'Do not track' bill to protect online privacy worries some lawmakers | Technology | Los Angeles Times"Do not track" legislation, designed to protect online consumers from companies tracing their digital footprints on the Web, is worrying some lawmakers, who on Thursday warned that such a move could damage the Internet economy. "What will happen to advertising-supported Internet content?" said Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.), who could chair a key subcommittee dealing with online privacy when Republicans take control of the House in January. "We need to be mindful not to enact legislation that would hurt a recovering economy."
I just had to pop in for this special post. Kudos to Nancy Pelosi for bringing the vote to the floor on extending the the tax cuts for households with an income under $250,000 a year. By the way, the thing that virtually no one mentions is that everyone would get a tax break on their first $250,000 of income. People who are lucky enough to make more would just pay a higher rate on the higher earnings (which, in many cases, are not earned at all!) One more thing before I get to the names… The only thing that would have made this more substantial would be if Pelosi introduced a companion bill to be voted on immediately after this one.
It's been revealed that JP Morgan Chase suspected Bernie Madoff's investments were "too good to be true" in the two months leading up to the Ponzi schemer's arrest, during which time the bank kept doing business with him anyway. According to ABC News , lawyers representing Madoff's victims have filed a $6.4 billion lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase, claiming the bank "continued its relationship with Madoff despite having documented suspicions about him." Indeed, a " Suspicious Activity Report " shows that the bank's London office was, well, suspicious of Madoff's investment returns in October 2008. Madoff was arrested December 11 of that year.
SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - There was court appearance Friday for the man accused of running a virtual bomb factory out of his home in Escondido. Prosecutors are dismissing state charges against 54-year-old George Jakubec, but he's now been indicted on federal charges. In a nine-count federal indictment handed up Thursday, George Djura Jakubec, 54, was charged with illegal manufacturing of destructive devices, illegal possession of destructive devices, bank robbery, attempted bank robbery and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime. The federal indictment alleges that on or before Nov. 18, Jakubec made destructive devices, including nine detonators and 13 grenade hulls with unknown quantities of high explosives. Jakubec was arrested last month after a gardener, Mario Garcia, 49, of Fallbrook, was injured when he stepped on something akin to a mine in Jakubec's backyard.

The plan, of course, was to come back later and make the thing permanent, never mind the impact on the deficit. But that never happened. And so here we are, with 2010 almost over and nothing resolved.
One of the supreme pieces of hypocrisy in Washington right now is all the politicians crying treason and death penalty on Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, when many of them are up to their gills in money arranged for them from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee . In 2003 Larry Franklin, the ‘go-to man on Iran’ at the Pentagon under undersecretary of defense for planning Douglas Feith, carried a draft confidential finding on Iran out of the building and gave it to Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman of AIPAC’s Middle East Bureau. They not only were happy to receive the classified document, but they ran with it right over to the Israeli Embassy and delivered it to Naor Gilon, the embassy official with the Iran portfolio. Rosen and Weissman, and probably AIPAC in general , were under FBI surveillance on suspicion of espionage, and that is how they were caught. The FBI field officers were astonished when Franklin came into the picture unexpectedly.
