Private Server

Another fine suggestion For the Hillary 2016 Campaign, from your friends at the makeaneffort methadone clinic.  (with apologies to the beautiful and brilliantly talented Ms. Tina Turner)

All the emails come to this place
And the emails are all the same
You don’t look at their classification
And you don’t ask their names

You don’t think of them as important
You don’t think of them at all
You keep your mind on the presidency
Keeping your eyes on the polls

I’m your private server, a server for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private server, a server for money
And any old email will do

I want to make a million dollars
I want to live in the White House
Have a husband and some children

Yeah, I guess I want immunity too
All the emails come to the place
And the emails are all the same
You don’t look at their classification
And you don’t ask their names

I’m your private server, a server for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private server, a server for money
And any old email will do

Deutch marks or dollars
Chinese Yuan will do nicely, thank you
Let me loosen up your collar
Tell me, do you want to hear me do that negro accent again?

E-mail is Forever…

A Hillary Campaign theme suggestion from the always helpful folks at Makeaneffort. (with apologies to Ms. Shirley Bassey)

Email is forever
They are all I need to please me
They can stimulate and tease me
They won’t leave in the night, I’ve no fear that they might desert me

Emails are forever
Print it out and then caress it
Touch it, stroke it and undress it
I can see every part, nothing hides in the heart to hurt me

I don’t need love
For what good will love do me?
Email never lies to me
For when love’s gone they’ll luster on

Email is forever
Sparkling round my little finger
Unlike men, the email lingers
Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for

I don’t need love
For what good will love do me?
Email never lies to me
For when love’s gone they’ll luster on

Email is forever, forever, forever
Email is forever, forever, forever
Forever and ever

On the heals of a random hacker delivering over 30K of Hillary’s emails to the FBI… we felt like we needed to lend a helping hand.

You’re welcome.

(She could just stick with Diamonds are Forever… given her penchant for expensive vacations.)

A True Must Read


Worth repeating… and repeating…

Originally posted on The Praetorian Writers Group:

For anyone who wants a greater understanding of the current context, here and around the world, you need to do at least two things: (1) Read anything that Kevin Williamson writes, and (2) read thisparticular essay by Williamson.

Some remarks about the piece, operating from the assumption that you’ll read it. (or that you have already! :) )

  • I love the word problems! Williamson walks you through the theories, and realities, of economics with some simple word problems about elementary school kids and their teachers. They’re hilarious, and instructive.
  • The essay’s title is: “Welcome to the Paradise of the Real.” In the column, Williamson demonstrates conclusively that the whining and complaining that many of our fellow Americans do is … kind of pathetic. He provides that absolutely vital thing that so many need so desperately: perspective. The poorest among us live like kings compared to (1) most others in…

I just Realized I’m Micro-Aggressive!


In Fact, it appears I’m Micro-Aggressive as Hell…

Once it was fully explained to me (Actually, I was introduced to the existence of such horrid behavior by a friend of the blog, Canadian Rattlesnake.), I realized what a terrible person I truly am…  Worse even than I already knew.

But I’ll let the pictures tell the story…


You might be asking “What’s wrong with the ‘other’ kind?”


I even put bratwurst in these… does it get any ‘whiter’?




Not a brown one in the bunch.


I’m a cliche.


Definitely some kind of privilege going on here.


Man, do I suck.


Not even a print!


I have no excuses!  Mine is a Vanilla World!

Even my Chocolate is White on the Inside.

And WAY TOO MANY Metaphors to deal with here...

And, WAY TOO MANY Metaphors to deal with here…

 I feel terrible!

I’ve got nothing left to do but…


What Spies Do…

(Update: The Question is finally being asked…)

(Update 082015:  This post was from March…  Why does it take six months to address the Large Points?)

There is a large point being missed with regard to the latest revelation of a U.S. Secretary of State creating, and using exclusively, an outside conduit of communication to their reports, and associates, within the Department of State.


When committing Espionage a Spy must find a way to communicate information without appearing to do so. This is not difficult to understand.

Hollywood might have you believe Spies find interesting little pieces of information and covertly send that information to the interested party of choice. But that’s the movies.  And, small amounts of information have lesser value than Huge Amounts of Information.  Seems self-evident.

If you want to be “The Most Transparent Administration, and State Department, in History!”, one way to achieve that is to give full access to…

(Well, when We The People hear that phrase repeated ad nauseam, we think the Administration is speaking to Us. It’s entirely possible the Administration was speaking to someone completely different. If that is the case, it would clear up the confusion We The People have when it comes to the supposed ‘Transparency’ of this current Administration.  It also begs to question Who Else may have created their own “home-made” ISP upon which to communicate?)

… other countries.

What better way to do the above than to create an entirely separate network that can easily be tapped into?

In other words, Creating a Method of Communication outside of Federally Protected Channels may extend well beyond the desire to avoid the Damned Prying Eyes of the ‘Stupid’ American Public’s FIOA requests.

It would certainly make it convenient for a Foreign Power to access and monitor all communications within that channel… without the Damned Prying Eyes of those tasked with protecting the Secrets and Security of the United States.

While those who created such a network would obviously deny such intent…

That question must be explored.

When it Looks like Espionage, Walks like Espionage and Talks like Espionage… it might just be Espionage.

May be the NSA can take a break from Spying on Us and re-task some folks to find out Who else was attached to Eric Hoteham’s ISP.

With the NSA Spying on Everybody, Who Could Blame Me?

– said Hillary Clinton today when asked why she decided to have a private server outside of the State Department while serving as Secretary of State.

Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?

I have a simple question.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?

Admittedly, it is difficult to lay complete blame for the drug violence on Mexico when we (the U.S. citizenry) are consuming the product of, and we (the U.S. government) are arming, the drug cartels. So let’s be generous and say “we” are responsible for 60% of the problem. Seem reasonable? So why do we only hear about our 60%? What about the other 40%?

Considering the lines outside emigration services yesterday it struck me that Mexico was doing nothing to help “legitimize” the status of the individuals in line. But to Mexico’s defense even if they had I’m not sure it would have been warmly received.  In fact, several of the “on scene” interviews sounded more like asylum cases in that the individual would run down a list of how inhospitable and outright dangerous Mexico is. The idea of going back, to them, would be cruel and unusual punishment for crime they did not commit.  While I personally enjoy Mexico and find it to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth… I do not necessarily disagree, but it lends to the larger issue.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?  If so, what?

Let’s say Canadians were flooding across the border for reasons of escape… (which in some medically related scenarios is not so far-fetched) would we be so tolerant of the Canadian government as to continuously find ways to blame ourselves? And since we’re on that topic… blame ourselves for what? Is it our fault that we cling to the final visage of Free-Market Capitalism in the world and the prosperity it promulgates, thus creating a more desirable alternative than the place these folks are escaping from?

So why are we quiet in regard to Mexico?

Why exactly is it not Mexico’s responsibility to create that same atmosphere for their citizens?  (The same applies to all Latin American countries given our current predicament.)

Why should Mexico be absolved of the international cry to improve their economy, create jobs and control crime repeatedly leveled at the U.S.?  It’s certainly not a lack of natural resources, ports, or favorable climate… It’s clearly not the lack of population or strong work ethic. So why?

Partly it is a U.S. media predisposed to self loathe U.S. success and prosperity. It simply is not in vogue to appreciate the Capitalist system our country was founded on, assuming they know what that is, or the riches realized from it. The flip side of that is a programmed desire not to criticize Socialist countries, not because it might make the country look bad but because they would have to look in the mirror and re-evaluate their personal beliefs.

The final aspect is Political Correctness and the fear of being labeled racist should anyone step up and offer the truth. They know the first Journalist to speak out loud that ‘Mexico shares the blame for our border problems and must own their economic woes’ will be labeled a bigot who hates… I don’t even know anymore… Mexicans? Hispanics? Latinos? Mayans? Aztecs? Spaniards? I mean seriously. The world is cosmopolitan. Having a Spanish surname means little here in the U.S. but the census still counts you as Hispanic… because that’s how the money is handed out.  Rest assured, someone would be offended somewhere, so you’d be a bigot somehow.
All I’m asking for is reasoned, rational, discussion.

What I’m saying simply is there must be a focus on other countries responsibility when it comes to their citizenry and internal economic problems.

Unfortunately it seems all too easy to blame the U.S. for all the ills in the world, especially by our own journalists. When I say “easy”, I mean both comfortably and safely. They are comfortable because they believe it, and they are safe because they know as long as they blame the U.S. First… there will be no punishment directed at them from the industry of the offended.

Think about the comments from the EU and how the problems they suffer are always the fault of United States.  The starvation and disease in Africa is our fault.  The illegal immigration problem right here in the U.S. is our fault… because, like every other country in the world including Mexico,  we don’t openly accept just anyone who crosses the border.  It’s stunning how the world expects us to bend in every way imaginable while they conduct themselves in a way of “business as usual”.

It’s also stunning that absolutely no attention is paid to how we became a country that could help those less fortunate on our borders… and around the world.  But here’s a hint… it wasn’t by giving all of our stuff away.

I am a Capitalist.  As such, this is not a cry to seal the borders and not let anyone in, or pull all of our Diplomats home.  On the contrary, I like tall fences and wide gates.  I expect to have access to the best products at the best prices for my self-determined needs.  Having emissaries abroad is important to communicate the benefits of freedom and liberty of the individual as well as aid those who wish to embrace it for themselves in their own countries.

But there needs to be rational and reasonable assessments when determining the foundation of problems lest no solutions can ever be arrived at.

Unless that’s the point.

For more on “the point”: La Gran Mentira

(A repost from 8/16/12, since illegal immigration is now being used to destroy the Constitution’s Separation of Powers.  It’s dated, but brings up what I believe to be an important question.  What are we saying about Mexico?  Are we delaying a Revolution?  If so, to whose benefit?  And if we are delaying a Revolution, is it serving to make Mexico, and Latin America as a whole, more Fragile?)
