The Corporation Pwnd - Silver Lining 3.0

THIS my, fellow soldiers, is the Official End of Business as Usual.

THIS is the moment where loosely joined independent workers will change how business is done.

THIS has been 10 years in the making. It will not be easy - but it will be transformative.

THIS is the rightful skewering of the bloated corporation, the bleed of the overstuffed startup.

YOU are the new upstart.

Get started.

Won't Evict, Sheriff Dart Says

An American Hero in the War on Economic Terror

CHICAGO (AP) - Residents of foreclosed properties in Chicago and other parts of Cook County don't have to worry about deputies forcing them out. Sheriff Tom Dart says that starting Thursday his office won't take part in evictions.

Dart says he's concerned that many of the people being evicted are renters who were unaware that their landlords have been failing to pay their mortgages. He says his deputies have no way of knowing whether they're removing someone who has defaulted on a loan or someone who has been faithfully paying rent.

Dart says he thinks he's the first sheriff in a major metropolitan area to stop such evictions during the ongoing foreclosure crisis.

McCain's Fear and Loathing

McCain despises otherness. It is why he left his disabled wife. It is why he uses racial slurs and endorses American Exceptionalism, now touted by Palin any chance she gets.

Good video by an author who tackled McCain's "It's Ok That I Hate Gooks" era and why it matters.

That One for President!
