New Pillage Rising

The upper class running out of things to pillage is coming at you again. Obama is turning out to be more like Margret Thatcher; you better call organizing for America and let them know your thoughts...
Fear Not to Stand Up for your Rights
Fear Not to Stand Up for your Rights
Obama looking for room to compromise is investigating how to reduce your social security. I can't believe it;after 30 years of labor they want another 20 years. Parts 1 and 2 seem to have Obama doing the crime Bill Clinton on you( that is the robbing or criminalizing you).

My city feels like a crime scene and the criminals are all melting into the night, fleeing the scene. No, I'm not talking about the kids in black who smashed windows and burned cop cars on Saturday...

Not only that, they want you to be their slave til you are seventy years old and going to drop dead from overwork so there will be no need to pay.
Obama has created a commission on social security that is led by notorious "elder haters" imo.
here's an exerpt of this interview/ article, i urge everyone to read it:

"DEAN BAKER: Well, a commission is very, very worrisome. It's chaired, you know President Obama picked Alan Simpson, former senator from Wyoming, who's made a career out of beating up on old people—he thinks it's cute. I don't know if he's delusional or what, but he talks about how old people drive into their gated communities in their Lexuses. Maybe his friends do. We have the data. Very few others do. And then the Democratic co-chair was Erskine Bowles, who's getting—he's a Wall Street guy. He gets over $300,000 a year as a director of Morgan Stanley, a firm that should be famous to everyone, because it would be out of business without the taxpayers' support. And he, right off the bat, said, "Well, we're going to have to cut Social Security." So, President Obama's two lead appointees, his co-chairs, are both on record saying they want to cut Social Security. This should have people very, very worried. That isn't a balanced commission.

AMY GOODMAN: Simpson was also recently quoted talking about older people as "lesser people."

DEAN BAKER: Yeah, Senator Simpson is quite a character. I mean, this whole commission is really fishy in any number of different ways. Among other things, they're holding their meetings in secret. But they even went a step further, because you had a reporter, Alex Lawson, who works with the group Social Security Works, who interviewed Senator Simpson as he's going in or out of one of the meetings, and Simpson, you know, could not control himself, made this comment about "lesser people," and it was rather insulting, used several curse words. And I guess to avoid having Senator Simpson embarrass himself again, they now not only have the meetings in secret, but they actually do not disclose the location, so that you won't have another occasion where a reporter asks Senator Simpson questions and then he makes a fool of himself, essentially. So, again, this should be disconcerting... "
