To Catch a Bombmaker by Clay Dillow — March 12, 2016

In April 2009, an Iraqi refugee arrived in America ready to make a new life.  No one suspected he was an Al-Qaed operative. This is the story of a little-know FBI forensics lab and how it changed the war on terror.

The insurgent began with a cordless phone—one of the knockoffs of a Chinese-built Senao so popular in northern Iraq. Hunched over a worktable somewhere near the refinery town of Baiji, about 150 miles north of Baghdad, he methodically worked through a series of steps by now both familiar and frighteningly simple.

Donald J. Trump: Naive man. Do you think people can’t become… — December 9, 2015

Donald J. Trump: Naive man. Do you think people can’t become…

Radicalized in America?IMG_2735

 

Donald Trump is desperately trying to become the first man of “no color” to be ousted from a presidential primary.   What’s next Trump?   Concentration camps, door to door searches, sterilization of all Moslem women, the “Rape of Nanking” behavior against them?

Donald J. Trump’s plan to ban Moslem until our leaders know what is happening is scaring away the Statue of Liberty back to France.

Before you start your Moslem and Mexican Plans why not propose a National Identity card so that we can prove without having to search for a birth certificate, that we are citizens of the United States of America?

 

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day. — December 5, 2015

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day.

johnlennonLet me tell you a  fairy tale about a Pakistani girl who emigrated to Saudi Arabia with her father.  Years later she finds her Prince Charming, an American, marries him.  She gives birth to a child in the United States of America.  Let’s assume the Prince is the father and let’s not ask Maury Povich to do a paternity test on his show.  Couple lives happily ever after. The end.  No.  Not quite like that.  Six months later the baby is an orphan.  The couple, leave their six-month-old baby daughter with relatives, two hours later the couple is killed in a shootout with police SWAT team members.

End the Gun Epidemic in America

It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.

I’m in favor of not restricting responsible people from owning guns.  I have yet to see a gun kill anyone.  There is always a human behind the weapon who does the killing.  The gun is an instrument that needs to be issued with caution to people.  I believe we need a National Identity card where all information about an individual is available to the authorities who will decide if an individual is a candidate for gun ownership.  There should be a waiting period where the individual should attend mandatory safety classes.  If the individual fails to pass these classes  he loses the right to ownership and must forfeit all fees paid.

For all my friends who currently pay for “Medical” Insurance. If you’re over the hill and seeing the end in sight please take the pleasure to waste 5 minutes of your time while you smoke a stoogie and drink a beer. Read this article dated Tuesday, October 8, 2015 USA Today. The days will start to fly by so quickly, that all you will talk about is, the PAST. This is especially true of those who have lived with friends or family. Their children…flying the coop and starting to reproduce themselves. My only hope for the United States of America is that the Senators and Representatives start to live like the people of our great country. That they really start to represent the people before the “People” get tired of the style of comfort the “senators” currently enjoy. Will the people demand an end to Democracy?

How to navigate Medicare open enrollment season
Medicare beneficiaries need to review and change, if need be, their Medicare health plan.
USATODAY.COM
April might be the cruelest month, but Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 have to be the cruelest days of the year. That’s when Uncle Sam asks millions of Medicare beneficiaries to review and change, if need be, their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year.

Here’s what you need to know to survive this year’s season.
