Hilo action Idea Occupy Wall St.

Sunday, October 30th, 2011
Action idea:
Short statement for sign on at this Monday’s Merrill Lynch gathering (and via email if someone can set it up for adding names) for delivery (BY ALL PRESENT) the following Monday Nov. 7th 4PM sharp to Hilo Merrill Lynch manager Art Miho. Let the press know this is planned so education and drama builds.
“We demand that Merrill Lynch remove it’s $55 Trillion in risky-bet derivatives from Bank of America FDIC tax payer insured accounts. It’s a scam to stick the tax payer for another Bailout if and when the risky-bet derivatives fail. We will not Bail Out Merrill Lynch or Bank of America again. NO MORE BANKSTER BAILOUTS!”

Add your name too: Email me to add your name.

1% and Wall St. Class Warfare against the 99%

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Aloha Kakou,

Today I learned about a gated community in Hawaii called Kukio, first makai entrance north of the Kona airport. I was told Low End homes go for $8 million. 1/2 to 1 acre lots have sold there for up to $30 million. There is a home in there that cost $169 million, though I understand for lower tax purposes is said to be $20 million. Talk about the 1% scheming to avoid paying their fair share. I’d drive to Kona to join in protest at the Kukio highway entrance or on the King’s trail that is a public sidewalk running through all those developments along the South Kohala/Kona coast. First amendment rights apply on the King’s trail, as well as the shoreline/beaches. Anybody for researching at the tax office who the owners of the approximately 200 homes at Kukio are? Merrill Lynch is said to have built 3 homes in the $25 million range on the Kona coast, perhaps at Kukio or nearby 4 Seasons resort.

Holiday season is coming up. Good time to protest the 1% when the more than 50 –half billion dollar each –private jets are parked at the Kona airport for little more than what it costs us to park our car overnight at the airport. Talk about the 1% not paying their fair share again
The latest bank scam that is coming down is this. The Big Investment Banks are each transferring tens of TRILLIONS of dollars in derivatives (risky bets) into FDIC government insured accounts in their commercial banks. For example –Merrill Lynch (now owned by Bank of America) is transferring $55 TRILLION OF DERIVATIVES into Bank of America FDIC accounts. FDIC bank accounts were designed to  insure safe savings accounts not risky bet derivatives. If Merrill Lynch and the 1% make money on derivatives they pocket the profits. If they lose, they transfer the loss to us — the 99% taxpayers. We need to tell Merrill Lynch, and those in Washington that are charged with regulating these Banksters, –TAKE YOUR DERIVATIVES OUT OF FDIC ACCOUNTS. WE WILL NOT BAIL YOU OUT AGAIN!



Kanawai Mamalahoe – Law of the Splintered Paddle

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Mahalo to Laulani Teale for sharing  this.  She asks to practice aloha always and do what is pono.

It seems to me that the State of Hawaiʻi (who “enshrined” the kānāwai in its con…stitution, Article 9 sec 10) may have forgotten that this law is specifically to protect people from GOVERNMENT abuse…

Arrest the Banksters and their bought politicians

Police Are Arresting the Wrong

It’s the Wall St. Banksters and their corporation bought politicians (at all levels of government) that should be in jail.  Together, for power and greed, they are looting the public treasury and people’s life savings, moving jobs overseas, pushing people out of their homes, destroying the environment, and waging imperial wars for control of oil and other global resources.

The crimes of Wall St. and Washington are increasing.  The Big banks, who already received $Billions in bailouts, are now each transferring tens of TRILLIONS of dollars of their derivatives (risky bets) from their investment banks into FDIC government insured accounts.  If  (more accurately – WHEN)) their investments fail, the tax payer will again be left holding the bag to bail out the Big banks.  When the banks and 1% make money they pocket the profits.  When they lose money, they make the 99% taxpayers bail them out.  It’s time we tell Wall St. and Washington — NO MORE BAILOUTS!  It’s time to…
Jail the Banksters & their Washington Cronies!

Volunteer Farm Day –Sat. Nov. 5th

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

Aloha Kakou,

We normally have a volunteer farm day and pot luck on the first Sat. of the month but we have been remiss lately with so much peace and justice action going on.  Much of the food grown at Malu Aina is given away freely to people in need and unfortunately, the need is growing.

We are planning a volunteer farm day for Sat. Nov. 5th 8-11AM with a pot luck to follow.  The farm project is likely planting Uala (sweet potato) and Kalo (taro).  There will likely be some taro huli available to take home and plant in your yard.

Come prepared for rain though we always hope for sun.  A hat, sun glasses, rubber boots, rain jacket, and gloves are helpful. There will be jobs available for all ages and skills.
Email or call if you need directions.
With gratitude,

Jim Albertini
