Posted on 12/06/2010 12:44:36 PM PST by moonshinner_09
Washington, D.C. - Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department's national "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country - launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.
"Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe," said Secretary Napolitano. "I applaud Walmart for joining the If You See Something, Say Something' campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities."

This is so stupid, Napolitano needs to be booted yesterday.
Attention Walmart Shoppers. If you see any illegal aliens shopping in the store, call Janet Napolitano.
Yet border security, never mind? The only thing she is looking out for is Non- Union related!
Is this woman a complete moron or what?! How many terrorists pick up their explosives at a Walmart? Is there a certain aisle that I’m not aware of? Geez.
Report your neighbors, and your family members
Just tell us who you want blackballed... we’re the government- you can trust us.
I see an Administration that seems to be dominated by overweight, ugly lesbians. Who do I tell?
I see a fat, ugly, stupid ‘woman’ who doesn’t know a thing about security for this country.
Whom do I say something to???
But if you “say something” and the person you “say something” about happens to be in a PC protected class, say, MUSLIM, then YOU are the one that’s in trouble.
This is just a backdoor assault on Walmart.
Walmart is not unionized.
TSA to put body scanners and bomb-sniffing dogs in all Walmarts
Should I report it?
“Mommy! Mommy! I saw a bad man with a Tea Party bumper sticker!”
HEY! LOOK IN THE SKY! IT LOOKS LIKE A MISSLE LAUNCH!
What do you mean *I'm* under arrest?
Yep. Take their picture. Get their license plate number. Might even have TSA patdowns to get in the door.
I see a lot of criminals in Washington DC, who can I report this to?
She’s just trolling for people she can prosecute for racism or racial profiling once they turn in a muslim as a suspicious person.
I see bureaucrats and a gov't agency out of control.
If you see J Nap, you can not un-see J Nap
OK... and I’ve certainly got no love lost on Napolitano, but this basic idea has been around since after 9/11.
What should we be asking people to do? If you see something that “just doesn’t look right” that might be a sign of a terrorist act in planning or operation... what are you folk saying? That people should do nothing and go on about their way? I don’t see any problem with asking people to be alert, and to do something when something doesn’t look right, and that’s all this is.
If you sent ICE into any Wal*Mart here in California the place would empty out in about 2 seconds. Really? “See Something Say Something” ... ooooh pretty tough talking there ... Dang these people in the Obama administration are irritating!!!
and WalMart’s sucking-up to the Democrats in order to try and hang on to their #1 market position continues...
We at the federal government want to continue our programing of our nations people to get worse and worse at turning in people for anything so we can use your newly heightened suspiciuous natures to be our little spies for everything.
maybe we should each call and report that a guy in a beard and a turban stopped a clerk and asked in what aisle the bomb timers were stocked...
If I see a gang of black youths at 3:00am in a suburban neighborhood, in a van with lights off driving slowly down the street; I can't say anything because it would be "racial profiling" to have the police stop them and ask them where they got all those color TV's and silverware and jewelry in the back of the van.
what doesn’t “look” right is the Gate Rapist in Chief has her butt ugly mug or message in a place that we have to see it. We don’t need no stinkin government to tell us what to do. If you haven’t figured that out you need to exit life forthwith and quit wasting air in my universe.
Uh... what did I say, exactly that has you now wishing for my death?
I think if I see somebody assembling a bomb in the back of a truck, I wouldn’t just ignore it. I’m not sure why you responded the way you did.
Somebody that turns in a potential terrorist is a “snitch” to you? Somebody that should be killed?
Good Lord... what’s happened to FR today?
"Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers"
"There's an apparent Suicide Bomber in Aisle Five.
Will all shoppers calmly walk to the nearest exit".
"That is, all shoppers except for YOU, Mohamed.
Joe, in Sporting Goods, has a.308 aimed at your head."
"Thank you for your cooperation, and for shopping at Wal-Mart."
NOTE: I'm not mocking Wally-World. Far from it.
Recently an on the ball employee in the Order Dept caught someone trying to commit FRAUD with our credit card. The attempted fraudulent purchase(s) didn't match our buying history.
[So we'll go out of our way to shop there now. That Wal-Mart employee saved our bacon.]
YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE RESPONDING TO THE ARTICLE - NOT PERSONALLY TO YOU
Yes I see illegal Mexicans, I see liberal morons, I see fat slobs with food stamps, I see boys dressed like girls and girls dressed like boys, I see a Kenyan in the white House, I see a strange looking beast called Big Sis, I see, I see, I see....
Social conditioning of the feeble minded, meek and dependent classes to enhance the powers of the totalitarian police state.
Khmer Rouge and East German Stasi comes to America.
Sometimes. But not that time, I think.
This is just more rubbish from that incompetent cow, Napolitano .
Let’s not forget the nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7, 2009 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”
It says the federal government “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months” to gather information on “rightwing extremist activity in the United States.”
The joint federal-state activities will have “a particular emphasis” on the causes of “rightwing extremist radicalization.”
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.
I’ll bet I am already on the list......
Where’s that FReeper with the word of the day ??
Here it is...........STUKACH
Okay. I see a nazi. Her name is janet.
The best defense against terrorists, both foreign and domestic, is the practiced hand of an armed citizen.
I see a fascist. Just sayin’.
“I think if I see somebody assembling a bomb in the back of a truck, I wouldnt just ignore it. Im not sure why you responded the way you did.”
Wow you can perform the basics attributes of a good citizen!!! But you need the Chief Gate Rapist on a monitor in front of you to direct your actions?
The item was about the Rapist on monitors not whether “you” know shi.. from shinola. Yet you defend the Rapist? and her putting her butt ugly mug where it doesn’t belong?
You’re right, you don’t get it. Sheeple never do....watch out for the cliff.....take the rest of the sheeple with you. That would be a GREAT public service.
“If You See Something, Say Something”
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
I see that many Wal-Mart stores will soon begin running so-called "public service" announcements from the federal government at your check-out lanes. The title of the program is called "If you see something, say something" (this sounds like something you'd see in Communist Cuba, where neighbors spy on neighbors and report to the government). Given this current administration's attempts to paint many that disagree with their policies as "extremists" or potential "terrorists", while coddling (i.e., giving them the same right as citizens to be tried in our judicial system, etc.) our true enemies, middle eastern young males - who have committed the vast majority of terroristic acts around the world since the 1960's, I view this new "program" as government propaganda, and inappropriate to FORCE-FEED your customers. I want a pleasant and eifficient shopping experience - FREE FROM POLITICS - when I visit Wal-Mart, or any other retail establishment. If you go ahead with this ill-advised plan, I will discontinue shopping at Wal-Mart until this "program" goes away. The federal government, especially the current left-wing democrat-run iteration, has vastly expanded the scope and reach of the highest levels of government, so much so, that I would not have been surprised to start seeing large, idealized statues and pictures of our "dear leader" - Obama in public. WHY, given the fact that the federal government is spying on citizens, planning assasinations of citizens, groping and taking nude pictures of us at airports, splashing our radio and television with "public service" messages, etc., would YOU, a retail company, add to this over-reaching of their power and scope? It makes no sense. Please reconsider this "partnership" with the current congress and administration before there is a massive customer backlash against this ill-conceived relinquishment of your privately owned retail space to the federal government. Thank you.
We all need to express our disgust with this "partnership" in no uncertain terms at...
Aren’t you a little new here to be such an asshat? Usually, newbies are more polite, at least for a while.
Or maybe this is your first beer... right? Well, with time you’ll learn how not to be such an obnoxious drunk. Hang in there.
I’ve been here for 10 years next month ... nearly as long as you. And I agree ... with Boo. If I see a terrorist assembling a bomb ... I will call a cop BUT if I see a guy in Walmart peacefully wearing a side arm .. as I occasionally do, I WON’T call a cop like some hysterical idiot in Florida did last month.
Why would a guy wearing a sidearm be a problem? I do that too. I’m talking about ~suspicious~ behavior, not normal behavior. Some here would apparently just walk on by the bomb in a truck and figure it’s somebody else’s problem.
Pardon me if I got a little snippy. I do that sometimes when people wish I was dead.
