ATLAS SHRUGGED CALLING! - Group to Call for 'Robin Hood Tax' at Protests Saturday


Recommended Posts

Folks:

Apparently Adbusters http://www.adbusters.org/ began the Occupy Wall Street [OWS] movement with a social media e-mail ad last March or April. They are out of Vancouver Canada and have been around for two (2) decades or so. **

An anti-capitalist group which sparked the Occupy Wall Street movement has called for global protests Saturday to demand that leaders of the Group of 20 (G20) nations impose a "Robin Hood tax" on financial transactions and currency trades.

Adam,

Here's one I read this morning on Fox...

EXCLUSIVE: ACORN Playing Behind Scenes Role in 'Occupy' Movement

I really abhor "pulling the wool over eyes" approach. What pissed me off most was the two-for-one sleight of hand used, with regard to hiring homeless, and then convincing them (through deceit) to knock on doors for contributions for programs that NYCC had no intention of making good on. Instead, unbeknownst to them, the contributors ended up paying for the money train to keep the ex-ACORN folks employed and supplied. NYCC shamelessly hired and a few good-hearted and down-trodden folks, leaving them with a guilty conscience once they realized what was up. Of course, NYCC will say they did a good thing by providing jobs. BS!

The government did a good thing in shutting ACORN down. However, it's a different look, same shit with NYCC.
