Security Expert Bruce Schneier responds to TSA Security Theater

http://www.cnn.com

Famous security expert Bruce Schneier responds to the TSA's recently-implemented security theater measures. Bruce knows real security comes from openness and freedom - not privacy invasion and cameras. From the article:
"A terrorist attack cannot possibly destroy a country's way of life; it's only our reaction to that attack that can do that kind of damage. The more we undermine our own laws, the more we convert our buildings into fortresses, the more we reduce the freedoms and liberties at the foundation of our societies, the more we're doing the terrorists' job for them."

Car Registration is a scam

http://donttreadonmike.wordpress.com

When they were done extorting our Christmas money out of us, they didn’t say “Thank You”, they said, “Congratulations!”………….”CONGRATULATIONS!?” As if we’re supposed to NOT feel dirty about what just happened but instead feel proud that we did our “civic duty!”

Dicks.

Lansing passes smoking ban, residents continue to exit Michigan

http://www.withoutadjectives.com

As the legislative year ended in Michigan, the new reported that "Gov. Jennifer Granholm has gone to a Lansing brew pub to sign a law banning smoking."

Michigan lost 89,844 residents from 2005 to 2008, according to a new MSU report released today. … MSU Land Policy Institute Director Soji Adelaja said the decline was largely attributable to people who moved to other states seeking job opportunities and "better quality of life." I would say that "better quality of life" is a place where the ruling class doesn't think that passing more laws will make people want to live there.
