Tech at Night: Private Manning loses Wikipedia, Anonymity aids a murderer?
I enjoy that in America, we refuse to give official sanction of the radical appropriation of May Day, and instead have a Labor Day on a completely different day, separating ourselves from anti-liberty radicals.
You can tell the anti-NSA people are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now in their attempts to attack the agency. It’s kind of ridiculous. Even if we take traitor Edward Snowden at his word, despite how he could easily have modified or even fabricated parts of or entire documents to push an agenda, it’s actually the NSA’s job to spy on foreign agents like the Qatar-funded Al Jazeera.
Of course, this is really interesting timing for DEA to be seeking massive amounts of call metadata. That’s not going to go over well with the libertarians. Then again, I don’t know if it’ll sway anyone who didn’t already favor free dope and sodomy. Sorry, but it’s true. You can talk a lot of people into part-way legalizations of cannabis, but it takes a hardcore radical to go all the way and legalize opiates and cocaine.

The Bad Side To Voting For Santa Claus
So I take my smart-alecky little boy over to our town library. He likes anything in the Diary of The Wimpy Kid series. My boy checks a couple of them out.

It seems the guy sees him when he’s sleeping (no diving under the covers Commando), knows when he’s awake, knows if he’s been bad or good, so he’d better be good for goodness sake! To quote Cipher Reagan: “What a mind-job!”

Drug-related/vigilante/(both) violence escalates in Mexico.
Well, I suppose that this was inevitable. A self-styled drug-trafficking group calling itself the “Zeta Killers” claimed responsibility this week for the recent murders of at least 35 people believed to belong to the Zetas, Mexico’s most violent criminal organization. The claim by the “Mata Zetas” has stoked fears that Mexico, like Colombia a generation before, may be witnessing the rise of paramilitary drug gangs | Read More »
DEA now linked to Operation Fast & Furious.
It would appear that the DEA does not want to be the fall guy in Operation Fast & Furious*, either: DEA head Michele M. Leonhart admitted in a letter to Senator Grassley (Judiciary) and Rep. Issa (Oversight) that her organization was in fact involved in the investigation, and provided support for it. This is a significant admission by Ms. Leonhart, given that (as Bob Owens** | Read More »
