Ummm not that I am complaining about the popularity of a couple of my comments - it is just strange to see them go from negative numbers to major positive numbers.

Did anyone actually vote for any of these comments that are currently on the Board? the time of this posting is - Eastern time is 6:30pm

poor little Dk haveing trouble dealing with the fact you have become what you hate? anyone who does not agree with you is a RINO shill, but you being a left wing hate monger shill is ok. you need to open your mind and understand people with good ideas may not think like you all the time. AS for points........lol a childish way to make losers think they matter........grown ups wouldnt find much use in them.

I am sorry - were U squeaking at me? Who R U ? Joined 9/12/2012 ? Ummm some how I think not.

[-] 1 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

im a person who has watched from the back seats for a bit of time to decide if OWS was something i could support. what do you care about my start date? all that proves is you have had more time to be stupid nothing more. this forum seems to be nothing more than extreme left wing hate mongers. If you dont support obama you labeled a rup shill........i see blanket hateful post, its just sad. It seems like many of the people on here have became what they hate. That does not give you the high ground like you think it does, it just well.........makes you look like the troll. That makes it hard for rational people to support this movement.

[-] 3 points by flip (7042) 2 years ago

you are mostly right about this forum but it does not represent the real ows movement. not sure how it got this way but it is a shame. you seem to have hooked up some of the more annoying elements. to get a real sense of ows you need to go to one of their larger demos. my feeling is that many of the grassroots tea party people who find much in common with those at zucatti park in the old days.

[+] -13 points by DKAtoday (26479) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

If you looked at any of my posts you would see that your assertion that I am a dem campaigner/supporter would be mistaken. As for others including myself who campaign against mittens? It is the only sane thing to do.

[-] 2 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

you belive in voteing for the lesser of two evils then right?( i dont want to put words in your mouth) well them some pointed out you are still voteing evil and you didnt seem to like it much. I am a conservative and i can say I have never voted rep......or dem i have never liked either one and i dont vote the lesser of two evils......i wish a valid 3rd party was around neither party gives a shit about the people never have and never will. Dems are just as misguided if everyone votes the lesser of two evils we will never have any other choice. I got a bit long winded there bottom line you have trolled people who suggest 3rd party votes.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

3rd partys are frozen out of power! We must get election/campaign laws changed to break the grip of party duopoly.

Until that timewe must vote for the "BETTER" party! imperfect, even corrupt. but better and more likely to serve the 99%.

[-] 0 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

I'm sorry when words you used to describe the "better" are that then I can't vote for that....I'm sorry I will never vote for te less corrupt or corrupt in a different area my conscience will not allow me to. You have to follow your own heart....best of luck to in whatever you chose

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Yes indeed. You must follow your conscience. Vote how you feel! Don't vote at all!

What state do you live in?

[-] 0 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

[-] 2 points by flip (7042) 2 years ago

if you really want to get a sense of ows go to www.democracynow.org (9/17) and watch or listen to todays show - i am sure it will be a good overview.

[+] -12 points by DKAtoday (26479) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I have not trolled people pushing 3rd party candidates. But for this election none will win the presidential election.

For this election at this point in time there is only one choice and it ain't mittens. Next election 2016 is another story if progressives independents greens and whoever else wants to run get busy now - they might have a real opportunity in 2016. In the meantime it makes a lot of sense to push third party people for house and senate seats on the fed level as well as state level.

[-] 3 points by LeoYo (5866) 2 years ago

Damn right! If third parties don't push for their own senators and governors, they'll never have anyone the majority thinks is capable of being president.

[-] 1 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

none of them have ever had a chance......my point is maybe its time to change that. I can honestly say as a conservative no reps deserve my vote and they count on the fact i will vote the lesser of 2 and i will not. It would just be nice if that logic was applied on the other side. only when dems and rep understand we demand better and will not vote lesser of 2 will things change. Im not asking you to not hate Mitt or to vote for him all im asking is practice what you preach. demand the same from your guy. since it looks like neither rep or dems are going to change then a new party needs to come to pass. hell surely with 3 or even more choices we can maybe get it right sometimes...both parties are the same i know you may think they are not but from my point of view they are.....i just wish there was another choice....because im tired of beign treated like a mushroom ( kept in the dark and fed shit)

[+] -12 points by DKAtoday (26479) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Read my letters to government - they can not be considered fan mail. And they were written more for public consideration of facts then for any other reason. Also I have been pushing issues not candidates.

[-] 0 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

to be fair i have not read every post you made. but i have read many that made me come to my con. Look im probably the last kind of person welcome here. I am conser. (but i dont vote rep or dem, neith deserve my vote) I work in banking (banking software deve.) my parents run a small oil field services company, my wife is a lawer. my background is from agriculture and energy i was taught to work hard and to give a hand up not a hand out. i was taught bad thing happen to good people every day. Also that being stupid has negative outcomes (being told you can afford a 300k house when you make 40k a yr) personal accountablity meant a lot growing up. I try to keep envy out of my life, and learn to love what i have not what my neighbor has. I dont want the gov. to take care of me; freedom to me is the light in the darkness, but freedom also means you will fail. belive me my family has fallen flat on our asses many times but we never blamed others and we never gave up. It seems like this movement has no place for people like that..........seems like your only welcome here if you want socialism.

[-] 2 points by gsw (2697) 2 years ago

"seems like you're only welcome here if you want socialism"

Our army is socialist, government owned, for your information.

Socialism may happen if people aren't given better from their government.

Personally, I like universal health care, non-corporate health care, (presently 31percent goes to non medical expenses.) I do not support for profit schools.

Problem is, big oil takes billions of dollars in tax credits. It would be better to nationalize the oil in my opinion.

And if national debt can't get paid back. Then screw it. Declare bankruptcy. Move on, and hopefully learn from past mistake. Congress should pay it back, but they can't so screw the debt. I don't see why all the interest is required, when the people didn't have real representation, in creating the debt.

That may not be good for stock market. Bummer. No guarantees on return of investment, as they well know.

Short of all that look to www.voterocky.org Rocky's Plan see solutions -- wealth and income.

[-] -2 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

so you dont understand why our army is not socialists (they are not). They are an extention of us......paid for by us they do what we ask of them calling them just gov owned is way off course. As for HC i do not want retarded theives runing it and the gov. is just that. Those oil companies give more in taxes than you will ever see in your life and provide jobs to people. The debt is out of control, its out of control because we spend to much not because we dont tax enough. I just belive if you depend on someone else for the ness. in life you will always come up short (because no one will look out for like you can/will) I will look at the link you gave maybe it will restore some of my faith in humanity.....

[-] 1 points by gsw (2697) 2 years ago

I agree we must encourage individual survival and life skills, and fortitude to bounce back when life happens. People need to look to themselves first, and their family second, for support. Serious education tax credits, which could go towards student loan debt over a series of years could help in that. Also, colleges need to get back to teaching, less sports: huge salaries for admin and football coaches. If NFL pays for college football, then ok. they should have enough to cover it.)

But everyone has a time when they may need a helping hand back up.

We do tax enough, you are right: military overeaching, and tax cuts for rich for 10 years, and other unpaid obligations, including current high unemployment combines for not enough revenue stream for what congress obliges, in current years. we should scale back military committments for a while, till budget gets right side up.

we may need to declare interest holiday on debt, if we are to get chance to pay it off.

I still don't see how us military being extension of us, and doing what we want, would not be much different to a national health system. The Physicians for a National Health Program, think it would provide better outcomes. http://www.pnhp.org/

[-] 0 points by NVPHIL (664) 2 years ago

It will probably take a couple of election cycles of good third party turnout before the country realizes a third party presidential win. Since their will alwaysbe excuses to vote the lesser of two evils we might as well start voting third party now.

[+] -11 points by DKAtoday (26479) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Absolutely vote for the best individuals that we have available/running for office. As for the Presidential race(?) oppose mittens. When we have real people of and for the people in office - that will make a huge difference no matter who is president - but a majority of good people need to be in the house and senate before we could risk having a total waste of space like mittens as president. This goes for state politics as well.

Well, part of the problem is that [removed] has been making sockpuppets to upvote his/herself. I'm going to make them wear the cone of shame for a few hours.

Edit: I think that's enough shame for now.

[-] 0 points by TomJerryAndGavin (6) 2 years ago

VQkag2 has been using sock puppets for vote manipulation for ages now. You should just remove the scoring system which is hierarchical and not in the spirit of OWS. Better yet, you should refuse to get soft like melted butter and to be spread on Obama's toasts. He's eating you for breakfast! This site has become a pro-democrat campaign site. You know it, we all know it. Partisan Powers are being protected by you, I actually think you might be VQkag2, that would explain why he never got banned. I guess anarchy doesn't work and we should play into the system, but, by golly, I thought you would have resisted a bit longer.

What you hate is having outed a member of your own team, Partisan Powers, for vote manipulation. I'm willing to bet this was your idea and your plan was to blame Odin. Too bad there's something called an IP, and jart was able to catch you guys red handed. Pathetic.

The tone of which things were carried out was done to mocking and to be laugh at. then the fact you simply refuse to answer a single question proves that your head is so far up your ass that it is sticking out you own mouth spewing shit that you think is god tier.

What's sad is having VQkag2 intensely manipulate votes so that you can blame it on Odin, but then forget about IP addresses. Partisan Powers have no shame. At least you didn't vehemently attack Odin's family again, that was worse than your little vote manipulation trick.
