    Occupy Wall Street Come Up With List Of Demands

    The movement seems to be coming together and is beginning to get some structure and there is a “99 Percent Declaration” (h/t Global Grind). There will be a General Assembly meeting in Philadelphia on July 4, 2012.

    They plan to elect delegates by direct vote, one male and one female per each of the 435 Congressional Districts. The office would be open to any United States citizen over the age of 18. The 870 delegates would then compose a petition of grievances that would be non-partisan.

    The posted “demands” are only a working list of “suggestions,” however. Number one and two are a ban on private contributions to politicians seeking or holding federal office and instead public financing for campaigns, and a constitutional amendment to reverse the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court.

    The list then goes on to suggest single-payer national health care, immediate passage of the DREAM Act, a jobs plan, a deficit reduction plan and recalling military personnel at all non-essential bases.

    Wow! I wish I could be a fly on the wall at that general assembly. You can't get a few dozen DUers or a couple hundred OWSers to agree on anything. They each bring their partisan demands. Now they are going to bring 870 people together and think that not only will they get something done that not only congress but the rest of the US will agree to and won't pressure congress to reject.

    Oh and did you get that they are only "suggestions"?

    misinformation...

    group of the General Assembly.

    They claim that they are a working group but they are not on the NYCGA working group list.

    This is where it came from with ZERO evidence of any kind of legitimacy.

    Its going to be a lot of fun to see this train wreak :D

    Everyone of those assholes who doesn't get their way are going to throw a fit, and every stupid idea they come up with won't apply to them.

    The lunatics will run the asylem and give ever nutjob a bottle of whiskey and a fully fueled chainsaw.

    Hey Dummies...they've already come up with a list of "demands"...and it woulds like something that basement dwelling leaches like you would LOVE!

    They want everything free...they want to be paid to sit on their ass and do nothing after getting their totally free college education and the best part...they have no CLUE how it's going to be paid for.

    Sound familiar?

    They even have a website where you can vote on these demands.

    Sounds like a great opportunity for moonbats to hook up. Oh wait, they'd be paired off into male-female sets...

    They know how to pay for it; they take your money and your stuff. And then they give it to some asshole who stays drunk and stoned all day ( and he's been that way since junior high ).

    The thing is that they won't be able to do it for long. After that the nation becomes either a dictatorship, or anarchy.
    They might like the former , but they ain't goin' like the latter.
