Terrorism

So, what is terrorism? How about we check old Webster’s:

the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

Hmm. Okay, how about “terror”:

: 1 a state of intense fear
2 a : one that inspires fear : scourge b : a frightening aspect c : a cause of anxiety : worry d : an appalling person or thing; especially : brat
3: reign of terror
4: violent or destructive acts (as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands

So, logically, a terrorist is one who uses terror to coerce people into doing things they don’t want to do, right?

So then, what is a person (or a group of people) who threaten me with physical violence if I sit at home and do nothing? Is there any way they cannot be considered terrorist? If I, personally, were to threaten you, good reader, with physical violence against you if you sit at home, am I a terrorist?

Well, according to the US government, in such a case, YOU are the terrorist. Yes, you, the one sitting at home doing nothing, are a terrorist when you do nothing, even when threatened by another. Yes, the logic is insane, but I will explain.

The US government is now threatening me with physical violence, imprisonment, fines, and anything else they can dream up if I go into an airport and do not obey their every order. They give me no option to retreat or leave, instead, once I have purchased an airline ticket and entered the airport, I must voluntarily give up all my rights, or violence will be used against me. If you do not accept that, you’re living in a fantasy land, because that is, without any exaggeration, where we are today.

But now that is not even enough!

Yes, seriously. Now, according to Obama and the DHS, I am a terrorist and need to be put on a terrorist watch list! Yes, really. Why? Because I’m opposed to having my privates fondled by TSA agents. No, not because I took any action at all. No, not because I’ve gone to an airport and refused the free sexual assault. Just because I sat at home and refused to fly.

According to recent reports from the Department of Homeland Stupidity, anyone who objects to the screening process should now be placed on terror watch lists. The directive, apparently approved by President Obama says that

any person, … that actively objects to the enhanced security procedures, the [applicable DHS administrative branch] is instructed to identify and collect information about the persons or entities, and submit such information in the manner outlined [within this directive].

If you oppose the new “security” procedures, you’re to be put on a watch list by the US government. It just never ends with these bastards, does it? And people still claim this is a free country. As I continue to say — this government is illegitimate. I’ll just live free and the government can do what it wants. After all, they have more guns and blindly obedient servants than I.

    We may already be on the list because we are Christian or a veteran or a bitter clinger, or because we oppose this administration. Remember….

    Now they are headed for the train stations, I understand. I long ago started taking the train because I didn’t want to fly even before the sexual assaults began. So now I am not safe from either radiation or groping, I guess.

    Yep, Gate Rapes & porn scans will soon be expanding from airports to buses, trains and boats AND apparently they are already scanning us in our cars and at public events!

  4. I’ve been really out of touch, I guess. I didn’t realize that Ogre’s been blogging here. **sigh**

    Victoria: “We may already be on the list because we are Christian or a veteran or a bitter clinger, or because we oppose this administration.”

    I am a Christian but I support the administration. Does that protect me or is it one strike and you’re out?

    Ogre: “Yes, seriously. Now, according to Obama and the DHS, I am a terrorist and need to be put on a terrorist watch list!”

    Notice how the source Ogre links to does not mention the word terrorist or suggest people are put on a terrorist watch list. Frankly though I think you’re quoting the ramblings of a biased nut job and I wouldn’t take his word on anything.

    • Big Dog says:

      Ever notice that the people who are called nutjobs are often correct when all is said and done. It is a secret paper so if he releases it he could be in trouble. Given how this administration has acted in the past it is not a stretch that it would be secretly targeting those who oppose. And Adam, if they have to report it to DHS and the threat assessment folks and information is collected it is reasonable that people are being placed on a watch list that is for domestic extremists. That would be handy for them to have when they decide to ratchet things up.

      Beck is a nutjob according to all the left wing moonbats but all that he predicted over the last three or four years has come true. Ditto with Ron Paul.

      I think I will remain guardedly suspicious of government and ready to do what is needed if it gets out of control. And I am not going through a scanner and don’t care what label they give me for refusing to do so.

      • Adam says:

        The details in question are based on an anonymous document that may or may not even exist and it’s reported by a man who clearly has an agenda against TSA. It’s hardly worth citing but many already have as if it’s absolutely irrefutably true. This is what builds the foundation for outrage from your side these days.

        As for Glenn Beck he’s simply another liar making millions to do so. There’s no other way to put it. His recent Soros specials were so full of lies and distortions that they’d get real journalists run out of the business the way Dan Rather was if they were involved. At Fox though that sort of thing gets a guy promoted.

        • Lisa says:

          Study history and get informed. For too many years there’s been ONLY pro-Liberal media. Finally, albeit maybe too late to wake up enough people, there are other alternatives for information. Read lots of Internet sites…get informed, instead of blasting those who love country and liberty on this site. FoxNews has the largest and growing marketshare….surpassing all others…wonder why?!

        • Big Dog says:

          If you can show the lies and distortions then do so. Beck has had a on his desk and gave the number tot he WH for them to call if he ever gets it wrong and they have never called (but they say he gets it wrong in the press). He invited Soros on the show and offered the full hour. One of Soros’ men came to “warn” Beck about his shows.

          I don’t want the Media Matters (Soros) or any Politifact. You do the research and show where he is wrong. You might have trouble since Beck used Soros’ own words.

          But instead of saying it is full of lies YOU (and I mean you) show it.

        • Big Dog says:

          As for the document, it is reported as secret so it can’t be released.

          Does not matter if the guy hates the TSA (a lot of people do), the fact is they have pulled this in the past (labeling a group as dangerous) and will likely do more of it in the future. I am amazed at how many times people deny something and then when it is shown or a prediction comes true guys like you have nothing to say. If this document ends up leaked and published what will you say then? Will you call it a conspiracy and further slander those who exposed it?

          I told you inflation was going to hit here and it has (you would not know by the way government reports). It will get worse next year. Energy and food prices are well up (two things not counted by government when measuring inflation) and the FED is tinkering with disaster. Inflation is here and yet you said it would not happen. It will be real high next year. What will you say then?

        • Blake says:

          I still have yet to find where Beck has made substantial, and PURPOSEFULLY MISLEADING statements, which would constitute a lie.
          Please tell me one- just one such statement that he provably made, Adam. All my research on Soros makes him out to be the scumbag that Beck has said he is- perhaps it is a matter of perspective- you see, I take OFF my BS goggles- do you?

  6. Adam says:

    “I don’t want the Media Matters (Soros) or any Politifact.”

    I’ll get right on that. I can’t wait for all my sources to go straight on the trash pile with all the others while you wall yourself off from the truth so you can continue to keep spreading lies.

    “If this document ends up leaked and published what will you say then?”

    I won’t run from the truth but considering there is no logic behind this idea that they would need to add irrelevant people to such a list I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it to reveal itself.

    “Inflation is here and yet you said it would not happen. It will be real high next year. What will you say then?”

    Sorry. Tiny amounts of inflation amounting to about a 0.1% increase in food prices is not the “hyperinflation” you’ve been harping about. There will be inflation, there just won’t be any inflation at the level you’ve been warning about. Food prices are a mixed bag. Some things are up, some are down. I’m not sure what inflation you’re seeing.

    • Big Dog says:

      I did not say this was hyperinflation, that is coming. There is inflation and it is more than 0.1%.

    • Adam says:

      “Inflation is here and yet you said it would not happen.” … “I did not say this was hyperinflation, that is coming.”

      Then again for the record: No, I did not say regular inflation would not happen. I said many times that some inflation was inevitable. But no, hyperinflation it’s not coming.

      “Energy and food prices are well up (two things not counted by government when measuring inflation) and the FED is tinkering with disaster.”

      You and Ogre both insist food prices are up but I wonder why you keep doing so. Some are certainly up but it averages out to nearly no increase since other items are way down.

      • Big Dog says:

        Perhaps it is because we actually do food shopping. I have been food shopping longer than you have been alive so I think I have a good idea when prices are up. And yes, hyperinflation will arrive. When it does it will smack you in the face. The Fed is causing it and they cannot control it.

        Food prices rise more than 2% in consecutive months

        Perhaps this will help you

      • Blake says:

        You have to look at the key foods- sugar, rice, corn, etc. Adam-When they go up, the rest follow- I have been through this before- when that traitor Carter was in power- and it is not pretty.
        Of course you, Adam, might have been more interested in the price of Pampers at the time, and missed that “Stagflation”- a NEW word for the masses who had to push their car to the filling station.
