Wikileaks Whack-a-Mole Workaround

Whooee! Well, friends an' foes, the cyber-censors have been doin' their dangedest to keep folks from seein' the Wikileaks website. The chased 'em from to to an' I dunno how many other domains. Here's one that's been workin' fairly consistently for a couplafew days now:

You see, fellers an' gals, the domain name system (DNS) is mostly a translator that takes a tuff-to-remember IP number like and calls it something like When you go directly to, you bypass the dns.

This ain't guaranteed to work forever. What is, for that matter? The IP number is attached to the host server. If wikileaks is chased off their existing server (it's happened once this week), then the IP number will change. So far, though, has worked through a few DNS changes brought about by the cyber censors and their whack-a-mole strategy to stifle free speech.

The truth is out there... and it'll set you free.

Inferiority, schminferiority!

Whooee! Well, friends an' foes, I just left me a bigass comment over to Steve V's Far and Wide. Ol' Steve's bought into the idea that Canajuns got us an inferiority complex like that Merkan feller with the leaky wick said. I ain't buyin' it. Here's my recycled comment from Far and Wide.

Inferiority, schminferiority!

If we're comparin' ourselves to the Merkans, we got nothing to feel inferior about. We're better educated. We're in better health. We don't go around shootin' each other quite as much as they do. We tolerate diversity like same sex marriage and polygamy and poutine. We know how to drive in the snow. Our money's way prettier. We've got way more square kilometers per person. We know what kilometers are.

I figger it's the Merkans who got the inferiority complex. I mean who gets all antsy about how they're portrayed in dumbass sitcoms or cop shows? Merkan TV is always pokin' fun at Canajuns an', true to their stereotype, we're too polite to complain. The real reason we don't complain is we don't wanna make 'em see how stoopid they are. It's compassion more than politeness, I reckon.

Oh yeah... our tar sands are bigger and dirtier than theirs and we got pretty darn big carbon footprints, too. They only can go coast to coast but we can go from coast to coast to coast. We're whippin' their sorryasses 3 to 2 in the coast department an' I don't see 'em catchin' up, neither.

An' another thing, my dog's got a bigger vocabulary than most Merkans. He knows sign language, too.

Standin' on guard with a glowin' heart,
