Are We Safer Yet?

From a BBC America interview, US fears Europe-based terrorism: “One of the biggest threats to US security may now come from within Europe, US Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff has told the BBC.”

Yes, folks, the terrorists are now coming through Europe and we never subject people on flights from Europe to any scrutiny… well almost never… unless they are Icelandic Christmas shoppers that everyone recognizes are Islamic terrorists at heart, willfully ignoring visa restrictions in Macy’s.

With retail in a slump and the dollar way down, I’m sure every major retailer in the US wants to hear that we are hassling the potential customers in Europe. Europeans will just flock to the US knowing they are going to be treated like criminals at our ports of entry, right?

Only 369 days to sanity.

Tell Us What You Really Think

Dr. Cole occasionally cuts to the chase: Ayatollah Huckabee Condemns US Constitution with new Fatwa.

Tsk, tsk. The VSP won’t like that very much.

As long as we are discussing loaded terms, I would like to point out a couple of things that certain Southerners say that are not exactly obvious. When someone says “bless his/her heart” down here they generally leave off the “after you rip it, still beating, from his/her chest” because that would disturb everyone digestion. One should always smile sweetly when using the phrase, and the additional phase “and feed it to the hogs” is rarely envisioned.

While generally “SBC” refers to the Southern Baptist Convention, among some Southerners is used to mean “ignorant misogynist Nazis”.

English is such a wonderful, playful language, even if you aren’t Humpty Dumpty.
