As a non-Tea Party conservative (NOTE: There are actually two "Tea Parties", the original, "Tea Party Patriots", who are a bipartisan group chiefly concerned with tax policy and fiscal responsibility, and the faux "Tea Party Express", which is a group of crazed "social conservatives" who have …

Maryville, Missouri sex assault case: Hack group Anonymous plans 'Twitter storm'

'It's very good news' Malala didn't win the Nobel Peace Prize: Pakistani Taliban
Fri Oct 11, 2013
This is precisely the kind of story Americans SHOULD be reading. Unless you know the type of people you are up against, you cannot effectively resist them (that's not just me talking, it's actually one of Sun Tzu's more famous bits of advice "On War").
