“If we open up our borders … we could suppress wages of middle class jobs” – Alan GreenspanWe need to suppress the wage levels of the skilled. We need to suppress wages in comparison to the “lesser skilled ” - Alan Greenspan
Liberals fail to recognize that modern conservatives are direct evidence of the failure of the public education system.
The only real narrative at work here can be derived from the mission statement released by those who helped to organize and start this thing, and decries the unfairness of the current system, where people who work for their money are having a hard time of it, getting laid off, seeing their collective bargaining rights get taken away from them, seeing their jobs shipped overseas, seeing their tuition and health care costs going up and up and up as far as the eye can see, coming out of school with ridiculous amounts of debt while those who make their money speculating sit back and live like barons.
There are Republicans condescending here when they run their crooked flywheels that these people are looking for a gov't handout.
They're not. They want basic fairness. A system that appears to work for them instead of against them the way they've seen it going the last decade.
Unlike the teabaggers, these are peaceful people who aren't bringing guns to their rallies. They are bringing their drums and musical instruments and songs though, along with humor and imagination and an overall feeling that something is terribly broken and needs to be addressed like the day before yesterday.

However, this could be the start of a bigger, more organized movement, with greater focus. And I still think there can be much common ground between this movement and the Tea Party. Basically, we're all sick of the status quo of shitty government.
Looking at the array of signs these idiots made up I came to the conclusion that they have no specific agenda. I especially like the "genocide" sign.........what a band of morons.
Take a good hard look, it's coming.
Interesting that they are demanding a Presidential Commission to investigate what Sarah Palin recently spoke out against- "crony capitalism."
Guess they actually believe that drivel.
A is A
This movement is kind of comical but it also has a French Revolution feel to it. The sooner it peters out the better, imo.
