House set to move 'online freedom' bill http://t.co/TDMmNbDf
— The Hill (@thehill) March 24, 2012
A House subcommittee will vote Tuesday on a bill that is aimed at preventing U.S. companies from assisting foreign regimes in removing internet freedom.
From The Hill:
Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) has been pushing the Global Online Freedom Act for several years, but the issue has gained more attention after countries including Egypt and Syria began shutting down Internet access and blocking websites to quell popular uprising.
Pakistan sparked an international outcry earlier this year when it began publicly soliciting proposals for technologies that would allow it to block its citizens from accessing objectionable Internet content.

Burn! Update: The author told BuzzFeed News what pushed her to write the invitation.
1. So you’re planning your perfect wedding, but your estranged parents are begging for an invite. What do you do?
Alyssa Pearce had just this situation, telling BuzzFeed News she suffered “physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of two people who were supposed to love and cherish me,” and was then being “bullied” to invite them to her upcoming wedding.
The 23-year-old wrote about the situation in a Reddit post from five months ago that went viral this week.
3. And so she gave them what they wanted: an invite.
An invite to suck it, that is.
5. Pearce, who is getting a Ph.D. in applied linguistics, was inspired to write the invitation after a family member harassed her to invite her parents, and she said she “snapped.”
“So I went home and wrote my parents the de-invitation. I opened up a Word document, found the nicest calligraphy font I could, loaded up the printer with some of the lovely parchment paper left over from the other invitations, and wrote,” she said. “I then found a nice matching envelope, addressed it with a fancy gold pen, and posted it. I mean, if you’re going to send someone a memorable â€˜stuff you,’ you’ve really got to put in some effort. You may as well go all-out.”
7. In an update on Reddit she added, “The aisle is only wide enough for one awesome person, so I’ll be walking myself down.”
As told by Jonathan Knight from New Kids On The Block and his boyfriend Harley Rodriguez. The pair will compete in the upcoming season.
You may recognize Jonathan Knight from his time plastered on your bedroom wall… more specifically you know him as a member of the boy band sensation New Kids On The Block. Knight will appear on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race on CBS, competing alongside his boyfriend Harley Rodriguez. If there is one way to test your relationship, it’s probably traveling around the world together.
The pair stopped by BuzzFeed Headquarters to share some insider globetrotting training tips they learned while racing around the world, you know, just in case you ever get to compete.
Planes, trains, and automobiles: There’s no room for picky eaters on the race!
Reading a clue incorrectly can be the difference between first… and last.
The packs are no joke, you’ll need to build up your endurance.
Fashion isn’t your first priority here.
You never know what challenges the Roadblocks will hold, so it’s best to be in sync at all times.
May your stomach be iron clad and your taste buds indifferent.
They just don’t build cars like they used to….
Knight: You know who you are.
If they get lost — all is lost.
Object in Mirror is Stupider Than Appears MT @chucktodd so far, the result of GM/Chrysler bailout is as good as any could have hoped
— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) December 9, 2013
“Government Motors” is no more, now that the U.S. Treasury Department has sold off its remaining stake in General Motors. Taxpayers lost around $10.5 billion on the deal, which MSNBC’s Chuck Todd apparently thinks is just about as good as it gets.
Folks may disagree how the GM/Chrysler bailout was done, but so far, the result is as good as any liberal or conservative could have hoped
— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) December 9, 2013
Wow, those hopes weren’t very high, were they?
I'll have what @chucktodd is having.
— Tony Hernandez (@HernandezTony) December 9, 2013
.@chucktodd this was relitigated 1000x over during the 2012 election. Not true that the result is as good as could have been hoped.

@chucktodd I'm not following. The GM mess was a good thing for who?
— Twin66 (@Twin66) December 9, 2013
@chucktodd If losing $10.5 billion to pay off a core constituency of rival party is best "we" can hope for, then "we" are rightly screwed.

@chucktodd Spoken like a died in the wool liberal since it only cost us $11 Billion, yeah, that's just friggin peachy

@chucktodd UST may have lost $10.5B, but at least Detroit didn't go bankrupt! Right?…right?
