Entitlement my ass!!!

Written by Ed on June 26, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

I paid for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout !! Congressional benefits, aka. free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements!!!!!!…..
scroll down……………

What the HELL’s wrong???

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

Tuesday’s Daily Bulletin paper, ran two articles on the front page side by side:

1- Calif’s 20 Billion Dollar Budget Deficit

2- The Calif Supreme Court ruling that ILLEGALS can attend college and get benefits.

Why don’t they just deport them when they arrive to register?

3- Last year they ran an article on the yearly costs to Calif Taxpayers from Illegals using Hospital Emergency Rooms for their general health care –

At just one hospital the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year

Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!

We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, Japan and Turkey. And Pakistan ……home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$’s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when its time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment – etc, etc.

YET…………………

They have a ‘Benefit’ for the people of Japan on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘THE CITIZENS OF THE USA’ the same support they give to other countries.
NOTE: FLOODS, FIRES, AND TORNADOS…

Sad isn’t it?

Why Is The Economy So Bad?

Written by Ed on June 26, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

Millions of Americans have lost their homes, tens of millions of Americans can’t find a decent job and 44 million Americans are on food stamps. This is causing an increasing number of Americans to ask this question: “Why is the economy so bad?” There are some Americans that are old enough to remember the Great Depression, but the vast majority of us have never known hard times. All our lives we were told that America was the greatest economy on the planet and that we would always experience endless prosperity in this nation. That was easy to believe because even though we had a recession once in a while, things always bounced back and got even better than ever. But now something seems different. The current economic downturn began back in 2007 and yet here we are in 2011 and there seems to be no end in sight for this economic crisis. So what in the world is going on? Can anyone explain why the economy is so bad?

My Dog

Written by Ed on June 26, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He visits the doctor once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free.

He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day. I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head…

My Dog Is A Democrat !!!!!!

Will states actually block Obama from ballot access?

Written by Ed on June 22, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

Since the controversy began over Barack Obama’s failure to conclusively demonstrate his eligibility to serve as president, legislators in at least 15 states have attempted to pass bills that would clarify how a candidate must prove his constitutional eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, and all but one have been stalled, vetoed or shot down.

As WND has reported, there exists virtually no mechanism in the U.S. for investigating whether or not a presidential candidate meets the Constitution’s Article 2, Section 1, “natural-born citizen” requirement.

Last year, New Hampshire became the only state to successfully sign into law a bill clarifying eligibility requirements.

Not in the News

Written by Ed on June 22, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

The annual Martin Luther King observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the father of our country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.
I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this picture of the MLK Day rally in Columbia , South Carolina yesterday. This rally was sponsored by the NAACP and they said that they covered the statue because they “didn’t want to offend anyone”. Really? George Washington is the father of this nation. How is he offensive to anyone? Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the statue of Dr. King on President’s Day?

Of course, this display of anti-Americanism wasn’t covered at all by the national media, and the local paper in Columbia only ran a short had piece on it. It has been covered a little by the blog-world but I think the word needs to get out to the general public that this is what the NAACP is all about… militant and racist.

Microsoft Labels WebGL A Fundamental, Unacceptable Security Risk

Written by Ed on June 22, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

The past 18 months have seen a significant evolution in browser graphics. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera have all added support for such standards as OpenCL, HTML5, and Direct2D acceleration. (HTML5 isn’t a graphics standard, strictly speaking, but it allows the browser to handle certain activities that once required Flash plugins). Support for WebGL, a browser-friendly derivative of OpenGL, has been added to Firefox and Safari (with Chrome and Opera versions under development). Microsoft, however, has announced it won’t be including WebGL support, claiming that the standard is far too insecure to be safely deployed.

As it turns out, the software giant has good reason to be concerned. Ever since the introduction of Windows XP, Microsoft has progressively sandboxed video drivers and limited their ability to cause system crashes. Beginning with Windows Vista, video drivers were split into a kernel mode driver (very streamlined) and a user-space driver that handles virtually all of the heavy lifting.

WebGL doesn’t communicate with a GPU through a browser API; it addresses the graphics hardware directly. This undoubtedly reduces lag and improves performance, but it also bypasses all of the security features and remote access limitations that have been baked into modern browsers. Attacks written to take advantage of this fact can therefore waltz right into a system. Since GPU drivers aren’t written with security in mind (they’ve never needed to be), there’s very little to prevent this from occurring.

In theory, Intel, AMD, and Nvidia could harden the video drivers for their respective products and bake in watchdogs to monitor WebGL execution in real-time. In practice, this is highly unlikely. It would take a significant amount of time to create this sort of system and the programs in question would need to be coupled to specific browser versions. Updating a browser without simultaneously updating a browser could create a crack in the security foundation.

In its blog post, Microsoft also notes: “Users are not accustomed to ensuring they are up-to-date on the latest graphics card drivers, as would be required for them to have a secure web experience. In some cases where OEM graphics products are included with PCs, retail drivers are blocked from installing. OEMs often only update their drivers once per year, a reality that is just not compatible with the needs of a security update process.”

Although scarcely out of infancy, WebGL can handle some impressive rendering for a browser.

The company’s final reason for avoiding WebGL for the foreseeable future lies is that the security measures currently baked into WebGL (and there are some) are untested. “Modern operating systems and graphics infrastructure were never designed to fully defend against attacker-supplied shaders and geometry. Although mitigations such as ARB_robustness and the forthcoming ARB_robustness_2 may help, they have not proven themselves capable of comprehensively addressing the DoS threat. While traditionally client-side DoS is not a high severity threat, if this problem is not addressed holistically it will be possible for any web site to freeze or reboot systems at will. This is an issue for some important usage scenarios such as in critical infrastructure.”

Microsoft has particularly good reasons to take the stance it does. From 1997-2004 the words “Microsoft” and “Laughable Security” were interchangeable. A sizeable number Industry veterans from the 1996-2001 timeframe still experience terrifying flashbacks if they hear the name “Outlook Express.”

Beginning with Windows XP SP2, the company devoted enormous resources to hardening the OS, limiting available attack vectors, and warning users when their systems were vulnerable. Some of these efforts have been more effective than others, but Windows Firewall, Microsoft Security Essentials, XP2’s Security Center, and changes to how Windows Updates were handled have all been aimed at increasing OS security. Having spent the last seven years repairing its reputation, the company is scarcely going to want to risk another issue.

The other reason is related to IE’s market share. The median estimate for IE’s penetration across all tracking firms is 43.5 percent. While it no longer commands an absolute majority of the market, IE’s user base is still 1.5x larger than Firefox at 27.9 percent. That’s going to make the company doubly wary of potential security flaws–an issue with IE affects a much larger number of people.
