Russell Simmons is currently in Boston taking part in the Occupy Boston movement.
After this morning’s raid on Zuccotti Park, the birthplace of the Occupy movement, wherein over 100 protesters were arrested, Russell has decided to call an emergency press conference.
During this afternoon’s press conference, Russell is presenting a Constitutional amendment written for a true democracy by a leading Senior Congressman, which bars all but public financing for Federal candidates running for public office.
The amendment goes as follows:
Section 1. All elections for President and members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate shall be publicly financed. No political contributions shall be permitted to any federal candidate, from any other source, including the candidate. No political expenditures shall be permitted in support of any federal candidate, or in opposition to any federal candidate, from any other source, including the candidate. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to abridge the freedom of the press.
Section 2. The Congress shall, by statute, provide limitations on the amounts and timing of the expenditures of such public funds and provide criminal penalties for any violation of this section.
Section 3. The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Section 4. This article shall be inoperative unless it is ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by conventions in the several States, as provided in the Constitution.
This is the time when the system fights back against your right to peacefully assemble around the cause of transparent democracy, to make your voices heard.
Re-Occupy and pass this amendment.
Joe Paterno is good in my book. A former defensive coordinator for Penn State, Jerry Sandusky, was charged with child molestation and endangerment. Paterno went to his bosses & reported the events as they were told to him in 2002. Yes, he probably could have done more morally but because of him, police, executive staff & parents got involved . What more could he have done?. He didn’t witness anything. He could only tell police what someone else told him they saw. Even if he went to the proper authorities, he would not have been much more helpful then what he was already due to the fact that he witnessed nothing. The man who witnessed the crime should be buried under gravel for life. He did nothing. He told an old man and that old man went to the authorities. Our prayers go out to the victims of course. Now the facts are, the child was not an athlete, the man accused was not an employee, the incident was not a football related incident. The crime just happened to happen in the sports lockerroom shower. Joe Paterno reported it as soon as he heard. Unfortunately, the people he told were in bed with the accused. Sad but true!!! What could a 75 year old man do @ that point except hope that the authorities he told would handle it from there. If Joe did know more about the crimes and did nothing then God will punish him severly and he should be punished. But if he is found to have done all he could, let’s let this man live the rest of his life in Peace! God Bless the children, the victims and their families. We pray for their comfort and relief.
