Forum Post: ~ Action Alert: Wall Street Greed - Demand Justice

This mornings Action Alerts include a petition to the President, demanding an investigation into Wall Street fraud:

From ProgressivesUnited:

Call on President Obama to investigate Wall Street

Hey,

Wall Street is eager for a sweetheart settlement deal with state attorneys general and the Obama administration that would get them out of being investigated for the misdeeds that led to our financial collapse.

We need to stop that deal -- but we also need President Obama to take the lead and launch the investigation.

I just signed Progressives United and MoveOn's petition to President Obama to order a full federal investigation of potential Wall Street misdeeds today.

For far too long, Wall Street has received a blank check from Washington. They got bailed out after they gambled our economy into a recession, and they lobbied hard to make sure that regulation was too weak to prevent another crash.

So without an investigation, homeowners can't get fair compensation, and Wall Street will have no reason to stop skewing the playing field against the 99%.

It's the president’s choice: He has the power to order this investigation today, and we have the power to pressure him to do it.

Thanks!

And you can Tweet That!

Action Alert:

Why This Is Important

Adding environmental education to The Lorax movie website is important because this is the message of the book and it should be honored. Dr. Seuss wanted people to be inspired by The Lorax to help the environment. Currently, the movie website, trailer, and story summary have no mention of helping our planet! This is a missed opportunity. There are big problems in our natural world and we need more and more people helping out.

. . .

Please know The Lorax has power and that this movie could start a movement of kids helping the planet. The movie website and promotions should do what the book does and help the planet. This is possible with a few simple changes such as adding a “Lorax Tips” button.

Universal, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better, it’s not.” Please consider this line from the book; it is also true for the world.

Sincerely, Mr. Wells’ Fourth Grade Class


And finally, here's a link to The Bernie Buzz where you can find what the Senator has been up to lately, including action to stop the downsizing of the Post Office on CSPAN.

The Bernie Buzz has some other great links from the Senator as well, including this item:

Saving American Democracy

Corporations should not be allowed to spend unlimited, undisclosed sums of money to influence political campaigns. "If you or someone you love is a corporation, do not sign this http://sanders.senate.gov/savingdemocracy," Stephen Colbert tweeted after Bernie was a guest on his show. More than 175,000 people have now signed the petition backing Bernie's constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's infamous ruling two years ago this month.

Right on bro, this needs to happen. Damnit, they prosecuted Martha Stewart who in no way compared to the wall street scum. Have you seen " inside job " by matt damon, http://goo.gl/GDfQl what went on was purely criminal.. The politicians of both parties have helped these people evade accountability and there were many.

[-] 2 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

If you watch that movie, Inside Job, it becomes absolutely clear that the repelican conservatives set about to install

  • conservative activist judges

that is not to say that corruption may not be found on both sides of the aisle, what it says is that repelicans have made corruption a fundamental component of party policy and ideology.

Note carefully the screams from the right regarding Liberal activist judges - and that these cries rose up just as financial deregulation started gaining steam.

the bastards

Hey bro, ive seen inside job. In the movie note how the wall street players were doing, using corporate funds for $1000 to $1600 prostitutes, cocaine parties,etc, using corporate money. The madam of the services said they had around 10,000 clients, most of which used corporate money. The crimes were many and no one gets held accountable. This could only be because both political parties denied the justice system from investigating and charging people for crimes. I see what you see bout the repub's but the democrats have helped this mess with things like free trade, lack of accountability for wall street, etc. Look at congressional insider trading, thats both parties that wants and intend to keep it that way. Even though the repelicans are worse, its both that needs to change to work for the people, not wall street and corporations.

I agree that corruption exists on both sides of the aisle, but only one of them makes that corruption and corporate collusion a matter of party policy and ideology.

Get rid of repelicans and the rest will fold like a cheap suit.

Look Zenhog and Trollbitchboy are jerking each other off. How fucking pathetic. BTW you couldn't be further from the truth. The Demorats have been outpacing the repubs in corruption and corporate collusion by miles. How ignorant you are.

The only change you need is a diaper change because your favorite hobby is Fisting with your butt buddy. How naieve to think BO gives a shit about pissing off one of his favorite payola sources just because some useless eater Occupier is whining about Wall Street greed. I swear you fucks destroyed yur brains with too much Acid. Greed is human behavior that you cant stop of legislate away. Its just not possible. If I handed your dumb ass 5 million bucks to go piss on every OWS protester you see, you wouldn't even hesitate and you would enjoy the hell out of your new found rich greedy life.

We will see . . . I would note that with the Supreme Court decision Citizens United, the President may have had little option but to take the money for advertising purposes.

If enough of us agitate, I am sure that we can prevail on the President not to allow the perception that their contributions were simply protection money. His own reputation is at stake.

I would also point out that Goldman clearly knows which party serves their interests in Congress:

  • Goldman Sachs gave $478,250 to federal candidates in the 05/06 election period through its political action committee - 35% to Democrats and 65% to Republicans. 112

It warms my heart to know that you are desperate enough to spend your time on this site.

[-] 2 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

you are a fool.

this movement is in large measure all about holding people accountable - this nation has incurred debt - debt due to war, debt due to the economic collapse - and you would have us refuse to pay that debt.

you would have us tank the economy even further with such nonsense.

Revenue will be raised to meet our common obligation.

And we will hold those accountable for promoting fiscal policy and economic theory that has proven itself a sham.

The movie Inside Job makes it quite clear: Conservatives set to implement financial deregulation as far back as the late 1970s, and part of that process included the appointment to the Supreme Court

  • Conservative Activist Judges

And it is clear - as that process began to bear fruit, Conservatives began screaming about Liberal Activist Judges, and thus distract the public from their process of Activism toward deregulation.

  • repeliKans are liars

  • repeliKans with their process of deregulation have fucked the American public.

  • repeliKans continue to lie about Global Warming

  • repeliKans will soon reap the harvest they have sown

The people are coming. You can't stop it. You can't avoid it. And in fact, you will benefit.

Unless of course, you get in the way. Then there's just no tellin'.
