44 - Obama blames 'human and systemic failures' in Detroit incident
Topic: Security 6:24 pm EST, Dec 29, 2009

It seems, that while Obama has many skills, that understanding intelligence data is not one of them.

Obama makes public blanket statements regarding intelligence data, and doesn't know how to actually prepare an intelligence summary. He's never held a job in his "career", yet, he can stand and make wide, sweeping statements about how a terrorist who is willing to die for his cause, snuck explosives on board an aircraft.

If Obama thinks that blaming someone is going to make the problem go away, he's a bigger fool than anyone has pointed out to date.

How can you make it harder to sneak explosives on board an aircraft? Well, you could simply ban carry on luggage, and X-Ray everything. If you wanted to make air travel SAFER... but that's not the goal...

The general public isn't stupid, nor are the terrorists. If you want to die for your cause, you could simply ingest C4 (it is malleable), with a radio detonator. How is that going to be stopped? Full body X-Ray? It's only a matter of time before someone does exactly that.

Sorry, keeping everyone unarmed on board simply makes them sheep to the slaughter. Give everyone a Louisville Slugger or a stickball bat. If we lose a few aircraft, so be it... however, the terrorist are going to have to content with an aircraft full of angry bat wielding passengers who don't want to go see "Allah" and get their 26 virgins... (see Air marshal weapon details made public - UPI.com)

Anything else that is "accomplished" by this "preliminary review of airline security measures to be delivered to him by Thursday" is more taxpayer monies wasted on ineffective security measures that delay and aggravate the current travelling public.

However, the saddest part, is that I'm sure there are going to be some new "security measures" that strip away more of our constitutional freedoms... not that it is anything new...

Well then...

How long do we have to continue to suffer under the fools that call themselves our protectors?

DHS and TSA are foolishly thinking that they are "protecting" us, however, it was shown that the security foolishness that they call Airline Safety was recently overcome, by a man wearing explosives in his underwear.

Now that we all know that the Air Marshals are using the Sig Sauer, and the fact that you can be provided weapons ON-BOARD, by the flight crew (I was given a full can of soda, unopened, on my last 12 flights), I can travel with my pen, a pencil, CD/DVDs (can be snapped in half for a quick slicing/puncture weapon), and various other things that I can legally put in my carry on... It's time to realize that the TSA is simply a gross waste of taxpayer money.

I agree with a fellow traveller on my last flight, who said that everyone should be issued baseball bats as they board. That will settle any inflight issues. (Stick ball bats for children under 12yrs old)

Instead of spending the taxpayer $$ on xraying your carry on, let anyone take anything onboard. I really don't care. If you try to blow up my airplane, I can guarantee that if we had baseball bats, you'd better be quick, because the entire airplane is going to get their licks in, if you fail to kill us... as well, you're still not going to get what you are aiming for... publicity... of course, only if the media were to cooperate... (that's the larger problem today.)

That's my 2cents, YMMV.

White House official's net neutrality comments irk ATT - (too bad...)
Topic: Technology 11:26 am EST, Nov 25, 2009

It's about time someone stepped up and said this.

Sorry ATT, but Net Neutrality is about EVERYTHING being equal on the internet.

We, the Users, pay for access from your crooked companies, and have made you huge, fat, and rich. Stop giving us the excuse that you have to manage bandwidth. You've known for YEARS that you were going to need more capability, and chose instead, to fatten your own wallets.

Now you're actually taking taxpayer money, (the same taxpayers that made you rich), and are planning on using it to make your networks larger. That's fraud in the highest degree. You should stand on your own, or die. We need to stop propping up your business...

If taxpayer dollars are going to fund the upgrades to your networks, how about giving every home free access? That only sounds fair to me...

That's just my 2 cents... Your mileage may vary.

2060: Humvee-sized, bulletproof meat-eating spiders attack • The Register
Topic: Science 8:47 pm EDT, May 16, 2009

Thus when the mighty hordes of four-metre-long spiders appear in 2060 or so, they will - by our calculations - be plated with 26cm arachnocomposite protection, in the same league as or better than modern ceramic body armour but immensely thicker.

I'm starting to look for used tanks now. Anyone else?

In a paper presented on Monday, chemist Pamela Mosier-Boss told the annual convention of the American Chemical Society in Salt Lake City that her team had gotten "very significant" evidence of some sort of nuclear reaction.null

I really hope this is real.

It would be the dawn of an entirely new age.

Clinic helps women feel at home on the range

The NRA's instructional shooting clinic Women on Target gives those unfamiliar or uncomfortable with guns, an opportunityto learn more about them in safe environment. Video by Yvette De La Garza

Good For Them!!!

These should be everywhere...

Funny though, this IS in California... where everyone else in the country thinks that Gun Control is too strict. I'm not saying that the gun control isn't harsh, but it is nice to see that people are still receiving weapons training, without being harassed by the government.

The acting chief financial officer of troubled mortgage giant Freddie Mac was found dead in his Fairfax County home early this morning after apparently committing suicide, Fairfax police said.

Ok, time to crank up the conspiracy engines... I can't wait to see the coroner's report on this "apparent suicide".
