    The word “troll” no longer conjures up a dumpy little plastic figure with brightly coloured hair: nor a monster from The Lord of the Rings. If you live even a part of your life online, you’ll know that trolls today are better known as the angry and usually anonymous commenters on web forums, whose aim is to shock, offend, annoy or upset fellow users. Trolling made headlines this week when Sean Duffy, a young man from Reading, was given 18 weeks’ imprisonment for defacing Facebook tributes to four dead teenagers whom he had never met. The abuse was vile: on...

    Reading a skan-original "first printed" of the Ostrozhsky (OstRih) Bible of 1581 y. (see - Sources), auxiliary I've used traditional Synodal (RST) and Church-slavic (CS) versions. Soon I began to notice a difference of senses in texts of Bibles. Reading, only for the sake of acquaintance with a curiosity, has turned to the most fascinating detective research. The book "Exod", in (RST), (CS), (OstRih), (Torah), and parts of other books, a line by a line - in parallel, has been read, and the differential table is made. (drafts: Gradually I linked up other canonical and uncanonical Bibles to comparison...

    Messed up a bit on my first attempt. :) Legal question for all you jus soli types. Suppose a foreign woman was orbiting the earth. Does the child become an American only if they happen to be over the United States when he pokes his head out? This is why your argument is so stupid. Ponder that for a bit.

    US News ^ | 8/18/11 | Kenneth T. Walsh
    Perry's announcement speech got positive coverage, but the media's approach has been growing increasingly negative. Perry has been very visible, voluble, and controversial, and the media have been portraying him as something verging on a loose cannon. One example was his response to a question about whether President Obama loves his country. Perry said the questioner would have to ask Obama--which left the impression that Perry has doubts about the president's patriotism. Another example came yesterday, when Perry called global warming "a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into...

    I’ve lived in Texas throughout the entirety of the Perry administration. He hasn’t been the most awful governor we might have had, but in truth, he’s been mediocre. It is true to say that Perry deserves a little credit for the better economic conditions in the state, insofar as he’s done no particular harm. On the other hand, it’s fair to say that part of the reason Perry’s done no particular harm, and perhaps the sole reason he hasn’t damaged the economy, is because the Texas people, through their legislature, won’t let him. The governor’s real shortcomings are not to...

  • ZOT! The 400 Richest Americans Pay An 18% Tax Rate

    The 400 richest Americans used to pay 30% of their income on the average to Uncle Sam. Today, they pay 18% on the average. The main reason for the drop in their tax rate of some 40% is the tax cuts by George Bush in 2003, taking the rate paid on dividends and capital gains down to 15%.

    I apologize in advance, but I have to get this out of my system. I LOVE MY STATE. I love everything about it, like the unique culture. The wonderful Georgia landscape. The agrarian Southern values and tradition. The absolute refusal to go along just because a bully has a gun to our heads. It’s been said that history is replete with turning points. While true, the one staring us as a state in the eye is a crucial one - whether or not to enforce the law of the land. Our federal overseers have consistently failed, time and again, to...

    A federal judge ruled in favor of a defendant who reposted an entire article in a copyright case on Monday, Wired reports. The lawsuit was brought by Righthaven, a Las Vegas-based “copyright litigation factory,” according to Wired, that has sued more than 200 websites, bloggers, and commenters for copyright infringement. This particular lawsuit targeted Wayne Hoehn, who posted an entire editorial from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and its headline, “Public Employee Pensions: We Can’t Afford Them” on a website Hoehn was not an employee of the site.
  • David Tyree, Archbishop Timothy Dolan wasting their breath spewing ignorance on gay marriage issue

    New York Daily News ^ | Wednesday, June 22nd 2011 | Mike Lupica
    First there is Archbishop Timothy Dolan, who came here from Milwaukee and sounds more like somebody from out of town than ever, saying that the idea of gay marriage constitutes an "ominous threat" to everything good and decent. Dolan sounds like somebody worrying that if gay marriage becomes law in New York on his watch, it may drop a safe on his chances of being promoted to Cardinal. Dolan also tells Fred Dicker on the radio last week how he understands that those who want the gay marriage bill in the state Senate to become law in New York are...

    I visited Orly Taitz' website yesterday to catch up on any news re the various court proceedings she is involved in and immediately a pop-up appeared asking if I wanted to run a script. I closed the browser without responding. Thereafter, everything on my desktop disappeared, the Task Manager was disabled and many important applications were wiped out. This was on my work computer and I had to get an IT guy to look at the PC. It took nearly 4 hours to restore everything. The IT guy said that if it was a personal computer, the machine would have...
