Voting / Vote Fraud

It’s a crazy day today! Check it out… The Jessica Rabbit picture is a realization of many childhood fantasies! (more…)

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY / TECHNOLOGY WAR / CENSORSHIP / CORPORATIONS: Time Warner/RoadRunner blocking web access to — but only in Southern California, where Officer Franklin White shot a mom & her 8-year-old son in an alleged road rage incident. Assuming the cause and effect are true (And they certainly seem to be), then if this does not anger every American reading it, I question whether you belong in my country. Corporate censorship is legal, but you can be damn sure it was government pressure that caused this. DON’T PAY FOR ISPs THAT WORK AGAINST YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. What the hell? You pay money to access the internet, a world of information, and you can’t even find out about a local cop that shoots 8-year-olds, because the company you paid has decided to give you the privilege of paying for your own censored ignorance? FUCK YOU, COMCAST. Someone should burn a flag in front of their headquarters. Read on for PARACHUTING KITTIES. (more…)

Lots of links today. No time to summarize. See below. The Flickr photoset was pretty neat; the cell-phone study is important; becoming a quadriplegic due to police abuse and only getting $100K really fucking sucks. Read on for the links. (more…)

And of course, an insane tale if I’ve ever heard one — Grandmother arrested at McDonald’s for not pulling forward. Can anyone please identify the arresting officer? [UPDATE: Officer Matthew Parco] And put that piggy on a diet? Pretty much everyone is failing to see how this is a proper course of action–including the mayor and the people who ran the jail (who wouldn’t put her in a cell or a jumpsuit–checks and balances, baby). Voting machines fail, causing many people to not be able to vote. Torture. Taser lawsuit victory. Cops shackle stabbing victim to wheelchair, then Officer William J. Cozzi beats him – video included. This guy was a stabbing victim, and they charged him for not cooperating… Just how cooperative are you supposed to be after getting stabbedwhile drunk? It’s not necessarily you’re fault that you’re now drunk and stabbed in a hospital. I’d like to know more but what was done was uncalled for no matter what. At least he didn’t beat a handcuffed suspect until his NECK BROKEthat officer got … drumroll … a ten-hour suspension for breaking a neck! And who said cops aren’t above the law??? (more…)

Music reviews! Voltaire! Ween! Paypal blocks Ron Paul recount (TechCrunch backs this story up, by the way). LOCAL: Fairfax County Deputy Robert A. Rombero Jr. pleads guilty to child pornography charges. WTF: Man, innocent, sits in jail for 11 years — including ***2 years*** after judge orders him released! Man dies from abdominal injuries, broken neck; authorities claim he fell out of his bed. Yeah, right! (more…)

Ohio confirms voting machine vulnerabilities — remember, Ohio was the state that potentially stole the 2004 election (please refer to the Clint Curtis testimony to the Ohio Supreme Court). Anyway, cop shoots football player 3 times. Of course it’s okay. Other cops beat a man so bad he is still requiring 24/7 medical care 7 years later – do they help the victim? No. They don’t even offer a settlement until a lawsuit is imminent. They are heavy-handed bastards, jackbooted thugs. These police do not deserve anyone’s respect. Please note that both garbage man and taxi driver are occupations with a higher rate of deaths than being a police officer. Their excuses are hollow and these practices must be stopped at any cost.

California testers find flaws in ES&S voting machines. E&S sounds as bad as Diebold! Paper seals & locks were all easily bypassed, BIOS could be reconfigured to boot off a thumbdrive, allowing anybody to do anything they want with the data. And speaking of the data, critical system files stored as plaintext (not encrypted). And theprotocols that transmit the data transmit it unencrypted (you wouldn’t protect democracy as much as your latest credit card purchase?!?). This allows for any number of man-in-the-middle attacks. Clint Curtis might have something to say on this:
