End Of WatchAn empty rail platform holds the light produced from only a few inadequate lamps as a man in khaki fatigues purchases his ticket from the counter out front, awaiting his arrival at one of the benches to wait for the next train to his determined destination.End Of Watch by KahunaSniper
The man passes the lone platform master some paper cash and a small white note; neither the elder nor the traveler in khaki exchange a word as all the information is certified and the ticket is printed. The graying platform master simply tips his hat to the man as he turns away, but not before noticing the old platform master was wearing a military service ribbon on his pristine jet-black beret.
The man walks over and sets his only piece of luggage down near the bench meant for all people whose journey brings them to this point. Instead of sitting, like all of his predecessors before him, the man in khaki walks over to the payphone sitting on the wall of the rail platform, taking up the receiver and paid out for the call in pocket c

How to fight CISPAGood morning everyone, I was searching for CISPA Updates today and I discovered a four step plan to help fight CISPA. The more American people we can inform about this Draconian bill the higher chance we can kill CISPA in the Senate and the closer we get into becoming the TRUE Land of the Free again. So read this very carefully and accomplish this step by step task and we can be able to derail CISPA dead in its tracks. Here are the four steps:How to fight CISPA by OhgunO152
1. Become as knowledgeable as possible. You can't fight what you don't understand. The EFF has compiled a great summary of prominent "voices of opposition against CISPA" you can browse through here: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/04/voices-against-cispa
2. Sign the most popular of the anti-CISPA petitions. This one has 779,082 signatures so far; their goal is 1 million signatures, and it's a goal I believe we can hit. A few cowards have told me they'd sign it, but they don't want to wind up on "a list." Hey, this is America -- we put our name
