Who Is Going To Tell Them?

When are the Wingers going to figure out they are being used? The Shrubbery and company don’t think there is any real threat to their persons from “terrorists”.

If they were worried about attacks they would not be attending announced events all over the country. The security for those events is designed to keep protestors away, not terrorists. If you are worried about terrorists you don’t buy properties in resort areas and then have the FAA make them no-fly-zones so their location appears on the flight charts the government hands out.

If you are concerned with threats you remain in a defensible location and allow your security people to do their job. You do not go flying around the country in a large readily identifiable aircraft and move around locally in a large readily identifiable caravan of vehicles on a known schedule.

Tom Ridge played with the “terror alert” based on the poll numbers. Apparently he took his crayons with him when he left, because it hasn’t changed at all since the last election.

When it is politically expedient they release information on the sources and methods being used to combat terrorism. People should never have been told about Valerie Plame, nor about Lieutenant General Stanley McChrystal, but the White House has revealed the names of both. They have shown more concern for the names of the people who crafted their energy policy, than public servants trying to protect this nation.

They will Never learn. Baaaaa….. The ones that DO know are too embarrassed, they are in too deep and can’t get out without looking really bad.

Think about it, they still argue about the Confederate flag – and that was how long ago??? They are still back in the 1860s, fighting for their rats.

They argue about the flag of the Army of Tennessee; they don’t even realize that it isn’t the “Confederate flag” or that the one they wave was a mistake by a military supplier.

You’re right, they are too embarrassed to admit they were conned. A lot of fraud victims are like that.
