Diogenes: Michele Bachmann's originally from Iowa. They want to make sure she can't sneak back.
KidKorporate: I imagine all those A-10's we're retiring will follow suit. Just put some flashing red and blue lights on 'em. He's resisting! BRAAAAAAAAAAAAP
LesserEvil: We have a town nearby where the police dress like a SWAT team, in full tactical gear... they've never had a shooting or any crime more serious than a burglary, yet they are apparently ready for a Heat-style shooting battle with armed robbers.What ever happened to "keeping the peace" - we should be training out police officers that they are supposed to protect the citizens, not treat them like an insurgency.
