Earlier this week, a Virginia-based organization came under fire for leading 3rd grade students at Woodbrook Elementary in Charlottesville to write a song titled “We Are Part of the 99.”

The song, with its reference to the 1 percent and 99 percent was obviously talking about the Occupy protests that occurred around the country.

According to the school district’s story, the students wrote:
I used to be part of the 1 percent

I worked all the time

Never saw my family

Couldn’t make life rhyme

Then the bubble burst

if i go to work, and particularly if i work extra hard in hopes of reaching a goal
then i am part of the "evil" one percent?

thats effed up
i remember in high school i asked my teacher what was the difference between republican and democrat. she or he said that dem's are for the people and repub's are for the government. honestly i can't believe a teacher was allowed to tell a young and impressionable myself such a thing. that was pure opinion and super vague

So, if I understand this right....

That video is advocating two thirds of the reporters, which are employed by private companies...

They claim that Ron Paul is going to....do what to them? Force the private companies to fire two thirds of the reporters? That video baffles me completely.

The more I think on this, the angrier I get about it.

The reporters are seriously bitching about less war. Which means less lives (Both American and non) lost.

They care about their jobs more than American Lives? What the BRAINY?!?

The more I think about it, the angrier I get. This should be a cause of celebration - military action costs lives on all sides. Minimizing or ceasing military action directly translates to lives saved. Have some people fallen so much as to value their jobs more than lives?!? ESPECIALLY American Troops?

Yes. Human life is cheap. If 5000 Indians (or whatever) die, do you even notice unless you see it on the news? 6 billion people could cease to exist, and chances are pretty damn good you'd never heard of any of them. Life is cheap, because it is now so comon as to be taken for granted.

He does look weak. I'll bet Hillary Clinton could beat him in arm wrestling.

That little weakling is still the only Congressman to ever hit a home run in the annual Congressional baseball game.

The correction will happen regardless. The only question is how long we try to delay it, and in the delay, make make the inevitable that much worse.

Maybe. I am not convinced there isn't a third option.

Anyway, that reminded me of something I read today about a famous economist:

What kind of third option would exist for a massively overleveraged market?

I 'd at "more traditional conservative perspective". Does he mean the perspective that's only existed in the Republican party for a decade or two?

Here is why religious politicians like Santorum are dangerous:

Their number one loyalty is to their god, number two is their country, i.e., your rights, the law, any responsibility they hold. Everything that has to do with YOUR rights and the laws that govern the society we live in are tainted with the views that he/she holds because of his/her number one loyalty, g-o-d.
Therefor if you happen to be gay and want to get married, if we have a "leader" like Santorum then your civil rights mean sh*t, because "god" said when a man lyes with another man it is an abomination. Or maybe your a godless heathen like me and you don't want your kids getting taught bullsh*t like "intelligent design" in schools, too goddamn bad, now your biology book comes with an added section and a warning sticker. That's why we're behind the rest of the world when it comes to science.
