• Stop Corporate Tax Cuts
    Two thirds of all U.S. corporations do not pay federal income tax. If they paid their fair share, we wouldn't have to cut teachers, firefighters and public services. Every year corporate tax havens cost us $100 billion. That's nearly enough to balance the budgets of all 50 states. Corporate tax avoiders are bankrupting the United States.

  • Stop the TransCanada Pipeline
    TransCanada wants to build a risky tar sands oil pipeline right through the Sandhills and Ogallala Aquifer. They are bullying Nebraska landowners and threatening our state's economic activity. We cannot risk the Ogallala, which provides clean drinking water for 85% of Nebraskans and crop irrigation water for two million Americans in other states. Get more info at boldnebraska.org

  • Save Quality Child Care in California!
    Help save quality child care programs in California from being cut in the California State Budget. All child care programs in California have received a 15% across the board cut. But now, quality preschool and infant toddler centers that meet the highest quality standards are at risk of being cut by AN ADDITIONAL 10% CUT OVER the 15%. These centers will not be able to stay open if they are cut. We are calling upon the Legislature and Governor to stop high standard centers being singled out for an unfair ADDITIONAL CUT.

  • Representative Saunders, Don't Abandon Women!
    Recently Representative Ron Saunders, Leader of the Florida House Democratic Caucus, made the following statement regarding Representative Daphne Campbell’s anti-choice votes in the Florida House: “The abortion issue is deeply personal and emotional. The Florida House Democratic Caucus did not take a position on any abortion bills and all members, including Representative Campbell, were free to vote any way that they wished on those bills." This statement is UNACCEPTABLE to the women, men, and organizations, across political party lines, who support comprehensive women’s health care and the Constitutional right for women to choose to have an abortion. And it is even more outrageous because it was made by a leader of the Democratic Party, the party whose national platform strongly supports choice and access to reproductive health services.

  • U.S. Constitutional Amendment
    We need an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to stop the legalized bribery of elected officials by big business, labor unions, lobbyists and wealthy individuals. Only registered voters should be allowed to sway the candidates by donating money to their campaign and their political party. While Congress could pass laws to accomplish this, they clearly are not willing to give up this bountiful source of money.

  • No Marcellus Drilling on State Forest Land
    Gov. Tom Corbett's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources announced on April 27 that it will allow expanded fracking for natural gas on state forest lands. This new drilling will mean 3,800 wells. There are currently 164. Former Gov. Ed Rendell instituted a moratorium that prevented expanded drilling. It is completely within Corbett's power to maintain the moratorium and keep our state forest lands protected. Tell Corbett to keep the moratorium in place.

  • Open your eyes! Say YES to The Tilted Kilt in Fountain Square.
    Businessman Ted Mavrakis has come under social and political cross-hairs for his desire to lease prime real estate space to The Tilted Kilt restaurant chain. The opponents of this plan have voiced their opinion, and are now asking the government to act in a way that will disallow this lease to happen. With recent mall foreclosures, excessive commercial vacancies, and a civic government that is littered with ineffectiveness and unaccountability, I am, just as many others are, deeply bothered by this. I refuse to watch the government make yet another foolish decision that will be detrimental to the business community. I refuse to let the voices of the few, who happen to be screaming the loudest, have their way once again. Mrs. Mayor, with all due respect, please take an objective look and see what is happening to our “downtown” area. We are in dire need of economic growth. We are in dire need of businesses that will drive traffic to the downtown area. You need to allow The Tilted Kilt to obtain their liquor license. Allow Mr. Mavrakis to lease his space by doing so, and let those who don't want to patronize this establishment dine elsewhere. I am hoping to gather 4000 signatures in support of growth in the downtown area, in agreement that the local government needs to realign itself behind the fledgling business community, and in support of Mr. Mavrakis untarnished track record in this town.

  • California: Make Education Funding Happen!
    California is considering more drastic cuts to education. This state is already one of the lowest when it comes funding. We can not afford to lose any more and take even deeper cuts.

  • Save Benton Harbor from Emergency Financial Manager
    Appointment of Emergency Financial Manager (EFM) disenfranchises Benton Harbor voters by stripping power away from officials they elected. Appointment of EFM places an onerous burden on the already stressed finances of Benton Harbor by forcing the city to pay $12,000 a month for EFM. Appointment of EFM creates an anti-democracy situation that further weakens the basic tenets of our free society.

  • UNITE TO END AMERICA’S ENEMY: THE CORPOCRACY
    America’s own worst enemy is its corpocracy, the Devil’s marriage between big business and our twin political parties. It is ruling and ruining America. Among advanced countries America has the greatest income inequality; highest unemployment; greatest insecurity over putting food on the table; lowest life expectancy at birth; and largest prison population (minus unaccountable corporate criminals). The corpocracy has also shrunk the middle class; catered to the wealthy elite; left millions of Americans without health insurance coverage; and has started endless, unwinnable, costly wars for profit and power that snuff out millions of lives, fuel terrorism against America, and sacrifice the general welfare. Our nation’s founders didn’t like corporations or political parties. Corporations were not mentioned in our Constitution. The America today is not what our founders envisioned, and they would be horrified if they were to return. The Constitution was meant to promote the general welfare of the American people, not corporate and political welfare. The corpocracy is extremely powerful and has powerful allies like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The corpocracy’s opposition is weak and divided. The only way to end the corpocracy is to unite its opposition. There are many NGOs with millions of members opposed to the corpocracy, but they are not united.
