Gov't runs a racquet: "I am coming to you"

"You will explode in two minutes!"

Solomon Shinerock. Special bulletin just for you: Those IDs the government is trying to push on the people is a clear and direct result and reason for 9/11. Of course that is just a small part of a bigger picture, but anyway... as far as motivation for attacking our own country....

"'It certainly seems to be an effort by the federal government to create compliance with REAL ID whether states have an interest in doing so or not," said Don Cookson, spokesman for the Maine secretary of state's office.

The Sept. 11 attacks were the main motivation for the changes: The hijacker-pilot who flew into the Pentagon, Hani Hanjour, had four driver's licenses and ID cards from three states. [one of which survived the fiery inferno to positively ID him!]

The Homeland Security Department and other officials say the only way to ensure an ID is safe is to check it against secure government data; critics such as the ACLU say that creates a system that is more likely to be infiltrated and have its personal data pilfered."

In other related news, the government is trying to create reasons to go to war with Iran:

"I am coming to you. You will explode in two minutes!" wait.. where's John Stewart on this one? Ahh... there he is.

Now about this comical "threat" the (supposedly) Iranians made. Dan Schmolze, the man who always has a sharp sense for common sense in affairs like this--do you really think this audio is legit!? I trust Secretary of Defense Robert Gates about as far as I can throw him and Donald Rumsfeld together.

Bush says: "Iran is a threat to world peace." Uhhh... no... last time I checked Bush was a threat to world peace.

on a lighter note...
Why there's no money to help me go to college :( it all went into high falutin' fernature.

Definitely an amusing situation with the Hormuz thing. Whether or not you believe the recording is legit (and apparently the Navy sailors say the "threatening" message may not have come from the boats), there's no doubt the "incident" is being pretty much concocted out of thin air. No big secret that Bush wants to get it on with Iran. Also no big secret that his administration is perfectly willing to invent reasons for going to war. Still, I don't think it's ever going to happen, what with everyone else being ardently opposed to it (including the military leadership).

I agree its highly doubtful, although it would be par for the course to fund some fool ass armed opposition party to in and take the bullets for us.

And about the Real ID thing - no way, not even a prayer. There's a big difference between spinning something to support your agenda and risking criminal liability to make something happen that might support your agenda, if spun. You give these goons way too much credit. Sure, they're creepy power grabbers, but that's where it ends.
