Okay, I listened to Law and Disorder Radio on WBAI Monday so I heard the pledge drive stuff.
Marjorie Webb was their guest in the studio. She's an attorney in Canada and she was on to discuss the biometrics that are being gathered at the border by the US government and how they are creating a data pool that they are not going to purge.
They -- Heidi Boghosian, Michael S. Smith and Marjorie Webb -- talked about the police state. But I disagree with them.
When I was listening to them talk about the biometrics, I thought about how Falluja was bombed and destroyed and targeted with rage and hate by the US. And when the attempts to destroy it were over, they refused to let residents back in unless they gave their biometrics.
So we're not living in a police state, my opinion. We're living in a military state. We're living in the United States of Falluja.
And pretty soon, as part of the crackdown on dissent, we probably won't be allowed in our own neighborhoods unless we surrenderr our DNA.
They played an excerpt of their interview with Margaret Kunstler about grand juries. If you missed it, you can listen at the Law and Disorder Radio website. And you can also read about that segment in yesterday's snapshot. And, swiping from C.I., be sure to read the National Lawyers Guild's new report, Heidi Boghosian's [PDF format warning] "The Policing of Political Speech: Constraints on Mass Dissent in the US."
Now for how Dems screwed themselves in the mid-terms.
That's what they keep screaming.
And then they try to scare us and threaten us.
For Dems to win, the group that voted for Barack has to vote.
But mid-terms aren't usually a time when they do.
Take my group (I voted for Ralph Nader, I did not vote for Corporatist War Hawk Barack). My generation overwhelmingly voted for Barack.
And now Barry thinks he can do some get-out-the-vote appearances and his cult will come back out.
Tell me something, where are the 18-year-olds who voted for him?
Many are off in college now.
Campus Progress, Think Progress and all the others forgot about it. They were too busy doing celebrity videos to get the message out by registering.
So high schoolers who voted for him to be president are now in college and they can't vote for him because they have to drive home to vote. And it's too late for absentee ballots.
What about if you were already at college? Let's hope your college stayed the same.
But those primaries, those sure were tight battles, weren't they?
Cult of St. Barack did you vote at college or did you go home and try to sway there (or did you both in both primaries -- many Barackers did). If you voted at home in the primary, you may be registered there. You really want a road trip to vote for Barry?
See, they didn't think about it. They didn't realize registration was an issue.
They really are idiots. With independents lost, it's thought that Barack has to turn out his core and there is every indication that many in his core won't be able to vote.
(I'm voting Green.)
Now for NBC's Chuck. I really didn't think Casey would have made a Hillary joke. It seems against everything Casey is. (He wouldn't have made that joke while she was First Lady.) So I had that problem with that. Casey's just so anti-social that I really can't see him striving to fit in unless he's playing a character.
Other than that, it was a great episode and that's because it was about Casey. He really is the strongest part of the show.
Chuck and Sarah had some nice scenes.. But, except for one scene with Devin doing baby stuff,
Ellie (Chuck's sister) has decided she does want Chuck to play their mom. (Who is played by Linda Hamiton of Terminator fame.) But Chuck learns that she's running some bad guys so -- despite Sarah warning him it might not be what it seems -- he cuts her out and she comes calling on him. Over the phone.
Morgan had some nice scenes with Casey's daughter and because Morgan showed huge bravery or extreme stupidity on the mission (to take out some bad guys, he electroucted himself), Casey even fixed them back up at the end of the episode.
It was a huge, huge improvement over last week's episode.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
