    An FDA employee went kookoo on a flight from Beijing to Dulles. I find it interesting that there is next to no coverage here in the USA. The passenger was trouble from the get-go, but the first officer decided he was OK after the crew chief asked the captain to check things out due to odd behavior. Flight was about 90 minutes out when the FDA employee began talking about taking over the flight and so forth, prompting the captain to squawk a 7500, dump fuel, and return to SIN. Prior, the passenger had put hands on wifey and injured another attendant. United handled the situation very well, treating the passengers to first-class amenities until the flight could resume on Saturday. I find it interesting to observe how when United is perceived as pooching, media are all over the story like stink on rice. When they do something worthy of praise, <crickets>. I despise the networks more with each passing day. PS: It things like this that make me want wifey to retire. People are nuttier than squirrel poo anymore.

    How not surprising is this? Very. MA is a stink-hole. Probably the worst state in the union. I wonder how many others will jump on this idiot's bandwagon.

    Yeah well, SCOTUS is notorious for getting things impossibly wrong. I would not trust them to tell me water is wet without leaving some backdoor open for further government involvement in the issue. SCOTUS != credible, even when they get things marginally right on rare occasion. See Heller and MacDonald for prime examples of this.

    I don't. The definitions given there are OK as far as they go. The problem is that they don't go far enough. Arms: any instrumentality, whether physical or otherwise, that may be used as a means of defense by a man against any threat to his person or property, as well as that of others. I'd call that a good start, if not even quite there. One of the really deep and troubling problems I've noticed with people is their apparent inability to properly judge scope. The definitions given in the referenced site are far too narrow. The weapons allowed the military should always be a subset of those allowed the militia. ALWAYS.

    I think it works in small groups, whether nomadic or something else. It seems the reason it works is the absence of certain mental constructs that do not survive in small groups. Ideas such as "the state" and "government" are abstractions that imply things that are patently false. The falsehood of these notions becomes readily apparent in small groups - "authority" to do this and that, in particular. For some reason that I have not yet quite grasped, in larger groups these lies take root. I suspect it has much to do with the relative emotional distance that comes when people are strangers to one another. In a small tribal group, everyone knows one another, including each person's "bullshit", if you will. In huge groups such as cities, there is an element of removal between individuals. Consider the old beat cop - came from the neighborhood he patrolled. Most people knew him by name, they greeted each other, and with such relations in place, such cops were less likely to do reprehensible things to the local residents of his territory. Today, police have been effectively "anonymized" - removed from all familiarity with the people, partly through training, partly through assigning them to places where the are unknown to anyone. That emotional separation allows them to regard those whom they "serve and protect" as objects more than as fellow human beings. I am thinking that given the problems that arise in large groups - the objectification of others due to the absence of familiarity and the interpersonal connections that arise therefrom - free society becomes a very doubtful possibility. The objectification phenomenon seems to enable all the worst qualities of a human being; the fear, avarice, will to ignorance, and lassitude are enabled by it. Add to that the atrocious behavior of those in political positions feeding the same weaknesses with their divisive talk and promises of something for nothing if you vote for them, and a free, agorist society seems just this side of impossible.

    Must agree on this. Were that the goal, elimination of competition, I am sure there would have been far better avenues that would not risk the nuking of Mecca in the case of public discovery. 9/11 was in some capacity a US government operation, whether planned and executed directly, or simply allowed to happen. Truth rests somewhere between those extremes. Someone here has a lot of blood on their hands.

    Spanish hooligans thirsty for blood... Um... it's SPAIN, for Christ's sake. If this outburst confuses you, it is then imperative you stick your ass into a library and your nose into a book on Spanish history. The opening sentence, above, is the very definition of "redundant". That aside, can you imagine how Brussels must have blown its anal glands when this became even a remote possibility? My entire family is in Europe, and still I cannot but get a kick out of watching that most stupid of continents implode.

    B52s are in revetments with crews sleeping in aircraft. DoD recalling at least 1000 pilots to service - a trustworthy source claiming it's actually more. Is this saber rattling, or are we about to become embroiled in something none of us wants? Seems the older I get, the less I know.

    Ah yes, the ever-enlightened European. Even though I and my mom are the only two members of our family not in Europe, which is to say all my family is all over Europe, I will laugh when that continent burns to the waterline. I have nothing but disgust for those people, some of my own family members included. It is a shame that the handful of people there who are not whipped, conquered serviles will be consumed with the rest.

I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this.
