hasty ambush: [safr.kingfeatures.com image 760x237]


Is it some kind of law that conservative humor isn't funny? I mean, I already know conservatives don't care about the meanings of words, but damn.

True. But most rational people would change into clean, fresh pants. America seems to have changed into even poopier more fear-stenched pants. :-/


No, America has decided that the real problem here is wearing pants.  If we weren't wearing pants, we would have no pants to poop, afterall.  And pants are so restrictive, no pants is very liberating.  If we want to stop pooping our pants, we must stop... wearing... pants.

Bruce Schneier is a very prolific and respected cryptographer.  He also sometimes rambles on the internet about how he thinks the government might be reading his e-mail, and that since it's unlikely that someone would try to sneak a bomb, blade, etc  through a TSA checkpoint designed to detect such things, then TSA checkpoints must be entirely impotent because in their presence not a single attack has been thwarted.

That's really a counterfactual, isn't it? How many successful attacks have there been on aircraft in the U.S. since the TSA took over screening?

TSA is transportation security theater, but the assertion they've not thwarted a single attack is impossible to prove.

Yes, it's a dumb argument.  I hate the TSA and the stupid checkpoints as well, but people make the dumbest arguments (as above) against them.  "Not a single prisoner has escaped that prison by climbing over the wall.  As such, we should stop wasting money on maintaining that wall."


Non-white voters are no longer disenfranchised, we should get rid of laws to prevent disenfranchisement of non-white voters.

Seems the argument has legal merit.

You know, both of those quotes could be said with absolute conviction today. The NSA may have no interest in spying on American citizens, that does not mean they do not want the capability of intercepting intelligence even if it comes from a domestic, non-US citizen, source.
