US Senate More Dangerous to America than Terrorists

This is not a joke.

From the ACLU:

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.

Read the full story here then please make sure you take action and contact the Senate and let them know that they are not allowed to destroy our Constitution. The bill is S 1867 and I would argue that Sens. McCain and Levin are clearly breaking their oath of office to uphold the Constitution and pose a far, far greater threat to the very meaning of American than anything any terrorists has ever done.

An Occupy Anthem

An amazing story about an Occupy of one in a place of the privileged few, giving voice to the many:

During the gala dinner, renowned Hawaiian guitarist Makana, who performed at the White House in 2009, opened his suit jacket to reveal a home-made “Occupy with Aloha” T-shirt. Then, instead of playing the expected instrumental background music, he spent almost 45 minutes repeatedly singing his protest ballad released earlier that day. The ballad, called “We Are the Many,” includes lines such as “The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw…. And until they are purged, we won’t withdraw,” and ends with the refrain: “We’ll occupy the streets, we’ll occupy the courts, we’ll occupy the offices of you, till you do the bidding of the many, not the few.”

Here’s a video of the song:

And a video of Makana talking about his experience.

Clever bot.

Not.

Or maybe it’s a Dada bot.

A Song I Composed Using Garageband on My iPhone Whilst Laying in Bed Between Midnight and 2 AM

It’s called “Softly (I want)” and I was up way, way too late working on this. It’s a demo, a rough sketch perhaps, but the fact that I made this on my phone still amazes me. Also, it captures something of what I’ve been feeling lately, so there’s that. Let me know what you think.
