EFF launches open source site to help you contact Congress, and to hold Congress accountable

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has long been known as a protector of the free Internet, but the organization can’t do it alone. One of the EFF’s greatest strengths is its ability to rally people behind its causes, which of course isn’t terribly difficult since the group’s causes always benefit Internet users.

With the EFF’s latest project, the organization has created a new open source tool that makes it easier than ever for Americans to contact their Congressmen and women and make their voices heard. And just as important, the tool will also allow the EFF to hold members of Congress accountable. More →

You now finally can, and should, beat the crap out of a Donald Trump pinata

You now finally can, and should, beat the crap out of a Donald Trump pinata

We don’t condone violence, but the thought of beating presidential hopeful and all-around awful person Donald Trump with a stick isn’t terribly unappealing. No, you should not find the real Donald Trump and beat him with a stick. If you happen to find yourself near Alicia Lopez Fernandez De Lara’s shop in Mexico City, Mexico, however, we highly recommend picking up one of De Lara’s Donald Trump pinatas and unloading some of that pent-up rage.
