TSA Airport Screenings Now Start Before You Arrive At the Airport

Paracelcus Re:Sounds ominous, but... (437 comments)

Like having a Gestapo beating every time you leave the house, the day you don't get beaten, feels like a victory!

Don't fly, unless it's absolutely unavoidable, the only way we will get back our rights against unreasonable search & seizure will be when it hurts the transportation industry!

Ask Slashdot: Starting From Scratch After a Burglary?

Paracelcus Your home PC (770 comments)

Your home (replacement) PC should be a home built whitebox with the guts of your choice and NO case cover (bare chassis) IMHO no burglar would be interested and you could pass a vinyl coated bicycle cable through the framework of the chassis with a padlock.

Obama Signs Cybersecurity Executive Order

I almost chocked when that pusbag Panetta started the histrionically absurd oral flatulence, bleating about "cyber Pearl Harbors" and the "destruction of our infrastructure"!

It's all just one more example of this government trying desperately to frighten it's citizenry as it has found that a terrified population will accept ANY abrogation of basic liberty and constitutional rights to "keep them safe"!

E-Mail Hack Exposes Bush Family Pictures, Correspondence

Paracelcus Re:For lying us into a war... (230 comments)

Everybody, everywhere is a TERROR-WRIST!

Let's start putting them in FEMA camps for their protection! FEMA camps? why they're only for housing people during a "emergency", no? And the guard towers, electrified barbed/concertina wire fences is just to insure that the interned are "safe" no?

In the (future) land of the "free", "freedom" will mean that you are kept happily distracted while you are slowly and methodically herded into a slave labor camp where you will be kept medicated while you work for a Chinese company 12 hours a day, 6 days a week until you "retire" and are surreptitiously turned into cat food.

Just a joke?

A determined population armed with arms that may be stolen from the invaders/oppressors if not hidden in remote caches awaiting the day freedom calls, absolutely cannot be resisted or defeated, unless you just want to sterilize the land with nukes!

Does anybody believe that..

Paracelcus Paracelcus writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Paracelcus (151056) writes "Does anybody believe that Bin Ladin was killed on Sunday?
It would seem that he's been dead since 2001, So is it propaganda? How about the "spontaneous" demonstrations outside the White House, rather like the Soviet era "spontaneous" demonstrations that used to crop up as punctuating important propaganda events."

The lies about unemployment!

Paracelcus Paracelcus writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Paracelcus (151056) writes "The gummermint want's you to believe that everything's OK, so that you can vote for Bush 2.5.3 AKA Obama, but actually it's just (book cooking).

Quote:
“What we have is a falling participation rate, that is the number of people working compared to the number of adult citizens in the population as a whole,” he explained. “What I remain concerned about is that the reason the unemployment rate is coming down is because people are giving up and leaving the work force. Some of that is dues to being discouraged, some of that is due to the fact the baby boomers are starting to retire.” -Karl Denninger, the editor and founder of The Market Ticker"

This story went missing

Paracelcus Paracelcus writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Paracelcus (151056) writes "I received this via RSS, and when clicked on it was gone, what happened? Missing story follows.

"Dell Knew About Computer Failures

CrossChris writes " Freedom of information' has revealed details of a lawsuit against Dell where they admit that they knew about a high failure rate of their products, but hid it from their corporate customers! From the article: '...Dell apparently encouraged its salespeople and technicians to not let customers know about known defects, and said internally that most customers (those who had not bought more than 50 machines) would be subject to "fix on fail"—that is, the company would only help them when their machines broke down. An internal presentation on the Optiplex GX and SX270 acknowledges that the company had discovered "quality issues," but that employees should not proactively bring them to customers' attention.'" ""

Swat Team Raids Food Co-op in Rural Ohio

Paracelcus Paracelcus writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Paracelcus writes "Can a peach, go to prison! Swat Team Raids Food Co-op in Rural Ohio On Monday, December 1, a SWAT team with semi-automatic rifles entered the private home of the Stowers family in LaGrange, Ohio, herded the family onto the couches in the living room, and kept guns trained on parents, children, infants and toddlers, from approximately 11 AM to 8 PM. The team was aggressive and belligerent. The children were quite traumatized. At some point, the "bad cop" SWAT team was relieved by another team, a "good cop" team that tried to befriend the family. The Stowers family has run a very large, well-known food cooperative called Manna Storehouse on the western side of the greater Cleveland area for many years."
