Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"Tien is speaking out because he believes the media are doing a poor job of reporting the threats that the chip can propose to individual rights, as well as the technical security weaknesses inherent in the Digital Angel technology delivery system."

"The media give an obligatory nod to civil liberties and privacy issues," Tien explains, "but the reports lack objective, educated analysis, resulting in them being 'one-sided.' There are few reporters interested in ... the real problems."

"Had you attended the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on homeland security the other day, you probably wouldn't have felt too secure."

"When Republican Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama expressed concern that about 150 workers at airports had been arrested for fraudulent possession of badges enabling them to gain entry to supposedly secure areas, Mr. Mineta said the arrests only demonstrated the effectiveness of "aggressive oversight" on the part of enforcement officials."

"In the state of California ... I wouldn't put [a] youngster in a public school," Dobson bluntly stated.

"His words sparked a campaign that reveals the extent of parental discontent with public schools."

NO - "This misinterprets the Constitution; the Second Amendment refers to militias, not individuals."

"The locker has long been viewed by students as their own two square feet of personal space in schools. But that may soon change. A new invention called the "smart locker" would allow principals across the country easy access to lockers and even monitor how often students use them."

"If a principal notices that a student is going in and out of his locker 18 times a day, that can raise suspicions," says Harry Popolow, senior project manager of Penco, a manufacturer of the smart lockers.

Bush Administration's Announcement Very Timely

"This announcement couldn't be more timely. Gun bans in Chicago, Washington DC, and other cities are leaving victims defenseless, and innocent people are dying as a result. ... Notice that a total gun ban disarmed the victim, but not the perpetrator. This is why the individual right to own guns is essential. Women such as Ronyale White of Chicago are especially at risk when they are prevented from defending their lives with firearms." -- Erich Pratt, GOA Director of Communications

"to his credit, Dr. Lane completely, and angrily, takes back his previous review. As a self-identified "card-carrying Liberal," who has spoken to Bellesiles by phone and in email, he says:

"I'm mad at the guy. He suckered me. It is entirely clear to me that he's made up a lot of these records. He's betrayed us [Liberals]. He's betrayed the cause." Dr. Lane adds: "It's 100 percent clear that the guy is a liar and a disgrace to my profession. He's breached that trust."

"Wouldn't it be great if the New Jersey delegation to Congress had at least one pro-gun vote? That could happen if Assemblyman Scott Garrett is successful in his race to replace retiring anti-self defense Rep. Marge Roukema. ... Garrett is the only candidate with a perfect pro-self defense voting record in Trenton. He also has an excellent chance to win..."

KABA NOTE: Home resident tackles burglar, dislocating his shoulder, and sits on him for 15 minutes waiting for police arrive.

Good thing the burglar wasn't armed or the homeowner would be dead.

Good thing the homeowner wasn't armed or the police would have arrested him as well, no doubt.

Is this any way to live?
