Can You Really Sign Binding Legal Documents with Your Handle? Yes – Meet “John The Animal Protector Mounier”

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Here he is:

I’ve never seen anything like that in a signature line.

In other news, Charlie lives – he just got a life sentence on a farm someplace after his mouthpiece struck a plea bargain with Dennis Herrera and the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office.

But, come to think of it, attorney John Mounier is actually “The Animal Attacker Protector,” IRL.

Oh well.

Shanghai Metro, the MUNI of the Largest City in the World, Tells Women to Dress Primly – Protest Ensues

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

First of all, MUNI* sucks, let’s just get that out of the way.

Second of all, look what happened when Shanghai Metro over there in the People’s Republic of China used its Tumblrish/Twtterish microblogging website to lecture women about how to dress, you know, to decrease the chances of getting groped and whatnot.

See? It’s all:

“乘坐地铁,穿成这样,不被骚扰,才怪。地铁狼较多,打不胜打,人狼大战,姑娘,请自重啊!”

Now it’s been a while since my days at Hereford, but I think that means:

“Subway, dressed like that, and not be harassed, strange. More subway wolf, playing numerous fight the war of crying wolf, girl, please behave!”

Get it? If you dress like a ho, you’ll get treated like one, by the subway wolves.

And here’s the photo that Shanghai’s subway agency grabbed to make its point:

But now there’s a quiet protest going on.

Like right here.

Like people are wearing burkas to say, “What do you want to do, impose Sharia Law?”

What a burn.

I’ll tell you, one thing the Red Chinese hate, just hate, is underground protest movements. They can’t abide.

Like remember this one from a few years ago? It seems that a group of people wanted to Stop the Killing in Tibet so they had this gal suspend herself from the Chinese Consulate right there at Geary and Laguna.

Thusly:

Man, the people inside the consulate went berserk over this one. They ended up going to the roof to cut her down. (Lucky for her she was just 15 feet above a balcony – if she had fallen to the sidewalk below, it could have been fatal.) And then they blocked the SFFD from taking her to SF General to get her leg injuries treated. (You know, back then, the PRC was kind of a pariah nation.)

Anywho, my point is that the Chinese Communist Party can’t abide** protest, even little ones about proper dress codes, so it will be interesting to see what happens when Democracy finally finds its way to China. Perhaps the CCP would end up the winner in a fair election. Who knows.

But little things, like “underground” performance art protests, have a tendency to turn into bigger things.

Sometimes.

We’ll see.

*I mean I don’t think you should ever broach the topic of the SFMTAMUNIDPT without saying up front that MUNI sucks, that MUNI has lots and lots of room for improvement. This kind of constructive criticism displays the fact that you don’t think that MUNI is the Best Darn Agency in the World or something like that. So you could say, “Of course MUNI sucks, but I think that we should keep on building that horrible Central Subway.” That would be interesting, huh? That would show at least that you acknowledge reality and also that you feel that paying the Feds back their $200,000,000 or so would be a burden on the City and County. And then somebody else might counter with, “Yeah, we should make a deal with the Feds not to spend good money after bad  - maybe  let’s just forget the whole thing and let’s not require repayment of the money back to the US Treasury. That would be a win-win for San Francisco and all the taxpayers of America.” Or something like that.  Now you’re on the trolley!

**Hey, now let’s hear from Mayor Ed Lee “advisor” / Chinese Consulate “advisor” Chinatown “Power Broker” Rose Pak, you know, from back in the day, after she descended from her taxpayer-financed, below-market condo penthouse in District Six:

“When asked what message she would like to convey to the Chinese government, Pak said, ‘On what moral ground do we have as United States citizens lecturing what China should do when our own President would drum up falsehoods and bomb Iraq back to the stone-age, killing several hundred thousand innocent Iraqis. Look at all the problems in the world, (they) are all created by Western countries with their phony-baloney moral standards,’ Pak added.”

MyBART.org Website Hacked by Anonymous – Passenger Data, Email Adresses and Passwords Posted to Web

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Via Bluoz comes that news that MyBART.org, a site run by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), has just been hacked by Anonymous, a group of people opposed to BARTs cell phone shutdown policy.

See?

BART saw this coming, in a way:

“Update on potential interruption to BART’s website and other online services

BART’s online services including web, mobile webemail and SMS are used by nearly 2 million customers every month. We’re disappointed to announce that the BART website may be subject to an online attack today, Sunday August 14, between noon and 6 pm, because this action will directly affect those customers who depend upon our site, as well as the developers who use BART’s open data services to serve BART customers.

We’re doing what we can to defend against any attack on the BART website. BART’s website infrastructure is wholly separate from any computer network involved in the operation of BART service. In the event that bart.gov is not available or working as you’d expect, we encourage you to use the 511.org website for alternative transit information.

Updated 8:48 am Sunday, August 14, 2011″

And guess what, BART, you’ll have more things to deal with until Monday evening:

#OpBART has started… For the next 35 hours @SFBART well feel the wrath of #Anonymous

All the deets are right here:

“Sooner or later the people in this country gotta realize the government
does not give a fuck about them. The government doesn’t care about you, or your children,
or your rights, or your welfare, or your safety, it simply doesn’t give a fuck about you.
It’s interested in its own power, that’s the only thing, keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.”

Dear Bay Area Rapid Transit, The People and All Government Agencies,

We are Anonymous, we are your citizens, we are the people, WE DO NOT TOLERATE OPPRESSION FROM ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY.
BART has proved multiple times that they have no problem exploiting and abusing the people.
First they displayed this by the two recent killings by BART police. Under no circumstance, unless police are shot at,
make police killings acceptable. Non-lethal weapons were available to use during both incidents,
providing even that was necessary, but instead they shot to kill. Next they violated the people’s right to assembly and prevented
other bystanders from using emergency services by blocking cell phone signals in order to stop a protest against the BART police murders.
Lastly, they set up this website called mybart.gov and they stored their members information with virtually no security.
The data was stored and easily obtainable via basic sqli. Any 8 year old with a internet connection
could have done what we did to find it. On top of that none of the info, including the passwords,
was encrypted. It is obvious BART does no give a fuck about its customers, funders and tax payers,THE PEOPLE.

The governments and government agencies of the world are becoming tyrannical and oppressive,
and the people are responding and will not take your shit for much longer. The people will fight
this oppression with protests, demonstrations, riots, hacking, ddos, online attacks and by any other means.
We will not allow ourselves to be killed, exploited, or get shitted on. From the streets of Chile,
England, Portland, San Francisco, Oakland, the people are rising up and we will support each other and
stand in solidarity against any injustice. Worldwide resistance is happening,
we will participate in solidarity against oppression. SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON.

Thus below we are releasing the User Info Database of MyBart.gov, to show that BART doesn’t give a shit about
it’s customers and riders and to show that the people will not allow you to kill us and censor us. This is
but the one of many actions to come. We apologize to any citizen that has his information published, but
you should go to BART and ask them why your information wasn’t secure with them. Also do not worry,
probably the only information that will be abused from this database is that of BART employees.

Greetz to TeaMp0ison, lulzsec, anti-sec, anarchists, anon, bay of rage, No Justice, No BART, UA in the bay,
your anon news, anonymous irc.”

Has the Inner Sunset Area Really Been Overrun By Crazies? Alleged Assaults from a “Crazy, Tattooed Homeless Woman”

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

The following graf is all I know about this Inner Sunset situation:

“The woman who assaulted me was that crazy, tattooed homeless woman. She is clearly spiralling out of control. People in this neighborhood (the 7th avenue church) enable her and allow her to sleep on our streets. This has got to stop! Our neighborhood used to be safe! now it’s just overrun by crazies. PLEASE help me get …her off the streets. I deserve to walk down the street (with my child) in my own neighborhood and not get attacked!”

Tenderloin Tableau: Pedestrian vs. a Yuppie’s Poor Volvo

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

This yuppie got delayed up a bit during his evening drive through the “Theatre District” and the Flank on his way back to San Mateo County the other day. He looked a little peeved due to the  pedestrian on the left smashing her fist onto the hood of his Volvo. It was quite the scene.
