Picky, picky, but Daniel, I think you need a comma between “Online” and “Palatucci”

Mauimom commented on the blog post Bill Keller Advises Obama To ‘Crack Some Heads’ To Pass TPP
Here’s a far better, and more comprehensive analysis of the TPP from over at Naked Capitalism — a link to an interview with Yves Smith by Harry Shearer on his “Le Show.”
It’s serious, informative, and comprehensive.
Mauimom commented on the blog post TPP And Its Atlantic Cousin Set Stage For Corporatocracy
Please go to the link to the discussion of the TPP between Harry Shearer & Yves Smith cited in the previous blog.
There’s extensive information, presented in a clear manner that you can send to friends to enlighten them as well.
Obama and the Dems are counting on public ignorance to sneak this through. We’ve got to start a confer-campaign based on information.
Mauimom commented on the blog post Renewed Push To Curb Money Laundering Could Threaten Wall Street
That’s an excellent interview of Yves by Harry. I highly recommend both listening to it yourself and then sending it to others.
The evil that is the TPP is getting NO coverage [as intended by Obama & Friends], but at the very least this discussion will point out the secrecy & news blackout and perhaps prompt calls for info.
Going at this from the “stop money laundering” angle probably has more chance of success than “stop this bill that will screw environmental and labor regulations and allow corporations to sue just about anyone.”
Mauimom commented on the diary post What Could Possibly Go Wrong, Kansas Edition, Part 936 by Peterr.
Thanks for this, Peterr. One thing that struck me about this scenario is that these fools “developed” over a long right-wing training ground:
Kris Kobach. Kobach is an alumnus of the Ashcroft DOJ,
Ryan, whose last job before becoming a member of Congress was as Brownback’s legislative director.
As much as folks may ridicule the “jobs” and [...]
Will definitely do so. And as developments occur, or you have additional ideas, please keep us informed.
Glad to help in any way.
When I read about the exorbitant salaries of hedge fund folks, I always think that the Janet Minos of the world are the ones who work the hardest and deserve that over-large compensation.
Don’t worry, we’ll get you here somehow.
Another important contribution of this film is that you’ve presented a “face” of those with autism. Just as with Down Syndrome a number of years ago, people can be put off by individuals’ appearances, can even be a little frightened.
By showing who each of these people is, how they are struggling to do the simple tasks that we take for granted, how they WANT to succeed and approach a “normal” life, I think you will help those who see this film react a little more positively, with a little more understanding, that the “pulling back” which often accompanies an encounter with someone who feels “strange.”
And Janet’s genuine respect and love for her students model how each of us should be acting.
Well Oprah DOES have a place on Maui. But, no, she doesn’t mingle with folks like us.
However, one of my daughter’s best friends works for Katie Couric’s show. I’ll investigate how to pursue getting her interested. Bev can provide you with my contact info.
Families need a “bureaucracy coach.” Not kidding!!!
Again, an opportunity for a fairly large “bang” for a not-too-big buck.
In the DC area, they have “Metro Access” that accommodates disabled passengers, and even comes “on demand.”
You’d think in Newark or elsewhere they could develop one or two or three “routes” to serve the adults and employers. Buy a van, put together a schedule. A small start, but a start.
Hey, Cory Booker . . .
what exactly is a “job coach” and couldn’t Burger King supply one, I mean they are a multi-million dollar corp
Perhaps another piece of the work to be done is to make corporations and other employers aware of these small steps and accommodations they could make to help these employees. “Just hiring” them isn’t enough, and the assistance doesn’t have to go on forever.
I’ll naively believe that they just need enlightening and imagination.
And think about what a small amount of money would be required to get this for him!! And such a pay-back.
Do you know if there are organizations devoted to raising money for these ends? A place to which families could apply for the small things like this that would make a difference.
Great! The folks who made “Heist: Who Stole the American Dream” were here about a year ago, and it’s useful to be able to direct folks to Netflix where they can see the film. Digital definitely = good.
Will the film come out on DVD at some point?
It would be nice to be able to order quantities of it to give to friends with the note “here’s my present to you. Your present to me can be a donation to Janet.”
Janet Mino is a SAINT. Her tireless good humor seems genuine, not something put on for show. And her energy and level of caring are beyond belief.
I don’t know if there’s any process for nominating someone for a MacArthur “genius” grant, but she’d be an ideal candidate
I saw that at the end in the credits. Yes, please information on it.
At my husband and my “stage in life,” we try not to give each other “stuff” for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, but encourage contributions to worthy causes. This will certainly go onto our list.
I think one of the strengths of your film is that it DOESN”T focus on “diagnosis” or “research,” but deals with the real life effects, particularly for those at the “age out” end of the time frame. For some reason, it seems to me there’s more money for research, but not as much for the “what do we do?”
