FBI: Al Qaeda may strike Chicago mall
Chicago police and the FBI talked about the warning late this afternoon. They said there is no credible evidence there will be an attack. But they did say people should remain vigilant. There are thousands of shopping centers and strip malls in metro Chicago and the Los Angeles southland. Authorities here and there were trying to settle the jitters that residents may have after hearing that al Qaeda reportedly plans a Christmastime attack.
Al Qaeda seeks to destabilize our economy during the holidays.
To late that was already done with sub prime loans. FBI Alert.
Mortgage crisis: risky home loans are coming home to roost
Take Delores King, a 70-year-old Chicago retiree living off a monthly pension of $950. In February 2005, she secured a home loan that cost her $832 a month; by August it had shot up to $1,488. "I've taken out loans before, but this was the worst I've ever encountered," says King, who says her lender didn't fully explain the terms of the loan and how quickly her payments would skyrocket. In danger of losing her home, she's now relying on family and friends to help out. "I don't want this to happen to others."
Of course, adjustable-rate mortgages are common, and many are totally aboveboard. But others, like King's, have short introductory rates and whopping fees that have experts crying foul.
Meanwhile in the West, L.A. terrorist threat discounted.
Torture, Poduct Safety, Mukasey, Pakistan, or Iraq. Which will this distract us from. Remember don't shopping no more. Lets just cancel Christmas to be safe.

This makes Rudy Giuliani look good to the wingnuts. There will now be more support given to him. If you want to take a republican down. Make him look like he is for open government and accountability.
They are looking for another blow hard know nothing who will support the corrupt institution. No matter how badly things they do turn out. No matter how many lives lost. No matter how much money it takes.

There was no mention of politics then. So now when it being done for the sake of one political party it's supposed have some merit. Enough so that you would talk about it as the person saying it has real meaning. When all they are is old wind bags trying start trouble.
People are losing focus here. We are in real trouble. We can't keep falling for petty distractions.

President daily brief saying Bin Laden determined to strike in the US, BAH. Loads of information gathered on American citizens calling back home. Yeah that'll keep us safe.
With over 400 hundred people listed as potential terrorist. with no proof what so ever... oh wait. They have people that they called terrorist without any proof coerced into giving up names.
Will they get to expand on what they already have of our freedoms?
Thursday, September 13, 2007
There is progress. Al Qaeda in Iraq is Al Qaeda.So it is okay that we don't try and catch Bin Laden. Iraqies were not sick of a group calling themselves Al Qaeda in Iraq blowing them up on top of the sectarian violence. The surge worked. It worked so well that the government there got to go on vacation. 35 countries are over there fighting with us.
Families are happy to have somebody die in Iraq. Sacrifices are good. The troops just went to Iraq on their own and the president backs them and hopes you do. If they don't to finish what they started then the terrorist will win.
So we have to just keep on keeping on. Indefinitely.
...Merely Merely Life Is But A Dream...
BTW, whats up with the red live above the MSNBC logo disappearing? Was that a special comment on how all this was said before? I like they way this guy regurgitates the same bull crap he has already flung. And this will give wingnuts and the media reason to still follow along with this un-named plan of whatever he said.
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
Troops are going to stay in Iraq until and after they figure out how to get that oil into their hands. They put a puppet government in place that ain't worth a damn.
They are just positioning themselves so that no blame falls on them for what they are responsible for. And once again the blogosphere is biting done hard on another hook.
This disloyalty seems like a dream come true for them. but why would you trust anything that these people do now. After all the death they ignored now they are supposed to have come to their senses.

4. If you don't believe the Democratic party is redeemable, don't get your hopes up that another party would end up being much better. Any other party would also be subject to the Iron Law of Institutions. It thus would be quickly just as dreadful as the Democrats...unless people put in the same amount of work as would be required to clean out the Democrats' Augean stables.
The Safe Spot
In the face of others deaths, these people shamelessly cling to their power within the institution.

Could have sworn that guy made it clear that mess they made in Iraq would have to worked out by people other than them already.
Yes they vote to give more money to this mess. And yes people will continue to not connect the unnecessary tax cuts and the billions of dollars to Iraq. With the need for states to raise taxes. Bush has sent three companies down the toilette now he is doing the same to the whole damn country. The politicos will go along with it as long as they get to not look bad in the media.

And now what?
The official who disclosed the resignation in advance today said that the turmoil over Mr. Gonzales had made it difficult for him to continue as attorney general. “The unfair treatment that he’s been on the receiving end of has been a distraction for the department,” the official said.
A senior administration official said today that Mr. Gonzales, who was in Washington, had called the president in Crawford, Tex., on Friday to offer his resignation. The president rebuffed the offer, but said the two should talk face to face on Sunday.
Mr. Gonzales and his wife flew to Texas, and over lunch on Sunday the president accepted the resignation with regret, the official said.
On Saturday night Mr. Gonzales was contacted by his press spokesman to ask how the department should respond to inquiries from reporters about rumors of his resignation, and he told the spokesman to deny the reports.
I am sure whomever replaces him will be a really goods distraction. I say he left to join Karl Rove in using the free pass on wiretapping the Demo-idiots gave BushCo. To spy on their political enemies.

That should keep the little bastards busy for a while. This invasion of Iraq and all the problems caused by these unnecessary tax cuts for the rich will go unnoticed hehehehe.
Very small point that will become very big when it should be all these incompetents out of there no later than 2000.

It would be nice if they would spend some time thinking up ways to hihghlight the fact that they don't really care about imagration, social security, environment, gas prices, education, homeland security, al qaeda, .............................

Ala. terror Web site angers activists
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Alabama Department of
Homeland Security has taken down a Web site it operated that included gay rights and anti-war organizations in a list of groups that could include terrorists.
The Web site identified different types of terrorists, and included a list of groups it believed could spawn terrorists. The list also included environmentalists, animal rights advocates and abortion opponents.
The director of the department, Jim Walker, said his agency received a number of calls and e-mails from people who said they felt the site unfairly targeted certain people just because of their beliefs. He said he plans to put the Web site back on the Internet, but will no longer identify specific types of groups.
The site included the groups under a description of what it called "single-issue" terrorists. That group includes people who feel they are trying to create a better world, the Web site said. It said that in some communities, law enforcement officers consider certain single issue groups to be a threat.
"Single-issue extremists often focus on issues that are important to all of us. However, they have no problem crossing the line between legal protest and ... illegal acts, to include even murder, to succeed in their goals," it read.
Walker said the site had been up since spring 2004, and had gotten a relatively small number of hits until it recently became the subject of blogs, he said.

I forgot the one thing the stupid democrats and the much dirty republicans are worried about is, OIL!
Ain't noway we can just leave Iraq without it. So don't be getting your hopes up about an end coming soon. This ain't over until then
How about this alchemy symbol for oil for headstones now. Just tell 'em its wiccan.
Abortionists, gays, lesbians, the ACLU and People for American Way are to blame for his death.
Okay so we sit and wait for the moral majority to tear itself apart over who gets what and who leads them now.

Oh yeah it was referendum on changing how the republicans talked about their pro-invasion stance. Change how they talk about it but, do the same old crap.
But remember if you think that troops dying is a reason to leave. You are just weak on defense.
Let them claim the Iraqis wanting us out as a sign of victory. Let them paint a rosy picture. Show a decrease in violence by ignoring it.
Car bombs and other explosive devices have killed thousands of Iraqis in the past three years, but the administration doesn't include them in the casualty counts it has been citing as evidence that the surge of additional U.S. forces is beginning to defuse tensions between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
Declare bush a hero. Say he did what was best to protect America. Raise a statue to him build a neo con memorial. Give a wealthy corporation millions of tax dollars to build it. Who needs an exact tally of things anyway?
BAGHDAD — The Iraqi government has refused to provide the United Nations with civilian casualty figures for its latest report on the hardships facing Iraqis, the U.N. said Wednesday, but numbers from various ministries indicate that more than 5,500 people died in the Baghdad area alone in the first three months of this year.
And who needs to see it?
Iraq's interior ministry has decided to bar news photographers and camera operators from the scenes of bomb attacks, operations director Brigadier General Abdel Karim Khalaf said on Sunday (local time).
His announcement was the latest in a series of attempts to curtail press coverage of the ongoing conflict, which has already attracted criticism from international human rights bodies.
And no one over in Iraq needs to hear what we back home think about how things are going. But I bet ya the farm that fox noise ain't gonna get blocked.
DENVER - Soldiers serving overseas will lose some of their online links to friends and loved ones back home under a Department of Defense policy that a high-ranking Army official said would take effect Monday.
The Defense Department will begin blocking access "worldwide" to YouTube, MySpace and 11 other popular Web sites on its computers and networks, according to a memo sent Friday by Gen. B.B. Bell, the U.S. Forces Korea commander.
The policy is being implemented to protect information and reduce drag on the department's networks, according to Bell.
But remember your political double speak so when time passes and the real results of the invasion and the war profiteering sink in.
Wait a full year before bringing charges against the republicans. If you haven't noticed these people are really stupid. Eventually they will admit to wrong doings. This time don't let the media play it down. Question their questioning of your investigations.
And when the people cry along with them, despite the fact that the people who were killed are still dead, that it is too harsh to put them in jail for war crimes. Simply wash your hands and walk away.
But this time work on never being fooled again.

The Helvetica font is celebrating its 50th birthday. You've probably seen it a thousand times today. Why?
It is sans serif. There are no wiggly bits at the end of the letters. It has smooth, clean lines, and an unobtrusive geometry that almost suggests it was designed not to stand out.
Lars Mueller is a Helvetica devotee. He has published a book, Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface, and recently donated an original set of lead lettering to a Helvetica exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
"It has a modern attitude which lines up with the aesthetic premises of the 1950s and 60s. Helvetica is a corporate typeface, but on the other hand it's the favourite of hairdressers and kebab shops. It is the butter on the bread."
"It's durable. It comes from natural design forms. It doesn't have an expression of fashion. It has very clear lines and characters, it looks like a very serious typeface," says Frank Wildenberg, managing director of Linotype, the German firm that owns the font.
And not mention easy on the cheaper displays.

But when you attack somebody who has done nothing to you. Thats just wrong. Even more wrong is trying to say fictional characters portrayed in rap are genuine representatives of of an entire skin color.
Imus was fired because he is an old man. There are plenty of others who openly race baiting everyday. They don't get called out it. Sure go after the people who pay these modern day minstrels. And the minstrels themselves because after they get the money. They don't have a good reason to still be doing that shit.
But all we need to do really is wait for them to get old. Sexist, Racist comments are cool but not coming from an old person.

Whats that word for when pussies talk shit like they're up on some hill looking down at all the little people running around acting like children oh never mind.
You know that since they're saying this the Dems will of course, change their ways, in order to look good to the media.
How does 4 years of ill equip troops suddenly become all the Democrats fault because they have withdrawing troops from an invasion that should never have happened talk a funding bill.
Oh and does the constitution really have something in it about check and balances?
Monday, April 23, 2007
Somebody needs to sit the Democrats down and point out to them that can't continue to be so stupid and keep listing to what people who. Back in November came to the White house to receive the latest talking points for during the elections.
And don't forget the lap dog mainstream media.
THE American legal system has rediscovered the virtue of one of the most ancient forms of punishment—public humiliation. Prostitutes' “Johns” can now have their names aired on television. Mail thieves can find themselves wearing a sandwichboard giving full details of their crime. And people who deface Nativity scenes can end up parading through town accompanied by a donkey.
And neoconservatives? These too, it seems, are now being subjected to a grand exercise in public humiliation. Paul Wolfowitz is hanging on to his job at the World Bank by his fingernails (see article). Lewis “Scooter” Libby, a Wolfowitz protégé, is facing prison; Douglas Feith, who worked with Mr Wolfowitz at the Pentagon, is an “untouchable” who is floating around the margins of academia.
As for their patrons, Donald Rumsfeld, Mr Wolfowitz's patron, was sacked from the Pentagon amid accusations that he had lost the Republicans their majority. Dick Cheney is so unpopular that he has provoked protests even at Brigham Young University, a Mormon redoubt which is as conservative as they come. Conrad Black, one of the movement's most generous sugar daddies, is on trial for fraud. It seems that those whom the gods wish to punish they first make neocons.
And neoconservativism is not entirely finished as a political force. George Bush rejected the Baker-Hamilton report on Iraq, which favoured early withdrawal and diplomacy, in favour of the neocon-designed “surge”. Elliott Abrams is a deputy at the National Security Council. Mr Cheney is proving no more destructible than Lord Voldemort. John McCain is blowing loudly on the neocon trumpet; Rudy Giuliani, having flirted with “realists”, has decided to stick with neocon foreign-policy advisers.
But the movement's implosion is nevertheless astonishing. One neocon sums up the prevailing mood in the movement. The neocons are a “laughing stock”. Their “embrace of power” has been “a disaster”. Once upon a time they commanded an audience among Arab democrats and European conservatives. But now they cannot make themselves heard above the din of criticisms of Iraq. The “surge” is a desperate response to failure. Many people see Messrs Kristol and Krauthammer as exhibits in a Ripley's Believe It or Not exhibition: they marvel that they can ever have been so influential, rather than want to follow their advice again.
I kind of get the feeling that when things get really bad, by that I mean when nobody not even the lap dogs will keep spewing talking points anymore. Thats when the Dems will step up and play clean up. Because it is after all so much easier. They wont ever drop down and knuckles up fight to get things right.
Notice how Bush will from time to time point this out.
U.S. Sen. Barack Obama expressed regret late Friday for his 2005 land purchase from now-indicted political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko in a deal that enlarged the senator's yard.
"I consider this a mistake on my part and I regret it," Obama told the Chicago Sun-Times in an exclusive and revealing question-and-answer exchange about the transaction.
Okay the party is so over now. The Sun-Times has nailed the coffin shut on Obama's presidential campaign.

WASHINGTON - Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has hurt the Bush administration and the Justice Department with his poor handling of the firing of eight federal prosecutors, a leading Republican said Sunday.
Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Gonzales was certainly undermining himself and his agency's law enforcement efforts.
Puppets don't cause no harm. Maybe he means that the BushCo. ideology being shown in all its stark nakedness is hurting them. Now all they have is this dumb guy who does what he is told out there trying to explain away what happened. But oh look, they're all dumb guys too. So every time they open their mouths something that they can't prove comes out or, they contradict themselves.
It's funny how its only because he does it sentence to sentence, that his doing it is said to be hurting BushCo.
I didn't notice anybody talking about the graphics on Countdown. They are very much big fans of Tom Tomorrow there. Maybe I'll hook the TV back up to the capture card and snag it.

so maybe the writing was already on the wall and the recent BlackBerry email outages aren't solely to blame, but still, being the proverbial straw to break the camel's back deserves a portion of the censure. While we already knew that most fellas would undoubtedly choose a hot new gizmo over a foxy new lady, this mentality probably changes once you're already committed, and in the case of Rafael Paz, the recent email glitches cost him the latter.

Of all the arrogant ignorance displayed in the past couple of days regarding the Blacksburg Massacre, nothing trumps what John Derbyshire and Nathaniel Blake had to say Tuesday about the alleged passivity and cowardice of students at Virginia Tech.

Every day we twiddle our thumbs, we lose some of the edge when it comes to developing clever ways to use the bandwidth. My simple argument is that what x86 was to the PC era, bandwidth is to the broadband era. The more bandwidth we have, the more innovative ways we will find to use it, thus creating another cycle of innovation.

Judges reject appeals from webcasters
Internet radio broadcasters were dealt a setback Monday when a panel of copyright judges threw out requests to reconsider a ruling that hiked the royalties they must pay to record companies and artists.
A broad group of public and private broadcasters, including radio stations, small startup companies, National Public Radio and major online sites like Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO - news) and Time Warner Inc.'s AOL, had objected to the new royalties set March 2, saying they would force a drastic cutback in services that are now enjoyed by some 50 million people.
Oh right money I forgot how potential money is the same as really having it to them. So they are going squeeze 'em 'til they choke them lifeless. That will show 'em who's the man. And then 50 mill people run over to the favorite DRM music seller and all will live happily ever after

So far nothing has changed. Some things have been discussed out in the open but, thats about it. and even then it gets treated like no big deal. For example the firing and hiring of attorneys to have people who bring charges against your political enemies. Was just "handled wrong".

A coalition of governors and hospital groups says it has the support of nearly two-thirds of the members of Congress to block a Bush administration plan to cut $5 billion in Medicaid funding.
Oneday people will start make the connections between tax cuts and lack of dollars to pay for programs and services. And then instead of welcoming them they will ask, what is this going to cost me.

I couldn't image what I would do if they had dropped bombs and left me in the dark without fresh water. And then went around picking up my family and friends for who knows what reason. Torturing them some times to death.

Hi, I am doing my best to make sure we can read your mail, and listening in on your phone calls. Also I will be trying my best to get rid of anyone who might try to stop the bush administration from being able to do this. But just remember we are trying to get rid of political opposition, its just politics. No need for you to think it criminal that we want such control over your government, OK.
The things we, I do are only wrong and really really bad. And show a lack of any kind of morals... Wait let me tell you my sad life story.
WASHINGTON -- At his lowest moment in the highest law-enforcement office, with criticism pouring in from all sides, including the president who appointed him, Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales made a rare reference last week to his difficult past, speaking defiantly of his determination to weather the controversy over the firing of eight federal prosecutors.
"Let me just say one thing," Gonzales said. "I've overcome a lot of obstacles in my life to become attorney general. I am here not because I give up. I am here because I've learned from my mistakes, because I accept responsibility, and because I'm committed to doing my job."
Remember its all just criticism. Somebody bring me a tissue and can we please stop it with this oversight and accountability nonsense. People might get into trouble if you bring the law into it.
We Were So Poor
House? You were lucky to have a HOUSE! We used to live in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor was missing; we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of FALLING!

AIDS cure or sick joke by African president?
One critic was Fadzai Gwaradzimba, the U.N. envoy to Gambia. She was abruptly kicked out of the country after saying on February 9 that patients should continue their normal treatment and that Jammeh's concoction be "assessed by an international team of experts."
Jammeh, 41, is a former army colonel who has no formal medical training. He wears white robes and carries a copy of the Quran with him in this mostly Muslim nation.
His degree is a high school diploma. But he claims his family has a history of healing people through traditional African medicine.
At the hospital in the capital, patients claim the president's concoction is making a difference to them.
Ousman Sow, 54, said he's been HIV-positive since 1996 and had been taking anti-retrovirals for the past fours years until he volunteered for this program.
Four weeks later, he said he's gained 30 pounds and feels like a new person.
"I am cured at this moment," he said.
Asked if he had any HIV symptoms, he responded, "No, I don't. As I stand before you I can honestly tell you I have ceased to have any HIV symptoms."
Patient after patient gave similar statements to CNN. But it was difficult to verify the authenticity of their testimony. The government claims to have scientific evidence, but it did not provide any to CNN.
Why do people offer fake cures? Maybe people who pull scams have some kind of mental condition that needs to be recognized and treated. Even in the U.S. there are people who would fall such things imagine a country where most of the people have been kept several steps back on the progress stairs. Quackwatch has some tips that should be shared with the world.
Did the last election mean anything? So will you please stop trying criminalize politics.
this is a nice read: Fox News can't take a punch

Viacom in $1 bln copyright suit vs Google, YouTube
Bored? Got nothing better to do? How about trying to kill YouTube. Yeah that is a good idea and makes sense. A lot of people are there when they could be here watching are crap. So if we do something like not improve our crapping offering and post a few clips on our own YouTube channel but instead try sue YouTube out of existence. Well I don't see any downside. Hey anybody who calls people idiots are the real idiots ;)

despite the fact that this stuff he is pulling is a long standing neo-conservative ideology, power centered within the executive branch.
Haliburton takes the money and runsHaliburton Watch.
The company is relocating its corporate headquarters from Houston to Dubai, which the Associated Press points out has some of the world's most liberal tax and residency laws. Haliburton said its moving because of the growth opportunities in the region and analysts say its smart strategically. The company also is eager to jumpstart is stock price which has barely budged over the past year.
Though the stated reasons are financial, there's obviously a political dimension.
The Democrats who control Congress are going to make Haliburton's life miserable. Last month, federal investigators claimed that Halliburton was responsible for $2.7 billion of the $10 billion in contractor waste and overcharging in Iraq, the AP said.
WASHINGTON - Attention owners of primitive TVs: If you still use an antenna to watch "American Idol," your picture will disappear at midnight on Feb. 17, 2009, unless you buy something called a digital converter box.
No one knows how much these boxes, which have yet to be produced, will cost. But the government will help you pay for them, at least until the money runs out.
The reason millions of TVs will be rendered obsolete is a government mandate for broadcasters to convert their signals from old-style analog to new-style digital.
The agency responsible for overseeing distribution of the converter boxes, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, explained Monday how the program is supposed to work.
Every household, regardless of whether it needs a box, will be eligible to receive two coupons worth $40 each that can be used to buy two converter boxes. The coupons must be requested between Jan. 1, 2008 and March 31, 2009.
Congress, in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, set aside $1.5 billion to pay for the coupon program. Initially, $990 million will be used to pay for coupons and cover administrative costs, which are capped at $110 million.
So a set brand called Sansui I saw its 32" for $249.99 at a grocery store. It's digital and until widescreen HD sets drop to that price, thats gonna be my new TV. A 40 dollar coupon means they are planning on charging a ton of money for a converter box. We have digital cable in which you still need a digital set to view some channels...
But that's our government at work at its best. Helping those corporations out like that. I don't know why they don't just skip the coupon and give them the money directly.
And the media try to make him look good.
Cheney puts 'anti-war' Dems on defensive
With those showdowns nearing, Cheney tried to put Democrats on the defensive.
"When members speak not of victory but of time limits, deadlines and other arbitrary measures, they are telling the enemy simply to watch the clock and wait us out," Cheney said in a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Invade a country under false pretense and anybody who hears what you have to say makes it seem sane that you are trying get a win out of a horrific situation. Oh my look at cheney standing so tall against the Democratic Party. What a man. Not like its hard to that anyway.
Maybe it is time for another non binding toothless resolution. Yeah Dem's, as the other side collapses under the weight of their own absurd hubris. Just hang back and wait for media to give the proper narrative. And try and come off for change but against the narrative. Despite the voters wishes that brought them to polls. You don't to against how things are being spun now do they...

Then later all this coming together started and now I find myself with AT&T Yahoo DSL.
SAN FRANCISCO - Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO - news)'s recently resurgent stock retreated by more than 5 percent Friday amid fears that a setback in a lucrative partnership with AT&T Inc. will undercut the anticipated gains from an overhaul of the Web portal's advertising platform.And my RSS feeds don't work no more. And most that I added with the my yahoo button wouldn't updated when I first added them. So I have stopped using the my.yahoo.com page as a portal.
The sell-off was triggered by an unconfirmed report in The Wall Street Journal that AT&T wants to stop giving Yahoo a slice of the subscriber fees from a 6-year-old co-branding agreement to sell Internet access in most of the country.
If AT&T gets its way, Yahoo would have to be satisfied with whatever money it could make by selling its own online products, such as digital music or matchmaking services, to subscribers of the joint service.
And the yahoo 360 blog well I think they decided to let you post videos but too little too late. And that whole get rid of the adult chat rooms from groups. And not being able to even search for adult groups. Ya know sometimes adult just means adult peer group. But really they need come undone.
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The high-flying Advanced Micro Devices Inc. of 2006 has given way to a company in financial peril, saddled with debt and bleeding from a brutal price battle with its larger and suddenly resurgent Silicon Valley archrival, Intel Corp.It took me forever to have a reason to move up from my 400mhz. So I will wait until I get one real cheap...
Though the price competition has cut into both chip makers' profits, Wall Street has punished AMD's stock particularly hard. Its shares have plunged more than 60 percent over the past year on fears about the company's ability to continue gaining share without hurting profit margins. Meanwhile, Intel's stock is down just 4 percent.
TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE - news). is removing a chip from the European version of its new PlayStation 3 (PS3) game console, a move that cuts costs but means users cannot play some of their old games.
I don't get that. Its not like there was reason for a new game system in the first place. And you cost cutting measure is to take away backwards compatibility for games that are not that old.

NEW YORK - The view of ground zero just got a little smaller. The agency that oversaw the redesign of the World Trade Center site on Thursday stopped posting on its Web site hourly images from a camera pointed at ground zero.
Reduced traffic on the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. Web site, at http://www.renewnyc.com, didn't justify the cost of hourly photo updates, said A.J. Carter, a spokesman for the Empire State Development Corp., the LMDC's parent corporation. The agency still plans to post pictures of progress at ground zero from time to time.
I don't want to know what they was paying for that webcam. Not when a web hosting and webcam32 cost like nothing.

Harvey vendor records missing
Despite numerous search efforts conducted by a team of Harvey staffers, private attorneys and even the mayor, many vendor payment records totaling thousands of dollars still are missing, a city official testified, prompting a government watchdog to wonder why the city's record-keeping is such a mess.
A handful of outside "forensic people" removed two computers last week from Harvey City Hall, human resources director Roberta Lyles testified in a civil deposition Tuesday as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by The Star's sister newspaper the Daily Southtown against the city.
Attorneys defending the city against the lawsuit hired "an outside forensic analyst to assist this firm in our analysis and investigation of these issues," Clifford Kosoff said.
Kosoff declined to name the independent analysis firm, citing an attorney-client privilege, but called it a "credible, well-respected forensic firm."
Misappropriation of funds and hiring people to defend their actions. The city will soon be in so much debt that they will give up and run out.
A Harvey police officer found guilty of falsifying a police report was fired last week by the city's civil service commission.
But officer Alex Gbur, who had worked with the department's canine, continued to insist the real reason he lost his job was because he's backing a political opponent of Mayor Eric Kellogg in the April 17 mayoral race.
Gbur -- a supporter of mayoral candidate Marion Beck -- was suspended without pay in October when he was accused of trying to cover up $2,000 in damage to his police car. At a commission hearing last month, he was found guilty of lying about backing into a fire hydrant outside his Thornton residence.
Mayoral hopefuls promise change
Each Harvey mayoral candidate had his or her own way of handling the pulpit, zoning in on one of dozens of people last weekend at a Harvey church.
Each touted their visions for new streets, more jobs and safer neighborhoods.
But the five hopefuls donning their Sunday best at First Wesley Academy United Methodist Church on Saturday had a common mission: To take the reigns of Harvey and dissolve what they see as a corrupt administration.
Better marketing to recruit businesses to the city is what Harvey needs, said Dantzler, chairman of the city's finance committee. That starts with making sure people are safe and letting residents know what's going on in their community.
Yes, we need to give businesses a reason to want to come here. 154th street from the Metra platform to all the way west to Dixie Hwy. That used to be the downtown. There is the Metra stop and the paacebus terminal to take advantage of. maybe someday someone will.
Sources tell the Southtown: Mayor Kellogg made gun vanish
Harvey Mayor Eric J. Kellogg ordered one of his detectives to make a gun seized from a convicted felon vanish from evidence, authorities said Friday in the latest scandal to plague Harvey police and the first to finger the mayor in potentially criminal behavior.
By 2015 we will finally be a clean city.

whitewaterstainondressgate allover again. Is it just as bad as war profiteering during a invasion that you lied to get the country to back you into doing leaving thousands of people dead? Yes.
It looks really bad when the butler leaves first.

As the communal bloodshed has worsened, some Iraqis have set up advice websites to help others avoid the death squads.
One tip - on the Iraq League site, one of the best known - is for people to draw up maps of their local area using Google Earth's detailed imagery of Baghdad so they can work out escape routes and routes to block.
For some time now, vigilante-style guard forces have been operating in many neighbourhoods, especially in Sunni areas targeted by Shia militias.
Many Sunnis see the Shia-dominated police forces as just as much of a threat, because of evidence of their involvement in kidnappings.
So part of the job of the local guards is keeping them out.
Quietly google will soon take over the world. I mean way to totally indispensable eh?

No one in the media will say it. And no Democrat will say anything about it either. Then they would have to talk about sending troops to defend Afghanistan. And Republicans and the media will question this going after the real enemy as though it's the same as BushCo. going after made up enemies. Instead of talking about how if you don't rebuild the country then you end up marginalizing the terror groups. Otherwise you give them a reason for being.
BuchCo. proves itself good for the Al qaeda. And nobody will make this point because it sounds to much like... Oh look faux news has a comedy news show. Oh the yucks, YUCK!

Hey look at me over here I am going to evade Iran! Yeah, that's right I am going to Iran so you don't have time investigate me. Or talk about how all of us lied about the reason we invaded Iraq. Hey hey, I am distracting you from doing the job you were elected to do. Hey, polls what polls?
I have decided we should stay the course in Iraq. If you oppose that then you want to cut funding for the troops that we sent in without proper equipment. And we pretty much refuse to fully equip. Still want to try and talk about it? You are hurting the troops! Huh huh, does that get ya?
Everyone will continue to let the crooks and liars and the lapdog media set the tone and frame work for discussion and that's that.

Nobody even paid attention to the why the right leaning liberal local media talked everyday about a friend of the Governors being in trouble with the law. With nothing new to report they just reported on that everyday. And after the election and Topinka's loss, nothing.
Now you have a presidential race coming in a few very very very long moths ahead. And just like in IL the GOP's credibility is so recked by their own actions. And they don't really care response to all calamity they are causing. Has left them with a field of people who are trying to make it seem like if they just keep a positive mind. It will all work out some time or another.
Howard Slams Obama on Iraq PolicyHaving Obama and Hillary in the race is good for one thing. Attacking the GOP and the lapdog media on their stupid ass backwards thinking. If nobody talks about their pandering to lowest common demonator thinking. And Expose and reject every effort by the GOP to set the framework and tone of discussion. Then it will be a waste. Republicans are out of things right now. There is no need to tip toe around. The U.S. voted out the ones were up for reelection last time. And the others will get the boot the next time around. If people would stop listening to people trying spread doubt.
Australian Prime Minister John Howard, who will face his own re-election bid later this year, said Obama's proposed deadline would spell disaster for the Middle East.
"I think that will just encourage those who want to completely destabilize and destroy Iraq, and create chaos and a victory for the terrorists to hang on and hope for an Obama victory," Howard said on Nine Network television.

How the Democrats can win everything in 2008. Tell the rubes anything as long as it is stupid and plays un-founded un-formed fears. Give then praise for acting without much thought. And encourage people who have never done a lick of something to act as though they are the authority on that something.

Mayor calls situation 'outrageous'
But Coakley, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and others said the statement offering an apology was not enough, and did not rule out criminal charges or a civil suit to recover the estimated hundreds of thousands of dollars it cost the city to respond to the bomb scares.
Menino told reporters he received a call from a Turner spokesperson about 9 p.m. but had not yet returned it. "I think the city deserves a call, not from a press person, but from somebody in the corporate structure of Turner," he said.
"I just think this is outrageous, what they've done ... It's all about corporate greed."
Outrageous is right. Now the terrorists know how stupid we are that we can't even tell the difference from something that had been around for two weeks and a "terror threat". And we have to always think of these impressionable little terrorists everyday as we contemplate our daily actions. If we don't stand strong against unreal enemies together the real enemies will see an advantage. And then what? A promotion for Ghost Rider turns into a real bomb... at the box office.
Well there goes my dream now that they are on to us.
Hoping to stop lawyers from adopting Irish names to run for judge, Gov. Blagojevich has signed a bill requiring candidates who have changed their names within three years before running to have a "formerly known as" under their name.
The law excuses candidates who changed their names due to marriage, divorce or adoption.
State Rep. John Fritchey IV (D-Chicago) proposed the change after the Sun-Times revealed that attorney Frederick S. Rhine changed his name to "Patrick M. O'Brien" to run for judge.
He followed in a long line of attorneys who adopted their mothers' maiden names or just adopted an Irish name such as "Fitzgerald" to run even though they had not a drop of Irish blood.
Rhine changed his name in October 2005 but in the end did not run as O'Brien in 2006 judicial elections.
I had no idea people pulled such a stunt. This will make the next ballots look a lot more messy.

HARVEY, Ill. -- State and Cook County officials have raided the police department of south suburban Harvey, armed with a subpoena to confiscate certain records.
The Illinois State Police Public Integrity Unit, Cook County sheriff's police and Cook County state's attorney's office participated in Wednesday's raid, authorities said. Officials did not specify what they confiscated.
By 2014 this will be a clean city.

Through The Streets?
A substitute teacher from Connecticut is facing up to 40 years in prison because her malware-riddled computer displayed porno popups in class.
On October 19, 2004, Julie Amero arrived at Kelly Middle School to teach a 7th grade language arts class. Mr. Matthew Nett, the class's regular teacher, logged Amero into the classroom computer and left, warning her not to turn the machine off.
Amero let the students surf the web for a few minutes. The kids visited several innocuous sites including an innocent-looking page on hair styles. Suddenly, pornographic popups started to fill the screen. Soon, the machine was frozen in an endless porn loop.
Nobody in that classroom clicked on any porn that day. The popups were generated automatically by a piece of malicious code from the hair site.
Anybody who has a computer and actually uses it. And surfs the web at all with it knows about this. There is no way in FUCK you can be on the internet let alone have a job as a prosecutor. And most likely have a computer that at some point somebody who maintains it for your dumb ass would have upgraded it. And more than likely explained to him why.
It is impossible to think it some innocent on the people of Norwich law inforsement and the jury to come to such a conclusion. All of the last year it made the news every time you needed to upgrade your windows OS because of some exploit or another.
The lie that stands out is she would have to physically click the porn links. Um no, the web is like only 1% porn. Money is made off of terrestrial rather than cyberspace related porn. What pop ups are is impression advertising. Money is made on the number of IP addresses that come to a page. malware is used to redirect your browser to ad sites all the time. It is just that with porn promoters there is no sense of restrain. Period.
The vulnerability lies in the way IE 6 handles certain graphics. Malicious software can be loaded, unbeknownst to the user, onto a vulnerable Windows PC when the user clicks on a malicious link on a Web site or an e-mail message, several security companies said.
"Fully patched Internet Explorer browsers are vulnerable," Ken Dunham, director of the rapid response team at VeriSign's iDefense, said in an e-mailed statement. "This new zero-day attack is trivial to reproduce and has great potential for widespread Web-based attacks in the near future."
Security-monitoring companies Secunia and the French Security Incident Response Team have given the issue their most serious ratings.
Shady adult Web sites are among the first to exploit the IE vulnerability, Eric Sites, vice president of research and development at spyware specialist Sunbelt Software, wrote on a corporate blog. In one case, a malicious Web site used the exploit to install "epic loads of adware," according to Sunbelt.
Microsoft plans to fix the flaw as part of its monthly patching cycle on Oct. 10, the software giant said in a security advisory. The update might be released sooner, "depending on customer needs," Microsoft said. Typically, Microsoft only breaks its patch cycle when attacks are widespread.
There is noway this prosecutor could not just simply Google malware and find out everything he said was wrong.
Spyware used to worm its way into PCs when users tried to download a free utility, such as a screen saver, and wound up with an unexpected bonus after agreeing to the distributor's license agreement.
Today most spyware infiltrations follow a different course: Users browsing the Web unknowingly launch "drive-by" downloads as they peruse sites affiliated with spyware makers. What those spyware-dumping sites often have in common is pornographic content.
That school needs to have it's computers upgraded... to new ones with spyware and pop up blocker. And I think David Smith, the prosecutor, should be made to not only foot the bill but be there to help the tech' who installs them so he can learn something. Or just drag him and the jury through the streets of Norwich... Ignorance of computer tech is no excuse. Especially when in your job you my be called on to help go after some computer hijacker instead your dumb ass is prosecuting an hijackee.

And after, people will jump on the ridiculous and BushCo. will act as though they are being attacked. While trying to do the best they can with all these people around them making so many mistakes.
