100 Arrested As Protesters Flood Wall Street in Climate Crisis Sit-in

Demonstrator Nicholas Powers, who teaches black and feminist literature at SUNY Old Westbury, said that unlike Sunday’s protest, the sit-in was less about building consensus and more about confronting the institutions they feel are responsible for stalled political action to reverse global warming.

Dressed in a green wig and superhero outfit, protester Jenna DeBoisblanc said at a rally in a park near Wall Street before the protest that those assembled were expecting arrests at the sit-in.

“I think arrests in particular are a very good way of conveying the gravity of an issue,” said DeBoisblanc, an environmental activist from New Orleans. “If you’re willing to risk arrest it certainly demonstrates that it’s something very urgent.”

On Sunday, actors Mark Ruffalo and Evangeline Lilly were among the 100,000 estimated protesters. It was one of many demonstrations around the world urging policymakers to take quick action.

Scenes from The People’s Climate March

All told, there were almost 2,700 climate change gatherings held Sunday in 156 countries. The marchers in Manhattan could see some of the other demonstrations in places like Rio, New Delhi and Melbourne being broadcast live on giant video screens set up along the parade route.

“Hey! Ho! Fossil Fuels Have Got to Go!” — World Sees Largest Climate March in History Amidst Mounting Dangers

Originally posted on GarryRogers Nature Conservation:

According to the National Climate Data Center, the summer of 2014 was the hottest in the global record. It was a season of record wildfires, sea surface temperatures far above the 20th Century average, and of record droughts and rainfall events around the globe. And it was a year in which the ability of nations to provide food for the world’s seven billion and growing population amidst a mounting tally of extreme droughts and floods was called increasingly into question.

On Sunday September 24, 2014, the ever-more alarmed people of the world responded.  In New York City, an estimated 410,000 took …

Arab States Lag in Media War Against Extremists

The free world helps those that help themselves, if our friends of the Arab world do not wish to

“GET DOWN and DIRTY with their ENEMY?

Why should WE?

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/arab-states-lag-media-war-extremists-25656484

It is a fable believing that the Lord helps those that help themselves.

The Lord is always willing to help those willing to come for the Lords help.

If you are in need of help stealing, call a politician, if you need help saving your life from your enemies start helping yourself, then call on us.

If you want to sit on your butts and get help against your enemies, call on your God?

Shrinking middle class takes toll on retailers

by

Maria Halkias

http://www.dallasnews.com/business/retail/20140913-shrinking-middle-class-takes-a-toll-on-retailers.ece

A shrinking middle class is at least partly to blame for price cuts that have left retailers with lame prospects for profit growth.

What if retailers’ slashed margins, due to constant price cuts, are at least partially attributable to a middle class that just isn’t as well-off?

The last time stores saw a burst of free spending was in 2006 and 2007. More households then had wallets enriched by two comfortable incomes and easy mortgage refinancing. But the recession forced many shoppers into a perpetual state of frugality.

Yes!

Most houses had two incomes back in 2006, usually one was a bread winner and the other to enrich their lives and/or to put away for a rainy day.

The thing is the household had at least one person with a real job paying real pay for hard work rendered with good insurance so the household could afford to buy nice things, take a vacation once in a while, then along came congress passing the outsourcing possibilities for big business and the massive loss of American jobs to 3rd world country sweatshops!

Let’s not forget the Reagan era of destroying bargaining power for the worker and the trip back to the 1920’s.

How to come up with a responsible budget

by

Michael Levin in Clermont

Voices today 09/21/2014 Daily Commercial

Look a Roundtable, what a concept?

Put a team of professionals around a table and ask them what they would require in order to make a responsible decision on a $200 million budget.

OK, we need to stop here for a few moments?

I like the idea, problem is, “Where are we going to get this group of professionals in Florida let alone responsible decision makers and then expect them to make an honest decision on a $200 million budget”?

This is what we now have.

How do we dump this do nothing group and also find your “Dream Team”?

Might I offer up a suggestion?

How about we make it a Roundtable, a table of everyday Lake County taxpaying citizens to come up with a few ideas, then have the rest of our citizens in Lake County vote on the one that they like the best?

No particular politician party, any taxpaying Lake County Citizen.

Politicians an Lobbyist not included!

First thing also remember that the town fathers grandfathered Dan’s Feed into the new code system.

Remember that this town ‘Umatilla’ has a small section of it, a small town, with a road from Mount Dore to Eustis running through it and the people living there do not want change to their town.

10 years later, vacant land is all that remains of Parramore Village’s rebirth

Nearly 100 people lived in Parramore Village before City Hall forced them to move and razed their homes — the beginning, they were told, of the neighborhood’s rebirth. Orlando taxpayers spent $1.3 million to relocate the residents, some of whom had lived there 35 years, and to bulldoze their former homes. City officials were in a hurry to tear down Parramore Village and clear the way for a new residential community. More than 10 years later, the property remains a vacant lot, surrounded by a chain-link fence that’s falling down, and hopeful-but-outdated signs still promising new homes that aren’t coming. It’s just one of many lofty plans for Orlando’s

Commissioner Daisy Lynum will face another ethics probe

April 29, 2009

The latest inquiry stems from use of the commissioner’s city-issued parking pass by her son. A 2008 city audit found that Juan Lynum had used the commissioner’s pass to park free in city garages nearly every day for at least 21 months.

Commissioner Daisy Lynum Under State Investigation

Eyewitness News obtained documents that show Orlando Commissioner Daisy Lynum is under a state investigation for abusing her power. The State Ethics Commission is leading the investigation into a controversial phone call she made after her son was pulled over by an Orlando police officer.

The findings against Lynum will be made public Wednesday, but Eyewitness News has already obtained the documents that show probable cause for a deeper probe. The probable cause means the Ethics Commission will now proceed with a formal hearing of the Lynum complaint.
