Ignorance is not bliss

Welcome to The Audacity Of Ignorance blog.  

Here is a classic case that the Obama administration is doing.  They are renaming things…this is important…why because of statistics, because of ‘white-washing’ what is really going on and because it allows them to classify almost anything as a “man-caused disaster”.

A recent inverview by Spiegel:

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

Semantics…that is awful!  What is worse is that they can now classify almost anything as a “man-caused disaster” and attack it with the Homeland Security.  Forest Fires, Global Warming, Oil Spills, a car crashing into a building (no bomb…just brake failure), oh and don’t forget bloggers and those right-wing wackos that Napolitano warns us about.  You know, the proud young men and women returning from the War on “man-caused disaster” in Iraq her report referred to as  “the report on right wing extremists concludes that returning soldiers could be terrorist threats

Ignorance is not bliss…it is dangerous!
