from the site

"Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants."

Myself, I'd like to occupy The Hand It Over Theatre.

These incessant, whining, yapping, grandstanding non profit leeches now want to limit the seating capacity of any entertainemnt venues that are built with our soon to be 3 (4?) casinos in Mass.

The Hand it Over Theatre cry babies pay no real estate taxes, no state income taxes, no fed'l income taxes and the restoration of that edifice has been subsidized by we the taxpayers to the tunes of millions and they CANT ++++ING compete???????

They continue to bang their tin cups on Beacon Hill, crying foul that any large seating capacity entertianment venue at the new casinos will hit their market share. Hey tough cookies!!!!!!!!!

This will negatively impact how much a bidder will be able to pay the state for a casino license as well as drive down casino profits which will in turn reduce the income taxes they pay to Mass.

Why in gods name do we CONTINUE to have to subsidize The Hand It Over Theatre? when is enuff, enuff?

What out Paulie, next these SOB's will wanna limit or take over the Piedmont NOLA fest b/c they will be thinking thats an act they have at teh Hand It Over Theatre.

The sense of entitlemnt of these non profits is overbearing.

Lead, follow, or get teh hell out of the way and stop whining. Take you monkey and your organ grinder and stop begging.

Next Act....The Hand It Over Theater folks at Park and Highland or at Park and Chandler with their coffee cups playing in the traffic emblazoned with:

"Save The Hanover"

And also BTW, so no on eelse has any problems with the city gauranteeing a $900,000 loan so a 1 year old local manufacturer can expand and allegedly add 35 more jobs to the current 45 jobs they have.

Many Americans believe that the influence of special interests are crippling our nation’s ability to deal with the issues at hand. The meltdown in Madison, WI and unending brinkmanship over budget deficit issues are typical examples. Big money buys votes and compromise is no longer an option for those controlled by large war chests.

So how about this:

Lets take big money out of politics. The Supreme Court has recently ruled that political spending can be unlimited. It seems that political gridlock has gotten worse since that ruling. If we want to correct the problem, we must move in the opposite direction. The only way to overrule the Supreme Court is to amend the US Constitution.

Amendment to the Constitution of the United States

“No private organization, except political parties, shall directly or indirectly fund or promote a political cause”.

This eliminates all political action committees but does not prevent private donations by individuals. Lobbyists will have a harder time buying influence. It does not prevent the government from providing matching funds.

Tell me what you think.
