2013 Thanksgiving Occupy WalMart Television Reporting compromised over strange technicality.

I used to think that if a protest or strike received "sympathy" protesting support, that that would be viewed in a favorable light by the media. In the case of the 2013 Occupy Thanksgiving WalMart protest, outside support would be reported in a negative light.

I was watching KNBC Los Angeles news report about the 2013 Walmart Thanksgiving protest when suddenly the reporter brought up the issue that many of the protestors were the equivalent of "moles". The reporter further revealed that perhaps only 20% of the protestors were actually WalMart employees.

One protestor brought up the point that WalMart employees in fear of losing their jobs did not protest. How is one to count those invisible protestors I wondered to myself?

So there you have it. If only Walmart employees show up to a Walmart Thanksgiving day protest, the protest will downplayed as just a few malcontents trying to get attention. If a lot of Walmart employees protest, the loss of face and potential stock market value could cause the company to fire many of the protesting workers.

If however there is a solid blend of core WalMart employee protestors backed by many more probably union based protestors, that too is called into question by the reporter.

Ouch, it's a no win situation, I sure wish the reporter had at least pointed out that nugget of truth. I am pretty sure the video I saw was on KNBC Los Angeles, but I cannot find it on google, how strange is that? Perhaps because the report was done on location in front of a Wal Mart it was not actually saved?

Perplexed Politicians don't understand why majority of public does not want war with Syria.

The same out of touch politicians who can't be bothered to learn about the lack of debt suspension rights for consumers are shocked that the majority of the U.S. public does not want a war with Syria over the alleged Syrian government chemical bombing of their own populace.

I would suggest that the U.S government's inability to catch up with social media rules is the underlying reason. The U.S. still demands complete compliance and secrecy with all it's own secret actions, even if those actions are questionable or illegal, but wants sympathy and support when other governments do wrong.

The U.S. condemns Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden for leaking secrets of potential wrong doing but wants full support when another country does wrong against its own peoples.  

When does the U.S. begin to be more transparent?

When the day of more meaningful transparency occurs, than that is probably the day when more people would want the U.S. involved in Syria.

I personally would also like to see drones used to spy and collect data in potential hotspots, and that information shared with the public on an ongoing basis until it becomes rather obvious the present Syrian regime needs to be replaced.  

We have drones to bomb places but not to spot sarin gas being used? I would suggest our drone priorities are misplaced.

Don't Fight the Elite, Fight the Inane Rules the Elite Create to Siphon Wealth from Main Street.

One aspect I've never liked about Occupy Wall Street is the apparent rabid hate for the Wall Street Elite at the greater expense of truly helping main street. I fear that a very small inner circle group of OWS has a very intense vendetta against the Wall Street Elite, perhaps because they never made it into the Wall Street inner circle themselves. Ouch!

It is almost of an conspiratorial level that some would prioritize punishing the wall street elite ahead of helping main street. I suggest it is better to fight the Inane rules that Wall Street, the big banks, and our own government create rather than bitterly hate these entities and blame them directly.

Here are three mega impactful anti consumer practices being inflicted on consumers on a daily basis that if rescinded would help prevent the ongoing erosion of middle class wealth and their happiness as well.

1. 2% monthly minimum credit card payments... are destructive to a person's economic well being because they allow a debtor to attain levels of debt over time that are just too high to ever pay off. Additionally, consumers have been over charged by a factor of 1000% to 2000% for credit card debt suspension insurance that would PREVENT many credit card defaults from ever occurring.

2.  Judges make no distinction in court between a strategic credit card default and an involuntary credit card default. What is even more outrageous is that some involuntary credit card defaulters could have avoided their involuntary credit card defaults if Credit Card Debt Suspension Insurance had been fairly priced. In essence, judges routinely ignore the fraud of credit card debt suspension insurance premiums that are 1,000% to 2,000% too high, but allow the resulting consumer credit card default to proceed.

3. Over priced credit card debt suspension insurance. As mentioned above, using our courts to legally punish consumers who rightfully avoided debt suspension insurance because it was DRAMATICALLY overpriced by 1,000% to 2,000% but subsequently defaulted on their credit card debt is patently unfair.

4. Reverse Mortgage scams. Forcing elderly homeowners to take everyone's name off of the deed but one, while also charging that person for mortgage insurance based on the full value of the home is a rip off, plain and simple. It appears the government, in setting up reverse mortgage programs, never considered the option of a homeowner agreeing to a very modest monthly draw that even after 10 years time would not jeopardize the value of the home versus the equity taken out. What a horrible way to treat our elderly, many of whom have practiced frugality their entire lives.

These are four anti consumer issues, that if fixed, would basically rebalance the distribution of wealth between those on main street who have earned it versus those on wall street who want their unearned cut.

I would suggest that if Occupy Wall Street wants to truly have a positive impact on our society, focus more attention on first FIXING the bad rules rather than punishing the schmucks who created the bad rules.

I have mentioned before my concept of credit card reparations for consumers. Reduce everyone's credit card debt by 65% and simultaneously raise their monthly minimum payments requirement from 2% to 5%. This one action alone would do more to fix the economy than virtually any idea I have heard proffered by our politicians and so called money experts.

Don't be Defeatist, it's so Middle Class. -Maggie Smith on Downtown Abbey, (as seen on Sixty Minutes).

"Don't be defeatist, it's so Middle Class". DownTown Abbey.  That's sooooooooo true.  

The quote is right around the 9 minute mark, and well worth memoralizing.

The way I spot a defeatist is whenever I propose an idea for making things better, the response I get is..."They (meaning the elitists), would never allow that".

Why the heck do I care or even want to know why "they" would not approve when that same energy to tell me that could be used to either support the idea or make the idea better.
