Stop. Watching. Us.

AntiNSA

They’re smart enough to create the world’s most formidable surveillance apparatus.

But too goddammed stupid to understand why the Constitution of their own country was created.

A Line Has Been Crossed

Forced Exposure ~pj

You’ll find all the laws in the US related to privacy and surveillance there. Not that anyone seems to follow any laws that get in their way these days. Or if they find they need a law to make conduct lawful, they just write a new law or reinterpret an old one and keep on going. That’s not the rule of law as I understood the term.

Bold and redfacing added by me.

Our Founding Malcontents

Ages of Revolution: How Old Were They on July 4, 1776?

It’s a simple question — perhaps so basic that it’s been overlooked. How old were the key participants of the American Revolution? And not just the Founding Fathers. Authors often reveal the age of a soldier, politician or other main character in books about the American Revolution, but I always find myself wondering about their peers at the same time.

That’s a question I had several months ago and I couldn’t find such a list. Now the list exists.

I’ll no longer refer to them as our Founding “Fathers.” That makes them seem sedate.

They were malcontents. They would not submit to the way things were. They hated the way things were. They risked death rather than submit. There’s nothing at all “fatherly” about that.

They were malcontents. And as malcontents they drafted a legal document that would protect other malcontents: The U.S. Constitution.

You owe your freedom to people who complained. Remember that the next time you dare open your yap about others who complain.

If you can’t see anything to complain about, you’re not aware, not alive.

Two brave women. I don’t know if they’re alone at night too. I didn’t ask.

Restore The Fourth

Join the largest online protest since SOPA to stop NSA spying

The facts are clear: the NSA has turned the Internet into a massive surveillance system. They’re using the websites we love to track our every move. On July 4th, people are protesting in more than 100 cities across the U.S. The Internet Defense League and more than 30,000 websites will join the protest. Will you?

Occupy Wall Street: All Gone

All photos taken today, Monday May 6, 2013. Photos resized and resampled to VGA; click any to enlarge.

I haven’t been to the city since a few days after Supertstorm Sandy. And being off Twitter has kept me out of the Occupy loop.

Still, today was surprising, if not discouraging.

Even though the Wall Street Bull has barricades around it, people can freely get next to it and there was no longer any NYPD present.
