My goodness, this country is absolutely terrified. Terrified of the other side. Terrified of anything new. Scared shitless of attempting to create something different.

Fear tactics are running the country into the ground. Its working like a charm

Imagine if the media reported Employment, like instead of us usually being at 95% employment, we are now at 90%. Would that change the mood? I think so.

Imagine if the media, instead of pushing fear, told the people that it is not hard to start new parties and get ballot access, that campaigning can be done by anyone and everyone. Would change our political mindset? I think so.

Imagine if instead of constantly comparing things to their polar opposite, the media instead focused on comparing them to what they were advertised as. Would this help us to understand what accountabiliy is? I think so.

We need to wake the hell up. The solutions to these problems are very simple, but they need a catalyst. They need the people to realize they have had enough, they are going to stop relying on help and start creating themselves. Stop waiting and start doing.

"Never doubt the ability of a small group of people to affect change. Indeed it is how it has ALWAYS happened"....Meade.

judging from the title of your post, I just naturally assumed you had sent the one I just received.

Not that I give a shit. I don't. And I'm not intimidated.

Imagine if the media reported Employment, like instead of us usually being at 95% employment, we are now at 90%. Would that change the mood? I think so.

While it might place unemployment numbers - which are the main subject of concern; more accurately stated as 91.7 or 91.8 % employment - in the shadow with the positive spin of presentation, tending toward an easing of the public mind regarding economic concerns and therefore improving the chances of the President's electability;

it would also have a negative affect. That being the removal of an unknown - yet significant - number of citizens from the debate. These citizens are those who would hear the new presentation over the television or radio, while engaged in routine activities of their daily lives. Activities like cooking dinner while making sure the kids do their homework. Activities like balancing expenditures like rent and utilities against the necessities of food and gas, without which one cannot hope to pay for these other necessities . . .

Activities that do require some thought, even though routine. And so, occupied in such manner, these citizens would not be free to pay close attention to this new presentation; the presentation would become lost by the needs of the moment.

Such a loss might prove temporary given such a limited reversal. But no doubt, for a period of time these citizens would be removed from the debate simply because their attentiveness, by necessity, lay elsewhere.

"Never doubt the ability of a small group of people to affect change. Indeed it is how it has ALWAYS happened"

Awesome quote

"People saying it's in bad taste are living sheltered lives and don't pay attention to what affects the working class"

I second that. I thought it was an awesome form of protest.

JP and Dimon are some of the biggest welfare crony capitalists in this country

14 billion a year of tax payer dollars given to JP every year. AKA 281 million dollars per state. What could your state do with 281 million dollars every year?

I think I heard the other day that Citibank not only didn't have to pay taxes last year, but actually got a REFUND. Now, that's f---ed up.

More on JP Morgan, this one from 1895 "In 1895, at the depths of the Panic of 1893, the Federal Treasury was nearly out of gold. President Grover Cleveland accepted Morgan's offer to join with the Rothschilds and supply the U.S. Treasury with 3.5 million ounces of gold[9] to restore the treasury surplus in exchange for a 30-year bond issue. The episode saved the Treasury[10] but hurt Cleveland with the agrarian wing of the Democratic Party and became an issue in the election of 1896, when banks came under a withering attack from William Jennings Bryan. Morgan and Wall Street bankers donated heavily to Republican William McKinley, who was elected in 1896 and reelected in 1900."

The interesting part is that I don't believe JP was ever that grossly wealthy; he acted for others as is here obvious. And this wasn't the only country the Rothschilds bailed out.

Nader hits the nail on the head here when he states that the people have convinced themselves they are powerless. They feel that they have no shot at anything.

I have to agree with him. One would think that alternate options would be poppping up all over. Or even that the two corporate parties would be seeing an increase involunteers. Neither of those two are happening.

We are just sitting by idling, hoping that someone saves us.
