It’s called the assault intervention device, and it is being tested in the Los Angeles County jail. The device, developed by Raytheon, is controlled by a joystick and computer monitor and emits a beam about the size of a CD up to distances of about 100 feet. The energy traveling at the speed of light [...]
Another great “what if?” monologue from Judge Napolitano on the lies and tyranny of the state, and the illusions of the two-party system. What if … this is what finally got him fired?
And he didn’t want to give up his meat, coconut oil, and lard. This biographical sketch shows that Hitler really wasn’t a vegetarian. (Another great “Downfall” spoof.)
This is one of those junk science headlines that you just love to hate: “Feds: Fresh milk 150 times more dangerous than pasteurized dairy.” I’ll try to summarize this piece from the Washington Crimes without being too silly.

This is the sort of thing I used to make with Play-Doh as a kid. But now, in the age of never growing up, it’s [...]
A website has gathered approximately 25 flyers from the FBI’s “Communities Against Terrorism” that serve the purpose of guiding American Boobus on how to spot and report “Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities.” The “threat” areas are the following: hobby shops, farm supply stores, martial arts/paintball, dive/boat shops, tattoo shops, etc. I encourage you to click [...]
USDA Rural Development provided a “Value-Added Producer Grant” to a potato chip maker so the company can secure new contracts to sell more junk food that Michele Obama crusades against in her “war” on obesity. Meanwhile, the USDA’a brother-in-arms, the FDA, has shut down the operations of a peaceful businessman who sold raw milk to [...]
It’s “for the children,” so thank the paternal state. This is a speed limit sign in southeastern Michigan (Oakland County). The enforcement will be interesting. Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.
