» It's unusual that a lead story should be a non-political obituary, but there is no other lead story in the world today. Steve Jobs the creator of Apple Corp. has passed at fifty six years of age. RIP Steve Jobs. Much much more in the commentary.

» The Senate WILL vote on the Jobs Bill next week and and additional 5.6% tax on people making a million dollars a year or more. That's the equivalent of about $15,000 dollars per million... Meh.

» The 'Underwear Bomber', who attempted to blow up an airliner over Detroit on Christmas day a number of year ago is on trial and acting as his own counsel. He's already referred to the United States as "A cancer on the globe". If this joker was the best person for the job that Anwar al-Awlaki's bomb-making friend could find America doesn't have a lot to worry about, and he's simply one in a loooong history of remarkably stupid 'terrorists'.

More on THAT topic from Anonymous @ Tremble the Devil:
5 most ridiculous moments in terrorist history

It’s generally a bad idea to leave the keys to your getaway car inside of the carbomb you’ve just rigged with fireworks, three propane tanks, a couple 5-gallon jugs of gasoline, and 100 pounds of explosive fertilizer.

Makes it kind of hard to get home.

Wait wait, make that non-explosive fertilizer actually – because you’re too stupid to bother googling what kinds of fertilizer actually blow up. Plus, what makes it even harder to get home is also locking your house keys inside of the same carbomb. And it’s probably an ever worse idea to release a YouTube video claiming responsibility for the attack before it even happens… especially when your attack hinges on a bunch of fireworks left in a bucket igniting a bunch of explosive material that’s not even exposed to the air.

But that was the modus operandi for Faisal Shahzad, just one in a long line of really, really stupid terrorists.

For reasons that’ll soon grow obvious, after the successful execution of an FBI sting against a group of ex-cons who’d converted to radical Islam in prison last summer, one of the media’s favorite quotes has been that at least one of the men is “intellectually challenged.”

This is said like it somehow makes him incapable of carrying out a terrorist plot. Like all past terrorists have been clever. Sinister, devious fellows who used their sharp wits and bright minds to think their way past our defenses. Like much of terrorism, this is an illusion. Many past terrorists, even some of the most notorious ones, have been complete morons. It was only two years ago that two terrorists were thwarted from bombing an airline terminal when their Jeep Cherokee got stuck beneath the awning of the Glasgow International Airport.

One of the duo fled from the Jeep in flames, and was forever immortalized when a Scottish cabby kicked him so hard in the crotch that the heroic cabby broke his own foot, leaving us with the absolutely epic headline: I Kicked a Burning Terrorist So Hard in Balls That I Tore a Tendon In My Foot. And in fact so many terrorists have been so ridiculously stupid that the failure of this most recent plot doesn’t even break into the top five.

The media’s also keyed in on the fact that the ringleader in last year’s NYC plot smoked up during the day of their foiled attack, and was still so high he told the judge he only “sort of” understood what was going on around him. Which brings us to our first moment:

5. The formation of the Assassin sect

If it wasn’t for weed, we might still have Ghandi, Abe Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, and JFK with us today.

You might even say that their deaths never would have happened if some old dead Muslims hadn’t been baked out of their minds. Nowadays when you get high you’re pretty much only a threat to someone’s life if they happen to be a Dorito, but back in the day getting higher than a giraffe’s ass was an inescapable prerequisite for joining what’s become the world’s most notorious fraternity of killers.

And the term “fraternity” isn’t used loosely here, as about any SAE pledge-master would be put to shame by the initiation ceremony of the original Assassins – but more about that shortly.

The term Assassin actually loosely translates to “pot-head.” Labeled Hashshasheen in their native Arabic, literally “those who smoke that dank-ass Mediterranian hash,” the Crusaders who first encountered them decided this was a bit too much of a mouthful so over the years the term was anglicized to the more familiar “assassin.” As it turns out, smoking the sticky-icky was an integral part of becoming an Assassin...

» There was a major demonstration in support of #OccupyWallStreet by an estimated 15,000 to 30,000 people in New York yesterday. The protest was peaceful considering the size of the crowd with only 20 to 30 arrested, mostly after the march. There WAS a clampdown on the #OccupySF (San Francisco) encampment after midnight last night in an attempt to break their protest. More at IndyMedia San Francisco.

» Maybe it's time we leave? There was also a major protest with tens of thousands of people in the streets of Kabul Afghanistan yesterday with the demand that all foreign troops leave the country. There was amazingly little 'push back' from the Kabul police.
