Doom Has Entered The Farce Stage

What, you thought we had reached that? Oh no. Look at this:

Incredible, isn’t it, how they can conjure money out of nowhere for the Brotherhood of Nation-States and Oligarchs and demand austerity of us people!

Europe’s debt crisis prompts central banks to provide dollar liquidity

The “dangerous new phase” — like the threat of terrorism — will always be with us.

No shortage of fear-mongering. Just a shortage of duty to we citizens!

The first three words of the Declaration of Independence were “We the people” — not “Bleed the people.”

The Sleepers Awaken

Fuck. You. Money.

So where is all the money?

Remember that asshole in high school, that guy who had a trust fund and drove a brand new Mustang (before Mustangs got cool again)? The guy who didn’t even pay attention to politics because he was too busy getting invited to parties with other rich kids? That guy has your money. Now he works for a financial institution or HMO making more money in a year than you’ll see in a decade. He buys off the politicians. He outsources jobs. He gets the inheritance of the billionaire who left all his money to his daughter.

He is money, and you are not.

Thank god.

Fuck that kind of money. Do you think Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google to become that guy? Hell no! They are Gen X. THEY are US. We have more potential between our ears than the people in power could ever dream of. Because they are vampires. Just look at Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor. Vampires. Fuck those guys, and everything they stand for.

Now, if we can get several million more people to think just like that, there’d be some real hope for the future.

Google Book Search Suit Update

Discussions continue in Google Books lawsuit, attorneys say

Based on comments made at the hearing, it appears that more progress has been made with the publishers than with the authors. It’s possible that Google will strike a deal with publishers and then litigate with authors.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Divide and conquer.

Sony’s Interactive TV Patent

I was doing some research and tripped across this patent from Sony: Gateway screen for interactive television

There have been on and off rumors of Apple doing a TV. If so, Apple might run smack into this patent and get sued by Sony.

So, this post for future reference.
