AdLib On January - 23 - 2010

PlanetPOV hosts a diverse community made up of real people (not talking heads, pundits or celebrities) who share in common a genuine concern for the world around them.

The unique insights and dynamic discussions that take place at PlanetPOV combine to create a citizen’s think tank here that can be tapped to develop and pursue initiatives on issues that matter to members.

This category, Take Action!, is the place where letters, petitions, white papers, projects, etc. created by this community will be posted when completed, for all members and visitors to support as they choose. You can find Take Action! on the Category Bar at the far right. For your reference, here is the link: http://planetpov.com/category/take-action/

By providing this additional aspect of activism, members of PlanetPOV can truly make a difference and allow their actions to speak even louder than their words.

    I don’t know if this is the place to say it, yet I believe I’m speaking on behalf of all the others when I say:

    WE ADORE YOU ADLIB! You’re the greatest!

    …. Now, about that position of POV WH correspondent. I figure I’ll need head-to-toe Chanel (yes, nothing has changed since last summer, I just recycle my requests cause sometimes… I get lucky).

  2. Kalima says:

    We will have to do better than that, with mine just now, we only have 3 Diggs. Come on everyone, Digg away!

    How to DIGG an article at the Planet:

    Just below the star rating and the thumbs up thumbs down is a row of icons. These are share icons. The second one is for DIGG

    If you want to DIGG AdLib’s Corporations Are People, Too — go to the article and click the DIGG icon. You’ll be taken to the the DIGG website. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up, and then you’ll be asked how you want to submit the article. It’s easy!

    Kalima, if you run into a problem, let me know!

  4. Kalima says:

    I’ve been a member of Digg since last August and have tried to submit articles from here twice but failed as it is not the same process as the last place I blogged. Just thought that AdLib’s post would be read by many there too.

    • nellie says:

      We have share buttons at the bottom of each article — We should be able to send to Digg.

      And… it’s sent!

    • nellie says:

      Digg is a great idea. Let me try it.

      • Kalima says:

        It didn’t work for me, maybe I wasn’t doing it right in the first place. 😳

        That would be good nellie, thanks.

        • bitohistory says:

          I had to register. That thing is cantankerous!
          I think it worked. (?)

          • Kalima says:

            It was so easy at another place I blogged, you just had to Digg it on the Blog and it would take you to a submitted article on the Digg site, where you just had to digg it again.

            When I tried to submit from here they wouldn’t accept the title. I tried for 30 minutes, swore loudly at my computer screen and had a cup of tea instead.

        • nellie says:

          it worked for me! :mrgreen:

          • Kalima says:

            πŸ˜† Ok nellie, don’t rub it in!

            Where is it so that I can go to Digg it?

            • nellie says:

              Do you have an account? we want as many people to digg as possible….

              Then you can rub it in, too!

            • nellie says:

              I did the same thing just now — I tried to sign up with my already registered user name. Luckily, I remembered the password — after a few tries…

              So you’re not alone πŸ˜‰

            • Kalima says:

              Yes, my name there is Kalimatoo, they said kalima was already taken but it was me a week before messing up. :(

  5. bitohistory says:

    OK. This is the place to take action! Send a copy to your Senators and Rep!
    DO IT!

  6. bitohistory says:

    nellie, How many people have sent AdLibs post “Corporations Are People Too” to other sites, newspapers and other media? I have sent it to 4.
    Do we need to ad links to a site to take action? Like Rep. Graysons petition?
    Edit: should someone send it to Grayson? Cool house speech during the 1 minute morning speeches! I could see him reading it!!

    • Hopeington says:

      I left a comment and link to it over at Veterans Today, in one of Gordon Duff’s articles about arresting the 5 that voted for this atrocity.

    • nellie says:

      I don’t think Grayson is going to say “kiss my ass” on the senate floor, but he’d probably love the sentiment.

      I think we should send it wherever we want — Stephanie Miller’s radio show, Thom Hartmann would love it, Chris Matthews would probably appreciate it. If anyone’s on facebook, that’s a good place for it to go viral.

      For my part — I think we should send it to all nine justices of the Supreme Court. I’ll see if I can find contact information.

      • Hopeington says:

        Those are the PERFECT people to send it to Nellie!
        Why not?
        And Grayson could just leave the last word off, I’m SURE the word will flow into everyone’s mind.

        • nellie says:

          There’s a decorum on the senate floor — I don’t know. I wouldn’t wait for it to be read. But who knows.

          I like the idea of sending it to the Supremes because the logic is so straightforward and solid — it shows so clearly that their reasoning is utterly specious.

          I feel we should also send this to the ACLU — who supported this decision. I can’t imagine why they think speech = money, or why they think corporations = people. They need to hear from us.

      • bitohistory says:

        Kiss my glass works for me. Point Made!

        • Kalima says:

          I prefer the word “arse” myself or we could use the German word “arschloch” but it doesn’t really rhyme with anything.

          • bitohistory says:

            My German is a bit rusty Kalima, but I think that says more than arse. πŸ˜€

            • Kalima says:

              Not as rusty as you might think bito, and yes it does. :)

              Hard to rhyme the last 4 letters but you would pronounce it the same as the Loch in “Lochness Monster.”

            • Kalima says:

              Yes of course, I had forgotten about that. :(

            • bitohistory says:

              No, just Pa. German wasn’t real popular in the 50’s.

            • Kalima says:

              πŸ˜† My kind of guy, didn’t you call him Opa?

            • bitohistory says:

              I looked at it a few times and thought “I think Pa used that word”
              πŸ˜€ (Pa= my German Grand-father

    • BigDogMom says:

      Hey bito, why not send it to Franken, I would to hear him read it….or do you think he has put his SNL days behind him?

      This is wicked cool! 😎

      • bitohistory says:

        BDM, Good Idea, Mom, I think we should all send it to each of our Reps and Senators. I would love to see KYL’s pasty face! AdLib should be the one to send it to Grayson!

        • BigDogMom says:

          My dear Senator Lieberman, doesn’t read his constituents mail or takes their phones calls…Dodd on the other hand might just get a kick out of this, what the heck, he’s leaving, no skin off his nose to read it on the floor of the Senate.

  7. AdLib says:

    BTW, Thanks to SueInCa for suggesting the name and concept!

    We previously established ProjectPOV as the development area for our projects (participation at ProjectPOV is limited to Authors, if you are not one or don’t know if you are, please don’t hesitate to email me at [email protected] to inquire on becoming one and participating).

    Having this category with this self-explanatory name for people to visit and personalize/sign/circulate completed letters and petitions or participate in initiatives makes a lot of sense.

    What a luxury it is to have a Citizen’s Think Tank thinking about how to set up a Citizen’s Think Tank!
