4th Amendment Over: Public Buses Adding Microphones To Record Conversations

 Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that would give them the ability to record and store private conversations, according to documents obtained by a news outlet.

The systems are being installed in San Francisco, Baltimore, and other cities with funding from the Department of Homeland Security in some cases, according to the Daily, which obtained copies of contracts, procurement requests, specs and other documents.

The systems use cables or WiFi to pair audio conversations with camera images in order to produce synchronous recordings. Audio and video can be monitored in real-time.

Right.  Because the greatest threat to the safety the citizens of the United States is some blue-collar, transit-dependent schlub trying to get by in the Obama economy, bitching about his life while riding the bus.  As if Mahmoud and Muhammed and all the other good little jihadis are planning the world takeover by islam in their secret planning sessions while riding the Local.  Have these bureaucrats even ridden the bus lately?  Don’t they know that nobody talks to anybody else on the bus?  Sheesh.  And if some islamic wackjob IS plotting something, who’s going to translate the recorded conversations from Farsi?

My suggestion?  Everyone riding the bus should get on, look up at the camera, flip the bird, and say “Fuck Homeland Security.”  Just like George Carlin talked about in the ’70s when he thought the FBI was tapping his phone.  He would answer the phone: “Fuck Hoover.  Hello?”

Can Democrats be this stupid? Of course they can.

Russian ships displayed at DNC tribute to vets

On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.

But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.

Gee, I guess to the Democrat staffers in charge of A/V production, a ship is a ship is a ship.  What’s the diff?  Only the radars, the hulls, and the flags flying at their sterns.  Who cares?  They support the troops, doncha know.  Except when they don’t.

The law of unintended stupidity

Actually, the Law of Unintended Consequences, but when talking about Congress, same diff.

Dodd-Frank Already Having Unintended Consequences? You Don’t Say!

Parts of the bond market are shutting down because the three big ratings agencies will not allow their ratings to be used by their clients, pending the agencies’ determination of what their legal liabilities will be under the Dodd-Frank financial reform law just signed by the Obaminator.  Without ratings included in their documentation, some bonds involving assets such as mortgages, auto loans, student loans and credit cards cannot legally be sold.

Black Hole Stupid

Just how stupid can you be and still be a member of Congress?

Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

(h/t Lemur King)

Gee, Nancy, if what you say is true, then why don’t we simply fire EVERYBODY in the whole country, give them all unemployment benefits, and then spend our way out of this financial morass?

How stupid is this?  As stupid as a cup of dirt?  My vaunted powers of expression have deserted me.  I must defer to this description of stupid that I found somewhere back sometime ago on some blog, I think:

Annie Potts,” or whatever her real name is, broke all known measurements for stupidity. It was unabashed stupidity. Dumber than grandpa’s claw hammer stupid. Stupid to the bone stupid. Blazing hot mid-day summer sun in Qatar stupid. So stupid it goes past mushrooms on the scale of stupid. It is stupid collapsed on itself – black hole stupid. The event horizon of her stupidity prevents so much as the beginnings of an idea or a rational thought to penetrate the singularity of stupid perched on the top of her emaciated torso. Her grasping to form an idea was some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Pulsar stupid, spinning like an insane dervish spewing more stupidity in one pulse than an entire galaxy of stupid, stupid. She emitted more pure stupidity per second than Congress emits in a year. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by rational thought as to be beyond the ability of intelligent beings to classify it’s stupidity.”

I think I got that from Boortz.


Nobody can be this stupid. CORRECTION: Democrats ARE this stupid.

When questioning Admiral Robert Willard about the Navy’s plan to relocate 8,000 personnel to the island of Guam, a U.S. possession, the Democrat Representative from Georgia expressed concern that the island “would tip over and capsize.”

The stupidosity starts about 1:20 in.  Honestly, we should be just fine entrusting our health care to guys so smart they make the brainiac aliens from Star Trek seem stupid:

Yes, people.  Democrats ARE this stupid.  This guy shouldn’t even be allowed to VOTE, much less exercise power.  I wish Admiral Willard had just stood up and shouted: “I can’t believe I’m testifying before someone with the I.Q. of lard!”
