The U.S. does the same thing as the 1% to the rest of the world - it owns (requiring a strong military) real (inflation-proof) assets, owes the most, and pays back with cheaper (its own newly printed) dollars so I add: Occupy the U.S.!

Occupy Wall Street! Occupy the Fed! End this madness.

This article proves that the Fed has been doing its job. At one time, we had $15 an hour minimum wage, adjusted for inflation. The Fed steals from the masses to give to the 1% through decades of inflation it had produced. The 1% owns real (inflation-proof) assets, owes the most, and pays back the debts with cheaper dollars. The masses had to fight just to get back to where they were economically decades ago. This is the crocodile's tear for the poor thing it chewed up.

Anyone can get rich with billions of dollars of 0-0.25% credit with the Fed committing to 2% inflation but anyone excludes most common folks.

Thread: DEMINO
[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28274) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 hours ago

Could also be a better fit for Reps rather than RINO. As Romino's they do fall in line with no arguments against pushing insane policies/actions and the Dems as Dominos as they seem to fall in line with little objection to supporting much ( all? ) of that insanity.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28274) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 hours ago

A Republican in name only is a RINO. The Democratic counter part might be a DEMINO.

Or a DINO.

Yes Allison is not much of a change - but saying adios to the Mitch - would still be a gr8 thing.

Look at that state at the state that that state is in. Any microscopically small shift towards a progressive stance would be phenomenal. That being said - it is sad to see no true champion for the people in that race.

Economy is in Severe Trouble

Yes - Yes it is.

Now while I don't think this talk ( TED TALK ) is complete.

I do feel that it points out much common sense - not just for the USA - but also for the whole world.

So you may have seen it before - But - I think it is something that should be revisited/reviewed often.

So here goes ->

It's appropriate that the epithet is phonetically similar to domino. The DEMINOs fall down whenever the their corporate masters [usually Republicans] crack whips.

Pigeonlady,

No one is supposed to get on it but there are feathered friends of yours which do their "necessary" airstrikes at it. It really intrigues me what the NYPD would do if our national raptor were to build a nest on it and raise a family there.

Thanks-I have a million things to do-back in a couple days-you are a helpful person,and that's the best kind of person there is!

"Occupy has entered our DNA. It is in our forms of relating, organizing and being. And, just as “during DNA replication, DNA unwinds so it can be copied,” so Occupy has retained its essence while it has multiplied and changed form.

''When we chant, “We are the 99%” it is said with a sense of power, with our heads held a little higher and backs straighter. People have a newfound dignity in being in the majority. And not only do we feel dignity, but we no longer feel shame. Over the past decades in the U.S. (and many other parts of the world) to be poor, to face eviction or foreclosure, to need help, was something one hid. People would get evicted and pretend to their neighbors and even to their friends that they were just moving in with family and friends for a while, as if it was a choice. No longer. Now many of these same people go to their neighbors and together form assemblies to defend against evictions and foreclosures. Instead of hiding the fact that one has debt it is becoming part of a movement—Strike Debt!—turning the issue on the banks and discussing refusal instead of guilt and powerlessness.

''As Tony Ndege from Occupy Winston-Salem explained - “It is the first nationwide movement in decades to exist outside of the realm of the establishment of either major party and address class. Occupy forged new relationships between new waves of people in various stages of radicalization.”

Yes, ''who endures - succeeds'' and furthermore ... "The limitation of tyrants is the endurance of those they oppose." - as said by Frederick Douglas & fyi, please consider :

From the first link, consider : ''It is three years since Occupy Wall Street shook the world—and the reverberations are felt everywhere. No longer seen with the occupation of parks, plazas and squares, Occupy has relocated, it is in us, it is in our ways of being, relating and coming together. People are changed—feel more dignity and organize for a different world because of it. Occupy was never about a place or a moment—it was and is about a way of being and doing. As all ways of relating, it changed and changes, and must do so as to thrive.''

Occupy Wall Street is alive and kicking in the minds of the American people. They now get it that they've been screwed over. Okay, they are not quite sure what to do or how to handle it. But the seeds have been planted.

You can't get watershed change without people realizing that the change is a. necessary and b. possible. We're working on the b. part now because Americans do know that things are not right or fair.

Sadly, some of the people who organized Occupy Wall Street thought we'd have a revolution overnight. That isn't how things work. Look at history. It can take decades for major change to take place.

Occupy Wall Street is a complete success for it has planted the seeds of class consciousness and the impetus for change and those ideas are not going away any time soon.

And, thanks for all your great comments, lately, TrashyHarry.

Oh I'm glad you asked the solution is to point out to the public the GOP's compete commitment to making the rich richer, this would result in the collapse of the GOP and the entire current "system" would fail because as we all know the Dems need the GOP to survive, take down the GOP and you take down the system, and that can be done, really should be easy with a little truth telling as long as we can keep the third party ego whores from screwing it up.

Your hatred will do nothing to solve the problem, creating change is not about making you feel better, it is about assessing the situation and determining the weak point to apply pressure so the system can be brought down. The weak point in this system is the GOP ties to great wealth and their one binding principal of the rich must be made richer, if pressure is applied at that point consistently reminding the public of that connection, it will result in the collapse of the GOP, that will bring the entire current system down, because as many have pointed out the Dems need the GOP, waking the people up will not be a one or two election sort of thing, but the folks in Washington will start being real scared the minute someone comes out saying they care about wealth inequality and they're not stupid, that would scare the hell out of Washington.
