Protesting Wall Street Hippies

Occupy Hoboken buildings with graffiti?

10/27/2011 Update:

Just continuing the uptick in residential Hoboken buildings getting tagged with graffiti…

The Metrostop at 800 Jackson Street was not only vandalized with ordinary graffiti, but “Occupy Wall St.” graffiti as well. This hasn’t even been cleaned up in a couple weeks already.

What is “the fair share?” asks Peter Schiff

10/27/2011:

Gotta love when these “Occupy” protesters are asked direct questions.

Investment genius Peter Schiff did just that recently – asking protesters things like “what is my fair share?” and “I employ 150 people – how many do YOU employ?”

What are the Wall Street Protesters chanting for?

10/17/2011:

I’ve chosen NOT to immerse myself in the distraction latest trend of “Occupy Protesters” all over the world. I personally think they have it all wrong, and have gone after the wrong people. But that’s a story for some other time (maybe)…

Here’s basically what they’re all saying:

What Do We Want?
Something!
When Do We Want it?
Whenever!

Actually, whiskeymerengue, drug use was rare. During WWII, soldiers did not use. The public had rare usage. If you’ll do some DD and read up on the history, drugs did not significantly enter U.S. society until the mid 60’s. I wasn’t sure what to make of what my mother told me the Viet-Cong did to influence the U.S. troops by getting them onto drugs to affect their fighting behavior. So I wondered about that for years, since you don’t see anyone reporting on it, or even writing that part of the story into movies covering Vietnam. Yes, they showed drug use, but not the story behind how it developed. It wasn’t until years later that I heard about a book out of publication called:

Red Cocaine: The Drugging of America and the West

racier..When your mom was in south east asia how in the hell did drugs infiltrate our youth in colllages and hippy comunes ?? ghettos, East LA..? Guess they all called ups for a delivery…What caused the mob wars in the l30’s 40’s was the introduction of drugs that surpassed prostution and bookmaking…During ww2 on Sapian my dads friend said after a Banzai charge ,many Japanese dead were juiced up with drugs and not just saki..so much for the Bushido code..Native americans grew maryjane and other mind altering drugs prior to the whites mfg it chemically …After the viet nam conflict us vets flew drug runs from central america to the florida keys ..BTW I say Conflict..Also if you remember Korea 50 to 53,,was not called a war,but a police action i never heard of any police being there..You can read all the books you want but talk to the GI’s that served in these conflicts..In afgan the chit grows wild yet it’s never burned…In turkey same but if you get caught you do 30 years..guess your right.[quote comment=”211891″]Actually, whiskeymerengue, drug use was rare.

Anyway, people don’t realize the role of Kennedy, Johnson, and drugs. Or how the communists (Viet-Cong who were south Vietnamese) would befriend the U.S. troops, invite them to parties where they handed them the drugs and got them hooked – where before they deployed, they had never touched it. How drugs manipulated the attitudes against the U.S. and in favor of the north Vietnamese communists. The entire conflict was a perfect example of asymmetric warfare – where the U.S. dominated in weaponry and advanced soldiers, and the communist Vietnamese dominated in social engineering (see Fonda, John Kerry, and the rest). The U.S. troops won every battle they entered. The communist Vietnamese won every battle the U.S. troops had no order to enter (on the homeland against how drugs changed the nation). We see the process continuing today.

There was a better saying about drugs in viet nam, when some one asked a GI about the drug problem the GI answered there’s no problem you can get all you want.

I remember when this blog was more about the goings-on in Hoboken, but I’ll bite.

Amidst the distortions, here is an explanation of just what OWS means, even if random soundbytes don’t provide a coherent message:

Wait, you are really saying that people protesting the Vietnam War caused it to go on as long as it did? Really? The library is right next to Church Square Park, crack open one of the books they have in there on the subject. Did Nixon or Kissinger tell you that in a dream?[quote comment=”211673″]What so many posters forgot to ask their parents and grand parents was were the protests any different than those in the 60′s era woodstock burning college dorms and prolonging the viet nam war costing countless usa lives?

HomeTeam said “Did Nixon or Kissinger tell you that in a dream?” (btw, I noticed you no longer say Vietnam War, but have now changed to Conflict – why the change in how you cite it? Common mistake) I hope you realize that Kennedy (Democrat) began the Vietnam Conflict, and Johnson (Democrat) escalated it, with two Democrat administrations accounting for 8 years of the 12 years total. Let’s not forget the protests began (1962) in Kennedy’s administration in his response to the spread of communism (the protestors actually protested against anti-communism sentiment in America). Let’s not forget it was Kennedy who led the war agains the spread (and Nikita Khrushchev “defeat the US from within”), as seen in Bay of Pigs and Vietnam. Ironically, it was a Democrat who initiated the war against the spread of communism, unlike today’s version who supports (variations of) it. And let’s not forget the protests continued through another Democrat’s, L. B. Johnson administration and escalation. BTW, Ladybird Johnson/family owned Bell Helicopters, and through the 60’s, the Bell UH-1 Iroquois became heavily used (iconic even) – as the Democrat escalation continued, more helicopters were ordered. As to the battles themselves, the U.S. never lost. It was the Congress and Pentagon who meddled against total victory by stopping the military from following the North and Viet-Cong into Cambodia to finish them. As to the attitudes towards the conflict, the communists had the guerilla concept of getting the soldiers hooked on drugs (free). This was at a time when… Read more »

Racer…In my faded memory I recall in 1954 Pres Eisenhower’s administration was sending aid to the french foreign legion with C 47’s naturally unmarked ships. Dien Bien Phu was the last strong hold as the viet namise wanted an end to Colonialism by the french after many years.The Bay Of Pigs was planned by the Eisenhower adm and dean Rusk..JFk and the CIA continued the operation..in cuba..No air support..As for the escalation of the conflict,not war,JFK said its the souths fight to win or lose and the US would support with arms $$$ etc..Plus a few thousand so called advisors.In 62.JP hunt business man from texas had wanted for treason posters made up prior to jjks trip to Dallas..As for the choppers and other aircraft were also owned by Hughes mfg co in texas..5000 choppers of all kinds were built..by that company alone.But only But after JFK’s demise .LBj increased the conflict starting with the Tonkin Gulf thing in 1964…Westmorland asked for 500.000 troops..Useless targets were bombed because LBJ stopped bombing of hanoi and the sea ports.Only untill Nixon resumed the christmas bombing of major targets did the north come to the peace table..As for the drugs,where have you been all this time? Drugs have been a problem for years and not just from south east asia..Mexico,central Americia,turkey,afgan..Contrare read over and see that I blaim LBJ ..You fight a war to win not drop troops get a body count and pick em up tomorrow..We have deja vu in Afgan..When will… Read more »

Fine. If you ever get a chance, ask people who were there about how the communists/viet-con used drugs to manipulate the soldiers. The worst were the traitors in the South who sided with the North. When she was younger and single, my mother was around all this and knew who was what. Most of the manipulated friendships began casually on the streets and bars. They’d befriend the U.S. soldiers, invite them to their homes and parties and introduce them to the drugs, which directly affected combat. While that was a brilliant strategy on their part, it just pisses me off that most people have no idea of how drugs played a central role to attitudes within the soldiers and protestors in America who were against those in America who were against the march of communism. But I think what hit the soldiers the most, besides the meddling of the government against finality, was that when they came home, all those protestors attacked the returning soldiers. When they had deployed and flew to the conflict, America was one way, the old way. When they came back, it was a different America.[quote comment=”211871″]It was actually a comment on his open animosity towards people protesting “North Vietnam cannot defeat or humiliate the United States.

Seeing as my father was a Marine fighter pilot during said conflict and both of my grandfathers were sinking u-boats and assorted German aquatic pests during WWII, I think I can take this brief moment to take the vodka from in front of your mouth and have you pucker up and kiss my ass. None of your “examples” show any sort of correlation between protesting the Vietnam conflict and the lengthening of the war. I would agree that the ridiculous terms of engagement during Vietnam and all of our current conflicts have cause countless American soldiers lives. Exercising the right to protest? No. [quote comment=”211835″]HOME TEAM considering your age and liberal education.your opinion, unless you lost a few kin in any foreign conflict..

I am a liberal person and I am very sure that Jane Fonda was a traitor who never should have been allowed back into our country. Still, the protests did shorten the war. And just in case you are wondering, I am old enough to remember what was happening, and I went with my brother the day he joined the navy during the war. Either way – that Schiff guy is a lying D-bag.[quote comment=”211835″]HOME TEAM considering your age and liberal education.your opinion, unless you lost a few kin in any foreign conflict..
