The G-8 "feel good" summit is at Camp David today, near Thurmont, Maryland. My wife works down that way and she just called and said that the Secret Service/DHS/TSA are pulling ALL trucks off Route 15 (a MAJOR commercial highway between Harrisburg and Frederick) for extensive searches and driver interrogations.

One of her co-workers' husbands drives a propane truck for a living and got treated like a terrorist last night.

This is going to be a mess and a half today!

They will set the military loose on Chicago, but won’t even post them on our border.

“Announcing the death of the “Posse Comitatus Act”


Exactly my first thought but I’ll admit to not being fully informed. Is this legal?

Another domino in the continuing Fall of The American Republic? End of The Posse Commitatus Act? Another “Brick In The Wall”?

Questions, questions, questions...

Nothing to worry about. The drones are watching over us. We are comfortably wrapped in our illusion of safety.

I’m still trying to figure-out why they’re wasting money on fighter planes. A show of strength, maybe?

No kidding. Fighter planes are passe. It’s kind of a Dustin Hoffman moment here - ‘One word: drones...’
