Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

Protests in Egypt, Senator Susan Collins and the Internet "Kill Switch" Bill

Click link to read Wired.com's article about the "kill switch" bill, this article also includes links to an open opposition letter as well as a counter letter from the senators supporting the bill.

Petition links coming soon, because I know we're all going to want to petition legislation that threatens freedom of speech by giving the president the ability to shut down the "critical infrastructure," you know, the internet connects a lot of people, institutions, and organizations.

Al Jazeera article about the protests in Egypt.

As the example in Egypt shows, one person with the ability to order the internet off, is a bad idea. However bad that idea, we have the opportunity to prepare for most eventualities and Wired.com is definitely helping with those preparations by offering a how-to wiki titled, "Communicate if Your Government Shuts Off Your Internet".

(*Please Note: We the People of the United States of America are citizens of a Constitutional Republic, a.k.a. The Republic. We are not a direct democracy like some believe. By the Constitution, we are a Representative Democracy. We elect representation to defend the Constitution and the People. We placed our faith with government in the people, not in monarchs, not in career politicians, but in the People.

You want changes? Then, it is time for you to take an active interest in the good of the Republic. Do not leave governance to career politicians. Run for office. Vote for third, fourth, and fifth parties.)

This November vote them all out!
Clean Out Congress or Bust!
