The One Day Revolution: 535 Citizen Arrests on July 4th

Now, to be clear, we are not calling for violence. We are calling for The People to voice themselves, for The Angry Mob that is sure to be present at each and every 4th of July speech by our "Representatives", to speak loud and clear about how they feel about our current Congress.

It might start with the crowd booing during the Critter's speech.  (roflmao video! Perhaps next time instead of a beach ball, someone will bring a basket of rotten tomatoes ; o ))

It might start when one member of the crowd yells out, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!!!" (video) And then another yells out, and another....

Or maybe it will be the impassioned speech of one individual that will galvanize the crowd (video) into the realization at just how badly they've been screwed, and the realization that we outnumber them!

NiN - We are letting you get away with it : Download Free Album

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails demonstrates what all socially conscious artists ought to do. He's released an album with meaninful lyrics, and is giving it away for free. Not only that, he encourages You to remix it and post it on your blog, podcast it, and basically give it away however you see fit, under a Creative Commons license.

I jut downloaded The Slip and was listening to the song Letting You. I didn't catch all the lyrics so I looked them up, and was impressed enough to want to post this...

The sky is painted black
The smoke pours out the stack
One hand upon your heart
One hand behind your back
You train us how to act
You keep the fear intact
The imminent attack
Everything is right on track

And we are letting you get away
We are letting you get away with it

Old Tom Jefferson Rolling in his grave

... singin', "Who are the Nazis Now?"

the song is by one of my favorite bands, Clan Dyken. Most of their music is rockin, this is a campy folk/polka sing-a-long, but I still love it.
