Alameda Central Labor Council endorses Nov 2

Sisters & Brothers, Excitement is continuing to build nationally and worldwide for the “Occupy Movement”! Workers, students, unemployed, homeless, seniors, those who have lost their homes to foreclosures and those who have lost their jobs — the 99% — are standing up and fighting back against the 1%! We are experiencing the results of a failed economy and inability of the richest nation in the world to provide for the 99%. We know that the 1% is only getting greedier and richer. But, things are changing and this movement is … Continued

A Parent’s Reflection on Occupy Oakland

This was posted today on my blog Seattle Education. You might be wondering why I am posting so much about the Occupy Movement. It’s because of the transference of wealth from the hands of the many to the pockets of a few that our public school systems have been suffering for at least three decades. My first post on the original Seattle Education 2010 blog written in 2009, Where Do We Go From Here?, described in detail what I have observed over my lifetime in terms of education. Now this … Continued

Time Warner Cable: Buying Legislators and Selling Legislation

TIME WARNER CABLE: BUYING LEGISLATORS AND SELLING LEGISLATION Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 45: Communication 1 IronBoltBruce’s Kleptocracy Chronicles for 31 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0045c1) How many examples of greed and corruption must you see before you act? Many Americans think that at the state level a bill becomes law only if it is passed by both House and Senate and signed by the Governor. Not so.

A sick day for all.

Just an idea, but what if everyone called out sick on the same day? We are sick of the corruption going on, and if the people stopped working, the government would stop working. A massive strike. 2556

Anyone interested in proposing a consumer boycott?

I’ve written a proposal for one but haven’t had the time or opportunity to discuss it with many people. The briefest of summaries: consumer spending makes up 70% of economic activity in the U.S. and companies make a huge chunk of their profits during the holiday season. We can hit them really hard by refusing to spend toward big companies at big retailers on holiday-related products (including those simply being pushed during the season). Email me if you’re into the idea, and I can send you a preliminary version of … Continued
