"We can see that for a long time we allowed our political engagement also to be outsourced,” he said. “We want it back. We are not communists. If communism means the system which collapsed in 1990, remember that today those communists are the most efficient ruthless capitalists. In China today we have capitalism which is even more dynamic than your American capitalism but doesn’t need democracy.“Which means when you criticize capitalism, don’t allow yourselves to be blackmailed that you are against democracy. The marriage between democracy and capitalism is over.”

Some people just don't know what a free country looks like. And those people should get stuck up Bocephus's ass and dropped out in the same waters as Bin Laden. The only good wall street fluffing tea bagger is a turned shark turd one.

TEA party just needs to be educated.  They're angry at the system which is good... but for all the wrong reasons.   they should be out counter-protesting...  REAL ULTIMATE CIVIL UNREST CAGE MATCH!

An occasional protest can be good.

Here is one in front of Amocat Cafe re: sidewalks

Protesting should be an american thing like karaoke is japan's thing. So drop your mics and cringeworthy karaoke attempts and pick up a megaphone tacoma. But if you must karaoke and ruin my pizza eating experience at PSP, not that the service doesn't already do that, then Joe's last sentence gave me an idea for a great karaoke song for a tacoman to rape: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkVCKdPSzvI

The Tea Party folks and the Occupy Wherever folks have very similar goals- plain ol' normal people who are tired of elitist governments working hand in hand with uncaring corporate manipulators. If those two protest groups joined forces, you really might have a revolution on your hands. But since they apparently hate each other, we are safe.
I actually agree with low bar- protest away, it's the only voice that gets any attention!

advice for #occupy demands from Matt Taibbi www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/my-ad...
1. Break up the monopolies. The so-called "Too Big
to Fail" financial companies – now sometimes called by the more accurate
term "Systemically Dangerous Institutions" – are a direct threat to
national security. They are above the law and above market consequence,
making them more dangerous and unaccountable than a thousand mafias
combined. There are about 20 such firms in America, and they need to be
dismantled; a good start would be to repeal the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
and mandate the separation of insurance companies, investment banks and
commercial banks.
2. Pay for your own bailouts. A tax of 0.1 percent
on all trades of stocks and bonds and a 0.01 percent tax on all trades
of derivatives would generate enough revenue to pay us back for the
bailouts, and still have plenty left over to fight the deficits the
banks claim to be so worried about. It would also deter the endless
chase for instant profits through computerized insider-trading schemes
like High Frequency Trading, and force Wall Street to go back to the job
it's supposed to be doing, i.e., making sober investments in
job-creating businesses and watching them grow.
3. No public money for private lobbying. A company
that receives a public bailout should not be allowed to use the
taxpayer's own money to lobby against him. You can either suck on the
public teat or influence the next presidential race, but you can't do
both. Butt out for once and let the people choose the next president and
4. Tax hedge-fund gamblers. For starters, we need an
immediate repeal of the preposterous and indefensible carried-interest
tax break, which allows hedge-fund titans like Stevie Cohen and John
Paulson to pay taxes of only 15 percent on their billions in gambling
income, while ordinary Americans pay twice that for teaching kids and
putting out fires. I defy any politician to stand up and defend that
loophole during an election year.
5. Change the way bankers get paid. We need new laws
preventing Wall Street executives from getting bonuses upfront for
deals that might blow up in all of our faces later. It should be: You
make a deal today, you get company stock you can redeem two or three
years from now. That forces everyone to be invested in his own company's
long-term health – no more Joe Cassanos pocketing multimillion-dollar
bonuses for destroying the AIGs of the world.
