Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Occupy Wall Street - Beyond Commies

As a student of history, I recognize by now when the Powers That Be are trying to play me. You see, I don't get in a tizzy anymore with your garden variety liberals, I've moved on to bigger fish to fry. I recognize that there are anti-American forces at work in our country, which everyone would agree. I also recognize that those forces need a lot of money in order to accomplish their goals.

Conservatives are correct in thinking that there are forces at work trying to socialize our country. Many automatically lash out at easily identifiable, publicly schooled statists morons repeating what their state-issued textbooks told them about Keynesian economics and their schooled concept of "fairness". Fairness is always handed down from a higher authority. When they were children, it was the "teacher", and as adults, it is the "state".

There has been a gigantic shift in wealth in this country in the last forty years, no one can dispute that. It doesn't make me a communist to point out that:

In June 2009, the Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Report estimated the number of the world's wealthiest people declined by 15 percent, the steepest decline in the report's 13-year history. The number of millionaires in the U.S. fell by 19 percent to 2.5 million people.

Analysts tell us the economy is being restructured, but how will the disparities in wealth between the rich and the poor play out?

"The source of wealth has changed over the past 30 years; corporations have become the engine of inequality in the U.S.," says Sam Pizzigati, associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington D.C. "In the past, wealth came from ownership: Today it comes increasingly from income."

The highest incomes come from executive pay at top corporations. In 2007, the ratio of CEO pay to the average paycheck was 344 to one, lower than the record 525 to one ratio set in 2001, but substantial. This year's ratio is estimated to decrease to 317 to one. In the 60s, 70s and 80s, the average ratio fluctuated between 30 and 40 to one.

Over 40 percent of GNP comes from Fortune 500 companies. According to the World Institute for Development Economics Research, the 500 largest conglomerates in the U.S. "control over two-thirds of the business resources, employ two-thirds of the industrial workers, account for 60 percent of the sales, and collect over 70 percent of the profits."

Corporations systematically created a wealth gap over the last 30 years. In 1955, IRS records indicated the 400 richest people in the country were worth an average $12.6 million, adjusted for inflation. In 2006, the 400 richest increased their average to $263 million, representing an epochal shift of wealth upward in the U.S.

Let me just leave you with this truth. Not everyone who is a billionaire and an American citizen is loyal to the United States or its Constitution. I'm sure George Soros pops into your mind first. But I want you to think about the pyramid shape of a communist system for a minute. Who is on top? And if someone starts out on top of the pyramid, what motivation do they have for needing a middle class? Do they "need" capitalism now that they've "got theirs?" I think these are valid questions that right and left Americans need to think about.

OH, and END THE FED!!!
And be sure to check out my ongoing expose of Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution where you will find Wall Street bankers handing communists money hand over fist.


  1. Thanks so much, Fuzzy! I'm giving it my all to figure this stuff out.

  2. I think that redistribution is all about eliminating the middle income earners. Basically these powerful people want the old feudal standard of the have and those who do not. Socialism just happens to be the most effective tool in bringing this about.

  3. So true, Trestin. I wish more people would start focusing on who stands the gain from the socialism all the conservatives are talking about. On one hand they talk about how horrible socialism is, and on the other they defend these so called scions of the free market on Wall Street. When in fact, much of Wall Street is nothing more than a bunch of cartel - goons financing the redistribution of wealth in America.
