Do you know how often I heard this when I lived in Plattsburgh? All the damn time! I would like someone to please explain how a base in Plattsburgh would aid against terrorism? 

I don’t get people’s reasoning. They are just mad the base got closed and Plattsburgh’s economy went down the hole. They need a reason that it should have been kept open beyond is was good for our local economy. So yelling “terrorism” is the go to reason our government was stupid to close down an old and obsolete base. 

There is a weird self-centered nature of the local population when it comes to the PAFB and what it meant during the Cold War. I’ve heard people say with some sort of fucked up pride that Plattsburgh would have been on the USSR’s first strike list, as if that was anything to brag about.

So then the base closes and then 9/11 happens, and the local population misses their messed up security blanket, even though it could be argued that the base was just as big of a target as it was added security to the local population. I mean, it isn’t like terrorists are going to attack a closed military installation that has a couple businesses and a regional airport on it.

Basically, it is just self-important white folks being afraid of THE OTHER that is OUT TO GET THEM.

I remember when the “big” earthquake of April 2002 hit. We all ran out of the houses and looked towards the base, because that’s where it sounded like it was coming from. My mom was like “I think someone bombed the base.” I knew nothing about terrorist back then, but even I knew they wouldn’t go bombing the base, because what would be the point? After I woke up enough to think I figured out it was just an earthquake and went back to bed, as 7am was too early for me to be up.

But my mom wasn’t the only one thinking it, because I heard some of my neighbors mumbling about terrorist to. Because, for some reason, people want to believe their town is important enough that terrorist would want to bomb it. 

Like with the whole Westboro Church thing a few years ago. I think Plattsburgh was just happy we were considered important enough to garner a bunch of bigots coming to town. I’ve never seen a town so happy to have bad stuff happen to them. Like the Ice Storm is a point of pride, because it got us mentioned on national news. Maybe all towns are like this, but Pattsburgh is the only place I’ve lived for a long time and seen it occur.

Collegehumors’ new video is on point as always

It’s even funnier when you see the White Tears in the comment section saying EXACTLY what the actors say in the video.

Watching Monday Night War and suddenly wondering why WWE hasn’t just run a Fake CM Punk angle.

I mean, I’m not saying it would be good…

Bring back CM Skunk.
