amero.jpg image The ‘Amero’ -- fact or fiction? Sonya Rehman via quin, Wednesday, Feb 4 2009, 9:24am
Word has it that the US Dollar is soon to be replaced by the ‘Amero’. Is this just another conspiracy theory kicked up by a bunch of bored conspiracy theorists?

Who knows, but at the rate the US economy finds itself sinking further into a quicksand recession, the introduction of the Amero might just turn out to be a reality. (story and 2 comments and 2 images)

text Why Bailing Out Banks Doesn't Work Shamus Cooke via reed, Thursday, Jan 22 2009, 6:14pm
The New York Times recently posed an excellent question: “Why save banks if they won’t lend?” (January 19, 2009)

Before the first $350 billion “installment” of the bailout, we were told that the money was needed to “unfreeze” the credit markets, meaning that banks would again be willing to lend businesses the money they needed to continue doing business.

Despite hugely popular opposition, the bailout proceeded, and absolutely nothing changed.

Obama image Silver Lining: musings from the hacker elite! Kismo, Friday, Jan 16 2009, 8:49pm
Every ‘dark cloud’ has a silver lining and Obama is no exception. The first thing to learn about victory is NEVER LOSE HEART! So what, if Obama is proving to be the greatest traitor and betrayer since Benedict Arnold; the American Revolution survived Arnold, gained momentum and forged onward to FINAL VICTORY. How much easier to overcome a slick, TRANSPARENT, no-conscience, carpetbagger like Obama? Too bloody easy, mate! (story and 1 image)

text Merry fuckin' Christmas yarra, Wednesday, Dec 24 2008, 10:59pm
Everything once considered sacred in Western society -- the free market is God -- is falling apart in the most dramatic and public manner. All excuses based on ignorance evaporated with your jobs, savings and homes. Excuses based on a lack of information, knowledge or PROOF are all INVALID after Cheney CONFIRMED on national television that he is a war criminal and torturer! Almost all your leaders have been exposed as puppets, buffoons and/or mass murderers – the pillars of your society proved to be made of chalk. Everything you have been taught as Truth has been exposed as LIES – it’s all coming down as I write; a $50 billion fraud here and there is nothing compared to a $700 billion bailout that blew out to $8.5 trillion in weeks – I can hardly contain my laughter – you pathetic, spineless, turds!

text "Armageddon" Prices Fail to Lure Buyers Amid Selling Pierre Paulden and Caroline Salas via reed, Monday, Oct 20 2008, 11:07pm
Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Credit markets have fallen so far that they are providing a "once in a lifetime opportunity,'' and investors are still selling. Prices of loans rated below investment grade declined to a record low 66.1 cents on the dollar, virtually guaranteeing investors get their money back, based on historical recovery rates, according to data compiled by Standard & Poor's. Yields on corporate bonds show investors expect 5.6 percent of the market to go bust, the highest default rate since the Great Depression, according to Christopher Garman, chief executive officer of debt research firm Garman Research LLC in Orinda, California.

gascar2.jpg image R.I.P free market (laissez-faire) Capitalism dev/null, Monday, Sep 8 2008, 2:10am
Some stories do not require pages of elaboration; the event speaks clearer and louder than any journo could hope to ‘pen.’ Today the U.S. government was forced to bail out the ‘competitive, individual, free market, laissez-faire,’ CAPITALIST SYSTEM, which until now was considered second only to God! The USA and its ideological backbone is broken, as has been so painfully demonstrated by one of the largest scale government financial interventions in history – well done Milton Friedman!

text Quiet, please! Ursula Sautter and Mary Pinkowish via quill, Tuesday, Jul 15 2008, 10:44am
A leaf blower, snow blower, lawn mower and two huge dogs—Peter D’Epiro can describe in excruciating detail how his neighbour’s lawn equipment and pets ruined summer afternoons and dinner parties for him and his wife for more than a decade in Ridgewood, New Jersey. But he’d rather not. “I can barely think about that situation without rushing for the Valium or the IV gin drip,” he says.

text Nature signals calamity! Mollie Matteson via rialator, Monday, Apr 28 2008, 8:57pm
[First the honey bees now the bats -- is anyone listening to the most important alarms? Ed.]

BATS have been dying by the thousands recently in the Northeastern United States. No one knows why, and it may be months, perhaps years, before the cause is determined. Meanwhile, scientists predict that this summer there will be a population explosion of insects, which bats normally eat in large quantities. Greater numbers of beetles and moths could mean severe and costly losses for farmers and timber producers. There could also be bigger swarms of mosquitoes and other biting bugs, which will mean more discomfort for all of us.

text Digital underbelly of the World Kismo, Sunday, Mar 9 2008, 10:15am
The crews laugh at times at the lack of expertise displayed by western government agencies in the area of IT security. The Internet belongs to those with the greatest level of skill and there is no shortage of it ‘out there’ – crews, teams and individuals -- but sadly very little real talent ‘in there,’ moronic government agencies and corporations. No real hacker could tolerate an office/fixed environment for more then a day or so! It is the nature of the beast and the environment in which it lives.

One thing Microsoft founder Bill Gates can’t be accused of is sloth. He was already programming at 14, founded Microsoft at age 20 while still a student at Harvard. By 1995 he had been listed by Forbes as the world’s richest man from being the largest shareholder in his Microsoft, a company which his relentless drive built into a de facto monopoly in software systems for personal computers.

code2.jpg image Hacks and ‘bots’ – very old news Kismo, Thursday, Nov 29 2007, 2:09pm
The FBI and other mental leper agencies have finally become aware of a very old hacking method (15 years would be close) of harnessing and mining info from private computers – good work dimwits, in relative terms 15 years in IT equals about 75 years in other industries! Kiddie hackers have been accruing ‘bots’ (short for robot) slave machines (zombies) for years, usually for childish pursuits like attacking each other’s systems (DDoS attacks) hacker wars, as they are known. Our servers were subjected to one of these mindless attacks 15 years ago – easily circumvented with professional expertise, which ‘intelligence’ and ‘security’ agencies lack, I might add!
