I am working my way through the Showtime Series Season 2 of Homeland. I realize that this is fiction, and I should not get worked up about this. But if only half of what is shown is based on some reality, our government is truly misguided.
Then I read about the Homeland Security Agency conducting a Panty Raid, and I realize that is actual reality and news, then it’s confirmed for me. Our government is truly messed up.
The panties, with “Take the Crown” and “KC” across the bottom, were set to be sold in Honig’s Birdies Panties shop Tuesday. But Homeland Security agents visited the Crossroads store and confiscated the few dozen pairs of underwear, printed in Kansas City by Lindquist Press.
“They came in and there were two guys” Honig said. “I asked one of them what size he needed and he showed me a badge and took me outside. They told me they were from Homeland Security and we were violating copyright laws.”
Granted, there was indeed a copyright violation of the Kansas City Royals intellectual property (on panties). I must say, I do not feel safer in my country now after reading this. Do they not have anything better to do?
And now on the good side: As much as I complain about our government, it’s still one of the best in the world. It ensures that I can sit here, sip my Sunday morning coffee and write this offensive insult, and there won’t be any SS troopers knocking on my door in 20 minutes to take me away as an enemy of the state and pull out my fingernails.

Real life is stranger than fiction these days….
I see that the creative folks there are already coming up with another/acceptable design. They will win in the end…..
Good to put your thoughts into perspective, Mr. Haupt. Your behind (or last) thought is indeed “the big picture.” About the SS at least. This was fun to read.
