Which is More Dangerous?

”Interesting Times”

Thing One:

Three Afghan National Army soldiers, who were in Massachusetts for training, have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall [in Hyannis] … Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar … arrived in the United States on September 11 for Exercise Regional Cooperation

…incidentally

Earlier this month, two Afghan police officers training with the DEA wandered off during a sightseeing trip to Georgetown … [they were found and sent home]

Thing Two:

Kyle Bradford, 13, shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn’t like the cheese sandwich he was given by the cafeteria…

“It seemed like he couldn’t get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn’t really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn’t eat it,”

*b00M* – Detention

“We have a poooolicy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of saaaafety and liabiiiility we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals,”

    Well as long as they aren’t sharing a lunch what’s the problem?

    When the stupid gets to this point it heartens me to know that the system is about to become overloaded from the decades-long blizzard of regulation that’s layered so deeply upon the economy.

    When potential terrorists are allowed to “wander off” and the national border is left wide open due to presidential party politics you know the end must be nearer.

    The intellectual laziness of the progs topped with their cultural arrogance leads us to this point of prosecuting children and American values while allowing hardened soldiers free rein to roam amid our most densely populated state. Perfect.

    Regarding the terrorists: The Obama administration claims they were “vetted”. Apparently “vetted” means “showed they would be capable of going off the radar successfully until their mission is carried out.

    Regarding the students: The government will stop at nothing to eliminate charity and good will from society.

    Remember the old days, when *Monday* was bad just because it was *Monday*?

    The two men – Mohammad Yasin Ataye, 22, and Mohd Naweed Samimi, 24 – were found safe somewhere outside of D.C., but officials would not say exactly where.

    but local TV is saying they were found in Buffalo. Buffalo‽
    (Knew that was going to come in handy.)
    ‽‽‽‽‽

    #12, you mean more than the Buffalo Six? Go figure.

    We ARE repeating Vietnam all over. Send in too few, under the command of strange people who do not have the soldiers’ nor the country’s interests at heart, and bad things will happen all over.

    Local radio here is saying they were found at the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe they were meeting some like minded folks in Canada. Blowing up the Falls?
    Sidenote – heard their fingerprints were ‘waved’ on their passports. ??? So no proof the man with the mustache is the one you’re looking for. ???

    In other news, the first of American troops have reached Liberia, and it has just been announced that the world’s supply of effective ebola drugs is depleted and will take months to restock.

    As far as the students lunch it’s a way of indoctrinating the young to step to their drums not the students own. Now why would that be important??? I had lunch with the grand daughter and the lunch room supervised was like the Nazi prison guard.

    In other food-related news:

    PETA vs. Islam

    It turned out just as you’d expect. The “religion of peace” folks said, “We appreciate your suggestion, and well take it under advisement.” Then they went on their peaceful way to worship in peace.

    Actually, I think that last part is true. They did worship in peace– this time. I’m still waiting for the Pussy Riot mosque sing-in. I wonder how that one turns out…
