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.]

US: We stand by Israel at UN

US: We stand by Israel at UN 01 May 2010 The US says it would not withdraw its support for Israel at the UN, denying reports that it would let the body target the occupation of the Palestinian lands.

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.]

Fla. declares emergency over oil spill --As emergency workers prepared for environmental damage along the coast, President Barack Obama said a Gulf oil spill will not deter plans for future drilling. 30 Apr 2010 President Barack Obama sent Justice Department investigators and military aircraft to the Gulf of Mexico Friday in response to the growing fear of the environmental damage that a spreading oil slick may cause, but he declined to abandon plans for new offshore drilling because of the unfolding disaster. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency for six Panhandle counties, saying the slick spill from the Deepwater Horizon platform threatens Florida's coasts "with a major disaster."

Australian accountant faces terror charges

Australian accountant faces terror charges 01 May 2010 Two men, including a US-Australian dual citizen, have been charged with conspiring to give computer advice, buy wrist watches [LOL!] and do other tasks to help al-Qaeda "modernise." A vaguely worded indictment unsealed on Friday (US time) in the federal court in Manhattan accused Wesam El-Hanafi, who was born in Brooklyn, of travelling to Yemen to meet with unnamed al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] members in February 2008. The terrorists "instructed him on operational security measures and directed him to perform tasks for al-Qaeda," the indictment says.

Goldman didn't tell SEC about mortgage moves for months

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. Yet for nine months, until Sept. 20, 2007, the Wall Street giant didn't disclose its actions in key filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in telephone conferences with analysts or in its press releases.

Vera Baker was Obama's mistress: Swiss paper says it has evidence to prove it

Vera Baker was Obama's mistress: Swiss paper says it has evidence to prove it 30 Apr 2010 (Gather) Swiss newspaper Le Matin is reviving old claims that President Barack Obama had an extramarital affair in 2004 with Vera Baker, a young woman who worked on his campaign team when he was running for Illinois Senator. 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.]

Govt declares national disaster as oil reaches Louisiana coast 30 Apr 2010 US President Barack Obama is dispatching senior cabinet members, including the heads of homeland security and environmental protection, to assess the situation in the Gulf of Mexico as a BP oil spill reached the shores of Louisiana early on Friday. Oil from a giant slick hit the US Gulf Coast on Thursday evening, prompting Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (T) to declare a state of emergency and call for the federal government’s help in averting an environmental disaster. [Oh dear. The little puke 'calling for the federal government's help' is not going to *sit well* with his  FreedumbWorks paymasters. --LRP]

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.

Occidental's profit nearly triples; BP's more than doubles

Occidental's profit nearly triples; BP’s more than doubles --Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell also report higher first-quarter earnings than in 2009. British Petroleum's earnings report draws ire as the Gulf of Mexico oil spill grows. 30 Apr 2010 Higher crude prices are again pumping up profits of major oil companies worldwide. Occidental Petroleum Corp. nearly tripled its net income compared with a year earlier, with $1.1 billion, or $1.32 a share, in the first quarter of 2010, the Westwood company said Thursday. The announcement came during a week in which most of the giants of oil and gas reported sharp increases in quarterly earnings... But it was London-based BP, with quarterly profits that rose to $6.1 billion from $2.6 billion a year earlier, that was the lightning rod for ire over huge earnings in the midst of a deadly and growing disaster.

Arizona immigration law: Tougher restrictions sought

'Rep. Sinema called the change 'frightening.'' Arizona immigration law: Tougher restrictions sought 29 Apr 2010 A conference committee of legislative Republicans and Democrats has approved several changes to Arizona's new immigration law. The changes still need final approval from both the House and the Senate before being passed along to the governor. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix, the lone Democrat that showed up for the committee, opposed the changes -- and the new law as a whole. Sinema said the revised version is even worse than what became law because it now requires a representative of a city, county or the state to determine immigration status in cases where they are responding to violations of city or county ordinance, such as a barking dog or tall weeds in the yard.
