Tax Rap – from TFOC Raise the Roots Conference
Lets Relaxes on Taxes
Taxes, Taxes make the TeaParty complain,
Taxes, Taxes, hold-up, let me explain.
Taxes, Taxes make all states grow,
Gives us roads and bridges that get us where we got to go.
Taxes, Taxes many wealthy don’t pay,
Taxes, Taxes we are just here to say…
They educate our kids, they care for the needy,
They light up our homes, there’s no need to be greedy.
Taxes, Taxes, we just need to be fair!
So Yo! 1% Pay your Fair Share.
We Are Florida: A Collection of Memories
Let’s not discount the importance of shifting discourse as an important victory. If we can move discourse, we can move a lot of other things.
We can’t think of Occupy as distinct and alone. It’s a continuity of things that had been happening. We need to just jump in and build the relationships. When you jump in and get involved, you build trust with those involved.
The Occupy movement is our movement. It is pushing forward the issues that we care about. We need to dive right in, make it live, make it powerful, and make it our movement.
- Michael York
Issue-based groups working with Occupy should be honest about what their issue is and how it fits in with the broader 99% movement. As long as that narrative connects, it can become a symbiosis.
- Will York
Occupy accomplished a hell of a lot in a relatively short amount of time, especially compared with big, expensive national campaigns. It’s incumbent upon us to put in the time and energy to work with this movement.
