The Crisis Of Credit

I meant to post this over a week ago but just left the bookmark on my desktop. Here’s a great visualization of the current credit crisis. Simplifying something and having it still make coherent sense and still stay true to the real story is nothing short of an art. This one is a real work […]

V-Chip 2.0?

According to CNet: The Senate Commerce Committee approved legislation Thursday asking the Federal Communications Commission to oversee the development of a super V-chip that could screen content on everything from cell phones to the Internet. The article omits the fact that it’s 99.99997% sure to fail and the committee knows that. Taking a look at […]

Frank Zappa’s Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing Testimony

This video is priceless. A must see. You can hear everyone laughing in the background. Not to mention he was being very rational about the whole thing and poking holes in the proposed law.

As an American you should be informed about who is financing who. Says a lot. Look at maps too. And pass that on. Sooner America stops being stupid […]

He’s not even dead yet

He’s not even dead yet, and were going through his mail. Kind of sad how people take advantage. The man’s still living (though not in a great state of mind sadly), and we are discussing his paper trail and intimate letters. Some people push it to far.
