No .. they haven’t, but that was never the point.Those who used the phoney  ‘war on terror’ to legitimize riding rough-shod over civil rights and  the constitution, turning America into a surveillance state, won.Those who used ‘terrorism’ as an excuse for  foreign wars of choice that the public wouldn’t have otherwise supported  won.Those who’ve make fortunes out of the unnecessary foreign wars and the vast ‘terror  industry’ at home and abroad won.They’re the winners. The American people are the ones who lost, along with the hundreds of thousands dead in the middle-east who lost even more.

    Elle Dark: The Long Suicide of Stumbleupon

    elledark:

    I noticed a Stumbleupon ‘news flash’ today saying .. “We plan to start migrating everyone into the new StumbleUpon design in early March”. So now we know.

European nighttime
Parts of a number of European nations appear in this nighttime image taken from the International Space Station in Feb. 2, 2012. The scene shows the British Isles (left, partially obstructed by one of the space station’s solar array panels) with London just right of bottom center; the English Channel, which is dark; Paris (lower right corner); and the Netherlands (right side). The greenish airglow is fairly uniform and minor until it transitions to daybreak on the right.

    Click here to stop the newest threat to Internet freedom

    ACTA%3A%20The%20new%20threat%20to%20the%20net
    A new global treaty, ACTA, could allow corporations to police what we do on the Internet. Last week we successfully pushed back the US censorship bills A.C.T.A. and P.I.P.A. — if we act now, we can get the EU Parliament to bury this new threat — add your voice now!
