OK, you like Hitlary Clinton - I get that !!! However one video link deserves another so I'm bumping your ''shameless plug'' with one my own on behalf of a really good guy who the Democratic Party got rid of :

And I'm defying a died in the wool Democrap voter like yourself, to not shed a tear over your lost prince.

Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan & Kevin McCarthy: Plot To Sabotage US Economy with Frank Luntz

Fri Jun 08, 2012 at 08:15 AM PDT

On January 20, 2009 Republican Leaders in Congress literally plotted to sabotage and undermine U.S. Economy during President Obama's Inauguration.

 In Robert Draper's book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives" Draper wrote that during a four hour, "invitation only" meeting with GOP Hate-Propaganda Minister, Frank Luntz, the below listed Senior GOP Law Writers literally plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America's Economy.

The Guest List:
Frank Luntz - GOP Minister of Propaganda
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA),
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX),
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA),
Sen. Jim DeMint (SC-R),
Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ-R),
Sen. Tom Coburn (OK-R),
Sen. John Ensign (NV-R) and
Sen. Bob Corker (TN-R).

Non-lawmakers present Newt Gingrich

During the four hour meeting:
 The senior GOP members plotted to bring Congress to a standstill regardless how much it would hurt the American Economy by pledging to obstruct and block President Obama on all legislation.

These Republican members of Congress were not simply airing their complaints regarding the other party's political platform for four long hours.  No, these Republican Congressional Policymakers, who were elected to do 'the People's work' were literally plotting to sabotage, undermine and destroy the U.S. Economy.

SO: Health Care and every progressive thing else was sabotaged by the GOP/RepubliCons/1% as well!!!!!

I haven't even been active yet dropped 400 points over night guess people like me aren't welcome around here, it's such a shame really we could have done so much, but the ego is strong and in the end people care more about themselves and their ambitions than the country.

[-] -1 points by shadz66 (17690) 10 months ago

Not sure what has happened to your points but don't get too attached to these ultimately meaningless numbers and stop feeling so sorry for yourself. Of course you're welcome and you've been here a long time - it's just that you're a bit of a stuck record sometimes, lol. Further consider :

We can all reflect that - as ''a young man in college I was not always the most diligent student. One weekend, near the end of term, was particularly eventful and I found myself on Monday morning sitting, looking at a Dynamics final and no memory of any of the fine formulas we had studied that semester. Then I remembered F=ma. From that kernel I was able to derive all of the formulas I needed and ended up doing pretty well. More importantly, I realized the importance of fundamental concepts; I found that if one has a good understanding of core principles the smaller details are easier to work out. This led me a few years ago to ask myself, aside from the individual policies which align my thinking with “liberals”; why am I a liberal?'' &

''It is only natural that parents do all they can for their children, however as wealth accumulates this presents a threat to democracy. This is the threat that concerned Jefferson when he spoke of the need for inheritance taxes, not as a form of revenue but a means to protect the democracy from citizens that might become too powerful, and then threaten the will of the people. It is easy to see how this has become the case in America today.'' +

''The dangers of inherited wealth to our economy are not unlike monarchy to the health of any nation, when power is derived from birthright rather than one’s labor it is more often foolishly applied. As more and more of our economy becomes “inherited wealth” it becomes more of a target for con men and less a tool for innovators. The world’s financial power has been diverted from improving the human condition into money making schemes designed to enrich those who create them.'' from your profile.

Further, we're both Paul Buchheit fans right ? So at least we can agree on THAT ! :-)

Do you remember what I was saying about how the right equates freedom with money then attacks any attempt to limit the power of money by saying it attacks freedom, well read this and watch the Koch bros video at the end...

[-] -2 points by shadz66 (17690) 9 months ago

Bumpage for your ''shameless plug'' and to follow your good link :

I'm beginning to wonder if you ever click on my links and as that disgusting fkn Koch says : ''We want to do a better job of raising up the disadvantaged and the poorest in this country, rather than saying ‘Oh, we’re just fine now.’ We’re not saying that at all. What we’re saying is, we need to analyze all these additional policies, these subsidies, this cronyism, this avalanche of regulations, all these things that are creating a culture of dependency. And like permitting, to start a business, in many cities, to drive a taxicab, to become a hairdresser. Anything that people with limited capital can do to raise themselves up, they keep throwing obstacles in their way. And so we’ve got to clear those out. Or the minimum wage. Or anything that reduces the mobility of labor.'' - now do you imagine that the wholly Corporate Controlled Democraps, who are also so in thrall to Crapitalism, are really going to fight this b-s like a true Labor Based Party would ?

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (10721) from Phoenix, AZ 9 months ago

How do you imagine that the GOP will implement better policies when they are in office?

That being the certain outcome if you attack the Ds, until such time that you can present me with a link that explains how the GOP is better on a certain issue or how you actually intent to defeat at the polls, you have done nothing, I think the time to act is NOW and that action must be done with the real weapons that are at hand, and those that dream of being in charge vise vie their own political party are the very worst, ego driven bunch of all, worst even than the GOP. I may sound harsh, but the one who taught me was much more harsh when telling people the truth, but we were asking for it.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (10721) from Phoenix, AZ 9 months ago

here I don't think you've seen this, oh and I thought OWS was about getting something done....

Nader the traitor has crawled under a rock,

It’s the only place safe from the things that he wrot.

As millennia approached us, we had one last shot,

To keep the planet we’re on from getting, too damn hot.

But Nader thought better his name should be heard.

And Gore was left standing with only his word.

Ten times ten thousand thought Gore couldn’t lose

And a statement was needed to make the world choose

Are we to be puppets and dance on a string?

Or will we be spirits and let our hearts sing?

December reality came crashing in

The court has decided that Bush got the win.

Where was the outrage where were the cries?

Believers were muted they bought all the lies

How could they scream, how could they roar?

When even their ballots weren’t marked for Al Gore?

The Court burned the votes on that day

So it would be safe for the Royals to play.

Tax cuts are sweet

We love all the meat

But Bush had a fear

What if folks start to hear?

An appointment or two

And I give you C-U.

[-] 0 points by TikiJ (-38) 9 months ago

You act as if repealing Glass Steagall, sending all the jobs overseas, and bombing Iraq three times wouldnt have led to the same mess.

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (20422) 9 months ago

I have never voted for a single Republican in my life. I think what they stand for is all wrong. However, I've been voting Democratic and nothing seems to get better. Democrats don't seem to stand for much these days. They have their hand in the pot the same way the Republicans do. In fact, they are maybe worse, because they talk the good talk and then never follow through, far more specious, you could say. They also seem much more fearful, afraid of rocking the boat, so to speak, so they get nothing done and sit and quake on the sidelines. So, don't go telling me who I think is corrupt. They are all corrupt. You are the misguided one. You are the one who doesn't understand what a revolution is. You think a global revolution will be brought about by supporting the status quo. Are you serious?

[-] 5 points by Renneye (3157) 9 months ago

Hey bw, glad to see that you're posting a little more again.

I'm on mainly in the evenings, so I may just have missed them, but it felt like you were posting less and less for a while at a time when we're losing some regulars...and it was worrisome. You, of all people personify what the people of this world need, and what OWS & this forum need, a 'beautifulworld'. :-)

I miss 'jrhirsch' as well, and 'quantumystic' too. Hopefully they're just away briefly and will join OWS again in the fight against TPTB, and advocate for dignity for all of our fellow human beings.

The forum goes through 'growing pains' at times, and I think we're in such a phase right now, with incessant down-votes and decorum problems. But, we'll get through it like any other growing pains we have had in the past, and come out with a COMMUNITY that encourages empathy and fairness for ALL.

Great to see your posts again!

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (20422) 9 months ago

Thanks, Renneye. You're very sweet. Mainly, I'm just busy, but I am not exactly thrilled with the "Occupy Cabal" that the forum is listed as nowadays. It kind of belittles what we do here and I don't find it funny.

I will never give up on the 99%, though, as I know you won't either. So, regardless of who runs things here, and how they run things, I will keep posting and saying what I believe, because, in the end, this movement has changed the dialog in this country and the seeds we planted, though they may take a while to blossom, will eventually do just that.

And, how about trevornemonic? Where did he go?

[-] 4 points by Renneye (3157) 9 months ago

Well thanks, 'bw'. You're quite cherished, yourself...not to mention esteemed.

I hear you loud and clear regarding the "Occupy Cabal" label. I was thinking about it again last night. It was supposedly a joke. Isn't the joke over?! Why is it still there? It's also made it harder to log on and off from this page, and newcomers get put off by 'inconveniences' not to mention 'unprofessionalism'.

'Trevornemonic' indeed! And other good posters too. I'll usually send a PM to regulars that I haven't seen in a while, and invite them back to the discussion. Sometimes that's all it takes, if someone has just become discouraged about the forum or the state of current affairs. It helps if they know that their contributions are appreciated and missed. We've all been there, I think.

Solidarity, beautifulworld!

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (20422) 9 months ago

I have PMd Trevor, and heard nothing back, because I do the same thing, Renneye. We have to stick together. I wonder what happened to him?

Thanks for all your kind words. You are cherished, too. The forum wouldn't be the same without you. Solidarity always.

you are half way there, you see the path that is actually available to us is to knock out one of the legs to the ladder of power and by doing so knocking the whole thing down, but that path does not feed the egos of the Greens and others who would be King...

Your logic is flawed. The truth is we can affect the debate on the margins enough to revel just how committed the GOP is to increasing the wealth of the wealthy. In times like this people could be turned against them in huge numbers, then the Ds would be split wide open before they knew what was happening.

E Pluribus Unum

By PAUL KRUGMAN

It’s that time of year — the long weekend when we gather with friends and family to celebrate hot dogs, potato salad and, yes, the founding of our nation. And it’s also a time for some of us to wax a bit philosophical, to wonder what, exactly, we’re celebrating. Is America in 2013, in any meaningful sense, the same country that declared independence in 1776?

The answer, I’d suggest, is yes. Despite everything, there is a thread of continuity in our national identity — reflected in institutions, ideas and, especially, in attitude — that remains unbroken. Above all, we are still, at root, a nation that believes in democracy, even if we don’t always act on that belief.

And that’s a remarkable thing when you bear in mind just how much the country has changed.

America in 1776 was a rural land, mainly composed of small farmers and, in the South, somewhat bigger farmers with slaves. And the free population consisted of, well, WASPs: almost all came from northwestern Europe, 65 percent came from Britain, and 98 percent were Protestants.

America today is nothing like that, even though some politicians — think Sarah Palin — like to talk as if the “real America” is still white, Protestant, and rural or small-town.

But the real America is, in fact, a nation of metropolitan areas, not small towns. Tellingly, even when Ms. Palin made her infamous remarks in 2008 she did so in Greensboro, N.C., which may not be in the Northeast Corridor but — with a metropolitan population of more than 700,000 — is hardly Mayberry. In fact, two-thirds of Americans live in metro areas with half-a-million or more residents.

Nor, by the way, are most of us living in leafy suburbs. America as a whole has only 87 people per square mile, but the average American, according to the Census Bureau, lives in a census tract with more than 5,000 people per square mile. For all the bashing of the Northeast Corridor as being somehow un-American, this means that the typical American lives in an environment that resembles greater Boston or greater Philadelphia more than it resembles Greensboro, let alone true small towns.

What do we do in these dense metropolitan areas? Almost none of us are farmers; few of us hunt; by and large, we sit in cubicles on weekdays and visit shopping malls on our days off.

And ethnically we are, of course, very different from the founders. Only a minority of today’s Americans are descended from the WASPs and slaves of 1776. The rest are the descendants of successive waves of immigration: first from Ireland and Germany, then from Southern and Eastern Europe, now from Latin America and Asia. We’re no longer an Anglo-Saxon nation; we’re only around half-Protestant; and we’re increasingly nonwhite.

Yet I would maintain that we are still the same country that declared independence all those years ago.

It’s not just that we have maintained continuity of legal government, although that’s not a small thing. The current government of France is, strictly speaking, the Fifth Republic; we had our anti-monarchical revolution first, yet we’re still on Republic No. 1, which actually makes our government one of the oldest in the world.

More important, however, is the enduring hold on our nation of the democratic ideal, the notion that “all men are created equal” — all men, not just men from certain ethnic groups or from aristocratic families. And to this day — or so it seems to me, and I’ve done a lot of traveling in my time — America remains uniquely democratic in its mannerisms, in the way people from different classes interact.

Of course, our democratic ideal has always been accompanied by enormous hypocrisy, starting with the many founding fathers who espoused the rights of man, then went back to enjoying the fruits of slave labor. Today’s America is a place where everyone claims to support equality of opportunity, yet we are, objectively, the most class-ridden nation in the Western world — the country where children of the wealthy are most likely to inherit their parents’ status. It’s also a place where everyone celebrates the right to vote, yet many politicians work hard to disenfranchise the poor and nonwhite.

But that very hypocrisy is, in a way, a good sign. The wealthy may defend their privileges, but given the temper of America, they have to pretend that they’re doing no such thing. The block-the-vote people know what they’re doing, but they also know that they mustn’t say it in so many words. In effect, both groups know that the nation will view them as un-American unless they pay at least lip service to democratic ideals — and in that fact lies the hope of redemption.

So, yes, we are still, in a deep sense, the nation that declared independence and, more important, declared that all men have rights. Let’s all raise our hot dogs in salute.

And Unite and Win!

There's only one person who could defeat Hillary in a dem primary- Tammy Baldwin. It doesn't look like she'll run at this point. The mafia princess Hillary will be the new president in 2016 if she runs. If not, it will be the GOP due to lack of voter interest.

The mature approach for republican politicians to have taken would have been to talk to the administration behind closed doors and figure out what could have been done differently to prevent the outcome that did occur, and implement that plan of action in the future.

Republican politicians are confused about coverups. They think that since the WaterGate cover-up resulted in the impeachment of a Republican president, that all cover-ups are both illegal and impeachable acts.

This is a patently ridiculous position to take by Republican politicians.

I'm just pointing out that the real political destruction in the U.S. comes from the decimation of the moderates. Koch bros equal neo cons, Soros equals progressives.

[-] -2 points by factsrfun (10721) from Phoenix, AZ 9 months ago

Soros has virtually no influence over the Democratic Party so I don't know what the hell you are talking about. Now Kock and Murdock over the GOP that's a different story, facts are facts. So when you lead off with such an obviously flawed statement it is a little difficult to see where you are coming from.

However you touch on an actual issue, so what the hell might as well explain it here as anywhere.

You see the rich have been winning, now it's getting really tough hide just how well off they are compared to the rest of us peasants. This is best understood by considering a couple of trivial tidbits. Last night I was watching an episode of Shark Tank (one of my very favorite shows) a couple of ladies were there pitching a company that sells bedroom stuff for girls, bedding and such, when the sharks discovered that the full room ran around $1400 and the average orders ran $800 to $1200 they were all saying it's way too much for kids room. Now a few years back my Lady and I were walking by a Nordstom's when she saw a cute top, and said I'm going in to try that on. Now I have a broad economic background so i thought to myself this should be fun. To cut to the chase as she was trying it on she discovered it was $600 that was a bit of a shock, (to her), I was somewhat aware of Nordstrom. My point here that Nordstrom is doing pretty well I think and for folks that shop there $1400 on a kids room is like buying a top and skirt to go with it and the sharks are well aware of this, but sitting there in front of millions of peasants watching on the TV, well the Royals don't want to say it out loud.

You may be trying to figure out what has this got to do with the loss of moderates, well here it is, the GOP exist only to defend the economic interest of these rich people as these people got filthy rich they needed to find other reasons for folks to vote for them and all the folks paying attention can see what evil bastards they are so they reach out to those that hate mostly and so we end up with a party devoted to the ultra rich and filled with hateful people. As the economic conditions get more dire the interest of the majority become a source of fear for those in control, so even the most common sense things like America matching at least Italy when it comes to health care are painted as liberal overreach we are at the bottom of the modern pile when it comes to standard of living and life span but we spend more than the next ten put together on war. America is in the grips of Monarchy with the Royal Class building a fearsome army while the people of the land go homeless and hungry all the while we point a figure at North Korea and tell the world "Look we're not the worst!"

Is it really just knowing stuff that you're against? It seems you think anybody that's not reading off the GOP talking points list is in some kind of cabal I think you have stumbled on a little known fact, the truth is very liberal what I mean is that given the condition of the world today anybody who tells the truth is going to sound like a liberal (because the right lies so much they own that) but that's just because the rich have been winning so much and so often, it's got nothing to do with anybody pulling anybody's strings. don't get me wrong they all fall way short, that's why I started my YouTube channel, to get more truth out there:

Is it so difficult for you to understand that Koch brothers manipulates the republican party AND George Soros mainpulates the democrat progressive wing party?

You are corresponding with the guy who studied this stuff back during the 2008 democrat nomination process. Soros and Arianna Huffington go back well over a decade. Soros and Huffington appeared on the same Charlie Rose show hawking their own books well over a decade ago. Soros and Huffington ran the Shadow Government conventions in 2000 and 2004. MSNBC is hooked into Huffington Post and Soros as well. It was SOOOOOO OBVIOUS how quickly everyone in the progressive media abandoned Hillary Clinton and glommed onto Obama even when Hillary Clinton still had more delegates.

First the argument was that Hillary Clinton should not win the nomination because she had more super delegates, because that would be racist. Then suddenly when Hillary Clinton was winning 61% of the total democrat vote over the final 10 weeks of the race, but the super delegates had been convinced to switch to Obama, the argument was that Obama better win because he had the super delegates.

It's really sad that you have no knowledge of this.

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (10721) from Phoenix, AZ 9 months ago

influencing elections outcomes is what folks do, that's a world of difference than the policy effects seen in the Murdock-FOX-Koch Bros-GOP alignment,

The person I'm corresponding with is a political hack here to co-opt OWS for the Green Party so he will tell any lie to support that end, serious discourse with such people only encourages them and confuses others who do not understand their intent, evidence of this is obvious in that it is intellectually impossible to at the same time have such detailed and reason understanding of politics while at the same time being ignorant of the affects a Nader and green Party endorsement would have had on the Gore campaign.
