Letters of support for Jeremy Hammond
Kinda self explanatory (address hard to read, click on jpg). I told you all in March of 2012 that there were bad times ahead and we needed solidarity. Whether it’s Occupy or Anonymous or the Plowshares, there are people who kick the beehive for the rest of us and they get stung. And we’re a […]
Jeremy Hammond pleads out to avoid life in prison
For those joining late, Jeremy Hammond was arrested last year for being involved with the Wikileaks file dump of incriminating information about the company Stratfor. Stratfor is an information-gathering company which has been doing work for US intelligence agencies–work those agencies are barred by law from doing themselves. The CIA can’t spy on American citizens […]
Kathleen dances on rope at the Socrates Sculpture Park
I hope I have not given anyone the wrong impression here. This is the lovely & talented Kathleen Stansell, who got ‘BRAVO!’ at the Theater for the New City Lower East Side Festival of the Arts on Sunday night. She endured crazy audience people and pie and concerned stage hands (“Whaddaya MEAN she throws a […]

Another Occupy Bull Connor Moment–Carmen Pittman tasered
Carmen Pittman, an Occupy Atlanta activist who was part of a group of protesters in front of Eric Holder’s Justice Department, was tasered by Capitol police today. For over a year, she and her family fought an attempt by Chase to foreclose on her grandmother’s house. She’s one of a group of activists who were […]
At Last! The GOP ‘fesses up about Willard’s taxes!!!
As at least 35 of you know by now (I know–I check hits daily), I followed the story of Willard Romney’s taxes and what he paid into the IRS for much of the last election. This was following up on the allegation by Harry Reid that the Mittster hadn’t been paying anything for a ten-year […]
