I remember this same debate back when Bill Clinton occupied the White House.  About the only change since then is how readily available strong encryption is, and how much more we're dependent on networked computer systems.
 
Tomorrow FBI director James Comey will be testifying before the U.S. Senate on why he wants to put backdoors in your encryption. We've decided to preemptively debunk the myths and misstatements he's likely to push.
The FBI wants to ensure everyday people can't use strong encryption. For over nine months FBI Director James Comey has been pushing the FBI's twenty-year-old talking points about why he wants to reduce the security in your devices, rather than help you increase it.

Apparently climatology isn't the only field riddled by bad science, irreproducible results, and neglect of results that challenge accepted thinking.
A SIMPLE idea underpins science: “trust, but verify”. Results should always be subject to challenge from experiment. That simple but powerful idea has generated...

I'll need a closer look at what this engine is capable of.
 
Little overview of the Godot engine features ! Finally a full featured, OPEN SOURCE, 2D and 3D game engine ! This could became a real alternative to Unity.
The stable release was released about 15 days ago, so check it out !

This is a great goto list when you run into a B'Lever that uses appeals to authority instead of rational debate and his own intellectual content...

Quote by Nobel Prize Winner For Physics, Ivar Giaever: “I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion.”

Quote by Nobel Prize Winner For Chemistry, Kary Mullis: “Global warmers predict that global warming is coming, and our emissions are to blame. They do that to keep us worried about our role in the whole thing. If we aren't worried and guilty, we might not pay their salaries. It's that simple.

Quote by Martin Keeley, geology scientist: “Global warming is indeed a scam, perpetrated by scientists with vested interests, but in need of crash courses in geology, logic and the philosophy of science.”

Quote by Eduardo Tonni, paleontologist, Committee for Scientific Research, Argentina: “The [global warming] scaremongering has its justification in the fact that it is something that generates funds.”

Quote by George Kukla, climatologist, research scientist with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University: "The only thing to worry about is the damage that can be done by worrying. Why are some scientists worried? Perhaps because they feel that to stop worrying may mean to stop being paid."

This is an example of why I do not trust unconstrained government.
 
Remember the days when kids where allowed to play at a public park unattended without DCF intervention? Remember when kids could get a paper routes & learn value hard earned dollar? Now kid's Kool Aid and lemonade stands are under attack!

Example:

Story goes:


The Green girls just wanted to do something nice for their dad.

Eight-year-old Andria and seven-year-old Zoey, of Overton, Texas, had a plan to take their dad to a local water park for his special day. So they did what many enterprising youths have done in America: they set up a lemonade stand.

According to Zoey, the plan was pretty simple. “We had kettle corn and lemonade. The lemonade was for 50 cents and the kettle corn was a dollar, but if you got both it was a dollar.”

For the first hour it went pretty well, with the girls making $25, according to local TV affiliate KLTV.

That’s when Johnny Law showed up to put the kibosh on the whole operation.

Overton requires two things for an independent food vendor – a $150 “peddler’s permit” and an inspection from the local Board of Health. In the Greens’ case, the city agreed to waive the first but not the second.
Since lemonade is considered a food that requires temperature control to avoid bacteria growth, the stand falls under Texas House Bill 970 and so the stand was shut down. “We have to follow by the state health guidelines. They have to have a permit if they’re going to do the lemonade stands,” said Overton Police Chief Clyde Carter said.

This is hardly the first such closure to draw national attention.

On the flip side, hard work advocate Mike Rowe recently had a much more positive lemonade stand story to share. Rowe took the opportunity to help the young man with his stand learn a little more about how to run a business, put the customer first, and make an honest profit.

The difference in the two attitudes is stark enough to beg the question – are the Greens victims of the law of unintended consequences, or is this consequence entirely intended?


Two Texas girls selling lemonade to raise money for Father's day were shut down by the police for not having a permit from the Health Department.

When can we get proper end to end encryption, with mutual user authentication, as a standard cell phone feature?  Link encryption is of little use if network systems with the key can be compromised.
The spying can happen even on cellular networks using the most advanced encryption now available.
