Minus The Nemesis
A Collaboration of Some of the Finest Thought on Today's World

Cry me a river minus.

I know, I know, my blogging level as of late has been inversely proportional to my badassness level-- meaning zero blogging. But...rest assured...I am still alive.

Sadly, the same can't be said for Senator Lloyd Bentsen. The man died this week, at the age of 85. Senator Bentsen was famous for the ultimate debate zinga to Dan Quayle of "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy"

Reagan improved on that when, self-deprecating his old age, he responded to Governor Bill Clinton's claim to be Thomas Jefferson incarnate by saying "This fellow they've nominated claims he's the new Thomas Jefferson. Well, let me tell you something: I knew Thomas Jefferson. He was a friend of mine, and governor...you're no Thomas Jefferson."

Anyway, Sen. Bentsen, RIP.

President Ronald Reagan, RIP.

And good night Chesty, wherever you are.

Article from Denver Post.

Via numerous sources both print and visual, there are reports streaming in that a panel at CU Boulder has found alleged American Indian Ward Churchill, generally a scumbag, guilty of plagiarizing others' work, falsifying and fabricating (that means he lied Churchill supporters/fans) some of his material. The panel of 5 found him guilty and Ward the "pseudo-Indian leftist" Churchill could be facing a penalty of suspension without pay for up to five years. At least two of the five would like to see only two-years suspension without pay; compromise and give him three! Surely some other university will hire this guy. How about Mills College in Oakland, California? They deserve him! I am willing to bet that they have been keeping tabs on his career like the Cigarette Smoking Man from the X-Files has done with Mulder.

It is nice to see that even in the Republic of Boulder some still have some common sense. Honestly, one can look past the paltry "little Eichmann" comments and realize that this guy is basically full of not only himself, but also of shit. Once you start looking further into the problem that is Ward Churchill you may realize that playing the race card even at this level is unacceptable. If you are not what you say you are, don't be disrespectful to those who are...simple math. The reason that I used the Denver Post article is simple; they are the ones who reported a while back (1987) that Ward was a paratrooper and sniper in Vietnam. Funny though that information obtained via FOIA channels show only that he was a light truck driver, projectionist and public-information specialist. Well, someone has to edit the battalion newsletter so that the Colonel has something to read while on the crapper.

I still find it hard to believe that this phony has as many followers as he does. Coming from the Republic of Boulder and realizing that there are legions of mindless neo-hippy zombies wasting their college years and mommy and daddy's money, smoking the dope and coming to an educational standstill all the while supporting this idiot doesn't speak highly of any involved parties. Being that he even has followers of this caliber (bb's in a world of .45s) is laughable, but sad. How could you not see through this crap? Being a surface-looker is no way to go through life dummies. Crack open a book to actually read the pages vice tearing them out when you misplaced your zig-zag's; you may learn something.

Wait! What am I saying!? Mindless Republic of Boulder neo-hippy zombie Ward Churchill supporters: did you know that the Royal Gorge Bridge is for sale? I will cut you a great deal! I would say have your people call mine, but I think that your friend's only get one call a week from the klink. Think on it; if you can.

As recently as 11 May 2006 several different people have "broken" a story about the alleged NSA wiretapping. There is an aura of scandal surrounding articles such as this one due to the possibility what is being reported is largely speculation on the part of the journalist or even the reader. Some will take the print and consider it fact without completing any further research and thusly having formed a solid opinion on some of their country's intelligence assets, which is fairly arrogant. Granted, some articles may be taken at face value, but in my opinion something as serious as the potential of the US government to simply deny the people their 4th Amendment rights, sweeping aside the FISA court and associated personal liberty penetrations are definitely deserving of not only scrutiny, but also further individual discovery. This entry is nothing more than a report of personal discovery as it pertains to the written words in the media as I have been reading it. As a caution to the reader of this entry: don't take this information as doctrine either; use it to further your own research and come up with your own educated decision vice relying on the words of someone with no real vested interest in the legalities, legitimacy or otherwise of the NSA program.

*Note to readers: While I haven't fully worked out the "Read More!" code, this post definitely qualifies, so please click "Read More!" to get the full post.

The National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) is the United States' cryptologic organization in that it has a twofold mission. First is the protection of US information systems and second is the production of foreign signals intelligence information. The NSA/CSS became part of the US intelligence community on 4 November 1952 as a result of then President Truman working with the National Security Council and the subsequent issuance of a revision of National Security Council Intelligence Directive (NSCID) No. 9 on 24 October 1952. The NSA also has its roots in another Department of Defense (DoD) agency that has since ceased to exist: the Armed Forces Security Agency (AFSA) dating from around 1949. The CSS is merely a link between the NSA and the cryptologic elements of the armed forces of the US; formed in 1972 as the result of a Presidential Directive. The NSA by law can only collect foreign intelligence information. With that in mind, I would encourage the reader to at least have a glance at Executive Order 12333, which is the NSA's charter. It would seem that although the NSA may typically rely on the FBI to handle business within the borders of the US in dealing with any sort of collection of information (of intelligence value), the advent of the 9/11 travesty has brought about some trying scenarios for many agencies. I am hesitant to state flatly that in any of my research of any intelligence entity's charter does it state that their goal is to keep tabs on the American public, spy on Americans, perpetrate a "Big Brother" mentality, coerce the public via fear or any other such nonsense. I believe that these agencies are in place (indeed the roots of said agencies are firmly planted in decades past) for good reason. A protection of US assets is a must, but at the same time personal liberty must be taken into consideration.

As told to a certain newspaper by "people with direct knowledge of the arrangement", and evidently filtered down to the desk of one journalist, the National Security Agency has allegedly been collecting the telephone call records of millions of Americans with the help of three telephone companies. Those three alleged assistants in the telco industry are AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth. This is all well and good, but what I perhaps am not understanding is the apparent lack of obligation to any sort of affirmation statements or otherwise by the "people with direct knowledge of the arrangement". Due to the following (from the NSA website):
"NSA/CSS has a responsibility to the citizens of the United States not to disclose our sources or methods of intelligence, as we could potentially lose vital information, with dire consequences to the United States. For this reason, the long-standing policy within the United States Intelligence Community is that we refrain from commenting on actual or alleged intelligence issues"
I take the persons with any knowledge of any arrangement to be that of telco employees and not those of the NSA. That is not to say that someone from the NSA decided to speak to the press about sensitive programs, but I would hope that's not the case. Again, it is because of EO 12333 that the NSA abides by the rules that it does, take a look at it.

When I looked further into the possible system and related program of which the media seems to have exposed (this is another myth; it's been common knowledge for some time now), I found information pertaining to Echelon. Echelon is apparently a global surveillance network run by the NSA but participated in by the US, Great Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Because people see fit to divulge sensitive information after their tenure in the intelligence community, information about sensitive topics are brought to the general public by persons like Mike Frost; a 20-year veteran of the CSE (essentially the Canadian version of the NSA). Thanks to a special put forth by 60 Minutes, Mike Frost is apparently the only high-ranking intelligence official to speak publicly about the Echelon program. Whether or not this is a good idea to make this sensitive information publicly accessible seems like a no-brainer to me. The very people and government's that may be considered enemies will now perhaps have a better understanding of the system that may bring them down; or at least prevent them from fulfilling the desire to bring the US and her allies down.

In that respect, I suggest reading the 60 Minutes transcript for your own edification. This aired back in 2000 by the way. What I gathered was that due to the global coverage of the Echelon program, all of the information is sent back to the NSA proper and its supercomputers take over the information all the while scanning transmissions word for word, looking for specific phrases, keywords or even voices that may be pertinent. From that data (telephone numbers, people's names, specific keywords) are further analyzed and according to Mr. Frost:
"And people are getting caught, and--and that's great."
That is a good thing in my opinion as well. Those that are taking advantage of the American people to propagate terrorism and other illegal activities should be brought to justice. There are many inconsistencies making this system inefficient in my opinion as well. Take for example an instance spoken about by Mr. Frost in which a woman was speaking on the telephone about a play her son was in the previous night; "Danny really bombed last night" was intercepted by the NSA computers and subsequently by an analyst (you don't think computers do all of the work do you?!) and erring on the side of caution associated the woman's name and telephone number with terrorism. Therein may lay one of the inefficiencies of the system, human interaction. As it turns out the final disposition, is in fact made by human analysts who take in the bytes of what the computer has recorded.

As far back as the 1960's the NSA has been swarmed with scandal in regards to spying on America's citizens. During the '60s it was apparently commonplace to record telephone conversations of anti-war protestors as well as the infamous civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Congress did not take kindly to these allegations and drafted rather strict laws prohibiting the agency from spying on citizens. Apparently called "Shamrock" this program lead to the creation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 1978. As of late, there is further interest in this type of activity and that is why we see a literal storm of these types of allegations and related media stories. It is hard to tell as an average citizen where to define what is truth and what is fiction as printed and said. Personally, I don't trust the media all that much; I am willing to bet there are indeed some goings on at the NSA as of late, but to what extent I am not certain. The media, I am sure, isn't certain either.

What seems to be happening is that the NSA likes to ensure certain safeguards are in place and operational in dealing with the security of the US. As requested by then Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Porter Goss, the NSA divulged information pertaining to said safeguards and also the insurance they weren't being abused. The former Committee Chairman firmly believes that the NSA isn't spying on innocent American citizens. It has been questioned in the past that if the NSA does indeed possess the means to screen the millions of faxes, emails and telephone calls of American citizens, how do you make sure that the innocent ones aren't involved? There are unspoken measures in place to safeguard against that from what I have read. I don't know to the extent of their reach nor capabilities, but am fairly certain this is all part of a larger contingency planning effort. Also from some precursory research, the NSA doesn't seem to acknowledge the existence of a program named Echelon. It is a strange fact though that there are persons that allegedly have firsthand experience with all of this type of secrecy and see fit to share with the public. It seems like a cheap spy novel at times. I remember a while back when a dude named Bob Lazar "came forward" about the goings on of Area 51! All I am trying to say is take what is read/heard/seen (including this) with a grain of salt and relative caution and do as much research as you possibly can so that you have a bit more knowledge to work with than you may have previously had.

From what I gather, the FISA is in place to prevent American's from being illicitly spied on. Under FISA and furthermore, requests for surveillance of the electronic variety as well as physical searches of persons believed to be involved in espionage or terrorism against the US are adjudicated by an 11-member court; the FISA court. Some decent reading on the subjects of case law, amendments to the FISA as well as legislative history can be found at the website for the Center for National Security Studies (CNSS). This site is labeled as: "Protecting Civil Liberties and Human Rights" and I found it to be more fact based than a biased site of tripe. There are decent reads pertaining to exactly what we as the public are hearing about via the media today and stemming all the way back to 1975. To quote then President Carter at the signing of the FISA into law in 1978, "one of the most difficult tasks in a free society like our own is the correlation between adequate intelligence to guarantee our Nation's security on the one hand, and the preservation of basic human rights on the other." Usually, I am not a big Carter fan in the slightest and think he is an abject failure at times (in reference to several brokered deals that weren't all that great in days gone by) but try and recognize his efforts as a humanitarian. I feel that this quote, no matter whom spoken by, is accurate. There needs to be a separation in the sense that yes, the nation definitely needs to be secure but not at the expense of the American people by progressing towards an alleged "police state". It is also my opinion that nobody wants that state. Carter was convinced that the "difficult balance" would be achieved by the new FISA in 1978. Also of note was an amendment made to the FISA in 1994 by then Attorney General Janet Reno. Prior to this date, Congress decided that secret warrantless physical searches of homes and offices weren't legit. AG Reno authorized such an action in 1994 to search the home of CIA spy Aldrich Ames. Naturally the spy's attorney challenged it saying it was unconstitutional, but the Clinton administration asked Congress to extend the FISA to encompass such acts. The reaction by the civil rights community was one of disagreement and objection claiming such searches were unconstitutional, however, the Department of Justice (DoJ) said, "wait a second there civil rights community! It is better to have said searches approved by the FISA than just acted on and approved by the AG." That, of course, being the gist of the reaction by the DoJ and not a real quote. The end result as we know it was the amendment of the FISA by Congress to include these types of searches. In a "different but related" event, the Supreme Court ruled that the persons who were searched (offices, homes, etc.) should be given notice to that fact (re: Squillacote v. United States, 532, U.S. 971 (2001)). The jury is still out as to whether or not this "notice of being searched" means that the newly amended secret searches under the FISA are unconstitutional; stay tuned! It is further reported that the PATRIOT Act has allowed further amending of the FISA and arguably (of course) that it has taken away some of the safeguards that protect against abuse. Since the PATRIOT Act there have been a slew of FISA court rulings; it's probably better just to pursue this research on your own time as there are volumes of information that would make this already boring entry even more so!

According to Paul Butler (a former US prosecutor) the FISA usually isn't an issue in relation to data mining by the government. Also said is that the FISA doesn't prohibit the government from doing so, however, personal identifiers such as SSN, name, address, etc. require "higher level of probable cause". With that in mind, historically the telco industry has required law enforcement (LE) to make with a court order before they could cough-up someone's toll records. Where the NSA program as reported may lead into some confusion is where it meets Section 222 of the Communications Act of 1934. Basically it states that it's not legit for the telephone companies to give out information regarding customer's calling habits.

In closing, I think that I cannot draw a definitive answer as far as what's being reported. I can, however, take a look at the multitude of sources that will give me a better understanding of what may be occurring. The point is to take the time to do some (at least a little) research to come to a better conclusion. As it turns out, this is not a partisan issue and shouldn't be. Trying to simply point fingers and justify which "side" is more- guilty is futile and any original intent seems to begin to get lost. It's easy and perhaps a bit arrogant to stop there. What you end up with is just that; the finger has been pointed, now what? If your research convinces you one way or another, so be it, but give additional time and energy into some precursory research. There is so much data to read over and sift through that I don't think it is possible to become completely aware of the truth as the NSA knows it, but you can certainly become closer by glancing at it, that's for sure. I am by no means an expert, but I found that a bit of reading cleared up some things that I had questions about. Due to the multitude of sources (both proponent and opponent) it will take some more time before I can call myself convinced one way or another. I intend to keep up with it as personal liberties are involved and I don't like the fact that they may be infringed upon or that I may not have any control over that. Education, in this case, seems to be the key to not letting that happen.

S. 2725 by Hillary Clinton et al.

As I understand it (and I am no Hayek or von Mises), wages should be raised via production and not government interference. There is a myth that the minimum wage legislation raises the market wage (this isn't true). Once you raise the minimum wage, unemployment will soon follow. The reason being is that once the government sets a fixed wage price by raising the minimum wage (say for example $5.00), it's illegal to hire anyone at below that rate. Those that aren't worth that (i.e. less than the $5.00) don't have jobs. Some will try and compensate by charging more for the product and shifting the risen minimum wage to the consumer. It may work in a short run, but overall consumers will buy less of said product and the market takes a downward turn.

Because of this unemployment as a result of raising minimum wage, there is a need for a relief program (welfare). The problem with this is that if you set the minimum wage to $5.15 you have forbidden anyone to work 40 hours in a week for less than $206/week. The relief may have been set up to provide only $137/week which effectively blocks a dude from being gainfully employed for say $176/week when you can support him for $137/week for doing nothing. Dude's value of his services is gone. If you raise the relief, to $206/week then you have scum bags trying to collect off of doing nothing vice being productive. Suppose that someone is getting paid more than $5.15/hour at say, $6.00/hour ($240/week) they may look at that and say that for a $36/week cut, I could be getting paid by doing nothing at home. So, it turns into a situation where labor may be working for differences in the wages and production is affected by that.

All in all through the research I did I found that it's best to raise wages by increasing marginal labor productivity and that the government should perhaps "step off". I don't think that Hillary Clinton is doing something good here. While tying it in to the big bad government's salary (when they get a raise, so do you) is appealing to the people, it is effectively useless.

In the event that any of this is incorrect, and you are versed in economics (or you are in fact either F.A. Hayek or Ludwig von Mises), blast away! This was just my precursory research...if nothing else, use all the above for just that; your own research. I think that you will find in the long run it's still not a good idea.

In a not too terribly surprising law suit being filed against Kanye West by DFCS Trust, West allegedly just didn't pay his bills for a 2003 Mercedes G500. There were to be 39 consecutive (rappers: "consecutive" basically means one after the other; in a row) payments of $1,295.00 per month for the SUV. Defaulting on the payments, West is being sued for $53,747, plus attorney fees, accruing lease payments, late charges, interest and punitive damages. I hope that the Trust company gets every penny.

This news isn't breaking, nor important. I just don't like Kanye West Kanye PayYerBillsOnTime at all. Dude all rappin an rhymin bout' GoldDigging when he can't even pay his own bills. Hypocritical jive-ass turkey.

I came across this Yahoo! article while surfing about.

United Airlines is going to air a 13-minute video depicting five military jobs (none of which are in a combat zone) to their passengers. So what. While speaking about the Pentagon's shortfall in their recruiting goals (which are intentionally set high) is discussed, one thing in particular sparked my interest. That was when Tom Bivins, who is a "professor" of media ethics at the University of Oregon, opened his face and said that the military's omission of production credits is "questionable". Also: "People need to realize they are being advertised to" said the smart-man.

Really, Tom? People need to know they are being advertised to? I nearly missed that fact when I tore into the United Airlines sack of peanuts, looked at the carpet, seat back, safety instructions, my own freaking ticket, napkins or tried to keep warm in a United Airlines blanket. I never would have known I was being advertised to in that aspect. Let's move on to the video, shall we?

Oddly enough the safety instructions given on some United flights are in a video form that have huge United Airlines splash screens associated with them. In the video called Today's Military I would be convinced that it pertained to the US military. Why? Only because while I am on an American carrier I don't usually think of Paraguay's military for some reason. Ok. Let's say I had missed that title, once I saw a couple of people wearing US military camouflage (by now even the retarded kid in 15A is screaming "Army! Army!") and administering vaccinations to impoverished Thai children, I am not thinking "Ug, a propaganda film for the continuation of Dr. Goebbels work!" or "Has Unit 731 made a comeback?" I am pretty sure at this point that it is the US military depicting one of five jobs that they have to offer according to this video. Furthermore, I don't give a rat's ass who they key grip was, who did the crappy gaffing job on "soldier number 4", who the sound guy was, where the film was shot, etc. Instead, I am thinking about the US military and those 5 of 200+ jobs they offer. Professor of Nitpickery is a more apt title.

Original Entry.

As promised, I intend to keep up with this one as I see the "peace" officer as being blatantly wrong in shooting the unarmed veteran. So far, so good with this ordeal. Ivory Webb has officially been charged with attempted voluntary manslaughter. While not attempted murder, it is still a felony and he could face up to 18.5 years in prison.

It is nice to know that the judicial system even in California works part of the time. Although a bit late in entering this information (it came out roughly in the middle of March), I intend to keep updating as I find the information. Hopefully, justice is served and Ivory Webb spends his nearly 19 years in prison. Dummy.

Maggie Gyllenhaal made some disturbing comments in regards to the 9/11 attacks back in April of 2005, stating that "I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way..." Now with the upcoming movie about two Port Authority officers trapped in the rubble directed by the doped-up drunk also known as Oliver Stone(r), Gyllenhaal has supposedly made amends with the two actual persons; one of which she is supposed to portray in the film. Due to her protected status as US royalty (thanks Jon Q. Public), this will be swept under the carpet and allowed to pass just like all of the other liberal Hollywood tripe.

I won't go see the movie for the simple fact that it is directed by Oliver Stone and that Maggie Gyllenhaal is in it. If I wanted to see some dummy get saddled-up and ridden like they were trash, I would either venture out to see Brokeback Mountain or The Secretary; ain't happenin'.

In a slew of articles all over the Internet Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, actually wrote President Bush a letter offering a diplomatic avenue to Iran's obvious stupidity in regards to nuclear weapons. Iran claims that it wants to enrich uranium for the purpose of creating electricity; that's it. Other nations, including the US, seem to think that Iran isn't responsible enough and will in fact use the enriched uranium for making weapons.

Iranian Hand Job

The letter is the first from an Iranian head of state to the US President in 27 years. I don't know if this means anything besides wanting to be taken seriously on the world stage. In that case, it's going to take a lot more than a paltry letter to make amends with concern to nuclear weapons. Iran's people seem to have a pro-West attitude, but the president doesn't; he's too conservative in that respect. I would assume that before too long, the people of Iran are going to realize what's happening in places like Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and pry themselves loose from the tyrannical grip the Ayatollah has on them. Perhaps the former Shah's son will make a surprise visit into this boondoggle and give the people a kick in the pants?

In the event that you haven't heard, Moussaoui has asked to withdraw his "guilty" plea and now says that he lied on the witness stand and fabricated the whole thing. Unfortunately for that moron, he was given a fair trial and was told by the judge that he couldn't appeal his convictions as he waived that right. Either way, this guy is more than likely going to die in a bizarre prison accident.

  • There is no chin under Chuck Norris' Beard. There is only another fist.

  • When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

  • Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

  • Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.

  • Chuck Norris doesn't wear a watch, HE decides what time it is.

  • Chuck Norris is so fast, he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head.

  • There are literally hundreds more. This site is hilarious, check it out.

    Usually I am not one to promote chain emails, but this one has truth attached to it. The type of truth those in the photo and associated with just don't get.


    And the content of the email:
    The grinning idiot clinging to Je$$e Jack$on is Cindy Sheehan...the sob-sister protesting the war at Bush's ranch, who lost her son in the war, the same son she gave up in her divorce when he was 7 years old.

    And by the way if you wonder why she has so much free time...she is going through another divorce right now and guess what? She is giving up custody of another son.

    As Forest Gump once wisely proclaimed, "Stupid is as stupid does."
    While this is a bit old, the message is and always has been the same. If you are really that interested, yes, she did give up Casey in her first divorce to become a political activist for the Democrats. Seems to be a pattern evolving...but after all is said and done you may be asking yourself: "Cindy who?" Exactly.

    TWO DOWN...

    I have deleted the other two portions of this blog; The Pro Idiots page and the Music Review section. I don't have as much time as I would like to maintain one let alone three blogs. I will hopefully come up with something more in the future as time allows. It would be easier if Nemesis actually did blog though.

    Thanks guys. The one day I really wanted a sack of oranges as I sat in traffic, and I couldn't get them. So help me if you let me down during strawberry season I will personally call John McCain and have him challenge additional, already hard working Americans to pick the produce so that I may have my berries on demand.

    The point being that there are immigrants in this country that did so legally and are just as confused by the intent of the illegal aliens leeching off of the US as the US citizens are. That is what it boils down to: if you pursue means to become a citizen of this country, please do so legally and don't pursue the criminal method.

    Perhaps the US needs to better enforce laws pertaining to this that are already on the books as well as beefing up border security?

    Or Esther, which ever it is this week. Doesn't matter; result is still the same. At a festival this week in Coachella, California Estherdonna changed the lyrics of one of her tantrums set to music to this: Just go to Texas and suck George Bush's d**k. Real classy Estherdonna, but not in the least surprising.

    That, however, is plainly a metaphor, it's just that "Just go to Texas and suck Headquarters and Headquarters Company's, the Dallas Cowboys (yes all of them), most of Houston, that guy in the third row's, at least two of my roadies, that guy I asked for directions at Krispy Kreme, my agent's, my agent's agent's and finally my career's d**k" just doesn't sound right with the chosen music. Maybe on the next album?

    On a side note: I remember this from 2003 and still laugh at it. It would seem that Estherdonna tried to stop people from pirating her latest album (at the time) by placing fake .mp3s on the Internet in place of the actual music. So, all the "fans" got was a message recorded by Estherdonna saying "What the f*ck do you think your doing?". Not to be outdone, a hacker defaced her website with the following message: "This is what the f*ck I think I'm doing." Chuckle.
