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.
