Talk about weird.
A surreal anti-trans bill has progressed in Washington state - which could enforce 'genital-checking' for public bathrooms.

This petition can go to Congress with your signature to save Internet Radio.
SAVENETRADIO 3.0 Just before the holiday break 2015 the CRB (Copyright Royalty Board) handed down the decision on new royalty rates for all webcasters. Prior to this decision there was a special CONGRESSIONAL LAW titled the "Small Webcasters Agreement of 2009" or SWA which made these insanely expensive royatly fees affordable and kept innovative programmers and new emerging artists on the air.
