Re: Palestine and Israel. I am extraordinarily supportive of and grateful to you for your leadership in most areas, but this is one where I see you continuing America's disconnect with reality. Even most Jews worldwide do not support Israel's occupation of Palestinian land. It's fine that you don't believe Palestinian recognition by The UN would help the peace process. I disagree, and so does most of the world. Israel will never negotiate in good faith with a non-state. Maybe they will with a fully recognized one. Regardless, we shouldn't have vetoed something like this, which honestly does not affect our National Security in any way, unless maybe to enhance it if we offer some support to the Palestinian people's dream. And now, when The UN is recognizing Palestine in the only way it can, through its agencies, we are going to cut funding to UNESCO? UNESCO which funds women's education in Afghanistan and Tsunami Early Warning systems? To Punish Palestine??? This makes no sense. Mr. President, you are far more intelligent than this.

I haven't read everything you have posted, but I have read a lot of it. Basically I am agreeing.
I am writing some letters myself. Often hand written because I am fuddy duddy enough to think that email is too easily discarded.
I somewhat like the occupy wall Street or other streets in other towns.
I watch stocks. I notice how Netflix was brought to its knees by consumers.
Why is no one mentioning giving Citibank (Bank of America?) and others a consumer shutdown? Cancel the credit cards, change banks and there are many bad ones and good ones to choose from! Boycott those big banks. Find a local one.
Sometimes I think only consumerism and the almighty dollar will speak to the Conservative money power. That is how I see it. And most of the "Middle Class Poor" has plenty of thousands of dollars in debt, at least, to transfer. Just a thought.

A Whole lot of people are moving their money to Credit Unions. BofA has even arrested protesters trying to withdraw their money. There is a call for a nationwide general strike tomorrow. We'll see how it goes...

Nothing wrong with hand writing. Thank you for doing it!

If i miss a link involving arresting people for withdrawing money from B of A...send it to me. Sometimes I get so busy I miss things.
Years ago, in Florida, I moved my Mom's big account to another bank from Bank of A who I grew to hate. She was 92 or so and the clerks were telling her how she should not have a daughter deciding for her, never mind the info on statements, which Mom couldn't totally understand . They were calling after her, saying how much they would miss her...as we left the bank. Slime ball city! really BAD.
I don't have enough time to get into what else Citibank owns or bank of A, though I try to keep up on it.
Seriously..all they will understand is the money. These banks are huge. But the normal consumer can just RUIN their quarterly reports. Even investors won't like it. To me, this is the most promising form of protest.
