  • Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Which Is the Biggest Moocher State of All?

    Which state gets the biggest share of its budget from the federal government? Is it California, the left’s bizarre alternative universe?Is it Illinois, the poster child for big-government excess? Nope, not even close. As a matter of fact, those two jurisdictions are among the 10-least dependent states.And if you’re guessing that the answer is New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Connecticut, or some other “blue state,” that would be wrong as well.Instead, if you check out this map from the Tax Foundation, the answer is Mississippi, followed by Louisiana, Tennessee, Montana, and Kentucky. All of which are red states! So does...

Jerry Brown on July 1 signed several gun control measures, fortifying California’s already strong gun restrictions over the objections of those who saw the bills eroding Second Amendment rights.</p>

    Last night, the Linux Mint team announced that someone had hacked their servers and started pointing user downloads to malicious ISO images for the Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon edition. Our Linux editor already covered the initial details of the attack, which we recommend reading before going forward with this article. Since then, in the last ten hours, the Linux and infosec communities have been working hard to investigate what happened and how the hackers operated. Linux Mint Team: They hacked us via our WordPress site The first to provide an answer was Clement Lefebvre, leader of the Linux Mint project,...

    Commenters could cross-site script. Wordpress developer Automattic is urging users to urgently update their installations of the company's publishing platform to fix a critical vulnerability that could lead to attackers taking over entire sites. Jouko Pynnönen of security vendor discovered a cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in WordPress that allows commenters to inject Javascript into sites. When admin users check the comments to moderate them and execute the Javascript they contain attackers can gain full control of the target WordPress site through the plugin and theme editors.

    If there is one thing I hate, it is spam. I hate spam email, spam snail mail, and most of all, spam comments on my blog. I take great pains to keep spam comments off Political Realities. At the same time, I want to make it easy for normal commenters to leave their thoughts on the blog, even if I disagree with what they have to say. That said, this post may only be of interest to those of you who operate WordPress blogs, but it is important enough for me to share in a post of its own. Every...

    All of these security weaknesses, it turns out, could allow an unidentified group of hackers to use “brute force” attacks on WordPress installations and form a huge “botnet” of infected servers. A report by Dan Goodin in Ars Technica details the threat. Unnamed attackers “are using more than 90,000 IP addresses to brute-force crack administrative credentials of vulnerable WordPress systems, researchers from at least three Web hosting services reported. At least one company warned that the attackers may be in the process of building a “botnet” of infected computers that’s vastly stronger and more destructive than those available today.”

Bonnie, in an exclusive interview, told Big Government that WordPress suddenly blocked her site “around Thanksgiving” and sent her a message...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2011-11-06 | Connie Woodcock
    One sunny afternoon in early fall, a bunch of my neighbours were standing around watching a sick raccoon die on somebody’s front lawn. In the old pre-gun registry days, someone would have gone home, got a shotgun or .22 and put the poor creature out of its misery. But, as one said to me, his gun wasn’t registered and he didn’t want to be seen with it. Someone might call the cops or a cruiser might happen by. That, in a nutshell, is what’s wrong with the gun registry: It makes criminals out of perfectly ordinary people doing nothing wrong,...

    High Level Logic (HLL) Open Source Project ^ | September 20, 2010 | Roger F. Gay
    IntroductionAn application programmer spends six months perfecting a set of components commonly needed in the large company that employs him. Some of the components were particularly tricky and key pieces required very high quality, reliable and complex exception handling. It has all been tuned to run quickly and efficiently. Thorough testing has demonstrated his success. Part of his idea of “perfection” was to build in a way that the software, even many of the individual components, could easily be reused. But it is surprisingly likely that no one outside of a small group within the project will ever hear of...

    After the U.S. Government took action against several sites connected to movie streaming recently, nerves are jangling over the possibility that this is just the beginning of a wider crackdown. Now it appears that a free blogging platform has been taken down by its hosting provider on orders from the U.S. authorities on grounds of “a history of abuse”. More than 73,000 blogs are out of action as a result. Hot on the heels of recent threats from Vice President Joe Biden and Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel directed at sites offering unauthorized movies and music, last month U.S....

    1:05 update: According to our private phone conversations with people in Tehran, hundreds of parents have gathered by a police station in Yousef Abad, now known as Seyyed Jamal Aldin Asad Abadi, with their hands raised to the sky saying “Obama, please help us, they are killing our young children.”  They were gathering there because their kids are missing and they were trying to find out where they are. Also, according to eyewitness accounts, gunshots could be heard last night until 3am in Elahiyeh, alongside chants of “God is great!” from people on their rooftops.  This was a widespread tactic in the 1979 revolution,...
