"A pair of U.K. tourists were arrested after landing in Los Angeles on terror charges after joking on Twitter they were going to ‘destroy America’ and ‘dig up Marilyn Monroe.’"

Yes it's a sad day when we can no longer make jokes without getting arrested.
In this day and age, everything must be taken seriously.
When a person is so deranged as to kill your cat and scrawl "Liberal" on its belly....nothing can be taken for granted.
The inmates are in charge of the asylum.
See? Didn't I say the DHS were monitoring your tweets? You need to to watch what you say anywhere online, because it is all getting noted. Certain 'sensitive words' are being actively searched for. I can imagine that the words "destroy America" would set a few alarm bells ringing, but there are a whole lot more.
TOURISTS TERRORISTS - what's the difference! people say the darnedest things!
so saying something like "da bomb" would cause me to be watched?
The words "drill" and "strain" will get you watched!

I thought it quite an ingenious way of attracting traffic to hubs and wrote a hub about it
Now you know the buzzwords for getting (perhaps unwanted) traffic!
The thought crossed my mind to post that list here, but I wont.
LOL! I'm endlessly amused that the word 'mexicle' is on that list.
Edit: So I googled it, and while it is the gross Mexican treat I thought it was, it's also a gang! I can understand why it's on the list now, but the word is just so funny!
it probably all depends on WHO are these watchers? what kind of minds do they have? are they McCarthy types? or what? We need to find out, because I don't like their humorless world (remembering the horror stories of the 50s now)

He wants to give seniors vouchers, but tie the vouchers to the CPI rather than to health care product increases. Eventually, the vouchers will not cover...

....Why you choose not to believe? And is there a way that it can be done without attacking those who DO choose to do so? I ask because I truly want to understand, not because I want to fight my way into earning a reward for saving your soul. Thanks!
