    And what is your point Doc? He who has the gold rules. It’s been that way since we used cowrie shells for barter.

    Or is that supposed to be some big secret?

    It makes me smile seeing these misguided 99%’ers defending the 1%. Now go and graze on that grass you good little sheeple.

    As long as most people have enough food, a house that keeps them reasonably comfortable and a car that runs, we aren’t going to have any kind of a revolution, because they have lives that occupy their time.
    However, the middle class is shrinking, a larger and larger percentage of the money is going to the 1%ers, and if that continues, there will be a point where there aren’t enough of them to kill all of us before we kill them.

    fortunately, I was indeed raised in the “back woods” and taught the value of hard work and budget management as opposed to reliance on government largesse….. as you were IF your past statements of being “born and raised” in West (by god) Virginia are true (which I accept on face value).

    But really Doc, in what endeavor exactly does the one with NO FUNDS control the action?

    How naive is THAT comment.

    I suppose George, Ben, John and the boys were the paupers in the colonies LOL

    So was the American one (yes I know humans are a contentious lot so revolt is common) bottom up that is from the perspective of the King. As I “believe” that to be the case in every one you cite. The “leaders” of the revolt are NOT paupers. However, those that do the actual dying usually are.

    Take the French one, who were the leaders?
    One was Georges Jacques Danton the son of Jacques Danton, an attorney himself and a man of power and influence and wealth. Then there was an obscure general that helped remember him? I’m sure HE was just a poor man.

    It’s perspective Doc and just as a side note the French revolt was because of the huge DEBT the the King and his predecessor Kings ran up… but that is off the subject.

    And by definition – well mine anyway – a revolution is always bottom up in terms of who is in charge . It’s money against money though with us po’boys doing all the fightin’ and dyin’…

    ^ Yup, the only revolution in the world’s history was American.

    (good grief. THAT’S naive. And downright ignorant.)France, 1789. Russia, 1917. Argentina, 1945. Cuba, 1959. Czechoslovakia, 1968…..

    All bottom up.

    America never had a revolution. the same people who were, in fact, in power before the ‘revolution’, were the same people who were in power after the ‘revolution’. Hence, no revolution.

    ^the british may have THOUGHT they were in charge, but they were in fact NOT. they were essentially an occupying force. the ‘founding fathers’ were wealthy, powerful and in control, before and after the so-called revolution.

    no need to get nasty jeff. The british were across an ocean, only accessible by square rigged sailing vessels and poor communications. your ‘percentage’ of loyalists/rebellious/neutrals may have come from a textbook, but the fact of the matter is who was willing to fight and die for a ‘cause’?

    for example the boston ‘massacre’ only killed a handful of people (and was staged). The loyalists and neutrals weren’t willing to fight.

    plain and simple, the british couldn’t hold onto what they really didn’t own, didn’t have the power/force/communications.

    the only thing that was ‘overturned’ in the American ‘revolution’ was an extremely remote taxing authority.

    probably the hardest thing about ‘revolution’ was to get the constitution ratified, as very few of the citizens really gave a rats ass about it. Much like the US elections today.

    As for “remote taxing authority” I would suggest you study American history and perhaps read Washington’s response to the Whiskey Rebellion and attempt to understand the period of time under the Articles of Confederation. You seem to have some huge gaps in your class based revisionism perspective given there was no “Constitution” as we see it today, it was the Articles of Confederation which were later thrown out and rewritten in 1791 while the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783. Do the math"

    I have an advanced degree (masters) in the subject. But your mind is closed and i have no need to open it.

    Our hatred for the rich is a dangerous thing that Politicians are happy to take advantage of. The top 1% pay about forty percent of the taxes. What would our quality of life be without them. We drive on the roads they pay for. We are protected by the police and fire departments that they, in large part, pay for. We work at the jobs they provide, though we may not believe we are being paid what we are worth.
    If you don’t like rich people, go get a job from a poor person.
    If we realy want to be angry at the top 1%, how about those on capitol hill who feel that it is our responsibility to keep them wealthy now and for the rest of their lives.

    churchillwasright: Occupy is still active. Like the Green Party, clean energy, and honest politicians, the corporate media is not permitted to mention them.
