July 26, 2013 12:00 am

In my youth, we played kick the can. You don't see it played anymore. It's too bad. It was good, clean fun and didn't cost much.

Politicians have their own version of "kick the can down the road." It's played in backrooms in Congress. It can be very dirty, and it's seemingly easy for them to get away with it.

As a proud member and organizer of the Chesterton Occupy/99 Percent movement, our goal is to inform and contact legislators to voice our concerns.

The meetings are the second and last Saturday of every month at 2 p.m.* in the Woods Room at the Chesterton Library, 200 W. Indiana.

The goal is to to inform the public of local, state and national news through various news programs. Like Sunday AM shows such as Fourth Nation, Meet the Press and also Current TV on MSNBC, along with programming on 820 AM radio progressive stations of Chicago.

Let's inform the politicians we're tired of decades of corruption and not smiling.

- Joe Jimenez, Chesterton
