|Commander Leah Bolger committed the crime of interrupting a public congressional hearing of the Super Committee to deliver a message from the 99 percent: End the wars and tax the rich to fix the deficit. Because of her 45-sec transgression, Commander Bolger now faces a court trial April 12, where she could receive a maximum jail sentence of six months. Bolger, 54, intends to plead guilty and use her court appearance to draw the connection between America's deficit debacle and the three-quarters-of-a-trillion-dollar defense budget we, as voting taxpayers, spend as a base-mark for failed and unending military ventures overseas. Bolger has no illusions about what Americans are up against: a corporate-run military machine that she says 'is so big and complicated and intertwined with the government and Congress and the media that I don't know where you can start unraveling the knot.'|
