The CBP believes these rules are necessary to investigate terrorism, child pornography, etc., but I’m not so sure. For instance, if you were a terrorist, would you really bring your laptop across the border with your plans to blow up the White House? No, you’d simply e-mail yourself the plans to blow up, poison, or incinerate whatever you wish to target. As with most anti-terrorism initiatives, this one does little or nothing to fight terrorists. It merely inconveniences law-abiding travelers.

Thought you could use yet another realization of “security theater”.

Parents: Dying Girl Kathleen Edward Taunted By Neighbors In Trenton
http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news/the…

A Trenton (Michigan) family with a dying 7-year-old daughter says they are being harassed by a neighborhood couple. And those accused neighbors aren’t disagreeing. Go inside the the story to watch a video report from FOX 2’s Ron Savage.

I find it hard to imagine any feud with my neighbors that would cause me to do anything to upset a dying child or their family. If I had a way I’d submit this to O’Reilly for a “pinhead” award! Or, worse I’d call them !!!


RANT: Yet Another “Bank” Bailout?

That’s the theoretical definition: the practical one – the legislation, if enacted, could protect bank and mortgage processors from liability for false or improperly prepared documents. In other words, with one simple signature Obama has the capacity to prevent tens of billions in damages to banks from legal fees, MBS deficiency claims, unwound sales, and to formally make what started this whole mess: Court Fraud perpetrated by banks, a legal act, and to finally trample over the constitution. Will Obama do it? Potentially – the banking lobby certainly has enough power over him and his superiors, the members of the FOMC. On the other hand, the populist revolt that will surely follow the enactment of such a law will certainly end any dreams of a second term, and potentially of a completed first one. The drama is now on: will Obama openly side on behalf of the bankers (without a “blame the republicans” fall back this time) or of the foreclosure “victims” (granted, the bulk of whom are deadbeat homeowners who should never have owned a home to begin with). We doubt a decision will be reached before the midterms, although quite a bit now hangs in the balance.

Hard to imagine the powers that be not giving themselves a pass!
