Funny or Die

Have strong feelings about the greed of some of our financial institutions?

Watch this clever video directed by award winning Director Ron Howard called, Heidi Montag says no to plastic.

Here is another video from Funny or Die with a similar message featuring a whole host of famous faces.

And speaking of ex Presidents, someone sent me this quote a few weeks ago given my own problems with a Bank.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up round the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continents their fathers conquered."
Thomas Jefferson said this in 1802. Imagine.

The more things change in the World the more they stay the same. Maybe we need to go back into the archives and find out what else Jefferson had to say...he clearly knew what he was talking about.

However, what holds true I guess is that no matter what year we are living in or where we happen to be, we, 'the people', have the power when we use it wisely, courageously, proactively and with one voice. We just need to start saying, 'No, that is not acceptable', a bit more loudly and more often in our daily lives. A wonderful example of this is the latest post on Gappa.

Wednesday is bright and sunny for me, a gorgeous Autumn day hope you have a great one where you are.
