The Bimbo from Alaska: Sarah Palin
Xah Lee, 2010-04-13
CBS Exclusive: Sarah Palin interviewed by Katie Couric, 2008-10-31.
Today, i watched a bunch of videos on Sarah Palin. What a dumb bimbo. One of the interview is by Katie Couric. What a hottie! She's so sharp. If she'd be the vice president, that'd be 10 times better.
Sarah Palin bimbo resigns.
Sarah Palin Resigns. Speech. Confused, rambling babble.
What a fucking bimbo. Offend my eyes. Go home.
One has to wonder, what kinda idiots are Alaskans, that would elect such a bimbo as governor? Similarly, which idiots American, that allowed George motherfucker Bush to became president? The citizens must share some of these responsibilities.
Email Hacking Incident
In 2008-09, Sarah Palin's email account is hacked. It was hacked by David Kernell, son of Democratic Tennessee State Representative Mike Kernell. The trial is still on-going. Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia:
The FBI and Secret Service began investigating the incident and on September 20, it was revealed that they were questioning David Kernell, a 20-year-old economics student at the University of Tennessee and the son of Democratic Tennessee State Representative Mike Kernell from Memphis. The handle used by the hacker when making his post at 4chan pointed to him, although this evidence was inconclusive because of the frequent pranks pulled at that board. The hacker's proxy service provided its logs, which pointed to Kernell's residence.
FBI agents served a federal search warrant at the Knoxville Tennessee residence of David Kernell. Kernell, according to witnesses, fled the scene when the FBI agents arrived. Agents spent 1.5 to 2 hours taking pictures of everything inside his apartment. Kernell's three roommates were also subpoenaed and expected to testify the following week in Chattanooga. Kernell Sr. told Wired that he was aware that his son was a suspect, but he did not ask him anything about it over concerns that he may have to testify in court.
A federal grand jury in Chattanooga, Tennessee considered Kernell's case in September but did not deliver an indictment. Kernell retained Knoxville, Tennessee attorney Wade V. Davies.
A second federal grand jury in Knoxville returned an indictment of Kernell on October 7, 2008. He was charged with violating 18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(2)(C) and § 2701, or unlawful access to stored communications and intentionally accessing a computer without authorization across state lines, respectively. Kernell turned himself in the next day. Kernell pled not-guilty. The court released Kernell without bail. A trial date was set for April 2010 but has since been delayed at the request of both attorneys. Kernell's attorney claimed that using "an e-mail address and a birth date does not constitute identity theft"; however, the court rejected that argument saying "once Governor Palin chose the Yahoo! ID firstname.lastname@example.org, that became her unique address, and no one else could choose it." The trial date after the delay is expected in April 2010.
This hacking is breaking the law. Law, as a rule of conduct drafted and agreed to by all of us human animals of the locality; we should behave within this agreement. However, in modern times since perhaps 2 hundred years ago, things got much more complex than that. Most of us have little understanding of the law, and it is fret with idiocy and manipulated by politicians. Also, law, changes over time, and in some cases, breaking the law is a effective way to improve society, and the course of history is filled with law-breaking. (USA, for example, was born, by breaking the law. You can count basically all revolutions and births of nations. Another example of law-breaking most American idiots love to chant is Martin Luther King.)
So, i don't endorse this particular hacking, but nor do i particularly find it a big deal.
Human animal law is funny. Yeah, history are much about breaking the law. But, when you are not powerful enough, or the situation is not in your favor, talking about this very fact puts you in question. After all, law is not physics, not how the universe works. While some powerful assholes in history, makes law, and breaks at will, such as George W Bush. One quote that describes the situation that sophomorons love to quote is:
Written laws are like spider's webs; they will catch, it is true, the weak and the poor, but would be torn in pieces by the rich and powerful. — Anacharsis (b 6 BCE)
I think a closer translation is probably the following, from wikiquote.org:
These decrees of yours are no different from spiders' webs. They'll restrain anyone weak and insignificant who gets caught in them, but they'll be torn to shreds by people with power and wealth.
In USA, one of the most free country in the world, it is ok criticise public figures, or discuss the ethics of law, today. However, in many countries in Middle East, criticizing the country's leaders, or religious leaders, you go to jail.
