“as long as it keeps us safe”

Today the big story is that it's September 9th. Whoop di diddly doo. Also, there was an alert which caused Washing Tundy Sea and New Dork to be, how shall I say it, under no-rights martial law. And they got at least one FumDuck to say "I don't mind as long as it keeps people safe". The tip on which they were operating has still so far yielded no identification of the three terrorists who are allegedly right now allegedly stalking the streets of America waiting to blow people up.

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren't going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery. 16258
