One month to Revolution: The premiere of Season 2 of the post grid-collapse television series Revolution is scheduled for September 25th. It will air on Wednesdays at 8:00pm ET/PT. The series was renewed for another 22 episodes. It is fairly mediocre as sci-fi/survivalist television drama goes, but it is the only game in town. Seeing Revolution only makes me miss Firefly even more.

D.L. mentioned that there are alternatives to PRISM-compromised software available here: Prism-break.org. And speaking of which: NSA paid millions to cover Prism compliance costs for tech companies.

The slippery slope to Depravity and the Tyranny of Enforced Political Correctness: Christian Photographer Forced to do Work for Lesbian Couple. Note: After reading of this decision, I updated my Provisos Page with the following new paragraph: "SurvivalBlog.com is an entirely private information service that is my sole property made available to others as a form of free personal expression under my de jure Preamble Citizen's right as later guaranteed in the First Article in Amendment to the Constitution. SurvivalBlog.com is not a "public accommodation" and it is preemptively exempt from any forced or coerced accommodation, via legislation (or bureaucratic interpretation thereof) or any dictate, directive, or decree by any agency of government or by any NGO or by any individual under any future "Fairness Doctrine" or similar charade. I reserve the right to refuse service (to wit: to refuse posting, linking, or mention of anyone or anything, at my sole discretion) to any person, agency, corporation, or other entity. I do so for the sake of maintaining sound business practices and to maintain my moral and religious principles."

Another one of Mayor Bloomberg's gun-grabbing mayors goes down in flames: Filthy Filner Resigns. (OBTW, someone ought to do statistical study and determine the criminality rate of these "crime fighting" mayors, versus the citizenry as a whole.)
