Yesterday the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to support Move to Amend’s resolution
calling on Congress to amend the Constitution to clearly establish that only living persons — not corporations –are endowed with constitutional rights and that money is not the same as free speech. The vote makes Los Angeles the first major city in the U.S. to call for an end to all corporate constitutional rights!
In a press conference after the vote, Council President Eric Garcetti stated:
“I want to thank Move to Amend and this entire coalition that has come together… Every struggle to amend the constitution began as just a group of regular Americans who wanted to end slavery, who thought women should vote, who believed that if you’re old enough to be drafted, you should be old enough to vote. These are how American amendments move forward from the grassroots when Americans say enough is enough.
We’re very proud to come together and send a message but more than that, this becomes the official
position of the City of Los Angeles, we will officially lobby for this. I also chair a group which oversees all the Democratic mayors and council members in the country and we’re going to share this with all our 3,000 members and we hope to see this start here in the west and sweep the nation until one day we do have a constitutional amendment which will return the power to the people.”

Is Obama fixing to betray Wall Street in the middle of its war against the middle class? Or is he just laying out a thick line of cow dung so as to position himself as a champion of the people just before his election.
Let’s see. Obama has raised more money from Wall Street than all the Republican candidates for president combined. He continues to enact or turn a blind eye to polices that allow Wall Street to rape and pillage the middle class. For example, Obama recently signed into law job outsourcing and income redistributing treaties with South Korea, Panama and Colombia. When I write “income redistributing,” I mean the money is sucked out of the middle class by the rich folks to fuel Wall Street. So it’s not like Obama is serious about his jobs bill, or he wouldn’t have signed a deal to kill jobs in the USA. It appears he just wants to make it look like the Republicans are against creating jobs for working Americans, and he is, although he couldn’t give a rats rear end about that.
So the evidence suggests Obama’s call for helping the middle class is a lot of hot air. Anyway, that’s my take on the subject. There is a story below about Obama and the middle class that’s fairly interesting, but don’t be misled.
