    While the world may have become habituated to (and perhaps revels in, thank you social media exhibitionist culture) the fact that the NSA is watching anyone and everyone, intercepting, recording, and hacking every electronic exchange regardless if it involves foreign "terrorists" or US housewives, the discoveries from the Snowden whistleblowing campaign continue. The latest revelation from the biggest wholesale spying scandal since Nixon, exposed by Germany's Spiegel which continues the strategy of revealing Snowden leaks on a staggered, delayed basis, involves a back door access-focused NSA division called ANT, (which supposedly stands for Access Network Technology), described by Spiegel as...

  • The Surveillance Catalog - Where governments get their tools

    11/21/2011 1:09:54 AM PST · by LibWhacker · 4 replies
    Documents obtained by The Wall Street Journal open a rare window into a new global market for the off-the-shelf surveillance technology that has arisen in the decade since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The techniques described in the trove of 200-plus marketing documents include hacking tools that enable governments to break into people’s computers and cellphones, and "massive intercept" gear that can gather all Internet communications in a country. The documents—the highlights of which are cataloged and searchable here...[snip]
  • Strap in, shut up and hold on. We're going back. (JC Penney catalog from 1977)

    Last weekend I put an exhaust fan in the ceiling for my wife's grandfather. After a bunch of hours spent in The Hottest Attic In The Universe, he had a ceiling fan that ducted to the side of his house. While my brother-in-law and I were fitting the fan in between the joists, we found something under the insulation. What we found was this: A JC Penney catalog from 1977. It's not often blog fodder just falls in my lap, but holy hell this was two solid inches of it, right there for the taking. I thumbed through it quickly...

    Catholic League ^ | December 1, 2005 | William Donohue
    When the Catholic League got a tip from one of its members that Lands’ End refuses to use the word “Christmas” in its catalog—even though it sells Christmas items—we verified its authenticity.  Printed below is part of the reply we received from Merlin W. Gorsline in the Customer Relations Department to an inquiry we made regarding the refusal of Lands’ End to mention the word “Christmas”:  “We find ourselves in a difficult position with this issue.  As a result, we have adopted the ‘holiday’ terminology as a way to comply with one of the basic freedoms granted to all Americans:...
  • Maine: Bill backs tax on Internet, catalog sales (Here we go....)

    03/23/2005 8:30:25 AM PST · by SheLion · 30 replies · 836+ views
    AUGUSTA - If Maine had been collecting the sales tax it was owed on Internet and mail-order sales, it is projected the state would have collected another $58.9 million in sales taxes in 2003. A national study also estimates that loss in tax revenue could grow to between $81 million and $126 million in 2008 if not corrected."This is tax that is owed under current law and we are not collecting it now," Rep. Arthur Lerman, D-Augusta, said last week. "I cannot understand why this issue is not drawing more attention from the administration or, frankly, from other legislators."Lerman has...

    The clothier boycotted last winter by pro-family groups for its pornographic holiday quarterly has skipped the nudity and salaciousness in this year's edition. One of the hallmarks of the past several Christmas seasons is nowhere to be found this year — and family advocates couldn't be happier. What's missing? A nudity-packed holiday catalog from notorious clothier Abercrombie & Fitch, which has toned down its pornographic marketing strategy in the wake of a boycott launched last winter by Focus on the Family and other pro-family groups. "They were compelled to make a change because of the economic impact of people who...

    Clothier dismissed family groups' impact, had insisted racy quarterly would be back Abercrombie & Fitch announced it will permanently cease publication of a controversial quarterly catalog that prompted a boycott campaign by family advocacy groups. Despite claims to the contrary in recent weeks, the Christmas issue featuring pornography and articles about "group sex and more" will be the company's last "magalog." Abercrombie said it pulled the "Christmas Field Guide" from stores just before Thanksgiving to clear shelf space for a new perfume, but insisted another issue would come out in January with the usual naked young people in sexually provocative...

    If you think you're paying too many taxes now, did you know this? Gov. Mitt Romney is hoping you'll "volunteer" to pay more.  NewsCenter 5's Janet Wu said that for the first time, this year's income tax form will have a new line item -- asking you to estimate and pay the sales tax on items you've purchased from out of state.  Massachusetts Revenue Commissioner Alan LeBovidge said that when you open your income tax form this year, look for line 33. You're invited to pay all the sales tax you've avoided by going over the border.  "Under the law,...
