well, the boston terrorist attacks are the latest proof that the government--at the federal, state and local level, cannot protect the american people. the FBI, which has spied illegally on americans in violation of the fourth ammendment, snooped on our e-mails and threatened to put librarians in jail if the revealed that the feds had demanded some american citizen's records, is now pleading with the public for infromation. benjamin franklin was right when he said thjose who are willing to sacrifice liberty in the hope of getting a lottle security will find themselves with neither. a man at a train station in new york said they could give him a cavity search and he would agree. that's exactly the kind of attitude the government likes. the government is predatory by nature and always wants more power. crap like the ''patriot act'' and other government intrusions have not made americans safer. look for more harrasing of innocent americans by the government. officials said there was no ''chatter'' by terrorsist groups reffering to the increased communications by terrorist groups the government eavesdrops on. well, the terrorists are not stupid, at least some awern't. if there goig to do an attack, the smartest thing to do is maintain radio silence. they know the government is montering them. you see the government's fancy hi-tech drones and eavesdropping failed to stop a terrorsit attack that killed and maimed americans. a lot of americans would be perfectly willing to live in a police state but i'm not. you also see that the iraq invasion/occupation and our current conflict in afghanistan are useless; they are not keeping us ''safe.'' i love how the politicians play games with semantics. ouir esteemed president at first declined and then called the bombings terrorist attacks. i think most folks already figured that out themselves. the president's handlers are very consious about image. they showed a photo of the president on the phone, as if he was in control of the situation. in truth obama was powerless and unable to do anything. we should have no more patriot acts or any other unconstitutional crap. in a free society, you have to live with a certain degree of risk. they have violated our rights with out providing the insepient ''security.' we shouldn't surrender our constitutional liberties for ''safety'' the government can't provide.
