Looks like a really, really bad piece of pseudo-journalism and a perfect example of how the new media has no sense of responsibility toward the facts or objectivity. Doesn't matter if it's red or blue; it's junk.



Yeah, it's fake alright.

Studies have shown that police miss more often than private citzens.

The only "security" should be the airline workers demanding proof that the bullets loaded in your weapon are aircraft tolerance frangible rounds.

Or just train and arm the flight attendants with tasers.

That makes some sense. I hadn't thought of that option.

If you can't figure out that a woman in a wheelchair is in a wheelchair for a reason, how can I expect you to spot a terrorist?


Yeah, see, that's the lesson I'd take from it too. Even knowing the fallible nature of human beings and especially large, bloated organizations, you gotta wonder how institutional incompetence can get established to such an extent.

Thank L. Neal Smith for that one. I got it from his book, Probability Broach.

The new DOJ website is kinda creepy.


What's black and white and "red" all over? The Department of Justice's newly designed website. Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop. And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."

Not to go all paranoid on you, but the new DOJ website is kinda creepy. Since when is black an official color of the US? What's wrong with red, white and blue? And it's not the brief of DOJ to enforce either the common law or the will of mankind.

US government tracking your gold and silver purchases.


...[s]tarting on January 1st in 2012, US federal law will require coin and bullion dealers to report to the Internal Revenue Service all gold and silver coin purchases and sales greater than $600.

No that is not an error, they tacked the gold coin tracking regulations into the health bill. They are just tacking stuff on wherever they can.
