For the sci-fi fan of a certain age who worries about doubling the national debt in five years and tripling it in ten, fears the budding criminalization of political and policy differences, and laughs at the idea that promising to cut $100 million in spending after signing a $1 trillion stimulus package that no one read and a $410 billion omnibus spending bill with more than 8,000 earmarks is setting a new tone of fiscal responsibility...

OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER FOR THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY: This post is satire. This post is aimed at making a political statement while also currying nostalgia for 1980s broadcast network television. This post does not represent the heretofore-lacking specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence. This post does not represent a threat to the life of President Barack Obama. It is an expression of dissent, protected under the First Amendment, regarding his policies and views about the proper scope and role of the federal government. This post does not represent an attempt to recruit and radicalize returning military veterans with combat skills, or Marc Singer. Any resemblance between the ideas contained in or the intent of this post and the ideas and intent of Timothy McVeigh or the militia movement of the 1990s in the mind of an intelligence analyst should result in an immediate second opinion by a more qualified professional in that field.
