Errr, I’m not so sure that this is a good idea.
(everyone alltogether now) WTF?
AUGUSTA, GA. â€” Fear is a growth market. And youâ€™re the buyer. Americans, seized by paranoia, will throw money at anything that promises to protect us from harm.
Thatâ€™s why nobody blinked last week when the Augusta Commission approved a plan to spend $3.2 million over six years to defend the cityâ€™s fire hydrants from terrorist attack.
Two new employees will be hired exclusively to retrofit the hydrants with something called the Davidson Anti-Terrorism Valve, designed to keep foreign substances â€” anthrax, bubonic plague, cyanide, tennis balls â€” from entering the water supply.
Thereâ€™s no evidence of such a threat, mind you, but Utilities Director Max Hicks decided the Davidson ATV was a good buy. â€œThey are necessary to protect the system,â€ he says.
The â€œstealthâ€ valve was invented in the 1970s by a Sunnyside, Ga., contractor, Tom Davidson, who wanted to keep juvenile delinquents from throwing rocks and bottles into the hydrants. No one wanted it then. He sat on the idea for years, not even bothering to file for a patent.
After 9/11, Davidson had an epiphany: If teenage punks could infiltrate the water supply, a terrorist could poison a city through its fire hydrants.
Crap! Which one of you told Chuck the plan?
Once upon a time, years ago, it seemed that the only major fire for atheism burned from the anti-Christian work of Madelyn Murray O’Hair and the American Atheist organization, whose claim to fame was the banning of prayer and Bible reading in public schools in 1963.
Today many more antagonist groups and individuals to theism abound, and they are using every means possible for global proliferation â€“ from local government to the World Wide Web. Such secular progressives include the Institute for Humanist Studies, Secular Coalition of America, American Atheists, American Humanist Association, Internet Infidels, the Atheist Alliance International, Secular Student Alliance, Society for Humanistic Judaism, Freedom From Religion Foundation, Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, etc. Of course no list of atheistic advocates would be complete without mentioning the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, as well as the anti-God militancy of men like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris.
Though the U.S. Constitution outlaws religious discrimination, these organizations and individuals would love nothing more than to help society look with distain upon Christianity and, ultimately, make its components illegal. In fact, right now, they are coalescing and rallying at least 5 million of their troops to mount counter offensives to Christianity.
For that reason I believe theistic patriots need to be wise to atheists’ overt and covert schemes, exposing their agenda and fighting to lay waste to their plans.
Though movies and television would like us to believe otherwise, it was very rare when gunfights occurred with the two gunfighters squarely facing each other from a distance in a dusty street. This romanticized image of the Old West gunfight was born in the dime novels of the late 19th century and perpetuated in the film era, to such a point that this fictional version is the what our mindâ€™s eye quickly conjures up when we hear the word â€œ gunfight.â€ In actuality, the â€œrealâ€ gunfights of the Old West were rarely that â€œcivilized.â€
Everybody knows what happened to Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels but what about the lesser known actors such as Harrison Ford?
From English Russia:
From the end of 1980s a strange phenomena is happening in some Russian forests. People find strange, deep holes.
They appear in the dense forest, in the places you canâ€™t get on the car or truck to bring any device to drill the ground. There is no any soil that should be taken from such deep holes is found.
On this pictures people go down to one of such holes but it just finishes with nothing. There are no any reasonable ideas on how these holes appear and what they are being used for.
A list of 200 known Spammers:
80% of spam received by Internet users in North America and Europe can be traced via aliases and addresses, redirects, hosting locations of sites and domains, to a hard-core group of around 200 known spam operations (“spam gangs”), almost all of whom are listed in the ROKSO database. These spam operations consist of an estimated 500-600 professional spammers with ever-changing aliases and domains. The vast majority of those listed here operate illegally and move from network to network (and country to country) seeking out “spam-friendly” Internet Service Providers (“ISPs”) known for lax enforcing of anti-spam policies.
