Ruminations of the Easily Amused for July 17 2013

I did some painting on the porch yesterday. I've already done one coating in semi-gloss on the porch floor, which looks pretty good and easy to clean, decided to do the trim around the door and windows. Looks good but NOW the stain on the walls themselves looks shabby. Dang. Now I'm going to get some stain, paint the walls, then do one more coat on the trim, then put the second coat on the floor. At some point it will be DONE but at least I'm making some progress.

Jesus has returned. Oh.. You didn't know?

This.. .is... Just... Cute

Maybe it's not YOU being looked at by the NSA but you're still likely being tracked

Think of it this way. Let's say the government suspects you are a terrorist and it has access to your Facebook account. If you're an American citizen, it can't do that currently (with certain exceptions)—but for the sake of argument. So all of your friends, that's one hop. Your friends' friends, whether you know them or not—two hops. Your friends' friends' friends, whoever they happen to be, are that third hop. That's a massive group of people that the NSA apparently considers fair game.

For a sense of scale, researchers at the University of Milan found in 2011 that everyone on the Internet was, on average, 4.74 steps away from anyone else. The NSA explores relationships up to three of those steps. (See our conversation with the ACLU's Alex Abdo on this.)

This is kind of hilarious

I know I talked abou this San Antonio school and their misbegotten idea to force all the students to wear an RFID badge.  One young girl filed a 666 style lawsuit about it. Well, they're over it.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — After a drawn-out battle waged in court and within the community, school officials with the Northside Independent School District have announced their decision to stop using a student tracking program that relied on RFID tracking badges containing tiny chips that produce a radio signal, enabling school officials to track students’ location on school property. According to school officials, the decision to cease the “Student Locator Project” was due in part to low participation rates, negative publicity, and a lawsuit by The Rutherford Institute. Rutherford Institute attorneys had filed suit against school officials in November 2012 on behalf of Andrea Hernandez, a sophomore at John Jay High School’s Science and Engineering Academy, who was expelled from the magnet school in January 2013 after objecting to the badges based on religious freedom and privacy concerns. The question of whether Hernandez will be permitted to return to John Jay has yet to be resolved.

“This decision by Texas school officials to end the student locator program is proof that change is possible if Americans care enough to take a stand and make their discontent heard,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State. “As Andrea Hernandez and her family showed, the best way to ensure that your government officials hear you is by never giving up, never backing down, and never remaining silent—even when things seem hopeless.”

 
 

And your laugh about Ted Nugent O Day-George Zimmerman

Rhode Island Governor vetoes Choose Life license plate

In his veto message, Chafee wrote: “This bill compels the state to collect and distribute funds to an organization that advocates a particular religious and political viewpoint. It is my belief that state participation in the transmission of funds to this organization would violate the separation of church and state, one of the fundamental principles upon which our state was founded.

ESPECIALLY Rhode Island, the state of Roger Williams, who, as a Baptist believed in separation of church and state.

The 10 top legal fights over abortion in the US

AND a ruling today in Wisconsin

A federal judge has refused to lift a temporary stay on a crucial section of a new Wisconsin abortion law.

The language requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

I'm enjoying this Leah Remini Scientology flap. I mean, how do you keep someone hidden for years? A little rude language.
