A disturbing letter I found anonymously posted on a forum.  It is amazingly disturbing.

Dear Citizens of the World,

I believe the time has come to reveal to you some of the perplexities you have faced in recent decades.It is well for you to understand some of these things so that you might know how to behave in the New Order now taking shape in the earth. We want you to be able to become fully involved and integrated into our new society. After all, this is for your best interest if you will do this. (more…)

Here’s a random comment from an internet forum.  I’m not posting the original poster’s identity, to protect them.
(I’m also not asking for their permission to repost it.) 
“I worked from 2001 to 2005 in a company where I was privy to the bid requests of the DARPA, NSA, CIA and others regards information mining and technology related. I am sure somebody will want to disagree with me and call me troll for saying so, but the Bush Administration’s NSA spying campaign which they call limited monitoring of terrorists is nothing of the sort.
The Bush Administration undertook at various high levels in the US Government to secure every single communication and to process it for their use. That is a fact. It is not opinion. To be blunt this was securing a level of invasion of privacy that the German SS (1930’s to 1940’s) never imagined possible. It’s only goal has to be the construction of a police state. I saw this in the bid requests! They wanted 100% of all data including to be able to evaluate photographs, many languages and even other issues. They wanted 100% of all commercial transactions and to pattern everything.

Read this for what you will, it isn’t toll to tell the truth. I am reasonably certain some party will think I am being partizan. I am not. I am reasonably certain that the Democrat leadership would do the same thing if given the chance. We in the USA have a real problem with our leaders. Seeking to understand their behavior through the eyes of their party propaganda machines is just nuts. Republicans all too often have a Karl Rove point of view. Of course the Democrats have their own propaganda team. We need to see that what is being stolen in the name of national security is all of our security. We have none if people like these destroy the US Constitution this way.

For those who cannot read, I will spell it out for you. The US Constitution REMOVES from government the power to do anything not permitted. Specifically warrantless searches are prohibited in the US Constitution. The claim that there is no law prohibiting what is happening is just ignorant at the highest level of ignorance. This infinite seaching and invasion of privacy is ILLEGAL — 100% — no excuses. Excusing it because some Democrat did it or some previous crook did it is no excuse.”


Click here, then click the ratings column to sort from highest-to-lowest.

This is about 200 movies I’ve rated.  In my netflix account I’ve rated 1400, and I wish I could export that to IMDB.  Anyone know how to do that?

I really like Type O Negative‘s newest album, Life Is Killing Me. (more…)

So Dave Oranchak says I need to blog more about the shows I watch. 

Anyway………….. Justice League Unlimited is fabulous.  I was sooooooo pleasantly surprised to see S5E05 after such a long hiatus.  We watched it that night.  It was great.  It had been way too long.

But then to see a torrent appear (minin0va) for S5E06 the next freaking day was awesome.  It took less than 10 minutes to download at 300K/s.  Not that I’m impatient, but when I had 75K/s, you could drop a torrent in right when you got home and if you were lucky it would be done at 10 or 11PM.  It’s nice having no limits or backlog.

So anyway, Justice League S5E06 was really good.  They’ve shyed away from magic and dealt with science generally, but this episode had a mystic angle, souls, magic, all that jazz.  And it was done well.  And the plots had been building up to the battle at the end pretty much for this entire season.  

I hope the remaining ~7 eps come out soon!

Meanwhile, we’re working through Frasier.   There’s almost as many episodes as The Simpsons so I expect it to take awhile.  (NOTE: It ended up taking 3-4 months to watch them all!)
