… We can and should cut spending on war preparations, wars, foreign bases, spies and assassins, prisons, the drug war, highways instead of green transport, etc. We should move the money into expanded useful programs funding human needs and green energy. …

Pass VAWA | Sign the Petition!

Domestic abuse is inexcusable. And so was Congress’s failure to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) last year.

VAWA lapsed because some extremists objected to extending its protections to immigrants, Native Americans, and the LGBT community. But now it’s time to bring VAWA back — and protect every American.

I’m raising my voice in support of the Violence Against Women Act because it’s time to fight back against domestic abuse. No excuses, no exceptions, no delays: PASS VAWA NOW!

Kim Dotcom: the internet cult hero spoiling for a fight with US authorities | Technology | guardian.co.uk

… The case against Dotcom and his allies rests on proving that they were profiting, knowingly and willingly, from the illegal sharing of copyright-protected material – in effect, that the exchange of pirated goods was part of the Megaupload business model. “That’s complete bullshit. Excuse my language, but that’s just crap,” says Dotcom.

“Megaupload was created initially as a service that allows you to send large files because email attachments had limitations … and that’s still the case today. The popularity and initial growth was all around that. This was never set up with the intent to be some kind of piracy haven. If the US government says that we are a mega-conspiracy, a mafia that has created this kind of thing to be a criminal network of pirates, they’re completely wrong … for them it was about shutting it down and dealing with it later on the fly. They are hacking the legal system.” …

Bulgarian police detained a man after he pointed a gas pistol at an ethnic Turkish party leader who was delivering a speech at a party caucus in the capital Saturday. No shots were fired. The video from Saturday’s event in Sofia shows the man climbing the podium where Ahmed Dogan, the leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, was speaking, and pointing the gun to his face.

Dogan struck the man before he could pull the trigger, and other delegates wrestled the assailant to the ground. TV footage showed several people punching, kicking and stomping on the man when he was on the ground.

Police arrested him and took him to a hospital. It wasn’t immediately clear if he sustained serious injuries, or how he got past security to enter the hall with nearly 3,000 people attending.

Eventually, the attacker was identified by police as 25-year-old Oktai Enimehmedov, a Bulgarian national and ethnic Turk, from the coastal city of Burgas. He was carrying the gas pistol and two knives. A gas pistol is a non-lethal weapon used for self-defence, but experts say when fired from close range it can cause life-threatening injuries.

Interior minister Tsvevtan Tsvetanov told journalists that the assailant had a criminal record for drugs possession, robberies and hooliganism.

The liberal MRF party mainly represents ethnic Turks and other Muslims in Bulgaria, who make up 12% of its 7.3 million population. …

Telling people what they must and must not do isn’t religion, and it certainly isn’t spirituality. It’s politics.
