  1. Eh

    You are aware that you can name your local wifi network anything you wish?

    And that naming it that is a joke?

    I heard of this type thing a good few years ago, and gave thought to naming my local wifi signal that.

  2. Phantom he’s not “aware” of anything.

    I will ask though how can someone that complains about wasting space on the blog justify this post?

    just kidding 🙂

  3. But what are the chances boys?

    Either the feds really are outside, or the federal secret police is so ubiquitous in the consciousness that people are renaming their networks to reflect the reality of state surveillance.

    Neither looks good.

  4. whats the old saying….

    “Just because I’m Paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get me”

    there aren’t any people like that on here Phantom 😉

  5. Uh-oh.

    The FBI is instructing local police departments and “communities against terrorism” (eh? – PM) to consider anyone who harbors “conspiracy theories” about 9/11 to be a potential terrorist, in a circular released to local police departments.

    The circular thus adds 9/11 official story skeptics to a growing list of targets described by federal law enforcement to be security threats, such as those who express “libertarian philosophies,” “Second Amendment-oriented views,” interest in “self-sufficiency,” “fears of Big Brother or big government,” and “Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties.”

    Banish those unapproved thoughts, citizens! Block your ears to the suspicious ones. Join your local “community against terrorism” and do not question what you are told.

    Citizens are reminded that they live in the Land of the Free.

  6. For some of Conspiracy Theories, including Trutherism, it may be better to alert the men in the white coats.

  7. Troll –

    Have you ever seen the film ‘Good Bye Lenin!‘? It’s very good. Try to catch it if you have some spare time this weekend.

    What do you think of the SWAT gang at the Naval Yard being ordered to stand down?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/24153252
    “One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday’s shooting in Washington DC was ordered to stand down by superiors, the BBC can reveal.

    A tactical response team of the Capitol Police, a force that guards the US Capitol complex, was told to leave the scene by a supervisor instead of aiding municipal officers.”

    Very dodgy stuff, I reckon.

  8. yeah I heard that story, haven’t given the whole navy yard story much attention. It was a tragedy of a broken mind.

    I’ll look for that movie.

  9. Here’s some of President Putin’s open-forum discussion

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24170137#story_continues_2

    The annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club of Russian specialists with President Vladimir Putin is usually held behind closed doors. This year, to mark the 10th anniversary, it was a show specially tailored for television.

    Centre stage was Mr Putin, flanked by slightly awkward looking dignitaries from Germany, France, Italy and the United States.

    Facing them was a crowd of foreign guests, plus several rows of Russians, including an Orthodox priest in flowing robes, two white-turbaned Russian Muslim spiritual leaders, and a rumbustious handful of Russian opposition leaders – most of whom got a chance to put a question to Mr Putin.

    – And in an opening speech devoted to Russian values, he castigated the West for losing touch with its Christian roots when it came to gender questions.

    Mr Putin said that “one-gender families” and exaggerated political correctness were leading countries into degradation and a deepening moral crisis.

    – But the Russian leader did not try to hide his disdain for sexual minorities. Europeans, he continued, were suffering from a falling birth rate and could be in danger of dying out if they did not do something about it.

    – He even returned to the subject to make a joke of what he perceived as Western Europe’s distorted attitude to gender issues. Recalling his friendship with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, he noted that Mr Berlusconi was now on trial for living with women.

    “But if he’d been living with men, as a homosexual, no-one would have dared lay a finger on him,” Mr Putin said.

    The Russians in the auditorium erupted into roars of laughter. On the panel next to a grinning Mr Putin, his European guests looked bemused and uncomfortable.

    That is a declaration of war on the multi-culti ‘west’.

  10. It is the equivalent of calling a tobacco store and asking ” if they have Prince Albert in a can ”

    Someone just fell for it.

  11. It’s a good prank that’s been going round for a while.

    If the FBI did do this it would be like wearing t-shirets that say “FBI Undercover”.
