"It's a do or die situation:" Contribute to the Enough is Enough Campaign!



Nicholas Sacca is one of many State Support Leaders for the Support Group for the Indentured Educated Class. He has set up a meter to measure the money we are raising. It's my new campaign entitled, Enough Is Enough! I am going to raise $6000 for the Indentured Educated Class, and every penny will be accounted for. Every dime will go towards helping you as a debtor. So please donate $5 and spread the word. This movement is about you, and I intend to continue raising money so that I can return and run for office and represent the needs of ordinary Americans.



Remember: Fair is Fair!

A PERFECT VIDEO!

Agreed. Isn't the ending awesome? It returns to the shot of her watching Joan of Arc being put on the stake and burned alive.

Really? You want to tie an old, melodramatic rock video to the financial crisis of educated, young adults? Embarrassing.

This video is amazing! As an old timer activist (Equal Rights Amendment 70s and 80's, Take Back the Night 80's, Aids Coalition to Unleash Power -ACT-UP, 90's) I can tell you there is so much money and power involved that we may need to march and take over buildings to turn this around. Electing a democratic congress and then Obama was not enough. Most of my ACT-UP protests, which involved taking over buildings and going to jail, took place under the Clinton Administration. I'll do what I can, young folks, but I'm 51 and the arthritis is kicking in. You will have to get busy.

First off, it's not about educated, YOUNG adults, and if you understood the reference (i.e., that she's watching a video about Joan of Arc, and there is some weight to that personage) then perhaps you'd think differently. So, that said: Yes, REALLY, that's what I'm tying it to in this instance. In others, if you bothered reading this site, are tied to Greek images, to early modern paintings, etc., etc. In a word, it's an image and a good song (we obviously disagree), and it's one of hundreds that I use to convey my message.

C. Cryn Johannsen said...

So, yeah, if you were aware, you'd realize it's not a "rock video," but about a movie. The message of that movie, in my humble opinion, is befitting. But perhaps your site never alludes to 80s images that also allude to Saints fighting? Maybe that's why you're so upset? Perhaps you prefer videos from the 90s?

C. Cryn Johannsen said...

Warwick - that's right. It is inspiring and it's a good video that actually hints at the fact that this crisis doesn't, as Deborah noted, affect merely "young" people. This crisis is an inter-generational problem, and that's one of the others reasons why I chose it. Moreover, I am a product of the 80s, so I guess I should be embarrassed by the fact that I grew up on this stuff and happened to like it. Can I redeem myself by telling you, Deborah, that I played harp and piano and appreciate opera as well?

@Cryn...it is unnecessary for you to "redeem" yourself. You have every right to use whatever material you like. The only reason for embarrassment here is on the part of Deborah, who has no class, so maybe no SL debt ;-)
