If it passes the Senate, it is expected to breeze through the House, which passed a similar bill last September.
- America speaks with one voice. Unfortunately, it emanates from its ass.
- It’s looking more and more like the American contribution to population reduction will be in the form of diagnosing half its citizens as mental incompetents.

- Sadly, it appears that a constitutional amendment that would ban the desecration of the U.S. flag may have a chance of passing.
- Schools with kids from wealthier families (and a high percentage of collegebound students) are not viewed as good prospects by military recruiters.

- A few years ago while in San Francisco, Bob Woodward made an intriguing remark. He told the San Francisco Chronicle he wouldn’t expose Deep Throat until the man died but that when he died people would begin to research the case and one thing would lead to another. Woodward said it would all lead to a “fantastic” discovery
- This partially came out in the national media last week but the spin was that it was just a case of blowback and that these US trained commandos had come back to haunt their former handlers.

- Children living in military bases are twice as likely to be killed by a parent or caregiver than other children. Is this because military parents, who are schooled in violence, are more violent towards their kids?

He is heavily medicated today and unable to speak to the media."
- Careless mistake reveals subversion of Windows by NSA.

- On August 1, 2001, just five and a half weeks before the 9–11 attacks, NSA awarded Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) a more than $2 billion, 10-year contract known as GROUNDBREAKER. The contract was never popular with NSA's career professionals.
- All the dead Iraqis and Afghans, being non-persons, won't be mentioned, with the exception of dead "insurgents" who had the audacity to resist the occupation of their countries.
