It would have been laughable if it weren't so pathetic:  There was Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- on CNN, 7:30 pm, Sunday -- claiming to have saved New York City from a terrorist plot to wreak destruction of something or other with a kit that could fit into a cigar box.  But all was now safe, the "terrorist" having been apprehended by New York's finest and America's largest city spared replication of the 911 attack.
The terror kit consisted of a small section of pipe, the face of a travel alarm clock and some quite tiny undefinable pieces of hardware.  All this was presided over by the so serious Mayor and his grim staff of "experts."  And the federal agencies, he advised, had never been advised of this suspect, apparently because Bloomberg Inc. were confident that they could spare Manhattan another 911 type disaster all by themselves, as testified by his District Attorney, Bloomberg's anti-terrorism expert and the good Mayor himself.
Mayor Bloomberg announced inexplicably that on the one hand this was a "lone wolf effort," and on the other hand connected with al Qaida.   And his people had been surveiling the terrorist's behavior for a year or two, a threat so serious that the perpetrator had at one time or another planned to change his name to Osama Housain.  That would have been great cover, and can you imagine anything more damnable?
But it doesn't end there.  To prove how destructive the "terrorist's" arsenal could be, the good Mayor advised that his people had replicated the kit, then showed the audience a film of a small car they placed it in, and when activated it did indeed pop off the roof of the compact and open wide its doors.  Talk about weapons of mass destruction!
Now, why you may well ask, on prime time television, are we to be treated to this comic opera?  Could it be anything else but a diversion from the Mayor's thuggish efforts to put down the OWS presence in lower Manhattan and to cast the shadow of danger, even terrorism over its endeavor, and to elevate the Mayor as the savior of law, order, and the American way?  Yes, indeed.
What is the lesson for us beyond Mayor Bloomberg's exposing himself not only as a missionary of privilege and power, and now also quite the buffoon, however sincere?  The lesson is that we citizens need to be a lot more careful about whom we vote for regardless of our partisan persuasions, and perhaps that neither of the current two major options serves our best interests.
Vive le OWS.

Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
