Is Terror Alert Level Ernie Around the Corner?

Terror Alert Level According the the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON – The U.S. is at great risk for more terrorist attacks because Congress and the White House have failed to enact several strong security measures, members of the former Sept. 11 commission said Sunday.

Considering that both major political parties predict an immediate terrorist attack, it must be so:

“More than four years after 9/11 … people are not paying attention,” the former Republican governor of New Jersey said. “God help us if we have another attack.”

Added Lee Hamilton, the former Democratic vice chairman of the commission: “We believe that another attack will occur. It’s not a question of if. We are not as well-prepared as we should be.”

It seems about time for another rush on plastic sheets and duct tape as we prepare to elevate our official Terror Alert Level from Bert to Ernie.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. This seems a lot more like the 9/11 commission members trying to generate publicity for themselves. Actually going through the “report” itself, it’s just a summary of the “grades” that they gave in their last three reports.
