Response to an article By Catherine J. Frompovich, Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Generally speaking, this article would normally be found in the comments section of the site it was read from, but I was so pissed when I read it I decided to obtain the help of Jefferson’s Voice to write a rebuttal, which is copied below.

The bottom line is the dumbing down protocol has eviscerated critical thinking skills in this country and reinforced an evolutionary old hard wired tendency to ignore insidious threats. Then there are endless distractions that create all kinds of addictive behavior and profound myopia.  How do we overcome this?

Sometimes shocks like the 2008 economic contraction will wake some people up, hence, Occupy Wall Street.  For now though, the slow dismantling continues and American frogs continue to sit in the pot and cook.  It’s time for some powerful epiphanies to get the frogs moving!  To get started, let’s be honest that TPTB working around the clock to destroy our civil liberties and republican form of government (and all nation states, for that matter) are not simply greedy corporatists, they are international banksters and their minions, their agenda is both soul crushing and far reaching.  Connect the dots.

Occupy Oakland: Police Brutality,

Tear Gas, Veteran in Coma

The protestor, Veteran of the Iraq war and Marine Scott Olsen, was standing still when shot, unprovoked, in the head with_ a teargas canister. He is currently in the hospital in a coma, and has a very real chance of dying from his injuries. This video needs to go viral, Officers of the law these men are not. They don’t only deserve a loss of their job, but they deserve military time.

Mercenarius de facto; the hounds leashed by the machine

What is missing is that puff of fresh, oxygenated air to permeate the mass

***This information was not penned by myself. I received a request from a reader to consider placing this viewpoint as another approach in analyzing the OWS Movement. As one can see, this is more than a comment and poses serious analytical consideration.***

I’ve noticed a very worrisome trend in the ongoing “Occupy <X>” movement taking place in the major metropolitan centers. I’m not the first to point out the participation of military veterans such as Veterans for Peace, Oath Keepers, and Iraq Veterans Against the War in the various protests. For the right side of the political spectrum, it is easy to dismiss them as seditious turncoats. Given what passes for the current state of lawful authority, such an opinion may not be unreasonable in the eyes of the right wingers. Meanwhile the left side of the political spectrum continues to eye such participation warily since the veterans represent mercenarius de facto; the hounds leashed by the machine. Again, such an observation may not be without merit. It is not for these reasons, however valid they may be, that I believe such participation by veterans are harbingers of a political paradigm shift. More

Occupy Wall Street – Why I Must Be Stupid.

Apparently there are so many smart people out there that I’m blessed by my ignorance. The whole “non-demand demands” of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) just confuses the heck out of me. I’m thinking “What do OWS folks stand for?”, but the best I can come up with before the Union Co-Op and Prezzie support group started was here.   Let’s just take a look one-by-one:

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Free trade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Awesome! Everyone will have more fiat money to purchase fiat imported goods which will in turn support Amerika! Oh. Not so much. Let’s move on to the next.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.
