Obama wants to know: Why open source?

Obama wants to know: Why open source?

President Barack Obama is a smart guy. Where others zig, he zags. It's perhaps not surprising, then, that he's been asking around about the benefits of open source, according to Sun Chairman Scott McNealy, who has been asked by President Obama to author a white paper on the benefits the U.S. government can derive from open source. McNealy, [...]

Ron Paul Responds to Obama’s Inaugural Address

Ron Paul was asked to respond to a particular passage in President Obama’s inaugural address, as it relates to our constitutional tradition, in which he states that “what the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them - that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question [...]

The front page of the site features a sensational story titled “Barack Obama has refused to be a president”. Clicking the link will download the malware and make the target’s machine part of the botnet. They’re using fast-flux to [...]

The US Air Force’s rules of engagement… for blogging

Above is the United States Air Force's blog assessment chart, developed by its Emerging Technologies Division. The “rules of engagement” are quite good. You might find them to be useful for your own blogs, whether personal or corporate. (more…)

Why are gun sales soaring?

Why are gun sales soaring?

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A [...]

Ron Paul Supporters Stage Internet Coup

Ron Paul Supporters Stage Internet Coup

Say what you want about Ron Paul and his legion of tech-savvy supporters, but they do make the Republican party a whole lot more interesting to watch. Case in point? As Politico's Ben Stein reports, Ron Paul supporters have recently flocked to a Digg-like webstie set up by the RNC and flooded it with questions for the debate between candidates for [...]

Why Am I Not Surprised That This is a Government Website?

Why Am I Not Surprised That This is a Government Website?

I guess the processors that do your benefits calculations have to go home to spend time with their families and sleep some time. Ohh, and if you are retiring after 2018, the answer is 0. That should be easy enough to program.

Musicians against music torture

Musicians against music torture

Musicians and human rights group Reprieve launched a "silent protest" against the use of music for torture and interrogation. For example, the playlists at places like Guantanamo Bay and other US military prisons/bases has included such hot platters as Deicide's "Fuck Your God" and the theme song from Barney The Purple Dinosaur. Musicians like [...]

The Federal Reserve Abolition Act

The Federal Reserve Abolition Act

Ron Paul introduced HR 2755: Federal Reserve Abolition Act. There were no co-sponsors, no further action was taken, and the legislation was referred to the House Committee on Financial Services and effectively pigeonholed and ignored. It’s a bold and needed measure to “abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the [...]

Time to Reboot America

Time to Reboot America

Landing at Kennedy Airport from Hong Kong was, as I’ve argued before, like going from the Jetsons to the Flintstones. I think a lot of our problems center around the fact that we worship our leaders and look to them for solutions just like the author did at the end. Hong Kong is full of people who find their own way and typically do so [...]

Before you put any money in those little red kettles, make sure you aren’t opposed to the positions of The Salvation Army

Before you put any money in those little red kettles, make sure you aren’t opposed to the positions of The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has a reputation of helping out the needy and until today I had no idea they were so... stringent. I have been putting coins in those buckets since I was very little but I think those days are done. My friend's protestant church seems to live closer to christian ideals and makes the disparity between organizations like The [...]

The guy who set up alternate email for White House dies in plane crash

The guy who set up alternate email for White House dies in plane crash

Mike Connell set-up the alternate email and communications system for the White House. He was responsible for creating the system that hosted the infamous GWB43.com accounts that Karl Rove and others used. When asked by Congress to provide these emails, the White House said that they were destroyed. But in reality, what Connell is alleged to have [...]

McCain Campaign Sells Info-Loaded Blackberry to Reporter

McCain Campaign Sells Info-Loaded Blackberry to Reporter

ARLINGTON, Va. - Private information at bargain prices.  It was a high-tech flub at the McCain-Palin campaign headquarters in Arlington when Fox 5’s Investigative Reporter Tisha Thompson bought a Blackberry device containing confidential campaign information. It started with a snippet we read on page A23 in Thursday’s Washington Post.  [...]

Ron Paul’s Passionate Speech on the Auto Bailout

A true hero in a sinking ship. It is so sad that this once mighty republic is going out with a whimper. I'd like to think we can turn it around and I'll go down in a rain of fire defending it, but it doesn't look real good. He brings up some interesting points, but the one I found downright scary is the nationalization of industries, because it [...]

Where money comes from: fractional reserve and debts

In this 47-minute video, Paul Grignon lays out the workings of the fractional reserve system, explaining how banks are able to create money and then collect interest on it. He's highly critical of the system (which I have a hard time getting my head around), and he makes a good case for the idea that the deck is stacked against everyone except [...]

Verizon fires workers over Obama cell phone records breach

Verizon fires workers over Obama cell phone records breach

Verizon Wireless has fired employees connected to a breach of records from a cell phone used by President-elect Barack Obama this year, a Verizon source said Friday. The source would not say how many people were terminated but said "we now consider this matter closed." Verizon reported the breach Thursday, and Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs [...]

Barack Obama plans $1 trillion tax hike

Barack Obama plans $1 trillion tax hike

Remember the new math? Well, that is now the old math. The new, new math was created by U.S. Sen. Barack Obama and can be found in his economic plan, which I venture to bet 99.9 percent of Americans voting for him have never even read. That explains why we get the politicians we get ... and deserve. The problem with Americans not even [...]

You don’t really own the stocks and bonds you think you own

You don’t really own the stocks and bonds you think you own

All the stocks and bonds you think you own are actually owned by a company you've probably never heard of, a company owned by the same people who own the US Federal Reserve. Originally paper stocks certificates were issued as evidence of ownership by companies to investors purchasing shares. But as trading volume exploded in the late 60's this [...]
