16. Alter the Media
I do send out emails to that list. The way they tarnish everything President Obama does (ipods to the Queen, touching the Queen) - diminish the good news by stupid focus on stupid things, nothing but negative gossip.

So...type type type a line or two. Send it out. Easy as posting. Can't do any harm. Will help to 'vent,' your feelings.

BUT -- more significantly -- do actions, make events that have consequences. This goes beyond the idea of doing something that 'can't be ignored,' to the idea of doing something that has consequences, that effects events, that changes situitions: like voting is good example; makes no difference what media says so much as who gets elected.

Or legal actions.

Or Congressional investigations.

Or Constitutional powers given to people for Recall, Initiative & Referendum.
