UC Student Proposal: Scrap Tuition, Use 'Investment' Strategy →

UC Riverside students have come up with a plan to deal with rising college costs — get rid of tuition altogether.

The proposal would eliminate tuition while students are in school. Instead, students would agree to pay 5 percent of their income for 20 years after they graduate.

This… it’s called “winning.”

And the UC Berkeley president is seriously considering this idea.

Charges against an Occupy Orlando protestor jailed for writing on a city sidewalk with chalk were dropped on Wednesday during a hearing
Orlando police arrested Timothy Osmar on December 22 after he was spotted (via a police surveillance camera) writing on a city sidewalk with piece of chalk.
He then spent THREE WEEKS in jail for violation of a city ordinance without bond.
The city said the time Osmar spent in jail was equivalent to the time he would have served for violating the city ordinance. Therefore, the case was dismissed.
The messages on the sidewalk read “All I want for Christmas is a revolution. OCCUPY.” and “the revolution will not be televised”
In November, Osmar was arrested during Occupy Charlotte near his Fort Mill, South Carolina home for wearing a mask in public.
Timothy is now a free man, and said he wants his chalk back.

Give the man his chalk.

Protestors Converge on Capitol - Jan. 10th, 2012 →

Protesters are promising to keep a watchful eye on the state capital this legislative session. Dozens of Tea Party, Occupy and Awake the State protestors traveled from all over Florida to Tallahassee today to voice their displeasure with lawmakers. As Whitney Ray tells us, no political party is safe from their scrutiny…

The 2012 Legislative Session was gaveled in over the voices of protestors. Just outside the House chamber, Occupy Tallahassee protestors lined the entry way handing out flyers and shouting at lawmakers entering the chamber.

The governor took a short cut around the protestors. Once the governor was inside the House Chamber, the occupiers joined with the Awake the State group.
The two groups of protestors have similar messages.

Awake the State has more union backing and identifies more with Democrats. Occupiers say no party is meeting their needs.

“Democrats and Republicans are nearly the same. They are just different on a few social issues that get blown up by the media,” said Shelby Radcliffe and Occupier from Orlando.

The Tea Party folks are also having a tough time finding lawmakers who hear their concerns and follow through with their promises.

“We put some of these officials in office right now and we expect them to perform. If they don’t perform, we are going to eliminate them,” said Mary Lynn Geisler a Tea Partier from Ocala.

Tea Party members want to see lawmakers improve schools, repeal redlight cameras and cut spending. All the groups say they’ll hold legislators accountable at the ballot box. All the groups are planning to have members at the capitol throughout the 60 day session.
