The Fishy Swine Flu

Posted in

Twitter, while addictive, is less a news source than a group of gossiping old ladies. Take for instance the outbreak of the Swine Flu, reading twitter updates while camping, I began to feel like I would be returning to a remake of The Stand. The crisis was blown far out of proportion for the current status. I feel bad for the hundred or so victims but it is not quite at the death in the streets level... yet.

I am Four years old, have no job and already am $160,000 in debt.

I was among 2000 folks who gathered along the shores of the Hudson river yesterday for the 2008 Tea Party. Apparently 2000 was a fairly small one, some of the shots of Michigan and Tennessee look like we could have snuck in en masse in the back and not be noticed.

England’s Net Nanny

England seems to be further and further along the curve on the path to totalitarianism.  From this side of the pond, it serves as a wonderful Panopticon to see where the erosion of privacy and civil rights in this country are headed.

What to Do With Old Spy Satellites

Amidst the turmoil and trouble last week, President Bush signed an appropriations bill which would allow military satellites to be turned on the US and the imagery shared with various state and federal agencies.

Currently this is being positioned as a tool to assist in disaster response and preparedness, but DHS and other federal agencies will have access to the data.

Trust us we're from the government, we're here to help you.

Slashdot linked to this article wired magazine article where the FBI delayed their own investigation in an attempt to bolster support for a Patriot act power to issue National Security Letters (NSL).

During an investigation into the 2005 London Bombings the FBI ordered a field agent to return documentation obtained via subpoena, so they could instead demand the documentation through an NSL.

Seeing the world through Google colored glasses

You are editor in chief for a major newspaper. Though you don't write articles your editorial policies would determine which articles were on the front page, and which were buried several pages back which would subtly influence what the common man thinks is important. The opinions of your writers would set the tone and sway the public mindset, and you determine which articles the public sees and which they do not. In short you could easily sway elections and push your agenda.
