It has ta be white, ST, ’cause dem po’ black folk ain’t smart ’nuff ta figure things out fo’ demselves.
What a bunch of dismissive, elitist, supposed egghead airheads! Plus, I’d lay better than even money they think such protests (or even any protests) would be allowed under the despotic dictatorship they so eagerly seek.
They hate big business, but when they look for work they can only hope there will be a business out there willing to hire them. They hate the banks but it was the Democrats like Barney Fag who and Chris Dodd who pushed the banks into giving out those loans to folks who could never pay them back.
What we see is what you get when our institutions are run by socialist. Brainwashing at its finest.
No liberal I know wants a dictatorship. What we want is accountability both in government and in corporations – both of which work hard to keep us down while they make a profit. I think even the Tea Party could be in agreement on some of these protests. After all Wall St and the Banks got a bailout [from Bush btw] and now they want more from us.
Your argument is incoherent. And no reason to use that term when referring to Barney Frank.
…I am old enough to have seen this nonsense before.
These people are desperate for a tyrant – and few of them realize it.
Trust fund brats with too much time on their hands. Why not put these college dropouts in all of those “shovel ready” jobs that lying Zerobama promised?
@foxmuldar & MDL – The remark of calling Barney Frank a fag was demeaning. Rather try to be honest and truthful – the correct term is sodomite, which in most circles of polite society is considered perverse and sometimes criminal.
No liberal I know wants a dictatorship. What we want is accountability
What you mean is that few of them will admit they want the state to have absolute power over everyone. But a few of your fellow liberals have blurted out the truth in unguarded moments. NYT columnist Thomas Friedman has reflected on how nice it would be to be more like communist China here where they could simply rule by decree. Obama’s Director of OMB writes in the New Republic that we need less democracy and more rule by fiat. And I guess you missed ST’s piece here about how the liberal Democrat governor of NC wishes we could do away with those inconvenient elections.
Face the facts: your liberal friends love power over people more than anything else. Try this simple test: tell me the last time you liberals actually tried to pass any legislation that got the government OUT of trying to dictate to us what we can do, say, or even eat.
Oh, and while you’re at it – if you libs like accountability so much, why aren’t you demanding full disclosure on Fast and Furious or the Solyndra payouts, or questioning why the Obama administration tried to get General Shelton to lie under oath regarding the Lightsquared scandal?
Hell, you might even start by demanding that Obama release the medical records and college transcripts he’s spent millions of dollars to hide. Some accountability.
Hey GWR, I would be fine with a dictatorship, so long as I’m the dictator. I figure it will take me about ten years to dismantle most of the mess already in place, add a couple of amendments to keep it from happening again, and then I retire with a big fat pension, a pardon and a gag order. No lobbying, no books, no interviews or speaking engagements. Ten and out.
Democracy as mayhem? Just go out and protests, whatever? I think these young folk are trying to recreate a protest movement that has Moved On…they are just the acid flashback kids of 60′s parents.
@MDL: There are some conservatives out here who despised GW for the socialist lite he is, but voted for him as the (not much) lesser of two huge evils. He was as evil as his daddy and not much less than Algore or Frenchy.
As far as protesting the government’s overreaching power, where do you get that? From what I know (from both having been part of “the movement” and from extensive reading since and paying attention), the assumption of liberals is that they will be part of the power structure when government runs everything, and so they will be OK because everyone that makes decisions will be on the same page. How foolish, childish and arrogant is that?
The nature of man is to abuse power and justify that abuse. Liberals justify it by assuming they know more than the person being controlled, but how can that be when their own lives are such a mess and they don’t have a clue about anything important to themselves, let alone the other person? Then they multiply that by millions!
Give me a break!
Yes, GWR… you are on target! What is especially interesting is that they are protesting “something” most cannot articulate–especially Susan Sarandon & Dr. Piven [loved their incoherent messages on camera!]–and then Van Jones screams they are going to TAKE BACK the American Dream. The American Dream is something created by capitalism.. and no Marxist/socialist state can “take it back.” BTW, they can’t compare to the Tea Party; the Tea Party has had hundreds of protests/demonstrations with NO arrests. NY has already had 700 arrests. These liberals don’t really know what they want.
Had a good laugh last night listening to a BBC reporter walking around these Wall Street protesters asking them why they were protesting. None of them could give him a coherent answer. When he tried to press each one of them on the fact that no one there he interviewed could give him an answer to what their purpose was for protesting some of them started getting angry. But more telling was when he started probing them for their background (job, political views, etc). Most of them he interviewed were a various assortment of anarchists, socialists, other “redistribute the wealth” types, and generally people with enough free time and money on their hands to fly to NYC from across the country to spend weeks doing this, ie, rich kids.
I wish I could contact one young girl in particular he interviewed so I could ask if she could redistribute her wealth to me since I’m struggling financially right now. But somehow I feel she might not be willing to let go of her mommy and daddy’s money so easily.
You have to wonder how many of these people have psych degrees, or social sciences degrees. Something that has little to no future. You have to ask yourself if these kids had business, computer science, or accounting degrees, how many of them would be wasting their time.
A few things I noticed in the video.
1st: Whoever said that these people didnt want a dictator is a fool and an idiot. Just a glance at the video showed many communists symbols, the most blatant is the buffoon with the China star on his back holding his arm up in the Hitler / Stalin pose. Communism always ends up in some form of dictatorship where the few hold all the power over the masses.
2nd: These are the same people who rioted in England. The bodies might be different but the spirit is the same. They don’t want to work so they pick degrees that are virtually useless, then wonder why they can’t find a job.
3rd: Anyone else notice the pre-printed signs?? Don’t they look just like the signs that we see in all the Zombietimes.com photos?? If so, then we know who prints those, a front group for the communist party USA.
I think it was Lenin when he said whatever about about useful idiots. – Lorica
I do have to chuckle about someone saying some blah blah blah about Gov accountability. LOL Really?!?!?!
The larger the Gov the less accountable it will be. Our Founding Fathers knew this, and enshrined it in a document that liberals tend to interpet anyway they choose. Too funny a liberal talking about gov accountability.
If the Constitution of the United States of America were followed word for word then you would not have the Depts of Education, Energy or Welfare or HUD or… Saving countless millions in tax dollars. The Gov would be accountable to “We the People”, but noooo everytime we try to get the Gov back on the constitutional path we find nothing but obstructions from our lib comrades.
Too funny!!! – Lorica
Let get real here. This has nothing to do with the poor useful idiots. With folks like Congressional Democrats calling for an “American Autumn,” then Van Jones and the unions coming on board, these folks don’t really care about “Sticking It To The Man,” when they are “The Man” ? Hell no.
Dozens of Obama 2008 Wall Street donors now support Romney
Cold $houlder for O, Snubbed by biz titans on Apple fund-raising visit
This is all about simple extortion. Now they can’t have these Democrats (or Republicans) on Wall Street going of the reservation.
What little concensus I can read from this movement thus far demands a minimum living wage of at least $20 per hour for all (regardless of employment status), a single payer health plan that excludes any free market alternative (by law), and free education. All told, it may be that if a $20 per hour living wage were paid to all, a free education given to all and a single payer health plan in place would leave about 25% of that living wage left to live upon. If cat food stays below $1 per ounce, that should work.
