Censored today in theMail…
|| 2/15/2007 || 6:05 am || Comments Off on Censored today in theMail… || ||

On Sunday I e-mailed Gary Imhoff who moderates the bi-weekly discussion list called theMail. This is the second time I have posted to the theMail, with the first being an e-flyer for “North South East Westminster,” and to be honest I am quite disappointed in the slight censorship Gary employed in my original entry. Specifically, he opted to not include what I feel to be the best piece of media: the Taxation Without Representation Google Map!

Here is what I sent to theMail:

The New DC Flag (if HR 328 passes) and other fractional media
Nikolas R. Schiller, DC [at] NikolasSchiller [dot] com
Co-Chair, DC Statehood Green Party

Fellow friends & enemies of fractional representation,

Last Thursday I received a phone call from the executive director of an organization that is promoting fractional democracy on behalf the disenfranchised residents of Washington, DC. I was kindly asked to refrain from using Photoshop to alter copyrighted images, even when done as a parody (see below). However, when an injustice is currently being promoted in the name of democracy, I cannot in good conscience be silent, or even 1/3 silent.

So to complete my fractional trilogy, I have redesigned the DC flag to represent the 1/3 representation DC residents will get with the passage of the unconstitutional DC Fair and Equal Voting Rights Act of 2007 (hr 328). I also created an animated version to accentuate the stupidity of claiming 1/3 representation as progress.

The flag is based on this proposed design:

Interactive Google Map:

– This Google Map Mashup randomly plots 51 DC Flags around the U.S. Capitol and when clicked reveal 51 different messages about Washington, DC.

Don’t forget, if you have the time, take one-third of a day off work on Thursday and go to Capitol Hill and tell Congress what it’s like to be forced to take the backseat on the bus of democracy.

After the flap is what was actually distributed:

He also removed my elected title of Co-Chair of the party….

The New DC Flag and Other Fractional Media

Fellow friends and enemies of fractional representation, last Thursday I
received a phone call from the executive director of an organization
that is promoting fractional democracy on behalf of the disenfranchised
residents of Washington, DC. I was kindly asked to refrain from using
Photoshop to alter copyrighted images, even when done as a parody.
However, when an injustice is currently being promoted in the name of
democracy, I cannot in good conscience be silent, or even one-third silent.

So to complete my fractional trilogy, I have redesigned the DC flag to
represent the one-third representation DC residents will get with the
passage of the unconstitutional DC Fair and Equal Voting Rights Act of
2007 (HR 328). I also created an animated version to accentuate the
stupidity of claiming one-third representation as progress. The flag is
based on this proposed design:
http://www.dcwatch.com/issues/flagproposed.gif. The new DC Flag (if HR
328 passes):

Fractionally related (if HR 328 passes):

one-thirds related:

both and ask yourself, “Who is still getting screwed?”

Don’t forget, if you have the time, take one-third of a day off work on
Thursday and go to Capitol Hill and tell Congress what it’s like to be
forced to take the back seat on the bus of democracy.

Oh well. Time to go to Capitol Hill…..
