Thread Name: BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street)
Subject: RE: BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street)
Lakoff transcends the Dems and Repubs parties and talks about the personalities that
go for authoritarian or nourishing points of view. The ones that contain both elements, he calls "biconceptuals".
Rather than bang away at the Reactionaries, it's best to emphasize the positive aspects of
a nourishing society and that privatization comes from the public quarter. The monied wealth of this country owe we the people for allowing them to have it and now they want to hoard it all and steal money from us.
The one percent are robbing us. They won't get away with it now. The genie is out of the bottle and the OWS will not go away because it affects so many lives.
The Tea Party does not represent the American people, it is manufactured and financed by Wall Street. When will the Tea Partiers get that? They are delusional because if they defend millionaires they think they might become one of them and that ain't gonna' happen. They've been sold a phony story about how everyone can make it here and that's just a lie.
Herman Cain is perpetuating that lie by telling working people that they deserve what they get. The Horatio Alger thing was never true, it was folklore like George Washington cutting down the cherry tree...it never happened.
There were ruthless business types who clawed and stole their way to the top, gamed the system and crapped on the rest of us. Now that has to change.
Back to Occupy Wall Street!
