Can someone explain me what do you mean by "Terrorist threat level:" ?

Terrorist threat level as determined by the US Department of Homeland Security. By the way, what's with the downvotes? Is my command not a good solution? I am showing a viable alternative that is shorter than the others.

I wonder why this site exists at all, and why do you parse it for a shell script? if [[ $(ter_t_level) == ELEVATED ]]; then Buy guns and ammo fi
