"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...
