April 1st: Common Security Clubs showing Inside Job
You know what they say. Fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on
me. The big banks and lax regulators sure did fool us once, to the tune of
billions of dollars and a worldwide economic meltdown. And unless things
change, they’re on track to fool us again.
Don't let them get away with it. Organize a “We Won’t Be Fooled Again” party!
Rent or buy the movie "Inside Job" and watch it with a few friends or
neighbors on Friday, April 1. List your party here on Facebook
(http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=190850457618079) and we'll send one
randomly selected party a free copy of the DVD.
Use this discussion guide
to talk about it the film – and to talk about what steps you can take to
increase your own economic security. For the full Teacher's Guide to the film,
If you’re part of a Common Security Club, you’re learning about the causes of
the meltdown and exploring a new type of economic security that’s not based on
Wall Street’s “phantom wealth,” but on the real wealth generated by you and
your community. Sign Up at commonsecurityclub.org to hear news from the Common
Security Club movement.
If you're in Washington DC on April 1, attend an "Inside Job" public screening
and discussion moderated by Chuck Collins at the Festival Center. For details,
Wall Street fooled us once – don’t let them do it again. Get informed and get
moving to increase your independence from their phantom wealth traps.

journalists, the documentary traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils
the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and
