Big Bother Strikes Again

Don’t be fooled people. Big Bother is feeding you more lies.

All the hubbub about how the feds foiled a terrorist plot in 2002 to blow up the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles has nothing to do with wiretapping. It also has yet to be solidified as an actual threat. The mayor of LA, Antonio Villaraigosa, said that all this was news to him. You would expect someone – ANYONE – from the government to contact him with news about a building in his city exploding. But no one did. And Big Bother won’t marry the two ideas – he just lets it out there for you to conclude.

I say, don’t buy it.

It’s very convenient that this supposedly happened almost 4 years ago and the public is just now finding out about it. True, the government keeps secrets all the time. But it is interesting that this story sees the light of day just as Big Bother is pushing his agenda forward.

The alleged plot was derailed when a Southeast Asian nation arrested major Al Qaeda operatives. Staying forever vague, Big Bother named neither the Southeast Asian nation that assisted, nor the names of the operatives who were arrested. Why is this thing such a secret??

The whole thing makes me recall the 2004 post-reelection image that stated "How can 59,017,382 Americans Be So Wrong?" The administration is counting on that number to get through. I can only pray that the number is shrinking day by day, as Americans admit the mistake they made and suffer the consequences.
