Justice For Danny Brown $149.02

Today, I have to go down to the Municipal Court and pay my fine and court costs of $149 for “ posting” of for stickers and Julia Bates WANTED posters all over downtown, surrounding the Lucas County Courthouse, where Julia Bates, Lucas County Persecutor, holds the fate of Danny Brown within her judgment, blocking his exoneration and access to civil compensation for over 19 years of wrongful imprisonment.  Ms. Bates has stated that at this point it’s really about the . Maybe she should run for treasurer rather than prosecutor.  As an act of poetic in the face of her intransigence, I will pay my fine and court costs with bills marked with “ For .com”, as pictured below:

  1. Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has started a campaign to amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United. It’s called Stamp Stampede. You can buy rubber stamps that say “Corporations are Not People Money is not Free Speech”, and “Stamp Money out of Politics”. I’ve been stamping every bill that comes into my possession and then using them to pay for my purchases. Low information voters[?} seem baffled, but some do get it. The stamped bills will be seen by over 700 persons before being taken out of circulation. The only time someone refused to accept a stamped bill was at the Post Office.
    Thank you for your inspiring subversive action!
