    and his third idea of a financial transaction tax happens to be one of the petitions languishing on the WH petition site with too few signatures.  It is #8 in this diary on petitions that could use some help.

    In addition, his first suggestion is somewhat mirrored in petition #16 in that diary, while his second, about investigating the banksters is aligned with #19 in the diary.
    Perhaps one thing "the left", especially those who can't be in the streets for whatever reason, could be doing is echoing some of those good ideas in arenas like the WH petition site. But apparently even that is too much work, since some of those ideas have only a few dozen people supporting them, instead of the minimum 5,000 required to get any notice at all from the adinistration.

    from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
