Welcome To The U.S.

Aren't stat logs wonderful things? Hello and welcome to whoever it is at the US Department of State that finds my blog so interesting.

Their mission statement, should you choose to read it, states that they wish to: "Create a more secure, democratic, and prosperous world for the benefit of the American people and the international community."

Nice how the rest of the world is just sort of tacked on the end there. And you can literally see the rest of that sentence just hanging - "...by any means necessary even if is based on lies and propoganda and involves the slaughter of thousands of innocent people."

Actually the person came via here - scroll down, buried at the bottom of page - which means some naughty little worker is slacking off and not doing very important security things.

I just got a really sweet card from a friend in California, which had a couple of photos of her little girl in there. Wrapped around the entire thing is a big green sticker, courtesy of the US Department of Homeland Security. Because pictures of babies are the new form of terror you know.

Another friend of mine teaches at a school in Virginia. They were evacuated yesterday because one of the students threatened to litter the school with blood, bones and bodies. Nice.
