    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Democratic group crucial to John Kerry’s presidential campaign has paid felons – some convicted of sex offenses, assault and burglary – to conduct door-to-door voter registration drives in at least three election swing states.

    WASHINGTON (AP) – A sharply divided Supreme Court ruled Monday that people who refuse to give their names to police can be arrested, even if they’ve done nothing wrong.

    I don’t have any kind of eloquent argument against this, I will leave that to all the other bullshit artists. but to me this just means giving away more of my freedom and personal property rights. The more rights and freedom that you give away to “protect” yourself eventually lead to not being free OR protected.

Shadowscope has actually been around for six years or so, and six more before that as a BBS. It has gone through a boatload of changes over the last couple of years as I settle on a format for the site.
