http://blogs.forbes.com

Apparently, the TSA is planning to scan you beyond the airports...they're going to do it at "large events", train stations, and even pedestrians and people walking in their cars. They're going to set up "mobile scanning units".

http://news.cincinnati.com

FBI agents raided a junkyard in Cincinnati and sent all 40 employees home, costing the business $50,000. The junkyard's owner is pissed because all the FBI thugs had to do was request the documents they wanted and he would have provided them. Just like Barry Cooper letting drug suspects run or the A&E show-cops in Detroit flash-banging an 8-year-old to death, these thugs just wanted an adrenaline rush.

Cash no longer accepted for payment for government services

http://www.contracostatimes.com

Discovery Bay government will no longer accept cash in payment of all services including water bills and park reservations. Its for the concern of public employees who are at threat from thieves. Of course there never has been an incident of such a threat. Of course it is also mentioned that some people have been using cash to remain anonymous when requesting public records. The local government wants to know who is requesting public documents. This is most likely the real reason. It received four public information requests anonymously last fall.

However, she also spends a great deal of time in the letter blaming the FBI for what happened, saying that the lives of "two families were changed forever, because of the unnecessary tactics of the FBI."

"I have never denied that I was the one who fired that fateful shot that morning and am taking on that responsibility. I still have not heard the FBI taking any responsibility in all of this because they refuse to accept that their unnecessary actions played an integral part," she wrote.
