"This may surprise the folks back home, but the U.S. Army forces massing across the Iraqi border are largely unarmed."

"Even though all U.S. soldiers deployed to the six main Army camps in northern Kuwait must carry their rifles at all times -- even to the latrine in the middle of the night -- few are carrying any bullets."

"This is not an oversight, or a lame-brained cost-saving measure ordered by the Pentagon, or an indication that American military leaders believe they can take Iraq without firing a shot."

"Rather, it's an effort to stave off the sad inevitable: Once the Army starts issuing ammo en masse, soldiers will accidentally shoot themselves and each other."

"Federal agents routinely seize property allegedly used in the commission of a crime, anything from a drug dealer's car or speedboat to a hacker's computer."

"In a series of raids in recent weeks, the Justice Department has extended such grabs to property that might seem esoteric but worry civil libertarians -- Internet domain names."

"In one case, the government took over Web sites that it said peddled bongs, roach clips, rolling papers and other paraphernalia used in the consumption of illegal drugs."

They've considered weight, choke, barrel length, durability, gauge, caliber, and other factors—anything and everything to help you bring home the game. These are not the most expensive guns available ...or the most powerful, or even the newest. They are simply the tools that will get the job done. In a word, perfect."

"Socialization is not only a non-issue for homeschoolers, socialization at home is morally superior to government socialization. A child is the responsibility of their parents, and they require care, comfort, education and love, and all these things wrap into the issue of socialization. Furthermore, because of that, socialization is better done at home with parents who know them, love them and have their best interests at heart."
