Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:
Seriously? Obama met a robot in Japan… And he bowed to it. He also admitted to being frightened by it. In other news: Vladimir Putin has announced a new Russian Robotics division. (Breitbart.com)
Iran gets a seat on the UN women’s rights council… Which seems stupid. I mean, the Danish PM is a woman – she probably would have done it for cheaper. (CNSNews.com)
Muslims apparently find it offensive that the documentary film at the 9/11 memorial references Islam when discussing the motivations for the 9/11 attacks… Personally, I find the unprovoked murder of 3,000 Americans in the name of Allah kinda offensive. (NYTimes.com)
Face recognition software is being used to help the Feds build a data base of citizen information. (No, no, no… Keep the tinfoil hat on for just another minute or two.) Apparently, the goal is to make it possible for the Feds to track “suspects” in any city in the nation. (Big Brother’s mandated “Two Minutes of Hate” is still in the production phase.) (Independent.co.uk)
A group of anti-tax extremists were involved in an armed conflict with Government agents who had been sent to collect illegal assault weapons. Using high-powered rifles, the unauthorized militia engaged the government agents in a violent skirmish. 72 people ultimately died. A couple years later, these same extremists signed the declaration of independence. Moral of the story: Don’t mess with our guns (and don’t tax our breakfast beverage). (buckeyefirearms.org)
