Read about the behind-the-scenes reactions to Colbert's speech. I did a google news search to check out the media's coverage of the story and they hardly mentioned the Colbert speech. I then realized that on technorati, the blogs, had better coverage of the event. This is sick! It proves that "we the people" are going to do a better job of informing each other than the corporate-owned traditional media. Read more about the media ignoring Colbert's powerful speech here.

Piracy worse than child pornography?

Complete bullshit!!!

It appears that the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) will have a maximum sentence of ten years inside for the crime of software and music piracy. It will also give the FBI the powers to wiretap suspected pirates.

For example assaulting a police officer will get you five years, downloading child porn will get you seven years, assaulting without a weapon will get you ten years and aggravated assault six years.

[But] if you copy Craig David's CD you get ten years, but if you punch him in the face and pummel him into a seven day coma you will only get six.

This is completely retarded (no offence to the mentally handicapped, I'm sure they wouldn't violate civil liberties as badly as this) because the DMCA puts corporate property above the privacy of citizens.

For those that don't know, I am a recording artists (Me! *Colombian Hip Hop*) and I release albums and CD's on a regular basis. But I plan on releasing my next album with this logo (pictured on the right) instead of the fascist FBI logo (above in blue) that treats fans like criminals for wanting to enjoy your music. If your music is good enough the fans will pay for it, what are you afraid of?

Fuck this bullshit! I don't want my fans to face 10 years for bootlegging my music, let them all bootleg it and sell it for gas money. Music is for the people, quote me on that!

Poetry from Illinois: Impeach Bush!

The Illinois state legislature is about to force the U.S. Congress to take up articles of Impeachment. Below is the resolution in the Illinois legislature, never have I ever seen a piece of legislation that read like poetry:

HJ0125 LRB094 20306 RLC 58347 r

1 HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION


2 WHEREAS, Section 603 of Jefferson's Manual of the Rules of
3 the United States House of Representatives allows federal
4 impeachment proceedings to be initiated by joint resolution of
5 a state legislature; and

6 WHEREAS, President Bush has publicly admitted to ordering
7 the National Security Agency to violate provisions of the 1978
8 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, a felony, specifically
9 authorizing the Agency to spy on American citizens without
10 warrant; and

11 WHEREAS, Evidence suggests that President Bush authorized
12 violation of the Torture Convention of the Geneva Conventions,
13 a treaty regarded a supreme law by the United States
14 Constitution; and

15 WHEREAS, The Bush Administration has held American
16 citizens and citizens of other nations as prisoners of war
17 without charge or trial; and

18 WHEREAS, Evidence suggests that the Bush Administration
19 has manipulated intelligence for the purpose of initiating a
20 war against the sovereign nation of Iraq, resulting in the
21 deaths of large numbers of Iraqi civilians and causing the
22 United States to incur loss of life, diminished security and
23 billions of dollars in unnecessary expenses; and

24 WHEREAS, The Bush Administration leaked classified
25 national secrets to further a political agenda, exposing an
26 unknown number of covert U. S. intelligence agents to potential
27 harm and retribution while simultaneously refusing to
28 investigate the matter; and

29 WHEREAS, The Republican-controlled Congress has declined

1 to fully investigate these charges to date; therefore, be it

2 RESOLVED, BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE
3 NINETY-FOURTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, THE
4 SENATE CONCURRING HEREIN, that the General Assembly of the
5 State of Illinois has good cause to submit charges to the U. S.
6 House of Representatives under Section 603 that the President
7 of the United States has willfully violated his Oath of Office
8 to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United
9 States; and be it further

10 RESOLVED, That George W. Bush, if found guilty of the
11 charges contained herein, should be removed from office and
12 disqualified to hold any other office in the United States.


Holy mother of Moses, that was beautiful! They summed it all, the various scandals of the Bush Crime Family. As I mentioned before in ChicoTown.com, a state legislature can introduce articles of impeachment and force Congress into doing the same.

Here's what OpEdNews.com suggests are the repercussions:

If and when Illinois HJR0125 hits the capitol and the individual charges are publicly investigated, that number [percent of those who support impeachment] is likely to grow rapidly. Combined with the very real likelihood that Rove is about to be indicted in the LeakGate investigation, and Bush is in real trouble beyond his plummeting poll numbers.


Call a friend, write your local paper, and make a grilled cheese sandwich, 2006 is gonna be a year to remember!

Graffiti on Bush's Plane!



Air force One got tagged by Marc Ecko!

This is the power of Hip Hop at it's finest.

Don't call it vandalism, call it an act of rebellion by citizens who are concerned with our freedom. (Also it was done by movie editing, Air Force One really wasn't tagged up).

The Iraq War: now THAT is an act of Vandalism! Read my full blog post on DailyKos.com.

Funny Idea: Impeach Money!



Some dude received this bill and he's got it in his wallet. He also predicted:
I have a feeling that a lot of similarly marked bills will be passing through my hands in the future.

Even though he assumes it's illegal to deface currency, here's the actual law:
Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
I'm not a lawyer but as long as the money is still usable then it should be okay. But don't quote me on that and don't say "ChicoTown.com said so" when the police gets your ass... (Click here to read more on the law concerning defacing money)

Otherwise, "modifying" your bills to bring about social awareness in a manner that does not deem the bill unfit for circulation should not be a problem.

*** nudge... nudge... wink... wink...***

I say no more, I don't speak English. You did not read this blog post and you are not looking for a pen or marker to get started immediately on this guerrilla marketing-style assault on the right-wing. And you will not put such bills into circulation.

Good Soldier = Progressive Democrat


Kos explains how his military service made him wise-up to the bullshit of the Bush Crime Family and the right-wing:
There's a reason most vets running for office this year are running as Democrats. The military is perhaps the ideal society -- we worked hard but the Army took care of us in return. All our basic needs were met -- housing, food, and medical care. It was as close to a color-blind society as I have ever seen. We looked out for one another. The Army invested in us...

... The Army taught me the very values that make us progressives -- community, opportunity, and investment in people and the future.

Returning to Bush Senior's America, I was increasingly disillusioned by the selfishness, lack of community, and sense of entitlement inherent in the Republican philosophy. The Christian Coalition scared the heck out of me. And I was offended by the lip service paid to national service when most Republicans couldn't be bothered to wear combat boots. I voted for Bush in 1992, but that was the last time I voted Republican.


I personally wish we all could "come as we are" and not have to conform to one of these 2 parties in order to get elected. A two-sided mafia runs the U.S. government, but running as a Democrat is the best available option for turning back the damage cause by the Bush Crime Family. Kos' explanation couldn't have been better.

Support the dozens of service men/women who are fighting on the front lines of this government take-over by the neo-con rat bastards who are selling us all out for a profit!

Rummy should NOT Resign!

Stop picking on Donald Rumsfeld for the Iraq War mistakes...

Everyone and their mother is picking on Donald Rumsfeld and asking for his head on a platter. From top dog retired Army Generals, to Senators, to candidates for the Senate, to state Governors, to Congressmen, and others (The Rummy Mutiny)... everyone wants Rummy's ass out of the Pentagon for the Iraq war screw-up.

But, says Greg Palast, all of the finger pointing in Rummy's direction is wrong! Here's why:
It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who stood up in front of the UN and identified two mobile latrines as biological weapons labs, was it, General Powell?

It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who told us our next warning from Saddam could be a mushroom cloud, was it Condoleeza?

It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who declared that Al Qaeda and Saddam were going steady, was it, Mr. Cheney?

Yes, Rumsfeld is a swaggering bag of mendacious arrogance, a duplicitous chicken-hawk, yellow-bellied bully-boy and Tinker-Toy Napoleon -- but he didn't appoint himself Secretary of Defense.


Wait it gets better!

Nothing moves or breathes or spits in the Bush Administration without Darth Cheney's growl of approval. And ultimately, it's the Commander-in-Chief who's chiefly in command.

Even the generals' complaint -- that Rumsfeld didn't give them enough troops -- was ultimately a decision of the cowboy from Crawford.

President Bush is one lucky fella. I can imagine him today on the intercom with Cheney: "Well, pardner, looks like the game's up." And Cheney replies, "Hey, just hang the Rumsfeld dummy out the window until he's taken all their ammo."

When Bush and Cheney read about the call for Rumsfeld's resignation today, I can just hear George saying to Dick, "Mission Accomplished."

Generals, let me give you a bit of advice about choosing a target: It's the President, stupid.


Amen to that!

Read the full article by Grep Palast and you'll witness an untold story of the lost opportunity to end the occupation two years ago! It'll piss you off even more!!!


(By the way, Read this OpEd News story for the best break-down of the Bush Crime Family I've ever read!)

Immortal Technique has beef...



... with the racist Minute Men!

Davey D has the scoop:

... Immortal has vowed to go to the borders in Arizona and confront Jim Gilchrist who is the leader of what many describe as the racist Minute Men patrol. That's where Hip HopÂ's beefs should be at this point in time. They should be focused on real enemies who are trying to pass legislation that will have long lasting impact.


Read the rest and check out how the LAPD was trying to shut down the press conference with a helicopter. Hip Hopers need to get involved with this immigration issue (especially Fat Joe, Pitbull, Cuban Link, Daddy Yankee, and more), remember there are more of us than there is of them!

You thought Bush was stupid?



Looks like we're going to invade Australia. It's bad enough that Australians are already feeling the effects of Global Warming, now the average American wants to invade them too.

I blame it on the public education system. We need to hire and retain good teachers the way NASA hires their engineers. The Bush Crime Family and other oppressive regimes depend on an ignorant population to stay in power (read the proof here). If we all start thinking for ourselves we'd actually fight for our freedoms... imagine that!

We can't depend on the government to get it's education system in order anytime soon, so until then: each one, teach one.

Shitting on the "War on Drugs" is going mainstream!

TV and Media personalities want to END Prohibition too!



John Stossel, the "Burt Reynolds mustache"-having ass motherfucker from the Disney-owned, candy ass ABC News '20/20' pussy program recently spoke out against the "War on Drugs".


Walter Cronkite, the ol' skool pimp of news broadcasting, and well respected corporate news talking head who arguably sunk the Vietnam War when he spoke out against it... also recently spoke out against the "War on Drugs".


Bill Buckley, the conservative among conservatives, anti-liberal, Bush Sr. Presidential Medal of Freedom award-winning ass, Reagan buddy, slash CIA agent, slash conservative newspaper editor (National Review) and talking head... also spoke out on the failed "War on Drugs".


Arianna Huffington, founder of the popular liberal blog The Huffington Post, buddy of half of Hollywood (including the likes of Clooney), former California candidate for governor, and all around radio, news, and TV liberal talking head... also spoke out against the failed "War on Drugs".

Its catching on folks! Connect the dots and you'll see that ending prohibition is an issue that EVERYONE from all walks of life should support.

It's not just about weed-heads who want to get high, its about Americans with a conscience standing up for freedom and justice!

Read and see why the War on Drugs is fake!

The real reason for invasion?

Here's a quick one sent in by Frank J. Gonzalez (candidate for congress who'll defeat Lincoln Diaz-Balart in Florida's 21st District) :

The U.S. invaded Iraq...to stop Saddam Hussein from pricing oil in euros. Oil is quoted in dollars. Since the entire world is forced to buy oil, it must exchange local currencies for dollars to do so. This is the real source of America's imperial finance: it exchanges dollars at par, and then gradually devalues them by diluting the world's supply with more. "An exorbitant privilege," said Charles de Gaulle. Saddam Hussein was taken out by U.S. forces because he threatened the empire's money.

Source: Bill Bonner from "Today's Daily Reckoning" Newsletter, dated 1/18/6


One of the many reasons why we went to war with Iraq. Some traditional conservatives (not retarded Bush Republicans) build their ideology heavily on economic matters and they know that inflation of our currency is never a good thing. The Bush Crime Family rapes our national treasury, any private savings accounts you may have will loose value, the rich get richer and your ass will be filling out Wal-Mart applications when you turn 65 because your money lost all it's "buying power".

Think Globally, Act Locally...in Chico Town!

I've been ghost from this blog for a while as I'm dedicating time to local activism here in South Florida. You can catch me at the monthly Democracy for America Miami-Dade meetings, at anti-war rallies on Bayfront Park, and even at marches in Little Havana in support of immigration (pictured below).

This November's midterm elections provide a chance to de-throne the fake Republicans who protect Bush from facing real justice for his numerous crimes against humanity and our civil liberties. But you need to start at home. I'm trying to clean out 3 Republicans from Miami-Dade county.

I'll be blogging at www.TakeBack18.com and building up the web presence for Florida's 18th, 21st, and 25th Districts where incumbent Bush-Republicans sat pretty for the last few election cycles... but not any more!

Blogs can only go so far... sometimes we have to take it to the streets. Go out and join the fight in your local district / county / city / 'hood / block. Go to DFA Link and find a group near you or start the revolution yourself!

Impeach Bush!



Bush is officially a leaker, a liar, and most likely a rat bastard. Have we no shame? Tell a neighbor, tell a friend... Impeach Bush!
