Last summer Raw Story reported that a Dallas-area Planned Parenthood clinic was attacked with a Molotov cocktail.

A reader responded, "Down with Christian Terrorism in America!"

In the Metroplex and everywhere else in terror-crazed America this used to be a crime. Now virtually everything anyone does is a terrorist act.

If you file too many lawsuits you're a "paper terrorist."

A loudmouthed bore is now a verbal terrorist.

According to Texas blogger TruthHugger "road rage" is now "vehicular terrorism."

In 2003 Senior Pentagon adviser Richard Perle resigned after Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh wrote "a series of embarrassing stories" about him. Perle described Hersh as "the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist."

"No one definition of terrorism has gained universal acceptance," says the Navy Department Library under the heading "Definition of Terrorism," making it easy to keep inventing new terrorists.

And thanks to mainstream politicians of both parties for giving the Royal President authority to "disappear" American citizens on mere accusations of terrorism, everyone is now a terrorist.

Libertarian news: In March, after the government prosecuted Bernard von NotHaus for the "crime" of introducing the alternative sound currency Liberty dollar, the FBI announced, "Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency [sic] of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism."

A website "that explains how the usage of cell phones in general can cause motor vehicle accidents" is called "Texting Terror."

The Intel Hub: According to government officials, you may be a terrorist if you: are a Tea Party activist, an Occupy activist, store seven days of food, have missing fingers, buy flashlights, pay cash at hotels, are a Ron Paul supporter, are a libertarian, believe in conspiracies, own precious metals, guns and ammo.

Yes, that sentence ended in a preposition. If you complain about it you're a grammar terrorist!
