Tax the corporations!!!!

Why?

Fifty percent of the legal residents of this country pay NO income taxes. The only realistic way to share the federal tax burden with these freeloaders is to raise corporate income tax on businesses engaged in any retail sales or services. The increased taxes will get passed along to every customer in the form of higher prices, and the freeloaders will then be "contributing" something toward the debt of which they are the principal beneficiary.

Secondly, enforce immigration laws. Did anyone see the report this week that Alabama's jobless rate dropped almost point since they implemented an immigration enforcement scheme this Summer? Has anyone noticed that 1/3 of your property taxes go to the school system? How much of that is for the spawn of illegal aliens? Who wouldn't benefit from a 15 percent reduction in their property taxes with no loss of local government services? Stack on top of that the collateral reduction in police and social services, and it sure looks like a pain-free, economic stimulus package.

To: RONNY - Yes there have definitely been seriously egregious crimes committed in the camps either by camp members or people who just wander into the camp, because they don't have an admission fee to join the movement or a velvet rope to keep the undesirables out, or a psych exam to show mental fitness. But its a freaking handful out of how many thousands of protestors spread out across the country? The world? Rape and murder are horrific crimes and should not be tolerated on any level. But those crimes do not define the movement as a whole. The genius of the movement is its refusal to tie itself to a particular set of demands. The grievances are so extensive—a lack of jobs, a unequal distribution of income, a decline in educational opportunities, a lack of affordable housing, the high cost of medical care, corporate funding of elections—that the entire system has to be taken on.
Civil disobedience is the hallmark of political protest. Putting yourself and your message out of the way of those who would see it and politely following along with the forces who seek to undermine you is a failure of action. These protestors are not violent, and there's been no case of the protestors attacking police officers directly.
So the biggest success the Tea Party has under its belt is sending another round of politicians to become part of that corrupt den of ineptitude, when clearly part of the problem is the corruption that has become inherent in the legislative branch. The only time you hear about the Tea Party these days is for elections and taxes. In essence their demands just rearranged deck chairs on the Titanic despite their group being just as disgusted with the bailouts as OWS. I guess having billionaires on your side (which is clearly a sign you're doing something wrong if you're anti-bailouts for the rich and billionaires want to help you out) makes it easier to organize demands that fall within a certain party's line or current political playbook.
