No hands? Just you over there at Goldman Sachs? We don't need or want you.

Second, digest this: There is no free lunch in the absolute worlds of physics, economics and politics. You get what you put in. That's right, there's no such thing as a perpetual motion machine or a wind-up Obama that produces change without an ounce of fuel.

Is it the Internet's virtual world that has somehow convinced us that words are enough to get us what we want?

Yes, it was easy to be seduced by the election narrative of the new transformative leader. But, now it's time to grow up, dear parents.
Blogging and moaning on websites this piece included is nothing compared to forces so powerful they put the fix in for their con with nearly every politician and agency in Washington, DC.

Do we still think we're going to get fair health care reform by calling our congress people? A few hands? You over there, still wearing the Yes We Can t-shirt, you're not excused. Listen up.

You want change? Okay, sign petitions, write the letters, make the phone calls, send the emails, blogg and moan online, but don't expect any of that to work unless...

You're also willing to vote with your feet and deny our corrupted system of the money and, therefore, the power that enables our being abused.

Here's a swift, legal, crafty action you can take today, tomorrow, and forever until we get change.

Deny Big Banking an important revenue stream by eschewing their oh so easy and convenient payment system of credit and debit cards. Instead, opt for the more cumbersome payment method called Cash.

If you haven't heard about this yet you are forgiven. It's new and taking subversive market action is not yet in the lexicon of virtual world protests. Visit: to learn more.

Short story, just by using more cash and less plastic, en masse, we can deny Big Banking & Finance billions of dollars a year. And, if the movement gets big enough, it will send a message to all those who derive their funding and power on the backs of workers and citizens.

By using more and more cash, we can send a clear and punitive message. If the system refuses to administer justice, then we the people must.

If the system won't punish Wall Street, the Federal Reserve and the now way, way too big to fail banks, it's our job.
