Obama's Secret Deal with Medved

Oh My

no Jimmy, no Clinton, no Obama

Dear Rodge:

Over the years you've posted many common sense fixes for everyday problems, so I hope you have one for my chronic bloody nose.  The Obamacare death panel says I'm too young to qualify for the indicated rhinoplasty w/ shield graft & alar rim graft surgury.  Help!

The Aging Process


I attempted to create a person in order to emulate the aging process. The idea was that something is happening but you can't see it but you can feel it, like aging itself.

Had Danielle been given a nice dose of estrogen along the way, she might not have died a spinster.  I'm just sayin'

Police State Culture                             



A technique commonly used by hackers, a MITM attack involves using a fake security certificate to pose as a legitimate Web service, bypass browser security settings, and then intercept data that an unsuspecting person is sending to that service. Hackers could, for example, pose as a banking Web site and steal passwords.

The technique is particularly sly because the hackers then use the password to log in to

Such attacks can be used against e-mail providers too.
 
Earlier this week, Techdirt picked up on a passing mention in a Brazilian news story and a Slate article to point out that the US National Security Agency had apparently(using  MITM)  impersonated Google on at least one occasion to gather data on people.

I suspect we are now sailing in seas so studded with mines that scarcely a day can go by without reports of new sinkings. So to speak. The solution?  Short of killing everyone?  I can't think of one.

A democrat, an Independent, and a Republican walk into a bar ...

One of us is a Democrat; one, an independent; another, a Republican. Yet, together, we recognize several hard truths: Government spending levels are unsustainable. Higher taxes, however advisable or not, fail to come close to solving the problem. Discretionary spending must be reduced but without harming the safety net for our most vulnerable, or sacrificing future growth (e.g., research and education). Defense and homeland security spending should not be immune to reductions. Most consequentially, the growth in spending on entitlement programs—Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare—must be curbed.

These truths are not born of some zeal for austerity or unkindness, but of arithmetic. The growing debt burden threatens to crush the next generation of Americans.

They could haveshould havestopped at "Government spending levels are unsustainable," because everything after that is more of what we've been hearing for 50 years+. 
  • . Discretionary spending must be reduced but without harming the safety net for our most vulnerable, or sacrificing future growth (e.g., research and education).
Without harming the safety net .. is the phrase that sinks all ships. And future growth depends on government funding  education?  Forgive us millions while we laugh bitterly.
  • Defense and homeland security spending should not be immune to reductions.
Dept of Homeland Security as constituted is a bigger threat to the nation than Islamo fascists.  What they mean is, "We spend too much on defense."
  • Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare—must be curbed.
Curbed?  Have they heard of Obamacare?

I'm laughed out.
