'What's the buzz? Tell me what's-a happening!'
1. Bush told a German newspaper over the weekend that his 'best moment' as president was when he caught himself a 7.5 pound perch. That's right, six years as leader of the free world and the best thing he's done is catch a fish. Boy, if only Osama were a trout. (Daou has the latest, and Shakes has more on W's outlandish interview here and here.)
2. Billmon: Turing the CIA into New Orleans (or "The Successful Reign of Porter Goss"). Also, Bush's appointment of Michael "I'll spy on your grandma" Hayden to replace Goss spells victory for one Donald Rumsfeld, you know the crazy guy everyone wants fired? Superb.
3. Conyers: After being attacked by Tim Russert, Rep. Conyers defends the notion that he may actually introduce executive office oversight if the Dems were to gain control of Congress. (*gasp!* "Oversight?! Deary me, what sort of radical talk is this??") And why is the idea of investigating how we were (mis)led to war so scary to the establishment media anyway? FDL says 'it's the complicity stupid'.
4. TDS (via OGM): Jon Stewart spotlights The Bushie's oily flip-flops. (and check out Bulldog's simple yet effective POS impeachment idea.)
5. I have to say, I love coming up #1 on this Google search.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Best Day Ever: Fishing with Dad in N'awlins.

ON THIS DAY: In 1970 a mob of more than 200 construction workers attacked a noon-time peace rally at the corner of Wall & Broad Streets in New York's financial district, beating the anti-war protestors with hard hats, tools and fists, injuring more than 70 of them. After the Wall St. beatdown, the mob stormed nearby City Hall demanding the American flag, flying at half-mast on the heels of the tragedy at Kent St., be raised up high less they sack the place. And what did these brutes receive in return for their boorish actions? Jail time? Fines? Loss of their jobs? Nope, none of the above. The hard hats received a letter from vice president Spiro Agnew commending them for their "impressive display in patriotism--and a spirit of pride in country that seems to have become unfashionable in recent years." I work at Wall & Broad. I think I'll be wary of the construction workers when I go out for lunch today.

Also, today is VE Day, a perfect time to inform the world that we're in the middle of World War III. Did we forget to mention that before? Oops, sorry.

==Narus ST-6400 and NarusInsight by Narus Ltd.==
Under Gen. Michael V. Hayden the NSA has forced tecom companies to implement massive domestic spying hardware. Even though Gen. Hayden has said at the National Press Club that "As the director, I was the one responsible to ensure that this program was limited in its scope and disciplined in its application." The NarusInsight is one type of domestic spaying hardware. Capable of monitoring 10 billion bits of data per second in real-time. This means the NarusInsight can monitor an OC-192 in realtime. For reference 10 billion bits is 10 million Kbts, divide that by the average DSL user witch is 256 Kbts (10000000/256) you get monitoring of 39062.5 DSL lines in realtime for every piece of hardware. After data capture Narus softeware can replay data. What does this mean well acrodding too Narus website "Capabilities include playback of streaming media (for example, VoIP), rendering of Web pages, examination of e-mails and the ability to analyze the payload/attachments of e-mail or file transfer protocols." Think of it as Tivo for the internet able to replay 39000 US DSL users activity in realtime for every piece of hardware.
