Welcome to Egypt: San Francisco railway shuts off cell phone service to silence protesters posted 08/14/2011, 10:47 AM (San Francisco Bay View)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The San Francisco Bay Area, historic birthplace of the Free Speech movement and a pioneer in the digital age, is now apparently the first place in the United States to have had its electronic communications deliberately disabled in order to pre-empt a political protest. As an act of prior restraint against potential protesters’ free expression, the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency cut power to the underground mobile phone antennas within the BART system for several hours on Aug. 11, thereby denying tens of thousands of evening commuters access to broadband internet networks, telephone service and even 911 calls.

Civil liberties organizations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as well as the hacktivist group known as Anonymous, are now vociferously objecting. Without even realizing how premature it was to smirk and brag to the corporate media about having disabled the antennas after service was cut, BART appears to have stepped in another big pile of shit as it so often tends to do. Besides the public shaming it is now receiving across the internet in an ever-growing number of articles and op-eds, FCC, legal and hacktivist repercussions for the agency may be yet to come. The protest BART hyperventilated about never even happened.

At first, when called out on the phone service shutdown last night, BART police Lt. Andy Alkire bragged that disabling the antennas was “a great tool to utilize for this specific purpose.” BART PR spokesperson Linton Johnson was seen smirking about the service cut on television newscasts – when he wasn’t trying to shift responsibility for the decision o

[Category: Commentary]
Let’s assume you’re the owner of a business and you employ five people. One day you find out that one of your employees is threatening people to make sales. You didn’t approve of this tactic and quickly move on this information. You call in the employee and address the situation. You explain to them that threatening people is not how you conduct business and even though it might produce larger sales in the short term, it will ultimately destr... (more)

How Statism Is a Sickness, and Not Just a Destructive Political System posted 08/14/2011, 10:47 AM (Scott Lazarowitz)
[Category: Commentary]
From the recent debt ceiling hysterics, we have seen just how dysfunctional America is now, as the Establishment satisfies its short-term, immediate-gratification needs at the expense of the people and future generations. Every subsequent day is increasingly depressing and discouraging, with one news item after another how the controlling rulers in Washington are just rearranging the... (more)

Feds Push for Licenses to Drive Farm Tractors posted 08/14/2011, 10:46 AM (JS Online)
[Category: Economy]
Tim Strobel has been driving a tractor for 20 years, so he's a bit puzzled that federal officials are kicking around an idea that could ultimately force him - and anyone else operating farm machinery - to get a commercial driver's license.

Yes, the same kind of license that interstate truckers must have to operate their rigs.
