No double standard here…
“I personally think we do more harm than good by having our drones attack some potential terrorists who have not been tried or proven that they are guilty,” Carter said in an interview with Russia Today.
“But in the meantime, the drone attacks also kill women and children, sometimes in weddings… so this is the kind of thing we should correct,” he added.
Google+ added a new feature last night called Communities, which are similar to Facebook Groups. In less than 24 hours I’ve already been banned from one. It was the Community for Progressives. My offense? Posting this comment on someone’s post. #WorthIt
Today is the 79th anniversary of the repeal of alcohol Prohibition. On this day I give you, not only the beautiful image above, but also this list, via the Economic Freedom blog, of items that the government still prohibits. I would probably add Buckyballs to the list.
“Look, I just have to search the inside of your mouth for explosives… with my tongue.”

The Senate recently passed an amendment to the NDAA (we still don’t know if it will pass the House) to help protect Americans from being held indefinitely without a trial, at least by letter of the law.
While I’m glad it passed it wasn’t by a huge margin. You would think something like not giving the government the power to hold Americans for an infinite amount of time without a trial would be uncontroversial, but I guess not.
At any rate, this is the real reason I’m posting this: I want you to see which Senators voted which way.
Edit: As Congressman Amash notes, this amendment is pretty toothless. Which makes it all the more disheartening that so many senators still voted against it.
NAY’s (i.e. we don’t want to prohibit the indefinite detention of Americans who have not been tried):
YEA’s (i.e. we do want to prohibit the indefinite detention of Americans who have not been tried):
Stephen Colbert on the Petraeus scandal: “If our troops were still in Afghanistan, don’t you think we’d be hearing about that on the news, instead of all this bullshit?”
That turkey could use a little more pepper
Zombie-scented cologne would have been so much easier
Ok, after watching the second episode of The Walking Dead I’m left wondering why no one has thought to create zombie-scented cologne that would trick the monsters into thinking you are one of them. What? Are there no capitalists left in this post-apocalyptic world? This seems like a major market failure that I don’t think would have occurred in real life. The writers are going to have to do better if they want me to find this story believable.
