Below is a email that CREDO sent to us, EyeOnCitrus.Com. We firmly support the people who are demonstrating against the Corporate greed of the major financial conglomerates that control the Nation along with the military-industrial complex. Please sign the petition.

Not a single banker has gone to jail for crimes that lead to the financial meltdown. But now over 1,000 protesters have been arrested in the inspiring Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City.
The occupation of Wall Street has inspired a nationwide movement in the spirit of Wisconsin.
But there has been a powerful backlash against peaceful protesters who are using both their right to public assembly and tactics of nonviolent civil disobedience to call attention to the fact that our government has bailed out the wealthiest Americans but has done little to help middle and working class Americans who have lost their jobs and had their homes foreclosed on.
The protest is building momentum with a huge solidarity march today that CREDO members, progressive organizations and labor are joining. However the very existence of Occupy Wall Street could be endangered by strong-arm NYPD tactics aimed at intimidating protesters and ending their three week stand against the big Wall Street banks.
We urge Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to respect the Occupy Wall Street protesters’ constitutional right to peaceful assembly. You can, too, at the link below.

  2. Special interests groups get us involved in wars that are purely beneficial to the military-industrial complex, Vietnam was one such conflict, remember all those lost for the sake of a lie and capitalism.

    “Carved on these walls is the story of America , of a
    continuing quest to preserve both democracy and decency, and to
    protect a national treasure that we call the American dream.”

    Something to think about: Most of the surviving parents of
    the dead are now deceased themselves. There are 58,267 names now
    listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.

    The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken
    from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It
    is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.

    The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon , of North
    Weymouth , Mass. , listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as
    having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall
    with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon
    III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.

    There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.
    39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.

    The largest age groups, 8,283 were just 19 years old, 33,103
    were 18 years old.

    12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.

    5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.

    One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.

    997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam ..

    1,448 soldiers were killed on their last scheduled day in Vietnam ..

    31 sets of brothers are on the Wall.

    Thirty one sets of parents lost two of their sons.

    54 soldiers on the Wall attended Thomas Edison High School in
    Philadelphia ….wonder why so many from one school?

    8 Women are on the Wall — nursing the wounded.

    244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the
    Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall.

    Beallsville , Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons.

    West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the
    nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall.

    The Marines of Morenci – They led some of the scrappiest high
    school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper
    town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed
    roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses
    along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the ApacheNational Forest .
    And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci’s mining families,
    the nine
    graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps.
    Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.

    The Buddies of Midvale – LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom
    Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive
    streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They
    lived only a few
    yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball
    field. And they all went to Vietnam . In a span of 16 dark days in
    late 1967, all three would be killed. LeRoy was killed on Wednesday,
    Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy ‘s assassination.
    Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot
    dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl HarborRemembrance Day.

    The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31,
    1968 — 245 deaths.

    The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 —
    2,415 casualties were incurred.

    For many Americans who read this they will only see the
    numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the
    war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we
    feel the
    pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass
    away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends,
    fathers, husbands, wife’s, sons and daughters.

    There are no noble wars, just noble warriors…

    “That we never forget”
