Well, that would have sucked!

Mohamed Mohamud (is that like Duran Duran?). A twisted teen douche bag who thought it would be grand to blow up a bunch of families at a tree lighting ceremony. Funny to know that you and yours were the target of a murderer. Thought it was a good way to show his faith - not faithful enough to blow himself up too, but hey he was just a weekend jihadist.

Interesting perspectives around Bridgetown.
  • Fire bomb his mosque (no doubt a pickup and some beer were involved with this at some level)
  • Host a candlelight vigil at his damaged mosque to show support for religious freedom
  • Station a lot more police around the transit centers.
  • Have a really bad week if you look or dress a certain way carrying a backpack.
  • Call it entrapment when he remote triggered his dud bomb from the safety of Union Station. (He should have suspected something was amiss when he found Doris Day parking downtown.)
  • Rail that Portland quit the joint terrorism task force
  • Rail that it’s an FBI conspiracy to punish us for quitting the joint task force
  • Complain that the FBI sure went through all the motions to prove this was a legit attempt.
  • Complain that this is the same FBI that framed an odd duck lawyer in town for the Madrid bombings
  • Complain that the mayor was at the ceremony and was never informed that he was in absolutely no danger (well, at least from the bomber guy...)
  • Wonder why in 2010 we still let large windowless vans park next to huge public affairs (particularly ones with six 55 gallon drums in the back).
  • Wonder who sold six 55 gallon drums to a angry looking teenager.
  • We are catching the Kramer lookalike shoe bombers and the idiot kids - but what about the real dudes who aren’t complete idiots?
  • Portland! are you kidding me? So much for being a city known for acceptance of most anything. We do draw the line for acceptable behavior somewhere north of corpse strewn streets.
  • If it had been real, coming off an airline gropefest to find out that all that security would have just meant you wasted 30 minutes of your last day...

Yes, just like Duran Duran. Only his music sucked less.

I get scared talking to people (ultraconservative types) that want to round up anyone mid-eastern and put them in a camp.
I had to explain to a kid just the other day that if we did that with all terrorist groups, crazy white boys like him and me would also be rounded up due to McVeigh and his nuttiness. I'm not sure if I made a point or not.

But there's always some nutjobs willing to blow people up and such.

Guess that's why the FBI and the ATF and such are THERE!

I am going to blow up your blog. You have blasphemed my God the Dung Beetle with your picture.

I have been full of shit as long as I can remember. And if you were full of shit, you would be able to discern that a depiction of DB is the turd worst sin. -Or if you're coprophilic the turd wurst sin-.

BTW, It is only when you are full of shit, the holy shit, that you will be able to survive the poocopalypse.

Well Harry - it appears at last that I have been dung in by my lack of spiritual awareness...
