An Excellent Post by Bruce Schneier on Government Accountability
http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2013/08/restoring_trust.html

Some excerpts:

Accountability means that those who break the law, lie to Congress or deceive the American people are held accountable. The NSA has gone rogue, and while it's probably not possible to prosecute people for what they did under the enormous veil of secrecy it currently enjoys, we need to make it clear that this behavior will not be tolerated in the future. Accountability also means voting, which means voters need to know what our leaders are doing in our name.


Since the Snowden documents became public, I have been receiving e-mails from people seeking advice on whom to trust. As a security and privacy expert, I'm expected to know which companies protect their users' privacy and which encryption programs the NSA can't break. The truth is, I have no idea. No one outside the classified government world does. I tell people that they have no choice but to decide whom they trust and to then trust them as a matter of faith. It's a lousy answer, but until our government starts down the path of regaining our trust, it's the only thing we can do.

United States have been living on a borrowed dime for far too long, and debts must be payed. Often not only with money.

The (supposedly liberal) mainstream media is barely doing jack squat to cover this, so it's up to us to spread the word.  BOOST THE SIGNAL, PEOPLE.

Fake Candidates
You know, I am amused by this story: http://www.truth-out.org/gop-plan-run-fake-democratic-candidates/1307541498 because the Democrat Party has been running fake Democratic candidates for years

Avaaz.org report
I've been enjoying following the Avaaz reports. Exciting things going on around the world. While Avaaz may be overstating its own role, it's still a fun read:

And the Obama admin keep covering up the Duhbya garbage
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/20/us/politics/20data.html?_r=1

We can't expect the Obama administration to prosecute the Bush criminals when they are so busy going after the scum who destroyed the economy. Oh, wait, they're aren't going after them either.

Not one single prosecution of either

Interesting article on the end of the American century
and in only 70 years :-)

"More alike than not, Democrats and Republicans serve the narrow interests of the “government affairs representatives” who infest Washington’s K Street lobbying firms."

Gotta love modern folk heroes
David Rovic has a song for Bradley Manning, one of the heroes of the Wikileaks drama

Obama and the Whales
Looked to have his people both expand whaling and attack the Sea Shepherds:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/01/04/3105737.htm

Does anyone actually believe Obama is any kind of an environmentalist? He and his administration tried to expand offshore drilling, lied blatantly about the BP spill, massively extended funding of nukes and coal at the expense of alternatives, and installed weak auto emission regs instead of the ones favored by people who like to breathe.

Which name fits best?
Rollover Obama

Just thinking of the song "Razzle Dazzle" from Chicago and feeling sorry for every Progressive tricked into voting for Obama

Chile leading the way on Net Neutrality
Amazing how impossible it seems that the US will do this:

"No [ISP] can block, interfere with, discriminate, hinder, nor restrict the right of any Internet user of using, send, receive or offer any content, application, or legitimate service through the Internet, as well as any activity or legitimate use conducted through the Internet."
