On this day in history

by Larry Geller

JohnsonOn this day in 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, outlawing discrimination based on race, color, religion or national origin.

It’s sad to see the country backsliding as several states try to disenfranchise minorities from voting, among other new Jim Crow tactics.
Also: on this day in 1988.The US Navy warship USS Vincennes shot down a passenger airliner, IranAir Flight 655, over the Persian Gulf, killing all 290 people aboard.


Meanwhile, today's New York Times reports the Postal Service photos and logs every piece of mail sent in the USA. But, hey, nobody much cares. Burnt out and ground down to accept that the government will do anything it wants in the name of "security." What a nation we have become.

Yes, it's called "Mail Isolation Control and Tracking". They photograph and capture an image of every mail piece that is processed through the USPS.

See my June 9 article: Luddites not left out—report that US Postal Service tracks your mail too.

On the plus side, the USPS requires a court order to open a letter.

I'll bet the gov't can get a court order for less than the cost of a postage stamp from the FISA court.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
