As you can see the Department of Homeland Security is extremely concerned for the personal safety and welfare of all people in the United States, especially Toy Company Owners. They will spare no expense to root out terrorists and their malign devices. We can all sleep better at night knowing that this toy will not cost any one any more frustration.

Down with Al Qaeda and their infernal devices.

By the way, the patent had expired. There was no reason to remove the toy.

Smoke Screens...

Let me try to understand this. The store owner was able to discover that the patent on the rubix cube had expired by simply calling the maker of the rubix cube. Why weren't the agents from Homeland Security able to make the same phone call? It seems like intelligence still isn't part of any of these agencies...

I wonder if a GW contributor filed the initial complaint to Homeland Security? Is this really what the department of Homeland Security was created to do? It's too bad that it is being used against us instead of for our protection? Aren't smoke screens great???

Articles quoteS:

Six weeks after her brush with Homeland Security, Cox is still scratching her head.

"Aren't there any terrorists out there?" she said.

===============================================

Happy HAHAHAHHAHAH that was a funny article and the same sad :(. Thanks Rob.

Poor Cox, fresh catch for the day.

Somebody is incapable of doing their job correctly. In the expense, someobody has to fill in the blank to make it appear as though they are working for a cause.

I am quite certain Cox experienced will influence her decision in this election.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
