WASHINGTON – The U.S. Army has ordered its personnel not to 
go to the latest postings on the website of the British 
newspaper The Guardian to read revelations of information 
given to its reporter because it contains a “TOP SECRET 
slide show.”

The slide show is about how the NSA spies on US soldiers 
and other tax payers.
The Guardian’s story is mainly about the NSA's new toy, the
XKeyscore, which is an NSA data mining software tool that 
gives the analyst accesses to “everything a user does on 
the Internet.”

I find it rather sad, that the military forbids the soldiers
to read what is public knowledge in other countries, and what
really concerns them!
That puts Snowden and Manning into a totally different light.

Have FUN!

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. --- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
A spiritualist who'd recently been widowed met a colleague and reported excitedly that she'd just received a message from her dead husband - asking her to send him a pack of cigarettes. "The only thing is," she mused, "that I don't know where to send them." "Why not?" asked her friend. "Well, he didn't actually say that he was in Heaven - but I can't imagine he'd be in Hell." "Hm," responded the friend. "Well, maybe I shouldn't bring this up, but...he didn't mention anything about including matches in the package, did he?"

Jack had gone to propose to his girlfriend and returned home crying bitterly. "What happened, son?" his father asked, eagerly awaiting her response. "Did she accept?" "No, she sure didn't," sobbed Jack. "When I told her what you advised me to say, she slapped my face and told me to get out." "Did you begin by telling her what I told you to say, what I told your mother when she accepted my proposal? 'Sweetheart, time stands still when I look in your eyes.' Did you tell her that?" asked his father. "Oh boy, dad, did I get it all wrong," Jack groaned. "I said, 'My Dear, you have a face that would stop a clock'!"

By the way, his head gear is not something religious. It is a fresh bandage. Tech Support Pits From: Sidney Re: How to get rid of Hotspot Shield Dear Webby, My daughter got our computer infected with some crap called Hotspot Shield. It is the most obnoxious and useless crap I have EVER seen. It messes up the email connection, blocks perfectly good web sites, blocks SSH connections to my own domains, etc. If you can't find a way to get rid of it by nightfall, that computer will get a metal stake pounded through it, a few gallons of tar and diesel poured on it and set on fire, to exorcise it! Sidney Dear Sidney Relax. No need to set it on fire. Click on START Control Panel Programs and Features (What used to be ADD/REMOVE Programs) In there, look for Hotspot Right-click it and select UNinstall That will take a while. Afterward run CrapCleaner to complete the cleanup. By the way, I have seen Hotspot Shield on a computer, and I can fully understand and appreciate your feelings. Hotspot Shield is one of the worst programs ever written. I would classify it as Malware. Those idiots simply don't understand the net and how we use it. For example, hijacking your email and running it through their server might be expected, if you are in the US Military and they want to check all your email, but like most businesses I have safeguards in place, that lock up, when they detect what we call a "Man In The Middle Attack". The same goes with command line access to servers and FTP. What Hotspot Shield does is treated like any attack. I can recognize that kind of attack, but most people are simply tempted to use a metal stake and tar and diesel. So, if any of you ever see "Hotspot Shield" mentioned, the answer is NO!!!! Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Nearly Free Wall Art A bare wall is a blank canvas waiting to be decorated. However, art can be expensive. I have found that I can decorate my walls at little or no cost simply by using photos from books or magazines. Cheap picture frames can be found at Dollar Stores, yard sales, and thrift stores. I cut out and mount pictures from magazines I subscribe to or find free at various locations. A local library has over-sized books available at their book sale for $1. The book covers are well worn or damaged but the pages inside are usually in good condition. Nature and gardening books often have beautiful pictures in them that look fantastic when framed. I can very inexpensively create a wall of pictures that relate to things I'm passionate about, such as nature scenes, animals and flowers. I like to frequently alter my decor but my budget doesn't allow me to purchase new room accessories very often. Just placing new "free" pictures on the wall will alter the atmosphere and appearance of a room. Temporarily removing standard pictures and replacing them with holiday pictures is an inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas. By VeronicaHB from Asheboro, NC To create the feeling of more space, get an old window or door, that has dividers and small panes. Take some nice scenery picture from the Humor Letter and divide it the same way the window or door is divided. Print and trim the "panes" and stick them onto the door or window. Naturally, if the room is a day use room, choose a daylight picture. Your first "printed window" might be a learning experience, but you will quickly get the hang of it. If you attach the printed panes with double-sided removable tape (similar to Post-It Notes), or a glue stick with the same removable glue, then you can quickly change the view, depending on whether you expect your in-laws or your secret lover.

A teacher asked one of the boys in her class, "Can people predict the future with cards?" His response was, "My mother can." The teacher replied, "Really?" The young boy was quick to explain, "Yes, she takes one look at my report card and tells me what will happen when my father gets home."

From Goldie: The preacher came over the other day. He said that, at my age, I should be thinking of the hereafter. I told him that I do it all the time. No matter where I am, in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement, I ask myself, "Now, what am I here after?"
