Occupy Wall Street Demands Example

The following is an example of what the Occupy Wall Street Movement wants, however, as the disclaimer states, "There is NO official list of demands."  Pardon me, you bring hundreds of people onto Wall Street to protest and you have no demands?   Kinda sounds like "Change you can believe in." No demands, no plan, just protesting.

Take a look at the demands and you will see some pretty unrealistic ideas. Can you imagine all debt being cancelled? How about free education or  trillions being spent on infrastructure with our current debt problem.  None of these proposals will ever see the time of day, however, protesters who want to change the country will be attracted to outrageous ideas.

I don't understand why they did not include mandatory unisex bathrooms for all public places, the proposal would make as much sense as the rest of the ideas they proposed. 

Occupy Wall Street and the best of the Occupy organizations are not  friends of the American people. It appears as if they are staged and orchestrated events. Without any goals, the only explanation that I can perceive it that it is meant to be anarchy. What do you think?

Here is the posting:

Proposed List Of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement! (User Submitted)
Posted Sept. 25, 2011, 3:46 p.m. EST (13 days ago) by anonymous
Admin note: This is not an official list of demands. This is a forum post submitted by a single user and hyped by irresponsible news/commentary agencies like Fox News and This content was not published by the collective, nor was it ever proposed or agreed to on a consensus basis with the NYC General Assembly. There is NO official list of demands.

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.
Demand four: Free college education.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.
Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.
These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

Occupy Wall Street and Tea Party The Same?

The mouth, Joe Biden, says that those rabblerousers that are protesting on Wall Street are cut out of the same cloth as  the Tea Party.  Now I have not been to see the Occupy Wall Street or other Occupy locations, but I can see some big differences from the Tea Party events which I have attended.

First of all,  the Tea Party people are law abiding, respectful, conservative citizens who believe in the Constitution. Signs that are hateful or mean are cashiered.  From what I have observed, the attendees want their country back from the government, reduced taxes, more freedom and less interference from agencies.

On the other side, the Occupy people are law breakers (today they closed down the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.), liberal, and communist inspired and funded by Soros. The hateful (Nazi) signs and the verbiage used by the protesters are atrocious. You would not see them at a Tea Party. Additionally, they have some pretty outrageous demands.  (Our next post will give you an example.)

Sorry Joe, obviously  you have not been at  a Tea Party rally and  probably not at an Occupy protest. Once again Joe is talking through his hat.

Here is the ABC News report:

Biden Likens Occupy Wall Street Protests to Tea Party

EMMANUEL DUNAND/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Vice President Joe Biden today likened the Occupy Wall Street protests to expressions of grassroots frustration by members of the Tea Party.
“Let’s be honest with one another,” Biden told an audience on camera at the Washington Ideas Forum. “What is the core of that protest? The core is: The bargain has been breached. The core is the American people do not think the system is fair, or on the level. That is the core is what you’re seeing with Wall Street," Biden claimed.
“There’s a lot in common with the Tea Party,” he said. “The Tea Party started, why? TARP. They thought it was unfair.”

Biden's statement comes despite the fact that the Tea Party movement espouses conservative values, while the patische of motivations from the Occupy Wall Street protests -- wealth redistribution, universal health care, and the like -- are hallmarks of many on the opposite side of the political fence.
Biden cited Bank of America’s recent decision to impose a $5 monthly fee on some debit card users as an example of new perceived unfairness related to the banking sector that has fueled more popular frustration.
“The middle class folks, these guys with the debit cards, are on their back. And [banks] are going to charge them $5 to use the cards? At minimum, they are totally tone-deaf,” Biden said.

This week, Frank Keating, CEO of American Bankers Association, blamed Senator Dick Durbin, the Illinois Democrat, for mandating the hikes.  "As a direct result of the Durbin Amendment," Keating told ABC News in am email, "consumers have started paying for financial services they previously enjoyed free of charge. Unfortunately, this proves that whenever government tries to control pricing of a product or service, consumers lose."

Jews Oppose Palestinian State

In the attached article by Morton Klien, you will read about a new survey on Jewish attitudes toward the proposed Palestinian State.  Among other very interesting observations, this new study shows that even one of Mr. Obama's most dependable voting blocks, are starting to desert  him.  When less than 50% support a President, he is in trouble.

Here is the poll:

New Poll: Most Jews Oppose Palestinian State

Morton A. Klein - ZOA and AJC,  October 5th, 2011

The 2011 American Jewish Committee (AJC) Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion has found for the first time that a majority of American Jews (55%) oppose the creation of a Palestinian state, whereas only 38% support its creation. In contrast, in the 2010 AJC Survey, only 45% opposed creating a Palestinian state, while 48% favored its creation. In the 2009 AJC Survey, 41% opposed creating a Palestinian state, whereas 49% favored its creation.
The Survey also found that an overwhelming 76% of American Jews agree with the statement that ‘The goal of the Arabs is not the return of occupied territories but rather the destruction of Israel,’ whereas only 19% disagree with it. Also, a clear majority of 59% of American Jews oppose re-dividing Jerusalem in the context of an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty, while only 37% favor this course. Also, a majority of 53% disapprove of President Obama’s handling of U.S./Israel relations, whereas only 40% approved of his performance in this sphere.
The Survey also recorded the following results:
  • A plurality of 48% of American Jews disapprove of President Barack Obama handling of the presidency, while only 45% approve.
  • Similarly, a plurality of 48% of American Jews disapproved of President Obama’s handling of foreign policy, while 47% approved.
  • Conversely, 54% of American Jews approved of the Netanyahu government’s handling of U.S./Israel relations, whereas only 32% disapproved.
  • Large majorities of American Jews regard anti-Semitism as a problem in the Arab-Muslim world (99%), Europe (92%) and the U.S. (84%).
  • 88% of American Jews disapprove of Palestinian efforts to unilaterally seek recognition of Palestinian statehood at the U.N. without signing a peace agreement with Israel, as opposed to a mere 9% who approve.
  • An overwhelming 73% of American Jews favor the Congress withdrawing U.S. aid to Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority (PA) if it forms a unity government with Hamas, whereas only 21% would oppose this.
  • A near-unanimous 96% of American Jews believe the Palestinians must accept Israel as a Jewish state in any final peace settlement that might be signed, with only 3% dissenting.
  • 56% of American Jews favor the U.S. taking military action against Iran if diplomacy fails to halt its march towards acquiring nuclear weapons, whereas only 38% oppose this.
  • 68% of American Jews favor Israel taking military action against Iran if diplomacy fails to halt its march towards acquiring nuclear weapons, whereas only 26% oppose this (AJC 2011 Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion, September 6-21, 2011).
