What We Want

The Flea Partiers don’t occupy they infest

I’m protesting with the occupiers of Wall Street. And I believe that Obama needs to stop pussyfooting around with trying to raise taxes on income. That’s chicken feed. For the sake of fairness, he needs to go after wealth that exists. He needs to appoint a new fairness czar and create a new agency to define the proper amount of wealth that people will be allowed to retain. The president needs to draw a line just like we do with tax rates. Above a given net worth, he needs to tell the American public—what more do you and your family need?

Obama needs to stop being so damn chummy with hoarders like Mark Zukerberg at Facebook who is purported to be worth about $17 billion but who employs relatively few people.  The agency should set up a shop inside Facebook tasked with diverting Zukerberg’s money into clean energy projects and into the repair of our infrastructure.  The Agency needs to go after John Kerry who is hoarding about a billion dollars of Teresa “shove it” Hines’ money which was clearly ill-gotten. Kerry did nothing to earn it. He just married it. Moreover, it was amassed by Hines’ ketchup-magnate husband who underpaid his factory workers and donated money to the Republican Party.

Obama’s new czar needs to go after the Pelosi family which owns a couple dozen restaurants all staffed by underpaid employees. They should be unionized immediately from the busboys to the mangers. And second mortgages need taken out on all Pelosi properties so that funds can be freed up to provide broader services for the immigrant population of her district. And there’s Robert Redford. He owns an entire ski resort staffed by underpaid, non-unionized workers. He needs to get his mind right, set an example for all the hoarders, and voluntarily send in a big check to the treasury.

And then, in California, there are all the graduates of UC Berkeley, Stanford and few other privileged universities who are holding down cushy, high-paying jobs. These people are hoarders of the first degree because they got their positions because of their belonging to their special elitist club. The confiscation of their wealth should be sent these universities so that tuition can free and available to anyone who wants to attend. It’s long past time that we looked at higher education as a basic human right.

Finally, we agree with the Muslim jihadists, “What’s ours is ours. What’s yours is ours.”

About the Author:

Larry Kelley’s life was utterly changed by 9/11. On the day after the attacks, on his way to work, he was struck by the sudden realization that World War III had commenced. Like most Americans he desperately wanted to find out who were these people who attacked us, what could ordinary citizens do to join the battle and how can those plotting to kill us in future attacks be defeated. Mr. Kelley has written scores of columns on the dangers of western complacency.
