Customs Officials Arrest 14 Year Pirate

I didn’t grow up in a ‘lock up pirates and throw away the key’ environment yet i’m still disturbed and concerned at how copyright enforcement is heading. Going to war against today’s potential customers seems foolish. Punishing and polarizing children - tomorrow’s customers - at the behest of big-business, is in a completely different league.

8 hacks to make Firefox ridiculously fast

Firefox has been outperforming IE in every department for years, and version 3 is speedier than ever.

But tweak the right settings and you could make it faster still, more than doubling your speed in some situations, all for about five minutes work and for the cost of precisely nothing at all. Here's what you need to do.

Turkey scared to admit Armenian genocide, says historian.

Turkey risks a collapse of its secular political system akin to that of the Soviet Union if it bows to international pressure to recognise the 1915-22 Armenian genocide, the head of Armenia's state memorial to the event has told the Guardian.

Hayk Demoyan said Ankara could not acknowledge the systematic killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman troops during the first world war because it would lead to a wholesale re-writing of history and undermine the ideological basis of the Turkish state.

Video: The Marriott Hotel Bombing: A "Horse Head" in the bed?

21 September 2008

After weeks of complaining of US intervention in Pakistan the President Asif Ali Zardari in his speech to Parliament announces,"We will not allow Foreign forces to violate Pakistan's territorial integrity in the name of fighting Terrorism", hours later a MASSIVE bomb ripped apart the Marriott Hotel killing scores of people.

The USA had threatened the Previous President Musharraf with "Being bombed back to the stone age", unless he co-operated with the USA in the War on Terror. Watch the video ALL the statements are there. Is this a "HORSE HEAD" in the bed for Pakistan?

Grasping at Straws . by Mike Whitney

On Friday morning, Senator Christopher Dodd, the head of the Senate Banking Committee, was interviewed on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Dodd revealed that just hours earlier at an emergency meeting convened by Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, lawmakers were told that “We’re literally maybe days away from a complete meltdown of our financial system.” Dodd added somberly, that in his three decades of serving in public office, he had “never heard language like this.”

Under Proposed Bailout, Feds Could Speculate, Nationalize Any Company or Industry, Or Do Anything Else They Want Using Taxpayer Money

So Paulson, in consultation with Bernanke, could “deem it necessary” to “stabilize” the financial markets by buying boat loads of gold. Or by cornering the market in uranium or platinum.

Or they could decide that they needed to buy Microsoft and Google.

Just like Bush and Cheney have gotten us into oil wars and wars to protect Israel under the guise of being necessary to protect our national defense, Paulson and Bernanke could do anything they want by pretending it is for the stability of the financial markets, especially since no one could challenge their actions in court.

Naomi Klein: Financial crisis part of Bush 'shock doctrine'

The bailout of Wall Street’s largest players by the federal government is another example of the Bush administration pursuing a corporate agenda at the expense of average Americans, a prominent author argued on Friday.

Pakistan leaders' 'narrow escape'

Pakistan's top leaders were to have been in the Islamabad Marriott hotel when it was bombed - but changed venue at the last minute, officials say.

Interior ministry head Rehman Malik said the president, prime minister and military chiefs should have been there.

He told journalists it would have been "a great catastrophe", but did not say why the dinner plans were changed.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be soldiers.

What do you do with a drunken soldier?

Two Canadian soldiers were convicted and fined in Cyprus last March for hitting on a man's wife and then hitting the man when he objected. Allegedly, there was also some spitting. Gross.

Typical of the military, Canadian Forces spokeswoman Lieut. Isabelle Riche refused to give details or name names when the story broke, but was quite willing to misrepresent the truth as to the extent of this sort of out-of-control behaviour in Cyprus. From the National Post:

Mushroom Cloud over Wall Street

These are dark times. While you were sleeping the cockroaches were busy about their work, rummaging through the US Constitution, and putting the finishing touches on a scheme to assert absolute power over the nation's financial markets and the country's economic future. Industry representative Henry Paulson has submitted legislation to congress that will finally end the pretense that Bush controls anything more than reading the lines from a 4' by 6' teleprompter situated just inches from his lifeless pupils. Paulson is in charge now, and the coronation is set for sometime early next week.

FLASHBACK: The Subprime Trump Card: Standing up to the Banks

How about swarming the courts? New case law indicates that a majority of the 750,000 homeowners expected to lose their homes this year could have a valid defense to foreclosure. As much as $2 trillion in real estate may be vulnerable to this defense, providing a very big stick for a lobby of motivated debtors. Mobilizing that group, in turn, could light a fire under the investors in mortgage-backed securities -- the pension funds, money market funds and insurance companies holding these "orphan" mortgages.

[Video] McCain: I’m glad I deregulated Wall Street.

In the wake of last week’s financial meltdown, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been calling for more regulation and criticizing lax oversight of Wall Street, despite the fact that he and former senator Phil Gramm passed much of the deregulatory reforms that led to the current crisis. Interviewed on CBS today, however, McCain said he does not “regret” championing the deregulation of Wall Street:

Q: In 1999, you were one of the senators who helped pass deregulation of Wall Street. Do you regret that now?

McCAIN: No. I think the deregulation was probably helpful to the growth of our economy.

Bailout Costs could have rebuilt the country's infastructure

According to, the total cost of all the Wall Street bailouts is now being estimated at $1.8 trillion! I am officialy both shocked and awed by this staggering number!

Amazingly, that is just about the exact amount that is needed to rebuild the country's infrastructure! What a coincidence!

The unknown 20 trillion dollar company

It is a private company, owned by the same people (major U.S. banks) who own the Federal Reserve Bank. And if they all stick to their job, and just keep the money and your stocks flowing smoothly, I'm sure that is all well and good. But if somebody at some point should decide otherwise, and there's a national U.S. emergency and/or the U.S. government becomes unable to pay its debts, well, they might just not give you your stocks back. Because legally they own them. Something to think about.

The Founders created a constitutional republic, not a
democracy. They knew that it was way too easy for the majority
in a pure democracy to violate the natural rights of the
individual. As Jefferson stated, “A democracy is nothing
more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people
may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Their
intention was to do everything possible to put into place a
form of government that would keep indigenous power from
being usurped by surrogate power. The only kind of government
entity that can maintain indigenous power is one that

20 Years of Political Fraud

“The League of Women Voters is withdrawing sponsorship of the presidential debates … because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates’ organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and answers to tough questions. The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.” - LWV Statement 1988

Putin's Checkmate in Georgia

"It is hard not to conclude that Russian prime minister goaded the rash Saakashvili into invading South Ossetia by encouraging Abkhazian and South Ossetian irregulars to attack Georgian outposts and villages on the peripheries of the two enclaves. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reportedly told Saakashvili not to respond to such provocations when she met with him in July. Apparently her advice fell on deaf ears. Far more enticing, it seems, was her promise of strong U.S. backing for Georgia's rapid entry into NATO.

Welcome to the final stages of the coup...

Let me first point you to the Bush administration's so-called Wall Street bailout bill, here, so that you can see for yourself that this treachery is being conducted in the light of day. Fascism is finally and formally out of the right-wing closet even if the F word is not yet openly being used (although it should be, and often).
