GAO report faults Border Patrol on checkpoints
08-29-2009  •  Arizona Republic 

One of the findings of a Government Accountability Office draft report was that the Border Patrol hasn't documented how many agents it needs to confront smugglers sneaking around a proposed permanent checkpoint on Interstate 19 in southern Arizona.

Residents near a southern Arizona checkpoint have complained that illegal immigrants and smugglers are flooding their community as they sneak around the roadblock. The Border Patrol operates a checkpoint at an overpass in Tubac, Ariz.

School kid pummeled by cop for refusing to get school picture
08-29-2009  •  WALB 
Dougherty County School Police are investigating a complaint of excessive force against a sixth grade girl arrested for protesting having her picture taken.

Her father shows scratches on 11-year-old Treneashe Graddy's neck and back. She says she was thrown to the ground and arrested at Southside Middle School.

When school officials tried to take her picture for school identification, she refused because her hair was not fixed.

Criminal Cops of the Week Time!
08-29-2009  •  Injustice Everywhere 
Since this week seems to be dedicated to The “Learning” Channel’s apparent attempt to promote police brutality through their advertising campaign for the “Police Women of Broward County” series, I figured it would be interesting to see how TLC would apply their pro-brutality advertising campaign, which includes gems like “Taser Time!“, “Cavity Search Anyone?” and “It’s always a good time to taser someone!” to other acts of police misconduct elsewhere.

Gross Negligence at the Fed. The drama unfolds slowly at first, so be patient and please watch it in its entirety. First-term (anti-bailout candidate) Democrat Alan Grayson questions Elizabeth Coleman, Inspector General of the Federal Reserve. The issue is oversight of the Fed's ever-expanding balance sheet, and the potential multi-trillion dollar loss that would be borne by you. You can easily send this video to your representatives in Washington. Their email addresses and phone numbers can be found here. There's no doubt we face an uphill battle, but if we are to have any realistic shot of breaking Wall Street's hold over Washington, it's going to happen through awareness. It's that simple. The more that voters learn about these abuses, the more noise we can all make. And you are making that happen with your emails. I've been amazed. Thank you!

Nation's Unemployment Outlook Improves Drastically After Fifth Beer
08-29-2009  •  The Onion 
Despite ongoing economic woes and a jobless rate that has been approaching 10 percent, U.S. unemployment projections drastically improved Monday after the consumption of five beers. "It's going up," leading economist David Singleton said confidently, indicating the predicted growth in jobs with an upward wave of a Bud Light bottle. "All the way up. By the end of the month. No problem." Singleton said the economy would begin its rebound once employers realized that there were many currently unemployed skilled laborers across the country who would "bust their asses" in a number of growing fields. "Whether it's manufacturing, finance, hospitality, or manufacturing, these dudes trying to reenter the workforce right now have awesome skill sets and, most of all, they really deserve it," he said. "They're great, great guys. All of them." According to analysts, both long- and short-term forecasts showed signs of reco

In all the inevitable hoopla surrounding the coming anniversary of “Lehman weekend” " those fateful days in mid-September 2008, when the financial world seemed on the brink of collapse " here’s an important event that will almost surely be overlooked: On Sept. 18, just a few days after the anniversary, the Treasury Department will end a program that essentially gave the same kind of protection to money market investors that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation gives to bank depositors. The government guaranteed that investors wouldn’t lose a penny.

Healthcare reform bill = loss of privacy
08-28-2009  •  One News Now 
A free-market think tank is warning that the House healthcare bill could potentially give thousands of federal employees access to citizens' financial records. The House healthcare bill, H.R. 3200, expressly gives the new Health Choices Commissioner the right to look at an individual's tax return to determine what medical benefits or subsidies that person qualifies for. Section 431 of the bill allows the new commissioner to view individuals' filing status, adjusted gross income, number of dependents, and tax credits taken. Tom Giovanetti with the Institute for Policy Innovation says there are egregious violations of privacy in the draft legislation. "A lot of people who are concerned about privacy, they're concerned about privacy from corporations. They're worried about things like browser cookies....And our point here is that what we really ought to be concerned about is privacy from government," he suggests. "Hewlett Packard can't kn

Editorialists Roast Rangel
08-28-2009  •  National Legal and Policy Center 
House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel (D-NY) may have gotten a fleeting break when Edward Kennedy’s death knocked reports of his newly-disclosed wealth off the front page. But by this morning, editorial writers had caught their breath and were busy at work skewering the Chairman of the committee that writes the nation’s tax laws. And just think how much fresh meat has been left for the weekend crew. From the New York Daily News: There are two sets of rules for Rep. Charlie Rangel - the ones he writes for everyone else and the ones that are, or were, beneath his compliance, powerful personage that he is. From the Wall Street Journal: When normal people happen to "find" their own money, it might mean a twenty left in a winter coat, or discovering change beneath the sofa cushions. But if you're Charlie Rangel, it means doubling your net worth. From the New York Post: Rep. Charlie Rangel's multimillion-dollar "oops" this month raises

2009 bank-failure tally climbs to 84
08-28-2009  •  Market Watch 
Three more banks were closed by regulators Friday, bringing the 2009 toll to 84. The largest of Friday's three closures announced by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was Affinity Bank, based in Ventura, Calif. Affinity, which had total assets of $1 billion, deposits of $922 million and 10 branches in Northern and Southern California as of July 10, will be taken over by San Diego-based Pacific Western Bank, the FDIC announced. The FDIC said former Affinity branch offices in San Francisco and San Mateo will be-open Saturday and the rest will re-open on Sunday. The FDIC said it and Pacific Western entered into a loss-share transaction of approximately $934 million of Affinity Bank's assets. The federal agency estimated the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund at $254 million. Earlier Friday, regulars closed Baltimore-based Bradford Bank and Forest Lake, Minn.-based Mainstreet Bank. Bradford Bank, the second bank to fail in Maryland this year, had $452 million

Secessionist movement under way in Texas
08-28-2009  •  The Examiner 
Fiercely independent and thoroughly horrified at the blatantly unconstitutional explosion of federal tyranny into every aspect of our lives, Texans are set to march on the state capitol in droves on Saturday. They will be delivering a million-strong petition to their elected officials based on the 10th Amendment, demanding an immediate constitutional confrontation with Washington. If they are turned away or their concerns inadequately addressed, organizer Gerry Donaldson says they "will be forced to call for a vote for secession." This will not be the last time a state openly defies Obama's treasonous war on the Constitution. Donaldson, who runs his own Internet radio show, says they are "calling for an orderly process that will allow our federal government to fall back in line with the Constitution." He continued, "Either we will restore America, we will live in a Marxist dictatorship, or we will secede and start over again."

Obama's labor secretary lets union officials off transparency hook
08-28-2009  •  Washington Post 
Never mind about those revised union financial disclosure requirements President Obama inherited from his predecessor. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis now says she won’t make union officials comply. Unions officials complained for eight years that regulations issued by Elaine Chao, President George W. Bush’s Labor Secretary, were more rigorous than required by the Labor Management and Reporting Disclosure Act (LMRDA), which calls for modestly detailed annual financial reports by unions with receipts of $250,000 or more. The Bush-Chao regulations require union officials to disclose financial information that could aid union members’ seeking information on how their union leaders are spending dues money, and to help expose “no show jobs” that put paychecks for ghost employees into union coffers. Before Bush took office, the reports were mostly ignored by the Labor Department. Now, it’s back to business-as-usual. A notice appeared this week on the department’s web site saying the Office

Irrespective of the name, in this case it is a fee. (It becomes a tax if any of it is diverted to the city from the enterprise that charges it.) It was not approved by the voters and violates TABOR, if not in letter then in spirit.

While the agency is facing a situation where 97 sworn officer positions remain unfilled and possible elimination of 15 civilian jobs, absolutely no mention is made of cuts regarding the disastrous and unpopular photo radar surveillance program.

HB 1388 - You Cannot Serve Two Masters
08-28-2009  •  T F Stern 
A piece of legislation which may have slipped under the radar, HB 1388, named the “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education” bill (GIVE), has some interesting and alarming inclusions for young people who accept a student loan. The strings attached to such student loans would be mandatory service for a minimum of three months in “Obama’s Youth Brigade”.

The kind of service required brings to mind a brown shirted youth brigade, reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, and has yet to face much if any public scrutiny; however, SEC. 1310 SEC 132A, which was removed and previously listed as SEC. 1304. Section 125, basically forbids church attendance in any way shape or form.

While written in such a way as to prohibit persons from using their position as volunteers to actively promote a specific religion, which would violate the current interpretation of separation of church and state; 1310 SEC 132A also acts to prohibit that same volunteer from par

Picture Worth 1,000 Clicks?
08-28-2009  •  webpronews.com 

To get the most out of the images on your site, you have to optimize them. According to R.J. Pittman of Google, good image optimization starts with having the best quality of images that you can have. The next step is to have an expressive title as well as rich descriptive content that explain the image.

Webmasters also have the opportunity to provide topic tags, which are keywords that a searcher might use in a query. As Pittman tells special guest WPN correspondent Eric Enge, the more information that the user provides for the image, the better Google can index and surface the image.

Google is even developing RDFa tag structure, which would allow it to work off of a new language vocabulary that users could embed into their Web pages. The html structure would provide a means for search engines to identify various features of the image and thus provide more accurate image results.

Despite all the additional exposure images could bring to websites,
