We are not in any more danger now than before,we are now more paranoid due to the talking heads in Washington looking for more ways to control the public(1984). All these "safeguards" only
hinder the people that obey the laws, true lawbreakers will not play by the laws. Like the old saying if you outlaw gun only outlaws will have them. Just remember this is a republic not a true democracy. We live here now we have a chance for a change maybe we can get the warlords out of washington.

Well, what ever happened to all of those "Orange Alerts" that we had every month from 2001-2004? They all just went away.

It is fear, we went from a nation that embraced "There is nothing to fear except fear itself."

To "The evildoers will kill us all if you vote the wrong way."

Pathetic!

Then again, we are not as strong as we think we are... try getting a rare hamburger in a restaurant! We are terrified of germs, and the sun, and various other things that are just foolish!

Bush has taken control of all of us...our possessions, our phone conversations and our movements...and he never went after the REAL producer of 911..OSAMA BIN LADEN!
The power figures of the BUSH administration wanted SUPREME power and it fell into their hands through 911...let's take out someone daddy couldn't mentality , tell Americans they are inundated by foreign terrorists and let's watch all their moves illegally, to view how this massive power can make us SUPREME!
Bush/Cheney and thugs got over on Americans big time! McCain is a problem from the Viet Nam war and wants just as much power to make up for what he lost in prison...so he tells us all the time...a big sign of a defective personality with severe anger issues!
If Americans DO NOT want more illegal control of their personal and private lives...MCCAIN IS NOT THE CHOICE!

Unfortunately, America has opened the gates to all kinds, all races, all religions, for many years. Its the melting pot. We have seen how easily terrorists from abroad and right here in America have jepardized our security. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about. I would rather be safe than sorry. Listen and watch til your hearts content.

Commie...you are smarter than that... did you take your meds is so over done on these blogs, your mind should be better able to create a novel response!
So you haven't heard about the taking of laptops and cell phones from whomever they want to and can keep same, for any period of time?
The only thing Bush has not done is place chips in our brains, but the year is not up yet!
You claim so much knowledge and reading and education regarding the government since the 70's, that I cannot beleive you are so unaware and ignorant of the Bush policies that have violated the constitution..wiretapping, bank account checking of anyone they choose..etc!
Everyone on this site is aware of all of that, but the super writer and self educated THENYCOMMIE!
Taking the meds..vita c..so I hope you get the point from my enhanced immune system!

Where do you get your sense of importance that anyone would want to wiretap you, view your bank account information, or care what you books you read from the library. Do you think the FBI and the CIA cares how your Aunt Ethel enjoyed the Kung Po Chicken last night, do you think they want to hear your heavy breathing as you call 1-900 sex lines. I don't think so. However, if there were a lot of phone calls received and made from Kabul, Damascus and Khartoum......yes the government would have a legitimate interest. Same thing if you were receiving bank drafts from Somalia...I think the government would have and interest.....AS THEY DARN WELL SHOULD!!!!! So where the heck are all these flagrant abuses? You say they're everywhere and well known to all. Perhaps you can point to a few of them. Knock off the left wing garbage and get grounded in reality. We are fighting a war that is unlike others before it....or would you prefer another 3,000 dead before we take action.

wow commie!! have you not seen zeitgeist, 9/11 conspiracies, 9/11 farenheight, etc.? i'm not saying everything on those documentaries are 100% accurate, but they should make any american question what their government is up to. and how much trust we should have for our government. they are taking advantage of the american public's incompetence. bush and cheney are liars and crooks. somehow if youre blind to what has been going on and believe our government officials are honest, then why is your name commie to begin with?!

jim? commie? come on out of your clubhouse. h..ys..t, i have destroyed you both .. and i was loaded!(public - if you listen closely, beavis and but.head are creating a funny joke because i used the word loaded .. and to anyone who doesn't get that, simply scroll up, down, wherever, and it will become clear).
for convenience, i will combine you 2 ladies with the name jimicom.
'drink gasoline.' weak.
'immature mental defect.' contextually, which words are verbs and which are nouns?
as for bank drafts and phone calls to/from the middle east, well, if jay, for reality, or whoever would be so stupid to ... forget it.
jimicom - no attacks for 7 years? WOW! only 53 more to equal pearl harbor.
as you pleasure each other reading commando mag, surely you 2 professors realize our borders are understaffed because w forgets, day after day, there is no draft. aint no one to watch nothin!
now, if you 2 chicks went all thelma and louise on the baddies, this world would be filled with
laughter.
jimmybi.ch - you sound so stupid, i think you may be a plant for someone. if not, you'r just a plant with girl lips.
communist - yeah you - communist! you are the boss of jim. feel the pride ...commie.
now, explain why you love karl marx. essay style.

i call myself immature because i'm a weak silly little twit that knows so little about what i write about and have so much room for improvement so that's why the shots at those like jim and commie. i'm so jealous of them and their worldly knowledge that i have to get loaded just to get through the day and night. in truth i couldn't make a pimple on eithers arse! but because i have nothing better to do with my life i will continue to play flame warrior with them and anybody else i believe to be superior to my simple intellect because i am the ultimate Keyboard Koward. i only wish they would respond to me because i'm so lonely and they are the only ones i truly enjoy playing the game with. come out commie, come out lil jimmy, immature wants to play-play. wait, i hear mommy calling, must be time for my fruit loops.
