It would be nice if by simply taking the website offline that it all stops, but like a roach - you cannot kill them all. The data is released onto BitTorrent servers which is spread amongst thousands of PCs. So even if you managed to shutdown the Wikileaks website, several hundred even thousand of data mirrors already exist.

There are a lot of other requirements as well such as possibly requiring two more years of service if you are not retirement eligible and a requirement to have at least 10 years of service. The rules are so detailed and confusing, it's almost like they don't want you to do it.

Do you agree or disagree that NickP is doing the same thing Murtha did for years under the guise of constitutionally mandated issues? Don't let your bias get in the way.

The fact that he is injured is not funny. The point the cartoon is trying to make is funny. Unfortunately, the point is lost in translation when people believe that the cartoon is making fun of the man's military service. However, one should expect every aspect of themselves to be criticized and characterized when running for office. Losing your eye is not funny. I guess it is isn't OK for cartoonists to make Obama's ears look large either, because that would be making fun of a physical feature too?

Cartoon is a little jacked up, and funny. But when you use military service in your campaign, expect to see it criticized. Don't reveal what you don't what others to criticize.

I think if there was an 'economical' hosted pricing plan with no contract (you pay month to month) of $25 per month, you'd get more hits. I had wanted to start a Stack Exchange site but $129 is too steep.
