Eh, it doesn't matter if this is a legacy law passed in the days of the Cold War, when the Communist Party in the U.S. actually promoted violent overthrow. All that matters is that the left-leaning elitists have someone else they can call "backward" or "ignorant". No sense in letting facts get in the way of a perfectly good argument, right?

Submission + - Macs join the Army with ADmitMac for CAC (

Reverend Darkness writes: "Kinda hard to be considered counter-culture when you join the Army, but Macs are now allowed with ADmitMac for CAC. Thursby Software Systems has signed an Enterprise Agreement with the United States Army to provide licenses of its secure integration software for allowing Macs to take full advantage of Active Directory With Common Access Cards.

There is an implication that they are providing an Active Directory solution for the White House, as well."


Submission + - Global Warming Oppression Goes Both Ways ( 1

Reverend Darkness writes: "With all of the stories about climate change scientists being silenced by the Bush Administration comes an EPA investigation into a letter from the president of ACORE that threatens the career of a scientist who dares question the cause of climate change. From the article (in the Washington Times):

"It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar," Mr. Eckhart wrote. "If you produce one more editorial against climate change, I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity. I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members. I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America. Go ahead, guy. Take me on."

... and it's not the first time he's made such threats."
