Lookie what new technology our tax dollars have been appropriated for to help keep us "safe". Why soon they'll be "deputizing" plants for the cause, Grow Your Own Security: Prof Breeds Bomb-Spotting Plants | Danger Room | Wired.com. Why with any luck (another 10M or so of tax payer dollars wouldn't hurt either), we'll all be able to grow our very own "threat detecting" plants. The marketing opportunities are endless patenting so many different varieties of plants that could be "deputized" to line the sidewalks to our front doors!!! Do ya think another 200M of tax payer dollars could get Dr. Medford's GE plants over the lil ammonium nitrate "hump" so we could do away with those backscatter x-ray and millimeter wave screeners once and for all? She "probably" thinks it's not feasible.... "probably".... oh... oh... oh my!!!
