2012: Second Phase of Obama's High Speed Rail Plan Implemented As Al Qaeda Just Happens To Get Surface-to-Air Missiles!

2011: 20,000 Modern SAMS disappeared from Libyan Arms Depots...  As the plucky bands of Libyan freedom fighters (who are they again?) made them their first choice of loot.
Today, the nation's airlines continue to mothball their fleets in the face of a continued drop-off in demand...
...following the inexplicable but certainly completely coincidental and unrelated* destruction of three commercial jets at LAX, JFK, and Chicago-Midway airports... (*White House Press Office, 6/13/2012)

Leading to a crush of passenger demand on the nation's aging rail system as people return to the older form of long-distance travel.
In a dynamic and farsighted move, President Obama calls for new programs of high speed rail "to link everyone, everywhere in the nation, every hour of every day."
"Now some people say this can't be done," the President added.  "Some people say it's not physically practical.  Some people say it's just too darned expensive to do.  But I say we can do this and still add less than seven trillion dollars to the deficit."
White house spokesman Jay Carney added on background, "the thing is, everybody knows rail just isn't competitve with the automobile and flying as transportation, and that's true.  But remember the important advantage:  it also costs more.  So since way fewer people can afford to use it, we actually have to add way less carrying capacity than you might think, since people simply won't be moving."

Meanwhile Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced that he would be calling for Congress to pass an additional 25% levy on gasoline usage on top of the GM/Onstar Mileage Tax Act "which should substantially offset a very measurable part of this expense by the second or third year of President Obama's fourth term."  This comes on top of the Senate Democrats' push for a "Stuff Tax," i.e., an annual surcharge on "people's stuff."  "Everybody has something worth taxing," said MA Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren.

First thought: ROTFLMAO!!

Second thought: Like all good humor, there's some truth in there.

Last thought: It's really sad/scary that the State of Our Nation has gotten to a point where this even comes up.

Next Al Qaeda terrorist weapon!

Dandapani, while Al Qaeda likes to use explosives it's a sure bet that derailing a train carrying something that could aid them is coming...right before the big bang.

I'm surprised they haven't struck American rail lines so far.

I was thinking with the push for rail and all... Al Qaeda is certainly adaptable. Think underwear bomber.

Is that Ron Paul running away from the plane?

Dandapani, now I understand. The terrorist hide bombs in shoes, underwear, but not their turbans. Ever wonder why?

I think one of the one of the latest late Afghani tearists was reported as having used his turban.
