Government Related News on Tech Net News and Opinion
Brian thought it might be a good idea to break the news up into more organized groups. After only one show’s worth of hindsight, I would have to agree that it seems like a great idea. It certainly seems to encourage more conversation from the chat room and I already know it made it easier on the post edit.
So, if it is received well, we shall not only publish the full news show, but edited segments to better serve the listeners. Feel free to comment or email us with feedback. This edited edition is all about government related news.

We opened with some Sarah Donner. They were live tracks recorded with her permission at this year’s 2014 Gen Con. The tracks were Going Under and Fossil Girl You can find out more about her at:
There has been a lot of talk about guns, and gun control since the tragic events that happened at Sunny Hook elementary school. Watch this video, in it Penn & Teller discuss gun control, and exactly why it’s bullshit.
I had to take a few minutes to catch my breath after this one, I was laughing that hard. Tourists and residents in London’s government district, got an eye full when Dan Motrescu brought central London traffic to a standstill when he mounted the bronze statue of the 19th-century Duke of Cambridge on Nov. 23. Police were forced to cordoned off Whitehall, a street that is home to several government departments, as Mr. Motrescu climbed up and down the statue at one point squatting on the top of the statues head (did I mention he was naked?)
It took several hours for police to talk him down. Yes you read that right, several hours.
Motrescu, a Ukrainian citizen of no fixed address, was convicted Tuesday of possession of an offensive weapon, criminal damage and a public order offense. A magistrate at Westminster Magistrates’ Court sentenced him to 12 weeks in jail.
If you thought this story couldn’t get any funnier; WAIT!
Todrick Hall has rewritten the classic fairy tale Cinderella
In Cinderfella Todrick tells the classic fairy tale from a young Gay man’s point of view, with an amazing cast, Cinderfella will give you goosebumps throughout the video with the blend of 40’s classics and Disney music as well as some of today’s hits sung to an original beat. The message of this video is clear, and powerful (and if for some odd reason you miss the point Todrick makes sure you get it at the end of the video).

The good news is that President Obama has finally created some jobs. The bad news it that they are all in India (Source)
Fear not listeners who still have faith in hope and change and those who are still hoping for a job and some spare change, I am jesting for today is Thursday, 11 August 2011 and it is Presidential Joke Day. According to holidayinsights.com began in 1984 with a remark from President Reagan. The president who thought he was doing a sound check said “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.” The president was, in fact, transmitting to a live feed… and I thought I could put my foot in my mouth.
