what did 9/11 change in america?


I mean chiefly just the climate. Post 9/11 America is a very paranoid, polarized place. A lot of American culture of the post WWII-9/11 era was based around the idea that the problems of the world were the problems of the world but America transcended all of that with its money and nuclear weapons. But NOW, shit's crazy, and everything is based around this (perceived) vulnerability that the Ayrabs exposed and how to best defend against the forces of the world that are so obviously out to get us.

Not... that that really has much to do with the topic, but whatever

the only path to true revolution is violence


duh. That's the point I'm making. Shit isn't going to happen until n!iggas are invested enough in the cause to actually be willing to sacrifice for it, and only time will tell if it comes to that with this. But it probably won't, n!iggas was lookin shook just from the police yolkin em up.

9/11 was just a protest (and with its 5000 deaths the strongest i experienced) from the islamic part of the world that there are other things than the commercial bullshit the us is living for... and all america does is "stick stronger together against terrorism" and not trying to understand the lack of balance in the world BECAUSE of this capitalistic bullshit

just sayin since you were talking about forms to protest

seems to me like in the end:
the most powerful people in your country aren't gonna listen to a bunch of pissed off kids.

it's just hopeless. no point in even trying.

i agree with op. here goes my rant. i'm ready for your hate. also ready for your didn't read memes.

1. most good jobs in this country (i'm talking jobs with benefits and good salaries and what not) are provided by corporations. why are you protesting companies that are still creating jobs in this poor economic climate?

2. these fuckin people are sitting there using apple products - ignorantly supporting a corporation creating over-priced electronic goods because they have a monopoly on pretty looking tech... also organizing via facebook and therefore supporting zuckerberg who is one of the 1% they're protesting against. stupid.

3. protesters have no clear message for what they're protesting. i've heard people at the protest speak on camera and read their interviews and read their website. There is no unifying sentiment. Most protesters seem to not understand anything about the economics at all.

3. i don't like cops but i'd rather have nyc cops thats willing to pepper spray a dirty hippie and shoot a terrorist when it comes down it than cops that are ineffective when there is a serious problem in our city.
September 27, 2011 @ 18:24:11
lol agreed. but on the real. i work there everyday and i ain't see anything serious happen. its just the media hyping things up.

1. Corporations are making record profits, this is not translating into job creation.

Not the corporations fault in most cases, automation, shipping jobs overseas is a lot cheaper and efficient.

2. i doubt fliers and pamphlets would get this many people organized

3. they don't know exactly what they want, but we know that they are mad as fuck.

4. i don't think there is one recorded incident of an NY cop, or probably any city cop shooting a terrorist or stopping a terrorist plot. It is easy to get carried away and start beating and pepper spraying people when shit gets out of hand, but a lot of cops genuinely enjoy it.

These protesters aint accomplishing shit.

Don't badmind me.

who cares if there isnt one unifying purpose, sentiment or agenda. the first thing you've got to do is get mad. the rest will follow.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_qgVn-Op7Q

and you can vouch for corporations all you want, but if the banks, insurance companies, ratings agencies, mortgage companies, the government, etc, etc operated with any amount of decency and integrity we wouldnt even be in this recession/depression and we wouldnt be arguing about this.
all they care about is profit margins and people are getting fucking mad about it.

* Why do we have to pay the bailout money with our taxes for their mistake of bankrupting? This doesn't sound like a free market to me. Especially when it was the Wall Street bankers who are robbing the poor & middle class.

In return, those BLOODY THIRSTY GREED ROBBERS ARE giving themselves the MILLIONS of BONUSES. When so many people had to announced bankruptcy then we're forced to accept the foreclosures our houses by the BANKS and get laid off work while the price of necessities skyrockets.

But the top 2% of super rich pays incredibly less compare to what they're earning. UNFAIR LOW INCOME TAX RATE FOR THE SUPER RICH.

Things are gonna get worse, if we don't correct this deeply flawed financial system. This place doesn't belong to them

So for those who seen opposed to this shit, what would you say is a better course of action? Because I don't really see it. If you cats were actually living that laid off/unemployed life with no help from your parents, ♥♥♥♥♥s would be protesting too

my rough interpretation would be a skull representing death yet it's encrusted with expensive diamonds. It's like Wall Street and the financial business.

Nothing is produced, but just circulating money around with interests on it then make more $$$ from other people's miseries & misfortunes.

It's disgusting and inhumane. The Wall Street is the prime example of "greedy."

They don't give a flying fuck about their own country where they've been born n raised in. It always just comes down to the matter of how to make more $$$

fucking sad...

OUR GRIEVANCES
1.Campaign Finance Reform
All votes are no longer equal in our Democracy. Money must be put outside of politics, or politicians will continue to pander to those who contribute the most to their campaigns, rather than their own constituencies. Specifically, we abhor the decision by the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. FEC. Corporations are NOT people.

2.True Shared Sacrifice
While corporate profits have been skyrocketing and the wealthy have been getting wealthier, the average worker’s income has dramatically dropped. While the cost of living has exponentially increased, wages have not followed. It has been shown time and time again that tax cuts for the wealthy are NOT effective. Taxes on those who practice greed should be raised.

3.Equality in Justice
This great nation was founded on liberty, but also, on equality. When the balance of justice is swayed in favor of those with wealth, the very fabric of this nation is torn apart. The decision of a judge should not be based upon the race, creed, or wealth of an individual, but rather, the content of the case.

4.The End of the Revolving Door
The Obama administration was supposed to bring change and hope to our country, but instead, brought us into despair and insecurity. Those working in his administration are the very people whom we are fighting against. Those who enter Washington should not be representatives of the elites, but representatives of the people. One cannot simply enter an administration, reap its benefits, and simply exit.

but didnt this all start when bush was in office for 8 FUCKING YEARS... where the fuck was all this rhetoric and outrage when this muthafucka ran this bitch into the ground in the first place and made so much profit off a certain war that started off trying to find "wmd" an dick cheney got them pockets full from haliburton. Yes obama ran on the platform of change and nothing has happened but it's just funny how peopl are all of a sudden mad about the state of the usa when this man is in office, but muthafuckas were shook as shit when the dick/bush was in office walking around blowing shit up, not giving a fuck about hurricane katrina,etc,etc,etc,Shit if u questioned the war u were a terrorist and not patriotic and all the under hand ass bills passed during those 8 Fucking Years, people kill me with this shit, all the politicians are in bed with each other. I don't have a problem with people protesting and uprising a revolution but it's just funny how "obama" is the fucking devil and he caused all this but bush is just chilling on his ranch here in texas, not giving a shit bc he got his paper and ran.
edit: i just wish obama had a back bone like bush and stood up for himself, that is really my only problem and this shouldnt be about race bc if ur paper isn't generational or at least in the top 5 percent of the country we are all screwedsmokeyface
September 28, 2011 @ 23:18:39
i really don't think it's directed at obama

they're saying they're sick of politicians promising things and not delivering

I think a 5th point should be added, which would be government transparency
