And So It Begins…

"We think the Progressives will take care of us!"

I have been tussling with the Wall Street protests.  While I like that some of the protestors correctly blame the banks for the mess we are in, most seem quite clueless as to who they want to blame and what they want to accomplish.  They just know they are mad.  And this is exactly what the Progressives have been waiting for.  Progressives like Obama, Reid & Pelosi.  Class warfare is the answer to all the progressive democrats woes.  Forget that it is Obama’s complete and utter failure to lead, his doomsday predictions about the economy right from the beginning (which is not such a good idea for a currency based not on gold, but on perception of value) and his disastrous economic policies.  The ignorant youth has heard the rallying cry of socialism.  Government is not to blamePeople with money are to blame.  And government should force the rich people to give their money to those who don’t have it, didn’t earn it and have no right to it.

The progressives have been calling on violent protests for years.  Obama has accommodated them beautifully by wreaking havoc with the American economy and dollar.  This is right out of the Saul Alinsky book of socialist revolution:

“There’s another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don’t encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let’s not let it happen by default.[2]

According to Alinsky, the organizer — especially a paid organizer from outside — must first overcome suspicion and establish credibility. Next the organizer must begin the task of agitating: rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy. This is necessary to get people to participate. An organizer has to attack apathy and disturb the prevailing patterns of complacent community life where people have simply come to accept a situation. Alinsky would say, “The first step in community organization is community disorganization.”

As is the destruction of the family unit, patriotism and faith in God.  Break these backbones and you will have one unhappy group of citizens.  When the time is right, tell those frustrated people to blame the rich.  An easy target.  And wha-lah!  You have a nice revolution fomenting.

But they are headless, brainless and in wont of guidance.  In step the knowledgable leaders.  To ‘help’ these angry mobs to get what they want.  They are organized.  They are smart.  They’ve done it before.

They are the unions.

Yes, the unions have officially taken control of the so-called March on Wall Street.  They are supplying blankets, food and organization support.  Not to mention more protestors.

With Obama’s head on the line as the 2012 election gets rolling, it is really a surprise or coincidence that these class warfare protests have begun?  No.  We conservatives have predicted this for the last year.  It is, literally, the only way for the progressives (and Obama) to go.  With Cain rising to prominence and with a country wary of Obama, they need some serious news time.  And they need to shape the message of these protestors lest they look like a bunch of silly, dope smoking college kids.   And God forbid, prevent them from ‘going right’ and insisting on the end of the Federal Reserve and Bank influence in politics.  No, they need to swing these people left.  Convince them that it is not the banks’ & government’s fault- but the rich PEOPLE’s fault.  Oh, sure, they surround Chase Morgan Bank and chant while those fat cat bankers lick their whiskers in delight.  Because these protests are calling on more power for the Federal Reserve over smaller banks.  Allowing the plebeians to surround one of the major owners of the Federal Reserve (Chase Morgan) provides a nice little alibi for the naïve.  Of course, the naïve will also refuse to believe Obama’s connection to these protests.  And since the media is 100% controlled by the same people who put Obama into power to begin with,  they will be sure to milk this with every camera they have.  Ad nauseam.  As I’ve mentioned in other articles, the cycle is complete.  Unions, Banks, Media and Politicians have all been bought and paid for.  Real information is impossible to get, unless you go to the Internet.  And that is in grave danger with Lieberman’s Cybersecurity Bill.   You wait.  Their hope is that the rest of America will begin to believe that the malaise of a tiny group of beatniks represents the heart and soul of the nation.  That these protests will link Wall Street to the Republicans.  And hence, win the election in 2012.  Violence is the only way to distract Americans from the conservative message.  There must be blood and there will be blood.  The media control has prepped the population.  We are ripe for revolution.

Let us see where this takes us, fellow Americans.  Will Americans hold their own against the upcoming media onslaught? Will they see it for what it is?  Or have we truly become the spoiled brats that these socialists believe we have become? If the latter, we have begun the ultimate transformation of our nation.  We have been put firmly on Saul Alinsky’s road toward socialism, total government control and ultimately, will be forced to take the mark of the beast.  But it will look and feel normal- I mean, what is so different between a national ID card and a little implanted chip like the one my dog has?  Pray America.  Pray.

    Capitalism does not exploit people it gives them jobs so that they can support themselves and their families.

    I am talking about prostitutes and drug dealers because they make a lot of money and don’t pay taxes on it. This is what a sales tax could do is to have them pay taxes on purchases so that they would end up paying taxes.

    Our country was not founded upon slavery, it came later and yes we got rid of it. Our country was founded on capitalism. Socialism really exploits people and as I said, we are done. You are so far out there in left field you are not reachable./

    I respect your right to be wrong. The problem with the lower half not paying taxes
    is the socialist system of sliding scale for taxes. There should be one tax rate for
    all in a true democracy. Say 10% if you make a million dollars a year or $50 grand a year
    everyone should pay the same rate with no deductions. We could balance the budget
    and reduce the size of government particularly the IRS

    • Perhaps. I could see my way to a flat income/wealth tax. NOT a flat consumption tax. A flat tax on work hours DOES treat everyone’s life as the same worth.

      We still need to do away with capitalism though as it’s a form of exploitation the same as slavery was a form of exploitation.

      • Sorry Scott
        Our country was founded on capitalism and I will fight you to the death if you tried to do away with it. Not that many other people would tolerate such a bad idea either except some far left libs who operate on feelings and emotions rather than facts and logic.

        As far as consumption tax that gets to all the crooks who never report income like prostitutes and drug dealers or do you think that they should not have to pay taxes either?

        I think that we are done here.

      • Fight me to the death?? Over the ability to exploit another. You are a sad little man.

        What are you talking about prostitutes and drug dealers for?

  3. Scott let me answer you with an editorial from Investors Business Daily whose sole interest is bettering our economy and creating jobs.

    There’s No Dearth Of Job-Creating Ideas

    Posted 10/14/2011 06:46 PM ET

    Jobs: President Obama routinely claims that Republicans haven’t offered any jobs plan. Not true. It’s just that Obama ignores any idea that doesn’t involve more federal spending, meddling and taxes.

    When President Obama called House Majority Leader John Boehner on Thursday to congratulate him for getting three trade deals passed, Boehner gave Obama an earful for repeatedly charging the GOP with jobs negligence.

    On Thursday, for example, Obama said, “I’m hoping that they actually put forward some proposals that indicate that they feel that sense of urgency about … needing to put people back to work right now.”

    Boehner helpfully reminded Obama that the House actually did put out a jobs plan in May — called “The House Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators” — and that his leadership team had several talks with Obama and his staff about it, according to Politico.

    Also Thursday, Senate Republicans released their own jobs proposal, which means that Republicans now have twice as many jobs plans as Obama.

    Obama’s disinterest in these plans shows just how far out of the mainstream he’s drifted. After all, most of the GOP’s job-growth ideas — regulatory reform, tax reform, more energy production and fiscal restraint — have been proposed by Obama’s own advisers.

    Obama’s jobs council, for example, issued a report on Oct. 11 saying that “we need to do much more” to rein in regulatory burdens. “Regulatory reform can’t be a fad or a flavor of the month,” the report said. “Real change won’t come with a one-off push.”

    Yet Obama’s jobs bill does nothing to relieve regulatory burdens, and Obama airily dismissed Republican calls for regulatory relief, saying: “Does anybody really think that that is going to create jobs right now and meet the challenges of a global economy?”

    Meanwhile, Obama’s debt commission and his earlier Economic Recovery Advisory Board called for significant tax changes. The debt commission, in fact, said tax reform was vital to “make America the best place to start a business and create jobs.”

    But while Republicans have put forward comprehensive changes that lower rates and broaden the tax base, Obama’s jobs plan adds more complexity and attacks job creators with higher rates.

    When it comes to energy, Obama himself once argued that expanding access to the vast supplies of domestic oil and gas would create jobs.

    Back in March 2010, for example, he said that “in order to sustain economic growth and produce jobs and keep our businesses competitive, we are going to need to harness traditional sources of fuel even as we ramp up production of new sources.” So why does this no longer count as a job creation idea?

    Obama’s debt panel argued in December that “our businesses will not be able to grow and create jobs … without a plan to get this crushing debt burden off our back.” The GOP agrees. Yet Obama’s reckless $447 billion “jobs bill” would make that goal harder to achieve.

    If Obama really wants good job creating ideas, all he needs to do is open his eyes.

    • Mr. Wilder, the article you posted seems to be an attack against President Obama. Please don’t ask me to defend Obama. As I said earlier, he’s too right wing for me. He’s not the person I’ll be voting for in the next presidential election.

  4. Yes I went to grad school and there were a lot of lefty pointy headed lib professors there who
    did not function well in the real world. There were a lot of hippy communes in the seventies that folded because they tried to live a Marxist lifestyle. I say you should definitely study Marxism as a philosophy as part of any liberal education just as I did in the debate club, learning the other side better than they knew it themselves so as to destroy them.

    Because you live in a free country you have the right to promote Marxism any way that you want to and Obama is going to be voted out in a landslide because he tried to institute Marxism in our country.

    John Wilder

    • Obama is no Marxist. He’s much too conservative for me. In fact, I’d say he’s trying to save capitalism. No skin off my nose if he goes.

    • Scott
      Capitalism is the only social system that works every time. Socialism
      FAILS EVERY TIME THAT IT IS TRIED. Why are you still in this country.
      This country is great precisely BECAUSE OF capitalism. People come
      here for the freedom that capitalism provides.
      John Wilder

      • Dear Mr. Wilder, you are incorrect. You would have to define by what you mean by works. Capitalism works for whom? Everyone? Some?, etc. When you say socialism fails, again, you must define fails for whom and in what way? Perhaps you’re talking about the authoritarian regimes that call themselves Communist. Undoubtedly those have been pretty crappy.

        Why am I still in this country? Because it’s my country. I was born here.

        Actually, this country isn’t great because of capitalism but in spite of. We’ve been a very successful capitalist country to be sure but we’ve done it at the cost of becoming the world’s policeman, by instigating coups, imperialism, slavery, etc. Perhaps you’re confusing capitalism with Democracy? I’ve heard it said, “America means civil rights. Patriotism means defending them”. I think that’s why this country is great. Rule of law and all that….

        People come to this country for a variety of reasons. My wife, for example, to marry me. Some come for political reasons. Some for economic reasons. I don’t know of too many who say, “I’m going to America because they have capitalism and we don’t.”

      • Hell Scott
        Even the communists are developing capitalism. Communist China was utterly failing and
        people were starving to death until they relented and allowed some capitalism in.

        Russia is another example that socialism failed and now they are a roaring free market society..

        When you say it works, you can’t make everyone equal. Some people are lazy and don’t try.
        They get what they deserve. Steve Jobs is a brilliant example of capitalism at its best.

        John Wilder

      • Dear Mr. Wilder, this is my last post on this subject then I’ll leave you alone. I really hope you take the time to read this link.

        http://www.roanoke.com/editorials/commentary/wb/299720

        It explains what the US would look like without socialism. It comes from his personal experience so it’s not theoretical speculation.

        Too much capitalism results in people living behind 10′ walls with razor wire on the top and the workers laboring under unhealthy conditions. It turns out it’s precisely because we have regulated capitalism and worker protections paid for through taxes, etc. that make the US such a good place to live and work.

        It’s a very respectful piece that everyone should read.

    • Scott, you are a spoiled brat. The only reason you could even write that comment is because capitalism built the chair you are sitting on, the computer you used to type it and the Internet you used to send it on! Don’t be ignorant, man!

      • Dear Ms. Rebel, I know we’re supposed to have respectful exchanges so I’ll let your comments go. What you refer to is not so much capitalism as industrialism. Industrialism can be achieved many way. Not just capitalism.

  5. Shortylittlerebel, did you get my email concerning Cheers? I sent you a password and we have not seen you there in some time. Let me know if you got my email…….

    • Mr. Wilder, you may enjoy the “inanities” of this “pseudo intellectual”. Unfortunately, he’s a Ph.D. economist who teaches Marxism to world leaders who invite him to do so.

      “Yesterday, I gave a presentation in Riga, Latvia. There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about that.

      Except: the conference was organized by Lattelecom, a telecommunications company, which is the largest enterprise in the country. And I was invited to deliver a presentation—they chose the title—on “The New Reading of Marx’s Capital.”

      Consider that for a moment. A large capitalist enterprise, which invited someone to speak on that particular topic. 20 years after achieving their independence (for the second or third time, depending on how you recount the history) from the Soviet Union, and under a center-right government. (The CEO of the company and the prime minister of the country were both present.*)

      ….For the record, what I explained in my presentation was (a) there are increasing references to Marx and Marxist theory in the press (as I have documented on this blog), (b) the references to Marx have to do at least as much to the failure of mainstream economics and U.S. capitalism as they do to anything Marx wrote, and (c) the renewed interest in Marx has not yet been accompanied by a new reading of Marx’s Capital—but, in the midst of the Second Great Depression and the rise of the Occupy movement, that new reading may just be beginning to happen. And then, of course, I discussed some of the basic concepts (alienation, commodity fetishism, relative immiseration, crisis, and stagnation) around which that new reading might be organized…..

      • Yes so typical of libs and socialists. You take the most backward country around and compare it to capitalism. Every civilized country who has capitalism at its core has good roads, good police and good schools.

        We are a responsible society. The repubs are pushing back against the old class warfare
        argument that the rich are not paying their fair share. The rich are paying 71% of all taxes while the bottom half of our society pays no taxes. Is that fair, I ask you?

        John Wilder

      • Mr. Wilder, we are a capitalist society and have been cutting back on schools, firemen, policemen, etc. Where I’m from we can’t afford to pave our roads. Using the US as an example seems to undermine your own argument. I’m sure you’ll find worse examples undoubtedly but those often happen for other reason. For example, it’s hard to keep good roads in the desert when shifting sands continue to cover them or to have paved roads along the Andes with their extreme drop-offs. We are rich in part compared to these other countries because of our natural resources, not necessarily because of capitalism.

        You ask about the fairness of taxes. I forget which famous bank robber it was that said, “Why do I rob banks? Because that’s where the money is.” If you want to speak of fairness, let me ask, does it seem fair to you that we have approximately half the population with wages so small they don’t qualify for federal income taxes?
