Big Brother Is Still Watching You: Don't Fall For The NSA's Latest Ploy

Supposedly the NSA is going to stop collecting certain internet communications that merely mention a foreign intelligence target.

The Inconvenient Truth About Electric Vehicles

Electricity is a specialty product. It's not appropriate for transportation. It looks cheap at this time, but that's because it was designed for toasters, not transportation. Increase the amount of wiring and infrastructure by a factor of a thousand, and it's not cheap.

The Relentless Push Towards War

"The only real constant to be found in both European and US politics is war. It doesn’t seem to matter who’s in office in the US - Republican/Democrat, conservative/liberal - there’s a war machine constantly running.
