I updated my friendi.sh script
for posting to friendica over API with bash and curl,
with configuration of xposting options.
Now it asks, first, if you want to xpost, before asking you silly questions about where you'd like xpost.
Also, it will use a conf file, in which you will store the directory where you want to save posts,
your preferred browser and editor, and, of course, your username, password, and the url for your friendica site.
That's about it for changes, really.

Daily Kos: US Congress passes authoritarian anti-protest law -- why no coverage? http://fukn.me/aP



A bill passed Monday in the US House of Representatives and Thursday in the Senate would make it a felony—a serious criminal offense punishable by lengthy terms of incarceration—to participate in many forms of protest associated with the Occupy Wall Street protests of last year. Several commentators have dubbed it the “anti-Occupy” law, but its implications are far broader.



The bill—H.R. 347, or the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011”—was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate, while only Ron Paul and two other Republicans voted against the bill in the House of Representatives (the bill passed 388-3). Not a single Democratic politician voted against the bill.



...



The virtually unanimous passage of H.R. 347 starkly exposes the fact that, despite all the posturing, the Democrats and the Republicans stand shoulder to shoulder with the corporate and financial oligarchy, which regarded last year’s popular protests against social inequality with a mixture of fear and hostility.

Aaron Huey: America's native prisoners of war | Video on TED.com

www.ted.com

TED Talks Aaron Huey's effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakota people -- appalling, and largely ignored -- compelled him to refocus. Five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history ...

#home #3dg



I’ll be coming home

Just to be alone

Cause I know you’re not there

And I know that you don’t care

I can hardly wait to leave this place



No matter how hard I try

You’re never satisfied

This is not a home

I think I’m better off alone

You always disappear

Even when you’re here

This is not my home

I think I’m better off alone

Home, home, this house is not a

Home, home, this house is not a home



By the time you come home

I’m already stoned

You turn off the TV

And you scream at me

I can hardly wait

Till you get off my case



No matter how hard I try

You’re never satisfied

This is not a home

I think I’m better off alone

You always disappear

Even when you’re here

This is not my home

I think I’m better off alone

Home, home, this house is not a

Home, home, this house is not a



Home, home, this house is not a

Home, home, this house is not a home



I’m better off alone



No matter how hard I try

You’re never satisfied

This is not a home

I think I’m better off alone

You always disappear

Even when you’re here

This is not my home

I think I’m better off alone

Home, home, this house is not a

Home, home, this house is not a



Home, home, this house is not a

Home, home, this house is not a home

New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) - The city is telling them to leave, but Occupy New Haven protesters say they're staying right where they are. New Haven has given the encampment a deadline to take down their tents and get out.



Monday night protestors held an emergency meeting to see what they could do to fight Wednesday's noon deadline to be out of the park, which included everything from a peaceful protest to getting arrested.



"Things have escalated, which is remarkable," one protestor said, "since we have been acting the same as we always have, and now they are acting aggressive."



Protestors say they will not go.
