I, terrorist

Officer.com:

In the 62 cases reviewed, the subjects increasingly spoke out against the government, blamed the government for perceived problems and did so in a way that caught the attention of other people in their communities, according to the senior counterterrorism official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private White House event. Subjects became active on the Internet to espouse extremist views. In some cases, the subjects purchased weapons, ammunition or explosive materials.

Terrorism will soon go the way of words like racist or fascist and lose any real meaning.

    Sounds like they plan on going after, oh, I don’t know, 80% of the U.S. Citizenry? That’s about how many fit one of their Standards.

    That’s me. On average, I commit Three Felonies a Day.

    Remember how Napolitano said a few years back how the big concern was returning combat veterans? We come back from overseas, wondering why we were there in the first place, try to find out what happened to the freedoms we said we’d die to defend, and we’re labeled “terrorist.”

    They’re concerned that veterans will come home and try to defend the Constitution in the only way they know how to.

    I call that “Tuesday”.

    It’s hard to get explosive materials in the Urban Centers without the BATFE supplying them through some crooked “outreach program,” especially when there’s no feed-shop or agricultural supply depot.

    But it’s *funny* how they might talk about “counter(ing) violent extremism” without mentioning the Administration and many Congressmen and Senators’ support for the #OWS crowd of blackshirts…

    My God…

    Didn’t George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc… do EXACTLY THE SAME THING?

    The government now is there to protect itself, and not the PEOPLE.

    I believe that horse left the barn when some guy was labelled a “financial terrorist” for making silver coins.

    Paul; I got halfway through the post actually thinking it was about America back in 1775.

    Yup; that’s me. Anyone have a fucking problem with it?

    Yeah, that’s me too! Can I get an official U.S. government terrorist certificate suitable for framing now? I mean, if I tell all my friends that I’m a government certified terrorist, they’re going to say that I’m just bragging, unless I can show them the official certificate. Can I pay extra for an extra fancy one, with gold leaf and fancy signatures on it and all? Do they have a “presidential signature version” available for an extra charge? I mean, okay, so it would just be Obamarama signing it, but still, I mean, he’s supposed to be the president, isn’t he? It’s still a presidential signature, even if it’s just his, isnt it? It would probably be just robo-signed anyway.
    Still, it would be really cool to be an official, U.S. government, certificated terrorist! The local paper could do a front page article on me! I mean, unless everyone started getting a certificate. If they’re just going to sell them on the Internet to anyone, it just wouldn’t be the same, would it? I mean, the requirements do seem to be rather broad, as in, ridiculously vague. Buy a .22 for keeping pests out of the garden and youre in the same league as Ahmadinejad as far as some six-figure, greasy bureaucrat in U.S. officialdom is concerned. Maybe its not worth bothering to be an official terrorist.

    I was interviewed? When? I don’t recall any interview….

    But I did by ammo at the gun show today. 🙂

    Unfortunately it will never lose its meaning of “something the government can throw you in jail for”.

    If by “soon” you meant 2010, I’d agree with you.
