Tech at Night: Marriott gets off easy for its Denial of Service attacks
Have to say, sometimes enforcement of things is rather inconsistent in this country.
If you or I (or Aaron Swartz) were caught making unauthorized access to other people’s computer equipment, to engage in a Denial of Service attack, we’d risk criminal charges. Marriott International? Not so much.

Joe Biden’s apology tour continues
Last month, Joe Biden was actively employed in offending Americans. This month he shows his foreign policy chops and offends some of our key allies in the Coalition of the Useless who are helping Obama conduct his quasi-war against ISIS. Vice President Biden apologized on Sunday for the second time in two days, in this instance to the United Arab Emirates, for comments he made | Read More »
Why public health professionals fail the nation
If you want the explanation in a nutshell of our haphazard response to the appearance of a single Ebola case in Dallas only need to view the first view this video of a debate between Bill Maher and Ben Affleck on HBO’s “Real Time.” It is a sad state of affairs when you have to rely on Bill Maher for the intellectual content of a | Read More »

If you want to smell the flopsweat hitting the re-election campaign, there is no better example than this tweet from the NRSC:
World Health Organization Wants in on Bloomberg’s Sweet, Sweet Cigarette Tax Money
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s most enduring legacy is that of the ultimate nanny stater. In addition to his failed Big Gulp ban, ban on trans fats, and ban on e-cigarette use in public places, Nanny Mike also pushed a range of anti-smoking policies including a ban on smoking in public places and a really massive tobacco tax hike that drove the price | Read More »

The Alison Grimes campaign may now start imploding.
How much money did the Democrats spend on this one, again? – Because I bet that, say, wouldn’t have minded getting some of that. Or Mary Burke. Or Greg Orman, later this month: U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is lying about her support for the state’s coal industry according to Kentucky Democrats, including members of her campaign team, who were captured on a hidden | Read More »
NRCC Withholds Funds After Marilinda Garcia (NH-02) Says She May Not Vote for Boehner [updated]
I am going to let CNN’s John King do the reporting. You can decide for yourself on this after watching the video. Update: CNN now has the following up regarding this incident: Camp Garcia reached out after the show Sunday to clear things up — and to give an unequivocal response to the question the candidate did not directly answer on the radio show. “Marilinda | Read More »
Hold Obama and the Democrats Accountable for the Terrorist Threat
Since 1945 Republicans have not won the popular vote unless national security was the primary issue. But security issues were virtually absent from the 2008 and 2012 elections. This gave victories to Barack Obama, the most anti-military president in American history. Fortunately, the prospects for 2016 are looking marginally better because Republicans are now actually focusing on the fact that an anti-military presidency has ominous | Read More »
The Logical Consequence of Treating Your Base Like Garbage
I expect the Republicans to win the Senate and make gains in the House of Representatives. But it is notable that the Republicans are struggling in a year that should be to their advantage. The latest NBC News poll has terrible news for the GOP in Kansas and bad news in North Carolina. Likewise, if the poll is to be believed, Iowa is closer than | Read More »
Scoring Congress at RedState
I have long wanted to do something with this website that I have been unable to do. Unable, that is, until today. Starting today you are going to start seeing a new feature on RedState. If I write about or or or or a host of other Republicans, you will start seeing a percentage next to their names. That is their Heritage Action for America | Read More »
I *do* feel bad for people with horribly crushing student loan debt.
But that’s because I don’t like to blame people for falling for a lie: …while some people say these 18-year-old kids don’t know what they’re getting themselves into, let’s not pretend we don’t know better. I distinctly remember asking my friend how he would pay off the roughly $70,000 debt he would incur to obtain a major in Ancient Greek and Latin at a liberal arts | Read More »
