Viewpoint: The Privacy Pirates: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance

This is a class action suit I can get behind.

Sue every user of my personal marketing data for recompense. If Google can pay bloggers via clicks, then people can get paid everytime our data is sold.

Pennies per use are better than nothing per use.

"Corporate America defines our personal information as their business asset."

It did not buy this asset. In fact, it likely took it after I purchased a product from them. In essence, I paid them for it?

Is global warming to blame for all these recent storms?:

A very welcome article from my local daily, The Journal News, which most times is regurgitating whatever position the Left is currently taking.

I love the ending quote.

"Things like decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels have to be defended on their own terms,' he said. 'Man is terribly bad at forecasting and doing things in advance. But we're very good at adapting. Ever since we invented the umbrella, we've shown we can deal with weather.'"

DenverPost.com - Immigration at forefront

Because we live in a society that has done everything possibloe to reverse the sticks-and-stones adage into "Names may break my bones but sticks and stones can't hurt me,"
politicans ignore illegal immigration at their own peril.

It is a principles issues - resistant to semantic twistering.

By far, one of the funniest bloggers.

Reading the comments is hilarious as the lefties who are satirized demonstrate that one man's satire is another one's reality.

Administration Prods Congress to Curb the Rights of Detainees - New York Times

Why does this quote not surprise me?

"The earlier statement [on granting Geneva Convention protections to terrorists]had been widely interpreted as a retreat, but testimony to Congress by administration lawyers on Wednesday made clear that the picture was more complicated."

A little premature schadenfreude?

NYC Building Collapses After Blast, Fire - New York Times

Scary. I am sure every person within ear distance of the explosion though, "Another terrorist!"

I know my brother thought that despite being out of hearing range.

He called me on my cell recalling that immediately after 9/11, the networks were so busy that no calls could get through.

Thank God the source appears benign.

I wonder if this wakes up the Far Left in NYC and reminds them there are more important societal concerns than unlimited abortions and gay marriage.

Delaware Senator Joe Biden continued to exhibit the Democrats' hypocrisy when it comes to policing speech. (Some could say "freedom of speech" but that is another discussion.)

1st, John Kerry refers to Sikhs as terrorists during the 2004 campaign. (How about those real terrorists in Iraq?)

Then, Senator Hilary Clinton refers to Mahatma Gandhi as a gas station owner. (Gandhi?!?!?!)

Apparently, Indian Americans and Indian immigrants are OK targets for Democrats. Where is the outrage over stereotypes? The condemnation? The torches and pitchforks demanding someone's livelihood for such vial speech?

Maybe working hard and not actively trying to become an "oppressed" special interest group disqualifies Indian Americans from the "aegis" of the Democrats obvious faux outrage.

Republican Congressional candidate, Raj Peter Bhakta (Yes, that Raj of The Apprentice fame.) has correctly pointed out this hypocrisy and the mainstream media's complicit role.

Succinctly, he says, "Can you imagine if a Republican had made a comment like this? They'd be drummed out of their leadership position, if not the Senate altogether by the roarfrom The New York Times."

Torches and pitchforks.

Iraq War Dominates Lieberman-Lamont Debate - New York Times

I am still stunned that the internet fools want to rid the Democrat party of Joe Lieberman.

What the party neeeds is more politicians and candidates like him- not fewer.

And if there were more like Lieberman, the political discourse would be more civil, and we'd be able to work towards common goals.

Unfortunately, the internet fools do not seem to understand that.

N.Y. Court Rejects Attempt to Recognize Gay Marriage - New York Times

Wow! If the the New York Supreme Court won't redefine marriage in a state where opposition to redefintion would be shouted down with the latest verbal weapons, "Intolerant!" "Racist!"

(What? "Racist?" Sure radicals always work that into any invective-laden argument.)

I'm having a hard time reconciling the fact that, a few years ago, homosexuals only wanted "civil unions" in order to obtain privileges like hospital visitation rights and employee healthcare benefits and the such with the demand for "marriage".

Given that the percent of the population that is gay is in the low single digits, anything advancing their agenda is out of the norm by definition.

And I am leery of the radicals within that sliver of the population and where the next "incremental" change occurs once traditional marriage is destroyed.
