Thread: A 3 minute clip that shows what we must do.
[-] 1 points by grapes (4599) 5 hours ago

The gun-control issue does not need a federal nationwide single legal regulation. The Second Amendment has already set the foundation on the federal level. It's just another issue that really belongs to under the rim of our toilet bowls as do the security cameras needed there to monitor the toilet/genitalia compliance of our toilet-using population.

In some areas, gun control is a great idea. In others, not so much. Have you ever noticed that our police carry guns but the Bobbies of the U.K. do not? Here're the reasons why. Do you wonder why our women don't need to wear hijabs and niqabs but Islamic fundamentalist countries absolutely require that? Read about the rapes and sexual assaults on German women in Cologne on 2015-12-31. Why?

It's cultural clash. I thought nothing of walking around stark naked in a shower room but in some cultures it is an absolutely abominable behavior. Well, in some ways, I was prudish, too, when the topic of streaking came up with two young women. I blushed.

seems you spend too much time watching late night comedians and not enough educating yourself on fiat currency. or maybe you think hearing john oliver talk about currency creation is educational. i do not!

one of the main issues facing the country in many areas is "we don't have the money." just read the great paul volker today in the ny times - no money for medicare or social security or teachers or pensions. plenty for banks and wars though no? jill is essentially correct - we can print all the money we need to create a healthy population and economy - as one investor (on the business channel no less - bloomberg!) said - "we should have the fed cut a check to the treasury for $1 trillion and spend half on infrastructure and the other half spread it among the population, that would end the economic malaise" good idea no? who would need to be paid back in that situation - the fed - well where did they get the money - they hit a key stroke no?

it is an extremely important and very poorly understood issue. government debt is not like business or household debt. when i borrow from the bank i do not have a printing press in the basement. michael hudson is one of the best on this issue - along with stephanie kelton. google their talk in italy and you will learn a lot. for starters here he is - http://michael-hudson.com/2011/06/how-a-13-trillion-cover-story-was-written/

The Hag is unfit for the post of the Commander-in-Chief due to her terrible judgment about broadcasting top-secret nuclear-response information worldwide. She can get most of us murdered for her political gain.

All things with time, Trump provides an opportunity to shatter one of the two great powers, have you heard how to eat an elephant? (one bite at a time)

If America moves in great numbers, for whatever reason each individual votes, if the effect is to dismember one of the two political parties then the unraveling can begin.

I have always held this is the way but to give power to the GOP as a means to achieve it, as many would do, is self-defeating.

To destroy the GOP it must split and we must not, we must stand behind the best option we have, and while far from perfect, yes wealth inequality will grow under her, but when do you see people beside myself talk about that even here?

We see it happening already with the wikileaks/Russian releases as the Dems grow they will split or change, Bernie has infected the mainstream and from within by taking over, that will be our shortest path, but even if the Dems split too either way the GOP must be killed first, as it has always been.

Pictures and videos take up a lot of storage space (bits bites megabytes) you might want to look into an external storage for new or old recordings - transfer stuff over to free up space.

Remove all of the cached data - they can be rebuilt over time. Use image compression algorithms. If all else failed, restore to factory reset setting after saving all desired information. The N.S.A. can infect BIOS so if you have an auto-immune problem in your computer, a hardware replacement for the PROM chip may be needed. If you truly need more hard-disc space, a disc upgrade is warranted but it is expensive. Saving data and programs to CDs/DVDs/cloud storage is often cheaper.

Use msconfig to mount programs one by one or bunch by bunch on startup to determine which one/ones caused the problem. Before doing this, make sure that all internet connections wired or wireless to the outside world have been disconnected.

Here's HRC's Goldman Sachs Private Paid Speeches:

I'm so furious at Deutsche Bank and Angela Merkel like I can't even articulate right now! She is currently back door bailing out DB now, while both are sucking the life out of Greece!! The hypocrisy and extent of moral hazard is indescribable!!! Thanx for the excellent excerpt .. in compliment of which, I'll append this from Yanis Varoufakis - which is a real shot in the arm and bolster if and when feeling a politically down:

per aspera ad astra ...

Well .. ''if Americans are so stupid they don't see that'' - Oligarchy's Ultimatum between a Crooked Liar and a Lying Crook is a HUGE joke at the 99%'s expense, then - wtf is there to say?! But hold on there!

You seem to want to blame OWS for something. I do not agree with you but right now - I feel the same about Bernie Sanders, so I get what animates you! I'll end by recommending this very recent BBC doc. about this election and I really think this will interest you:

The National Prison Strike in USA is grossly under-reported & in a way - your important HuffPo link shows why. Prison Slave Labour is apparently sanctioned by the 13th Amendment but its probably unintended consequence - is the perpetuation of slavery for profit of The Rich & Corporations! + fyi:

fiat lux ...

Here's a rather pompous yet sometime insightful very recent BBC documentary re. Donald J. tRUMP ...

I get what you say and I found Sarah Smarsh's article illuminating. The US working class (really almost all The 99%, imo) need to take Eugene Debbs words to mind and heart - per the tweet above.

Finally, I will end by quoting tRUMP's book ''The Art Of The Deal'' (via the doc. above - because I've never read it!), ''Controversy sells. The way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. A little hyperbole never hurts. My time will come.''Trump is a narcissist loon.Says something about her that he has a shot!

spero meliora ...

''With their hearts they turned to each other's heart for refuge; In the troubled years that came before the deluge ...'' - is a nice line from that Jackson Browne song and that somehow felt apt on this thread & Dr. Jill Stein OP - where I'm appending this item for reflection ...

Sounds like you need to run a computer maintenance program? Clear out temp files and such? Or delete some saved programs to free up space on your hard-drive or expand your hard-drive?

That's why we need you, factsrfun. To set the record straight.

In the end, neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump are going to depose the corporate wankers that are running this country.

So this "let the chips fall where they may" was just posturing?

I think words matter.

It is one thing to say I live in a solid "red" or "blue" state and I want to send a message with my vote, it is another to bemoan the Constitution and the formation of political parties, BTW I oppose a Constitutional Convention as I believe the rich would take it over and make things much worse, but there is a path we could take this system down but like with so many things we must set aside our egos to do it.

Makes too much sense. Why would anyone here on this Occupy website support a Wall Street Crony like the Hag anyway?

Ever think we here do not want the DNC to change things because we do not share their corrupted view of the world. America does need a one party rule. Two party rule is already bad enough.

So how much is the DNC paying you to blog for the Hag?

True and good point. The media falls into the category of "corporations" since they are wholly owned by such. And, yes, lol, many who vote Republican want their "entitlements" lol, they just have very little understanding, sadly, of how those programs came about and why their government provides them in the first place.

It kind of comes down to society vs. the individual. The individual wants his or her "rights" and is obsessed with "freedom" but, ultimately, almost always want to live in a society yet many don't realize this.

i would add here that they are misinformed by the corporate media. it is not an accident that they blame immigrants and government. "keep the governments hands off my medicare" says it all no?
