“These protestors are trying to destroy the jobs of working people in this city, it’s not productive. If you want jobs you have to assist companies and give them confidence to go and hire people”

NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg on Occupy Wallstreet

He was speaking Republican, let me translate this for people who don’t speak that strange language….

“Destroy jobs”- Try to create a level playing field so 1% doesn’t control the majority of the country’s wealth.

Not productive”- It’s scary how many people are showing up, we must label them as slackers to discredit their cause.

Assist companies”- Keep quiet while they reap in more wealth by standing with their foot on the neck of the working class.

Give them confidence”- Give them more corporate tax cuts now or else.

Hire people”- Layoff Americans and outsource the jobs to other countries because those people will work for peanuts and they don’t have silly laws against things like child labor sweatshops.

“If asking a millionaire to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or a teacher makes me a class warrior, a warrior for the middle class, I will accept that; I’ll wear that as a badge of honor,” Mr. Obama said. “Because the only class warfare I’ve seen is the battle that’s been waged against the middle class in this country for a decade now.” Obama Pushes Jobs Bill in Denver - NYTimes.com (via reagan-was-a-horrible-president)

“The promise of the American dream has given many hope that they themselves could one day rise up the economic ladder. But according to a study released those already in financially-stable circumstances should fear falling down a few rungs too. The study… found that nearly a third of Americans who were part of the middle class as teenagers in the 1970s have fallen out of it as adults… its findings suggest the relative ease with which people in the U.S. can end up in low-income, low-opportunity lifestyles — even if they started out with a number of advantages. Though the American middle class has been repeatedly invoked as a key factor in any economic turnaround, numerous reports have suggested that the middle class enjoys less existential security than it did a generation ago, thanks to stagnating incomes and the decline of the industrial sector.” Middle Class Death Watch — 33 Frightening Economic Developments | | AlterNet (via alternet-working)
