OWS Rushing USA to Point of No Return
We are sitting in the eye of a hurricane. The media jackals, like a tornado, are destroying everything and everyone in their path who is a conservative and not a subscriber to European socialism and one world government.
Alphabet soup pundits dedicate hundreds of stories and airtime to Occupy Wall Street unemployable collegiate malcontents, filthy vagrants, druggies, and communist agitators who are getting more and more violent.
Occupiers with trust funds claim to be the 99 percent of the people who want the spoils of the one percent, the rich. They complain that the homeless are stealing their electronic gadgets and food. Apparently, “stealing is a problem when it happens to you, ‘social justice’ when it happens to someone else.” Lazy agitators abhor capitalism and banks, yet are hypocritically eager to deposit donated funds in the bank.
Goethe said, “Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.” And there is plenty of ignorance walking the streets and parks of Occupy Wall Street. One outraged group was flooded by job application flyers falling from offices above the street. Here is a novel idea, instead of complaining for weeks and laying in your own filth, get a job created by the government control you so crave.
A good suggestion to the anarchists would be to move to Cuba or Korea where most jobs are government issued and controlled. Workers have job security, no vacations, terrible medical care, must be silent, show up for work six days a week, and pretend to be happy on a salary of $20 a month.
The malcontents were told in school and believed that the economy was bad thanks to capitalism. Capitalism could not create jobs for their worthless degrees. Only government could create wonderful jobs. No advisor in college had told them the truth that they could not get a job with a degree in Greek or Women’s Studies after spending $50,000 on a worthless piece of paper.
If the OWS crowd gets what they want, in a few years, when the money runs out, they will be in the streets again rioting in the manner of Greece. I am getting ahead of myself, we already are broke, and we perpetrate the illusion that we are still a superpower. The Fed just keeps creating electronic money out of thin air and prints more greenbacks.
We are on a one-way road to economic self-destruction and the Occupy Wall Street movement, sponsored by Unions, is taking us rather fast in that direction, handing China economic dominance.
In the meantime, Congress, Americans, law enforcement, and the judicial system are looking the other way, allowing corruption, crass lawlessness, and welfare indolence.
Occupiers bemoan the income inequality as if it was caused by the rich. Jealousy and envy dictate that they must have everything the rich own because it is socially just. They had been told by Marxist teachers that the rich are the cause of all their pathetic misguided decisions and they now truly believe it.
They do not ask Hollywood stars or other celebrities to pay their “fair share” because they are the idols they wish to emulate. Malcontents do not ask that politicians who have robbed our country blind be responsible for their actions. On the contrary, they are heroes to the OWS crowd.
Most rich people earned what they have through hard work, entrepreneurship, risk taking, and luck. In the process, they have created millions of jobs for middle class citizens who became better off financially. Rich individuals like Steve Jobs created millions of millionaires through Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).
Pandering to the Wall Street movement, Obama said, “Over the past three decades, the middle class has lost ground while the wealthiest few have become even wealthier.” The tired out class warfare routine is getting old, since statistics, according to Investor’s Business Daily, show that income inequality rose most under President Clinton and is rising under Obama.
“The wealthiest 5 percent of U.S. households saw incomes fall 7 percent after inflation in Bush’s eight years in office. During Clinton’s eight years, the wealthiest 5 percent of American households saw their income jump 45 percent vs. 26 percent under Reagan.”
The Ginni Index, which measures income inequality, rose in Obama’s first two years. The Census measure of income inequality indicated a climb of 5.7 percent since he took office.
Obama is using and misrepresenting income inequality to drive a deeper wedge in the class envy warfare that is allowing him to gain more and more control of our country. Keeping a divided citizenry, he can conquer and overcome any obstacle in his path. People are too busy disliking each other instead of really concentrating on issues and culprits.
Ohio is voting today on a statewide ballot initiative. It all boils down to whether the voters will choose to give public union employees twice the salaries that private citizens earn and will pay for their generous benefits and excellent retirement packages.
While campaigning in 2008 Obama said, “The project of the next president is figuring out how to create bottom-up economic growth as opposed to the trickle-down economic growth that George Bush has been so enamored with.” Was the President referring to his Big Labor supporters forcing the rest of us to fund lavish salaries and pensions for unions, or was he referring to his Wall Street Occupier force demanding the transfer of wealth from the one percent to the ninety-nine percent who have no right to this wealth?
As the OWS movement grows and gets more and more out of hand, there will come a point of no return when the violence will escalate, funded, organized, and stoked by the left and the one-world government supporters who control our country now.
