Boo Red! Hooray Blue! - forget all the stuff we didn't do. (And oh we're still sponsored by corporate America ... probably the same guys supporting Willard but don't think about that woah no - middle class is standing even though their jobs are in China well we said they're standing (we forgot to mention in protest in the streets and jobless) but oh they are standing... yuk yek - and something something car manufacturers (Just pretend they are not tied in with big oil and Wall Street and that it wasn't a bail out - we kept like 3 factories with workers around pretend it was about them...) Also we love women - they vote the most! equal pay equal work (that is if you can find a job) yek yek - forget about all those men jobs in construction and car manufacturing we saved and created - now take your 77 cents and your lady pills and be grateful - lord knows you can't afford kids in this economy. God bless Obama!

Okay. Listen to me. These people are hearing nothing but blah blah. You will never convince them that their gods are not totally free of self interest and corruption. Just as you'll never convince the other side of the same. The VAST majority of Americans have been so brainwashed by those two parties to believe their superficial propaganda that they will simply scream officially sanctioned "talking points".

You missed my comment about the Republican convention:

'We've "heard" it sucks being broke and we felt your humanness in your pulse beating as we shook your American palms ...and WE know in our hearts if we give corporations unlimited control, it will make lots and lots of opportunities, SOME of which may even include you. '

..................."May the ODDS be ever in your favor ! "

oh they left out the part where the including you part meant trampling your rights in favor of the powerful elite ruling class but that's just this woman's opinion sorry to disappoint ... I know there was a lot of hope in that blatant pandering on stage tonight original post below: http://occupywallst.org/forum/caption-of-the-republican-convention-reads/

That is very true. But I enjoy the fight regardless.

I enjoy it too alas - I don't know why I get so emotionally involved - I guess it's because I was hoping for a future not a bad future like in a Mad Max movie or an Orwell novel but a good one with enjoyable time. Really I don't care about stuff or riches - just some enjoyable time spent not driving to work, not thinking about work, not preparing to go to work, not talking to my therapist about work, not figuring out how to stretch my work check to afford groceries, but actual quality time. I'm not really expecting that will ever happen

  • just fantasizing because I know I'm lucky to have a job. Just a question too if that job included giving blow jobs and selling people in the sex trade would we be lucky to have that job too? Are there limits on that whole lucky thing - because everytime I hear Obama or Romney mention how much worse it could be and how we should be happy with what they have salvaged - I wonder what they mean. Don't you?

I think what they really mean is "Thank you for believing this is such a tough job, because without you I wouldnt be a privelaged club member" :)

true - i also think it means they want us to work for peanuts our whole lives, never hope for anything better, consume as much as possible so the rich stay rich, and die early enough not to strain the insurance system and kiss their feet for being privileged enough to witness their leadership.
- Has everyone forgotten it's called public SERVICE - if I wanted to be lead - I wouldn't need to cast a vote for how I believe the country should be run - I'd let you lead the way.
