The Digital Box Debate

I've mentioned this before, but the whole digital cable box thing is really starting to ruffle my feathers.
ABC's article today on the government requirement to switch over to digital signals by 2009 mentions the part that of all of this that I find the most infuriating. Just like they did before with the analog spectrum, it looks like the government is going to auction it off again.

What's not often said is that much of the signal spectrum will be auctioned off to wireless and broadband companies that want to provide ever fancier phone and Internet services. That auction is expected to bring $10 billion or more to the U.S. Treasury.

Is everyone else ok with the government auctioning off the airwaves? They've done it before. Maybe I'll get my own station this time.

Hooooooray! "Intelligent" Design SHOT DOWN

Articles are all over the place and I only just saw the news today... so ashamed of myself.
Wikipedia has a good summary of the whole bidness and if you've got insomnia, it links out to the entire 139 page ruling

"Breathtaking inanity" is how U.S. District Judge John Jones characterized the Dover, PA school board's attempt to cast doubt on the theory of evolution—but in fairness, the recently ousted members of that board were relative unsophisticates, snookered by the intellectual scam that calls itself "intelligent design," or ID.
From quotes I've seen so far, sounds like the Judge saw through the veil put up by the Discovery Institute that ID is just short for Creationism.
"The citizens of the Dover area were poorly served by the members of the board who voted for the ID Policy," the judge wrote in a 139-page opinion, following a six-week trial. "It is ironic that several of these individuals, who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public, would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the ID Policy."
In his ruling the judge indicated that he too was aware of what lay behind the move to teach ID. "We find that the secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board's real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom," he said.
From The Independent
Anticipating that his decision would come under attack from the religious right, the judge, who was appointed by President George Bush, was careful to state that he was not an activist judge, but dealing with proceedings provoked by the actions of the school district. The judge wrote that "intelligent design" was a religious notion that advances Christianity, and so was in violation of constitutional provisions against the establishment of religion.
"The evidence at trial demonstrates that 'intelligent design' is nothing less than the progeny of creationism," Judge Jones wrote.
From The Guardian
Discvory institute fools fight back with brilliant statements like:
"Judge Jones got on his soapbox to offer his own views of science, religion and evolution," John West, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, said in a news release. "He makes it clear that he wants his place in history as the judge who issued a definitive decision about intelligent design. This is an activist judge who has delusions of grandeur.

Weekends are good.... Here comes one.
Dans Le News...
Everybody knew that Bush and Co. were all about prying into our affairs, but now all the politicians in Washington are pretending to be Up in Arms today after the story by the New York Times on Bush's allowing the NSA domestic spying priveleges. I mean, duh. Everyone knew this was going on. I'm just glad that someone finally found proof. Brilliant!

Congressional leaders of both parties called for hearings and issued condemnations yesterday in the wake of reports that President Bush signed a secret order in 2002 allowing the National Security Agency to spy on hundreds of U.S. citizens and other residents without court-approved warrants.
Bush declined to discuss the domestic eavesdropping program in a television interview, but he joined his aides in saying that the government acted lawfully and did not intrude on citizens' rights.
The existence of the NSA domestic surveillance program was reported late Thursday by the New York Times and confirmed by U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials.
The Washington Post, citing an informed U.S. official, reported that the NSA's warrantless monitoring of U.S. subjects began before Bush's order was issued in early 2002 and included electronic and physical surveillance carried out by other military intelligence agencies assigned to the task.

I wonder where bush would have stood if the NSA wanted to spy on corporations. They've got all the same rights as people, right? Somehow I think his money-lovin' ass wouldn't have held them to task. C'est la vie.
And a big hooray to the government for stalling the Patriot Act renewal. Bless their pork-barrelling little hearts. The article in the NYT even cites the NYT article on NSA spying as having a possible influence on why the act was stalled. Sweet! Who said liberal rags couldn't get a few things done.
The Senate on Friday blocked reauthorization of the broad antiterrorism bill known as the USA Patriot Act, pushing Congress into a game of brinksmanship with President Bush, who has said the nation will be left vulnerable to attack if the measure is not quickly renewed.
With many Democrats and some Republicans saying the bill does not go far enough in protecting civil liberties, the Republican leadership fell short of the 60 votes required to break a filibuster. Now the future of the law, which greatly expanded the government's surveillance and investigative powers in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, is in doubt.
The debate, a passionate fight about the balance between national security and personal privacy, became a touchstone for repercussions after the disclosure on Thursday night that Mr. Bush had secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for terrorist activity.
On Friday afternoon, after the report in The New York Times and the fallout it engendered, Vice President Dick Cheney made a hurried trip to the Capitol to defend the domestic spying program against charges that it might be illegal, while Mr. Bush said he would do everything in his power within the law to protect the country from another terrorist attack.

Worked all day.
Watched Control Room, a documentary on the Al Jazeera television network during the leadup and "mission accomplished" periods of the current Iraq War. This is the second time that I've seen it and I highly recommend it.
I haven't done a lick of Christmas shopping and will pay for it dearly this weekend.
In the news...
Bush remains an idiot... I just picked the first story I found and picked a quote... ridiculous.

When one woman asked about how many Iraqis have died since the March 2003 invasion, Mr. Bush did what the Pentagon has been reluctant to do. He offered numbers. "I would say 30,000, more or less, have died as a result of the initial incursion and the ongoing violence against Iraqis. We have lost about 2,140 of our own troops in Iraq.

The US decides that killing people is wrong and to prove it, they kill the founder of the Crips and it takes 12 minutes for them to find a vein. Fox news' "reporter's notebook" on the story is an interesting read as well. I'm not saying that he was innocent, I'm just saying that I totally disagree with killing people to teach a lesson about how wrong it is to kill people. The death penalty has proved itself as being a shitty deterrent and is more expensive than life in prison. If it's vengeance that people want, consider life in prison dealing with all of its many horrible
Everyone but the US agrees that global warming exists, but that won't stop polar bears from becoming extinct when their habitat melts. The US' response? Protect Polar Bears and then drill up the Alaskan Wildlife Refuge.
I also ran across this adorable (and seemingly right-wing) news outlet called, Hilarious. Watch for quotes from the Heritage Foundation and easy references to "liberals". Unfortunately for them, I'm going to use their powers for my own benefit by repeating this story:

Conservatives Urged to Avoid Progressive Insurance

( - A conservative advocacy group is urging its supporters to cancel their policies with Progressive Insurance, after Peter Lewis, the company's chairman, reportedly gave $8.5 million to the American Civil Liberties Union. The multi-million dollar donation will help the ACLU advance its liberal agenda, including its "war on Christmas," the American Family Association warned. In an email message, AFA Founder and Chairman Don Wildmon urged his supporters to "sign a letter to Chairman Lewis, letting him know" that his donation to the ACLU is prompting conservatives to cancel their insurance policies. The AFA recently announced that it was ending its boycott of Target stores, after the retailer promised to use the word "Christmas" in its advertising and in-store promotions.

All of you, get out there and switch to Progressive right now! Pay double your premiums just for fun! Don't report any accidents, even if they're far over your deductible. The more money we give these people, the richer that Lewis fellow gets and the more money the ACLU gets to get out there and fight for all the stuff I think is important. Face, CNS News!
I'm not sure how much of a real source CNS news is, especially given that one of their facts in the "fact-o-rama" section comes from wikipedia. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of the Wiki, but they've definitely come under heavy fire lately for some libelous lies that were entered.
Ok, that's it for me.

I've really been slacking on the blog lately. I'd like to blame my new job for some of it, but really have to confess that it's mostly due to the recent arrival of two of the "Lost" DVDs from Netflix and the borrowing of two others from a friend. My office holiday party (whoa was it lame) and watching ten episodes of Lost occupied most of my time from Thursday through Sunday night.
I was at work until 8:30 on Friday and then Rose and I went out with two other couples to the Melting Pot and then out to Dragonfly for a single drink before cabbing home.
Saturday night was the office party. The room ended up being too big for the small crowd that was present and a lot of people ended up ditching to go to the party next door for Price Waterhouse Coopers.
Bush decides that he's only killed 30,000 iraqi civilians, does not makes "omelet/egg-breaking" reference.
Frist is a liar, what's new?
Kos or somewhere points to a good graphics in the Washington Post showing How Abramoff Spread the Wealth (right). What the graphic really shows is that all politicians accept bribes, no matter what the party.

The Inalienable Right to a Remote

In his Op-Ed today, "The Inalienable Right to a Remote", George Will argues against the new senate bill that reserves $3 million to help the US convert over to digital television by 2009, arguing that American's have a sense of entitlement that needs to be quelled.

Feeling, evidently, flush with (other people's) cash, the Senate has concocted a novel way to spend $3 billion: create a new entitlement. The Senate has passed -- and so has the House, with differences -- an entitlement to digital television.
What oil is to Saudi Arabia -- a defining abundance -- cognitive dissonance is to America. Americans are currently in a Founding Fathers literary festival. They are making bestsellers out of many biographies of the statesmen who formulated America's philosophy of individualism and self-reliance and who embodied that philosophy -- or thought they did -- in a constitutional architecture of limited government. Yet Americans have such an entitlement mentality, they seem to think that every pleasure -- e.g., digital television -- should be a collective right, meaning a federally funded entitlement. Clearly, Americans' civic religion of reverence for the Founders is, like most religions, more avowed than constraining.

I disagree. This isn't a case of American's thinking they're entitled. From everyone that I've mentioned this to, republicans and democrats, libertarians and Satan, no one thinks that this is a worthwhile way to spend money. This is nothing more than a gift for the cable and satellite companies. Who's going to make money off of installing set-top boxes? Why am I paying for this?

Windows Live Local competes with Google Local by launching a bird's eye view feature.
This should really count as a theft of intellectual property, as far as I'm concerned. It's the exact same thing. Oh well.

Sugar Over Substance or Selling Our Kids' Health

This article on not-so-nutritional school lunch programs that feature Yoo-Hoo, pre-made sandwiches in a bag and the sugar water that is Sunny-D exposes one of those fun little arguments over when it's ok to make money that I hadn't really thought of before. Silly socialists, if your kids are going to pony up $1.89 for french fries every day, the school district will make $500,000 to pay for the books that the government stopped giving you because the students are slow and can't pass the tests dictated by No Child Left Behind! Doesn't it all make perfect sense?
De L'article:

As government support has decreased, school food service programs face increasing pressure to be profitable -- a tall order when school lunches across the country cost an average of $1.54 in elementary schools and $1.77 in high schools.
A la carte offerings help do that. For instance, if Howard County adopts Maryland's new nutrition standards [which ban a la carte items with more than 9 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat and 15 grams of sugar], it will lose about $1.8 million in a la carte sales. In Arlington, the system makes $1.23 million a year from regular school lunches and $836,434 from a la carte sales.
"I'm not going to tell you that if we don't sell Yoo-hoo, we're bankrupt," [Dietitian Sandra] O'Connor said. But when adding up revenue, she said, "it does have a drastic effect."
Last year, when Arlington's secondary schools went from selling french fries a la carte every day to offering them three days a week, the system lost $150,000 in annual revenue.

Sad. We're selling our kids health. More so than usual.


Reframing the Question?

Wow. Two Female Suicide Bombers Kill 27 in Iraq
Not to downplay the fact that so many people were killed, but I thought the most insane part of the article was this:

On Monday, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld acknowledged that the insurgency has been stronger than anticipated, but he also said the news media have focused on the war's growing body count rather than progress that has been achieved.
"To be responsible, one needs to stop defining success in
Iraq as the absence of terrorist attacks," Rumsfeld said in remarks at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

I'm sorry. I thought that terrorist attacks were bad. Apparently, Rumsfeld would rather define success as "lack of an electrical grid or functional economy... despite terrorist attacks, but plenty of carpetbaggers and loads of war profiteering."
The insurgency is stronger than we anticipated... please stop reporting on it.
Please don't look at the burning car. Instead, check out these functional cars! There's loads of them! How about this new tactical weaponry? Isn't it shiny?
Sounds like Rumsfeld would rather see the kind of news you have to pay for.


What HUBRIS this administration has to kill people all over the world in the name of "protecting 'merica from evil-doers" and then not follow through with the recommendations of the 9/11 panel. I don't seem to remember anything political about the 9/11 panel's recommendations... that probably means that implementing them wouldn't get anyone any votes. It's either that, or that they've found some way to politicize or argue over how to implement the recomendations... Either way, I feel so much safer now! Iraqi terrorists are blowing up hotels in Jordan... that never happened before, did it? Iraqis are blowing up their own police force... that never happened before, did it? Thanks for the infighting!

U.S. Is Given Failing Grades By 9/11 Panel
The federal government received failing and mediocre grades yesterday from the former Sept. 11 commission, whose members said in a final report that the Bush administration and Congress have balked at enacting numerous reforms that could save American lives and prevent another terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
The 10-member bipartisan panel...issued a "report card" that included 5 F's, 12 D's and two "incompletes" in categories including airline passenger screening and improving first responders' communication system. nearly half the categories, the government merited a D, an F or an incomplete grade, according to the report card. Kean and other commission members said at a news conference in Washington that all the goals should be achievable, but that many have languished amid political skirmishing and bureaucratic turf battles.
"None of this is rocket science," said John F. Lehman (R), a Navy secretary in the Reagan administration. "None of it is in the 'too hard' category."

Open Letter to Netflix

Dear Netflix,
Hi! I love your service! I brag about it to people and am a complete convert from the normal way of renting movies. I even opted out of the class action letter that came around because I didn't want to be part of a group that hated on Netflix.
But: I recently told a friend who also uses Netflix, "I never watched the show 'Lost' and I think I'm going to start watching it. I'm going to get the first season on Netflix."
I proceeded to put the first season of Lost in my queue, moved it to the top and began waiting anxiously.
The next day, my friend told me that she too had added 'Lost' to her Netflix Queue.
Two weeks ago, she received the first Disc of 'Lost', enjoyed it thoroughly and then started to tell me about secret plot twists, big dogs running around and other spoilers.
I can't blame Netflix entirely for my having found out this information before seeing the show, but I must hold you partially responsible as I really should have received the disc first.
My friend lives a block away, so I don't imagine that she received the disc first because of her location.
I have yet to receive the first disc of "Lost". I understand that you only have so many copies of a movie and that a "Long Wait" does not denote any specific unit of time for which I'll have to wait. I'm a little disappointed, but I understand.
My suggestions (finally) is that you stick to a first-come, first-serve basis. I can only assume that your databases are set up to do this anyway, so maybe there's a problem with my account that's conflicting with my renting "Lost". What gives?
Thank you for your attention to this matter and please contact me if you have any questions or would like to read aloud the scripts for any of the episodes.

Europe won't pick fight with Rice on CIA tactics - Yahoo! News

Thoughts on torture, anyone? I thought we'd decided that torture didn't work. I thought we'd decided that this would all only come back to haunt us. The bright side to all of this? We don't torture people, because it's illegal. Bush said so. Therefore it must be true. Praise be.
Europe won't pick fight with Rice on CIA tactics - Yahoo! News
Allegations that the United States has committed abuses in Europe while waging its "war on terror" will cloud this week's visit by Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice, but her hosts have little appetite for forcing the issue with Washington.
European officials seem satisfied, for now, that the United States has promised a formal response to press reports the
CIA ran secret jails in Eastern Europe and covertly flew terrorist suspects through airports and bases across the continent.

Today's News

Explosive Developments By Telis Demos in Slate
The roundup points to some other interesting tidbits:

  • The Post (a little late) has a story about The US Military is paying Iraqi papers to publish certain stories.
    The U.S. military command in Baghdad acknowledged for the first time yesterday that it has paid Iraqi newspapers to carry positive news about U.S. efforts in Iraq, but officials characterized the payments as part of a legitimate campaign to counter insurgents' misinformation.

  • Also in the post, FEMA Pulls Out of Lower Ninth after receiving threats of violence.
    The Lower Ninth Ward was reopened Thursday; it was the last neighborhood in the city to remain closed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Residents, who had been limited to bus tours, were allowed to reenter homes, inspect damage and retrieve items but not stay in the area, which still lacks electricity.
    But U.S. Army Corps of Engineers workers near levees and FEMA workers -- who were on hand to help remove debris, set up disaster service centers and coordinate relief -- received numerous threats, said FEMA spokeswoman Nicol Andrews .

  • And the article Corrupt Intentions in Slate discusses Cunningham and corruption at high levels.
    Like medieval scholastics counting the angels on the head of a pin, Justice Department lawyers are struggling with the question of when favors to and from a member of Congress or a congressional aide take on the metaphysical quality of a corrupt bribe. The brazenness of the DeLay-Abramoff circle has caused prosecutors to look past traditional distinctions, such as that between campaign contributions and cash or other favors to a politician personally. Or the distinction between doing what a lobbyist wants after he has taken you to Scotland to play golf, and promising to do what he wants before he takes you to Scotland to play golf.

    Something to think about...

    Does the free market neccesitate socially conservative policies?

    Sent via blackBerry wireless handheld.


    Chuck Norris (quite amusing)

    This was forwarded to me. It's crass, but highly amusing. If you don't know who Chuck Norris is, you won't get it. You also probably don't know a lot of other things.

    Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
    Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

    Rather than being birthed like a normal child, Chuck Norris instead decided
    to punch his way out of his mother's womb. Shortly thereafter he grew a

    Chuck Norris had his own version of Punk'd. Only In his version, he would
    walk around and roundhouse Kick people in the throats.

    A man once asked Chuck Norris if his real name is "Charles". Chuck Norris
    did not respond, he simply stared at him until he exploded.

    Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, until Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked
    her into a glacier.

    The original theme song to the Transformers was actually "Chuck Norris--more
    than meets the eye, Chuck Norris--robot in disguise," and starred Chuck
    Norris as a Texas Ranger who defended the earth from drug-dealing
    Decepticons and could turn into a pick-up. This was far too much awesome for
    a single show, however, so it was divided.

    Chuck Norris was the fourth Wiseman. He brought baby Jesus the gift of
    "beard". Jesus wore it proudly to his dying day. The other Wisemen, jealous
    of Jesus'
    obvious gift favoritism, used their combined influence to have Chuck omitted
    from the Bible. Shortly after all three died of roundhouse kick related

    Chuck Norris's girlfriend once asked him how much wood a woodchuck could
    chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. He then shouted, "HOW DARE YOU RHYME
    IN THE PRESENCE OF CHUCK NORRIS!" and ripped out her throat.

    Holding his girlfriend's bloody throat in his hand he bellowed, "Don't FUCK
    with Chuck!" Two years and five months later he realized the irony of this
    statement and laughed so hard that anyone within a hundred mile radius of
    the blast went deaf.

    Chuck Norris recently had the idea to sell his urine as a canned beverage.
    We know this beverage as Red Bull.

    Chuck Norris built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK
    assassination. As Oswald shot, Chuck met all three bullets with his beard,
    deflecting them. JFK's head exploded out of sheer amazement.

    To prove it isn't that big of a deal to beat cancer.
    Chuck Norris smoked 15 cartons of cigarettes a day for
    2 years and aquired 7 different kinds of cancer only to rid them from his
    body by flexing for 30 minutes.

    Beat that, Lance Armstrong.

    Chuck Norris once shot a German plane down with his finger, by yelling,

    Chuck Norris can make a woman climax by simply pointing at her and saying

    When Chuck Norris's wife burned the turkey one Thanksgiving, Chuck said,
    "Don't worry about it honey," and went into his backyard. He came back five
    minutes later with a live turkey, ate it whole, and when he threw it up a
    few seconds later it was fully cooked and came with cranberry sauce. When
    his wife asked him how he had done it, he gave her a roundhouse kick to the
    face and said, "Never question Chuck Norris."

    Chuck Norris once went to a frat party, and proceeded to roundhouse every
    popped collar in sight. He then drank three kegs and shit on their floor,
    just because he's Chuck Norris.

    Takeru Kobayashi ate 50 and a half hotdogs in 12 minutes. Chuck Norris ate
    12 asian babies in 50 and a half minutes. Chuck Norris won. (See? He saw the
    error of his ways.)

    When Chuck Norris plays Oregon Trail his family does not die from cholera or
    dysentery, but rather roundhouse kicks to the face. He also requires no
    wagon, since he carries the oxen, axels, and buffalo meat on his back. He
    always makes it to Oregon before you.

    Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and
    unparalleled martial arts ability.
    Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the
    devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony,
    couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming.
    They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.

    Chuck Norris frequently signs up for beginner karate classes, just so he can
    "accidentally" beat the shit out of little kids.

    Chuck Norris took my virginity, and he will sure as hell take yours. If
    you're thinking to yourself, "That's impossible, I already lost my
    virginity.", then you are dead wrong.

    At the end of each week, Chuck Norris murders a dozen white people just to
    prove he isn't a racist.

    In one episode of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Chuck Norris replaced Carlton for
    one scene and nobody noticed.

    Chuck Norris found out about Conan O'Brien's lever that shows clips from
    "Walker: Texas Ranger" and is working on a way to make it show clips of
    Norris having sex with Conan's wife.

    Chuck Norris has every copy of National Geographic in his basement. He also
    has the ability to lift every single one of them at once.

    Before each filming of Walker: Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris is injected with
    five times the lethal dose of elephant tranquilzer. This is, of course, to
    limit his strength and mobility, in an attempt to lower the fatality rate of
    the actors he fights.

    Chuck Norris doesn't have normal white blood cells like you and I. His have
    a small black ring around them. This signifies that they are black belts in
    every form of martial arts and they roundhouse kick the shit out of viruses.
    That's why Chuck Norris never gets ill.

    Chuck Norris ruins the endings of Harry Potter books for children who just
    bought one for the hell of it.

    When they start crying Chuck Norris calmly says, "I'll give you something to
    cry about," and roundhouse kicks them in the face.
