All Drugs are the Same?
NOT REALLY!!!, but some cause similar effects to a certain part of the brain in lab rats abusing speed PCP & LSD. read about it on the scienceblog.
Becoming a Business
The internet is such an open environment that it will drive the driven to success. The problem is the success can be crushing and confusing...cause great inner conflict.
Today I would not describe myself as an all star success, but in a year things have changed a bunch.
The very software which publishes this page has owners. They recently went through a year of rapid change. For a short while their feedback networks were quiet because they had investment relationships they had to keep quiet about.
I could take much of what I know and spread that to great financial gain, but am confused as to what that is for. Yesterday I spent thousands of dollars advertising for a client. Today I do my first taxes as a business. Later this week I will be starting a project where I make nearly the entire amount of what I made last year working for other people.
to describe the situation as anything but scary would be wrong...

US Government Aims To Repeal First Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Why then do we aim to punish ad networks which allow online casinos to advertise? Do I use online casinos? nope. Do they hurt me? nope.
I have seen many billboards on the interstate advertising the poor tax which our lotto system is. Nothing wrong with tax payer money going to advertize the extraction of wealth from the poor though.
Big casinos are making millions of dollars. This is where the problem actually comes from. Casinos like Foxwood are not leveraging their market dominance to expand their brand reach. To protect their profits they are coupling with the religious right wing idiots in our government to try to punish Google and other companies for setting up a good ad network with strong distribution.

The Power of Terrorism & The Reason for Terrorism
Many people think terrorists are these horrible people. In their own eyes many of these terrorists are doing work of love for their god. If we didn't screw people and support Israel then most of this would never happen.
If Al Queda was involved with the terrorist attack on Spain then they got exactly what they wanted out of it. The Spanish government has been overthrown and the United States is loosing support.
Terrorism has effects far beyond who it directly reaches. Proper timing and a few deaths can cause massive irreversable social change. We are close minded in that we fail to recognize the # of people starving to death every day, but we let a bomb that kills a few hundred or few thousand people change our whole way of living.
If Al Queda can not easily directly effect us, then they can make it hard for others to support us. Eventually the greed of our shithead leaders (This is you BUSH) will rot our position unless we replace them.
