Make sure to notify your representatives in the House and Senate that we really do need to have a 'national conversation' on this whole 'spying on everybody all the time' thing.
TODAY a top-secret order that enables America to spy on over 100m citizens will be renewed. Or it won't. We really don't know. All that one can be sure of is that...

i got into the #lbpkarting  beta last night.  it was fun and all but the beta does not have the boosting mechanism found in #modnationracers  ... that is a complete a disaster.

hopefully its in the main game, because the graphics and create portions of the game are really good.  and the network code works well so far.  i'll find out more tonight

THE
FCK
"It is an industry made up of accountants and companies like H&R Block and Intuit, which makes the TurboTax software used by many Americans. And it is an industry that, according to ProPublica, has worked hard to keep the IRS from preparing your tax returns for you for free. Intuit, for example, has spent millions lobbying the federal government, opposing bills that would allow the IRS to send you pre-filled-in returns (the agency already has most of your relevant information) and supporting bills that would ban the practice."
