Squirrelly Terrorists Strike at U.S. Infrastructure

Despite billions spent on homeland security, the Obama Administration is Bush-league when it comes to defending America’s vital power grid from home-grown terrorists. Known to experts as Sciurus carolinensis, these sly, suicidal saboteurs infiltrate transformer stations at will, denying thousands of loyal Americans their God-given right to power up their Chinese-made flat-screen TVs.

These anonymous terrorists have no respect for our flag or our traditions. They even stopped the NASDAQ Stock Exchange. What drives them? What is their motivation? We will probably never understand. But we have plenty of tactical and intelligence information on these home-grown monsters, and we certainly know what to do with them.

All we lack is the political will.

Are you listening, Mr. President, or has the power gone out at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
