Stealing from Grandma, Raping and Bullying the world...who are the bystanders now?
We have been watching our government rape and pillage the world in this war of terror...
stealing from our friends and family's retirement to pay for it....
We have watched millions of homes stolen through illegal foreclosures, where not only were the banks not held accountable, they were rewarded for their crimes with our money.
One Year After Settlement, No one Has Helped Families Facing Foreclosure with Millions More to Come
We have watched the politicians blame our friends and family for needing help after they sent their job overseas with 'free' trade agreements.
We have watched friends and family file bankruptcy due to medical bills and get blamed for an out of control medical system that the politicians only feed, never tame.
The little guy, the underdog, in this country is being stepped on repeatedly, and kicked in the balls, another knee to the head...they are being continuously abused in the elite's quest for more more more!!!
And we the people are just watching as bystanders, an election here or there, but for the most part, we are watching this horrible slow motion train wreck as if we are in a bad movie we cannot shut off.
Let's stop just watching and waiting for the corporate media and the Republican morons to lead the discussion, and start doing something to help push poor people out of the way of this greed train.
We cannot afford to just watch and wait and hope for the best.
We need to take this up a level from bystander...
Obama is irritated with us for complaining about his crappy fiscal deal, apparently he is listening...let's take it up a notch!!

2. Hold the ones we've got accountable
Make them miserable. Don't worry about the next election. That's the one element on your list I don't see.
We let them slide for "fear" we will lose that seat - that member of the Senate. You know what? So what. Let them lose for doing the right thing.
Case in point - Alan Grayson. He lost his seat flung the right thing. Two years later - he's back. Because people in his district realized his words and methods aren't pretty - but he doesn't have a forked tongue.
