We should bring our own lunch! We should bring our own lunch!"

Federal officials on Tuesday urged calm in the wake of the discovery of iodine-131, which blew across the Pacific Ocean from the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant, in rainwater.The tests that detected the radioactive material were conducted by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and by nuclear power plant operators in Pennsylvania.
Rolling Stone | It's just past 9 a.m. when Alex Jones pulls his Dodge Charger into a desolate parking lot in Austin. From the outside, the squat, single-story office complex that Jones calls his "command center" resembles a moon base surrounded by fields of dying grass. But inside, blinking banks of high-tech recording gear fill the studio where he broadcasts The Alex Jones Show, a daily talk show that airs on 63 stations nationwide. Jones draws a bigger audience online than Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck combined — and his conspiracy-laced rants make the two hosts sound like tea-sipping NPR hosts on Zoloft.
Wake the Church | If you are like me, you have heard the words God Bless America many times. It seems that Americans regardless of their status, apparently want God's blessings on this nation. I do not doubt the sincerity of the desire for His blessings. But how realistic is it to expect God to bless America? After all has not America virtually banned God, His laws, and His Word from almost all of its institutions, even from many of its churches? Worship of false gods, murder, lying, stealing and every other sin are at an all time high in America, and repentance at this time seems not to be in the heart of most Americans, even those who call on the name of the Lord.

Food For Thinkers | This is a rehash of a piece I wrote in 2004 - www.thefot.us/disarm.html. I am reworking it because of the calls for additional gun control after the tragic shootings in Tucson on Saturday. I have heard a lot of people say something along these lines: “I believe people should be allowed to own guns. But there HAS to be SOME control. I mean, there are so many crazy people out there. You can’t let just ANYONE have a gun.”
CBS | President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said here today. It's "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.
Politico | In the last quarter of 2010, we heard plenty of horror stories about folks being "groped" as they went through airport security (remember the "don't touch my junk" guy?).
Life Site News | Planned Parenthood officials, in a new interview, have confirmed a LifeNews.com report issued Tuesday about a new mandate for its affiliates to operate at least one abortion center. The report focused on the Corpus Christie, Texas based Planned Parenthood of South Texas affiliate that announced it is resigning its status as a network of clinics aligned with Planned Parenthood because of the new abortion mandate.
FOX Nation | Michael Moore asks Rachel Madow if it is okay to say the word Christian on their network.
Alternet | The FBI caught another homegrown terrorist this week, except like many recent plots the agency has “uncovered,” the attack was a plant, a plan concocted by the FBI itself. It’s the latest in a growing number of terrorism plots that the FBI stirs up by infiltrating communities and helping to devise attack plans. The practice raises serious questions about the government’s implementation of it’s ongoing war on terror.

Infowars.com | Newly obtained video that was reluctantly released by NIST after a lawsuit by the International Center for 9/11 Studies shows two firefighters on 9/11 discussing how secondary explosions occurred immediately before the collapse of the twin towers, providing damning new evidence that explosive devices were used to bring down the buildings.
