Obama Declares State of Emergency through yet another Executive Order

May 18, 2012 3 comments

Today, May 16, 2012, the United States Premier Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro AKA Barry the Rat signed Executive Order Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen, declaring a State of Emergency in the United States and activating his new dictatorial powers, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code.

Obama says he is going to exercise these powers on the sovereign country of Yemen and “others”.  This is a seizure of all Yemenis owned properties in the United States and the properties of any American with business ties to any interest in Yemen.  This is an act of war…

Reflections over this last semester? Is this what this little report is supposed to be all about? I don’t know what to say really, it’s been a little different for me here towards the end of the semester in Digital Media, as well as in everything else. I think I’m finally getting into the groove of being able to accept things the way they are. At the beginning of the semester (and ever since I started into this course) I was still pretty upset about the way things work in these “Educational Institutions” today because compared to the older styles of education I’m accustomed to and familiar with, well, education today can’t hold a candle to the days when learning was a structured process, a process that was equally effective for pretty much everyone. Back when assignments were, for the most part, flawlessly orchestrated by instructors… when a student would actually have assignments graded and returned with real, actual feedback on if they’d understood one section adequately before getting too deep into whatever came next.

Things just aren’t the way they used to be and it’s unnerved me to no end. In my Digital media class… we spent the majority of our time taking photos and doing the same old design work we’ve already learned in previous classes. We were heading toward some new things, as was supposedly the plan, we were going to be learning to make our own pod cast, we reported on maybe six podcasts in preparation for this, then, I guess the whole idea just faded away. Our final project was to be making a video. We were to find someone who makes their living in the field of digital media, someone whose career is out there online, and make a video interview with them. Somehow that idea expired before we had even done anything at all working towards that end. You never know what may be going on from one week to the next… it’s entirely impossible to plan anything, let alone manage your time, when what you think you’re doing is in a constant state of flux. I just became angrier, and angrier, and angrier with each and every change of plans.

Towards the end of the semester though, I finally began to really start talking with some other students and started to get some insight into how others feel about all these types of situations. There was one student in particular who was incredibly inspirational to me. In watching how they dealt with everything, the scattered, confusing nature of these classes, and for them, also amongst an avalanche of other troubles which caused them to get further and further behind yet they STILL drove forward… upset… yes, but handling it all so well… it kind of changed the whole way I looked at things.

The rest of the semester went pretty well and in the end, well, our final project was in “flash” so I was happy with that. It also gave me the opportunity to play around with the “Audacity” software as well, so, I was glad to be learning at least SOME new things. Amazingly enough, a couple of my other classes seemed to line up with the new attitude I was beginning to develop as well, focusing on several issues relating to communication and such, a wider scope in which to view certain situations and methods others had employed in coping with somewhat similar situations. Overall, I’d have to say it’s been a semester of growth for me personally, and I hope I’ve finally come to a point where I don’t have to go to war with the world over every single thing… I’ve thought this before, but, maybe this time I’ll really rise above all that sort of thing (and all those sorts of people). Let us hope so.

Plans for protest of the latest threat to the free internet. Demonstrate and Boycott supporters of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). Make your voice known to such ebtities as Bank of America, All Chase Branches, the McGraw Hill Publishing Company, CocaCola, Pepsi, Target, WalMart and more. SOPA style attacks on free speech and infringements on what rights we have left must be defeated.

Congress is preparing to soon vote on the Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). This broad legislation would give the government, including military spy agencies, unprecedented powers to snoop through people’s personal information — medical records, private emails, financial information — all without a warrant, proper oversight or limits. Help stop it. Read the full text of CISPA HERE, Sign the ACLU petition opposing CISPA HERE.

CISPA Monitoring Bill: Just the Facts

Internet activists are sounding the alarms on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, a bill that’s headed for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives. CISPA would give private companies new ways to share information about cyber-threats with the U.S. government, and vice versa. Although its purpose is quite different from SOPA and PIPA–the anti-piracy bills that were protested out of Congressional consideration last January–CISPA has angered many of the same opponents due to its promise of broad new powers for the government….

This is my final draft for the “Your Own Country” Assignment.We were to design 1) A flag, 2) currency, 3) Postage, and 4) A Letterhead for our country; explain everything… all  that sort of good ole stuff. So… Uhhh… guess this is it.

My Country is the United Colson Dictatorship, headed by me, Bradley W Colson, of course. It might have sounded like a democracy (as if there’s really such a thing) from my 1-st draft, but nope…. I rule. As noted in my first draft, the theme of my country is “Freedom” and “Peace,” uhhh, kinda sorta, so the”V” for “Victory” (or rather for Vendetta) and the peace sign are kind of a central image or icon for what they stand for and the Latin “Res Ipsa Loquitur” meaning “the thing speaks for itself” (something like that) is my countries motto. Kind of symbolic that there is no deception or falsity to be tolerated in my country.

In the spirit off keeping things real the wave design symbolic of water is also central to my countries designs in everything. The idea is the 1-st cannon of my countries constitution outlines my “You Lie You Die” policy. Lying is something I want to completely weed out in my country so anyone found to be guilty of lying, the willful, wanton, and heedless disregard for the truth, who is bound over for trial shall face trial by water just like in the good ole midieval days.I’ll bless a huge vat of water and the liar will be poked down into it with a big, wooden pole and if the water rejects the person, i.e. if they float, well… their guilty… they’re to be put to death. HEY… seemed to work for Christianity to weed out  all the heretics. I think the policy will do wonders to weed out all the lying pieces of craps as well. So if you’re like… a lawyer, politician, police officer… you know, all those sorts of “so called” professional types… you might not want to move to my country unless you can learn to start speaking the truth. Of course we’ll have treatment centers for pathological liars such as Doctors, University Administrators and all that sort of thing. I mean…I’m all about reform, so, you know…

Lots of work to be done, lots of details to be hammered out, but for now… here’s my money and stuff…
