I commented on a news item about a family in Ohio, who while visiting an Air Force Museum on vacation were stopped by AF Security, Grandma and Mom were forced out of the van at gun point, while the kids were screaming. It was all a big misunderstanding of course...
I know! It's so not funny, kids traumatised, the U.S. is turning into a police state, freedoms are curtailed, and so on. It's horrible. I'm actually afraid to leave the house.
So anyway, I left a comment on the news story post: "Gee! This is just like 'National Lampoon's Family Vacation'"! And someone got pissed and responded, "Idiocy is still well represented in our commenters, it seems."
Yes. Yes it is.
All's well that ends well, Grams and mum and the kids were not trying to break into cars in the parking lot after all and the informer has been fired by Homeland Security. (I made that last part up.)
I'm thinking lawsuit/settlement.
Someday they will all laugh about it.
