The Bengazi business shows how far they've come by having an Illumnatus stooge in the White House.
So Reagan should have been impeached over the far worse Beirut barracks bombing, right?

The point is that we don't live in the days of parchment, powdered wigs, and pantaloons anymore. We have 21st century problems. The warrant was a product when lynchings were common. The internet is the street, and plain-clothes cops have always been on streets.

Email is more like a letter sent through the postal service than a bulletin posted in a public square. You might have a point if you were talking about, say, a public website, Tweet, or Facebook profile.

Re: New Senate Bill gives warrantless e-mail searches to 22 agencies

I don't like th e-mail going outside law-enforcement to a lot of agencies...still, a terror tactic is to not send e-mail at all, just all use the same account.

The Israeli model needs to be adopted:

Let's bring back Letters of Marque, that will up the ante on those terrorist supporting states.

Pirate hunting cruises from Dubai tour company

excerpt:

Like any proper cruise, you can choose a type of stateroom with offers ranging from the humble sounding "standard inside" to the opulent "Hemingway suite." The similarities to any other cruise end abruptly when you begin assembling your personal armory. With offerings such as the predictably yielding "bazooka package" and a "mercenary madness" kit, you can personalize your weapons cache almost endlessly. The "mercenary madness" package includes rental of a M107 .50 caliber sniper rifle, an AR 15 assault rifle, and an 18kt gold plated Desert Eagle pistol. Bow and arrows are also available for purists. Flamethrowers can be rented as well, though require a 3 day licensing course prior to departure.

Day 4 - Mogadishu tank tour Cool idea, but that really was the shark jumping part.

Well, it's always good for sociopaths and serial killers to spend their energy on someone outside of the United States, I suppose. Although it arguably could violate the Neutrality Act if an American participated.

The date of the article is April 1... which isn't to say I don't love the idea.
