Oct 24-29 is Mile High Showdown, plus Obama, Tar Sands, 1% Robin Hood Tax

Mile High Showdown, Oct 24 - Oct 29
DENVER- Is it a vanguard action? Check it out and decide, but make sure YOUR itinerary includes TUES 25TH protest of Tar Sands pipeline with American Indian Movement at the UC-Denver Auraria Campus, WED 26TH protest of Obama visit, also on Auraria Campus, and SAT 29TH global march to demand Robin Hood Tax, the 1% tax on all international banking transactions. Really, just 1%? The Robin Hood of yore took more like 99% and left his highborn victims with just enough to limp back to the castle. 1% from the 1% is a start.

  1. The Robin Hood of yore took more like 99% and left his highborn victims with just enough to limp back to the castle.

    Yeah, there were still wolves in the woods at the time. He had to let them get back alive so they wouldn’t die, get eaten as carrion and give the wolves a taste for human.

    Consider, though, the GDP of New York City (thanx Cartoon Network) according to Moody’s is in the Trillions of dollars. 18 U.S. cities have high enough rankings that if they were countries instead of part of the U.S. credit score….

    From the robber barons and their castles. A 1% increase would pretty much cancel the national debt. That, and, you know, not starting any more bloody wars of conquest for the benefit of those same robber barons.

    And, for those who have just tuned in and didn’t do any research on the way in… (FOX is not real research, m’kay?) the Robber Barons got their money at public expense through government actions like wars. The oil barons just for example wouldn’t have a drop of oil if the Army hadn’t taken the oil fields from their original owners at gunpoint.
