    Hmmm, just a few weeks ago the Occupy Wall Street protesters were being thoroughly demonized by corporatist Republican presidential candidates. But now the candidates seem to be having their speeches written by the liberal protesters.

    From today's news:
    "Is capitalism really about the ability of a handful of rich people to manipulate the lives of thousands of other people and walk off with the money?"
    -Newt Gingrich, campaigning in New Hampshire. (Specifically, trashing Romney's record of destroying jobs and profiting from it).

    "The wealth is taken from the middle class and it goes to the select few, who are the insiders."
    -Ron Paul

    Rick Perry complained that “greedy people on Wall Street” were taking advantage of small companies, and seemed to call for the reinstitution of the Glass-Steagall Act. (Has he been taking notes from Occupy's website? :lolicon_smile.gif

    I was thinking the same thing when I heard him say those words on TV yesterday. No they havn't neither have the Democrats, only when saying the right thing and making sense is to their benefit they tend to say things that are reasonable which co insides which what OW has been saying for a while now.

    P.S. Buddy Roamer is the only candidate who has openly endorsed OW.

    OWS changed the culture.


    Amen to that.

    I read the other day that there seems to be a coming together of some of the TBagger leaders with the ideas of the OWS to gang up on the banks and wall street.

    Republicans pander to the fearful, angry mob mentality. Doesn't matter what the mob is about. Anything to get into office, then...

























    WHAM!!!

    ...they'll fuck you hard and dry, put you away wet, turn and sell you down the river.

    They have the oil companies on their side... Raise oil prices, economy gets worse, elections in November come, everyone votes Republican.. Boom Bodda Bing.. History always repeats.. The opposite party always win the elections during a bad economy that is not improving much.. Corporations are the one's whom control your thinking.. As long as the economy can be manipulated to fool the uneducated, Republicans will always be around.. Sad but true..

    Gas prices are going back up to $4 a gallon within the month... We all know what happens when we have to pay high gas prices.. I predicted this in January of last year when gas prices went through the roof, now once again.. The Dow Jones is going to be bouncing on a trampoline again.. Go figure..

    Actually I just found where a Bank/Wall Street CEO, sent a letter to colleges expressing the fear of what could happen if TBaggers and OWS get together and demonstrate against Bank/Wall Street interests. God how I hope these two get together and give-em-hell in demonstrations this spring and summer.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Give the repubs time, they'll get those gas prices up for their buddy's, they'll do it by pushing harder against their Islamist boogymen for a new war, this time with Iran. that will transfer a lot of wealth to the very rich corps. What a winner that would be for the repubs !!! but the sheeple will dutifully follow and vote in their jebus candidates who will "bring our nation back to god".

    OWS changed the culture.

    You have it completely backwards. The themes of the tea party organizations, smaller government, less spending, will be very significant and will be major themes in the next administration starting in Jan 2013.

    Railing against banks, etc. has long been a theme, and the OWS only created a slogan 1% and 99%. That slogan has lost its momentum, and nothing remains of them. An extremely inconvenient poll for your guys is from Harvard, which you cannot accuse of being incompetent or a shill for the right:

    "Thirty-two percent of Millennials [age 18-29] say they are following the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations either very (6%) or somewhat closely (26%), with 66% not following the demonstrations closely. Only twenty-one percent (21%) said they supported the movement. A detailed report on the poll’s findings is available on the Institute’s homepage at www.iop.harvard.edu."

    With 66% not following OWS closely, the rest of the poll is pretty meaningless.

    If they're not following it, probably not having much of an impact, huh?

    I think changing the entire trajectory of the National dialogue in four months is a pretty big impact.
