It is time to end the GOP primaries

"Rick Santorum is so anti-gay, he doesn’t even want pirates touching their own booty.” –Jay Leno

“Rick Santorum is so conservative that when he goes to KFC, he only orders the right wings.” –Jay Leno

Thank God . . . . Romney sweeps Michigan and Arizona

  • It is time to end these primaries, get behind Romney and focus on the naked Communist in the White House.

By Gary;

Proof at last that there is a God.  Rick Santorum lost the Arizona and Michigan primaries.

Simply, the naked Communist Comrade Obama must be defeated if there is to be any chance to save what little is left of the Republic of the Founders.

Rick Santorum is a fucking joke.  Eight weeks ago the polls showed 96% of Republicans rejected Santorum.  He was polling 4%.  Getting 4% is in the margin of error of many polls.  His real support could have been ZERO.

Insanity   -   The American political system is insane.  No place in the world would any political party select as their leader in the election a candidate with nearly zero national support.  But our stupid system allows near unknowns (like Obama) to become President with control of atomic weapons.

Only Romney has the real national organization that is needed to take on the White House Communist.

Maybe we can kill off Santorum next week on Super Tuesday.  The corrupt whore Gingrich is almost gone.  I was hoping Ron Paul would do better.  But in the war of ideas seeing Paul pull huge audiences of young people at colleges is encouraging for the future.

In a final wrap, Michigan's precincts showed Romney at 41 percent and Santorum at 38 percent. Paul was winning 12 percent of the vote to 7 percent for Gingrich.  In Arizona Romney had 48 percent, Santorum 26, Gingrich 16 percent and Paul 8 percent.

On to Super Tuesday.  The time has come.  Republicans, let's end this primary now and focus on the Commie bastard in the White House.

Corporate ownership of your food

Justice is nearly dead in America.
What passes for "justice" in the United States is really a war of the pocketbook.  The Billionaire Cartels with super deep pockets and government attorneys backed by endless taxpayer's money control the court system.  The little guy looking for fairness might as well drop his pants, bend over, spread his cheeks and take what little shred of justice the Elites choose to give him.

Fucked in America
Judge sides with Billionaire Agri-Business corporation and denies small farmers their day in court.

  • Corporate America uses its billions of dollars to bully small family farmers.
  • Nearly 1,000 farmers have had charges brought against them. 
  • Seed drift and pollen drift from genetically engineered crops often contaminate neighboring fields.  Monsanto then legally bullies their competitors for having their seeds on the neighbor's lands.
  • Courts fail again and again to protect the little guy against the corporations with deep pockets. 

There is almost no justice in modern day America.

The court system favors giant deep-pocket billionaire corporations and the government itself against simple common people.  Unless you have millions to defend yourself in court you are royally fucked.  What passes for "justice" is simply court rulings going to the highest bidder.

On February 24, Judge Naomi Buchwald handed down a ruling on a motion to dismiss in the case of Organic Seed Growers and Trade Assn et al v. Monsanto after hearing oral argument on January 31st in Federal District Court in Manhattan.

Her ruling to dismiss the case brought against Monsanto on behalf of organic farmers, seed growers and agricultural organizations representing farmers and citizens was met with great disappointment by the plaintiffs reports Infowars.

Monsanto’s history of aggressive investigations and lawsuits brought against farmers in America have been a source of concern for organic and non-GMO farmers since Monsanto’s first lawsuit brought against a farmer in the mid-90′s. Since then, 144 farmers have had lawsuits brought against them by Monsanto for alleged violations of  their patented seed technology.

Monsanto has brought charges against more than 700 additional farmers who have settled out-of-court rather than face Monsanto’s belligerent litigious actions. Many of these farmers claim to not have had the intention to grow or save seeds that contain Monsanto’s patented genes. Seed drift and pollen drift from genetically engineered crops often contaminate neighboring fields. If Monsanto’s seed technology is found on a farmer’s land without contract they can be found liable for patent infringement.

“Family farmers need the protection of the court,” said Maine organic seed farmer Jim Gerritsen, President of lead plaintiff OSGATA.  "Family farmers deserve our day in court and this flawed ruling will not deter us from continuing to seek justice.”
A copy of Judge Buchwalds ruling is located here.
The plaintiffs brought this suit against Monsanto to seek judicial protection from such lawsuits and challenge the validity of Monsanto’s patents on seeds.

SHOCK: Islamists take over British town

Coming to a town near you? 
Buffalo, London, Minneapolis, Paris, Newark, Rome,  Philadelphia, Berlin, Detroit, Madrid, St. Louis, Athens, Topeka . . . . .

Video from Eric Dondero,  (Libertarian Republican)

A young documentary producer returns to her hometown of Luton, in the north of England to find a very changed political climate and culture. In just a few short years, Muslims have almost entirely taken over her town.

Watch as the Muslims tell her to cover herself, and that she and her fellow native Brits can "burn in Hell."

A Western Death Wish

Your Editor finds it interesting how the educated elites of the West have a Death Wish for their own nations.

They hate the countries they were born in.  They hate their own cultures.

Then in an act of self-hate induced masturbation they pass laws importing countless millions of foreigners to re-populate the homeland in the image of some third world craphole.

In this "modern" world the Elites say the Western cultures of Greece, Holland, Great Britain and the United States have no right to exist.  That millions of Muslims MUST BE IMPORTED in some sick Leftist fuck's wet-dream of social justice and "fairness" . . . . . and if you dare to question the "wisdom" of your Leftist Masters you are branded an evil racist.

Welcome to the Death of the West.

Big Brother Government "Internet Inspectors"

Big Brother in Canada attacks Internet Freedom

  • Internet Service Providers to be forced to help spy for the government.
  • Government to act without a search warrant.
  • Orwellian "Government Inspectors" can enter any telecommunications service and examine any document.

The jack-booted march of bi-partisan Fascist Big Brother never ends.  Now the so-called "Conservative" government of Canada is trying on their own brown shirts and jack-boots.

Brand new Canadian legislation would allow police, intelligence and competition bureau officers access to Internet subscriber information -- including name, address, telephone number, email address and Internet Protocol address -- without a warrant.

It would also require telecommunication service providers to have the technical capability to enable police and spies to intercept messages and conversations.
Orwellian Internet inspectors
Among other things, the bill forces ISPs to install surveillance technology and software to enable monitoring of phone and internet traffic. Section 34 is there to make sure ISPs comply. So what, exactly, does it say?

Essentially, it says that government agents may enter an ISP when they wish, without a warrant, and demand to see absolutely everything — including all data anywhere on the network — and to copy it all reports Terry Milewski of CBC News.

First, Section 33 tells us that, "The Minister may designate persons or classes of persons as inspectors for the purposes of the administration and enforcement of this Act." So we're not talking about police officers necessarily. We're talking about anyone the minister chooses — or any class of persons.

Next, Section 34 spells out the sweeping powers of these "inspectors." And, if they sound Orwellian, welcome to the world of Section 34.

The inspectors may "enter any place owned by, or under the control of, any telecommunications service provider in which the inspector has reasonable grounds to believe there is any document, information, transmission apparatus, telecommunications facility or any other thing to which this Act applies."

The inspector, says the bill, may "examine any document, information or thing found in the place and open or cause to be opened any container or other thing." He or she may also "use, or cause to be used, any computer system in the place to search and examine any information contained in or available to the system."

You read that right. The inspector gets to see "any" information that's in or "available to the system." Yours, mine, and everyone else's emails, phone calls, web surfing, shopping, you name it. But, if that sounds breath-taking enough, don't quit now because the section is still not done.

The inspector is also empowered to copy anything that strikes his or her fancy. The inspector may "reproduce, or cause to be reproduced, any information in the form of a printout, or other intelligible output, and remove the printout, or other output, for examination or copying."

Finally, note that such all-encompassing searches require no warrant, and don't even have to be in the context of a criminal investigation. Ostensibly, the purpose is to ensure that the ISP is complying with the requirements of the act — but nothing in the section restricts the inspector to examining or seizing only information bearing upon that issue. It's still "any" information whatsoever.

The insanity of Afghanistan

The insanity of Afghanistan goes on and on and on . . . . . .

  • Even our Afghan "friends" dislike us.
  • Countless billions of dollars are stolen by the warlords.
  • NATO has given the green light for massive opium production.
  • Only the arms industry is winning the war.

By Gary;

Let's cut through the Bullshit . . . . The insane Afghans hate us.  Our Afghan allies even murder our soldiers.  They don't want us there.  That sounds good to me.  Time to get the Hell out of that 4th world shit-hole.

FACT  #1)   The political hacks and ex-military talking heads on TV have lied to you from day one about Afghanistan.  Anyone with a brain who has studied military history knows there was never any way to control a huge nation the size of Afghanistan with the tiny army we sent in. . . . yes TINY.

  • The British Empire was not able to control the countryside in the American Revolution.
  • The French Army was not able to control the countryside in Mexico, Algeria or Indochina.
  • American and allied troops could not control the countryside of South Vietnam. 

But our political leaders told us there would be no problem providing security in Afghanistan.  Stupid people believe crap like that.  Those who know how to think recognize the lies for what they are.

'Koran burning US worst PR disaster in Afghan war'

FACT  #2)   It is not politically correct to talk about it, but Muslims do not like non-believers.  Period.  Given a chance they have eagerly murdered Christians, Jews and others throughout the Islamic world.  It will be a cold day in Hell when Islamists apologize for burning down Christian churches in Egypt and Pakistan and the attacks on Hindus inside Pakistan.

Just try to build a brand new Mormon Temple, Synagogue, Hindu Temple or Christian Church in newly "liberated" Libya, or in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt or even Turkey.

FACT  #3)   One reason the government gave for the Afghan war was to 'fight them over there rather then here at home.'  That was a totally Bullshit argument.

The borders of the United States are wide open to millions upon millions of people simply walking into the nation at will.  Those strolling across our borders are a combination of workers, terrorists, families and criminals.  Why is our army located deep in Central Asia instead of protecting our own borders from invasion?

It is also the legal policy of the Federal government to import Muslims into the U.S. from Africa and Asia.  It is all politically correctness gone mad.

Add in the interesting wrinkle that NATO is encouraging the production of Afghan opium production.  See our article  THE FEDERALIST - "What Drug War? NATO increased Afghanistan opium production."

Afghanistan.  The sooner we are out the better.

The Second Anglo-Afghan War of 1878.
The British Empire fought three wars in Afghanistan with nothing to show for it except
dead bodies and a more wealthy arms industry.

It's the end of the world as we know it, Part II

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

(EDITOR'S NOTE  -  Judging by the stories in the news, I am firmly convinced we have reached the End of Days.  Human beings are fucking idiots.  We are doomed.)

Story #1)  Police used McDonald's hamburgers to lure naked man off tower

Police were able to lure a naked man who spent hours atop a downtown Los Angeles radio tower with McDonald's hamburgers.

The man climbed to the top of the tower Wednesday night. At one point, police sources said, he asked for hamburgers from McDonald's. Officials complied, and he agreed to come down after eating his meal.

The 45-year-old Arizona resident was uninjured. It was unclear why he climbed the structure, which is part of a city personnel building just east of the downtown skyline.

He removed items of clothing after he began scaling the tower about 4 p.m.

"He started taking his clothes off as he climbed," Officer Karen Rayner told The Times.

Long Hoang, 29, of San Jose wears cardio mask and weighted vest by CrossFit after jog. A postal customer thought he looked suspicious and called in the bomb squad.

Story #2)  Bad idea.  Man mails package while wearing gas mask and 'body armor'

Word to the wise: Maybe it's not the smartest thing to jog in what looks like a gas mask and body armor, and then jam a package in a post office box.

It could touch off what happened Tuesday at the busy San Jose post office on Lundy Avenue: a full-scale police response, complete with the bomb squad and a robot.

But San Jose police said the suspicious-looking jogger seen fidgeting with a package at a drop-off box was only working out in hard-core, albeit odd-looking, exercise gear.

"The guy said he was wearing a cardio mask," said Sgt. Jason Dwyer. "It was his cardio day, and he was trying to lose weight."

That's not what a post office customer thought when the man in the weird mask and vest was stuffing a package in a blue mail box about 12:30 p.m. The customer called police, and in a flash, the post office was on lockdown until 4:30 p.m., with 150 employees and customers tucked away in the back.

The San Jose police bomb squad, the Fire Department's hazardous materials unit and the postal inspector descended on a normally quiet strip of North San Jose. A robot detonated the package, which turned out, police said, to be a bunch of calendars.

"My friends kept messaging me, Is this you? Is this you?" recounted Long Hoang, who lives near the post office and is a student at Cal State East Bay in Hayward.

A dwarf who was picked up by a complete stranger then tossed onto the ground Photo:  BNPS.co.uk

Story #3)  Dwarf left paralyzed after being thrown by drunken Rugby fan

Police are hunting a drunken reveler wanted for random dwarf tossing after a man was left partially paralyzed following an assault at a pub during a rugby match.

Martin Henderson - celebrating his 37th birthday with friends - was thrown into the air by a hooded thug in a copycat of the shamed England rugby star Mike Tindall's behavior in the summer.

Tindall was kicked out of the Elite Player Squad and fined £25,000 after a Rugby Football Union investigation into his drunken night in a dwarf-themed Queenstown bar.

In the copycat incident a month later, Henderson suffered damage to nerve tissue in his spine causing his legs to go numb after landing on his back on the pavement.

Officers have now launched an investigation into the incident.

Henderson condemned the hooded stranger after the cruel prank left him confined to a wheelchair.  He said: "From what I remember, there was only one person involved but it was very scary as I didn't know what was going on.

"I guess I was an easy target and the only reason I was picked on was because I am small.

"People's attitudes to me when I go out can be pretty cruel. Most are OK but you get the odd idiot who will make fun and start laughing at me.

"You just have to ignore it but this is the first time I have been picked up and thrown about."

Porn in Space

Space Capitalism  -  That's one small step for porn . . . . .

  • Playboy and Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic plan strip club in space.
  • New meaning given to the term "Heavenly Bodies."
  • Another victory for private enterprise and capitalism over socialism.

It would certainly be the club all men would want to go to.
Playboy have teamed up with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic in designing a futuristic gentleman's club that literally is, 'out of this world' reports the UK Daily Mail.
In the March issue of the iconic magazine, readers will be treated to a sci-fi themed depiction of fun and games aboard a space station.

Live Science reports that the imagined super-club features a zero-gravity dance club, a casino featuring 'human roulette' and a restaurant for fine dining as just some of the amenities envisioned by artist Thomas Tenery.

Writing on the science website, Playboy's editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said: 'As Virgin Galactic gets closer to becoming the world's first commercial space line, Playboy is eagerly pondering the creation of the ultimate intergalactic entertainment destination.

'This heaven-in-the-heavens will exceed starry-eyed travelers' wildest dreams, and guests will truly experience a party that's out of this world.'
Virgin Galactic have long-term plans to become the first passenger service that travels into space and is currently selling tickets at $200,000 for a seat on its first craft the SpaceShipTwo.

'The Playboy Club in space will be on a station in orbit, like a cruise ship,' Playboy writers A.J. Baime and Jason Harper explain in a description.

POLICE STATE - Father of 4 year old girl strip-searched because she drew a picture of a gun

Arrested Jessie Sansone was arrested at his daughter's school after the 4-year-old drew a picture of a gun.   (Peter Lee, Record Staff)

Big Brother Police State
Father arrested because his 4 year old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.

  • Fascist police strip-searched the father and threw him in jail.
  • The Mother and 3 children were dragged before Family and Children’s Services for interrogation.

The jack boots of Fascism are in full goose-step.

A Kitchener, Canada father was arrested by police at his children’s’ school, hauled him down to the station and strip-searched.  All because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.

“I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” said Jessie Sansone, 26, reports The Record.

“I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”

The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They said they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone’s house that children had access to.

“From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child,” said Alison Scott, executive director of Family and Children’s Services.

Police officers went to his home, where his wife and 15-month-old child were waiting for his return.  They made his wife come to the police station while the other three children were taken to Family and Children’s Services to be interviewed.

“Nobody was given any explanation,” said his wife, Stephanie Squires. “I didn’t know why he was being arrested.

“He had absolutely no idea what this was even about. I just kept telling them. ‘You’re making a mistake.’ ”

At the police station the father kept asking questions. He was given a blanket and told he would appear before a judge in the morning to post bail.

“I was getting pretty scared at that point,” Sansone said. “It seemed like I was actually being charged at this point.”  He was forced to remove his clothes for a full strip search.

Several hours later, a detective apologized and said he was being released with no charges, Sansone said.

Terminator Robots - War without Warriors

"Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead."   - - - - Kyle Reese

Don't you just love it when Science Fiction meets Science fact.
Step #1 is here.  Killer Terminator drones are being "controlled" by nerds in far away bunkers while they slaughter dozens, hundreds or even thousands of people.  The Nerds may even be civilians who could press the kill button when the military is not watching.
Step #2 is coming fast.   Killer Terminator drones and tanks will be automatic, self-thinking machines.  It is in the works.

Just one question?   -   Are people fucking stupid or what?  Does anyone read Science Fiction?  or watch any movies?  The government is run by fucking lunatics.
Building Terminators.  Are
people fucking morons or what?

The Navy's newest drone being tested near Chesapeake Bay stretches the boundaries of technology: It's designed to land on the deck of an aircraft carrier, one of aviation's most difficult maneuvers.

What's even more remarkable is that it will do that not only without a pilot in the cockpit, but without a pilot at all.

The X-47B marks a paradigm shift in warfare, one that is likely to have far-reaching consequences. With the drone's ability to be flown autonomously by onboard computers, it could usher in an era when death and destruction can be dealt by machines operating semi-independently.
Funded under a $635.8-million contract awarded by the Navy in 2007, the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System Carrier Demonstration program has grown in cost to an estimated $813 million reports the Los Angeles Times.
Last February, the first X-47B had its maiden flight from Edwards Air Force Base, where it continued testing until last month when it was carried from the Mojave Desert to Naval Air Station Patuxent River in southern Maryland. It is there that the next stage of the demonstration program begins.

P.W. Singer: Military robots and the future of war

Although humans would program an autonomous drone's flight plan and could override its decisions, the prospect of heavily armed aircraft screaming through the skies without direct human control is unnerving to many.
"Lethal actions should have a clear chain of accountability," said Noel Sharkey, a computer scientist and robotics expert. "This is difficult with a robot weapon. The robot cannot be held accountable. So is it the commander who used it? The politician who authorized it? The military's acquisition process? The manufacturer, for faulty equipment?"
Aerial drones now piloted remotely have become a central weapon for the CIA and U.S. military in their campaign against terrorists in the Middle East. The Pentagon has gone from an inventory of a handful of drones before Sept. 11, 2001, to about 7,500 drones, about one-third of all military aircraft.
All military services are moving toward greater automation with their robotic systems. Robotic armed submarines could one day stalk enemy waters, and automated tanks could engage soldiers on the battlefield.
"More aggressive robotry development could lead to deploying far fewer U.S. military personnel to other countries, achieving greater national security at a much lower cost and most importantly, greatly reduced casualties," aerospace pioneer Simon Ramo, who helped develop the intercontinental ballistic missile, wrote in his new book, "Let Robots Do the Dying."

Terminator Robots  -  Coming soon to a battlefield near you!
The DARPA legged Squad Support System (LS3)

Today's dismounted warfighter can be saddled with more than 100 pounds of gear, resulting in physical strain, fatigue, and degraded performance. To help alleviate the impact of excess weight on troops, DARPA is developing a highly mobile, semi-autonomous four-legged robot, the Legged Squad Support System (LS3). LS3 includes onboard sensors to perceive obstacles in its environment and path-planning capabilities to avoid them. 

The LS3 prototype recently completed its first outdoor assessment, demonstrating mobility by climbing and descending a hill and exercising its perception and autonomous follow-the-leader capabilities.

Robotic Death from the Skies.
The X-47B drone, above, marks a paradigm shift in warfare, one that is likely to have far-reaching consequences. With the drone’s ability to be flown autonomously by onboard computers, it could usher in an era when death and destruction can be dealt by machines operating semi-independently.

Marxism marches in California

The People's Republic of California is working hard to see how many
businesses they can drive away from the state.

Socialism Gone Mad  -  Insane California Democrats want to create their very own state level "Social Security" system . . . after having already bankrupted the state.

  • Socialists want to create a brand new California run "retirement savings" program for private sector workers.
  • This  personal pension program would be supervised by the very people who bankrupted the state.
  • Any employer who fails to enroll in the program or offer their own pension plan would be fined $1,000 per employee.
  • The Socialist legislator's bill says the state will guarantee the investments  -  that is taxpayers will cover any shortages. 

Two leading Democrat Socialist legislators in the People's Republic of California introduced legislation Thursday that creates a new state level retirement savings for private-sector workers of "modest means".  The bill would form a government-run program for private-sector workers whose employers do not offer pensions or 401(k) plans.
They said it could help an estimated 6.7 million California workers.

California Democrats appear to be in a contest to see just how many employers and jobs they can ship to other states and nations.  Never mind what company in its' right mind would even want to build a brand new business in California?

Socialist Democrat Senator Kevin de Leon and Senate Marxist Whore  President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg introduced the People's Bill SB1234.

This People's legislation would require employers with five or more workers to enroll them into what they have termed a "personal pension program" to be run by a state board. Their idea is to get small-business employees and hospitality workers who don't make much money to save more for their retirement reports the San Jose Mercury News.

The Socialist lawmakers said they believed their program would be the first in which a state government established a retirement program for workers in the private sector. As a program with little or no precedent, several issues remain unsettled, such as whether California taxpayers would ever be on the hook if future investment returns failed to meet projections.

SB1234 would establish the Golden State Retirement Savings Trust, which would be administered by a six-member board, including:

  • The State Treasurer
  • State Controller
  • Director of Finance 
  • and an appointment each by the Governor, Senate and Assembly. 

A Giant Clusterfuck  -  Let's see . . . . the idiot Socialists who ran California into bankruptcy and higher taxes want to be the managers of a new slush fund, I mean investment fund, that could perhaps amount to billions of dollars.

Private-sector workers would automatically have 3 percent of their earnings set aside in the trust, unless they opted out.  Take a guess how long it will be until they are not allowed to drop out and employers will be forced to "match" their contributions?

Unlike in an individual IRA or 401(k) account, their benefits—defined as their contributions plus earnings—would be guaranteed when they retire.

Republican lawmakers warned that taxpayers or employers could wind up on the hook to cover any shortfalls if the government starts guaranteeing benefits to private-sector employees.

Under proposed legislation, an employer who fails to enroll in the program or offer their own pension plan would be fined $1,000 per employee after a 90-day grace period.

BIG BROTHER - Minority Report in London

1984 Corporatism at a public bus stop in London.
The British Government and private corporations are working together to scan pedestrians and beam advertising directly to them . . . . . at what point will they start to beam political messages demanding that the Sheeple public obey their Masters?  

Big Brother Scans  -  A scanner will determine the sex of the reader and send different messages to men and women

  • A high-definition camera will scan the eyes of hundreds of thousands of passers-by.
  • "We're not giving men and boys the choice to see the full ad on this occasion – so they get a glimpse of what it's like to have basic choices taken away,"
  • Big Brother keeps pulling the hangman's noose tighter and tighter.

Benito Mussolini said that Fascism should really be called Corporatism  -  a merger of the power of the all-powerful State and Corporations.

Mussolini's Fascist wet-dream is coming true.  Today we have the British Government in bed with Big  Corporations to use public bus stops to effectively spy on the people.  But this is but the first step.  Soon there will be messages to report to Party Faithful Government lackeys those who might be potential law breakers or free thinkers or, far worse, those who dare to oppose the Government.

It is all for your own good you know. . . . and the Sheeple keep voting in these Bastards.

In the movie Minority Report, when Tom Cruise walks into a shopping center, an advertising board scans his retina and a video advert greets him by name and suggests he knock back a Guinness. In Britain this week, sci-fi is about to become sci-fact. And the target audience is women only.

A 40-second interactive advert is about to be launched that uses facial-recognition technology to decide the gender of the person looking at it and then vary its content. It was installed on a bus stop on Oxford Street in London's West End reports the UK Independent.

Only women will be able to view the full £30,000 advert commissioned by the children's charity Plan UK as part of its "Because I Am a Girl" campaign, which aims to ensure girls in the world's poorest countries are able to receive a good education.
“With a 90 percent accuracy rating, the computer built into the placement analyzes and guesses gender based on specific facial attributes of the jawline, cheekbones, nose and eyes. Based on the current guess of a pedestrian’s gender, the digital placement shows an advertisement targeted at a man or a woman. As this technology continues to be applied to the field of advertising, the computer could also make a judgement about a person’s age, race or body type,” reports Digital Trends.
No matter how many times you warn the Sheeple
they keep allowing the government to build the
Big Brother State.

If the device recognizes a man it will display a message directing him to the charity's website.  The technology itself was developed by Clear Channel UK and 3D Exposure, who assert that while concerns about people being subjected to Minority Report-style invasive advertising have been voiced, what they are working on for future projects “may soon surpass what we’ve seen at the cinema.”

The advert, which will have a two-week trial, will use a high-definition camera to scan hundreds of thousands of passers-by. 

"We're not giving men and boys the choice to see the full ad on this occasion – so they get a glimpse of what it's like to have basic choices taken away," said Marie Staunton, Plan UK's chief executive.

The Open Rights Group called it "creepy". Neil Chapman, the head of the creative team at Clear Channel UK, the company who designed the ad, said full-blown Minority Report advertising would be his "idea of hell". He claimed his advert would not record or save any of the data it detects. His company is already in talks with many other clients to get more targeted advertising campaigns launched this year.

Minority Report Mall Scene

This is a scene from the movie Minority Report. Tom Cruise walks in the mall while his eyes are getting scanned by 3D screens. The screens call him directly by his name to get his attention.

China sucks oil out of Venezuela

Comrade Chavez is selling out his
country to China.

The Communist Chinese give Hugo Chavez billions for a slush fund

Comrade Obama is either clueless or he is working hand-in-hand with his Socialist Brothers in China and Venezuela to destroy the Capitalist American economy.

Comrade Hugo Chavez is selling oil to Communist China that used to come to the United States.  Chavez has received countless billions in payoffs from the Chinese reports the Washington Times.

While oil is shipped to China, Comrade Obama goes golfing.  There is a worldwide rush for oil and Obama does nothing.

Opposition groups in Venezuela are warning that billions of dollars in Chinese loans are driving the state oil company toward bankruptcy.  But a bankrupt Venezuela would make them even more dependent on Chinese money to stay afloat.

Miguel Rodriguez, an opposition member of Congress who leaked government memos from the Oil Ministry, predicted that the loans will “end up accelerating the bankruptcy” of Petroleum of Venezuela SA, known by its Spanish acronym, PDVSA.

Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez was so alarmed that he warned Comrade Hugo Chavez that the terms of the loan - which require payment in hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil at cut-rate prices - are creating a “very heavy financial load for PDVSA.”

In a memo addressed to “Comrade President,” Ramirez said that the loans caused PDVSA to lose $12.5 billion last year.

Chinese Communists "buy" Venezuelan oil for $5 a barrel 

Rodriguez told The Washington Times that he is preparing legal action to challenge the loans before Venezuela’s high court.

He said the loans are unconstitutional partly because they violate a national law prohibiting the use of state resources as loan guarantees.  “These are illegal debt mechanisms,” he said.

Rodriguez said the leaked documents are proof that the loan conditions are bad for PDVSA. He also said that $23 billion of what critics call the “China fund” are unaccounted for.

“The president uses the ‘China fund’ as if it were money in his own pocket,” he said.

Since 2007, Chavez's government has received some $32 billion from China to finance infrastructure in exchange for a steady supply of oil at below market prices.

Is China going broke?

The Chinese economic bubble may be bursting.

China's high-speed rail project has run out of money
  • The Communist Party has suspended 70% of the rail projects.
  • Massive debt and rail travel makes no money
  • Corruption - toilets installed at a cost of 1.2 million yuan (£120,000) a piece.
  • Local governments are over $2 Trillion in debt.

Is the Chinese economic bubble getting ready to burst?  China is experiencing labor unrest, massive local and national debt and a massive overbuild in the real estate sector.  As the economy slows will it spark internal unrest?  or drag down the other economies in the world?

Out of 23 current railway projects, some 70 per cent have been suspended, partly suspended, or delayed, according to the Chinese state media.

Meanwhile, an unnamed source told Dow Jones, the news agency, that only nine new railways would be commissioned this year, compared to 70 last year.

Having run up enormous debts, the Chinese Railways ministry is struggling to persuade banks to continue to finance its ambitions reports the UK Telegraph.

Ticket sales, meanwhile, have been slow on some lines as travelers baulk at the price.

"The ministry cannot bear so much debt. It has already taken 240 billion yuan (£24 billion) of loans and if it takes much more how can it pay the interest?" said Wang Mengshu, a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and senior consultant on the high-speed rail project.

"It can make profits of about 70 billion yuan on freight, but it is making no money on passenger travel. The government should cancel some of the debt, or invest some money itself rather than asking the banks to finance it," he added.

"A lot of projects are half-finished and while nine new lines have been approved this year, no one has started building them."

At the height of the high-speed boom, trains were being fitted with toilets that cost 1.2 million yuan (£120,000) a piece, and taps imported from Japan that cost 7,000 yuan, according to an investigation by Century Weekly magazine.

Questions were raised about how much of the £190 billion high-speed rail budget had been siphoned off, and whether it would have an impact on the safety of the network.

Running out of money.
The Chinese are shutting down construction of their train system.  They are massively in debt
and they cannot charge enough for riders of the system to make a profit.
