Forum Post: After Voting Today - How about making another statement and in another sense another Vote. Stop in at your mega monster bank and close your accounts - move them to local community banks and credit unions.

The People "CAN" do what the government has so far failed to do. Shrink the Too Big To Fail.

Real honest grassroots action.

[-] 3 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

If the 99% voted and fully understood the issues then we would consistently vote for people like Denis Kucinich and Bernie Sanders. We need other political parties and other choices because the D/R option is barely any choice at all and we need to educate ourselves and switch off the television and MSM.

'Voting' is the last residue of power that we, the people have and I agree with your post and the need for 'Real honest grassroots action'. I live in hope that OWS can be seed for this in future as it has raised issues that have not been touched for many years.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Absolutely love Bernie Denis Jill and the issues they voice and the direction that they push - FOR THE PEOPLE.

The conversation "IS" changing even with MSM information roadblock.

I was so relieved to see the birth of OWS and all of the world wide protests.

We absolutely need to - Keep-on Keeping-ON.

[-] 2 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

'We absolutely need to - Keep-on Keeping-ON' - Definitely and this video was copied to me on another thread and I really think that OWS supporters and sympathisers will gain from watching it - "American Autumn - An Occudoc" ; http://vimeo.com/47690515 .

I watched it last night with my kids and a bunch of their friends and seeing their faces light up at the obvious truths spoken was a very special feeling. The OWS MSM blackout can be nullified if we all work on it.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Yes - a GR8 video - it needs to stay in circulation - get shared out on the internet - I have tweeted it a few times now - the more people who do the same - the larger the audience that is reached.

[-] 1 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

I am cooking and feeding nearly 20 people tonight as we watch the results and I will have this video on as we eat. It is very good - just like my pork chops in cider sauce! In fact I am going to go now and get some more preparation done so thank you for your comments and fingers firmly crossed that tomorrow morning I don't have to start worrying about emigrating with my family over the border to Canada!

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

If you have not seen it yet or even if you have - you may want to follow the occupy vid with the Inside Job Documentary.

I had some great country style boneless pork ribs the night before last - with some German style dumplings ( not the fluffy kind ) - and followed with a German style cottage cheese coffee cake.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

LOL - I am hoping for a real night of good things - like 1 the legalization of hemp/marijuana in Colorado Washington and Oregon.

[-] 2 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

Hemp is one one THE most versatile plants known to mankind! Fast growing and good for food, fibre and fuel. I was going to go but got sidetracked by a right-wing shill and now very glad that I stayed to see your comment. Got to hit the kitchen again now before I take the dogs for a walk. Good Luck in MN!

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

In case you have not seen it here is a link to the documentary Inside Job.

http://documentarystorm.com/inside-job/

Hemp also great for plastics - paper - fabrics - building material also.

Good luck in your area as well.

[-] 2 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

Thanx but I did my only post about 'Inside Job'! It is compulsory viewing for every OWS sympathiser and indeed every US citizen as far as I'm concerned. I REALLY LIKE the sound of 'cottage cheese coffee cake' and I shall be looking into it further but I really have to get going now! Good luck and good wishes until the next time.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Have a GR8 get together.

[-] 2 points by LeoYo (5762) 1 year ago

OWS in different cities should compete with each other to see who can encourage the most people to open credit union accounts.

And if possible, switch your health insurance to a mutual health insurance company. If people are going to have to buy health insurance, better to purchas with a stake in it rather than continuing to support the 1%.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Good idea - friendly competition - could be a world wide competition.

The people of the world unite in competition to strengthen society from the ground on up.

Something that the governments have failed at miserably lately.

He just conceded - he was surprisingly generous to Obama.

Marriage amendment back on track but still to close 49% no 48% yes.

And damn it all Bachman and Graves are still at 50 50

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Maryland are claiming a victory in marriage equality.

On the willard generosity, I'm thinking he was always a fallguy, a pawn.

What a loss for big money - Hey? They stated earlier tonight that the dem campaign was out spent 2 to 1.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Not having seen the ad campaign, I'm a bit in the dark.

When you think about who owns what, these corpoRATs are throwing money at their own subsidiaries, and claiming expenses all the way.

Not to be sounding negative on such a positive day, the millions spent on electioneering are going in circles, and there's really no winners.

If a tenth of that money was spent on homeless people, and sending medicine to poor nations, it would make a huge difference.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

True - the money has not lost until the People say otherwise.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

GoodNight GoodMorning GoodDay GoodAfternoon GoodEvening EVERBODY. We made it through another election - thank God no more political ads.

But now we really have a lot to accomplish. We have got to get the people involved. That will be the decisive difference.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

270 to win - It is reported at this time Obama 275 Mittens 203. Well now I guess it will come down to possible court battles challenges by the RINO/Kochs if they pursue it. Florida is still a reported 50 50 split.

Update now 281 to 203

Two hours to go till the polls close here in Mn - and it is predicted that we will have about 80% turnout.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Is 80% turnout usual for Mn?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

EDIT: MY Bad ( crossed eye's or something ) I thought I read - is this unusual - in which case this statement is correct - No not at all ( it is very normal for a large turnout in Mn ) - I am expecting to see a larger turnout myself - after all is said and done - people have been standing in line for an average wait of over an hour.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

The message is getting through, I feel.

Even diehard Aussie RWers are commenting on the worsening corruption of politicians.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

This is why I can NOT believe what is being reported by the MSM. Saying that the race is neck & neck. No one - absolutely no one - that I have talked to has had anything good to say about mittens - and everyone I have talked to has been disgusted by the RINO's in office.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

His son has financial interests in these electronic voting machines. Just got "patched" or something, I heard.

I recall suggesting that with a "first past the post" election, each voter gets given one marble, and they roll it down a slot of their choice for their candidate. The barrel for each candidate gets weighed before and after the polls closed, and there can be no doubt who won.

Simplify the vote. If people know that the system is not rigged, more people will be willing to make an effort to vote.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

From what has been reported so far today - it is gonna be a very contentious and debated result. Obama's term may already end before a winner is declared by the courts.

More obfuscation, in other words.

They like playing around with the people's money, don't they?

I want to see fresh updates on the 43 trillion dollar lawsuit. That money has been hoarded offshore to the detriment of the USA. Pulled straight out of the economy and hidden away.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yes, I wasn't aware the case was brought so long ago.

If you get busted with some dope, you'll be in court the next day, but white-collar criminals need a couple of years to get their "house" in order before fronting a judge they've probably had installed by their congressman.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Yep - got money? You get to play your game. That is another reason for the common individual to unite. Economic recovery measure put in place by the public.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28457) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Yes - these types of actions and the possibility for change that they bring must stay in circulation - so that more and more people are exposed to an idea that they may not have heard of yet or stopped to consider yet.

Are you against OWS?

[-] 2 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

Yes he is. He sent me a private message with this - http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/09/17/occupy-wall-street-a-frenzy-that-fizzled/ to which I answered -

Well that was a surprise. I never had a 'Personal Message' before. Not sure why you sent me that though. It is a negative article and perhaps you agree with its take.

OWS is not a 'fad' and although I like Elliot Spritzer - it is far too early to talk about OWS' 'legacy'. If you think OWS has fizzled then your being here and sending me this link paints you as a right-wing, anti-OWS person or agent.

Please do not send me anything else or I'll have to confront you on the forum. Thanks but no thanks and The NYTimes stopped reporting 'the news' a long time ago!

Now I don't like being a tell-tale but I like right wing shills even less - much less - like not at all!

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Nice response. I ignored it and the repeated other ones he sent. I'd rather deal with him out in the open.

My question was facetious anyway.

Thx

[-] 1 points by Ache4Change (3158) 1 year ago

The thing about whispering right wing shills is that they can't stand scrutiny, so I agree that 'out in the open' is probably the best way to deal with them. Good job that you asked your question because we got to 'out' him! Thank you.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I haven't lied. You know I'm a man. You won't produce evidence because you have none. You have none because none exists. I guess you are calling me feminine because you think women are inferior.

Sounds like you are a sexist piece of shit. deserving of much disrespect and derision.

Why are you a sexist Dick? That IS your name right? Dick?

[-] 0 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 1 year ago

Why are you taking that as an insult? Are you saying women are less worthy of dignity? I don't care if you are or not, I was just addressing you by gender. Same thing as, 'hey man'. Again, you show how little you have in common with the left by taking such offense to being called a female when there is no picture or name to go by. And yes, the nick name for Richard is Dick. You got that right sucker.

Some people live on credit cards, GF.

Their whole wage gets paid into their mortgage account, and the card is linked to the same account.

I don't demand cash for final payment, but there's no way I'm going to buy all the materials to go into someone else's renovation project. Too much money involved. If they can't do cash, they get to come shopping with me.

here's a new saying of mine: "The information age has been hijacked by disinformation."

"...people's congress that does not recognise the criminal elements and mafiosa alphabet soup..." The key words: "does not recognise" ~ they won't recognize, they don't recognize, they are undiscerning, un-nuanced, completely vulnerable innocents. And arrogant!

Unless we have some spontaneous combustion epiphany, some revelation critical mass, some leap of learning, or Darwinian second chance, we are fucked! !

You may very well be right. But those sweet promises are checks they will never ever have to cash, aren't they? Which makes them very easy to write.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

3rd party - Independent and such is not a bad thing - again it is the individuals stance - support people ? or not. To break the party cycle - people need to start supporting and opposing issues and look for representatives to office that are gonna support them - the issues of the people. Changes like that are best made locally for state and federal house representation - the presidential spot will open as progress is made from the bottom up elsewhere. IMO

It should - who the hell wants a rep on crack as governor.

From what I am reading, Tammy Baldwin beat Tommy Thomson in Wisconsin. Jesse Jackson, Jr. was reelected (for real). And it looks like we have our worst case scenario for governor.

It just might go to court. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle permalink

Congrats on your first lesbian senator.

Now we need some confirmed athiests. ;-)

I have seen reports of a couple dem wins in state elections - nothing so far on the rep.

I think we will see a major initiative by the corpoRATs to win things in court in stressed areas.

Ya, they are my secret cute thing.

It could be in court. They pull out all the stops when it comes to this. I'm sure there are lawyers waiting.

I'm over the projections from msm. It's almost nine and we have 235 out of 527 precincts reporting in my county. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle permalink

Just saw Warren is a projected winner at this time as is Donneley.

Marriage amendment at 59% so far projected a fail for those who would refuse marriage to all.

Ya, I am watching the Warren race and I'm also hoping Joe Walsh gets kicked to the curb.

Ya know, I wonder how many TP folks lost in this or better yet, how many TP folks cost the GOP? Mourdock lost a seat that the GOP held for 3 decades.

Ok, that's it. I'm out. Have a good night, DKA.

LOL - love the mental picture that conjures. pink sock monkey pajamas EDIT: I'LL just bet that you are as cute as a button in those jammys - all sleepy eyed and ready to sleep. {:-])

Yeah - I don't know how long I am gonna stay up either - especially considering the mess that a lot of East Coast voting is being done in.

I think it likely that this election will end up hotly contested in court - whichever way it is called.

I know, right? I've been trying to stay with it long enough to find out if I get a republican governor or a republican governor on crack. But, to be honest, it's cold and I'm tired. I dug out my pink sock monkey pajamas and I could very well pass out. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle permalink

Edited for: It looks like Mourdock is going to get beaten.

BOOM - roll comes to a screeching halt with a flat tire. It has been a long day and it sucks waiting for results to see whether sanity will rule or not.

Perhaps being a little transparent - and people thinking that I am dark skinned - I am actually just ........... ( full of ) .... No .... fond of spray tanning.

Consider it to be a quantitative easing made by the public to strengthen the community/society from the ground on up.

BTW - this is an economic recovery measure that has not been applied yet.
