    Default Wallstreet revolution

    What does everyone here at TWT think ? I prefer marching against the Federal Reserve Bank , myself , yet I am really excited Americans are starting to stand up and fight for their beliefs again .
    Personally ,I grew up during Watergate and the Pentagon Papers era and EVERYONE seemed so disillusioned with the government at that time that apathy set in . I grew tired of watching (sometimes participating) in rallies where we got our heads bashed in for demonstrating . I was under the impression we had that right . But after several ass kickings and arrests a man's civic duty starts to wane .
    LBJ and Nixon pretty much curtailed anyone from believing there was any hope for American Politics . Kennedy was killed for implementing certain programs( or so we were told ),the gulf of Tonken NEVER happened .LBJ lied , Nixon lied then was pardoned by Ford , Carter was impotent and Reagan traded arms for hostages to win the election . then Bush ,Impeachment ,Bush.....ad infinitum.
    So , back to protesting Wall street . do these people have a set agenda ? are their goals realistic ? what exactly do they hope to achieve ??
    I learned a long time ago to never follow a man without a plan . do these people know what they are doing ??
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Some words on the NET are that they are Soros creation aimed at promoting Socialism however most of the people seem a bit aimless. Just anger & energy with no set plan.

    Dylan Ratigan actually has tried to use this energy to fire up a Constitutional amendment that will get money out of the government. He had Ron Paul on today & told him he sent the proposal his way. Ratigan says he has 100K signatures so far.



    Then there is Romney who thinks it is class warfare & Cain who things poor people have only themselves to blame.

    Romney describes anti-Wall Street protests as "class warfare" - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Herman Cain to "Occupy Wall Street" protesters: Don't blame Wall St, blame yourself - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    They ought to march on Washington rather than Wall Street, imo. Of course, if they could come up with a coherent reason for what they are either "for" or "against" then maybe I'd have a different opinion.

    Alex Jones is trying to start a whole OCCUPY THE FED movement. I think that that is the real target though I don't think that AJ is the guy to be trying to lead something like that.

    Now we have Obama finally saying something about this



    I have already read how liberals have been spinning this as Obama supports this when he is in the bankers pockets all the way.

    If Obama is successful in pinning this on the GOP then it will be an all-time great re-direct. Obama and Dodd-Frank are the two primary reasons why the banks are raising fees right now. Wall Street voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008, although I could never figure out the logic for that.

    Please, please let Obama be toast next year. I don't really like any of the R's, but please get this community organizer out of the White House.

    I've read nearly everything about the FED I can get my hands on . Perhas the more influential work is Eustace Mullins' The Beast From Hyde Island . The supposed reason for the FED ecisting is to regulate the economy so we do not have another Black Friday as in Oct.1929 . Of course a lot of people feel the market was maneuvered into crashing . The consequences of the Great Depression were 4 terms by FDR-WWII-seizure of ALL gold -and America declaring bankruptcy -to name a few .
    EVERYTHING Wall street and the FED do will cause ripples in everyone's reality .

    They're in Washington.

    This seems to me like the lefts version of the tea party. Lots of angry people, no real direction, vague demands, getting in Sully's way on the subway and on the National Mall...
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    You all have good thoughts at what it is, but when the people protesting are asked, none have the same reason. I don't know for sure (obviously) but I am willing to lay money on the fact that it is all an experiment to see if federally ran schools have actually produced what the federal government wants. They have brainwashed these kids and someone sent a twitter to tell them to riot and they do.

    Look or listen to the actual protesters. None have a cohesive idea of why they are there. Same with the "arab spring". It is sooooo obvious! This is an experiment and if it doesn't work, they will tweak it, if it does, then mission accomplished. They have to do it now in case Obama is voted out.

    I don't see 35yr old construction workers there. Why? Because they are just over the line of the people who have been indocrinated. IMO

    I just posted these links on the Bilderberg thread. I got confused. Sorry, doing a lot of studying for midterm right now. But, here they are. And trust me, these protests will go away when it gets cold. Then, next summer, right during election campaign time, they will suddenly happen again. They are being paid to do it. Unions are no longer for better working conditions, they are for a New World Order.
