Do as I Say, Not as I Do

Eric Cantor Delays Key Legislation

Some people say Eric Cantor wants to hold onto the keys to the treasure chest just a little longer – if not indefinitely.  By not allowing a vote on the Stock Act, introduced by Democrats Louise Slaughter and Tim Walz, he is allowing the congress to continue their self-legalized insider trading.  This bill is an effort to deal with the obvious conflict of interest issue by increasing disclosure, in an effort to ensure legislators cannot benefit from inside information.   As it stands, congress members and their staff can legally benefit from non- public information learned while doing their jobs.  Cha-Ching!  This explains why many go to congress members of the 99%, and leave members of the 1.

We’re Number 1!

    Los Angeles does it Again!

No, I’m not talking basketball.  No, not hockey, soccer, football, baseball or any other sport.  I’m talking about something important.  Something that will affect your future as well as that of your children and grandchildren.

An organization called Move to Amend (.org) started a petition to amend the U.S. Constitution.  The goal is to establish the obvious: corporations are not people (Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission; the Supreme Court decision that allows anonymous, unlimited  purchase [money=speech] of the U.S. political process, and therefore, the United States government).  L.A. City Councilman Eric Garcetti heard of the Occupy Wall Street-inspired petition, liked the idea, and drafted a resolution.    It states: only living persons, not corporations are endowed with constitutional rights and that money is not the same as free speech.

The Los Angles City Council voted on the resolution yesterday at 10:00 am.  As you may have guessed by now, it passed unanimously!  Los Angeles became the first major city in the United States to call for an end to all corporate constitutional person-hood.  Councilman Garcetti said: ” We’re very proud to come together and send a message, but more than that, this becomes the official position of the City of Los Angeles.  We will officially lobby for this. I also chair a group which oversees all the Democratic mayors and council members in the country and we’re going to share this with all our 3,000 members and we hope to see this start here in the west and sweep the nation until one day we do have a constitutional amendment which will return the power to the people.”

Bravo L.A.!  Once again the trend setter. Who would have thought we would ever need a resolution like this, to castrate the judicial activism of the shady majority on the Supreme Court?

Lazy, Shiftless …

Blacks Need to Get a Job!

Once again, African Americans prove to be the laziest demographic in the United States.  An obvious lack of resourcefulness, ambition, intellect, and drive has again placed the group at the top of the unemployment list:

African American -15.5%  Hispanic -11.4% National Average – 8.6%  European American -7.6%  Asian – 6.5%.

What is it with these people that make them so slothful, so willing to avoid work but instead look for government handouts?  I mean, the numbers don’t lie right?  There couldn’t be any other reason that Blacks in America are the “last ones hired and first ones fired”, right?

Next Step: Occupy Politics

The Occupy Wall Street movement, and all the other Occupy movements inspired by it, have had incredible  success in changing the political conversation both here in the United States and abroad.  Unfortunately, we Americans are a fickle bunch.  The movement may be losing it’s romance in the eyes of the general populous.  It is time for a change in tactics.  It is time to “Occupy Cyberspace”.

This is a call for all members and true believers in the  Occupy movement to come together in one location.  We need a definitive number  to represent the strength of the movement.  We need to form a unifying body to represent all of our voices, our desires to make the United States of America great again; to balance the playing field; to secure a promising future for our children and grandchildren:  the United Occupy Party!

Show your support!  Goto:  Change.org and sign the petition.  We can do this, one signature at time!   – United we stand, divided we crawl.

On Veterans’ Day…

Occupy Los Angeles Continues the Fight

Supporters of the OWS-Los Angeles movement made their presence known on Friday.  Out in force, they marched enthusiastically from City Hall to the financial district to once again highlight their cause; to bring scrutiny to the inequities of the financial system.  The system, who through its corporate greed and lust for perpetual profit, crashed the entire world economy and destroyed the American middle class.

Contrary to Right wing talking points, the residents of Occupy Los Angeles were wonderful people. There were people from different walks of life, different ages, races, and ideologies, but they were all there under the same umbrella, with the same desire in their hearts: to make America strong again.  To make America again the place where our children and grandchildren have the opportunity for an excellent education and a promising  future.

Don’t Feed the Parasite

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Bank of America Halts Plans to Charge Debit Card Users $5/Month

     Bank of America has realized it’s error in charging it’s customers $5/month to use it’s debit cards –   telling us about it!   Don’t be fooled people.   Keep your eye on your statements… – they will find other ways to take your money.

     Until I realized that I was the host and Bank of America was the parasite, I too was a customer (they make really great commercials).  Tired of being “nickel and dimed” to death, I took my money to another institution – Wells Fargo (did I mention this was years ago?).

   Today I do business with my local Credit Union and am quite happy with their service.  Our relationship is a symbiotic one.  Knowledge is power people.  Big banks are profit driven, credit unions are people driven. For me, the choice was easy.  Until they change from Bank of America to Bank for America, I will not do business with them.

     How about you?    Are you still… feeding the parasite?
