What’s next? Where will the discrimination end?

 

Civil Rights for Gay CouplesMy life is not that different than yours. I get up (usually quite some time after the alarm has gone off); grab a quick shower and a bite to eat before dashing off to work or school (usually unbelievably late). I work in customer service for a major cell phone corporation as an extension of the management team and take escalations from customers all day.

Overall, I enjoy my job. I come home, eat dinner, watch my DVR recorded TV shows (The West Wing, The Simpsons, and Eureka), read a chapter or two from a book, and fall asleep until the next day. I truly hope that my “gay lifestyle” is not offending anyone reading this quite yet. I have a townhouse near the hospital, a loving partner (Whom I don’t see enough of as I’d like.), and a kitchen table that has more paperwork than the IRS director’s desk. «Read the rest of this article»

Media Consolidation and the Corporate Media

 

TV warningTonight’s theme is media consolidation and the corporate media. I have rounded up a collection of videos from Youtube and Google Video which highlight some of the issues raised by the massive over consolidation of the media, giving a just few companies,  full control over what you see, hear, and read. You only have to look at the recent attempt to rewrite history attempted by the Disney Corporation in cahoots with ABC to see why this should concern all of us. «Read the rest of this article»

Why we really need voter verified paper ballots

 

A Microvote Infinity voting machineThis video says it all. Sure it shows a Diebold instead of a Microvote Infinity, but can we say something like this has not been created for other machines like the Microvote Infinity. Without a paper trail you CAN NOT detect vote manipulation on electronic machines. No matter what the Voting machine manufacturer told you.


It’s time to demand that electronic voting machines are not used in any US or Tennessee elections, until there is a voter verified paper trail, HAVA be damned! Contact your election officials: Vickie Koelman, Riley C. Darnell, Phil Bredesen

 

Let’s Take Back The Tennessee House of Representative Seat for District 78

 

Bruce GibbsIn 2002 a new voting district was born, one that encompassed parts of Montgomery and Williamson Counties, but most of Cheatham County.  This, ignored and least talked about district, even among its constituents, is the Tennessee House of Representative seat for District 78.

How did this district begin being taken for granted you ask, and why isn’t a lot of talk circulating about this district?  Many point to the fact that the 8,050 registered Montgomery County voters that make up part of District 78 are being over looked due to the fact that the majority of the 78th District voters, over 30,000 of them, rest in Cheatham and Williamson Counties. «Read the rest of this article»

Broadband Reality Check

 

Cable wireWith every passing month, the United States falls further behind the global leaders in broadband Internet access thanks to a combination of market and policy failures. Our markets lack the competition to bring lower prices, higher speeds, and universal access. Our policies lack the imagination and potency to create real change. Meanwhile, Americans pay more money for less service than a dozen other nations. A third of U.S households are still stuck with dial-up, and another third lack Internet access of any kind. Our broadband problem is becoming a crisis. «Read the rest of this article»
