Journal: Terror warning stupidity

Journal by RY

One of the news stories I read that just does not add up. FUD. From a news story at,9171,1101040705-658292,00.html

The Sell

"there's very serious intelligence that's corroborated, that's multiple sourced, that indicates that al-Qaeda is intent on hitting us and hitting us hard this year."

The Disclamer

"we don't have specific information."

The information below sounds specific...

The Sell

Along with this now familiar general warning, the FBI has introduced the specter of a new terrorism threat: booby-trapped beer coolers

Sounds like the biggest danger is to the free beer crowd. "Buba, run down and grab that floating cooler it may have free beer". ' Bubba grabs cooler, BOOM, pink mist clears,' Damm that beer has a kick.

The Disclamer.

FBI and Department of Homeland Security officials say no such devices have actually been discovered, nor is there any current intelligence that terrorists are hatching plots involving floating bombs

There are morons working for the media and government.

Journal: New laws make criminal recording in theaters

I found this article,4149,1425736,00.asp In Eweek. New laws in California, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio criminilize recording movies in a theater. The penalties range from misdomenors to felonys. Now theaters are checking bags and jackets of patorns prior to entering.

My favorite Quotes of the story are "The state laws make it easier to prosecute individuals caught in theaters because the charges focus simply on the operation of a camera" and "Enforcement is always a last resort, but we hope this will be a deterrent,"

What ever hapend to making laws which will be enforced, rather than
