Senators push for tracking of pre-paid cellphones

Posted May 28th, 2010 by joeschenck
Tags:

legislation that would give authorities the ability to identify the owners of pre-paid cellphones, which they say is long overdue "because for years, terrorists, drug kingpins and gang members have stayed one step ahead of the law by using prepaid phones that are hard to trace." That new tracking ability would also consequently place some new requirements on cellphone carriers and people buying the phones -- specifically, anyone buying a pre-paid cellphone would be required to present identification before buying a phone

Posted May 27th, 2010 by jmn

What happens when a state is lucky enough to have one of their Senators ascend to one of the three most powerful committee chairmanships? According to a new study by three Harvard Business School the average state then experiences a 40 to 50 percent increase in earmark spending (the figure is a smaller 20% for powerful House committees). So this new government spending is then a boon to the state right? The public spending stimulates economic growth right? Wrong. Turns out, increased federal spending is connected with a decrease in corporate capital expenditures and employment.

Part 2 Old Harry Browne ads! Way ahead of his time!

This is part 2 of old ads I dug up for the Harry Browne 2000 presidential run. These were turned down by comedy central because they said they would not play anything political. Boy have they changed their tune. These ads mainly focus on the War on Drugs and Gun rights. I can't believe he has been gone 5 years, happy B-day Harry!

You know the old saying: "Everyone loves a charade." Well, it seems that the Census Bureau may be playing games.

Last week, one of the millions of workers hired by Census 2010 to parade around the country counting Americans blew the whistle on some statistical tricks.

The worker, Naomi Cohn, told The Post that she was hired and fired a number of times by Census. Each time she was hired back, it seems, Census was able to report the creation of a new job to the Labor Department.

On last night's show Mark incorrectly defined a Rhombus, saying that it has two parallel sides and two "pointing towards each other." He went on to say that it annoys him when people incorrectly define shapes to Jack. What Mark was talking about is actually a Trapezoid. A Rhombus is what most people refer to as a diamond.
