Windows 10 is amazing. Windows 10 is fantastic. Windows 10 is glorious. Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 is everything Windows 8 should have been, addressing nearly all of the major problems users had with Microsoft's previous-generation platform in one fell swoop.

But there's something you should know: As you read this article from your newly upgraded PC, Windows 10 is also spying on nearly everything you do. read more

Welcome to New World Next Week -- the video series from Corbett Report and Media Monarchy that covers some of the most important developments in open source intelligence news

In totalitarian regimes -- a.k.a. police states -- where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind.

Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned -- discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred -- inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism. read more

[The] fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected. This is bizarre stuff, folks, but welcome to the world of international trade deals. read more


"you are being tracked in one way or another"

this is true, but there are ways to stem the flow, at least a little bit.

use firefox with ublock and ghostery extensions.

any site with the usual social media modules -- facebook, twitter, and so on -- can be monitored by at least facebook ("datr" cookie), and almost certainly google and others.

for maximum keks I keep ghostery's blocking log active at all times, and there are usually almost a half-dozen different services that are blocked (although more than one usually comes from facebook and google).

On DR pages, feedburner, google adsense, google analytics, and quantcast are denied. I've seen more than twice as many denied on other pages.

yeah but...



there won't be a happening, but rather a gradual and ongoing fattening, and then the collapse, when "idiocracy" becomes a documentary film.

fat facts from the stateofobesity.org

Obesity-related medical treatment costs between $147 and $210 billion a year, or nearly 10 percent of all annual medical spending (based on 2006 data). The majority of the spending is generated from treating obesity-related diseases such as diabetes.1 Of the $147 billion, Medicare and Medicaid are responsible for $61.8 billion. Medicare and Medicaid spending would be 8.5 percent and 11.8 percent lower, respectively, in the absence of obesity.2 Obese people spend 42 percent more on healthcare costs than healthyweight people.3
Childhood obesity alone is responsible for $14.1 billion in direct costs.4

nobody wants to address the fact that hams have become the new normal.

snorting some blow off a hooker's ass is an egregious offense to which the plausibly-accountable must answer, but what about the UK pedophilia ring? anyone sorry for that, aside from the now-deceased jimmy saville?

how about the banksters? anyone feel sorry for them with their sudden rash of suicides?

social justice warriors (SJWs) aren't about egalitarianism or meritocracy.

they don't want equal opportunities; rather, they want to legislate equal outcomes.

they're all about identity politics and political correctness ueber alles.

they're also out to invert what they term the progressive stack; alternatively, they are participating in the oppression olympics.

these people aren't of the "I don't agree with what you're saying, but I'd protect your right to say it" variety.

these are people of the "it offends my fee-fees so it must be censored -- because you're oppressing me!1! -- variety.
