So is it possible that when you set up a system where individuals can come over here, strap up their boots and bust their ass to become whatever they wanted to be, that system works?

Just imagine if your parents told you to forget about "you can be whatever you want to be" and instead went with "you can be what we will tell you you can be"... Because that is what is happening these days.

We can take care of each other without creating kings and queens to reign down upon us. Another world is possible.

The objective of the American Revolution was to achieve self governance WITHOUT any Kings, Queens, Princes, Princesses, Dukes, Duchesses, ..., and any and all Noblemen. Our forebears have succeeded spectacularly well with our republic and we must not let our heritage be snuffed out.

From the founding of our republic, our forebears have transcended sectarian religious divides and individual statehoods and since then we have gone far beyond that. We believe that our form of self governance banishing religions from the State can survive diversity and flourish through our efforts. We expect no less of anyone who joins us in this enterprise founded and built up by all the world's broken-hearted and down-trodden. Anyone "fresh off the boat" is expected not to cry over "the burning of the boat," for the wanderer has found a new home, (with a warm quilt, I hope [stitch in your piece, too]) of our fellow commoners, and our motto - e pluribus unum.

Ignoblemen really. Save the banksters from their own crazy exploits for plutonium. Ignore the underwater delinquent homeowners thrown out of jobs due to the banksters. Shaft the savers with zero interest rates well after the financial abyss has been averted (by 2011, I reckon). They could not even move to take a job in a different location because their houses were financially "underwater." Defraud the investors with LIBOR fixing. Aside from LIBOR scandal ripping off the mega wealthy asset owners, nearly no one was sent to jail. Pick everyone's pockets through asset inflation fueled by credit expansion.

Now, the U.S. seems to be setting up for the former board director of Walmart to lead the country. Maybe the novice's cattle futures trading "skill" that had turned $5,000 to over $100,000 will work again as miraculously but my question is, "Into whose pocket, yours?" How did THAT happen in the futures trading pits?

We need to circle our wagons in a laager and fight off the raiders of Medicare, Social Security, etc. Audit the morbidly obese well-Fed. Break up the (Tot-)Franken Banks.

Laws are paid for...justice is bought. We the people are weak and without power...we bend to the rules they create. The media has been paid. Free speech is a blog page hidden at the end of a web search engine. What is the first step needed to regain our power? How about throwing walmart overboard? Let's throw their products back in the water...we need massive boycotts. We must pick and choose the rules we allow them to enforce. When bogus laws are created the people must not adhere. We must break laws in the name of freedom. When the supreme court gives our rights away to corporations we must take them back by force. They have left us no other choice. We can no longer play by unfair rules. Left and right black or white the CITIZENS of this nation AND the GLOBAL world must fight against corporate tyranny together.

"We the people are weak and without power" is simply false. Lincoln said, "A house divided against itself shall not stand." The eelites depend on the people but the people can do very well without the eelites.

The eelites count on the people's aversion to violence to continue oppression but history shows very well what happens with the excessive concentration of plutonium in Untermenschen. The U.S. has lived through the Gilded Age before. There is still scar visible in the Wall Street area if you know where to look. The New Deal saved Capitalism but I don't see an FDR these days so we may drift unwillingly and reluctantly down the lake to anarchy. It's as if we are all on the same boat, eelites and all, and it's drifting towards the falloff of a dam. I say that we should row hard in unison to avert the catastrophe but if everyone cannot agree on the correct direction, some of us will row very hard and we would still all fall off the dam and it's no joke. Dam, dam, dam!
