After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that the terror scare in Boston was an intentional open invitation by our government to terrorists.
How's that, you say?
Let's analyze the situation for a moment.
The police in Boston are apparently so stupid that they thought a lighted sign was a bomb.
This is as believable as the garbage people forward in e-mails, because people tend to go right ahead and accept that other people, even cops, are idiots, and look how dumb they are in this home video, ha ha.
Now. I simply refuse to accept that there was not a single person in the chain of command smart enough to swat down this obvious bad PR before anybody ever heard about it.
I think someone who wants a terrorist attack to happen, but knows they can't directly provoke one else they risk discovery and no war in Iran- that kind of special chickenhawk politician concocted this.
Point out something seemingly innocent like "ha ha, dumb cops, thought this was a bomb."
Subsequent news stories go on to point out that similar signs had been posted in many other major metropolitan cities.
Perhaps what nobody bothers to mention is: nobody stopped to care anywhere else, when the signs were being hung or afterwards.
If you want to stick something which is not a blinking sign in the shape of a cartoon character giving you the finger to bridges, overpasses, train stations, napping policemen, just go right ahead. We're too busy here in the USA to notice.
The only thing missing from the invitation is a map to all the local bomb-makers in town, with their office hours and maybe a handy list of the components you'd need.
I feel I need a signature line to add to these ranty posts.
"I was going to cut this tree down, but I thought I'd check to see if you didn't want to hang yourself from it first."
