Potentially 60 deaths from the GM ignition failure which GM knew about - if I put a bomb on my car and sold it to you - and then it went off when you hit a bump ... can I set up a compensation fund for your family instead of going to jail? (what percentage of my income should that be after I've killed your little ones? - will you settle for 2?) Hey executives... we all have jobs and we know how that works (shit can't roll uphill) ... you can fire as many people as you want but we know they were "working as directed" and probably weren't even privy to the information you were piecing together and sliding under a carpet far away from their paygrades. I know GM is a government pet project and a stock market favorite ... but if they can get away with knowingly putting hundreds of lives at risk (how many of you drive around with your baby in that backseat after you've carefully fastened that little body into her car seat touched those little fingers and kissed her little cheek now wondering if this drive could be her last and there is a failure hidden away in the machinery) I ask - who are TERRORISTS in this world -? Does killing for the ideology of a particular god absolve you - in this case are those who kill for profit and the ideology of the mighty dollar (Wall Street's particular brand of God) any less guilty than those who kill for some other god?

Pull your stock in GM (or write a letter to your mutual fund urging them to pull it) and donate it to the victims - send Corporate Terrorists a message.

Perfect chance to go after our cause and bring attention to corporate personhood and double standards corporations are separate under the law... we are unequal and the citizenry is not just sitting at the back of the bus ...we are walking behind it! Are we occupying WS or not?

Nope - but it really should - if only to be properly recycled = full circle.

Let's coin this - it is what is is and when it smells like Corporate Terrorism it probably is.. now how about those bail outs... and the financial cliff (holding an entire country and economy hostage)

Corporate Terrorism !

Of course - but you can send them a message - we're no longer playing this game - MAKE WAVES !!!!! Don't remain silent while they wage war on our way of life... I urge you to speak loudly and voice your opinions - get them heard above the roar of the corporate news. Are we going to bend over for the rise of the Corporate Oligarchy. If the candle (once a torch) of freedom is going to go out let it be loudly with resistance. If we throw enough fuel on it... perhaps we can keep it going. Or you can let if poof out without even the whisper that it was ever there.

Where is the outrage? Where are the protesters? Where are the Boston Strong when families are killed for profit? Where are the charities to help them through their losses? How is corporate terrorism different from street terrorism? I see when it is planned in a board room instead of an apartment it is not noteworthy?
