This space has been OCCUPIED~!

I will have to say I do not always agree with the RT network.  However, after taking this quiz and another which examine your political stances with those of candidates running, I find I have more in common with “fringe oddballs” than I do with the two mainstream parties.   So tonight, I am going to be watching this debate featuring Dr.  Jill Stein and Governor Gary Johnson, two Presidential Candidates not given the same media coverage as those other two guys.   Read the rest of this entry »

Wisconsin…

Posted by invizweb on March 1, 2011

Aside from Rachael Maddow’s show, MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, and most major news outlets here in the States, have basically blackout coverage of the protests in Madison, Wisconsin.   Here at the Invisible Web, however, we will cover the story of unions fighting for the working class struggle against an uncompromising governor and a media which does not want to talk about what some call “Cairo of the United States.”  A video covering the protests after the jump.

Internet Censorship and Copyright Bill

Posted by invizweb on October 3, 2010

The following post is from the Electronic Frontier Foundation site here:

The “Combating Online Infringements and Counterfeits Act” (COICA) is an Internet censorship bill which is rapidly making its way through the Senate. Although it is ostensibly focused on copyright infringement, an enormous amount of noninfringing content, including political and other speech, could disappear off the Web if it passes.

The main mechanism of the bill is to interfere with the Internet’s domain name system (DNS), which translates names like “www.eff.org” or “www.nytimes.com” into the IP addresses that computers use to communicate. The bill creates two blacklists of censored domains. The first is longer, and includes any sites where the DOJ decides that infringement is “central” to the purpose of the site. The bill gives ISPs and registrars strong legal incentives to censor the domains on that list. The Attorney General can also ask a court to put sites on a second, shorter blacklist; ISPs and registrars are required by law to censor those sites.

A Democracy…

Posted by invizweb on July 4, 2010

2010 Addendum:  Rather than repost my original post over I have decided to timeshift the revision with this addendum.   Each year on the Fourth of July I exemplify “Americana” with my First Amendment rights by acknowledging some of the most atrocious events in 20th Century United States history perhaps to redress grievances.  Also, the old adage is, “Those who do not learn from the Past are Doomed to repeat it.”  In this era of unpunished financial scams, corporate vainglory, and “Soviet spies” this holds especially true.

Here is a followup to last year’s postRead the rest of this entry »

1970 Kent State Shootings are an Enduring History Lesson

Posted by invizweb on May 6, 2010

By Rick Hampson, USA TODAY:

Forty springs ago, on the day the Vietnam War came home as it never had before, Mary Ann Vecchio was there. She’s the girl in the haunting photo — crying, kneeling over the student’s body.

That was Kent State University, May 4, 1970, a few days after Richard Nixon, who’d campaigned for president on an implicit promise to end the war, widened it by invading Cambodia.

Across the nation, students protested. At Kent State, where two days earlier the ROTC building was burned down, National Guardsmen fired into a crowd and killed four unarmed students, the closest of whom was nearly a football field away.

Vecchio found Jeffrey Miller dead on the ground, a moment captured by a student photographer.

Rarely has an American home front been so traumatized — Yale historian Jay Winter calls the Kent State shootings “a wound in the nation’s history” — and for a time the school was so ashamed it shortened its name to “Kent,” changed its logo and ended its annual May 4 observances.

But things have changed in 40 years, during which the United States left Vietnam and entered Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, a campus that unwillingly became synonymous with protest is more focused on remembering opposition to that war than opposing the current ones.

Unlike Vietnam, the wars America now fights have never really come home. Students don’t worry about getting drafted. The campus anti-war group is inactive. The big cause is Haiti, the big issue the cost and availability of parking.

“There’s no strong opposition to it,” junior Kassandra Meholick says of the fighting today, “and no strong support for it.” Read the rest of this entry »
