FPR Blog 74: Panama Papers. Oh Boy!

What can I say about this that hasn’t already been said?

Oh, Wait. I know…


How this is a surprise to anyone is beyond me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m cool with the leak. I’m a huge believer in whistleblowers and hackers releasing information that throw dirty politicians under the bus.

I just don’t understand the shock.

I also don’t understand the mainstream media’s coverage on this.

FPR Blog 73: OverWorked, Under-Paid and Unappreciated. Story of an Employee.

People are working over 50 to 60 hours a week on average.

I’m not speaking of people who run their own business or love what they do. An equation with those two factors equals a labor of love. This means it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle.

I’m speaking of those who do not enjoy what they do. Even those who might like their job don’t want to waste their life on it.

Working hard does not entail 60 plus hour work weeks. That’s just an abuse of one’s work ethics.

That person who never says “no” or “I can’t” or “won’t” is usually the one you see come early and stay late.

Those people that will come in on Sundays because they’ve been “asked” to by their bosses aren’t saying yes because they love the company. They are saying yes because they’re afraid to lose their jobs.

FPR Blog 72: So, There's More Than One Phone the FBI Wants to Crack.

I only had one question as soon as I heard that the FBI couldn’t decrypt an iPhone. What the hell does our tax money go to? 

This isn’t just the FBI, these are multiple agencies pulling their resources together.

This was a horrific act and it seems like an honest breach of privacy to find out what’s on their phone.
