Dns Toolbox tell me this IP is a Comcast Business ip address. Anyone know how to find out whose business?
Neil commented on the blog post Live Blog for #Occupy Movement: Occupying the Rose Parade with a Giant Octopus Float
I want to thank Kevin for listening to Al Roker so I don’t have to.
I’m at home on the east coast, following Kevin’s live blog, tuned into NBC with the sound down and watching OakFoSho’s live stream http://www.ustream.tv/occupyoakland (when its up and has sound) and FreedomLA’s live stream http://www.ustream.tv/occupyfreedomla
I’m interested to know 1) how many people are marching the in the Occupy The Rose Parade contingent, 2) other actions today, if 3) the Wisconsin badgers will win the Rose Bowl and whether 4) Americans will come together to save our amazing low fee public universities like UW Madison, Berkeley, Davis, etc. We have many expensive private schools and we have many expensive public schools. What is unique is world class public universities like Madison and Berkeley that are accessible to smart students regardless of their financial status and without withering debt.
Turn the profitmakers away from profitizing public education.
Neil commented on the diary post Bastille Square: a new era for civil disobedience à la française by Waging Nonviolence.
I love the word too and note that their dignity is tied to self-sufficiency, the ability to work and support themselves.
Wow just wow. I did’t know but that’s because been out of pocket. Can’t wait for … the news tomorrow.
I love the spirit of midwesterners. They don’t take any shit and at the same time they’re so nice about it. Call them thugs, and they wear it with a smile like a badge of honor that says, jokes on you asshole. Tell them their city sucks and they set out to prove you wrong. The camera work is impressive asis the coordination of all the scenes and the shear number of people who chose to participate. Yea Grand Rapids.
Neil commented on the blog post Postcard from a New American Progressive Movement: The Wisconsin Strategy
David, this is a great piece.
I’ve been glued to twitter for two weeks following this story, read all the articles, watched online video feeds and still, reading this, I learned so much about the movement I thought I knew pretty well. Terrific!
Now I remember you mentioning DeVos and Grand Rapids. On google satellite, it looks like the beach is especially wide near the breakwater.
Even with a cold wind blowing, a walk on the beach reminds me of the promise of the new season ahead.
Shoveling out from under this years’ frequent and substantial snow storms (including three thunder-snows) has been good for workouts but I’m ready for mud season.
That’s a great photo of you and McCaffrey the MilleniaLab. I didn’t know the eastern beaches of Lake Michigan were so wide in places or that you lived close enough to go there for a walk with McCaffrey.
May it inspire those of us watching from America to reclaim our own democracy.
I’m ready to work for it.
Nip the frame in the bud and cast one that reflects some basis in facts.

Effective activism, on our side. Hit ‘em up…non-violently speaking, of course.

Who wouldn’t pick the underdog at home? Go Bears. I’ll take the underdog on the road too. J E T S Jets Jets Jets.
P – A – T – S PATS PATS PATS. The only thing worse than watching the Giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, was watching the Patriots, with the best record in the league, lose to the Jets in their first round.
Neil commented on the blog post IRA Attack Survivor on Peter “Material Support for Terror” King’s Hypocrisy
I’m not too pleased about Biden using the word ‘terrorist’ to describe Assange. Whatever Assange is, and I would say publisher, he is not a terrorist.
I know it’s too much to ask that the question of whether Rep. Peter King provided material support to terrorist organizations be raised as part of national political debate, and what exactly made the secret service identify him a threat to President Reagan.
Neil commented on the blog post MA Court: Banks Must Own a House to Forclose on It
Good news for the rule of law in property rights. Good news for people who live in homes at risk of being foreclosed, especially people working in good faith to address the financing problem as the banks play them like chumps.

Neil commented on the blog post El País Editor: When Democracy’s Rules Are Flouted, Democracy Is Put at Risk
Since 24 September 2010, the FBI has served at least 24 grand jury subpoenas on students and activists in a secret investigation that many have called a witch hunt. We call upon Attorney General Eric Holder and United States Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to respect the civil rights and free speech of all those who support the Palestinian struggle for freedom by immediately withdrawing grand jury subpoenas which threaten the First Amendment rights of students and activists around the country. src
What’s the standard for obtaining a subpoena for a witness to appear at a Federal Grand Jury?
Fran Townsend on CNN with Glenn:
[The release of the State Department cables] was so vast, of what was public, whether or not it would be useful or no he made no distinctions about the harm he might be doing to foreign governments, to the U.S. government, to diplomats and soldiers around the world.
This is a persistent talking point that is untrue. I want to understand if it is ignorance or willful.
