No Taxation Without Representation !

Let's use it again. It is just as relevant today as it was then. And it's SIMPLE.

The People are NOT represented in Govt, Why should they pay taxes? The 1% own the govt, let them pay for it.

  • KISS, KISS, KISS #OWS ! (Keep it simple, stupid).
  • LESS IS MORE ! #OWS
  • THERE'S GENIUS IN SIMPLICITY. #OWS

People are up to their eyeballs in their OWN problems. Don't expect the people to eagerly embrace the thousands of problems you're throwing at them ! IT JUST DILUTES THE FIGHT. Yes they are ALL important. IT'S JUST TOO FUCKING MUCH !

The American minds only rally around Bumper sticker slogans.

FOCUS #OWS, FOCUS !

SEE HOW THE PRO'S DO IT. See: http://mathaba.net/news/?x=630247

We are up against the most gigantic, most sophisticated mass media in history. We will NEVER WIN with a thousand fragmented problems as our message. KISS ! OWS K I S S !

The 1% own the country. Let THEM fight for it ! Let them pay for it !

Let the chicken hawks fight. Let Bush's 2 daughters, Obama's 2 daughters and Romney's 5 sons fight in the wars.

Let GW, Rove, Wolfowitz, Cheney, McConnell, Boehner and any of the others in congress that votes for war grab a M16 and combat boots and head for the front line. They might be old, but you're never too old to stop a bullet. No more of these chicken asses pointing the way for the 99%.

In the beginning #OWS knew to start with one simple message. "We are the 99%". Now they have lost their way.

Today it is we are the 99 mixed up messages. The attached article is great.

I think you are wrong in your perspective - Wallstreet caused the meltdown - that was the final straw that got people out in the streets protesting - then no charges were filed - the criminals got multimillion dollar rewards for failure ( public money to bail out criminals ). Now as OWS and all of the Occupy movements progress it has become a protest and movement against sytemic illness of society and the fact that government is letting it happen or is even helping to make it worse.

The more that is shown to be fucked up the more people are gonna say well I had heard about that but now there is this also - we really need to do something.

The movements for Humanity are growing.

You must try to think like those who have hijacked our govt. Divide and conquer. They want the little people to squabble over myriad distractions. Look at everyone beating each other up now over a thousand issues. The article that is attached to this post exposes what I am saying perfectly. It states exactly how the elite feel about the 99%. The first month of #OWS was focused. The eye is off the ball now and the 1% love it.

Sorry - the PTB do put out their distractions. But it seems to be going against them as they are just throwing more fuel on the fire. Giving more people a reason to be dissatisfied with government - and then when people look at government and they see that very noticeable group of assholes in open rebellion against the people - jumping up and down and waving their arms as they shout to the American People - FUCK YOU. Well obviously the corpoRATist's in office are daring us to vote them out of office.

That is the mystery question. Why are they now so comfortable daring us to vote them out? Why do they no longer fear the people? I think http://mathaba.net/news/?x=630247 exposes their biggest weapon against us.

I knew someone who was involved in a major political campaign. He was just amazed at how organized and efficient everything was run. It was managed perfectly at the highest level. Ever since then he is convinced that their ineptness once in govt is intentional.

i think the timing may be more due to the emergence of the internet not wall street

Communications that would otherwise not get out to the people due to MSM News Coverage Blackout - yes the internet has been priceless in this regard - ability to get the news out and then to communicate organize and get action items shared and circulated.
