There are five boxes to use in the defense of Liberty: The Soap Box, the Mail Box, the Ballot Box, the Jury Box, and the Ammunition Box. Please use them in that order.

For everyone who subscribes to the FiveBoxes news update via email or RSS, we have a few important changes to inform you about. Currently, all of this is handled by a service known as FeedBurner. We signed up when FeedBurner was still an independent company, and we were happy with the service. In May of 2007, Google acquired FeedBurner for $100 million. With the current leadership at Google doing things that endanger the privacy of its users, we cannot in good faith and conscience continue to use any Google products.

As of September 1, we will be discontinuing our use of all Google services. This includes RSS and email subscriptions, Google Analytics, and all other things we used Google for.

For those of you with an email subscription, we will migrate your address over to our new self-hosted email service. You will not have to re-subscribe.

For those of you subscribing to FiveBoxes via RSS, you will need to manually update your feed link to this one: feed://www.fiveboxes.com/?feed=rss2

We also are making a few other changes around here as well:

  • We’ll be focusing less effort on duplicating news and opinion you can get elsewhere, and more effort on in-depth well-researched articles and insightful op-eds.
  • Instead of the Weekend Reader, we will be relying more on Twitter for this type of content. You can follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/fiveboxes, follow @fiveboxes with your Twitter client, check our homepage for our most recent tweets, or just wait for the weekly Twitter summary email.
  • Our home page will be receiving a redesign to reflect our new focus.

If you have any requests or ideas on how we can make FiveBoxes serve you better, please contact us.

Thanks for your readership.

ObamaConomy Update

Must be nice

While many Americans have traded vacations for stay-cations — or no vacation at all — Michelle Obama and her daughter had one heck of a time in Spain. And both home and abroad, the world is taking note:

ObamaConomy Update

ObamaCare Update

We can get a good idea what we have to look forward to by looking at other countries who have socialist healthcare programs:

Other ObamaCare headlines:

By the numbers

  • 36% – Number of people who approve of Obama’s handling of the war in Afghanistan (a record low)
  • 41% – Obama’s current approval rating (a record low)
  • 35 – Average number of weeks that a person is unemployed (highest since1950). This is double the number when he took office, and 14 weeks higher than the previous high of 20 weeks.
  • $22,000,000 – Amount of US taxpayer dollars spent training IT workers… in Asia… to be hired by US companies wanting to offshore jobs. The program is run by a hand-picked Obama appointee
  • $87,000 per year – Salary for Major Nidal Hasan that the US Army — and the US taxpayer — is still paying to the Ft. Hood murderer
  • $30,400 – Per-plate cost at a recent Democrat party fundraiser
  • $700,000 – Amount of taxpayer dollars spent to have Andy Griffith do an advertisement to reassure us that ObamaCare is good for us
  • 86% – Number of Americans who believe there should be more limits on what the federal government can do
  • 94% – Number of American who reject the idea that the government should be allowed to do most anything

Abandon Ship!

It has come to our attention that Christina Romer, chair of the Obama Administration’s Council of Economic Advisers, has decided to resign. Ouch.
