This is just too easy for those who would disrupt our lives.

I’m surprised these things aren’t happening even more.

Suspicious Packages?

Isn't that the name of the new gay bar across the street from the Ground Zero Mosque?

MYFOXNY.COM - Vehicles and pedestrians are not being allowed on the Brooklyn Bridge due to a police investigation.

The Associated Press reports police received a call about a suspicious package at 9:38 a.m.

The caller told police a flashlight with copper wiring was on the pedestrian walkway, according to the AP.

Police are on the scene.

Traffic is being diverted to the Manhattan Bridge.

Death by a 1000 cuts.

Place harmless packages near various transportation hubs, energy facilities or places of business thereby distributing commerce as much as possible.

Watch the great satan run around in circles trying to catch his tail while spending vast amounts of resources in panic mode.

Dry runs, malicious pranks, who knows, but I have the feeling that under the surface there are things going on are causing a lot of sleepless nights for those who care.

Nope.

The new gay bar, across from the Ground Zero Mosque, is going to be called “Bottoms Up”.

LOL

Thing is, here in San Francisco there really is a bar called the Bottoms Up and I just assumed they would franchise.

Am I the only one who wonders if these alarms are a run-up to HS and Obama declaring a national emergency and calling off the election and instituting martial law?

They will do anything to hold on to power, and I have long suspected that the dems would not have felt so inclined to spit in the face of American citizens unless they were assured there would be no electoral consequence to their actions.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that weren’t already an existing club in NYC.

“Suspicious Packages?”

“Isn’t that the name of the new gay bar across the street from the Ground Zero Mosque?”

Good one! LOL!
