Coffee Party USA's curator insight, April 29, 2013 10:42 PM

This is something to check out. This group is seeking to demand more than the smaller tax that was first presented. This would still be a very small sales tax on financial transactions on Wall Street activities. .This is something we need to think about certainly before cutting head start and forcing the elderly to work till they are 70 to draw full benefits for social security.


The people that need the social security program most worked for the very people that are trading the most on Wallstreet. They were used and abused their whole life to get those stock holders rich anyway and everyone knows this. These very wealthy owners normally offer low pay for long hours, little advancement for the average worker, low or no health care or retirement and then want them now to work till they die or are forced to leave early with far smaller draws on the social security system to live on for the rest of their life..Many people will work as long as they can because for most they need the income. Many that quit early at 62 do so because they really are not very healthy or could not find employment for a long time. those that have the options of retiring healthy have more safety nets then Social Security to draw from.

It’s time we stopped giving trademark bullies a free pass | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

Trademarks are funny things. At their best, they’re great: a clever way to incentivise companies to divert some of their profits to preventing fraud and sharp dealing. At their worst, though, they’reterrible; a means for companies to steal the very words out of our mouths through legal bullying.

slecy81's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:29 AM

I think that it is great that Minnesota is pushing to allow gay marriage. I just do not understand all the fuse with it, why does it matter who someone loves? I do think that they should call it a marriage still instead of a civil union. Why can't people be married to who they love rather than call it a civil union?

Michael Holm's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:38 AM

I think its great that Minnesota is proposing a bill that would treat same-sex couples as equal as straight couples. 

Brian Burroughs's comment, May 1, 2013 8:07 PM
They can get married in church. Marriage is a religious/ cultural decision and has nothing to do with the government. That's why they are getting rid of it and just having both hetero and homosexual couple get civil unions.
