Emergency Government Control of the Internet?

hawkd_sf Not about spying, it's about control (853 comments)

Ever since the revelation of the "spying switchrooms" at AT&T facilities, I've been saying that the much more serious issue than spying (and I'm not belittling that issue at ALL) is that, if they can scan all traffic in that room, they can just as easily STOP all traffic in that room without any authorization or ongoing assistance from AT&T. The fact that the Obama adminstration has not seen fit to prosecute these (types of) crimes, as well as the numerous war crimes of the Bush administration just shows them to be MORE OF THE SAME. "Change we can believe in."? I don't think so.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii To Include Official "Cheat"

hawkd_sf Yes, Good Idea (275 comments)

I have a 19 year-old son with a disability. He has always enjoyed video games but quite simply, lacks the eye-hand fine motor skills to play a lot of them. I've often thought while watching him struggle with this that it would be great if games could be "adjusted" to be "doable" by others than those with the time, skill and inclination to invest incredibly long hours in a game. Don't worry "gamers", I don't think he'll ever try to claim your title or take you on in a game. He's just a kid who has had way more than his share of (real) challenges in life and wants to have just a tiny bit of the same kind of fun that the "T-D's" (typically developing) have. CTFO.

Taxpayers Fund AIG Lawsuit Against US

hawkd_sf Obviously much too simple... (784 comments)

But, since "we" own 80 some-odd percent of AIG, can't "we" just call a shareholders meeting, stop the lawsuit, fire a bunch of the bastards and well, basically do whatever "we" want with their bloated, stinking carcass? I'm just sayin'...
