Congress: Chronically Unprepared for National Preparedness Month

Last year, a resolution declaring September 2012 to be “National Preparedness Month” for fighting the War on Terror wasn’t introduced until halfway through September.

No, Actually, Most Terrorists Threatening the USA AREN'T Muslims

“Most terrorists are Muslim,” say the ultraconservative supporters of religious-based profiling and surveillance in America. The claim is resurfacing in the last week:

Christopher Cook, April 19 2013:

What Should Your Legal Rights Be?

The real question they’re asking is: What legal rights should every American citizen have? […]

No Terror Here

Here’s what the newspaper left outside my hotel door says today: Terror Returns. The newspaper says that Americans are “rattled”.

Is it true? Are we rattled? Are we living in terror?

Let me go check. Here’s what the lobby of my hotel looks like. No one is in terror here. They’re too busy checking […]
