Yep, let's shut 'er down! Let's see how people do without that evil big oil, big pharma, all evil corporations and evil fat cats, nothing for a week. We'll keep emergency operations going like hospitals and medical but nothing else. If you work for someone rich or a corporation, no work...no pay for a week. Electricity...I don't think so. Internet, radio, cell phones...NOPE! I don't even thing we can fathom what we'd lose.

Think about what you wouldn't have. It's not Atlas Shrugged but a mini-version of it. Just enough to wake stupid people up and give them a healthy dose or reality about their lives and the economy. You could go out on the street with your homemade sign and protest them, you'll have plenty of time on your hands and no where to go!

    The way I read this, you're asking the corporations to shut down, and lay off ALL employees for the week. The responses I've seen here, assume that you're asking the employees to walk off the job. If it's the former, then YES, shut down. See how the government, especially B.O. reacts! If it's the latter, well, the corporations will just hire replacements within a day, and have little to no effect.

    we already know america is run by corporations and the rich, who has argued that point? if their workers stopped showing up for work, they would be screwed, cos they sure as hell wouldnt get off their padded elite arses to bow down to the likes of you.

    that is what they are banking on..desperate people willing to work for practically nothing, to use and abuse and throw away.
    lambs to the slaughter.. buying out all competition and making it their own, reducing the workforce, until they have all the money and can dictate what terms they wish, to the consumer, businesses who can no longer innovate, or offer jobs,but keep blaming the poor, it is so much easier.

    No, blaming the rich is such an easy target. All that envy and jealousy that is naturally brewing in the liberal. No one is stopping anyone from creating their own business, if it's so darn easy. Go for it!

    I've been saying people should do this for about 3 years now. General strikes are one of the few non-violent tactics that I could see ACTUALLY working. Waving signs outside Goldman Sachs like some idiot hippy will not do it.

    just like jesus would do.

    Matthew 19 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

    22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

    23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    people that make less than 25k a year.
  • Gracie ... jesus c... 2012/07/14 23:35:43

    A family making $25k would be eligible for all forms of government assistance. Those families many times have more disposible income than families making much more. Comparisons should be done including government subsidies.
  • jesus c... Gracie ... 2012/07/15 06:35:34 (edited)

    well i made 22,000 last year. my income tax refund was about. 5,400. i applied for medicaid for my children and have been denied every time. maybe they don't like my handwriting or something. other than earned income credit the gov. doesn't give me anything.
  • Gracie ... jesus c... 2012/07/17 01:09:41

    How many kids do you have and where are their fathers? Do they contribute? All those things count. If they aren't in the picture you apparently aren't trying hard enough. I've got single men on my mail route with no dependents that get food stamps and medicaid and they aren't even disabled or anything that I can see.
  • jesus c... Gracie ... 2012/07/17 02:35:49

    i have 3. their fathers are me. they live with me. i have sole custody. . i have applied for medicaid 5 times in the last 8 months. denied, denied, denied. denied. denied... maybe it's florida

    Okay, sorry, where is the mother(s)? I live in Florida, it's not a tough place to get Medicaid. My husband's nephew's family had a baby, a twin, with a heart problem and not only did they put the baby on Medicaid, they put the entire family on it. They probably make at least $70,000! What's the reason on your denial?
  • jesus c... Gracie ... 2012/07/17 03:08:42

    their mother lives in same county as us in north central fl, fl, had never denied my children untill last year.

    Add to your list, no bank deposits, max ATM withdrawals, don't pay your bills (whats a little late fee), stay at home, No shopping.

    One week, probably enough time, but have it open ended.

    Next, the Demands.

    Demand full resignation of the Congress, Senate and President, plus all Agency heads.

    Yep! I lived in Atlanta for a couple of years, and sleeping is rough at this time of year with no a/c.

    My sister lived on a small island without electricity for 12 years. She said she got quite used to living by the sun. They read by flashlight too lol.

    its simpler than that. its like that situation where Obama's policies have hurt employment.

    the first ones to get lay offs are the ones with Obama stickers on their bumpers.

    as the taxes go up, should that moron be re elected, triage takes place...

    I know a small business owner that actually laid off someone because of her support for Obama. He figured if anyone should go, it should be her since she was fundamentally for taxing him at a higher rate.
