Arriana Huffington / Re: Rick Perry Seeks Obamacare Funding For Texans
« on: September 16, 2013, 07:06:55 AM »
Perry has been a strident Obamacare critic from the beginning, but his spokesman explained that the funding pitch is about aiding people with disabilities, independent of a health insurance mandate.

Just another big lie. Are people with disabilities independent of the insurance mandate?

The military's top brass in Canberra runs a deliberate policy of censorship based on spurious "operational security" grounds, according to a former commander in Afghanistan.

Colonel Stuart Yeaman, who was the Commanding Officer of Reconstruction Task Force number four in Oruzgan province, said the policy meant that the real story of the achievements of Australian troops in Australia's longest ever war might never be told.

"There is a deliberate policy from the top down to prevent information getting out for operational security reasons," Colonel Yeaman said.

"But mostly there is no operational security issue and therefore no reason why people back at home can't know it."

If successful, it will take some of the weight off numerous large and small companies that sought insurance coverage for potential worker injuries by uniting under group trusts that shared liabilities jointly and severally.

Which insurance and what small companies are these?

After over two years of unrest, Syria’s civil war has seemingly reached its climax.

On the heels of a reported chemical weapons attack that left 100 civilians dead, both the U.S. and British governments are considering an attack on the embattled nation whose government has vowed to defend itself from any aggression.

Similar to Egypt’s revolution and the Arab Spring before it, social media has played an important role in Syria’s civil war.

Both pro- and anti-government propaganda are rife on websites like YouTube.

In the mid-70s, when de-Nixonification was a national priority, a not yet spineless Congress made it possible for Americans to access the files that their government kept on their activities.  Over the years, Administrations intent on keeping their foul deeds secret did their best to water down that right.  But it has never been rescinded, and is therefore still in effect.

All you have to do, if you think you might have been spied on or otherwise investigated, is request your file — and wait.  Then, if you are lucky, in the fullness of time, you will be sent some heavily redacted version of what the authorities have on you.

Huffington Post Union of Bloggers (HPUB) / The Neocon March on Damascus
« on: August 29, 2013, 05:48:46 PM »
Here we go again. As Americans prepare to march on Washington, Washington is preparing to march on Damascus. As part of the buildup to war, a chorus of liberal hawks and neoconservatives has issued a new manifesto in—where else?—the Weekly Standard calling upon President Obama to engage in regime change in Syria. Just as they demanded military action to topple Saddam Hussein, so they now are insisting upon the removal of Bashar al-Assad.

Yet if anything might be calculated to give Obama pause before he embarks upon a bombing campaign, it should be this truculent letter, whose signatories include Fouad Ajami, Elliott Abrams, Paul Berman, Eliot A. Cohen, Robert Kagan, William Kristol, Bernard-Henri Levy, Tim Palwenty, James Traub, Eric Edelman, Karl Rove, Dan Senor, Martin Peretz and Leon Wieseltier. (At Politico, Dylan Byers astutely notes that the presence of Wieseltier and Peretz should come as no surprise because, "Wieseltier et al. aren't emissaries from the 'new' New Republic, they're stalwarts of the Old Republic. Wieseltier served on the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq and Peretz led the magazine's call for military intervention there (he still thinks it was a good idea)." So there you go. The very same crew, by and large, that declared that Iraq could be transformed into a blossoming democracy in 2003. Now it wants to duplicate its roaring success.


Freedom of the Press Doesn’t Apply to Anonymous Commenting Over at the Huffington Post.
Agree or disagree??

As the New York Times tried to wrestle back control of its website, AOL Inc. and Twitter Inc. quickly locked down parts of their own slate of domain addresses. But many other major websites continued to maintain limited security Wednesday morning.

The Syrian Electronic Army hacking group claimed responsibility for a hack Tuesday that sent some visitors of to a hacker-controlled website. The hackers had secured the log-in information for a U.S. sales partner of domain name registrar Melbourne IT and then used the information to breach the company’s administrative interface. Once inside, they were able to change two strings of text that caused those trying to access the New York Times website to be redirected elsewhere.

The Supreme Administrative Court in Finland ruled today that Finnish police didn't break the law when a famous anti-censorship website was added to its censorship list.
Back in 2006 Finland implemented a censorship legislation that targeted websites distributing child pornography. Legislation handed the National Bureau of Investigation rights to add child porn sites to its secret block list which national ISPs would then implement and enforce.

As the process of blocking the sites is done in secret and the list of blocked sites has never been officially made public, an individual, Matti Nikki, decided to create a site called (translates as child porn dot info) criticizing the secretive process and the fact that there's no way to make an official complaint about one's site being listed on such block list. He also hosted on his site a list of sites known to be on the list, but didn't contain any child porn material whatsoever.

Individual fired by a major U.S. bank for hacking into customer info without authotization. Could not find employment in private sector for over 2 years. Guess where he works now? High security position for the NSA. Nuff said. All true!

Is anonymity really the problem with online comments? I don’t think so, and there’s at least some evidence that supports my argument—but more than that, anonymity has real value, and giving it up has serious consequences.

Do we need a “grown-up Internet”?

The internet is already "grown-up." Anonymity was part of what made it grow. I am totally in support of your arguments.
