Hard to believe this will aid in the recovery of the Big Three. Especially now that consumers are returning to massive vehicles with lower gas prices. Does this order only lead to another automaker bailout?

Perhaps... but we conduct our operations from a secured location at the Alpha Site, which is through the Stargate and requires a ZPM to power up the ninth chevron.

What's that? You don't have a ZPM? Oh, well that's a real pity...

TO: "hiberniantears" and the rest of the cultists in and out of government:

Your lame disinfo betrays your intent.

The good people on the inside are on to you.

Don't sweat it scrivener50. All you need is a good tin foil hat to block the radiation.

• As Great a Threat to Humanity as Nuclear Weapons

The controversy over former Raytheon executive William Lynn's nomination as deputy defense secretary has yet to center on what should be the main objection...

...the fact that his former employer is a major producer of RADIATION WEAPONRY (a/k/a "directed energy weapons") capable of inflicting silent, potentially lethal injury and of inducing illnesses and ailments ranging from aneurysms, strokes and heart attacks to eye/vision damage and cancer.

This radiation weaponry has been, and continues to be, widely deployed among units of the military, intelligence and law enforcement, on the federal and local levels.

This weaponry arguably poses a GREATER risk to humanity than nuclear weapons, since their wide availability virtually guarantees that they will be misused.

And there is evidence that such misuse already is happening -- perhaps with the knowledge of some government officials.

If Lynn makes it to the hearings stage, Congress should question him closely on the deployment of radiation weaponry among law enforcement agencies that deal with the general public.

Here is some source material:
