Removed By Police Sunday............

FIVE VFP MEMBERS OCCUPY NATIONAL ARCHIVES BUILDING

On Tuesday morning, September 23, 7:30am, at the front of the National Archives Building on Constitution Ave. in Washington, D.C., five military veterans will risk arrest as they climb a 9-foot retaining fence and occupy a 35-foot high ledge to raise a 22x8 foot banner stating, "DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. ARREST BUSH AND CHENEY: WAR CRIMINALS!"

Is There a Lawyer In the House?

I am travelling to DC next week to draw attantion to a series of Medicaid Rules Changes proposed by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS). I have previously diaried one of the Rules Changes on e Pluribus Media here and my proposed action here. I will be diarying the issue again one more time prior to leaving for DC. It should appear on an epm station in your hometown (as well as your state's progressive blog site) within the next 48 hours.

Now, I need to ask for some help from you. I plan to drop in, cameraman in tow, to several less than friendly MSM offices while I am in DC to ask them why they are not covering this story. Is there a lawyer in the house who can help me if I either get arrested, or if my camcorder is confiscated? I am not wealthy and so I must ask for your pro bono assistance if at all possible.

John Edwards: They aren't going to just give their power away

John Edwards:

This isn't about petty politics or good intentions.

Corporate greed and influence in Washington are stealing our children's future.

The moral test of our generation is whether we're going to allow this broken system to go on without a fight or take on corporate greed and stand up for the middle class and American jobs before it's too late.

They aren't going to just give their power away.

Saving the middle class is going to be an epic battle, and that's a fight I was born for.
