    Ohhhh, how would it be "progress" when the rich are being taxed to death?
    I think most of us missed when the rich died off:

    "A 2011 study by the CBO found that the top earning 1% of households gained about 275% after federal taxes and income transfers over a period between 1979 and 2007, (although this number has decreased somewhat since 2007 as a result of the Great Recession[17]). From 1992 to 2007 the top 400 earners in the U.S. saw their income increase 392% and their average tax rate reduced by 37%.[18] The share of total income in America going to the lower earning 80% of American households (also after federal taxes and income transfers) has dropped to less than 1/2 in 2007."

    Income inequality in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    You mean George Soros? The 1%er who funds the Occupy movement?
    Reestablishing the regulations we had for a half century that prevented the formation of banks too big to fail and unsecured derivatives that public taxpayers ended up taking the hit for.



    How about just no bailouts?
    If we reregulate the financial institutions, there will be no need for bailouts.



    So your commie friends on death row stay alive to give you advice???????
    Here are the countries like us that still have capital punishment:

    "2011 - As of 30 December 2011 executions have been reported in the following 15 countries during 2011: Afghanistan,[5] Bangladesh, Belarus,[6] China, Egypt [7], Iran, Iraq[8] North Korea, the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan,[9] Taiwan,[10] UAE, USA."

    Looks like we are in good company!!!






    Come on! The govt can't afford poop.
    They were talking about local government. It must be cold up there!



    Then who would be left in the Maine National Guard?
    They were talking about them coming back from Afghanistan to Maine.

    The demand for lower heating oil prices was for their local government, and without knowing more about what they mean, I would agree it doesn't make much sense on the surface.

    None of the national demands are anti-capitalistic. Progressive taxation has been held to be constitutional under the rule of law in this country for at least the last 100 years.

I want money out of politics.

    but I no longer support OWS. and why not? because of their violent, disgraceful, disruptive, and unpatriotic actions during fall 2011. because some of their demands, are insane, greedy, and selfish. because not only do they refuse to come up with a platform, but they take pride in having no concrete platform or goals.

    this makes them losers, a waste of the public's time, and one giant political tease.

    this nation, needs a revolutionary social-democratic movement, that is NOT AFRAID to have goals that will be rejected by extremists. we need a movement that is willing to work with like-minded politicians.

    and OWS? well they seem to be just a bunch of cowards, unwilling to stand up for something detailed & clear....out of fear that they might lose some supporters. they want to remain as vague, generalized, and non-commital as possible.

    so **** them.
    For a Liberal who's views are too far left for me to agree, you do have decency and honor and I commend you.

    Or maybe perhaps it's because footage of flag burning anarchists from OWS do exist.

    Good job Glenn Beck. How long did it take you to figure that one out.


    Your on a roll. Add a red flag with a swastika and you get NAZI!
    The Red star is a symbol of unity. Five points represent the fist.



    You tell me Glenn...


    Sure its majority figured of "leftists". But there are right wing people in the movement as well.


    A fist?


    Sure commis use it...


    No but your a little

    Actually it was a propaganda campaign to unite industrial workers with agricultural workers not peasants. It is common knowledge that the hammer and cycle is a symbol that represents Communism not socialism. Nice try though.


    Good job Glenn Beck. How long did it take you to figure that one out.
    Even an idiot like beck would be able to see that a red star and the hammer and cycle were on the soviet flag. Are you trying to tell us that you were not as smart as Glenn Beck when choosing to place them side by side in your signature?


    Your on a roll. Add a red flag with a swastika and you get NAZI!
    The Red star is a symbol of unity. Five points represent the fist.
    Nazi? bwahaha. Oh and you are correct the red star on the soviet flag in for unity.



    You tell me Glenn...
    You should try harder with your insults like maybe something not so overdone and predictable.


    Sure its majority figured of "leftists". But there are right wing people in the movement as well.
    Your claim of Rightwingers is icing on the cake. You still have not provided us any proof of real people in the occupy movement that are Right wingers. But you did post a few bumper stickers, but anyone could have put those there right? lol.


    A fist?
    Yea a fist what are you blind or something?


    Sure commis use it...
    Yes 99% Commies use the hammer and cycle. The other 1% are idiots that have no clue that 99% of the world knows that the hammer and cycle is an COmmunist symbol. Thats a big C not a wimpy little one.


    No but your a little
    Yea that will help your assertions . Really it will. lol


    Man you must of took the red pill didnt you? Your deep in the rabbit hole now...
    Sorry but I do not take pills nor am I bugs bunny but thanx for asking.

    BTW I thought that I would entertain your notion that Rightists are involved in OWS and in effect in your assertion giving ows a legit status. SO I googled it.

    ANd you are right and it turns out that they are Nazis. SO I must give you credit where credit is due. You were right and I was wrong. But OWS still is not legit and even less so now knowing that OWS is not only full of commies but also nazis.

    American Nazi Party Racial Comrades: I am going to address the issue of this "Occupy Wall Street" fervor that has been sweeping the land like a breath of cleansing air!

    THE NATIVES ARE GETTING RESTLESS, AND ZOG FEARS IT MIGHT HAVE A POPULAR UPRISING ON ITS HANDS - finally!

    This issue is TAYLOR MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN who are serious about DOING SOMETHING - MORE - than shouting "racial slurs" and acting like "poster boys of hate" loons.

    After all - JUST WHO - are the WALL STREET BANKERS? The vast majority are JEWS - and the others are SPIRITUAL JEW materialists, who would sell their own mother's gold teeth for a PROFIT. And MORE and MORE people are AWARE of this truth, are not only NOT afraid to TALK ABOUT IT - they're shouting it on WALL STREET!

    I urgently URGE all of you to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the "JEW BANKER" influence - DON'T wear anything marking you as an "evil racist" - and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD! Put as a "contact point" on your literature, our American Nazi Party address - it won't immediately "scare off" some of these scaredy-cats for even looking at our FACTS - for FACTS they ARE!

    If you are unable to produce your own leaflets - check out the "support" section of our website - there are a LOT of good flyers there to utilize.

    This issue reminds me a LOT of the "GASOLINE SHORTAGE" of the 1970's - where National Socialists found a HUGE receptive audience, for our viewpoints - per the JEWISH CONTROL of OUR GOVERNMENT and its insane support for Zionist Israel, and the Arab Oil Boycott that hit OUR people so hard.

    As I have so often in the past spoke on - the White Working Class - is going PAST, the BOILING POINT, and is quickly reaching ULTIMATE EXPLOSION! THEY want ANSWERS! THEY want RESULTS! All of which this evil corrupt, decadent JUDEO-CAPITALIST SYSTEM is incapable of giving them. WHY? Because its BOUGHT and SOLD to the CORPORATE ELITISTS who are fast turning America into a "South American" style - THIRD WORLD WAGE-SLAVE STATE - ( complete with MILLIONS of BROWN illegal aliens willing to ACCEPT YOUR JOB for LOW WAGES and NO BENEFITS ) where, currently 3% of the population CONTROL 85% of the nation�s WEALTH! And the "GREAT DIVIDE" is GROWING each and every year that passes.

    WE - the WHITE WORKING CLASS - have been LIED TO and totally DECIEVED - just the other day, the system APPROVED THREE MORE so-called "Free-Trade" deals. ALL of which mean that MORE JOBS are going to be SENT OVERSEAS - YOUR JOBS! Don't you CARE? Enough to DO SOMETHING?

    NOW is the TIME! GET INVOLVED! IT�S YOUR FUTURE THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

    YOU can DO - ONE of TWO THINGS - SUBMIT to the uncaring GREED of these CORORATE, WALL STREET THUGS and their SOCK-PUPPETS in GOVERNMENT. OR, - YOU can RESIST! I CHOOSE RESISTANCE for MY FAMILY and MYSELF!
    Now that Zog is on your side you will finally be heard. viva ows aye? Now I understand the anti jew signs at all of the ows shows.

    Nope its not over yet. Not even close. This movement is just gearing up again. When spring comes back around i think something big will happen. The movement is planning a spring awakening..

    Thoughts?
    Comments?
    Response? [/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
    My thought now is that anyone still involved in it isn't protesting: they're just living there.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    From Wall Street To Beursplein, Our Resistance Is Global

    "Occupy Amsterdam is again being threatened with eviction.

    Amsterdam is home to the world´s oldest stock market - and it is #Occupied. Protesters in Amsterdam, along with dozens of cities across the Netherlands and hundreds throughout the world, took their square on a Global Day of Action on October 15, 2011, four weeks after Occupy Wall Street began. Occupy Amsterdam has occupied Beursplein (Exchange Square, directly in front of the Amsterdam stock exchange, now owned by Wall Street-based NYSE Euronext) ever since. Alongside the Acampadas in Spain and Portgual and the popular assemblies in Greece, the Netherlands remains among the most active Occupy movements in the non-English speaking world."

    "Please help spread the word and show support to Occupiers everywhere! From Old Amsterdam to New Amsterdam, we are fighting the same global system. As a movement, we share tactics, visions, goals, and principles. The austerity and bail-outs wrecking Europe are the same Wall Street-based systems causing economic injustice in North America. The 1% does not recognize borders; neither will our resistance. And everywhere we rise up, governments use the same excuses to force us from the public square. Now, as the weather becomes warmer in the Northern hemisphere and more people return to the streets to protest inequality in these areas, the ruling elites are trying even harder to keep us out of the people´s parks.

    The reason Occupy Amsterdam has been told to leave Beursplein is the same reason the NYPD attacked the re-occupation of Liberty Square: The 1% are terrified of the coming #GlobalSpring. This May, we will stand united. The 99% will not be divided. Occupy is a global movement against corporate greed, economic exploitation, and complicit political systems. And everywhere, we are solving the economic crisis - not by relying on the existing ruling class - but by taking direct action in solidarity with one another."
