Occupy Is The Tip Of The Coming Insurrection - And Response

Saturday, November 12, 2011

The Drive by Media, MSNBC (All Obama all the time) and the others fitting this mold and print media have a mission - glorify, be sympathetic, and praise the Occupiers, regardless of their current location.

Van Jones (I Hope you remember him, Obama’s in-house radical advisor until exposed) has voiced support for this uprising, right out of their textbook “Rules for Radicals” by their esteemed author, Sol Lewinsky. Old Buddy Sol demonstrates that the way for these radicals to gain control is top down, bottom up.

The Occupiers, whether they realize it or not, have done exactly what Obama wished for - civil insurrection in the streets, camping out at state capitals, defecating on NYPD patrol cars all create the “impression” that the unhappy have taken to the streets. If their demonstrations continue or worsen, when violence erupts, injuries or deaths occur, the Obama Administration will have to respond. They will have to come to the rescue, all the while clamping down on the freedoms of the law-abiding citizens of this nation. Obama, demonstrating his ability to control the Occupiers, right before election time will hope for a bounce.

Do not believe any of this is by chance. His clamping down, which has yet to come, will make Old Sol smile, wherever he is.

One of the most entertaining angles to observe with the occupiers is their so-called demands. Most can’t even tell you why they are there. They simply found out a demonstration was going to occur and responded to the call. What do they want? When do they want it? The main thing that stands out as needed is port-a-potties.

I have not mingled with them and will not. People that have been around them do advise they reek of urine and body odor. Didn’t anybody tell them that to be impressive you need to look good, not like a street person?

That brings us to another question, are they homeless just attending for free food and maybe getting a toke off a joint as it passes by? Reports advise there are drugs present at these gatherings, another reason for some to attend and never leave. The locations they “occupy” or maybe homestead, are public parks and State Capital grounds.

Kudos to Governor Bill Haslam, who sent the Tennessee Highway Patrol in and cleared the property. In the dark corners of the West Wing, Obama is smiling. For a group anti-government and anti-corporations (where people work) they don’t even realize they are giving Obama an opportunity soon.

Go home, take a bath, cut the hair and go to work. Be a contributor to the system instead of a sideshow.

I have to just giggle when I read Mitch Thurman's ramblings of the occupiers claiming that, somehow, Obama is behind it all. Any proof of that Mitch?

Let me remind Mitch and readers that occupiers of Wall Street and Main Street have reasons to be angry, angry at the system of government which turns the other cheek to corruption within the halls and offices of our elected representatives.

Did anyone watch 60 Minutes Sunday exposing politicians greed on a first name basis? I would be and am angry at the government of the United States and were I able I might protest too.

Is it possible for the masses to rise up against corporate greed and and our ineffective government? It certainly is. Our elected Congressional Representative Chuck Fleischman has been bragging lately that he is in support of jobs for the unemployed. Chuck's bill benefits only people like himself, people with money that have stock and receive capital gains. Wake up America.
