Wednesday links

  • Panera Bread becomes the latest to give away data on millions of customers. Yet another unencrypted database. Yet another company that ignored warnings. Do these big corps hire actual IT professionals?
  • Jim Bovard on yet another round of FBI fails and the trial of Noor Salman.
  • Leave it to Not-So-Great Britain: 78-year-old man is arrested FOR MURDER after stabbing one of two home invaders to death with a screwdriver. Ban screwdrivers! 6 Comments
  • You know, whatever else you can say about David Hogg …

    He makes terrific meme material. With the help of readers, we’re doing a meme blast to help kick off Basics of Resistance. Joel (with inspiration from T.L. Free) made these two of that obnoxious 17-year old progressive fascist who suddenly considers himself a major national figure: If you’ve got a blog, FB page, Twitter or Gab account (or whatever), grab these and let ’em loose on the ‘Net. —– The other day Joel also posted this scarily natural Hogg video to the Cabal. Eerie, isn’t it, how easily Hogg falls into that role? YouTube has marked the video as “offensive”…


    Friday links

  • If I’d have had time to post yesterday (sorry), this would have been at the top of my list: YouTube shows its colors (again) by banning a range of gun-related videos. (Tip o’ hat to DB and others)
  • Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump or Cambridge Analytica, is gaslighting America.
  • Yeah, and Cambridge Analytica is a red herring. Money quote from the Obama camp: “Facebook was ‘very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.’” 11 Comments
  • Thursday links

  • “Blood unicorn” Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes are charged with fraud. Good article.
  • Somebody needs to take this video of Hillary and score it with “Hail to the Chief” to remind us how we lucked out.
  • United Airlines does the mean and stupid again. This time a dog dies. (If even I know the rules about carrying dogs in the passenger cabin, how come a United flight attendant doesn’t?) 14 Comments
  • Thursday links

  • Daylight saving time returns on Sunday. Be sure to &^%$#ing uselessly adjust your ^%*(_&%#ing clocks again. Sigh. But what if DST were in effect all year?
  • A teacher in (no surprise) New Jersey is suspended from his job for advocating arming school staff. One precious snowflake was so upset she had to be escorted from the classroom.
  • The DoJ is finally handing over those Fast & Furious documents after years of Obama-era stonewalling. 7 Comments
