In light of the tragic yet hopeful events of last Friday–when immigration authorities entered the home of Arizona immigrant rights advocate Erika Andiola and arrested her mother and brother, but after public outcry released them the following day–we are re-posting a story from 2010, when Border Patrol agents increased raids in public areas around the lower Rio Grande Valley. Stories like Francisca’s below are being brought to the forefront of the fight for immigration reform. If you have experienced a situation like Erika or Francisca’s, you are encouraged to share it under the hashtag #WeAreAndiola.

“I was a victim. I believe that they violated my rights,” says Francisca of Edinburg. Her and her 6 children were detained by the Border Patrol early in the morning June 1, 2010 on their way to work in the tomato fields. Francisca and her four oldest children came to the US ten…

The Seven Things You Need to Know About the Tax Deal

20130102-131139.jpg

Last night, Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. That means middle-class families won’t see an increase in their income tax rates. We’ve avoided the fiscal cliff.

President Obama will sign the legislation soon. Last night, he described the agreement as, “one step in the broader effort to strengthen our economy and broaden opportunity for everybody.

Googlemitt romney president”. For each ad you click on, it will cost his campaign $1.71.

Look at the column far right. That is the cost per click

EDIT: If enough people did this, it could essentially knock the ad off Google because Romney campaign will see they are paying for ads/clicks that are not generating donations.

EDIT: The location of the ads you want to click on have a yellow background and will be at the top of your search results. Ads in the sidebar on the right are also paid, click them if they link to a Romney site.

Another thing I often do is give a dollar to the campaign, and return blank envelopes with the prepaid postage to their campaign offices after they continually send me more solicitations. If those envelopes are not used, they don’t have to pay for the shipping, but if you send it back empty, the postage adds up, QUICK.

Hartmann: If Obama Doesn’t Want to Lead the Revolution – Young People Will

 


Anonymous: Occupy The Planet

 

 

 

This is the revolution that they – and even older Americans – hoped for when Barack Obama pledged to “fundamentally change the United States and the world” when he was elected President in 2008. But so far – this pledge has been unfulfilled. Turns out – Barack Obama was not that much of a revolutionary. But ultimately – it was never about him – it was about us – and in particular it was about the young people – because all revolutions – even Reagan‘s – don’t originate from one man – they originate from the people – from the bottom up. From Jefferson to Lincoln – and from FDR to Reagan – these men who presided over great changes in America didn’t create revolutions – they simply seized control of a nation pregnant with revolution and oversaw the transformation – and in some cases guided it. If President Obama discovers his inner revolutionary and steps forward with that voice and message and behavior, he’ll get re-elected – and then he will have to carry forward with a revolution. On the other hand, if President Obama doesn’t want to be a revolutionary – if he doesn’t want to take on the banksters – if he doesn’t take on and actually reverse Reagan’s counter-revolution – that’s fine – because the young people assembled in Manhattan – and all over the nation – will.
It’s already started…
