Does anyone remember the Occupy Movement?

Post to Twitter

losers of the occupy movement

Ah the subtle ironies of life. The “Occupy” protesters who for a full month didn’t even know why they were protesting are now fighting to get even a small mention by the American media.

I have news for the occupy movement. Your cause was doomed from the start. First of all, your movement refused to mention President Obama out of fear of being labelled racists. This was a fatal flaw in your argument that you and your ilk deserve a free ride through life.

Obama has had three years to fix the mess we call an economy and to date, has done little to do any of the things he campaigned on. Remember “Change?” The only change I see is the change in my pocket after being bent over by Washington. Nothing has changed. In fact, government has grown exponentially in his reign as “The Anointed One.”

Second, the occupy movement had no real agenda and did not manage to put together an agenda for nearly 30 days into their protests.

When an actual agenda was produced, it was nothing more then an incredibly selfish list of demands that would be impossible to fulfill. It was also a direct attack on the American way of life.

This my incredibly selfish and stupid “occupy” friends is what caused you to lose the American public. This is the same American population that has to get out of bed every day and schlep their way through another day of work at a menial job to make ends meet and pay their own way through life.

Third was the way the occupy protesters have little or no regard for those around you. You “expect” people to understand your selfish wants and needs yet refuse flatly to admire the people that work for a living.

Blocking freeways and intersections only served to make life miserable for people like myself that were simply trying to get through another day.

The Fourth nail in the “occupy” coffin was the flotsam and jetsam that called themselves “protesters.” Your core group consisted of nothing more than pot heads, hippies, homeless people are molesters according to some news reports.

You people wanted Americans to take you serious, but that is absolutely impossible when your core proteters are unkempt and disheveled looking.

The Occupy protesters came off like a bunch of sore losers holding out a collective bag and saying “whats in it for me?”

Those are just a few thoughts on the “Occupy” movement by yours truly. The only movement America saw were the bowel movements that your protesters were taking in the bushes near your protests. JD

Six people shot at Antioch CA Sweet Sixteen Party

Post to Twitter

I love articles like this one where the editor of the newspaper omits the actual physical description of the people responsible for the shooting out of fear of offending any particular race. Oddly enough, black people are described as “Dark complexion” Hispanics as “”medium colored skin” and Asians as “Pacific Islander or Asian.” You have to love the left. JD

ANTIOCH, Calif. — Six people, including five teens, were injured when gunfire erupted at a girl’s 16th birthday party in the San Francisco Bay area, authorities said Sunday.

Police in Antioch believe three or four male partygoers opened fire Saturday night when two groups began arguing, said police Lt. Scott Willerford. Violence is not common in the neighborhood in Antioch, which is about 38 miles northeast of San Francisco.

“Weapons were brandished and numerous shots were fired from multiple guns,” Willerford said.

The gunfire wounded a 13-year-old boy, two 16-year-old boys, two 18-year-old men and a 21-year-old woman, police said. Their injuries ranged from a minor grazing wound to an abdomen wound, police said. Police did not say how many shots were fired, or specify what kind of weapons were used.

Three of the wounded have been released from hospitals, but the 13-year-old, an 18-year-old and the woman remained in serious but stable condition, police said. Their names have not been released.

Police are looking for three or four suspects described as “young men,” but acknowledge they haven’t been able to obtain more detailed descriptions. Willerford said callers reporting the shooting had said between 70 and 80 people were at the party, but many of them ran away when the gunfire broke out.

Authorities said the party was being thrown by the girl’s parents.

Obama Supporting Starbucks CEO paid $16 million in 2011 fiscal year

Post to Twitter

You have to love the socialist elite. They are truly wanting to be a ruling class and have the rest of us be serfs and peons to do their bidding.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz was given a pay package worth roughly $16 million in the company’s 2011 fiscal year.

Starbucks performed well last year, but Schultz’s compensation shrank by 26 percent compared to 2010, when he was given $22 million for bringing the company roaring back from the recession and more than doubling its profit.

Schultz received a nearly $1.4 million salary in 2011, according to a document filed Thursday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. That’s up 8 percent from the $1.3 million salary in the prior year. His cash performance bonus, as well as the value of his stock and option awards, shrank.

Starbucks gave him stock awards in 2011 worth $5.5 million, which is down 48 percent from the $10.5 million he was awarded the prior year. He was also given option awards worth nearly $6 million, down 4 percent from the $6.2 million in the prior year.

The company gave him a cash performance bonus of nearly $3 million in 2011, down from $3.5 million the prior year.

Schultz also received $235,294 in other perks such as security and use of the company plane, compared with $231,664 in perks the year before.

Starbucks continued its strong performance in 2011, as more customers began to visit its stores around the globe. The Seattle-based company’s 2011 fiscal year revenue increased 7 percent to $11.7 billion and its profit jumped nearly 32 percent to $1.25 billion, or $1.62 per share.

The Associated Press formula calculates an executive’s total compensation during the last fiscal year by adding salary, bonuses, perks, above-market interest the company pays on deferred compensation and the estimated value of stock and stock options awarded during the year. The AP formula does not count changes in the present value of pension benefits. That makes the AP total slightly different in most cases from the total reported by companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The value that a company assigned to an executive’s stock and option awards for 2011 was the present value of what the company expected the awards to be worth to the executive over time. Companies use one of several formulas to calculate that value. However, the number is just an estimate, and what an executive ultimately receives will depend on the performance of the company’s stock in the years after the awards are granted. Most stock compensation programs require an executive to wait a specified amount of time to receive shares or exercise options.
