Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, has branded himself technologically illiterate, but says he goes online with his staff’s assistance and reads sites like Drudge Report and Politico.
Well, at least he didn’t call it “the internets” and “the Google” like “the president” did. For the record, it’s called “the internet” and just plain old “Google.”
John McCain ‘technology illiterate’ doesn’t email or use internet
Senator John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate, has admitted that he never uses email and that his staff has to show him websites because he is only just “learning to get online myself”.
“Brooke and Mark show me Drudge, obviously, everybody watches, for better or for worse, Drudge,” he said, referring to his aides Brooke Buchanan and Mark Salter, who direct him to the Drudge Report website.
He added: “Sometimes I look at Politico. Sometimes RealPolitics, sometimes,” an apparent reference to the website RealClearPolitics.com.
Three Film Companies Closed Down – AOL Fleecing The Public
Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner, has closed its Picturehouse, Warner Independent and New Line film companies, in the face of declining revenues.
Warner Bros. has taken quite a few hits in the last 6 months with the majority of their releases tanking, losing huge amounts of money.
“The Golden Compass” which cost $285 million to make and market, flopped, as did the $185 million dollar film “Speed Racer” which has severely underperformed at the box office and been branded a international bomb.
Time Warner’s AOL is also faltering. Many have fled the expensive internet provider in search of cheaper deals. The poor service does not justify the high costs.
Not to mention, AOL is the king of fraudulent billing. Numerous people are charged for their service for months, sometimes years, after they leave AOL. They refuse to let people leave and continue to charge them.
I know a disabled man whose bank account had to be changed to stop AOL from billing him after he discontinued the service. However, shortly after, they found his new bank account number and started charging it again though he had cancelled his subscription. They have continued to bill him for almost a year and he has not been using their service at all.
That happened to me as well. They just kept on billing me even after I left their ISP until my bank shook them off.
I have a friend that works at a major credit card company and she said so much of her time is regularly spent reversing charges on cards of former AOL customers, that are still being billed even though they cancelled their service and left the company for other ISPs like People PC, Net Zero and Comcast.
Many bank employees across the country have been faced with challenges as well at the hands of AOL’s ruthless, relentless billing department.
Even when you change your debit card or bank account number, they have a unit doing name and account searches to find your new banking information.
If you do a search online, you’ll find many disgruntled AOL customers complaining of being billed well after they cancelled their ISP subscription with the company.
They need to be brought up on fraud charges for this pervasive misconduct that is targeting scores of innocent consumers. Just because your company is losing a lot of money, doesn’t give you the right to do this to the public.

A 17-year-old, Alex Phillips, has been arrested for posting nude photos of his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend online, out of revenge for her dumping him. He refused to take the pics off MySpace and the police arrested him on child pornography charges.
He should do jail time, as he has taken something from that young lady that cannot be restored, her dignity and privacy. What he did to her is going to traumatize her for life and he should pay a price for that.
He wouldn’t like it if someone did the same to him, or when he gets old, to his 16-year-old daughter.
Kids are learning this nastiness from Hollywood. Celebrity sex tapes and nude photos posted online out of revenge or for sheer financial profit without the other party’s consent, has set a terrible tone and example for kids to unadvisedly follow.
Teen Nabbed For Naked MySpace Photos
Cops: Boy posted explicit shots of ex-girlfriend as way of “venting”
MAY 21–Meet Alex Phillips. The Wisconsin teenager is facing felony child pornography charges for allegedly posting naked photos of his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend on his MySpace page.
When contacted by police about the two images, Phillips, 17, balked at removing the pictures of the girl. Warned that he could face jail for publishing images of the minor, Phillips told an investigator, “F*** that, I am keeping them up,” according to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in Lacrosse County Circuit Court.
Phillips, pictured in the below mug shot, told cops that he posted the photos last week “because he was venting.” The cell phone camera photos had been taken by the girl, who provided them to Phillips.
Along with posting the photos, Phillips added explicit captions like, “Yo, U see how big her **** is! Its from me!” While claiming that his goal was not to harm the girl, Phillips acknowledged that, “he probably should not have done this,” according to the May 20 court filing.
Along with the child porn count, Phillips was charged with defamation and sexual exploitation of a child. (3 pages)

Private investigator to the stars and Colombo family Mafioso, Anthony Pellicano, has been found guilty on 76 of 77 counts of illegal wiretapping, identity theft, racketeering, wire fraud and conspiracy. The farce of a case netted a few other arrests, but many offenders were let go.
The FBI and the prosecution let the famous criminals in the case off, due to Robert Mueller being enamored with stars. The married head of the FBI is after all in love with an actress.
Once again, Mueller has proven he is incapable of being just, impartial and moral in legal matters…while the nation and world watched.
The next time you stand up and give some “you need to stop breaking the law” speech to the nation or go into a foreign country and lecture them on law and order, before you open your corrupt mouth, do remember all the evidence against stars that you sat on in the Pellicano case and shut up. Bite your tongue and keep silent with the knowledge that you are the worst hypocrite in the room and people know it.
People pointed the finger at different stars and lawyers in the Pellicano case, as having illegally wiretapped them and thrown the contents of their personal phone calls back in their faces, word for word as they previously stated it.
Stars are still engaging in criminal misconduct in Hollywood using other private investigators. A few months ago, it was widely reported, Britney Spears, paid a private investigator to wiretap her ex-husband, Kevin Federline and mother, Lynne, during her recent child custody battle and threw it in their faces.
In my legal case, Madonna continues to illegally pay for the wiretapping of our lines and hacking of my computers, that has been witnessed by computer specialists and family members. Through a trace, it was discovered the hacking is being done by a hacker that is a computer worker with clear ties to her. The full details of that will be posted to the site shortly.
The problem is, I’ve paid people to improve the security of my computers, but the hacker she has hired consistently breaks through the firewalls due to the wiretapped phone line running into the modem. He is constantly sending me harassing emails as well, from the same IP in question constantly breaking into the computers.
A specialist also checked the phone line and said the symptoms are indicative of wiretapping. It also becomes apparent that people are eavesdropping on your calls when things you’ve said privately in confidence to your father, mother, friends, members of government and your attorney, days later end up in press releases and interviews, verbatim as you said it over the phone previously, but attributed to the crazy pop star paying for the invasion of privacy campaign. Many of us witnessed it and are taken aback.
That whole Kabbalah cult that is represented by Bert Fields believes in invasion of privacy. The other cult he legally represents, Scientology, had members indicted and imprisoned over illegal wiretapping as well. It is a sick way of life in Hollywood.
But there’s an old saying in the Bible that goes, “God is not mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” God will have the last word.
“Tires get slashed; computers get hacked; houses get broken into,” Mr. Saunders said. “And of course, people’s phones get wiretapped” — their “most intimate conversations” carried in real time directly to the “waiting ears of Mr. Pellicano and his well-paying clients.”
Pellicano Guilty in Wiretapping Case
The Hollywood private investigator, Anthony Pellicano was found guilty Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles of using wiretaps and other illegal tactics to gather information for rich and famous clients involved in divorces or legal disputes.
Mr. Pellicano, 64, was convicted of 76 of the 77 charges he faced.
After about two weeks of deliberations, the jury found Mr. Pellicano guilty of racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud, identity theft, conspiracy to intercept or use wire communications and manufacture or possession of wiretapping device. He was acquitted of a single count of unauthorized computer access.

Degenerate Neighboring Parents Harass Daughter’s Teen Friend On The Internet
Pretty Megan Meier
Beautiful little Megan Meir was driven to suicide via a sick online campaign fabricated by her friend’s 47-year-old mother, Lori Drew, to taunt and harass her, after both girls had a falling out. It is believed Drew’s husband participated in the harassment as well.
The mother created an account on MySpace, for a made up 16-year-old boy that she dubbed Josh Evans. First she contacted Megan, befriending her on Myspace as the fictitious Josh Evans, then tried to psychologically decimate her by telling her horrible rumors were going around about her being a bad person.
Her final message to Megan as Josh Evans was “Have a shi**y life. The world would be a better place without you.”
I want you to picture that. A 47 year old woman pretending to be a 16 year old boy said that online to a 13 year old girl that was suffering from teenage insecurity and depression.
Megan then hung herself in her closet. Her parents awoke to find her lifeless body.
Megan‘s mother Tina Meier
There is something very sick and devious about what Lori Drew did. She removed all social bounds of acceptable human conduct and civility, to taunt a young girl, 34 years her junior. That doesn’t look right.
No normal parent would be online participating in such a thing and she needs to have her kids taken away for their safety.
At any point did she not see anything sick in what she was doing, and say to herself, maybe I shouldn’t be doing this. Drew is psychopathic and has proven she is a danger to the public. She needs to be locked away.
To go to the lengths she did in creating a fake profile to taunt a young girl, betrays a very sick mind and an undeniable evil streak. She tried to push a 13 year old over the edge and succeeded. She should go to jail for that for a very long time.
Mr. and Mrs. Meier holding a photo of Megan, who was a pretty girl, but like many teenagers, go through their awkward phase of being insecure about their looks and life. To any teens reading this, don’t take that phase of your life to heart, as it is only for a short time and things will get better. If you are feeling depressed, tell your parents. If someone is harassing you, tell them that as well.
Oddly, no charges have been filed, when there are cyber stalking and harassment laws on the books that strictly forbid what Drew did. Even a negligent homicide charge would be workable in this predicament.
Lori Drew should not go unpunished by the justice system, as she cost a child her life. Regardless, she will reap what she sowed. She needs to ask God for forgiveness for what she’s done.
She clearly has too much time on her hands, and thus, she needs to be sued in civil court and forced to serve jail time via criminal court order, where she is made to spend a portion of her days doing things like clean up roads, to keep her occupied. Idle hands really are the devil’s workshop.
My condolences to the Meiers.
“…filed a police report with the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department on Nov. 25, 2006, saying she initiated the creation of the fake MySpace account and then monitored it with her daughter, then 13, and an 18-year-old part-time employee. Megan Meier had gone on vacations with the family, and they knew Megan suffered from depression, according to Tina Meier.
Ron Meier said he believes that the final electronic message his daughter saw on her MySpace account – and that the FBI was unable to recover from the family’s computer – included, “the world would be a better place without you.” The Josh Evans MySpace account was deleted immediately after Megan’s death.” http://ofallonjournal.stltoday.com
