Please see this proposed list of demands from Occupy Wall Street.
At the bottom of the list there is a request for help:
NOTE 4: There needs to be a very well researched and concise addendum that contains a list of the top 50 corporate crimes / harmful actions during the past 15 years. This ought to really blow people away and will help increase support both on the ground in DC and in living rooms across America as the story unfolds. We can't assume everyone knows why these demands are necessary. We must demonstrate. Read below the fold...

It's dry as a tinder box down here after 2+ years of continuous drought. The 35 mph winds on the west (alas, the dry) side of T.S. Lee were too much yesterday and things spun out of control. Fire fighting and emergency resources are stretched mighty thin at the moment. Several new fires cropped up today to join those from yesterday, mostly uncontained at this point. We have friends and family in Bastrop County (just east of Austin) who escaped a 16-mile long fire physically unharmed, but lost their homes and all their belongings other than what they could shove in their cars.

Looks like the Macondo well site is still leaking. BP sent a fleet of 40 shrimp boats out to lay boom around the site this week.

At present our government is conducting a giant experiment in Vermont and Illinois, which I'm betting will eventually demonstrate, "not".
From The Daily Mail:
"Despite the revelations the NRC and industry bosses consider the leaks a public relations problem, not a public health threat. "

Of course it never went anywhere, and the threat continues.
Never mind, we must pay attention to the "Debt Crisis", or Rick Perry, or whatever. Read below the fold...

Meh, for me today it was 12 hrs with one client and four more with another on the west coast later before I can sleep, so this is going to be short. I'd like to fill the rest in as I respond in the comments, reading what you all have to say. But the question is: what supplements do you take? Vitamins? Oils, cremes, salves, teas, and any other delivery device that doesn't come from Big Pharma or Big Ag, that helps you feel better? Why do you take them? How did you learn about them? Why do you know they work? What scientific-standard of proof can you offer they do, if only in your case? Read below the fold...

See here. It's preliminary data so I'm sure there are a million reasons why we'll be told to ignore it. Still three more dead babies a week is three more dead babies a week.
And by posting this I don't mean to imply that it's somehow worse to kill Americans. Just that the fallout (pun intended) is likely much worse than we have been or will be told. Read below the fold...
