House vote on illegal images sweeps in Wi-Fi, Web sites
Posted by Declan McCullagh

***Begin Quote***

The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bill saying that anyone offering an open Wi-Fi connection to the public must report illegal images including “obscene” cartoons and drawings–or face fines of up to $300,000.

***End Quote***

No hearings, no committees, no “controversy” here.

Argh!

Fire up the old inet and put a blow torch on the congress critters.

No you see why we need a “read the bills act” and “one subject at a time”.

What a bunch of bozos!

How America Lost the War on Drugs
After Thirty-Five Years and $500 Billion, Drugs Are as Cheap and Plentiful as Ever: An Anatomy of a Failure.

***Begin Quote***

Even by conservative estimates, the War on Drugs now costs the United States $50 billion each year and has overcrowded prisons to the breaking point – all with little discernible impact on the drug trade.

***End Quote***

Isn’t insanity defined as doing more of the same and expecting different results?

Don’t need a long article to say you can NOT stop someone from using drugs. All you can do is minimize the harm to others.

JOBSEARCH: Get an employment contract. Use a lawyer.

FROM AN EMAIL EXCHANGE

***Begin Quote***

>I am considering a job offer from a company in florida.

Get an employment contract. Use a lawyer.

I’ve heard some real horror stories about employers reneging, change of control, layoffs. firing, and all manner of disasters. I KNOW personally of one fellow who was in the air relo-ing his family internationally and the email came in “never mind”. He was royally screwed (only had a handshake). He was out eleven months; family had to go bunk in with her parents; lost a bundle. He’s my poster child for when people say they “can’t ask for a contract. it will look like i don’t trust them.” or “they don’t do contracts”. If not, why not?

We should make it a global executive demand!
