That's how you know when your opponent is nearly defeated. The fear, the terror, and the absolute desperation. It's clear in the posts and comments I'm reading from the right wingers who sense that their free ride through life is about to come to an end. It must feel like they're standing on the beach looking at an approaching tsunami. No wonder they're so terrified. Their time has come.

Quit politicizing this movement.

It is non-partisan. Right-wing and left-wing agree that we are not being represented by out elected officials.

I'm not sure how much terror they feel. I think their posts on this site shows that most of them are assholes (not all of them) or they are hypocrites or they can't comprehend people not thinking their way.

[-] 1 points by pissedoffconstructionworker (602) 2 years ago

Yeah, there's some fear and terror, but there's even more butthurt and frustration.

Can't remember where I read this (alicublog comments section??), but the troll ideology is as follows:

"I am a good dog. Master will give me a treat! OWS protestors are bad dogs! Master will not give them any treats! Master will beat them! Beat them, Master! I am a good dog!"

I was wondering: It is merely the 99%'s belief in the value of the Dollar that gives this 1% their wealth/power. Meanwhile, it is the 99% that actually controls directly the goods and services those in the 1% rely on for the sham economy they've built. Basically, if we all just requisitioned the goods and services we have direct control over (as the grocery store employees control the food directly, the gas station attendant controls the gasoline--not the corporate cronies that assert they control these people), well, my question is why don't we just requisition the real wealth, the goods and services? And why don't we stop demanding payment from each other and stop sending the largest cut to our "taskmasters"? Heck, even our soldiers control the guns and tanks directly, not the generals and politicians. Adam Smith himself said those who control the most material wealth are the wealthiest. As it looks to me the only thing that the 1% controls is a bunch of words that say they are entitled to everything. We, the 99%, control it in fact, making us the real force to be reckoned with.

Anyhow, I support you guys 100% and hope I can make it East sometime soon. I have been waiting for this to start for a decade now.

Yes. They know it's inevitable. I had an epiphany today about a certain technology that is going to clean up our bank industry faster than they can deal with it. They know it too. Social media is the start but that's not all. The looming danger that keeps them awake at night is cryptographic currency.

Their terror does not equate to our unity, but it's nice to see those holding a false and unconstitutional position, against the law of the land, show their desparation.

We need an Article V convention now!

@slinkeey.....there is nothing wrong with 'being rich'.. the issue is that the Rich have infiltrated Congress (money will always have power to influence) to such an extent, that they now have too much Control...Glass-Stegall was a great tool to fight this from happening so it definately needs to be brought back.

[-] 1 points by number2 (914) 2 years ago

yes but it's not only the right-wingers. It's the 1%. Remember this movement is not 99% of left-wingers. It's 99% of the people, many of which are right-wingers myself included.

[Removed]

[-] 1 points by number2 (914) 2 years ago

I'm a skeptic too. But I'd like to see the fascists rooted out of this country. Maybe I'm dreaming, but I think a nonpartisan movement of all the people who have been screwed by this system, could do that. I don't see much changing if it stays partisan.

[-] 1 points by Lefty48197 (117) 2 years ago

I guess I was referring to the 100% of the 1% who are right wingers and of course their stooge tools that are making a nuisance of themselves in this forum.

[-] 3 points by slinkeey (244) 2 years ago

There are many very rich democrats.

Break out of the left vs. right paradigm. Remove the blinders and realize the puppets occupy both sides of the isle. After you see that, maybe you can follow the strings See where the intricate web they have wooven is coming to light.

Here's the Forbes 400 "Wealthiest Americans" list-the literal 1%.

Oh wow. Not many "right wingers" in this group is there? Odd...not a whole lot of BANKERS either. (Now I see why you want to call us trolls rather than CORRECT)

[-] 0 points by entrepreneur99 (114) from Los Angeles, CA 2 years ago

Maybe, but you lost me at "right-wingers". This movement is not about the left versus the right, no matter what anybody says, yourself included.

[-] 1 points by Lefty48197 (117) 2 years ago

My post is about the right wingers who are coming into this forum to try and disrupt things. i.e. the trolls. Trust me pal, the trolls are right wingers. I've been studying that animal for too many decades to not know one when I see it.

[-] 1 points by justhefacts (1275) 2 years ago

You mean the people who post facts and actual evidence that crushes your propaganda?

[-] 0 points by Lefty48197 (117) 2 years ago

You wouldn't know a fact if it was smeared in your diaper.

[-] 1 points by justhefacts (1275) 2 years ago

And you apparently have no idea where facts are or what they are used for.

[-] 1 points by number2 (914) 2 years ago

what about the trolls from moveon.org and the democrat party who want to co-opt OWS?

[-] 0 points by Lefty48197 (117) 2 years ago

I haven't seen any of their posts, but the posts from the right wingers, tea baggers, and "libertarians" are hard to miss pal.

[-] 1 points by number2 (914) 2 years ago

probably true from your perspective. I'm a libertarian teabagger and from my perspective, the left-wing stuff sticks out like a sore thumb. I just want this movement to actually work. We got to throw this left and right crap out the window, if it is going to.

[-] 1 points by entrepreneur99 (114) from Los Angeles, CA 2 years ago

Ah! A troll from the left. Welcome. We've been expecting you.

[-] -1 points by MJMorrow (419) 2 years ago

I am not a right winger, but I have the highest contempt for left wingers. I certainly do not fear you in the least. I have been near death and tough talk over a forum means nothing to me. Still, you and this movement may prove useful to my advancement. I intend to make a proposal to your NYCGA. I was discussing things with a former Fortune 500 company CEO. He has initiatives to create careers in the works, but I need to go over the details of his plans, so I may advance my interests while serving his. He did offer that if I could come up with a concrete plan that he will seriously consider helping in a side initiative. He is not b-sing me, because he would just tell me to blow off, otherwise.

Give me your best idea for a high paying career creating initiative. If I think I can advance my interests and the interests of this former CEO though helping your movement, I will advance your plan; directly to a very powerful individual, capable of getting things off the ground.

This is a serious lets talk turkey time. This is not a lets make a guarantee time. The fact is that this can and most likely will fall apart. I don't give a crap about the big shots running the NYCGA and I certainly don't give two hoots about left wing tough talkers. I hate radical left wingers, but if you can advance my interests I will advance your interests, using you as a means to my end.

I am going to make this offer to the NYCGA directly, but I am obviously going to word it a little nicer, since they aren't going to start the conversation with a declaration that I drop to the floor and beg big bad lefty for mercy...lol

LMFAO is this you:

Dear Investor:

Up until now, Goldman Sachs has been silent on the subject of the protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street. That does not mean, however, that it has not been very much on our minds. As thousands have gathered in Lower Manhattan, passionately expressing their deep discontent with the status quo, we have taken note of these protests. And we have asked ourselves this question:

How can we make money off them?

The answer is the newly launched Goldman Sachs Global Rage Fund, whose investment objective is to monetize the Occupy Wall Street protests as they spread around the world. At Goldman, we recognize that the capitalist system as we know it is circling the drain – but there’s plenty of money to be made on the way down.

The Rage Fund will seek out opportunities to invest in products that are poised to benefit from the spreading protests, from police batons and barricades to stun guns and forehead bandages. Furthermore, as clashes between police and protesters turn ever more violent, we are making significant bets on companies that manufacture replacements for broken windows and overturned cars, as well as the raw materials necessary for the construction and incineration of effigies.

It would be tempting, at a time like this, to say “Let them eat cake.” But at Goldman, we are actively seeking to corner the market in cake futures. We project that through our aggressive market manipulation, the price of a piece of cake will quadruple by the end of 2011.

Please contact your Goldman representative for a full prospectus. As the world descends into a Darwinian free-for-all, the Goldman Sachs Rage Fund is a great way to tell the protesters, “Occupy this.” We haven’t felt so good about something we’ve sold since our souls.

Sincerely,

Lloyd Blankfein

Chairman, Goldman Sachs

lol thanks. IT really does capture the smarmy opportunism of Wall St.

Didja know there is actually a "vice fund" out there?

http://www.usamutuals.com/vicefund/phil.aspx

A collection of tobacco, alcohol, and gaming equipment companies.

But I see they've lately added defense companies. I guess killing could be called a vice, too.

They should add porn (if there are any publicly traded porn companies, I don't know).

Vice is recession proof, they say.

The only reason anyone will help anyone is to make money. While you laugh, I actually am in contact with a former Fortune 500 CEO willing to entertain rational initiatives to help employ out of work Americans. Protests are a symptom, but not a solution. Creating an economy where Main Street and Wall Street participates in tremendous wealth creation, where highly educated and/ or skilled Americans have high paying careers is what we need, not left wing hippies. For all the talk of Socialists, left wing freedom fighters and face painting hippies, isn't in funny that a greedy MBA, unafraid to admit that he is in it for the money is actually doing something to help out of work Americans and that it is a former Fortune 500 CEO willing to help that greedy MBA? What initiatives are you working on to employ out of work Americans?

What initiatives are the Marxist Socialists working on? What initiatives are the left wing Liberals working on? What initiatives are the Neo Cons and the Republicans working on? What initiatives is the NYCGA working on? It is easy to judge me, because I am honest and I tell you that I am a self interested man, trying to find a way to make money off of helping out of work Americans, but what are the men and women you admire doing to help out of work Americans? What is that lead singer from Rage Against the Machine doing to create jobs? How about the Hollywood types and the documentary film guys, what are they doing, other than capitalizing on your movement? Am I really that different from Michael Moore or Susan S? I do not think that they are bad people, helping you, while you help them; in fact I admire that they advance themselves in a way that helps others. Mutually beneficial social interaction is the best interaction. If I only had the weath and resources of a Hollywood star, I could do a lot more, but I do not, so I want to build my wealth and gain a new career. In serving my self interests, I can help some people. Is that really so wrong?

"What initiatives are you working on to employ out of work Americans?"

I'm working on expanding my business so I can hire two full time employees. But unfortunately, my small business clients have suffered in this economy. The banks were bailed out so they would continue to lend to small businesses but they are just sitting on their money.

Perhaps if we could effect some change, I could do my very small part to improve the economy and get 2 Americans off the unemployment rolls.

[-] 1 points by MJMorrow (419) 2 years ago

Yes, this is a very real problem for small business owners and I admire that you want to help hire Americans. I think we put too much burden on small business owners. It is a great good that small business owners hire so many Americans, but we need to boost diversity of commercial enterprise development and we need to get big business to hire Americans. We need well funded companies working on stuff like nano drone artificial immune systems to conquer HIV and help allow humans to live on other Worlds. That sort of stuff sets a country apart from another, creates a wow factor and turns investors on. We don't want to just employ Americans, we want to employ Americans in things that make the World go, "OMFG! I want to move there and invest in the USA!" =)
