CD BOYCOTT

In response to the RIAA targetting individual users of programs such as Kazaa and LimeWire, a boycott of CD purchases seems appropriate.

For the next month, or more, don't buy any new CDs.

If you agree with this initiative, please copy it to your own journal.

The RIAA has trounced consumer rights for decades. Why should we continue to support such a corrupt institution?

Bush Administration VETO Threat -- Fight Back Now!
The fight to roll back the controversial changes to media ownership rules that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved in June has enjoyed broad support in Congress and attracted the attention and concern of Americans from across the political spectrum. Nearly two million Americans told the FCC they opposed the new rules, and growing numbers continue to contact their elected officials in Congress to urge them to support a rollback of the rules. Thanks to your efforts, the issue has emerged from the obscurity of a regulatory commission to ignite the formation of a coalition of organizations and individuals from the left and right that is rarely seen in our country. Now we have a new threat to our efforts. The media industry has spent more than $124 million on political contributions and lobbying in Washington since 1995. Media interests are pressing Congress not to roll back the ownership rules because media consolidation will increase their profits. They are asking the White House to block any congressional rollback of the FCC rules.

The Bush Administration is threatening to veto legislation that would restore safeguards against further media consolidation. The Administration has warned Congress that, "If this amendment were contained in the final legislation presented to the President, his senior advisers would recommend that he veto the bill."

We need to tell President Bush to listen to the American people, not to the media industry or his "senior advisors."

We need your voice to offset the political clout of the media giants. Join me in having your voice heard by signing this petition. You can sign up at: http://www.commoncause.org/action/petition.cfm

So...

We went to see The Leage of Extrordinary Gentlemen. Which sucked. Not even Sean Connery could save it. They warps so many epic stories so badly... Including Mina Harker as a Vampire who can walk in the day light.

We go out, and my sister had tried to call my Dad's cell. We called back, but my sister was gone, and they got her roommate, Bethany....

First a little back story. A few months ago, my sister witnessed a neighbor beating his child. She told him to stop, and he became enraged. It seems the house is the house of the local ganglord, and the guy my sister yelled at is his out of control younger brother. He has, since then, on many occassions, threaten to kill and rape my sister. Usually, but going in front of her house at to or three in the morning and yelling at the house. She has called the cops, and they have said there is nothing they can do.

Well, today, my sister and her roomies were in the local coffee shop, and they guy steals the tip cup. They called the police and chased him back to his house, and identified him. Apparently he had a gun. My sister and her roomieshave cleared out of the house for the night, though we have no idea if she is coming here, or going to Crash's.

Everyone is all stressed and worried at the momment, wondering where she is.
