I believe the occupy movement will only grow and continue to work at other levels. I hope protesters who get charged with felonies will fight them, since it takes away their right to vote, and feeds some of the very issues they're fighting that target minorities and such.

On another topic..here's a thought..let's take the radical muslems and the radical islama-phobes....put them all on an island with their guns and let them fight it out...away from the more universally minded and tolerant. My personal view is that real faith, no matter what that faith may be, stands on its own, is stronger than, and has nothing to do with extreme attitudes or actions on either side.

I have a game changer idea!...how about FSTV give 15 minutes to each cadidate each night one at a time, ...that means all the candidates, and all the parties, each one with 15 minutes to tell us what they have done that quaifies them for the job, what they will do if elected, and how they will do it.

One candidate per night, great draw for viewer's! and it would assist in removing money from the election, WE the people could see, and hear each candidate speak, and then...the next round, have them answer questions from the viewers live, no notes! 15 minutes, and answers must be less than 30 seconds!... then the finale one week, before the election, have facts and statements checked for the truth on everything we've heard them say, then...we can decide who to vote for, but the big problem is having another country (Spain) count the votes in this election,this must be against the Constiution, why not go back to paper votes that are counted by the people. Why vote if you can't trust the votes being counted correctly.??

Activism Works!

When he was elected, President Obama told us to push him. Well, it looks like we may have pushed hard enough when it comes to the Keystone XL pipeline.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
