Where are Anonymous & OWS?
Where are the Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street people have they been driven underground? Have they lost support? Lost interest? Are they in jail? Are they still alive? Or are they just beaten and scared of what the 1 percent can do to them? Of all these things I could understand, but if they have been bought off by the 1 percent, that would be the cardinal sin and I would hope for all the world’s 99 percent that being bought off is not the case. They must be given credit of starting the conversation about wage and life style inequality between the 1 percent and 99 percent. And even with other distractions, such as the revolutions in Arab Spring, Ukraine, Liberia, and Afghanistan. Of course, the USA’s local problems, plus Palestine and Israel, are distractions, but even with these distractions the main cause of the problems for 99 percent people are all the levels of inequality between the 99 percent and the 1 percent. The 1 percent with all its money and power hording will continue to be exposed for what they are and dealt with for these corporations are anti-worker and must be stopped before they bankrupt all the countries with democracies which depend on the capitalist consumer system dependent upon on the 67.5 percent of the toilers’ spending to support the system. The money hoarders are leaving this country to avoid paying taxes for the use of the Commons, which they use to make their money but are refusing to maintain or upkeep. This mentality will end up killing the goose that lays the golden egg. Companies are once again are eating their seed corn for a short sighted gain or profit, which only enriches their CEOs and stockholders on Wall Street at the expense of the toilers on Main Street. We might be beyond the ballot box to change this. The ballot is owned by the likes of the Koch brothers types and if that is the case what are the alternatives? Time is running out. For the toilers the 40 plus years of onslaught against the unions are reaping the benefits for the GOP anti-union 1percent. They now control many state Houses, Congress, and maybe the Senate, too. So, will the future be a lot of Ferguson, Missouris?
