JOIN W.E.R.C Today ! (tags)
In recent months, we have witnessed billions of dollars pumped into the financial institutions WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED. Reckless behavior and greed have been graced with the most extravagant rewards, allowing the rich to get even richer. After receiving their bailout, A.I.G. executives resumed their plans for a retreat at a lavish resort. Meanwhile, foreclosures have risen, unemployment has soared, and misery has spread with virtually nothing being done for the millions of workers suffering from these afflictions. We cannot sit back and simply hope that things will get better. The financial executives have organized themselves and lobbied for bailouts. We must now do the same. We must organize ourselves and mount a campaign, insisting that government programs benefit the majority of the population first and foremost, not the super wealthy small minority.

Free by DNA after 23 years in jail (tags)
WOW!!!!! Missouri has a law that will give the man up to $36,500 in compensation from the state for each year he was wrongly incarcerated if he doesnt sue. WOW, oh WOW! That's a measly $100 for each day you were jailed, or $4.16 for each hour you were jailed. Hell you don't even the federal min wage of $5.15 an hour, much less get paid time and a half for each hour over 40 hours in a week you were jailed for. If the state of Missouri was going to be fair and pay the people falsely jailed the federal min wage for $5.15 for the first 40 hours and time and a half for the rest of the 168 hours in a week the should pay the person $170 a day instead of a measly $100 a day. And thats at min wage. Hell I would not be willing to falsely go to prison for 23 years and when I got out accept min wage for the damages done to me.

I Was Arrested but the Real Crime is the Corporate Hijacking of Our Democracy (tags)
Every time I engage in non-violent civil disobedience against an oppressive government, I revel in the power that we the people actually have. If more people engaged in civil disobedience more often, we would change the oppressive power structure much more quickly. I have been charged with trespassing on private property and the failure to obey a reasonable order by the police. But you and I know that the real crime is the corporate hijacking of our democracy.
That these issues I keep hearing about--of the increased use of police and military force in this country--are real. They're not happening in the future; they're happening today.
