Hey Mr. Terrorist. Fuck you!
I know what your thinking, "I've got those Americans scared to fly on airplanes."
Tomorrow I'm taking my family on a long international plane flight and we aren't scared at all. We are going to have a great time, smile, eat, drink, and laugh a lot, then come home safe and sound.
I refuse to be intimidated by your pathetic attempts to terrorize me. It will take great deal more to scare Americans than what you've done so far. In fact, I doubt you can really scare us. You might make us more determined or angry, but we certainly aren't scared.
An Average American
Special note to American readers:
If you are one of those nervous nellies that has their undies in a bind over the latest plots and is considering avoiding air travel due to these wingnuts, stop it.
We are Americans.
We stood up against the mightiest country on Earth to win our independence 200+ years ago.
We stood up against the Axis powers to defend the very concept of freedom in World War II.
We stood up against the Soviet Union staring down nuclear oblivion to win the Cold War.
Yes, some of our leaders have poor judgement we do some silly things like take off our shoes in airports and invade the wrong country, but the average American knows the truth. America and our founding principles will endure any assault or act against us.
So stop being afraid. Stop wringing your hands and worrying. Stop watching the fearmongering passed off as news.
When you see our Fellow Americans acting scared, it's your duty to tell them to stop acting like children. It's embarassing to see some of these confused people actually changing their plans out of irrational fear of these cowardly terrorists.
President Roosevelt said it best, "So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."
Life is good. Go out and live. Give the finger to the terrorists.Posted by michael at August 16, 2006 07:35 PM
