ism (märkszm) n.
    The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society's allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society. ​

    I agreed with one thing. Term limits. But I think those term limits should be shorter.

    I'll be honest, I tried reading it, but it was making my teeth itch and I felt as if I needed a shower.

    One thing I did notice is there is a LOT of reference to the word IMMEDIATE. :eek:

    How, exactly, does one go about doing dozens of unbelievably complex things immediately and follow them through to completion without effing things up 6 ways from sidways?

    You want to IMMEDIATELY stop this, start that, create this program, end that program and, oh yeah, recall all foreign serving troops as you see fit during our little lunch break here.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot over?!?! Who the hell is running this operation the f**king Keeble Elves?!

    I feel I have lost intelligence trying read and decypher that manifesto.

    i dont need to decipher that insanity to know that where these lunatics will take things if they have what they want. it will end up with concentration camps, work gulags where innocent children are worked until they die, and trenches full of bodies covered in lime. its where every socialistic/marxist/communist society goes in the end.

    dont believe it try cracking open a history book

    these human refuse are evil to the core and dont deserve anything but ridicule an scorn

    Thumbs Up! Thanks for the shout out, glad I could help but I seriously have issue with anyone in private, or public, sector trying to ramrod or "immediately" do anything. :mad:

    Large operations take time. National level changes CAN NOT happen overnight, regardless of your passion or level of interest.

    OK, this guy is even more of a moron! The wife and I went downtown today to do the early voting deal, as there's no way I'll be home on Election Day. I made a special point to drive by Courthouse Square where the Dayton "occupy" crowd has their tents set up. Mainly, simply to laugh at them. If the idiots really want to play summer camp when it's 33 degrees out at night, who am I to discourage them.

    At least locally, they're more just an annoyance rather than anything to take seriously, there were maybe 10 people out there with signs, and a few tents set up. The majority of them around here have jobs, so they "demonstrate" on their lunch hours and on weekends. Talk about commitment!

    It was hilarious last weekend, we were down in SC for our grandson's birthday, and my son-in-laws mother was there, and we were discussing this. I have long hair, and she (well, she's "different") asked my opinion of it, and if I was participating. I'm guessing she thought, long hair, came of age in the 60's, that I'd be a part of this mess. When I told her I thought they were just filthy idiots wanting a handout, the conversation came to an abrupt halt, and she left the room. I'm kinda thinking she was maybe a little more of a hippie than I was back then. Back then, I had a buzz cut, carrying a rifle in a strange land, getting shot at by short oriental looking gentlemen.

    My argument to Uber liberals is how many more affluent liberals you think use a CPA or other tax guy then say "Oh, and maker sure you pay the max tax I can." I'm very sure this is a low to next to nil figure. If it's really doing what's right then I would think that all the uber libs would not need even the 1040A or at the least offer to pay a little extra to help out the huddles masses. My tax guy tells me he gets a ton of the hard core Obamaphile types and they are really happy when a new deduction is found for them.:rolleyes:

    Tried reading their ideals, but as soon as I saw they quoted Jefferson, and then Mussolini? I stopped. Mussolini? Really?

    Considering all things

    I thought that for the most part it was well thought out. And since most people complaints about the occupy crowd is no one has goals, well that fixs that problem. But I too also think that a few of their items are faulty. And what do you expect of bunchbof non political people, you think they should IMMEDIATLEY understand how the system works on how immediately things can get done at large scale events.

    I said the same thing Ben. I guess we may here some quotes from Stalin and a few others before it's over.


    Less, the problem is if you ask those in the OWS crowd what's their goal you get a bunch of different answers. Most don't know about this declaration. If you are going to have a movement you must immediately set and know your goals. Immediately.

    I think the stem of the problem is the professors that have brainwashed them, they need a good curb stomping if you ask me. And as for the whiny crybabies I'd say distribute some wealth their way for plane tickets to countries suited to their demands so they can see just how great the system works.

    I have to agree with you on this one.

    It's typical political BS. Come up with a bold new plan,

    with NO WAY to implement it...
