#‎FeelTheBern‬ ‪#‎DropOutHillary‬

And a word on hags like Blue Nation Review who makes the following claim with respect to the now viral tag #‎DropOutHillary‬: This dynamic will surely be familiar to a lot of women. It is familiar to me. An eminently qualified woman being told to step aside to make room for a less qualified man? Been there, heard that.Im going to bet that Im not the only woman who has a problem with people telling a woman whos winning, and has the best shot to be the first female president, to drop out to make way for a male candidate who is losing and who has nowhere near her level of experience, competency, and preparedness. That comment is so far out of touch with reality it is hard to know where to start. Let’s just say that if you believe hillary is competent, well, you just are not paying attention. That is what this is all about, we don’t want another neoliberal neocon telling us what we can’t do and getting us into more wars based on insulting claims of terrorism and national security. The there is not a god damn thing about our needs that are sexist. In fact, when the hillary hags tell us we being sexist or that our minds have been clouded by right wing talking points, and that is their best argument, you hags have a real serious problem.

Clinton – Dems – Corrupt to the core

6 April, 2016 (08:33) | Politics | By: admin

The DNC has been involved in money laundering in a sleezy deal to funnel money to the clinton campagne more than a year before any voter had a chance to express their preferences. And clinton still has the nerve to question whether Bernie is a democrat. It is more than obvious that clinton has gone completely rouge to pursue her dream of owning the button to kill. She is no more a democrat than carl rove, in fact, she is just like him. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR THAT SLEAZY BITCH NAMED CLINTON. NEVER!

Corporate fools in disbelief

I don’t know how Chris slipped this interview past the comcast execs, perhaps it was the repeated questions about how he would not believe that those that feel the bern will not vote for the hill. That is what is wrong. We are told we are fools unless we settle for the corporate status quo. And while Chris allowed this interview to happen, I do not recommend watching any of the propaganda found on today’s msnbc. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HILLARY.

The Future of Broadcast news

Lamestreet media, like the huffingtonpost, continue to run hit pieces on “feeling the bern” mixed with a heavy dose of celebrities wearing so called “hot” dresses or whatever kind of trivia these folks think make up click bait. Meanwhile serious folks like The Young Turks are slowly taking over the jobs that lamestreet media has fought to deprive from all of us. Case in point:

giant fuck you to the above-the-law billionaire class

The overblown war on terrorism

27 March, 2016 (08:28) | Politics, Science | By: admin

If there really is such a thing, a war on a tactic, then as I have long stated, it is overblown. Americans don’t die due to terrorism, at least, not very many. Hear are the major causes of death in the good ol US of A during the year 2014: 1. Heart disease: 611,105 2. Cancer: 584,881 3. Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 149,205 4. Accidents (unintentional injuries): 130,557 5. Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 128,978 6. Alzheimers disease: 84,767 7. Diabetes: 75,578 8. Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,979 9. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 47,112 10. Intentional self-harm (suicide): 41,149 And to top it off during the ten years from 2005 – 2015 1 Americans were killed on US soil by extremists, of whom 24 were killed by Muslim extremists (white supremacists etc. were more deadly than Muslims). That is an average of a little over 7 per year. In the same period, some 303 Americans died from terrorism worldwide, or 30.3 per year. People just die in unintended accidents like falling down in the bathtub a the rate of 130,00 a year. Despite the tiny number of victims (and each life of every one of them is precious), the American government shells out around $500 million on anti-terrorism programs per victim. But the USG only puts out $10,000 on cancer research per victim. This post originally ran on Truthdig contributor Juan Coles website.

The Apple Fight Is About All of Us

19 March, 2016 (07:35) | Economics, FBI, NSA, Politics | By: admin

A Joint Statement from Access Now, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation Apple is engaged in a high-profile battle against a court order demanding it write, sign, and deploy custom computer code to defeat the security on an iPhone. As civil liberties groups committed to the freedom of thought that underpins a democratic society, this fight is our fight. It is the fight of every person who believes in a future where technology does not come at the cost of privacy or individual security and where there are reasonable safeguards on government power. This is a fight that implicates all technology users. There are already bad actors trying to defeat the security on iPhones, and an FBI-ordered backdoor will only assist their efforts. Once this has been created, malicious hackers will surely increase their attacks on the FBI and Apple, hoping to ferret out clues to this entrance route and they may well succeed. The precedent created by this case is disturbing: it creates a new pathway for the government to conscript private companies into building surveillance tools. If Apple can be compelled to create a master key to unlock this iPhone, then little will prevent the government from ordering any company to turn its products into tools of surveillance, compromising the safety, privacy, and security of everyone. Our organizations are committed to defending the security and human rights of everyday people whose data will be implicated by this shortsighted policy. We call on the Obama Administration to heed the advice of neutral security experts, engineers, and even his own advisors who have affirmed the dangers inherent in the order issued to Apple. We urge them to reject the calls of those who seek to undermine our security, whether through backdoors into our software, master keys to unlock our digital data, or pressure on companies to downgrade our security. Over 100,000 people have called for President Obama to stand up for security in our devices through Its time for the President to be accountable to them, and to all of us. We ask our supporters to join this call by sharing this graphic with President Obama and the rest of the world.

Apple this Comrade Feinstein

14 March, 2016 (07:52) | FBI, NSA, Politics | By: admin

Comrade feinstein, you may know her as an alleged senator from california, has recently submitted a bill/amendment/whatever called the Burr-Feinstein encryption bill. WTF? I sent her a very nasty email and she deserves it. But, as usual, someone else has spent the time and effort to really clarify what a fricken yuge mistake this bill is and why our comrade from ca doesn’t know what the hell she is talking about. To hammer the nail of my point in, tech companies are working to INCREASE the use of encryption. And to confirm, even the most hawkish senators are having second thoughts, “Its just not so simple”, Graham responded. “I thought it was that simple”.
