Okay, this is a little nerdy, but I share because I care.

Apparently, Google's got an exploit that can fool even the most advanced users. For example, those of you with a Gmail account, check this out: http://www.google.com/u/gplus

Scary, huh? See the article at the link above for a full breakdown. Be very cautious and very judicious with your usernames and passwords. If the site's not secure, be very wary.

Hugo Chavez: Theory that U.S. orchestrated Sept. 11 attacks 'not absurd'

As much as it galls me, I think we owe a debt of gratitude to the neo-Marxist pseudo-dictator Hugo Chavez, the so-called "president" of Venezuela for helping nail the lid on the coffin of one of the most ridiculous and nauseating conspiracy theories ever espoused by the far left- and right-wing nutcases. How's that, you say? Because he has suggested that he supports the theory.

Now, you and I know that the main reason he supports this theory is because of his blind hatred of President George Bush. However, in the fog of this blind rage, here's what's happened: one of the most vitriolic, feared, and hated dictators of the 21st century supports this conspiracy theory. This holds the same credence as having Fidel Castro himself make the same statement. In fact, that's pretty much what Chavez is: a mouthpiece for the Marxist leader of Cuba.

If you are one of those deranged individuals that actually believes that any of the last 3 or 4 Presidents of the United States would perpetrate a public attack on their own innocent civilians in an attempt to gain political or financial gain, then all I can do is pity you. Granted, they have ALL made mistakes (some more than others, mind you) that allowed the enemies of our Republic to perpetrate terrorist attacks on us, but remember this: we are at war with Islamic fundamentalists (whatever THAT means), and they want to kill us - men, women, children - combatants and non-combatants, and will do anything to perpetrate their mayhem and violence against a society that they simply cannot comprehend in their barbarian brains. While I hold no great love for the incursions of a Federal government on private lives, neither do I believe (nor has anyone convinced me) that they 1) would kill thousands in a staged "terrorist" attack, nor 2) do I believe our Federal government is organized enough to pull it off, keep the truth hidden from ALL sources, and sell it as a terrorist attack! Hell, Bill Clinton couldn't keep a simple BJ secret.

If you buy any of that nonsense, then by all means pay heed to Hugo Chavez. You deserve what you get.
