Next week I will look again at public private partnership policy and how it is not what those promoting it say it is. Maryland has a very corporate government and is big on these partnerships so whenever I get a venue to speak to a large group about why they are bad-----the big hook comes out and snatches my voice away!
I created my organization and website Citizens Oversight Maryland with the daily blog in 2010---this is when the Democratic voters saw elections were rigged and the same Reagan/Clinton global people and policies were being installed----WITH A SUPER-MAJORITY OF DEMOCRATS AND A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT. So, we knew then it wasn't the Republicans fault---neo-liberals are Republicans. Since then I am pleased to hear citizens all across Baltimore and Maryland say to me----I KNOW YOU. This means my voice and message is being networked even as media, 501c3s, and pols try their hardest to silence me. IN BALTIMORE AND MARYLAND THIS ATTEMPT TO SILENCE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC VOICE IS HUGE and it is felt hardest in 501c3 organizations that should be helping Rule of Law, Equal Protection, labor and justice. When a leader is appointed just for the reason to steer an organization from this progressive social voice---it is harming not helping people. The membership used to appoint these leaders----now leadership is bought sometimes for the simple reason people needs jobs.
VOTING BALTIMORE CITY HALL, MARYLAND ASSEMBLY, AND CONGRESSIONAL POLS THAT ARE REAL PROGRESSIVE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS MEANS 501c3's will have appointed PROGRESSIVE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP.
If people are going to continue to be divided by class and race----DIVIDED WE FALL INTO THIRD WORLD COLONIALISM. Often these pols pushing these bad policies have no families/children.
We are a nation of NAN and CAN for a reason-----capturing email and contact information of like-minded people and then saying these lists cannot be shared----all rules created by these organizational leadership. We MUST return to public meetings where people attending have access to names and contact information to like-minded people. Baltimore is a city of groups vying for supposedly progressive organization contact lists and this is why all public policy discussion/elections are captured.
WHICH ORGANIZATION WILL GET THAT CONTACT LIST I HEAR? THAT LIST NEEDS TO BE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE ATTENDING.

When people are made afraid to have their names or contact information showing they attending public meetings available to all attending-----you live in a fascist, autocratic society. Americans were never afraid to sign up for a community meeting held at a public school with the list posted so all could see. Please stop allowing them to make you afraid to have your name and contact open to all. Tell event organizations taking names and contact information to SHARE THESE NAMES WITH EVERYONE ON THESE LISTS.
In an age where every fact about you can be obtained by anyone having the money to buy lists----stop keeping your name from your fellow citizens. NETWORKING MEANS HAVING YOUR NAME AND CONTACT OPEN FOR PEOPLE THINKING YOU MAY AGREE OR SUPPORT THEIR STANCES. Just say----GO AWAY----if you do not share those feelings.
BE INTERESTED IN THESE CONTACT LISTS GROUPS ARE PASSING AROUND----AND GET THESE GROUPS USED TO SHARING THESE CONTACT LISTS WITH EVEYONE ON THESE LISTS.
But opposing groups will get those names-----
WELL, WHEN WE MET AT PUBLIC SCHOOLS WITH LISTS PASTED TO WALLS THE ENEMY GOT THOSE NAMES. OPEN PUBLIC INFORMATION IS ULTIMATELY GOOD IN AN INFORMED SOCIETY.
DO YOU HEAR YOURSELF WHEN YOU SAY THIS??? PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THIS FEAR IN AN OPEN SOCIETY!
Baltimore is one giant mass of secret contact lists by organizations posing progressive. News alert----real progressives believe in open public discourse!
9 Sites That Find People and Their 'Sensitive' Information
By Mark Sullivan, PCWorld
At one time or another, you might need to get the goods on a stranger, like a prospective nanny or a business contact. Public records and people-finder sites are often the place to look; we list the best ones here. These sites use cool, Web 2.0 techniques to help you locate people, then (if need be) dig deep to find the "sensitive" intel about them you need.
WhitePages.com: WhitePages and PeopleFinders are both good tools for tracking down people, their addresses, and their phone numbers, but the nod goes to WhitePages for its upcoming addition of voice and mobile capabilities.FriendFeed: Many content sharing and social networking sites exist now--Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, and so on--and my friends seem to be spread out evenly among them. I don't have time to visit them all. FriendFeed crawls more than 40 such sites to keep you updated on the Web pages, photos, videos, and music that your friends are sharing or commenting on.Spock: This site looks for a person's school, work, and social affiliations, then displays photos, links to social network pages, Web sites, videos, and blogs about that person. Facebook: I know, I know, recommending such a well-known standby as Facebook is like recommending that you wear sunscreen at the beach. But, really, what social networking site is more functional, more organized, and more populous than this one?
Glassdoor: This site invites you to log in and anonymously write what you really think of the company you work for, the culture you work in (here's where you gripe about your boss), and the salary you're pulling down. Then (and only then) can you dig for some dirt on current or former coworkers and, best of all, see how much they make.

Search Systems: Public-records sites do the legwork of collecting all kinds of public records from all over the country, and then sell access to them via the Internet. Search Systems, one of the oldest and most reliable of these companies, takes a no-nonsense approach to selling access to 36,000 public-records databases from around the country. You can access marriage and death records, property records, and business permits for a $5 monthly fee, or buy the "premium" service, which includes bankruptcy and criminal records.
NETRonline (www.netronline.com): For a somewhat more hands-on approach to accessing public records, NETRonline's free public records portal is a very useful tool, with direct links to the actual county and state databases that contain the data. NETR also offers background checks and criminal-record searches, for a price.
Criminal Searches: Do you really know the people in your neighborhood? Do some of them have criminal histories, including sex-related offenses, violent crimes, and theft (or just traffic offenses, as the site also details)? Criminal Searches provides their mug shots and even plots their addresses on a map, for free.
FundRace: This clever mashup site plots political donors on a map and shows how much they contributed. What did your neighbor give to the Democrats or the Republicans this year?
In Maryland the Baltimore and Maryland media will not even mention a politician that is up for re-election unless a sitting pol is leaving office. Then, if good people choose to run against a sitting pol the media calls these people marginal even when the sitting pols are elected with 20% of all registered voters----SOUNDS PRETTY MARGINAL RIGHT?
We must have good people running in these Congressional elections----indeed all elections. This is where the lobby money comes and captures local politics. All of Baltimore's pols were with Clinton in the 1990s to create this global corporate rule mess and each election they pretend they oppose it.
WE HAVE A FEW MONTHS TO GET REAL PROGRESSIVE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS IN ALL PRIMARY ELECTIONS----BOTH CONGRESSIONAL AND BALTIMORE CITY HALL AND MAYOR.
EVERYONE ONE OF THESE POLS ARE A CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL
Don't worry if you do not know the job---someone will help you! Believe me---these pols do not know their job either.
