Dear Mr. Mazur,

You are living in America; a country of laws. When you break our laws you are punished in a court of law, just like Tim McVay was. He was a terrorist (whatever that means anymore) and he was punished for his crimes. It sounds to me as though your fears lie in concerns that our system works. It's not perfect, but it's better than anything else out there.

If you are truly concerned about vendettas then perhaps you should go back and review the previous Administration's tactics. "W" was a master at holding a grudge and punishing his enemies; just not in a court of law.

You need to chill, brotha.

Dear Mr. Mazur,
What are you afraid of? The world seeing that the US is not afraid? By changing the way we do things in this country, they (the terrorists) win.
Vendettas, so how many times did good ole "W" fire on of his Generals for speaking out or for just not seeing thing just the way he saw it?

Both of the previous posting omit one very big detail. The terrorist are NOT American citizens. They were caught while a state of war was in effect. Therefore they have no rights. President Bush was right to keep the scum out of our country and in gitmo. Next will be the administration giving them a presidential pardon.

First let me say this Guard Guy, if you're in the National Guard I would like to thank you for your service.

Now, all the garbage being said about President Obama's plan to try these guys in US courts. I would like to know where was that talk when President Bush was talking about the very same thing back in 2006? http://mountainsageblog.com/2009/11/20/bush-i...

Scott05201, Unlike alot of people, I don't care who the president is at the time a STUPID decision is made. I remember the talk that you are refering to. And I belived then as I do now that it was and is wrong. The big difference is Bush only talked about it and then continued with the tribunals. Obama on the other hand is acting on the talk.

Guard Guy, there have been others in the past who weren't US citizens but have done things on US soil and brought to trial here. This can be done and I stand by what I said,( By changing the way we do things in this country, they (the terrorists) win.

Lee,

The reason your premiums are so high is because the government is way too involved in health care.

If insurance could be decoupled from employment and we were allowed to purchase policies across state lines that we actually want (as opposed to as currently mandated by government) the premiums would drop significantly.

The solution is so simple, but like most things supported by Obama; the plan on the table accomplishes the opposite of its stated intent....If you want proof just ask Mass. how their plan is working out.(hint - it's a disaster - wow who could have seen that one coming??)

And remember, the insurance company who has the highest number of denied claims is not Aetna with 6%, but Medicare with 15%. Now who would you want insuring you? The company with 6% denials or the one with 15% denials? And you can sue only one if you're denied. And it ain't Medicare. And the Medicare model is surely the one for the Goverment option. A third floor bureaucrat who can't be fired making your health care decisions.

But it's an absolute shame when we send grown men and women to Washington who act like children. It's downright shameful when they can't even see that BOTH sides have good ideas! But no. The Senate bill was crafted by only one party with NO imput from the other party. "It my way or the highway." Maybe we should all go to Washington with padlocks and just make them all go home for a year. When Government isn't there, the country moves ahead on it's own.
