AN UNDERCLASS VIEW OF OCCUPATION VS. CONFISCATION

AN UNDERCLASS VIEW OF OCCUPATION VS. CONFISCATIONS

The Occupy Movement is spreading like wild fire all across America. The Occupy people are out in the streets of America like rebels united by a collected sense of being taken advantage of by the rich and powerful. The Tea Party movement has a stated purpose and a goal, their intent to take the country and the Presidency back is well known. If you ask, take it back from whom? The people with the signs, teabag hats, bearing arms will tell you quickly, Obama, the Democrats and Liberals. The occupy people are out there because of an undefined feeling felt nationwide by people of all political persuasions. It is not easy to define a feeling when it’s base on things you can’t prove is true. People may feel that they are being taken advantage by the rich and powerful, but it isn’t what you know, but what you can prove. The rich and powerful hate rules and regulations because if rules and regulations are passed the people could point to violations that put them at a disadvantage. Those that have violated the people’s trust claim, truthfully, “That they have broke no law or committed no crime” Deregulation is another way the Tea Party wants to take the country backwards. I believe if the Tea Party can say things they can’t prove, what’s good for the goose is good for the Occupy Moment.

OCCUPATION OR CONFISCATION

The Occupy Movement wants to occupy the Nation and reoccupy the millions of jobs and homes lost in the last ten years. The Tea Party movement wants to confiscate the Government and the Presidency. The American people have two sets of policies and intent to choose from in 2012. The Republican policies and intentions have been demonstrated the last eight years of the Bush Presidency and the last two and a half of the Obama Presidency. The President and the majority of Democrats have demonstrated their policies and intentions the last two and a half. When the votes are counted and if the Republicans win, the Tea Party wins, or they lose. If the President and Democrats win the Occupy movement wins. I believe that the middle class, we the people, the grass roots and underclass will not be served if the Republicans have their way in 2012. I base my beliefs on the policies and intent of the 2010 Tea Party- Republicans in the House and Senate. By 2012 no voter can say they don’t know the difference.

Very well stated Junko, I find it interesting that with all of the media that has covered the Occupy Movement not one of the protestors interviewed can seem to give a coherent response as to their goals for being there. Logic dictates that out of the thousand of people protesting at least fifty percent would have a defined purpose. This tells me that those comments are lying on the cutting room floor. I hope you don’t mind, but if I could I would like to leave a short piece of poetry for your readers to ponder.

So ignorant are the money gods

So deaf are their souls

That cannot understand the children’s cries

From the darkened holes

They say let us have a world

A world without fear

One that we can thrive in

One we can hold dear

These are rebel children

Cry out the gods made of molt

And they send the axmen

To behead the rebel colts

But in the darkness are whispers

Then rumbles from town to town

We children have united

And are coming to put you down

I just really liked the simplicity and message of these prose.

Hi, Junko, yes indeed, it is not hard to see who the villain is in this story. It will be crucial that the amorphous Occupy movement, finds its voice and channel its anger and frustration against those that have been pouring salt on the wound. Those are the GOP, Tea Party, plutocrats. I certainly hope that we can get the political muscle potential in play well before the 2012 elections! Nice hub, Junko, thanks Cred2

Junko, I can appreciate well your stance here and in total neither agree totally nor do I disagree. I have reached my goal for this life so I'm of neither party or a bagger and don't want to be. I try and stay out of these arguments. However the folks at Wall Street, I don't know for sure, was it the birth of this movement?

They have a right to assemble, yes, soldiers are dying for that right, right now.

A right to never leave Wall Street and go home then come back at the expense of 80,000 dollars a day or 560,000 dollars each 7 days they continue to do what ever it is they are doing, that is where their right ends, in my opinion. If the excuse is they traveled far and have no money to clear out at dark, they should have thought of that detail prior to going.

I think curfew hours need to be set and obeyed to allow street cleaners to tidy up the area at night.No?

It sure would make appearances better and cut costs by a good margin.

I understand your statements as to who gets the White-house and the whys of it all. I don't approve of the action of the federal government backward through time a long long way, most recently, 8 Clinton years and the Free Trade, moving into the Bush 8 of irresponsibly spending just like all but at accelerated speed that carried right into our current administration and none of it has benefited any one. In 1972 Nixon and his cronies damn near killed me and were responsible for short sheeting the bed and a whole lotta dying took place in the events that followed. I don't think we have had a God fearing government in my life time and I don't expect we ever will.

We are at a time a Bible thumpin Gun hugger like me thinks that we need to do a whole lotta praying for everyone in this country, and rise above and unite as "we the people" while the system of checks and balances still exist. I send an email to a congress member every day, even those of other states, Imagine everyone doing that who owns a computer we are in a non-partisan rut, it may have been party that got us here but it is all of us that needs to shoulder up and help each other out, as human-beings.

great hub,

Peace Amigo,

Junko, I wish that somehow the occupy movement can find a common cause and speak in one voice nationwide. You expressed a clear difference in the two movements. thanks

Mary, I’m not sure that is a good thing. When there is a definite gripe and agenda then we begin to wonder who is really behind a movement. The Tea Party club claimed to be grass roots but all they did was mimic the radio heads, showing their real agenda. Occupy Wall Street is a myriad of complaints all focused on one enemy. That is what a grass roots movement should be.

Mary, Squad Leader has a good point about an indentifiable confirmed agenda being used against the movement. Thank you both for commenting.

As usual I find your assesments to be on the very pulse of the heartbeat of what is the truth of the endeavors of the different factions spoken of here. It is A given that the people are truly being handled like chomps (Yet I must confess that it is our own fault) I applaud you with a loud and resounding hand Junko.We have allowed ourselves to be puns fed with a spoon full of ignorance.

Let us please not let ourselves become the filth that is the food they (Republicans),(Tea Party)forced fed us with. We need to wake up!!!....

    The Republican agenda is a nonstarter, but the Democrats and Obama are not trustworthy either. They all must be taken to task they must prove their purpose and trust must be earned. Obama has a long way to go to prove his trustworthyness. Look at what they do not what they say,

    Thanks, for the comment Peter. I find the Democrats and Obama's policies hard to judge because only a few have passed and they all have been held up and, or challenged. His approach to to solving the American Car Industry's economic crissis was successfully handled, inspite not because. His and the Democrat's intent is as I stated, well known, so is the Republican's policies which has been demostrated without check. There is no time to take either party to task. It's time to stop, look, and listen and vote like your life depends on your vote.

    Dear junko for the most part I strongly agree with you.Because when I hear statements like some of our leaders saying that their only mission is to see Obama fail or become a one & done President, I have a problem with that. Because that means they are not working for we the people who are paying our taxes and trying to make ends meet to support our families, but for themselves, because they continue to get rich off our dime while our taxes & medical expenceses continue to rise. As you know I'm not for any Party in particular because I have voted for both sides base on my convictions for me and my family.So they all need to get together & work for the people who sent them there to do a job.That's fix the problem or AT LEAST TRY to get our business done. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME real man

    It's nice to hear from a real man, thanks for the comment. I agree with your agreement with me. We and all can see and hear what happened and what is happening now. But will hate blind the people? We'll see soon.

    Thank You for supporting the Occupy Movement, Mr. Junko! As an Occupier, I am grateful for people such as yourself who bring forth the conversation about the change which needs to take place in our societies. Corruption is rampant and the elected politicians are no longer representing the common man - they represent lobbyists and interest groups.

    I know many people are looking at the Occupy Movement and they are demanding leaders and solutions but I urge people to have patience. I do not think we should rush with judgement of what we need to do. I am of the opinion that more people have to join this conversation, in order to come to any fruitful concensus.

    This is just the beginning of a new chapter. Things take time but what has been put in motion cannot be stopped now. I thank You once again for your support - we do need it out on the streets.

    "Together United We'll Never Be Defeated" - "We Are the 99%!"

    Cheers!
