Taking Action Against The SCOTUS Decision!

A couple of weeks ago I posted in the Time Out..O/T post an alert from CREDO Action Alert and asked everyone to sign the petition.  The petition was on for a FCC hearing.
The hearing was on internet freedom.  According to CREDO and another outside source the response was overwhelming.  The petition for internet freedom out numbered what the corporations could produce!  Thank You. I hope we just saved “The Planet” and our POV will remain intact.

Today I received another alert concerning the recent SCOTUS decision that fell on us like standing under a tree with a flock of birds roosting in it. It was messy and  didn’t smell too good either.  I am asking every one to please read and sign the petition supporting legislative action to curtail this as soon as possible.  Our very Democracy may depend on it.

Do you remember what Mr. Fluffywuvers faced?  Then sign the petition!

Attention Planet People,

We deserve a country where our elected officials are not bought and paid for by Big Business. But last week’s Supreme Court decision in the case Citizens United vs. FEC overturned over a century of precedent and opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to flow into our political system. Shockingly, the court’s decision may even allow foreign corporations and large multinationals to manipulate our elections.

If we do nothing, this ruling has the potential to undermine the very foundation of our democracy.

Representative Alan Grayson has been one the most forceful voices in responding to this crisis. He has introduced a number of bills as part of a “Save Our Democracy” initiative to blunt some of the worst implications of the Supreme Court’s decision.

I signed a petition to President Obama and the Congressional leadership telling them they must enact Grayson’s strong laws to save our democracy from the pernicious influence of corporate money. Please join me by clicking below.
