Our Community Organizer... LACKS the ABILITY and KNOWLEDGE to correct anything but GIVE OUT MORE OF YOUR MONEY.... THAT IS NOT THE ANSWER....

80 Trillion of Unfunded liabilities, i.e., Medicare, SS, etc.
730 Trillion in derivatives (funny money collapsing now and you're on the hook for it (so say the evil banksters)).

That's 826 TRILLION dollars in the hole:

\$826,000,000,000,000.00

To put this in perspective, let's say a stack of \$100 bills contains 100 actual \$100 bills in 1 inch. 100 \$100 bills = \$10,000. Now then \$826 Trillion divided by \$10,000 = 82,600,000,000 inches of \$100 dollar bills.

82,600,000,000 inches of \$100 dollar bills = 6,883,333,333 feet of \$100 dollar bills.

6,883,333,333 feet of \$100 dollar bills = 1,303,167.992 miles of \$100 dollar bills.

1,303,167.992 miles of \$100 dollar bills = 5.43 trips to the Moon.

In summary, the US is in debt at such a level that you could take \$100 bills and stack them on top of one another and the pile would reach to the MOON about 5 and a-half times. You could go to the Moon 5 and a half times with the stacking of the \$100 dollar bills.

Let this sink in. Look at the Moon next time you see it and imagine a stack of money from you to the moon-and-back, then to the moon-and-back again, and then back to the moon and little bit back toward you.

It is preposterous debt.

It is insane debt.

And you're going to have to live with the consequences of this stack of \$100 bills that is 5.5 times to the moon... by watching your children grow up debt slaves to the bankers in a 3rd world hell hole of a US falling apart with infrastructure that is so bad you may just move into a mud hut and drink swamp water and ride a horse again.

Your kids will only see ruins...

It is a new dark age.

Rome is Buring... USA DEBT - is now at \$16,256,367,214,324.44—an increase for this fiscal year of \$1,066,026,885,767.29. - Prior to fiscal 2008, the federal government had never increased its debt by as much as \$1 trillion in a single fiscal year. From fiscal 2008 onward, however, the federal government has increased its debt by at least \$1 trillion each and every fiscal year.

Under Barack Obama, the U.S. economy has performed worse than it did under any other president since the end of the Great Depression.

After every other recession since World War II, the U.S. economy always regained what was lost and got even stronger before the next recession began. During this “economic recovery”, we have not even come close to getting back to where we were in 2008. In fact, the number of Americans living in poverty and the number of Americans that are dependent on the government both continue to explode even as Barack Obama runs up trillions of dollars of new debt.

Anyone that believes that Barack Obama is going to “fix the economy” if he is given another four years in the White House has taken way too many sips of the Obama kool-aid. The truth is that Barack Obama is not going to save you. Barack Obama has royally messed up our economy (along with a lot of other things) and that is not something we should be thanking him for.

Rome is Buring... and Rember these...

Solyndra (Obama’s fundraiser \$527 million in stimulus money)
SpectraWatt (filed for bankruptcy)
Lightsquared (Obama’s investment insider trading) \$90,000.00 profit over night.

Socialism, communism, capitalism or any other form of society based on MONEY, is doomed to fail.

Money represent the SOURCE of : greed, crime, coruption, poverty.

No matter WHAT TYPE OF SOCIETY we are in now (because sure as hell is NOT capitalism) or we WILL BE IN, as long as is based on money (in ANY FORM) will undoubtely fail.

As I see it now, not only the elites but like 95% of the poors and what is left from middle class, cannot grasp the concept of a society without money.

However, they will have to understand it AND embrace it, otherwise we ar fucked hard.

I agree with the OP that it is all insane, but I must say that it won't matter who runs the United States (or any other nation for that matter) - the system hasn't been 'working' ever since the the 30s. Its all based on a stupid notion of perpetual exponential growth. A four year old can see that it is impossible to maintain.

The 'Boomer' generation have enjoyed the fraudulent and illusionary 'success' of the system post-war, but it was always going to end like this. The problem is that those in charge of the governments, banks and big corporation have grown-up knowing nothing else; they think the last five or six decades have been 'normal', whereas really they were the aberration.

Trying to get back to that 'normality', as they are indeed trying to do, is simply compounding the negative effects and making everything worse. There is no 'nice and easy' answer to any of this, and the only realistic outcomes lie far outside of most people's expectations.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

sad how most people are unwilling to or don't have the courage to see the truth for what it is. Fiat money < Lawful money everytime. Most morons can't understand this because they only understand economics at the most basic levels if at all. In their minds they see that they can obtain material goods using federal reserve notes so therefore the notes must have value. not realizing the only thing of value is your surety for the debts you are discharging. It's thing like this that the moron who put up the sovereign debunking thread fail to understand.

I find it humorous that the left finds the pie to finite when talking about profit, wealth, or property. They believe that for one to have more, another must by no fault of his own, have less. However; when we come to the idea of debt, well then the pie is limitless.

They seem to be missing the giant pink elephant in the room.
If I can create debt, which is a function of profit/loss and it can keep growing until one entity can own all the finite wealth, then where are the debts coming from?

And since debt can be limitless, well you see the problem.

It would seem that a world economy created on the foundation of fiat currency with no intrinsic value is the only world where limitless debt can exist.

Hey alright finally someone isnt a moran.

The isms are the misdirection for you to focus on. Thing thats funny is all these financial guys are in such hard core denial.

MONEY HAS NO VALUE. Its plainly obvious at this point. Who gives a fuck if theres 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 of debt because
DEBT ISNT EVEN REAL.

Fact is theyve held on to it for so long they dont wanna look like they were morans their entire life. Sorry guys, you were. Stupid your entire life. Time to wake up and join reality with the rest of us.

WHO IS HE???

WHY DOES "THE OBAMANATOR"...

WORSHIP THIS GUY???

LET SEE???

Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing, and has been compared to Thomas Paine as being "one of the great American leaders of the nonsocialist left."[4] He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals.

In the course of nearly four decades of political organizing, Alinsky received much criticism, but also gained praise from many public figures. His organizing skills were focused on improving the living conditions of poor communities across North America. In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to improving conditions of the African-American ghettos, beginning with Chicago's and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other "trouble spots".

His ideas were later adapted by some U.S. college students and other young organizers in the late 1960s and formed part of their strategies for organizing on campus and beyond.[5] Time magazine once wrote that "American democracy is being altered by Alinsky's ideas," and conservative author William F. Buckley said he was "very close to being an organizational genius."[4]

HISTORY...

Alinsky was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1909 to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, the only surviving son of Benjamin Alinsky's marriage to his second wife, Sarah Tannenbaum Alinsky.[6] Alinsky stated during an interview that his parents never became involved in the "new socialist movement." He added that they were "strict orthodox, their whole life revolved around work and synagogue ... I remember as a kid being told how important it was to study."[4]

Because of his strict Jewish upbringing, he was asked whether he ever encountered antisemitism while growing up in Chicago. He replied, "it was so pervasive you didn't really even think about it; you just accepted it as a fact of life." He considered himself to be a devout Jew until the age of 12, after which time he began to fear that his parents would force him to become a rabbi. "I went through some pretty rapid withdrawal symptoms and kicked the habit ... But I'll tell you one thing about religious identity," he added. "Whenever anyone asks me my religion, I always say—and always will say—Jewish."[4]

his parnets force him to become a rabbi....

mental or physical difficulty...

violation of sauls freewill....

turned him to the dark side...

can you be jewish and on the dark side????

yes!!!!

evidence???

every chapter in the old testement....

WHERE THE JEWS CONSTANTLY TURN FROM "THE TRUTH"...

WHICH IS DEATH!!!

EDUCATION...

He worked his way through the University of Chicago, where he majored in archaeology, a subject that fascinated him.[4] His plans to become a professional archaeologist were changed due to the ongoing economic Depression. He later stated, "Archaeologists were in about as much demand as horses and buggies. All the guys who funded the field trips were being scraped off Wall Street sidewalks."[4]

After attending two years of graduate school he dropped out to accept work for the state of Illinois as a criminologist. On a part-time basis, he also began working as an organizer with the Congress of Industrial Organizations (C.I.O.). After a few years, by 1939, he became less active in the labor movement and became more active in general community organizing, starting with the slums of Chicago. His early efforts to "turn scattered, voiceless discontent into a united protest aroused the admiration of Illinois governor Adlai Stevenson, who said Alinsky's aims 'most faithfully reflect our ideals of brotherhood, tolerance, charity and dignity of the individual.'"[4]

As a result of his efforts and success at helping slum communities, he spent the next 10 years repeating his organization work across the nation, "from Kansas City and Detroit to the barrios of Southern California." By 1950 he turned his attention to the African American ghettos of Chicago, where his actions would later earn him the hatred of Mayor Richard J. Daley, although Daley would later say that "Alinsky loves Chicago the same as I do."[4] He traveled to California at the request of the San Francisco Bay Area Presbyterian Churches to help organize the black ghetto in Oakland. Hearing of his plans, "the panic-stricken Oakland City Council promptly introduced a resolution banning him from the city."[4]

In the 1930s, Alinsky organized the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago (made infamous by Upton Sinclair's novel The Jungle for the horrific working conditions in the Union Stock Yards). He went on to found the Industrial Areas Foundation while organizing the Woodlawn neighborhood, which trained organizers and assisted in the founding of community organizations around the country. In Rules for Radicals (his final work, published in 1971 one year before his death), he addressed the 1960s generation of radicals, outlining his views on organizing for mass power. In the opening paragraph of the book Alinsky writes, "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."[7] Alinsky did not join political parties. When asked during an interview whether he ever considered becoming a Communist party member, he replied:

Not at any time. I've never joined any organization—not even the ones I've organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it's Christianity or Marxism. One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as 'that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you're right.' If you don't have that, if you think you've got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide.[4]

Nor did he have much respect for mainstream political leaders who tried to interfere with growing black–white unity during the difficult years of the Great Depression. In Alinsky's view, new voices and new values were being heard in the U.S., and "people began citing John Donne's 'No man is an island.'" He observed that the hardship affecting all classes of the population was causing them to start "banding together to improve their lives," and discovering how much in common they really had with their fellow man.[4] Alinsky once explained that his reasons for organizing in black communities included:

Negroes were being lynched regularly in the South as the first stirrings of black opposition began to be felt, and many of the white civil rights organizers and labor agitators who had started to work with them were tarred and feathered, castrated—or killed. Most Southern politicians were members of the Ku Klux Klan and had no compunction about boasting of it.[4]

Alinsky's tactics were often unorthodox. In Rules for Radicals Alinsky wrote, "[t]he job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a 'dangerous enemy.'" According to Alinsky, "the hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate [the organizer's] credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation."[8] After organizing FIGHT (an acronym for Freedom, Independence [subsequently Integration], God, Honor, Today) in Rochester, New York,[9] Alinsky once threatened to stage a "fart in" to disrupt the sensibilities of the city's establishment at a Rochester Philharmonic concert. FIGHT members were to consume large quantities of baked beans after which, according to author Nicholas von Hoffman, "FIGHT's increasingly gaseous music-loving members would hie themselves to the concert hall where they would sit expelling gaseous vapors with such noisy velocity as to compete with the woodwinds."[10] Satisfied with the reaction to his threat, Alinsky would later threaten a "piss in" at Chicago O'Hare Airport. Alinsky planned to arrange for large numbers of well dressed African Americans to occupy the urinals and toilets at O'Hare for as long as it took to bring the city to the bargaining table. According to Alinsky, once again the threat alone was sufficient to produce results.[10] Conceding that his tactics were "absurd," the community activist rejected the contention that they were frivolous, arguing "[w]hat oppressed person doesn't want, literally or figuratively, to shit on his oppressors? [At the Rochester Philharmonic] was the closest chance they'd have. Such tactics aren't just cute; they can be useful in driving your opponent up the wall. Very often the most ridiculous tactic can prove the most effective."

Alinsky described his plans in 1972 to begin to organize the white middle class across America, and the necessity of that project. He believed that what President Richard Nixon and Vice-President Spiro Agnew called "The Silent Majority" was living in frustration and despair, worried about their future, and ripe for a turn to radical social change, to become politically-active citizens. He feared the middle class could be driven to a right-wing viewpoint, "making them ripe for the plucking by some guy on horseback promising a return to the vanished verities of yesterday." His stated motive: "I love this goddamn country, and we're going to take it back."[4]

Alinsky's own words, from his 1946 "Reveille for Radicals",[11] capture his perspective, his motivation, and his style of engagement:

•A People's Organization is a conflict group, [and] this must be openly and fully recognized. Its sole reason in coming into being is to wage war against all evils which cause suffering and unhappiness. A People’s Organization is the banding together of large numbers of men and women to fight for those rights which insure a decent way of life. . . .

•A People's Organization is dedicated to an eternal war. It is a war against poverty, misery, delinquency, disease, injustice, hopelessness, despair, and unhappiness. They are basically the same issues for which nations have gone to war in almost every generation. . . . War is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play. . . .

•A People's Organization lives in a world of hard reality. It lives in the midst of smashing forces, dashing struggles, sweeping cross-currents, ripping passions, conflict, confusion, seeming chaos, the hot and the cold, the squalor and the drama, which people prosaically refer to as life and students describe as 'society'.

The documentary The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky and His Legacy,[12] states that "Alinsky championed new ways to organize the poor and powerless that created a backyard revolution in cities across America." Alinsky formed the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in 1940, and Edward T. Chambers became its Executive Director after Alinsky died. Since the IAF's formation, hundreds of professional community and labor organizers and thousands of community and labor leaders have attended its workshops. Fred Ross, who worked for Alinsky, was the principal mentor for Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Other organizations following in the tradition of the Congregation-based Community Organizing pioneered by IAF include PICO National Network, Gamaliel Foundation, and Direct Action and Research Training Center (DART).[13][14] Hillary Clinton's senior honors thesis on Saul Alinsky, written at Wellesley College, noted that Alinsky's personal efforts were a large part of his method.[15]

Several prominent American leaders have been influenced by Alinsky's teachings,[14] including Ed Chambers,[12] Tom Gaudette, Ernesto Cortes, Michael Gecan, Wade Rathke,[16] and Patrick Crowley.[17] Alinsky is often credited with laying the foundation for the grassroots political organizing that dominated the 1960s.[12] Jack Newfield writing in New York magazine included Alinsky among "the purest Avatars of the populist movement," along with Ralph Nader, Cesar Chavez, and Jesse Jackson.[18]

Biographer Sanford Horwitt has claimed that U.S. President Barack Obama was influenced by Alinsky and followed in his footsteps as a Chicago-based community organizer. Horwitt furthermore has asserted that Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign was influenced by Alinsky's teachings.[19]

Adam Brandon, a spokesman for the conservative non-profit organization FreedomWorks, which is one of several groups involved in organizing Tea Party protests, says the group gives Alinsky's Rules for Radicals to its top leadership members. A shortened guide called Rules for Patriots is distributed to its entire network. In a January 2012 story that appeared in The Wall Street Journal, citing the organization's tactic of sending activists to town-hall meetings, Brandon explained, "his tactics when it comes to grass-roots organizing are incredibly effective." Former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey also gives copies of Alinsky's book Rules for Radicals to Tea Party leaders.[20]

In 1969, he was awarded the Pacem in Terris Peace and Freedom Award.

Alinsky died of a sudden, massive heart attack in 1972, on a street corner in Carmel, California, at the age of 63. Two months previously, he discussed life after death in his interview with Playboy:[4]

ALINSKY: ... if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.

PLAYBOY: Why?

ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.

PLAYBOY: Why them?

ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

Stop patronizing peoples decision what to pay and what not.
Each ism is engaging in such.

The reason behind is if you do not patronize, the rich would pay nothing to the whole.

The solution with debt making is a workaround to that problem. You know it's reality.

Socialism, communism, capitalism or any other form of society based on MONEY, is doomed to fail.

Money represent the SOURCE of : greed, crime, coruption, poverty.

No matter WHAT TYPE OF SOCIETY we are in now (because sure as hell is NOT capitalism) or we WILL BE IN, as long as is based on money (in ANY FORM) will undoubtely fail.

As I see it now, not only the elites but like 95% of the poors and what is left from middle class, cannot grasp the concept of a society without money.

However, they will have to understand it AND embrace it, otherwise we ar fucked hard.
Quoting: recollector
