1125 2011 A Thanksgiving holiday message to OWS folks – make yourselves rich by occupying jobs created by FARJHO and SwapRent on Main Street

Once I went to a seafood restaurant in the village while I was vacationing in the South Pacific island resort. I saw many buckets of live crabs laying around the floor. All of them had a lid on but one. I was curious to ask the owner of the restaurant why this particular bucket had no lid on. The owner said, “Oh, those are the socialist crabs. They don’t need a lid. As soon as any crab climbs up higher, other crabs in the bucket will pull them down for sure. So no crabs could ever climb up higher and get out.”

Hmmm …. I sort of got it right away why they were called socialist crabs. The socialists simply spend too much time worrying about how other people would make more money than they do rather than spending time to learn new skills to compete in the free market and make more money for themselves. They seem to enjoy more on how to pull other people down rather than working harder to learn how to climb up themselves to get out of poverty.

Why bother asking us to support their cause to indiscriminately tax all the rich people after some of the 1% may have made their money legitimately through their hard work and intelligence under a free market system? There should be no problems for them to protest to get the people power to mobilize the mass to put those crony politicians out of office and those crony capitalists in jail but blindly ask the country to tax the rich indiscriminately seem to be shooting blank and will not get anywhere. It also seems rather unfair. If those brave OWS folks have the guts, why don’t they simply stand up, shout out loud and name those cronies that have brought our country’s economy to its knees so that there could be a fair trial to bring them to justice?

Our country’s problems are the abusers, i.e. the crony capitalists and politicians that abused the capitalism system, not capitalism itself.

So if there are innovative ways (e.g. FARJHO and SwapRent) created by organizations like PeoplesAlly Foundation that common people on Main Street could finally get to bring the housing finance business and hence the money back to Main Street and let Wall Street cronies become the losers in a fair competition under the free market system, why wouldn’t that be a better choice? It did not happen before due to the intellectual power that Wall Street had long held for them to hold our nation hostage. Wall Street always seem to have the money power and political power to suck even more talents to feed on their own success. That is the situation that needs to be changed, through competition, not revolution!

Why can’t we try to bring the brainy power from Wall Street back to Main Street and have them work for common people on Main Street? If we could deploy these new equity sharing based housing finance innovations of FARJHO and SwapRent provided by PeoplesAlly Foundation through the credit union industry and the local community banks to compete directly with Wall Street with their dysfunctional mortgage securitizations system and their loan shark culture to beat the hell out of them, wouldn’t that be a more glorious battle to fight for?

If protesting could do anything for the OWS folks why don’t they focus on rallying the political power to make sure Main Street could have a level playing field to compete intelligently with Wall Street in their own games of finance in order to bring the housing finance business back into their own hands and manage it intelligently to create wealth for themselves on Main Street?

As I said before, the OWS folks may be able to occupy themselves with many more new jobs created by these new equity sharing FARJHO and SwapRent related business opportunities and in the process, they could also get themselves much more decent and comfortable shelters on Main Street through FARJHO and SwapRent than simply sleeping in cramp tents in Zuccotti Park or other city squares.

1120 2011 Discussions and feedback from the OWS folks in early October

Over a month ago out of curiosity, I had my first encounter with the Occupy Wall Street folks on-line. Although the majority of them seemed to be quite hostile to anyone who do not share their extreme left-wing oriented views, there were a few others that did set themselves apart from the madding crowd by showing some intellectual capability.

Now that they have been kicked out from occupying Zuccotti Park, I think they clearly need some intellectual leadership in setting some clear actionable goals in an OWS 2.0 movement effort next. Trying to solicit sympathy alone will most likely get them no where and offer really nothing to remove the crony establishments out of our system.

As far as our recommendation of actionable goals goes, how about trying to bring housing finance from the crony hands of Wall Street back to the common people on Main Street? That will immediately create many jobs that they could occupy themselves with, let alone getting a decent shelter for themselves, back on Main Street.

For a detailed plan, here again is the link to our public response officially submitted to FHFA, the regulator of the Fannie and Freddie, from PeoplesAlly Foundation in early September. http://www.box.net/shared/hpfqqajd1aremco716lr

Here below are some excerpts of our blog post exchanges on their site that I would like to give them an equal chance to voice their views to readers of our site.

============
Oh, I see. PAF makes the mistake of living in utopian-capitalism-fairy-land, and judging others from atop the throne in his ivory tower there – all the while just dividing himself from the common ground and letting himself be conquered by oligarchs who would laugh at him behind his back …

My short message to all the Mises / Libertarian crowd:

I know that the current system is not the “capitalism” you regard religiously as near-utopia. But how in the hell do you not realize that the real world that people are living in today could not be brought to your free-market utopia for many, many, many years? How do you not realize that the money powers will not ever give you your utopia? This system is a one-way ticket to permanent, institutionalized, oligarchical collectivism. Oligarchy for the elites, collectivism for the masses.

Free-marketeers: you will be disenfranchised in the near future the way this system is going. Your idiocy is useful in think tanks and editorial pages when it comes to encouraging or justifying neoliberal economic globalization, or the latest privatization scheme, but your pesky idealism and your essential anti-authoritarianism leaves little room for you in the future of real capitalism – the capitalism of the real world. You need to realize that you are part of the 99.9% too, and you have to act on common ground with the rest of us now before we are divided and conquered into oblivion.

The unrealistic progressives are in the same boat as you are, and if you won’t help them now, they won’t be able to help you in the near future when Big Brother starts coming to oppress you, you unrealistic libertarian. This is about putting the brakes on a runaway capitalist machine heading for total fascism.

Why are you so paranoid that the Occupy Wall Street movement is more dangerous than the status quo? I too have grave reservations about what may come of nationalizations. The solution must be to come to the table and stand up against any tyranny that may come from any socialism that we enact to break the power of the big banks and the modern big politicos.

We don’t want to become the tyranny we despise. We don’t want to create a worse system. But the system right now is selling us out, totally abandoning us, and it will abandon you too. You won’t get your utopian free market capitalism from the status quo, ever. Just hold onto your highest ideals of liberty, opportunity, and justice and come to the table with us, and demand an end to the political bribery system, and an end to the power of the massive money-lending institutions known as the big banks and the Federal Reserve.
…………….

Okay, I checked out your website for the first time.

I see you are pitching a new way of home-ownership. By all means, continue your business and continue trying to convince people who have jobs or savings that your business is a better way for them to own a home.

Your system, which pretends that the dollar won’t collapse, and pretends that “equity” isn’t just debt-based dollar ponzi speculation, is woefully inadequate to re-empower the people. As long as money only comes from debt, the banking money cartel will be the true government of governments and of corporations.

The “free market” is predicated in large part upon rational individuals using their money, their savings, or their capital to make free economy. It requires a fair and just system of law. But our very system of money is too far corrupted at this point to pretend we can use a free market to save ourselves. Likewise with our system of law.
………………..

But I do respect your attempts to engineer something more fair for the common, Main Street people. Maybe your ideas will come into greater utility after we break up the money cartel and the Federal Reserve System.

1028 2011 Don’t let the 1% left wing opportunists ruin the good cause of the Occupy WS protesters supported by us 99% Main Street capitalists

One thing that has been very hard for many people to figure out is that what the Occupy Wall Street protesters want. The answer could be very simple as nobody really knows what they want and the reason why nobody really knows what they want is that nobody really knows who could be the legitimate voice to represent the entire OWS protesters. You would get a very different answer every time you bump into one of them.

Squeaky wheels either get some oil or they get ear plug treatments. Without knowing exactly where the squeaky sound comes from, it seems most people just put on their ear plugs. I wonder why this could be an advantage for the OWS protestors that some of the OWS protestors have been trying to tout.

Without some specific goals and/or executable methods, the movement could potentially render itself to the exploitation by the extreme opportunists for a short cut ideological change. Somebody may have to come up with a way to organize them soon in order to rid the movement of these potential harmful abuses by the destructive extremists. Otherwise squeaky wheels may soon become flat tires that could paralyze our country’s economy.

Other economic pundits have predicted that this Occupy Wall Street movement might run out of steam before it gets to achieve anything significant. Personally I am not sure about it as most likely these people who made those comments did so right after they returned back from a shopping trip or from a business lunch in an expensive restaurant. While they got their living necessity fulfilled on schedule, the protestors’ situation has not change and would not change in the foreseeable future. It does not seem that the protestors would stop until they get what they need, let alone what they want, when they figure out what it is later. That sounds like a perfect hot bed for the left wing extremists.

The OWS protestors could have started out with a good cause to fight against the inequality from the abuses and abusers in our capitalistic society but if nothing drastic is done to fix the incompetent government leadership in DC and the crony establishments on Wall Street soon to correct the situations, something bad to our country would very likely evolve from here.

What PeoplesAlly Foundation’s efforts aim for is trying to provide the disadvantaged working class people in our capitalistic economic society some additional free market based choices specifically created for them to stand up and unite to fix the faulty and abused system before they get to resort to toggling between the conventional ideological switches.

There could indeed be many other new free market based alternatives brought about from new innovations such as the new equity sharing based home ownership structure of FARJHO, the new peer-to-peer cash flow sharing based housing finance system of SwapRent and the new foreign exchange rate pegging system of TARELV which could bring the economic and political power from the crony hands of Wall Street back to the common people on Main Street. Innovations on our economic policy management systems that is, not the conventional technological gadget inventions that people would normally associate the word “innovation” with.

With these new innovations on economic systems and policy management tools, disadvantaged working class people could finally get to try some new free market alternatives designed for them for the first time in order to fight for and gain equality against the privileged minorities on Wall Street and DC rather than simply giving up on capitalism and resorting to doing the futile historical toggling between capitalism and socialism/communism again.
