Norway Massacre

It will be interesting to see how Norway deals with this crime. Will they change any of their laws or policies? If this had happened in the US, the answer would be simple. Arm the kids. There is no problem that can't be cured with more guns. If the kids at this camp had been armed this would not have happened. Patrons in bars in some states can now carry weapons, has anyone ever heard of someone having too much to drink and getting into a gun battle. OK , bad example.

Constitutional Republic Or Fascist Oligarchy

Under the radar

Two recent articles in the Seattle Times might raise some concern if you connect the dots. The first was a article about how big investors are buying up farm land. This has driven up the value in some areas, more than threefold in the last ten years. When big money interests, that have control of both the price of commodities (wall street) and the production of those same commodities (farms), the price of food will skyrocket. No good will come from this.
