Update on the terrorist mooninite invasion.

Disclaimer: Yes, I am likely overly agitated by this example of incompetence in regards to those which govern our cities and country as a whole. This exaggerated agitation comes as a result of me being a (self acknowledging) nerd and also from my tentative plans (now likely compromised) for decorating my own home town with LED throws and also, of course, my inherent distrust of the calmative cognitive ability of ‘the man’ to run our government well and in out best interest without trampling on the liberties and freedoms which we are supposedly afforded.

With this said, lets recap: post led advertisements and the government will detonate them and then will charge YOU with felony charges of placing a hoax device in a way that causes panic (whatever the efffff that means) and disorderly conduct (if you don’t fall in line boy, we will lock you up – Lady Liberty(?)).

In response to freelance, contract artist Peter Berdovsky posting homemade LED signs depicting popular (yet, obviously unknown to the “intelligent” people of Boston, MA) Aqua Teen Hunger Force characters, the Mooninites, the city of Boston (and the highly “intelligent” people that run the city) have arrested and are now charging Berdovsky and an ‘accomplice’ with the above listed charges stemming from a fear of terrorism on the beautiful (and ‘intelligent’) city of Boston, Ma.

Martha Coakley, the beautiful and ‘intelligent’ Attorney General of Boston has said “It had a very sinister appearance,” “It had a battery behind it, and wires” in reference to the advertisements in question…

Well… battery + wire = bomb… It is a shame that America is wasting so much money on munitions to fight a war when it turns out all you really need is a battery and some wire… like I said.. beautiful and… intelligent… I am glad it is these type of people who run our governments for us, otherwise we would face dangers and perils in the way of glowing and flashing lights threatening our FREEDOMS and securities more often!

From the equally intelligent Mayor, Mr. Thomas Menino: “”I just think this is outrageous, what they’ve done … It’s all about corporate greed.” He also told reporters “I think the city deserves a call, not from a press person, but from somebody in the corporate structure of Turner,”

– This sounds to me like Boston has mud on their faces about their complete and total inappropriate handling of some clever advertisements and is now looking for someone to blame for their own incompetence. Way to go Boston!

Mrs. Coakley also noted when asked about arrest stemming from the incident, potentially in other states, that since the offenses (?) occurred in Boston (that they could be arrested in other states). Arrested. For posting advertisements. Clever, illuminated, flashing (and sinister(?)) advertisements. Watch out advertisers, the feds are going to come after you!

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, another incredibly intelligent Bostonian, has even gone as far as calling the advertisements as “unconscionable” in a post 9/11 era!?!?!?! Are you F’n kidding me?! The root of the problem (if you didn’t already know) is this whole concept of living in a post 9/11 era. Yes be diligent and aware, informed and proactive in your securities… but stupid… no… when will we start arresting people for that?

We live in 2007. 2007. One more time… 2007… not a post 9/11 era… not any more than we live in a post Oklahoma City Era (no driving white vans near fed buildings?) or Waco Era (no one can practice freedom of religion because a few nuts?)… We do however live in an overly sensitive, delusional-ly paranoid era where everyone swears that everyone is out to get them. Yes, I know, there are crazy people out there, and yes, they would like to kill us. But guess what, people posting CLEVER LED SIGNS are not these people. Do not ostracize, isolate and banish these (smart) people because of your own ignorance of simple circuitry and delusional paranoid baseless fears. Do not stomp on freedom as a precautionary measure for when you do, you stomp on everything that our country supposedly stands for in way of freedom and in doing so you have successfully (as they have in Boston) made a mockery of our entire system of ethics and values. These people are ruining our country and unfortunately they have the power to do so and to quite you as they do.

The wonderfully ‘intelligent’ police commissioner went on to say “In the environment nowadays … we really have to look at the motivation of the company here and why this happened.” – Sinister motivations I am sure… just ask the district attorney… sinister… F.

Luckily reports from the Pentagon (yes, the mf’n Pentagon) have confirmed that they are monitoring the situation from headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO but have not yet dispatched any agents to the field… yet… lucky us.

So America, you are NOW safe… sleep tight, away from your fears of menacing glowing signs… Boston is on it, the Pentagon is on it, the entire media circus is on it and I am sure, before long, the Dubbya (W) will be on it…

God bless America (yes, even the idiots).

What more is amazing is the fact that this advertising campaign has taken place in multiple cities across the country without incident (other than some pictures being taken and some laughs being had)… that is until Boston got hold of it and the geniuses in command collapsed their cities infrastructure as a result. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco and Philadelphia – all without fear of TERROR!!! And then finally (though I am not sure it is actually ‘Finally’) Boston.. Boston, Boston, Boston…
