Getting On The List

As easy as it is to get on to a government "list" of suspect people, I would think that anyone who hasn't by now has no call at all to call himself a "free thinker", or whatever people who disagree with the government call themselves nowadays.

Reputedly, a memo has come down, from J-Nap herself stating:
It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.
So quit complaining, drop your pants, and do the antler dance* through the gate.

*An SNL reference. Look it up.

Well, since I've already been branded as a domestic terrorist, I have to wonder whether I've been promoted or demoted.

I'll opt out of the antler dance. The fish slapping dance would be more fun anyway.

I suppose, these days, I can be arrested for even the joking suggestion that Ms. Napolitano ought to be slapped with a large walleye. (Besides which, who'd want to risk a perfectly good fish.)

Domestic extremist sounds a lot more innocuous than domestic terrorist. I suppose it's a "gateway designation".

I suppose there's a hierarchy:
1. Domestic moderate
2. domestic nuisance
3. domestic extremist
4. domestic terrorist

There really needs to be one more designation to harmonize the list with the terror alert levels.

Domestic sheep?

That'll work. The notification will be the playing of "Sheep May Safely Graze", which will be sung in government corridors as "We May Safely Feed".
