Thanks for that LOLCats link, Sky.

Here's Salman Khan explaining SOPA:

Have we all turned into anarchists yet?

Anonymous attacked some of these bastards...

It would be backward grammar to say "It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people" because they do that kind of thing, at public expense, to people I respect and admire, every damn day.

Happens to the nice people a lot, about time the Uglies get their share.

Had to change my keyboard back, even on a persistent save-file boot attackpup keeps reverting to the QWERTY Hand-breaker layout.

Anyway, just a suggestion, I've noticed in my rare interactions with police in their own nests, they all use Windows on their networks, and in the late evenings and on weekends and holidays they have the Not Very Privileged officers on duty, they get bored and start surfing the web at gambling sites, shopping sites and of course porn.

Now, in order to do that they have to find ways to breach their own firewalls. Clever, that is.

Except there's the probably awkward coincidence where they get hacked more often than Lizzie Borden's Parents and probably doesn't have anything to do with them surfing unsafely.

Mind, in America there's a huge concentration of military bases. There's 18 just within an hours drive of here. The local police are therefore hard-linked to not only the Federal police apparatus but also the military since they have to deal with soldiers and airmen, marines and sailors acting all kinds of up in their jurisdictions.

I mean, what if Anonymous were to find out about that? Not that I would tell them, I mean.

Having done my unfair share of 8 hour guard duty I can understand the urge to just occupy oneself with something else. The internet was still in birthing pangs when I was in and nobody was issued a computer at his/her guard post.

It's social engineering on a fairly broad scale.

Surely somebody has to have come to the realization that there's not a whole lot of people from the Ruling Class within the Warrior Class, they routinely and blatantly recruit worker class people with the rather sideways and snotty ad campaign which tells us that we're not going to have a chance at success and upward social mobility unless we enlist in the military/and-or/police. And they've made a big stink about wanting to cut the pensions and entry-level wages for cops. You know, the ones they're counting on to protect them from the torch-and-pitchfork parade outside their gates.

"Look, all you've got to do is disperse this mob for us and we'll cut your compensation roughly by a third to express our gratitude."
Yep, they've got a wonderful plan there.[/url]

who is next ?

when I was a kid there was a rule when you where in a fight
with more than one person against you
and that was hit the biggest one first
so... they see megaupload as the biggest one
very predictable what they are targeting ...upload sites
if you have any large files (linux related) on other sites its a good time to backup files before they are gone

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/20/technology/indictment-charges-megaupload-site-with-piracy.html

Quote:

The Megaupload case is unusual, said Orin S. Kerr, a law professor at George Washington University, in that federal prosecutors obtained the private e-mails of Megaupload’s operators in an effort to show they were operating in bad faith.


private emails too Rolling Eyes

The use of the word 'Piracy' is mental, if not actual, theft of the very meaning and common language use of another important International legal word

As such, it has prompted an article in a renowned Science Journal, Science 2.0

From Molly's article:
Quote:
I don't truly know whether Anonymous was cleverly goaded into #OpMegaUpload. But I do know that an attack this big on this many government sites will effectively erase those good Internet vibrations that were rattling around Capitol Hill this week and harden the perspective of legislators and law enforcement who want to believe that the Web community is made up of wild, law-breaking pirates. That, ultimately, may help strengthen the business--and the emotional--case for the pro-SOPA, pro-PIPA lobby. Did the feds just get the last lulz?


Maybe if she took some time off from her boot-licking of Congress, she'd get a better fix on reality. Virtually everyone in Congress would either shut down or completely neuter the Internet if they could figure out a way to do it without ending up hanging from a lamp post back in their home district. It's in the nature of governments to control communication - always. Anonymous won't make ordinary users mad - they are probably cheering from the sidelines. And refraining from attacking wouldn't make Congress any friendlier.

The notion that government manipulated Anonymous into attacking is even more absurd. That would only work if people would be outraged at the attacks. They aren't. What they are outraged at is Congress considering SOPA/PIPA. What they are outraged at is the prospect of losing Wikipedia and other popular sites.

It's inevitable that this conflict is going to come. Nerds against tyrants. Hope the nerds win...

Subject description: New Bill to replace SOPA PIPA
 

Oh, oh!

Read the last few paragraphs of the article Aitch brings to our attention:
http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/02/08/reid-sneaks-sopa-senate-82141/

Quote:
However some leaks suggest that the bill will grant the authority to crack down on the Internet to the executive branch of power, namely the White House. It looks highly possible taking into consideration that the legislation has to come out of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, chaired by Connecticut Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman.

The same Lieberman who earlier co-sponsored the so called Kill Switch bill that could allow the president of the United States to “declare a cybersecurity emergency,” and practically shut down the Internet.


So, effective public protest organized through the internet can be turned off in a minute by the government.

Thanks Aitch

Can't imagine trying to organise a snailmail protest

Methnks we need to take back control from these ubernutters before they have full and unlawful enslavement in place behind the 'civil society' masquerade

I've posted many links to the difference between common law and corporate/admin law, magna carta, permits/licences and natural and inalienable rights and the historical right of lawful rebellion - it must be recognised they are trying to initiate war against those who don't agree to enslavement, and being milked of money/energy/life....including civil war...keep it peaceful!
Here in UK it is gaining ground and peaceful civil arrests of corrupt public officials are already happening! Very Happy
The message is - Don't wait till it's too late....Reclaim your inalienable rights, NOW
