Some interesting news articles

A lot has been going on this week. Tempers are flaring. Countries are failing. Health care is going to pass one day and not pass the next. It's getting really nutty out there.

Apparently the pentagon shooter was a heavily armed, pot smoking conspiracy theorist. Am I the only one who thinks that they're trying to tie this whole incident to his "marijuana addiction"? I'd be willing to bet that if the government had just left him alone to smoke his pot in peace he probably wouldn't have snapped. No I don't smoke pot. I just don't care if other people do it. Considering that he couldn't hit crap he was probably stoned when he showed up to do the deed.

Speaking of conspiracy theorists, Ahmadinejad is officially a truther. This guy reminds me of some stupid little kid who likes to go throw rocks and poke sticks at tigers at the zoo. He really seems to want us to flatten his country.

Meanwhile students across the country have been protesting tuition hikes and budget cuts. I don't remember the tea parties being this violent and they're protesting things that are going to cost a HELL of a lot more than an education. The "necessity" of an education is way too overblown these days. If the public education system would focus more on education and less on indoctrination then I'd probably care more. Everyone should have a basic education. Once you have a foundation then you can learn as much as you want to whether you stay in school or not.

A 6 year old in Grand Rapids, Michigan was suspended for making a gun with his hand. Talk about over the top, out of control political correctness. Can we please stop with this nonsense?

We've finally learned a few things about Einstein 3, the system that the government is using to monitor the internet. Who needs privacy, anyway?

As for Eric Massa, the dem who's basically being pushed out of office, it's becoming pretty obvious that the dems were just looking for a reason to throw him under the bus because he's a no vote on health care. Sorry but an offcolor comment, no matter how stupid, isn't a good enough reason to push anyone out of office.

The MSM seems to be taking more and more shots at The Drudge Report lately. I'm in front of a computer quite a bit. Drudge and Google News is where I get most of my news. I find it funny that Drudge made his bones by reporting on an under reported story that the MSM tried to dismiss. Now they're still trying to convince people that he's not relevant.

This past week has been a dizzying week. The sort of week one would wrap their head in duct tape.

The world's on fire right now. The only way to stay ahead of the game is if we know what's going on.

I'm not sure what "MSM" you are referring to. I see the LWM, but I do not see an MSM.

Please explain.
