Dice holdings gets most of its money through its main website, and the employees they can provide. Would it help convince them we're serious if we boycott this site next time we need a job?
In the comment http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=4728375&cid=46105237 I was commenting that the Nobel Peace Prize committee should take back the prize that they have wrongly awarded to Obama.
In the comment I used the full name of Obama, which is Barack Hussein Obama, which in fact, is the LEGAL NAME of the current POTUS.
For whatever reason, a fella "Stargoat" flamed me for using the full name of Obama and specifically accuse me of using the name of "Hussein" !
I was totally floored by the way that knee jerk threw his temper tantrum. I mean, The word "Hussein" isn't my invention, I wasn't the one who "gave" Obama that name.
It was Obama's dad who gave him that "Hussein". Not me.
Is it a taboo to use the full name of Obama ?
If it has become illegal to use Obama's full name, why don't they make an official law from now on, making it a federal offense for any "peon" to call the Emperor/ President / Dictator of the United States of America by his/her full name ?
Mr. Edward Snowden currently lives in an undisclosed location somewhere in Russia. He currently is under 24/7 threat from the United States of America for allegation of "treason".
One is currently the "President" and the other is currently labeled as a "fugitive".
For the past several months, revelations from the so-called "fugitive" has deeply troubled that "President", so much so that, few hours ago, that "President" had to come out to admit that the United States of America has spied on millions of people for no reason whatsoever.
It took MONTHS for that so-called "President" to admit his own wrongdoing, but even when that "President" has confessed to his own sin, Mr. Snowden, the "fugitive", is still under constant threat.
This is year 2014. The 14th years into the 21st century, and yet, our society still treats people with integrity, such as Mr. Edward Snowden, as a "fugitive". Meanwhile a man with no integrity whatsoever still gets to live inside the White House.
Is this the United States of America the founding fathers had envisioned ?
Or has the United States of America turned into the very DICTATORIAL MONSTER the founding fathers was fighting against ?
I had tried everything. I tried the patch, the gum, the pill that made the smokes taste nasty, and nothing. No matter what I kept on smoking. Now after 30 years I FINALLY was able to throw away the cigarette...thanks to e-cigs.
For anyone who wishes to try quitting using e-cigs some advice. 1.- Do NOT use the ones that look like a cigarette, not only are the batteries VERY weak but trying to get one of those to drag like a cigarette will just leave you frustrated. 2.- Get what is called a "510 thread" or "Ego style" unit, these can be had for as little as $25 online. 3.- Watch some of the excellent tutorials to find which tips are right for you, a good place to start would be "indoor smoking" on Youtube.
Hopefully this will inspire at least one other person to give it a try and if this old dog can learn a new trick and give up the butts? Then you can too!
A chill ran up my spine after I read http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/12/19/2113235/proposed-california-law-would-mandate-smartphone-kill-switch
Right now, as it is, NSA can listen to your telephone communication, can read your sms/email, can know where you are, who you regularly communicate with, can profile your behavior (when you will do what at where), but they still can't shut you off (unless they send in a "cleaner").
With the Kill Switch, they can do that.
Yes, the law as it is, is for people who report to the police that their smartphones were stolen, so that the authority can issue a "kill order" to brick that lost smartphone.
And we also know what NSA is all about - no law on the land can touch them - and with the availability of the "Kill Switch", NSA can effectively KILL THE PHONES of those who they do not like, cutting them off the communication grid, and leaving them out in the cold.
I can foresee the consequential abuses that will accompany this new "Kill Switch" law. It'll only make NSA (and all the other BIG BROTHERS) that much stronger.
Senator Hussein Barack Obama spoke about the GENOCIDE in Sudan, and also the GENOCIDE of the Armenian people by the Turks.
That was, of course, before Senator Obama became President Obama.
Once Obama moved into the White House, he stopped talking about GENOCIDE altogether. This page:
will show you the complete 180-degree change of direction Obama has taken on the Genocide in Sudan.
will guide you to the shameful decision by the Obama White House in refusing to display an 88-year-old rug, despite having promised so earlier, for a Smithsonian Institute project.
I, as an American Citizen, is very shameful to have Obama as my president. Although I never cast my vote for him, millions of my fellow Americans were stupid enough to elect this two-faced liar into the White house, not once, but twice.
If issues such as GENOCIDE can become a total non-issue, what kind of message the United States of America is going to give to the world, that America is a non-principled, rogue country ?
You ever wonder what would happen to privdog privacy guard if it went over 9999? Well if you want to see for yourself head over to "musicvideosthatsuck.net" as so far my privdog has managed to roll over TWICE and IT IS STILL GOING. I think I may have found the spammiest spammy spam of sites in all of creation. Anybody find any worse?

This page, dated 25th October 2013, stated that the building of the 3rd Chinese deep space tracking station has begun. The deep space tracking station will be build on a high plateau in between 800 meter to 900 meter above the sea level.
From 2003 to 2013, many more such absurdities came into being, from Obama's wish to revamp NASA into an organization to please the Muslims
to Obamacare website fiasco originated from the a no-bid $93 Million contract to Mitchelle Obama's ex classmate.
When I signed on to become an American I never imagine that my new country would become the buttjoke of the world, but unfortunately, it is.
I was one of the early investors in google, naturally, when others were still using altavista or yahoo I put my homepage as google.com
Google has always have that "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, and will send visitors to random sites (from a pre-chosen, pre-approved bunch, of course, don't want to send children to porn sites)
That was the google I knew
Nowadays, everything change
No matter if you start with google.rw or google.com.au or plain google.com, and click on that "I'm Feeling Lucky" button you will end up in the "doodle" page
What kind of fucking crap is that ?
" I don't know if your listeners or people living in the U.S. understand these changes, but as I observe them from the outside, I feel that America is gradually contracting and closing itself off. It's a very strange thing." "
The person who said the above is Mr. Wu Ji, the director of China's National Space Science Center ( http://cssar.cas.cn/ ), English version @ http://english.cssar.cas.cn/
As an American, the above quote left a very bitter taste in my mouth.
What the fuck has gone wrong with my country ?
First, it was revealed that America cracked the email of the Brazilian President.
Then, it was Mexico's turn, closely followed by revelation of NSA tapping on France' telecommunication network
Now, it's Germany's chancellor which got the unwelcome tap.
Would you still trust the United States of America as your ally ?
If you think TOR (The Onion Router) is safe, if you think that you can get away from the prying eyes of the BIG BROTHER you could not be more wrong.
TOR originated from a research project of the U.S. Naval Research Lab, and currently still receive funding from the states department of the US government, the Swedish government, and others.
And there already have been several cases of the fed successfully cracking the myriad layers of TOR and some people have already been apprehended.
This link outlined how FBI has successfully cracked TOR
The following link outlined the background of TOR

One week ago I left Hong Kong after it became clear that my freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.
On Thursday, President Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic "wheeling and dealing" over my case. Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions.
This kind of deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me.
For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right. A right that belongs to everybody. The right to seek asylum.
In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistleblowers like me, Bradley Manning or Thomas Drake. We are stateless, imprisoned, or powerless. No, the Obama administration is afraid of you. It is afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised â" and it should be.
I am unbowed in my convictions and impressed at the efforts taken by so many.
Edward Joseph Snowden Monday 1st July 2013
Just heard the term "Idealist Geeks" over the BBC worldservice
The guy was talking about folks like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden - digital age kids (geeks really) who are really good at the technology that spy agencies (like NSA) just can't do without
Of all the people in the world, why we Geeks have to take all the responsibilities all by ourselves ?
