    I am thankful for being a middle class person today instead of the richest person in the world 200 years ago I am thankful for being a middle class person today instead of the richest person in the world 200 years ago. I can have a real time conversation with someone who is 1,000 miles away. I have light bulbs. I can get from New York to California in hours instead of weeks. Antibiotics will save my life if I step on a rock and cut my foot. I don’t have to worry about getting smallpox, measles, or polio. I...

  • OOPS! Guy Who Led WHITE SUPREMACIST Group In Charlottesville Was Obama Supporter

    Is there anything more ironic than the media trying to pin racism on a white nationalist, who was also an Obama supporter and Occupy protestor. White supremacist and ‘Unite the Right’ leader, Jason Kessler, was once reportedly a supporter a former President Obama and the Occupy movement. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (an organization that is certainly no friend to Conservatives), Kessler revealed his political transformation around November 2016, the same month the candidate Donald Trump won the presidential election. Southern Poverty Law Center reports: “Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was...

    To all the Obama supporters who are shocked at his acceptance of a $400,000 Wall St. speaking fee: I TOLD YOU SO!!!!! First of all, let’s start out with this obligatory clip from Casablanca: that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I’d like to address all of the Obama supporters who are shocked at his acceptance of a $400,000 Wall St. speaking fee:I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!Specifically, I wrote:Although Obama claimed to support the Occupy Wall St. movement, the truth is that as of 2011, he had raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate during the previous 20...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 11/17/15 | Matthew Vadum
    The left-wing lynchers doing the president's bidding in the streets Barack Obama’s demagogic presidency has unleashed state-sanctioned mob violence to a degree not seen since the Jim Crow era. Obama-approved lynch mobs have been helping to force the fundamental transformation of America that the radical left-wing community organizer promised on the campaign trail in 2008. Creating little armies of malcontents has long been the way Obama’s fellow Marxist agitators have turned groups in society against each other in order to generate the civil unrest and societal instability needed to effect unwanted change. Sometimes thugs get things done that elections can’t....

    Men's Wearhouse executive chairman George Zimmer has been "terminated," the clothing retailer said on Wednesday. Zimmer opened the company's first store in Houston in 1973. He's been the bearded face of Men's Wearhouse (MW) in television ads for years, famously promising men "You're going to like the way you look. I guarantee it."

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | December 9, 2011 | Chip Johnson
    After two months of the Occupy movement, Oakland residents should adopt their own chant. We are the 98.5 percent. The 1 percent control the vast majority of the nation's wealth, possess influence in the highest halls of government, and profit from the misery of others. The one-half percent have taken to the streets. Then there's everyone else: the veritable Silent Majority who work and pay the bills and the taxes that make the wheels turn. Even though both sides of the conflict claim to have our backs, neither group, it seems, has our best interests at heart. Oakland Mayor Jean...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: If you'll recall, I and I alone, I believe, El Rushbo long ago predicted to you, or opined that the Occupy Wall Street movement was a creation of the regime's, because Romney is perceived as Wall Street. They want Romney, and they assume they're going to be running against Romney, and who could blame them. I mean, if you're the Obama regime and you take a look conservative media today, you would have to assume that the Republican Party also wants Romney. Okay, it's inevitable. So you gear up for Romney.
  • Protest This: Occupy Whatever and ACORN Search for a Few Fools

    In their stunning off-off Broadway debut, Occupy Whatever sure created a lot of mass- as in trash. 30 tons in LA, and more in New York City. And that’s just the trash they left behind, not the weight of the newsprint wasted on unsuccessfully explaining a movement to the American people that either absolutely had a definite platform or didn’t depending on the day, the hour, the park and the spokestree making the statement on behalf of Occupy Something.  But the Movement without a Cause isn’t quite dead yet- in fact it might be feeling much better now that they’ve...

    More than 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to a Midtown hotel on Wednesday night to protest a fund-raising event for President Obama. Escorted by police vehicles as they helped snarl traffic across the Times Square area, beginning at Bryant Park, the group settled in front of barricades on the southwest corner of 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue, in view of the Sheraton hotel at which Mr. Obama was expected to appear by 9 p.m. Demonstrators held signs that leveled some of the Occupy protest’s most pointed criticism to date of the president. “Obama is a corporate puppet,” one said....

    While necessity is the mother of invention, sloth and envy beget mediocrity and upheaval – the twin siblings of secular-socialism. It is in this vein that a rebellious and increasingly violent spirit of incoherent anarchy continues to fester in urban centers across the nation. This is most evident in the form of the envy-driven "Occupy wherever" nonsense embraced by the "progressive" establishment. Still, this Obama-supported effort to supplant, through lawless imposition, our free-market constitutional republic with some misguided conception of an outcome-based equalitocracy is rooted in much more than just good old-fashioned class warfare. Part and parcel of secular-socialism is...

    Gerri Field stood with hundreds of protesters in front of Tiffany's in Walnut Creek this week, railing against economic injustice at the top of her lungs and drawing approving honks from passing cars with her sign, "Heal America, Tax Wall Street." For two sunny midday hours, the crowd did its best to "occupy" the busiest intersection in town, Mount Diablo Boulevard and North Main Street, singing "This Land Is Your Land" and denouncing corporate greed and the ultrarich 1 percent.

  • World’s Largest Bank Pandering to Occupy Wall Street Movement

    ING, the world’s largest bank has either sided with the radical left-wing Occupy Wall Street movement or they are making the ultimate capitalist statement by trying to lure these extremists to their bank so they can bilk them for what little money they have. Either way, ING would have been better served marketing their services to people who actually have jobs, and therefore money, rather than wasting their time and money marketing to the bottom of the proverbial barrel. George Zimmer at the Men’s Wearhouse should have thought of that before he sided with people who will never wear suits....

    Repeating his questions to Mitt Romney and Rick Perry on whether companies can both be profitable and create jobs, CNBC's Jim Cramer followed up by asking former Speaker Newt Gingrich if companies can do both as well. Gingrich responded by slamming the media and Occupy Wall Street protesters for not understanding American history and Newt's view that apparently it's corporations that have made the United States the greatest country in the world.
  • Men’s Wearhouse Customer Returns Suit for Supporting Occupy Wall St.

    A friend of mine decided to let the Men’s Wearhouse know how he feels about their support of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. He returned a bag full of suits that he had purchased from them and captured the entire episode on video (see below). As you can see from the photograph, the Men’s Wearhouse in Oakland, California decided to place a sign in their window showing their support for the OWS movement. According to an article by Ed Morrissey over at Hot, Men’s Wearhouse founder George Zimmer is financial supporter of President Obama and the socialist Democratic...

    Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch. This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank. Wells Fargo spokesman Ruben Pulido went out of his way on Monday to notify reporters about this development via email. “If this report is true,” he wrote, “it demonstrates that even Occupy Oakland understands — firsthand — the value and service that Wells Fargo provides its customers.

(Adam Ragusea/WBUR) Harvard University students and demonstrators from Occupy Boston protested outside of Gregory Mankiw's economics course. (Adam Ragusea/WBUR) It’s a long hike from the mud-caked tents of Dewey Square to the polished wood and stained glass of Harvard University’s Memorial Hall, but on Tuesday, Occupy Boston came to campus. And they brought their Occupy-style call-and-response. “Oh my god, this is a lot of people,” organizer...
  • Parasite Devouring the Host; What Occupy Wall Street is All About

    If you want to know what the Occupy Wall Street movement is about; this is it! The American Taxpayer has awakened from its slumber and come to the realization that we can no longer afford all of these “pie in the sky” welfare programs. We’ve saddled future generations with nearly $15 trillion in debt and what do we have to show for it. The parasitic scum who live off these welfare programs now face the grim reality that they are actually going to have to work to subsist. When you back a foul and loathsome creature into a corner it...
