I could have been somebody

Posted By:Hazymac, 1/5/2019 12:26:03 AM

People have often heard the phrase "to be someone" but whether you can prove you are that one has never been easy. The Microsoft blog notes that having an identity is necessary for just about anything these days. "In the U.S. and abroad, fundamental rights and services like voting, healthcare, housing and education are tethered to legal proof of identification – you can’t participate if you don’t have it. Yet nearly one in six people worldwide – the majority of them being women, children and refugees – live without it. The lack of legal documentation not only strips

Sorry, I have programmed computers, been a network manager, system manager and professionally used some of the most powerful supercomputers on the planet since 1968.

I am entirely, completely, irrevocably unconvinced that there is ANY concept of ´secure and inviolate´ storage of data on any computer, or that it is even a real possibility at some point in the future.

Totally unconvinced by all the "smart experts" on this blockchain/distributed/unforgeable baloney.

All things on computers can be modified by a sufficiently well thought out and connected program.
End of story.

To believe otherwise is to be a gullible fool.

Computers follow programs and store and move zeroes and ones. Nothing else. Different programs, or modifications to existing programs can be created, erased, forged, recreated, and destroyed at will, given adequate skills and time. No more secure from insiders or hackers than writing on a blackboard.

Can´t argue with the idea of data as a comodity.
The problem is not a lack of secure IDs,it is the fact that we have far too much government in our lives.
Do I really need the TSA doing a full rectal exam while running my six govt issued IDs through a scan?
AND...do you understand that those discounts you get for signing up for coupons at the grocery store are actually the stores selling your purchase history?
Ain´t nothing free or discounted...

The Democratic Party’s Anti-Semitism
Problem Is Obama’s Legacy
PJ Media, by Matt Margolis    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 3/16/2019 7:30:26     Post Reply
Why does Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) still have her position on the House Foreign Relations Committee? House Republicans stripped Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) of his committee positions after making his own controversial remarks. Omar should have met the same fate. But considering recent history, it´s not surprising that Omar remains unpunished. It´s just the latest example of their party turning a blind eye to the rise of anti-Semitism in their ranks over the years—if not embracing it at times. Perhaps the most shocking thing was Omar´s subsequent criticism of Barack Obama, calling his “hope and change” slogan a mirage. “We

Florida’s political partisans don’t like each other. That might seem obvious, but compared to other states we take it to the extreme. Our partisans — liberal and conservative — are among the most politically prejudiced in the country, according to polling firm PredictWise. That’s not something to be proud of. The analysis, featured in a recent article in the Atlantic magazine, ranked each county in the nation for political tolerance. An accompanying map shaded the least prejudiced counties in white. Dark green indicated most prejudice. Florida was entirely dark green, every one of our 67 counties. No other state was so biased.

The attack on the mosques, like Anders Brevik´s murderous rampage in idyllic Norway happened in New Zealand, ironically rated in 2017 the safest country in the world after Iceland. It´s a sad reminder that no place is exempt from ethnic conflict. Et in Arcadia ego sum, whether Arcadia is Africa, Burma or Western China. Wherever populations mix under pressure there´s the potential for volatility.

Florida Legislature should approve
smokable medical marijuana
Tampa Bay Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 3/12/2019 10:20:54     Post Reply
They did not listen to voters who overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 to legalize medical marijuana. They did not listen to a judge in 2018 who ruled their ban on smokable medical marijuana is unconstitutional. But state lawmakers did listen to Gov. Ron DeSantis, and this week the Florida Legislature finally is poised to pass legislation that would allow smokable medical marijuana. It’s about time. The House should send to the governor this week legislation passed with bipartisan support by the Senate last week that would legalize smokable medical marijuana. Lawmakers really have no choice, because DeSantis gave

Welcome to another Bubba the Love Sponge news cycle. Like it or not, Tampa Bay’s most famous – and perhaps infamous – talk radio host has been towed again into the national news conversation, this time after comments Fox News host Tucker Carlson made on Bubba’s show years ago went viral Sunday. Media Matters for America released a nearly four-minute audio reel in which Carlson refers to women as “extremely primitive” and uses other sexist language. In another clip, Carlson discusses Warren Jeffs, then on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list for arranging marriages with underage girls, in a way Media Matters

I never met John Dingell, the long-long-serving congressman from Michigan who died last month. My main recollection of him is the fear he struck in lawyers of my acquaintance with the investigations he conducted as Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations (he also chaired the full Committee). Some Washington law firms had what they called “a Dingell practice” devoted to helping clients cope with the bullying (as they saw it) to which Dingell and his ambitious staffers (some of whom presumably aspired to work one day in a Dingell practice) subjected them.

Liberal Jews Better Wake

Back in Berlin in the 1920s and well into the 30s, many, if not most, Jewish liberals of that time and place thought it could never happen to them. They were good Germans, after all, culturally advanced members of a sophisticated society much like today´s Manhattan. As we all know, they were dead wrong. Hitler put the atheist communists and the ultra-orthodox Hasidim on the same trains to Auschwitz. He could not have cared less about what side of what they were on At first glance, it might seem excessive to reference such extreme events, but you don´t have to

On Monday, Google software engineer Mike Wacker published an email he received from a fellow Google employee. That employee recounted a discussion with his manager in which the manager said Donald Trump won the 2016 election thanks to fake news and hate speech. "I posted a comment on a meme regarding fake news on Search and someone reported it to HR. I didn’t say I was in favor or against, just cautioned that we need to be carful [sic]," the anonymous employee wrote. "My manager brought it up in our 1:1 last week.

Fed-Up House Republican
Releases Bruce Ohr Testimony
Showing Major Conflict of Interest
PJ Media, by Debra Heine    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 3/9/2019 7:07:51     Post Reply
In a surprise move Friday, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, unilaterally released the 268-page transcript of an August 2018 interview with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr. Collins explained that his patience with the Justice Department “has grown thin.” He took to the House floor and asked that the full, unredacted transcript be put on the record. In his testimony, Ohr revealed that former British spy Christopher Steele was simultaneously paid by both the FBI and the Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS during the 2016 election. The transcript also shows claims conflicting

Venezuela: Socialism

"A major power outage hit crisis-stricken Venezuela on Thursday, according to Reuters ... a problem the government of President Nicolas Maduro quickly blamed on "sabotage" at a hydroelectric dam that provides much of the country´s power." National life ground to a standstill, telecommunications -- including the internet -- stopped working, hospitals were plunged into darkness and cities of millions lay helpless without electricity. As the outage continued into Friday spreading to every Venezuelan state, it became clear this was going to become the biggest of the blackouts yet and Maduro´s officials increasingly pointed a finger at the United States.

Having escaped condemnation for her anti-Semitic remarks, and indeed having avoided even a straight resolution condemning anti-Semtism itself, Rep. Ilhan Omar has gone on the attack. That’s not surprising, but some might be surprised at the target of her latest attack. This time, it’s not Jews. This time the target is former president Barack Obama. (Snip) If this were the view of only Omar and some fringe Democrats, it wouldn’t be a big deal. The problem for Democrats is that it’s the view of significant portion of congressional Democrats and Democratic voters. Omar is saying what many Democratic politicians believe but

"Every government having regard to good morals ought to repress the Jews," opined Pierre Leroux, the leftist credited with coining the term ´Socialism´. "When we speak of Jews, we mean the Jewish spirit, the spirit of profit, of lucre, of gain, the spirit of commerce." "What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money," Karl Marx ranted. American socialism traces its ideological ancestry to Charles Fourier, a French socialist bigot who declared that Jews were the embodiment of capitalism, “parasites, merchants, usurers”, and the "incarnation of commerce: parasitical, deceitful, traitorous and unproductive".

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was yanked off the air on Friday night a week after she ignited controversy, and earned a rare condemnation from her network, over comments about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. The network aired a repeat of the documentary show "Scandalous" instead of Pirro´s "Justice with Judge Jeanine," which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET. Pirro has hosted the show since 2011. "We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters," a Fox News spokesperson told ABC News. The network would not offer further comment and it was not clear when Pirro´s show would return to the air.

ABC’s The View co-host Meghan McCain said Saturday evening that no one will ever love President Donald Trump in the same way her late father Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was loved. “No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?” McCain wrote on Twitter. The View co-host’s scathing remarks came in response to President Trump’s criticism of her late father’s involvement in giving the FBI a copy of the largely debunked Steele dossier.

Colorado could be part of voting history next general election day, joining 11 other states looking to ensure that their electoral college votes echo the will of the American majority to elect the next president. Gov. Jared Polis signed a law Friday that would allot the state´s electoral college votes to whichever candidate won the national popular vote. The Washington Post previously reported the law´s signing. The trend comes as Americans have shown greater support in recent years for a more democratic presidential election process, without the translational risks of the electoral college.

Former Vice President Joe Biden had a private meeting with former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams on Thursday, prompting speculation about the implications of that conversation for each one´s potential presidential candidacy. A source close to Abrams confirmed the meeting and said that it occurred at Biden´s request, according to the Associated Press. The meeting is significant because Biden represents the moderate, establishment wing of the Democratic Party and is widely expected to be an instant frontrunner if he decides to seek the presidential nomination in 2020. Abrams, by contrast, has run as an unabashed progressive and, because

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez´s "unfavorable" rating has skyrocketed now that she has become more well-known, according to a new poll from left-leaning Gallup. (Video) The poll, released on Friday, found that the increase in Ocasio-Cortez´s "unfavorable" rating in recent months has more than doubled her increase in "favorable ratings." "Half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today," Gallup reported. "But the increased visibility has not improved her overall standing with Americans." In September, Ocasio-Cortez´s "favorable" vs "unfavorable"

On Wednesday, Hollingsworth began cleaning out his cluttered garage to determine if anything had been stolen, police reported. That’s when he found the body of a suspected burglar crushed beneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had apparently toppled onto the stranger, police wrote. “My mind couldn’t comprehend it,” Hollingsworth said, WXIN reported. “This can’t be real. It’s like some strange tale.”

The college admissions cheating scandal that was revealed this week is shaping up to have long-term ramifications for both the parents accused in the scheme and the large world of getting into college. Some of the parents who are accused of cheating to get their children into elite schools are facing civil lawsuits in addition to federal criminal charges. Meanwhile, there is talk in Congress of new laws aimed at cracking down, and the Department of Education is also reviewing the case. Several of the colleges involved have launched their own probes.
