    There are at least five easy ways to make AR15 receivers at home. 1. Purchase an 80% blank and finish it with a drill, files and patience, it gets easier with a Dremel type tool. Or use a drill and mill and skill. Many videos on how to do it  are available on the Internets. There are numerous sites on the Internets vying for profits, good reviews, and price point. 2. Purchase an 80% receiver and finish it with a programed CDC machine, i.e. the Ghost gunner. Order it on the Internets. The Ghost Gunner has an excellent reputation...

    Facebook has finally responded to requests to stop tracking users for advertising. But they aren’t going to. Instead, Facebook is going to force all of those who continue to use their social media service to accept being tracked around the internet. “People can choose to not be on Facebook if they want,” said Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman. Or, they will be forced to opt into being tracked everywhere they go, and that’s just the way it is. This decision was not made in the interest of the users of Facebook, but explicitly to keep the company’s business model “intact,”...
  • A Job for Rubio-Cruz: Save the Web (stop BHO plan to internationally censor US open internet)

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | May 22, 2016 | GORDON Crovitz
    Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, back from the campaign trail, have something productive to do in Washington. They’ve taken the lead against President Obama’s plan to give up U.S. protection of the open Internet. The Obama administration announced in 2014 it would end U.S. oversight by canceling the Commerce Department’s long-standing contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann. Despite enormous effort over the past two years by the multi-stakeholder community of network engineers and developers, no one found an alternative to U.S. stewardship that would protect the global Internet from censorship by authoritarian regimes. The...

    Former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush poked fun at one another over their social media presences on Wednesday.... 'Received my copy of #41 by #43, George W. Bush,' Clinton tweeted. 'Touching tribute! #HowAreYouSTILLNotOnTwitter #PresidentialTweeters.' 'Thanks, 42! Hope you like the book about your pal, #41. #HowAreYouSTILLNotOnInstagram #PresidentialGrammers #BrotherFromAnotherMother.' His Instagram snap currently has over 17,500 likes. The Washington Post, which first reported on the presidential social media exchange, pointed out that Clinton asked Bush about his lack of Twitter presence in February. 'Happy #PresidentsDay – to #44 (@BarackObama), #43 (#HowAreYouNotOnTwitter?), #41 (@GeorgeHWBush), & #39. #PresidentialTweeters,' he wrote at...

    Huckabee Show on FNC | Huckabee
    On FNC, Gov Huckabee just revealed the cost to you and me to bring Broadband internet service to rural areas through Obama's Stimulus package. It was $349,000 per home, and you and I paid it! In Montana, it was worse. The program made Broadband available to a total of 7 homes that did not have it available before, at a cost to you and me of $49,000,000. That's $7,000,000 per home. The total cost was $7.2 BILLION... and we... and our kids... and their kids, paid the bill! And does anyone doubt that Obama is trying to destroy America?

    "People were just getting together on their own," remembers Tom. "I guess you could call it grass roots." Like thousands of others, Tom downloaded phone lists so he could cold-call potential supporters in the area. Mary spent hours typing names and addresses into Obama's national database. The first paid operatives finally arrived in the area weeks later, only to find a virtually organized Obama machine already up and running. When the campaign held its first statewide training sessions in March, some 2,000 people turned up.It has gone on like this all year for Obama as his campaign deftly exploits the...

    January 03, 2008 (Computerworld) Three days ago, Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) campaign launched a new application on the Facebook social network that directs supporters to a page listing members with a connection to Iowa. The application directs Facebook users to urge those friends to the caucus tonight in Iowa, noting that "If they don't come out and support Barack, there's no guarantee he'll be the Democratic nominee." With tonight's Iowa caucus officially kicking off the election year, Obama and other candidates who have been using new Web 2.0 tools to raise money and galvanize support are kicking their efforts into...

    STORY CITY, Ia. - Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney showed his unfamiliarity with the internet during his anti-porn speech at a campaign-sponsored "ice cream social" held July 27. "YouTube is a website that allows kids to network with one another and make friends and contact each other," said Romney, who is making campaign stops throughout Iowa this week. "YouTube looked to see if they had any convicted sex offenders on their web site. They had 29,000." Romney, of course, meant the popular social website, MySpace, and not YouTube, a site that allows Internet users to upload and watch a variety...
