The Illusion of Homeland Security

This CNN report details problems at one of our nations Supermax prisons. Prisons which house the most dangerous terrorist prisoners in the world. One of the problems is lack of personnel to monitor their communications. Maybe they should call the NSA on that one. Over 300 billion spent on the War on Terror in Iraq. Our national reputation scared by support for torture of prisoners of war. Our freedoms threatened at home by the Patriot Act and domestic spying. But a drug dealer can run a major operation out of the most "secure" prison on the planet and terrorist can make phone calls to their friends without monitoring. Not to mention lack of security at our ports and along our border. Is Homeland Security just an illusion? Is it being maintained solely by war in oil rich countries abroad and at the cost of our civil liberties at home? The video is here. And on here.

Revolutionary QOTD: November 14, 2006

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
-Bob Marley.

This is kind of a Revolutionary QOTD replay. I used this quote back here on the anniversary of Bob Marley's death this year. I didn't use the video then. It's classic old-school reggae. Enjoy.

The Youtube Be Down

Youtube is down for maintenance so all my videos won't appear until they are back up. I guess that is the drawback of using Youtube videos. I have no idea how long they will be down or how often they do something like this. There was a notice on the site saying they'd be down at 9pm PST. It's only 8pm PST. Maybe they missed that whole end of Daylight Savings Time thing a couple weeks or so ago. Or maybe the maintenance is done by a bunch of nerds who blazed up a fattie of the ganjah beforehand. Dammit Chad and Steve. You make your 1.8 billion from the Google and do you care about us? The average everyday 'Tubers? Nuh uhnn. I guess if the Google paid me 1.8 billion I wouldn't care about you mofo's either.

I see what the problem be here. Their notice actually says 9pm PDT. That be Pacific Daylight Time. But it ain't Daylight Savings Time no mo. Dudes. Put down the joint and handle yo' bidness. K'?

Update: Just visited da tube and they are officially down now. As evinced by the graphic:

I guess they do be knowin' what time it be.

Update: They're back up and now I can get my tube on.

Revolutionary QOTD: November 12, 2006

Bring Home the Troops - Send in LAPD

I'm probably not the first to say this after looking at this video. Not that the fisasco in Iraq is the fault in any way of the troops or that LAPD could do better, but they are bad ass. I just can't wait for the TV show, Greatest Rodney King Style Police Ass Whuppin's. Or When LAPD Attacks! There must be enough of this kind of footage to put together a special for sweeps week.

In fairness to the LAPD, the guy that they're on top of is probably a punk that I'd want to punch and I'm half a pacifist. And it appears one of the officers is trying to stop his partner. But it's something that shouldn't happen. I stress my fairness to LAPD in this regard because I myself don't want to end up the victim of one of these, as W would put it, thumpin's. Especially not one that ends up on video on the Youtube. Link to the video here.
