No More Aaron Schwartzes

February 28, 2013

Please sign this petition Electronic Frontier Foundation to decriminalize internet usage.  Here is the reform:

  1. No more criminal penalties for violating a website’s fine print
  2. No criminal penalties for circumvention techniques that protect privacy and promote security
  3. Make penalties proportionate to offenses

The tragic death of Aaron Swartz, a 26-year-old coder and social activist, has shone a light on the sad truth about America’s misguided computer crime law. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) has vague language that broadly criminalizes accessing a computer without “authorization,” but doesn’t explain what that actually means. It also contains heavy-handed penalties and shows no regard for whether an act was done to further the public good. Read More

This is a curious video.  It is unusual, lighthearted, sexy but done in part to get attention to the problems of the Putin Administration.  Make of it what you will, Russian girls are the best!!


Why are Whites the only ones who are suppossed to negate their interests

February 4, 2013

The previous entry also takes me to anther point in our society, which is whites are considered to be the only race/ethnicity in our society which is not supposed to even defeat themselves.  Our country is full of organizations such as the NAACP or La Raza, whose sole purpose is to get as much as they can get for their own people.  These groups are not only accepted but generally lauded by the establishment.  However, if anyone were to form a society for the advancement of white people, to defend themselves against institutionalized discrimination (Affirmative Action) for instance, suddenly we would hear the cries of racism and the organization would be shut down.  The same double standard goes for women who have an endless list of feminist and women´s organizations constantly pushing for preferences for women, but the equivalent for men is considered verboten.

The argument justifying preference for certain non-whites is because blacks and Hispanics are on average poorer than whites.  But if we use that argument, then Jews, Indians (from India), Asians, Iranians, etc. should be even more officially discriminated against because their wealth is higher on average than that of whites.  I once heard that the average Jew has 10 times the net wealth of the average white American, and yet Jews do not suffer from extra official discrimination.  The whole argument in favor of Affirmative Action really makes not sense and breaks down when examined, which is why the forces of political correctness have to constantly intimidate people into silence and passively acquiesce towards the party line.  Open debate is the last thing that political correctness, wants so any dissenting opinions must be crushed before they can even be expressed.

On a final note as we happily move towards a multicultural society, and one where whites are the minority, who will keep the country together?  There will be no majority race/ethnicity around which the country can bind.  Instead there will only be a collection of different races/ethnicities, all fighting to increase their share of the pie.  In other words, a nice fractured Balkanized nation.  And when whites become a minority, how will institutionalized discrimination still be justified?, since whites will no longer be the biggest nor the wealthiest group in the nation.

Something to think about.


Black Obama supporters are motivated by race

February 3, 2013

It should be obvious by now that the grand majority of blacks are totally biased in favor of Obama because of his race.  Blacks already tend to be very heavily Democratic, but with Obama leading the party and the country, the support among blacks is almost universal.  Even lifelong Republicans-Colin Powel-have suddenly switched sides and gone for Obama.  Oprah, who never expressed much in the way of political opinions, suddenly is out actively campaigning for Obama.  And on and on it goes.  There is a very tiny minority of blacks are are unhappy with Obama, but it is sliver thin.

The following video shows how blacks automatically support Obama on issues about which they are ignorant on and have not thought thru.  In the video below the enthusiasm for Obama (our black president) shines thru, and so does the ignorance.  At first they support Obama on his global warming policies, but when faced with sacrifices to deal with the problem, the enthusiasm quickly vanishes.

The commentator below agrees.  He says that rank and file blacks could not care less about global warming, but they will suddenly express support for it if Obama does.

The reality is that Obama´s race infuses so much of how people view him.  Yes, some whites did not vote for him, due to his race.  But millions of whites voted for Obama, as a way to try and convince themselves (and others) that they are not racist.  Due to the constant message of political correctness and concomitant white guilt, so many whites have inculcated the idea that as whites they are born with a kind of racism original sin (even if they never did anything), and so the only way to temporarily alleviate these feelings of inadequacy is to make periodic ritual gesture to the gods of political correctness.  One way to show that one is not a racist is to vote for a (half) black man, and to accuse anyone who dares to criticize Obama as a racist, and therefore automatically illegitimate.

On top of the white racism guilt vote, Obama get nearly 100% of the black vote, and a majority of the Hispanic vote as well.  Being dark skinned appeals to many Hispanics, and furthermore he will work to make immigration as open as possible, leading to an eventual Hispanic majority America.  Of course this raises the odd point of why would people go to the trouble of immigrating if they only want to replicate their home country-a place that they are fleeing from-in their new host country.  But maybe that is a topic for another day.

Despite what the left says, I believe that Obama´s race has helped him more than hurt.  A few racists who oppose Obama cannot compete with millions of guilt ridden whites desperate to prove their non racism, as well as virtually the entire black vote, plus millions of darker skinned people (Hispanics, some Asians…) who identify more with Obama due to his skin color.

Petition for Aaron Schwartz

February 1, 2013

Here is an important petition by Electronic Frontier Foundation about reforms to the law so that the Aaron Schwartz tragedy does not have to happen again and we can live in a society that encourages innovation-instead of stifling it.

Reform Draconian Computer Crime Law

The tragic death of Aaron Swartz, a 26-year-old coder and social activist, has shone a light on the sad truth about America’s misguided computer crime law, the breadth of discretion given to overzealous prosecutors, and the unjust results that can occur when these two things work together. For instance, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) has vague language that broadly criminalizes accessing a computer without “authorization,” but doesn’t explain what that actually means. It also contains heavy-handed penalties and shows no regard for whether an act was done to further the public good.

Proposed legislative fixes — like Representative Zoe Lofgren’s “Aaron’s Law” — are encouraging but don’t go far enough. To fix the CFAA, we need to clarify the meaning of “unauthorized” to reflect that commonplace and privacy-protective “circumvention” techniques should not be crimes, and we also need to make penalties proportionate to offenses.

Brilliant, talented, visionary people should be spending their time building our future, not worrying about wasting away in prison. Congress must start by updating the CFAA to ensure the penalties make sense in light of the behavior they’re meant to punish.
