Occupy Movement and Instinct

Lately, I hear a lot about the Occupy Movement needing to have a leader and specific demands. I think the problem with this thinking is a misunderstanding of what the Occupy Movement is about.

Saving Social Security

The Republicans keep saying that Soc. Sec. needs to be saved because it is running out of money. One way to save it is to raise the cap on the amount people pay into the fund. The raise, each year, in the cap should be the same as the raise given to recipients which is based on cost-of-living or inflation. The cap has not been raised since the inception of the program in1964 at $106,800. This should keep the fund financailly sound for decades.

Final letter to my president...

Dear Mr. Obama,

Why is MY country supplying weapons & supporting the Corrupt & Oppressive EGYPTIAN ARMY while they brutally Murder & maim their own freedom-seeking people?

If this reprehensible, IMMORAL, behavior on OUR part is consistent with "American interests" then we truly are a bankrupt nation.

Encouraging "restraint on ALL sides" can only be accurately described by one word I know of (pardon me): "Chickenshit".

Immigration Regulations, Big Government, Free Markets & Punks.

Why is it necessary for those who hate BIG GOVERNMENT and Regulations and believe the "free market" is All-Powerful to so quickly abandon their rhetoric on the subject of (Hispanic) Immigration? Do they have so little Faith in the strength of their Great "invisible hand" that they must cowardly abandon their principles & resort to Big Government style regulating on Immigration to hedge their bets?

This week, leaders from around the world are meeting in Paris to work out the future of global climate action.

But, while our President is overseas trying to come up with climate solutions, Republicans back in the states are undermining him at every turn. And, their typical obstruction could pose a threat to the entire Paris summit.
