Forum Post: OWC Manifesto

I am tired of hearing that OWC has no specific set of demands, principles, issues. They obviously have not been reading the Public Forum.

I just finished reading an Amazing Book! The Price of Civilization.

Every student should adopt this as a starting place for a list of demands and issues. It may not cover everything. But it certainly is a great start.

Every senior citizen should read it and press for change.

Every person who is not part of the 99% should read it. Internalize it.

It makes the narrow minded angry Tea Party look foolish.

Stand up and demand change. Now!

You got your change. He's called Barack Hussein Obama. Now if you don't mind, please get yourselves cleaned up (you know, it's called a shower), put on a different set of clothe's, leave my pocketbook alone, and go find yourselves a job. Maybe if you earned your own living, you wouldn't be angry at those of us that already do.

We can't have an intelligent conversation as long as you ignore facts and remain in your bubble. Read the following, and then let's talk.

(1) First must-read: “The Price of Civilization: Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity” Written by Dr. Jeffrey D. Sachs
