Arrests made at Occupy Wall Street, International media watching

New York – The International Press is starting to watch the activity by a group of young, peaceful protesters in the Wall Street area of New York City even if the United States press is not widely reporting the event. Arrests are also being reported from the area.

ABC News is one of the few United States media networks that has begun to report on the Occupy Wall Street movement. These reports come after a week long peaceful stand protesting the corporate giants that protesters say are harming the 99 percent of Americans suffering from economic struggles.

Ignorance Is Strength – A Republican Changes History And Literature By Spreading Ignorance

There is a sadly misinformed blog article written by Catherine Forester that is so bad that I could not resist rebutting it. Obama Plays Evil Capitalist With ‘Other’ People’s Money was written by  an Orlando Republican Examiner on September 19, 2011.It starts with this piece of tripe:

 Left wingers say that capitalism has failed. It is evil! They believe the only good society is a socialist society where everyone is paid equally ‘by the government’. Equality for everybody! 

In 1945 George Orwell wrote the allegorical Animal Farm exposing Stalin’s communism. Animals (with human characteristics) were exposed to the ‘wonders’ of socialism but through evil, ignorance and greed, the ‘society’ soon evolved into ‘leaders’ and ‘workers’ or as Orwell explained: “Some are ‘more’ equal than others”.

Clearly she knows few “left wingers” because I can’t find more than a handful that will sit still to listen to communist ideas. I say unambiguously communism because that was the system allegorized by Animal Farm. Note that communism is a form of government.  Socialism, which is an economic system, is what many of the mixed economies of the developed world choose to call their economy.  It is also should be noted that it was not even communism that George Orwell was allegorizing, but how such systems can be so easily corrupted. Also it must be pointed out that George Orwell was a socialist.

Socialist liberals like Barack Hussein Obama believe that they are the ones ‘more equal’ and the rest of us are simply ‘workers’. These liberals love capitalism as long as they can acquire billions of dollars of the ‘workers’ money to spend on their ‘pet projects’ or on themselves.

Only someone that could not even look at Wikipedia article or take a few hours to actually read a book written at a child’s reading level as Animal Farm could so boldly assert that our President Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist liberal (or equate him to anything in Animal Farm) when any sighted person could see that even his moderate base is often disgusted with his actions which clearly move to right so often. As for the far left, I am sure that is far beyond her ken.  We have no leaders save thought, no wealth save creativity and no agenda save truth.  I can safely say that although most of the far left voted for our President believing he would do much more than he has, and they will probably do so again with no better choice.  They disagree with him more strongly than she does.  Unlike her, however, they understand what being  a socialist really means. President Obama is sadly, no socialist.  However, if the right continue to trash the economy to make him look bad, then maybe we will see some viable socialist candidates. So Republicans. Knock yourself out.

One of Obama and liberals’ pet projects is ‘Green Energy’…

Not one environmentalist I know thinks Obama is actually “green” at all. His actions have repeatedly said otherwise, but that requires reading.  As for the “scandal” piece that I snipped, you can go to the original article. All I have to say it that it all boils down to the math challenged GOP and failure to say just how much much the failed investment represented of the total  (less than 1%)  and that we actually lag behind Germany and China in such investment.

Obama does not have the brains to be a capitalist with his own money, he has to use our tax dollars.  …

This sentence is just rude, arrogant and ignorant. What someone does with their own money is irrelevant and the President has no power of the purse. The President does nothing with your money and to suggest he does is slander because it is illegal. This is the GOP pissing contest. You are not worthy unless you can piss higher.  Go ahead GOP piss higher.

I can’t go on with this. She makes me tired.

2.5 years ago BP Oil gave Obama a million dollars in campaign funds and his MMS (Minerals Management Service) then waived safety violations and let BP drill deeper than anyone else and – voila – the Gulf Oil Spill. The media covered up this ‘campaign money cronyism’ pretty fast.  Obama did what liberals always do – changed the name’ of MMS to BOEMRE (Bureau of Ocean Management, Regulation and Enforcement).  This is how liberals fix scandals – they change names. Remember ACORN?  (  Look at the word ‘liberal’. After Americans understood that ‘liberal’ meant ‘tax and spend’, liberals began calling themselves ‘progressives’.

The first sentence is a bald face deception. Yes, BP contributed most to candidate Barack Obama, but overall BP contributed and contributes more to Republicans. They have to spread the money around because they don’t know who will win.  However, anyone with eyes can see they have owned the GOP much longer. There is that GOP math again.

As for ACORN, well, I would have had those that orchestrated the entrapment, doctored the videos and knowing pushed a false story indicted. Who knows if an investigation of Rupert Murdoch crosses the pond, then maybe it will happen.

In 13 months America gets to decide whether they want to continue the liberal experiment of socialism where everyone, except for the ‘rulers’, become wards of the government or go back to Reagan conservatism where each individual is free and can prosper. European socialist countries have depended on the United States capital economy to keep them afloat but since Obama is determined to destroy capitalism – Europe is collapsing under their socialist weight.  Obama has worked hard to destroy the American economy and has caused millions of people to lose their jobs and millions of people to lose their homes and their hope. This is what socialism does. 

Of course, liberal is such a broad term that it is meaningless.  Ron Paul’s social views are often liberal.  He would, for example, legalize many victimless crimes compared with our liberal democrats who often disagree with any such ideas.

I can see that the GOP math and reading challenge is really active in her last paragraph.  Anyone can look up what Ronald Reagan actually did.  So GOP you just go and continue to tout his values and actions.

And as for the economy,  anyone that thinks that the world economy was not dragged down mostly by deregulated banks, speculators and investors is just delusional.

Barack Hussein Obama and his ‘followers’ are hypocrites. They seek capitalists’ money for their political campaigns and they fawn over their ‘capitalist’ friends (such as Warren Buffett and Robert Rubin) while they try to destroy capitalism. They love socialism – but – only when they are the ones ‘more equal’. 

OMG. No she didn’t.  Capitalist money? Now she is just being a plan flat out fool.  Money does not take an adjective lest it be foolish.  And if it did take that one, then those damned capitalist just better fix this this world they created and apparently own before someone comes along and burns the rest of it down for them. I begin to think they may be hoping for that, so they can collect the insurance money on all their ‘capitalist’ investments that appear to not be worth what they paid for them.

ThinkProgess: WWJD? Not Let the Uninsured Die

In my email 09/16/11 from

Conservative Christians Rebuke Tea Party Extremists

ThinkProgress traveled to Liberty University, one of the most conservative Christian universities in the country, earlier this week to cover a speech by Texas Governor Rick Perry. Following Perry’s speech, we asked students to comment on the shocking moment during this week’s GOP presidential debate when the Tea Party crowd cheered for the death of an uninsured man. Check out the video from ThinkProgress’ Scott Keyes:

Here’s the transcript:

KEYES: In the debate on Monday, there was the question of whether or not a 30 year old who doesn’t have health insurance and gets in a major accident, we ought to just let him die or we ought to provide care for him. What do you think would be the Christian thing to do?STUDENT 1: Definitely to give him care, no matter what your age is.

KEYES: What do you think the Christian thing to do there is?

STUDENT 2: If he didn’t have health insurance?

KEYES: Yeah.

STUDENT 2: I would say take care of him.

KEYES: Do you think it’s un-Christian to be letting uninsured people die? What would you do?

STUDENT 3: Why would someone let anyone die just because they can’t pay for something? That’s the thing I don’t understand. Me and my family, we’re financially impaired right now, we’re in a shelter. We have insurance and all that, but at the same time for those who don’t have insurance, what’s the point of killing someone, taking a life, just because they can’t pay for something? It’s like going to a hospital, charging millions of dollars to have an operation to save someone’s life, they can’t pay for it, okay so we’ve got to kill them? We can’t save a life because they can’t pay for it? That doesn’t make any sense to me, I don’t understand.

KEYES: Do you think that’s a Christian thing to let an uninsured person die?

STUDENT 4: Absolutely not. I don’t see how that’s Christian in any way. I mean “Christian.” I think everyone has the right to life, including I don’t agree with capital punishment, I think that those people also have a right to life.

KEYES: What do you think the Christian thing to do there would be?

STUDENT 5: I believe provide care for him. I believe we should provide some care for him.

KEYES: What do you think, do you think that it would be Christian to let uninsured people die?

STUDENT 6: I don’t think it is. I think that they should work towards making sure that people no matter what should live.

STUDENT 3: I bet if Jesus came back right now, all them politicians, all them doctors who had to do something like that would probably give their life to Christ because they felt so bad about themselves. Because they knew that they took a life just because someone couldn’t pay for it.

Sign Here: Tell Congress to Rebuild America

For the past decade, Congress has had no problem spending over $120 billion to rebuild schools, roads, bridges and other essential infrastructure in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, America’s infrastructure is crumbling and millions of people are out of work. All the Republican leaders in Congress voted to approve massive amounts of funding to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan without a penny in offsets. But now they are opposing President Obama’s proposal to rebuild America even though it’s fully paid for. Contact your member today and demand we invest at least as much in our own communities as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan. Click here to contact your member of Congress.
