According to Media Bistro, Frontline is hiring.

Ask Frontline to hire Robert Parry of Consortium News. It won't happen, but it is good to keep the pressure up and remind them what we want from reporters. Read below the fold...

How to break up the big banks

Chris Bowers is absolutely correct:

We are going to have to break up the big banks ourselves by getting people, organizations, companies and governments to move their money (check out the Move Your Money campaign). It may be a long slog, but right now it seems like the only way.

If you have not already done so, do a search on your zip code and see what you find. You might also consider emailing the Move Your Money link to your city council or county board. The beauty of this campaign is that Bankster lobbyists are powerless to stop if. If you take your money they don't have it, it is as simple as that. Read below the fold...

Peter Schurman for Governor of California

Vote for Peter Schurman in the Democratic primary in the California gubernatorial race.

Our health care system is a mess. The problem is the health insurance companies. They are parasites, sucking up massive sums of money, and giving us paperwork, rate hikes, and denials of coverage in return. Although President Obama's new health care law reins in some of their worst abuses, it also perpetuates the problem, by forcing us to buy their inadequate products, and offering no other option.
