#OccupyWhiteHouse2012 – The hashtag for the rest of us

#OccupyWhiteHouse2012 – The hashtag for the rest of us

The silent majority.

The ones who pay the bills, and the taxes, and the tuitions, and the pensions, and the benefits, for the people who falsely claim to be the 99%.

The ones who did not graduate from the school of perpetual expectations and handouts.

The ones who falsely have been called terrorists and extremists and racists because they dared to object to trying the same socialist policies here that have failed everywhere they have been tried before.

The ones who showed up at the polls in 2010.

The ones who will show up at the polls in 2012:

The ones who are grateful.

The ones who have been poor, and who know how to live poor. And who know if you’re doing it wrong.

The ones who will not be so infantile so as to steal all the “O” keys from all the keyboards in the White House.

    Of course, on second thought, that would only make sense if Obama won his second term, after a four-year Republican interlude, in 2016.

“The silent majority

The ones who pay the bills …

The ones who falsely have been called terrorists …

The ones who showed up …

The ones who will show up …”

You mean … we are the ones we’ve been silently waiting for?

68% prefer less government with fewer services, lower taxes.

68% are the real tea party. Polls tell us what the percentages are, not a handful of rabble rousers that don’t even know what they are protesting. 99% confused, 1% paid activists … might describe these mobs.

Rush Limbaugh’s theory posited today. OWS is aimed at Romney.

1) Everyone including the LSM is laying off Romney hoping he will be the nominee. Both parties are involved but for different reasons.
2) The Dems will then tie Romney to those arch villains Wall Street after having Alinskied Wall Street thoroughly over the next several months.

That is a great theme, well supported by both logic and emotion.

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded- here and there, now and then- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.”

    Heinlein needs an update; “this is known as bad luck” needs to be replaced with:

    “The tiny minority is then further vilified while the government seizes more wealth and poverty deepens, until the condemnations devolve into utterly incoherent ranting.”

    And before too long, we’re going to see what happens next.

Where can I get one of those #OccupyWhiteHouse2012 bumper stickers ?

99%, eh? Delusions of grandeur, perhaps, or shopworn PR move?

I recall another bunch which used that same tactic ‘way back when; the Communists. (Maybe not another bunch; sounds like the same bunch.) Back when they were the minority party in the Kerensky government, they simply started calling themselves the majority party, or (in Russian) the “Big” party. Hence their name, the Bolsheviks. To increase their appeal to the international revolution of workers and farmers and coffee-house intellectuals they decided to drop the parochial Russian name in the early 1920s and changed to the Communist Party, under which moniker they are still beloved today.

This is so perfect – passing it on to everyone I can think of!

As I said, there is more to OWS than meets the eye or conventional wisdom.

Libertarian Wall Street Protesters Demand End to the Fed

“Obama Is Not the Answer

Libertarians also point out that – while the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee are trying to hijack the Wall Street protests – they have been part of the problem, not part of the solution.

They point out that Obama has appointed Wall Street insiders to all of his key economic posts, and accepted more money from Goldman Sachs and the other big Wall Street banks than anyone else (and is still raking it in). As such, despite his populist rhetoric, he’s with Wall Street, not the protesters. Indeed, he is Wall Street.

They point out that Obama has continued the process of turning the U.S. into a banana republic, and whether you call it communism, fascism or crony capitalism, Obama has been at least as bad as Bush.

They point out that Obama has been a wolf in sheep’s clothing, someone who thinks high levels of unemployment are good.

They point out that Obama has been more brutal than Bush and has destroyed our liberties even faster than Bush.

For these reasons, libertarians correctly state that re-electing Obama is not the answer. And they note that Ron Paul’s consistent, decades-long positions are much closer to the American peoples’ demands than Obama’s.

Postscript: Anyone who still thinks Obama will save us is high.

On the other hand, libertarians have been out of power for a long time. Neoliberals and Neoconservatives – two masks on a single face of corruption – have been in the driver’s seat for decades. Libertarians should welcome the protests as a chance to challenge the status quo, to promote liberty and to end the Fed – the chief enabler of corruption in our country today.

Folks dismissing the Occupy protests as being Obama propaganda or left-wing haven’t yet learned the facts, are blaming the fact that the mainstream Democratic party is trying to infiltrate the movement on the protesters, or are letting Fox, Drudge or other mainstream news sources blow a sub-set of the overall protests out of proportion. See this, this and this. Indeed, as the Associated Press notes, the protesters are fed up with BOTH mainstream parties.”

Will the Paulites, and the libertarian analysis take the day? Or is this progressives seeking cover. The clincher is that they all know Obama is in Wall Street’s pocket. But beware of the capacity of organized vanguards like hard leftists and unions to always prevail in a situation of mass action. They have the requisite background, experience and ruthlessness. Democratic centralism (Leninism) is a powerful tool.

Do you see how this analysis coincides with the Palin analysis? That is why they had to nullify her. And of course, yet again, she hit a political sweet spot dead on.

Silly decimal
point or 3,
They are the .099%

Dammit! Where can we get the #OccupyWhiteHouse2012 bumper stickers????
