There is no better way to control human activity.
The Islamists continue with their version of winning.
For years we have endured the growing personal invasions into our privacy in our communications and our travels. The latter compounded by the rampant moronity of overpaid security guards with “authoritah” feeling up little old ladies, the handicapped, and little kids to avoid the appearance of racial or ethnic ‘bias.’
Our way of life has changed, and our liberty has been indeed exchanged for a modicum of security. Ironically, at the same time admitting more of the problem into our communities; the very ideology that has destroyed nations, slaughtered innocents, and subjugated women and men for 1400 years.
Because we are enlightened, and ‘compassionate.’ And now Michigan, somehow appears to recognize it is at risk, missing that particular ‘irony’ even while it embraces the potential for more of the same.
It should come as no surprise that the Mackinac Bridge authority has determined “Nous sommes Français”.
” The Mackinac Bridge will be closed to most vehicle traffic the morning of Labor Day. The bridge authority made that decision today. Their concern was the risk of a terrorist attack on the Labor Day bridge walk, which attracts thousands of people.
The decision means no vehicles will be allowed to cross the bridge from 6:30 a.m. to noon except for buses and emergency vehicles. “
The decision is said to have been made this early so that appropriate plans can be made.
To seek alternative routes for the five hour inconvenience?
Quite obviously, authorities are concerned with [people of a particular persuasion] screaming Aluhah Akhbar and driving mercilessly through the throngs of those celebrating the end of summer. In fact, I’ll bet they will be very comfortable while they weed out people of certain ethnic heritage from driving the “Buses and emergency vehicles” highlighted in bold above. Or not.
Of course, if there is some type of bizarre denial that it would likely be an Islamic fueled Death Race over the mighty Mac as the problem, then we have indeed come very far in two ways. Firstly, that we recognize our culture of death, perpetrated through abortions and an unrepentant entertainment industry has cheapened life so much we know that no-one cares anymore. Secondly, (and most likely) that our protecting class of government employee is too stupid to be able to identify the greatest risks we face in any given situation.
Truth be told, it’s the elephant in the room.
Uncomfortable as it might be to say, we must recognize that even our government folk are not that ignorant. Perhaps the broader collective are, but not those who are charged with our safety. And they are afraid.
And they/we do what is expected.
We cower like beaten children. We change our traditions to meet new ‘expectations.’ We predictably act in a way that is self defeating. On a planet of billions of people, only a few of the lunatic’s acts, done under the authority of a particular ‘religion,’ have altered how we live our lives.
We no longer maintain efficiency throughout a process such as boarding mass transit. We can no longer park close to certain buildings. And we must now watch as a Michigan tradition ‘necessarily’ displaces normal commerce because we are quite aware that the beast is with us, and is real.
Jason, as much as I'm really going to hate to say this, this IS some validity for their concerns.
I get some material from some friends that I'm not exactly supposed to be seeing. Given what I do for a living...fore warned is fore armed and that sort of thing.
The first has to do with the Islamic terrorist attack in Germany last Christmas.
It details some facts that the MSM choose NOT to report to the public (like how a Islamic terrorist even got his hands on a truck in the first place) . Granted this problem can easily be mitigated by allowing Drivers to carry, but most companies hate this idea and cite some non-existent federal rule saying so.
On a side note, my safety guy absolutely hates it when I ask him to cite the specific regulation because we both know the answer.
The second has to do with recent chatter about this being the next method to get on the 6 O' clock News (and here, too). It's a safe bet that if I'm seeing this, the MSP or whomever is in charge of organizing security for Labor Day has also seen it.
That been said, Lil' Bush had a valid point several years back about the terrorists winning by taking away our freedoms.
I, and I'll go out on a limb here and say better than 99% of Drivers out there, just want to do our jobs and go home.
Resources can be better spent profiling and detaining when necessary that fraction of a percent that is more inclined to do so, rather than infringing the rights of the majority of us who don't!
The biggest problem as I see it, and Jason you touched on it--is taking away our ability to be responsible for our own safety, health and well-being. The false guise of public safety, has indeed made us extremely unsafe--using fear to compel mass compliance. The early notice of the bridge vehicle ban, is an announcement to the world to: 1. stay home; and, 2. "we've heard chatter that this Labor Day event is being targeted and we can't state it outright, so we'll send a subtle message to the public and we really hope you can read between the lines on this alert".
Leave it to a shitlib governor to originate a gay tradition for Boobus Michiganderus to obstruct vehicular traffic.
