Somewhere on YouTube, that much I know. 7427185.mov is the only file name in my project file. This file is the NYC Time Square rooftop/window time lapse. If this is your material, please let me know and I will link and credit you!)

NOTE: If you are the original camera man or shooter who got any of this footage in Egypt or Tunisia and you would like your name attached to it, please just get in touch with me and I will add your name above your video! The original shooters of the raw YouTube videos are extremely hard to track down, as they have been uploaded, mirrored, and copied by so many different people. Thank you to everyone whose footage I used in the making of this video. It wouldn't be possible without you.

Woman's Rights / Muslim Woman by Nessrriinn

Woman's Rights / Muslim Woman by Nessrriinn


Alan Grayson, standup politician

Share |


Humor is a much more effective tool than rage, I believe.

 Alan Grayson likes to make jokes about the Republicans...If he doesn't win a
seat as Florida's representative, maybe he'll win a spot on "Last Congressman
Standing" or "America's Got James Talent":

A few weeks ago, the Florida Democratic Party invited Alan Grayson to be the
keynote speaker at the first meeting of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of
Florida. At 8 a.m., it was standing-room-only, as hundreds of people tried to
squeeze into the event.

Alan spoke for almost half an hour, without any notes. Our campaign didn't
record it, but some brave soul in the audience did, and then posted segments
of it on YouTube. So we can offer you Twenty Minutes of Grayson, in pieces,
starting here [
https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/graysononthegop?refcode=national ].


Alan began by talking about the Republican presidential candidates. Here is
some of what he said:

*Sarah Palin:* "I was disappointed that Sarah Palin was not running. But I
understood why. She realized that she count not fit the Oath of Office on her
palm."

*Mitt Romney:* "There's somebody who spends all day trying to figure out
whether he should flip or flop."

*Herman Cain: * "I hope he gets the nomination because clearly, if both
parties nominate African-Americans, every racist in this country will have to
commit suicide. . . .  What is his business genius? That he paid people $8 an
hour to deliver $15 pizzas."

*Rick Perry:*  "Rick Perry tried to pick a fist fight with Ron Paul on
national TV. A 76-year-old man. He doesn't want to just cut Social Security.
He wants to beat up everyone on Social Security."

*Newt Gingrich:* "Somebody said to me recently, 'I actually listened to Newt
Gingrich, and he sounded really crazy to me.' I said, 'Look, Newt Gingrich has
been listening to Newt Gingrich for 68 years. If you listened to Newt Gingrich
for 68 years, wouldn't you be crazy?'"

*Ron Paul:  *"I'm going to disregard Ron Paul, because everyone else does."

*Michele Bachmann:* "I'm not going to say anything about her, because we
actually have an agreement between ourselves. The agreement is that if I don't
tell the truth about her, she won't lie about me."

*What They Have in Common:  *"Their favorite TV show is 'Father Knows Best.' .
. . And to show how 'groovy' and 'with it' they are, their favorite song is
Jefferson Airplane's 'Don't You Need Somebody to Hate.'"

*And this:*  "Last time, the [Republican] nominee was named McCain. Now the
person who is leading in their race is named Cain. You have to consider the
possibility that it's because of the name.

"You have to consider that possibility. It might just be the name.

"And what is that story? I mean, think about it. Why would they be so
attracted to somebody named Cain? As I recall the story, he killed his brother
with the jawbone of a donkey, which probably meant he wanted to blame it on
the Democrats.

"And then when God said, 'Where's your brother?', Cain said, 'Am I my
brother's keeper?' As if he had no idea.

"And that is actually *the fundamental question that separates us from them*,
right?  *Am I my brother's keeper? Our answer is, 'Yes, we are.'* We are."

*FINALLY – A Democrat Who Can Explain, in Simple, Plain Terms, What It Means
to Be a Democrat. Isn't that precisely what we need, what we've all been
waiting for?

Rare Exception to Media Blackout of Media Blackout


Uploaded by on Nov 21, 2011

Local news report was a rare exception to the pattern of mainstream media's blackout of the story that the police were imposing a media blackout. Chris Glorioso's reporting was a rare exception to media blackout of NYPD's suppression of reporting on OWS eviction. SEE Representative Press Blog: http://representativepress.blogspot.com/2011/11/rare-exception-to-media-black...
PASS IT ON: http://tinyurl.com/MSMBlackout

Occupy Crackdown Targets Journalists "For the past two months I have been tracking journalist arrests at Occupy protests around the country. Tuesday, Nov. 15, was the worst day yet in terms of police suppression of the press."
http://www.savethenews.org/blog/11/11/15/occupy-crackdown-targets-journalists
Press Suppression at Occupy Wall Street Raid "Around 1:00am on Tuesday, Nov 15th, the NYPD moved in to clear Zuccotti Park of all protestors and equipment. Over the next 12 hours, both independent and mainstream journalists were prevented from covering the story, and 8 credentialed journalists (including AP, NPR, NY Daily News) were arrested." http://storify.com/bendoernberg/press-suppression-at-occupy-wall-street-raid
"Reporters from news organizations big and small all flocked down to the park once word broke that police were clearing out, and there they found police who were hostile, barred them from entering the area, and even in a few cases, got violent. It was very clear that the police and Mayor Bloomberg did not want the press, or the rest of America to see what was happening here. The mainstream media gave coverage to the fact that the raid happened, but didn't even mention the fact that journalists were being barred from covering it."

Journalists Obstructed at Zuccotti Park "The NYPD has come under fire from journalists for deliberately blocking their view of the overnight eviction at Zuccotti Park. Chris Glorioso was one of the first reporters on the scene, and offers his first-hand account here." By NBC New York "VIDEO: Media Pushed Back from Occupy Wall Street Raid Police and mayor said it was for their protection."
"Several members of the media reported being blocked from covering the Occupy Wall Street raid overnight, with police pushing them back from the action and preventing reporting and photographing ... journalists were detained by police, including AP writer Karen Matthews, AP photographer Seth Wenig and Daily News reporter Matthew Lysiak, the AP said. ... journalists who identified themselves as working for the New York Post and New York Daily News were pushed back by police in riot gear, along with NBC New York's Chris Glorioso." "Using the hashtag #mediablackout, journalists tweeted throughout the raid about their dustups with police."

ISPs versus SOPA: Anti-piracy bill could force severe privacy-invading measures

By Zack Whittaker | November 20, 2011, 12:28pm PST
Summary: Major U.S. web providers are vehemently against the anti-piracy SOPA bill. Now we now know why: because privacy-invading measures have to be implemented, and at a cost.
Internet service providers in recent weeks have spoken out publicly against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which threatens the very free and open nature of the web as we know it.

PROTECT IP Act Breaks The Internet


Uploaded by on Nov 17, 2011

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! - http://www.fightforthefuture.org/pipa
Be a part of American Censorship Day - http://americancensorship.org/
H.R.3261 - Stop Online Piracy Act - http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h3261/show

TechDirt coverage - http://www.techdirt.com/sopa/

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.
