As Democrats, and defenders of the 99%, I think it is time to ask the question?

Which side are you on?

1. You are going to have to be more specific.

Cause we are ALL going to say we are on the side of the 99%. The problem being that on any single issue, there are people who think the 99% are best served one way and some think they are best served another.

3. You are correct.

Anybody can say it. How do we know they are being honest or not?

5. Maybe they are all being honest.

I honestly don't think going over the fiscal cliff is going to be good for anybody. I think it is worth talking about a compromise somewhere. I honestly think we are going to wind up compromising anyway and that the deal we get in two weeks isn't going to be dramatically different from the deal we get today. I am part of the 99% and believe that my opinions support them.

There are people who honestly believe that we should go over the cliff rather than make any deal. They honestly believe that either we will get a better deal in a couple of weeks with the new Congress or that it is better to make no compromise. They are part of the 99% and believe that their opinions support them.

2. I wish Democrats were all defenders of the 99%

Occupy clearly showed otherwise all over this nation...

9. Pete Seeger: 'Which Side Are You On Boys'



Great Song for the new Labor Movement which appears to have been catapulted by the placing of SS on the deficit table where it never belonged and the anti-union, anti-OWS and anti-peaceful protests to Wall St corruption. It's so good to see all these organizations joining forces to protect SS right now and to prevent any use of it as a bargaining chip in any negotiations regarding something it had zero to do with.
