The FCC sided with Comcast and decided to let ISPs censor the internet. The Internet needs to stop this from happening: http://cms.fightforthefuture.org/tellfcc/
Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee.  The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.
We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.
We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. 
This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Just a few hours after star Ryan Reynolds opened up about the reaction to the Deadpool leaked footage, 20th Century Fox has announced they are moving forward with the film and given it a February 12, 2016 release date, just three months before the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Ryan Reynolds is expected to star with director Tim Miller at the helm and a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
I hope he breaks the fouth wall in the movie as well!:D
First this and the Popeye. Is this going to be a thing?
Where studios “leak” test footage to gauge the “ground swell”.
Well blow me down.
oh god please let there be a movie of popeye like this…
Notice how in the test animation, you never see anyone punch anybody. Violence was a frequent source of slapstick in the old cartoons and direct skin contact pulled the best impact. Hell, Popeye has those wide forearms because it emphasized the gag whenever he punched anyone!
If we have a pacifist Popeye
Popeye gets punched @ 2:39. And @2:54 guy was literally wailing on people with a bat.
A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.
Thank you lieutenantnorals!
"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"
this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home
Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??
Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

This is a picture of three people from the Ferguson city commission.
Remember the story of how Ferguson police beat a man and then charged him with bleeding on their uniforms?
See that woman in the picture?
She was one of the cops who beat him.
Seriously what the fuck.
If you weren’t following #Ferguson on Twitter last night, you missed out. The city commission had a meeting where they tried to tell the people they couldn’t talk, but were eventually shouted down. So the All-White-Except-One city council sat there, gave people three minutes to speak, and said nothing, responded to nothing, and did nothing.
A couple of highlights:
A man arrested for peacefully protesting spoke up and said “I’ve done more jail time than Darren Wilson.”
“If Darren Wilson doesn’t get justice, you might as well bring back the army, because it’s going to be chaos,” said another.
ESPN E60 reportedly had a story about a football player from Ferguson who reported a harassment incident with Darren Wilson a week before Mike Brown. (Looked for more reports of this today and don’t see any. Sent a few messages to journalists who were covering Ferguson.)
Several people talked about how the “justice” system (more like “jüstice” system) in Ferguson routinely harasses and exploits people.
The whole thing seemed very organized, with people telling the council (paraphrased): “You’ve done nothing for us, and that’s why you’ve got a murder on your hands. Now we’re coming for you [meaning the various seats on the council]” with one woman in particular saying to the woman pictured above, “We’re coming for your seat first.”
“I have 3 minutes to tell you I am ashamed of every single one of you.”

Bill Maher on the criticism he’s received for his views on religion, his film, Religulous, specifically.
Ok, what about the people who do all those things with non-reliogious motivations? Or how about religious people that don’t do any of those things?
I’m sorry if people use religion to manipulate others…like some people do with patriotism or violence or money…
The key word being people. There is no religion that actually advocates any of the things mentioned unless they have been manipulate by people with agendas.
Because even if we some day live in that “perfect world” without religion, I assume we still want to live by a lot of the same conclusions most religions have come to way beforehand.
By bluntly equating religion with all those things…That’s like some guy dying because he wouldn’t take his medicine, when the label on the bottle clearly says ‘it’s a bad idea not to take this’ …
And all you have to say is, ”Well how good could it have been if he didn’t want to take it any.”
Yes, but without religion, these people wouldn’t have either the excuse of “God commanded me” to fall back on, or, in the case of the Catholics, a massive system that can actually impede justice in your favor. Without religion, these people would not have any of that, and they also wouldn’t have people defending their actions because, “they’re a good Christian/Muslim/Whatever”. Just because removing one factor wouldn’t stop the problem as a whole, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still remove that one factor if it would help.
Edit: Also, Religions have and do endorse these things. Read the bible every once in a while CR. Slavery is in there.
Slavery was a different institution back then. You could be a slave if you fell into debt and had to work your way out of it.
So basically, if you have to keep going to a “Pay Loan” place week after week, you’re a slave.
And there are commandments against just snatching people up and selling them:
“Whoever steals a man and sells him, and anyone found in possession of him, shall be put to death.” Exodus 21:16
