I saw my first gun-packing meathead in Walmart last week end (why, he was White - how did you guess?). I was very tempted to go up to him and ask :"What are you so scared of, that you have to carry a gun in public?" We all should, every time.

Unless you're living in Beirut, the real reason for 'packing' is race-based fear and / or small, limp junk.

"The rat has no voluntary control of its limbs, but the severed spinal cord can be reactivated and stimulated to perform natural walking. We can control in real-time how the rat moves forward and how high it lifts its legs."

This also accidentally describes the nearly-attained goals of the US state security organs (with assists from the POTUS and the Supremes).

Attack the US Homeland (vomit), and watch the paranoiacs and self-serving greedy pricks (Chertoff, et al) come to power. This will do far more damage to a supposedly enlightened, modern country that respects the rights and privacies of its citizens than the actual attacks, even if successful.

Mission Accomplished

9/11 came and went and they didn't learn a thing. Incompetent as ever.

Far more pointedly: the Boston Marathon came and went. So either they let it happen to gain even more power [adjusts tinfoil hat], or all the 'post 9/11' security is total, absolute bullshit, with everything to do with career advancement then an early retirement to a payment in kind consulting gig, and nothing at all to do with the Fath^H^H^H^H Homeland.

The main difference is it is cheaper because it can be produced from massively subsidized, aquifer-draining corn.

Plus, corn is used extensively as feed for cattle. But since they really can't digest it for long without getting sick, Big Beef lays on the antibiotics.

Subsidized Corn: making people fat, draining aquifers, and creating superbugs - what can't it do?
