Re: Observations of the Random sort

Here’s the thing I don’t get about AZ senate. How the fuck are the people who were right about Iraq the bad guys? It's mostly the fact that the pro-Iraq person is a legit feminist trailblazing airplane operating war hero, and this is Arizona. Half of Arizona's existence as a state has consisted of ...

I find it interesting that CNBC believes that their audience knows who Grover Norquist and Joe Arpaio are, but Ron Jeremy needs context.

Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

I think we might have finally reached pre-checkception. Over time I've noticed the lines getting longer and longer and flying today the TSA pre-check line was longer than the regular line. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted and at least you avoid the porno-scanner. Longer, but faster #twss ?

I'm trying to figure out how the NSA would have the bureaucratic wherewithal to be paying attention to the conversations by mid level officials of a nominally allied country about a fairly random dude who is a US resident but not citizen.
