When we’ve been there ten thousand years Bright shining as the sun We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise Then when, when we first begun Too many ages false and spent I have already hung This face and flock He saved us by His endless grace will leave me whole Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound To save a wreck like me Continue reading →
50 Years later, the American Government and it’s sycophantic bully boy co-corporationists and their suckup mind & money controlled media stooges are STILL trying to sell the blatantly laughable Warren Commission’s final report on the Assassination of JFKennedy. I just did a search, and truth be told, not even the alternative media are really doing justice to this anniversary. The MainStreamMedia cartel are lobbing memorial bombs at the public and waxing eloquently about that dark day in history when the young JFK was murdered by a lone gunman, and they are drowning us with images of crying hysterical people on the day of his funeral, and talking about his poor bereaved wife Jackie (and what she wore to the funeral, and who made the hat she was wearing on that fateful day….) …. I honestly was more disappointed with the alternative news crowds than with the MSM- at least I KNOW the MSM are a bunch of gutless wonders…. Continue reading →

Google has agreed to pay $17 million to settle an investigation by US states into its use of unauthorized tracking software on Apple Safari Web browsers, officials said Monday.
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the multistate agreement on Google’s “unauthorized placement of cookies on computers using Apple Safari Web browsers during 2011 and 2012.”
Google last year paid a $22.5 million fine to the US Federal Trade Commission on the same issue. The FTC said Google had agreed with the commission in October 2011 not to place tracking cookies or deliver targeted ads to Safari users, but then went ahead and did so.

Too many European banks survived the financial crisis, the head of Europe’s banking regulator said in a newspaper interview on Monday.
“I’m convinced that too few European banks were dismantled and disappeared from the market,” European Banking Authority (EBA) chief Andrea Enria told the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview.
“Barely 40 (disappeared), compared with around 500 in the United States,” he said.
“Governments wanted to keep their banks alive and that has hampered the healing process” of Europe’s financial system, Enria said.
The EBA organised a series of stress tests for European banks in recent years which have been criticised as being too lenient.
A seemingly small derivatives detail could sink global bank wind-down plans. American and European regulators want to standardize contracts to help cross-border lenders fail smoothly. If the problem isn’t fixed, investors could undermine financial stability by calling in swaps. It’s a reminder of how much work still needs to be done to end too big to fail.
Far-right populists are expected to make significant gains in elections for the European Parliament this spring, but the only existing populist group in the body shows these parties can shout as loud as they want but are unlikely to have much influence.
On a rainy November afternoon in his cramped office at the European Parliament in Brussels, Francesco Enrico Speroni, co-chair of the right-wing populist Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group (EFD), does not mince his words: “We have not been successful.”

Today several federal agencies weighed in on the decentralized currency. While most agencies acknowledged its legitimate uses, the Department of Homeland Security referred to Bitcoin as an emerging threat. Continue reading →
