We don't want any part of the process or to interrupt it at all - just want to see what...

    Meet the groundbreaking new encryption app set to revolutionize privacy and freak out the feds. It’s a game-changer that will almost certainly make life easier and safer for journalists, dissidents, diplomats, and companies trying to evade state surveillance or corporate espionage.

    I do not post a whole lot, so I hope there aren't major violations here.. Just an observation from this morning - I was hoping to have a YouTube to post by now, sadly the only supporting evidence I've found is something of a vanity post over at the DUmpster. Long Story Short - Got up early this morn and watched a bit of Sesame Street with the little man and there was a skit on regarding GNN "grouchy news network"(Oscar the Grouch). There were what seemed to be a lot of allusions to FNC - but I wrote it...

    A source close to Kerry tells NBC News that he was trying to make a "tough and honest joke" about Bush and that in the process he omitted two words which changed the intended meaning. Per the source, Kerry meant to say that he can't "overstress the importance of a great education" and that "if you don't study, if you aren't smart, if you're intellectually lazy... You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq." Kerry mistakenly dropped the "getting us" from his initial remarks.
