    • #MicCheckWallSt Money Drop

      On Valentine's Day #MicCheckWallSt sent Seattle a message... on the face of hundreds of dollar bills. "Money can't buy love... but it can buy speech?!" the bills challenged in an effort to bring light to Citizens United—the Supreme Court ruling which declared money as speech, corporations as people, and effectively paved the way for unlimited corporate political influence through monetary contributions. This Fourth of July #MicCheckWallSt is organizing another money drop in Seattle with bills that will state "Money as Speech Silences Us All. End Citizens United" and as the bills go back into general circulation they’ll pass through the hands and minds of tens of thousands of Americans. To encourage the amplification of this action, #MicCheckWallSt has put together a template so anyone anywhere can organize a coordinated money drop. Visit www.miccheckwallst.org for more info.

            • Newt Gingrich Campaign Resurgence Funded by Secretive Coterie of Super PACS, Wealthy Donors

              DemocracyNow.org - With the Iowa caucus less than two weeks away and the Republican presidential race still up for grabs, Democracy Now! takes in an in-depth look at the state of politics and money and how last year's U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has altered campaign fundraising since it opened the floodgates for unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns. Several recent exposes reveal how Newt Gingrich has skirted campaign finance rules to raise millions of dollars in unlimited donations from billionaire backers and big industry. McClatchy Newspapers recently reported Gingrich helped bankroll his resurrection as a candidate by exploiting a gap in federal campaign finance laws to create a political money machine that raised $54 million over five years. Meanwhile the Center For Public Integrity has published new details on how Gingrich has the backing of two so-called super PACs that raise unlimited donations, but legally must operate independently of the campaign. We speak with Peter Stone, a reporter with Center for Public Integrity who has covered lobbying and campaign finance issues for the past two decades, and with Greg Gordon, investigative reporter for McClatchy's Washington, D.C. Bureau.

                      Download the audio to this video free! http://soundcloud.com/dj-symptoms/occupy-logic/download There's a lot of info crammed in here, you kinda have to decide right off the bat if you're listening to the music or reading throughout the video. I made a song, then added some scratching, next thing I knew there was a video and a bunch of facts. I had the idea because Americans are unwilling to think about anything that isn't presented in a way that entertains them. Hopefully this will be entertaining enough to get these facts a little more well-understood in our country.
