The truth may set you free, but finding the truth is like playing tennis. You don't get a hint of it until you've returned the volley about three or four times. The mainstream media counts on the masses never returning what's served up. Journalism today has become a caricature not unlike what Robert Lynd describes by saying "Research without an actively selective point of view is like the ditty bag of an idiot, filled with bits of pebbles, straw, feathers and other random hoardings."

Wayne LaPierre No Go On Space Disarmament
NRA REFUSES TO PASS BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS ON COMMERCIAL
By George E. PourgiCPW News Services
Wayne LaPierre, President of the National Rifle Association
or NRA, has challenged his members not to support an international ban on
assault weapons oncommercial space
stations.The proposal for a total ban on
assault wepons is in response to concerns that future space travelers may want
to take over a commercial space station as a jihadist outpost.
“It stands to reason that if jihadists hijack airplanes that they will want
to hijack a Virgin Gallactic or SpaceX space station sometime in the near or
distant future and there is no reason to give them access to space weaponry if
they plan to shoot up a space station,” said Myrtle Crepe of SSFOG, Space
Stations Free of Guns, a Melbourne, Florida peace activist group.
“I can’t figure out what Mr. LaPierre’s angle is on this
deal.Who’s going to blast away on a space
station with an AR-15 or AK-47 knowing that when the ship’s skin is pierced it’s
bye bye baby?” asked Crepe.
NRA member Zoe Spurmata of Las Vegas, Nevada said that he
believes that unloading a wad of high powered bullets, especially armor piercing bullets, in a commercial space station that may not have the same quality of construction standards as those produced by sovereign nations is a guarantee of total implosion of the pressurized zero
gravity and air tight refuge.
“If Mr. LaPierre is not willing to ban assault weapons in
space, then I’d like to have him tell us how we can get the bodies of future
space travelers back home to their loved ones for a decent burial,” said
Hearing Mr. Spurmata’s concerns for total space disarmament
Col. E.M. Bolmer, of Arlington National Cemetery and Reginald Ford Meldehyde of
the American Society of Embalmers and Cemetery Proprietors has joined SSFOG in
calling for a total ban on space weapons.“We have something of a bifurcated policy on gun bans, said Mr. Meldehyde.“On earth where bodies gunned down in drive
by shootings, robberies, terrorist attacks, or simple domestic disputes over
Grandma’s nagging to a husband’s discovery that his wife is in bed with the
plumber, the recovery of bodies for burial is no major problem.We do that every day and it is such a comfort
for the family to know that their loved one will be responsibly, tastefully and
reverently interred for a minor fee that is often covered by insurance.When it comes to a gun blast in a space station with the ensuing
implosion and bodies strewn across the galaxy there is no opportunity for the
kind of closure that our funeral services can yield for a grieving family.Therefore we implore Mr. LaPierre to
reconsider his ill-advised policy that makes sense in some
circumstances, but not in others,” said Mr. Meldeyhde. "We are asking people to write or call Wayne LaPierre to register your concern that he back our arms embargo for commercial space stations by contacting him by phone or mail," said Meldehyde. He can be reached at at:
