Forum Post: Government Shutdown A Distraction From Whats Really Important

Posted 11 months ago on Oct. 6, 2013, 12:15 p.m. EST by harrytuttle (3)

It is funny to me that people place the blame on the Tea Party for the shutdown but you have to understand that both parties are owned by the same powers that be and as such are used like chess pieces to promote particular agendas and hide others. You see democrats want to make the cuts. This is all a ploy for a grand bargain of austerity and the opening of the borders for the free flow of cheap skilled labor. It's also a nice way to keep the TPP off the radar. The funny thing is you jack asses are falling for it. Every thread is Tea party this and Obama that it's a fucking joke. They work towards the same goals it only seems as if they hold opposing views. Haven't you people learned anything yet?

  • The Koch Brothers shut-down wet dream is injuring countless Americans.

  • http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/06/us/a-federal-budget-crisis-months-in-the-planning.html?pagewanted=all

  • Koch Bros are NOT Americans

  • Koch Bros are Brown Shirts

  • If Democrats allow Republicans to win concessions for not blowing up America, the next time they will threaten a blowup if we don't cut Social Security, lift health and safety regulations, eliminate regulations on Wall Street financiers.

  • This is only the beginning if Republicans get their way.

Their "corporation" claims complete innocence...............................:)

  • Spoiled mega-rich Koch brothers inherited their wealth.
  • Nothing wrong with inheriting wealth.
  • What is wrong is that the Koch brothers are disconnected from the 99% of Americans.
  • Koch brothers are un-American
[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 months ago

The real problem, is that they are fully connect to the 99%.

They pump, pipe and refine the petroleum products we all know and use, every day. From the vehicles we use and bring us various "consumables", to the walls we live in and the carpets we walk on, to the paper we wipe with and the paper cup we drink our bottled water from.

It is perhaps, almost impossible to completely avoid their "products".

They just want to write all the rules too.

so you are saying obama is not fast tracking tpp with sopa buried in it? are you saying that both parties don't have the same masters? what exactly is it that you are saying?

[-] 2 points by elf3 (2439) 10 months ago

Obama sold out the American public - as did Bush as did an the Supreme Court and entire Congress full of Republicans and Democrats who like to spend their time mock debating on moral matters, whilst stuffing their pockets full of Wall Streets money and doing their bidding right out in the open in front of all of us (hidden by the corporate media) - and completely selling out the American public so individually they can all get richer than Avarice. I think it gets confusing when you start bagging on Obama or we start bagging on Bush - there is an innate desire within all of us to want to believe the people we side with on societal issues share our moral fabric or matter - unfortunately they do not - it is a rouse. The more we get distracted by the fact that just maybe one side actually cares about Main Street, the more we can realize we out here are all on the same side - and that our enemy is our Corporate Controlled Government - a government that allows a few companies and banks to rule us so they can get a cut. This used to be called Kings and Nobleman - they used to make deals to subvert the peasants as well and the best way to keep them from rebelling was to point the finger at someone else. So they all suck - right?

Girl Friday - did it sink in yet? Will it ever? You are standing for someone you would like to believe shares your moral fabric - it is a lie, a sham, a scam.

Little fish on the hooks ensnared and looking around yelling at the other fish on the hook who is blaming you - why don't you realize the hook is attached to a string, and at the end is your puppet master throwing bate in the water, poisoning it, and throwing dynamite if all else fails. So what is a fish on a hook to do - they have to wrip away from it - hurt itself - tear part of itself off - in order to be free. Rebellion is not without pain, nor is it without sacrifice, nor is it without giving up that easy meal that sat on the end of that hook. Rebellion is the chance to never be reliant on someone else to feed you and then decide when to kill you or throw more fish in the water, or thin the school. If we want to stop being puppets we need to rebel. We need to accept it will get worse before it gets better, we need to give up such flimsy luxuries as i-phones and expensive gadgets and shopping at Wal-Mart. We need to boycott gas, we need to take measures that will force them to get their hooks out of our water.

Stop shopping - stop feeding monopolies, shop small, take your money out of banks - buy only organic products from small companies - protest monopolies - go after the real enemy - go after not just our government - go after those who are bribing them to make you subservient. To make you jump through red tape while they can pay their way around it - stop buying so much crap - it is all crap - see how long you can go just with simple necessities. Protest high rents as a collective - this has to be done by the youth - we're it ... where is everyone? (Oh yes fighting with each other about Obama) hmm

You have a large percentage of people out of work that don't know when they are going to get paid. There is 160 million dollars a day that are lost. That sits on your head. It's time for you to grow the fuck up.

That sits on Congress my friend and those who sold our jobs overseas and bribed Congress to look the other way. Now I know you are confused for sure !

I am a full time secretary and a common citizen - yeah those big profits are sure rolling out of my typing sleeves with my wage that has been stagnant for the last 15 years - Perhaps you're a hired hand designed to keep the movement against Wall Street divided? That or you need a break from here...because I fear you're starting to lose it.

i live in a state of disbelief over the fact that partisan hacks like yourself still don't get it. I mean what are you saying, tptb don't control states? or you fight them at the state level. either way you are wrong. you fight on a national level. in many ways the states are far more corrupt and ignorant. and you only have local press to hold people accountable.

It was the gun nutters that really took this place down after Newtown.

They pretty much chased away the last of the rational posters.

Actually, it's an attempt to exonerate the teabagge(R)s, by claiming it's somebody else's fault.

I need only look at what they are doing in the various States to see the folly in such thoughts.

You are one of those that attacked other users in an organized gang banger style. I know this. You know this.

At this point, I'm going to ask you nicely to stop your current train of attack oriented posting and find an issue you can speak on and provide links to support.

If you continue to attack other users in your current manner, or aimlessly bitch about the site, you will be once again banned.
