Well, we’ll just have to see what tomorrow brings I guess. I’ve been looking to see if I can confirm this & so far nothing.

As to your: http://www.lovelandnet.com/toms-place/writing/rent-a-mob/index.htm

funny “Was” I especially like this one…No Job Too Big or Small: We Do It All!
If you need to protest on a national or international level we have you covered. We can mobilize monks in Tibet, women in Brazil or a massive protest in Tiananmen Square. We have the resources to get the job done. We provide hecklers at political rallies and conventions or your local city council meetings. We even can provide the resources to protest your pesky neighbors.

I have a fine art background. By way of comparison, I saw many art students make the big mistake that whoever did something similar to what they were doing was copying their work, when what was usually happening was that there were always similar ideas and inspirations floating around in society at the same time that made for similar visual expression. The better artists simply looked deeper into those ideas, instead of sulking about being “ripped off” and spending their time trying to protect their particular work.

Having said that, I understand your point about the need to be wary of everything that is happening being co-opted, in the way the original Tea Party ideas were usurped by the Koch brothers and the Repub Party. This whole process will probably take a long time and will have to evolve somehow, so I hope everyone isn’t looking for big immediate changes. Remember the Civil Rights movement.

I am not a republican and republicans are for the rich, i voted for democrats in the last federal election, but none of that has anything to do with hr589, the wisconson governor has nothing to do with hr 589, I think its neet that Justin Bieber got a hair cut today but it has nothing to do with Hr 589 so I will not copy and paste the TMZ article about justin biebers hair cut. If i made 10 posts a day copy and pasting articles about justin beiber people would quit comming to this thread because people come here to learn about hr 589 not to read page after page about justin Bieber. legion1 asked why people no longer come here, people no longer come here because they are looking for information about pending legislation not about justin biebers new hair cut of how tax laws pertain to s corporations.

check out Justin’s new hair cut

99ers Supporters of HR 589 How will History Judge Americans of Today?

n observing the mainstream propaganda machine I heard a commentator on FOX News put forth the notion that if the labor unions could be broken it would drive down wages and allow more people to go to work at a reduced rate, and this was portrayed as a good thing. 
Let’s take it step further.  Let’s get rid of the unions and the minimum wage and even more people could return to the work place.  Hell let’s go all the way, let’s get rid of child labor laws.  We could put everybody to work but of course they would only be getting room and board, which in reality equates to slavery. 

What the hey, the important thing is that every available laborer gets up with the sun and works until dark so that a handful of elites can enjoy the precious time they have upon this earth.

Funding………

Although headquartered in Kansas, Koch Industries has at least 17 facilities and offices in Wisconsin (by my rough count of facilities and companies noted on the Koch Industries “Wisconsin Facts” page), and operates “nearly 4,000 miles of pipeline” through its Koch Pipeline Company, L.P. Which may account for Wisconsin’s evolution into the Midwest Frontier Province of Kochistan.

The conglomerate boasts “four terminals and strategically located pipelines” through its Flint Hills Resources, LLC, which it describes as “a leading refining and chemicals company” that markets “gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, ethanol, olefins, polymers and intermediate chemicals, as well as base oils and asphalt.”

The Kochs’ Georgia Pacific paper and wood products division has six facilities in Wisconsin. Its C. Reiss Coal Company “is a leading supplier of coal used to generate power,” according to the Koch Web site. “The company has locations in Green Bay, Manitowoc, Ashland and Sheboygan.”

WasMiddleClass 10/12/2011 9:22pm

And on that note I will expand more on my previous Market Ticker post (from a prominent conservative)…

Go ahead folks, keep playing the GGG game. On the left or on the right. Pick one. Tea Party or the George Soros Party. Both are driving you to this to keep your eye off the ball.

The ball is the theft of this nation by a group of looters that inhabit both Wall Street and Washington DC, with a revolving door between them.

You want an enemy? Focus your energy on Bernanke, Geithner and our President, who supports them both and has said nothing about shutting down the looting.

You – America – You – can fix this tomorrow. Put 500,000 people around The Treasury and The Fed in Washington DC and refuse to leave until Geithner and Bernanke both resign and depart and the FDIC goes through all four of the largest banks, marks their “stuff” to market, and resolves all that are insolvent. Lay peaceful siege, MLK-style.

WasMiddleClass 10/12/2011 9:23pm

Yeah, that will cause a short-term economic dislocation. It will also end the economic malaise and break the back of the financial class co-opting Washington DC.

Until it happens, our nation’s long, cold night will not end.

Latest CBS-NYTimes poll shows majority of the American people BLAME this economic crisis on President George W. Bush. A embassy built in Iraq thats BIGGER than the Vatican in Rome?? Where is the OUTRAGE people!! We are being screwed every which way and humble in its acceptable or so it seems. Other countries are out there,we should be to! The President and Democrats/Independents have to continue this truth as President Obama did in a speech the other day. $2 TRILLION dollars spent on the WARS in Iraq & Afghanistan with over 4500 US Soldiers dead and THOUSANDS injured physically and mentally! The WAR CHEST is full of spendable CASH and its being spread around the Internet blogs as we have seen prior to the November 2010 elections and are gradually seeing the same returning with the ugly verbiage & profanity. President Bush left behind a $12 TRILLION national debt! President Obama INHERITED that debt along with 2 WARS and a RECESSION! “LESSER OF TWO EVILS = THE DEMOCRATS”

Last article read states $60 BILLION cost for the war in Iraq, haven’t seen any legitimate news article stating $3 TRILLION. I don’t think anyone knows the TRUE cost given a FEW billion here and a FEW billion there while MILLIONS of unemployed continue to suffer because HR 589 sits and sits and sits. Price-tag $16 Billion.

WasMiddleClass 05/02/2011 11:29pm

I’ll end this night with a quote. I thankfully have some work for a while so I have to get up early.

“Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle! Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” – Thomas Paine

Goodnight America

Now we know why no legislation has been introduced in the 112th Congress to jumpstart this economy, JOBS JOBS and HR 589. President Obama inherited this debt by $12 TRILLION dollars from the previous administration of Bush/Cheney and the republican tea party has been the PARTY OF NO since this President Obama was sworn in over 2yrs ago! $12 TRILLION national debt + 2 WARS and the republicans are concerned about SPENDING after they SPENT all they could when they had all 3 houses culminating into the abyss America is in. They want THIS President to be a ONE-TERM President, bring back the same inept party that got America into these messes.. DON’T believe the hype and don’t be fooled by the language! OBTW Universal healthcare was implemented FREE of CHARGE to the Iraqi people compliments of President GW Bush 6 years BUT the American people are paying for it and will be for years to come! “LESSER OF TWO EVILS = THE DEMOCRATS”
