Alert level: Justify our ludicrous budget
 
2014-02-19 08:11:09 PM  
Well, they're unionized now.
They've got to keep fisting that fear chicken.

/And why in hell would they want the public to know about this "threat" except as a means to scare people?
//"Threat" I do not think it means what they think it means.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Alert level: Justify our ludicrous budget


This!

Either that, or they panicked because not enough people were afraid.

TSA apparently got ticked that congress talked about relaxing some safety precautions.

Saw the footage on CNN. One shoe in a field, massive explosion. Various explosions including a plane blowing up. A plane massively blowing up from a shoe bomb. Right. Looked like BS right there. I thought the Bush administration was over including the BS hype for imagined threats with super duper bombing abilities.

I've got a feeling that suicide bombers, with their thoughts of glory and 72 virgins, are ALWAYS coming.

For this article?

Although in a way, you're right.
 
2014-02-19 08:19:01 PM  
Sooner or later they'll get one right.  What i did like was the report on NBC News that the threat concerns flights coming to the US from overseas so the only planes shown were from foreign airlines,as if no US airlines fly into the US from overseas.

These guys appear to be the 2014 version of a weatherman saying there is a 50% chance of rain tomorrow... Minus the whole backed by science thing.

Just in time to sell their bullshiat service where you pay the farkers $85 a year so you don't have to take your shoes off.

Does anyone else think that CNN's homeland security expert is just useless? They bring her on all the time, and it always seems like she is just pilling stuff out of her ass.

I saw the same thing, except using carrots.

My friends in al-Qaeda tell me that in fact they're planning a whole wave of ass-bombers.

That is, they're going to be hiding bombs way up their asses. They figure the TSA would never stoop so low as to search every single bunghole all the way up to the descending colon.

Did you really think this bullshiat was going away when the new guy came along?

Real life does not work that way!

Homeland Security = Governmental paranoia.
You are nothing but a useless farkin' sheep if you consider these wastes of oxygen as having any legitimate use.
 
2014-02-19 08:52:00 PM  
You damn peasants are starting to question our raping of the Constitution, so it's time to put some scare in you.  Pity those damn terrorists haven't bombed anything lately.  That would make it so much easier.

I know a dreadlocked stoner babe that sells crystals to protect one from just this sort of thing. I think they work on gout too.

Oooga-booga.

One nation, under fear, divided against itself, by a self-sustaining technocracy, for ever and ever.

Wait until the terrorists figure out how to use a smart phone and G motors to build makeshift SAMs. Or imagine a quadrotor with a shaped charge attaching to a taxiing airplane like a limpet mine. Be glad the real terrorists tend to be a bit stupid.

TSA security guards, so tired of only molesting and raping people flying out of airports, decide to molest and rape people coming in to airports.

/TSA job description and duties are considered to be a criminal act.
//Martial law still in effect in North America.

skinbubble:

"Cancel all of your plans, and just stay home. You might be killed, along with countless others. We don't know who the threat is. Just fear everyone. Fear everything."

There, I'm done. That should get the public moving in the direction we want them to...

And how else do you propose they be kept in line?  Setting small segments of the population against one another doesn't seem to be enough.

FTA:   The officials say the threat information was not specific to any particular airline, country, or time.  There is no indication of a specific plot.

"It's a reminder that we are under constant threat..."

Yeah well, as always I'll wake up every day and live my life without once giving thought to omgzterrorists. It is not a part of my life.
I have no intention of being grouped with the paranoid herd as in the other thread; the plane being delayed because someone was taking notes in Arabic.
That is just farking lunacy.

Oh I feel you clowns are doing a bang up job showing us how it should be run. Examples like this bridge and record unemployment for minorities surely will show us the way. I'm not going to obstruct your path, carry on brave soldier!
