List of petitions: We petition the Obama administration to: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/#!/petitions

Ask your congressman not to support this!!  This is another way to stop free speech and stop information that the Obama White House doesn’t like from getting out!

URGENT ACTION NEEDED: New Internet Blacklist Bill Could Shut Down Twitter And Youtube!

A bit of an emergency: The rumor all over Capitol Hill is that the House version of the Internet Blacklist Bill will be introduced this week, probably on Wednesday.

Our allies on the Hill say the bill’s so bad that it could effectively destroy Youtube, Twitter, and other sites that rely on user-generated content by making the sites’ owners legally responsible for everything their users post.

Nobody will want to take that risk, so sites like Youtube and Twitter could be forced to shut down.

Facebook, Myspace, and Google+ would be at risk. The cyberlocker and streaming provisions could affect your iPhone, Android, AmazonCloud, Pandora, Spotify, Grooveshark and even your email accounts.

And all of this is being driven by a few major corporations who are trying to protect their private profits.

Will you use the form at right to ask your Congressmember not to cosponsor the legislation, at least until they’ve heard our concerns?

Iceland’s president: Social media turns government into a ‘sideshow’

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/21/tech/innovation/iceland-president-social-media/index.html

Facebook updates and YouTube videos are becoming more important to global affairs than governments, Iceland’s president said this week.

“This so-called social media has transformed our democratic institutions in such a way that what takes place in the more traditional institutions of power — congress, ministries, even the White House or the presidency and the cabinet in my country — has become almost a sideshow,” Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, Iceland’s president, said in an interview with CNN on Thursday at the PopTech conference here in coastal Maine.

“I know it’s a strong statement, especially coming from someone who spent most of his life within those institutions. But the power of the social media is, in my opinion, transforming the political process in such a way that I can’t see any chance for the traditional, formal institutions of our democratic systems to keep up.”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Seems like a good idea, to me. If you don’t have the confidence of your convictions, you’re jut another flamer. REAL freedom-fighters will not let personal accountability be anything but a sign of good character. The Framers and signers of the United States Declaration of Independence were not afraid of RESPONSIBILITY. Lol!
