Tax Day Protest, 2011, a set on Flickr.

USuncut NYC was one of a number of groups at the steps of Farley Post Office (the historic main post office in NYC) greeting tax payers, reminding them they pay more taxes so Bank of America and other corporations like Exxon Mobil and GE can pay NONE. Here's a set of photos plus there is a short chanting video on YouTube.

"Who will it be, Congress? 16 Corporations or We the People?"

"I pay Taxes / I did NOT cause the Recession -- That is the difference between me and a corporation." Take 3:14 minutes to get inspired and ask your Congressmember: "Who will it be, Congress? 16 Corporations or We the People?" Congressional switchboard is 202-224-3121.

Open Note to President Obama re Economy and Budget Cuts

Note to President Obama re the Economy and Budget cuts:

I am outraged at the cuts to social programs while the wealthy and corporations get tax cuts -- WE get the pain THEY get the gain -- UNFAIR.

Are YOU the President of ALL of us -- or just the wealthy? We the People demand MORE benefits: salary, social programs, education, healthcare. Prove you are the man we voted for and earn our continued support. We the People have given more than enough. Get the money from the wealthy, the corporations and the bloated military spending [who caused the problem in the first place].

Renaming Queensboro Bridge Isn't Groovy

Queens Borough residents are NOT happy about OUR bridge being named after a mediocre mayor. The renaming was pushed on us by Mayor Bloomberg and while the renaming is scheduled for next week, let's still call 311 to protest.

Open Letter to Mayor Bloomberg re Koch Bridge

Left this message at the Contact the Mayor form:

As a Queens Borough resident I am appalled at the renaming of our bridge to honor a mediocre mayor. Koch was never a favorite but in truth I love(d) RFK and don't like the Triboro being renamed. Koch Queensborough Bridge? NOT needed. NOT merited. NOT Kosher.
My thanks to my Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer for voting AGAINST the re-naming.
