WHY IS IT EASIER TO BELIEVE
THAT 150,000,000 AMERICANS

ARE BEING LAZY

RATHER THAN

400 AMERICANS
ARE BEING GREEDY?

What kind of country do we want America to BE?
Or to Become again? 

Opportunity and the American Dream" for ALL?

Or just the FEW?

Google or Bing the following:
    "400 Billionaires own more of America than 150 Million Americans who own the LEAST"


     
And you'll find the following among many other facts available..
Billionaires are too expensive for any Economy to Support.. and completely Contrary to the Very Idea of Democracy..

October 15, 2012 | 8:34 a.m
The late-night hosts focused on Vice President Joe Biden's smirking and persistent interruptions,
 and Rep. Paul Ryan's fibs during the debate. Davide Letterman took notice of both Biden's and
Ryan's workout routine's, and Jimmy Fallon made sure that we did not forget that the next
presidential debate is right around the corner.

Let's not forget what "Capitalists" have tried to do to America when they controlled both Houses of Congress AND the White House..

Administration officials appeared before the Senate Armed
Services Committee Thursday
to defend giving Dubai a role in [CONTROLLING!] American ports.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Published: February 24, 2006
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23 — The Dubai company at the center of a
political furor over its plans to take over some terminal operations
 at six American ports said Thursday night that it
planned to close the deal next week, but that it
would "not exercise control" over its new operations
in the United States while the Bush administration
tried to calm opposition in Congress.

Occupy America needs your help w/changing
political dynamics in the U.S.A.
An Independent VOTER'S Organization..
  just ($3/month)

to make "Money in Politics"

COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT..    IMMEDIATELY.

by making Instant RECALL of Any Politician.. EASY.

Hundreds. Or Thousands of Voter Organizations.

Whatever citizens find most responsive to their needs.


       
As to issues, there are so many.. we've been spending our time trying to focus interest on the root causes..

Anti-Nepotism, THE HISTORIC CULTURAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL PREVIOUS CIVILIZATIONS AND AMERICA, which made our "GRAND SOCIAL EXPERIMENT" POSSIBLE. 

People WANT to give wealth and power to their KIDS.  Whether they deserve it or not.

Whether they understand how to use it without destroying civilization or not.

Because it FEELS Good.

Nepotism was allowed to
creep back into American Social acceptance by consolidation of all Media companies under umbrella ownership of just Five, (now six..) corporations..
with an incestuous mix of Board Membership that bound Together.. a Network of All OTHER Boards of nearly all Fortune 500 Corporations..

And
, due to "Old Money" peer pressure from their Friends and Social Acquaintances.., led first to eliminating all product complaints from broadcast or print news.. then to seemingly "harmless" removal of anti-nepotism messages..  which then led inexorably to Fortune 500 Companies packing management with friends & relatives rather than with Professionals, ie: "the best person for the job".



President Reagan allowed the repeal of the Fairness Doctrine which took away the REASON Liars hadn't been paying to broadcast Lies or deception of any kind.. as is their right.. as part of Protected Free Speech.. which then led to the Public slowly pulling away from TRUSTING Broadcast News because they thought the constant contradictions they saw or heard were due to their OWN
Inability to Understand the Issues of the day..

Even the short list goes on and on like a moebius strip.

We need to Break UP the Corporations.. in order to create Millions of Jobs.. The Sales of all the thousands of Subsidiary Companies.. purchases which were only allowed due to bribed incremental changes to our Laws..

will ALSO create
badly needed Tax revenue to pay the massive debts run up by "Borrow & SPEND" Billionaires run amok.. and it may be possible to have the Federal Government guarantee Loans to Employees for said purchases.. making Tens of Millions of citizens, OWNERS.. as the GOP has always claimed as a goal.



100 Miles of the Platt River dried up" Mississippi River is drying up..

Global Food shortages, Crop destruction..
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/world/globalfoodcrisis/

The Corporations were able to use our Government to save THEM from their Mistakes, why shouldn't the PUBLIC be able to use our Government to help us ALL become Owners of the Companies we WORK in?

We need to LOCK OUT "U.S." Corporations from the U.S. Markets when they don't employ Americans and/or PAY TAXES. The Markets belong to the U.S. PUBLIC.  CONSUMERS.  CITIZENS.  As in "We the PEOPLE".

We need to "OverBalance" our Trade with other nations for at least five years.. in order to recover some of the wealth we've hemorrhaged into the World..
(requiring Other Countries to Buy More from US than WE BUY from THEM..) and THEN settle for simple Balancing of Trade.. having reset U.S. currency to a more stable and valuable place on the World Market..  sometime soon before the Global Market collapses entirely due to a poor understanding of what's happening and why.

But it ALL starts with
the nitty gritty creation of an organization that can actually RECALL Obstructive Members of Congress when its been proven to the Membership and the Public why they should be.

We need to use the Internet now, to Become the Actual Congress of these United States.. with our Members of Congress closely watched to DO what we've all decided should be done.

As advertised.. we ran out of money here and so
I've had to move out of the apartment I couldn't
 afford while unemployed.. back into my possibly
 soon to be foreclosed upon home         
with my ex-wife.       Charming.        
    
As "happy" as I am to have a place, with a roof,
 to go to.. I can't say there aren't any

Here is the first video of that adventure,

If Republicans (and yes, some Democrats & Independents..) weren't bribed to literally..
destroy the U.S.A.
and everything it stands for.. WHY.. would they still be manufacturing obviously false arguments to defend their CONTINUED ACTIONS to further weaken our Nation?

As well as creating "extra profit", "corporate welfare" Subsidies.. for
those willing to Pollute our Environment and
poison our ground water?
"Fracking" must STOP,
because ground water flows EVERYWHERE.. Look here..)



Before wading too deeply into the swamp of outrageous Issues currently confounding
the efforts of 95% of U.S. Citizens struggling against the nearly invisible
limits designed to stop them from succeeding in life..

by "Born Rich" people who managed to corrupt the U.S. Congress in order to
secure their Stranglehold on Success in America..

Remember this one, Most Important, Fact..

NONE of these Issues could have occurred prior to


Corporate America being Allowed to BUY UP

and MUZZLE

ALL Fourteen THOUSAND Media Companies that USED to

comprise our "Free Press" News Industry. 

From Newspapers to Magazines to TV and Radio Stations.

The slowly unfolding Recession and then Economic Collapse in 2008
 could not have Occurred

if this "Capitalist" Effort at DeRegulation and OffShoring U.S. Jobs..

had been stopped.  By making THEM FAMOUS for it..

................................................

While I disagree with the "OccupyMarines" (and Anonymous Gang) claim that their style of "decentralized" Leadership will provide all that is necessary to effect change in America, the following video is a good start on documenting the recent "streetside" of the Movement, important Events along the way and thoughts on what is important to the structure of any Democracy. -Greg



Here at
http://occupyarrests.moonfruit.com/
you'll find a serious effort at documenting almost 6,000 ARRESTS of PEACEFUL PROTESTERS right here in America.. the "Land of the FREE" where such protesting has been SAID to be a
RIGHT.. one that millions of people BLED for..


We NEED one paycheck family lifestyles again


with plenty of "Liberal" paid Vacation/Holiday Time

and money left "over" for Savings and Retirement..

and a STOP to all the Media Propaganda about how
these things can't be afforded by Companies paying Foreign
Slave Labor while still selling Products to AMERICANS...

We NEED affordable Health Care.

And
affordable college tuition..
 

and
public schools that can actually teach kids how to be ready
for college or trade schools.

And
, at last count.. about Thirty MILLION GOOD PAYING JOBS..

Jobs that support   CONSUMERS   FOR OUR ECONOMY..




To GET there..

We NEED a "Voter's Cooperative"   (or "Block" or "Union")



Nothing will be ABLE to Improve
in the U.S.

politically..

while our Members of Congress feel SECURE


from IMMEDIATE Recall.


Currently they are, functionally, "required" to spend

more than HALF of Every Day in Office
at Fundraisers
for THEIR NEXT CAMPAIGN..


(at an average $170,000.00 per year at FULL (not half) Salary..)

 because that's how our badly broken political campaigning system
WORKS right now. 


No Money for Air Time & No Voter can HEAR YOU..

with Wealthy Donors threatening
not only to withhold

their Donations if their Corrupt "NEEDS" aren't met..


but ALSO threatening to Locate and FUND


political RIVALS in their next Election Season.



WE HAVE TO MAKE THAT "NEXT" Election IRRELEVANT..

BY MAKING THEM SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE RECALL
.



AFTER THAT.. FOREVERMORE..


ALL POLITICIANS MUST WORRY
MORE


ABOUT ORGANIZED, PROFESSIONAL..


VOTER'S COOPERATIVES


THAN WEALTHY CAMPAIGN DONORS..


BECAUSE
VOTER'S COOPERATIVES CAN "HURT" CANDIDATES


JUST AS MUCH AS


THEY CAN HELP THEM POLITICALLY.



A Voter's Cooperative that can Recall Senators or Congressmen

within a matter of WEEKS..
WILL make "Money in Politics"


IRRELEVANT..   FROM THEN ON.  


Its a "Game Changing" Concept.



No one in Congress can "relax" & just satisfy her
Wealthy Donors when


they can be Hauled OUT OF OFFICE in a


Matter of WEEKS by angry, Coordinated Voter Action.



HIRE US TO DO THIS FOR YOU, OR

FIND PEOPLE YOU TRUST TO

OPERATE SUCH "VOTER COOPERATIVES".


PEOPLE WITH THE SKILLS AND DESIRE TO CREATE

A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION.


THEN SUPPORT THEM

WITH SMALL REGULAR DONATIONS

AND CONCISE DISCUSSION OF ISSUES THAT MATTER TO YOU

IN THEIR DISCUSSION FORUMS.



IF THAT'S DONE,

NOT ONLY CAN AMERICAN DEMOCRACY BE REPAIRED

IT CAN BE  
IMPROVED

BEYOND WHERE ITS EVER BEEN BEFORE!

The Outrageous issue of the Moment.. is to question just WHY it is that our
Congress AND PRESIDENT OBAMA..  feels we need NEW
expanded powers for our Military..
in spite of the
objections from our
Secretaries of Defense and State, Head of the FBI and
Leaders of our Intelligence Agencies..

And WHY was there OverWhelming & BI-Partisan SUPPORT FOR THIS Travesty?

In 2003, I said that Offshoring Jobs would collapse the U.S. Economy, because any Company that was allowed to do that.. (public opinion could have stopped it immediately, we didn't have to go on buying their products..) would force all others in that Industry to follow suit.

At the same time, my second prediction that this would also cause
the
Identity Theft problem
to
explode
..
uncovered the fact that the Head of the FTC's "Bureau of Consumer Protection"
had been Lying to Congress in an effort
to suppress the fact that
[it] already HAD..
9.91 MILLION incidents in 2002, NOT just 700,000..  More...


(Actual Practice of "Free Enterprise" & "Leveraged Buyouts" from a Capitalist here..)

And we stated that the end result would be that Companies would remove all power from Governments EVERYWHERE as THEY decided which populations would WORK or NOT.
Evidence is provided here and on the indicated pages.

So, now that you may have a reason to read further..


Welcome to where the canaries roost.

 


Or, some of them at least.
And I hope many more will begin visiting far more often with their input. 



If you're actively protesting in the streets already,
thinking of it, or only wish that you Could..

be sure to see the buttons at the Left of this Page to visit
the "Occupy America Demands" Page. 
Tea Partiers and the rest of the 99% are welcome too. 
For that matter, there are those of the 1% like Warren Buffett who are also welcome
to join our efforts, as outlined there.


Let's use this Site to Organize our Ideas in the "Discuss!" Forum and then launch our concerted actions to break the deadlock in Washington, D.C.

If we can (finally!) reliably mobilize millions of Voters to act Simply, but Together, Its Not as Hard as You Might Think..  The Conservative Lobbyist, Grover Norquist, is controlling Congress right now.. by Threatening to end GOP "Conservative"  Careers if they Raise Taxes on the 1%.  But raising them on average Americans is just fine.  More...
 
We say Canaries, because that's the unofficial  nickname we've come up with for what we

 used to call reporters, journalists, authors of all kinds.. and everyone else who spent their
time investigating the mysteries of the day and then actually sharing with us, the public,
their factually inspired opinions on what was going on in the world..  
that we should be paying attention to..  Assuming, that is, that we want
to actually be citizens who have a right to complain
about the way our society operates.

Or don't.



ReSetting America back to a One Paycheck per Family,

Future Citizens..

needed
to COMPETE with the BILLION Member Gene Pools of
our Economic Rivals in a

Global Competition that may not be fully resolved with even
the
Strictest
Commitment to
a Negotiated Balancing of FAIR Trade w/non-compete Agreements..



Back before the Too Big To Fail Corporations were allowed to buy up all newspapers, magazines, radio and TV stations in order to stop all of the annoying complaints about products that were overpriced, generally bad.. or downright dangerous..  [Who owns all the Media?]  so that they could then fire all of the people who wouldn't just shut up about profit destroying complaints.. we used to have REAL News that we could base our discussions and even personal decisions upon.  A common shared framework of understanding.. so that we "were all on the same page" etc.



Just ONE of our many problems that were BUILT for us by
this generation of "Capitalists"
was an EXPLOSION of U.S. Dollar Currency in the World.

We NOW have MORE $$than our current
crop of "Job Creator" "Entrepreneurs"
can come up with OPPORTUNITIES FOR..

Think about that and what it means for us all..
beyond just a LACK of Interest
being offered
to Anyone for SAVING any money..

No more "Magic of Compound Interest" parables being offered to
the common person... as Rungs in the Ladder to
the "American Dream"





(And.. How much LONGER do we want to put OFF solving the Asteroid problem?  When we're LOOKING for things to EMPLOY people at..  Repair Highways, Bridges, Sea & Airports..
and/or Inspire ALL populations of the WORLD to Work Together

While it can PAY for Itself.. WHILE doing something we can SEE needs DOING.

We rarely have a feeling that we can trust the twisted "facts" broadcast to us, although at least, now, most of us understand that it isn't a personal inability to comprehend plain English anymore..





"Canaries" because, just as in the Mines.. its only when  Credible.. 
Journalists and Reporters are making their "controversial" music that we
can be reasonably certain that our democracy is healthy
and still self repairing..




"Power Hungry: Reinventing the U.S. Electrical Grid"



A condition that most of us realized was gone here in the United States.. when
Fox "News" led all other broadcast "news" networks in chanting how sparklingly bright! the U.S. Economy was..   
right up until it
crashed.



Anyway.  Almost 8 years ago now, we discovered a way to spread factual  news to people everywhere in spite of  Big "Business Leader" attempts to stifle such talk.. so that those with the ability to do something positive would have the information they needed, in order to help everyone.  (An idea that isn't contrary to any perceived NEED of Capitalism, by the way, no matter what you hear..)










Single, Publicly Addressed Emails to hundreds of addresses simultaneously.. which were then forwarded in waves, by brave readers.. to an ever expanding wave of others. 

Similar to Twitter communications these days,
but we did it FIRST.

Magic has happened here which can be carried on by any of us.







(But for those who decide to become a spokesperson.. be painfully honest, even Brutal.. in regard to all parties or Issues concerned or be prepared for time wasting criticism.. or worse, simple dismissal of your message by those who invest their time in reading it. The public is in a very unhealthy place with regard to "broadcast" news.. and their willingness to modify their thinking due to anything they're "told". Brutal but fair truth telling is the only medicine possible for systemic healing.)




We discuss many things and then send out our emails,
and things just.. change.



It really doesn't matter if you believe its all just coincidence.. unless you've never exercised a personal superstition in the Hope that it will matter..






Read on, examine the (sometimes oblique..) "evidence" of coincidental improvement provided.. and
you'll see what we mean.  Wherever possible, the original text of the emails have been turned
into "jumptext" items linking to articles about Events that seem to have been actions by our many
readers.. from what credible sources we can find.  I wish the Page "buttons" had some capability for differentiation (Color or Bold etc) but
I'll add color to the page text at the top of those pages we've had time to work on as a help.
  For those who notice a "coincidentally suspicious" event, please feel free to send a link to my email address for inclusion and a special mention.

Again.. welcome!
