President Obama: Lowest Jobless Rate Since I Took Office

 

President Obama tells the American people that as a nation we are moving forward four years after the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. He says while there’s more work to do, America‘s businesses have added 5.2 million jobs over the past 31 months and the unemployment rate is at the lowest level since the President took office. To keep our country moving forward, he saysCongress should act on the President’s plan to keep taxes low for 98% of the American people, rather than holding it hostage to give more budget-busting tax cuts to the wealthiest 2%. Congress should cut red tape so responsible homeowners can save about $3,000 a year on their mortgage by refinancing at lower rates, and act on the President’s proposal to create a veterans jobs corps to help our returning heroes find work. He says it’s time for our elected leaders to get back to work to help the middle class and build our economy from the middle-out, not the top down.

Romney thugs throw out the 99% from his CPAC 2012 speech

Here is just another taste of what a Romney Presidency would ultimately look like.  He has no clue what the 99% are going through, and he tends to see America through altruistic rose colored glasses.  It doesn’t matter that millions are out of work and millions more are losing their homes, as long as his dividend checks keep rolling in, all will be fine.  Check out footage of the 99% getting roughed up and ejected from Romney’s 2012 CPAC speech.

Did Obama ignore #OWS in State of the Union?

President Obama delivered his State of the Union address which kept everyone in the room on their feet. Obama touched on many major issues from economic fairness to no bailouts and claimed himself a defender of middle-class America. Many Occupy Wall Street protesters don’t feel Obama is a real defender of the middle-class and believe his words had no merit. So is there substance behind the words?

Dear Mr President (This is Why We’re Here)

The Occupy Movement has sparked many artist to express their support for the Occupy Movement through music. The latest is Gabriel Quinn Andreas of Occupy Santa Barbara.

Andreas sings……..

“We gave you a fair chance, and this is how it went. Signed sincerely yours, The Other Ninety-Nine Percent.”

A protest song for the Occupy movement.

Dear Mr. President, this is why we’re here.
Allow us to explain, though it is probably clear:

Dear Mr. President, this is what we wanted.
To build homes, not bomb them but we
clearly can’t do it with all the drama in congress.
Like it’s all about your image, not doing what’s right.
Like it’s beers with the boys and we won’t even ask what you get up to in the white house at night.

We have assembled to plead the case
of people with troubles you tried to erase. You took an oath
to serve, were your fingers crossed when you said the words,
or was the meaning lost?

A patriot would put the brakes on this.
A patriot would not manipulate the populace.
A true patriot would never split the wax from the wick.
Apparently patriotism and politics don’t mix.

Dear Mr. President, this is why we’re here.
In good conscience we can’t let this go another year.
Unstuck from the corrupted order,
The people, that’s US, can no longer afford to
WAIT.

True Patriots sleep on streets
or in cells, a patriot’s spirit can never be held.
True patriotism is impossible to defeat -
ideas are invincible, they can’t be killed.

[chorus]
Of everything we needed done
you barely made a dent.
Of all your empty promises
was there even ONE you meant?

We gave you a fair chance
and this is how it went.
Signed,
Sincerely yours,

The Other Ninety-Nine Percent.

You drive us to the danger zone
and pretend to act surprised
while it’s clear you’ve spent the
last few years rolling your eyes.
Slavery is subsidized, freedom is a hoax, and you must have missed
that your list of laws is just a joke.

So here’s what’s gotta happen-
you’ve gotta see things from our side.
We tried to do things your way,
but that paradigm has died.

We stand before you peaceably
and are here to stay.
until you change.

And we say:

[chorus]

Arrests In Iowa:Campaigns Lock Out “Occupy” Message (w/Video)

They didn’t come to get arrested. “Occupy The Caucus” activists said they just wanted to have the campaigns of Ron Paul and Barack Obama listen to what they had to say. But at both presidential campaign headquarters in the Des Moines area, Occupy was locked out and people were eventually arrested when they refused to move away from the campaigns’ front doors.

This video from the protest outside Democratic Party headquarters was shot and edited by one of Occupy’s supporters Roger Routh. He is also a journalist in the Des Moines area.

What did the group want to tell the candidates? In Occupy “mic check” fashion the crowd repeated their bullet point list as one of their organizers spoke.

“I asked our friends who are sitting in front of the door why they are here. And we have a list. We’re here to stop the global military empire. We’re here because there’s too money in politics. We’re here because we’re shut out of the two major parities. We’re here because the federal reserve bank is backed by debt and oil and war. We’re here because the National Defense Authorization Act is wrong”

People were then asked to come forward and say why else there were there today.

“Under Obama more immigrants have been deported than under the eight years of Bush”, said one woman. “Immigrants help fuel our economy and we shouldn’t use them as scapegoats.

Another woman said “I am here because education shouldn’t lead to debt slavery. That is wrong. That is sick. And we are one of the only free nations where that happens.

The Associated Press reports five protesters were arrested outside Ron Paul’s headquarters in Ankeny, Iowa and 12 more were taken into custody outside the Democratic Party headquarters in Des Moines.

Obama NDAA OK Draws OccupyMN Protest At Obama Reelection HQ

Think bad thoughts about the government and you could go to jail…forever. That may sound like a Soviet-era law, but civil libertarians say it’s possible under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which is awaiting President Obama’s promised signature.

The NDAA, was passed by the US Senate 86 to 13. Minnesota senators split on the act, Franken opposing and Klobuchar voting for it. OccupyMN organized a pre-Christmas protest at the Minneapolis Obama Reelection Headquarters. The act is characterized by the ACLU and many others as a major assault on the Bill of Rights.

The 600 pages contain provisions that allow indefinite detention by the military of anyone, including US Citizens on US soil, without trial and without legal representation. The act makes it virtually impossible to close Guantanamo Bay. The Occupy movements in many cities other that Minneapolis have initiated actions against this act.

(Nashville, Portland, Los Angeles) Military Officers have spoken out against it even though it grants the military extensive new powers. Montanans launched a recall of senators voting for it. Former FBI agent turned activist Coleen Rowley said, “This will apply to Quakers, to Catholic workers, to people that oppose the death penalty.

All of these groups have been spied upon by the FBI. Ironically, this action takes it away from the FBI and gives it to the military.” OccupyMN promises more specifically targeted actions on other legislative figures.

Michele Bachmann “The Essence Of The Occupy Movement Is Having Other People Pay For Their Stuff”

Sometimes I think Michelle Bachmann is in her own little world, but that’s alright, at least they know her there.  There should be quite a few GOP‘ers dropping from the race in the coming weeks, and Michelle Bachmann should be at the front of the line.
