Sam Kinison's version of this song is the best, if you ask me. He was taken from us far too soon.
TSA continually evaluates the latest threats and screening measures which are implemented based on the latest intelligence. As always, passengers may notice a variety of security measures at U.S. airports to include the use of physical bag checks, random gate screening, explosives detection technology, canine teams and behavior detection officers. We ask the traveling public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.
In other words, "if you see something, say something." I can't believe how much I'm seeing this meme lately…

Sooner or later, they find themselves, as in our case, economically stressed and militarily extended in wars they can't afford to win or lose.
While reading this, I was listening to the end of Amused to Death, Roger Water's album about a monkey watching TV. Seemed fitting.

We have a family that is spending $38,200 per year. The family's income is $21,700 per year. The family adds $16,500 in credit card debt every year in order to pay its bills. After a long and difficult debate among family members, keeping in mind that it was not going to be possible to borrow $16,500 every year forever, the parents and children agreed that a $380/year premium cable subscription could be terminated. So now the family will have to borrow only $16,120 per year.
Multiply by 100 million, and you have the US federal deficit…
