Bad hair day
« on: November 21, 2011, 08:51:55 PM »
What do y’all make of our latest American Citizen terrorist?  The guy that showed up in court today in NYC with the wild hair.  Looked like he just rolled out of bed.

Did you see the parts of this bomb he was supposedly making?  Looked like a galvanized plumbing elbow and an old mechanical type alarm clock.  Looks like the work of the Wile E Coyote to me.  A mechanical alarm clock?  Can you even buy those anymore?   What was plan B, a big rock on top of a hill?

So where do these nut jobs go to school?  Religious school?  Obviously he’s a science illiterate.

there are plenty of nuts out there.  this one apparently got his schooling off the internet. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

So what did Mcveigh have in OK.? A bunch of fertilizer and some diesel fuel? Sometimes it don't take much.

Maybe ACME is an Al-Qaeda front?

But they're Low tech & we're High tech when it come to blowing things up.  They use a cell phone from 1/2 a mile away we use a satellite from the opposite side of the planet.  We both are trying to do the same thing with a different set of tools.  Well...I'd like to THINK we're trying to eliminate then but i'm not really convinced.

But, they could use that cellphone from the other side of the world if they wanted to...lot's cheaper than a satellite.  I think we are trying to eliminate them...but you've got to find them first and they are the experts at hiding in plain sight.

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

What kills me is the government hasn't caught anybody supposedly getting ready to attack us.  They go out and find guys that may have terrorist leanings contact them and act like they (the government) are a terrorist organization.  So basically they just give these guys a final push and arrest them.  Now on the other hand the american public so far since 9/11 is batting a thousand at catching and stopping the nut jobs that are true terrorists.  They helped foil the time sqaure bomber, the shoe bomber, and the underwear bomber.  So if I'm going to put money on who can truely catch real terrorist it's the american public.
