Faith Laugier is a Journalist/Radio show host on WBAI, New York 99.5FM and on 11-17-11  according to her friend who filmed this video, “… she was indiscriminately grabbed from the crowd while moving away from the chaos, as instructed to do by NYPD. At the very start of this video you can see a police officer rush her from behind and body slam her to the pavement. Handcuffs were then placed on her in such a way that caused the veins in her arms to erect. Officers refused to loosen her cuffs as well as explain why she was being detained.

Also, several times in the midst of my filming and photographing her arrest several police officers attempted to swat and take my camera from me. At one point an officer shouted, “grab that man”, me. I was able to remain safe.”

Journalist Faith Laugier was assaulted then arrested by NYPD without committing any crime. According to The First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Yo America, what’s going on here? You better stop playing games.

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! – fightforthefuture.org/​pipa

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting “creativity”. The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites– they just have to convince a judge that the site is “dedicated to copyright infringement.”

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that’s for a fix that won’t work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

Bottom line here is it is a way for corporations to annihilate smaller businesses and stop revolutionaries! Check out Fight for the Future  and AmericanCensorship.org.

Fight the power!

This is an amazing video by Sophie Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith, of a murmuration on the River Shannon in Ireland.

Each fall thousands of starlings, at twilight, gather in magical shape-shifting flocks called murmurations, having migrated by the millions from Russia and Scandinavia to avoid winter’s chill. Scientists have not been able to explain this awe inspiring phenomenon, which rely on the tiny bird’s almost instantaneous reaction time of under 100 milliseconds to avoid aerial collisions and predators in a massive flock.

Despite their show of force in this dusky sky, starlings have declined significantly in the UK in recent years, perhaps because of a drop in nesting sites. Man destroying another beautiful mystery in this world for money.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
