another week closer to the eschaton…

I Talked With an Algerian Last Night About NDAA, He Said Expect People to Start Disappearing:o

Tea Party to America: Merry Christmas, Fuck You – In a few days, House Republicans will be off counting their own tax cuts (about 50% of House Republicans are millionaires), vacationing on their yachts, and betting each other whose jet can make it to St. Bart’s faster – while 160 million Americans try to come up with an extra $1500 to cover their tab.

We Killed Your Daughter; You’re Under Arrest – an act of vehicular homicide — one involving “gross negligence,” and therefore a felony… committed by a police officer clown, who, because of the fact that he is a police officer, is not going to be charged with anything. if my 4,000 pound car ran over some one it would kill them, but if i was one of the aforementioned above, their 4,000 pound car probably would hurt anyone… right?

Time to end the war on drugs – Sir Richard Branson says “Decriminalization does not result in increased drug use.”… too bad nobody’s listening, especially in the united states. :| quite the opposite, actually: Kafka Surrenders – if the police illegally stop you, detain you, and beat you, you aren’t permitted to resist. just roll over and take it. submit. also, Do Private Military Contractors Have Impunity to Torture? – “this question has not yet been settled in the courts of the United States.” that’s a good thing to know… :|

President Obama’s Puzzling Silence on Marijuana Policy – if he were to say “fuck it, let’s legalise pot” he would gain back all of the support that he’s lost over the past few years, but the likelyhood that he’s actually going to do it is slim to none… :| Jurors Need to Know That They Can Say No – jury nullification is the first step, but before you can get on a jury, you have to either lie (a felony) and say that you won’t support jury nullification, or you have to lie (a felony) and say that you’ve never heard of it, because if you state that you are a supporter of jury nullification, they won’t let you serve on a jury.

RIAA and Homeland Security Caught Downloading Torrents – more than 900 unique IP-addresses at the Government organization through which copyrighted files were downloaded… will they answer for their piracy? RIAA’s Response To Infringement Via Its IP Address Is To Say Someone Else Did It – so the excuse that’s not good enough when everyone else uses it, is good enough when it comes to the RIAA… hmmmm… can you say “double standard”? i knew you could…

at the same time, Internet circumvents anti-piracy bill before it even passes – moral: never tell a geek that he can’t have something.

TSA Confiscates Woman’s Frosted Cupcake – TSA clowns take woman’s christmas treats because they say they are a threat to national security…?
