Another Blog in trouble

Big Scary Company Trying to Sue Me For Something I Did Not Do

So, the other day I received a copy of a subpoena from a web-company that I do business with. Apparently they received a subpoena for my contact information because of a link to my page on their service from a blog I have never seen before in my life. Apparently, the company that is suing seems to think I write the blog in question (hint: it is not this blog, and this is my only blog).

The claim is that the blog in question contains some information that was obtained and posted illegally. The really scary thing is that the information that was posted seems to be talking about the company that is suing, the CIA, and war crimes. That is some heavy stuff.

The funny thing is that the web service that I do business with includes a link back to my personal site. Yet this company is trying to sue Cafepress for information about who I am. It is kinda tempting to send them a letter saying “hey dip-sh!#$, my name is Jackson Miller. It says it right f*(%!#&& there in your subpoena” (there is a screenshot for the web company I do business with). Of course, I will not really do that since I am a big pussy. Come to think of it, maybe I will.

Good luck to Mr. Miller. When will the people learn?

Cut and Run (new and improved!)

Time for a new 'strategy' from the Democrats:

Murtha pushes new troop withdrawal plan
By ANNE FLAHERTY, Associated Press Writer 9 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - A leading Democratic House Iraq war critic said Wednesday he'll soon push legislation that would order U.S. troop withdrawals to begin in two months and predicted Republicans will swing behind it this time.

I do love the optimism from Murtha on the support he'll garner this time around. This kind of optimistic impulse should usually be rewarded. Maybe a treat of some kind.
In response to Murtha's proposal, House Republican Leader John Boehner said Democrats were ignoring progress in Iraq.

"If they are not listening to reports from our generals today, how does anyone believe they will make an honest and objective decision in September?" Boehner, R-Ohio, said. "Our national security is not a political football, and Republicans aren't going to treat it as such."(link)

And deep into the article we get the money quote from the Republican side. If the Democrats are going to claim a failure before even listening to the reports, what makes us trust them? (nothing if their approval ratings are accurate ~ 14%)

Censure

Feingold must be drunk on his party's successes in Congress:
Sen. Feingold proposes censuring Bush
1 hour, 6 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Liberal Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold said Sunday he wants Congress to censure President Bush for his management of the Iraq war and his "assault" against the Constitution.

But Feingold's own party leader in the Senate showed little interest in the idea. An attempt in 2006 by Feingold to censure Bush over the warrantless spying program attracted only three co-sponsors.

Feingold, a prominent war critic, said he soon plans to offer two censure resolutions — measures that would amount to a formal condemnation of the Republican president. (link)

His last attempt wasn't too good and I wouldn't expect this one to garner much support either. But there is that 14% number to look at and many Democrats may try to use this to bolster their sinking 'mandate'.

With what the Democrats have (not) accomplished already, this bill fits right in with their agenda.
