"Andersen Consulting's change of name proved to be fortuitous as it avoided the taint when Arthur Andersen was effectively dissolved as a result of its role in the later Enron scandal." Technically correct but disingenuous as the name was arguably primarily tainted due to the media and government scape goating Arthur Anderson. And the company was "effectively dissolved" because the government abused their power ala Megaupload and Kim Dot Com. Courts later recognized this but it was too late. #disingenuous #benevolent #butthurt #unfair #little_known #status_quo #BS #fucked_up #goliaths_screw_smaller #pub

"Take, for instance, the case of Clarence Elkins. Elkins was sentenced to life in prison for the 1998 murder of his mother-in-law. The witness that helped put Elkins behind bars was his six year old niece, Brooke. Brooke had been staying the night with her grandmother when someone came into the house. The man killed the grandmother and sexually assaulted Brooke before fleeing. Later, describing the man, Brooke initially claimed that he looked like her Uncle Clarence. Later, she changed her story. She said he was her Uncle Clarence. That testimony proved to be so damning that Elkins was sentenced to life in prison, even though he had an alibi and was not known as a violent man. Years later, the little girl retracted her statement, but she had a difficult time getting the legal system to believe her. When she wanted to accuse, they were all ears, but when she wanted to free an innocent man, that proved to be much more difficult. Eventually, after a legal battle, Elkins was set free. He had spent seven long years in prison, all due to the false testimony of his niece." #BS #corruption #government #laws #status_quo #prison #pub
"One can also examine the Fells Acre Day Care Center, which found itself in the middle of a legal firestorm in 1984. The case started off slowly, but quickly gathered steam. One student accused his teacher, Gerald Amirault, with sexual abuse. He did not tell of sexual abuse until he was questioned by his mother and his uncle. He and his cousin had been playing a sexual charged game, which is why the adults felt the need to question the child. What started off as one accusation turnedinto Gerald being charged with raping nine children, while his mother and sister, who also worked at the daycare, were charged with crimes against four other children The incident...turned into a witch hunt. Police had an open meeting with parents, giving them warning signs of sexual abuse and instructing them to look for them in their children. One can usually find something if looking hard enough. If a child as much as wet the bed, it was because of sexual abuse at the hands of a teacher" #BS #corruption #laws #witch_hunts #status_quo #government #pub
colinr's comment: "you don't need another app to avoid people, just look at what friends have checked in where that day in the 4sq app. It's way easier than going back and forth between two apps. i'm surprised even 2,500 people are actively using this. even more surprised nymag thought this was worth writing about." #from:Windows_Phone #BS #PR #status_quo #pointless #pub

The most common name in modern American usage, is simply "the Civil War". Although used rarely during the war, the term "War Between the States" became widespread afterward in the Southern United States. During and immediately after the war, Northern forces often used the term "War of the Rebellion", while the Southern equivalent was "War for Southern Independence". The latter regained some currency in the late 20th century, but has again fallen out of use. Other terms often reflect a more explicitly partisan view of events, such as "War of Northern Aggression", used by some Southerners, or the "Freedom War", used by their black counterparts to celebrate the effect the war had on ending slavery. In most foreign languages, the war is called "War of Secession". #history #historical_revisionism #BS #i_am_benevolent_pattern #politics #democracy #USA #cIvil_wars #pub
