Nothing has changed. The economy is going to keep getting worse as long as we keep putting bought out politicians in a position of greatness and hope.

Will the public wake up? Or will they simply end up blaming the wrong people?

Either way, the politicians are going to act like they didnt know about it (like in 08) and will still make out like a bandit. At the expense of the people.

That's what happens when you endorse people who are endorsed/bribed by banks/oil/insurance.

You get screwed. Shocking.

The Abject Tyranny of 'Compound Interest Generating Usurious Debt' & Modern Electronic Double Entry Bookkeeping, which is now so deeply embedded within a 'Mesmerising Mysterious & Magical 'Mythical Money Matrix' of 'Debt Based Fiat Money' - has us all enraptured, ensnared and entrapped - BUT ONLY until and unless we all decide together to wake up & say - WTF ?!!! - at which point, it dissolves at our collective realisation and ridicule and the 'tin pot emperors' are revealed as the evil avaricious naked pygmies that they actually are !!! In just 4 words : "SAY NO TO USURY" !! Spleen vented, below I append some hopefully relevant links !

Our country now resembles a grotesquely dysfunctional family where the father and his friends rape and beat the sons and daughters while Mom,who knows what's happening keeps her mouth shut while fetching beers and sandwiches for the abusers.How could anyone feel anything but total disgust for parents like these?How could anyone feel anything but sympathy for the children when they murder such parents?The Democrats have behaved just like the submissive mother and IMHO,the Democrats are even more responsible for the current economic rape camp we now all have to live in,like a bunch of abused children in a trailer with black plastic garbage bags taped over the windows.

Dems are not the same as Republicans.! Dems have real problems that can be managed if we get money out of politics and rise up to force Dems to be true to left wing ideals. Republicans are too deep in the pocket of the 1% elites.

Whats wrong? Is your purpose here simply to spread the lie that Democrats are the same as republicans? Why? You don't care about the issues OWS cares about? Money out of politics? debt forgiveness? tax the wealthy? public option? Nothing on these important issues? freeze foreclosures? stronger fin reform?

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) 9 years ago

Way to reinforce the party dogma that keeps the people divided.

[-] -2 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

Your still not making sense. I believe in truth. Republicans have pushed the laws the 1% elites want passed. Some dems vote for them as well. Liberal ideas will solve our problems, not republican ideas. There is a difference. All the issues Ilisted have liberal solutions that OWS would support. The people must force these solutions on the govt. So what dogma are you talking about? public option, 1% tax increases? Make some sense.

[-] 3 points by richardkentgates (3269) 9 years ago

Yes, the republicans have fucked things up. And the Dems have been in lock step. Look at the actions not the words. They use this pointing of fingers at each other as a means to excusing "compromises" that aren't compromises at all, they are the end goal. Our "leaders" have the same goals and interest with few exceptions. I didn't see Obama protest money in politics by rising above it. He has done as much damage to the bill of rights as Bush did. Tell me any of those things aren't true.

[-] -1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

Dems have not been in lock step. Some have failed. But not all. And many more remain with OWS agenda. Your exagerations are not true. Pres Obama has ended torture, the iraq war, secret CIA prisons, cut military budget, merc use, not detained indefinitely any new people. Pres Obama has come out against citizens United at the state of the Union, and appointed Justices that would overturn it, What the fuck do you want? He should disarm unilaterly so the republicans can win. Your criticisms are unreasonable, naive, and dishonest. Your clearly not understanding how American politics works. Pres csan do very little without the people rising up to push theright agenda. It is out fault. not his. You should not expect anyone to do everything for you without working. Don't be a lazy, entitled, spoiled american suburbanite. Get off your fat ass, out of the comfortable tract house and get to fuckin work. instead of whining and complaining you should do something for your country.

[-] -1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

So he has ended wars, reduced deaths and that ain't enough for you. You have no criticism for republicans? Why not? Are they innocent on all these issues? Or are you simply here to tear down one party? The repubs created the CU lawsuit, appointed the judges that passed it. Dems have come out against CU, pushed laws to minimize it, appointed judges who would overturn it. Republicans have continued to support it and the concepts of busines as people/money as speech. That is republicans. No criticism for them? Lean right much?

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6819) from St Louis, MO 9 years ago

Obama did NOT end the Iraqi war, he has not ended torture or secret CIA prisons. Shill for Obama if you want, but don't spread those bullshit lies.

The timeline for the (so-called) end of the Iraq war was signed by Bush and the Iraqi government in the summer of '08, before Obama was in office. It was called the 'Status of Forces Agreement.' Google it.

[-] -1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

You dare claim that war criminal Bush ended that illegal oil war because he signed a piece of paper. You think he would have done that? then you are a naive moron are a rabid Bush supported. Pres Obama ended the war whatever your War criminal signed. And Pres Obama did end torture (and stopped calling waterboarding acceptable interrogation method) di end secret CIA prisons, and did end extraordinary rendition. Sorry. All these republican violations Pres Obama stopped. Oh Pres Obama also has not indef detained any new cases either. Only Bushs leftovers remain. And we would be done with them if republicans did not prevent the closing of gitmo.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6819) from St Louis, MO 9 years ago

Google it, then come back and tell me I'm full of shit. You're also clueless about the closing of Gitmo. I'd give you a link, but, . . . gasp, you might actually learn something. And how the fuck would you know he ended secret CIA prisons, you hear it on the tele? Hint: there are plenty of secret CIA prisons still in operation. You Obama apologists don't care for the truth any more than the Repubs, apparently. Like I said, shill for Obama, but stop with the bullshit lies, easily proven by a simple Google search, something you guys refuse to do.

But, I'll post a couple links for those on this forum that actually do want to learn something:

I didn't say he hasn't done good things. But I'm not an investment to gain or lose political capital making it ok to do the shitty things he has done. I won't fault him for what he hasn't been able to do. I am pointing out the things he has chosen to do.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

You don't know what you're talking about. You expect one Pres to do everything. You create impossible measures. He has been dealing with the most resistance than any president in history. Republicans created these problems and prevented thedems from doing more than they did. We would have gotten more if not for the republicans. but you give them another pass. No mention of their obstruction, and delay. Seems unfair and partisan.

[-] 3 points by richardkentgates (3269) 9 years ago

We are in extreme times buddy. I voted for the first time in my life to help get him elected. He said Change and I WANT CHANGE. Not some goddamn marketing hype and a shitty product. I could have gone the rest of my life without voting because it's never going to change. You know why it isn't going to change, because the guy I thought was going to bring change has brought more of what I hate and loath. More national security. More power for the pentagon and DHS to bring to fruition every single Orwellian prediction. When you here republicans talking about simpler times, those time involved Glass Steagall and a strong defense of the bill of rights. When Obama compromises, they just take the compromise and spin it to make Republican voters more afraid of him, it doesn't garner favor for him to keep compromising. Yet he continues to pander. What do I want? I want a president with some goddamn balls. And no, Romney sure as hell doesn't fit that bill either, not by a long shot.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

I didn't dismiss any facts. Just trying to get you to understand how the world works. You talked anout compromise but didn't criticize the republicans who forced that compromise. They indicates a partisan republican troll. YOU are dismissing that fact. LMFAO. I guess you are beat.

[-] 0 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

You don't know why he compromises? Are you a fucking 12 yrold. Grow up. Presidents can't do everything. If that is what you thought then that is your failure. You mention compromise but you don't criticise the republicans who he must give in to. Everything you claim to want has been watered down by republican obstruction. No complaints from you though. Another pass for the republicans. You are transparent.

Obama killed American citizens abroad, no questions asked. He has a kill list. He requested the indefinite detention of Americans in the NDAA 2012 act.

There is no way the republicans and all their military contractor special interests would have thrown away all that profit or even waited one second on it. The minute he put his foot down they would have caved to the flow of money and profit like money were crack. The budget would have passed without the indefinite detention. Again, blaming the other party is an excuse used on both sides.

[Removed]

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) 9 years ago

I knew this would be your argument.

Picture it,

The republicans arguing to the public that Obama is weak on defense because he won't pass the budget. Then Obama retorts with the reason he isn't passing it is because it calls for the indefinite detention of US citizens and suspends habeas corpus.

So the reason the republicans would not make a public spectacle of this hinge pin is that they would look like Nazi creeps, no way they would touch that. The bill would have passed with no more notice than it actually received.

I have no interest in trading freedom for fear. If you're afraid, send a letter to Washington demanding they stop acting like barbarians in the middle eat. Request that they go thrue the UN or engage in diplomatic solutions. Stop paying dictators, stop blowing up kids with bombs. Your fear has a source, it's the pentagon. No, I will not trade freedom for fear. I will however continue to call for the dismantling of the pentagon because they cause the hate against this country. They provoke the reprisals. They kill women and children inside the borders of sovereign nations, not me.

We've had a kill list since the fuckin vietnam war. What are you somekinda moron. We were killing thousands a week from kill lists that were dictated by front line commanders. This president has ended that practice and reduced those killings. If you expect him to give up superpacs (which he isn't allowed to control by the way) you want the republicans to win. And once again you are focusing all your criticism on Dems when Repubs created the CU lawsuit. Appointed the judges who passed it and continue to support it. Democrats have come out against it, they have put out legislation to minimize it and you criticise the dems and give the repubs a pass. Because you are clearly a republican partisan. case closed.

You cant discuss banking fraud because you dont even understand what happened with MF Global and whats at the heart of LIBOR manipulation. Let me guess, you don think gold and silver are being manipulated either.

You can't discuss NDAA because you dont understand the process.

And you can't dicsuss kill lists because you arent current enough on whats going on.

And you think he would lose if he gave up superpacs, because apparently you dont think Americans are smart enough to think for themselves.

Click on the News button at the top of your screen and read that. When the site you are on is posting that stuff, your partisan nonsense should head out the door.

Divide and conquer is teh strategy of the power brokers, and while you are passionate, you are unknowingly playing right into their hands.

Actually it was the facsist leaders of both parties taht have doen this. Conservatives arent to blame, and neither are liberals, in the sense as the goals they want are not the ones that are screwing the country..

But they are to blame in that they refuse to start other things and create other options, instead relying on criminal enterprise to magiacally straighten up and fly straight. It doenst happen.

My critism is pretty balanced, thers just way more ardent Dem supporters here than the other side. They come to harrass, and then go.

There's a few here that will still vouch for Obama even if he starts a war with Iran. I dont have a lot of patience for the level of blind loyalty.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 9 years ago

But he hasn't started the Iranian war. The republicans have been pressuring him to invade but he has resisted.

Please. There is no comparison between Pres Obama and Pres Bush. They are miles apart. For you to compare them is ludicrous and shows how partisan you are.

You arethe one who appears to blindly loyal to the republicans!. You have been a good lapdog by criticising the Democrats incessantly. Not a bit of criticism of republicans. And you claim the conservatives are not to blame? That is just covering for the republicans. Low regulations, low taxes, and costly wars are all conservative agenda items. Who the fuck do you think you are kidding? And of course ending Social Security which you pushed earlier. Dishonest. You are a republican asstroll
