Today’s New York Times reports the fact that the Tax Dodgers – a satirical baseball team often backed up by The Occuponics, has now made the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame.
This is wonderful news, because everybody associated with this project has worked very hard over the past few months to get the word out about the glories of being super-rich and irresponsible. So let’s give a big huzzah for The Tax Dodgers – the bad guys you love to hate and hate to love!
Here’s a quick clip of our wonderful team performing outside Ann Romney’s birthday party at Trump Tower on April 15th – the Dodgers’ favorite day of the year!
The Tax Dodgers – a satirical baseball team that The Occuponics often accompany when they stroll and sing the “Tax Dodger Song,” were on the radio recently with Danny Schecter, the News Dissector. Here they are on the radio: this show was broadcast on PRN (the Progressive Radio Network) on April 27, 2012.

The Occuponics’ Paul Stein was on hand this past Tuesday to provide musical accompaniment for The Tax Dodgers as they strolled around town in support of the May Day protests in New York City. At Union Square, the Dodgers were approached by Amy Goodman, of Democracy Now, and had a chance to be interviewed and perform their original song, “Take Me Out to the Tax Game.” This is the complete (slightly edited) interview of the Tax Dodgers (and of The Occuponics briefly at the end) with a transcript. Part of this interview and the complete “Take Me Out to the Tax Game” found here was a segment of the national broadcast of Democracy Now on May 2, 2012.
Also, you can find the complete May 2nd Democracy Now news broadcast on Democracy Now’s servers, along with a transcript:
Another fun video recording of the Tax Dodgers’ late-night visit to Rockefeller Center, home of GE, NBC, and MSNBC. This video, shot by the Adventure Pants production company, is very nicely produced, and features The Dodgers, The Occuponics, and the famous Illuminator truck, a high-tech vehicle that projects images on iconic buildings — in this case, Radio Music Hall.
The Occuponics and The Tax Dodgers spent a day serenading the public on Federal Tax Day, April 17, 2012. Here’s a video of the team singing outside Trump Tower, where Donald Trump, one of our heroes, is hosting a birthday celebration for the lovely and talented Ann Romney. After this, the Dodgers and the Occuponics headed downtown, making multiple stops at the sites of corporations that refuse to pay their fair share of the tax burden.
MEDIA ALERT: THE OCCUPONICS WILL ACCOMPANY THE TAX DODGERS ON APRIL 17TH (FEDERAL TAX DAY)
The Occuponics are honored to be the house band for The Tax Dodgers. The team was in Central Park this past Saturday warming up for the big game on Tax Day. Here’s a rousing performance of “Take Me Out to the Tax Game”. Thanks, RK Chin and Jennifer Maskell, for shooting these videos. And thanks to the OWS Drum Circle for providing a steady beat!
