Oversight, cover ups, chaos … is the TSA protecting us or themselves?
With all the TSA rules and regulations, from removing your shoes to no liquids over 3 ounces, it becomes extremely annoying to go through all these shoots and ladders when you’re late for your flight. But you feel safer, don’t you? All of these rules were made by the government agency to help keep you and the country safe… right?

Who’s ready to be Inspired!?
I know exactly what you’re thinking, “When is Al Qaida going to come out with a monthly publication?” Well the wait is over—al Qaida, the world’s most popular terrorist group, has unveiled magazine to tide supporters over in between jihads. The aptly named “Inspire” has all the late-breaking information that an infidel killer couldn’t live without. Wondering who’s dating radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki? Well open up the August issue to see this rising star hanging out cave-side in an in-depth interview entitled “May Our Souls be Sacrificed for You,”… You won’t find that in Oprah’s magazine.

In the latest issue of Inspire, they teach all the little ones how to make a simple bomb… in your Mother’s kitchen, this shouldn’t be confused with the New Yorker’s expose on Cougars suffering from PTSD. Get ready to be Inspired, al Qaeda style, coming to a coffee table near you.
