#GetAJobYouHippiecrits

Oh wait, you probably can’t get a job because Obama’s strangled the country with regulation after regulation while handing out sweetheart deals, jobs and cash to his cronies…but by all means continue protesting on Wall Street instead of on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Ok, so I’ve been reading all these stories over the last couple of weeks about the ‘Day of Rage’ (turns out it was more like the ‘Day of Mild Irritation’ )and ‘Occupy Wallstreet’. Today’s news was just chock full of lunacy. Anyway, I felt the need to compile some of this idiocy and hypocrisy. You can read a bit about the original Daaaaayy of raaaaaage here. While it would seem a lot of these people showing up have generally no clue what they are really there for, there are a few pervading themes that have cropped up. Namely, capitalism is evil, having a job is a ‘right’ and that banks and corporations are the devil. Not all of them are slacker socialist wannabes without jobs, some just are pretending to be. About 700 of them were arrested for stopping traffic on the Brooklyn bridge, including a NY Times Reporter, JammieWearingFool reported.

You know your movement has arrived when Zazzle starts making T-Shirts for you though. Totally elevates your protest to that professional level – right up there with the big boys of bad taste like the Tuscon Memorial turned Obama campaign event. Right…Ok, so onto some of the sights and sounds of these ‘ragers’.

Video from around the country rage-fests:

Hey wow, Charlie Rangel gets up close and personal in NYC with the common hipster man:

In Chicago, this is what Democracy looks like:

You’re invited to Occupy Boston:

Someone is actually chronicling this day by day – Here’s Day 11 w/ Cornell West! Nice drums, guys:

And now for some signs!

Gateway Pundit has several nice ones here.

The Blaze has a nice shot they snagged from the AP of a protestor with his pricey looking camera and laptop as well as some video:

Weasel Zippers has a few here, but they have the money quote from one NYer, “These Goddamned Hippies Close Down The Brooklyn Bridge So I Can’t Get Home”. Heh.

Zombie Time’s blog, of course, has a couple priceless ones:

Here are two randoms I came across in my daily morning news browsing:

Why do Protesters use the V for Vendetta mask? Did they even SEE that movie? Image from Robert Johnson

Ok, buddy — the V for Vendetta mask may look cool and creepy in an thespian-gone-anarchist sort of way, but dude… you look like an ass wearing it. It especially clashes with your corporate logo sweatshirt and pricey glasses dangling from the a pretty thick gold necklace.

Tahrir moment!? Seriously?

I was at a loss for the comparison of Wisconsin’s protests to those of Egypt as well. The people in Egypt rose up in the face of poverty, joblessness and starvation the likes of which this country has never seen – including the Great Depression. Their protest was violent (let no one forget Lara Logan) and a battle for the basics of survival, aside from the religious aspects inextricably tied to it.  Your temper tantrums, both in WI earlier this year and in a few major cities this past month are nothing close to this in content or rationalization:

My reality check to these protesters — wake up and smell the crony capitalism that the Tea Party pointed out 3 years ago. The root of it doesn’t reside on Wall Street or in big business but in the politicians. It resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Update 10-3-11: Don Surber had a piece up this morning that I had to include. Please go here and read the whole thing. His pictures say a lot and he has even more to say about them. “They” also have a list of demands now. You have to read this to believe it. It reads like a tree-hugging socialist’s Christmas list. Within minutes of my posting this link to their demands, they took the page down…not before I copied the text though…heh! Screenshots are here and here.

Proposed List Of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement!

Posted 7 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.

Lloyd J Hart 508-687-9153

Updated again 10-3-11: Within the last hour, the original list of demands (which was posted 7 days ago as I captured in my screenshot) was ripped down and replaced with this one here which lists it as being created 5 days ago. I call bullshit. I’m also copying the text and taking screenshots (here and here) — who knows, they may change it yet again. This is what democracy looks like! /facepalm

Specific Demand And Action List For Washington, DC

Posted 5 days ago by

* CLEAR LIST OF DEMANDS FOR CONGRESS when we engage in direct action at the Capitol complex (feel free to add or edit) *

  1. INVESTIGATE, ARREST AND TRY THE WALL STREET CRIMINALS who clearly broke the law and helped cause the 2008 financial crisis in the following notable cases: (insert list of the most clear cut criminal actions). There is a pretty broad consensus that there is a clear group of people who got away with millions / billions illegally and haven’t been brought to justice. Boy would this be long overdue and cathartic for millions of Americans. It would also be a shot across the bow for the financial industry. If you watch the solidly researched and awared winning documentary film “Inside Job” that was narrated by Matt Damon (pretty brave Matt!) and do other research, it wouldn’t take long to develop the list.
  2. CONGRESS ENACT LEGISLATION TO PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY BY REVERSING THE EFFECTS OF THE CITIZENS UNITED SUPREME COURT DECISION which essentially said corporations can spend as much as they want on elections and no disclosure is required about who’s giving to who. Corporations should be highly limited in ability to contribute to political campaigns no matter what the election and no matter what the form of media. The Supreme Court decision is really weird. Read it when you have a chance. The justices who argued for unlimited corporate contributions without disclosure thought that wouldn’t have an adverse effect on democracy and wouldn’t undermine the citizen’s view of legitimacy of elections. I’m not sure there’s a word for that it’s so strange.
  3. ACTION ON GLASS-STEAGALL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass–Steagall_Act — Wiki entry summary: The repeal of provisions of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933 by the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act effectively removed the separation that previously existed between investment banking which issued securities and commercial banks which accepted deposits. The deregulation also removed conflict of interest prohibitions between investment bankers serving as officers of commercial banks. Most economists believe this repeal directly contributed to the severity of the Financial crisis of 2007–2011 by allowing Wall Street investment banking firms to gamble with their depositors’ money that was held in commercial banks owned or created by the investment firms.
  4. CONGRESS PASS THE BUFFETT RULE ON FAIR TAXATION SO THE RICH AND CORPORATIONS PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE & CLOSE CORPORATE TAX LOOP HOLES INCLUDING PROHIBITION ON HIDING FUNDS OFF SHORE. Pass the Buffet Rule on fair taxation so the rich pay their fair share. (If you really had a good negotiating position and had the place surrounded, you could actually dial up taxes on millionaires, billionaires and corporations even higher. But this would require direct non-violent blockades / action in New York and DC to get the broad public support necessary).
  5. CONGRESS COMPLETELY REVAMP THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION AND STAFF IT AT HIGHEST AND LOWEST LEVELS WITH PROFESSIONALS WHO GET THE JOB DONE PROTECTING THE INTEGRITY OF THE MARKET THEREBY PROTECTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND INVESTORS. Also, this agency needs a large staff and needs to be well-funded.
  6. RE-ESTABLISH THE PUBLIC AIRWAVES IN THE U.S. SO THAT POLITICAL CANDIDATES ARE GIVEN EQUAL TIME FOR FREE AT REASONABLE INTERVALS IN DAILY PROGRAMMING DURING CAMPAIGN SEASON. The same should extend to other media.
  7. CONGRESS ENACT SPECIFIC LAWS THAT EFFECTIVELY BUILD A WALL BETWEEN THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY AND THE U.S. MILITARY. If we’re going after corruption and also trying to reduce all the unnecessary wars that are costly in so many ways (most importantly costly in terms of human life on both sides), then this is the GRANDDADDY OF ALL REFORMS. Any of you who have seen the award winning widely popular documentary “Why We Fight” will realize the HUGE impact of this. Here’s a snippet of Eisenhower’s brave speech.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”

That’s from part 5. Entire text here: http://www.h-net.org/~hst306/documents/indust.html .

Here is short youtube video of speech here. It’ll give you shivers. He was so brave: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUXtyIQjubU

But be sure to see “Why We Fight” if you haven’t already. I’d put it right up there with “Inside Job” as incredibly informative and well researched and highly watchable (if not RIVOTING).

Please keep one thing in mind. This is from Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks to so dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the nonviolent-resister may sound rather shocking. But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, we must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.

The purpose of our direct-action program is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation. I therefore concur with you in your call for negotiation.”

Here’s the entire “Letter from the Birmingham Jail”: http://abacus.bates.edu/admin/offices/dos/mlk/letter.html

And here’s a short video from BBC to inspire you. It gets pretty extraordinary about halfway through: http://youtu.be/lqN3amj6AcE

  3. Tea party is pissing their pants with jealousy because it took billions of dollars and 24/7 media advertisement to get them to “protest”, whereas #OccupyWallStreeters got up and did it with no media coverage for more than 2 weeks. 🙂
    You Republicrat pro-Obama pro-bankbailout bloggers are so scared by this. You claim you were against bank bailouts but most of you continue to vote for Republicrats who vehemently support it. You claim you are for “small government” but you support 16 trillion dollar giveaways to financial institutions that just pocket the money, wiretapping laws, Patriot Act, multiple occupations in countries you have no idea why we’re there, etc etc. We are anti-democrat, anti-republican anti-fascism.
    Before any of you respond, I recommend you take the PoliticalCompass quiz to see for yourself where you fall on the political spectrum. I won’t discuss politics with someone who doesn’t know left from right or authoritarianism from libertarianism.

      I’m hardly a ‘republicrat pro-obama pro-bank bailout blogger’. Thank you for assuming!

      “Tea party is pissing their pants with jealousy because it took billions of dollars and 24/7 media advertisement to get them to “protest”, whereas #OccupyWallStreeters got up and did it with no media coverage for more than 2 weeks. :-)”

      Seriously? What selective memory rock do you live under? Inside the first 3 months of the Obama admin the tea party was on the Mall protesting. It didn’t take billions or media coverage — they went on their own and on their own dimes.
      This little temper tantrum we’re seeing now has rallied around 700-1000 any given day? Out of the 14million+ in NYC and the 35million+ in the tri-state area? Please, this thing is such a socialist wet dream and a joke to the rest of us. Try again.
