Don't want to dick around with all that security stuff, the patdowns and the backscatter scanners and all that? Just grease a palm or two and you can stroll right through.They're not even trying to pretend this is about security any more.

It looks like all those folks at TSA who are 'just doing their jobs' are 'just getting cancer' from the backscatter machines.

When police cars, lightbars on, pulled up outside her house in the middle of the night, a Rochester woman began filming the traffic stop from her front yard. She was arrested and taken to jail by a police officer who first said she was "anti-police," then claimed to feel "threatened" by her; and ultimately told her that he didn't have to explain himself at all. Her arrest, which required the officer to enter her property without permission, was on a charge of "obstructing government administration."

Be fully prepared to refuse the backscatter scan and be shaken down. In my case this past week, I was kinda looking forward to it... I was set to loudly and ecstatically enjoy the experience in an exaggerated fashion to try and spread the discomfort around to my temporary oppressors.

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it), I didn't make any mention of my scheme or how ridiculous and counterproductive I think the security theater in our airports is while in line, which is apparently something that the TSA looks for when singling people out for re-education. I was waved thru each way without incident.

The UK Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has apologized for 40 years' worth of clandestine, illegal mutilation of the corpses of British nuclear energy workers. When these workers died, pathologists and coroners colluded with the energy authority to remove their organs without the consent or knowledge of their families, in part to remove the possibility of a lawsuit for cancer caused by their work environment, but partly out of a seeming cavalier, better-safe-than-sorry approach that had them scooping out organs that had no diagnostic value. The corpses were then stuffed with random detritus from around the shop to disguise their mutilation; for example, broomsticks were used in place of bones removed from workers who'd died of leukemia. Here and here.

Some of the uglier provisions of USAPATRIOT were due to expire Sunday. President Obama, who campaigned on a pro-privacy, anti-USAPATRIOT platform, signed it back into business for another year at the zero hour.
