wink The Terrorist Alert System Reminds Me Of...

The "Bear Patrol" episode of "The Simpsons," which originally aired on May 5, 1996.

Homer: "Not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol must be working like a charm."
Lisa: "That's specious reasoning, Dad."
Homer: "Thank you, dear."
Lisa: "By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away."
Homer: "Oh, how does it work?"
Lisa: "It doesn't work."
Homer: "Uh-huh."
Lisa: "It's just a stupid rock."
Homer: "Uh-huh."
Lisa: "But I don't see any tigers around, do you?"
Homer: "Lisa, I want to buy your rock."

Okay...so that is a bit of dark humor, but do tell me that others can see the connection?

Looks like bad news for the "Impson" family....

Well, it does seem to have some resemblance. I guess it'll do a great job of preventing terrorism... at least until the next terrorist attack.

Terrorists must have an unusual aversion to the color orange.

haha, thats one of the best episodes ever.

because of one bear they get a WHOLE patrol to make sure no more come to town including of all things a STEALTH BOMBER. all that shit would terribly expensive but they got it to only cost an extra five bucks (correct me im wrong) to their taxes, so naturally all of springfield revolts.

brilliant!

ya know u little naysayers, guess what?
your hero Bubba Clinton last nite on Larry King said it was a 'necessary evil' having "Homeland Security Alerts".

nevermind, stay in your smug comfortable postures.
i will celebrate in the fact everyday we dont wake up to a 9-11 or similar attack that we are continuing to win this war on terror.

continue to prattle on.

I think you need to lighten up, Mr. Diamond. I guess whomever said that a Republican had a sense of humor?

I never made a judgment call on the terrorist alert system, now did I? I just told you what it reminded me of. I got the idea after John Ashcroft said that the terrorist alert system deters terrorists; and I thought to myself: how would he know that?

And the fact that I don't do drugs means we're winning that War on Drugs too.

Just admit that melon made a clever analogy. It's funny because its true. No one in here has actually criticized the system or anyone involved with it.
