NSA Goes Ballistic Over T-Shirt Joke

The National Security Agency has demanded that a businessman marketing a joke t-shirt with a parody of their logo desist at once because of "copyright infringement." (More here.) Well, we all know the Obama administration has no sense of humor when it comes to anything that smacks of criticism -- especially when the criticism follows Alinsky's rule about ridiculing your opponent. After all, ridicule, according to Alinsky, is the most effective weapon for the radical:
Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
And the NSA is illustrating Alinsky's point with their attempt to stop the sale of the offending t-shirt which will increase the number of people who see it. What fun to watch this battle, especially if it ends up in the courts. All I can say is, "Go LibertyManiacs!" I hope you sell a million of these! I'm not a big message t-shirt wearer, but I'm ordering one of these.

I just ordered one, too. How can this be "copywright infringement" when we the people own the NSA, a governmental agency?

Good question, Janet. These bureaucrats think they are in charge and we are their slaves. That's the hallmark of socialism.

This is great - I just ordered one. Unfortunately, this may have put me on their "watch list"!

Siobhan, welcome to the "watch list" club!

I ordered one too in black with the logo in white. The NSA needs to get a sense of humor. They should probably buy a bunch to hand out as awards to their folks.
