Journal Journal: Where is the USA on this one?

Where is the USA's compassion and might when Israel attacks refugee camps in Palestine? Women are killed and we have all seen the pictures of the children smoked by Israeli soldiers (read Death Squads). But my country looks the other way and invades Iraq. I'm surprised I even found this story on a major American news website:

Where is the Shock and Awe(TM) campaign against Israel?

Journal Journal: my rights are being taken away and i'm getting angry...

My rights (and yours) are being stolen. A students post graduate research has been DMCA smack downed and now I'm reading about Microsofts trusted computing again. Damn it makes me angry.

Let's take a look:

DMCA
BSA
RIAA
MSTCP (Microsoft Trusted Computing Platform)
Patriot Act
Homeland Security

and the list goes on. You got two security peeps who were going to give a talk about the flaws in a widely used payment/security system used a universities and they get hit with the DMCA.

They tried to work with the vendor but noooo. They can't fix the problem. But their lawyers can.

OK. I'm done.

Anything cut to length will be too short.

Working...
