I was reading through some of my older Adequacy stories this morning, and encountered something rather sinister.

Last fall I wrote a story called "Happy Labor Day -- Now Get Lost", which told the truth about labor unions and how they're wrecking America. The eerie passage follows:
America is a capitalist, Christian nation, and our survival revolves around our ability to create wealth and to provide for ourselves. It can therefore be said that an attack on our wealth creation potential is an attack on America itself. When the camel jockeys blew up the World Trade Center, they attacked our nation and did millions of dollars worth of damage. But is a labor strike orchestrated by union bosses any different, from a conceptual point of view?
Now, in light of recent events, this may not seem to be a particularly controversial statement. But here's the thing: it was written on September 4, 2001 .. just a week or so before the events of 9/11.

you were most probably talking about the camel jockeys who blew up the basement of the WTC with big truck bombs. If you were meaning the 11/9 camel jockeys, you would've said "knocked down" rather than "blew up". "flattened", even. "demolished", perhaps. "struck a blow for Allah". I could go on, you know...

This clearly indicates that the War on Terror should be extended to those domestic terrorists we call labor unions.<p>

The sooner we rid ourselves of Big Labor the better off we'll all be.

I am sending this link to my local congressman to see if he thinks that this is too eerie to be a coincidence. For all I know you should be next to Zacarias Moussaoui when he gets hung from a ceiling fan by his scrotum and swung around until he has a brain hemorrhage and blood comes out of every orifice in his body.

Ok, who picked the flower???

Not really.

Couple weeks before The Event me and a bunch of friends were discussing vulnerabilities of urban structures. A TV was on, and we were watching something (news?) on the background. In the span of 5 minutes there was a suicidal bomber, a mention of kamikaze pilots with some grainy historical footage, and a shot of a cargo jet having problems. Naturally, I came with an idea of using jet planes as guided missiles. Somehow later I wasn't surprised that I wasn't alone.

Open your eyes, look around, get scared. Security isn't.
