Of course not. New York is a blue state.

It isn't obvious that the whole War on Terror exists as nothing but a pork delivery system?

The whole thing from top to bottom is a sham.

Good and Plenty federal funding.

Good sir, I am most interested in this 'pork delivery system'.
My chop reservoirs are low.

submitter: Meanwhile, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge or the Statue of Liberty didn't make the list

So, which one didn't make the list?

Godless New York has decided to side with the terrorists and against our troops. If you're looking for reasons why they're not getting HS funding, look no further than that. It was their MISGUIDED decision and now they're crying because they can't handle the CONSEQUENCES? Forgive me if I don't shed a tear.

From Hillary Clinton to Charles Schumer to Carson Kressley, New York has made it clear that they want us to fail in the GWOT. At least the Amish popcorn company is a faith-based terrorist target. Besides, these small businesses need all they can get after the Death-Tax DemonCraps forced them all to pay illegal aliens a $10-an-hour minimum wage.

Indiana, according to the list, is about the most dangerous spot in the U.S. to congregate; 8,591 sites within its borders have been listed as big-time potential terrorist targets.

we have that many walmarts?

We have the finest government that money can buy.

Anyone remember in 04 when W was seeking the Amish vote?!
 
2006-07-27 11:48:28 AM  
Isn't this old news? I swear even the Daily Show has already mentioned this...
 
2006-07-27 11:55:07 AM  
Sending money to the big cities doesn't accomplish much. The people that live there already know that they're targets and aren't too impressed. Sending money to Farkarewee, Wy however, makes a big impression, makes the locals feel involved, and scares the crap out of the backwash. The point is, you want to get the most possible terror for your dollar and going with small town hicks is way more effective.
 
2006-07-27 12:03:17 PM  
God, this is pathetic.
 
2006-07-27 12:08:01 PM

Can I use that as an excuse to call off work?

Sorry Palad, as smart as the government is, they realize the more we spend and borrow, the more taxed we are, the more we have to work and the less time/energy we have to organize rallies and protests.

Which is why hippies make the best protestors!
 
2006-07-27 12:12:11 PM  
Wow, that whole "We're all going to pull together in the spirit of 9/11 and stand shoulder-to-shoulder to fight terror" thing didn't last long, did it?

Any program that disburses very large amounts of money will eventually turn into a pork barrel. It's inevitable.
 
2006-07-27 12:12:12 PM  
Boy, you guys are going to look really stupid when Al Quaeda kills those poor Amish popcorneers.

It's because if these targets are left vulnerable, and are attacked, the scared public would no doubt grant more power to the Government; which in turn would allow more funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

The End.

Was just about to comment about not getting breaking news from the Waco paper until I realized that this is an editorial, not a news story. This story has been out for weeks.

Maybe it's time for an editorial tag.

Not to help the right with their fear tactics, but isn't just about every public place in the US a "possable terrorist target?" I mean look at what places (business, busses, homes) get attacked over in cities in the Mid-East. You have to give our local and fedral officals some credit, they have kept the "we want to destroy the US" croud in check enough that things haven't got bull shiat crazy here like it is in the mid-east.
 
2006-07-27 12:14:58 PM  
FOR everyone who has forgotten what happened on that fateful day I recommend this movie, 9/11 (circa 2002). A great documentary and a must see for all Americans. No propaganda just actual events as they happened.

Your tax dollars at work.

Gotta keep that Homeland Security busy. They might run out of stuff to do.

This just in from Al Gore: "I invented the Amish, and they are 10 degrees hotter now than they were 50 years ago."

What palad said.
 
2006-07-27 12:17:30 PM  
Well that DOES make sense. I mean come on, why would terrorist wanna attack NYC now? Nothing left here, but the state with the Amish popcorn company THAT'S a big target.

/a-holes!

Has it become obvious to everyone yet that when you let these red state ninnies pick what is and isn't a target, they're so terrified of terrorism that they'll pick pretty much anything.

Dear 99% of America, the terrorists have never heard of where you live.
 
2006-07-27 12:18:15 PM  
Talk about tax and spend democrats... Sheesh. This whole Department of Homeland Security is about the biggest goddam waste of money ever foisted upon the taxpayers. By the way is it orange or yellow today? I mean the terror alert level. Also, which is higher? Orange or Yellow? What brain dead idiot came up with that ridiculous system? Note to morans at the govt. - it is not immediately discernable to the average person which color represents a higher danger level. Perhaps you could have saved the zillion dollars you paid the PR firm that came up with that tripe and created some hierarchical symbols that are easily recognized - oh yeah, like numbers or letters. Duh. I can't believe more people don't biatch about this.

the Amish Country Popcorn factory..

Others on the list,

Old MacDonald's Petting Zoo,
The Mule Day Parade,
the Sweetwater Flea Market and
"Beach at End of a Street."

I say let 'em have a midnight basketball league. That'll keep them busy.

They're counting on that old adage, "Lightning never strikes twice in the same place."

Guess they didn't consult Roy Sullivan.

"HOMELAND SECURITY" is a load of BS. It started out as necessary and an essential idea post-9/11. But President Stupid and the GOP crooks in Congress turned it into a game of fleecing Blue States and heaping yet more federal welfare on teat-sucking deadbeat Red States.
 
2006-07-27 12:21:24 PM  
sigdiamond2000 Seriously, that was a friggen unbelievable funny arse post. If it was a Troll or Not, I still loved it. I can see the Blue State Blood Boiling.

/keep up the good work.
