D.C.: The lawyer capital of the world (One in 12 residents is a lawyer) posted 10/31/2011, 11:59 PM (Washington Examiner)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
One is probably sitting near you when you Metro into work. And eating lunch at the table next to you. And one, if not many, likely lives on your block on Capitol Hill or Georgetown.

Sure, D.C. is the mecca for politicians. But it's a more clandestine army of professionals that defines the District -- lawyers.

An astounding one in 12 District residents -- by far the highest rate nationwide -- is a lawyer, according to American Bar Association and census figures. Put another way: The nation's capital accounts for just one-fifth of 1 percent of the U.S. population but one in every 25 of its lawyers.

[...]Coupled with the cocoon of a massive federal work force, an abundance of litigators has catapulted the Washington region to the wealthiest in the nation, where the typical household banks nearly $85,000 a year.

According to a recent survey by the National Association for Law Placement, the median salary for an associate lawyer in the Washington region with between one and eight years of experience was $186,250, eclipsing the national median by $63,000 a year.

[Category: Commentary]
The Occupy movement continues to spring up across America, and the authorities are taking notice.

The attack on protesters in Oakland by a large and heavily-armed police force received particular attention, with one protester struck in the head and severely injured by a police projectile. Video footage shows the protester, Scott Olsen, standing still as projectiles were fired. Then, while Olsen lay on the ground bleeding, a cop threw a stun grenade into a group of protesters who c

Cops Search House For Stolen Handgun, Find Nothing, Seize $42,000 Cash Instead posted 10/31/2011, 11:59 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
The Patriot-News reports:
In August 2010, while searching for an officer’s stolen handgun, Harrisburg police seized tens of thousands of dollars in cash from Antoine Black’s home on Logan Street.

Black is claiming in a federal lawsuit that the cops should have left that money alone, especially since they didn’t find the missing gun in his house or charge him with a crime.

He is arguing that the seizure of the cash, which authorities unsuccessfull

16 Reasons Why Mitt Romney Would Be A Really, Really Bad President posted 10/31/2011, 11:56 PM (EndoftheAmericanDream)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
At this point, it appears very likely that Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican nominee for president in 2012. He has raised far more money than any of the other candidates, he is leading or is near the lead in all of the early states, the mainstream media have anointed him as the frontrunner and a number of recent polls show that most Republicans fully expect Romney to win the nomination. So will ... (more)

Oo-rah posted 10/31/2011, 11:59 PM (Fred Reed)
[Category: Commentary]
I read frequently among the lesserly neuronal of the supposed honor of soldiers, of the military virtues of courage, loyalty, and uprightness – that in an age of moral decomposition only the military adhere to principles, and that our troops in places like Afghanistan nobly make sacrifices to preserve our freedoms and democracy. Is not all of this nonsense?

Honor? A soldier is just a nationally certified hit-man, perfectly amoral. When he joins the military he agrees

Middle East Propaganda 101 posted 10/31/2011, 11:56 PM (Glenn Greenwald)
[Category: Commentary]
When it comes to American propaganda about the Middle East, this New York Times article — detailing U.S. plans to bolster its influence in the region after it “withdraws” from Iraq — is a masterpiece. Here’s the crux of the new American strategy and its ostensible rationale:
With an eye on the threat of a belligerent Iran, the administ... (more)

Do The Authors Of The Felony Streaming Bills Even Know What The Details Of Their Own Bills Mean? posted 10/31/2011, 11:50 PM (Techdirt)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
After Justin Bieber himself pointed out how silly the various bills in both the Senate and the House (S.978 and SOPA, respectively) concerning making streaming a felony were, the office of the key sponsor behind S.978, Senator Amy Klobuchar's, insisted that Justin Bieber didn't understand the bill.

[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
Many internet users in the United States have watched with horror as countries like France and Britain have proposed or instituted so-called “three strikes” laws, which cut off internet access to those accused of repeated acts of copyright infringement. Now the U.S. has its own version of this kind of law, and it is arguably much worse:

[Category: Science/Technology]
It was hailed as the scientific study that ended the global warming debate once and for all – the research that, in the words of its director, ‘proved you should not be a sceptic, at least not any longer’.

Professor Richard Muller, of Berkeley University in California, and his colleagues from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperatures project team (BEST) claimed to have shown that the planet has warmed by almost a degree centigrade since 1950 and is warming continually.

A Sister's Eulogy for Steve Jobs posted 10/31/2011, 11:47 PM (New York Times)
[Category: Science/Technology]
I grew up as an only child, with a single mother. Because we were poor and because I knew my father had emigrated from Syria, I imagined he looked like Omar Sharif. I hoped he would be rich and kind and would come into our lives (and our not yet furnished apartment) and help us. Later, after I’d met my father, I tried to believe he’d changed his number and left no forwarding address because he was an idealistic revolutionary, plotting a new world for the Arab people.
