Al Qaeda, you know what you’ve done to America? You’ve made us indifferent. You want to set off another bomb? Yeah, okay. Whatever. We’re so used to the domestic battering that resulted from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that sucked up all the disposable cash that we’re numb.
If we’re lucky, FEMA has enough funding left to come in and clean up whatever’s left.
I saw the local police chief on my teevee this morning, talking about how he was briefed by the FBI on the possibility of an attack in Philadelphia — even though they have no information that indicates we’re a target. But it’s very, very important that we are very, very scared.
Al Qaeda, what can you do to us that makes our lives worse? No jobs, no money, no hope. No government that’s willing to help us, they only want to help the other countries where we’re at war. Always enough money for war and the profiteers.
That’s what your boy Osama wanted to do: He wanted to bleed our economy dry, the way he did the Soviets. Congratulations, you did it! Anything you do at this point is just gilding the lily.
But if you do bomb us, maybe they’ll finally find the money to help right here at home. Silver lining!
