Carbonite CEO David Friend on why the company is still dropping its advertisements from Rush Limbaugh’s show despite his faux apology.
Bravo to Carbonite and their CEO. More of this, please.
“An amendment by Delegate David Englin, Democrat of Alexandria, would have allowed medical professionals to determine whether images can be obtained without being penetrated by equipment used in the ultrasound, women would have to give written consent to such a probe under the amendments, but not to sonograms that aren`t invasive. The amendment failed on a 64-34 vote setting up the bill for final House passage.
So, Republicans of Virginia seriously want a government so big it can literally get inside individual citizen`s genitals by force and without their consent.” -Rachel Maddow, discussing Virginia bill that would force doctors to perform physically invasive ultrasounds on patients considering abortions without consent
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker gets mic checked by nearly 70 people during a speech at Chicago’s Union League Club on Nov 3rd.
From Stand Up! Chicago:
Our protestors attending the breakfast comprised almost half the total number of attendees. After settling into breakfast, and listening to the Governor’s opening remarks, they delivered a prepared statement via “human mic.”
“It is an outrage and a shame,” the statement began, “that we sit at this fancy breakfast to listen to someone who has wreaked havoc on the lives of working families. Governor Walker has vilified unions and insulted the 99% who depend on living wages and adequate benefits to support their families, while on the payroll of the right wing billionaire Koch brothers.”
Walker called upon the rest of the crowd to drown out the voices of the protestors with loud clapping, but they managed to complete their statement and project their voices above the noise.
Long live the people’s voice!
