This movement is Not Going Away...


Throughout the U.S. and the world, people took to the streets on Saturday to add their voices to the chorus. We've had enough of corporate rule. People are sick of a government that's wholly owned by International Banksters and Wall Street Gamers. Sick of a government that is being run and managed by company men, and designed to benefit only elite stockholders. Sick of a democracy-in-name-only farce, and elections rigged by corporate machinery that can be controlled with minimal expertise.

On the home front, Americans are tired of working harder and still not getting by, and that's when they are working. The millions of unemployed are in worse straits, which will become truly dire when unemployment will end for millions in early 2012. Other Americans are tired of struggling under the endless burden of student loans that they'll never be able to pay off, because of interest and fees. Americans who work and pay taxes, but don't get the breaks, bailouts, and subsidies that Corporate America does. And unlike the free debt pass given to corpo-world, for regular citizens poor credit translates into the inability to get other jobs, housing, a vehicle, or even insurance.

More people have been learning how industry and corporate lobbies write actual laws which are then given to their special (employee) representatives to pass in Congress.

As Professor Michael Hudson commented, "When I visited the OccupyWallStreet site on Wednesday, it was clear that the disgust with the political system went so deep that there is no single set of demands that can fix a system so fundamentally broken and dysfunctional. One can’t paste-up a regime that is impoverishing the economy, accelerating foreclosures, pushing state and city budgets further into deficit, and forcing cuts in social spending."

"The situation is much like that from Iceland to Greece: Governments no longer represent the people. They represent predatory financial interests that are impoverishing the economy. This is not democracy. It is financial oligarchy. And oligarchies do not give their victims a voice."

What we've been waking up to is making us sick, angry, and unwilling to continue with the status quo. This is not the country we want for ourselves or our children. And we also don't want to pass along to our children a poisoned, dying planet with dubious prospects for anyone's long-term survival - thanks to the insatiable greed of multi-national rapists.

This is why people are showing up now, and why they will continue to swell in numbers as Americans of all persuasions begin to wake up to the enormous, destructive con game that has been run on us - at our expense.

This is only the beginning - worldwide. We, however, must be anticipating the next move by the corrupt, corporate "rulers" which is usually another attack or war in order to disrupt and divert this movement. True, the government of Iran is not a bargain at all for the people there, especially in regards to the discrimination against women and their rights. If we just wait and watch the people of Iran will also rise up against their psychopathic "rulers."

I couldn't agree more...
In fact, it looks like the msm is dutifully running their "bad, bad Iran" stories, and failing to expose flimsy propaganda like this.
