Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down…”

Acts of Resistance: What Are You Going To Do On June 14th to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny?Exciting times over here, to say the least! The June 14th Flag Day Rebellion against economic tyranny is growing much stronger and more rapidly than anticipated. As a small part of a decentralized movement, it’s hard to measure the overall impact, but my email inbox is exploding with support and interest. This movement is definitely succeeding in uniting people from all over the political spectrum. Hardcore progressives and libertarians have found common cause. Liberals who are sick of “spineless Democrats.” Conservatives who have had enough of “crony-capitalist and imperial Republicans.” Apolitical people who are sick and tired of living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to get by. The foreclosed upon. The unemployed. People desperately surviving off of food stamps. And especially people who have been impoverished by medical bills. I’ve heard from so many people with horror stories from financial ruin as a result of health problems who are “ready to fight back.” The anger throughout the population is much more intense than even I thought it was.

People who spent their career working on Wall Street are “done sitting idle while the market is rigged in favor of a handful of politically connected global banks and firms.” The people who are taking it upon themselves to take action and spread the word come from all walks of life. Emails have come in from people in the military, veterans, police, firefighters, real estate brokers, lawyers, doctors, nurses, construction workers, accountants, Wal-Mart workers, union members, union haters – they’re all coming together on this. Teachers and students have been strong supporters. College students and recent graduates are feeling completely trapped in debt. Their awareness of their limited opportunities and lack of financial security moving forward is very evident. And, of course, the activists and hacktivists are coming out in force.

For those not up to date, this is what everyone is uniting and rallying around:

This Flag Day, Tuesday June 14th, we will launch a non-violent movement with this list of demands:

* End the campaign finance and lobbying racket
* Break up the Fed & Too Big to Fail banks
* Enforce RICO laws against organized criminal class
* Order Ben Bernanke to step down

Here is the call to action we contributed to the cause, which has been reposted on at least 50 sites now:

Acts of Resistance: What Are You Going To Do On June 14th to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny?

This is a Google map showing some of the public protest locations: http://maps.google.com (Note the first action listed.)

Here’s a brief roundup of what people are saying about the protests, notice the diversity of viewpoints these people represent. I will have a more detailed and focused post featuring many other contributions to this movement within the next few days. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Comedian Lee Camp just released this video to AmpedStatus in support of actions. Lee will be moving his money out of a big bank on Tuesday.

Fight the Banks On June 14th [Warning Explicit Language]

The well-respected Washington’s Blog does an excellent job summing up the call to action:

The Big Banks Have Sold Us Out. Democrats And Republicans Have Sold Us Out. No One Is Defending Our Interests. Our Future Is Going Up In Flames. It’s Time For Us To Stand Up And Defend Ourselves

“… Even though most politicians are totally corrupt, if many millions of Americans poured into the streets… a critical mass would be reached, and the politicians would start changing things in a hurry. As [liberal] PhD economist Dean Baker points out:

‘The elites hate to acknowledge it, but when large numbers of ordinary people are moved to action, it changes the narrow political world where the elites call the shots. A big turnout … can make a real difference.’

Similarly, no matter how completely sold-out to the Wall Street giants D.C. politicians are, they would start paying attention to their real employers – the American people – if we make enough noise. If 3 million Americans all peacefully surrounded the White House and Capitol Hill, holding signs saying ‘We’re Not Leaving Until the Too Big to Fails which Caused the Economic Crisis are Reined In’, things would change pretty fast.

3 million might sound like a lot of people. But many millions of people read popular alternative financial and economic news sites. You are probably one of millions of people who will read this essay (by the time it is published by some of the larger sites).

In other words, it’s not even a question of convincing other people to go. We – those who read alternative financial websites – could do it ourselves.

If millions of us don’t go protest… it’s because we are choosing not to sacrifice a tiny bit in order to change things. The bad guys are only winning because we – the American people – aren’t making enough noise.

Not Now . . .

It is human nature to try to put things off until tomorrow. Tomorrow, when things are easier, we’ll do it… It is easy to despair that it is already too late. Should we whine and give up hope?

Well, about a month before the American Revolutionary War, Patrick Henry said: ‘They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year?’

If not now, when? Like Patrick Henry asked, when will we be stronger? When will the robber barons be weaker?

If we’re going to save America through non-violent protests, now is the time.

Similarly, conservative financial writer Karl Denninger writes today: ‘You – America – You – can fix this tomorrow. Put 500,000 people around The Treasury and The Fed and refuse to leave until Geithner and Bernanke both resign and depart and the FDIC goes through all four of the largest banks, marks their ‘stuff’ to market, and resolves all that are insolvent. Lay peaceful siege, MLK-style.’

How can both liberals and conservatives be calling for the same thing – massive protests against the banking elites and their water-carriers in D.C.?

Because that’s what all Americans want.

While the elites have tried to divide and conquer America into a false left-versus-right dichotomy, all Americans want the rule of law to be enforced.

All Americans want the big boys to be held accountable to the same laws that we have to follow.

All Americans want there to be a level playing field so that the little guy has a chance to compete fairly.

For liberals, remember Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi. For conservatives, this is what Jesus would do: kick the moneychangers out of the temple.

You know it … now act.

We can save America in a week if we follow the call…”

Wall Streeter Mike Krieger stands up in support of June 14th Protests, via Zero Hedge:

“Recent years have proven that things work much better at the local level and we need to start aggressively moving power and sovereignty back to the states and our local communities…. June 14th Protests: I ask people to support this in some way. Whether that means going to a protest, attending a city council meeting, buying silver, or reading the Constitution, the point is please do SOMETHING to exercise your individual sovereignty and resistance to economic and political slavery.”

The Sons of Liberty are in support of the June 14th Actions Against Economic Tyranny:

Leaderless Resistance | Don’t Tread On Me

“With Leaderless Resistance there is no need to actually know your brothers in arms. Through the common cause or rallying cry, we can do much more individually. So this Flag Day, June 14th, I encourage everyone to participate in Operation Empire State Rebellion. I support their efforts because they embrace this spirit of non violent, non compliant, leaderless resistance. More importantly, they are hacking at the root of power, the banking system that enslaves humanity with war and debt. You can do something small or you can do something much more. I have compiled a bunch of examples of non violent leaderless resistance.”

And, of course, let’s not forget the Anonymous video with over 180,000 views on YouTube, not counting tens of thousands of additional views on other video accounts:

A99 Operation Empire State Rebellion – Communication #1

Then there is the Anonymous laced music video featuring the…

Operation Empire State Rebellion Anthem

Here’s our call to action also set to music featuring the one and only Max Keiser:

see also: http://J14.FSS34.COM

Even the famed Economic Hitman John Perkins wrote us in support of this effort.

As I said, this is a diverse decentralized movement and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Much more to come!

There will be a major announcement within the next few days.

Spread the word, the American Summer of Resistance Is Upon Us…

    I always talk to people at work, people everywhere for that matter, about politics and the need to action. Most people at work are sick of hearing me go off. Then yesterday a coworker comes up to me and says, “So, what are you doing for Flag Day?” I said, what do you mean? He then proceeds to floor me by saying he heard that people were taking “patriotic actions against the crooks on Wall Street.”

    For the first time in a few years i thought to myself, Holy Shit! Are the apathetic Americans starting to realize that they can, and desperately need to, do something.

    Perhaps the time has come? Can it be?

  5. EyesWideOpen said:

    This is the way to go. I’ve been resisting for more than a year by buying silver, and will do so again on June 14th. If I can locate a rally in my area I’ll be attending that to.

    March on!!

    MY GAWD!

    THE PHONINESS…THE PURE..UNADULTERATED…BULLSCHEISSE..THE COMPLETE.AND UTTER..IRREFUTABLE….LIE..THE SELF DENIAL AND EVEN..OPEN..DIRECT..”DOUBLE SPEAK”..OF THE ABOVE “ARTICLE/STATEMENT”..IS..SIMPLY…STUNNING.

    YOU PEOPLE..ARE ALMOST UNIVERSALLY..SLAPPING YOURSELVES ON THE BACK..AND…THE REALITY IS:

    NOTHING..LITERALLY..NOT…ONE..THING…HAS:

    “CHANGED”.

    NOT ONE THING IS..”DIFFERENT”.

    THERE IS NO..”MASS MOVEMENT”.

    THERE IS ONLY MASS COWARDICE AND MASSIVELY IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOUR…MASS RATIONALIZATION..AND WORST OF ALL…WORST….OF….ALL:

    “MASS DENIAL”.

    THIS ENTIRE SITUATION IS ACTUALLY…WRITTEN..IN THE CONTEXT OF:

    “IF”.

    “IF YOU ALL MARCH..”

    “IF THE PEOPLE SURROUNDED THE FED AND DEMANDED..”

    “IF EVERYONE JOINS TOGETHER..”

    Y’KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS?

    “LET THEM MARCH ALL THEY WANT..AS LONG AS THEY CONTINUE PAYING TAXES..” — ALEXANDER HAIG.

    UNTIL YOU ACCEPT..THAT THIS IS ABOUT..ONE (1) RESOURCE..AND ONE RESOURCE..ONLY:

    “MONEY”.

    AND UNTIL YOU ACCEPT THAT THOSE IN POWER HAVE LITERALLY…”COMPLETELY CONVINCED THEMSELVES TO THE POINT OF TOTAL BELIEF…THAT YOUR CONTINUED PAYMENT OF YOUR MONEY TO THEM TO USE AS THEY SEE FIT…IS…….TO THEM…TANTAMOUNT TO….APPROVAL. COMPLETE…APPROVAL.”

    UNTIL YOU REALIZE THAT….NOTHING…WHATSOEVER..WILL..”CHANGE”.

    NOTHING.

    IN FACT…THIS IS QUITE EASILY PROVEN.

    LOOK AROUND.

    THERE IS…NOT…ONE…”DIFFERENCE”.

    AND I DO HEREBY CHALLENGE THE “LEADERS” OF THIS FAUX “MOVEMENT” TO SHOW ME…WHERE ONE..ONE..”ACTUAL”..CHANGE HAS TAKEN PLACE.

    IS THE GULF OIL “OFF LIMITS”?

    NOPE!

    IS BP/GE/WALL STREET ETC..ETC..ETC..ET AL…PAYING TAXES ALL OF A SUDDEN?

    NOPE!

    ARE THE “WARS” OVER?

    NOPE!

    ARE UNIONS WINNING..UMM..ANYTHING? (EXCEPTING OF COURSE THE FIRING OF ALL INDEPENDENT CANNABIS GROWERS VIA UNION/FAUX-GRESSIVE PRIVATIZATION.. OOOPS.. SORRY.. ‘LEGALIZATION’.. INSANITY)

    NOPE!

    HAS THEIR BEEN EVEN ONE…VICTORY..FOR:

    ENVIRONMENT?

    CIVIL LIBERTIES?

    LABOR?

    NOPE!

    NOPE!

    NOPE!

    AND BY THE WAY…”MAYBE” DOESN’T CUT IT.

    “WELL..GALL..THE RECALLS IN WISCONSIN..GALL..”

    NOPE!

    NOT YET..AND ALMOST CERTAINLY WILL NOT SUCCEED.

    ETC..

    “MAYBE” DON’T CUT IT!

    WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A “MOVEMENT” REMEMBER?

    FRANKLY..THIS ARTICLE ABOVE..IS PART OF THIS..STUNNING PHENOMENA.

    THE PHENOMENA OF:

    “SUBCONSCIOUS GUILT AT KNOWING THAT TAXES/MONEY IS/ARE THE KEY..AND THAT ONES..’REFUSAL’ TO ACT RESPONSIBLY, TO…TAKE…RESPONSIBILITY FOR ONES OWN MONEY AND ‘HOW’ AND ‘WHERE’ AND ‘FOR WHAT’..IT IS SPENT..IS TANTAMOUNT TO DIRECT…DIRECT.. UNEQUIVOCAL… COMPLICITY.. AND DIRECT.. IRREFUTABLE.. SUPPORT FOR THE VERY POLICIES..PROGRAMS.. LAWS..AND CORRUPTION… THEY CLAIM T SO DESPISE.”

    THAT IS THE “PHENOMENA” THAT IS REPRESENTED..ONCE AGAIN..AND NOW..BASICALLY..DAILY..AS THE FAUX “MOVEMENT” CONTINUES TO ACTUALLY..ACCOMPLISH…LITERALLY..NOTHING. IN FACT…LESS THAN NOTHING..AS THE SUPREME COURT AND THE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT HAVE IN FACT GUTTED..GUTTED..OUR FREEDOMS IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS..AND CONTINUE TO DAILY…WEEKLY…RAZE TO THE GROUND…WHAT IS LEFT OF AUTONOMY AND FREEDOM.

    YOU PEOPLE..ARE IN DENIAL.

    BECAUSE YOU KNOW…YOU…KNOW…THAT THE “WEB” IS POINTLESS AS A VEHICLE OF “CHANGE”.

    IF “TWITTER” WORKED TO INFLUENCE OUTCOMES IN GOVERNMENT OR CORPORATE REALITY…IT WOULD BE ALREADY A DONE DEAL.

    SURELY THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF ‘FACEBOOK USERS”…ARE DEEPLY OPPOSED TO “TORTURE”..RIGHT?

    BUT..IT NOT ONLY CONTINUES..ITS BEING EXPANDED. DAILY.

    HIDDEN AND JUSTIFIED AND AS OF LAST WEEK..EVEN THOSE PERIPHERALLY INVOLVED..ARE “LET FREE”.

    NOPE!

    SORRY.

    THIS ENTIRE “MOVEMENT” IS A LIE!

    BASED ON THE FALLACY THAT “MARCHING” OR “BODIES” IS “ENOUGH”..AND THUS GUILTILY IGNORING AND PATHOLOGICALLY DENYING THE REALITY THAT IT IS ABOUT..100% ABOUT..

    “THE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET..THE MONEY YOU WILLINGLY..DUTIFULLY..OBEDIENTLY… HAND OVER FOR ‘USE’ BY THOSE INTENT..DETERMINED.. LITERALLY….. DETERMINED.. TO USE YOUR MONEY TO DESTROY… YOUR FREEDOM.

    YOU…ARE PAYING!

    THUS YOU…ARE “ACCOMPLISHING” NOTHING BUT CONTINUED DESTRUCTION OF LIBERTY AND ENVIRONMENT AND PEACE.

    YOU PAY? YOU PLAY!

    PERIOD!

    THIS CANNOT BE REBUTTED..ONLY DENIED AND RATIONALIZED.

    GANDHI…SOUTH AFRICA AND MANDELA..GRAPE PICKERS… THEY ALL MADE REAL..CHANGE.

    THEY DID IT..BY FOCUSING ON…… THE MONEY!

    SOUTH AFRICA AND APARTHEID ARE THE MOST MASSIVE EXAMPLES.

    NOW ALMOST UNIVERSALLY IGNORED AND ‘FORGOTTEN INTENTIONALLY’ BY THE GUILTY COWARDS WRITING ‘ARTICLES’ LIKE THE ONE ABOVE.

    THOSE FOLKS BEAT AN ENTRENCHED VICIOUS FIRST OF ITS KIND..”CORPORATE FASCIST” GOVERNMENT..USING:

    THE POWER OF MONEY.

    AND YOU..MIGHT HAVE HELPED..

    REMEMBER THE “BOYCOTTS” OF SOUTH AFRICAN ‘OFFICIAL’ GOODS ETC?

    REMEMBER?

    NO?

    DENIAL IS A STRANGE PHENOMENA.

    IT IS ESPECIALLY GOOD AT CREATING ‘SELECTIVE MEMORY’.

    AS LONG AS THE “MOVEMENT” CONTINUES TO CONSIST OF “MARCHING” AND ‘CLICKTIVISM’…IT WILL BE LITERALLY…A JOKE.

    IT WILL………NEITHER………’CHANGE’…….NOR ‘ACCOMPLISH’….A SINGLE THING.

    IT IS LITERALLY..A “FEEL GOOD LIE”.

    UNTIL YOU PEOPLE CAN SWALLOW YOUR FEAR OF REPRISAL FROM THE IRS AND REFUSE TO PAY.

    UNTIL YOU CAN ACTUALLY “DO WITHOUT” YOUR “CORPORATE PARTNER” SELF SURVEILLANCE DEVICE..OOPS..SORRY..”SMART PHONE”…OR OTHER ENDLESS ‘PRODUCTS”..UNTIL YOU CAN ACTUALLY…ACHIEVE THAT REALITY…YOU ARE NOTHING BUT SELF DECEIVING LIARS…IN TOTAL DENIAL ABOUT THE REALITY:

    ALL THEY WANT FROM YOU..IS MONEY AND THE OBEDIENT AND CONTINUED SUPPLY OF THAT ONE (1) CRITICAL RESOURCE TO THEIR…THEIR…’CAUSE’.

    THAT IS ALL…..A-L-L..THEY WANT.

    AND AS LONG AS YOU GIVE THEM THAT ONE THING…THEY WILL SIMPLY IGNORE EVERY OTHER FORM OF “PROTEST”.

    JUST AS THEY ARE RIGHT..THIS…MINUTE.

    UNTIL AMERICANS “REMEMBER” THAT THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED UPON TAX RESISTANCE..AND THAT IT IS STILL..THE “FAIL SAFE” TO “TRANSITION” FROM DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC TO CORPORATE AUTHORITARIAN STATE…AND THAT THE “SYSTEM’ WA SIN FACT “BUILT” FOR THAT VERY PURPOSE BY THE FOUNDERS…WHO KNEW..THAT CONSOLIDATION OF WEALTH AND POWER..WOULD..TO A MORAL CERTAINTY..EVENTUALLY OCCUR..AND THUS BUILT THE SYSTEM TO BE ABLE TO ‘CONTINUE’ ONLY….ONLY…WITH THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNED…….UNTIL YOU ACCEPT THIS INCONTROVERTIBLE AND IMPOSSIBLE TO REBUT REALITY….AND SIMPLY….REFUSE TO PAY…AND UNITE IN UNION STYLE TAX STRIKE…WITH A LIST OF ‘DEMANDS FOR MANAGEMENT’….UNTIL YOU REALIZE AND RECOGNIZE THIS FACT…YOU ARE SIMPLY IN DENIAL AND ARE NOT….NOT…A ‘MOVEMENT’…BUT RATHER…WEAK AND POINTLESS SELF DECEIVING FOOLS.

    THAT IS YOUR “MOVEMENT”.

    A POINTLESS EXERCISE IN NAIVETE AND TOTAL LACK OF STREET SMARTS.

    LYING TO YOURSELVES AND EVERYONE ELSE.

    HEY…I JUST BET…NO..I’M CERTAIN…THAT THE “AUTHOR” IS CORRECT..I’M CERTAIN HIS..”EMAIL BOX IS FULL OF INTEREST AND SUPPORT..”

    HEY..SUPER-TERRIFIC. THATS REALLY GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON BP/CHEVRON/THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX/U.S. GOVERNMENT/CORPORATE BOARDROOMS ETC..ETC..

    YEAH…AS OPPOSED TO SAY…A STRAIGHT UP “BOYCOTT”.

    OR..GOSH…”REFUSAL TO CONTINUE TO BAIL THEM OUT”.

    NAWWWW…”EMAIL” AND “SUPPORT” AND “INTEREST”..ARE SURE ENOUGH…”MORE OF A THREAT TO THE ENTRENCHED STATUS QUO THAN REFUSAL TO GIVE THEM MONEY!”

    YEAH..YOU JUST KEEP TELLING YOURSELVES THAT.

    AFTER ALL..THATS WHAT THIS IS REALLY ABOUT..”MAKE BELIEVE”.

    MAKE BELIEVE “PROTEST” AND MAKE BELIEVE “CHANGE”.

    “OBAMA STYLE CHANGE”.

    AKA..NO CHANGE AT ALL AND 100X WORSE!

    GREAT “PLAN”!

    YOU PEOPLE..MAKE ME SICK!\

    EITHER ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOU…..YOUR..MONEY.

    TAKE THE “RISK”. UNITE IN TAX PROTEST AND BOYCOTTS..

    OR…LITERALLY…SHUT UP!

    BECAUSE YOUR “WORDS”..BACKED UP BY NOTHING BUT CONTINUED PAYMENT…ARE…AS ONE GREAT TAX PROTESTER PUT IT YEARS AGO:

    “MERE SMOKE OF OPINION..” (H.D. THOREAU)

    YOU PEOPLE…YOU PAY FOR A “PRODUCT”..THEN PRETEND YOUR “PROTESTING” THAT PRODUCT!

    WOW!

    SMART MOVE.

    IF NO ONE STOPPED BUYING TOYOTA AUTOMOBILES..DO YOU REALLY…THINK..THEY WOULD HAVE “VOLUNTARILY RECALLED” THEIR PRODUCT?

    NOPE!

    IT IS THE SAME THING WITH THIS CORPORATE GOVERNMENT.

    AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO BUY THEIR LETHALLY VICIOUS AND DEFECTIVE “PRODUCT”…THEY WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE IT!

    PERIOD!

    THE ONLY OTHER OPTION…..IS DENIAL!

    AND THAT’S……..YOU!

It is nothing more than faux dollars or virtual nonsense! The dollars are not coined nor printed in the tens of trillions of dollars in this country, as of yet, but are emitted as digital keystroke accounting units that are not worth the electrons it takes to emit them into the data of the computer banking systems to account for all the credit being extended – ad naseoum (or however it is spelled)!

    And in addition:

    1. claw back excessive executive compensation from past years in proportion to how big the accounting deficit of the organization is.

    2. Phase out that tax benefit of carrying a loss forward to offset future income.

    Have you looked at tax revenues lately? Taxes collected have fallen off a cliff!! In part, it is our largest corporations who can pay little or no taxes on their current record profits because they get to carry their past mistakes forward to offset current income.

    This is a start but only a start. More effective than not paying taxes (though if dithering about in prison suits you, this is also effective) as the above rant proposes, is to deny the Oligarchs the power they wield against you. Starve the Beast! Buy what you need from second hand stores, from yard sales and farmers markets and otherwise from other individuals vice the Oligarchs. Yes, they buy the RepubliCrats off but they’re using you FRNs to do so.

    I realize this is “decentralized”, but it would be good for the pressure impact of the movement to make sure that Aljazeera is on the contacted media list. I for one have given them a shout.
    During all the demonstrations in the Arab countries and in the anti-bailout demonstrations in Europe, there are signs and placards in English. They have been reaching out to us. Let us reach back with signs in Spanish, Greek, German, and especially Arabic. Trust me; the foreign news agencies DO take notice. It will enliven hope among those people, and scare the hell out of the Fat Cats. If they have any reason to believe that the world’s population is rising amass (decentralized or not), they will be less likely to ignore the issues. So grab a translator and start painting.
    Tomorrow, we are moving our money to a credit union! Go forth and make a mighty noise (and take a lunch).

    The IRS and the laws state our federal taxes are VOLUNTARY, but I didn’t understand what that meant until now. STOP giving W-4 forms to your PRIVATE employers. *** See 26 CFR Sec. 31.3402(p)-1 Voluntary withholding agreements. ***

    “(a) In general. An employee and his employer **may** enter into an agreement under section 3402(b) to provide for the withholding of income tax upon payments of amounts described in paragraph (b)(1) of Sec. 31.3401(a)-3, made after December 31, 1970.”

    This form is available on http://www.scribd.com/doc/2580963/w4t.

    Be sure to inform your employer that they cannot use any info from a terminated W-4, including your SS#. This is the ONLY way to UN-VOLUNTEER for “federal internal” revenue taxes. If you are a state citizen and reside in one of the 50 unified stated, you are still responsible for state taxes on “wages.” Read up on your state’s definition of “wages.”

    They will try to sweat you because they don’t know the laws. Make the laws work FOR you.

    I agree completely. You all call it Economic Tyrany I call it Economic Slavery. This has been going for decades but it is very evident now what has been done to the country. It started with the republicans with their tax cuts to the rich and corporate entities and continues today with Corporate charity. The goal was always the same, to create an olygarchy in America like in any 3rd world country. The super rich and corporate entities dictate how you live by limiting the cash in your pocket, and off course limiting your rights to demand and negotiate like they have done in Wisconsin.

    So you all “Values Voters” this is what you gave up in return for “Save the Babies BS and Prayer in School” It really was you alls ignorance that has brought us where we are today. Some call it very bad trading.
