Drawing the Line in Wisconsin


Progressive Majority

Dear Friend,

Progressive Majority is drawing the line on redistricting.

For too long, conservatives have controlled the states. They've drawn district lines in their favor, marginalized Democratic voters and affected the outcome of elections long before Election Day.

They've invested in winning state legislative seats to control redistricting and control elections. After the 2000 Census, they redrew districts in Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania - making them harder for Democrats to win and making them battleground states in every national and statewide election since.

Now, the far right has its sights on the 2010 Census and the next round of redistricting - but this time it won't be so easy for them to carve up districts for their own gain.

Fred Clark
Kristen Dexter
Progressive Majority has a winning strategy to ensure the lines are drawn fairly and voters - not right-wing activists - have the say in who wins elections.

Progressive Majority's number-one goal this year is to take control of the Wisconsin Legislature, a key state in the redistricting battle. In Wisconsin, the governor and Legislature are solely in charge of redistricting.

Lou Ann Weix
Progressive Majority made history in 2006 when we took over the Wisconsin Senate. This year, we're just three seats away from taking over the Wisconsin Assembly.

Fred Clark
Penny Bernard Schaber
With your help, we can elect strong progressive candidates to the Wisconsin Assembly, such as Fred Clark, Kristen Dexter, Penny Bernard Schaber and Lou Ann Weix. These leaders will deliver progressive legislation and fair redistricting for Wisconsin and will help keep Democrats in control nationally.

When Progressive Majority recruits, trains and elects progressives, we protect progressive values across the nation. Please click here to make a secure donation to help Fred, Kristen, Penny, Lou Ann and all our progressive candidates in Wisconsin take back their state and our nation.

It's time for progressives to take charge and take back America!

Congress To Make eBay A Rat
Thursday, September 25, 2008

Taken together, three bills in Congress would require online marketplaces and auction sites to secretly police affiliates suspected of selling stolen goods. In addition to requiring extensive record keeping on sellers using the site and turning over that information to authorities upon request, the legislation prohibits resale sites—like eBay or craigslist—from informing suspected sellers they are being investigated.

Editor's Note: Sometimes legislators get carried away with good intentions and while doing so overstep their bounds. Making organized retail crime a federal offense and working to stop it is good, but making online marketplaces into secret police? The Congressional march proceeds with noticeably higher steps. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

None of the bills, two in the House of Representatives and one in the Senate, is expected to come to a vote before the Congressional recess—they've got bigger fish to fry in Bailout Brand oil at the moment—but the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security held a hearing on the subject recently.

The purpose of the legislation is to target organized retail crime, or bands of shoplifters and hustlers hocking ill-gotten goods online, where the National Retail Federation, which has come out aggressively in favor of the legislation, says thieves can sell goods at 70 percent value. Street corners typically only bring 30 percent of the retail value.

The problem was highlighted recently when a New York vendor was busted selling Victoria Secret brassieres on eBay for $25 a pop. They typically sold for between $40 and $80. If you're wondering why Homeland Security is being dragged in to this, it's likely because of alleged past connections between organized retail crime syndicates traced to Hezbollah and Hamas.

Naturally, the Internet is to blame.

Though, NetChoice's Steve DelBianco colorfully compared this logic to blaming the back seats of cars for teenage sex, the NRF's vice president for loss prevention, Joseph LaRocca, has elevated the problem to the level of addiction to Class A narcotics. At the aforementioned hearing, LaRocca said:

"The Internet seems to be contributing to the creation of a brand new type of retail thief – people who have never stolen before but are lured in by the convenience and anonymity of the Internet. Thieves often tell the same disturbing story: they begin legitimately selling product on eBay and then become hooked by its addictive qualities, the anonymity it provides and the ease with which they gain exposure to millions of customers. When they run out of legitimate merchandise, they begin to steal intermittently, many times for the first time in their life, so they can continue selling online. The thefts then begin to spiral out of control and before they know it they quit their jobs, are recruiting accomplices and are crossing states lines to steal, all so they can support and perpetuate their online selling habit."

Old Domains

Our featured post today comes from tombstoneweb. He came across an old domain registration that was his business name and his email address, but he wasn't the one who registered the domain. What tombstoneweb wants to know is if there is a way to lookup previous registration information on expired domains to see who would have done this. Think you can help tombstoneweb out? Tell us your thoughts at WebProWorld!

How can I find out who owned a domain?
I was searching for domain names using the DomainTools domain finder and came across a domain that has been registered, but no longer is. The thing is that the domain name has my name and my business name in it. So, now I am curious to see who it was that registered that domain name.

Does anyone here know how to find out this information?

Thanks in advance!
