washington and wall street are too big to take on

Recommended Posts

Plain and simple and I just want to hear if people think this is a possible way to take our power back and start making Washington work for us and Wall Street lose at least a little and slowly maybe even more and more.

Instead of being the 99% camping out on Wall Street being labeled as losers, lazy and many other negative things we somehow turn our attention to the media starting with local news stations in as many towns as we can. Start picketing them to follow up on stories they initially start about corruption in government locally including branches where funds were misused by those in charge of education, human services, etc. In Des Moines we had the head of education give herself some ridiculous raise in the hundreds of thousands while school budgets were cut further and further down, art, music and drama programs cut, grades dropped among students due to teacher cut backs and more. The local news reported her name and her crime. Congress requested her appear and answer questions. She refused a few times. No warrant or arrest was made like should be the case. Then, in the end, she appeared, answered some questions that weren't very tough considering her crime. Nothing more was ever reported. Her name was forgotten. Did she have to pay the money back. I don't think so but there was no local news program that claimed this to be an outrage. I don't even remember if they followed up with the findings. No jail time was heard of but she lost her position.

Let's push the reporters to stop giggling about their own banter and a goat that was confused in traffic this morning and make them remember that their real purpose was to be the watchdogs for the people. Let's make it not so fun to go into work and leave the building throughout the day until they giggle less and deal with the serious stuff more.

That's what they want us to think even though it's not true. If we stop listening to their phony messages, stop buying their products and stop voting for their hand picked candidates and incumbents we can take America back sure enough.

Solutions must involve the system as it was before it got corrupted.

 

The Senate should be appointed by the state Governors to do their bidding, not the Feds biddings.

 

This should cut alot of crap out of federal budget and leave more money and power to the states.

 

State education prices and policies, state welfare standards, state EPA etc.

 

Cut the Fed back down to national defence, national currency and post, and national foreign relations.

 

They're the monster that we've allowed to grow.

Wall St. protesters turned out to be hard core drug abusers, rapists, and just general bums. Shitting and pissing in the streets did not help the cause. The OP is in Iowa. Get your butt out and vote in the primary. Elect someone who you think will change the system. By the way, how did hope and change turn out for you?
