No, I don't mean a tenured position, I mean the temporary position as a program director that she was fired from. It was a temporary position, and while it took a year to get her out, the wheels began to turn in November of 2013, only 3 months after she started. Which is clearly documented in the article.
She was a member of two different organizations (Womenâ(TM)s Committee Against Genocide and New Movement in Solidarity with Puerto Rican Independence) that were associated with the organization that committed the violent acts, the May 19 Communist Organization (M19CO).
She says she didn't know in advance that the violent acts were going to occur, but when she saw them in the news, she knew they were committed by the M19CO, and that the association between the M19CO organization and her own organizations existed.
She says she was casually acquainted with two of the convicted murderers, Judith Clark and Kuwasi Balagoon, who were members of the M19CO, and she maintained a relationship with Kuwasi Balagoon with letters and an in person visit, until he died.
Knowing these facts, they don't want to trust her with the position of program director. It was a new assignment, she only had a temporary job. They didn't take away the job she'd been doing for years because of what they found. The whole point of a temporary position is that no promises are made that it's going to last, so any expectations of permanence she had were her own mistake.
The more autistic among us will play rules lawyer games and insist that, technically, she didn't tell any lies, and given the benefit of the doubt on every occasion, you can't prove that she's not as pure as the driven snow. But they miss the point. The point is, the woman is a radical. Nothing wrong with that in and of itself, but you don't put radicals at the helm of the bureaucracy.
So, the Cyborg Unplug is made by Julian Oliver. Because, PRIVACY!
Clicking through to his personal site, we're greeted with another one of his creations... the Transparency Grenade. Because, TRANSPARENCY!
So, what happens if I throw a Transparency Grenade into a restaurant with a Cyborg Unplug running? Do they destroy each other?
No, if Iran sides with the US in stomping out ISIS, they are definitely not choosing the lesser evil...
No, just lying in bed, working from home at my highly paid job, wondering when it was that slashdot got so lame. Used to be people came back with facts. Or counter arguments. Or opinions of their own. Or experiences of their own.
But it's been reduced to the point where the only opposition I ever get to my statements is from idiots who try to paint me as something I'm not and attack that. It's sad. You're sad.
I'm everything I ever said that I was. My life is stranger than fiction most of the time anyway, I have no need to lie to get people excited.
I agree... there should be a color for this. In between "Free" and "Partly free"; there should be a "Technically Free but de-facto censored" category
Why are you so afraid to call a spade a spade? The USA is NOT a free country. They censor people, they incarcerate more of their population than any other country, they make debt slaves of the people that remain... they are NOT FREE, and they're using war to spread their NOT FREEDOM everywhere they can because they hate OUR freedom.
Your ad hominem attack is irrelevant to the topic at hand. It's also flat out wrong; I've traveled to numerous different countries, and spent several years living outside my home country.
You talk about infrastructure like it's the be-all-and-end-all of everything. It's not.
Takes some seriously Orwellian doublethink to pretend copyright enforcement isn't censorship. The idea that the USA is a bastion of freedom... wake me up when there's a study made by people who aren't batshit crazy.
Get her addicted to cigarettes and cocaine. And pull out her molars. That'll get the weight off.
Fake violence, like two guys punching it out, clearing the air and getting on with no lasting harm and no festering resentment.
As opposed to real violence, involving weapons, maiming and death.
Punch out your neighbor. Maybe you'll end up friends afterwards.
How on earth does this make him a "scumbag" and why do you want his career to fail, exactly?
Ever heard of something called integrity? This man has none. He crafted a huge lie and operated under false pretenses. Who cares why he did it? He did it. Nothing he says or does can be trusted now. People who spread lies and misinformation like this JUSTIFY censorship.
Espionage is not science. There's this thing called the scientific method, look it up.
I hope this guys career ends it the toilet. It takes a real scumbag to carry off this kind of hoax.
He's right, though. Could be a form of epilepsy. Should get her checked by a real doctor.
A deep evolutionary pathway "gets it", dude. Like a bridge to nowhere, it goes its own way. Not like those shallow evolutionary pathways that just want to converge. I hate those guys!
I'd recommend reading "The Conquest of Bread" by Peter Kropotkin.
My perspective is that governments and economies are command and control technologies for civilizations, and the ones we have are ill suited to a world without scarcity. They destroy wealth to make the system work as it is, and with the technologies emerging, it's going to become ridiculous. So, the imperative is to create a better command and control technology, one that is fair, makes everyone feel suitability represented, elevates the right people at the right time and works toward abundance instead of destroying it.
