On April 26, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed CISPA – the Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act, H.R. 3523 – by a vote of 248-168. This week, the Senate may vote on CISPA-like bills (Lieberman-Collins S.2105 or McCain S.2151).
CISPA gives the government, including military spy agencies like the National Security Agency (NSA), virtually unlimited powers to capture our personal information — medical records, private emails, financial information — all without a warrant or proper oversight.
Civil liberties groups and progressives unanimously opposed the bill, as did Ron Paul. President Obama warned the House that he will veto the bill because it does not protect our privacy, but they ignored his warnings.
Tell your Senators to protect your privacy from Big Brother and oppose CISPA.

Keep it real.
Sorry to everyone I could only find this video with annoying ads. I try to avoid this whenever possible.
Kill your MySpace. Delete your profile.
I said it.
Happy (Hopefully) 2009 People!!!
Just because it makes me smile.
“Not their fault…” what a snide comment at the end. It is hard to take someone seriously who starts off the interview saying ACORN is accused of voter fraud… Was there voter fraud or was it voter registration fraud? I believe no one has voted yet, correct me if I am wrong.
What I enjoyed about this interview is not just how I think Bertha is very good at doing what she does, but that this guy on Rupert Murdoch’s one-sided soapbox might actually respect Bertha Lewis, almost enough to be cool and not do one of Fox’s outrageous attack interviews. I think at the end there he got scared and just blurted out, “not their fault…”. Next time he may be stronger. :]
People can surprise you.
The Original Mavericks are mad…
It is sad the way America is sometimes.
The way the elections are lately.
What our choices are this time.
I feel sorry for what an obvious tool McCain (this video makes me pity him), Palin, and corporate media are in this country (no, I am not naive, I am just saying). I am not sure what the solution is, besides educating ourselves to who these people are and what is really going on, with these Democrats as well.
Wake up and look around.
My friend Seth sent me this video of his daughter’s political views last week and I love it!
I know some people have a problem with Michael Moore, but I don’t so here’s what’s new…

I know it’s blasphemy, but I am not really feeling anybody…I’m not feeling this Obama or McCain.
I need to get into it, research the candidates and see which one is less of an ass. I feel like I should go Democrat as the last Republican has been such a disaster and lately these Republicans have been somewhat evil, working all the angles in a negative, self-fulfilling way. Their focus is on money and power, not on people and definitely not on the planet.
On the other hand, Democrats seem to be wishy-washy, very easily bullied, controlled, not very organized and somewhat dull. Where has all the revolutionary spirit gone?
Both sides aren’t super fresh or exciting to learn about, but I am speaking out of ignorance, you never know what may come around the corner….well sometimes I know, but on occasion things surprise me.
I’ll list some sites I intend to use for research in case anyone else out there is stuck like me or just interested. If I happen to come across anything, i will update this entry with more on this issue.
Here’s some 2008 Campaign Research Links:
I want to get excited about elections and not feel doomed to choose between Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dumb.
What to do…
