Big Turd May Prove To Be From Recent Godzilla Rampage

Forensic analysis conducted on the stadium-sized turd discovered filling Center Park in the wake of Godzilla's recent rampage through downtown Metropolis has demonstrated, nearly conclusively, that the gigantic lizard may well indeed have been the culprit. Godzilla himself has said repeatedly that he does not defecate, and cites local stray dogs as possible sources. While it is true that a small percentage of the extensive and costly labwork, funded by the Metropolitan Department of Parks and Recreation, remains inconclusive, it appears that enough evidence has been gathered to cast doubt on the lizard's claims.

The 2010 DHS Surveillance Technology Wish list (or, What To Watch Out For...)

The 2010 DHS Surveillance Technology Wishlist
(or, What to Watch Out For)

"What I Want To Know Is..." – issue #1

American citizen: if you think the danger is only relevant to those with "something to hide," you had better think again. Please.(Anonymous)

The makers of our constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness... They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone – the most comprehensive of the rights and the right most valued by civilized men. (Justice Louis D. Brandeis)

Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen... (Zbigniew Brezhinsky)

I hope you find this helpful, gentle Reader. I could have, you understand, done something more immediately useful instead, like looking for a place to move to – a land like the America of my youth - an America I only thought I lived in, an America that may have never existed.

Music That Kicks Political Ass: "the fletcher memorial home"

one hears, very far off in the distance, a man shouting, his voice nearly drowned out by the roaring of wind: "Hey! Get your filthy hands off my desert!" and then, a voice, distinct, quite loud in your ear, as if someone standing next to you merely had to lean slightly to ask: "What'd he say?" – and then the unmistakeable sound of a nuclear explosion uncomfortably, impossibly close to ground zero.

Music That Kicks Political Ass: Stromkern "Stand Up"

song often here

listen/watch here (alternate link)

Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna start it off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let 'em know and we'll turn up the track -
So c’mon.

This is a song dedicated to the lost
Triggered by the light and devoured by the holocaust
Well you prayed for daylight and it never came
So you better start praying again
Well it’s not a psychosis and it’s not a relief
And it’s nothing that’s certain and it’s not a belief
It’s a just a sad fact. Maintain the illusion.
You want a solution
We want a revolution

Well I’ll follow; we’ll synchronize
So many confined at one place and at one time
And there’s so much at hand that I don’t understand
And circumstances demand that we all better take a stand
Giving in once, well you’re giving in twice
Giving in three times; like you’re giving them light
But they can’t keep secrets ‘cause they know they’re wrong
And they can’t keep us down ‘cause we’re too damn strong

Chorus:
Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna to start if off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let 'em know and we'll turn up the tracks.
So c’mon.

Well an enemy yours is an enemy mine
And I’m just not sure if I’m wasting your time
If I could see the inertia I would give it a try
But I gotta project or I gotta deny
Nothing is wrong here, but something ain’t right
I don’t feel this - I’m not seeing this
Something ain’t happening - plus I got a feeling
Don’t make a sound - keep your eyes on the ceiling

It’s automatic; I know we used to have it
And I wanted to let it go; I wish it would make it so
Nothing’s gonna save me when the chips are down
Nothing’s gonna save you if you don’t act now
But the current event is like a curdling sound
The event hypothetical is better than now
The action on the trigger’s just to stay in your mind
Any action or reaction is just a matter of time

Now the people on the left let me see your faith
I want to start it off slow then we’ll pick up the pace
And now the people on the right ain’t no time to waste
Been a long time coming gonna hit the ground running
Now the people in the crowd let me see those hands
‘Cause it’s so far gone I’m not surprised no one understands
What! Turn it up can you hear me in the back
Fly now so we testify so we can never die
Fly now so we testify so we can never die
So we fly

So we all pretend we’re oblivious
Perfectly serious
Tell me that you needed this
Never know what you’re gonna find
Never know what you might have left undefined
But I can tell you what it won’t be
Another web of confusions
Of lies and illusions
You can’t imagine the half of them
Petrified
Genocide
Masterminds
Worlds that they’ve undermined
It’s a place it’s a time it’s a lifeline
It’s a chance to atone for a lifetime
Reach your hands to the sky when you testify
Put ‘em up keep ‘em up until you realize
Killing them once is like killing them twice
Killing with something that’s a killing device
It’s killing them slowly then it’s killing them nice
If it’s killing your act
I want a reich

Chorus:
Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna to start if off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let them know when we turn the tracks.
So c’mon

Now the people on the left let me HEAR your faith
I want to start of slow then we’ll pick up the pace
Now the people on the right ain’t no time to waste,
been a long time coming but you’ll hit the ground runnin’
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands,
Cause it so far gone and that’s a price no one understands
What! Turn it up. Can you hear me in the back?
Right now is when we testify so we can never die.
Right now is when we testify so we can never die
So fine

Right now is when we testify so we can never die

for reasons of democratic legitimacy?!?

“We can’t keep doing this,” Bernanke told Paulson. “Both because we at the Fed don’t have the necessary resources and for reasons of democratic legitimacy, it’s important that the Congress come in and take control of the situation.”

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo! (poem)

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo!

Like (at our best) hackers, our wings far from untested,
effective per accindens, though improbably guessed at;
more impossibly intended, (in practice) depending, per...haps
on our ablity to sense it - if - it's initially mapped.
no: philosophies without hammers, no, nor dreams lacking anvils,
status threatening, can strike at the hearts of immortals:
haven't they stayed enough staid enough stated, and - quo -
alterii vadis, warranto, quorum, quid pro

reason enough (should reason persever) to know & to will & to dare demand never
ever be told odds that one changes if clever.
