We Need Prayer Back In Schools!

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, October 5, 2016

We need prayer back in schools!,” said someone.

“Okay,” I said. “Whose prayer do you want? The Episcopalians? The Baptists? The Methodists? Church of Christ? What about the Jehovah’s Witnesses? Or the Seventh Day Adventists? Do you want the Primitive Baptists, or the Free Will Baptists? Read the rest of this entry »

Once, upon a time, FaceBookistan held a vote on their Privacy Policy… and there was 0.04% turnout.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Now let’s be honest about this.

How many people here KNEW that FaceBook was conducting a privacy policy vote?

Raise your hands and wave if you did.

How’d you find out?

Did you tell your friends?

Do these issue even raise the slightest bit of concern with you?

Even if these issues do concern you, why doesn’t FaceBook make greater, more significant efforts to inform their user base & general public?

Slowly but surely FaceBookistan is becoming like the elephant in the tent.

Slowly but surely, your privacy is being eroded.

Does anyone really give a rat’s rip?

It has more than 900 million people. It has its own currency. And this month, for the first time, the digital republic known as Facebook held elections of a sort: it offered users a chance to vote on the way the site is governed, including how the company deploys its users’ data.

Turnout was spectacularly bad in the digital republic that the writer Rebecca Mackinnon has dubbed Facebookistan. Fewer than 350,000 Facebook users voted, or under 0.04 percent.

SOPA… exactly what is it?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, December 15, 2011

Unless you work in media, pay attention to issues relating to the operation of the Internet or laws concerning the same, chances are, you’ve probably not even heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) introduced by House of Representatives, or the Senate’s PROTECT IP Act (PIPA).

The title sounds good, doesn’t it?

Who wants online piracy, anyway?

Turns out, it’s a really bad – indeed, a phenomenally bad – idea.

Regardless how you identify yourself politically, the ideas promoted in SOPA are a seriously genuine breach of the Bill of Rights, and Read the rest of this entry »

The Last Fair Deal Gone Down: Robert Johnson, Racism and Abortion

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Late American Blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Robert Johnson, a Negro, died at the tender young age of 27, in 1938. There are less than 50 recordings of his, of which historians are aware. Among musicologists, researchers and others, his performances are considered treasures and remain the subject of great debate, even today.

If Robert Johnson’s mother were alive today, living in New York City and in the prime of her childbearing years, the flower of her youth, and were to become pregnant with him today… Read the rest of this entry »
