Why many citizens fear attorneys, judges more than terrorists

I have come to fear almost everything having to do with law. Though there are many fine people in the legal profession, and though law is necessary to protect society from descending into chaos, I now fear the legal profession more than I do Islamic terror ...

Barbara Bryan, child/family justice advocate in the Commonwealth for years and now worldwide, observes changes in form but not substance.

Two decades after three middle school age Boy Scouts were felled by a repeat mandated vaccination, their once falsely accused mother notes no substantive features added to Virginia's child protective services (CPS) regulations to prevent the nightmare visited on them by government agents.<br><br>What is true in one state--that CPS and "family" courts are extraconstitutional and accept a reverse presumption: that the accused must prove innocence--is generally true throughout the United States and has been for years. Inducement of "more federal money" was too powerful a lure for counting the cost of liberty.

Why it's smarter to order federally mandated free credit reports via telephone, not the Internet

The World Privacy Forum urges consumers who qualify [1] to order a federally mandated free annual credit report [2] to call the toll free number (877-322-8228) instead of ordering their free credit report online. Calling the toll free number exposes consumers to fewer potential hazards than ordering online. [3] Consumers who try to use the official online site www.annualcreditreport.com may encounter numerous challenges, some of them potentially serious.

A few odd cases show that you don't have be a digital desparado to be accused of a cybercrime... particularly if you embarrass the wrong bureaucrats.

Some recent (and not so recent) cases illustrate how computer security professionals and well intentioned whistle-blowers face a genuine risk of running afoul of computer crime statutes simply for forgetting to ask the right person, "May I'," before doing a computer security assessment. Take the case of Scott Moulten, a computer security professional in Georgia. He was the principal person responsible for computer security (through a private company) for a county in Georgia. The county worked with various cities coordinating and providing 911 Emergency Response Services. When one city wanted to hook up to the county's 911 network, Moulten performed a port scan and throughput test on that city's network to see if the computers were vulnerable to exploit.

Measure would curb L-1 program; H-1B cap decline approaches

Congress has been asked to set restrictions on the L-1 visa, preventing so-called IT body shops from using it as a vehicle to bring in foreign labor. But no move has been made to raise the H-1B cap, set to fall from 195,000 to 65,000 in October.

A 1998 federal law, the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), allows parents to inspect instructional materials used in connection with any U.S. DoE-funded "survey, analysis, or evaluation."

The law, often called the "Hatch amendment" or the "Grassley amendment" for the members of Congress who introduced it, also requires schools to obtain written parental consent before minor students participate in Education Department-funded surveys that ask questions about personal or family matters.

Government has a boundless appetite to inflict senseless pain on Americans, in the guise of the war on drugs, even at the cost of degrading Federalism and the needs and values of the American people. A recent case demonstrates this arrogance handily.

Ed Rosenthal was a medical marijuana supplier who, in compliance with the California Compassionate Use Act, had been growing marijuana for seriously ill people under a doctor's advice and care. Rosenthal was arrested in February, 2002 and accused of supplying marijuana to the Harm Reduction Center in San Francisco. Rosenthal had been deputized by the city of Oakland, California and made the official supplier of a city-sponsored medical marijuana dispensary. The Compassionate Use Act passed with 78 percent of the vote in San Francisco. It took a total of eighty jurors to find twelve willing to convict Rosenthal. Most of those summoned for jury duty said they would not be willing to brand someone a felon for growing or distributing medical marijuana...

The H-1B visa is used to bring skilled workers into the U.S., many of whom are IT workers. The visa is good for up to six years, although it has to be renewed after three years.

The total number of H-1Bs granted last year, 79,100, was sharply lower than in 2001 and far short of the allowed number.
