The Day We Fight Back: Protest NSA Surveillance on Your Blog

Totally agree. Support!!

The WordPress.com Blog

Today, a broad coalition of interest groups, websites, and people around the world are joining together to fight back against government surveillance. We’re supporting the “Day We Fight Back” on WordPress.com and have created a banner that you can easily add to your WordPress.com blog to get involved, too.

The “Stop NSA Surveillance” banner shows support for this important cause and provides a link to a page of resources to help visitors to contact members of the US Congress to support much needed anti-surveillance legislation. For more information, please visit thedaywefightback.org.

How to add the banner to your site

Here’s how to add the banner to your site in three steps:

  1. In your WordPress.com dashboard, go to Settings  Protest NSA Surveillance.
  2. Click on the checkbox labelled Protest Enabled.
  3. Click on the Save Changes button for the change to take effect.

The banner will remain on…

Kung Fu Master Dustin Hogue

So in the wake of the embarrassing 102-77 loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers, the Iowa State Cyclones need to take a second to reflect and learn from their mistakes. One of which included a near brawl when Iowa State forward Dustin Hogue lifted his leg during a rebound and unleashed what looked to be a karate kick to the chest. During the same play West Virginia’s Eron Harris took a swing of his own. Either way the Cyclones need to (pardon the pun) rebound and come back strong to finish out the season. They have a very real chance to go deep in the NCAA tournament come March and that is when the games and hopefully lack of karate kicks will really matter.
