NOW do you think it might not be a bad idea to START FUCKING PACKING HEAT?!?!?!!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Got a problem with MY protest sign?! I'm sorry, go fuck yourself. Oh, you wanna get up in my face?! BOOM PING PING...next?!
The media firestorm that resulted from NPR’s decision to fire Juan Williams for making a bigoted remark about Muslims included rhetorical bombs lobbed from Williams’ cohorts at Fox News. As Media Matters noted, conservatives have used Williams’ firing as an excuse to continue their war on NPR and to call for its defunding. “Juan Williams was put up against a wall and NPR shot him,” Glenn Beck claimed, who also said that “voices are being silenced” by “jack-booted thugs.” Many Fox Newsers even tried to explain NPR’s decision as some sort of George Soros-linked conspiracy. Today, the Washington Post reports NPR received a bomb threat today, and while the threat didn’t specifically cite the Williams saga, NPR officials said the “tone” suggested it was involved:
NPR received a bomb threat Monday, five days after its decision to fire news analyst Juan Williams sparked a hugely negative reaction.
Sources at the news organization said the threat was received via U.S. mail and was immediately turned over to local police and the FBI. The organization did not publicly disclose the threat or release details, on the advice of law enforcement officials.
The letter didn’t reference the Williams firing specifically, but people at NPR, who spoke about it on the condition of anonymity, said the timing and tone suggested it was sent after Williams’s widely publicized termination.
NPR warned its employees this week to be extra cautious, citing a general “security threat” in a staff memo. “We’re being more aware of who’s entering the building” and generally being more vigilant,” an NPR spokesperson said.

Patient has prostate removed in world's first all-robotic surgery
By Claire Bates
Last updated at 11:51 AM on 20th October 2010
In a world first medics at Montreal General Hospital used an anesthesia robot, nicknamed McSleepy, to put the patient under. They then employed the DaVinci surgical robot to remotely perform the delicate operation.
Operating room of the future: Doctors performed a prostatectomy using only robots
Specialists at the McGill University Health Centre at the hospital said the all-robotic surgery could deliver the most modern and accurate patient care.
Dr A Aprikian from MUHC, said: 'The DaVinci allows us to work from a workstation operating surgical instruments with delicate movements of our fingers with a precision that cannot be provided by humans alone.'
He and his team of surgeons operated the robotic arms that can rotate 360 degrees from a dedicated workstation via video control with 3D high definition image quality.
They removed part of the patient's prostate gland, which sits at the neck of the urethra and produces the fluid part of semen.
The hospital have been using McSleepy since 2008, and were the first in the world to perform surgery using a totally automated system to knock out patients.
It is a software system that directs infusion pumps in a patient's vein to release specifically timed and measured doses of drugs that induce sleepiness, control pain and relax muscles during an operation.
The computerised system also provides continuous feedback on how the patient is responding to the drugs as surgery progresses, from brainwave patterns and muscle contractions to heart rate and blood pressure readings.
Dr Aprikian conducts tricky surgery remotely using da Vinci. It allows surgeons to perform with far greater precision
DaVinci is a far newer addition and was only put to work this summer but this was the first time the two were combined.
Dr Aprikian said McSleepy helped to create the perfect conditions needed for robotic surgery.
He said: 'Automated anesthesia delivery via McSleepy guarantees the same high quality of care every time it is used, independent from the subjective level of expertise.'
His colleague Dr Thomas Hemmerling said they were still improving the robotic approach. Just last month, researcher Linda van den Bedem from the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven unveiled a robot that used 'force feedback' to allow the surgeon to feel what he or she wa doing.
But Dr Hemmerling said:'Robots in medicine can provide health care of higher safety and precision, thus ultimately improving outcomes.'
The McSleepy software administers the anaesthetic and monitors the patient
However Dr Hemmerling was quick to dismiss the idea that machines would one day rule in hospitals.
'Robots will not replace doctors but help them to perform to the highest standards,' he said.
I'm rereading the masterpiece "The Monkey Wrench Gang" by the late great philosopher Edward Abbey, and if you haven't, do so! Read it the first time for the fuck of it, the next time take notes...mu ha ha!!! EARTH FIRST!!!

Professors Michael Zimmerman and Rosalie David in England have an intriguing suggestion in their recent study of mummies: cancer may be a largely man-made disease. The study found no evidence of the disease in ancient corpses — leading to the theory that cancer may be the result of diet, pollution, and other man-made causes such as early use of snuff.
The researchers examined tissue from hundreds of Egyptian mummies and found only one case with cancer traces. Likewise, an earlier study of thousands of Neanderthal bones produced only one sample with possible cancer traces.

Given JUST these basic facts to a 3 year old, and even THEY will come to the LOGICAL conclusion that THIS PLANET HAS BEEN VISITED BY ALIENS FOR QUITE A LONG TIME!!!
Need I cite the numerous examples of cave drawing of what a CLEARLY flying saucers!!!!!!
The comet in the 1940's (or whenever!) that broke up in the atmosphere, then the next day flu outbreaks all over the world...
It's so RETARDED when people say "There's NO WAY life can exist elsewhere, we're it, the end!"
How about the UFOs & the shut downs of nuke launching deals?! Well, it's NOTHING new. What is new is that more and more people are saying to hell with it and going public. It's shameful and disgraceful that most governments on this planet can't just admit what most everyone already know: WE ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS UNIVERSE! The truth is out there...
