Instead of beating drums downtown, beat them outside of events frequented by the 1%.

If you really want to get in the 1%'s hair, hit them where it hurts: their pocketbooks. Boycott the corporations they own & shop with cooperatives instead. They're owned by the 99%. Become a member of one today and fine out what a difference it makes using a company that you own, that you control, and that pays you when it is successful. usa2012.coop www.ncba.coop

Governments—state and federal—could bypass the interest tab by setting up their own publicly-owned banks. Banking would become a public utility, a tool for promoting productivity and trade rather than for extracting wealth from the debtor class.

Congress could go further: it could reclaim the power to issue money from the banks and fund its budget directly. It could do this, in fact, without changing any laws. Congress is empowered to “coin money,” and the Constitution sets no limit on the face amount of the coins. Congress could issue a few one-trillion dollar coins, deposit them in an account, and start writing checks.

The Fed’s own figures show that the money supply has shrunk by $3 trillion since 2008. That sum could be spent into the economy without inflating prices. Three trillion dollars could go a long way toward providing the jobs and social services necessary to fulfill an Economic Bill of Rights. Guaranteeing employment to anyone willing and able to work would increase GDP, allowing the money supply to expand even further without inflating prices, since supply and demand would increase together.

Since when is this movement about telling people where or how to spend thier money? Are you really that delusional to think these events are only attended by the 1%? Do you really think everyone who donates to a cause is evil?
Many people who attend these functions are very wealthy..some not so much, but that hardly makes them evil or corrupt.

Before you go jumping in front of the evil charity train, maybe you should investigate how much money is actually spent on the cause .Then find out if there will be children and patients in attendance as there often is, in the case of the health and children's related functions. How will you explain to them that they are not " worthy of the proceeds from this charity"?

Hey. Don't believe the 1% propaganda. Charity is their way of hiding their "war against the 99%" meetings. Have you looved at what those ass holes are "donating" to?

UNICEF, the TEAK Fellowship, the Breast Cancer Research Foundadtion. AHH I cant look at any more! Those horrible people

[-] 1 points by WorkingMom2 (26) from New York, NY 2 years ago

You really are ill informed. Have you ever donated to a cause? Or volunteered at a shelter or read a book to kids in a cancer ward? Have you ever stood on your feet for 8 hrs and helped serve hungry Americans a Thanksgiving meal at a soup kitchen? Where do you think the funding comes from? Falls from the sky? It sure as heck doesnt come from the Gov't. Go tell that kid who just recieved a chemo treatment at St Judes Hospital which was funded by one of these evil 1% charity events, that he isn't worthy of it. This movement has lost all focus. It is becoming one based on jealousy and misinformation. Get back to the basics and start working on what is really screwed up in this country.

[-] -1 points by gr57 (457) 2 years ago

Lol. Wow man. Scarcastic. I know the importance. I raise money ever year for testiculat and prostace cancer and collect canned food for my chirch. I know about charity

[-] 0 points by steven2002 (363) 2 years ago

Let's go and completely disrupt the event. We can storm the event chant and drum. If the cops come we will fight them too. Everybody needs to help, we need to be heard. Show the 1% what we are made of.

Right, let's all go and disrupt this blatant display of wealth and greed for such a worthless cause.

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

That's just 1 event out of how many?

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

you obviously did not look at the link. All of the events on the social calendar are fundraisers for various educational and medical societies.

So go and protest and explain why you don't want cancer research funded.

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

Sorry, let me double check

The New York City Opera, the Ballet, the Gugenhiem, the historical society, and the fine arts meuseum are anti 99%? You know what those things are right?

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

So? Those events attract the wealthiest people in the city who come there primarily for networking purposes and to help their image.

[-] 0 points by gr57 (457) 2 years ago

Or they like fine art!

I'm in college yet I have season tickets to my cities opera and symphony orchestra. Does that make me a 1%er?

[-] -1 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

Where do you live?? Time to protest at your house to disrupt the networking you are conducting with Donald Trump.

[-] 0 points by gr57 (457) 2 years ago

Haha. :)

If you want to find me, check the 1%er clubhouse you all call the "Canine Companions For Independence Hearts & Heroes 10th Annual Gala. "

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

Just a front for the "1% Networking Society". You can't fool me. BWAHAHAHAHA! I'll be the guy with the sign "No dogs for the 1%"

[-] 0 points by gr57 (457) 2 years ago

Shh... How do you know abut 1% Club? God dam it. Now we'll have to scrap everything. I was really looking forward to meeting my good friends, the Gates, at the "The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's Protecting Kids First! Gala." Now we'll have to change everything around. Thanks for blowing out cover

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

Success!!!

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

so you posted the headlines. Did you actually post the event to see why it was being held? Try it, you might learn something.

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

Yes, I didn't learn anything. Most of those events are more about rubbing shoulders amongst the 1% than they are about the actually charity event.

[-] 0 points by joyouknowme (0) 2 years ago

Completely false. These "1%ers " and others, are donating a LOT of their personal money ( for the husbands it is hard- earned and well-earned) to these charities. They need people like this to have charities function! I have gone to more of these events because i WORK at them, these people are giving and changing the world... while you are selfishly bashing them for having the money to do so? What are YOU doing to change the world? Oh yeah.. you're pissing in the streets of New York protesting for your own PERSONAL gain... Get a job and don't bash those who are smart enough to make something of themselves and give back .

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

And you know that how????

[-] 2 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

Because I've been to those types of events.

[-] -1 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

Wow, you have uncovered the horrible secret of charity events. People go and do deals in addition to paying money to eat and also contribute money for the event's beneficiaries.

So which event do you want to disrupt first?

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

Honestly, me personally? I'd like to see all of them disrupted regardless of "cause"

[-] 0 points by pinker (586) 2 years ago

And that's the problem with many OWS protestors. They're just plain uninformed. Please go protest outside of the breast cancer fund raiser. That'll be great press.

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

That's what I thought. Too bad, I was hoping I was wrong about you.

[-] -1 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

So what if deals are being made? Disrupting a benefit for a charity that helps disadvantaged kids helps OWS in what way?

[-] 1 points by rbe (687) 2 years ago

Not all of the events on the list are about helping medical and poverty focused charities.

[-] 0 points by velveeta (230) 2 years ago

The 1% has trillion$ to donate to cancer research. We can see how well they've done (NOT). These are cardboard charities designed to relieve the guilt of being filthy rich. If the 1% wants to cure cancer, they'd of done it decades ago.

[-] 0 points by HarryPairatestes2 (380) from Barrow, AK 2 years ago

Riiiiight....

Too bad Steve Jobs didn't follow your advice.

Steve Jobs was the least charitable billionaire out there.. unreal isnt it?

Seriously. The guy could've helped cure cancer but instead invented the world's fanciest phone.
