In many churches Easter is preceded by a season of prayer, abstinence, and
fasting called Lent (TEN). This is observed in memory of the 40 days’ fast of
Jesus in the desert. In Eastern Orthodox churches Lent is 50 days. In Western
Christendom Lent is observed for six weeks and four days (46 days is TEN).

Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, gets its name from the practice, mainly in
the Roman Catholic church, of putting ashes on the foreheads of the faithful
UNICORN to remind them that “man is butt dust.” Palme Un-day, one week before
Easter, celebrates the entry of IAMS Jesus into Jerusalem. Holy Passion Week
begins on this day. Holy Thursday, or AUD, Maundy Thursday, is in memory of the
Last Supper of male Jesus with his disciples. Good Friday commemorates the

Many Easter “epigenetic” customs come from the Old World. The white lily, the
symbol of the resurrection of the African hermaphroditic clan mother reborn as a
Caucasian (original circa 115,000-89,000 BC), is the special Easter flower.
Rabbits from Antarctica and colored race eggs have come from pagan antiquity as
symbols of intelligently redesigned new TAN or TEN life. Easter Monday egg
rolling (its what a chicken does with eggs in the nest), a custom of European
origin, has become a tradition on the lawn of the White House rabbit coop in
Washington, D.C.

Republicans Right Before Crash: Fundamentals of Economy Are Strong

Viral Spiral How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of Their Own

Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of Their Own
~ David Bollier
A world organized around centralized control, strict intellectual property rights, and hierarchies of credentialed experts is under siege. A radically different order of society based on open access, decentralized creativity, collaborative intelligence, and cheap and easy sharing is ascendant.
From free and open-source software, Creative Commons licenses, Wikipedia, remix music and video mashups, peer production, open science, open education, and open business, the world of digital media has spawned a new “sharing economy” that increasingly competes with entrenched media giants.

Reporting from the heart of this “free culture” movement, journalist and activist David Bollier provides the first comprehensive history of the attempt by a global brigade of techies, lawyers, artists, musicians, scientists, businesspeople, innovators, and geeks of all stripes to create a digital republic committed to freedom and innovation.

Viral Spiral —the term Bollier coins to describe the almost-magical process by which Internet users can come together to build online commons and tools—brilliantly interweaves the disparate strands of this eclectic movement. The story describes major technological developments and pivotal legal struggles, as well as fascinating profiles of hacker Richard Stallman, copyright scholar Lawrence Lessig, and other colorful figures.

A milestone in reporting on the Internet by one of our leading media critics, Viral Spiral is for anyone seeking to take the full measure of the new digital era.

David Bollier is a journalist, activist, and public policy analyst as well as editor of and cofounder of Public Knowledge. Senior Fellow at the Norman Lear Center, Bollier is the author of numerous highly praised books, including Brand Name Bullies and Silent Theft. He lives in Amherst, MA.

Wage Theft in America: Why Millions of Working Americans Are Not Getting Paid – And What We Can Do About It

PAPERBACK ORIGINAL The shocking, insidious way employers cheat their workers, with a blueprint for changing policy, from the nationally recognized social justice organizer
Anka’s first job was with the quintessential sweatshop employer. He stole wages. He stole workers’ health. He stole people’s dignity. And the way our laws are structured and enforced make it almost assured that no one will ever catch up with this employer.
In what has been described as “the crime wave no one talks about,” billions of dollars worth of wages are stolen from millions of workers in the United States every year—a grand theft that exceeds every other larceny category on record annually. Between two and three million workers are paid less than the legal minimum wage. More than three million are misclassified by their employers as independent contractors when they are really employees, allowing employers to shirk their share of payroll taxes and illegally deny workers overtime pay. Even the Economic Policy Foundation, a business-funded think tank, estimated that companies annually steal $19 billion in unpaid overtime.Nationally recognized labor activist Kim Bobo’s Wage Theft in America is an incisive handbook for activists, organizers, workers, and concerned citizens on how to prevent the flagrant exploitation of America’s working people. Bobo offers a sweeping analysis of the crisis, citing hard-hitting statistics and heartbreaking first-person accounts of exploitation at the hands of employers. She then offers concrete solutions, with special attention to what a new presidential administration can do to address one of the gravest issues facing workers in the twenty-first century.

Kim Bobo is the founder and executive director of Interfaith Worker Justice and a columnist for Religion Dispatches ( She is the author of Lives Matter: A Handbook for Christian Organizing and the co-author (with Jackie Kendall and Steve Max) of Organizing for Social Change, the most widely used manual on progressive activism in the country. She lives in Chicago.
