Wrong time, Zuccotti Park's occupation started on 2011-9-17 so single-party domination was largely over. In the following comment of yours:
you still called for the same old method that Micah White deemed to have failed.
Occupying physical space was too old-fashioned. I understood the power of occupying mind space after I couldn't ever get the National Anthem out of my mind after Mark Spitz's seven gold medal wins in Munich in 1972 as well as the horror of the black-masked terrorists. Nor could I ever forget why I associated the Stars and Stripes Forever with magical power.
The power centers were and still are in the boardrooms. Occupying parks has some effect sometimes but ultimately the boards decide with their minds.
Decades later, it's still the same old lie, la, lie. Janus whispered, "Campaign with poetry, govern with prose." Liars.
old news - is this in response to jon's ommissions???
Chappaqua's carpetbaggers have nothing to lose if the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens were plagued by unemployment, crimes, suicides, poverty, violence, diseases, and deaths. They didn't care even after NAFTA and Graham-Leach-Bliley had devastated the U.S. and still pushed more trade deals and favors for Wall Street. They pioneered the cynical approach to the party platform so Bernie would become yet another suckered old fart.
The carpetbaggers are not business people who know why a vibrant economy is important for real estate property owners and managers and why the rich, the poor, can all play a role in prosperity and happiness. They just jumped from one sucked-dry welt to another spot, like fleas. They had to keep on moving or die.
China and India will be the executioners for planet Earth's Homo population. Homo evolution went from H. habilis (handy sex toys), H. erectus (getting result), H. sapiens (getting GOOPy and all wet), and to the Void(Scheiße).
If you've read this good, if not you should it is a 'primer" in my opinion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man
many straws are in the basket but Nader's ego was the finial straw, Nader knew full well he could not win yet he bathed in the glory of 5 million votes, fools who want things to change while they themselves refuse to choose are as bad as those that line their pockets with the planet's ashes
meanwhile naive kids danced in the park
For my babysitter.
Joe DiMaggio, come back! What's waffle? Honey pie?
I worry about the continuity of governance. The extremely close election of 2000 got us and the world to our present dystopian state via partisan resentment and sabotage. 9/11 dug a very deep dark hole for all. Sanders no longer believes that he has a chance to become President. Will he be prepared to govern if the Presidency is shoved into his lap?
I abhor our two major parties' nominees for the Presidency but more 9/11-like aneurysms, such as 7/4, 7/14(already occurred in France), etc. are unwelcomed.
Say wWHHAAAT ?!?!!!?
You're right - Jon Stewart examines the phenomenon that is the Manbaby - good stuff.
No, labels don't mean much. I think having Trump's family members as human shield is good enough for me. I frankly hate the idea of moving to a place where I must adopt a dog to be my best friend. There was also that stinkiest tidal pool which assaulted my sense of smell, not to mention the political cesspool.
If I desire the variety and depth of these experiences(save the stink though - holes down, D.C. wins pool. ), I know that New York can do me better.
In 2009-2011, one of the feet was subdued by voters but the dancer/system did not fall down. There were the money-grubbing blue dogs joining the discredited in-name-only conservatives to block doing things in attempts to extort.
The kleptocracy and the rigged system, not Nader, "killed the planet." The billions of people aspiring to live the rich life by the same way as the West are also culpable.
It's a bit like two non-twin siblings going to college. The first one there used up most of the parents' money so the second one holds them up for more money to fund
college. Equality in identity form is sometimes absolutely impossible.
jon is good and all that he says is true - what is interesting is what he does not say. he says nothing "empire" - the usa and its's almost 1000 bases around the world (or why we spend 50% of our tax dollars on the military?), nothing about triumph of wall street over main street and nothing about the outsourcing of jobs. these are all bipartisan issues. he says nothing about why someone in the bottom 80% of the population would turn to somebody crazy like trump. poor jon he is mouthing the typical liberal complaint but cannot envision a radical critique (that is a michael parenti line in case you were wondering).
Beware of China's Great Firewall here (Don't click if you don't know how to deal with the consequences): "人之初，性本善。性相近，习相远。"

Both Ivanka and Chelsea were born kind-hearted but Chelsea might have been corrupted by the ways of Mammon. Ivanka seems more innocent at this time. I doubt that Drumpf had fancied Chelsea. He's into a different type of females.
Praise the Lord that Michelle could rein in Obama for years without having gonorrhea stains in the White House. Whether it was Michelle or Obama
himself(which I doubt a bit, "boys being boys"), it's laudable.
It's terrible that he really meant it to kowtow to Saudi Arabia's King. I wonder when our President will stoop down and kneel down to China's ruler.
guess what just did this, maybe i'll post some later
So are you both Republicans then?
you should watch the Jon thing if you haven't, it's good
Melania was under a form of slavery alright, H1B visa, in which she was tethered to her employer by a legal leash. Drumpf "bought" her out (redeemed her). She was principled in not dating him while he was "occupied."
It's fine that she might have committed plagiarism because admiring Michelle lightened the guilt of the trespass(black matrons are a GREAT civilizing force in the black communities). Besides, she was a foreigner from a Communist country where private properties were frowned upon.
They're all incestuous in one way or another.
They're all incestuous in one way or another.
I figured that Drumpf's friendship with the Clinton's - cooled when Drumpf couldn't get a 1st good offer on the white slave auction circuit for Chelsea.
They're all incestuous in one way or another. Chelsea heads up the Clinton Foundation, too. It takes connections to get onto a governing board. You know something about 关系(Guanxi - connections/relationships), don't you?
You think that has anything to do with rumors that he got his wife from a white slavery auction?
But - HEYYYYY - Drumpf is willing to give up his empire to a blind trust if elected............OHhhh.....ummmm..........wait a sec.....does it count if that blind trust is his kids????????????
Drumpf is not the first to talk out of the other end. We must ask Ivanka herself. Sometimes chicken egg may actually be the intended result, really. Drumpf knows how to market his daughter to the sugar-daddy industry.
I wonder why though. She should have no problem with paying for college, unlike other college students (I remember "Hello, Houston [Street], we have a problem." and Manhattan's "cobblestone streets and neon light"). Maybe it was just sensual marketing to pedophiles for the resort. Ivanka was probably an offering to the neon God they made.
