Occupy Wall Street Presents Some Demands

There is now a list of demands compiled by the Occupy Wall Street folks on their official website. There is also now a disclaimer at the top of the list by the administrator which states that this is only one list of demands not officially sanctioned by the movement. That in itself is a bit odd. If it is not "official" then why is it even there? Oh yes, the disclaimer states that "irresponsible" media outlets like Fox News (of course!) are promoting it as a real story.

Besides the standard demands, such as free health care for everyone and the abolition of private insurance companies, there are a few interesting ones.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

The final conclusion of the author is that all the demands, when met, will create so many jobs that open borders will be a necessity. People from everywhere will be needed to fill the jobs, apparently.

The infiltration of unions has raised up and one of the demands deals with membership availability for all workers.

The irony is rich within this movement. Not only do those who protest against evil corporate America use products which sprang forth from corporate investment, they depend on these inventions just like everyone else does.

Becca, a sweet “organic gardener” from Brooklyn, was there to “end a capitalist system that treats people like cattle” and live in an America where everyone has “equal wealth.” She wanted a country with a “high tax,” a la “Sweden and Finland,” to ensure “personal well-being.” (Those Scandinavian examples both have a much lower corporate tax rate—26 percent and 26.3 percent, respectively— than the U.S.’s 35 percent rate, but let’s not get hung up on details.) Then the irony gods flexed their muscles as a friend interrupted Becca; she handed him her Visa card to order something over the phone. The revolution will not be televised, but it will be magnetized.

And yes, they are tweeting the revolution. Facebook pages are sprouting up, too.
