    Photo of the Day – Those Tolerant Non Violent Leftist Protesters Edition 

    Ah, the May Day celebrations were in full swing in Seattle yesterday.  I wish the Tea Party Protests were this non violent.

    One wonders if they understand when they do these type of things that they actually cost the “little guy” money in additional costs to cover the fees that replacing windows incur?  Do they think that insurance premiums aren’t passed onto the consumer?

    may day

    Quote of the Day – Ricky Torres Edition 

    “We want to make sure everyone is here for the right reason,” said Ricky Torres, 23, who is part of the security unit. “Some are homeless and people who are not really up to any good.”

    Protest Organizers who are complaining of the growing group. 

     Many of the newcomers to the tent city are attracted by the donated freebies: pizza, sandwiches, fruit, as well as bins of sweaters, pants, boots, even underwear. There are also handout comforters for anyone who wants 40 winks.

    And with complimentary condoms on hand, a 1960s-style free love has begun to blossom. More than 400 participants spent the night Friday huddling and cuddling in Zuccotti Park.

    None of which sits well with the movement’s leaders, who set up an internal police group to stop the boozing, pot smoking and hanky-panky.

    What?  The homeless aren’t part of the 99%?  Aren’t they supposed to fighting for all the “little” people? 

    They hypocrisy of the left amazes me still.  They set up an occupation based on the little people who want “real” democracy (we live in a republic, by the way) and have demands about how people don’t even have to work to make $20 an hour, then complain that people are freeloaders?  Did they think their message through to the logical conclusion?  If they have their way, the entire country will become like that stinky park in New York.  That is exactly what they are fighting for.

    Liberal logic in action.  They get what they ask for, then are unhappy with the results.

      No, they could not have thought their message through to its logical conclusion, because the conclusion is communism; and communism is a miserable failure. Every attempt at it has failed throughout history.

      The “social justice” crowd don’t want to share their pizza and warm clothing with the homeless?

      Pitiful.

    Bill Ayers Statement on Occupy Wall Street 

    What follows is the first official, collective statement of the protesters in Zuccotti Park:

    As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

    As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

    They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
    They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
    They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
    They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
    They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
    They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
    They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
    They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
    They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
    They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
    They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
    They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
    They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
    They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
    They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
    They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
    They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
    They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
    They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
    They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
    They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.
    They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
    They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government ontracts.*

    To the people of the world, We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

    Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

    To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

    Join us and make your voices heard!

    Do these people understand patent laws?  Or the law in general?  Illegal foreclosure due to not being the original bank?  Sorry, but if another buys a bank they attain your mortgage.  There are things in the small print of any legal contract about the buying and selling of loans.  You signed on the dotted so you agreed to it.  Used the military to forgo freedom of the press?  Where does this stuff come from? 

    The really sad part is that people on all sides of the political aisle could come together on some of these issues.  But they have to make it about things that have no business being in the realm of the federal government. 

    It is quite amusing that they have decided to go with Bill Ayers to come up with a unified voice of what they are after.  If he doesn’t get his away will he start setting of bombs again? 

    H/T Bill Ayers.com

    You may find it as interesting as I did that no where on his site does he mention his time in the Weather Underground or about his arrest record for his bombings.

    Oh, Isn’t This Special – They Have Demands 

    Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

    Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

    Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

    Demand four: Free college education.

    Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

    Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

    Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

    Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

    Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

    Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

    Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

    Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

    Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

    These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

    Well, lets see.  Every person in America gets paid $20 per hour.  How much are we going to paying for a bar of soap in this universe?  You don’t even have to work to get it. 

    I especially like demand eight – This is them admitting that the constitution is color blind.  So it isn’t that they don’t know that, they just choose to ignore it, and demand “rights” that don’t exist. 

    How long would it take to count all ballots in this country by hand? 

    Apparently, some of these people actually have a brain and are getting upset at this list of demands.  Someone there may actually realize that this won’t work.  Although, I doubt it.

      Two things are immediately obvious: they are socialist, communist, anti-capitalist IDIOTS ! The big labor guys are there !

      These demands have been thought “up” but not “out” ! None of it will happen and none of it would work !

      Let them demand till the cows come home !

    • fuzislippers 1:14 AM on 10/06/2011 Permalink | Reply

      LOL, what loons. And it gets even better. Apparently, they posted on their site that everyone should stop listing demands because it makes them look like what they are (extremist nutjobs). And even better than that, the post urges them to wait until the movement’s organizers and lawyers come up with a list of demands. Talk about useful idiots; they need to be told what they want, think, and believe. But I guess we knew that already.

    Quote of the Day – VP Biden Edition Part 2 

    “I don’t disrespect the Tea Party, I think the Tea Party and the Van Jones folks are different hats of the same concern. There’s an overwhelming frustration. There’s a great frustration here in America that the two parties haven’t been able to get very much moving. We have been in this period where there’s just nothing but fighting. So, you have, on the one hand, Van Jones’ guys — whoever he is — the point is, talking about the excesses of Wall Street and there’s some truth in what he says and there’s truth in what the Tea Party says.”

    Vice President Joe Biden on the Anti-Wall Street Protests.

    Why is Joe Biden acting like he and Van Jones don’t know each other?  They gave a speech together two years ago.  Interesting indeed.

      True, he does know who Van Jones is. How can he not given the circumstances under which Van Jones left the admin.

      That said, don’t you find it . . . interesting that Biden is “reaching out” however clumsily to the TEA Party and earlier took responsibility for the economy (a thing BO refuses to do)? He’s also looking and sounding more “presidential” these days. What does he know that we don’t?

      • just a conservative girl 3:01 PM on 10/05/2011 Permalink | Reply

        I am not sure I like where you are headed with this Fuzzi. I don’t see Biden as much of an improvement over what we have know, with one exception……………….he would give bloggers hours and hours worth of comedy gold material.

          Oh I hear you, but dems are desperate. BO is tanking in the polls, under so much stress that he sounds unhinged most of the times these days, and nothing he’s doing or saying is helping. They may be setting Biden up to be primaried, but dems want BO gone.

          Edit: I mean dems, not his progressive radicals who seem to have some kind of plan (that no doubt means more disaster for America).

    Anti Walmart Protest of Private Home 

    There was a protest at the private home of one the developers who is trying to bring a Walmart into a poorer section of Washington, DC. 

    I decided to go down and take a look at what they were doing and what type of press was covering it.

    See here

      Glad you got out there and filmed it. Your final comment about the fringe media’s reaction if any Tea Party group showed up at someone’s private residence to protest is spot-on. The silence around this . . . deafening. And typical.

    • just a conservative girl 3:31 AM on 01/21/2011 Permalink | Reply

      It wasn’t even on the local news. I got home in time to watch it and switched to all three chanels and didn’t see a darn thing.

    At What Point DO We get the “I’m Not Selfish I’m a Tax Payer Card” from this Administration. 

    We will be taxed. We will get a VAT. We will get add ons by the states to make up the differences as a result of unfunded mandates and to cover the promises already made. They will fiddle with property taxes to make up the losses in revenue from lower property values; they will tack on extra nicks here and there with the gas tax and sin taxes and salt taxes (probably) and sugar taxes (probably) and fat taxes (I’d guess yes).

    We will be told it is patriotic and that sensible people understand this is necessary for the greater good. So my question for all the enlightened smart sensible people is how much pain does one have to have in the wallet to qualify for legitimate gripes?

    When we have to give up our way of life? (i.e. cut back on some things that make our current existence nice or better or bearable?) No, it’s okay if you have to give up a gym or a maid service because that was for rich people and selfish anyway. What if we have to move? or drop schooling? Again, those are luxuries and you do what you have to do and you still have it way better than the rest of the world. So no sympathy there. When do we qualify as having given? We must come up with means to explain how bad the taxes are that the left would understand.

    When we pay to the point that we must endure 12 dollar or less wine? No. That leaves the good stuff for our betters.
    When we pay to the point that we no longer shop except at thrift stores? No. They like recycling.
    When we pay to the point that we no longer eat much other than Ramen noodles. No. We were too fat anyway.
    When we pay to the point that we no longer wash except once a week to cut the water bill and save on soap. No. Especially No. That sort of thing saves Mother Earth.
    When we pay to the point that we don’t go to get hair cuts….let’s see….bad food, poor hygeine, heavy bureacracy and no jobs, now all we need to do is learn French and we can be EuroAmerica; or Eurolite.

    I know! The litmust test to prove to the left that taxes are too high. The way we can get them to really see.
    When we pay so much we have to shop at (sob), Walmart.
