    Senator Dick Durbin awarded the DimWit award for treason. June 2005 Dhimwit: Senator Dick Durbin dhim·wit (dmwt) - A non-Muslim member of a free society that abets the stated cause of Islamic domination with remarkable gullibility or guile. A dhimwit is always quick to extend a sympathy to the enemy that they are unwilling to allow their own defenders. One really wonders what goes through the head of a United States Senator when he compares American guards at Guantanamo Bay to "Nazis" and likens the prison itself (where inmates are fed better food than U.S. soldiers) to a "concentration camp."...

    French Appeasment Spreads H. Thomas Hayden November 23, 2005 Appeasement has become a national tradition with France and is beginning to spread its destabilizing and destructive tentacles to other parts of Europe. The Islamic-led riots in France may be confusing to some Americans but the learned say it has been a long time coming. In recent times appeasement silenced Europe when genocide was common in Kosovo. Even with TV news reports providing absolute proof of ongoing mass-murder, Europeans debated what they should do until the US took decisive action and came into Europe for the first time since World War...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 2.3.2005 | By Ray Long and Christi Parsons
    NRA dials up heat on gun ban in (Illinois) SPRINGFIELD -- Fresh off its success at poking holes in a Wilmette handgun ban, the National Rifle Association has launched a new legislative drive to dismantle strong gun prohibitions in Chicago and test Gov. Rod Blagojevich's wavering commitment to broader gun control. Taking direct aim at Mayor Richard Daley's hard-line stance against the proliferation of guns, the NRA package of state legislation would allow residents of Chicago and other communities that ban handgun ownership to legally keep the weapons in their homes for self-defense purposes. It also would hold Chicago and...

    Livermore lab laser hits new record Most powerful glass device moves closer to battlefield By Ian Hoffman, STAFF WRITER In less than an hour, technicians Balbir Bhachu and Kurt Cutter clamped thick slabs of exotic glass into a device they're building for the U.S. Army and blew away the world's record for power on a solid-state laser. The invisible beam on Monday measured 29.7 kilowatts, instantly topping a U.S. military goal of 25 kilowatts that defense giants Raytheon and Northrop Grumman are racing to achieve by the end of 2004. That's still a fraction of the power that military experts...

    Latest Scare Shows Need For Better Gun Program, Pilots Say U.S. pilot groups believe the latest security alert highlights the fact that not enough pilots have been trained to carry firearms in the cockpit, and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) needs to accelerate the training process. The Airline Pilots Security Alliance said only 500-1,000 pilots have been trained in the Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) program, which is "rife with roadblocks" that discourage pilots from signing up. TSA "needs to fix the [FFDO] program before the next orange alert," APSA said, including lifting the training rate, improving screening process, and...
