I can't find words for how pleased I am that Glenn was chased off the air. Congratulations to Color of Change, Spocko, and everyone involved. It is a huge victory and important sign that the left can take down a big guy, at least in certain circumstances.
The next step is to go after Fox itself.
Some businesses play Fox without having thought about it at all, and may not know how divisive and dangerous Fox is. Turn Off Fox will help you work with others in your area (and across the country) to identify places that play Fox, ask them to change the channel, and explain why they should. Read below the fold...

In my limited experience, emergent parties lack what I call the discipline of winning. Their members are usually well informed on issues, but lack the knowledge of nuts and bolts get-out-the-vote operations. So here is my list of things that every local emergent party committee should have in order to win, if not this year, then by 2016.
Every local committee must have a chair, which they already do. This chair must be able to recruit and delegate. Read below the fold...

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...

Protesters Rally Outside Health Forum
Supporters of a single-payer system of health care used a special White House forum to send a message to the man in the Oval Office.
"Barack Obama said it at an AFL-CIO meeting in 2003 that he was an advocate of the single-payer health care system," said Dr. Deb Richter, who helped organize the protest. "He said we had to take back the White House and take back the Senate and take back the House, which they've done. Now it's time to get the single-payer bill he promised." Read below the fold...

Plan Congressional Visits During Presidents’ Day Recess
Congressman John Conyers re-introduced HR 676 into the 111th Congress on January 26th. The bill keeps the same number, HR 676, as it has since it was first introduced in 2003.
Because this is a new Congress, representatives who co-sponsored HR 676 in the 110th Congress need to sign on again. Plus we need to get many more.
Please make an appointment to see your representative over the Presidents’ Day recess that begins Feb. 13 and lasts until Feb. 22. Representatives will be in their home districts, and we need to ask them to sign on to and speak up for HR 676. Read below the fold...
