The War on Terror Funds, Part II


The War on Terror Funds continues.

D.C. at Low Risk Of Attack, Says Federal Agency

From the WaPo: Not "The Onion."
The Department of Homeland Security has ranked the District in a low-risk category of terrorist attack or catastrophe, putting it in the bottom 25 percent of U.S. states and territories, as part of a decision that will cost the city millions in anti-terror funds, according to city and federal officials.

The news came as irate officials from New York and Washington demanded explanations for why the department slashed funds in a separate urban anti-terrorism program by 40 percent for the metropolitan areas hit hardest by the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

"It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out these are two cities still at risk," said D.C. Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey.
In the words of the immortal Bugs Bunny, "Ain't it the trute!"

(Having said that...we could use a few brian surgeons in the exec branch, couldn't we?)
"Are you going to tell me Rhode Island should get more money than the District of Columbia?" the chief sputtered in an interview on Washington Post Radio.

Everybody knows that the evildoers hate that Friendly's in Pawtucket.
Although the District is home to the White House, the Capitol, FBI headquarters and many national monuments, it received a smaller state grant than Montana, Hawaii and Utah.

Each of them received $4.5 million, as did Rhode Island.
Good. I happen to know that the evildoers hate the entire town of Cedar City, Utah.

And its Shakespeare Festival.

Other evildoer targets - bigger targets than the ones in NY and D.C:

1. The Blake's Lotaburger on Menaul (near Pennsylvania) in Albuquerque.

2. The Wisconsin Dells (the evildoers want the duck boats).

3. "Java the Hut" in Driggs, ID.

4. Wall Drug.

5. The World's Tallest Thermometer in Baker, CA (the current temp is 94F).

Congratulations to all the individuals & companies who do business with Homeland Security!

And remember, citizens: You can never be...too secure!

More later...
