At Least Calderon Was Sticking Up for His Country

What, on the other hand, was Barack Obama doing? Some would say, selling us out as usual. Maybe that's a little too harsh, I'm not sure. Anyway, here is Michael Ramirez's take on Obama's love-fest with Mexico's President; click to enlarge:

Glenn Beck: Kid tells Michelle Obama 'my mom has no papers'

Many are wondering if this debacle of a scene with the first lady the other day was a setup. She was talking to some young school children when a child starts saying that her mom tells her Barack Obama is sending everyone without papers back to their own country. She then proceeds to explain that her mom does not have her papers. Oops. Glenn has the story today on radio.

Pakistan Blocks 'Blasphemous' Facebook, YouTube

Pakistan Blocks 'Blasphemous' Facebook, YouTube

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) ordered the blocking of YouTube on Thursday and Facebook on Wednesday because of "blasphemous" material. According to The Wall Street Journal, the ban has been lifted on YouTube after some videos were removed. It's not clear which content was to blame, but the Facebook ban is still in effect.


In 2007, YouTube was similarly blocked in some Islamic countries because of videos that offended some Muslims.



'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day'


The Facebook ban resulted from an order by the Lahore High Court, which followed a petition to the court by a lawyer representing Pakistan's largest religious party.


On Wednesday, PTA told Internet service providers in that country to block the popular Facebook site because of an online contest called Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. A representative of Nayatel, a Pakistani ISP, told news media that Facebook and YouTube accounted for about 25 percent of all Net traffic in Pakistan.


According to a Pakistani Foreign Office spokesperson, caricatures of Muhammad were published on Facebook, and he called it an "extremely sensitive and emotional matter for Muslims." He added that these "malicious and insulting attacks hurt the sentiments of Muslims around the world and cannot be accepted under the garb of freedom of expression."


Facebook has said the content doesn't violate its guidelines, but it's considering making the offensive content inaccessible in Pakistan. The creators of the competition page, which has more than 90,000 followers, said their intent isn't to be disrespectful, but to challenge extremists.


Ironically, by cutting off all access to Facebook, the PTA also stopped access to opposition to the drawings, also on Facebook. The opposition has more than 100,000 followers.

A PTA spokesperson told news media that the agency tried to block specific URLs and was successful with about 450 of them, but the content kept showing up. An...

Woman Sues Mobile Phone Provider, Because Consolidated Bill 'Revealed' Her Affair

Woman Sues Mobile Phone Provider, Because Consolidated Bill 'Revealed' Her Affair

Ah, modern technology. Michael Geist points us to the story of a woman in Canada who is suing her mobile phone provider, Rogers, for supposedly "revealing" the fact that she was having an affair. Basically, she had a mobile phone account with Rogers under her maiden name, which she used to have long chats with someone she was having an affair with. Her husband had set up the family's cable TV service, also from Rogers. At one point, he called Rogers to add internet and home phone service to the account, and Rogers then mailed a "global" bill that included all accounts. In looking over the bill, the husband noticed the long phone calls all to one number, and called it, and got the guy to admit to the affair. Following that, he left the wife.

Now the woman, whose husband walked out, is suing the communications giant for $600,000 for alleged invasion of privacy and breach of contract, the results of which she says have ruined her life.

I don't know, but I'd have to say that, perhaps, having the affair was the key problem here, rather than the bill. Hell, the husband could have just as easily opened the original mobile phone bill which was sent to the same house. It doesn't say so, but it seems likely that when the guy called to add services, Rogers asked if he wanted the bills consolidated and the guy just said yes.



Furthermore, the whole thing gets more bizarre later, when the story also claims that the "jilted third-party" later got access to the woman's voicemail and "harassed" her and "taunted" her (ex-)husband. And, on top of that, the article later notes "the wrongdoing that occurred in 2007 reoccurred" because the phone was still being billed to her husband's account in 2009. This part is left vague, but, it makes you wonder why two years after her husband had left her, she hadn't set up separate phone service for herself.



I'm sure it sucks to have all that happen, but it seems like a pretty big stretch to blame your mobile phone provider for the affair you had that caused your spouse to leave you...
