it is not marching in the streets
it is not holding up signs
it is not going to meetings to complain about wars
it is not going to meetings to complain about the p.i.c.
it is not going to meetings to complain about the banksters

and the text of all amendments,
and our comparison of all of the amendments,
and the Citizens United case transcript,
and the Citizens United decision,
and the Buckley “money is speech” decision,
and analysis of corporate personhood,

JOIN our OWS Working Group:
http://nycga.net/groups/restore-democracy

REGULAR MEETINGS:
Wednesdays 5:30-7:30PM @ 60 Wall St – The Atrium

Our OWS Working Group has one goal -
To support the OWS Declaration

“a democratic government derives
its just power from the people,
not from corporations”

and to do what polls show
80% of Americans want -

To get corrupting money out
of our political system by passing
a Constitutional Amendment that will:

►Reverse the 2010 Supreme Court decision
..…Citizens United that enabled super-pacs
►Reverse the 1976 Supreme Court decision
..…Buckley that equated money is speech
►Eliminate the 1886 judicially created fiction
..…that corporations are people

We will attract candidates to …support an amendment, and we will attract voters to …support an amendment, and we will attract voters to support …candidates who support an amendment

it IS doing what 80% o f Americans already say they want

I agree this is an excellent effort and I hope OWS seeks out those that will support this and help them, while finding out who opposes change as well.....

Hey slammer come on by, tell me how messed up this post is, punk..

[-] 1 points by TheMisfit (48) 2 years ago

The Reps did a great job with the economy in the 90's, but they let their resident idiot Bush ruin it all with his tax plan. While those who felt the greatest impact of the tax plan were the working people, it was not tempered with spending cuts and being thrust into war sure didn't help. Bush led the party to what it is today and they continue to pay a political price for his ineptitude.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

uh excuss me Clinton was in large and in charge in the 90's

but we do agree that tax plan must go

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

So Congress didn't matter when Clinton was in office...

But it's all Congress' fault when Obama is in office?

I swear you don't even read what you type sometimes.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

You know I just don't remember saying that much about Obama, maybe you could share the link?

But if you p[aid any attention to anything you would know that Obama did face a record number of filibusterers in the first two years, but I know you don't you GOP lovin' fool, and you would know something of Clinton's veto's but a GOP deniners like yourself, wouldn't know things like that.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

in regards to patriot act, ndaa's, etc...

And Clinton's vetos... Where are Obama's vetos?

Big difference between Obama and Clinton first of all. Indefinite detention of American citizens laws is a big example.

I'm not a GOP denier. I just know it takes Republicans and Democrats to start a war.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

It takes taking effective action to get things done, something you hope OWS never does.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Do you know what worse than not vetoing the Patriot Act extensions as president? Voting for it as a senator and then again as President. And then your DOJ let's off Goldman Sachs which is a bank who conveniently gave your administration over a million dollars to help get you elected.

Do you think Goldman Sachs is guilty of fraud? Or do you side with the banks and the corrupt government that let them off the hook?

And what are you talking about? You're implying I hope OWS never takes effective action? Where did you get that from? Now you're just making shit up.

I'm just going to start implying things about you that have nothing to do with what you said.

You like watching Desperate House Wives on the weekends and claim it's because of the excellent dialog.

Hey I forgot would go over that part where Romney is better or won't get in if we defeat Obama? I can't seem to find that anywhere, it's like you can't even make the case at all.,,,,,

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Woh woh woh.... when the fuck did I ever say one good remark about Mitt Romney...? This is just more evidence of you pulling made up shit out of your ass.

Fuck Romney. Fuck Obama. Fuck Goldman Sachs. Fuck the Neocon Spy Agenda. Fuck the wars. Fuck the illegal drone strikes.

All these facts I'm saying about Obama is shit Romney full on supports. Romney is pro patriot act, pro spying on Americans. pro drone strikes. Pro goldman sachs. etc...

Obama and Romney both fully support the largest imprisonment of non-violent citizens in the world too. Fuck these corporate whores.

[-] -1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

OK so now for the part where Romney won't take office if Obama don't?

and yet when asked directly you choose not to answer that would be odd, if I didn't know you so well....

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

I've answered a ton of times. You act like we've never had a comment exchange on this forum before. I've even made forum posts on the subject actually.

Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson, Gary Johnson are some examples of alternatives to Romney and Obama. They've been running this entire time but blind bias citizens, like yourself, and tv networks run by the corporations funding their candidates of choice refuse to cover these people on television.

Tell me more how Obama has been forced to do all the tings you disagree with. Like the Patriot Act, indefinite detention laws, drone strikes in foreign countries, giving money to Wall Street, etc...

Do you think Obama will lay back and sign for the anti-gay legislation in the NDAA of 2013 like he did with indefinite detention laws in 2012?

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Which is it Jill Stein or Rocky Anderson or Gary Johnson? you can't vote for all three unless the GOP is right and there is voter fraud.

You don't sound like someone that votes their heart you just sound like "any body but Obama" I don't think you know a damn thing about any of these candidates, and I'm sure the TV stations will run their ads same as any other, people voted for Nader too and we got Bush, people listen to you and we get Romney and that would ACTUALLY be bad, here in the real world where wars are started and such, look all those guys were out there people didn't pick them it's not "the media" fault, that's what democracy looks like...I saw these guys, they sound opportunistic to me and Jill seems to have a personal problem with Romney she runs for whatever office he's running for, but she doesn't look like she's up to the job to me sorry.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

hmmmm I believe you have presented a weak case, I believe that either Obama or Romney will win, given that FACT makes me want the winner to be Obama NOT Romney, so it seems you support ineffective action that would lead to Romney winniong just as Nader led to Bush winning, I believe you are a part of the problem, not the solution based on what you have said here.

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Ineffective action is supporting the current system in which you're protesting.

Do you know who writes the budget? The President signs the budget that is drafted in the House and finalized in the Senate. Clinton can take all of the credit he wants, but the separation of powers ensures that no one person can control the budget, as it should be.

[-] 0 points by slammersworldwillnotbecensored (-184) 2 years ago

exactly....Clinton got only two of his budgets passed, Fy93-94, both which had actual deficits of 281Billion....larger than all but one of the deficits under Reagan.....

all the Budgets from Fy95-Fy07 were written and passed by Republicans in the House and Senate.....

[-] 0 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

It was Clintonss budgets congress passed. His administration wrote and proposed them, presented them to congress, and horse-traded some pretty f-cked up things in order to get them passed.

[-] 0 points by slammersworldwillnotbecensored (-184) 2 years ago

it was NOT Clinton's budgets that were passed, except in 93-94, and those had deficits of 281 billion each....higher per year than all but one of Reagan's deficits.....

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

It was a blood bath in 93 to get the plan through, if we had not let the GOP f**k it up in 2001 might have been worth it, can you imagine if we had zero public debt right now, how different it would be to deal with all this crap, but yeah like you say high price paid for one "welfare reform" one of cruelest things ever done.

[-] -1 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

He's referring to the fact repubs had super majority in house ad sen. And could over ride Clinton veto so they ran things not bill

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Then he was referring to something other than a "fact" as the repubs never had enough to over ride a veto by themselves. Also Bill kick their asses all through the impeachment with about 70% approval most the time, so it sounds to me like you're trying to create some "facts" of your own.

[-] -2 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

Denial. Is not just a river in Egypt is it? You see things the way you want not the way they were.

of course you don't have to believe me about Bill kicking ass just look at the conventions did you see Bush? how about Clinton? with Romney in trouble is he pulling out Bush to barnstorm with him? why not? Bill is sure getting busy for Obama....

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

your entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts, when face with truth the con runs away....they never overrode a single veto and he gave'em plenty...you're the one trapped in a reality of your own making...

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

You don't fix it. Ride this train of cheap money until the wheels fall off.

When the gov is borrowing 43cents of every dollar it spends, its game over. The cuts that would be needed to turn it around would lead to massive rioting and shrink the economy. No politician is going to do that.

Instead I think we are just going to experience a slow decline in quality of life. At this point I dont see a big moment where all hell breaks loose. I think its just going to be a downward fall from grace that most wont notice as long as they have enough gadgets to play with.

Quality of water and air is going down? Who cares, I need another Ipad!

My food is made of pure crap? Who cares, Dancing with the Chef :) is on!

Im working harder and longer than ever before? Oh well, at least I could still afford some new shoes.

My kids are as dumb as a box of rocks? Hopefully DC fixes that.

And on and on we go....A nation that is truly 2 Dumb 2 Fail

[-] 1 points by Blank102 (86) from American Canyon, CA 2 years ago

Bernanke recently said that this nation is on the road to economic ruin very soon. We can't keep spending and borrowing like this. But the president and congress just don't seem to care.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

it wasn't this bad back then but Clinton and the D's fixed it once we could fix it again easy, if the GOP weren't in the way

[-] 2 points by Blank102 (86) from American Canyon, CA 2 years ago

I thought the republicans controlled at least one of the chambers at that time. I could be wrong.

[-] 2 points by TheMisfit (48) 2 years ago

The balanced budget on the 90's came from the Gingrich House of Representatives. The House passed many bills that Clinton opposed, but addressed the economy in a fair manner. Clinton took the credit while trying to raid the SSI fund and cut benefits (and pay) to the military and veterans. He owes his fiscal legacy to the Reps, but will never admit it.

[-] 1 points by epa1nter (4650) from Rutherford, NJ 2 years ago

No, it didn't. It came from the President. The president is required to present his budget to congress. They take i from there. And Gingrich allowed it to be passed in the House while kicking and screaming. Gingrich's main proposal was the Contract on America, and it, thankfully, failed miserably.

But both Clinton and Gingrich can legitimately share the glory of having repealed the Glass/Steagal, paving the way for the economic collapse we are experiencing today.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Not in 1993 the Democrats did it all by themselves without a single Republican vote proving that we don't need them.

Get rid of the GOP!!

[-] 1 points by Blank102 (86) from American Canyon, CA 2 years ago

So you are espousing one party rule? Interesting.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

not at all we got to get rid of one, before we bust the other in half, one party can't really happen any more than three

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

You realize Clinton and D, along with the R (its always both of them in the big screw overs of the term) are the ones that repealed Glass Steagall, which allowed the banks to use our mortgages as investment devices, right? I mean without that being overturned (it was enacted after the Great Depression) we wouldnt have had the housing crash.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I also realize that Clinton balanced the budget and we would have no debt, if Bush hadn’t screwed it up, so you take the bad with the good, of course this downturn would not be so bad if the government had no debt.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

That piece of legislation is what caused the housing collapse. I guess that is a small problem.

So would you be willing to trade a balanced budget right now and throw a pile of shit on the next generation.

You are about as close to a politician as this board has.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

so you blame the housing collapse on the 1993 bill?

You must know a lot about it, pray tell.

I would return the top rate to 90% on high incomes and inheritances till every dollar was paid.

I would apply social security tax on every dollar first to last all forms of income, so it could pay its bills forever.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

First- it was 1999. Old guy goes out, new guy comes in, cheap money everywhere, derivatives up the yahoo, and then the collapse. All within 7 years. Pretty impressive piece of legislation to pass on the way out the door.

You know Clinton was a Bush guy in Arkansas, right? With the Iran contra shit? He doesnt deny that they were friends. You do remember that Bush Sr was head of the CIA right?

Politics is show business for ugly people. Its all a joke. Just like anyone who thinks Obama is going to lose, or that Romney wasnt going to end up with the nomination.

We've been going back and forth for a while here. Im not disagreeing with most of what you are saying. As matter fact, as a registered Dem (still am actually, just dont care) I was pretty lock/stock and barrell with the party for a while (Im only 32). Worked on a mayors campaign in Rochester NY, and then on Obama's in 08. Well, since none of the corruption stuff has changed (wars, fast/furious, gitmo, NDAA, etc), Im not supporting them anymore. I will simply not be a part of that level of corruption.

Trust me, I realize that one of these two disasters wins every election. And has for over a 100 yrs. Its not a pleasant situation. And its staggeringly stupid that nothing else has ever formed.

I just think of that Ghandi quote- Be the change you wish to see in the world". I wish we had parties that actually passed legislation that they promised during campaigns. Neither does. And Im not helping them with the status quo anymore. No more.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

You do know Obama didn't oversee the "fast and futiuos" the way he did the Bin Laden carture/kill if you want to blame him for something seems that would be better. A gop open gitmo so no difference there, have to decice based on something else, as for me.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

And I wish the unicorns hadn't died, but living in the real world i'm going to work to get rid of Republicans.

I guess I could just go fishin and figure what the heck since Bush and Nader beat Gore there really isn't any point anymore.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Ok so we do agree that in 1993 the dems with no GOP vote, passed budget plan that led to a balamced budget for 15 months by the end of the Clinton Presidency?

Right?

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

1993 bedget was for 1994. There was no long term structural issues.

The rise of teh interent, a real bubble, not a fake one like housing or the current stock nonsense, is what gave you the boost.

That and raiding the SS fund.

those who forget the past, will repeat it or something like that, this GOP crowd want the dems to do all the hard work of fixing things after they break it, and people don't even get commitments from them that they won't just break it again, I mean we fixed this budget problem once and many great Democrate Heros gave lost their seats because of it, if you do good people will make you pay for it, so on here we have a bunch of "purest" who want to kick the only guys around willing to even try and do what's right.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

The other "side" won't accept what went wrong in the first place.

Neither side talks about the damage "corporate citizenship" has done and continues to do.

No one from the wrong wing, even mentions how much tighter it's grip became during those Bush years, and it makes me wonder if many of our " negative posters" were out of grade school when those things happened.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

What you say is true, and even on a more basic question, Republicans won't deign that if given a chance they would cut taxes again even more, so how do we stop the madness?

Of course it seems simple to me; get rid of the Republicans, and maybe one day it will seem simple to everyone, of course that's not the end, that's the beginning.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

One of them has already started a post to deny these things, that's why I placed placed a few quotes.

The damage was done by more than just the tax cuts.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6412) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Sure that war that couldn't cost more than a billion or so didn't help any, but the fact remains that all the smart money people were saying we were on track to pay the whole thing off, differences about how fast, then we pasted the tax cuts and no body has said that since, if we can't fix the big obvious stuff how do ever get to the smaller details?

And the even bigger point is what do these guys that said “Washington is taking in too much money!” where are they, why are they not being called to task, because some madman from the desert took down a building and no body has to answer for what they have said or done?

How convenient for them.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

There are places in the free World that Bush/Cheney/Rummy are afraid to visit. Not because of protests, but because they would be subject to arrest.

Yet no one here will call them to task.

That's (R)epelican't honesty for you.

It seems very popular to attack the Ds on the most arcane matters while ignoring completely the totally criminal acts of the GOP.

Something you probably dont know too much about. See, the media always wants to shove any movement into a corner. Paint a picture that stays within the duopoly, while keeping the people divided.

Pro Obama, down with Republicans, is the type of stuff you find on the internet and on TV, to an extent. But go and its quite different. Sure, you get a lot of confused people who simply vote for who their parents did, or who the TV says to, but the majority realize the entire thing is busted, and any attempt at working within these two parties is naive at best, really ignorant at worse.

Anti (R)epelican't I'll give you. the rest is pure assumption.

I've explained over and over, why I am anti (R)epelican't.

Here's a new one.

With the (R)epelican'ts out of power in the States and the Nation, a political vacuum will allow a new party to form.

This needs to done quickly, before the Kochs regain full power over the libe(R)tarians, if we expect to have a chance.

The (R)epelican'ts have got to go!!!

I know there are a lot of stories here, but these are all before 9/11 so people can see what it was like before Bush got his big break.
