This is all from Chuck, and I am so grateful for it all. :)

-- Another new internet legislating law is making its rounds, and this time it is even more outrageous. The "Six Strikes" law would punish those accused of copyright infringement by restricting their internet access. To contest their accusations, you would have to pay a fee.

-- This is what Democracy feels like.

-- 31 corporations and banks dodged $128 BILLION in taxes this year. Care to see which ones shirked their responsibilities as American companies? Look here.

-- If Congress doesn't reach an agreement by March 1st, "automatic" spending cuts will fall into place, cutting $85 Billion from critical programs for the poor, unemployed, and children. How will this affect them? Here's a discussion of the damages that would result from these cuts.

-- A reminder from Patti Smith of who really has the power in this world.

-- An amazing revolution is taking place in Spain, and the photos and stories from the events are streaming out of the cities. Check it out here.
