I'll revert back to my fourteen year old self for a moment:

Does this mean we should get high now? R0X0r!

Here I thought Dictatorships were the only ones that used fear as a tool to control the ignorant masses.

Watch out for those Scuba terraists.

Comment Bot: Nope. Everyone has been posting it with the news flash tag.

It just amazes me...9/11 was such a cathartic day for America; a really horrible thing, and to have to look at dildos like Ashcroft, Bush and Tom Ridge handling it a year later like three blind guys in a boat just kills my spirit. Just step aside and let someone that inspires courage and sanity run things. Dig up FDR or Lincoln fer chissake.

Cheney, having seen 9/11's shadow, has returned to his hole for six weeks to wait the coming of the election.

Seriously, he's going to spend all day tommorrow in a "secret location".

No thanks. We like our Asian American citizens running around, enjoying liberty and entitled to due process & constitutional protections, just as free as the next guy. You can keep your racist bastard FDR. I'll stick with GWB.

What a bunch of farking baloney!

(Boy, wouldn't my face be read if something really did happen tomorrow. Oh well, it won't.)
 
2002-09-10 06:55:15 PM  
blah blah blah.... just keeping livin in 'terra', folks... it'll be that much easier when the time comes to take the rest of your rights away from you. I guess alot of you really don't care, though- just as long as you always have the right to BUY, BUY, BUY!! Wake up.
 
2002-09-10 06:56:55 PM  
I love all the comments and pictures! Makes me laugh out loud.

Tomorrow I will be walking funny because every time the alert level goes up my husband decides this might be it and we have to make love all night looooong.

If it goes to red, I'm a dead woman. Whoooohaaa, bring it on. I only have one life to give for my country...
 
2002-09-10 06:57:59 PM  
So who is your favorite farker?

Mr_Crink: well even though he was slightly discourteous to
me recently, i would have to say ... captain insano.

Caiteach:

thats not true, 9-11 was the anniversary of the oslo peace accords between israel and the palestinians... oklahoma bombing was the annivesary of waco, and the uss cole was something else... forgot what it was. either way, youre wrong :)
 
2002-09-10 07:02:20 PM  
May I be the first to say that the US foreign policy sucks and I believe history will state that the present regime has all of the redeeming features of Hitler's Germany.
 
2002-09-10 07:04:09 PM  
I'd be more afraid of domestic terrorists than Al Quaida.

You know, people like Timothy McVeigh, and the anthrax mailers, and...

THESE are the people who would set us up the bomb on the anniversary. Real terrorists know not to be so predictable.

And you won't be the last, Aadomm. You also won't be the last to be called a damn idiot, which I am doing right now.
 
2002-09-10 07:06:08 PM  
When did we ever go off alert? I check my car for bombs every time a li'l white girl gets kidnapped.

Wait...that's the Amber alert....nevermind.

Who's Orange? Was she kidnapped too?

Big Al,

My apologies. I've had tospend most of the last two days dealing with politicians. Listening to someone drone on and on without actually saying anything tends to numb the brain.
 
2002-09-10 07:07:41 PM  
Orange alert?

Oh my God, it's a NAVEL DISASTER!

"No thanks. We like our Asian American citizens running around, enjoying liberty and entitled to due process & constitutional protections, just as free as the next guy. You can keep your racist bastard FDR. I'll stick with GWB."

Do you have any idea how many Arab Americans are hassled by the current administration? Hypocrite. You sound like someone who'd follow GWB.
 
2002-09-10 07:16:59 PM  
mmmm, brown alert.

...what?
 
2002-09-10 07:30:33 PM  
w00t! Raise shields! all hands to battle stations! Ready phasers and photon torpedos! Oh wait that's red alert nevermind...

On a seperate but related note, can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post that list of draft-dodging politicians?

Thanks for the compliment. Go read up on FDR, goober.

Mkfreeberg: You prove my theory that people on the internet are much larger than they appear in person. Goober?

I don't have to read up on FDR, but here's a bunch of links on the treatment of Arab Americans in this country:

ishidan- Real terrorists know not to be so predictable

They also know that if they get away with it on such a day, a day that we are all prepared for and armed to the teeth and pissed off, that people will loose a tremendous amount of faith in our goverment. Think about it. We will probably be more prepared tomarrow then on any other day on the calender. If they pull it off tomarrow, orange alert blaring, everyone double taking EVERYTHING suspicious, that we really have no defense against them. They prove, that against the best defense the world has to offer, the terrorists (offense) wins. Game over.

Translation: I don't know what you're complaining about and I don't care, but here's what's up my butt. You better read it four times or I'm going to be upset. By the way, I'm still calling you a "hypocrite."

You know, I might bother to list the differences between what Bush is doing and what FDR did, but...well...I'm hungry. Let's just say Bush is treating the Constitution like a binding document, and FDR treated it like toilet paper. And no, until I get a comment about the illegal and unconstitutional jailing of Japanese Americans, I'm not reading your articles.

My 9-month-old son is laughing at me laughing at Fb-.

Hey who beat me to submitting this? I thought my headline was better! (And I forgot what it was....) :P

Speaking of Fb-...whaddya think of Dubya wanting to invade Iraq? Something about the timing....
 
2002-09-10 08:32:17 PM  
Yellow is less than orange, so "significant" isn't as bad as "high?" Doesn't make sense to me. Oh well. My TV's glass will be cold as ice all of tomorrow...screw Katie Couric trying to ease me through it!

Later.

In my best Kid's In the Hall voice (take your choice of which):

Orange Alert, oh sure, how cliche...I think we should have more pastels and Fushia, oh yes Fushia. Orange just simply clashes with everything!
 
2002-09-10 08:36:53 PM  
CNN this morning was talking about Iraq actually being involved in OK City. Supposedly John Doe #2 was an Arab. McVeigh was working with them or something. But there were Arabs involved.

Ya never know. It doesn't change the fact that 165 (?) people died in that attack...but it could put a new light on things.

Ask Dubya and his Oil Barron puppeteer Cheney if Saddam Hussein has been behind every bad thing that has every happened to America ever and they will say yes.

It's propaganda to legitimize and giant oil grab and I call bullshiat.
 
2002-09-10 08:54:43 PM  
meanwhile on WRH:

"Seriously, if you were a terrorist, and saw the trouble the US Government was having selling this war that nobody wants, would you go ahead and carry out a terror attack to give the US the justification it needed to steal all the oil under the Middle East? Would you give the US Government the distraction it needed from the soaring unemployment, the soaring foreclosures, the soaring bankruptcies, the plummeting Dow? Or would you just sit back, do nothing, have a cold iced tea, and watch the US Government continue to destroy itself by lies and corruption? If there is a terror event, it will not be carried out by Arab Muslims, it will be carried out by those who want and need war in the Mideast, the US and/or Israel."

Interesting

The only good thing about the yellow alert is that my airline tickets for 9/12 were cheap. That is about it.

Glenlivid

Thanks. I was just wondering what the admin's definition of a newsflash might be. I knew that I had posted it five minutes after it appeared on the Washington Post website at 1:45pm.

Am I the only person who has noticed that Fb- has completely changed his persona since his return? His commentary is equally inane, but differently so. He also seems to have lost his edge. Too bad.
