Honduras suspends civil liberties as ousted President calls for resistance

(Exhaustive detail may be found at Democracy Now! ) As Greg Grandin, professor of Latin American history at NYU puts it, “The Honduran military is effectively a subsidiary of the United States government.

5 ways to cut the cost of using a mobile abroad

1. Text, don’t talk Try to avoid calling if you can – it could cost £1 a minute to call England from America. It’s expensive to receive calls, too. But it is free to receive a text and should only cost about 50p to send. Sending too many texts back and forth, however, is not a good idea. James Parker, mobiles manager at moneysupermarket.com, says: “A quick call can be cheaper than a series of texts.” So whichever mode of contact you are going to use, make it brief. [more...]

AEI Interns’ Transcripts in Date Order: Their Own First Draft of History

First of all, I want to reemphasize everything Laurie just said. This is not a new threat, and this is not a threat we did not know about. Saddam Hussein has, in many ways, openly dreamed of mass death in the United States. He has shared his dreams with his nation and the world many times. We also know he has actively planned to do so many times, and Laurie’s book is a rather convincing argument that he is active and successfully implemented plans to do so as well. [more...]

No surprise here; FBI and likely other federal agencies abuse the use of National Security Letters. Support the JUSTICE Act unless the Republicans can do better.

I have been railing against the Patriot Act (which is anything but) since its passage and I physically protested same back when AG Ashcroft visited Salt Lake City in circa 2003. Numerous provisions of that Act signed into law by the SOB (Son Of a Bush) were and remain egregious.
