This isn't a coincidence.

Comcast is increasing its broadband internet speeds in areas where Google Fiber is set up, reports The Consumerist. Kansas City is the latest metropolis to see enhanced internet speeds at no additional cost to customers. Those paying for 25 megabit service will get 50 megabits, those paying for 50 megabits will get 105, and those paying for 105 will get a whopping 150 megabits, enough for all but the most voracious video streamers.

A British entrepreneur built a temporary toll road in order to make a little scratch and ease congestion around a closed section of a road between the towns of Bath and Bristol.

At a price of about $3, commuters are lining up to pay the man who is making their lives easier, without any government force necessary to get them to fork over their cash. The man spent approximately $252,000 of his own money to build the road. Bulk passes good for 12 trips are available for $16 bucks. You don't have to take the toll road, of course. You can just detour around it for another ten miles on your trip.

The New York Times reported last week that New York City's pension funds were contributing $40 million to a new "affordable housing" investment pool and expecting to earn a paltry 2.75 percent return.

Gotham's comptroller, Scott Stringer (D), who oversees the city's pension funds and whose primary experience in business was running a failed bar-restaurant in Manhattan in the early 1990s, called this a "sound investment." Ultimately, taxpayers are on the hook for pension fund shortfalls-next year the city will contribute $8 billion or 11% of its budget-so "investments" of this sort are just a covert way of diverting city cash to particular causes.

Putting economies on an energy diet is not the way to fight climate change.

Environmentalists had a global meltdown last week after Australia scrapped its carbon tax. They denounced the move as "retrograde" and "environmental vandalism." They can fume all they want, but Australia's action, combined with Europe's floundering cap-and-trade program, signals that "mitigation" strategies-curbing greenhouse gases by putting economies on an energy diet-are not winning or workable.

Because freedom can't protect itself Government Spying Undermines Media Freedom and Right to Counsel, ACLU- Human Rights Watch Shows

Large-scale U.S. surveillance is seriously hampering U.S.-based journalists and lawyers in their work, the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch said in a joint report released today. Surveillance is undermining media freedom and the right to counsel, and ultimately obstructing the American people's ability to hold their government to account, the groups said. The 120-page report, "With Liberty to Monitor All: How Large-Scale U.S. Surveillance is Harming Journalism, Law, and American Democracy," is based on extensive interviews with dozens of journalists, lawyers, and senior U.S. government officials. It documents how national security journalists and lawyers are adopting elaborate steps or otherwise modifying their practices to keep communications, sources, and other confidential information secure in light of revelations of unprecedented U.S. government surveillance of electronic communications and transactions. The report finds that government surveillance and secrecy are undermining press freedom, the public's right to information, and the right to counsel, all human rights essential to a healthy democracy.

Civil rights activist and independent journalist, Joel Chandler is founder of Florida Open Government Watch. The group conducts regular litmus tests of public records requests to see if police departments are abiding by the law.

Because of the government's inability to keep itself accountable, the duty of public records requests accountability has literally been passed on to the citizen and their ability to seek litigation. In 2009 the Florida Governor's Commission On Open Government Reform delivered a 194 report. In it the blue-ribbon commission opined "...the burden of enforcing violations of Florida's open meetings and public records laws generally falls to citizens who have few alternatives other than seeking an injunction or filing suit in civil court to compel compliance." Luckily there are folks out there like fogwatch.org that are active in compelling compliance.

James "JC" Playford, with American News and Information Services, was reporting on an incident in downtown San Diego when an SDPD officer approached him.

The officer tells Playford to back up and only get long shots. Laughably the officer asserts that Playford cannot be this close to the scene, but ignores the dozens of passers-by walking right through it! During the argument between Playford and the SDPD officer, an informed citizen, Wendy from Seattle, chimes in, "He has a right to film you." "We know the laws in Seattle, we had this happen several times, and of course, you are in the right," she says says to Playford. When Playford asks Wendy if she thinks this cop is ignorant for not allowing him to film Wendy replies, "I don't know if it's ignorance, but it's wanting to control a situation that he cannot."
