After roughly 700 protesters were arrested earlier this week in New York City during demonstrations against the excesses of Wall Street, a handful of Vermonters are stepping up actions in the Green Mountain State.

Read these comments and you may understand how successful the rich have been persuading the poor to vote against their own self interest. The rich have always been able to count on the general stupidity of the masses of Americans to suffer quietly and turn against their own kind, while the rich band together and increase their own wealth. The rich are rich because they are smarter and work as a group to solidify their control while the masses squabble and eat each other.

"work as a group"? I don't think so. It is dog eat dog.
But I do agree that the rich are usually smarter if by that you mean they make better choices in their lives such as staying in school (the unemployment rate for college grads is 4%) and they are smarter because they choose to be harder working.

It's been said that Democracy grows into Oligarchy and finally political chaos. I think that is happening now and the process will increase as the competition for scarce resources become more pronounced and as the population rate increases without any let up.
Competition and greed, both necessary as evolutionary tools for survival, unfortunately have become so inculcated in the mind, that these latent survival tools will prove to be our undoing as a planetary civilization.
I wonder what later alien races will think about us as they sift through the detretis of our civilization.
#68 Nov 23, 2011
good points, until your stupid aliens crapola.
ain't no damn aliens and even if there were I'm sure they'd have better things to do than to sift thru our sh't

I think the Republican party should be outlawed and those with thoughts other than the progressives should be sent to a re-education camp so they will think like us. Their wealth should be taken and given to the poor via gov't distribution. Hey, let's go bust some windows on wall st and while at it make a book pire of any conservative writers. Scary thing here is their are those in agreement with what I wrote, isn't that right you little brown shirts?

Did you witness the behavior of some consumers this Black Friday ? Can you imagine the behavior of the well armed American masses when our social system breaks down and a potable glass of water is worth as much as gold ? Will it matter if you call yourself a Liberal or Conservative if your wife needs to cover you with a shotgun as you walk out to your backyard for some task ?
#72 Nov 26, 2011
I have the shotgun already. We will just shoot flatlanders without even asking questions about why they are here. The urbanites will immigrate to Vermont in droves and we won't want to let them.
#73 Nov 27, 2011
The Flatlanders are as well armed and well organised as you are.
Ok my point was that I fear what happened to all civilizations will happen to us unless there is some kind of thought change and I don't know if the human mind is able to change that drastically and abruptly.
Greed and self interest and aggression seem to be habituated into the human DNA.
You think ?
#74 Nov 27, 2011
If you consider human behavior from the perspective of evolution and what makes the human most likely to survive then Greed, self inrterest (self interest includes protecting the tribe ) and aggression (but only when it is without risk) are in fact characteristics we have evolved to. And we would have to evolve away from it for it to change and to some degree we are as aggression is much more controlled than it was say...a hundred years ago...but that is only because we implement self interest.
As for the guns...Vermonters have more guns per capita than any other state...and it is not the people who have moved here who own them. More guns and the least gun crime.
#75 Nov 27, 2011
ok, I just don't see a way out of the future.
#76 Nov 27, 2011
The way lies in understanding and accepting what and who people are. Trust everyone but cut the cards. Be an optimist but don't set yourself up for too big a let down. Remember that being kind and charitable are both things that people do without being asked and they don't do it for moral reasons ...they do it because of self interest. And that is ok and in fact a better reason than some sort of "morality". Look for the objective rationalizm in your life.

"...when our social system breaks down..."
--pppffffttt!'when'?!?(see the short vid below)
-BTW, the biatch ain't able to cover urass with the shotgun since she's too busy downtown fighting the Big Fight- to get that all important $2 chinese made waffle maker!->
Your 2012 Vote choices:
1- Re-elect Obama or vote for most any of the Republican candidates, all who want to take away your right to own a gun as Romney and CFR member Gingrich do,
Vote in President Ron Paul who will do away with the welfare state which is why so many fat stupid welfare-taking ugly Americans are at Walmart going nuts for such cheap crap anyhow, AND he'll do away with the globalist's damn 'free trade' schemes which is why we don't manufacture many wealth producing 'value-added goods' here in the U.S. anymore, and since he'll outlaw the unlawful 'money' we've put up with for decades (those non-federal 'Federal' Reserve dept notes in your wallet) then we'll get back to Constitutionally lawful metals-backed currency from a National Bank as it's supposed to be and without the international banksters robbing us anymore we'll be able to prosper and have a thriving economy and 'middle class' again.
We'll also have to outlaw breeding among the low class, the idiot sheeple class, like those rioting at the walmarts and those voting for anyone But Ron Paul.
