Emergency Rally Against Oregon Austerity – No Deal For Nike

December 12, 2012

This is an emergency call to arms, my friends. Our state legislatives are trying to rush a measure through that will give Nike tax incentives for the next 40 years. It’s austerity measures like these that are hurting us economically. We have schools closing all around us, libraries cutting their hours, teachers losing their jobs and families in poverty in need of food and healthcare, yet we can give a multi-billion dollar company tax breaks for the next 40 years? For what? a promise of 500 jobs at the most? It’s not even a guarantee!! How about we don’t give them tax breaks, take that money and hire teachers, create jobs fixing bridges and roads, feed the needy and give healthcare to those who need it!!

If we keep giving in to this bullshit propaganda that tax breaks for the wealthy create jobs, we will never fix the problems that got us into this mess in the first place. The time is now to stand up and say “Enough is Enough”!! Call your Representatives, Twitter bomb the fuck out of them, email them til their computers explode and come out Thursday night and tell the world “We’re not falling for this bullshit anymore” and together we will stop the corporate machine!!
