OWS moves into their next phase; “The Robin Hood Tax”

The Occupiers have been organized from the get go.  They have painted a picture of themselves as a disorganized group who just happened to gather together on September 17th, (Constitution Day) to express their multifaceted, disjointed complaints.  “Not so!”, says Erik Erickson of “Red State”.  Well those of us who know that “Occupy  Wall Street” (it’s simply amazing that such a spontaneous movement has put together a print publication a high tech website and serves the Occupier’s  organic, corn fed, “filet mignon” type food???) was originally labeled “Days of Rage”, organized by the SEIU’s Steven Lerner, heartily agree with Mr. Erickson’s belief.

Enjoy these ‘2’ articles from “Red State” and stay on top of what’s really happening, because the mainstream media is not showing you the truth of this movement.  Then ask yourself (and maybe even take the time to ask the MSM); “Why?”

Unions & #OccupyWallStreet Reveal Their Hidden Agenda: A Worldwide Financial Tax

If there’s one thing about the Marxists controlling today’s unions, it is that they are predictable. If you watch them long enough, the pattern is always the same: Demand the extreme with something attainable in mind as the fallback position.

In labor relations, the making of outrageous demands is a classic negotiating tactic at the bargaining table because union negotiators know company negotiators will only agree to what they are willing to based on business economics. In politics, however, the union tactic is an absolute winner because their prey (politicians, many of whom are bought by unions anyway) always fall for it and, besides, it’s only the taxpayers who are stuck with the tab. One thing though, whether at the bargaining table or in politics, unions always reveal their hidden agenda—eventually. Click here to read the full story.

#OccupySetup: Dems Introduce “Steal From The Rich, Give To The Poor” Tax Act

Let’s put this into some context, shall we? For nearly two months, America has watch the violence-laden, union-sponsored, carnival-like freak show of the #OccupyWallSt movement push its Neo-Communist agenda. Then, the day that union boss Richard Trumka heads over to Cannes, an #OccupyWallSt-union brigade of protesters expose the movement’s hidden agenda by announcing they will be taking their angry protests outside the Treasury Department to demand the so-called “Robin Hood Tax,” Democrats in the House and Senate introduce a bill to pass said tax:

This week, a bill was introduced that would impose a new tax on certain trading transactions in financial markets. The tax – which is aimed at the wealthy – is already being called the “Robin Hood Tax” and is part of H.R. 3313, sponsored by Rep. Peter A. DeFazio (D-OR). Twelve co-sponsors in the House have signed onto the bill so far: Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR); Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA); Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI); Rep. Donna F. Edwards (D-MD); Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA); Rep. Maurice D. Hinchey (D-NY); Rep. Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hi); Rep. Henry C. “Hank” Johnson, Jr. (D-GA); Rep. John P. Sarbanes (D-MD); Rep. Louise McIntosh Slaughter (D-NY); Rep. Betty Sutton (D-OH) and Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT). Nope, those Ds aren’t typos. All of the sponsors of the bill are Democrats.

And, of course, there’s this:

This idea invoking the name of Robin has been around for awhile… October 29th is the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France. #Occupy originator Adbusters wants its followers to “rise up and demand that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1 percent ROBIN HOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades.”
