I am watching last night’s “Bill Maher” on HBO. I am shocked to learned that after the Libyans killed their former dictator, the first thing they did was to, err, penetrate him rectally. Perhaps that’s why they want to investigate his death. No mention of this in American news: CNN and MSNBC. —GoodOleWoody
As I sit down to write this, we’ve received hundreds of emails from folks across America asking: “What’s next? What can I do to help?” Before we can answer these questions, I want to give everyone a brief but concise update what is happening in regard to our efforts to pass a constitutional amendment to Get Money Out of our politics.
Dylan, myself, and many others are referring to this period as a sort of “calm before the storm.” We have been meeting with countless people: in person, by phone, by email, even by Skype. Since I wrote you a week ago, we’ve dedicated our time to learn about and listen too, interesting, and often similar “movements” happening across America.
We are cooperating and learning able smart folks like John Bonifaz, Cenk Uygur, Lawrence Lessig, many diverse others from Texas to Hollywood, from finance to education. While we all may not completely agree with some ideas and mechanics in the process, we are all striving to achieve a shared mutual objective: to get money out of politics.
We will continue to post on www.GetMoneyOut.com many of the other amendments and the intentions of these shared legislative proposals. Dylan has assured me he will continue each week to host different guests on his show that with those that want to achieve the same goal.
What can we do right now?
Keep telling people you know about the collective goal we are trying to achieve, tell them that millions of other Americans are doing the same thing and what we are doing. Remind people. Tell your parents. Tell your parents’ parents. Tell your officemate or your next door neighbor. We are over 230,000 people strong on a petition, but we are millions in America who agree to these principles. It’s definitely the calm before the storm. And I’m awed and excited about this storm.
Send me your ideas and suggestions: Jimmy@GetMoneyOutFoundation.org (and yes, I read your emails).
Those that control the Republican party sent out young Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to decry the good efforts of the President who is trying to do his job as a President of all the people. Ryan accuses Obama of “sewing the seeds of discontent.” Mr. Ryan is too late to be making these false charges. DISCONTENT IS HERE…AND GROWING! Just yesterday a poll was released that said that 95% of black people in this country are solidly behind the President. The white independents who propelled Barack Obama into office have not lost their belief that Barack Obama has it it him to bring about sweeping changes to the stagnant culture of Washington, DC, which cannot smell the stink of its own putrefaction. The powers-that-be doggedly push Republicans to
extract as much wealth as they can from the masses. They give big campaign bucks to Republican legislators and wannabees. IT’S PROTECTION MONEY! [“No new taxes, ever!”] And, why? For the relatively small salary of a legislator…or some dark promises? And, what happens when they have all the power, money and resources, including cheap labor? There will be no country left to govern and exercise power over. America will be more than ripe for conquerors! [They don’t realize that human nature will impel our conquerors to come after the rich, also. They won’t be able to recall Elton John‘s “I’ve Seen that Movie, too”.] When they smell the gun powder at their doors, it will be too late!
President Obama is the self-declared “Warrior for the Middle-Class!” His battle cry is “We Can’t Wait on the Congress!” Our Founding Fathers gave President Obama more powers than we know. He has been hesitant to use the full breath of EXECUTIVE POWER. But, he is tired of the intransigence of the GOP and their ludicrous decision to do no serious business in The Congress until they have a Republican in the Whitehouse. What will they do in January when we inaugurate President Obama for his second term and the 113th Congress begins a more than promising session with Democrats at the helm of the Senate and the House.Then we will begin to realize fully the changes espoused by Barack Obama in the 2008 campaign: HOPE FOR CHANGE IN THE WASHINGTON SYSTEM. Immediately, we will see the fruits of our continued belief in “Yes We Can.” “Change We Can Believe In.” We will be able to still our voices from crying “We Can’t Wait on the Congress” to do the people’s business and not those of lobbyists,the Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity, et als. Satanic forces have given us that ludicrous verdict in Citizens United. The Supremes thought “Money is speech” was to apply to the vast Republican money amassed over the last three decades by the TOP 1% OF THE POPULATION who feebly say that we are jealous of their success and who refuse to pay their fair share in the American cultural experience. Life is more than living in Trump Tower and shopping at Tiffanys. THE 99% STILL HAVE POWER: THE VOTE: MAJORITY AND PLURALITY!
It is inconceivable that more of the country’s tax burden be foisted upon the middle-class and the poor and unfortunate. Yet, there is Paul Ryan on TV with his attractive persona mouthing the evil whispered into his ear by the secret government who believe in two Americas: One for the TOP 1% (and their familiars) and another for the 99% who are the down-trodden masses of hard-working, everyday Americans who do the physical work of making the cogs of the American infrastructure work smoothly. NO, PAUL RYAN, the American people are not jealous of your masters, but, instead, WE DEMAND ECONOMIC EQUALITY! AN AMERICA FOR ALL THE PEOPLE. AN ACHIEVABLE “AMERICAN DREAM” FOR EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF CLASS. Paul Ryan has been schooled in a dark ideology that has forgotten that from the beginning we were formed a Christian nation which banned a government by established religion, but with liberty and justice for all. Our Fore Fathers’ vision of America was not one one of an oligarchy ruled by princes without royal trappings. They were gentlemen farmers who wanted a humble existence for themselves and a future for their new country pregnant with real opportunity for all, with no thought of jealousy of those of us who reach success first.
Paul Ryan, when you appear on TV, your good looks are not enough to distract us from your message which protects the TOP 1% and widens the gulf between the haves and the have-nots. The gulf is so wide now that increasingly American dissidents are coming out of the closet to protest against the global economic system controlled by your masters. They grow bolder each day no matter how often “the man” attacks them with billy clubs and tear gas. Those noxious fumes only inflame our passion to follow Barack Obama to achieve all of the changes he excited us with during the campaign. THE PRESIDENT IS UP AND MOVING….INSPIRING ….LEADING US TO VICTORY IN 2012. Obama will establish a new culture in Washington, DC peopled by legislators and power brokers who are not at war with the people. Barack Obama will change this nation for the good he champions. Only Christ could do more!
SEE BARACK RUN!… using his power to create jobs and lessen the burden of a do-nothing-Congress. People, we must continue to have HOPE for real change in our political and economic systems. It will be the realization of our Fore Fathers’ eternal vision for America. [I guess they saw no wisdom in giving us a Constitutional vehicle to recall those elected to The Congress who become deaf to the people and who follow personal and party agenda.] Be strong, my American brothers. Social change is slow. I know it is hard to endure daily with diminishing resources. Keep your faith in God. Go to church and worship. God is not dead but alive and inspiring good people among us to continue the fight for the changes that will save us from the insular thinking that eluded the last Caesar, when Rome was falling all around him. May God keep safe those who dare to change the system. God bless the American people with the golden promise for which thousands of the 99% shed their blood and died.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

GOP presidential contender Herman Cain may know a lot about pizza, but when it comes to sexual orientation, he knows diddly-squat. In an interview on ABC’s The View, Cain insisted that being gay was a choice – a myth disproven time and again by professional medical associations. Take action now and tell Herman Cain to get his facts straight. [HRC]
