Cleveland man pleads guilty in bridge-bombing plot

AKRON, Ohio One of five men accused of attempting to blow up the Ohio 82 bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park pleaded guilty Wednesday and agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of his four former co-defendants...

The five men, described by federal prosecutors as domestic terrorists, are accused of planting what they believed to be actual bombs at the Ohio 82 bridge that spans the national park between Brecksville and Sagamore Hills Township.

FBI agents reported that they foiled the plot with the help of an informant by supplying the men with fake plastic explosives and arresting the five on April 30 as they tried to detonate the explosives with a cellphone.

The defense attorneys for the remaining four defendants said they will attempt to prove at trial that the FBI and a paid informant entrapped the men in the bridge-bombing plot. The lawyers have asked the judge to order prosecutors to turn over internal FBI emails and other evidence in an attempt to attack the credibility of the informant and the techniques that the FBI used.

"We believe the FBI agents violated their internal rules regarding their handling of the informant and what they instructed him to do," said John Pyle, defense attorney for Baxter. "This is information we need to have."

the most important numbers are

The economy and understands problems Americans face. This race will be close in the popular vote. Maybe not so much the electoral college. Obama will win both but the latter by a wider spread than the former.

That's my prediction.

fear and loathing seem to drive a lot of the gun control conversation on both sides

neither wants to give an inch, neither seems willing to listen (or for that matter talk rationally) to the other side. both ascribe the worst possible motives to the other.

Sad really.

the other side of boycotts

There is a mighty long list of products and eateries that might give many of pause if we knew where and how they spend their money, from environmental destruction to anti-equal rights causes to ALEC contributions to support for right-wing candidates. What I would like to see is a list of day to day household products and chain restaurants that do not support obnoxious efforts. I always try to buy local but that obviously not an option when it comes to many household items. I can buy them in a locally owned store but they are going to be products made by a giant corporation. So does anybody have a list of products made by socially responsible corporations? Stuff I can find in a small town?

the second amendment and "arms"

I do believe the second amendment grants an individual right to gun ownership. however it never mentions guns. It says "arms". so to interpret that literally and absolutely, I would have the right to a thermonuclear device and intercontinental ballistic missiles. Nobody believes that. Therefore even the most staunch firearms enthusiast/gun nut has to admit the government has a legitimate interest and therefore the power to "well regulate" what arms are kept by whom.

Having said.all of that, why is it not.reasonable to prohibit 100 round drum magazines?

Boycott Dark Knight?

The writer says he's a staunch conservative and compared romney to batman and ows to the villian bane.

Edited to say this is a question, not a call to boycott.
