A 17-year-old Eagle Scout in upstate New York says he follows the Boy Scout motto, "be prepared." He stocked his care with a sleeping bag, water, a ready-to-eat meal and .... a 2 inch pocketknife. The knife was given to him by his grandfather, a police chief in a nearby town. The knife was always locked in his car in case of emergency.
A Delaware first grader named Zachary Christie brought a piece of camping equipment to school to eat his lunch with. It was a combination spoon, fork and knife.
Fortunately, our nation has decided to stop messing around with these needless foreign wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And we are now enlightened, so we no longer need to commit the sin of racial profiling, particularly against Muslim men carrying bombs, knives and other weapons. If we had been distracted by all these things that Bush was distracted with, we might never have caught these two terrorists-in-the-making.
You can all sleep well, tonight, though. Christie (who should be jailed just for having the name "Christ" as a part of his last name) was ordered to spend 45 days in his districts' alternative school for troublemakers. A sentence that was way too light, if you ask me. I'm not sure why they didn't go for the throat and make him watch Obama's hour-long health care speech and then sing "Mmm mmm mmm; Barack Hussein Obama."
The 17 year-old Eagle Scout, Matthew Whalen, a senior at Lansingburgh Senior High School was immediately suspended. The police were called, but the cop told school officials "he's not breaking any laws, so I can't arrest him." Wimpy cops. Whalen's initial suspension of 5 days was increased by an additional 15 days when he appeared in a school hearing and admitted that he did indeed have a knife locked in his car which he never intended to use and which he did not have access to during school.
Again, this young terrorist got off way too lightly. Without the strictest of punishments, there's no telling what he might have done next. He might have created a stink bomb in chemistry class or something. Maybe even hijacked a paper airplane and crashed it into the teacher's desk. There's no telling what kind of destruction and havoc may have been wreaked by these two delinquents.
Thank God, Obama is on the job.
.... oops. I mean, thank Allah.
