I’ve been crazy busy today, but I am not busy enough to read the news, then I decided I was not busy enough to post my furious thoughts. I recognized the picture in the news article immediately, my beloved Mackinac Bridge. Below are some pictures I took not even 2 weeks ago of the beautiful Mackinac (pronounced mack-in-naw).
My family and people who I care about cross this bridge on a VERY regular basis. I am sickened by the thought that some f*#cking, lowlife, coward, foreigner, terrorists planned an attack against the Mackinac.
The human sewege behind this terror plot are: Maruan Awad Muhareb and Louai Abdelhamied Othman, of Mesquite, Texas and Adham Abdelhamid Othman of Dallas. These cowards are charged with collecting or providing materials for terrorist acts and surveillance of a vulnerable target for terrorist purposes.
It appears a vigilant Caro, MI Wal-Mart associate took suspicion upon these men when they purchased about 1,000 tracfone pre-paid cell phones. The terrorists had plans to use the phones in a bomb. The good citizen/ Wal-Mart associate called the proper authorities and foiled the terrorists plans. I know the average pay of Wal-Mart employees so I am NOT wrong when I say this associate deserves a HUGE raise or atleast a bonus of some sort. For a few years, I was notsofortunate enough to work for Wal-Mart’s home office during my stint in the insurance business…I decided by my own accord, I was NOT Wal-Mart material…..but that was a whole lifetime ago…
Something along the lines of this story was the topic of conversation between my family and I while I was visiting in MI not but 2 weeks ago. Except it wasnt about the possibility of the Mackinac Bridge being a target, it was about how easily someone could enter MI from the Canadian Border by a boat. Airplanes are heavily monitored but if one was familiar with the Great Lakes, dodging the coast guard and gaining entry to the USA is very possible. Now that the a terror plot against The Bridge has been thwarted, maybe what I just mentioned will be looked at.
