Occupy Orlando Days 5 & 6 “Take it off-Take it all off!”




Legalized Pot and The Post Office


I have an idea that could solve two problems. Legalize Pot and make it only available through the Post Office. Order it from The USPS and then they can deliver it. Two problems solved!!!

Term Limits, Occupy the World with changes

I have been listening to all that has been said about the wall street views,the politics etc...

We are the people we have been waiting for to make changes Now.

The solution I see is that Term Limits need to be applied to all posts in the goverment as well the the Supreme court! where most of the problems are brewing..

The corporations taxed and if they do not pay the taxes then they do not sell here in the US as they are not US companies! (any corp taking their jobs else where, stay there.

Rich taxed and if they are the job makers then make the jobs!!!

Feudalism alias American Capitalism

Keep up the good work Thom! You hit the nail on the head a few shows back when you described how America was on its way to becoming a neo-feudal society. Your listners might be interested to know about an excellent free online book called “Feudalism alias American Capitalism”

Wall Street

Obama has gotten more money from Wall Street than the GOP canidates.

Mexico's newest export to U.S. may be water, are American jobs being flushed?

SAN DIEGO — Mexico ships televisions, cars, sugar and medical equipment to the United States. Soon, it may be sending water north.

Western states are looking south of the border for water to fill drinking glasses, flush toilets and sprinkle lawns, as four major U.S. water districts help plan one of two huge desalination plant proposals in Playas de Rosarito, about 15 miles south of San Diego. Combined, they would produce 150 million gallons a day, enough to supply more than 300,000 homes on both sides of the border.

$2.5 million Victoria's Secret Fantasy Treasure Bra should be a big seller amongst the ruling class.

What's that? Don't have a job? Lost your house? Can't find enough to feed your kids? BAH, silly little peasants are we with our sense of entitlement. Government is here to serve the economic elite - you just pay into it for shits and giggles.

Was Lehman brothers allowed to go bankrupt on purpose to frustrate Capital formation unsympathetic to the West?

In some respects Lehman's bankruptcy helped set off a chain reaction that dramatically changed the wealth of many developed and developing countries. Was the financial shock meant to disrupt formation of Capital skills and abilities somewhere that may prove to be unsympathetic to existing concentrations of Wealth in America?

Libya, Egypt, and Afghanistan are examples of Capitalist Creative Destruction.

Libya, Egypt, and Afghanistan are examples of the Capitalist economic concept of Creative Destruction. The Obama and Bush Administrations engaged in these three situations, in large part, in an attempt to create conditions that could absorb surplus Western Capital. There are Capital opportunities in chaos and even simple change.

Obama and money from Wall Street

Thom keeps sounding off that president Obama is getting less funds from Wall street and the financial sector than Mitt Romney is but he should check the Washington Post today (10/20/11) and their article showing how Obama IS still way ahead of all the republicans COMBINED when it comes to monitary contributions from the financial sector - he is still in the pockets of Wall Street and will always be (I'm afraid to say).

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
