"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
September 17th is the day Occupy Wall Street began. If you look back to occurrences on that day in the history of the United States and the world, it is THEE perfect day for it to have started as so many very important beginnings happened on that particular date. If September 17th history is any indication, we may someday be making it into a national holiday.
It cuts the public out of the decision process of whether or not to allow the Polluting activity and doesn’t even require full information on what the Polluter is going to do.

A BETTER FORM OF THE ELECTORAL PROCESS Updated: March 27, 2009; October 11, 2009; August 13, 2011; October 18, 2011;
October 27, 2011 On the electoral process:
A while ago, Bill O'Reilly embarrassed a liberal commentator by demanding proof about the Koch brothers' ties to the Tea Party, proof she apparently didn't have handy. That got me wondering: Where is the proof? So I started looking for myself and found that there is lots of proof out there (documented on more web sites than I can count), but more importantly, I discovered where the proof actually comes from. Some of it's from leaked memos and emails that reporters track down, but a lot of it simply comes from our friends at the IRS.
Town is sleepy, but we do occupy on Sundays: http://treegrower.org/Occupations/DC%20Occupation.html
Want to help people. Stop by 12 to about 5 Sundays at the city park next to the river.
It's become one of the right wing major talking points, "47% of the people pay no taxes." First of all the statement is misleading on it's face because everyone who buys anything pays taxes, and anyone who owns a home or rents is paying property taxes. Secondly every single person in this country who receives a paycheck in this country pays SSI and medicare. But what do they continue to talk about cutting? The very things that people actually pay for SSI and medicare. Does anyone, even on the right see the lack of logic in what they're insisting on doing.
