  • CHEMICAL SECURITY – Viewpoint: Bangor Daily News – Bangor, ME, US – June 14, 2006

Thousands of facilities across the country make or use large quantities of hazardous chemicals. Nearly five years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, there are no federal rules or security standards for these manufacturing companies, water-treatment plants and refineries.

What triggered the outrage was my characterization of the court order prohibiting a planned prayer at the high school graduation in Russell Springs, Ky. What I described as "school-sponsored prayer" (scheduled to be given by the student chaplain elected by the seniors), many of my readers viewed as the "right of the majority" to have whatever prayer they choose at commencement.

The title abu-Hamza now holds, head of Al Qaeda in Iraq, doesn't fit on a desk nameplate, but you can bet it will soon be scrawled on a 500-pound bomb Oklahomans are assembling down in McAlester.

All I can think is that Hamza must have stepped out of the room and the other terrorists voted him in real quick.

The amendment, which also would have prohibited broadband providers from establishing paid tiers of service and engaging in discriminatory practices, was apparently never intended to be taken seriously (the House declined to even take it up as it embarked on the task of voting on the Communications, Opportunity Promotion and Enhancement Act, which it approved, 321 to 101). Rather, it was designed to illustrate how government-mandated net neutrality laws (which, ironically, Rep. Gonzalez opposes) will pave the way for endlessly increasing regulation of the Internet – possibly to the point where the government would control its very content.

NATIONAL BLOG WATCH:

America's journalistic culture would be so much stronger if reporters and editors would accept one simple fact. The biggest wackos at Daily Kos and Free Republic share something very important in common: They want America to be a better place.

Stop this meme – InOpinion Blog

A terrorism expert informed the U.S. Senate today that the threat from home grown al Qaeda terror cells is real. How is it that al Qaeda can recruit terrorists in the U.S.? The internet.
