BACKSTORY - ONGOING STORY- Birthday Mary Glass @ 70 & the Papal visit of Pope Francis


Pope Francis - Jorge Mario Bergoglio

Mary Glass
MILWAUKEE - September 22, 2015, was the 70th Birthday of Mary Glass, Chair/Chief Visionary Officer, Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC.  

It was also the day that the 266th Roman Catholic head of state, Pope Francis - Jorge Mario Bergoglio, The People's Pope, came to America for the first time.  He is 78 years young.

Mary is Catholic and is a Lector at her church -The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist.  

She will call for Catholic Charities, Archbishop Jerome Listecki, all bishops, Father Jeffrey Haines, and all the ministers, sisters, leaders and staff of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to collectively outreach to the all neighborhoods, the family of Milwaukee; so that the catholic religion is led by the rich and connected academic services of the leaders of Marquette University-Cardinal Stritch University-Alverno College; so that the center of all Catholic services join with its neighbors and jointly impact Milwaukee's Enduring Concentrated Poverty. 

Thereby, distrust, homelessness, hunger, joblessness, greed, discrimination, exploitation, lawlessness, hatred, racism, misuse of power are replaced through the act of "ongoing expectation and acts of love in our Vision and daily Mission".
==========


"As a Catholic, I was pleased to see Pope Francis speak endlessly about the importance of INCLUSION of ALL people and respect for the FAMILY - personal, extended, to world-created, said Mary Glass.  We have had 6 days of immersing - a baptising, in the art of LOVE through the master's teachings of Grace".  "It has been pomp and ceremony at its best; and, It has been depicted in an all-day lens of visual outreach through media - especially via CNN".  "Americans and individuals around the world had a welcomed breath of fresh air during the six days of Tuesday, September 22-September 27, 2015".  "I ask that we pray for Pope Francis and for each one of us".

Happy 70th Mary Glass and God's strength I send to me.
Pope Francis constantly asked during his visit to the USA, that we pray for him - I send my prays with him intended.

SUNDAY AM EDITION - HELP Mary Glass create COMMUNICATION for People's engagement 3-Minute video

3-Minute Video

"It is clear that we have taken a step forward into the opportunities of the world wide web and social networking for the implementation of our newest campaign, Marathon Against NBA Bucks Mega Greed Deal,said Mary Glass, Chair/Chief Visionary Officer.  "We have launched a time-sensitive crowdfunding campaign to provide necessary information to the People of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County; and, to compete with the Fast-tracking of Mayor Tom Barrett, County Executive Chris Abele and Governor Scott Walker." 

Let's work to TWEAK this wrong and create a model for you and others who have or have not (yet) been affected by one of the NBA teams.

On June 4, 2015, Wisconsinites were broadsided with the press conference announcement by Walker-Abele-Barrett of a deal they had cut with three wealthy millionaire-billionaires for the retention of the Milwaukee Bucks team in the city of Milwaukee. 

The initial deal is called:  "It is Cheaper to Keep Them".  It is proposed at $500 million and consist of  two (2) paying parts – $250 million from buyers ($150 million) and seller ($100 million); and, $250 from PUBLIC FINANCING – $55 million  – state; $55 million – county; $43 million – city of Milwaukee; and, $93 million - Wisconsin Center District - the traffic cop of the funding.  

The announcement also came with pretense of this-n-that in cost.  However, cost-overruns, public staff work, interest and lack of clarity of all partners and investors; the only thing for certain is the taxpayers (mostly the city followed by the county) will pay for 30 years for a private deal for three wealthy men that they knew nothing about, had no input, and did not authorize such a deal of Involuntary Servitude.  

Therein lies the "Misuse of Power" followed by many troubling features, that include Senate Bill 209, $1 giveaway  of approximately 10 acres of prime Park East Corridor real estate, sales tax waivers, purchase of a parking lot, giveaways of parking lot revenue, tax increment districts, $200 million Contingency fund in the 2016 budget, housing funding, environmental payments, changing of RACM staff involvement and authorities, etc.   It is clear that the deal has been on all three (3) levels for some time but no due diligence toward the People.

YouCaring Crowdfunding will assist MPA LLC, the neighbors of the communities and districts of the city of Milwaukee and county of Milwaukee to tweak the fast-tracking and wrongful acts at the present time in the city and county government. 

This outreach will allow us to give proper NOTICE to our elected-appointed-hired-donor for hire government representatives that the People feel betrayed, disrespected, double-crossed, discriminated against and disenfranchised by the CHEAPER TO KEEP THEM Deal.

*************************************************************************
This Marathon led by MPA LLC to create a massive Communication for the aggrandizement of the People will not only tweak the wrong done by Misuse of Power, seek correction through the justice system, bring individuals up on charges and help prevent more damage to the human-civil-legal rights of the People of the city of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County and the state of Wisconsin, as a model when dealing with public financing.

MILWAUKEE - We are pleased to announce that YouCaring is Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC choice for Crowdfunding.  The platform is well known, has easy access, provides support and its pay system instantly enable users to accept donations.

"It is clear that we must take a giant step forward into the opportunities of the World Wide Web and social networking for the implementation of our newest campaign, Marathon against NBA Bucks Mega Greed Deal," said Mary Glass, Chair/Chief Visionary Officer.  "We have launched a time-sensitive crowdfunding campaign to jumpstart the campaign and provide necessary information to the People of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County to compete with the Fast-tracking of the Public Financing that has the citizenry hog-tied in 30 years of INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE.

On June 4, 2015, Wisconsinites were broadsided with the press conference announcement by Governor Scott Walker-County Executive Chris Abele-Mayor Tom Barrett of a deal they had cut with three wealthy millionaires, Herb Kohl and billionaires Wes Edens and Marc Larsy, for the retention of the Milwaukee Bucks National Basketball Team in the city of Milwaukee.

The announced deal is called:  "It is Cheaper to Keep Them".  It is proposed at $500 million and it consists of two (2) paying parts; one is private and one is public.  The private part of the deal was $250 million.  It was divided into:
       $250 million from seller Herb Kohl and buyers Marc Larsy and Wes Eden
       $100 million from seller Herb Kohl
       $150 million from Marc Larsy and Wes Eden

The public part of the deal was $250 million.  It was divided into:                                
– $55 million State of Wisconsin
– $55 million Milwaukee County
– 47 million City of Milwaukee
– 93 million Wisconsin Center District - the traffic cop of the funding. 

The Cheaper to Keep Them announcement also came with surreptitious parts of this-n-that in cost and the promise of JOBS with no specificity in accountability. 

Continued reports of cost-overruns, public staff work, surreptitious meetings, growing interest cost, NO involvement of African American and People of Color and lack of clarity of all partners and investors left the taxpayers of Milwaukee with their mouths open with the ongoing surprises and disgust of another deal for everyone but them; however, they provide the framing and finance.

The bottom line for the taxpayers from the Cheaper to Keep Them deal was that the taxpayers had been violated in due process and they will pay for 30 years for a private deal for three wealthy men (Kohl-Edens-Larsy) that they knew nothing about, had no input, and did not authorize – a deal of Involuntary Servitude. 

They saw how Walker-Abele-Barrett’s "Misuse of Power" included the legislative side (state-county-city), and monopoly-oligopoly takeover of lobbyists, developers and investors with conflict of interest, bait-n-switch, marketing created many troubling features, that included legislators rolling over with support, Rolling Request for Proposals, Resolution, Senate Bill 209, $1 giveaway of approximately 10 acres of prime Park East Corridor real estate, sales tax waivers, purchase of a parking lot, giveaways of parking lot revenue, framing of tax increment districts, recommendations from comptroller and key officers, $200 million Contingency fund in the 2016 city budget (earmarked for NBA Bucks Mega Greed Deal funding), housing funding, environmental payments, changing of RACM staff involvement and the dominance of Head of the Herd LLC.   It is clear that the level of disenfranchisement demands the U.S. Department of Justice and as often as necessary visits to our judicial system for address and relief.

YouCaring Crowdfunding will assist MPA LLC, Milwaukee Joint NSP Committee & Task Force (the neighbors of the communities) in districts of the city of Milwaukee and county of Milwaukee to shine a light, tweak the fast-tracking and wrongful acts at the present time and seek relief through our justice system, public scrutiny and the 2016 ballot box. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                   
We look forward to creating an ongoing leadership, fellowship and stewardship for public policy that includes networking with our new relationships across the city-county-state-nation-world to jumpstart a 2015 email and text list for data collection, surveys, focus groups, and a conference to promote success and the functional model that will come from the YouCaring Crowdfunding over the next 20 plus days.   

Our YouCaring campaign is called:

LABOR DAY - A tribute to American Workers - especially African Americans in KING COTTON SLAVERY

CITY-WIDE Milwaukee | DAY of September 7, 2015 | Labor Fest in Milwaukee is the traditional celebration with parade, food, speakers and advocacy at the Henry Maier grounds.  President Barack Obama has been a featured speaker and highlighted the importance of remember the importance of WORK and the importance of improving "work conditions".

Historic
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

African American 
We remember and celebrate the history of African Americans working in these United States and  promoting economic wealth for Caucasians - Enduring Concentrated Poverty.


The Gospel of Slavery, by “Iron Gray,” [Abel C. Thomas] 1864.
The most commonly used phrase describing the growth of the American economy in the 1830s and 1840s was “Cotton Is King.” We think of this slogan today as describing the plantation economy of the slavery states in the Deep South, which led to the creation of “the second Middle Passage.” But it is important to understand that this was not simply a Southern phenomenon. Cotton was one of the world’s first luxury commodities, after sugar and tobacco, and was also the commodity whose production most dramatically turned millions of black human beings in the United States themselves into commodities. Cotton became the first mass consumer commodity.

Understanding both how extraordinarily profitable cotton was and how interconnected and overlapping were the economies of the cotton plantation, the Northern banking industry, New England textile factories and a huge proportion of the economy of Great Britain helps us to understand why it was something of a miracle that slavery was finally abolished in this country at all.

Let me try to break this down quickly, since it is so fascinating:
Let’s start with the value of the slave population. Steven Deyle shows that in 1860, the value of the slaves was “roughly three times greater than the total amount invested in banks,” and it was “equal to about seven times the total value of all currency in circulation in the country, three times the value of the entire livestock population, twelve times the value of the entire U.S. cotton crop and forty-eight times the total expenditure of the federal government that year.” As mentioned here in a previous column, the invention of the cotton gin greatly increased the productivity of cotton harvesting by slaves. This resulted in dramatically higher profits for planters, which in turn led to a seemingly insatiable increase in the demand for more slaves, in a savage, brutal and vicious cycle.

Now, the value of cotton: Slave-produced cotton “brought commercial ascendancy to New York City, was the driving force for territorial expansion in the Old Southwest and fostered trade between Europe and the United States,” according to Gene Dattel. In fact, cotton productivity, no doubt due to the sharecropping system that replaced slavery, remained central to the American economy for a very long time: “Cotton was the leading American export from 1803 to 1937.”

What did cotton production and slavery have to do with Great Britain? The figures are astonishing. As Dattel explains: “Britain, the most powerful nation in the world, relied on slave-produced American cotton for over 80 per cent of its essential industrial raw material. English textile mills accounted for 40 percent of Britain’s exports. One-fifth of Britain’s twenty-two million people were directly or indirectly involved with cotton textiles.”



twenty-two million people were directly or indirectly involved with cotton textiles.”
