I'm not surpised. I agree with the message and supported them at first and have gotten tired of them.
“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” John Maynard Keynes
1 Did the poll takers bother to question any voters within the OWS protestors, or did they just take for granted that none of these protestors vote?
2. Was there a selective process of voters questioned or was this done randon from state to state?
I ask these questions for I support the OWS protestors but was not ask to participate in any poll?
Perhaps I am not worthy enough after all I'm jost a lowly Independent, but come NOV. 2ND 2012 ny vote will be counted.
I don't think I'm the only voter that supports the OWS, I am not alone.
Perhaps this poll may have missed others like me?
Tiki bar regular.
My code, never take anything for granted always expect the unexpexted.
Never take anything you don't need ,never want anything you can't have
Please provide reference where I stated that ‘it wouldn’t work’. I believe your stated position was that ‘one failed company Solyndra’ to which I found 4 more that had failed.All you guys have provided is your opinion that you don't think it will work.
Again, please provide a reference to where I stated ‘its not possible to develop alternate means of energy’.Fine, I got it. Some used to think a horseless carriage couldn't replace the horse and buggy. Some never thought man could fly. Some never thought man could travel to the moon. And some think its not possible to develop alternate means of energy.
I couldnt agree more. The overall message that big business is too big is one I can get behind! Their means is where I have problems.I'm not surpised. I agree with the message and supported them at first and have gotten tired of them.
We in the US has had a standard of living that as a whole is so far above the emerging economies of other countries that it's not even funny. These emerging economies are where we were in the 50's and 60's and they are huge markets. To be competitive in theses markets is impossible at the factory wages that are being paid and expected to be paid here in the US. When it costs more to produce, then the product is selling for in those economies a company has a choice to make, either move where costs are in line with the global market, and be competitive, or ignore that market all together. From a large business perspective ignoring those markets is just stupid. I guess from your perspective big business should ignore them . Just showing once again why liberals usually don't sit at the top of big business.
The other part of your theory that is questionable is what do you consider long term? I agree maybe in 30 or 40 years it might turn out some decisions were bad, as these emerging economies get closer to ours and the global economy is much more even from country to country then having your company located in a certain country might not be as profitable as it is now. To the best of my knowledge most companies have no business plan that extends out 30 or 40 years ..
Bashing big business is just a liberal whining point, because they have no alternative or no idea what is needed to bring industry back into this country, and most liberals are exceptional when it comes to placing blame, but most un-exceptional when to comes to solutions. The only idea I see from most liberals .. including you.. is to tax them more .. make them even more uncompetitive in a global economy, and that dear Boo doesn't work in the short .. or long term.
Unlike you, I understand that to have a thriving economy we need “both” and strong middle class and a strong business and industry. Business and industry builds the middle class that then buys the products that they make, and increases the business and industry
When liberals finally understand that we need business and industry as much as we need a strong middle class and that you can't have one without the other. Maybe just maybe we can turn the corner. Keep bashing them, and making them the enemy, keep blaming them for our woes and personally I see no reason why they should do anything different different … and in fact why they wouldn't just say f**k you …. you see us as the problem, so we'll just move even more money to other countries, even more jobs overseas, and see how you do without us. Personally if I was in their shoes, that is exactly what I'd do.
