LRN.FM - The Liberty Radio Network / AntiWar Radio
« on: July 04, 2012, 10:54:09 PM »
It's over.

We are deeply disappointed to announce that Scott Horton is no longer part of the Antiwar.com staff. Antiwar Radio has consistently been the best foreign policy show on the airwaves, always featuring the biggest names in foreign policy and noninterventionistism. Scott’s unique interview style, his deep knowledge and brilliant skill for entertainment were a centerpiece of this site. The impact the show has had on people, and this site, has been profound. However, we could no longer financially afford to maintain Antiwar Radio. Antiwar.com and our donors are not immune to the shrinking war time economy. We have had to make several changes with a smaller budget the details of which we will announce in our weekly newsletter. Meanwhile, the archives of Antiwar Radio are available here. You can continue to follow Scott’s new show, the Scott Horton Show here.

Is he going to continue to do a show in the same time slot that AWR was on, or is it over for good?

I agree wholeheartedly with what Harris wrote.

I'm going to take it a step farther.  I've been listening to this show for at least 5 years.  Lately, within the last year or so, something has been nagging at me about the show.  The last few months have been especially hard to listen to.  Harris hit the nail on the head, and made me think about why I'm skipping segments or sometimes whole shows on a more frequent basis.

The quality of callers and number of callers has seemed to drop steadily.  Remember Sunfest? Scott the Bigot? Yeah, they were crazy, but they made the show fun to listen to because it gave these crazy people a place to voice their opinion and then a chance for Ian and Mark to show why their crazy views are crazy.  It almost feels like calls are being screened and more prepared content is taking over.  This is just from a listener standpoint.

The other problem is it gets tiring listening to the show 7 days a week.  It's starting to become a news commentary show rather than a call-in show from what I can tell.  It seems the more stations the show gets, the lesser the quality becomes.  With the exception of a couple of current 3rd hosts, the current crop is not up to par of what the old ones were. Again, just a listener's observation, I could be completely off my rocker on all of this.

This is not to take away from how successful the show has become.  Mark and Ian, you guys are some of the hardest working radio hosts from what I have seen.  I'm concerned there might be some burnout taking place on both listeners and the hosts. I'm tired of hearing about the CD, because it seems like you guys are banging your heads against a brick wall and getting nowhere, which could be contributing to the burnout.

I wish I could offer solutions, but frankly I have none.  The show seems to have reached its peak and I fear it might be on the downward spiral.  I'll continue to support the show, because I still think it offers at least a little bit of value to new listeners, but it does seem to be moving away from teaching people about liberty and towards how liberties are being taken away without much solution other than join the FSP.

I really wanted to go this year.  It would have been my 3rd year in a row.  The best thing I did was get a motel room there for the time I was there.  It allowed me to get away from the insanity but also allowed me to stay dry if it rained.  I really enjoyed the first time I went, and I had a freaking blast last year.  It was amazing to see how much bigger it grew in just a year. The only issue I had was the rave that went on last year.  You could hear and feel the bass up in the motel area at 2 AM.  I felt sorry for the people with families.

This year is going to be absolutely insane, and I predict probably 1500 people will attend over the week.  I just can't squeeze anymore money from the money tree.  I went to FL in March and got to see hot rods going 320mph and breathed in a lot of nitromethane fumes at the NHRA Gatornationals in Gainsville, seeing 13ft gators while on an air boat, and seeing thousands of motorcycles at Daytona Bike Week. I'm literally broke from this excursion and can't scrape up the $500 for a motel room at Roger's or the gas money to get there from Western NY.  I tried the Convoy thing the last two years, it doesn't work when you're this far north.

Definitely hope to get up there next year.  Still undecided on if I want to move to NH, so I'll probably combine it with a tour of the state.

I'd say ditch it and put it to whatever could use the money most.  Whether that be helping get LRN to more ears or whatever.  KU band doesn't seem all that popular in America because most anyone who has a dish, they have tv or internet with it.  It's just the way media tech is marketed here.  Everything is a subsidy.  It might be more popular if that wasn't the case, so at the current time I'd say it's a waste of time and money if you're not seeing appropriate incoming results vs expenditures.

The guy who bitched and moaned about being on hold?  I agree he was pretty out of line, but Ian, your response to him was vicious and IMHO uncalled for.  Keep treating your listeners like that and you'll find the ones who support you will quickly fall away.  After all, isn't that what the show is all about, the callers?

- "Global Warming Climate Change"?
It's now called Biodiversity

- Dog the Bounty Hunter?
New season just started.  http://www.dogthebountyhunter.com/

I only found out because I was curious.  Back when I used to watch TV a lot, that was one show I really liked.  The whole "God" thing bugged the shit out of me, but the way he handled the people he caught was amazing.  Regardless of the fact that drug laws are stupid, he offered these people a service, they fucked up, and he wanted his money.  The guy's got balls, I mean, for fuck's sake, he's going into  fight with mace when there could full well be ak-47's or something ready for him.  The wrestling-style acting and dress I could do without.

No clue but this week TSA (for or against) news is all over the place. Mainstream tv news, local newspapers, radio shows, facebook,

Yeah I'm kinda getting sick of it too.  I've never seen a topic this beat to death with exception to the old religion and politics crap.  I guess it's a good thing if it makes people aware, but dear god people, us crazies over here have been talking about the TSA for years now?  And just NOW you're getting the gist of what they're up to?

This is huge IMHO.  Say what you will about Drudge (CIA, FBI, etc), he's big. This is the kind of stuff that Alex Jones usually outs, and instead FTL wins this time!

I watched the video 3 or 4 hours ago and it was at 22k or so views.  Now it's at 111k views.  Insane.

I thought prisoners had no Constitutional rights?

I thought that too, but I found something that makes sense to me:
Quote from: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/data/constitution/amendment14/17.html
Until relatively recently the view prevailed that a prisoner ''has, as a consequence of his crime, not only forfeited his liberty, but all his personal rights except those which the law in its humanity accords to him. He is for the time being the slave of the state.'' 139 This view is not now the law, and may never have been wholly correct. 140 In 1948 the Court declared that ''[l]awful incarceration brings about the necessary withdrawal or limitation of many privileges and rights''; 141 ''many,'' indicated less than ''all,'' and it was clear that the due process and equal protection clauses to some extent do apply to prisoners. 142 More direct acknowledgment of constitutional protection came in 1972: ''[f]ederal courts sit not to supervise prisons but to enforce the constitutional rights of all 'persons,' which include prisoners. We are not unmindful that prison officials must be accorded latitude in the administration of prison affairs, and that prisoners necessarily are subject to appropriate rules and regulations. But persons in prison, like other individuals, have the right to petition the Government for redress of grievances. . . .'' 143 However, while the Court affirmed that federal courts have the responsibility to scrutinize prison practices alleged to violate the Constitution, at the same time concerns of federalism and of judicial restraint caused the Court to emphasize the necessity of deference to the judgments of prison officials and others with responsibility for administering such systems. 144

This is an interesting case, but IMHO relatively easy:
Quote from: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/data/constitution/amendment14/17.html
Fourth Amendment protection is incompatible with ''the concept of incarceration and the needs and objectives of penal institutions,'' hence a prisoner has no reasonable expectation of privacy in his prison cell protecting him from ''shakedown'' searches designed to root out weapons, drugs, and other contraband. 155 Avenues of redress ''for calculated harassment unrelated to prison needs'' are not totally blocked, the Court indicated; inmates may still seek protection in the Eighth Amendment or in state tort law. 156 Existence of ''a meaningful postdeprivation remedy'' for unauthorized, intentional deprivation of an inmate's property by prison personnel protects the inmate's due process rights. 157 Due process is not impli cated at all by negligent deprivation of life, liberty, or property by prison officials. 158 

While in prison, regardless of being wrongly accused and all that, there is NO expectation of privacy on behalf of the prisoner.  This should be the case in order to keep the rest of the prisoners and corrections officers safe.  The prisoner in this case has no ground to stand on.

Now, here's where the moral ground comes in, and what would happen if governments had any accountability.  All mail while incarcerated should be opened IN FRONT of the prisoner.  This is the only proper way to handle the situation.  No, the prisoner should not have the ability to open the letters, but the corrections officers shouldn't be opening mail of prisoners without them in their presence.

The Show / Accusations against Hostgator, don't panic, but be aware
« on: November 01, 2010, 07:02:52 AM »
Found this on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/dz9fg/hostgator_loses_customer_credit_card_details/

I happen to work for a rather large hosting company (read: http://www.hostgator.com) in the capacity as a System Administrator and was recently privy to the knowledge that the entire blade of billing servers were compromised and that all the credit card information stored in the recurring billing database was stolen and is now entirely in the wind; This includes full credit card numbers, expiration dates and CVV2 codes.

This company has chosen to hide this fact instead of report it to the appropriate authorities so I spoke out against them anonymously in a thread they keep stickied in SA-Mart in order to warn others that they should take the proper precautions with their financial data. Unfortunately, due to the amount of money they are paying Lowtax for advertisement, you are entirely unable to speak out against them despite whatever proof you may have; they went ahead and banned me. They even edited my posts and removed all the information I posted as a warning.

They've already provided all my IP and e-mail address information to the company and I've been fired so I couldn't care less what's going to happen from here. A friend of mine recommended I post this information here so that the few people who may read this could get the word out and let people know that it's really not safe to trust SA. The administration isn't about exchange of information or the formation of a strong community, they are about the all-mighty dollar.

So far it seems to be just accusations, but there needs to be investigations into this and what's happening there. The owner of hostgator supposedly went onto the thread linked at reddit to dispute the whole thing.  I see this as nothing but a smear campaign, but I dunno.  Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

17 months old. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw3XuUm4HSc

Yes, quite old. He says he should be in NH, however he clearly has built quite the life in Vegas.

Yeah I liked his old rant show better.  His new show sucks.  I think the reason why he's not in NH yet is his show out in Vegas.  I'm betting when him and Teller retire, he'll move.

My Uncle's good friend passed away earlier this year.  Logged over 8,000 miles a year on his bikes.  Was going a little too fast on a country road and never saw the deer running out in front of him.  My Uncle hasn't been on his bike since then, and is about to sell it.  He's driving a Corvette now.

I absolutely hate those lids on sporty water bottles.  I'd rather see something where you pull the cap downwards on both sides and it splits open easily with one hand and then springs back shut when you release it or something.
