At the risk of sounding left of left, which only a few decades ago was center, I have a couple of issues that are troubling me. The twenty something generation, two of which I am responsible for, has grown up in a culture of endless war. As most kids develop, they start to become aware of society in general at about ten years old, so if you were born in, say 1992, as you reach your twenty first birthday you cannot remember a time when your country wasn't somewhere fighting someone. Peace would seem an odd thing indeed. Add to the fact there is no individual forced involvement with these wars (draft) it's not something kids give much thought to. The only kids aware of our endless war are the ones that can't find work and join the military or are persuaded to join with glamorous marketing images implying warfare is like your favorite video game. Once in, our Faustian military policy makers employ what is referred to as "the back door draft", meaning multiple

A chain of Catholic Hospitals has beaten a malpractice lawsuit by saying that fetuses are not equivalent to human lives. According to the Colorado Independent, in the death of a 31-year-old woman carrying twin fetuses, Catholic Health Initiatives’ attorneys argued that in cases of wrongful death, the term “person” only applies to individuals born alive, and not to those who die in utero.
Lori Stodghill was seven months pregnant with twin boys on the day she died. The Independent reported that on New Year’s Day 2006 in Cañon City, Colorado, Stodghill was admitted to the Emergency Room at St. Thomas More Hospital complaining of nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath. She lost consciousness as she was being wheeled into an exam room and ER staff were

Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership!Several large corporations are in the process of making a pact to work together and function like a single corporation, and entirely without government intervention or regulation... Many things hang in the balance, freedom of information being only the beginning. Monopoly is illegal, but corporations are finding ways around it by marketing each others' products and creating interconnecting trade agreements... please sign here to make sure the Trans-Pacific Partnership holds corporations accountable! http://www.avaaz.org/en/stop_the_corporate_death_star/?bdcoYcbMore Like This
Amend Congress 'Anti-Protest Bill'In March, Congress passed a bill making public protesting in the vicinity of Secret Service agents a felony. This tramples on our constitutional right to free speech as well as our right to peaceably assemble, but because of all the focus on ACTA and other outrageous cybersecurity bills, the "Anti-Protest Bill"(H.R. 347) didn't get any media attention. Now, though, it is finally coming to light, and Watchdog.net has started a petition to amend H.R. 347 to ensure that peaceful protests cannot be criminalized.

They are, basically, overriding the congress and creating an executive order to do something about the internet.
This is basically like CISPA with an executive order!
Also, the house is doing a vote on FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act)
