lol. You know he cried wolf so many times that he can’t even be taken seriously. And quite frankly it is a shame for a President not to be taken seriously regardless of party regarding terrorism.

I'm going to the Bears home opener and I am somewhat paranoid since I swear we have more Muslims here than in Pakistan.

They do pat downs but I doubt they'd even touch a burka for fear they'd be sued by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the ACLU.

Will have Xanax on hand...

Which is why the WH released the statement when they did.

Stage Crafting as they are calling it on FOX.

Sounds like the FBI uncovered some evidence of a pending attack on New York City and Washington, D.C. -- about ten years after the attack actually took place. That's about par for the course, I'd say.

I work for a state of Texas agency responsible for managing veteran’s cemeteries. Two weeks ago we received notice of a possible threat to all veteran’s cemeteries in the state.

I hear you. They have bought every gas station and convenience store so getting fuel won't be a problem. Feds are looking for three suspects who entered U.S. in August an two rental trucks.

The military needs to make it clear with a statement: “Any terror attack on the US will be met with a nuclear attack on the terrorists country of origin”.

Let’s pray the Obama administration hasn’t also been walking “traceable” nukes to terrorist organizations, or this Sunday could be a rough one.

Last week they were saying there was no threat.

Can’t get their stories straight. The only thing they know is it’ll be “Bush’s fault”.

Report came out shortly before the speech. NBC announced near 6:55P East Coast Daylight Time. Not certain what to make of the report as of this moment.

Obambi has already said that he’s taken a nuclear response off the table if America is ever hit by a WMD attack. He has also worked to lessen our arsenal and even show the Russians where are missiles are and tally them for Mother Russia.

People who flew here from Pocky-stan about a month ago?

What in the heck are we doing letting ANYONE from Islamic hell holes into our country?

Maybe Janet Incompetano can tell us what the pressing need was to allow these barbarians entry into our country?

“The Muzzies would know better.”

We probably have a few thousand Muzzies waiting and hoping for something this weekend. I remember going to the Statue of Liberty in July. The Ferry was loaded with Muzzies taking pictures of southern Manhattan. To me, It seemd like they wanted to get the next “Before” pictures so they could brag. Muzzies must think were the dumbest bastards ... we import them as we all know they plan to kill us.

Oh jeez... if they start hitting stadiums, Nepolitano will start giving white men, little boys and 90 year old women crotch checks before we enter them.

Americas pastimes will be Muslified and Islamafuokd.

Take me out to the ball game
grope my breasts and squeeze my junk,
then buy me some peanuts and pop corn prize
and run your fingers up and down my childs my thighs,
They dont care if I ever come back...

This will offset criticism for shutting down lower Manhattan on 911. It’s now “prudent”. See that was simple.

“Maybe Janet Incompetano can tell us what the pressing need was to allow these barbarians entry into our country?”

Umm, Her boss told her to?

These people have made me paranoid like I never have been before. I don’t put anything past them. Helping the terrorists, supplying them with weapons that they couldn’t get from outside the US. Staging it so he can declare Martial Law, and finally finish shredding the last parts of the Constitution he hasn’t already.
Every time I start thinking, Nah this is nuts, the same theory about conspiracies applies, that I’m starting to sound like the 9-11 kooks who say Bush was behind it, I have to stop and remember that Bush didn’t have a complicit media, he didn’t have a complicit State Department, and Bush’s supporters love this country. All the opposite is true of the traitorous SOB currently residing in the White House.
Jan 2013 can’t get here soon enough for so many reasons! When I see him, and that hypocritical, America hating witch of his, get on the plane to fly back under whatever rock they slithered out from, all of this mental contortion-ism will end. It will be nice to start making plans again, that don’t involve stock piling food, weapons, and bartering items.

You nailed it! That’s exactly my line of thinking over the last 3 years. What is scary, unlike the loons that believe Bush was responsible for 9/11, we know MANY others who feel the exact same way, many who have the same fears, the same constant nagging worry that those in power are here to DESTROY. It is like the deep fears, the unconscious rumblings, have come to life and we see it all in this administration.

It is a national nightmare. I wish I could wake up from it.

For years I have suspected problems would begin from the following coordinates: 40°44′58″N 73°58′5″W. I suspect diplomatic immunity will be the path of least resistance and aid in the act. I just hope they keep it in the building and no innocents are harmed.

At all NFL games ALL fans are required for pat downs. In the Winter you have to unzip your coat, sucks if you where 10 layers of clothes when it's -5 degrees out.

One time they patted me down and touched my pocket and made me take my ipod out because they thought it was C4 or something. So what I do now is take a little felt bag that I got as a giveaway at a White Sox game and put my phone, camera, iPod in there so they can check that and not make me remove every thing from my pockets.

Last week at a pre-season Bears game I didn't get the full molestation because I had a sling on my left arm since my left wrist is broken. They pretty much left me alone.

I expect Sunday will be a different story. I'm going to get Post Traumatic Flashbacks to O'Hare when I was some fat slob touched my genitals even though it was over the clothing. I don't play for the other team and don't want some fat slob union pig touching my crotch.

I rather stay at home or drive than fly. Going to Vegas is slightly difficult though but that is when I have to fly and get molested by a TSA thug.
