10 year old gets suspended for bringing a tiny Swiss Army knife on a camping trip.This one caught my attention not only because it is ridiculous, but also because I went to school right next door in Cupertino. I understand that there is a need for security, but suspension? Expulsion?  Come on...

Shocker: Bill to *limit* government stockpiling of ammunition

Wow, I guess the news about various agencies purchasing three quarters of a billion rounds finally .  Nice to hear that ceilings can still be created instead of just being raised.  I sure wouldn't mind prices coming back down again!

Republicans in the Senate and House are expected to introduce a joint bill Friday that would limit the amount of ammunition that federal agencies are allowed to buy and stockpile over the next six months, .

The bill, titled the Ammunition Management for More Accountability or “AMMO” Act, is being proposed after several lawmakers have voiced concerns about some federal agencies, like the Department of Homeland Security, seemingly stockpiling large quantities of ammo.

“DHS, for instance, has placed two-years worth of ammunition, or nearly 247 million rounds, in its inventory,” the Free Beacon notes.

In a statement provided to the Washington Free Beacon, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), said federal agencies must provide more “transparency and accountability” in regards to its “stockpiles of ammunition.”

U.S. lawmakers secretly negotiating to exempt themselves from Obamacare

Do as I say, not as I do... It's good for thee but not for me... etc.  No hipocrisy there Silly From :

Top lawmakers on Capitol Hill are negotiating a secret deal to exempt themselves from Obamacare. The Obamacare mandate is a total nightmare, of course, and it doubles health insurance rates while providing nothing resembling actual "health" care. It's such a nightmare that the very people who passed it now want to exempt themselves from it.

CISPA sneaks through House while media busy covering Boston bombing

[W]hat is worrisome is that the legislation was passed in the House, largely by a party that is supposed to be all for smaller, less intrusive government. See how there isn't much difference these days between Republicans and Democrats?

At CISPA's core is the Fourth Amendment, which reads:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

That seems clear enough - no government intrusion into your private "effects" without "probable cause" and a search warrant. But, says Bomboy,  would essentially nullify these rights as long as the federal government says it needs to do so to protect you:

CISPA is designed to let the federal government work with private companies to fight hackers and cybercriminals in and outside of the United States. As part of the effort to detect cyber threats, private companies could voluntarily share with the  data about Internet users. The sharing could be done in "real time" as the cybercops try to defeat and track down the evildoers. Companies could also share data among themselves as part of the effort.
