The Demands of Children

The Canada Free Press says most of what I have to say about the demands of the people that are calling themselves the Wall Street Protesters. I am reminded of a child in a shopping cart, kicking his feet, rocking his head back and forth and screaming, “I want candy! I want candy!”, over and over as his mother tries to use the latest parenting techniques to placate him.

They have no idea how or why people create businesses, where profits come from, why anyone invests, or the failed history of the socialist communist ideas they are espousing. If we tried to do the things in this list, there would be no United States, no world economy, no grocery stores. The survivors of the collapse would spend their lives trying to grow enough food to get through each winter and fighting over the debris of the greatest civilization in history.

Here’s what they think they want. You couldn’t make this up.

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

  1. I like number one. Start a trade war with, well, the entire rest of the world, and then make minimum wage $20/hr. What genius!

    Why stop there? As long as we're pulling numbers out of our butts, why not $50/hr, or $100? Why not pay everyone $100,000 per year, whether they work or not?

    When the food riots are going, and the blood is shin-deep in the cities, do you think they might think you can't just decide all prices arbitrarily?
