    "Camera license"

    Do YOU have a camera license? What with all them thar "terrorist photographers" running around...

    Big Brother, on the other hand, doesn't feel he needs any sort of license.

    No offense. But this FEAR propaganda is such bull shit. Anyone who thinks that this USA administration has told the truth, has sipped the Kool Aid. There is no terrorist group that is coming to America. There is no Bin Laden that is coming here. There were no Wepons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. Karl Rove and George Orwell are the winners. Democracy is lost.

    A Camera License, get real.

    Stupidity seems contagious. One of my friends is forever reminding me that "common sense isn't necessarily common".
    I wonder what license i would need for my 12x20? Something signed by the president or pm?

    The intervening woman was pretty funny: "because of the terrorism".

    Cops work for us, and that's what people forget. I think this was a pretty trite example (compared to something like Rodney King), but video-recording the cops is just one tool citizens have to make sure the police behave, and document when they don't.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    HA! Wait until they ask for your "camera license" when you're visiting the UK.

    Ah yes. Gray Hair. Lovely.

    Sometimes I wish I could get a refund for my law degree.
