We need a guy like this

This country needs a person like this [Czech President Vaclav Klaus] at the helm of the United States. And not some leftist academics who have never run anything besides theories – and debunked ones at that.

I have been following his career for a while.
He grew up under communist rule – he KNOWS it and knows it does NOT work.

He has been and outspoken critic of the bogus idea of anthropogenic ‘global warming’. I use that term because it has now been soundly refuted and exposed as a the fraud it is by real science – the science that was silenced in the name of political and economic expediency of the left. And he is a champion of freedom and capitalism.

He has continually spoken out against ‘cap and trade’. This speech is a must read. It should be, in fact, read by all young students who are still being hammered with bogus leftist ideologies daily in our grade and middles schools!

Excerpt: "We should not deceive ourselves. Cap-and-trade scheme is a government intervention par excellence, not a “market solution.”

Here he is being interviewed by Glen Beck.

CheckPoint/Zone Alarm Lose with fake threat

I’ve written about this tactic before – using ‘rogue/fake’ threat or infection warnings to distribute REAL malware. This is one very effective way to get unsuspecting or untrained people to accidentally actually ‘infect’ themselves.

It now appears that a legitimate (using that word lightly now) company – CheckPoint, makers of ZoneAlarm is using the same tactic to ‘up sell’ their products to unsuspecting consumers. I hope others do not follow.

Please take the time to read this very short article.

At one time I used and recommended their products and most were quite good. In fact ZoneAlarm was one of the first ‘software firewalls’ I every used consistantly – over a decade ago.
However………

With this move CheckPoint has assured itself that it will be uninstalled and/or blocked on ALL of the machines (hundreds) I manage or have any influence upon.
I am passing this information to EVERYONE in my sphere of influence and I hope they do the same. Maybe even demand a refund pro-rata on any products they have installed.

Real D*%k move CheckPoint. See you later.
