When the "Occupiers" camp in front of the White House for a few weeks, I'll stop calling them Democrat puppets.

When Obama bad mouths corporations well, that's not helpful in creating Jobs. also, lowering the min. wage would help!

HEY whiners, it's not the governments responsibility to get you a job. It's YOUR responsibility to get yourself a job. You do the work. People who wait for someone else to get them work are just lazy.

The problem with these poor souls is that they have been coddled and taken care of so long they think that it is their God-given right to impose on those of us who have found success through hard work. Many of them have been brain-washed into this mind set by subversive, far-left, progressive (communist) professors who want to see the demise of this nation. its Constitution and Bill of Rights. These professors are disgruntled, lazy, incompetent persons who find a niche in a safe and secure institution and spend their days pontificating to a class of young jello-heads. This is the professors' power-trip. These professors are dangerous to this nation and our citizens.

I believe it started in elementery school, when the no child left behind started. They don't give failing grades. They give students several chances to get correct answers. The know they'll graduate without doing the work. They expect good paying desk jobs out of high school. They won't look for these jobs. I think they expect someone to come to the door and offer them a job.

Government doesn't create Jobs..... Jobs are created when someone takes a risk and begins producing a product or service and if successful, then a Job is created..... IF these protesters would stop protesting and begin creating a product or service that others are will to purchase not only would they create a job form themselves but maybe for others.....

these protesters are too stupid or lazy or too bent on the destruction of our nation to create much of anything except violence and anarchy. The real danger is that many in the Obama administration appear to be with them.

If these chuckle h e a d s would ever become creative enough to produce or provide something they could sell, that would mean they would be capitalists and thusly, hypocrites. Much like the liberal elitists in Congress (who, by the way are the 1% they rail against).

That's what capitalism is all about, IF you want to succeed, and YOU put forth enough effort you CAN! We loose the Freedom to succeed or fail, we will loose everything

FOR THE UNINFORMED
the bush administration developed and installed the T A R P BAILOUT PROGRAM........................................NOT OBAMA
On December 19, 2008, President Bush used his executive authority to declare that TARP funds may be spent on any program he personally deems necessary to avert the financial crisis. This has allowed President Bush to extend the use of TARP funds to support the auto industry, a move supported by the United Auto Workers
TURN OFF FIX NEWS
02:17 PM on 12/05/2011
Democrat House and Senate wrote and passed the rules for TARP. Obama voted for it.
02:24 PM on 12/05/2011
Actually I think Obama voted "present"
02:36 PM on 12/05/2011
Too be honest Dan alot of Conservatives were against the TARP program,many at Fox. "Too Big to fail" is a sham. If you screw up and your business falters then it's too bad to be you. It's your fault,no bailout. Companies would have gone under but new ones would have popped up tp fill the void. That's how it works in America. Alot of Liberals think Conservatives were lock-step with GW. We weren't,we questioned alot of his choices.

It was he colapse of the housing market that started this loss of jobs in America and the way to fix it is to fix the housing market. There is so much involved with home building that people don't think about. Manufacturing,shipping, skilled and non-skilled labor to build them. It gos on and on.

thm4usa" well at a minimum a job should pay enough so that employees can pay to physically get to work, so that they dont start showing up naked, so that they do not appear to have AIDS as a result of malnutrition and maybe they should at least be able to buy aspirin to bring down a fever if they get sick. That way they might not collapse at work. Just wondering what you think they should earn? You should know is that workers for many American owned fast food and bixg box companies in viable countries like Germany or The Scandanvaian countries get at least 50 percent more in pay than their American counter parts, plus they get several weeks of paid time off and access to medical care. I know, we are 'exceptional" and since god is watching us all, nothing really bad can happen to Americna citizens, so why not let as many as possible get by on the lowest possibile wage. If that is too high, get your lobbyist to get congress to allow more kids to work for less. Upper middle class partents will probably pay you to get them out of the house. Then too, if things get really bad, these working poor types can still get food stamps and medical cards from the government saving their employers big bucks so the CEOS and bank lenders bonuses continue to rise.Of course the tax payers pay for it as price to avoid revolution.

i have a nephew in indiana who has trouble getting people to work for a good wage.
biggest reason the people cant be hired, THEY FAIL THE DRUG TEST AND A VERY SIMPLE MATH TEST. I would say most of the ows people fall into this catagory. they have a dozen applicants weekly have them take drug test and they all fail. so is it the fault of corps that this happens.

Hey 99 percenters...you can only "represent" me only when and after you clean up your act. You are not representing me in the 99'ers as I think you should be doing. An long overdue and prob a workable idea...but a bad way of going about it. 'nough said.

i4u2fer: If they all looked preppy in blue blazers, rep ties and penny loafers, nobody would take them seriously. Actually some show up preppy, some blue collar. Others have a "retired" look. One thing I can tell you after visting three Occupy sites, inlcuding Zucatti Park, I did not smell BO. I did not smell pot (mid afternoon) . I did see a variety of age groups and dress styles among the protestors and the multitude of visitors to Zucatti . Current right wing mythology is that most of the tent occupants and visitors are kids that come from families with incomes over $200,000. That is doubtful, although even a kid that graduated from NYU or Columbia who owes $300,000 in debt and cant get a job should participate. Most of the protestors ,as opposed to those who came for information, used placards to announce a concern.Visitors could pick and choose conversations. I did not see one example of uncilvilized anger. I never felt threatened. All but one of my conversations were with people over 55. One exception was a young fellow who attends the school from which I graduated.We had a converstaion about the corrupting influence of sports on education and the extent to which taxpayers are footing the bill for what should be private activities. The spinners at Fox and other billionaire owned media are working overtime to discredit the occupier Movement by painting them as doped up,smelly people who are lazy.Bullcrap!!!

TARP was the whole gang-who by the way are ruled by goldmach sachs
Obama man Imelt from GE seems to be sending plenty of jobs to China
Like our economy now? Very naive--we will have to pay for the bail outs, stimulus and health care, and wars for the next 30 years

the government and the corporations aren't problematic individually; the trouble is the relationship that has developed between them, and their connections with nearly all forms of mass media. when the same small group of people controls most of the legal, political and economic power, as well as the flow of information, dissent becomes extremely difficult. it's all a little too orwellian.
01:51 PM on 12/05/2011
Hilarious how they are talking about the main stream media like it is some "liberal" ptopaganda machine when it is really just the opposite-the complete and unabashed voice of the right wing Corporate Control that would make us all slaves if it could.

labeling the protesters as hippies, communists, and liberals. The right seems to being trying to paint a picture of the protests as an anarchist movement which wants to sound the death knell to capitalism.
These protesters are not calling for the end of capitalism though, all signs point to the majority calling for a return to the democratic capitalism which made America big and strong in the first place, a purer and more honest form of capitalism which in the past 30 years has slowly been replace with a new form of authoritative capitalism in which people are nothing but a plentiful resource in the pursuit of profit.

OWS were in my opinion at the beginning a bunch of folks who had a good and just point. Their problem was they should have stated their point and then returned home. The problem seems to be by sticking around so long they attracted evey radical and oddball that was out there thus making their movement look bad. The fact that Wall Street used fellow Americans money like it was their own personnal Las Vegas Casino should tee off anyone wether Liberal or Conservative.

Go to the white house occupiers, he left the keys under the mat while he`s in Hawaii.

Supposedly he's not going to Hawaii until the payroll tax is extended. He IS in Ohio or some other middle America place talking to citizens, unlike the Cogressional fat cats spending all their time fundraising with billionaires and Exxon and Big Pharma. Although, I am sure he will be doing plenty of that, too. No one gets elected without THAT money anymore.
