'We are Wall Street' Leafts Dropped on 'Occupy Chicago' Protesters

Wednesday afternoon, some one from the Chicago Board of Trade dropped leaflets on the 'Occupy Chicago' protesters.
We are Wall Street It's our job to make money. Whether it's a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn't matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn't hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone's 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, it's not a problem until you lose. I've never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.

Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you're only going to hurt yourselves. What's going to happen when we can't find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We're going to take yours. We get up at 5am & work till 10pm or later. We're used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don't take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don't demand a union. We don't retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we'll eat that.

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We're going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half. I'll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.

So now that we're going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we're going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren't going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We're going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it's really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.

We aren't dinosaurs We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply... will he?

OccupyWallStreet: Anarchists, Socialists, Unions, Democrats and Their Plans to ‘Destabalize’ Global Markets, Governments

We’re in this for the long haul. There are no “solutions” that can be presented quickly to make us go away. And so there will be moments where our presence is no longer an uncomfortable and unknown variable, but rather is normalized and integrated. It’s in those moments that we have to push the envelop, pry open the space of possibility even farther. We go as far as we can to destabalize, but maintain momentum. And when that’s the new “normal” then we go farther. That’s how change happens, how we shift the terrain and the terms of the game.

- Email in “Occupy” archive, “Re: Can OWS be turned into a Democratic Party Movement?”; Wednesday, October 12, 2011
“October is going to be the turning point when it comes to the progressive fight back,” he went on. “We are a part of something called the American Dream Movement. We`re having a huge summit on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Come—you can go to rebuildthedream.com and find out more about it. We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the Tea Party.”

- Van Jones, MSNBC, The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, Thursday, September 29, 2011
These are just a couple of examples of what is going on behind the scenes with the Occupy Wall Street Movement. There is nothing spontaneous about OccupyWallStreet and its many spin-off protests across America. Groups like Anonymous, Lulzsec, Anti-Sec started actively organizing or at least aided in the dissemination of the information. Indicating that many of their members or at least the ones in control are actively working with subversive organizations here, in America, and abroad.

What exactly do these protesters want? What is their platform? From what I can tell, most of the people that are attending these protests are "died in the wool" socialist, communists, and anarchists. They claim they want social justice and social equality, whatever those are, your guess is good as mine. They don't really want justice and equality, They fully intend to collapse the system and replace it with a system consistent with their Marxists ideologies. Meaning that the differences between those who "Have" and those who "Have not" becomes even more dramatic. The only difference is they get to control who is a member of those categories.

Time to wake up to what is happening around you America. You keep sleep walking through life, you are going to wake to a country that you no longer recognize.

Nazis and Communists Support The Occupy Wall Street Movement

The American Nazi Party likes what it sees. The American Nazi Party released a statement in support of Occupy Wall Street movement.

The foremost authority on National Socialism in America has this to say about “Occupy” [ANP leader Rocky Suhayda -ed.] :

What is really MISSING – is the “MOVEMENT” from these popular protests – its time to pull WN heads out of their collective ass’s, and JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Capitalism. What do you suggest? That WN Working Class White people DEFEND the Judeo-Capitalists? IF the “movement” wasn’t so PATHETIC it would be OUT THERE – LEADING these protests! The fact that its these “lefties” as you call them, who are picking up the ball and running with it – only shows how much more in tune THEY are with the fed up masses of White Workers, than the fossilized, reactionary “right-wing”. WHO holds the WEALTH and POWER in this country – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO is therefore the #1 ENEMY who makes all this filth happen – the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO therefore do WN need to FIGHT? My heart is right there with these people, perhaps someday the “movement” will SHOW the same COURAGE and DEDICATION that these people OUT THERE FIGHTING are SHOWING!

Sincerely, ROCKY SUHAYDA Hail Victory! 88!

The Communist Party USA also supports the Obama-endorsed Occupy Wall Street Protests.

From the CPUSA website:

This is an exciting time! Thousands of mainly young people have been occupying Wall Street for three weeks already, and the “Occupy Movement” has spread to more than 200 other cities. On Oct. 6 the actions spread to our nation’s capital.

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) will hold a national teleconference to discuss it:

Arturo Cambron
The Communist Party and the Occupy L.A. Movement
Tuesday, October 11, 8 pm Eastern
Teleconference number: 605-475-4850 (please note this is the corrected number. ignore previous.)
Access code: 1053538#

Southern California Party leader Arturo Cambron will share how the CPUSA and Young Communist League (YCL) are working in “Occupy Los Angeles.”

This movement, also known as the “99% movement,” is being hailed across the country. Movements and organizations are reaching out in solidarity. The AFL-CIO is opening union halls and offering other material assistance. Ordinary people are donating food, money and materials.

In many areas, the “Occupy Movement” is linking up with the National American Wants to Work Week of Actions, Oct. 10-16.

No doubt the “Arab Spring” demonstrations and those that exploded in Wisconsin, Ohio and elsewhere have inspired it. But underlying it all is the economic crisis, the massive unemployment and growing realization that nothing is getting better, and in fact we may be slipping into a “double dip” crisis. The crushing student debt and the feeling of being locked out of society with no future compound this.

The movement is the newest wrinkle in the all-people’s upsurge against the banks and corporations and reflects a new level of class-consciousness.

Yuri Bezmenov: Deception Was My Job

This is G. Edward Griffin's shocking video interview, Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984), where he interviews ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov who decided to openly reveal KGB's subversive tactics against western society as a whole.

Bezmenov explains how Jewish Marxist ideology is destabilizing the economy and purposefully pushing the U.S. into numerous crises so that a Big Brother tyranny can be put into place in Washington, how most Americans don't even realize that they are under attack, and that normal parliamentary procedures will not alter the federal government's direction.

He then explains how Marxist leaders use informers to make lists of anti-Communist and other politically incorrect people who they want to execute once they - actually a Jewish oligarchy - come to power. The oligarch's secret lists include "civil rights" activists and idealistically-minded "useful idiot" leftists as well.

Bezmenov provides several real world examples of how Marxist leaders even execute and/or imprison each other. Also he explains how American embassy employees were known to betray Soviets attempting to defect, how their existed a "triangle of hate" in the Soviet government, why he realized that Marxism-Leninism was a murderous doctrine, and how the CIA ignored (or didn't care) about Communist subversion.

He also mentions that revolutions throughout history are never the result of a majority movement, but of a small dedicated and highly-organized group who seize power, whether for good or bad. Next he explains how the American mass media spread lies about life in the Soviet Union.

Bezmenov also explains how the LOOK magazine article falsely claimed that the Russian people were proud of their victory in the Second World War, where in reality the Judeo-Bolshevik-Communist-Marxist government was happy that Hitler had been defeated so that they could remain in power.

Find out how the KGB utilized various individuals to undermine the Western society in its morals and values.

Communist Party U.S.A. in Solidarity with Occupy Chicago

Communist Party marches in solidarity with Occupy Chicago. Occupy Chicago gives them a warm reception.

So, do you still think we don't have a problem in America? Wake up, this is what is happening right now. This is the change that President Obama was talking about when he campaigned for President.

Is the Governement Capable of Learning From Past Mistakes? No.

“It almost seems to me you want to have some type of announcement or policy, program or something from the federal government that provides that clear signal that we are here supporting the housing market and this is indeed a good time to really consider buying,”

-- Frank E. Nothaft, the chief economist at Freddie Mac.
While talking to the New York Times, Frank Nothaft made the above comment about a rumored Obama administration plan to offer lower mortgage rates to people with bad credit.

If I am not mistaken, but wasn't the 2008 housing market collapse, directly related the the high number of defaults on mortgages granted to people who did not have the means to repay said mortgages? So, the latest idea, coming out of Washington to stimulate the housing market, is for the government to back low interest mortgages to people, who can not afford to repay said mortgages.

Home ownership is a privilege and not a right. How on Earth, would this brain dead crowd in Washington even think for the briefest of moments that past failed policies, would stand a chance of working now? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Finance 101, folks. You do not lend money to people who do not have the means to repay. Anyone, who as operated a bank for any length of time, understands this concept. I suspect that every bank that has failed, did not adhere to sound financial principles. I would like to know how many of the banks, that have failed in recent years, were willing participants in the Governments insanity of handing out money to people who can't repay?

Starbucks CEO to DC: You've been cut off

CNN Money


NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is fed up with Washington.

And he is doing something about it.

Spurred by what he describes as a failure of leadership on the part of lawmakers, Schultz is mounting a one-man bull rush against a political culture that has "chosen to put partisan and ideological purity over the well being of the people."

San Francisco judge removes circumcision ban from ballot
By Madison Park, CNN
July 28, 2011 7:33 p.m. EDT
San Francisco residents will not be voting on whether male circumcisions should be banned in the city this fall.

A Superior Court judge ordered Thursday that the proposed measure, which had initially made it onto the November 8 city ballot, be removed entirely.
Superior Court Judge Loretta Giorgi wrote that male circumcision is "a widely practiced medical procedure" and that medical services are left to the regulation of the state, not individual cities.

Finally, someone in San Francisco that displays a bit of common sense.  This whole proposal to ban male circumcisions, under the pretense that it is genitalia mutilation was just down right ludicrous.

Stark Reality: Dem Firebrand Admits Debt Ceiling Deadline a Charade

Democrat firebrand Pete Stark appeared at a town hall meeting in Fremont, California Saturday morning. After receiving an award from the local MoveOn.org chapter for his work on their behalf, Congressman Stark addressed the Debt Ceiling crisis.


“You’ve heard a lot about the Debt Limit. And I guess that’s – I don’t know how many of you are worried about it or concerned about it. The fact is I think it’s a political charade.

“I’m afraid that the Democrats have done that in the past, threatened to shut down the government. I don’t think there’s a chance that it will happen. I think the last time somebody did, they lost enough seats in the House of Representatives to convince them it was a dumbest thing they ever did. [It] doesn’t get us anywhere, it doesn’t help anybody, and to extend the Debt Limit is nothing more – than people have described it – than that the government’s credit card doesn’t run out of resources.

“And we all know we have more debt than we should be carrying and there’s a fight going on: Should we raise your taxes to lower that debt? Should we quit government spending? The question is if we quit government spending, what do we quit spending? Do we quit spending on Social Security and WIC and children’s daycare? Or do we quit spending for corporate jet deductions, and those sorts of things? And those are the political fights.

“They are going to go on. You’ll hear about them ‘til the end of the year. My prediction is that we will extend the Debt Ceiling; and the Republicans will accuse us Democrats of being big taxers and big spenders; and I guess we’ll accuse them of not being concerned about the elderly, and the poor, and children.

“And the country will go on with its debates, and we hope that you will all stay involved and express your opinions loudly and to all of us. …”
Congressman Stark's statements expose a rift between the President and his allies on the ideological Left and Democrats in office. Elected officials and Hill watchers have always known that the August 2 deadline was arbitrary, and that the US Treasury - receiving $200B each month - is well-able to pay its financial obligations, including the military, interest on the debt, and Social Security with money left over.

Meanwhile, the President's insistence - for political gain - on August 2 marking a 'debt ceiling doomsday' continues to send shock waves through an already jittery global financial market. The phony deadline is creating the possibility of very real negative financial ramifications to the US economy.

The Decline: The Geography of a Recession by LaToya Egwuekwe

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 28 million people currently unemployed -- that's including those involuntarily working part-time and those who want a job, but have given up on trying to find one. In the face of the worst economic upheaval since the Great Depression, millions of Americans are hurting. "The Decline: The Geography of a Recession," as created by labor writer LaToya Egwuekwe, serves as a vivid representation of just how much. Watch the deteriorating transformation of the U.S. economy from January 2007 -- approximately one year before the start of the recession -- to the most recent unemployment data available today.

A student at Louisiana State University reportedly is planning to burn an American flag on campus Wednesday as part of a peaceful protest, the student newspaper reports. ...

Editorial Comment: Every court in the land that has ruled the various forms of expression as protected under the "Free Speech" clause of the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution; are so far in out in left field, I don't even think they can see home plate.

The framers of the "Bill of Rights", specifically the 1st Amendment never intended to protect the expression of anger and hate as forms of political speech. Burning the flag of any nation, not just the American flag, is an expression of hate; and therefore was never intended to be protected speech.

It is long past time that someone in this nation interjected some restraint is the political discourse. The level of rhetoric and outrageous behavior have to be brought under control. This is not a Kindergarten Playground.

Man Mauled by Bear While Not At Work Gets Workers' Comp

Court: Man mauled after smoking pot gets work comp
Published Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 8:16 AM
The Montana Supreme Court has upheld a Workers' Compensation Court ruling that about $65,000 in medical bills incurred by a man who was mauled while feeding the bears at a tourist attraction should be covered by workers' compensation, despite the fact the man had smoked marijuana on the day of the attack.

The Montana Supreme Court is so far out there on this, it is not funny.  The Justices who voted to uphold the lower court's ruling should be stripped of their robes.  No one, and I mean absolutely no one is entitled to Worker's Compensation for injuries sustained in a non-work related incident.

This individual was mauled by a bear while feeding it at a tourist attraction.  Not only was he feeding the bear he was doing so after having smoked Marijuana.

The only question that needed to be asked is, was this injury worker related?  If the answer is no, then no workers' comp for you.  It really is that simple.

What's the Constitution? Don't bother asking 70% of Americans: Alarming number of U.S. citizens don't know basic facts about their own country
By Rachel Quigley

Stumped: In the U.S. citizenship test, only 38 per cent of Americans passed and some didn't know answers to basic questions like who is the vice president?
First Christina Aguilera forgot the words to the national anthem.

Now it has emerged that 70 per cent of Americans do not know what the Constitution is, and six per cent don't even know when Independence Day falls.

Newsweek recently gave 1,000 Americans the U.S. Citizenship test and found that their knowledge of the history and running of their own country was seriously lacking.

Although the majority passed, more than a third - 38 per cent - failed, and some of the basic questions surrounding citizenship were answered incorrectly.

The U.S. citizenship test is administered to all immigrants applying for citizenship. It is comprised of 100 questions across five categories - American government, systems of government, rights and responsibilities, American history and integrated civics.

OPINION | MARCH 4, 2011
Public Broadcasting Should Go Private
by Jim Demint
When presidents of government-funded broadcasting are making more than the president of the United States, it's time to get the government out of public broadcasting.

While executives at the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR) are raking in massive salaries, the organizations are participating in an aggressive lobbying effort to prevent Congress from saving hundreds of millions of dollars each year by cutting their subsidies. The so-called commercial free public airwaves have been filled with pleas for taxpayer cash. The Association of Public Television Stations has hired lobbyists to fight the cuts. Hundreds of taxpayer-supported TV, radio and Web outlets have partnered with an advocacy campaign to facilitate emails and phone calls to Capitol Hill for the purpose of telling members of Congress, "Public broadcasting funding is too important to eliminate!"

Lifting the ban on ‘concurrent receipt’

Lifting the ban on ‘concurrent receipt’
The American Legion - March 4, 2011
Legislation has been introduced in both houses of the 112th Congress that would allow qualified military retirees to receive both their VA disability compensation and DoD pensions at the same time. Called “concurrent receipt,” the dollar-for-dollar offset of military retirement pay based on the amount of VA medical disability compensation one receives has long been opposed by The American Legion.

Concurrent receipt of retirement pay and disability compensation has been expanded in recent years, but it still does not apply to military retirees with service-connected disabilities rated less than 50 percent. The continuing practice of requiring disabled retirees to fund their own pensions is commonly known as the “disabled veterans tax.”

Feds come knocking for home inspections

Feds come knocking for home inspections
A sanitation district in Pennsylvania has notified homeowners that its representatives will be making personal visits to every structure served by its network of drainpipes because that's what the federal Environmental Protection Agency is demanding.

The letter informs homeowners the inspections will probably take only about 15 minutes, but that all properties "will be considered a source of clear water discharges until an inspection can be conducted."

The effort, according to officials at the Coplay Whitehall Sewer Authority, is to prevent water from sources such as sump pumps or downspouts from being channeled into a water treatment process.
