#1 What do the Wall Street Occupiers want?10-04-2011, 12:32 AM
Not much. Just a little Marxism and 3rd World mojo, that's all. Is that so much to ask?
Proposed List Of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement!
Posted 8 days ago by LloydJHart (Vineyard Haven, MA)
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.
This is what Liberals want for the United States of America, People.
Any questions?"Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

I'll give one tiny bit of credit, they call for 2 TRILLION DOLLARS in spending, and then declare all debt has to be erased. That would be the only possible way of coming up with the money, after all.Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

Again, anyone want to question my assertion that liberalism is a mental illness? If this doesn't prove to you that these people are batshit crazy nothing will.

They want to belong, rage against the machine, revolt to be cool, fit in to something that will accept them. They want to change the narrative from "I'm a loser" to "the Man is holding me down." These people are useless to society but useful idiots to the left. The end state is chaos and destruction. They want a "reset" but have not defined how that is done or what the outcome is likely to be. History would enlighten them but they believe they are better than the last crop of losers who tried this.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

What exactly is a living wage? Seriously. Technically, you can live on $300 a week. How about I set the living wage, K? But there's a catch. In order to qualify for the "living wage" you are not permitted the following items:
Televisions of any kind(you may have a simple radio in order to hear music and get news)
Cooking appliances outside of an oven and stove
Anything other than basic clothing(gray pants, shirt, socks, and shoes)
Art unless it's something you yourself made
Any house bigger than the size of your family. For example, a family consisting of 2 parents and 2 children are limited to a 2 bedroom/1 bathroom house.
More than 1 automobile.
Any food outside of the basic food groups meaning no junk food of any kind and the only permitted beverage is water. I may allow iced tea made from tea bags.
Sound ridiculous? Well, now you know how these brain dead idiots sound. Fair enough wee wee?

pretty good discussion on Judge Nap last night about this.
It seems if they can shake the socialism, then some conservative tea party types might find a common goal.

Heard Rush listing these off today. The demands are a masterpiece of magical thinking, and totally devoid of any cause-and-effect reasoning.
