The Angry Future Expat

The Awakening

Some things should not, indeed cannot, be ignored:

This matters.  This is important.

The merger between the U.S. government and the earth’s most powerful corporate interests was not a “hostile” takeover by any means.  The government, the TBTF banks, and other corporate interests use each other, they’re happy about it!, and because they do the political system in the U.S. becomes a little more corrupt each day.  Destroying any real democratic representation, destroying the little guy’s recourse to the courts, undermining the very fabric of our neighborhoods, and stripping the 99% of their voice.

The only question, or at least the only question that matters, is how to unwind this unholy combination.

As it stands, whether you’re a libertarian or a socialist, your preferred policies cannot be implemented. The crony capitalist ship of state will continue to steam toward the berg until the federal government is forced, through direct action, to rid itself of its corporate backers.  And the corporate sector is forced, through direct action, to stop pulling the levers of government for its own benefit.

I don’t know the endgame of this movement and, frankly, don’t want to.  All I know is that #occupywallstreet and occupytogether.org matter.  They matter a lot.  They deserve support.

    I hope that each and every one of those Wall Street criminals/financial thugs is diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer, in the next 4-6 months.

    22% of the Americans who are unemployed are there with them!!!! And no politicians are (because to run for office means you only care about yourself and/or enriching yourself – D vs. R is merely a grand, very expensive, charade).
    Jefferson would be proud – this is his DEMOCRACY, this is anti-bankster action at its best.

    Politicians and their whoremasters label the protestors “hippies,” “un-American,” engage in class warfare – it’s all been done and is now revealed for the spin it is. We are there with them, PhDs, veterans who cannot find jobs in the US after fighting22% of the Americans who are unemployed are there with them!!!!

    Label the protestors “hippies,” engage in class warfare – it’s all been done and is now revealed for the spin it is. We are there with them, PhDs, veterans who cannot find jobs in the US after fighting overseas, ex-law enforcement, ex-Wall Street, fired teachers, teachers fighting for pensions, factory workers outsourced, college kids with huge debt loads now doing “internships” at 25, etc. No, no more! Banksters got their bail outs and bonuses, CEOs and officers control DC and state legislatures through ALEC, the Chamber of Commerce, and their paid for politicians. No more. Corporations (and by that, the media only means the CEOs and officers) buy politicians and get legislatures to adopt their laws whole hog through ALEC. Well, that’s UNDEMOCRATIC. So corporate worker bees get outsourced, Bill Gates and others get their H-1B visas because they own Senators, and anyone who dares fight for fellow Americans is a “class warrior” or “hippie.” No, Jefferson would love this! This is true 1st Amendment stuff. PhDs, MBAs, JDs, MAs, high school degrees, doctors, lawyers, unemployed, farmers, vets, teachers, miners, etc., we are there and want our country back – now!
    Bring back Glass-Steagall and prosecute all those involved in the past and ongoing massive fraud that threatens our Nation; reward them all with lengthy prison sentences and forfeiture of their ill-gotten gains. And to any politician that seeks office merely to enrich himself and his cronies/family, you are everything the Founding Fathers warned us about, so don’t dare cloak yourself in their ideals. We are the average American – and we are on to your game and are done toeing the line. overseas, ex-law enforcement, ex-Wall Street, teachers, factory workers outsourced, outsourced management, college kids with huge debt loads now doing “internships” at 25, etc. No, no more!

    Koch Brothers can buy politicians, trade with Iran (that kills our troops overseas), and that’s not un-American?! Mitt Romney can outsource jobs and make millions from it, but that’s not un-American? Screw that noise.

    We are the 99% – and we are on to your games and are done toeing the line.
