Occupy Congress Until Obama Jobs Bills Are Brought to A Vote

At some point we will wake up
At some point we will see that direct action is essential
At some point we will Occupy Congress
and for relaxation
conduct a vigil outside the Supreme Court
That is my hope
That is my belief
Nancy cannot do it on her own
John Boehner is not being moved yet
What will have to happen to break the jam
Here is what I believe
Boehner remains the key
He cannot now be trusted to do what he says
should he say he will compromise
We need to Occupy Congress with the following demand
Place the Obama jobs bills on the floor for an up or down vote
If the Republican majority stands with the Tea Party
so be it
But if the whole house passes these measures we will have
broken the jam
So the demand is
Bring the bills to the floor
And if Occupy is listening
If people ready to act are hearing 
then act
Go to the Congress and say
Obama jobs bills to the floor for a vote
before July 4

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
