Michelle Bachman. Rick Santorum.

what are you doing on this site? Who is paying you?

If this movement is so unimportant, why are you laying in wait to answer posts such as these?

[-] -1 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

I am the 99% you asked a question and I gave an honest answer.

[-] 1 points by burningman2012 (187) 3 years ago

you are the 1%

[-] -1 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

Unfortunately no, you are mistaken. I am around the 40th percentile. I don't mind. I am content with my income, and have all I need in food clothing and shelter.

[-] 2 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

No you are mistaken. What part of THEY WANT IT ALL don't you understand?

First they steal from the poorest, then they are coming for your money.

Just like everyone else, every day you are paying triple the cost for food and gas then you should be...because Goldman Sachs and Koch are gaming our commodities driving the prices sky high just for their own benefit. Will you still be able to afford bread at $8 per loaf and gas at $6 per gallon?

Every year health insurance goes up 30%...are you still going to be okay when your health care is 3,000 per month? Have you ever actually had to use the medical system only to find out your insurance covers very little? Did you know that most bankruptcies in this nation are medical costs and those are people with insurance?

You live in a little bubble, but you are not as protected by your money as you think you are. You see, the rest of us are now broke and bankrupt....and the greedy hoarders are looking around wondering 'who else has money?' .....they are COMING FOR YOU next!

You are a seriously sick mind. Very paranoid and full of fear. Get a grip dude. Get out of your little fantasy that you and your gang of anarchists are going to topple the world and build utopia on the heap of rubble. I am just as happy in life when I can fit all of my belongings in the back of a pickup, or if I have a home with a garage and a new car. You place way too much meaning on materialism. Even when a man has an abundance, his life does not consist of his possessions.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

"You place way too much meaning on materialism."

You have me confused with the 1%

I am fine, but I don't just care about myself. I fight for the elderly people who have had their homes stolen through illegal robosigning, people who lost everything in bankruptcy because their insurance co-pays were so high, people who have had their retirement stolen by criminal bankers on wall street, people who every day are starving because hoarders like Goldman Sachs need even more money so they gamble on our commodities.

Now I really think you should read this poem and THINK!

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Was this person just paranoid and full of fear?

[-] 1 points by BlueRose (1437) 3 years ago

First they came for the debtors, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a debtor.

Then they came for the Muslims , and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Muslim.

Then they came for the Occupy Wall Street protesters , and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a protester.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I like the poem Fu. I feel that we may be headed for a repeat of what happened in the 30's. Global depression, high unemployment, massive leverage in the financial sector, huge speculations in commodities, volatility in the markets, and lack of confidence in governments abilities to set a course. Enter Adolph( the one with the stupid mustache, not the meat tenderizer). Why were the German people so blind to what him and his henchmen were up to? Why did we not get involved until we were attacked by the Japanese, excepting lend-lease? How could Germans living next to extermination camps not know? How can a man, go to work exterminating human beings and go home and make love to his wife? You are right, we need to speak out on these issue. The argument now, as in 1940, is why should we involve ourselves in these conflicts? The National council of churches( I think it was them) were pacifiists, even as Europe was burning. You said earlier Iran has no nuclear program. Really. The news earlier this year of a computer hack that sent 1000 centrifuges into overdrive, burning them up, was a lie? Perhaps it was. Who can trust the news sources.

yeah you are one of those why change the system everything is going fine for me types choke on it

I just don't believe in the brain washed rhetoric you adhere to. You blame the 1% for everything wrong in your life. I don't. I blame the federal government for much of the problems. They pass the laws. They choose to piss on our constitution. They choose to enslave us by the passing of illegitimate laws. Hell, Obama decides which laws he wants enforced or not. So I don't blame the 1%, I blame government. The so called 1%, that you disdain, may be greedy and drunk with wealth. I blame them not. I blame the the law passers, the greedy likes of congress that legally participate in insider trading. The tax cheaters like Tim Geithner, Al Franken, Tom Daschle and Former presidential candidate Al Sharpton. These are all democrats, who cheerlead for the poor, so they can stay in power. Their are just as many repubicans cheating I am sure, but these names disgust me because they cheat like hell and yet claim to be champions for the middle class.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

If you are not brainwashed...how can you support hypocrites like Bachman whose husband takes money from medicare to convert people who are Gay. And Newt Gingrich who claims to support family values, or Rick Perry who was caught double dipping...

Unbeknownst to most Texans, Gov. Rick Perry officially retired in January so he could draw early pension benefits worth $7,699 a month, in addition to his annual governor’s salary of $150,000. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2011/12/17/MNHH1MDUCV.DTL

I listen to Limbaugh and Glenn Beck so maybe you can help me understand....how can they keep complaining about the debt and big government when the Republican party created BIG GOVERNMENT Homeland Security and the TSA who are clearly wasting all kinds of money violating our Constitutional rights?

How can they blame the debt on welfare when it is a tiny percentage of government spending particularly when compared to the illegal immoral wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?

How can they continue to blame Social Security for the deficit when Social Security is separately funded and they have actually been stealing from the trust fund for their wars and tax cuts.

I just assumed anyone who believe their BS was brainwashed...but since you are not, please explain this overt hypocrisy and how anyone could have respect for these people much less support their 'ideas'

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

I don't believe in big government, whether dems or Repubs. You speak of hypocrisy. Their is plenty of hypocrisy to go around. Pelosi and her insider trading. Daschle and his tax cheating. We can go on and on about hypocrisy. Al sharpton cheating on taxes. Geithner. Obama and his racist Pastor.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

C'mon, you said you want a discussion.

Please explain how Bachman can blame the poor for the debt, but be pushing a new war in Iran even after their claims of WMDs were proven to be patently absurd even before the war? Have they no shame? How can they pretend to be people of God, when rule #1 is THOU SHALL NOT KILL?

You have not proven yourself to be a thinking individual and yet you said you are not brainwashed and here for discussion. Just answer one of my questions without a pre written quip from some talking head.

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

Who has proven it to be patently absurd? Should a monster be allowed to produce these weapons, going unopposed? I always wondered why Obama would not support the Iranian people during the phony elections yet he was more than happy to kill Ghadaffy. Why? He supports Ahmadinejad, but supported the murder of Ghadaffy. It makes no sense. Perhaps we are headed for wwIII and we cannot stop it. Bachman supports limited federal government, as do I. I have no idea why you say she blames the poor for the debt. Clearly the debt is from massive programs, that congress kicks funding for down the road. Do you not see that?

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

The run up to the war in Iraq, remember all the lies? The forged 'evidence' that was so laughable the UN found it to be a fraud within 5 minutes using Google. The US caught spying on the UN in an attempt to buy votes. And Oh Saddam is going to get us with UAVs....when Iraq doesn't even have an air force. Saddam's gonna get us with a bunker buster in the back yard, pretending he was responsible for 9/11...

Oh you mean you believed the lies from the corporate media....here's a hint, they are still lying now. There were no weapons, there was never any threat from Iraq and they knew that....and now it's the same thing again with Iran.

Weapons Inspectors were in Iraq, finding nothing, so Bush chased them out of the country the day before 'shock and awe' then he went on to say 'He(Saddam) wouldn't let the inspectors in"....Did you believe Bush then?

Now Iran is a threat? You believe that crap?

Have you ever seen the PNAC plan for world domination? You probably would call be paranoid for that too, but these bastards put up their plan for a pearl harbor type event to kick off their takeover of the middle east on a website. They are that arrogant.

I wonder, Does Bachman talk about PNAC? Do you really think that she knows better than the inspectors and professionals that say Iran is not a threat? She thought the founding fathers ended slavery, I really don't think you should look to her for facts.

Yesterday there was a story about Bachman claiming Hezbollah is putting nukes in Cuba. Do you believe that too?

At what point does their bullshit fear mongering bullshit finally make you start to think ??

Well let me know...

and the 1% controls the politicians all of them for the most part don't be brain washed. i didn't need OWS to come along and wake me up i have known all these things for years and it is heartening to see that others are now becoming aware. don't be mad when we win

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

If the so called 1% control the politicians, the politicians are at fault. They have the power to do what is right, or wrong. If a politician is on the take, which many clearly are, it is the politician that is to blame because they cast a vote, or draw up legislation. Lawmakers who are corrupt is the worst sort of evil.

[-] 0 points by burningman2012 (187) 3 years ago

and by the way most politicians are 1% as well

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

Correct. If a politician comes into office with a limited bank account, they always leave with a truckload full of cash. How do they do it? Bribery, that is how. Incredible unchecked corruption. Remember ABSCAM?

or they are already wealthy see mitt romney

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

That does not disturb me as much as a public servant making perhaps 170,000 per year, spending years in congress and leaving a multiple millionaire.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

no one with common sense would follow those two for information, so there is no way in hell you are a real thinking human being who supports this movement.

Now it begs the question, do you really think that the 1% will pay and protect you forever?

They want it all, all the power, all the money...and as soon as they screw the rest of us over, you will be next on their list. They have no loyalty. You are nothing to them.

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

Why would you ask such an illogical question? Pay and protect, forever? Who is paying and protecting me?

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

If you are not working for the top 1% to say stupid stuff on this board....why in the world are you here...seriously?

You expect us to believe you are here for discussion?

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

I've had many great discussions on this site. Are you open only to discussion with people aligned with your ideology 100%?

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 3 years ago

No Michelle Bachman fan is actually open minded and interested in discussion....there is no way in hell you are here to listen to others and have a discussion.

Please point me toward the great discussions, or explain to me what you have learned here.

I am not really here to discuss issues with Bachman fans, who clearly have no grasp on reality.

I am here to find other Occupiers and discuss ideas for being successful. You and your people are here to disrupt which is apparent to everyone, and there are obviously a whole hell of a lot more of you than real protesters at this point because you all ruined the board. You probably all get paid by Homeland Security meanwhile pretending you are for small government and care about the national debt. Hypocrites, sadistic devil worshipers or both.

Do you feel proud? Do you really think all your money will buy back your soul?

[-] 0 points by Farleymowat (415) 3 years ago

You must be getting paid to be a comedian. You try out for Saturday night live and follow in the steps of your rich pal, Al Franken. Or do you disdain him too? You are the one who has no grasp on reality.
