1 Marine vs. 30 cops (Marine Wins) - Occupy Times Square retardation

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmEHc...layer_embedded

The title of this video is interesting. They must have a funny definition of "win." Secondly, I know that the Marines are a large group of people from all kinds of different backgrounds, but this guy certainly doesn't strike me as legit. But then again, maybe they've let their standards drop. I laughed at the line to a bunch of NYPD officers "Nobody's trying to hurt you!", "Nobody has guns!", and "There are no bullets flying out here!" Ok, we'll just go get our weapons after people start attacking us. Cause that makes sense right? Shouldn't a "soldier" get the concept?

Many have commented on the video, calling this guy a hero. Are people really that stupid? I mean really, is this what this country's come to? Where the vast majority of protestors don't even know what they're protesting for? Other than the fact that they want more than what they can afford and are unwilling to either make do or work harder to get what they want, and would rather find a scapegoat to blame rather than take some personal responsibility? I know this is probably a grossly over-beat hasta topic, I just thought that this video was particularly disturbing. I hope this "occupy" horsesh*t dies out soon and we can get a new president and new leadership who won't continue wrecking our economy. Well, any further than it already is, that is.

9, 9, 9!

Re: 1 Marine vs. 30 cops (Marine Wins) - Occupy Times Square retardation

As a moderator I moved this thread to political discussion zone.

This video is a result of the OWS movement currently occurring globally & will elicit political opinions as well as opinions in support of or in disagreement with the content of the video.

An OWS thread exists in Political Discussion Zone and I am not technically saavy enough to incorporate this one post thread as a sub-section of that thread.

Herman Cain's Economic Guiding Principals

1 (of 3) Production drives the economy, not spending. Production is the engine, consumption is the caboose.

http://www.hermancain.com/999plan



Cain of all people should know that that is completely wrong.

DEMAND is the engine that drives any economy. You can invest and produce and invest and produce all day long, but without demand there is no economic activity.


Further, Cain wants to continue to pit wage earners against capital investors... and claim we need more investment to spur the economy. We don't. As of last March, we had 1.9 TRILLION dollars sitting idle on corporate balance sheets. We need DEMAND. We have plenty of cash ready to meet that demand if it ever materializes.

Cain has it backward in my opinion.

I think he's referring to the government's role in the economy. In which case he's right, the government needs to facilitate production. The demand will always be there (in many industries, that is).

I doubt someone who created a chain as successful as Godfather's doesn't understand that you can't just produce produce produce in spite of there being no demand

It's not there now. That's why companies sales are falling and they are laying off people.

Right now the government doesn't need to facilitate production, there is a ton of cash ready to be employed. There's 2.5 trillion in cash ready to be put to work right now between private equity investors and American public companies.

When the demand shows up, that capital is ready to work. If the government has to get involved, it should be trying to facilitate demand, not production (IMO).

You'd think?

Yea in a small number of commodity industries. Not necessities. They may downsize, but as long as there's a US, they'll always be there.

He actually was placed in charge of it by Pillsbury after he successfully turned Burger King around. After he turned Godfather pizza around, he got some investor's together and bought the chain form Pillsbury. But close enough...

I don't think you can really separate the factors out. If there's no demand, the company won't produce. But, if the company isn't producing, they're not employing people, and those people then have no money to turn around and spend to create demand. I think that companies should be looking to raise wages for their workers. Looking through the slide show posted by bigalpha in the other OWS thread, they have money. Profits have doubled since the 80's or so, CEO pay has gone from about 50x worker pay in the 60's to 350x today, yet worker pay has only increased by 4%, adjusting for inflation. Cut the CEO's pay (right, what CEO would do that?), and use some of the profits to raise worker pay. The people would then have money to spend on your products, other company's products, etc. The gov't would make more taxes off the increased salaries.

Henry Ford had the right idea: when he opened his factories, he checked the going rate and paid his workers double what anyone else was. Happy workers are productive, loyal, and dedicated.

If the guy did serve, he seems like he's got PTSD. What did the cops do to make him think they were hurting anyone? Was it simply because they were wearing protective gear?

Re: 1 Marine vs. 30 cops (Marine Wins) - Occupy Times Square retardation

It's also against regulation to have a beard, unless maybe he had a no-shave chit. He was referred to as a vet, so if he was in, he's not active anymore. Wearing the cammies in public isn't an issue for someone who is no longer serving. Not to mention he was wearing the blouse open, another dead giveaway that he's not concerned about regulation because he either is no longer in or was never in. I know I've worn my cammie blouse or trousers (never together though) since getting out. But then I've only worn my older "analog" stuff, not the current digi.

I didn't get a good look at his ribbons, so I can't say anything there.

This...... and the fact that the shirt is way too small for him. Dunno what the military regs are for rank emblems/markings, but he identified himself as holding the rank of Sgt. Nothing on his shirt shows this either.
