US government has betrayed the internet

In Nerds only on September 6, 2013 at 11:10 am

Great article in The Guardian today regarding the unlawful surveillance of the internet by the USG.  By hacking online encryption the USG has betrayed businesses,  governments and citizens around the world.  This has resulted in a new cold war but on the internet.

On one side we have anarchist groups like Anonymous and whistle-blowers like Assange, Manning and Snowden.  On the other side we have out-of-control USG agencies like the NSA and CIA breaking all recognizable laws to invade our privacy in the name of the all-powerful national security state.  How could this possibly end well?

 

Can Civilization Survive Capitalism?

In Polytricks on March 20, 2013 at 3:32 pm

This is the title of Noam Chomsky’s latest essay.  In it he asks the question whether we can survive the corporate elites denial of global warming.

Of course ‘capitalism’ is shorthand for corporate control over everything.

‘True’ capitalism has long been pushed out of the nest by greedy, aggressive corporate carpetbaggers and banksters.

These pretend-capitalists have gleefully consumed all the public lands, public interests and public money they can get their hands on.

Here is Chomsky describing how ‘capitalism’ and ‘democracy’ are really just marketing terms used to confused and deceive the voter/consumer into ‘buying’ a product they neither want or need.

Problem is that the ‘ism-schism’ isn’t really the answer.. we don’t need communism or capitalism.

In this video Chomsky says that what appears to be opposite dogmas are actually ideological revolving-doors for the sociopaths that make up our leadership.

The corporate elite believe they are entitled bullshit and propagandise us into doing things their way… and all the while.. doing things their way is leading us into the abyss.. ;o)

 

Millions sue Monsanto for bio-piracy

In Polytricks on March 15, 2013 at 9:40 am

Universally loathed and hated Monsanto is being sued for bio-piracy by India, Brazil, Peru and Hungary.  In legal gymnastics eerily reminiscent of the copyright troll extortion tactics, Monsanto claims 2 % royalty on the retail value of the crops grown from its GMO seed.

Now 5 million Brazilian farmers have had enough and are now suing Monsanto for $7.7 billion.

Monsanto is your classic evil corporate pirate.  It has successfully corrupted the political and legal system to poison us with their filthy GMO foods.

These kind of corporations have to be banned, and sued into bankruptcy.

Webcam RAT’s

In Nerds only on March 11, 2013 at 11:33 am

Sure video conferencing is cool and every laptop has a web cam these days but what about the proliferation of RAT software?  Turns out that remote access tools (RAT) are getting easier to hide and have become wildly popular with creepy trolls.

I  feel that to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Unbelievably the school laptop program has been abused and schools are ending up in court for spying on students in their own bedrooms.

The assurances of the ‘experts’ about internet firewalls and anti-virus software are over-blown to put it politely.

The only real way to protect from this invasion of your privacy is to put some tape over the web cam, close the lid of laptop or turn the darn computer off when not using it… ;o)

Here is a video of a young mom getting “Ratted” and realizing that someone is hacking her laptop.. opening cd trays and sending chat messages..

Seems to me that our privacy online is non-existent.  We have to act accordingly and teach the kids to close those lids.

Copyright Trolls out of control

In Nerds only on March 8, 2013 at 9:51 am

Copyright Trolls, Prenda Law in Los Angeles have lost their minds.  They subpoenaed WordPress for two years of IP addresses of everyone who read two WordPress troll-fighting blogs.  What?

This really shows what kinda ‘lawyers’ these creepy jerks are!  It also shows how the copyright police are out of control and the government needs to start throwing these jackasses in jail and start protecting the public from these predators.

The following video shows how the public are being shaken down by unscrupulous lawyers and preposterous copyright ‘laws’ that have created a creepy cottage industry for copyright trolls.

One president has done more than any other to pander to the RIAA and MPAA.  Obama has appointed ‘Entertainment’ lobbyists as federal judges sitting on crucial copyright lawsuits.

He has applauded outrageous fines for ‘copyright infringement’.  His Justice Dept. has even extradited a UK citizen to the US to face charges of linking to copyrighted material.

The following video protests the victimization of downloaders and lack of prosecution of banksters.

In fact it suggests that Obama is stalling prosecution of banksters until the statute of limitations runs out on them….

Mickeysoft taken to the cleaners by EU

In Humour, Nerds only on March 7, 2013 at 7:22 am

Mickeysoft is getting an ass-kicking from the EU over the browser wars.  It was mandated by EU laws to give its European customers the choice of browser.  Mysteriously on Windoze 7 the mandated choice failed to appear.  Resulting in a nearly billion dollar fine.

I guess Mickeysoft is going to have to think again about trying to bullying the Europeans.  This is just the latest huge fine Mickeysoft has incurred doing business in Europe.  Shows a really slow learning-curve for the conceited corporation… ;o)

These shenanigans are all the more tawdry given that Internet Explorer is the worst browser on the market.  How badly does IE suck?  Well it sucks so bad that it started its own internet meme.

This meme proved to be enough of an embarrassment to Mickeysoft that they even tried running a commercial saying that IE sucked ‘less’..

What?.. that is so pathetically Mickeysoft .. trying to out-meme a meme… ;o)

and oh yeah.. we don’t like being characterized as “Microsoft haters” just because we aren’t slack-jawed, brain-dead, Windoze fanbois… ;o)

Hanford nuclear waste tanks ‘leaking’

In Polytricks on February 26, 2013 at 9:21 am

The governor of Washington State had to admit that highly contaminated nuclear waste water is and has been leaking from storage tanks at the US’s oldest nuclear waste dump.  The good news?  The ‘experts’ say that there is no ‘risk’.. for now….

Weren’t these the same ‘experts’ who claimed that nuclear waste could be ‘safely’ stored in the first place?  And if there is no ‘risk’ for now what about later and how much later given that nuclear waste is dangerous for thousands of years.  Here is Dr. Helen Caldicott addressing Occupy Hanford last year.

 

George Orwell essay on Politics and the English Language

In Polytricks on February 16, 2013 at 9:08 am

George Orwell wrote an essay on the manipulation of the English language in 1946.  Orwell famously stated that political speech could “make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.. “

Orwell advocated writing in plain english, he said there was a  close association between bad prose and oppressive ideology.

Often I feel that the weasels have won simply since weasels words have suffocated out plain english.  Meaningless baffle-gab weasels phrases like, “moving forward”, “in terms of”, “we need to educate”, “collateral damage”, “start a conversation about”.. etc.. etc.. ad nausaum.

Words are now used as weapons to conceal, distort and confuse the issue.  FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) in other words.  Orwell’s warning rings louder as the years pass…

Human Rights Watch spotlights Highway of Tears

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on February 14, 2013 at 11:36 am

Human Rights Watch released a very damning report on the RCMP concerning the Highway of Tears.  Yet again the RCMP are being exposed as the violent racist arm of the federal government’s ongoing repression and abuse of Canada’s native peoples, particularly their women.

The name of the report, “Those who take us away” is the Carrier Nation‘s translated name for the police.

Its not the first time that international human rights groups have been stirred to action by racist violence from the Canadian government.  In 2008 the UN took Canada to task for “urgent concerns including violence against Indigenous women, extractive industries on Indigenous lands, the high rates of incarceration of Indigenous peoples, .. etc.”

As far back as 2004 Amnesty International took Canada to task for “the egregious neglect of the safety of Native women in particular”.

Too big to Jail?

In Polytricks on February 11, 2013 at 8:20 am

Matt Taibbi has being relentlessly pursuing  the banksters.  He has been called the only honest financial reporter in the whole US.  Matt has called Goldman Sachs ‘too big to jail‘.

While the government saw fit to beat up, arrest and jail thousands of Occupy Wall St. protesters there has been no meaningful prosecution of the banksters who destroyed the whole economy of the nation.  Here is Matt explaining how the scam works.

Matt also wrote an article about Bank of America called ‘Too crooked to Fail‘.  So there is plenty of evidence of criminality and reckless lawlessness on Wall St, but there is deafening silence from the Justice Dept. when it comes to actually prosecuting the banksters.

Here is Matt explaining exactly how government corruption is creating an under-class of people who can be jailed and a financial elite who cannot be jailed despite how egregious their crimes are.
