it has come to my attention

that they
seem to
be stupidly
serious

about
homeland security

yes
i
used the
stupid word

does anyone
remember
duck and cover?

here's the video

so
it got me thinking
that
they
yet again
are trying to raise
another fear-based
generation

and it's
time
we put
a stop
to
this shit
once and
for all!

and now for something completely different : SafeNow

I remember duck and cover and it was about the time I started worrying that my parents would die. I think it must have been because they were at home and not at school ducking and covering. Just a kid trying to figure out the death trap they kept talking about. I don't think we can change "them" but we can educate our children to recognize propaganda.

Oh, I remember duck & cover.

I agree with mary. let's raise our kids to recognize this BS for what it is!!!

Homeland Security is just an excuse to raise another army.

I remember watching some made for tv movie about nuclear war when I was a kid (the day after or something like that) and literally worrying for years later

That Safenow link was hilarious though!!

"Homeland Security is just an excuse to raise another army."

I agree, and it is so stupid.

Look out your window, see any fighting? No?

Get on with your day then because there is nothing you can do about what the fucking monkeys are doing.

As long as the fighting is somewhere else we can just be thankful for that.

Even if it came to my town I wouldn't fear it. I would just hunker down and deal with it.

Hell, I've been putting up with these monkeys for thousands of years.

The video is hilarious and I don't think I've seen it before, although we had a whole lot of that in elementary school. They also thought we could escape the bomb by marching out to the football field!

Another fear-based society, yes, that is what they are trying to do...

But still, have a good weekend! :-)
