Occupy Philadelphia

While in Philadelphia City Hall on other business, I captured the following footage of the protesters operating under the banner of Occupy Philadelphia. Here’s a look at the tents, signs, and a few of the speakers. It’s worth watching and then you can draw your own conclusions.

So, what do you think?

Pay VERY close attention….

… as you watch the following video because there will be a test afterward.

What limits the power of government in the United States?

What is the worse form of economic phenomenon?

What happens when the government is involved in all sorts of social engineering?

Go back and view it again and think about what is happening in the WORLD today.

Ah, remember when…

…the federal debt was ONLY 2 trillion dollars? That was back in 1986 or so. This year alone, the U.S. Federal Government blew through an extra trillion or so of borrowed money. Hey, no worries. Back in the day that was a lot of money. Today? Chump change. Well, Ridley Scott and Mr. Grace made this commercial back in the mid-1980’s. Remember it?

I do. And even Dan Rather squeaked out a story about it, which must have been quite a stressing situation for him given his politics. Take a look.

Oh, well. Why worry? When the country goes bankrupt and your money is worthless, it’ll be a socialist paradise. Everyone will be equal at the bottom.

In Congress…

We hold these truths to be self evident…

Are you listening Madam Speaker? Mr. President? Or will you continue the way King George did?
