Hristo Voynov, The Sage of Zuccotti Park

You can’t make this stuff, up.  Seriously.

OWS is down there at Wall & Broad demanding, through violence and intimidation, that the government forcibly confiscate the earnings the “rich” have worked for, right?

And while you might have a self-righteous coffee-house row over whether or not the Wall Street guys’ making money with money is “moral,”or “legitimate,” the rich, as a group, didn’t get rich by pulling an Ocean’s 11. They – even the evil Wall Street types – even OWS would concede (it’s inarguable fact) – had to study wicked complex economics & accounting at wicked hard schools to get that smart to be entrusted with that much control over that much money, so, by definition, really did work for what they have, whether or not they – morally – “deserve” it.  The whole thing just feels icky, and it’s just not “fair,” right? Okay…

Meet The Sage of Zuccotti Park, poor, disillusioned Hristo Voynov:

From Thursday’s New York Times article, “After Day of Quiet, More ‘Occupy’ Protests Planned”:

“‘Everything we had here, everything we worked for is gone,’ said Hristo Voynov, 18…”

Poor Hristo. It’s just not right that the government should confiscate what you have worked to earn. The least they could do, having forcibly confiscated what you have earned through your hard work, is to redistribute it to someone oppressed, right?

Hey, Hristo… You were only in Zuccotti Park for 2 months.

Try 20, 30, 40, or 50 years of work then have the government take half.  And that’s while you are alive.  

And while you are alive, busting your ass, you get to go home after a long day and you get to watch a putz like former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) go on t.v. – and I saw this live and remember it vividly – say that you shouldn’t get to leave a penny of it to your children.

That’s right.  100% of what you “worked for” – not just for 2 months in Zuccotti Park – but over a lifetime, should be confiscated by the government upon your death.

So, after spending a lifetime busting your ass, having half of it taken from you along the way, these a**holes really, truly, genuinely, shamelessly, out loud, on television, believe & say in English words we can all understand: 

“You have no right to determine the disposition of your life’s work.”

Why? I swear to you this is what Weiner said.  You can look it up. Why don’t you have the right to determine the dispositon of your life’s work? Why should the government get 100% of it after all that?

“Your’e dead.”

“You have no rights.”

I swear to God I saw him say it.   

So stuff your infantile commie bullcrap about the 1%.  Man up.  Get a job.  Work hard.  Build something.  Offer other men jobs. Take care of your wife & pay your childrens’ tuiton and shut the f*ck up about the 1%.

Whah?  What’s that?  “They” have too much?

Okay.

What’s “enough?”

Who gets to decide?

You see the problem, don’t you Hristo?

Quite apart from the fact that that kind of thinking is, down its cellular level, fundamentally anti-thetical to the optimistic, “work hard and make it big” American Dream spirit that built this country.  Why bust your ass if there’s a ceiling?  Huh?  Why risk everything you own to start a business if there’s a ceiling?  Why not just work just enough to save just enough then just die?

It’s not selfishness, you communist child, that, as a rule, motivates America’s rich, because what you’ve so cynically left out of your assessment of them is that they’re also America’s dreamers… Got it?  They have a goal.  They’ve found something they love to do that they are really really good at it so they will bust their ass to be the best at it.

For the best among them, it’s not even work.  For them, it falls into the category of “Do what you love, and you will never work a day in your life – and the money will follow.”

That’s the reward.  The money is secondary. A damneclose, reallyclose, superclose, second, I grant you, but second. They understood how it works in America – which brings me back to my original point – Be the best, and you get rich.

It’s the America Dream – our Real Social Contract, you moron.

But back to the rich, because you really, really, really don’t get this, Hristo:  They may have even spent 6, or 8, or 10 years studying it (the thing they love & and good at) perhaps for big tuition, to learn the finer points of it.  Reading, interning, absorbing everything they could possibly learn about their chosen field for 20 hours a day, for 6, or 8, or 10 years.  Whether it’s actuarial tables, international currency, or kidney disease.

I can’t walk into a Wall Street brokerage and profitably run a 401k that half of all Americans put their money in any more than I could do an appendectomy.  These people should be paid for their hard-hewned talents, you moron.

Can any one of your OWS buddies do those things?  No.  Life isn’t fair.  (Didn’t your mother ever tell you that?)

It never will be.  No matter who’s President.  

Some people will never earn more than $10 bucks an hour.  That’s the way it is.

Sucks to be you.

Or get to work and earn it.

Oh… and you didn’t “work” for anything in Zuccotti Park.  Zuccotti Park’s deed doesn’t have your name on it.

Go figure out what you can do for work everyday that you have some affection and talent for then see where it takes you.  Then you can buy your own Zuccotti Park and let people like you crap all over it.

Okay?

 

Violent Tea Party Swarms

If I had a nickel for every one of their 3,500+ arrests…

Whah?  That’s an OWS poster?  Looking like some perverted mash-up of Tiananmen Square & Nazi Germany/Soviet communist propaganda?

Tea Party hasn’t had a single arrest in 2 years but Occupy Wall Street has 3,500 in 2 months?

Tea Party applies for & pays for the proper permits, says their peace, cleans up after themselves, then goes home?  Often leaving places cleaner than they found them and nearly always doing the clean up, from the first, without being told to do it from the stage?

OWS as recently as yesterday urinated in the lobby of a Bank of America branch they “occupied” in San Francisco? OWS has been photographed pooping on a police car? Trampling on an American flag? Raping? Robbing? Even murdering?

Huh.

But MSNBC spent 18 months saying Tea Party was viole…

Whah?

They’re propaganda whores for the White House?  Who’s lovin’ this?  Van Jones never really left the Administration?  He’s in their pitchin’ and organizing with Soros money paying all the printing costs, etc. for this whole thing?  It’s “organized chaos” from the top down for the bottom to rise up?

They’re frankly a little aggravated we didn’t do it for ’em?  Which is what they were trying so hard to do all these months?  Make us be the violent mob, but when we wouldn’t they put Van Jones to work?

Who knew?

Wall Street's "Air-Mail" to OWS

Here is most of a note someone way up in a skyscraper literally dropped, by the dozens, on the filthy OWS crowd and it’s very, very good eatin’! Enjoy! And big, big props to the essential daily read, American Thinker, for posting it!

We are Wall Street.  It’s our job to make money.  Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it’s doesn’t matter.  We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable.

I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years.  Just like gambling, its (sic) not a problem until you lose.  I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well, now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat.  God knows there has to be one for everything.  Well, here we are.

Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves.  What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore?  Guess what:  We’re going to take yours.

We get up at 5am & work till 10pm or later.  We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position.  We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break.  We don’t demand a union.  We don’t retire at 50 with a pension.  We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled.  We were too busy working to notice.  Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing ladscapint?  We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America.  Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half.  I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.

So now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right?  Wrong!  Guess what:  we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore.   No more free rides on our backs.  We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways.  Our money was your money.  You spent it.  When our money dries up, so does yours.

Napkin Math

In thinking about the anti-capitalism ethos afoot:

We borrow 42 cents of every dollar we spend, right? Even the Left would stipulate this as FACT.

The top 1% pay in 38% of ALL the revenue the federal government takes in, right?  Even the Left would stipulate this as FACT.

What if the 1% stopped paying? Hmm?

I would argue that capitalism is the only thing keeping us afloat.

If the 1% went on strike, withdrew their capital, took their balls and went to some foreign home you would not only have to borrow 42 cents of every dollar, you would have to borrow ANOTHER 38 cents.

Let’s see… 42 + 38 = 80.

EIGHTY PERCENT of this economy runs on the WEALTH CAPITALISM CREATES AND THE CREDIT THEIR WEALTH ENSURES.

Bonus question: How much do you have to earn to be in the lucky 1%?

Bonus answer: A little over $300,000.  Yes – Three hundred thousand dollars a year.  Forget individual families for a second and consider this:  70% of the businesses in America are small business and the overwhelming majority of them file as individual earners.  The frickin’ corner store grosses twice that, fercryingoutloud.  Bam-Bam thinks they’re fat cats.

Bonus BONUS factoid: (Now, back to the ‘fat-cat’ family we put aside a moment ago)  Obama strokes a check every year for $80k in tuition to Sidwell Friends for his two kids. (His money.  He earned it.  Got no problems with that, okay?)  But how come it’s okay for him to not have to go begging to the federal frickin’ government for a school loan to put his kids through school, but if someone ‘who worked hard and played by the rules’ wants to do it for his kids, he’s a selfish pr*ck?

Conclusion?

STUFF YOUR SOCIALISM.

Obama & Perry Campaigns' Internal Polling

UPDATE III: 5:05pm Eastern:  Herman Cain spent the 4pm-5pm hour with Sean Hannity on the radio.  The one question I really wanted asked was ‘Have you ever been unfaithful to your wife?’. Hannity didn’t ask it. Ok… but you know what?  I’m ‘hiring’ Herman based on his character and trustworthiness.  I’m one of those knuckle-draggers who believes that if you lie to your wife you’ll lie to your country.  Call me quaint but I believe it.  Herman gave a good interview, and I’m comforted by it, and my support remains solid… but I’d really like an answer to that question.

UPDATE II 2:22pm Eastern:  Evidently Gloria Berger-Meister-Meister-Burger over at CNN has MORE vicious slander about someone who alleges no touching, no sex, no skin, nothing even remotely substantial, crashing on Herman’s couch once… Uh-huh.  I guess because she’s female and white this is significant?  

UPDATE, THU 9:25am Eastern: I’ve been watching/listening/reading media for three hours since I wrote this around dawn this morning, and not seen ANYONE with analysis like this on the big stage ANYWHERE defending Herman Cain with the SPECIFICS I’VE OUTLINED BELOW.  If you agree, PLEASE FORWARD THIS BLOG POST TO A FRIEND AND EXHORT THEM TO FORWARD IT TO THEIR FRIENDS!  The link you can cut and paste to this specific post is:

http://anniefields.com/blog/?p=2399

As I write this very early Thursday morning, we still have no specifics, no women, no pictures, nothing to back up these claims of ‘harassment’ on Herman Cain.

As I’ve written previously:  To this day, I remember Paula Jones’ bad perm.  We all still live in the fresh hell of Anthony Weiner’s weiner picture still in our minds’ eye  We remember the testimony that Bubba dropped trou and said ‘Wanna kiss it’?

In short, we had faces, names, quotes and witnesses who backed them up.  We have witnesses now who say they saw something in a restaurant and a talk-radio station hallway but won’t give specifics.  Unlike the original complainants, these ‘witnesses’ are not bound by any legal covenant.  Note, too, the venues we are talking about:  a restaurant and a radio station hallway are public places; not a hotel room or other private place… These people, Cain’s accusers & so-called witnesses are just throwing out fire-bombs of innuendo.  And speaking of throwing firebombs of innuendo…

…We have the reporters in the initial Politico story not giving details about exactly what happened, in, as they themselves have framed it, some gentlemanly effort to protect the woman…  Content, evidently with the result, which is to slander the reputation of the #1 GOP Presidential candidate, which is the only possible result from publishing with such a thin story if you have zero publishing standards but 110% agenda.  (Parenthetically,didn’t Politico get some Soros money a few months back? I know Media Matters did.  Duh.  But didn’t Politico?)

Cain has accused Perry of doing this, based on the reasonable conclusion that since someone with knowledge of the 1990’s settlement went to work for him 2 weeks ago. 10 days ago the story bubbled then hit the front page Sunday night.

This morning I awake to see that Drudge has some stories that Rahm Emmanuel may have had a hand in this.

Okay… I’m not suggesting that this was co-ordinated between the two, but if you can’t follow the money the second best thing is benefit.  Who does this benefit?

For GOP it would be Perry, of course, because it must be killing them, just fricking vexing to them that their guy, who started with so much heat, can’t get out of the cool basement of single digits.  

For Democrats the natural beneficiary to taking Cain down a peg or two would be Obama, of course, who has been campaigning all along like Romney is going to be their opponent.  

CONSIDER:  They’ve spent campaign money already putting out ads & talking points as though Romney is their guy.  Ferkryssakes!  What do you think this whole OWS thing is?  It’s an effort to foment civil unrest, next summer, during the conventions, after having spent the winter painting Romney as a Wall Street guy – their named enemy.

I’d bet my HOUSE it’s not just the polls we see on television & the internet that have Cain #1.  I’d bet these campaigns have internal polling – always far more accurate & detailed – that shows Herman Cain’s support far, far, far, far, far stronger than anyone’s previously suspected and each campaign looked at it like good campaigns do and said, ‘Where’s his soft-underbelly?  What’s the biggest balloon on these numbers we can prick to deflate this Cain train and stop it’?

LIKABILITY.

Cain’s support rests largely on a huge amount of good-will.  Ephemeral good will. 

Make him a philanderer and…

Look – Obama can’t – CAN’T – face a strong black man in the General.  It’ll look like the 98-pound weakling punk-ass kid, clutching his trust-fund paid Harvard degree getting a finger-wagging scolding from his grandfather telling him to quit his nancy-boy whining, man-up, and get the frickin’ job done.

He’ll lose, and he knows it.

Therefore, based on all the foregoing, I, for one, believe the internal polls told them the Cain train was coming and Rahm was set loose – and Perry planted the story.

Sigh… This is going to be a long Primary.
