Another possible Executive Order from the anointed one. When he said he considers going it alone, I guess he was serious…

Seems that the talks to reach a consensus for the Arms Trade Treaty have ended without agreement.
From the United Nations web site…
Describing it as a “setback,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed his disappointment over the failure by United Nations Member States to reach agreement on a treaty that would regulate the conventional arms trade.“I am disappointed that the Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) concluded its four-week-long session without agreement on a treaty text that would have set common standards to regulate the international trade in conventional arms,” Mr. Ban said.
The Arms Trade Treaty, or ATT, is the bill still in the draft phase that has many 2nd Amendment advocates in the states up in arms. It has been a point of unconfirmed rumor that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama had promised a signature. The rumor mill also states that a restriction or ban on firearms trade or ownership, as well as an international registration database would in effect nullify our 2nd Amendment rights.
Personally, I will not even pretend to know just what kind of impact this would have on this nation. But there was a landmark court case decided in 1957 that our Constitution supersedes all international treaties ratified by the Senate. This was the Reid v. Covert case.
In the text of the U.N. Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, in the section II titled Measures to prevent and combat terrorism, item #5 deals with the U.N.’s plan with regard to the small arms trade…
5. To strengthen coordination and cooperation among States in combating crimes that might be connected with terrorism, including drug trafficking in all its aspects, illicit arms trade, in particular of small arms and light weapons, including man-portable air defence systems , money laundering and smuggling of nuclear, chemical, biological, radiological and other potentially deadly materials.

At least the case wasn’t taken to the Ninth Circuit…
The administration opposed the order, arguing, contrary to the U.S. Constitution, that people of faith forfeit their religious liberty once they engage in business.[…]
Almost everyone has suffered the trials and tribulations of Facebook. Constant changes that erode your privacy, nobody to get in contact with directly to problem solve when your account is hacked, and you just know that they are storing information. Face it, knowingly or not, Facebook spies on it’s users. Pay attention to the news and you will hear about someone who took a stance that FB didn’t like, and BOOM! Their account was temporarily blocked.
Now I’m sure that most of you have heard about all the new rage called SWATing. It made the news recently when someone read a conservative blog and got offended. Said person (Kimberlin) did a little research and came up with a hometown and address of residence for said blogger. Said offended jerk calls the police in the bloggers town and reports a massively heinous crime in progress at the bloggers address. Next thing you know, said blogger is awakened from his peaceful slumber by the gentle whispers of a SWAT team.
Now back to everybody’s favorite/most loathed social networking site. What would you do if you got swatted by a software program at Facebook?
Well, according to Mashable.com, it just could happen…
The screening process begins with scanning software that monitors chats for words or phrases that signal something might be amiss, such as an exchange of personal information or vulgar language.
If the scanning software flags a suspicious chat exchange, it notifies Facebook security employees, who can then determine if police should be notified.
People often get laughed at or avoided like crazy uncle Joe when they spout off about the NannyGov having whole rooms dedicated to this, yet here this humble little corner room of the internet has admitted that they themselves have and use this software. Hmm.

Because you know this is all about me, right?
If anyone has seen the recent net-rage “10 Commandments For My Daughters Potential Boyfriends,” then you are now, if not already familiar with Pastor Doug Giles.
Adding one more item on his to-do list, he has fired up a news and info site that reminds me a bit of The Blaze run by Glenn Beck. It is called Clashdaily.com The site is still in it’s infancy, but it looks like it may sprout well. With a host of contributors and Doug’s edgy tone, I doubt anyone will leave his site due to boredom. Give it a look-see.
