say, something involving heads on spikes...
Around 18,000 litres of Scotch poured into a local sewage works after the
gaffe by staff at Chivas Brothers bottling plant.
It's... sacrilege, it is!
The aim isn't 'sensitivity in speech' or any such bullshit: it's control over what people say.
From a journalist who, up till now, has defended just about every damn thing Obama has done:
“I’m all for killing terrorists, but the question is, are you going to be the only one who is in charge of deciding weather you can kill an American citizen?” Williams asked. “You are allowing the president of the United States to decide who to kill and when to kill, who is an American citizen. I think that’s pretty appalling, in my opinion. I think that’s unconstitutional.”
Listen to the whole thing: all of a sudden he's singing the praises of individualism and free markets. Little weasel. He also does the 'Obama got bin Laden' line.
Speaking of which,
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has customized its Predator drones, originally built for overseas military operations, to carry out at-home surveillance tasks that have civil libertarians worried: identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones, government documents show.
I'm guessing we'll need a magnum version
Yeah, might be a slight problem...
Ran across this a few days ago; A Very Bad Thing:
The KN-08 has been called a "game-changer" for the DPRK, and with good
reason. Assuming the missile achieves its projected range, the KN-08 would give Pyongyang a strike platform capable of reaching much of the CONUS. And with a mobile launch platform--supported by one of the
world's most advanced denial and deception programs--the KN-08 will be
extremely difficult to track and target. Among its various roles, the
kN-08 could easily deliver a sudden, surprise attack against the U.S.,
giving the North increased leverage in its dealings with Washington, and
our allies in the region.
The norks with a missile that can reach the continental US; just effing bloody wonderful
