In the case of Purell, its Triclosan that is an issue.

On its own its not the worst threat in the environment, but when you add it along with
others the combined threat is pretty bad and would explain the reduction of quality of
health compared to some other nations.

As someone who went to GSM seminars, and AIN for cell networks they can
just follow the tower hand offs.

For awhile ppl could get antennas that glowed when they transmitted, and one
of my co-workers on the SS7 let me know he could watch the tower hand offs
as he moved from "cell zone" to "cell zone".

Well he probably was not cooperating with the group that was receiving tax payer

It could be worse, he could have ended up like barry seal.

When you know too much about CIA drug running you may end up dead
such as Pat Tillman, thou he did say he was going to go talk to Noam Chomsky, so....

"Despite his fame, Tillman did not want to be used for propaganda purposes. He spoke to friends about his opposition to President Bush and the Iraq war, and he had made an appointment with notable government critic Noam Chomsky for after his return from the military. The destruction of evidence linked to Tillman's death, including his personal journal, led his mother to speculate that he was murdered.[31] General Wesley Clark agreed that it was "very possible".[32][33]"

In the case of Michael Ruppert they let it slide, but did steal his computer.

Surprised Mr. Ruppert is still with us.

Others like Terrance Yeakey left us for other reasons, but by the same ppl.

The secret police is targeting honest citizens folks.

The funny thing is it is just data, and a copy could be exported, setup in a parallel system
to just act as a backup for awhile, confirm it is keeping parity, then do a cutover during a long
holiday and do testing.

If it has issues return to the old system til the issues are worked out.

Its amazing how fear drives some places to hold onto legacy ancient gear.

In 2007 Dell was running on a Tandem mainframe supported by COMPAQ/HP.

And that is totally hilarious with it being Dell.

" A casino is not at the core of the dollar's system. "

That's right, wall street is not a casino, its stable, honest, and reliable.

Glad I wasn't drinking anything I might have spewed while typing that.

While wall street is not the one that issues the money, they are the ones
that turn it into a casino, and theft is VERY much a part of it.

To the tune of $32 trillion that has been traced.

How much was not traceable, who knows...

Its in the BETA phase, most BETAs have issues, and even after final release they get service packs/patches.

BitCoin isn't perfect, and neither is any of the paper currencies.

"Work in Progress" sums up the stage BTC is at in my opinion.

Someday it may become a final product that will never need another "patch",
but even most modern software that is many years old still gets patches.
