There is a big difference, in my opinion, between a family taking on a 30 year home mortgage and an investor flipping and refinancing as many houses a possible. I argue that the ability (freedom) to endanger the commons isn't the same as the right to undertake equitable enterprise (regulated commerce), and that promoting opportunity is not the same as leveraging then flipping corporations. Piratical financing doesn't make Mr. Romney an ordinary "businessman" because cheatin' aint "success".

Undocumented Immigrants are Human People, (There is no such thing as an Illegal Alien.)

There is no such thing as an illegal alien. Undocumented Immigrants are Human People too. Most have enough Native American blood to earn the title of half breed. As such, they have even more of a right to be within these borders as you Lilly White Bigots who claim the United States of America as your own sovereign racist territory. Remember, your ancestors gained your claim to this land by trespassing, squatting, lying, cheating, stealing and bullying and war-mongering the red man human people into submission.

There is currently a petition on that site that calls for the end to corporate personhood and repealing citizen's united. There are over 20,000 signatures on that petition. Once there are 25,000 signatures, the President will state his position on the issue. One must create an account on the site, and then use the link below to sign the petition.

One law could change it all

If one law was passed by the people, AND enforced we could bring our nation back to the rightful owners. But it MUST be enforced

Occupy PGA Tour

I am a member of golf's 99%. I play golf, but have not yet made it to the professional level!! I have played the game for over 40 years, but have not really put in the practice time and study to be the best. I also probably do not have the skills to really get there either. However, I now feel that I should be paid by the successful professionals for trying.
