Schools, Polictics and Cons

Schools put money, reputation over student safety

Why the MA Child safety law has no teeth. Is, in fact, un-enforceable.

Faking Your Caller ID

Special alert to my industry friends, check this out, wow! And on a web page no less.

“However, services have popped up online that push this to the limit whereby they specify the Caller ID to be shown on each phone call on a call by call basis.”

 In fact, you can see how it works right here for free:

www.SpoofCard.com (I’d recommend that you DO NOT click, and DEFINITELY do not use the free trail)

Simply enter in the number you are calling from (say your home or cell number), the number you are calling (say, your friend’s number), and the Caller ID number you want to have displayed on your friend’s phone when your call comes through. The system will call you, and then you will hear silence while the system then calls your friend (while displaying the Caller ID you just entered in the form.

Verizon charges a minium of $9.95 a month for Caller ID, if this kind of thing can be done, why waste your money?

Obama announces debt plan built on taxes on the rich.

Village Voice’s Michael Feingold: “Kill the Billionaires!”

“Killing the goose that lays the golden eggs”, does that ring a bell?

OK, kill the Billionaires and take their money, that relieves the pressure for a while. What do you do for a encore?

Who wants to step up to the plate and be the next crop of sheep to the slaughter. Who is going to invest in, run, and grow the new industries and businesses that produce the wealth you are going to need to steal next year to keep going?

Got it, next we go after the millionaires, then the “hundred-thousandaires”, then the, the, the… Hey! What are you looking at me for?

On Facebook, Rich Galen reminds us: “4 yrs ago the GOP leaders were Giuliani (28%) & Thompson (23). Dems were Hillary (47) & Obama (26).”

Which means, in 2008, the Democrats won the race to the bottom. (Talking about McCain, not Sarah).

Color me Stunned. In California, of all places, common sense in high office. When you read the name at the end you won’t believe your eyes.

To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 105 without my signature.

This measure would impose criminal penalties on a child under the age of 18 and his or her parents if the child skis or snowboards without a helmet.

While I appreciate the value of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state. Not every human problem deserves a law.

I believe parents have the ability and responsibility to make good choices for their children.

Sincerely, Edmund J. Brown

(That’s Gov. Jerry Brown, Governor Moonbeam)
