My unemployment benefits are paid to me now on a Bank of America debit card. Isn't this new debit card fee just another way for banks to take advantage of us?

Or if you want to go directly to the petitions: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions

Once you get to the White House's site, you need to click on "View Recent Petitions" under the big yellow circle. After that, the process is a bit muddled. The names of the petitions' authors are not given, and I don't know what category Marilyn's is under. But any petition you like is worth signing. There are only 111 there right now, so it looks like people are understanding that it's better to sign an existing petition than to create a new petition that's similiar to an existing petition, which could split the pool of signatories.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
