Blogger now blocked by the firewall
This would seem to be an accident, given the firewall is officially only meant to block malicious or the like sites, and blogger is not so

http://Blogger.com / http://draft.blogger.com is either down, or has been blocked by the RSA South African firewall! Please unblock it if 2nd!

Update: it has certainly been blocked by the state firewall, as other draft.blogger.com addresses do in fact work. This would seem to be an illicit blocking.


Update II:  blogger.com, has tested as working now. draft.blogger.com is still registering as blocked.

Update III: draft.blogger.com also seems blocked internationally, it is possible, that the blocking registered would be licit.

EWTN NEWS | 'Boycott highlights Starbucks' radical stance on marriage' by Benjamin Mann | Washington D.C., Mar 24, 2012 / 07:14 am

http://www.ewtnnews.com/catholic-news/US.php?id=5137 "“To say that they respect our opinion, when they've decided to use their clout as a corporation to redefine marriage, makes no sense,” he stated. “The way you respect our opinion is to stay out, not to take a corporate position.”


Brown also accused Starbucks of “lying to its shareholders and customers” in different parts of the world.

“On the Middle Eastern website, Starbucks Corporation says it takes no political stance. This is a political stance.”

“And the reason it does that, is because it knows that in the Middle East, in Southeast Asia, and all these areas, same-sex 'marriage' is overwhelmingly opposed. Therefore, it's telling its customers and shareholders one thing, and doing something entirely different.”

The National Organization for Marriage has never before called for a corporate boycott. It is doing so now, Brown said, because of Starbucks' decision to antagonize many of its employees and customers.

Individuals, he said, have a “right to speak and donate … to any candidate or cause that they choose.”

“It's a very different thing when your corporation itself takes a stand – stands up in the public square and says, essentially, those of us who believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman are wrong, and they are going to fight against us.”

According to Brown, Starbucks' corporate culture is already becoming hostile to many Christians, Jews, Muslims, and others who support authentic marriage.
“I think that's already the case, by their own statements,” Brown noted.

“You can't, on one hand, say you 'respect our views' – and then engage the full weight of your corporation to stand against them in the public square.”"

Supporters of authentic marriage between a man and woman are being urged to “Dump Starbucks,” over the corporation's push to give the institution a radically different meaning.

Kony 2012: "Invisible Children" campaign, a Blatant deception, and hurting Uganda

Kony 2012: "Invisible Children" campaign, a Blatant deception, and hurting Uganda
Portrays a situation from almost a decade ago, no longer in existence, to raise money

The explicit, publicly disturbing, next to naked parading of himself, by the organizer of the Kony 2012 campaign (now in hospital for psychological breakdown), may be getting many stories. The fact, that his Kony 2012 campaign to raise money for his Invisible Children Non-Governmental Organization/Charity : used blatant deception, is less well known.



"Kony's Lord's Resistance Army is a shadow of its former self, numbering about 250 members, according to a December 2011 report published by the Social Science Research Council.

Some 200 of them are with Kony in the Central African Republic, and 50 others are in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the report said.

The video Russell directed, interspersing shots of his own young son with those of suffering Ugandan children, depicts children walking into the city centre of the Uganda city of Gulu at night to avoid capture.

But active violence like that has not been seen in northern Uganda in seven or eight years, according to Laura Seay, a professor at Morehouse College, who studies conflict and community in central Africa."

 Kony, and his LRA are shadows of what they once were, and deep in hiding, not in Uganda. This is a fact to remember, with only 50 troops of the "Lord's Resistance Army" in DR Congo, and 200 with Kony, having fled into the depths of the Central African Republic.



""LRA victims are depicted as absolutely helpless," Seay said, characterising the portrayal as neo-colonial and saying the film may have mischaracterised the nature of Gulu, where the number of children taking nightly refuge dwindled after a truce between government forces and the LRA in 2006.

"You have coffee shops and pizza places in Gulu. It's absolutely peaceful," she said.

Seay suggested that those whose interest in the region were piqued by the Invisible Children campaign turn their attention next to more active warlords in the region such as Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed "The Terminator," and also wanted by the ICC for war crimes.

Ntaganda, a Rwandan operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is accused of conscripting child soldiers under age 15 to carry arms and fight in open conflict.
"He walks freely," Seay said. "I know where he eats dinner every night.""

The anti-Kony campaign has been thrown into turmoil even as the film succeeded in turning the world's attention to capturing an elusive and brutal Ugandan warlord.


Malema: repeats demands that Government take away White land WITHOUT compensation

Malema: repeats demands that Government take away White land WITHOUT compensation
Demands expropriation without compensation, while claiming he "doesn't want to drive whites into the sea"; receives Newsmaker of the Year Award, at the Press Club, in Pretoria ceremony

'"You must never buy the story that we are anti-white and we want whites to be driven into the sea. This is your home, your country and it belongs to all of us," he declared.


"I would die in defence of the white minority - they must enjoy the same rights as Africans. But when we say we must share, it doesn't mean we are fighting - we are actually protecting you," he said.

He insisted that he would never change his mind over the "expropriation of land without compensation", saying the African National Congress should adopt the principle.

"This land was robbed, stolen. A black genocide was committed against those who owned the land ... I will never agree with the rewarding of those who stole our land,"'

Obama Contraception Mandate Against existing Federal Laws, and against USA Constitution- Top USA Legal Experts claim


(SACNS Americas NewsSocial Justice South Africa)

Obama Contraception Mandate Against existing Federal Laws, and against USA Constitution- Top USA Legal Experts claim
No pressing government reason, not least restrictive means (Title X: taxpayer money, it's claimed: would be), against Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, and USA constitution

A relevent side note: Most abortions, tend to occur, when the mother was on contraception already in the month of conception. STDs, such as HIV Aids, also tend to spread more, when condom use is encouraged. Simply put, contraception and "protection" encourages more dangerous behaviour, just as my car's good grip and airbags and seat belt encourage me to go faster. And interestingly enough, tend to have the reverse of the intended effect. More faith is put into them than they really deserve scientifically, and so the effect is the reverse.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's powers to the Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, seem to be being abused by the Secretary, and USA Democrat President Barack Obama, in forcing Catholics and others to pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs. "George Mason University law professor Helen Alvaré", "Michael McConnell, a former federal judge and current law professor at Stanford University Law School ", are two panelists quoted in this view (that the HHS mandate is an illegal abuse), from the 'March 22 panel on “Religious Freedom and Healthcare Reform,” sponsored by the Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs'.
