Keep up with Jim Rogers latest project to create a system that will hold politicians feet to the fire, and to put shackles on lobbiers so that they can no longer control the system. One day we might have a system that controled by the people and is for the people.

Don’t Think…

Sometimes I think we the people really need to turn our TV’s, radio’s, video games and computers off and give our over stimulated brains a rest. We need to quit listening to the corporate media tell us what to think, do, buy, fear, and hate. We need to top letting them distract and control our minds with their  . Step outside of the one dimensional box they’ve built for you. Go out and take a look for yourself at what’s really going on in the world. Learn about other cultures and religions instead of fearing and hating them. Experience and learn about nature and the natural world around us, and then learn to live in balance with it; after all it is what gives us life.

Norwegians sing out against killer

AS ONE VOICE: CROWDS PACKED AN OLSO SQUARE TO DEFIANTLY SING “CHILDREN OF THE RAINBOW”, WHICH THE NORWAY GUNMAN CLAIMED IS USED TO BRAINWASH CHILDREN INTO SUPPORTING MULTICULTURALISM. PICTURE: AP AP

THOUSANDS of defiant Norwegians have gathered in public squares to sing a song despised by the Norway gunman.

They gathered by the tens of thousands, aiming to face down terror with the power of music.

Inspired by a Facebook-organised protest, Norwegians flocked to public squares across the country yesterday, ignored the drenching rain and lifted their voices in song.

Their target: far-right fanatic Anders Behring Breivik, now on trial for a bomb-and-shooting rampage that killed 77 people. Their weapon: a children’s tune that he claims has been used to brainwash the country’s youth into supporting immigration.

Defiant sing-alongs of “Children of the Rainbow” were staged in Oslo and other major Norwegian cities, while in court survivors of Mr Breivik’s attacks gave tearful testimony in the ninth day of his trial. Read more…

Anonymous: Message to United States Citizens [CISPA]

Petition: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/cispa_passes?akid=1331.401496.hxiqqw&…

Greetings citizens of the United States.

We are Anonymous.

Thursday, April 26th, the United States House, in a rushed vote, passed the HR 3523, also known as CISPA.

Dubbed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, it allows the United States to collect information about users of the internet. It allows the United States to monitor all activity on the net and can be used to monitor any individual’s internet usage. This monitoring is called deep packet inspection, it looks through everything that is going in and out of your computer, which is a blatant violation of our rights to privacy.
Looking through your mail is a crime for a postman, these rules should apply to the internet too.

The bill’s intent is to help stop cyber attacks… However; the vague wording of the bill could allow the government to use this new power to go behind privacy protection and monitor, censor, and cut off online communication.

President Obama has already stated that he will veto the bill, but this is also what was said about NDAA.

Together, we can stop this act. The time to take action is now. We have defeated previous attempts to censor our only platform of true honest communication, the internet. SOPA was only the beginning.

Sign petitions, call your congressmen, and kill this act in the senate.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
CISPA, Expect us.

NYC Dept. Of Education Bans ‘Evolution’ And Other ‘Offensive’ Words From Tests (VIDEO)

This is ridiculous…

In a move that should bring down a storm of condemnation from pretty much the entire political spectrum, the New York City Department of Education has provided a list of taboo words to the companies that develop standardized testing. Among them are words like “evolution” and “Christmas.” This is taking political correctness to an absurd degree. Read more…
