This week of April is 'Americans Terrorize America Week'. I don't know why Congress and the Bush person not declare this an offical holiday. Today, schools have shut down across the nation due to terrorist threats and an employee at NASA is shooting his gun at work in Florida. We should be allowed to stay at home this week, behind barbed wire and police dogs. Or travel oveseas where it is safer.
A building at NASA's Johnson Space Center has been evacuated after reports of a man with a weapon, according to news sources.
Houston's Local 2 reports, based on police communications, that "shots were fired" at Building 44, but NASA has yet to confirm that. A SWAT team is also at the scene, according to the Houston Chronicle.
A NASA subcontractor with offices in the building, Jacobs Engineering, has stated that the gunman, who has been confined to one room, is an employee of theirs, Local 2 says.
Most gun deaths are drug or gang related. Next: lovers or family members butchering each other. Then there is the terrorists: nearly 100% home-grown. Even the latest one had lived most of his life here. Back after 9/11 when our rulers told us we had to give up many of our civil liberties and things like habeas corpus, it was all done to protect us. Since then, thousands of people have died while Homeland Security, run by this Israeli who is NEVER in the news no matter how many terrorists appear or storms crash across our nation. He remains invisible, the jerk.
Aside from Chertoff, we see our politicians running from one tragedy to the next, weeping and wailing along with us but doing absolutely nothing to protect us from our own terrorists. Isn't there something wrong here?
I have been targetted by assassins and people have actually discharged guns at me or tried to run me over, I have been involved in politics for many years and stick out like a sore thumb. I haven't crawled under any rocks yet but I must say, we live in a nation that is having one big, fat nervous break-down because we are scared and we don't have the slightest idea, what to do.
Tenafly High School in northern New Jersey was closed today on the eighth anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado after school officials discovered graffiti that seemed to suggest some kind of threat tied to the anniversary date.
The evacuation and closing of the school came as a variety of threats — real or just bluster — were reported across the nation, apparently tied to the Columbine anniversary and the killings on Monday at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute.
Classes and school activities in Yuba and Sutter Counties in northern California and at Yuba College were canceled today after a 28 year old man was arrested for making threats to blow up schools. The man claimed that “he had some sort of explosive device, and he was going to make the incident at Virginia Tech look mild by comparison,” the Associated Press quoted Sutter County Sheriff Jim Denny as saying.
I didn't have to look far to see stories about terrorists terrorizing the USA. Not one of them was Muslim. Indeed, aside from the WTC, the attacks that terrorize us like the OKC bombings, have been Americans who want to destroy America for various stupid reasons such as wanting Jesus to come and kill everyone, for example.
A number of mass or serial killer terrorists have been American military men who went insane. This is seldom discussed but the truth is, war drives some people mad and then they come home and get violent here.
Schools and campuses in at least 10 states were locked down or evacuated in the aftermath of a Virginia Tech student's shooting rampage that killed 33 people.
Threats in Louisiana, Montana and Washington state on Tuesday directly mentioned the massacre in Virginia, while reports of suspicious activity surfaced in Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Dakota, South Dakota and Michigan.
Terrorism is fun. Mass murders are fun. This is why TV is addicted to them and needs them just as badly as the terrorists need TV. I noticed that NBC now rues trying to sell arthritis medicines in between episodes of the show, 'American Terrorist Idol' featuring the latest contestant, Cho. They blush crimson, saying, they just wanted to let us know the truth.
But the truth really is, they needed this latest terrorist in order to sell us stuff.
- President Bush said Friday that sectarian murders have dropped by half in Baghdad since the U.S.-Iraqi military buildup began in February, rejecting a Democratic leader's claim that the war is lost.
"These operations are having an important effect on this young democracy," Bush said in a speech on terrorism, his second in two days. "They're showing Iraqi citizens across the country that there will be no sanctuary for killers anywhere in a free Iraq."
You know, the very least one should say here is, what the effing HELL is this lunatic doing, talking about how safe it is in BAGHDAD (which is a lie, of course) but can't protect us from terrorists here? The whole world is not crying with us, it is now laughing sardonically. Or in the case of Iraq, snarling with rage.
Aside from his psychopatic need to lie, we lost what, 25 soldiers including Brits, this week? And how many Iraqis died violently? Anyone know? How about 2,000? We seem to be like some plague ship: everywhere we come into a harbor, we spread disease and death.
What can be said about the Virginia Tech massacre? Very little. What should be said? Even less. The lives of 32 innocents, chosen randomly and without purpose, are extinguished most brutally by a deeply disturbed gunman. With an event such as this, consisting of nothing but suffering and tragedy, the only important questions are those of theodicy, of divine justice. Unfortunately, in today's supercharged political atmosphere, there is the inevitable rush to get ideological mileage out of the carnage.
It did not take long for the perennial debate about gun control to break out, preceded by the inevitable scolding and clucking abroad about America's lax gun laws.
Bush, within an hour of the latest massacre, said he supported no laws controlling guns. The entire right wing and the crazier quarters of the conspiracy wings are all howling at us to NOT talk about gun control. Krauthammer even ordered us to not even talk about the latest massacre or else he and his buddies will do something like, say, massacre us.
These ghouls shamelessly use 9/11 to terrorize the weaker brained folk who live in fear of someone going to their local school and killing everyone with a gun bought at Walmart. This ridiculous level of fear coupled with a total inability to do even the smallest thing to stop it, can either be laughed about or viewed as clinical insanity.
Krauthammer wants to lock people up in the looney bin if they are violent and irrational. This is a great idea. Krauthammer and his neo con buddies like McCain and Bush and Cheney should all be locked in a secure place and let Nurse Ratchett minister to them!
And anyone who needs a gun for defense, all I can say is, join or start a street patrol! And learn the rules of the game, it is pretty simple, I used to teach this in New York City. You don't need any guns, you just need the cooperation of the police. And as for them: I said this years and years ago---they should get out of those stupid cop cars and patrol ON FOOT. Go from building to building. Get to know everyone. BE THERE. This stops things from getting out of hand!
