Instead, they promised to replace the 8600M GT boards when they failed, up to 4 years from the date of purchase.

OpEdNews - Article: A Conspiracy of Whores

OpEdNews - Article: A Conspiracy of Whores
This kind of misplaced dishonor is part of the "core values" cited in the Secret Service scandal. Something is wrong when individual sexual peccadilloes become a more serious matter for public shame than collective actions like a disastrous and violent 40-year Drug War and a misguided 50-year embargo of a tiny island nation. Add in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the new doctrine of special operations assassination teams and lethal drones and the "scandal" of a few agents paying for consensual sex becomes laughable. Our wars are the real scandal.

Why Are Yank Sickos On Australian Soil? | DANGEROUS CREATION — for thinkers.: "And now, the same troops are in Australia and more are coming to infest our harbors, our airfields, and our society. And our Government is welcoming them with open arms, these sicko killers who love killing and raping and destroying and inflicting cruelty.

When is Australia going to wake up? When are the citizens of our country going to protest the actions of our politicians who have taken Yank-grovelling to a new low?"

About Julian Assange’s New Revolutionary Television Show | The Dissenter

About Julian Assange’s New Revolutionary Television Show | The Dissenter: Assange does not do as many US pundits often do during their television shows. He refrains from launching into monologues to explain his views on the subject or the subject matter of the interview. Instead, the episode is purely Assange interviewing Nasrallah for nearly a half hour. It is an exemplary form of journalism, one that a number of American journalists would fear engaging in because they might end up being repeatedly stopped at US airports in the aftermath or might be investigated for ties to terrorism.

ISRAELI CONTROL OF AMERICA: A VETERANS TODAY READER COMMENTS | Veterans Today

ISRAELI CONTROL OF AMERICA: A VETERANS TODAY READER COMMENTS | Veterans Today: My belief is that everyone should be treated with blind justice, receive equal treatment and equal representation under the law, but doing this research I have found there are some substantial inequities in our nation which seem to be tied directly to the death spiral we are seeing in our American republic.

OpEdNews - Page 2 of Article: Emperor of the Air: Potomac Poobahs Squeeze the Skies: What right indeed? What right does the United States have to punish businesses in foreign countries who do business with another foreign country, as in the case of the ever-spreading sanctions on yet another state outside the imperial system, Iran? (And again: the same caveat offered above on Cuba applies here as well.) What right does it have to fire drone missiles into sovereign nations and kill their citizens? What right does it have to assassinate its own citizens and imprison them indefinitely without charges, trial or due process? What right does it have to invade and destroy entire nations which have not attacked or threatened the United States?

Oppose CISPA

Congress is currently considering CISPA – the Cyber Intelligence Sharing & Protection Act – a bill that purports to protect the United States from “cyber threats” but would in fact create a gaping loophole in all existing privacy laws. If CISPA passes, companies could vacuum up huge swaths of data on everyday Internet users and share it with the government without a court order. I oppose CISPA, and I’m calling on Congress to reject any legislation that: * Uses dangerously vague language to define the breadth of data that can be shared with the government. * Hands the reins of America’s cybersecurity defenses to the NSA, an agency with no transparency and little accountability. * Allows data shared with the government to be used for purposes unrelated to cybersecurity. Join me in opposing this bill https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8444
