Issues raised by Occupy Wall Street were social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the perceived undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. The OWS slogan, We are the 99%, refers to income inequality and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population."

The Evils of Unregulated Capitalism
by Joseph Stiglitz





PLEASE NOTE: The quotation that appears within the above graphic was altered slightly before going viral. The actual quote appears below:

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

Source: From The Papers of Dwight David Eisenhower, Volume XV - The Presidency: The Middle Way

That doesn't alter the fact, however, that the "splinter group" is stupid! Besides, I LOVE the fact that Mitch McConnell, the "poster child" for stupid, is standing next to President Eisenhower (obviously Photoshopped) into the graphic...


"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

If men develop weapons that are so terrifying as to make the thought of global war include almost a sentence for suicide, you would think that man's intelligence and his comprehension... would include also his ability to find a peaceful solution."

About Me I don't take myself too seriously. I'd never knowingly inflict pain on anyone. I've learned that no matter how much love hurts, it's worth the cost. I've also learned to be patient, and that time changes a person's perspective.
