I do love how their graphical talking points illustrate what supreme morons they are:
"Eat the Rich" - Ok, then what, there's only 1% of The Rich right? What then? They aren't capable enough to actually produce food so after the Rich are gone, those folks who actually produce and distribute food, these people are screwed. Do we then see signs that say Eat the People Who Ate the Rich?
"Share the Burden" Yes, please do, because those of us who are productive tax payers and who are paying for you to play in the park are tired of shouldering the burden ourselves. So, yes, please do go out and get a job and pay taxes so you too can share the burden.
Just some short takes. They're simply not worth a lot of air time. And I swear that Most 5th graders are smarter than these stupid losers.
It is comical really. I hope they take it to the bitter end. Seriously. Maybe they'll learn 'Something' .
To some African-Americans or anyone else who feels they’ve been economically downtrodden:
I wish I wasn’t born a ‘poor black child’ either. My father and his father worked like slaves and were thankful they had the Opportunity to make a better life for themselves. My Mother and Father didn’t focus on themselves however. They had 4 kids instead and drove used cars all their lives. We were poor, but I and my brothers and sister didn’t really acknowledge it. We all worked and made our way, cutting grass, shoveling snow, flipping burgers, whatever.
For my 11th birthday, I received a Used green plastic encased transistor radio that must have cost 50 cents back in the day. I put a note on it that said take it back and left it on the living room sofa. My Mom was righteously offended and told me so. I apologized then as I do now and shortly after, I was walking down the street holding it to my left ear listening to the Beatles playing I Want To Hold Your Hand. I was thankful for that radio at that point. I “Heard Music” for the first time in my life. My Father also walked Italy, France and Germany during WWII before I was born of course, and didn’t ask for anything nor got anything special for doing so.
So you know what folks? Suck it up and Shut Up and get busy living and making it for yourself. I nor anyone else Owes You Jack. Opportunity is what America provides you, not a guarantee you can be as well off as whoever you're focusing on.
To the folks who were born as something they really don’t want to be – wrong Gender, wrong color, wrong height, weight, or physical/mental abilities:
Guess what? I wish I' had been born an offspring to John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Martin Sheen, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, or any of the other folks who would have paved a way for me to waltz into acting after having studied the craft and now be making so much money I couldn’t stand it for doing Practically Freakin Nothing !
So you know what folks? Suck it up and Shut Up and get busy living and making it for yourself. I nor anyone else Owes You Jack.
Gay and feel bad that there’s some people in America who don’t like you?
Suck it up and Shut Up and get busy living and making it for yourself. I nor anyone else Owes You Jack.
Think the world owes you something for any reason at all?
We Don't ! Shut up and Suck it Up !
I'm white, over 21 and good looking! No one ever gave me a Dime so shut the hell up !
The fact that the wall street 'protesters' are occupying 'Wall Street' illuminates their mindless fascination with cheap parlor tricks. It was Washington DC who gave all of Our money, Present and Future - to Wall Street, and the Banks, Foreign and Domestic. Wall Street Did Not Steal It, It was Given To Them by the Political. (30 Trillion as of a few years ago through the means of Bernanke buying their worthless mortgage paper and putting it on the Fed's balance sheet. When the heat is off in a decade or so, it will be flushed because it will never be worth anything. And this is a long way from over. Europe is just getting started and we are all connected at the hip bone.)
Anyway, I don't include Past money, as we each had the opportunity to protect that money. This is hardball after all and if you don't know that, please know it now. No one other than you and maybe your Mother and Father are interested in the Protection of your money. Everyone else will do anything and everything to get it. And no-one in Washington DC even cares if you die tomorrow. Most of them like that idea actually, especially if your estate is valued in the realm where they have decided it is reasonable for them to take 50+ percent of it. Money and assets that have already been taxed. Supposedly not possible to tax money that has already been taxed, but hey, we're dealing with Coke Addicts here.
These protester idiots should be surrounding the capitol building and the Federal Reserve, but like the children they are, they gravitate to the 'shiny thing' the magician holds to the side to capture their attention - Wall Street and Broad. Personally, I'd say most of those [wall street] people are just like us - out there trying to make a living for themselves and family with the occasional Madoff CSer tossed in, but certainly those Madoff bastards are in the minority. Pathetic. But these [protesters] Are children after all.
Let's forget my judgement and opinion. Let's say the 'wall street protesters' are righteous, intelligent, well informed folks on a righteous mission. They won't accomplish anything. The big money runs the world. It is the way it is. You aren't going to get Loyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman) to resign. At the end of the day, Goldman Sacs will still have their super computer(s) sitting within inches of the exchange computers so they can siphon off large sums of money each and every trading day because they have the advantage of beating out electrons coming from much further than a few feet away. It's called High Frequency Trading if you didn't know and want to check it out.
Furthermore, at the end of the day, the big banks will still be around because selling houses is the main driver of the economy. And since few of us can swing buying a house without a mortgage, those people will always be around.
As usual with 'protesters' - their 15 minutes of fame will dry up and this rock will be same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.
Oh, catch my last post if you haven't yet. Pretty cool stuff on robots.
After posting this Blue Angels picture on the right side, I went to their site and found they've upgraded it to have video of most of the entire show shot from the cockpits of the performing aircraft. If you love air-shows, the Blue Angels, fighter planes, and piloting like I do, you will enjoy this.
Click the picture. You'll note an icon on the lower right of the split screen that is a box with shadow line bottom and left and an arrow pointing into the box, that's full screen. If you hit that, the vid is more enjoyable, but if the video gets stuck as it has for me, you'll need to go back to non full screen and click on the next clip to restart it.
Personally, I start on # 7, which is the F/A-18 part of the show.
Update: Here is the same picture in high resolution. Click on it a couple times and you can really get some nice detail. More available at their site by pressing the 'aircraft' button. (And if you use Firefox and install the add-on called Image Zoom, you can blow these up even more.)
