Stop the Bail out
I've been really busy with a move to park slope, lots of work and taking childbirth classes.
Just wanted to pass this along to do my part to help stop the panic attack of the Bush administration to make us pay for greedy wall streets actions.
STOP THE BAIL OUT PROTEST TODAY.
Since Bush wants to buy up Wall Street's worthless investments with
Main Street's hard-earned tax dollars, folks are planning to bring
their OWN junk to Wall Street to see if they can get a bailout, too.
Bring your 8-track tape collection, high-school yearbook, Grampa's old
recliner, and that snow globe from Great Adventure – not to mention
your mortgage statements and student loan invoices -- and add 'em to
the pile! And tell Secretary Paulson why you deserve a bailout, too!
Bring your most audacious junk, junk that has a story, and make your
case. (Ordinary garbage discouraged.) This action inspired by
buymyshitpile.com. "No Cash for Trash!"
the serious part (with time & place details, etc.) :
This week the White House is trying to push through the biggest financial
theft in world history with nary a stitch of debate. They're asking for a
blank check for over 1 trillion dollars to bail out George Bush's Wall
Street cronies who created this economic crisis in the first place.
If this passes, we can forget about any money for environmental protection,
to counter global warming, for education, for national healthcare, to
rebuild our decaying infrastructure, for alternative energy.
This is a historic moment. We need to act now while we can influence the
Let's rally against the bailout in the heart of the financial district!
