You can always use a pseudonym on Hunch. We deliberately don't require email verification or real names.
I guess Hunch needs a 'Politics' category. I think it's important for the public to understand the background of a potential presidential candidate. Despite the so-called 'Texas Miracle', Rick Perry's stance on education is alarming. He's trying to privatize everything. For example, he would like to convert Texas highways into tollways or at least private-sector operations.
Very interesting dichotomy between online privacy practices vs. sentiments. This is actually one aspect of Hunch that I wrestle with. I love the recommendations aspect of Hunch, but am semi-paranoid about what kind of dossier I am assembling for Big Bro Google and/or the random spook.
I have been a long-time Pandora One subscriber. One of my irks has been that it seems to ignore my 'put it on the shelf' selections, and that it seems to have a top-40 like algorithm. However, I absolutely love the new beta interface! The shuffle feature works much better than the custom mix feature, and its music predictions are much more attuned to my tastes. Good job, Pandora!
Broken Government examines Republicans' purported efforts to circumnavigate process to redefine government. Most alarming to me is the concept of the 'Unitary Executive', which seeks to upset the balance of powers by giving the president greater unilateral powers. Regardless of political affiliation, this book will help you understand why process, not policy, is what really matters in government.
Given escalating political divisions, such as the recent US debt-ceiling crisis, this book identifies various ways politicians, pundits, and power hounds are using (or misusing) power politics to achieve their ends. Not only helpful to be able to identify these techniques for counter-strategy purposes, but also to help cultivate your own personal power base.
