Happy Independence Day

Well, we have the press bias on the Martin case, the press bias on a woman who is a celebrity because she wants babies dismembered because they might live, a government that has a low grade persecution of church related groups because they won't fund abortion pills, a Supreme court that ignores biology and sociology to proclaim anyone who disagrees with them is because they are a bigot, a government who spies on everyone and a google that collects your private data, and a president who is telling Africans they don't need airconditioners.

Almost makes you wonder who is spying at you via your webcam when you get on line every morning...

So let's go to the tech blogs for relief...or maybe not.

From ZDNET: from David Gewirtz

Celebrating independence in a land that spies on its citizens

As we come to this Fourth of July, some citizens are up in arms over what some might call another "long train of abuses and usurpations," as it was originally written in the Declaration. I'm speaking, of course, about the NSA/PRISM stink.
 Dear Mr. President: now might not be the best time to say you were pawing through records of my email addresses
After spending weeks reading about the NSA mess, getting a note from the President's fundraising team telling me they were looking at records associated with my email address just raised the hairs on the back of my neck.

DNetGovWeek: another week, another NSA leak, paranoid fraidy cats, and gov around the world

So here we are, another week gone by in NSA leak land. Are you suffering from NSA weariness? We have more NSA coverage, some brutal words about a nation of fraidy cats, and lots of gov news from across the ponds.

uh, maybe we should target/profile folks?

In medicine, the rule is "If you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras".

But political correctness means we have to treat everyone the same, so 80 year old Filipino World War II vets get frisked at the airports...
