Now that we have backscatter virtual nudity scanners in place in our airports, we have pat-downs and searches of bags, purses and backpacks happening at every public place from sporting events, amusement parks, concerts, schools to everyday places like shopping malls. Don’t believe me? Ask a security guard at a mall if they have a set of guidelines in place to “keep their environment free of terrorism”. Ever since 9/11, we have watched our elected (and appointed) Republican lawmakers help Geo BushWhacker shred our Constitution all in the name of “fighting terrorism”. And the Democrats are no better, we have seen them acquiesce (big word for quietly backing down) on anything that remotely challenges Bush’s reign of terror. And rightfully so. They know to what extremes Bush and his “terror fighters” will go to get what they want.
It is time for that to stop. It is time for America to take back what is hers. We need to stop the crap in Washington. To be honest I think we need to start over. We left England because we didn’t like the fact that England was making laws, imposing taxes and taking away our freedoms. We did the right thing and stood up for ourselves. And we did pretty damn good. Yet ever since WWI we have let our government and other “powers that be” dictate the direction our country has taken. We have gone from a third world country to top of the heap and we are on our way back down. We are a hair’s width away from a financial collapse and government backed bail-out that will put us into all into servitude.
<RANT>Awww heck with it. You probably aren’t even aware of the freedoms and liberties you’ve given up in the name of security. I try to talk with people about this stuff and no one cares .. or they think I’m nuts. If you don’t care you get what you deserve. If you think I’m nuts don’t come to me seeking advise on what to do when things go to hell. If you care you already know what I think .. </RANT>
