The American economy continues to unravel, with the gains of the New Deal giving way to unemployment, austerity, and a seemingly bleak future for young Americans.
Yet the prime actors in this process – the gamblers, looters and free traders of Wall Street – continue to enrich themselves at our expense.
If you buy a new American-made car, prepare to cough up thousands of dollars in sales taxes. BUT – when a hedge fund buys or sell millions of dollars in toxic, job-destroying derivatives, they don't pay one red cent!
Had enough? Make them pay! Join our call for a 1% Wall Street Sales Tax!
There, in a nutshell, is the sad explanation of what has happened to the American economy over the last 25 years of "trickle down" economics.
They are selling you down the river!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BREAKING: Tonight the Senate voted 62-37 to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), also known as Fast Track, for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and any other free trade deal that arises over the next six years. They passed a highly unpopular piece of legislation at the 11th hour on the Friday night before Memorial Day weekend when they thought no one was paying attention. Now off to the party they go. And we, onto the fight in the House, where we have a chance to stop the madness. Please take action. Contact your Representatives and tell them to vote NO TPA. NO FAST TRACK. Call and leave a voicemail. Send an EMAIL. Make your voice heard! (Please note: we reported in error that the previous Senate vote was the final approval while it was not. Our apologies. This is the real deal.)
If you live in any of these districts, please call your Reps and tell them #NoFastTrack for the #TPP
Rep David E. Price (NC-04)
Rep Terri Sewell (AL-07)
Rep Jared Polis (CO-02)
Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (MD-05)
For those of you who don't live in one of these four districts, you can still take action. Call & Email your Reps here: www.stopfasttrack.com

Say, do you have any guns? I threw that in.
Excerpt - he FBI agents were cordial and seemingly confused about the Jade Helm 15 operation.
But make no mistake, they did not visit this American because they needed more information from him so that they could look into the military exercises. Their prerogative was to profile and garner more intelligence about the ‘extremist’ views held by the man who answered the door. They wanted to know what he knew and specifically, who he knew, presumably because they would be paying those folks a visit as well.
The FBI and our nation’s entire homeland security apparatus is now implementing Stalin-esque techniques to keep tabs on dissenters.
Incidentally, the Jade Helm 15 operation is designed to train military operatives how to identify and round up dissidents and subversives (and their children), and then ship them off in shackles to government managed detention facilities.
Excerpt - Nearly a year has passed since a Habersham County SWAT team stormed into the Phonesavanh residence, and very nearly killed their 19 month old child. The no-knock raid was prompted by an anonymous tip which suggested there were drugs in the house. As the officers forced their way into the home, they lobbed a flash grenade which wound up landing in the crib where baby “bou-bou” was sleeping. As it erupted, the infant suffered severe burns and had to be taken to the hospital, and placed in a medically induced coma.
The act of sleeping in a room about to be breached by a SWAT team constituted “criminal” conduct on the part of the infant. At the very least, the infant was fully liable for the nearly fatal injuries inflicted on him when Habersham County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Long blindly heaved a flash-bang grenade – a “destructive device,” as described by the ATF, that when detonated burns at 2,000-3,500 degrees Fahrenheit – into the crib.
Merely by being in that room, Bou-Bou had assumed the risk of coming under attack by a SWAT team. By impeding the trajectory of that grenade, rather than fleeing from his crib, Bou-Bou failed to “avoid the consequences” of that attack.
In any case, Bou-Bou, along with his parents and his siblings, are fully and exclusively to blame for the injuries that nearly killed the child and left the family with more than one million dollars in medical bills. The SWAT team that invaded the home in Cornelia, Georgia on the basis of a bogus anonymous tip that a $50 drug transaction had occurred there is legally blameless.
This is the defense presented by Haberham County Sheriff Joey Terrell and his comrades in their reply to a federal lawsuit filed last February on behalf of Bou-Bou Phonesavanh and his family.
