Verifying Identity In An Orwellian World

TheftGuest Article by Dave Webb

The problem is that fraud is everywhere. The credit card system is not working out. The other day Target was the latest victim of data base stealing.

I say we are going about this all wrong. Data bases are going to be stolen no matter what we place security with. Security doesn’t do it and never has. Credit Card identy theft is all over the place. I suggest that the hidden figures from the credit card industry are around 25-30% in the bad.

With numbers like this we have a nightmare both for the customer and the credit card companies.

Even if we catch the theft right away, people and credit card company are the victims. The average theft can be over a thousand and possibly as much as ten thousand dollars in some cases.

The first thing that needs to be done is put a limit on (Read More....)

Privacy Doesn’t Exist Anymore

Big Brother Is WatchingPrivacy doesn’t exist anymore

by Phil Mancini

Be careful what you say, and be careful what you do because the U.S. Government is watching. Is it insecurity or paranoia? Probably both. Now that we are being watched, and listened to – supposedly for our protection – does anyone feel safer? Most Americans never felt threatened until we found out about the National Security Administration surveillance efforts, which is funny because many of us now feel less safe. And it’s our government, not terrorists, that are responsible for this threat.

Invasion of privacy goes back a long way in American history. In colonial times, the British government began imposing on privacy rights in the mid 1700s with the Writs of Assistance, a law giving British customs officials the power to enter homes, warehouses, and shipping without the actual search warrant. The Writs were part of the Navigation Acts. These were a series of laws meant to control the American colonies, to outlaw smuggling imported goods so merchants could avoid taxes. Thanks to taxes on items like sugar, (Read More....)

Guided By the Heavy Hand of Government

by MN Gordon Economic Prism

Wednesday was one of the more hilarious days in recent memory.  President Obama gave a speech on the economy.  As a Reuters article put it, the speech “sought to inject momentum into his economic and domestic policy agenda.”

It didn’t.  Instead the speech reminded us what a jester the nation’s number one man is…

Certainly, there have been worse presidents.  Surely, there have been dumber presidents.  But never before has there been a president that was so doggone funny.

The mere glance at the man gives us a belly guffaw.  Yet when he opens his mouth we double over in sidesplitting laughter.  We howl in anticipation of the wicked punch line that never comes.  You know what we mean…

Obama’s reverse syntax and rhetoric is always (Read More....)

What Kind of World?

by survivingsurvivalism.com

You’d think the only thing happening in the world right now is the Trayvon Martin case.  Perhaps that’s the  intention of TPTB.  In the last few days of the Zimmerman trial, over 20 children were shot in Chicago, but no one really noticed.  I agree without argument or ceremony that both sides, Zimmerman and Trayvon, were in the wrong.  That said, we need to move on to equally or more pressing issues and avoid the theatrics designed to distract us.

Issues that are at  least if not more pressing include

Bernanke and the FED admitting that dollar collapse would be imminent as soon as the FED stops pumping “QE Infinity”.  This (Read More....)

Privacy, And Why It Matters

*Guest article by JV*

Assistant Dear Leader Nancy Pelosi has told us explicitly- “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory.” And who better to inventory it, than the compassionate, caring, DMV-like state! And I just can’t wait until we have those Red Guard-like “self-criticism struggle sessions!” I’m sure that will fix things in a jiffy!

“If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know,” Google non-Einstein CEO Eric Schmidt said in 2009, “maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.” Really, Eric? How’s that prostate health of your going along? And tell us what you REALLY think of those Kate Upton pix on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Y’know…. what you really think. Anything else about your health or, um…. marital and/or sex life you care to let us all know about? If not, “maybe you shouldn’t be doing ‘it’ in the first place,” right? BTW, care to tell us how you ran Novell into the ground, Mr. Schmidt? Full details, please! Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, says (Read More....)

July 24th, 2026: Confessions of a Former “Yes We Can” Chanter

Guest Post: J Vanne 

It is the slightly stunted growth of Johnny and Susie that bothers me the most. Heck, they’re just children. I don’t mind – at least not a lot – the constant waiting in long lines for our rations. I know everyone has to do it. Or at least those of us that are not politically connected. I heard a line the other day from an elderly man who had escaped from Communist Poland in the 1980s that struck me as sadly applicable – “When socialism comes to the Sahara, there will even be a shortage of sand.” Here in California, I don’t think we need to worry about a shortage of sand – but perhaps everything else. Of course, it is only temporary, they keep (Read More....)

5 Ways Your Online Reputation Could Interfere with You Getting That Loan

We all know how having a good online reputation is important, but did you know that it can actually affect your chances at getting a job, a loan, an apartment rental, and a myriad of other sorts of things? Well, it can, and it does. In fact, nowadays your online reputation is just as important as your credit score.

Who do you associate with online?

You may have a solid online reputation, but what about those you associate with? When getting a loan, banks may look at your social history and see just how trustworthy your social media “friends” are. If they don’t happen to have good standings with banks and payment histories, the bank (Read More....)
