The US Senate recently had the chance to vote on a 28th Amendment to the US Constitution that would overturn Citizens United and finally rollback the Supreme Court’s electoral anarchy. Most Americans want this amendment, so what did Congress do?
They voted it down. The US Senate filibustered the vote. Congress killed the amendment.
This is the most useless Congress we've ever had as a country. They've passed less laws than “Do-Nothing Congress” of the 1940’s; they literally do less than nothing. That’s why this Congress is dead to me. We’re done waiting on Congress to act.
At Wolf PAC, we’re taking the fight to the states. Asking Congress to fix Congress is like asking cancer to cure cancer. The US Congress is bought and sold by billionaires and outside interests, but the good news is that our state legislators still listen.
We have found the cure to the cancer of corruption that is consuming the nation’s capital - it’s in the hands of the state legislators serving in your local state capital. We've already passed resolutions in two states to propose an amendment through a convention of the states, and more resolutions will be introduced in 2015.
Most amendments throughout our history started with the states calling for a convention and the Congress eventually proposing it. The Bill of Rights got proposed by Congress when New York and Virginia called for a convention for those amendments. We wouldn't have the 17th Amendment if the states didn't get extremely close to calling for a convention. The historical record is clear: if you need an amendment to the US Constitution, then you call for a convention through the states. We need a 28th Amendment to restore free and fair elections in America, with or without this useless Congress.
OCCUPY THE TEA PARTY
Occupy The Tea Party
As the People's Climate March is right around the corner and we have our so called Leaders who meet to "do something" on Climate Disruption, that most of the time proves to lead nowhere, or at best small small victories. Over all with the urgency we face as the people of the world, we need to push harder to get real solutions.
Technology exists, the only thing standing in the way is the that those in place now, with Special Interests, are bound and determined to keep us on the road of fossil fuels. The urgent article I placed on that was based on Pricewaterhousecoopers findings; brings another reality to the eyes of the worlds leaders......our time is NOW. We don't have anymore time to kick this can down the road.
56 progressive organizations sent a letter to Congress last night.
That letter told every single member to block big corporations from "inverting" -- pretending to be located offshore just to dodge U.S. taxes.
It looks like you haven't told your Senators yet to support the Stop Corporate Inversions Act, sponsored by Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI). Can you do that right now?
If we don't put a halt to this new offshore game, dozens of big companies will play it -- and avoid $20 billion in U.S. taxes over the next decade. That's going to hurt. Congress is only in session for the rest of this week. Make sure your Senators hear from you before they go
"There must be progress, certainly. But we must ask ourselves what kind of progress we want, and what price we want to pay for it. If, in the name of progress, we want to destroy everything beautiful in our world, and contaminate the air we breathe, and the water we drink, then we are in trouble."

"Animals Do Have a Voice.
If You Ignore Their Suffering, I will Remind You of it. If You Don't Understand Them, I will Translate. If you Don't Hear Them, I Will Be Their Voice. You May Silence Them, But You CANNOT Silence Me As Long as I Live."Mission "I am the Voice of the Voiceless; Through me the dumb shall speak.
Till the deaf world's ears be made to hear,
The wrongs of the wordless weak.
And I am my brothers keeper,
And I will fight his fights;
And speak the words for beast and bird,
Till the world shall set things right."
Who/what is ANIMAL VOICE ? http://www.freewebs.com/animalvoice/
Animal Voice goal is to raise more awareness on the way animals are treated all over the world, in any field, from the most common issue of vegetarianism to more shocking news like the cat and dog fur trade ongoing in China (where they manufacture fur-clothes and accessories that are successively sold as cheaper brands in European and american markets....you may have in your closet one of those jackets with a fur rim on the hood ...and guess what... it probably come from a Chinese Fido or Garfield...)
We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for those who can't speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees Hereditary Chief Qwatsinas (Edward Moody)
"Every sixty seconds, thirty acres of rain forest are destroyed in order to raise beef for fast food restaurants that sell it to people, giving them strokes and heart attacks, which raise medical costs and insurance rates, providing insurance companies with more money to invest in large corporations that branch out further into the Third World so they can destroy more rain forests."- George Carlin, comedian.DandelionThe Bush Administration left, but many of the people who surrounded him have stayed with the Obama Adminsitration from those in Banking, we can't have the former Lobbyist for Monsanto being in charge of the FDA. We won't be breathing long if the continuation of the fossil fuels goes on with the tar sands out of Canada, the fracking, etc. The ice is melting more each summer on the poles and once the permafrost melts at too high a rate, and it is at present doing so, then we will release more and more methane gas that is adding even quicker to our carbon footprint. Methane holds more carbon than even the tar sands which is the dirtiest form of oil being extracted right now. So we have limited time for air, once the methane starts to release gas in large amounts and it is goodbye life. Animals and people all are gone. This is poisonous and Science can't fool with Mother Nature as they say, and get away with it forever....So it is VERY IMPORTANT.....CRITICAL.....that people become aware of those who are in control and what is taking place. I do what I can that way.
