The reports are still coming in, but we have reason to believe that there is a potential terrorist threat scheduled for tonight in the United States!

As we have been warned for years, The only way to stop terrorists is to maintain large stocks of weapons and to vigilantly protect against any and all threats!

(News on the flip.)

I Understand that NORAD has just called a press conference, and I'm linking to the Live feed right now.

Shocking, isn't it!  The thought that somebody could consider attacking American Airspace...

WAIT!  Wait, I'm just getting a report that there has been a subject taken into custody!
Well, the good news is that we will ensure that this man will reveal the extent of his plot!

Truly terrifying.  Well, at least we can all sleep soundly knowing that the government is around to defend our rights against such horrifying criminals who disseminate terrorist products like Video Games! (Just like the NRA has always warned us!)  Wait, wait, you're telling me that the NRA actually MADE video games????  Oh wait, nobody bought them because they really, really sucked.

I guess if One has to come right down to it... there's really no comparison.  I mean, we had 3,000 dead and we felt the need to turn our airlines into an armed camp.  Even though the odds of dying to a "Terrorist Attack" are roughly... uhm.   1 in 1.7 million.  

Well, it can't be that bad, I mean, what are the odds of dying to a gunshot?  More likely than dying in a Car Crash?   Well, not YET...  Besides, it's only 85 a day...

The logical conclusion, to judge from the track record of the US, Is to set up SAM sites at every point at which an aircraft could enter US airspace.  That would help solve the jobs crisis by giving jobs to defense contractors, and would be a part of the defense budget, so nobody could ever cut it.

Or, you know, we could get rid of the guns, but let's not be SILLY.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
