GAO: Census has computer problem created in early '08

GAO: Census has computer problem created in early '08 30 Apr 2010 A computer system that the Census Bureau needs to manage its door-to-door count of the U.S. population remained buggy and prone to crash a day before enumerators were set to begin their work, government officials said Friday. The bureau's Paper Based Operations Control System did not function reliably in tests and, despite hardware and software upgrades, "may not be able to perform as needed under full operational loads," the U.S. Government Accountability Office said in a report. The paper-based system's hasty design began in early 2008, after the census bureau scrapped plans to use a handheld-computer method that ended up costing more than $700 million but did not operate adequately. [Sounds like a Bush corporaterrorist crony got a bl*w job to implement another failed system.]

Obama Says Liberal Courts May Have Overreached

Oh no. It's the oh-too-familiar Obama 'I'm about to f*ck the left' foreshadowing: Obama Says Liberal Courts May Have Overreached 29 Apr 2010  In a seeming rejection of liberal orthodoxy, President Obama has spoken disparagingly about liberal victories before the Supreme Court in the 1960s and 1970s -- suggesting that justices made the "error" of overstepping their bounds and trampling on the role of elected officials. Mr. Obama made his remarks Wednesday night against a backdrop of recent Supreme Court rulings in which conservative justices have struck down laws favored by liberals, most notably a January ruling that nullified restrictions on corporate spending to influence elections.

BP Fought Safety Measures at Deepwater Oil Rigs

BP Fought Safety Measures at Deepwater Oil Rigs --Owner of Louisiana Oil Well Objected to System That Would Have Shut Off Spill 30 Apr 2010 BP, the company that owned the Louisiana oil rig that exploded last week, spent years battling federal regulators over how many layers of safeguards would be needed to prevent a deepwater well from this type of accident. One area of immediate concern, industry experts said, was the lack of a remote system that would have allowed workers to clamp shut Deepwater Horizon's wellhead so it would not continue to gush oil. The rig is now spilling 210,000 gallons of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico. In a letter sent last year to the Department of the Interior, BP objected to what it called "extensive, prescriptive regulations" proposed in new rules to toughen safety standards. "We believe industry's current safety and environmental statistics demonstrate that the voluntary programs…continue to be very successful." [This is *bullsh*t.* Five years from now, BP will be appealing their seven hundred-dollar fine to the High Wh*re Court, which will quietly concur with the corporaterrorists. Start reading. Arming the Left: Is the time now? By Charles Southwell 21 Oct 2003.]

Goldman didn't tell SEC about mortgage moves for months 30 Apr 2010 In December 2006, Goldman Sachs embarked on a frantic effort to shed billions of dollars in risky mortgage securities and purchase exotic insurance to protect itself against what it had concluded could be the collapse of America's housing market.

The paper claims "video surveillance tapes exist that are rather compromising for the 44th president of the United States." It also alleges that software engineers have dug up email exchanges between Obama and Baker since he has been President. [I don't deny that Obama f*cked this woman, but I'm more concerned with how he has f*cked his other supporters, not that I'm one of them, or ever was. I knew he was a fraud from the outset. --MDR, Ph.D.]

Gulf spill is really a river of oil, environmentalists say

Gulf spill is really a river of oil, environmentalists say 29 Apr 2010 To understand the gravity of the danger facing Louisiana's coast from the oil that began washing ashore Thursday, pollution clean-up veterans offered this starting point: Forget the word "spill." "This isn't a spill," said Kerry St. Pe, who headed Louisiana's oil spill response team for 23 years. "This isn't a storage tank or a ship with a finite amount of oil that has boundaries. This is much, much worse." It's a river of oil flowing from the bottom of the Gulf at the rate of 210,000 gallons a day that officials say could be running for two months or more.
