Get up Stand UP!

Today, November 16, 2011, is American Censorship Day. Read about it HERE.

This from H-Online :
"Mozilla has joined with other leading Internet organisations such as AOL, eBay, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yahoo, Zynga and public interest groups in opposing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Also known as H.R.3261, SOPA was introduced in the US House of Representatives in October. The organisations have sent Congressional leaders a joint letter expressing their concern with the legislative measures that are being introduced."
As they used to say on Hee-Haw: SALUTE!!!

Words from the great philosopher, Mr. Robert Marley:

and get the T-shirt:
I must say that I really admire what Makana did at the APEC dinner performing his "We Are The Many" to various world leaders and found this short video interesting. I understand how he feels. We should not be afraid to demand our American values & freedoms that the Powers That Be keep trying, and too often successfully, to take away from us.

Here's a video of the song "We Are the Many" (Occupy Aloha). Not a great video but he has a nice voice and a good message.

And to ALL of the Occupy supporters, on the front lines or not...
a giant SALUTE!

Here's some words from another great philosopher that died too young... John Lennon:

I'm on a rant & roll... Are you still here?  If so, check out this music video...

James McMurtry - "We Can't Make It Here"

Bob on Boat Bits mentioned this very interesting article today: The Bonus Army: How A Protest Led To The GI Bill. Read it... it's about a group of WWI veterans demanding what they were due back in 1932.  SALUTE !

SO IT GOES and the beat goes on...
