Newbies, misinformed, unicorn chasers and false-flag whiners:

DO you REALIZE that our first black POTUS can't wave a wand and reverse all our 1% tyranny woes?

Do you REALIZE that the 1% owns the GOP and so they do all they can to oblige their masters and block and sabotage Dems every way they can?

Do you REALIZE that we would have Single Payer Healthcare, higher minimum wage, closed GITMO, intact Voters Rights Act, Reversal of Citizens United, higher pollution regulations, and the reversal of too many Bush and Raygun retrogressions to list here, if it wasn't for Republicon obstruction and sabotage? AND the pouting instead of Voting of some duped Dems in the last midterm election in 2010?

We all make stupid and painful mistakes.

REALIZE LEARNING FROM MISTAKES: Vote in this midterm election in 2014!!

Do you realize that signing something doesnt mean sabotage, it means complicity?

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

They've been trying to cut off Head Start since it started.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

They were against: Head Start, Obama Care, Medicare, NASA, Civil Rights, AMTRAK, Social Security, Women vote, Black vote, Public Education, ending slavery, democracy and Revolution!!!!

What do you expect?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Libe(R)topia, under the guise of duopoly.

and if they don't pull their heads out of their asses on global warming?

All bets are off.

and who's been fighting against doing anything??

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Elysium and 1984 are more real than we want to believe.

False Flag critics and suck ups are in the majority of posters and repliers.

At the same time MSM is finding OWS more easy to mention... interesting.

Question: Has Glenn Greenwald ever addressed the Amazon????

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Life isn't a movie.

What MSM has been mentioning OWS?

I haven't heard a thing lately, although I don't watch TV news.

Bezo's amazon?

they're still cutting the real one down.

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Art/Life, Life/Art, it's mixed up. 1984 is in effect now (see Mike Malloy), Elysium Elite as we mere prolls exist in hell, is not that unreal.

Imagine.

Chevron, Texaco, and China's soy bean Amazon!!!! Where is resident Greewald on that???

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

Art, imitates life, but it's still just a caricature.

Greenwald aside.

What are you talking about in the Amazon?

Got a link?

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Art becomes life, as in 1984.

The rampant destruction of one of Earth's most vital resources, in multiple ways? You just referred to it. It's real!!!! NOT art!!

The links are endless. Google! (I should not have to present these, except I'm working on this topic.)

Big Oil, Ag, ... etc!

MILLIONS MORE, but where is Greenwald????? He's fucking lived there for years!!!

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

LOL

Cargill is involved. Good luck stopping them.

They're more evil that Koch industries. Richer too.

Cargill, Bain, Cerbus, Koch, etc. are WallStreet's hit men.

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

It's a real multinational gang bang. What's going on there dwarfs most of the issues we occupy ourselves with yet despite it's enormous size and ramifications it's mostly an unknown secret. Publicity is our friend and their enemy. SO, Hello investigative reporters living it up in Rio, publicizing tabloid US controversies while ignoring crucial global atrocities in their own backyard!!

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Ever notice how no one ever mentions the incredible increase in global warming and other pollutants that are put out in "war theaters"?

It's like war gets a free pass, on that account.

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

The US Military Industrial Complex is one of the worst single polluters in the world, if not the worst.

We all know how great it is to have tons of lead completely saturating places where people live, so weapons grade uranium has to be WAY better. Toss in gas, oil and nuke guzzling and spewing ships, subs, tanks, planes, jets and Rumsfeld, and you have a source of pollution large and toxic enough to permanently kill the entire state of Texass annually, every year the MIC operates.

FYI: (for newbies and misinformed) Obama did NOT invent war, weapons, death, military, lead, drones, pollution, uranium or RepubliCon sabotage. Nor can Obama wave a Unicorn wand to end any of those things, but Unicorns can.

In a very real way, the MIC has become a branch of Gov. unto itself.

We were warned.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1634) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Branch and conveyor belt to redistribute our wealth to the 1% of the 1%! That's how this disastrous and bogus "war on terror" was a phenomenal success!

Is it Thom Hartman, Norman Goldman or Randi Rhodes who includes Congress in the MIC label?

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

Originally, it was Eisenhower.

He included them in the original draft of his famous speech.

He took them out in the rewrite.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I don't know about that.

I asked if they could apply this thinking to the teabagge(R)y happening in Michigan.

I was attacked instead.

There was no answer given. Indeed the article itself was edited, and teabagge(R)y continues to do damage in multiples of States..

You're just odd.

Disruptive, unhelpful and odd.

They heard it on the AM radio, or in church.

Then again, one should ask what's the level of FLAKESnews saturation in the State?

No ever asks these important questions.

You should watch less crap.

Watching crap is bad for your soul.

Nope.

I didn't.

You should watch less crap.

This would be funny too.........if it wasn't real.

all of these disgusting anti-99% moves MUST be used by every progressive group to register voters

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

Let's hope the Dems can make the loophole stick.

GOPs will be hollering!!

[-] 0 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 1 year ago

If the sequester is so devastating, then why does no one speak of the 1 TRILLION in bailouts since November? One month of that is equal to the exact amount of the sequester.

Better to focus on the sequester than the 1 TRILLION in bailouts for Wall St since November 2012 I guess.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

"1 TRILLION in bailouts for Wall St "
MSNBC has repeatedly reported on bank bailouts

[-] 1 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 1 year ago

MSNBC doesnt say shit about the 85 billion a month they are robbing from us. None of them do. And if they do, they act like its just something thats the usual.

85 billion a month is such an astronomically high number that I think people cant even get their heads around it.

[-] 2 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

of course you know the deficit is now 4% of GNP - the lowest it has been in a long time
Does alec & david & charlie like the $85B that is supporting our economy because the rich pay so little? I think we should go back to Ike's rates to fund medical care & jobs

[-] -1 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 1 year ago

85 Billion a month to the banks.

1 Trillion a year to the war machine.

We seem to be fine with this as a nation. Whats that say about us?

If you haven't forgoten it was Obama who wanted the "sequester". And why couldn't money be "diverted" to stop this from happening.

I guess Obama wants to send a message - I don't give a shit about 57,000 children from head start.

Do you have a TROLL problem?

here are some of its “tells”
► it attacks the poster - not the post
► it "re-interprets" the post rather than quoting it ( ala faux noose )
► it uses a gross generalization to “prove” a specific
► it uses the “big lie” [ often obviously ]
► it changes the subject
► it uses mccarthyite accusations
► it’s post is negative & offers no positive solutions
► it is afraid to answer questions


to solve your TROLL problem you could buy a mongoose or a roach motel,
but there is a better way:

……………………………………….MY TROLL solution ►
……………………………………….IGNORE ANY POSTS FROM THE TROLL
