There is little doubt that our surveillance state is about to take a big step forward. New policing technologies will change the way we live (they always do).
I have no problem with Facebook. In fact I like Facebook. I use it personally to chat with interesting people from around the world every day. It makes my life better, which is what a product should do.
I am looking forward to it. Will Krugman’s cat have any singing parts? A chorus? I hope so.
Sorry, the picture above cracks me up every time and I’ll find any excuse to repost it to the site.
The governments of the world are relentless.
Yes, the Fed is now on Twitter. One can follow the Fed using the handles @themanbehindthecurtain, or @ponziponziponzi, or @gentleBen, or @dollardestroyer1913
I’m kidding of course the real handle is just lame old @federalreserve.
Let’s take a look at what their feed is saying at this moment. I haven’t looked yet.
