Of course Protest Music is on topic. But it doesn't have to be both. Protest or Music. Protest is on topic. Music is on topic.

 We have three weeks to save Net neutrality
 
net neutrality sign

The Federal Communications Commission will be voting on considering a proposal that would kill Net neutrality next month. Basically, Chairman Tom Wheeler (former telecomm CEO and lobbyist) has decided that Internet service providers (like Comcast or Verizon) will be able to charge content providers (like Microsoft or Google) for preferential treatment.

The big, rich companies can pay for high bandwidth, small companies like Daily Kos can't. We'll be left in the slow lane. The rules will say that ISP won't be allowed to deliberately slow down traffic from specific sites, but that's the only thing that would be left of the Net neutrality that has allowed the Internet to change the world.

Giving ISPs the power to demand pay-for-priority schemes would be disastrous for startups, nonprofits and small companies, not to mention everyday Internet users.

Help us stop the FCC from crushing Net neutrality. Please sign our petition.

3:08 PM PT: Thanks to all the commenters who note that the final vote on the rule isn't on May 15. But the FCC commissioners will decide at that meeting whether to essentially accept the proposal and put it out for public comment, or sink it and make Wheeler go back to the drawing board. We need to nip this proposal in the bud now.

 40 DEAD VETERANS and a secret list Phoenix
 

You guys remember last November when my husband and I appeared on a CNBC Documentary Death and Dishonor...Crisis at the VA.   Well this thing is getting worse but not from the top.   The states VA  local administrators had a secret waiting list as reported as Breaking News from CNN.  

http://www.abc15.com/...

This is absolutely disgusting !  STOP THE DAMN BONUSES.

Sunlight !!! Shine it bright !!!!  I just received word from a reporter there is supposed to be a hearing on this tomorrow.

The VA requires its hospitals to provide care to patients in a timely manner, typically within 14 to 30 days, Foote said.

According to Foote, the elaborate scheme in Phoenix involved shredding evidence to hide the long list of veterans waiting for appointments and care. Officials at the VA, Foote says, instructed their staff to not actually make doctor's appointments for veterans within the computer system.

Instead, Foote says, when a veteran comes in seeking an appointment, "they enter information into the computer and do a screen capture hard copy printout. They then do not save what was put into the computer so there's no record that you were ever here," he said.

 Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Thank God It's Giovedì"
 

If it's Thursday on The After Show with Wink & Justice; then Thank God It's Giovedì (that's what we call it)!

According to long time Supreme Court watchers, the public clash between Sontomayor, Roberts and Scalia over race is unprecedented; Charles Krauthammer thinks Free Speech is for Big Donors which makes that speech even more free and special; and an Oregon couple whose daughter died of untreated diabetes wants their faith-healing beliefs kept from the jury, the judge has already granted their request to withhold from the jury their conviction and incarceration of a seven year old son who died in 1994 of untreated leukemia.

Our guest today on The Last Half is former Sussex County, Virginia Democratic Chair, Mark Brooks, who will update us on Virginia politics, politicians and the midterm election.

 Updated: BREAKING: Jury awards $3 million in first fracking case
 

When you present the evidence to six people who know nothing about fracking, they find fracking guilty.

I wrote a diary on Daily Kos when Lisa Parr's doctor found drilling chemicals in her blood and lungs. That was back in 2010 when I still had hope that fracking could be done right. I've learned since then that it can't.

Today, a jury of their peers awarded Bob and Lisa Parr $3 million dollars in their fracking lawsuit against Aruba Petroleum. The Parr's attorneys said this was the first fracking case to ever go to trial. I'm trying to verify that.

Bob and Lisa Parr were neighbors to Tim and Christine Ruggiero in Wise County. I was there, in the Ruggiero kitchen, the day Lisa discovered that her timeline of doctor’s visits matched–exactly–Christine’s timeline of releases from the Aruba gas wells on her property.
Like Tim and Christine, Bob and Lisa shared all their information with me and I developed it into a case study for presentation to the EPA at Research Triangle Park and later to Gina McCarthy before she was EPA Administrator. The situation at the Parr's and Ruggiero's homes was so horrific, I even took Cynthia Giles, top enforcement officer for the EPA to see for herself. The Parr's case study was added to others and published by Earthworks in Flowback: How the Texas Natural Gas Boom Affects Health and Safety.
 Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Hip Hump Day Wednesdays"
 

It's "Hip Hump Day Wednesday" on The After Show, where we put the hip back in your hump.

Taking a page from the George Zimmerman playbook, a local chapter of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has set up a neighborhood watch in a Pennsylvania neighborhood; U.S. Rep. Tony Cardenas, a Democrat whose district includes much of the San Fernando Valley, wants to lure the maker of the Sriracha-brand hot pepper sauce to his district after residents in its current Irwindale location complained about the smell; Audio tapes by the husband of Dinesh D’Souza's mistress proves D'Souza knew he was breaking campaign finance laws.

We will also be joined on The Last Half with Daily Kos Staff member and really, really low user ID number, Tim Lange/ Meteor Blades for a discussion about the events of the day.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

 Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Metaphor Mondays"
 

It's "Metaphor Monday" on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Nope. Not today.

Cardinal Dolan defends Hobby Lobby by insisting to a women reporter she can get birth control at 7-11 because that's where he goes to buy rubbers for the toga parties; Virginia white supremacists sneak Easter eggs filled with racist notes into kids’ celebration; and NBC hired a psychological consultant to interview David Gregory's wife and friends on why his ratings have tanked.

Joining us for The Last Half, will be our Netroots Radio Government and World Affairs correspondent, Will McLeod.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

 Jazz: Sir Duke Easter Special
 

Greetings to all the cats out there ready to dig the cool sounds of the eel's hips swinging in the trees. The Easter Bunny done come hopping into town and I’m like doing the eat and greet with relations across the nations. But Jazz gives rest the neyfus, the show must go on….

(I really did know someone who would talk like that)

And so…when one thinks of the great American composers, a few names should automatically come to mind: Copeland, Gershwin…and Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974. Duke Ellington .com

It’s Saturday night as I write this and the Orphan Black season premier has just ended. This isn’t going to be an insightful diary (although I do have a thing or two to say…and none of that will involve questioning the abundance of pre-Christian imagery in the commercialization of what one would assume is the Holiest holiday in the Christian tradition)…it’s a Holiday special and celebration!  Next year in Jerusalem!

Take the orange squiggle to get to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem

 Repeat after me: President. Obama. Is. Black.
 
President Barack Obama bends over so the son of a White House staff member can pat his head during a family visit to the Oval Office May 8, 2009. The youngster wanted to see if the President’s haircut felt like his own. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
Jacob Philadelphia touches President Obama's hair.
I happened to run across this item in the Washington Post this week, Is Barack Obama ‘black’? A majority of Americans say no, penned by Chris Cillizza (Jon Perr has described him as a "conventional wisdom regurgitator"). Cillizza links to data in his article from PEW Research (which gets it wrong) and natters on and on about a topic that should be case closed. We discussed it in Black Kos, and we all had the same reaction.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and young, black Jacob Philadelphia touching Barack Obama's close-cropped black hair said it for me. As Jonathan Capeheart wrote in Photo speaks volumes about Obama and race:

A black man allowing his head to be touched by a stranger. But not just any stranger. A child seeking a familiar link between himself and the black man, who also happens to be the leader of the free world.
I'm already worn out from the relentless racial obduracy of Jonathan Chait, last seen defending himself again on the Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC after his back-and-forth with Ta-Nehisi Coates—who scored point, game match against Chait.  

The rabid racist right-wing in this country already knows that "their" White House has been violated by blackness. The birthers and their ilk still spew venom (see Rand Paul's new pollster). Klan-fueled, white supremacist haters murdered people at a Jewish Center, slayed Sikhs and plot to kill the president. This is familiar news.

That's why the timing of Cillizza's piece is curious.

Could it have anything to do with the recent activities of President Obama and upcoming elections?

Follow me below the fold for more.
