So here we are, it's May 2012, and while there is much white noise coming from all the various organizations and movements busy doing their own thing, in their own way, much of it will be heard only by the activist crowd all ready engaged in the political process. What is yet to be determined is whether this will be another average year not only for voter turnout, but for voter knowledge, and passion on the great issues before us all this November. In some form everyone of the 99% has skin in the issues and consequences of this election cycle, at the local, state, and federal level.
Last night I have to admit I was a little surprised when I learned that HR 347 had quietly passed both the House and Senate known as, “ The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011”. Somehow, and not by accident in this American Democracy which was born out of protest and civil disobedience, and in which the People through that process have struggled to obtain resolution to both majority and minority grievance’s and civil rights issues, this legislation is making an insidious path to the President’s desk for his signature.
