The sites targeted by the SNMC included predictable ones such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, in addition to more demographically focused sites such as MiGente and BlackPlanet."

Gov. Regulations Won't Allow Star Trek Like "Synthehol" To Be Sold.

http://feeds.gawker.com

This latest substance is being developed in a way that mimics Valium... this substance delivers all the inebriating effects of alcohol, but without the mood-altering and addiction side effects. Better still, he claims that drinkers will be able to flush their system almost immediately with an antidote. Need to drive home after a rager of a holiday party? No problem! Pop a pill and you'll soon be good to go.

The Government Can Use GPS to Track Your Moves

http://www.time.com

Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway — and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.

Parents to be jailed for not going to parent-teacher conferences

http://www.google.com

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said that's indicative of a larger issue in Detroit, where the lack of making parents accountable for their children partly is blamed on elevated truancy and dropout rates, as well as a recent rash of violent crimes involving teens.

Worthy has a new idea she hopes will fix the problem: Jail parents for up to three days for repeatedly missing scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

Goverment I.C.E.'ing movie sharing online.

http://www.variety.com

Apparently, it is now the job of "I.C.E" (as if they didn't choose that just to try to be scary), to shut down not only illegal immigrants, but also...illegal movie watching on the internet.

A popular site, linked here: http://www.movies-links.tv/index.html now redirects you to a super-creepy "we will hurt you" style message from your happy servants in the federal government.

Say what you will about internet piracy, but what does I.C.E. have to do with this?

U.S. rights group sues to protect right to swear

http://news.yahoo.com

An American rights group is suing the police in Pennsylvania for issuing tickets, which carry a jail sentence, to people for swearing.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which filed the lawsuits earlier, argues that the right to use profanity is protected by the U.S. Constitution.
"Unfortunately, many police departments in the commonwealth do not seem to be getting the message that swearing is not a crime," said Marieke Tuthill of the ACLU of Pennsylvania. "The courts have repeatedly found that profanity, unlike obscenity, is protected speech."
