Here’s what we hear from the parrots that insist on beating the same old dead horse:
“Get a job!
Major in something useful!
Work 3 jobs while going to college!
Go live in Cuba if you don’t like it here!
Pooping on police cars!
Dirty hippies! Socialists! Commies!”
Calico Blackie says:
Gads! Can’t they do better than just parroting what they hear from Hannity, Coulter, O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and the other paid shills at Fox “News”?
Unfortunately, most of these people that eat fox crap are likely to be lifelong delusionals. Even if they themselves experience hardship, they will find ways to rationalize their beliefs that whatever happens to other people is other people’s fault, and you should never feel compassionate.
That, after all, is a sign of weakness.
These are the kind of people who, if they end up homeless, steal from the other homeless. The violent drunks. The ones who rob octogenarian women.
And then boast about their victims being stupid for being in a dangerous neighborhood and in their presence.
It’s not easy to ‘fix’ these people, because you’d have to fix society.
Take away incentives to cheat, lie and be egotistical.
Praise intellectualism over materialism.
Speaking of “fixing” people…………
Hey, the above photo is from that “costume party” held the other night by a big foreclosure firm in New York.
The theme was “dress up as a person you have put out of their homes.”
Just imagine if these people worked in a hospital!
Every Halloween they could be cancer kids with shaved heads and signs that say things like”
“I just want to live.”
“Why won’t baby Jesus save me?”
Talk about “rotflmao”!!!
Remember this face when she gets laid off and finds herself homeless. Be sure to tell the cops where she’s meeting her “johns”.
The wealthy and powerful can’t believe a revolution can happen here in America.
They just plain can’t believe it.
After all……… This is the USA, not France or Russia.
The idea of the mobs actually rising up against the powerful is something they think just plain can’t happen.
They’ll assume people might get grumpy, but they’ll go back to watching Dancing with the Stars and gossiping about Snooki and Paris Hilton, they’ll eat at McDonalds and play the lottery thinking this is the ticket that’ll make them rich so everything will be A-OK soon.
They’ll feed us better and more lurid meaningless news stories about the “disease du jour” or the crazy murder on the loose in some far-away country.
Somebody famous will have their phone hacked.
It’s worked for many decades just fine, and they aren’t in a hurry to question it.
They aren’t trying to avoid pissing off the public, because they just don’t care.
Wall Street and their wholly owned subsidiary in Washington DC doesn’t give a damn what any of us think.
They don’t care about their public image, so they’re doing this just because they can.
Why don’t they care? Why do they “look down their noses” at the 99%?
Because it’s always “idiots who took out loans they couldn’t afford,” never “hard-working families with good careers who took out a loan they could afford and then had an unanticipated layoff due to Wall Street playing fast and loose with the economy and the house they bought for $150,000 they now can’t sell for $50,000.”
They were willing to trust their government and financial institutions.
And were eventually left to become poor for the benefit of the 1%.
Want to know why the current protestors exist?
“They were willing to trust their government and financial institutions”, and were left to drown in the results.
American financier Jay Gould, after hiring strikebreakers, said: “I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half.”
Calico Blackie says:
Sad but true.
Just look at the police departments around the country who are willing to gas and rubber bullet citizens for exercising their Constitutional rights.
So……… What else is new?
Occupy Movement Scores Huge Victory in Cleveland After Seeking a Federal Injunction Eliminating Curfew
“Last Friday night, members of the group Occupy Cleveland, which have been demonstrating on Public Square in downtown Cleveland since early October, were told that they must vacate the premises as the permit they had been granted by the city expired at 10pm. Without a permit, city law prohibits camping out between the hours of 10pm and 5am.”
“Several arrests were made, all while the demonstrators peacefully explained that they were expressing their 1st amendment rights to free speech and peaceful assembly.”
“On Wednesday, the group scored huge victory when a federal judge issued an injunction that would allow them to occupy the Tom Johnson quadrant of Public Square at all hours of the day for an indefinite period of time.”
Occupy Veterans Movement Growing across U.S
By KRISTINA WONG
Oct. 31, 2011
“Since Occupy Wall Street protests have broken out in cities across the U.S. and abroad, support has come from what might seem like an unlikely corner: war veterans.”
From CBS News:
Police Erase Occupy Richmond Tent Site
“Police cleared out a public park in downtown Richmond where members of Occupy Richmond have camped since October 15. About a dozen protesters were arrested.”
“WTVR reports that police on foot and on horseback told Occupy Richmond demonstrators to leave Kanawha Plaza by 1:00 a.m. Monday morning, and less than an hour later went into the park and arrested those who refused to leave.”
“About a dozen who stayed were arrested for trespassing, police spokesman Gene Lepley said.”
“Some members of the protest are standing nearby saying they will return. “Whether it be Kanahwa Plaza, whether it be on VCU’s campus, whether it be on the sidewalks where we are now,” one protester told WTVR.”
“Occupy doesn’t have to be in a set location. The location of this doesn’t matter; it’s all in the heart.”
Jay Gould must be smiling up from hell right now.
From FOX “news”:
“United Nations cultural agency UNESCO, in test vote of recognition, grants full membership to Palestinians over threat of defunding by U.S.”
An important story, but they’re still ignoring the 99% in hopes that we will go away.
Anybody notice this?
Brokerage Firm MF Global Files for Bankruptcy
By msnbc.com news services
“Troubled brokerage MF Global Holdings, led by former New Jersey Governor John Corzine, filed for bankruptcy protection Monday, according to news reports.”
“MF Global is a primary dealer, meaning it can do business directly with the Federal Reserve System.”
Calico Blackie says:
Looks like those dirty hippie Socialist bankers are going to be asking for another free handout soon at our expense!
I read this today:
“Seriously people…grow up, get a job, and stop complaining about the success other people have achieved. You obviously need a lesson in how to work hard and make something out of your life instead of looking towards the government for your salvation. If you think that a socialist society is so much better than the capitalistic society you abuse, then go live in Cuba!”
Saw this reply:
“I love that you are happy loaning money to corporations from your taxes so they can give themselves bonuses after having mismanaged their company and then bet against your 401k and make another bundle off of your hard work. Congrats!”
Occupy HAS to succeed. RIGHT NOW while we’re still at the peaceful protest stage.
Maybe things just aren’t bad enough yet.
Or those who have hit bottom haven’t lost all hope. But if things don’t change soon critical mass will be achieved.
Just the right event will trigger the spark that ignites the prairie fire and then it will spread fast.
What we see on the television in those “other” countries will happen here. Only this population has a lot of guns in circulation. That’s why there’s been a huge push for gun control here.
Stay non-violent! Don’t play their game!
OCCUPY WALL STREET
“So that a government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth”
We are the 99%
