This chap happens to write occasionally for these chaps - and through the interwebs today came a fluttering an article entitled … Dear Students - What You Post Can Wreck Your Career Naturally, the chap had something to say - but resisted his immediate response - going with a more serious angle - saving the humor - with an even more serious point for this fine organ. Unfortunately, I think that the humor would have been missed over there since dear old Ted has not been mentioned much of late … but back in thr late 90s he was all over the news, since I am of course writing of Ted Kaczynski - the Unabomber who indeed - should anybody enquire - would probably vouch that
‘What You Post Can Wreck Your Career’.
I see what you did there …
But there’s more - remember I write of the halcyon days of the late 90s - pre 911 - when terrorism was actually on occasions conducted by white people. We know it was - because Ted is described as a ‘domestic terrorist’. And of course, how can we forget Timothy McVeigh - the man behind the truck bomb that killed 168 people in Oklahoma in 1995 - he too is referenced as a domestic terrorist. Fast Forward To 2017 … when did you last here of a domestic terrorist attacking anything in America? No - me neither. All terrorists are now either mentally ill or jihadists. Isn’t that weird? Even weirder is that The Heritage Foundation reports that there have been 60 Terrorist Plots Since 9/11. This chap thought it a lot - so he popped over to have a read …
Key Takeaways - There have been at least 60 Islamist-inspired terrorist plots against the homeland since 9/11. - Of the 60 plots, 49 could be considered homegrown terror plots.
Let me translate - according to the Heritage Foundation there has not been a single Islamist-inspired terrorist plot in the USA in the past 16 years - and yet, and yet … what am I missing … other than we are talking about the Heritage Foundation! Do you enjoy our meanderings through the rabbit holes of life?
