Don’t Bring That Game Around These Parts

If I encountered these losers in my local Exton, Pennsylvania Target store, I’d be inclined to shoot them all preemptively on the assumption that anyone that heavily armed is in the process of going on a killing spree.

Look at the dazed look in these men’s eyes and the way that “Hope for Bacon” clutches his blessed Oreo cookies. These men are not only heavily armed, they are heavily drugged.

Around these parts, real men don’t carry firearms, and certainly not the semi-automatic variety. Which is why I wouldn’t be able to shoot these men in my local Target. I wouldn’t be armed.

Now, I understand that Target has put up signs in some locations asking losers not to bring their long guns into the store, but it’s only a polite request in some of these crazy states because the law says that stores can’t do a damn thing about it. How do you tell the difference between the fools pictured above and an impending armed robbery or spree killing?

I have no fucking clue.

  1. Shoot first and let God sort them out.

  2. Target is a corporation.

    This act of political protest (which Target also requests not happen in or near their stores) would cause reputational damage to the corporation.

    Therefore, assuming that the Target store is in a jurisdiction with stand-your-ground laws, the action is clear: gun down the open-carry activists in an act of corporate self-defense.

Brave!

Three generals, one from the Army, another from the Marines, and a third from the Air Force, were having a debate with a Navy Admiral about whose soldiers were the bravest.

To prove his point, the Air Force general calls over an airman. “Airman! Climb that flagpole, and once you are at the top, sing ‘Wild Blue Yonder’, and then jump off!” “YES SIR!” replies the airman. He takes off for the flagpole like a shot, scales up it, sings the anthem, salutes and jumps off, hitting the ground at attention.

The general dismisses him. “Now that’s bravery!” exclaims the general.

“Ah, that’s nothing” says the Admiral “Seaman!” A seaman appears “YES, SIR!!” “Take this weapon” as he offers him an M14 “Scale that flagpole, balance yourself on top, stand at attention, present arms, and sing ‘Anchors Aweigh.’ Salute each of us, and jump off. “YES SIR!” replies the seaman. He sprints for the flagpole with the weapon high over his head, and completes the task perfectly.

“Now that’s courage!” says the admiral.

“You want courage!?” snorts the Army general. “Get over here, private!” “YES SIR!” replies the private. “Put on full combat gear, load your rucksack with these rocks, scale that flagpole, come to attention, present arms, and sing the National Anthem, salute each of us, and then climb back down, head first”. “YES SIR!!” replies the private, and completes the task.

“Now that is a brave man! Beat that!!” They all look to the Marine. “Private” he says. “YES SIR!” “Put on full combat gear. Put these two dogs in your pack. Using only one hand, climb that flagpole. At the top, sing ‘The Halls of Montezuma’, put your knife in your teeth, and dive off, headfirst”. The private snaps to attention, looks at the general and says “FUCK YOU SIR!”

The general turns to the others and says “Now THAT’S bravery!”

Supreme Court Broadens Hobby Lobby Ruling to All Forms of Birth Control

Posted on July 3rd, 2014 at 17:50 by John Sinteur in category: News

Less than a day after the United States Supreme Court issued its divisive ruling on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, it has already begun to toss aside the supposedly narrow interpretation of the decision. On Tuesday, the Supremes ordered lower courts to rehear any cases where companies had sought to deny coverage for any type of contraception, not just the specific types Hobby Lobby was opposed to.

  1. I’ve told you this before but it’s pertinent:

    A man gets on a bus and sits behind two South Asian fellows who are having a heated discussion.

    “No, no, no!” yells one of the men. “It’s spelled W-H-O-M-M! WHOMM!”

    “You are very wrong, my friend,” shouts the other. “It’s spelled W-O-O-M-B! WOOMB.”

    In the short pause that follows, our hero leans forward.

    “I am sorry to say you are both wrong,” he says politely, “Womb is spelled W-O-M-B.”

    The two men look at each other, confused. One replies, “What would you know? You’ve probably never heard a she-elephant pass wind, much less know how to spell it!”

  2. Just when I thought it was not possible, the US is sinking to new lows on the stupid scale. At the same time, it is reaching new heights on the fanatic scale.

75 years ago, Lou Gehrig — a man who played in 2,130 consecutive games, won six World Series titles, batted a career .340/.447/.632 (and batted .361/.477/.731 in his 34 World Series games) — was only 36 years old and dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

He stood in front of over 61,000 fans in Yankee Stadium and delivered this speech.

Von der NSA als Extremist gebrandmarkt

Posted on July 3rd, 2014 at 13:53 by John Sinteur in category: Privacy, Security

[Quote]:

Ironischerweise sind es nach den speziellen Regeln, die NDR und WDR vorliegen, also ausgerechnet Personen mit dem Wunsch nach Anonymisierung, die zum Ziel der NSA werden. In den Augen des Geheimdienstes: Extremisten. Das ist keine Rhetorik, keine journalistische Zuspitzung. Der Begriff befindet sich sogar in der Kommentarspalte des Quelltexts, notiert von Programmierern der NSA.

Extremisten? Das Gegenteil ist der Fall, wie die Recherchen zeigen. Die deutschen Opfer sind politisch keinesfalls am äußeren Rand zu finden. Extrem sind sie allein in einem Punkt: Sie sind besorgt um die Sicherheit ihrer Daten. Und genau das macht sie in den Augen des US-Geheimdienstes verdächtig.

[..]

Darko Medic, 18, kurze braune Haare, sitzt vor seinem Laptop. Er gibt “Tails” und “USB” in die Maske seiner Suchmaschine ein. Was Darko nicht weiß: Er ist damit gerade ebenfalls in einer Datenbank der NSA gelandet. Markiert als einer der Extremisten, nach denen die Geheimdienstler so fleißig suchen.

Denn was die Regeln des Quellcodes ebenfalls verraten: Die NSA beobachtet im großen Stil die Suchanfragen weltweit – auch in Deutschland. Allein schon die einfache Suche nach Verschlüsselungssoftware wie “Tails” reicht aus, um ins Raster der NSA zu geraten. Die Verbindung der Anfrage mit Suchmaschinen macht verdächtig. Seine Suche nach “Tails” öffnet eine Tür, einen Zugang zu Darko und seiner Welt. Einmal in der Datenbank, kann jede Anfrage von Darko gezielt abgerufen werden. Darko ist unter Beobachtung.

Goldman says client data leaked, wants Google to delete email

Posted on July 3rd, 2014 at 8:27 by John Sinteur in category: News

According to Goldman, the outside contractor had been testing changes to the bank’s internal processes in connection with reporting requirements set forth by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

Goldman said the contractor meant to email her report, which contained the client data, to a “gs.com” account, but instead sent it to a similarly named, unrelated “gmail.com” account.

The bank said it has been unable to retrieve the report or get a response from the Gmail account owner. It said a member of Google’s “incident response team” reported on June 26 that the email cannot be deleted without a court order.

“Emergency relief is necessary to avoid the risk of inflicting a needless and massive privacy violation upon Goldman Sachs’ clients, and to avoid the risk of unnecessary reputational damage to Goldman Sachs,” the bank said.

Testing with production data… so Goldman Sachs employs idiots.

Risk of reputational damage… so Goldman Sachs employs crooks.

I think the damage is already done, although I wouldn’t mind having the report show up on wikileaks.
