    Are you a jihadist or Mexican drug cartel? They are the only ones who need to worry about that. Besides, that's probably the only thing left that isn't made in China. Let someone keep their job!

      Because governments only go for the bad guys, we all know that.

      What may I ask is a "legitimate site"? One that gives you nice, comforting, mainstream information that does not disturb your slumber, and feeds you the propaganda you need to enable you to keep ignoring what is really going on in the world?

      Would CNN and the BBC be legitimate? Both are companies who have strict guidelines as to what a so called “journalist” may say, and anyone who steps out of line is fired instantly. Is that what you mean by legitimate?

      “Legitimate” rhymes with “censored”, have you noticed?

        Well, I would put natural news on the same level of the National Enquirer.

          Well would you say that the BBC is "legitimate"

          See what I mean about censorship?

          If you want the truth, sometimes you have to go and look for it in some unlikely places . . .

    Ya know... I meant to say something when I first saw this news tidbit...

    Our government has stock-piled huge amounts of manufactured items before. And then they end up trashing 80% of their purchase, because the stuff becomes obsolete. This has been going on for literally decades. They just never seem to learn. Maybe this will be an exception, but I doubt it.
