The people in Egypt are under governmental siege. Mubarak regime is banning Facebook, Twitter, and all other popular internet sites Now, the internet are completely blocked in Egypt. Tomorrow the government will block the 3 mobile phone network will be completely blocked.
And there is news that even the phone landlines will be cut tomorrow, to prevent any news agency from following what will happen.
Suez city is already under siege now. The government cut the water supply and electricity, people, including, children and elderly are suffering there now. The patients in hospitals cannot get urgent medical care. The injured protesters are lying in the streets and the riot police are preventing people from helping them. The families of the killed protesters cannot get the bodies of their sons to bury them. This picture is the same in north Saini (El-Sheikh zoyad city) and in western Egypt (Al-salom). The riot police is cracking down on protesters in Ismailia, Alexandria, Fayoum, Shbin Elkoum, and Cairo, the capital, in many neighborhoods across the city.
The government is preparing to crackdown on the protesters in all Egyptian cities. They are using tear gas bombs, rubber and plastic pullets, chemicals like dilutes mustard gas against protesters. Several protesters today have been killed when the armored vehicles of the riot police hit them. Officials in plain clothes carrying blades and knives used to intimidate protesters. Thugs deployed by the Egyptian Ministry of Interior are roaming the streets of Cairo, setting fire on car-wheels as means of black propaganda to demonize protesters and justify police beatings and state torture
All this has been taken place over the past three days during the peaceful demonstrations in Cairo and other cities. Now, with the suspicious silence of the local media and the lack of coverage from the international media, Mubarak and his gang are blocking all the channels that can tell the world about what is happening.
People who call for their freedom need your support and help. Will you give them a hand?
The activists are flooding the net (youtube and other sites) with thousands of pictures and videos showing the riot police firing on armless people. The police started to use ammunition against protesters. 15-year old girl has been injured and another 25 year old man has been shot in the mouth. While nothing of these has appeared in the media, there is more to happen tomorrow. Will you keep silent? Will you keep your mouth shut while seeing all these cruelty and inhumane actions?
We don’t ask for much, just broadcast what is happening

She is the black mother who was convicted of a felony and sentenced to jail time and probation for sending her two daughters to a school in a different district. As you have probably guessed, the school they attended is safer…
It took her almost a week to come up with a defense for this one, and she’s blaming it on someone else. No surprises there.
Not that I want to keep giving this woman attention, but here’s what angers me about her and why I don’t understand how she still has such support. Number one, she is completely avoiding or missing the point of why her use of “blood libel” is so offensive. Yes, it has been used in political discourse before. That doesn’t justify anything. But more than that, what’s really wrong here is the fact that she used it when the senator herself is Jewish. She’s completely overlooking the connotations here and just trying to justify herself. That is her constant modis operandi. “Other people have done it, why are you accusing me?” She’s constantly making herself the victim when there are other, real victims that deserve the attention she’s getting and bringing on herself. It doesn’t matter if she’s not the only one that’s made a mistake. The fact is one was made, and it’s getting the response it’s getting. If she really wanted to appear “presidential,” she’d earn a lot more respect with sincere recognition of why what she did received negative response, owning it, and apologizing for it.
Number two, what the hell is this “message” the Left is supposedly trying to snuff out? I would honestly be interested if someone can show me somewhere she clearly states it. Because everything I’ve seen is a lot of vague, general statements about “revolution” and “taking things back” without explaining what she’s trying to revolutionize or why specifically it needs “revolution,” other than the fact that it’s the Left and they are the enemy and what they’re doing is “wrong.” I’ve never seen her explain herself clearly and without making excuses or playing a “victim.” For all she talks about America being such a great country, she spends an awful lot of time demonizing half of it. So really, the conservative, hyper-Christian, white, privileged, straight, cis-gendered part of America is a great country. The rest is out to eat your children.
Number three, once again, just because something has been done before does not justify it or make what you did any less blame-worthy. The Democrats using crosshairs wasn’t a good decision either, and yes, the Palin graphic happened to get more attention because of what happened. But okay, it’s happened, opinions have been formed, it’s not going to change to say “but I’m not the only one that did it.” The point is, you did it. And it was a bad decision. Own up to it and apologize for it and move the fuck on. You are actually the one drawing more criticism to yourself, and attention to the bad decision you made, by continuing to try to justify it and appear falsely accused.
Anyway, I could rant about Palin for hours every time I see her name pop up somewhere, but I’m sick of all this tea party bullshit so I needed to spew.
