Penn. activist facing 8 years in prison after videotaping officers outside courthouse posted 07/01/2010, 11:59 PM (Photography is Not a Crime)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
George Donnelly, the Pennsylvania videographer who was arrested last week for videotaping federal officers in front of an Allentown courthouse, is facing eight years in prison for his deed.

He is specifically being accused of striking one of the officers.

Anybody who has seen the two previous videos where Donnelly was confronted by federal officers in front of a courthouse will find these charges hard to believe.

After all, Donnelly has a tendency to remain courteous even when getting threatened with violence.

Nevertheless, the federal government is charging him with assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain United States Government officers or employees, which carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison.

The evidence, of course, lies in the videotape they confiscated from him. We’ll be lucky if that ever makes the light of day.

When contacted by Photography is Not a Crime today, Donnelly said he was not commenting about his case.

But Libertadedia, described as the libertarian encyclopedia, offers detailed information obtained from court records.

The site states he has been subjected to the following conditions under house arrest, even though he has not been convicted:
  • Bail in the amount of $50,000
  • Defendant shall submit to random drug testing as directed by pretrial services
  • Defendant shall undergo drug/alcohol treatment if necessary, as determined by pretrial services
  • Defendant shall submit to electronic monitoring

Colleges to act as DMCA police kicking students off the internet for "illegal" file sharing posted 07/01/2010, 11:59 PM (CNET News)

Frat parties and free music have been among the perks of attending college in the United States during the past decade. But now the days of using fat campus bandwidth to download movies and music via file-sharing networks appear to be coming to an end.

Thursday is the deadline for colleges and universities that receive Title IV federal aid to have implemented antipiracy procedures on their campuses as part of the Higher Edu

The Irish arm of telcoms operator O2 has begun censoring websites in the region, with image sharing site Imgur seemingly the first portal identified for blockage.

Talk has been rumbling of behind-the-scenes government negotiations regarding the introduction of an official state policy that would see websites accused of hosting malicious content or infringing copyright blocked from public access.

62% Say Constitution Should Be Left Alone posted 07/01/2010, 11:52 PM (Rasmussen Reports)

Most Americans say don’t mess with the U.S. Constitution, even though a plurality still believes it does not restrict the government enough.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Adults shows that, when asked their views on changing the Constitution, 62% say it should be left alone. Twenty-four percent (24%) believe minor changes are needed, while only seven percent (7%) see a need for major changes.

"39% believe the current document does not put enough restrictions on what the government can do."

As Thoreau said, "That government is best which governs least." ...and that's why the best government is no government at all!

The "services" government provides are all a laughingstock joke, they could be replaced in the free market practically overnight with all the creative entrepreneurs we have in the world!

Just look at how fast the innovations on the internet take place, from social networking to tweeting, to all these file sharing sites, to Rapidshare and Megaupload, to Reddit, Digg and StumbleUpon! Imagine if that creative spirit was put to work providing services like courts and protection agencies!

At the very least allow people to compete in these industries! Repeal all these non-compete government-monopoly-enforcing laws and you'd see the best government the world has ever seen. Just as every few months out comes the best new computer or cell phone the world has ever seen!

Free-markets work! Coercive government monopolies do not! - Chris, InfoLib

Pittsburgh's Rise from Ashes posted 07/01/2010, 11:58 PM (Jeffrey A. Tucker)

Pittsburgh is a town that makes me want to rhapsodize like a Randian. Its skyline, the materials and shapes that make up the structure of the city, celebrate man's creative genius in every way. It is more beautiful than the most cultivated garden because it is a picture of order out of chaos and all directed toward the betterment of society.

In capitalism's structure of production, the city once stood between the first producers of raw materials somewhere in the moun

Financial Reform Bill to use TARP Money posted 07/01/2010, 11:58 PM (MyBankTracker.com)

Forced to remove a lucrative bank tax from its sweeping financial reform bill, U.S. Congress is turning to the Troubled Asset Relief Plan to help fund the new financial regulations.

Reuters reported this week that U.S. lawmakers, who could not come to an agreement on whether to include a bank tax that would generate an estimated $17.9 billion, decided instead to pull money from a pool created as part of the TARP bailout fund. Pulling money from the TARP fund would give the governm

What a joke, just because a company (or group of companies) says they're going to charge so and so a price doesn't mean consumers need to buy it. It's not like an LCD is some essential good which every growing child needs to survive. If the people thought the prices were too high they wouldn't buy them, it's that simple. The same can't be said for the "products" and "services" government produces. - Chris
