+ - North American Union? The Amero?

Submitted by shdowhawk
shdowhawk (940841) writes "It seems that there is a movement going on set forth by the governments of Canada, USA, and Mexico to merge the three countries together into a proposed "North American Union". Think borderless European Union, but for North America. Is it just me or has no one else heard of this?

As part of this movement, a new form of currency has already begun production in the Denver Mint. Does anyone else think that maybe we the citizens of these countries should potentially get a vote/referendum about something like this?

Here is a link with some videos and more information on a process that already began in 2005: Amero Coin"

+ - Help Save Net Radio

Submitted by shdowhawk
shdowhawk (940841) writes "On March 2, 2007 the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) set in action a bill which increased Internet radio's royalty burden between 300 and 1200 percent and thereby jeopardized the industry's future. There is an online movement currently set up to help protest this bill. http://www.savenetradio.org/ was established to shed light on the situation, to help the protest to save internet radio, and to promote all the bills that have been set up to try and overturn the March 2 action bill."
