Whistleblowers Need Protection

Are you a whistleblower that needs help? Do you know of wrongdoing and want to report anonymously? Need someone to talk to about the retaliation?

Would the last rich person to leave the U.S., in crisis please turn out the lights?

There was a billboard in Pittsburgh that said about the same thing after the steel mills closed.  And now we see via the media, that Wall Street and Government are one and the same.  So let's call it what it is.  WallGov.hell.  Citizens---Welcome to Hell-Grab Your Hand Basket and Solar Powered Flashlight Because the Rich are about to Shut Off the Lights---Again!  When did our government become of the rich and for the rich !  Where the are our elected officials and when did all the government employees stop honoring their duties to the American people?  Open your window and whistle "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it."

Another Dark Day for Whistleblowers; An Extremely Harmful Day for the American People and Global Economy.

It's a horrible, dark day when a whistle blower goes to the lengths of trying to prove the U.S. Treasury is owed $2 billion in U.S. taxes from 2000 to 2009, as Daniel J. Schlicksup did and ends up being retaliated against. Schlicksup was a global tax strategy manager for Caterpillar from 2005 to 2008. 


To make matters worse for the American People and Global Economy, take a look at how the Justice Department is going soft on Wall Street.  Interference with investigations and deferred prosecutions in order to allow corporate execs to escape the law. 

“We will not get an explanation of why there haven’t been prosecutions; at best, we will get a reference back to the Department of Justice manual that leaves the discretion to the prosecutors,” said Professor Ramirez of Washburn University. “The legal representatives will argue that since recoveries can be had by using civil measures, even private litigations, there’s no need to bring criminal measures. I disagree with that very much.”
