Tweet The Fix!

by StormBear

Just a brief diary to help pile on the crashed servers and swamped call centers in DC.

In 1993, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act increased the debt limit in under 140 characters.
http://thomas.loc.gov/...
(HR 2264, Page 343, Line 20 public print version)

It was simple and got the job done. In fact, it was so short, you could have tweeted it! Below is a version based on the 1993 language with a new limit to reflect our current financial crisis.

US Code is amended by striking out the dollar limitation contained in such subsection & inserting in lieu thereof $18 Trillion #tweetthefix

Please post that on Facebook and Twitter. If Congress can't come up with a solution, maybe they will listen to ours. Tweet The Fix!

No, they aren't reading books. Books For Soldiers (BooksForSoldiers.com) also send DVDs and video games to the troops - $2.9 million worth just last year.

2009 is our last year. We will close for good this Christmas unless you help. (DONATE)

Saving BooksForSoldiers.com

by StormBear

If you are unfamiliar with BFS (BooksForSoldiers.com), it is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charity that sends books, DVDs and other care package items to US troops serving overseas.

I started sending books to soldiers during the first Gulf War - many of my friends from college were in the National Guard and were called up for duty. I rounded up a bunch of old books from friends who were still here and mailed them to the Gulf. After 9-11 I knew I wanted to do the same thing again, but I knew I couldn't do it all by myself, so I put together a self-serve website to get the job done.

Somewhere in Iran, there are terabytes of data - unseen photos, unwatched videos and unread words that have captured events that have yet to be seen by those of us in the "West."

The Ahmadinejad regime has struggled to tamp out communication among the Iranian people, now keeping it to a very slow drip. Hardly anything comes out from Iran these days, unlike the deluge that we have seen in the past. Keep in mind, Iran is the biggest blogging nation in the world outside of the United States. The culture there, with a majority of the population being young, is a wired culture. Hell, we are a wired planet, so why should Iran be any different?
