Warning Levels Hit SEVERE

The nation of Great Britain has a schemata of levels of Danger to its security. Prime Minister David Cameron has now raised it to the SEVERE stage in light of actions by ISIS in Syria and Iraq. This is an excellent idea and we propose the following schemata for Americans who are concerned about the level of danger to their lives:

1. No Level of Danger: Any level of higher taxes for the upper 1%.

2. Modest Level of Danger: Having Governor Rick Perry run for any political office.

3. Worrisome Level of Danger: Barack Obama explains his foreign policy in the Middle East or Anywhere.

4. Red Level of Danger: Republicans gain control of the Senate this year.

5. Severe Level of Danger: Being a black skinned American walking along the street–Anywhere in America!
