This doesn’t strike me as a particularly brilliant terrorist. Fowl play, certainly, but still not very bright.

Conn. police find pipe bomb stuffed inside chicken

SIMSBURY, Conn. – Authorities in Connecticut are wondering who stuffed a raw roasting chicken with a pipe bomb and left it on a roadside.

Simsbury police Capt. Matthew Catania says a motorist noticed the chicken Friday morning. He says the bomb was large enough to harm a person if it went off.

The road was closed while the Hartford Police Department’s bomb squad came and blew up the chicken.

Nobody was injured. No arrests had been made Monday night.

Why’d they blow up the chicken? It was the pipe bomb that was dangerous. I mean, sans pipe bomb, I have never heard of a chicken spontaneously exploding. Helloooooo?

And now for something that is going to…

PISS YOU OFF.

On NPR (I listen to know mine enemy) I caught a blurblet from an interviewee talking about the issues with ISP’s blocking child pornography. Essentially what he said was:

  1. US ISP’s have not been blocking sites in say, Russia. I didn’t hear enough to know if that was an example or a true problem area
  2. In order to force them to do so will likely become a Supreme Court issue – because – “It’s a Freedom of Speech” issue (WTF???)
  3. France has beat us to the punch in telling ISP’s to block this vile filth. Got that? FRANCE beat us in “doing the right thing”. I’m ashamed.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE????

This isn’t about free speech! It’s about enforcing laws in trafficking utter shit. In case anyone forgot (and sometimes I think most everyone has) “Freedom of Speech” meant freedom of POLITICAL SPEECH. It was meant so you would be able to speak freely for or against your government without fear of reprisals from your government, which was a big problem in England back then and still is in a lot of places. It was and is critical to the right of self-determination in a Representative Republic (remember, we’re not a democracy and never were – go look it up).

Pictures in this context are not “free speech”. Smut involving small innocent children is an atrocity and there ought not be a single soul that could argue for not blocking it.

I’m so irritated by those who twist the law to the utter last letter to get away with things that were clearly never intended in the first place. ARRRRRGH!
