The Minnesota GOP Is Hacking You

This week the Minnesota Republican Party is distributing a new CD about a proposed state marriage amendment. Along with flashy graphics, the CD asks people their views on controversial issues such as abortion, gun control, illegal immigration, and so on.

The problem – the CD sends your answers back to headquarters, filed by name, address, and political views. No mention of that in the terms of use. No privacy policy at all.

Sex Pistols – Still Punksters?

It’s kind of nice that the Sex Pistols have refused to perform at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Maybe the cash-in reunions haven’t quite killed their cool? But maybe this quote has:

Susan Evans, the executive director of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said she wasn’t offended by their decision not to attend. “They are being the outrageous punksters they are, and that’s rock ‘n’ roll.”

People, what you have to understand is that the Sex Pistols are outrageous punksters. And outrageous punksters do things a little differently than all of you non-punksters. Look, not being a punkster, I don’t expect you to understand the behavior of the Sex Pistols, who happen to be outrageous punksters. It’s like a whole different punkster world that you will never be a part of. You could sooner learn Italian in a week than fall in tight with the punksters. Give it up.

Craigslist Sued

Craigslist is being sued for not complying with fair housing laws.

According to the letter, the suit alleges that one-twentieth of one percent of the housing listings for Chicago contain illegal language.

Among the offensive phrases are “prefer christian roommate;””near St Gertrude’s church;” “Buddhist temple nearby;” “Great apartment for graduate students, married couple, or small family;” and the hate-filled classic, “wants one nice quiet person.”

The Governor of Illinois Thought The Daily Show Was Legit

G-Rod told the AP he didn’t realize the Daily Show was a spoof of the real news when he sat down for an interview with Jason Jones about his executive order requiring pharmacists to fill prescriptions for emergency birth control. In case you missed it , Jones pretended to stumble over Blagojevich’s name before calling him “Governor Smith,” then asked if he was “the gay governor.” At one point Blago looked off camera and asked someone, “Is he teasing me, or is that legit?”

Then again, last night I had the rare pleasure of watching the Colbert Report, and from the way the guest was preaching preaching preaching, you’d think he didn’t know he was on a comedy show.

ListMixer

Here is a pretty interesting site. It’s a social bookmarking site like del.icio.us, but if you don’t visit your bookmarks for 30 days, they disappear. I think that’s a pretty cool way to keep up with things you’re interested in, but only for as long as you’re interested in them. Even better, you can invite other people to join your link pool. So one person in a group bookmarks something as a way to share it with everybody else. Then if nobody in the group is interested in the thing after 30 days, it goes away. If you want to be in my pool, go here.

Oh, and here’s my linkroll. (At this moment, empty.)

Morrissey Might Be a Terrorist – Just So You Know

Well, Morrissey also might be a terrorist, which is too bad.

Singer MORRISSEY was quizzed by the FBI and British intelligence after speaking out against the American and British governments.

Morrissey explains, “The FBI and the Special Branch have investigated me and I’ve been interviewed and taped and so forth.

“They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn’t take them very long to realise that I’m not.”
