"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."

As a legal noose appears to be tightening around the Bush/Cheney/Rove inner circle, a shocking government report shows the floor under the legitimacy of their alleged election to the White House is crumbling.

The latest critical confirmation of key indicators that the election of 2004 was stolen comes in an extremely powerful, penetrating report from the Government Accountability Office that has gotten virtually no mainstream media coverage.

Have you ever read something so irrational that you just kept shaking your head and couldn't seem to stop? My head is still shaking from disbelief at the incredible ignorance of some people.

Homeschooling is nothing new, it has been around as long as people have populated the planet. The very idea that a public school with all it's bells and whistles, stop watches, administrators and the tidal wave of strangers influencing our children, is better for children than being taught by good 'ole mom and pop is sheer nonsense.

ONTARIO - A fake grenade packed in a suitcase spurred security officials to evacuate part of a terminal at Ontario International Airport, resulting in missed flights and flight delays, authorities said.

The chrome, pineapple-shaped device was spotted by security screeners about 6 a.m. Thursday. Its owner told police it was only a car gear shift knob, but the bomb squad was called in as a precaution to detonate it.

I was perusing an article about homeschooling in Tennessee, when a funny thing struck me. In Tennessee, you have several options if you want to homeschool:

(a) register with the local school district; (b) register with a church school; or (c) operate as a satellite of a church school. Which raises an interesting question: does the ability to register via a church represent a violation of the separation of church and state?

The dollar’s downward trend has not been broken since I wrote a column about the subject in December.

In fact, the trend seems to be accelerating. Bill Gates openly stated yesterday he is pulling out of the dollar and is instead investing in euros.

Google has backed down in a trademark dispute over its new email service, forcing it to rebrand its UK service as Google Mail.

The internet giant said it had refused to bow to "exorbitant" demands - believed to be around $50m - from a British company that has applied for the Gmail trademark and would rename its UK service from this morning. Independent International Investment Research claims it registered the trademark in May 2002, two years before Google chose the name for its new email service. Rather than face further protracted negotiations, Google said it had decided to abandon the Gmail name, despite what it described as IIIR's "tenuous" claim.

Second-Amendment defenders are urging Congress to defeat an amendment slipped into an otherwise favorable bill that would require licensed gun dealers to supply a trigger-lock device with every handgun sold.

The underlying bill â€" H.R. 800, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act â€" would help protect the firearms industry from frivolous lawsuits brought by cities, municipalities and radical anti-gun interest groups, said Gun Owners of America, or GOA.

Like much news that's damaging to the Bush administration, the report came out on a Friday.

Since then, it's gotten little media attention -- just 41 mentions in U.S. newspapers and wire stories, according to a news database search on October 11. That's remarkably sparse coverage for a story showing that the U.S. government has been engaged in illegal propaganda aimed at its own citizens.

A matter of $1.16 in unpaid taxes has led to the arrest of a former Miss Ohio. Deborah Combs of Loveland, Ohio, says she was pulled over and treated as if she were a violent criminal.

"One sheriff approached my car with his hand on his gun," she told WLWT-TV in Cincinnati. "Another sheriff from the other side of the car leaned in to me and said, 'Are you Deborah Combs' ... We've got a warrant for your arrest.' I was absolutely shocked!"

Outsourcing Pipeline

While offshoring call center work to India can save businesses millions, the practice can very quickly become a boondoggle if quality of service slips. The latest example of this came last week when a British Telecom executive called those customers who c

With those words, Bushell flunked marketing 101. She is effectively blaming the customer for a problem of BT's own making. How else does she expect customers to respond if they're forced to deal with an agent who, in the worst case, is unintelligible and, in the best case, is restricted to walking callers through a forest of scripted responses that may have little bearing on the problem at hand' This isn't just an issue for BT. In my own experience of late, I've noticed a sharp decline in the English proficieny of the Indian call center workers I deal with in my daily life. I think the reason is fairly obvious. More and more businesses are rushing to place call center work in India but the country's supply of workers capable of conversing freely in English as it is spoken in the West is limited. More and more, Indians with marginal English skills are being put into customer facing call center positions with predictable results--frustration at both ends of the call. This bodes ill for the growth of the Indian call center industry. IT outsourcing to the country will continue to skyrocket because technical work is not as dependent on language and heavy accents don't matter so much when writing, say, a Web services application. But call center work is quite different. As more and more businesses receive complaints about poor customer service from India, I suspect many of them will reevaluate whether the savings are worth it. There are plenty of middle-cost areas where English is the first language, such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, or middle America, that may provide better overall value for a company's call center dollar. Those are places with which Meryl Bushell and BT should become more familiar, instead of just blaming their customers for refusing to accept poor service.
