Hiding in plain sight

In this age of ‘Big Data’ the masters are the ones who hide in plain sight. If you generate billions of media bits that must be parsed by the powers that be, the devil really is in the details. During a stint in a fraud unit I learned that the trick wasn’t to read all […]

Skype security, and privacy

Communications and privacy will always be a concern, any protocol a computer can generate can be broken, the question is how long, and how important. If your ego about your importance in the world is justified by others, then expect them to be listening. You can only slow them down. For the rest of us, […]

Underground War – Whistle Blowers strike back.

I may be the last to see this, a war, underground and undeclared, but a war. The opponents are a bit undefined but there is a clear and escalating combat in the world. I’m not talking about Terrorists, (although the establishment who is under assault may declare their attackers as such) I am talking about […]

Religious ‘Tight Ass’

I was reminded of this ‘West Wing’ after all the bull shit about the Mosque near the World Trade Center And tried, as I might, to remember that the United States was founded on the constitutionally guaranteed right of Freedom of Religion. Who knew?

Internet Privacy myths

One of the enduring myths of the internet is the one involving privacy. This article on CNN titled U.S. enables Chinese hacking of Google takes umbrage at the notion that everyones email is secret and private. And while this myth might comfort many, the truth is that email was NEVER private. Every email host, every […]

Fear and Loathing in the U.S.

I found this on the @SarahPalin_Blog and it reads in the discription; The continuing story of a moose hunting, hockey Mom who may become leader of the free world. And I find this disturbing and frightening on so many levels, however after thinking about it for a bit it could never happen. For if Ms. […]

A great article on the Amercan Future (GOP) Fascist future.

Nothing is more convincing than a logical and well documented description of the Path to Fascism Fascist in America, are we there yet? Everyday I’m glad I don’t live there anymore. It’s a shame that the GOP has chosen to commit Treason against the American Constitution and actively seek to institute a Fascist overthrow of […]

The Guise of truth

Israel lost the last war with Hezbollah and I Blogged about it here when I wrote that Israel loses the War on Terror and it looks like the Israeli government has learned to change their propaganda to alter perceptions but are we trusting what we see?. Can we recognize a YouTube campaign when we see […]

Indian violence in Mumbai is a guise

This article Behind the Mumbai Massacre: India’s Muslims in Crisis pretends that the Muslim outcry of violence is over Indian mistreatment of Muslims. Then why the targeting of Americans, and British? Something does not ring true here. This is a guise for something more, a threat of Jehad with a mask of righteous religious zeal? […]

The wounded (GOP) animal is very dangerous

With the Presidential contest going down the tubes for the Republican (GOP) party, and the potential to lose majority, and even filibuster control of both houses of Congress. The GOP is coming off as a wounded animal and wounded animals are very dangerous. They can attack Iran, swing to radical right and declare independance from […]

Data mining Terrorism

I have been, and will continue to be amused about the Storm over Big Brother database. Amused because I know ultimately that it will fail to stop terrorism, but also that I know how easily such a system can be overwhelmed into oblivion. The only reason for these databases is for political control, not for […]

Demonization of the Iran

The Demonization of Iran has begun in this article Silent no more I believe that we will be seeing many more of these types of there articles from ‘conservative’ GOP publications in a deliberate attempt to justify an attack on Iran. Some of these ‘exclusive’ stories will be true, but many more of these, including […]
