another week closer to the eschaton…

America is a Constitutional Republic… NOT a Democracy – actually, i’ve known this for a long time, but it’s still a shock to me that other people might not know it.

BP Settlement Avoids Day in Court with People Hurt by Spill and BP settles while Macondo seeps – oh no, the problem is all cleared up, there’s no need to look, because it’s not really there… don’t worry… 😡

Self-Interest Spurs Society’s ‘Elite’ To Lie, Cheat – this is why there will always be “class war”, and is the primary reason i believe that the only way to fix things is to eliminate wage-slavery! 😐

Rick Santorum, Meet My Son — He has a degenerative disease that has left him blind, paralyzed, and increasingly nonresponsive. If I had known before he was born, I would have saved him from suffering. – whoever it comes down to, rick santorum must not be allowed to win the election. 😐

this week’s WHO NEEDS TERRORISTS? department includes the following: Dad Arrested, Strip-Searched After 4-Year-Old Daughter Draws a Picture of a Gun in School and Remember, Cops Are Your "Friends" and Excessive Force Is Dangerous — To View on YouTube and Arrested for Meditating and Judge Orders Top N. Miami Senior High Student To Leave U.S. and TSA forces new mom to pump milk out of her breasts in public restroom before boarding the plane

Cleaning up the ’hood — Focusing on drug markets rather than users means less crime – the problem is that, despite its success in reducing crime, DMI has been in use since 2004, and nobody has taken the slightest bit of notice… it requires too much participation from people who wouldn’t be affected otherwise, if the drug dealer went to jail… that and the fact that people would still want to do drugs… that’s why the only logical solution is to legalise ALL drugs and tax the resultant income. i don’t know a single user of cannabis that wouldn’t be happy to pay a tax on legally purchased weed… 😉

Verisign seizes .com domain registered via foreign Registrar on behalf of US Authorities. and The Systematic Destruction of the Bill of Rights – in spite of the fact that SOPA is in limbo, the US gummint still feels like it has the authority to seize domains that exist outside of US jurisdiction, any time they want, and here are the reasons why…

When they took the fourth amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment,
    I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the second amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t own a gun.
Now they’ve taken the first amendment,
    and I can say nothing about it.

… but that will not stop me from saying stuff about it anyway! 😛

Election hacked, drunken robot elected to school board – if it wasn’t such a slap in the face, it would be funny… and it just starts with having your admin username and password set to “admin”… 😐

New speech-jamming gun hints at dystopian Big Brother future – 😮
