  •  I'm an antiwar terrorist. My brother is a (22+ / 0-)

    survivalist terrorist.  My sister is an alternative lifestyle terrorist.  My daughter is a human rights terrorist.  My granddaughter looks like she's turning out to be an environmental terrorist, she loves the forests and rivers.  
    The word terrorist is being used against all of us.  It's a label that's become justification for anything the government wants to justify including full spectrum spying on the entire fucking world.  But that's not what the spying is about.  That's not what the War OF Terror is about.  That's not what labeling someone an "environmental terrorist" is about.   People fight back against oppression, corporate crimes and injustice and government criminality and they're called terrorists.  As long as the people fall for that, there can be no end.  It's obviously becoming more pervasive, more ingrained as we go along.  The War OF Terror opened the floodgates to Orwell's vision.  Something is going to have to be done about this terrorist/terrorism thing.  Maybe along the lines of what happened after WWI and WWII.  International laws were passed.  It was supposed to be "never again".  But the laws have been broken and are being broken as we speak.  Eventually the human race is going to have to try that again.

    •  hey we have 'water terrorists'! (6+ / 0-)

      I'm hoping the official in the tape is just stump stupid,or just too lazy to do his job, but he does couch their concerns as something (from what he knows) classified as 'terrorism' by Homeland Security.

      Concerned about the high levels of arsenic in your water, or perhaps the known levels of radioactive contamination? Well you must be a terrorist, according to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Homeland Security, who consider issuing such complaints to be classified under terrorist activity.

      It all started when Tennessee residents in Maury County recorded an exchange with the deputy director from the state’s environmental entity TDEC, who issued a warning that complaining about low quality tap water could put you in Guantanamo. As you can hear from the video below, deputy director Sherwin Smith explains to a group of residents that issuing a complaint over the water supply can be considered an act of terrorism by Homeland Security.
