Where have I see this kind of stupid shit before?

Looks like the unwashed hippies now picketing Wall Street have a list of demands they want met. Here is the text of their demands, because this stuff is just to sweet:

Posted 8 days ago by LloydJHart (Vineyard Haven, MA)

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

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.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

This is straight up shit from the communist playbook! We saw how well it has worked out for the people earning the “living wages”, getting the “free healthcare” and “free education” in these countries. And they want to make that wage obligatory even when all you do is stay home and play playstation/Xbox! North Korea is a paradise! And who doesn’t want debt forgiveness? Hopefully after they rack up a few million dollars in goodies they then get to keep too. Especially when it’s illegal to track if people are paying their bills or not. And unionize everything! Society won’t grind to a halt at all when these unions all start fighting over the boney carcass, because the state police will keep order like they do in that North Korean paradise.

Couple all that commie nonsense with such brilliant ideas as ending the use of fossil fuels, while the only viable replacement is nuclear, which I suspect would illicit a whole list of new demands from these morons, a trillion dollars of wasted money – why not since we already flushed more than that away so far these past 3 years – on “restoring the ecology” (WTF is that?) and planting forests, open borders, and a voting system I recall Stalin once pointed out didn’t much care about the votes but who counted them, and things are going to be awesome! Not my words. Here is the quote from that page:

These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

Maybe you need a 14th demand: free hallucinogenic drugs for those hippies! Fuck, some people are so stupid it makes you wonder if the universe wouldn’t be better off if a big rock fell from the sky and wiped everything out. Think of all the jobs fixing the aftermath of that event would create! Envy of what others have sucks.

    The Wall Street thing is a little amorphous and I hardly think a message board post reflects their agenda. The most common demand I’ve seen is a a call for financial transaction tax, overturning citizens united and taxing capital gains and income as ordinary income. Bad enough, but hardly the agenda you show above.

    We were just discussing how this would work out – my mortgage would vanish, along with any other debts, and I’ll receive a “living wage” for doing nothing. Since now all I have to do is pay for utilities, groceries and (maybe) property taxes out of my new paycheck for doing nothing, I can get on with sleeping in and playing video games full time.

    After all, it’s not as if I need to work for a living any longer…..

    What exactly are you accusing Alex of Hal?

    In the last 15 days the protesters have, themselves, articulated pretty much everything in this post.

    This very organized, strategically placed, and extremely well funded kabuki will continue, baring a blizzard, for a very long time. It will become a showplace of sorts
    It’s almost like what Cloward and Piven wrote and taught about. Nah, prolly not…

    It will be used expertly and you will be used continuously… but of course you have your Australia back-up plan that you spoke of during the immigration debates right?

    I think they also want ipads for everyone and to power our civilization on unicorn tears. This is really a hilarious list of things. Guaranteed income regardless of employment is my favorite. This is something Ehrenreich has talked about for a while. never happen. Even liberals respond to that with, “huh?”

    This is an agenda that could only come from an ivory tower.

    I’m not accusing Alex of anything. This just reminds me of how the press responds to the Tea Party, which is also somewhat amorphous. They’ll find the most extreme guy out there and say he represents the entire thing.

    I’m cooking up a post on this, the short version of which is that I don’t think they really have an agenda. I’ve dealt with these people before on college campi. Protesting against “the man” is their thing and pretty much their only thing. A coherent agenda is not on their menu. You don’t think Van Jones, with his income, really wants taxes raised, do you?

    I’m not accusing Alex of anything. This just reminds me of how the press responds to the Tea Party,

    Last I recall the press responded to the Tea Party by not just repeating the lies that the Tea Partiers had called a black congressman the “N-word”, but when finally cornered to provide facts to back that up, they doubled down. So are you accusing me of lying or doubling down when I was caught in the lie? Cause all I did is link to a site one of the “protestors” posted his group’s demands on, and the equivocation seems like a poor attempt to defend the indefensible.

    I’m cooking up a post on this, the short version of which is that I don’t think they really have an agenda.

    Oh they have an agenda all right, The problem is that most of them simply know better than to say what they want – like this fool did – because people would immediately turn them off and hem and haw, coming across like anarchists or people without a clue. But have no doubt that this type wants one thing: everything other people have without having to work for it.

    I’ve dealt with these people before on college campi.

    Me too. They are closet communists, anarchist, both, or plain insane, and what they want is exactly what this guy posted: everything handed to them at other people’s expense.

    Protesting against “the man” is their thing and pretty much their only thing.

    They don’t protest the man, they just protest the man that isn’t a fellow communist like them. The man these days is Obama. I don’t see these types protest him other than to say he didn’t go far enough to the left.

    A coherent agenda is not on their menu.

    Since when has any of this collectivist shit been about a coherent agenda, short of the mass murdering of those they didn’t like, imprisonment of the population, and general misery for those not part of the small elite aristocracy in charge?

    You don’t think Van Jones, with his income, really wants taxes raised, do you?

    If he doesn’t feel obligated to pay it – because he puts breaks in for HIS income or because like Geithner and some other democrats he simply conveniently forgets to – then why would he care? Look at fucking Moore. The bastard has become ultra rich using capitalism to feed the morons their shit sandwich. There he was demanding higher taxes. He of course, like Buffet, have a plan that will keep them from paying that much or making a lot more from it.
