Chalking a Crime?

California man faces 13 years in jail for scribbling anti-bank messages in chalk

Jeff Olson, the 40-year-old man who is being prosecuted for scrawling anti-megabank messages on sidewalks in water-soluble chalk last year now faces a 13-year jail sentence. A judge has barred his attorney from mentioning freedom of speech during trial.

According to the San Diego Reader, which reported on Tuesday that a judge had opted to prevent Olson’s attorney from “mentioning the First Amendment, free speech, free expression, public forum, expressive conduct, or political speech during the trial,” Olson must now stand trial for on 13 counts of vandalism.

In addition to possibly spending years in jail, Olson will also be held liable for fines of up to $13,000 over the anti-big-bank slogans that were left using washable children’s chalk on a sidewalk outside of three San Diego, California branches of Bank of America, the massive conglomerate that received $45 billion in interest-free loans from the US government in 2008-2009 in a bid to keep it solvent after bad bets went south.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

(excerpt)

These banks, which already possess enormous power just by virtue of their financial holdings – in the United States, the top six banks, many of them the same names you see on the Libor and ISDAfix panels, own assets equivalent to 60 percent of the nation’s GDP – are beginning to realize the awesome possibilities for increased profit and political might that would come with colluding instead of competing. Moreover, it’s increasingly clear that both the criminal justice system and the civil courts may be impotent to stop them, even when they do get caught working together to game the system.

If true, that would leave us living in an era of undisguised, real-world conspiracy, in which the prices of currencies, commodities like gold and silver, even interest rates and the value of money itself, can be and may already have been dictated from above. And those who are doing it can get away with it. Forget the Illuminati – this is the real thing, and it’s no secret. You can stare right at it, anytime you want.

Tax the Rich

December 7, 2012

Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale, is narrated by Ed Asner, with animation by Mike Konopacki. Written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers. An 8 minute video about how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality. Things go downhill in a happy and prosperous land after the rich decide they don’t want to pay taxes anymore. They tell the people that there is no alternative, but the people aren’t so sure. This land bears a startling resemblance to our land.

*Palestinians Criticize Democrats’ Jerusalem Stance

The Democrats on Wednesday restored language in the platform saying Jerusalem “is and will remain the capital of Israel.” A day earlier, the language had been removed from the platform, prompting Republicans to question President Barack Obama’s support for Israel.

The language is at odds with U.S. policy calling for the status of Jerusalem to be resolved through negotiations. Both Israel and the Palestinians claim east Jerusalem.

Nabil Abu Rdeneh, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Thursday the Democrat’s decision might just be “election propoganda.” He said a failure to recognize the Palestinian claim to east Jerusalem will “destroy the peace process” and lead to “endless war.”

Are Corporate Leaders Egotistical Psychopaths ?

I Am Fishead

“Every meaningful change starts with awareness. In our culture, we not only praise psychopaths in the highest positions of power, but in many cases, they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs! We have delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes and revealed something crucial about us.”

Great docu, narrated by Peter Coyote, challenging your state of mind.

A whack to the concept of free will?

*Moody’s declares Greece in default

“The US-based credit rating agency issued a statement on Friday, saying that “even as 85.8 percent” of the holders of Greek government bonds had agreed to the plan, the “exercise of collective action clauses that Athens is applying to its bonds will force the remaining bondholders to participate.”

“According to Moody’s definitions, this exchange represents a ‘distressed exchange’ and therefore a debt default.”

*Goldman Sachs told U.S. (when push comes to shove) they WILL BE Paid for Debt BEFORE Social Security and Medicare Recipients! Forget citizens PAY BANKS!

“This is PROOF in my opinion – all the debt prison has been created on purpose!

What type of SOUL LESS Banks are running this country? That is WHO is really running the country. All those in the government are merely Puppets of the banks!”

*War Clouds On The Potomac. No Not Iran. War Declared On You.

“All of the fear mongering about attacking Iran and launching WW III is a psychological ploy to keep you distracted from the ongoing theft of tens of trillions of dollars from you by the New York and London banks. This is a long term project to reduce us all to Debt Slavery. It should not take much longer for them to steal what little remains to be taken. All they need to do is to keep your mind focused elsewhere for a little while longer.”
