    Communists Now Least Threatening Group In U.S.

    WASHINGTON, DC–According to a report released Tuesday by the Pentagon, Communists rank last on a list of 238 threats to national security. "Communists may now safely be ignored," Secretary of Defense William Cohen said. "The Red Menace has been surpassed by militia groups, religious extremists, ecoterrorists, cybercriminals, Hollywood producers, and angry drivers." Other groups deemed more threatening than Communists include rap-metal bands (#96), escaped zoo animals (#202), and Belgians (#237).

      •  FWIW, it is old Karl's birthday today (0+ / 0-)

        born May 5, 1818.  And also FWIW, both of his grandfathers were, IIRC, rabbis.

        do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?
