Honestly? This still goes on? The hollow, always wrong predictions from the Department of Homeland Security are still being released?
“[W]e can’t guarantee there won’t be another successful terrorist attack,” Napolitano will tell first responders and emergency workers.
Fuck off. Honest to gawd, fuck off.
At least the color-code alert system hasn't been in the news of late, though it's still a standby in airport communications play-list.
Orange alert. Were those fucking people kidding about that? "Remain vigilant." "Keep shopping."
The only upheavals and attacks that have affected most of our lives are those for which we received no warning, for which there should have been plenty of warning, but still overtook like flash floods: the housing market bubble bursting, the pirates of Wall Street getting bailed out, the auto industry running into a tree, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, AIG.
There are no cells at Guantanamo Bay for economic terrorists.
But luckily, there's Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to mark the anniversary of 9/11 with empty bureaucratic bilge.
She's another pickle on the shit sandwich of President Platitude's incredibly ineffectual administration.
Well, everyone here at Inside the Hotdog Factory will remain vigilant, will continue shopping and will report any and all suspicious activity to the authority, as the corpse of 9/11 is once against hoisted high and worshiped as though it were nailed to a cross.
