Innocent Until Proven Terrorist

Terror Suspects Buying Firearms

I can't even begin to explain how unnerving this is to me, but I'll try. First of all, the article says to me that there are people who will buy into this crap, otherwise it wouldn't be in the New York times. That alone is unsettling enough.
The article presumes that just because someone is on a terrorist watch list that they are terrorists, or at least someone to be nervous about. My most intense qualm with this is the old saw "innocent until proven guilty", of which I (unless I missed something like a patriot act or whatever) believe the justice system is still supposed to uphold. Being as I have been the victim of not-so-innocent-until-proven-guilty treatment myself, I take personal issue with this. It is a really terrible position to be in when you are arrested and jailed for a crime you didn't do, and of which you were later acquitted of. Let alone all of the people who belief you were guilty even after the fact and treat you accordingly. It's just ugly and ignorant to treat people that way.
Lastly the only reason the article was written in a way to foster concern amongst it's readers is to serve the agenda of the gun-grabbing lobbyists. The author, as I am coming to know him, is nothing more than a lap dog for gun control advocates and the Brady Campaign. Do a search of his name and the word gun or brady campaign and you'll see exactly what I mean. If it is an article and he wrote it, it is probably about how guns are evil, and now that "Terrorist" is the new way to say evil, he can write about both at the same time. YAY!
I'm sure glad that this new wave of fear-mongering is keeping honest and truly talented writers in business. Now that the cold war is over and there are no more evil Russian invaders to blame for all of the draconian laws being passed they needed something.
Damn it all, but the media is just not on our side. They do not have the citizen's best interests in mind when they write this crap. So why do they do it? Is it because it's sensational, or is it because it's what people want to or expect to hear? I don't know why they report the pseudotruth skewed the way they do, but it's just plain wrong. We really should stop paying for it, it's getting out of hand.

Antonius became even more famous when in 2009 he became the first poker player to accept the "durrrr Challenge". The online high-stakes duel Tom Dwan put up $ 1.5 million, and Patrick Antonius $ 500,000. Under the agreement, the player who, after 50,000 hands heads-up will have a better score wins Puke $ 2,000,000. At the moment, both players played only 39,436 hands of the planned number of 50,000 - so the challenge remains unresolved, although Durrrr leads at the moment, being in the black $ 2,059,719.5.
