rope saves Mohammar Allawi's brother

Tolerance mania occurred
when the government seized a ship over a couple joints.

The government had seized the ship from itself.

The Drug War. The Drug War. The Drug War. The Drug War. The Drug War.

Hear it enough times and you believe it is a national security problem.

Rather than an entirely domestic consumer problem.

Yes, the drugs – a HUGE amount of drugs – cross our national borders. But it
is being PULLED in, a completely different situation than Military defense
of our borders against a FOREIGN enemy.

I wonder how it all gets into the country. It’s as if it has its own special
unmonitored border crossing, where it can drive truck after truck through.

And what happens when you bang the drum of hysteria long enough?

Bizarre distortions in our social fabric:
widespread fear, loathing and suspicion.

And: censorship.

Tom Petty wins MTV’s highest video award, but they always censored the
word ‘joint’ in the video! MTV, the spirit of Rock’N'Roll…not.

Maybe they’re just doing what they can: they played the word BACKWORDS
in the video…a British band was on trial in the U.S. a few years ago
charged with putting backward-playing lyrics on their album (acquitted).

But it’s okay if Jay Leno shows a Clinton look-alike smoking a bong.

No, that’s the reason they are giving for why U.S. companies can’t EXPORT
products, such as web browsers, outside U.S. territory, without compromising
it with Government "Key Recovery"; i.e. made stupider and breakable.

Why such an indirect control on what they claim is a domestic problem?

Because that is how ‘The Creeping Police State’ works.

Slowly, bit-by-bit.

Slowly, State-by-State everyone in the U.S. is being fingerprinted.

The FBI is now advocating biometric capture of all newborns too.

This is an interesting manifesto, please take the time to read it.

Cryptography can be used to keep private: Internet traffic, such as email,
and telephone conversations (PGP phone). A version of PGP phone that looks
and works like a normal telephone — but can’t be spied upon — would
eventually become wide-spread.

It begins to change the mind-set that the Police State is inevitable.

SIGINT (signal intelligence) people, have started telling the story about

ASTRO: A CCD for a C8

Any suggestion for a CCD camera to be used on a Celestron C8 using the
Fastar or Hyperstar lens?

Most CCD cameras seem to be "physically" too big for this. Seems like
they would block most of the corrector with the CCD body. Starlight
Xpress cameras look small enough. The SBIG STV 237 is no longer
