Why increasingly "Perfect" weapons help perpetuate our wars and endanger our nations by L. C Douglas A Pryer.
A potential threat to all the national militaries and their respective populations , the Rise of hostile AI. This warning comes from the actual military itself on the potential of a SKYNET.
Makes you wonder why the Establishment is so very keen in getting automated warfare on the skies, robotics walking, rolling on the streets, mass automated surveillance and why they want to integrate themselves into the global "plastic" brain to immortalise themselves and be absorbed into their brand of beehive communism with transhumanist flourishes. It is about strategic position of troops for a coup.
Once the AI military assets are on the streets, it's a matter of retargeting them against the human populations instead of the enemy targets, they were supposed to be built against.
That assertion means that each of the national militaries must have an open door to hook up the subsystems into a higher gestalt Super AI Military Network of Networks, this presumptive secret could only be known only to certain key military and civilian personnel in the top brass to pull it off. Top level System Architects and Sys Admins.
As for the Ruling Elite, after they bite from the Forbidden Apple, they will surely die.
Satan will laugh all the way to Hell with them, prodded by his trident.

We are used to consider statistical numbers as cold stuff. These numbers here are not 'cold' and they also talk for themselves about the present situation of 'criminality' and violence in one of the most important countries in the world (USA).
Here in Brazil the privatization of penal system has already started, taking the North American system as model.
Becoming the incarceration mainly a 'private business', I think it is time to rethink the real objectives and results of such a system. Does that system aims to diminish the crime ocurrence or would it be good for such a system that crime statistics's trend would be kept unchanged?

Airport Madness. Security or Insanity? Excerpts by Roberto Preatoni
We have been taught to stand those airport security people's faces, screaming at you and staring at you with an evil eye whenever you forgot to take away the nail-clipper from your purse. Yes, nail-clippers, terrorists' most favorite hijacking tool. It's just plain ridiculous.
Today I had to stay 30 minutes in line before the x-ray checkpoint during which I took everything metallic I had off from myself. No belt, no rings, no watch, no coins, no wallet, NO FUCKING NOTHING. Still, the metal detector alarm bell rang. What is the point in having you stripped almost naked, if the alarm is set to ring anyway? Something done just to allow the fat man wearing the "airport security" uniform squeeze and carefully touch my nuts? Hey dude, what's your job? "I am squeezing nuts at pissed off airline passengers". Hilarious, this is the new way our today's politicians ensure jobs to jobless people.
High heels madam? The man before the x-ray machine asked to my girlfriend to remove her leather boots. Not happy, the person at the x-ray screening machine decided he didn't like my elder kid's bag and decided to have his Nintendo DS screened for explosive sampling. At that time, the "FLIGHT CLOSING" sign was already flashing on the departure screen beside our flight number. Finally we finalized our x-ray, nut squeezing, bomb checking scrutiny procedures and we attempted to rush toward our gate ... but no sirs. "Please madame, take off your boots, we have to run a random shoes check" a short man told to my girlfriend. "Again?!?, I just managed to put them on after the check you did 5 meters before..." she attempted to argue. No way, she was forced to take the boots off again... while the "FLIGHT CLOSING" light kept flashing.
But wait... There is more. The whole Preatoni's story is here.
The reason why I published Elaine Meinel Supkis' cartoon along with the above story:
The cartoon at the top of this story came to me while I was taking the train from Penn Station in NYC to Albany, New York. In the news, I learned that due to the US and Israel using assassin drones to fire rockets at Muslims we don't like, there will be retaliation. So the news media told me that they will be searching bags, etc, at Amtrak stations. So I went there expecting them to assault my laptop computer. Instead, I saw no activity of this sort at all. The police were clustered about the police station there, gossiping. No one paid the slightest attention to me or my laptop. Not one person passing in or out of the station was searched. I suppose they would search someone who would come in screaming, 'Allah akkabar!'
Now someone please help me with the following set of images: The first and the second photos are clearly photoshoped material. But I'm really confused about the third one. Do you know if it is a photoshoped picture? I'm asking in serious. I'm confused.
*Note: The second image was published here as a curiosity. The freaky way that someone represented Italy's prime minister as a victim of his rage called my attention and now (a few days ago) something very similar happened to him – everybody knows.
