I t Was Only A Mater Of Time

Until this shit started. You'll see it in the big cities first. I'm sure it'll take several decades, but it will spread. The mere fact that it is even being brought up is an ominous omen of the future.

Actually I'm surprised that Boston doesn't already use AR's. I'm guessing that they were still only using/issuing shotguns, SMG's and maybe some Mini-14's during the Tsaranev incident that the BPD has now asked to be upgraded.

Only in modern day "progressive" America could you see this.

Another Win For Gun Owners!

The most amazing thing about this is that the decision was made by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. These are the most left-wing wing-nuts in the country.
On the negative side though, they're also the court with the most reversed decisions in the country. The question is does San Diego County really want to appeal? Because an appeal means going before the Supreme Court.
If SCOTUS rules to support the 9th 's decision, that opens up a whole can of worms for any jurisdiction that says "self defense" is not a legitimate reason to be issued a gun permit.

Interesting times people, interesting times.

Shale Oil And The U.S. Econmy

CNAS is a is a Think Tank that advises the Govt. on security issues facing the U.S. The scope of their recommendations are pretty broad. They recently published a paper on Shale Oil production in the U.S. While States like New York continue to moan about the dangers of fracking, other states are realizing major economic boons. As well this paragraph from the CNAS report is quite telling:

"The unconventional boom has also given the U.S.
refined-product sector a competitive global edge,
particularly over Europe. Shale oil produces plentiful
light grades of oil, which, when refined, deliver
greater gasoline and diesel supplies than do heavier
grades of crude. The new shale oil produced in the
United States is refined into more gasoline and
diesel at home, which reduces the need to import
these products from abroad. Also, U.S. refineries
configured to handle heavier, imported crude from
Canada, Mexico and Venezuela are sending more
of their refined products abroad because domestic
refined product needs are increasingly met by oil
drilled and refined at home. After more than 60
years as a net importer, the United States became
a net exporter of refined products in 2011.."

Just When You Thought Google Glass Couldn't Get Creepier: New App Allows Strangers to ID You Just by Looking at You
by John Boone Tue., Feb. 4, 2014 4:27 PM PST

Google Glass/Facebook

Have you ever seen someone wearing Google Glass out at the bar? Like a real person at a real bar actually wearing Google Glass? If so, you know how absolutely ridiculous they look, which may be the only factor we have that will stop this:
A new app will allow total strangers to ID you and pull up all your information, just by looking at you and scanning your face with their Google Glass. The app is called NameTag and it sounds CREEPY.
The "real-time facial recognition" software "can detect a face using the Google Glass camera, send it wirelessly to a server, compare it to millions of records, and in seconds return a match complete with a name, additional photos and social media profiles."
The information listed could include your name, occupation, any social media profiles you have set up and whether or not you have a criminal record ("CRIMINAL HISTORY FOUND" pops up in bright red letters according to the demo).


And NameTag may have already added you to their database.
Two million entries have already been uploaded to FacialNetwork.com. Once the app officially goes live, you can sign up for NameTag and opt-out, instead of the alternative: Having to opt-in to allow them to show your information.
How is that OK?
"It's not about invading anyone's privacy," one NameTag's creators claimed (via Independent). "It's about connecting people that want to be connected. We will even allow users to have one profile that is seen during business hours and another that is seen in social situations. NameTag can make the big, anonymous world we live in as friendly as a small town."

It may not be about invading anyone's privacy, but that sounds like what it does. And forcing people to opt-out if they want to maintain their privacy is wrong (we would go so far as to say it should be illegal). But the purported benefits of the app are almost even worse:
They continue, "It's much easier to meet interesting new people when we can simply look at someone, see their Facebook, review their LinkedIn page or maybe even see their dating site profile. Often we were interacting with people blindly or not interacting at all. NameTag on Google Glass can change all that."
It's enough to make you root for that app that lets you film Google Glass porn, if you had to pick one. Luckily, Google has banned facial-recognition software from the Glass—for now.
