NRDC Save BioGems Urgent Alert: Whales in Danger

PLEASE SIGN - Help Save Endangered Belugas!

The Apache Alaska Corporation has launched a deafening airgun assault as it explores for oil and gas in Cook Inlet, Alaska—home to a struggling population of 312 endangered beluga whales. At close range, the intense noise from airguns can cause injury, hearing loss and even death. Tell the Obama Administration to withdraw its approval for this devastating onslaught before it pushes the last Cook Inlet belugas one tragic step closer to extinction.

Bulworth:
Telecommunications is the name of the beast,
That’s eating the world from the West to the East.

The movies, the tabloids,. TV and magazines,
They tell us what to think and do
And make our hopes and dreams.

All this information makes America fat,
But if the company’s out of the country,
How American is that?

We got Americans with families
Can’t even buy a meal.
Ask a brother who’s been
Downsized, if he’s gettn’ any deal.

Or a white boy bustin’ ass,
Till they put him in his grave.
He ain’t gotta be no black boy
To be livin’ like a slave.

Rich people’ve stayed on top, dividing white people from colored people. But white people’ve got more in Common with colored people than rich people. We’re just gonna have to eliminate ‘em.

White people.
Black People, too.
Brown people,
Yellow people.
Get rid of 'em all.

We need a voluntary, free Spirited,
compatible, open ended program of
procreative racial deconstruction.

Everybody just got to keep fucking everybody
till we’re all the same color.

Mayor Bloomberg: End the racist stop-and-frisk program

In New York City, it’s getting harder and harder for innocent people to avoid being stopped and humiliated by police, especially if they’re black or Latino. In 2011 alone, New York police officers stopped, questioned, and often frisked New York City residents and visitors a record 685,724 times, reaching seven times the total of 2002, when Mayor Bloomberg first took office. Between 2002 and 2011, black and Latino residents made up close to 90 percent of the people stopped. About 88 percent of stops–more than 3.8 million–were of innocent New Yorkers. The evidence that New York police officers are racially profiling is piling up, which is why the City Council approved two bills to rein in the stop-and-frisk program. Bloomberg has the opportunity to end his term as mayor on the side of justice, but he continues to defend the woefully misguided, ineffective, and racist program, saying he’ll veto the bills and use his personal fortune to lobby against them. He even suggested that the NYPD doesn’t profile enough, telling a local radio host “I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.” As more and more innocent New Yorkers are stopped by police and as the City Council votes to end the racism of stop-and-frisk, it’s clear that the tide is turning against the program. But if Mayor Bloomberg continues to defend the program, it could prove expensive for the city as lawsuits continue to mount and unjust to the hundreds of thousands of innocent people of color who are stopped. If enough of us demand Bloomberg end the racist stop-and-frisk program and expose it as the failure it has been, we can ensure he understands the choice he makes about his legacy. He can stand on the side of discrimination and prejudice like those who defended segregation in its twilight years, or he can stand on the side of justice and the rule of law. Join me and stand for equality and justice in New York by signing my petition calling for Mayor Bloomberg to end stop-and frisk now.
