So, as the whole world knows, Georgie is in Germany today -- the Frankfurt area, Mainz specifically -- and according to these articles from Deutsche Welle (and my coworkers, who inspired this post in the first place), no security expense has been spared.
Get a load of this:
- portions of FOUR public highways are shut down
- portions of the RHINE RIVER are closed
- air space within 60km is closed to non-commercial aircraft
- SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED
My coworkers told me that nearby hospitals have been evacuated (those sick patients are such a threat -- they might even be terrorists!!), people in the vicinity aren't allowed to leave their homes or open doors/windows in case a sniper shoots at their houses. The hoopla is ridiculous -- obviously, Gee Dub, there might be something wrong with your policies if you have to resort to such drastic security measures. Whoops, I just shared an opinion that doesn't jibe with His Agenda -- does that make me a terrorist?!
On another presidential note, I finished my Warholic tribute to Presidents' Day.
Here is a pic of the shirt (sorry the pics are so unmanageably large -- I don't know how to make them smaller. Help!):
Presidents are: Abe Lincoln (blue), Thomas Jefferson (orange), George Washington (purple) Andrew Jackson (green) and Woodrow Wilson (pink). Dubya not included.
