The Obama Cult of Personality Marches On

The video below is just another great video from The Naked Emperor.

I originally found it on Hot Air in an entry by Ed Morrissey.

The Obama cult of personality marches on.

One bright and shining Obama cult member thought it would be a good idea to list on her public Obama page, the names, addresses and phone number of those she had recruited.

New Government Entity

Here a Trillion, there a Trillion, print a Trillion, every where a Trillion.

By the time Obama and  Geithner are finished we will all speak of a Trillion in the same way we currently speak of a Billion.

My Way News

The Obama administration’s latest attempt to tackle the banking crisis and get loans flowing to families and businesses will create a new government entity, the Public-Private Investment Program, to help purchase as much as $1 trillion in toxic assets on banks’ books. […]

A key part of that regulatory framework will give the government new resolution authority to take over troubled institutions that would pose a threat to the entire financial system if they failed. […]

According to administration and industry officials, the toxic asset program will have three major parts:

_A public-private partnership to back private investors’ purchases of bad assets, with government support coming from the $700 billion bailout fund. The government would match private investors dollar for dollar and share any profits equally.

_Expansion of a recently launched Fed program that provides loans for investors to buy securities backed by consumer debt as a way to increase the availability of auto loans, student loans and credit card debt. Under Geithner’s plan for the toxic assets, that $1 trillion program would be expanded to support purchases of toxic assets.

_Use of the FDIC, which insures bank deposits, to support purchases of toxic assets, tapping into this agency’s expertise in closing down failed banks and disposing of bad assets.

Yeah… this should work.

 

Sandboxie, Better Than Anti-Virus?

I found an application called Sandboxie and am so far, during this trial period, very impressed with it.

Tired of dealing with rogue software, spyware and malware?

Spent too many hours removing unsolicited software?

Worried about clicking unfamiliar Web links?

Sandboxie runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.

I’ve put it to the test by downloading the eicar anti-virus test file to my desktop. My Bitdefender Anti-virus found it right away but I told Bitdefender to ignore the file.

The virus file was totally contained within sandboxie and never made it to my actual desktop. I can view it through the sandboxie interface but if I go to my desktop where I told it to download to, it is not present.

In that sense, it is like being able to release a disease and not having to worry about it contaminating the populace.

If I choose later that I did wish to keep whatever I downloaded it is simple to move it from the sandbox to my actual system.  If I choose not to keep whatever I downloaded, I simply quickly clean the sandbox.

What better way to test programs you download that you are unsure of?

If I am not being clear as to the advantages of this program I’ll try to better explain.

As you browse the web changes are being made to your computer, from the small and relatively harmless changes such as retention of URLs for the purposes of auto complete to the destructive such as undetected installation of malware.

Sandboxie tracks all changes and locates them in a isolated folder called “the sandbox”. You lose no browser features by running your browser in a sandbox session and protect you PC at the same time.

DRUDGE REPORT 2009®_1237771090810

Notice the hash marks (#) in the title bar of my browser, that is how you know you are running your browser in the sandbox.

If there are changes that you wish to keep from your browsing session you may choose to do so. If you are wanting to download and test some shareware or freeware, this is the safest way in which to do it.

No changes will be made to you computer, all changes are contained only within the sandbox.

You can run your email program and all other programs in the sandbox as well.

In the end this will mean a system that continues to run at optimum with no changes that you, yourself do not specifically permit being made to your system.

Sandboxie can be downloaded as a thirty day trial. After the thirty days you may purchase it at a lifetime cost of 22 Euros (about 30 USD) or keep it as “nagware” without paying.

I’m still in my trial period so I don’t know how much “nagging” is involved if you opt to keep it without paying.

Download it, take the tutorial and at least use it during the thirty days.

I would suggest a known clean system before installation, after all what is the point of keeping a crappy system running crappy?

One bad thing, sandboxie is only for 32bit systems.

So, is it better than anti-virus.

So far I’d be inclined to say yes, but I doubt I’d pitch my anti-virus in favor of it. Rather, I believe they will compliment each other nicely and add an extra layer of very good protection.

Pelosi Calls Illegal Aliens “Very, Very Patriotic”

House speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told illegal aliens that the are “very, very  patriotic” and states that immigration raids against illegal aliens is un-American.

This woman clearly does not have the best interest of the United States of America at heart.

You Might Be A Militia Member If…

There is a document online titled MIAC Strategic Reported, The Modern Militia Movement. It is dated February 2nd of this year on is reportedly a document from the state of Missouri Information Analysis Center and Missouri State Highway Patrol.

I first heard about this on the Glenn Beck radio show if you have access to his podcast it is hour 2 for 3.19.09.

Kansas City Star

A new document meant to help Missouri law enforcement agencies identify militia members or domestic terrorists has drawn criticism for some of the warning signs mentioned.

The Feb. 20 report called "The Modern Militia Movement" mentions such red flags as political bumper stickers for third-party candidates, such as U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, who ran for president last year; talk of conspiracy theories, such as the plan for a superhighway linking Canada to Mexico; and possession of subversive literature. […]

But state law enforcement officials said the report is being misinterpreted. […]

"All this is an educational thing," Hotz said of the report. "Troopers have been shot by members of groups, so it’s our job to let law enforcement officers know what the trends are in the modern militia movement."

I’m sure Lt. Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol is genuinely concerned for his fellow troopers. The problem, to me, isn’t that law enforcement profiles, it is some of the persons and organizations profiled.

Some identify “markers” of a potential Militia member are:

  • Those who are against the Ammunition Accountability Act. Basically the act would require an serial number be engraved upon all ammunition.
  • Those who anticipate the economic collapse of the US government. Given our current economic situations, I imagine many persons believe that there could be an economic collapse.
  • Those who worry a Constitutional Convention could take place and result in the repeal of the 1st and 2nd amendment. A Con Con would allow for the alteration of the United States Constitution either by adding to or removing from the constitution. There has been a move towards a Con Con for sometime, if it ever took place then it is possible that any amendment could be removed.
  • Those who are concerned about the possibility of a North American Union or a New World Order. I believe both a NAU and a NWO are real possibilities. I have read many news articles over the past year in which various world leaders have either called for a NWO or suggested that one might be needed. Gordon Brown has pushed the idea several times. I understand of course that how he defines a NWO and how I define one may differ greatly.
  • Those who are concerned about a Universal Service Program.
  • Tax resistors.
  • Militant Abortion. By this they mean militant pro-lifers. The documents speaks strictly about those pro-lifers who “take up arms”. Having had been active in the pro-life movement for years, I assure you that the police consider those who take up placards to also be militant pro-lifers. 
  • Those who use short wave radio for communication purposes.
  • Committees of Safety. Organizations established to lobby government officials and confront corruption.
  • Those against the Federal Reserve.
  • Members of 3rd parties. Specifically mentioned are supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr.
  • Anti-government propaganda. Those who display pictures, cartoons, bumper stickers that contain anti-government rhetoric.
  • Those who are anti-immigration. Very broad term. I am anti-illegal immigration and think our government has not simply dropped the ball, but dropped it and kicked it over the fence. I am not anti-legal immigration.

The above just a sampling from the document. Many of the persons mentioned in the document likely should be considered dangerous, but much of the document describes everyday normal Americans.

So remember, if any of the above bullet points describe you, you may be considered by the state of Missouri as a threat.
