Abother video which used to be on YouTube used to say about itself:
Keith Olbermann Calls on Mayor of Oakland to Fire Police Chief or Resign
Special Comment: Keith calls out Jean Quan, mayor of Oakland, for her use of 500 police officers in a pre-dawn raid Tuesday morning, followed by more tear-gas bombs, rubber bullets and bean-bag rounds on Tuesday night. Quan, herself once a victim of the Oakland police’s bullying, now “is the bully,” Keith says. He calls on Quan to dismiss acting Police Chief Howard Jordan and allow protesters to return to their location, “or, having betrayed everything she’d supported and all those who have supported her, she must resign.”

Nomi Prins | Ten Reasons Not to Bank On (or With) Bank of America. Nomi Prins, Truthout: “There is no shortage of hatred for the biggest banks. Indeed, the Occupy Wall Street movement is leading a national revolution against these Byzantine, powerful Goliaths for the economic devastation they have caused. This makes it difficult to choose the worst of the bunch. That said, a strong case can be made that Bank of America deserves the title of the nation’s most despised bank. Here are ten reasons to take your money out of Bank of America – and park it at a credit union or community bank near you”: here.
Glenn Greenwald: Book Excerpt From “With Liberty and Justice for Some”. Glenn Greenwald, Metropolitan Books: “As a litigator who practiced for more than a decade in federal and state courts across the country, I’ve long been aware of the inequities that pervade the American justice system. The rich enjoy superior legal representation and therefore much better prospects for success in court than the poor”: here.
Lessons From the Original Occupation: Madison’s Sheriff Dave Mahoney. Mary Bottari, Truthout: “On February 11, 2011, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker introduced a bill that would limit the collective bargaining rights of public employees, require 100 percent voter participation in union recertification and end the state’s practice of withholding and reimbursing union dues. The bill was perceived as a deathblow to public-employee unions and prompted massive, sustained and peaceful protests inside and outside the Wisconsin State Capitol in the winter of 2011”: here.
Someone Got Rich and Someone Got Sick: Nature Is the 99 Percent, Too. Chip Ward, TomDispatch: “If your child has asthma and it’s getting worse, then news about the White House’s recent retreat on ozone (that is, smog) standards for the air over your city wasn’t exactly cause for cheering. Thank our environmental president for that, but mainly of course the Republicans, who have been out to kneecap the Environmental Protection Agency since the 2010 election results came in. We may be heading for an anything-blows environmental future, even though it couldn’t be more logical to assume that whatever is allowed into the air will sooner or later end up in us”: here.
