Today is Bill of Rights Day December 15, 2011 10:58 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Politics, Touchy Subjects, United States
Today is Bill of Rights Day
Today is Bill of Rights Day. To Americans, the Bill of Rights are key amendments to the U.S. Constitution, that protect our individual rights.
I find it without irony that the US Senate has passed a bill allowing the indefinite detention of US citizens and that the House of Representatives appears ready to pass the bill, and on this very day the House Judiciary Committee is ready to make a vote on SOPA which will dramatically alter the Internet and people’s rights on the Internet.
I like this quote:
It is a curious way to celebrate the 220th anniversary of the Bill of Rights.
- National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 on Thomas
- NDAA moving forward in Congress
- Stop Online Piracy Act
- Kill SOPA, save America’s Internet and American jobs: ACT NOW, bill goes to the House TOMORROW

RIP No Silence Here December 7, 2011 12:26 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Announcements, Blog, Of Interest, Publishing
I cannot seem to get a comment to post on the Knoxnews blog No Silence Here.
"I’m told it will cease to exist." That’s a terrible shame. Blogs, content, are history. Like newspapers of old were archived on microfiche, so should blogs such as No Silence Here be forever archived.
Good luck to you Michael! Thank you for the years of inspiration, links, and ideas.add a comment

The weather is great. I so wish I could be working on the playhouse, the real house, and the yard but instead I’m at Firestone getting new tires on the van and programming on a client’s website.add a comment
