***SAT JAN 21 " CITIZENS UNITED ANNIVERSARY " Our national movement to restore Government By the PEOPLE by amending the Constitution has exploded, with cities and counties across the country passing resolutions supporting an amendment that would overturn the Citizens United decision. The New York City Council is voting TODAY to pass such a resolution. We've teamed up with allies including Public Citizen, Move to Amend, Common Cause and many others to educate the U. S. citizens in this country about the dangers of unlimited corporate influence in elections and help foster a groundswell of public support for amending the Constitution to reverse Citizens United! Hundreds of public events will take place on and around the Citizens United anniversary, January 21. And leading up to that, we hope to engage as many Americans as possible in planning events, and equip them with the tools they need to organize anniversary events in their communities.

Ask Roy Zimmerman. He's been writing satirical songs for twenty years. The Los Angeles Times says, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."
