I notice that you mention CELDF.org in your article and that they helped draft the ordinance. I have referenced CELDF.org several times here at Current over the last years. Great community organizing assistance and supporters. Richard Grossman was at one time working with them, not sure he is there now, but he also helped me with some community work back in the 80's in Arkansas, I cannot say enough good things about his efforts. I am sure all the folks at CELDF.org are all that good. I will do what I can to help spread this information. I really think your headline is as good as it gets! kudos...
Above is the link for their Democracy Schools, there are three ways to access them. One is an on-line school, then they have their regularly scheduled schools and they also will help with your own locally hosted school. I considered attending one of their trainingsworshops just to light my own fire. After attending several workshops back in the 80's we were able to assist an entire community with a buyout (somewhat like what happened at Love Canal). We even had Lois Gibbs come speak at one of actions in Arkansas. None of this could have happened without the support of outside help.
That is right , do it where you live . I have been getting a wildly enthusiastic response locally . This is doable . That is why , In Wisconsin , the want to get rid of the local community governance . This is the REAL threat to them . this is where WE win the WAR .
Uhhmm...Could it be that they're only commercial infotainment who
wanted to corner the market in news, but could never deliver on
what they falsely promised ????? Naw, that couldn't be the reason.
That would be too much like reality contact, and too little like their
Corporate mind control sublimation tricks to sell detergent.
You are getting sleepy, very sleepy. Though you're eyes are open,
you realize you're being bored to sleep. Yes. You're getting tired now,
very tired, and you want to sleep. You're a hopeless couch potato
sprouting sleep in front of your TV set because you're too lazy to
think for yourself, and too stupid to care. You're getting very tired
now, too tired to do anything to change. Any suggestion we give you,
you'll accept because like your parants, we know best. If we don't tell
you what's going on that you need to know about to do your civic duty
& protest, it's because we've decided it will only make your brain overheat.
So if we don't tell you what's realy going on because it's against our
best interest, don't be concerned. If it's out of sight it's out of mind.
What you don't know about can't hurt you, right ? Right. We're here
to tell you what to think, how to think, what to buy, who to vote for,
and who's for sale. We can sell anything or anyone we want even
if we don't own it or them, because you're mind is always receptive
to wanting to buy anything we tell you you need, right ? Right. Yes,
you're fast asleep now. We're going to count to 10 now, and when
you hear us say 10, you're eyes will open again, and you won't even
remember what we told you to do or that we told you to do it. 10.
Ha ! Sorry to disappoint , i studied marketing and my grandpa was deprogramming specialist/spy in WW2 , so i am 3rd generation talent , I cannot be brainwashed that easily , my curiosity/reason is far too strong . If religion could not do it , you may be a hard nut to crack .
HaHaHaHaHaHa. Good to hear that you're not the typical pushover.
People have told me I'm a hard nut to crack before. It derives from
being bright, perceptive, and strong willed. I trust you found my
Corporate TV hypnotic sleep induction rap amusing then. Since
you posted this article I kind of figured if anyone responded to it
they would find my explanation ponderous. Corporate TV has the
same homogenous message. They want you to think THEY are in
control of your mind. That only works for sheeple easily mind controlled.
They're susceptible to being mind controlled by external sources - the TV
" personalities " they watch because they're minds are too weak, open,
accepting. What the sheeple can't fathom is Corporate TV is Corporate
Govt.run TV. CIA Directors like Helms from the 1970s have publicly
boasted that " every TV personality is controlled by the CIA and in their
pocket ", I delivered newspapers during the earliest stages of the Vietnam
conflict of the late 1950s through 1975. Then I was too young and trusting
to understand in 1959 at the ripe old age of 10, that the newspapers printed
every line of info the CIA released to them verbatim. Their center page
editorials resembled that same mind control...But that didn't stop me
from marching in anti War(anti CIA) Peace marches in NYC w/ 300 others.
On the day in 1970 Nixon gave the order to expand the war by having B52s
carpet bomb Cambodia, we at S.U.N.Y. Oswego, marched with 4,000 students.
My major was Psychology. I took a keen interest in psychic studies & hypnosis.
My curiousity/reason is also far too strong. I took Logic & Sylogisms as a math
substitute to internaly order my mind. That especialy helped me develop my
faculties. When the human mind is well ordered, it thinks logicly. And proceeds
step by step as though it were a person walking. Strange as that may sound to
you it's nonetheless true. Corporate TV would need much much more than a
nutcracker to reprogram my mind. It's still open & sharp as a new buzzsaw.
The danger with being hypntized is that the hypnotized can act w/o inhibition,
and w/o even knowing they're being puppeteered by an external source. That
makes them a bad problem to others when they don't care if they're controlled.
Exactly , my friend . They were paying attention to Pittsburgh alright . If you wait around for them to come get YOUR town , they will get you too . I refuse to allow it . Washington state has been trying to get rid of corporate rights since 2004 . This time , i know our side will win . So far the support is overwhelming . Try asking a few people yourself , and see some real animation ....
Why? Because Michele Bachmann seems to be the only topic of conversation along with the debt ceiling political sideshow now and also Rupert Mudoch's pie in the face and national media is owned by the very companies this vote aims to fight. It's surely something that needs to spread through every community in the country to the point where it can't be ignored anymore. I'll mention it on Biorhythms and on my blog this week. If we spread it around at least more will know that way.
Pennsylvania stopped this train . They are being fought , yes . These corporate freak shows are killing my beloved planet , and my children's future with it . This is the best idea so far and I AM TIRED of always being of the defensive . Let us go on the Offensive , and END this nonsense , once and for all .
Very good advice , it shall be done ! It is astonishing , how many people want THIS . People you wouldn't even expect , once they understand it . It is simply a matter of getting the word out .... This is where this war , not just one battle , will be won , finally , by The People . Can you spread the word to other currenters ?
Well there is in fact a way to stop us and in the US we have historical facts to show us how they do the stopping------------search the net for the history of the rise of the Labor Movement in the US.
Murder at the hands of Federal Troops,Federal Marshall's, Corporate Thugs (Pinkertons), The CIA, The NSA, etc. is common place and used often. A look back at how we handled the native population of North America while we were stealing their lands may give you a glimpse.
Yes Virginia there is a monster within our souls and it's called CORPORATION!
You know that the US Constitution limits the lives of corporations to 20 years--------
the chamber of commerce has my town squelched if you say something against Rush and the others foxers the cut , paste and blessed hits you three fold and anyone that support you get the same thing .two supporters equal the same speal 9 times
Yes , i do know that bloody history . Our military , is far away at the moment . Can you think of a safer time for everyone to act on this simultaneously ? We would have them by the Ba!!s . Not even remotely enough cops or soldiers here to stop us all . Corporations exist on our American soil by OUR will alone . We can take back out power , if we just remember how .
Indeed ! WE , are the change we have been waiting for . I have been organizing all day , in my small town to get it happening here too . There is no way they can fight us all at the same time . We out number them and they would spend themselves into OBLIVION !
