Sunday Protest News Round Up

It is Time for All Good People to Come to the Aid of their Country Facebook sells our personal information to private companies and third parties for data mining and continually sell opportunities to hack our private accounts. Their new changes hinder the sharing of hot links, and the linking of important environmental, social justice and other protest movements. Facebooks new policies prevent the aggregation of materials, and mixes the posting timeline as a purposeful effort to prevent interpersonal communication and organizing. Haven't you felt the security captcha's change when sharing important topics? Do you think the Nazi's get banned or security captcha'd when sharing racist and offensive materials? hell to the no. Facebook also has instituted "roadblocks" for accounts that are cited for "spam" which could be even spamming your own profile. These roadblocks force users to "identify" friends in photos. And for activists, that would mean identifying faces produced by facial recognition software in protest photos. Also the algorythims that target activists, seem to miss a lot of illegal racist activities and child pornography, which we have screenshot evidence of. Facebook gladly hands over our personal information to law enforcement, but is silent and untouchable when we need the information on accounts that are violating the law. They have even gutted the reporting tools in response to people demanding that facebook delete racist profiles. While we occupy wall street, we can all send a message to facebook and corporate investor's that we are the media. We will use our accounts to promote social justice and we will use our social media time to share information with others and post prolifically regardless of their roadblocks.

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil OBEDIENCE. Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their governments and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, {and} the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." - Howard Zinn

@ Governor Walker
I really like your Cindy Archer job program.
You started that program by eliminating civil service status for a number of high paying jobs in your administration, and changing them over to political appointments.
Cindy Archer who worked for you in Milwaukee County as your chief aide, was rewarded for her work in Milwaukee by you appointing her as the state deputy administration secretary, at a modest living wage of $124,000 per year.
Not bad work for a non union, non civil servant, political appointee.
Your program is a little puzzling however, since Archer transferred to another one of your politically appointed jobs, as Legislative Liaison at the Dept of Children and Families -- at a lower pay rate of only $99,449 per year. Although the previous person in that position, as a civil servant, was paid $39,128 less for the same job.
I wonder if the difference in pay is being made up by allowing Archer to get back dated on sick pay for 344 hrs and she hasn't even had to report to her new assignment, as she is cashing in that sick pay.
Hmmmmm does she need a doctor's note for being sick? I remember there was a big deal made over the Teachers who were demonstrating your slick Union Busing Program at the State Capitol, being threatened for using sick days, and having dubious doctors' notes!!
Maybe in your next address on jobs, you can tell us how to apply for the Cindy Archer Program -- it sure beats working for a living.
