Meet the Foxtrot Uniform Charly Kilo -ers

Firmen und Gesetzgeber der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika schaffen es immer wieder, mir jegliche Lust auf einen Transatlantiktrip zu rauben, z.B.

Southwest boots woman for shirt

Lorrie Heasley, of Woodland, Wash., was asked to leave her flight from Los Angeles to Portland, Ore., Tuesday for wearing a T-shirt with pictures of President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and a phrase similar to the popular film title „Meet the Fockers.“

The shoot first state? Ads warn about law

„Thinking about a Florida vacation?“ the advertisement asks. „A new law in the Sunshine State authorizes nervous or frightened residents to use deadly force.“The law gives broad legal protections to a person who is attacked not only at home, but „any other place where he or she has a right to be,“ and removes a common-law duty to retreat in the face of attack. A person being attacked will have „the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force,“ not only at home but in public places.

The law also gives the shooter immunity from criminal and civil charges unless the victim is a police officer.

Shoot First, Proof Later: Florida’s New Gun Law

Given the state of mind most people are in these days: hair-trigger anger caused by the high cost of fuel, (a shoot-out at a gas station is a lovely scenario to contemplate isn’t it?), paranoia about terrorists, the stress of work, and the fear of being shot on the drive to work, we ought to be seeing at least one of these shoot-outs a day before long.
