The REAL Voter Fraud

If you ask people about voter fraud, most will admit it's a serious issue, and it IS. People casting votes they're not entitled to is a serious problem around the country, and something needs to be done about it. What's currently being done is NOT the solution though. Current Voter Fraud proposals don't address the issue, they just disenfranchise people, and that's not only bad, that's utterly unacceptable.

Browser Benchmarks: Firefox10 Vs. Chrome16 (WIN7)

Following on from my earlier tests of browsers in Vista, I now present the Windows7 results. In case you were expecting things to fall the same way, you’d be surprised.

Browser Benchmarks: Firefox10 Vs. Chrome 16 (VISTA)

A few days later than planned, but here at last, is the NEW test of browsers. It’s been about 6 months since I last tested them, and all of them have moved on. Well, all except for Internet Explorer 9, which handily gives us a nice benchmark for last time.

We will be testing Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer9, Chrome, and Safari. Compared with the results of last year, not long after Firefox5 came out, how have things changed?

The Constitution is Just a Piece of Paper

The US as an ‘idea’ is dying. The country that used to pride itself on free speech, democracy, and being ‘the last remaining superpower’, is now apparently drunk on its own power. With unchecked powers expanding at every turn, and terror laden missives booming out from government departments, the country seems to be taking a counterbalancing position from those who embraced freedom in the Arab Spring of last year, and is actively cracking down on freedoms previously embraced as a national advert.
