Bend over, grab your ankles, turn your head and cough, and pee in the cup or we cannot let you on the bus… this is going to get frigging ridiculous, and real quickly.

Counter-terrorism experts have renewed calls to tighten security on America’s mass transit lines following two would-be terrorists’ foiled plot to blow up a Toronto passenger train.
The alleged plan to attack Canada’s transit system has shed light on the vulnerabilities that still exist in America’s commuter system and the challenges involved in keeping it safe for travelers.
“The millions of Americans who take public transportation need to be assured that everything possible is being done to ensure their security and safety,” American Public Transportation Association President and CEO Michael Melaniphy told FoxNews.com on Monday, adding that federal funding should be increased.
… “This country has to change its outlook on day-to-day life,” he said. “We can’t let out guard down.”
Yet one more reason that Westchester County, New York, should secede along with all 5 boroughs of NYC plus Long Island, float into the Atlantic Ocean, and tectonically merge with France or some other Euro-socialist shit hole.

A veterans organization in a New York town is fighting for its right to fly a patriotic flag after the city council refused to let the group display the flag, calling it a symbol of the Tea Party with right-wing connotations.
The United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association replaced a tattered American flag at the New Rochelle Armory, flying the Gadsden flag underneath it. The bright yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” flag has been used by the Navy and Marine Corps since 1775. Continue reading →
Before Adam Lanza carried out the mass shooting at Newtown Elementary School three months ago, he had conducted research on several mass murderers, The Hartford Courant reports today.
Citing sources close to the investigation, the newspapaper reports that articles and documents related to other mass murders were found in one of two bedrooms Lanza used in the house he shared with his mother, Nancy.
Last month, the Courant reported that police investigators found several articles about Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man convicted of the July 2011 shooting and bombing attack in Norway that killed 77 people, in Lanza’s bedroom.
State police have periodically been providing updates to victims’ families, Sandy Hook teachers and first responders. Last week, they shared the theory that Lanza was trying to outdo other killers, according the Courant sources.
Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky said he hopes the final report on the massacre will be completed by the end of June.
Update 3:00 pm: A source told the Stamford Advocate that state police discovered that Lanza had collected information on ”virtually every mass murder” in the U.S. and abroad, and had exhibited a particular interest in an October 2006 shooting at an Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, Penn. that killed five school girls and the gunman. “There was a lot of material on the Amish case,” the source told the paper. The source also said investigators were able to track some of Lanza’s movements prior to the shooting through cell phone technology, noting that he made a number of trips to the Danbury Fair mall in April and May. ”For someone who almost never left his house, it was really out of character,” the source said.

Even the MSM whores are having a tough time not reporting on this now, but the minimizing contortions they take in doing so are worth watching, i.e.
Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.
In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the “big fish.” But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called “gunwalking,” and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called “Demand Letter 3”. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information. via CBS News Investigates – CBS News.
