I'm not sure it matters. I've come to see the entire occupy movement as designed to point out problems but do very little to actually engage in fixing them. The message has been heard some people care some don't.

I think it was the violence that turned a lot of people away not to mention that a lot of "far left" members were also very arrogant. I see that in this forum also

What does this propaganda have to do with the great issues at hand? Absolutely nothing. Don't worry, OWS will raise some more cash. Today, the movement is all over the country protesting Citizen's United on it's one year anniversary. What are you doing to make the country better, muddFlapp?

How can they be protesting on their "one year anniversary" when it did not start until Sept 17, 2011???

Money was never the object in the first place. We started without it and will continue without it.

[-] 1 points by RedJazz43 (2757) 2 years ago

OWS didn't have a cent on the day it started and it is more capable than any other movement of "living off the land." What it needs is more people, more occupations, more GAs. It will get what money it needs. As Big Bill Haywood said, "the treasury of the revolution is in the pockets of the working class."

[-] -2 points by muddFlapp (-108) 2 years ago

I always heard that OWS was more less like a fad then a movement??

[-] 1 points by RedJazz43 (2757) 2 years ago

"Always" is not exactly an appropriate adverb to apply to a phenomenon which is only weeks old. If it disappears in a year or less, then it might appropriately be characterized as a fad, though I think that unlikely as the issues it is addressing are more systemic than cyclical and unlikely themselves to disappear any time soon, at least not without the intervention of a movement something like OWS, though considerably larger,

I think it's important this web site stay up. It gives people an unfettered view of the hard left; the hatred, the lies, the incredible double standards. People come for information and get apparatchiks spreading the Marxist gospel sprinkled heavily with conspiracy nuts who see one behind every blade of grass. College students whining about the fact that they took out loans and don't want to to pay them back. This is full spectrum liberalism on display!

I love this place! :)

They also see the callousness and nastiness of the fear mongering, right wing reactionaries who refuse to admit that our economy is not working for the majority of people and that our government has been turned into a plutocracy.

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

Perfect! It isn't hard to see who is nasty and callous, who are fear mongers and who are reactionaries. Our economy does work for a majority of our citizens and will work for even more when the Democrats are banished to the wilderness in November. :)

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

Do you read? Do you watch the news? You are poorly informed. 1 in 7 on food stamps. One-half of all Americans earning less than $26,000 per year. 22% of American children living in poverty. Declining wages. 49 million with no health insurance. Millions of foreclosures. High unemployment. Right. You must be right. It's working great.

Go ahead, try to blame Obama. That's ridiculous. When he took office the nation was already bleeding millions of jobs a month. The recession was in full swing.

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

Of course I can blame it on Obama. The only people he's helped are unions, private and public. He stole Chrysler form the bondholders and gave it to the unions. He stopped GM from reorganizing under Chapter 11 which would have allowed renegotiating union contracts and made the unions equity holders in the new company.

If you could remove your ideological blinders for a moment you would notice the trillion dollar porkulous benefited public sector unions and his green energy scams. Obama has spent more than every president in history and he wants yet another trillion. Apparently, you lefties simply can't get your heads around just how much more a trillion is than a simple billion.

Where does this monstrous pile of cash go?

Obama has done nothing to help the private sector, how do you think American business feels when you have the dipshits at the NLRB costing Boeing a billion dollars by trying to keep them from moving to a right to work state and costing the economy thousands of jobs in the process? He has singlehandledly destroyed the oil economy of the gulf coast, hundreds of rigs have permanently relocated to other, friendlier parts of the world because Obama is a job killing machine. The EPA has issued over 4000 regulations since Obama became destroyer in chief, not one of those regulations helps our economy.

These are some hard facts, not meaningless statistics pulled out of some bureaucrats ass.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

We do have fundamental differences in our worldviews, that is for sure. One could argue that Bush spent more with his tax cuts and the wars he waged and that Obama simply inherited a huge mess with the greatest recession since the Depression in full swing when he took office.

I don't know. I kind of think BP destroyed the oil economy of the gulf coast. And, I bet many of those regulations are fall out from the BP disaster. So who's to blame, greedy big business, doing things on the cheap and causing great harm to our environment or Obama for trying to make sure we still have an environment down the road?

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

That's what I'm trying to get across, the enormity of Obama's spending. Obama's deficit for Feb.'11 was more than the deficit for the entire entire year of 2007, war spending included. I'll repeat, Obama has spent more than ALL other presidents and isn't through yet.

BP manned up and did what they said they would do, Obama halted drilling and never rescinded the order even though he was required to by statute. The loss of the rigs from the gulf has set our economy back 20 years. Thousands upon thousands of jobs gone.

If your goal is the destruction of the American economy, then Obama is your man.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

Yes, he's spent a lot, but many say that if you reversed the Bush tax cuts and never had the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, we'd be in pretty good shape. Hindsight is 20 20. I didn't like the bailouts either, but where would we be without the stimulus? I don't know. We've not faced this kind of economic crisis since the Depression.

Why would I have to counter argue where there is no argument.

Do you read? What the NYT? Do you watch news? What, msnbc? Obama needed stimulus passed immediately to keep unemployment under 8%! he needed healthcare reform passed immediately to save our healthcare system. That shithead destroyed it. Wait and watch. The big eared fuck didn't have the guts to implement the majority of change until after 2012 elections. The congress didn't even read the fucked up bill. Bitch face Pelosi said, " ehhh we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it". Stupid liberal ass bitch.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

Not one economist knew how to handle the recession. I'm not saying I agree with everything Obama has done, but no one knew what to do. Hindsight is 20 20. I don't particularly like his health plan myself. In my mind, we need basic universal healthcare for everyone that covers only catastrophic care. We need insurance, not a reimbursement plan.

However, the republicans have been absolutely intransigent. They have been doing everything they can to satisfy Grover Norquist and to keep the unemplyment rate high in hopes of ousting Obama. What's up with that?

[-] -1 points by Kirby (104) 2 years ago

Now let's not slip into conspiracy theories. I know it is difficult, but just try to maintain. To your first point, not one bailout, not one for any corporation should have been doled out at taxpayer expense. This is what has dragged our economy down, along with this incessant adventuring in foreign wars, perpetrated by Bush and continuing with the big eared Boss.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

I'll agree with you. How's that? I was against the bailouts and still think they were a bad idea. I don't, however, think they were all Obama's idea. Weren't they already in motion when he took office?

And, could you stop calling him "the big eared Boss." I mean, geez, it is hard to take you guys seriously with that kind of talk.

[-] -1 points by Kirby (104) 2 years ago

Forgive me beautifulworld, but I'm in a bad mood. I will try to refrain from calling president Obama names. I appreciate that we can agree on some issues. Yes Bush 43 came up with the TARP idea, fully supported by bi... I mean senator Obama. Very bad ideas, I believe. Now we are sitting over three years into Obamas term, with 6 more trillion in unpaid bills. When does this shit get the brakes put on it?

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (21572) 2 years ago

You're forgiven. I don't know what to do about the debt (tax the rich, end corporate loopholes, end the wars?, lol !), but, I do know that a lot of Americans are hurting right now, while the few at the top are benefiting in an extreme way because of how the economy is set up.

[-] -1 points by Kirby (104) 2 years ago

This government has pushed us so close to the brink with this reckless approach to spending, military conflicts and what have you, taxing the "rich" is only a spit in the ocean. Austerity has to happen. Minnesota shut the government down because an 8% increase in spending wasn't enough for governor Dayton. It's really sad.

This beautifulworld is looking very gloomy. We are on the brink. Have you ever read any of Richard Rhodes books? He won the Pulitzer in 1986 for, "The Making Of The Atomic Bomb". He followed it up with, "Dark Sun: The Making Of The Hydrogen Bomb" in 1996. He has since followed these with two more, in the series, which I have not read yet. The final book of the four part series was published in 2010 and it is supposed to be the best. He is an absolute master researcher, and when the soviet union dissolved he got into the kremlins declassified archives. I know this is off topic, but his writing is really mind blowing.

The system is flawed and the economy will probably fall. I suggest you stop pointing the fingers at OWS mistakes and ask them why they are doing this. You guys keep talking about right and left when all that matters is humanity. Capitalism and the monetary system will not work anymore. Obama will more the likely be re elected because Mitt Romney is a product of what we do not want. He wont even show his tax returns to the American people. People have this chip on there shoulder like no one matters but them and what they worked for... What have you really gained? Some paper with faces on it? some nice car that destroys our environment? A whole bunch of electronics that make our power company's pump out large amounts of carbon emissions? ALL for what? At what point will everyone start to care that they are destroying everyone and everything around them. At what point will we stop saying fuck everyone else, I am going to become rich?
