We tax, and regulate, and control access, to molotov cocktails? She said it so seriously.....LOL.

Molotov cocktails are on the list of "restricted weapons" - I would hope they are restricted from being sold or manufactured. But I don't know what the federal laws say. Maybe the federal govt taxes and regulates Molotov cocktails? That would be funny indeed.

Feb 2008: "The government’s centralized terrorist watch list passed the 900,000 name mark this month, according to the ACLU, which estimated the new total by relying on Congressional testimony from the fall that the sprawling list was growing by 20,000 names a month."

Iraqi mojo, are you now spying on your neighbors? I guess authoritarianism is your natural instinct.

Iraqi Mojo said...

Spying on my neighbors?

Aton said...

How do you think names are added to "The List".

Iraqi Mojo said...

No, I've never spied on my neighbors and I haven't nominated anybody for the list, except Habis al Urduni. LOL

"The Terrorist Screening Center runs the list, accepting nominations of new names from a large range of government agencies.

Agencies use the watch list to check persons seeking visas, traveler entering or leaving the country, domestic airline passengers and persons stopped by state, local or federal law enforcement.

Most of the positive matches on the list came from police routinely checking persons, such as speeding motorists, according to the Government Accountability Office’s report (.pdf). The number of individuals on the list is likely significantly less than 900,000, since the name count includes aliases."
