Ladies & gentlemen, you simply can’t make this stuff up. For nigh on three weeks a disheveled and motley mob of miscreants, malcontents, and various liberal spoonfed swine have been protesting (as their ilk is wont to do every time they get bored or George Soros orders them out) up on Wall Street. I’m somewhat amused by these sniveling morons who think bringing down the corporations who provide jobs & goods & services will create jobs, goods, and services. What the hell happened to this country?
Of course, like good little liberal socialist zombies, they can’t hold a peaceful protest without getting arrested or littering the place up. In my love of Schadenfreude, I find the irony delicious in that liberal socialists protesting for liberal socialism are being arrested by cops represented by a liberal union (the NYC Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, who used to bump heads badly with Rudy Guiliani) in a liberal socialist city run by a liberal socialist mayor in a liberal socialist state run by a liberal socialist governor.
So, a fortnight and a half into this neo-communist proletarian uprising, one of their spokesidiots has released a list of demands. (With the occasional dose of bad grammar that I purposely left in there). Typical terrorist/hostage-taker tactic. However, to quote one of the Internet’s trendy memes that these kids love so much, “Your Argument Is Invalid”.
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.
Moron…the higher you raise the minimum wage, the more minimum wage jobs you create. That also forces people who are actually worth 20 bucks an hour to be paid more since higher compensation is a reward for expertise, experience, and ability. Nobody currently dropping fries at Wendy’s is worth 20 bucks an hour. And if the fry-dropper at Wendy’s is scoring 20 an hour, best prepare for a $14.95 burger, because they’ll have to raise prices in order to pay the workers.I will, however, applaud the sentiment of promoting domestic businesses. Perhaps if tax-happy liberals would lower the business taxes in this country we’d stop sending US jobs overseas? YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
WHAT? Who do you propose pays for this, you dunce? Most of Europe is in the crapper from paying for “free” healthcare and other entitlement schemes. How about we overhaul the existing system so that a freakin’ aspirin doesn’t cost 300 bucks instead of paying for welfare cases to drag their 7 kids from 7 different babydaddies to the ER for a runny nose. And doctors might charge a little less if it weren’t for sky-high malpractice insurance from the sue-happy lawsuit crowd. The US healthcare system is the best in the world; that’s why all these foreign bigwigs come here instead of relying on the free systems in their own countries. You get what you pay for. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.
So, what you’re saying is some magical fairy godmother is gonna pay you 20 bucks an hour for not having a job? Not sure if you’ve ever been told what a wage is, chummy. It’s what they pay you when you WORK. A wage is a compensation, usually financial, received by workers in exchange for their labor. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand four: Free college education.
Look…college means squat anymore. So many people have a degree that the playing field is pretty damned level. Used to be that when very few people could go to college it meant more to have a degree. Now we have kids graduating with degrees unable to find work, and competing for precious few jobs with 9000 other applicants for one job that all 9001 of them are qualified for because they all have the same degree and zero experience. So, like the bulk of their peers they end up taking whatever job they can and end up in a field that has nada to do with their degree, like the guy I know with a business degree from USC who watches a robot make toilet paper. Besides, twits like you get useless, unmarketable degrees in esoteric crap like Art History, Philosophy, and . YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
Well, you a-hole liberals won’t let us continue with nuclear energy and you insist on crap like solar and wind power that costs more to generate than it saves...energy that is more expensive to generate than it’s worth to be viable. Green energy and global warming and climate change…great scam, I tell ya’. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
And you’re paying for this HOW? Oh, that’s right; Obama’s Secret Stash. His magic wallet that drops a trillion here, a trillion there, with no repercussions. Our grandkids are already in debt so why not their grandkids too? Besides, your idiot President has a piss poor track record with shovel-ready infrastructure programs. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
You buffoon. Again with the trillion. See above. How do propose we reestablish wetlands? Kick out everyone who lives there and flood their property? Oh wait, you want the rivers to flow like they used to so you must intend on blowing the dams & just drowning everyone. You dolt. And once we shut down the nuke plants, do you propose we put all the unemployed workers on welfare? Do we burn acorns to replace the energy the plants generated? And what do we do with a sudden glut of spent uranium rods? YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.
Last I checked, men & women of all colors are covered under the Constitution. Nowhere does it say freedom of speech unless you’re a women, or freedom of the press unless you’re Asian. I know of no current statutes or laws denying rights to any particular race or gender based solely on race or gender. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Our borders are already more porous than a sponge so we get invaded daily by illegals who don’t bother to ask if they can come here and seek jobs, have anchor babies, and get in-state college tuition, among other benefits. And hey, chummy, there’s no secret police stopping CITIZENS from traveling or working in any given state. Every day millions upon millions of us travel across state lines without black-clad agents of the Feral Gubmint asking for your papers. Perhaps you want open borders to walk across to Mexico and seek a job there? Fat chance. They do more to punish illegals in their country according to their laws than we do. Or are you just looking to go over & score some cheap dope? YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
Are you serious? Bring our elections UP to international standards? The same standards that freely elected the likes of Castro, Khadaffi, Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, Bashar Assad, Hosni Mubarek, and Pervez Musharraf? Paper ballots? How primitive. I see someone’s been watching too many episodes of “Survivor”. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
Man, those are some good drugs you’re on. This is so absurd I can’t even begin to break it all down. You basically want to collapse the entire world financial system. You’re an idiot, and YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.
See above. This just highlights the fact that you more or less just want to steal goods & services without having to pay for them. Or suffer any consequences for being a mooch. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
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.
Screw you and your unions. I know a guy in radio who was forced, and I mean FORCED as in “if you work here you MUST join these unions” to be in three different unions as a radio host in Chicago. They couldn’t bang a cymbal live on the air unless they had a representative from the local musician’s union there in the studio with them. Unions with their monopolies have an iron grip on most liberal leftist cities to where you can’t get anything done unless you hire union labor at extortion prices. Thankfully I live in a Right To Work state that doesn’t force a worker to join a union in order to have a job. Joining a union here is a choice, not a requirement. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID
These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.
Oh, please. The only jobs this administration has created are Czars and other government wonks. And after next November, he’ll be unemployed too.
Lloyd J Hart 508-687-9153
Really, Lloyd? Your phone number? Or does it just go to an answering machine in your parents’ basement, where you’re usually blaming The Evil Bush and playing World of Warcraft?
Look, you blockheads are unemployed due to the policies & actions of the idiot you elected and his lackeys. Sure, some of the blame can be traced back to progressive big-government GOP types and RINOs but by & large, you’re now sleeping in the bed you made. You protest corporations but show up in expensive Columbia jackets toting expensive North Face backpacks with your expensive MacBooks and iPads and iPods, slurping your foamy little extra skinny triple Caramel MoltoVentiMegaGrandeMochaMacchiato drinks from Starbucks, littering the precious ground of the Gaia Mother Earth with your wrappers and sign debris as you protest the corporations that you buy stuff from and that would otherwise gainfully employ you, you morons. Nice mooching of the free wireless too…oh wait, those Internet providers you rely on are corporations too…..
Self-described , admitted Marxists, Socialists, Communists, and Anarchists with your imbecile “V For Vendetta” masks…I can’t say that I have ever attended a Tea Party function where people wore masks to hide their identities. In the early days you had the occasional over-the-top person in a Colonial tri-corner hat or Statue of Liberty get-up but that goofiness was taking away from the message, and we all just look like normal every day folks, not hooded, masked, criminals. We’re not afraid to show the world our faces; then again we’re not prone to looting or busting shop windows. You people can’t get more than 3 of you together to sing “Happy Birthday” without getting arrested, while we had hundreds of thousands gather in DC and elsewhere for rally after rally with no arrests and left the places cleaner than when we arrived.
Great quotes were heard this week too. One genius said “We’re going to Hell in a handbasket, whatever a handbasket is…” Um, it’s a basket you carry in your hand, moron. Another victim of inbreeding trying to tread water in the shallow end of the gene pool stated “They’re turning our Democracy into a Capitalism”…Man, great sentence structure. A single Capitalism, huh? Not just capitalism, but “a” Capitalism. And for the umpteen millionth time, dummy, we live in a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, not a Democracy. And perhaps the best summation of the lunacy on Wall Street comes from this guy, who sounded on the radio like a burnout hippy from the 60s: “It’s all about bein’ and lovin’…”
Yeah, sure. Smoke another one, pal.
LIKE, OH MY GAWD! THEY STOLE MY BRA!!!!!!
Yeah...peaceful liberals indeed.....
Hmmm, unless you were giving away free bad haircuts, this makes you a CAPITALIST!
This was the best you could do for a sexy spokesperson for your cause?
Capitalism works. Lazy-assed liberals don't. You have the right to pursue happiness. Happiness is not a guarantee.
Oh, looky: laptops made by a corporation. Coke made by a corporation. Prissy bottled water made by a corporation. Smokes made by a corporation.
WTF does the execution of a convicted cop killer have to do with this?
I'm broke but I have tattoo money.....
Awww...feeling all hopey changey.....
Who gave the bailouts? THE LIBERALS!!!
And this last poor delusional sack of stupid...well, she just ices the cake.
