Remember these people marching are Marxists and Communists!
Whoever sits in the White House will have to contend with the 'Occupy Wall Street' and the 'Tea Party' together protesting the ever worse economic conditions . These protests are all on the same lines of thought . No Taxes , More Jobs , Immigration , Fairness, cut Spending , get out of Iraq & Afghanistan . Any one who thinks that any of these Tea Party People are any different than the wild or almost hippie like Occupiers are wrong . Glenn Beck said that the Occupy movement is made up of Marxists jocks , I disagree with Beck . May be he needs to go to one of the these Occupy protests and hear what they are saying then go to one of the Tea Party gatherings , and Lo! we have a connection . These two groups are Fed Up with how things are running . Protesting the Banks , Wall Street is not just an option but I see the sense of it . Since Washington Bailed out the Banks with trillions of Tax payer money to save them from collapsing into a depression like state . The *****Kind Banks returned to their original practice of foreclosing on homeowners pushing people out of their homes . The Big ( Business ) billionaires who could create jobs here in America , and mind you as I rant here . They just packed up their Big Businesses and off-shored a host of jobs overseas , all because they don't want to pay and American a decent wage . I would have to say WAKE AMERICA , maybe we all need to protest and GET the American dream back .The Beginning Is Near! proclaimed one early sign at New York City’s Liberty Plaza, which since September 17 has been held by a coalition of activists under the Occupy Wall Street banner. In the early days of the action, many on the professional left doubted that Occupy Wall Street would be the beginning of anything. “Another day, another demo…” some shrugged, weary from years of protests that never seem to stop another war, another robbery of the poor by the rich. In Washington, for two frustrating years, the debate has been focused on how much austerity to have—the slash-and-burn policies of the Republican Party or the austerity-lite measures of President Obama. ( $ )More stimulus, we were told, was a nonstarter. Hope seemed a distant, perhaps false, memory .But what does Occupy Wall Street want? Whether with condescension or curiosity, that is the question being posed to the young people whose brilliant act of symbolic politics has landed them in the spotlight. Wisely, they are taking their time answering it. So far they have put out only one statement, which isn’t a list of demands so much as an indictment of the corporate state: “We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.”.
NOTES & COMMENTS:
*****Goldman Sachs alone in 2010 gave John Boehner $100,000.00.
What did they get for that kind of money? Read on.
"Banks are mobilising a smooth-running lobbying machine in Washington to battle Barack Obama's plans to limit the size and scope of Wall Street institutions, as financial services firms gear up to stop a shake-up that could slice away large chunks of their operations.Their influence on Capitol Hill is broad – the top eight US banks spent $26m (£16m) on lobbying efforts last year, an increase of 6% on 2008 despite their financial woes, according to Congressional records. And in the first 10 months of 2009, the financial industry donated $78.2m to federal candidates and party committees – more than any other business sector – according to political research institute the Centre for Responsive Politics."

($) President Obama : announced plans to give away billions of dollars to alternative energy companies, the lobbyists came running toward Washington.Billionaire entrepreneurs T. Boone Pickens and Ted Turner were just the latest to make the trip. The duo delivered a joint talk in the capital city Tuesday about their alternative energy investments, and both made it clear they were there looking for handouts.For the past three years, legendary oilman T. Boone Pickens has crossed the country selling a plan to eliminate America’s reliance on foreign energy sources through domestic natural gas production and wind energy.He just needs $5 billion of your dollars to do it.“This is all the help I want. I want a billion dollars a year for five years and then kill it,” Pickens said, describing the amount of public money he’ll need through tax credits to get his plan off the ground. “Five billion dollars.”More specifically, Pickens is busy lobbying for a bill — HR 1380 — which is currently sitting in committee and if passed would provide the billions he’s requesting. Sponsored by Oklahoma Republican Rep. John Sullivan, the legislation would change the Internal Revenue Code to give tax credits to entrepreneurs like Pickens who invest in the renewable energy business.
