As long as there is a TWO-PARTY system, “LESSER OF TWO EVILS = THE DEMOCRATS” US Rep Lee was on C-SPAN yesterday with discussion on HR 589 and the LONG-TERM unemployed called 99ers. Continue EMAILING – TWEETS – FAXING – CALLING for HR 589!

For two straight weeks, union members and supporters have held a vigil in the Wis state capitol protesting a union-busting budget bill that threatens the bargaining rights of public employees. Across the nation, the showing of solidarity has been overwhelming.

On Saturday, there are 2 ways to show your solidarity:

1. Come to a solidarity rally in Chicago:

Solidarity rally in Chicago at the Thompson Center.

Rally information

Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph

12–3 p.m.


2. Come stand with Wisconsin. On Saturday, Feb. 26, tens of thousands of working families and community members will gather in Madison at the Capitol building to demand an end to Gov. Scott Walker’s attacks on the middle class. Come be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime, on-the-ground energy as Wisconsinites take ownership of their democracy

Did we add a cut and paste option for Sher1? How about a lesser of two evil option?

How about that new deal I heard about. They work two weeks and get one week off in the House now? I heard that and thought are you frigging kidding me.

There are so many realities today in peoples minds that it reminds me of the Matrix movies…

For those that walk on the dark side at times, I ran across this today,


But then again there is light and dark all over…

Light displaces darkness.

The army of light will prevail…

I’d really like to know why this story never reached network news this weekend:

Kayvan Sabeghi Injured: Second Iraq War Vet Hurt During Oakland Clash With Police

I know this is from HuffPost, but it’s still just online. Anybody see this on any of the big cable shows?

A large march by Occupy Wall Street protesters Saturday ended partway across the Brooklyn Bridge with the NYPD intervening and arresting hundreds of demonstrators.

I was with the marchers — an estimated few thousand people…

It was noticed…in many places. Google news it…

I found this article…sort of funny,


I was on a site the other day where vets were saying who the hell are these guys (OccupyOMC), they act like black ops. I agree, and welcome support from all…

The Nolo book is excellent. I recommend it to those contemplating preparing their own BK.

WasMiddleClass 06/06/2011 7:52pm


And I love you too funny face :)


Now to be a little more serious…

I’m not bothering to post all the inaccurate crap I heard out of Palins mouth over the years, but here response to people saying she was wrong about Paul Revere was to insist she was right, and that Paul Revere was warning the British that they can not take our guns away! Give me a frigging break! And then Palin supporters tried to rewrite history to match her words on Wikipedia!

You can do better than that funny face :-Þ

Agree 100%.

You know the way we are spoken about as the “average Joe”…..or the "common man’……or the “nobodies”……

This is the real attitude and don’t kid yourself….politics is just their chosen profession……don’t kid yourself….

Most importantly, instead of elevating and advancing the American Dream……..a generation ago, if things were handled with the brinksmanship as they are today…..our citizenry would be outraged…


WasMiddleClass 06/06/2011 7:58pm

And as Sher1 mentioned, I watched that Katie Couric interview too, and remember clear as a bell thinking, ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME? SHE WANTS TO BE VICE PRESIDENT?!!!

I can be nice to Sher1 sometimes too 0.o

As “Was” posted on the previous page: “I think the no-vote group will be a lot bigger for 2012…”

We need to take advantage of our numbers. Getting us all together to protest is a problem, this would not be the same, this can be easily done & if enough participate maybe it will shake them. Until now we been pretty much begging for help to no avail. If it takes threats to wake them up, so be it.

Pah Lease spare me……..more fear mongering……..this Fin country is 14 TRILLION dollars in debt and you’re saying a person is imprisoned / debtors prison…..of some sort………this is not immoral it is flat out Amoral…

I’ve never heard anything so rediculous in my life, of course other than it gives lawyers a way of justifying their existence…..

where 02/23/2011 2:09am

Im curious, Is it possible that these protests are the spark that starts the fire?

WasMiddleClass appears to be MIA, Please post if your still out there Was, Im very concerned for you.

Obamas Jobs speech tomorrow I fear will just be a mere Campaign speech with no real conviction to do any good for America, Oh sure he will say promising things but that will be it, All talk and not a hint of real action.

I am curious tho If he will mention us in his speech, Or are we dead to him?

WasMiddleClass 11/17/2011 11:47pm

Now some out there may ask why Herman Cain should get taxpayer funded Secret Service protection while you or I would not if we decided to run for President…

The answer is it depends on how much MONEY you have…

Imagine that!
