Game over for monopolists? (tags)
Elizabeth Warren, for instance, seeks to break up large technology platforms and then use public utility rules to make sure that there are no conflicts of interest in the dominant platform business model.

Jonathan Dale Rapoport Reports Incompetence and Negligence by the Oakland Police Departmen (tags)
The attached event report pertaining to a head injury that caused a concussion and lacerations to the top of my head contains blatant fabrications and shows either complete incompetence by the OPD or a calculated effort by the OPD to renege on its responsibility to do basic police work. I sincerely hope that this poor service is not motivated by the unfavorable publicity that I have published on the “San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center” (http://www.indybay.org) regarding the OPD while working as a freelance journalist.

Whistleblower or Drug Dealer? (tags)
Plaintiff Charles Schlund is suing George Bush for using high-tech TORTURE to silence him in order to prevent him from exposing *massive* high-level corruption in the U.S. government. The government claims that Charles Schlund is a drug user/dealer. Charles Schlund says that he does not use, sell or manufacture drugs. Who is telling the truth? Who is LYING? Charles Schlund's challenge to the U.S. government: TEST ME! Charles Schlund is willing to provide hair samples to be tested IN THE COURTROOM! His hair has not been cut in more than *ten* years. Any use of drugs in the last tens years could be detected. It is time for the government to put up or shut up. Are they willing to test him?

KARL ROVE: THE KING OF DIRT (tags)
After many years as a privacy advocate and author of privacy books, I now reluctantly believe that there's one citizen of the United States who is not entitled to any privacy or solitude, but should be subjected to a relentless campaign of intimidation, harassment, and knavery. In other words, patriotic Americans who believe in fair play should -- within the bounds of the law -- make this person's life a living hell.
