Let’s take a day that is all about consumption and make it our own, and let’s make it loud and clear that we will not support the corporations that destroyed our economy and undermined our Republic.Instead of a “Buy Nothing Day” we’ll have a “Buy Local Day.” Instead of buying a bunch of useless crap, let’s instead go out and help the poor. Volunteer at soup kitchens and host toy drives and do the other charitable things that the government refuses to do. A season of giving instead of a season of buying.

In TWO WEEKS – there will be a vote in Ohio which will have significant national implications. The people of Ohio will get the chance to repeal a law signed into law by a Republican governor and legislature that will effectively eliminate unions. Not only is this their attempt to prevent the working class American from having fair pay with fair benefits – this is a way for them to break the back of Democrats.

If you’re in OHIO or know anyone who lives in OHIO or care about the labor movement which by the way is an ideological cousin to the #OccupyWallStreet movement against the 1%….then share the news and let’s see if we can get out the vote.

Because – YOUR VOTES MATTER.

NYTimes: ERIC DASH and NELSON D. SCHWARTZ: In Cautious Times, Banks Flooded With Cash (10.24.1)

Bankers have an odd-sounding problem these days: they are awash in cash.

“If you had more money than you knew what to do with, would you want more?” asks Don Sturm, a bank owner in Colorado. <..snip..>they are trying to discourage some depositors from parking that cash with them. With fewer attractive lending and investment options for that money, it is harder for the banks to turn it around for a healthy profit. <..snip..>What’s more, the profitability of each new loan has shrunk.  Normally, banks earn healthy profits by taking in deposits and then investing them or lending them out at substantially higher interest rates than what they pay savers. But that traditional banking model has broken down. <..snip..>The banks are also earning less on the deposits left over to invest. <..snip..>In other words, what bankers call the spread is being squeezed – they are making less money on each dollar they hold.
