Stupidity In The Public Eye

Homeland Security. Not a horrible idea. And then, there are the little things, the idiots enforcing it that make the program look bad. For instance, there's the recent story of fish that threatened national security, a situation where, in the interest of National Security, the airport screeners wouldn't allow a fish in a baggie on a plane. Yep, your tax dollars in action.

Speaking of National Security, the FBI is urging police to watch for people carrying almanacs, since terrorists may use almanacs "to assist with target selection and pre-operational planning." And, of course, no NORMAL person would read an almanac for it's INFORMATION as a REFERENCE BOOK. What's next? Since terrorists could use cell phones to pinpoint attacks, should we watch all cell phone users? I've heard that they occasionally drive cars to or from an attack...we better watch out for car drivers as well. And, wait, don't most of them BREATHE? Oh my!

Yes, these are the idiots that make the government look bad (and believe me, it doesn't need any outside help). However, surely selling decommissioned aircraft carriers on eBay is perfectly fine. No terrorist would DREAM of buying one and searching for the weakest part. Why, that would just be plain SILLY.
