    Mike, did you see the pictures of Butt Bomb II? THAT'S the result of a lot of money being spent, oh yeah. NOT. I'd love to see these clowns step up the crotch rubbing and start using high definition nude picture takers or that prison body scan device. Like that's gonna happen now.

    Of course. Entirely predictable.

    We ain't seen nothin' yet. The grotesque intrusions and civil liberties violations are only going to get worse. And they will continue to be touted as "necessary" by millions of pathetic people.

    I mean, my god, you can be arrested in Charlotte for carrying a goddamn purse. For carrying a magic marker (!!!!) or a bicycle helmet in a backpack. This stuff isn't out of dystopian novels anymore. It's happening right before our eyes, yet millions of clueless wonders out there still refuse to acknowledge it. And the more "educated" they are, the worse they are. They're more blind than anyone, because they're so sure they're so smart.

    Good grief. Horrible.

    And this:

    By the way, interesting site. If only its motto were possible. As the product of a classical education (and still a believer in and advocate of it), I've seen just as many authoritarians and torture apologists come out of said education as their opposites. If only the study of The Good, The Virtuous, and The Beautiful made for better citizens. If only.
