Fox News had Breaking News this AM that the "occupy wall street" protests are now happening all over the world. They had a live video of Rome where they were starting fires.
According to one protester "The food shows up, and we eat it"
GEEZ my eyesight is getting bad!!!
please fix the text “protests are NOW happening all over the world”
There were more 13-year-old girls trying to see Taylor Swift at Macy’s yesterday than their are OWS protestors in NY.
“...proteats are not happening...”
I have been pro teat for as long as I can remember.
Oh well if “proteats” are going worldwide then I’m going to brew another pot of coffee.
Tea Party Member: They certainly are.
How much investigation do you need? It's David Axelrod, and this is Obama 2012.
I'm kinda biased towards amateur teats - they're usually in better shape.
OOPS forgot the story..
There has been much speculation over who is financing the disparate protest, which has spread to cities across America and lasted nearly four weeks. One name that keeps coming up is investor George Soros, who in September debuted in the top 10 list of wealthiest Americans. Conservative critics contend the movement is a Trojan horse for a secret Soros agenda.
Soros and the protesters deny any connection. But Reuters did find indirect financial links between Soros and Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests with an inventive marketing campaign aimed at sparking an Arab Spring type uprising against Wall Street. Moreover, Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground.
Yes, They stink on ice
Hey OWS idiots... Obama raked in more money from Wall Street than any politician in the past 20 years:
Take a look, OWS, at all of that big bank money, and money from BoA.
The protests are not bothering me much. They don’t amount to squat and they are in the wrong place.
They should be protesting the Democrats and President Obama.
When they get under my feet and the feet of real Americans, these kids will get stomped on, hard.
A bunch of College Socialised kids and Communist older folks who never worked a day.
Are any Freepers in NYC? The weather is supposedly cold, rainy and stormy. Not one word in the media about OWS today.
And OWS has no live video stream today.
“bump for later read”. ;-)
The violence will be in our streets too. Just a matter of time. Obama, Hoffa and the democrats own this. They called for it, they supported and they condoned it.
My first job was in 1983 hoeing weeds in an almond orchard. I then sorted tomtaoes in a canary before moving on to dishwasher at a breakfast restaraunt . You see, I didn't envy the rich when I was young, I was never too good to do any job and was always grateful for the opportunities I found.
I had no skills!! Why wouldn't I work for minimum wage? I eventually got a job delivering screws, nuts, and bolts. From there I started at community college. In time, I transferred to a university. Delivering nuts and bolts was getting to be a drag so I got a job as a stock room person in the chemistry department. At this job, I met someone who got me in a part-time job as a technician at a start-up company. I finished my degree and went full time at the start-up company. I used the money from this job to put my eventual wife through vet school. When my wife graduated from vet school, she put me through graduate school where I got a PhD in chemistry.
This all started with a crappy minimum wage job working in the fields!! When my wife and I met we had maybe $2000 between us and two crappy cars. The point is not that I'm something special. The point is that I'm not something special!!! My kids are now in there late teens and always tell my them one of the best lessons I learned was: In life, you'll always find exactly what you're looking for. If you look for success you'll find it. If you look for excuses you'll find that just as easily. Choose wisely!!! The Wall Street Protesters are looking for excuses and they've found them with the encouragement of our own President. I told my son that's good news for him because now he'll have less people getting in the way when he's looking for success.
Well, there is finally proof that some Blackberry text is making it through . . . .
It's as "spontaneous" as what happened at Kent State. And it's the same sort of people behind it.
"the purpose of all this agitation at Kent State was to recruit as much cannon fodder as possible, and then to provoke a "major confrontation." When it came, it would be neither accidental nor spontaneous. It would be exactly what the revolutionaries wanted.
On April 8, 1969, S.D.S. toughs marched through various campus buildings, disrupting classes as planned, chanting "Ho, Ho, Ho chi Minh," and striking campus police officers. One of these hoodlums pleaded nolo contendere to a charge of assault and battery, and drew a fine and jail sentence. The university scheduled a disciplinary hearing for two others on April sixteenth, at which time about one hundred revolutionaries smashed into the Music and Speech building where the hearing was being held, destroyed property, and again attacked police officers. Of the fifty-eight demonstrators arrested, ten were not even students at the school. At the rally preceding the march on the disciplinary hearing, non-student Jim Mellen told the audience as follows: "We're no longer asking you to come and help us make a revolution. We're telling you that the revolution has begun, and the only choice you have to make is which side you're on. And we're also telling you that if you get in the way of the revolution, it's going to run right over you." Mr. Mellen's remarks were included in a liberally distributed S.D.S. pamphlet, which began with a quotation from Mao Tse-tung and the following warning: "The war is on at Kent State University ...."
At a meeting in Williams Hall on April 28, 1969, revolutionary Communist Bernardine Dohrn said that people fighting "oppression" would have to carry weapons for "self defense." On May sixth, at another campus rally, Joyce Cecora called for armed rebellion: "They used guns at Cornell and they got what they wanted. It will come to that here!" And at still another rally on campus on May twenty-second, S.D.S. member Rick Skirvin said this: "We'll start blowing up buildings, we'll start buying guns, we'll do anything to bring this motherf***er down."
Michener quotes a student named Ken Tennant as follows: "With me it goes back to the music festival they held at Fred Fuller Park in September, 1969. Four Weathermen came down from Chicago, with insignia on their bib overalls. They were selling their organization newspaper, and I said, 'I'll buy a copy if you'll tell me what your outfit stands for.' They said, 'We're going to destroy this corrupt American society and build a better.' I asked how, and they explained, 'We've decided to close down schools all over the nation. We're going to start in Chicago. But we have our eye on Kent State, too. It could be ripe.' "
Bear in mind that we have room here to cite only a few examples of the inflammatory agitation and propaganda on the campus at Kent State for almost two years. The evidence establishesin the words of the revolutionariesthat the goal of S.D.S. was to provoke a violent confrontation in which somebody would be hurt, or even worse.
And the most incredible such example took place on April 10, 1970, when Jerry Rubin spoke on the campus at Kent State. Jerry Rubin is a Communist, of course. We can be absolutely sure of that because he has said so repeatedly. In fact he said he was a Communist when your reporter asked him about it at the Democrat National Convention in Miami in 1972. At that Convention Rubin also said that, when he and his Comrades take over, your reporter will be gassed. At Kent State, Communist Jerry Rubin said this: "The first part of the Yippie program is to kill your parents. And I mean that quite literally, because until you're prepared to kill your parents, you're not ready to change this country. Our parents are our first oppressors."
Your first reaction on reading a thing like this, of course, is that maybe I have taken it out of context. You refuse to believe that anybody would say this. But Rubin really told the students what you just read. It is important to remember that, at the time, Jerry Rubin was a convicted criminalhe had been convicted for leading the turmoil at the 1968 Democrat National Convention in Chicago, where terrorists attacked the policewhich raises the question of how such a man could be permitted to address students on a university campus in Ohio.**
Rubin also told the Kent State students to burn down the suburbs. "The American school system will be ended in two years," he explained. "We are going to bring it down. Quit being students. Become criminals. We have to disrupt every institution and break every law. We should have more laws so we can break them, too. Everybody should have their own law to break." As for the campus itself, Comrade Rubin told the students to ignore their professors, and to "burn all the books. It's quiet here now but things are going to start again."
The campus was now ready. Almost two years of intensive Communist propaganda had their effect. A sufficient number of students was willing to serve as cannon fodder for the revolutionary "cause." The Communists needed only an excuse to provoke their "major confrontation." Three weeks later they got their excuse.
"...it is important to quote at length from the state grand jury report on the affair: "Fifty-eight Guardsmen were injured by rocks and other objects hurled at them as they moved across the 'Commons' to Taylor Hall Hill and down to the practice football field, and were then forced to retreat .... it is clear that from the time the Guard reached the practice football field, they were on the defensive and had every reason to be concerned for their own welfare .... The circumstances present at that time indicate that 74 men surrounded by several hundred hostile rioters were forced to retreat back up the hill toward Taylor Hall under a constant barrage of rocks and other flying objects, accompanied by a constant flow of obscenities and chants such as 'Kill, Kill, Kill.' Photographic evidence has established, beyond any doubt, that as the National Guardsmen approached the top of the hill adjacent to Taylor Hall, a large segment of the crowd surged up the hill, led by smaller groups of agitators approaching to within short distances of the rear ranks of the Guardsmen.
"The testimony of the students and Guardsmen is clear that several members of the Guard were knocked to the ground or to their knees by the force of the objects thrown at them. ..."

Friggin lame street liberal leftist snooze media is seriously trying to pump this anti-Capitalist, pro-Communist movement.
Thanks for answer that..
Soros should be brought up on charges of inciting insurrection. He is attempting to cause economic mayham and overthrow the US government.
Its only a matter of time until one of these groups cranks up their fight song “The Internationale”, which as we all know is really the anthem for World Wide Communism.
The simple and obvious fact that this “confiscate wealth from those we envy and hate” Protest has gone International proves that this is a collectivist march to One World Communism. Its like the World Workers Union has all gone out and activated at the same time.
1. Soros collapses currencies AND regimes (Britain)
2. He has funded revolutions in the Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Georgia
3. He staged coups in Slovakia, Croatia, and Yugoslavia
4. He wants to overturn the US. “He has said it himself on a number of occasions that, ‘what I have done in terms of overturning bad governments, I am going to do in this country.”
5. He has the support of Hilary Clinton - who has said “Our country needs us. We need people like George Soros who is fearless and willing to step up when it counts.”
6. The “Shadow Party” that he has created in the US is modeled after the “Shadow Party” he created in other countries, shortly before he instigated a coup. The Center for American Progress is one of the first of his “Shadow Party” groups. What's their job? Gain control of the conservative media.
7. George Soros’ real name was George Schwartz.
8. He's going to take down the United States of America. “The biggest threat to a stable world order is the U.S.”
9. Soros has visited the Obama Whitehouse at least 4 times.
10. Soros has repeatedly called for the devaluation of the dollar.
11. Soros wants the world to be a global society without individual governments, and with one global gatekeeper. Guess who!
And that's all from the first 7 minutes! See why we had to stop watching?
Watch the terrifying 7 minutes:
To this day, I am unconvinced that a Guardsman fired the first shot. The revolutionaries tried their best to get their hands on or create weapons. It’s really hard to think that Dohrn and Ayres, Mme LaFarge and Robespierre wannabes, still walk around free in this country.
Real bullets aren’t part of crowd control now. Revolutionaries still want people dead...and are willing to play idealists for fools AND SET THEM UP TO BE PATSIES. Worked for Oswald.
"Gleeful about the raging riots that held England captive this week, the tweet has gone out to activists and disaffected youth to occupy wall street Sept 17 today. Social Networks FaceBook and Twitter are abuzz with plans for coming anarchy on U.S. soil.
The Days of Rage will continue beyond the occupation of Wall Street with activists being told bring your tent.
The original "Day(s) of Rage"
Days of Rage riots (1969)
The Days of Rage riots in Chicago took place over a 4-day period beginning October 8, 1969, after members of the Weathermen, a militant offshoot of the Students for a Democratic Society, converged on the city to confront police in the streets in response to the trial of the group of anti-Vietnam War activists known as the "Chicago Eight".

A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.
"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:
Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.
The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.
"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."
"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English..."
The O'Reilly Factor confronts Bill Ayers:
October 24, 2008:
(note the red communist star, and anarcho-syndicalist red and black, on his shirt)
Bill Ayers: "I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean, I'm as much an anarchist as I am a Marxist which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."
"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at"
--Bill Ayers (1970), quoted in New York Times, September 11, 2001:

"Dig It. First they killed those pigs [ie, rich people], then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victims stomach! Wild!"

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:
"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, confirm the connections between Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders like Mark Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in Marxist philosophy and urban warfare."

(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
There's a sign in the picture?
Sorry, I don’t find commie revolutionaries very appealing. And I certainly wouldn’t want to give them the satisfaction of such a compliment even if I did.
Need I remind all of you that the one effect all those protests in the late 60’s was that it led to the
“empowerment” of the so-called silent majority and thus cause the election of a Republican President.
That’s an excellent post. BRAVO to you and your family.
Almond orchard? Central valley in CA?
You had $2000 between you two when you got married? That would have been a fortune to my husband and I when we got married in 1955 as it would be to a lot of people here. We had my paycheck ($50 gross weekly) and his mustering out pay from the USMC. College for him on the GI bill and that was $100 a month.
These creeps protesting have no clue!!! And the ones reporting on it don’t either!
According to New York’s Daily News it’s a Global Event worth reporting ...
I'd love to help him relive that moment
Hey! Let's do a re-enactment!
