Copywrite Overlord Plan

"The MPAA and RIAA have submitted their master plan for enforcing copyright to the new Office of Intellectual Property Enforcement. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Richard Esguerra points out, it's a startlingly distopian work of science fiction. The entertainment industry calls for:

  • spyware on your computer that detects and deletes infringing materials;
  • mandatory censorware on all Internet connections to interdict transfers of infringing material;
  • border searches of personal media players, laptops and thumb-drives;
  • international bullying to force other countries to implement the same policies;
  • and free copyright enforcement provided by Fed cops and agencies (including the Department of Homeland Security!).
There's a technical term for this in policy circles. I believe it's "Totally insane.""

Big Content's dystopian wish-list for the US gov't: spyware, censorship, physical searches and SWAT teams

Lost Ep #611 - Happily Ever After - Quick and Dirty
No "previously on Lost" intro

How did Widmore get Dez away from the hospital? There's no way Penny would have left.

Widmore kidnapped Dez right around Ajira

How does Widmore know that the Island isn't done with Dez?

How does Widmore know ANYTHING?

External Blockhouse - wood

What does that generator run on?

Another white rabbit - named Angstrom

Widmore is running light - his science team is the same as his muscle

"If everything I've been told about you is true, you'll be fine" - TOLD BY WHO?

My son died here on this Island - Faraday?

Jesus Desmond, don't go between the coils!

Coils flash us to LA post-landing of Oceanic 815

Dez "not a big fan of surprises"

Minkowski is picking up Dez - in Timeline1 he was freighter's communication's officer.

Limo driver is a step down.

Dez was "closing a deal for the boss". "boss's right-hand man" - bet the boss is Widmore

Painting of scales (as in justice) on Widmore's office wall

Ship model

Timeline2 Faraday is musician

Faraday2 and Charlie2 are supposed to play together

Another shot of MacCutcheon

What does Dez2 say for a toast "Sanjal?"

Dez2 should have brought muscle

"There's always a choice, brutha"

Red bushes

Charlie2 really knows how to party

Another "Charlie drowning" scenario

Hand held up - Dez2 sees T1 - "Not Penny's Boat"

MRI mirrors Widmore's Island Coil machine

It's a hospital, of course Jack Shepard2 is there

At least Desmond2 has regular clothes, Charlie2 hard to take seriously with ass hanging out.

Charlie2's right, none of "this" (Timeline2/flashsideways) matters, because it isn't real.

Ms. Hawking2 married to Widmore2 - they deserve each other

"What happened, happened"

Ms. Hawking2 knows that Dez can't see the list

"A Violation" of WHAT?

Dez2 has everything/what he always wanted in this fantasy world - he's not supposed to be poking at the bounderies YET. Once again Hawking knows the inner rules.

Why isn't getting together with Penny not what Desmond most wants?

Dez is Faraday's constant.

Charlie2 and Faraday2 want to talk about LOVE, brutha

Faraday2 saw Charlotte, got connected to Timeline1

Stadium where Desmond met Jack, now Penny is doing the running. At least she didn't trip.

Back to the Island

Why didn't Zombie-Sayid kill Zoe Tina Fey?

Post-Zap Island Desmond is really freaky. He knows something. And he's VERY agreeable.

This time Desmond is the one who falls down.

Of course Limo Driver George can get an airline manifest.

"If We Were A Country That Actually Lived Under The Rule Of Law, This Would Be A Huge Story"

"...all 3 federal judges to consider the question have concluded that Bush's NSA program violated the criminal law (FISA). That law provides that anyone who violates it has committed a felony and shall be subject to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each offense. The law really does say that. Just click on that link and you'll see. It's been obvious for more than four years that Bush, Cheney, NSA Director (and former CIA Director) Michael Hayden and many other Bush officials broke the law -- committed felonies -- in spying on Americans without warrants. Yet another federal judge has now found their conduct illegal. If we were a country that actually lived under The Rule of Law, this would be a huge story, one that would produce the same consequences for the lawbreakers as a bank robbery, embezzlement or major drug dealing. But since we're not such a country, it isn't and it doesn't.

...

In December, 2005, The New York Times revealed that the Bush administration had been doing for years exactly that which the law unambiguously said was a felony: eavesdropping on the electronic communications of Americans (telephone calls and emails) without warrants. We knew then it was a crime. Three federal judges have now concluded that it was illegal. And yet not only do we do nothing about it, but we stand by as the Obama administration calls this criminal program a vital "state secret" and desperately tries to protect it and the lawbreakers from being subject to the rule of law. This decision may make it more difficult for the Obama administration to hide behind sweeping secrecy claims in the future, but it won't negate the fact that we have decided that our leading political officials are completely free to commit crimes while in power and to do so with total impunity."

The criminal NSA eavesdropping program



Oh, NOW You're Worried About the Constitution

"You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in  Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.  Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans...oh hell no. "
