    Oh, goody, goody, we have a new illness ....

    The Examiner: Saudi student charged in bizzare mid-air rant indicted

    No doubt Nappy & Pissy will soon be hiring hundreds, even thousands, of certified SJS diagnosticians to protect our nations airports and save us from these fruitcakes.

    What a crock of (expletive deleted). Unbelievable. Is there nothing too outlandish for these "security" freaks??

    And Daniel Pipes. I remember him well from the Commie-baiting days. He's always looking for some bogeyman or other.

    I'm going to send this to my mailing list, not that most of them will bat an eye.

    but...but...I thought TSA said the most recent incident wasn't a security it's a full-fledged syndrome? Next thing you know it's going to be disability benefits.
    Seriously thought, 6 freaking incidents does not a syndrome make -

    Daniel Pipes is an (expletive deleted). Go over and read his egotistical blog entry. But for dozens of years he's been a darling of the mainstream media, appearing as an "expert" on all sorts of news programs. Of course, because he toes the approved party line.

    Never mind that a real psychological professional would refer to this in more neutral terms like "Sudden-onset religious aggression disorder" or something to that effect. "Sudden Jihad" is blatantly obviously a phrase chosen for its emotional impact and scare factor. Like "Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome." Oh, no, it's severe AND acute? START BEING AFRAID!

  9. But I kind of love that they have to resort to creating a disorder to explain away their own uselessness in these situations. That's what it is -- real security is in the hands of the passengers, not them.

    I read this and wondered, is it April 1st?
